The Prospect Thread: Pan out, bitches.
Didn't see a prospect thread and I don't want to post this info in the AHL thread. All prospect discussion here.
@MattSlovin: David Conte, Vice President of the New Jersey Devils, on negotiations with Michigan's Jon Merrill: "I don't think there are (any)."
@MattSlovin: Conte went on to say that the Devils respect Merrill's decision to remain in a "great" hockey environment in Ann Arbor.
@MattSlovin: Conte's comments certainly point to Merrill remaining at Michigan for his junior year. But Devils are excited about his future upside.
I think he's staying for his junior year and I don't hate it. Get a full, dominant season under your belt and then bring the rain in the pros.
Our last active CHL prospect this season is a dude by the name of Scott Wedgewood. He'll be in net for the Whale tonight against Kitchener in game one of their second round series.
Wedge posted a 4-2 record in the first round to go along with a 2.31 GAA and a .929 SVP.
