Prospects (and players in the system) in Action Today
- Ruslan Iskhakov (TPS)
- Robin Salo (Orebro)
- Collin Adams (UND)
Ruslan’s point streak is up to six games for TPS. Pull out a bit further on his season and you’ll see he has 15 points in his last 15 games. It’s been an incredible turnaround for a player that was a healthy scratch not too long into his start to life in Finland.
The young center has truly become the star TPS thought they had signed in the summer. It’s helped turn their team around from the bottom half last year to third in the Finnish Liiga this year.
After a heavy defeat to Oskarshamn a few days ago, Orebro is back on the ice to play Brynas. Salo has been eating up big minutes of late for Orebro as they continue their push for a top-three spot in the SHL. He’s only hit less than 20 minutes once in his last five games.
Twenty-four hours later, UND is back on the ice for the NCHC title game against second-ranked St. Cloud State. The two teams have only played twice this year. They split that record 1-1, with UND holding a -1 goal-differential across both games.
Over those two games, Adams holds a goal, two shots on goal, a +2 rating, and an 83% FOW efficiency. Both meetings were earlier in the year when Adams wasn’t scoring as regularly.
