- After a blazing start with Lethbridge (WHL), Dylan Cozens cooled off a bit, scoring 2 goals in 3 games but he is clearly the team leader. He is setting himself up well to play big minutes at the World Junior Tournament for Canada this year.
- Linus Weissbach playing with Alex Turcotte and Cole Caufield went as expected with Weissbach collecting 4 assists this weekend. Playing alongside these types of teammates are sure to inflate his numbers a bit for this year but it’s encouraging that he’s able to keep up and perform with such high end talent.
- Oskari Laaksonen chipped in 2 assists after a relatively slow start to the season for him.
- Tage Thompson continued his strong start to the season in Rochester, picking up 3 assists and also the shootout game winner on Sunday to cap a 3-2 Amerks win.
- Erik Portillo played just one game and was not tested much, averaging just 20 shots against through 3 games. He remains a perfect 3-0-0 on the year with a .933 Save %.
- Linus Cronholm fresh off a suspension scored 1 goal and 1 assist in 2 games of action with Karlskrona in the Allsvenskan league.
