Minnesota Wild Prospects Report: 11-23-2011

Good job, kid. Good job.

Wednesday certainly snuck up on us a bit, but Wednesday it is, and Wednesday means the weekly prospect report from the Wild. Wednesday. Had to get that last one in there. 

This weeks report serves as a reminder that the Wild have some pretty darn good prospects, and that many of them are not only playing well, but leading their respective teams to some pretty solid success. For example, Brett Bulmer's 10 points in seven games, all the while being mentioned in Team Canada talks for the World Juniors? This from a guy who was figured to be a third line grinder. 

That'll do just fine. 

Make the jump and check out the rest of the report. Also, make sure to check out Wild.com regularly. They do great work, and as a Wild fan, I'm not sure how you get by without going there at least a couple times a day. Enjoy.

Our thoughts:

 

  • 83 PIMs for Caron in 19 games? Hopefully his game is not as one dimensional as it looks, but still, that's an impressive stat. 
  • Gravoc still on a solid scoring pace. Another 7th round success? Certainly developing that way. 
  • Phillips is on a 17 game point streak. Yeah, really. 
  • Coyle has regained PPG status. Good to see. 
  • Haula's scoring has cooled a bit, but the Gophers are still red hot. Don't expect the scoring slump to continue. 
  • Lucia has 40 points in 19 games. Yeah... really. 
  • Zucker has not been happy with his game, yet is above a PPG. Solid development. He'll find his touch. 
  • Brodin, Granlund, and Larsson all are kicking ass and taking names in Europe. No big surprise there, I am guessing. 
  • Look at the goalies in the system. It's an embarrassment of riches. Ridiculous. 
Anything jump out at you, Wilderness? Whose stats are you most impressed with?
