Montreal Canadiens Prospect Roundup 8

Jamie Sabau

Nygren continues to shine, Vail brings the offense, and Archambault is looking legitimate.

Collberg still isn't getting minutes worthy of his talent. It's disappointing that he signed an extension recently, because not playing is no way to develop.

What a week from Nygren! The offensively talented defenseman just keeps ripping it up. This spectacular season in Sweden has to make you wonder if Nygren is close to challenging for an NHL spot. At 22, he's the same age as Greg Pateryn, who's in the Canadiens' lineup tonight.

Nystrom did all he could near the end there, but his team didn't make the playoffs in the Allsvenskan.

Pribyl couldn't hit the scoresheet in one game this week, but he's having a career year that may have re-invigorated his NHL hopes.

A second straight week for Vail with over a point per game, the young center has started to flash the talent that he showed early in the season since being moved off of defense.

Archambault is on the most impressive stretch of production in his career. He's hit the 30 goal mark for the first time, and set a new career high for goals, assists and points. He's also in the midst of his healthiest season in the QMJHL. Early on in the year, I was pretty sure that Archambault may have been let go by the Canadiens, but now he's going to make it difficult for them to ignore him.

Hudon also hit 30 goals for the first time in his career this week, but he still hasn't outproduced his assists from last season. He has 5 games to catch up there. Hudon is incredibly talented, the trick for him will be to stay healthy.

Dietz is unstoppable. The man just keeps scoring, and the Blades just keep winning. He now leads all WHL defensemen in goals, and is 3rd in points. It's going to be very interesting to see what he can do in the AHL next year. Does he make Morgan Ellis expendable?

As hot as Dietz is, that's how cold Thrower is. No points in 5 games for the prospect who's been most disappointing in my eyes this season.

Bozon is still on a playmaking kick that, but at least he's producing at a nicer clip this week. The offensively gifted sniper needs to recognize that shooting first is a good option.

Kristo's point streak finally ends at 8 games. Hopefully he can heat right back up and dominate the rest of the season and playoffs. Kristo leads UND with 4 game winners this year.

Not quite as impressive as he was last week, but MacMillan hit the scoresheet when Kristo didn't which is good.
