Here is a rundown of where our prospects are playing this year excluding those in Utica:
Petr Hauser- Sparta Prague
Jaromir Pytlik- Kladno
Nikola Pasic- Sodertalje
Chase Stillman- Peterborough Pete's
Will be interesting to see if he stays there the whole season. The trade last year did not play out well for him. If the Pete's are looking uncompetitive he could be moved again this year.
Josh Filmon- Swift Current Broncos
Jakub Malek- Ilves
Topias Vilen- Pelicans
Devils did not retain Etu Pakilla from last season but he will be on the same team as Malek.
Zakhar Bardakov- SKA
SKA off to an incredible start this year and are undefeated.
Arseni Gritsyuk- Avangard Omsk
Avangard are off to a terrible start this year with only one win.
Shakir Mukhamadullin- Salavat Ufa
Potentially could be paired up with former Devil Ryan Murphy who had one game in 2018. Legacy.
Yegor Zaitsev- Dynamo Moscow
Daniil Misyul- Locomotive Yasoslav
Artyom Barabosha- KA Moscow
Daniel Orlov- MHK Krylia
As this thread already attest to , we are lucky to have an expert in our midsts with Guadana.
Seamus Casey- U of Michigan
Luke Hughes - U of Michigan
Ethan Edwards- U of Michigan
At least it's going to be easy to keep track of these three this year.
Samu Salminen - U of Connecticut
Was originally slated for Denver but there were some "admission issues" which is a shame. Didn't make much of UConn last year watching Shlaine. Although the found consistency down the stretch. Speaking of which.
Artem Shlaine- Northern Michigan U
He hit the transfer portal and has an opportunity to start afresh.
Viktor Hurtig- Michigan State
Will be nice to be able to keep track of him easier this season.
Patrick Moynihan- Providence
Playing his senior year, he really found a grove last year and was an important player for PC.
Case McCarthy- BU
He really progressed last year. He isn't the biggest player, but he is solid and plays both ends of the ice well.
Charlie Leddy- BC
Always fun to see how players from the USNTDP get on when taking the step into the NCAA.
Cole Brady- U of Massachusetts
Another transfer for this year. He spent last year with the Arizona Sun Devils and basically put up terrible numbers all round. Surprising that UMass have brought him in, but they must see something in him. Might fair better behind a stronger team.
Will be doing my best to follow the players this year (leaving the KHL and MHL to Guadana, clearly got it all covered), but the job and family life making it more tricky.
