Habs Future for the Week of January 24th

The Three Stars of the Week:

1. RW Brendan Gallagher continues to be an offensive dynamo for the Vancouver Giants, scoring a goal and three assists over a pair of games. Gallagher opened his week by scoring a goal and then assisting on the game-winning goal in his team’s game on Friday in a 3-1 win. Gallagher’s team would see a lopsided defeat on Saturday, but Gallagher did his best to try and stage a comeback, assisting on two goals to make a 5-3 game in the 3rd period before his team finally fell behind 7-3, however Gallagher still managed to emerge +1 in the loss. Gallagher now has 33 goals and 33 assists in 50 games, stands 6th overall in WHL scoring and has 21 games left on his season to overtake his previous season-best of 41 goals, 40 assists.

2. RW Danny Kristo continues to make up for lost ground in the first half of his season by managing another spirited weekend of offensive flair. After a tough loss that saw his North Dakota NCAA team fall behind 4-0 to start the match on Friday night and an eventual 4-2 loss, Kristo channeled his talents to assist on three goals in a revenge game on Saturday night that resulted in a 6-0 victory, including helping teammate and Captain Joe Gleason score his first NCAA goal. In a taste of mathematical symmetry, this was Kristo’s third three-point game of the season, all occurring in the last nine games that Kristo has played. Kristo is four assists away from tying his rookie-best mark of 21 assists in a season

3. D Alexei Yemelin has begun to add some offensive impact to his season again, after 16 games without a goal, Yemelin scored his 8th of the season during the week and added one assist to raise his total scoring to 21 points, more than double what it was in his previous two KHL seasons. Yemelin has scored six power play goals this season, tying him for 4th-best for power play goals amongst KHL defencemen, he is 19th overall in scoring by a defencemen in the KHL.

Worthy Mentions: RW Alexander Avtsin added two more assists to his scoring totals, he is now 3rd in scoring among 19-year AHL rookies and both players ahead of him have played on North American ice their entire careers. D Morgan Ellis added three assists to his scoring totals, he is 4 assists away from matching his career-best of 25A in a season. G Karri Ramo won his only start and has now won fifteen of his last sixteen starts, he continues to lead the KHL in wins with 30, is 5th overall in save percentage at .925 and his 2.01 Goals Against Average is good enough for 3rd overall. Bubble prospect G Peter Delmas has raised his stock since making his way onto the Wheeling Nailers ECHL team, he has won all six of his starts, with a notable 1.67 GAA and .948 save %.

Question Marks: C Louis Leblanc and LW Phillippe Lefebvre each went without a point in 4 games with the Montreal Juniors on their week. D Mathieu Carle is not having an overly strong 4th AHL season, with only 16 points in 39 games. C Ben Maxwell and RW Aaron Palushaj go from scoring aces the previous week to barely adding offence, adding one assist and one goal to their respective totals. LW Andrew Conboy remains sidelined with a knee injury.
