Prospect Pulse: Top Performers of Last Week
I realize it is a little tardy, but I went through the respective Jets prospects who played last weekend and came up with the Top 3 performers, choosing one each from the AHL, ECHL and junior/college/etc. ranks.
The top three were:
Paul Postma (AHL)- It was a tough weekend for St. John’s, going 0-3 (two losses came in OT), but Postma was the model of consistency for the Ice Caps, getting 1 G, 3 A and registering 8 shots on net. The Jets need that kind of contribution from the blueline, so perhaps a call up is in Postma’s future.
Akim Aliu (ECHL)- The Eagles fared a little better than the IceCaps, going 2-1 over the weekend. Akim Aliu, who played in only two of the three games (its unclear why he didn’t play Saturday), still posted good numbers (2 G, 1 A and 8 shots over the two games). Aliu and Michael Forney are the only signed Jets prospects with the Eagles, though camp invitee Jake Marto is also with the club.
Mark Scheifele (OHL)- You couldn’t ask for a better return to junior for the talented centre. Scheifele put up 8 points (2 and 6) in 3 games back with the Barrie, hitting the ground running and showing no signs of a let down after his demotion. I would imagine other prospects will be hard pressed to keep up with Scheifele in this section, but I will try and keep the spotlight even.
