Minnesota Wild Prospects Report - February 1, 2011

Once again, our good friends at Minnesota Wild Media Relations have made our jobs easier and shared with us (to share with all of you) the updated prospects report.

While the Wild were on their ASG break, Brent Burns was not playing defense and Martin Havlat was actually backchecking, the Houston Aeros wrapped up one of the best months in franchise history and moved into first place in the Western Conference of the AHL.

The Aeros earned a pair of extra session wins last week, topping Syracuse 4-3 in overtime on Wednesday and Abbottsford 4-3 in a shootout on Friday. C Chad Rau led the squad with three points (0-3=3) while G Anton Khudobin stopped 41 of 47 shots to earn both victories. Overall, LW Robbie Earl owns 33 points (16-17=33) to lead the Aeros. Khudobin owns a team-best 15 wins while G Matt Hack­ett leads in goals against average (2.47) and save percentage (.913).
 
Aeros Record: 28-19-1-3, 60 pts., T-1st in West Division and Western Conference
