Marek Hrivik, a prospect that most fans have heralded as another undrafted gem, had a strong game last night, notching a pair of third period assists in the Whale’s 2-1 victory over Worcester. Hrivik was credited with the secondary assist on Chad Kolarik’s game-tying powerplay goal 1:23 into the third period, and picked up the primary assist on J.T. Miller’s game winner five minutes later.
At the other coast, the only other prospects in action last night were Shane McColgan and Michael St. Croix, both in the WHL. McColgan added to his impressive totals with a goal and an assist in Saskatoon’s 5-1 win over Moose Jaw, while St. Croix notched another assist in Edmonton’s 5-2 win over Kamloops.

I’m not one to speculate, I’m just one to use logical reasoning to come to a conclusion. Unfortunately in this post, my logical reasoning is leading to speculation, so take this with a grain of salt.

Hockey’s Future released its updated tea prospect rankings, and the Rangers have fallen quite a few spots to #17 overall. A few years ago, the Rangers were much higher in these rankings, but have dropped as many of their top prospects (Michael Del Zotto, Ryan McDonagh, Carl Hagelin, etc) have graduated from the prospect ranks.
One of the main strengths HF notes is that the Rangers...

The Whale made a pair of roster moves to help shore up the goaltender position. Whale goaltender Jason Missiaen was sent to the Greenville Road Warriors of the ECHL, while the Whale “recalled” Bryan Hince from Greenville. Recalled is in quotes because Hince himself had to be signed to an AHL PTO. For all intents and purposes it’s a recall, but there was some additional paperwork...
Last night, JT Miller scored a late third period goal to give the Whale a 2-1 over Worchester (2:40 mark)...
Miller also had an assist in the game to give him five points (3g, 2a) in the last four games.
Chris Kreider, who was stopped on a breakaway in the first period, was again held off the scoreboard and is now pointless in his last nine games dating back to November...
Tommy Panico could be a draft sleeper.
Even if the entire season is lost (unlikely), the NHL will still hold it’s 2013 draft. The Rangers first pick will likely draft in the later half of the second round, so it’s extremely likely they won’t be drafting someone who gets a lot of hype. Instead, they will be looking for more of that second round magic that has worked so well...
