New, comments

Luchuk, Batherson, and Kelly standout this week.

Ottawa Senators v Minnesota Wild

With a handful of prospects returning from the World Juniors, and the NCAA getting back into the swing of things after the Christmas break, there’s lots happening in the world of Sens prospects. The Belleville Senators also just had a winning week, with a 2-1 record.

Biggest Standouts

Aaron Luchuk

Luchuk’s point-per-game pace has dropped from Windsor (1.70) to Barrie (1.27), but had a four point night this week. Playing on a line with top 2018 prospect Andrei Svechnikov, Luchuk’s Colts are reinvigorated after adding Minnesota’s Dimitri Sokolov at the deadline and are looking to go on a long playoff run. Luchuk sits third in league scoring and ranks fifth in points-per-game.

Drake Batherson

Over in the QMJHL, Drake Batherson has enjoyed the move from Cape Breton (1.63) to Blainsville-Boisbriand (1.80). Playing on a line with the only player ahead of him in points-per-game, the undrafted Alex Barre-Boulet, Batherson is currently on a 12-game point streak and continues to thrive. Like Luchuk’s Colts and Brown’s Rangers, Batherson’s Armada are hoping to go on a deep run to win the QMJHL President’s Trophy.

Parker Kelly

Poor Parker. As Prince Albert sits on the outside looking in, Kelly was probably hoping to be traded to a contending team. However, as a younger player, he could still contribute to the Raiders next season. He’s 3 goals and 7 assists away from setting career-highs.
