Prospect Rankings and Movement

Samuel Bolduc ↑ : With his third professional goal, Bolduc leaped both Mitchell Vande Sompel and Robin Salo for fourth in my rankings. Third, on my list is Noah Dobson, and Bolduc is catching up quickly.

Now, this doesn’t mean that Bolduc will be better than Dobson, but it shows that the Isles 2019 second-round pick is an NHL-worthy prospect. He won’t make the jump anytime soon unless the Isles are decimated by injury, but I would certainly expect him to push (and probably earn) a spot on the 21-22 team.

Cole Coskey ↑: With his second goal of the season, a blast from the Ovie spot on the power-play, Coskey moves up to number eleven on my rankings. At number 10 is Otto Koivula. I don’t see Coskey passing him soon, but the fact that he’s ranking close to a border-line NHL’er is promising.

He’s only played half of the game for the Sound Tigers this year, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him be more of a constant in the lineup. The seventh-round pick in 2019 looks comfortable playing a man’s game after making the jump from the junior level this year.

Simon Holmstrom ↑: Another player who picked up a point yesterday versus the Wolf Pack. But the Isles first-rounder in 2019 isn’t anywhere near some of the other players in his Islanders draft class. Based on my rankings he sits 21st in my rankings.

His poor production rate at the AHL, SHL, and in the Allsvenskan isn’t helping at all. He’s a smart player but it’s not manifesting itself on the scoresheet just yet.
