With all the Bruin's excitement this year, it's also worth updating the Baby B’s for their good play as they recently won the Atlantic Division regular season. Georgii Merkulov led the team in scoring his rookie year (24 goals, 55 points) setting himself up as a decent prospect moving forward. Fabian Lysell had 14 goals and 23 assists in 54 games at only 19, then 20 years of age – which I assume is well below the average prospect age in the AHL (I’m guessing around 22-23 since AAA in baseball is 23-24 and baseball is a bit older sport). A good start for Fabian imo but obviously depends on how he builds moving forward. Team MVP Brandon Bussi was outstanding in goal and had a cup of coffee with the big club at the end of the season. Mason Lohrei had one assist in the 5 regular season games he played. As division champ, they start their playoffs in the second round this Friday.
Prospects playing for Providence now:
  • Lysell
  • Frederic Brunet
  • Brett Harrison
  • Merkolov
  • John Beecher
  • Lohrei
  • Marc McLaughlin
  • Bussi
Should be intereresting to see how they do in the playoffs.

Dans Locmelis scored his first goal at the World Hockey Championships to help Latvia upset Sweden.
While none of the teams were exactly star-studded, it leaves a final four of USA, Canada, Latvia and Germany.
I don't think many would have predicted those last 2 teams.
