Greetings, Jackets fans – it’s another week in the world of Jackets prospects. We’re closing in on the CHL’s holiday break and the World Juniors are coming quickly. Let’s start with an award. It was announced on Monday that Anton Forsberg was named the AHL’s Goaltender of the Month for November. After being sent back from Columbus, Anton went 8-0-0 with a 1.76 GAA and a .936 save percentage.

On to the Falcons’ games. Starting off on Friday night against Norfolk, early in the first Marko Dano scored his third of the season off a scramble in front. Seven minutes later with the Falcons on the power play, Austin Madaisky’s slap shot was stopped and TJ Tynan picked up the rebound to find Ryan Craig in front. He scored with the entire side of the net open. A minute twenty later, the Admirals scored to the period 2-1. Trent Vogelhuber scored the game winner very early in the second period  (for some reason they didn’t think it deserved to be in the highlights). In the 3-2  victory, Forsberg made 27 saves. The win also set a new franchise record as it was the Falcons 10th in a row. Here are head coach Jared Bednar’s and Anton Forsberg’s postgame comments.

November 24-30 CBJ Prospect Week in Review

Posted by CBJProspects on December 01, 2014
Columbus Blue Jackets, Prospects / No Comments

Greetings all and happy holidays! Starting off in Springfield as we usual we do those Falcons just keep rolling along. Beginning last Wednesday in Lehigh Valley, it was an all-AHL contract goal scoring party with Mike Hoeffel, Trent Vogelhuber, and Jamie Sifers scoring for the Falcons before Steven Delisle would put an end to Anton Forsberg’s shutout (no seriously). In the 3-2 victory Anton stopped 23 of 25.

Friday night it was off to Worchester for a game with the Sharks. Mathieu Gagnon opened the scoring before the Sharks scored two (with Anton Forsberg doing his Marc-Andre Fleury impression on the second). Marko Dano tied the game 37 seconds after the Sharks second goal when he gathered a loose puck and snapped a shot over the Sharks’ goalie’s shoulder to make it 2-2. Nathan Oystrick scored the game winner when TJ Tynan started a rush and then sent a pass to Oystrick for his first with the Falcons. Anton Forsberg stopped 33 of 35 in the Birds eighth straight win.

To close out the week, the baby birds welcomed Alexander Wennberg who was sent down from the Jackets. Another new face, the newly signed (by the Falcons) Corey Cowick opened the scoring before two thirds of the Jackets 2013 1st round (Wennberg and Dano) would get together to set up Dominic Monardo for his sixth of the season. Later in the period, Sean Collins scored his team leading ninth goal of the year. A minute later Monardo struck again to make it 4-0. Colin Miller spoiled Anton Forsberg’s shutout late in the second but the goaltender made 21 saves in the franchise record tying win. Here are postgame comments from Coach Jared Bednar, and Alexander Wennberg after the game.

Hello all! Time again for the CBJ prospect week in review!

Starting off in Springfield as we usually do the Falcons faced off against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers for the first time since their brawl filled game last week. Kerby Rychel opened the scoring 1:27 into the game with Dana Tyrell and Michael Chaput assisting (remember this trio you’ll be hearing this a lot tonight). Later in the first, Sean Collins scored his second penalty shot goal in a row giving him six on the year. Two minutes later, Rychel, Chaput and Tyrell struck again and gave the Birds a 3-0 lead going into the first intermission. After a Sound Tigers goal in the second, Michael Chaput scored on the power play early in the third. Then, Lukas Sedlak scored a few minutes later to give the Falcons a 5-1 lead before Ryan Pulock would do what he does best – scoring on the power play making it 5-2. Anton Forsberg made 23 saves for his fourth win of the season.

Greetings again, all! It’s time for your weekly update on the future Jackets with this being our first update with everyone playing games that matter.

Starting off in Springfield as we usually do, the Falcons opened with a rescheduled game (a rare moved forward game) against Albany. 1:10 into the game the Captain Ryan Craig skated in on the side firing a shot to make it 1-0. Six minutes later Craig would strike again, but on the opposite side, when a Devils player had a shorthanded breakaway but could not control the puck. TJ Tynan was able to corral it and started a two on one with Craig finishing. Sadly, the Devils would score four straight to make it 4-2. Oscar Dansk made 13 saves in the loss.

