Bruce Bennett

The first prospect report for 2013 and surprise, the world hasn't ended quite yet!

Highlights

World Juniors 2013- Mario Lucia has one assist in four games for USA, so keep an eye out for him! Christoph Bertschy has two goals and one assist in four games for Switzerland!

Gophers ring in the New Year with No. 1 ranking; Haula week to week; CBA update - Another prospect out? Freakity frak...

Pats dump Warriors - Captain and Wild prospect Colton Jobke returns for the Pats.

With all eyes on the World Juniors, there just isn't much news. Just keep an eye on our international talents in Mario Lucia and Christoph Bertschy.

Prospects Of The Week

Mikael Granlund vs. Jason Zucker

Jason Zucker continues to be red hot, scoring two goals and four assists in this week's four games. He leds the Houston Aeros in goals and points, and while I have always advocated that he was purely a third liner (albeit a talented one), scoring at the pace he is gives me pause.

But you also have Mikael Granlund, who recently just returned from an injury and has scored three goals and three assists in the last four Aeros games. He was also hyped up to be a first line player, and hasn't shown a single thing to make you doubt so.

I do like Zucker's tendency to shoot (13 shots in the last four games), so while Granlund has two more points, I'll give the Prospect of the Week to Jason Zucker.

What about you?
