Cam Morrison returned from his injury with a bang.

What? A prospect report that doesn’t lead off with Cale Makar being Cale Makar?

For the record, the #HobeyNeedsMoreCale, so vote Makar for the Hobey Baker. Voting closes March 10th, and the last time we checked, Makar was in the lead. There’s just over a month left to cast your vote!

Ontario Hockey League

#17 - Brandon Saigeon (C)
Oshawa Generals (30-18-3)

I think I’m just going to let the following tweets describe how lethal Saigeon was this week:

Saigeon’s eight-point week kept him sixth in OHL scoring with 33 goals, 45 assists, and 78 points. Oshawa sits 4th in the Eastern Conference.

Western Hockey League

#21 - Nick Henry (RW)
Lethbridge Hurricanes (27-15-8)

Henry had two goals and an assist this past week:

I know they aren’t actual goal videos, but Lethbridge’s GIF game is too strong not to include them here. Henry sits ninth in WHL scoring with 69 points.


#16 - Cale Makar (D)
UMass Minutemen (20-5-0)

By his standards, Makar had a quiet weekend, only registering one assist in one game played. He did also fire four shots on goal, largely thanks to his brilliance on this shift:

#15 - Shane Bowers (C)
Boston University Terriers (10-12-3)


Bowers recorded an assist and four shots on goal against Makar’s Minutemen on Friday. Boston (5th in Hockey East) played its first game of the Beanpot last night, losing to defending-Beanpot champ Northeastern 2-1 in overtime. Bowers added a secondary assist on the team’s lone goal of the game:

Their next game is against UMass (again) this Friday. The Beanpot will wrap up next Monday.

#26 - Cam Morrison (LW)
Notre Dame Fighting Irish (14-10-3)

Notre Dame (3rd in the conference) lost twice, but Morrison returned to action this past weekend after missing the last couple of weekends with an injury. He didn’t look any worse for wear, since he scored a goal:

#4 - Nick Leivermann (D)
Notre Dame Fighting Irish (14-10-3)

Leivermann had the weekend off. Sigh.

#2 - Nate Clurman (D)
Notre Dame Fighting Irish (14-10-3)

Clurman had an uneventful week, but he had one shot on goal and hit the post:

#58 - Sampo Ranta (RW)
Minnesota Golden Gophers (11-12-4)

Minnesota split two games against Michigan. Ranta had one shot on goal. The Gophers are third in the Big Ten.

#25 - Denis Smirnov (RW)
Penn State Nittany Lions (14-10-2)

The Lions are on a bye-week, so we’ll check in with Smirnov next weekend. Penn State sits seventh in the Big Ten, because although they have 14 wins on the season, nine of their ten losses have come against teams in the conference.

#40 - Tyler Weiss (LW)
Nebraska Omaha Mavericks (8-16-2)

Weiss scored his second-career NCAA goal! He’s been on fire as of late:

Omaha is still second-last in the NCHC.


#51 - Nikolai Kovalenko (RW)
KHL - Lokomotiv Yaroslavl (38-15-4)

Kovalenko didn’t play in any of Lokomotiv’s three games (two of which were wins). The eam sits 3rd in the Western Conference.

#2 - Danila Zhuravlyov (D)
VHL - Bars Kazan (22-19-7)

Zhuravlyov played in all three of Bars’ games, but failed to record any points. Bars sits 18th in VHL standings, two teams out of a playoff spot.

#19 - Gustav Olhaver (RW)
Allsvenskan (SWE) - Tingsryds AIF (16-20-6)

Tingsryds went 1-1 this week. Olhaver didn’t have any points.
