Prospect Rankings and Movement

There isn’t much movement in the standings to talk about of late (Iskhakov might be able to catch up to Parker Wotherspoon in the no.8 spot soon) so I thought I’d go over the top guys playing with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers:

  • Samuel Bolduc – 4th OVR
  • Simon Holmstrom – 20th OVR
  • Otto Koivula – 10th OVR
  • Cole Coskey – 11th OVR
  • Mitch Vande Sompel – 6th OVR
  • Bode Wilde – 7th OVR

My rankings work based on points production at every level of hockey. So while seeing Simon Holmstrom at 20th overall might look rough, we have to consider he didn’t have a great first season in the AHL in terms of scoring.

Holmstrom’s 15 points in 46 games had him scoring at a 0.33 points-per-game pace. That’s not good and is a big factor in why he’s so low. But he’s also very young. He’ll only turn 20 this May but will have two “full” seasons of AHL hockey under his belt.

Vande Sompel is up there thanks to some impressive AHL stats (174 points in 218 games) and some solid AHL number (62 points in 134 games). But he’s getting up there in age. He just turned 24 in February so he won’t be in my rankings next season.

Which is why Sebastian Aho doesn’t come up. The fifth-round pick from 2017 is 25 (as of February 17) and so isn’t considered a prospect anymore. At least not by me.
