Colorado Avalanche prospect report: Tyler Weiss scored his first NCAA goal

Oh, and Cale Makar continued his stellar season.

Omaha Athletics

Yes, the headline could have just been about Cale Makar, again, but Tyler Weiss had an interesting enough weekend (really, it was one game) that I felt compelled to lead off with it. Aside from a couple of players making impacts with their teams, this was a fairly uneventful update (compared to last week’s, anyways). Nevertheless, here is your prospect report from the past week!

Ontario Hockey League

#17 - Brandon Saigeon (C)
Oshawa Generals (28-15-2)

The Generals won two more games this week, increasing their win-streak to five games, and remain third in the Eastern Conference. Saigeon had three points (one goal, two assists) to give him 69 points on the season in 45 games. He’s slipped down to sixth in league scoring, but his offense hasn’t cooled off, which is great.

Here’s Saigeon’s lone goal — a pretty nice shorthanded tally for the Gens:

Western Hockey League

#21 - Nick Henry (RW)
Lethbridge Hurricanes (24-13-8)

Lethbridge went 1-1 this past week. Henry added two assists, to give him 65 points in 46 games. He remains sixth overall in league scoring, but the Hurricanes fell to third in the Central Division as Red Deer jumped into second.


#16 - Cale Makar (D)
UMass Minutemen (17-3-0)

I got Makar’s season stats wrong last week (apologies for that!), but thankfully, he had another big weekend, so I had to update them again here. Massachusetts defeated Northeastern 6-1 before falling to them the next day. Makar had three assists in the Minutemen’s win (he went pointless in the loss).

Makar’s three assists give him a new grand total of 27 points in 22 games (eight goals, 19 assists), which eclipses all of his previous career-highs in all three categories. Here are his points from the weekend:

#15 - Shane Bowers (C)
Boston University Terriers (8-9-3)

The Terriers only played once last week, losing 4-3 to Quinnipiac. Bowers scored his 3rd goal of the season, giving him five goals and eight points in 15 games this year.

#26 - Cam Morrison (LW)
Notre Dame Fighting Irish (13-8-2)

Notre Dame split a two-game series against Wisconsin this weekend, but Morrison did not play.

#4 - Nick Leivermann (D)
Notre Dame Fighting Irish (13-8-2)

Leivermann dressed in both games, but had zeroes across his stat-line.

#2 - Nate Clurman (D)
Notre Dame Fighting Irish (13-8-2)

Ditto for Clurman. (Sigh.)

#58 - Sampo Ranta (RW)
Minnesota Golden Gophers (9-10-4)

Minnesota lost twice to Michigan State this past weekend. Ranta didn’t record any points, but he did fire five shots on goal in two games.

#25 - Denis Smirnov (RW)
Penn State Nittany Lions (13-9-2)

Penn State lost back to back games against Ohio State. Smirnov recorded an assist in the first game off the draw here:

Smirnov also had six shots on goal this weekend.

#40 - Tyler Weiss (LW)
Nebraska Omaha Mavericks (7-13-2)

It was a pretty eventful weekend for Weiss! First, he scored his first career NCAA goal in the first game of the weekend against the North Dakota Fighting Hawks.

Then, Weiss laid an illegal hit from behind on an unsuspecting Hawk with just over a minute left in the third period. The NCHC suspended him for a game, and he was ineligible to play in the series finale against North Dakota. The Mavericks still won.


#51 - Nikolai Kovalenko (RW)
KHL - Lokomotiv Yaroslavl (32-15-3)

Thanks to the KHL All-Star Game, Lokomotiv only played once this week (a 5-1 win over Kunlun), but Kovalenko did not dress.

#2 - Danila Zhuravlyov (D)
VHL - Bars Kazan (20-18-6)

Bars won two games before dropping their last game of the past week to CSK VVS, but Zhuravylov did not play in any of them.

#19 - Gustav Olhaver (RW)
Allsvenskan (SWE) - Tingsryds AIF (14-18-6)

Tingsryds lost twice this past week. Olhaver played in one of the two losses but failed to record any points.
