Prospect Weekly: Fire Away

Nicolas Meloche is starting to get comfortable and put points on the scoresheet now that he’s playing regularly for San Antonio. He fired a blistering shot which found the back of the net in the Rampage’s 5-4 overtime loss to Milwaukee as seen below. He’s playing top-four minutes and has been generating an average of 1.6 shots on goal in that 20 game span, 2.6 shots per game in his last five games. Meloche is making steady progress and has the confidence with moving the puck and using his size at that level. It’s too bad it took until January to get him on this path but the important thing now is to keep it going.

 

JC Beaudin is still playing for the Colorado Eagles as they work through their own injury issues. The Eagles still hold on to the top spot in the Mountain division with a 31-12-5 record but need to stop a five-game losing skid. Beaudin has scored 25 points in 27 games and plays heavy minutes, with some defensive play as seen below.

 

Nate Clurman finally scored his first goal in the USHL and has two points since joining Des Moines in a January trade.

 

Shane Bowers took the lead in freshmen goals in the NCAA with three goals over two games including the Beanpot finale as seen below and six goals in his last six games. That’s now 16 goals and counting for Bowers as he also leads all freshmen with a +14 and is third in shots on goal with an average of 3.47 a game. Quite the freshman campaign for the Avalanche’s newest, and youngest, prospect.