Up next the Falcons faced the baby Bruins who, with ex-Falcons goalie Jeremy Smith, entered the game with a 153:08 shutout streak. After giving the Bruins a 2-0 lead Jerry D’Amigo scored his first of the season when he potted one from the right circle. Ryan Craig and Kerby Rychel got the assists. Scott Munroe made 16 saves in the 3-1 loss.

To close out the week it was off to Bridgeport for a game with the Sound Tigers. In the 4-3 victory, Dana Tyrell scored two goals in a game that saw Kerby Rychel earning his first multi -oint game as a pro. Corey Cowick and Jerry D’Amigo scored the Falcons other goals. Frederic St Denis and Thomas Larkin were the only other CBJ signed players to pick up points. In the 4-3 win, Dansk made 26 saves.

After Brandon Yip scored for the Admirals, Larkin scored his first goal since the 2012-13 season. Brad Winchester scored before Ryan Craig added to his great Falcons career with his 80th goal for the team. That puts him at fourth all time. Joseph Camarossa scored before Kerby Rychel notched his first pro goal on an empty netter with 29 seconds left. Scott Munroe made 18 saves in the win. Thomas Larkin’s three point night gave him a new career high in points in a season.

CBJ Prospects Review (10/7-10/19)

Posted by CBJProspects on October 20, 2014
Columbus Blue Jackets, Prospects / No Comments

Hello all! I’m trying to get back to our normal prospect updates on Mondays schedule, so as we do, let’s  start off in Springfield (or Syracuse as it was) as the Falcons first two games were on the road against the Crunch.

The Falcons had a light start to the season playing only one game then having to play a three-in-three the next week. Mike Hoeffel scored the first goal of the season when he potted the rebound of a Denny Urban point shot. Urban (who’s an ex-Ohio Junior Blue Jacket by the way) struck when he took a pass from Dana Tyrell and fired a shot from the dot making it 2-0. 1:29 later, ex-Jacket Michael Blunden made it 2-1. Ryan Craig closed out the scoring with an empty net goal to make it 3-1, Anton Forsberg made 21 saves in the win.

Quick Player Thoughts from Traverse City 2014

Posted by CBJProspects on September 17, 2014
Prospects / No Comments

After spending the past week or so in Traverse watching the Blue Jackets battle to win the championship, I wanted to take a few moments and offer my summary thoughts on each of the players. So here we go:

 

41 Alexander Wennberg 4GP 1-2-3 +4 2PIM
Despite battling a head cold, Alexander sill impressed despite not putting up big numbers. The smooth skating Swede played in all situations and was very impressive handling the puck. He was given a leadership role as an alternate captain throughout the tournament.

 

45 Lukas Sedlak 3GP 0-0-0 +1 2PIM 45
Lukas was the only Jacket draft pick to get scratched but was his usual strong two way presence when he did play. Lukas’ game is one of those when you don’t notice him its a good thing.

Later in the first, Dallas would score when Radek Faksa took a pass in the slot to tie it at 1.

Jackets earn perfect record at Traverse – set sights on Championship

Posted by CBJProspects on September 15, 2014
Prospects / No Comments

The Jackets team of prospects took on the St. Louis Blues prospects today in the their final game of the round robin tournament with their spot in the championship game Tuesday already clinched. The CBJ continued the trend of giving up an early goal when the Blues top line got on the board with Ty Rattie and Robby Fabbri working together down low and then finding Yannick Villeux in the slot to make it 1-0.

Six minutes later Oliver Bjorkstrand scored his second of the tournament when he picked up the rebound of an Austin Madaisky point shot on the power play. Two minutes later Jake Chelios scored on the power play to give the Blues their final lead of the game. Mike DiPaolo did what he does best – getting into a marathon (lasted at least a minute) of a bout with the Blues Justin Gutierrez. After that, for some reason, Mike left the game and was in street clothes. I didn’t notice until the second intermission and I don’t remember if I saw him play in the second period.

The Jackets took on the host Detroit Red Wings in front of a packed house last night and pulled out a 5-3 win. The game started out ugly with the Red Wings taking a 2-0 lead into the first intermission including the first goal 35 seconds into the game. The lone CBJ highlight came when tough guy Mike DiPaolo sent a Red Wing into the Jackets bench and then answered the call from Richard Nedomlel with Mike earning the decision.
