Venturing outside of the AHL...

It's been a while since we last checked in on the rest of the Los Angeles Kings prospects not playing in Sweden or the AHL, so let's find out how they're doing.

As a refresher, click here to gauge their progress.

KHL

Name GP G А PTS +/- PIM ESG PPG SHG OTG GWG SDS SOG %SOG S/G FO FOW %FO TOI/G SFT/G HITS BLS FOA
74 Nikolai Prokhorkin 31 6 8 14 13 13 3 3 0 0 0 0 70 8.6 2.3 428 201 47 16:15 24.5 46 8 17


Prokhorkin is scoring at about 0.5 ppg in the second best league in the world, and his team CSKA is currently beating their rival SKA with 86 points in 35 games, even though they have the same number of wins overall (my, my look what a three point system can do).

NCAA

St. Cloud State University

22 Jonny Brodzinski 13 8 5 13 65 0.123 16-08 16 -4 5 0 2 0 1 0 1 2 3


The SCSU junior appears to be off to a pretty good start, though he could probably cool it with the penalties.

University of North Dakota

# Name GP GA PTS PTS/G Pen PIM PPG SHG GWG ENG
6 Paul LaDue 16 3 6 9 0.56 6 0.62 0 0 0


Taken in the sixth round in 2012, LaDue is now a sophomore at UND. Although UND is one of the NCAA's elite programs, which is likely inflating his point 9 points in 16 games is still pretty good for a defenceman.

Cornell

28 Lowry, Joel 11 4 4 8 22 0.182 -1 3-14 2 0 1 1 0 1 2 0 0 0 0 7


The under-heralded Big Red senior is actually currently the points leader on his team, despite minimal power play success. He's also been playing very disciplined hockey aside from one 10-minute misconduct, which I surmise is for fighting (the box score didn't specify) since that's illegal in college hockey.

QMJHL

Baie-Comeau Drakkar

# Name Pos GP G A PTS +/- PIM PPG SHG Pt/G PIM/G S DS FO
73 Valentin Zykov RW 13 5 9 14 0 16 2 0 1.08 1.23 40 25 3/4


Zykov suffered a hernia on November 1 and was only expected to miss four weeks, but hasn't returned to action yet. He remains doubtful for Team Russia at the World Junior Championships but was added to the team despite the injury:


OHL

Belleville Bulls

# Name Pos GP G A PTS +/- PIM PPG SHG Pt/G PIM/G
10 Jake Marchment C 15 3 4 7 8 12 0 0 0.47 0.8


Marchment is still serving a suspension for off-ice misconduct.

Guelph Storm

# Name Pos GP G A PTS +/- PIM PPG SHG Pt/G PIM/G
8 Zac Leslie D 24 3 19 22 -5 33 1 0 0.92 1.38


Leslie leads his team's defence in points and is the eighth-highest-scoring defender in the OHL. It seems like he's developing as a good puck-moving defenseman who can chip in offensively, which is nice to see.

Kingston Frontenacs

# Name Pos GP G A PTS +/- PIM PPG SHG Pt/G PIM/G
96 Spencer Watson RW 22 13 15 28 11 4 6 0 1.27 0.18
20 Roland McKeown D 26 0 8 8 3 18 0 0 0.31 0.69


Despite his diminutive size, Watson is going to be hard to ignore. Scoring at a 1.27 ppg clip, he has arguably been the best forward on his team. Unfortunately, he was injured after getting cross-checked from behind on Nov. 28th and has missed the last four games, dropping him to
39th overall in OHL scoring.

His teammate McKeown is off to a disappointing start this season offensively. In 26 games played, he has no goals and only eight points. It appears that he's also been taking a lot of penalties, which is not promising.

North Bay Battalion

# Name Pos GP G A PTS +/- PIM PPG SHG Pt/G PIM/G
18 Mike Amadio C 27 12 18 26 12 4 5 0 1.11 0.30


Third-round draft pick Amadio had a pretty good weekend. In two games, he picked up four points, including a goal and three assists. The third round pick is now in sole possession of second place in team scoring and is 30th overall in OHL scoring.

Ottawa 67's

# Name Pos GP G A PTS +/- PIM PPG SHG Pt/G PIM/G
40 Alex Lintuniemi LD 27 2 13 15 -7 12 1 0 0.56 0.44
21 Jacob Middleton LD 27 2 9 11 3 29 1 0 0.41 1.07


As previously noted, Lintuniemi has taken a major step forward in his development this year. After being invited to Finland's world junior camp over the summer, he's performed well enough to be named to the team.

Middleton, last draft's Mr. Irrelevant, has been unexceptional, picking up a few points since we last checked in on him back in October.

Plymouth Whalers

# Name Pos GP G A PTS +/- PIM PPG SHG Pt/G PIM/G
22 Matt Mistele LW 25 20 13 33 -3 19 8 0 1.32 0.76


Mistele dropped to 17th overall in OHL scoring (he was 9th at the end of October), but he's still producing at a good pace and still leads his team in scoring.

USHL

# Name GP GS MIN W L OTL SO GA GAA SV SV%
30 Alec Dillon 16 15 923:25:00 10 4 2 2 33 2.14 396 0.923


Dillon has cooled off a bit since a blazing hot start to the season, but continues to perform well. He's currently sitting second in the USHL in GAA and third in sv%, after starting 15 games and coming in once in relief. On Dec. 6th, he made 42 saves to help his team hold on for a 2-1 win.
