Mid-West Hockey Leaue
2020 Prospect All-Stars
First we currently have 41 rostered Prospects. Of those 41 just 41% (17) of them played in the NHL during the 2020/21 regular season. The best of the best are going to make the Prospect All-Star team.
First here are 11 Prospects who played in the NHL but are not going to make our All-Star team.
Charlotte’s Barrett Hayton played in 20 games and looks to be a good bet to get a MWHL contract but he did not show enough to be an All-Star and may need another year of seasoning before he sees MWHL game time.
Cody Glass is a Cincinnati Center prospect. He played half a season and showed a lot of skill. He will be signed and will likely be a spot player for Cinci in 2020/21.
Jagr’s Rasmus Sandin is a defenseman who played in 28 game for Toronto. He is likely to get signed but look for him to spend another season learning before he settles into a defensive slot for Jagr.
Chicago’s Kirby Dach is a real player. He will be signed and he will make Chicago’s line-up. He is a future top 6 Center but will likely be a 3rd or 4th liner in 2020/21.
Oliver Wahlstrom also out of the Chicago system. Wahlstrom will be a tough decision for Chicago. Does he get signed or do they open a slot for the current draft class that is touted to be very strong. My guess is they will sign him since they have already traded away their 1st round prospect pick. Time to re-load.
Noah Dobson is a Toledo stay at home defenseman prospect who played in 34 games. He has not shown much offense (yet), but he is a solid defender. He will be signed and he will play a support role for Toledo in 2020/21.
Toledo also has a top Center in Morgan Frost. Frost is not quite ready for Toledo but he needs to be signed or he will be picked up in the Auction. Frost looks like he could be a late bloomer and maybe 2 years away from full time MWHL success.
Adam Boqvist, a Yellowstone prospect will be signed and will play in 2020/21. He will need another year to grow, but he very well could be a top pair defender in a couple of years.
Gabe Vilardi is a Gilbert prospect. He only played in 20 games but Gilbert looks to have already made a decision to sign him. Gilbert has already traded for an extra pick in this year’s Prospect Draft. That 3rd pick seems to indicate Vilardi will get his contract.
LA’s Great Danes have Igor Shesterkin a goalie who showed up late and played in just 12 games, but in those 12 games he showed he is here to stay. Likely to be LA’s #2 goalie but he could be a really elite pick going forward.
Thunder Bay’s Jack Hughes played in 61 games showing flashes of skill, but also showing he needs more time before he moves into the Thunder Bay lineup. He will be signed but he will need another year of development.
