HW's Weekly Prospect Report 12/11/2012

Bruce Bennett

Highlights

Team Rankings: Minnesota Wild owns impressive group of prospects with elite potential - Guess which team made #1?

Don Lucia gets nostalgic; Lucia on son, Wild prospect Mario Lucia; Jason Zucker clutch againn - A few tidbits on Mario Lucia and Jason Zucker

Jewish ice man skating strong for Houston Aeros - Yes, a Jewish man! Thanks Heather for the catch.

Four players removed from Harvard's roster - Stephen Michalek sounds to be clear of any problems but looks like he'll be back to Harvard soon enough

Harding grateful to doctors, Wild for support after MS diagnosis - Although not really a prospect, he deserves recognition, my favorite Wild goaltender ever.

Wild Prospect Handbook has a made a facebook page so "like" it here! We also made a twitter @wildhandbook.

Prospect Of The Week

Louis Nanne

Not the best week for Wild prospects.

Besides a few, the majority of prospects had a slower week than previous. Bussieres is still producing but at the rate he was. and Stephen Michalek's debut in the USHL was not a good one.

One of those few that had a good week was Mario Lucia, but despite one goal and two assists in two games, Louis Nanne has him beat for the prospect of the week. Nanne scored a hattrick against Merritt, and then a goal in his next game, ending the week with four goals in two games. It would be his second hattrick of the season.
