Plenty of action in the pipeline this past week, including a performance from Nick Baptiste that may be worthy of a call-up sometime soon.

Tuesday, October 24th

Marcus Davidsson helped Djurgarden top Orebro 2-1 with a goal in the second period. He rips a shot over the shoulder for his first goal of the year.

Brandon Hagel puts away the rebound for his fourth goal of the season. He leads the Red Deer Rebels in points (17 by the end of the week).

Wednesday, October 25th

The Amerks down Laval 5-2 on the backs of Colin Blackwell and Nick Baptiste. Baptiste had a goal and two assists on the night.

Defensemen Casey Nelson and Brendan Guhle also picked up points. Nelson a goal and Guhle had his second assist of the season.

Vasily Glotov picks up a secondary assist in Shawinigan’s 5-2 loss to the Huskies.

Thursday, October 26th

Victor Olofsson has a helluva shot, doesn’t he? Frolunda falls to Vaxjo 7-3.

Austin Osmanski makes an outlet pass to Logan Denoble, who works around a defender for a pretty goal. Petes win 5-3 over Saginaw.

Friday, October 27th

In the first game on the day, Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen and LeKi fall to KeuPa HT 3-0. UPL stops 28 from a total of 30 shots.

Nick Baptiste scores two straight goals to help Rochester come from behind and win 4-3 in overtime over Laval. The goals were Baptiste’s second and third on the year.

Vasily Glotov scores his eighth goal of the year against Quebec. The goal opened the scoring and helped Shawinigan propel to a 5-3 win.

One of the biggest nights of the year for Cliff Pu thus far came Friday night. Potted a goal and added two assists in London’s 8-2 win over Flint.

Casey Mittelstadt did Casey Mittelstadt things all over Clarkson in the latter half of the game. The two assists bring him to a point-a-game pace, with six in six.

Max Willman picks up his first point of the year with an assist in Brown’s season-opening 4-1 win over Yale.

Casey Fitzgerald nor Jacob Bryson were able to get a point in Providence’s 2-1 win over Boston College; although, Fitzgerald did apply six shots on net to lead the Eagles.

Brandon Hagel continued his consistent output on Friday with a goal and an assist. His fifth goal of the year came late in the third to force overtime and helped Red Deer beat Spokane 4-3.


Hagel was all over the ice on Friday, as he should be at the WHL level.

Saturday, October 28th

Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen not able to pick up a win once again this week. He drops the match 4-2 to KeuPa HT. Stopped 29 shots and was taken out early in favor of the extra attacker.

Rasmus Asplund got back on track Saturday with a two-assist performance versus Byrnas. Asplund now has nine points in 15 games this year. Farjestad wins 2-1

Victor Olofsson scores another goal this week. His sixth of the year is another example of his incredible shot. Frolunda takes the game 4-0.

Casey Mittelstadt adds yet another assist on the week. Seven points in seven games now for the freshman. Minnesota wins 2-1 over Clarkson.

Jacob Bryson picks up an assist in Providence’s 3-0 win over Boston University. Bryson also added six shots on goal in the matchup.

A Casey Fitzgerald setup finds its way to Christopher Brown for the lone Boston College goal in a loss to Denver.

Fitzgerald another defenseman in the pipeline for the Sabres that has been creating a lot of offense from the blue line this season.

Rochester can’t hold on for the win against Syracuse. They fall 3-2 as C.J. Smith adds an assist for his fourth of the year.

Switching over to the CHL for the remainder of the post, Cliff Pu scores his third of the year in London’s 3-2 SO win over Hamilton.

Sunday, October 29th

Austin Osmanski adds a shorthanded assist in Peterborough’s 8-3 win over Hamilton. Osmanski has eight points on the year and is two away from a career high in the OHL.

Pu and Glotov are not able to pick up any points on the day, but Brandon Hagel is at again with an assist in Red Deer’s OT loss to Kootenay.


Once again another big shoutout to @SabresProspects for his coverage and highlights.

I hope to have a ranking done soon, I’ve been rather busy covering BG Hockey this year so I can’t get as much work done on the weekends as I would like.

Come back next week for another update. Follow me on Twitter @MarkoLWOS
