A rough week for the Moose, Kyle Connor cleans up the Big 10 end of season awards, and a look at how NCAA tournament play has gone to this point. This and more in this weeks Jets Prospects Update.
It was a rough week for the Manitoba Moose, who’s poor depth has been stretched to the limit by injuries among their own players as well as those to the Jets that have required call-ups. Things began with the team losing twice to an Iowa Wild team who, despite being a similar basement dweller, seem to have the Moose’s number this season. Then they followed that up by losing twice more to the Grand Rapids Griffins by a combined score of 12-3.
While it’s been their one saving grace more often than not this season, goaltending was definitely a bit of an issue this week. Connor Hellebuyck started two games allowing 11 goals on 53 shots while Eric Comrie also saw two starts and allowed 6 on 59.
Leading the way in this low scoring week for the Moose was Chase De Leo with one goal and one assist. Also putting up some points were, Nic Petan(1G), Axel Blomqvist(1G), Austen Brassard(1A), Ryan Olsen(1A), and Brendan Kichton(1A).
Brendan Lemieux had one assist in two games played.
Jansen Harkins had one goal and one assist in three games played.
Matteo Gennaro had one goal and two assists in four games played.
Michael Spacek had one assist and Nelson Nogier was held pointless in three games each for the Rebels.
The Big 10 regular season came to an end this past weekend and Connor went out with a bang scoring four goals in his last two non-playoff games of the season. Connor cleaned up in individual awards within the division and is likely a front-runner for the Hobey Baker as the nations top college player.
