The Flyers CHL Prospect Report (Mar. 16 – Mar. 30)

Welcome back to the Flyers CHL Prospect Report.

The waiting game continues as NHL clubs, team scouts, and fans continue to wait for more news regarding the possible return to play for the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).  Since the last edition of the Flyers CHL Prospect Report; Ontario’s Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism, and Culture Lisa MacLeod made an encouraging statement that she was “feeling great” about a possible return to play.  It was rumored that the return to play plan would include bubbles with the goal of completing a 20-24 game schedule evenly split between the months of April and May.  She did say that the return to play would need to be approved by local health authorities, and days later the rovince of Ontario announced $2.35 million in funding to assist the OHL in providing post-secondary scholarships to assist the league.  These are all encouraging signs, however as of writing this piece the OHL still has not made a definitive statement outlining a return to play this season.  That means that Flyers prospects Zayde Wisdom, Mason Millman, and Tyson Foerster will continue to be part of the AHL’s Lehigh Valley Phantom’s roster and would be returned to their OHL clubs if the junior season returns.

We will continue to follow this story and update you in this space if any more news and information regarding the status of the OHL is updated.

For now, there are lots of games and prospects to get up to date on in the WHL and the QMJHL.

Following the Regina Pats as their season got underway earlier this month has been a real treat as a fan of the game.  Not only am I watching Flyers prospect Roddy Ross get acclimated to a new team after spending the beginning of his WHL career with the Seattle Thunderbirds, but I get to watch budding superstar Connor Bedard begin his career.

For those who may not be familiar, let me fill you in on just how special Connor Bedard is.

Bedard is a 15-year old forward who was selected first overall in the 2020 WHL Bantam Draft.  He scored 43 goals and 41 assists for 84 points in only 36 games played at West Vancouver Academy Prep.  What makes him so interesting is that he is the first player ever to be granted ‘exceptional status’ by the WHL whose league rules mandate that players must be 16 years of age in order to be drafted.  This means that to qualify, a player has to be deemed as a player “whose ongoing development is more likely to be significantly enhanced by playing in the CHL” and who has qualities “not only on the ice, but as a person…deserving of the privilege of participating in the Canadian Hockey League” (www.chl.ca). 

The OHL has granted exceptional status to underage phenoms before including John Tavares, Aaron Ekblad, Connor McDavid, Sean Day, and current OHL player Shane Wright of the Kingston Frontenacs.  The QMJHL has only granted one player exceptional status to Joe Veleno who is a prospect currently in the Detroit Red Wings organization.  It goes without saying that players who are granted this status have lofty expectations and should be highly likely to be drafted high in the NHL Entry Draft in which they are eligible.

15-year old Connor Bedard has not disappointed.  He is currently leading the WHL in scoring with 8 goals and 11 assists for 19 points in only 10 games played.  He is currently scoring at a 1.90 pts/game pace which even exceeds Connor McDavid’s rookie year pace of 1.05 pts/game and even his 1.77 pts/game from his second season.  Obviously, it has only been 10 games in a shortened WHL season but the fact remains that Bedard is turning heads.  It will be really interesting to see how the young man’s rookie campaign ultimately plays out.

This edition covers the week that was in the CHL from Tuesday March 16th – Tuesday March 30th.

WHL (Western Hockey League)

Here are some highlights from McClennon’s First Star performance against the Regina Pats.  As an added bonus, you can also get a look at Roddy Ross in the Pats goal.  Footage is courtesy of the Winnipeg Ice and the WHL:

  • On Thursday (Mar. 25), the Winnipeg Ice were back in action taking on the Brandon Wheat Kings.  Despite opening the scoring, the Ice found themselves down 3-1 at the end of the opening period as the Wheat Kings scored 3 goals in 2:17 to take command of the game.  In the second period, Winnipeg cut the deficit to 3-2 with Peyton Krebs scoring his 4th of the season with Connor McClennon providing the screen in front.  The Ice struck early in the third period via Owen Pederson’s 4th of the year at 2:09, but Ridly Greig scored a shorthanded breakaway goal 2:02 later in what would be the game-winner as the Brandon Wheat Kings defeated the Winnipeg Ice by a score of 4-3.  McClennon finished the game with 0 points, a -1 rating, and 5 shots on goal.
  • Friday (Mar. 26) had the Winnipeg Ice back in action in the second half of a back to back as they took on the Swift Current Broncos.  Despite a 14-12 shots advantage, the Ice found themselves trailing 3-0 as the Broncos were very opportunistic in capitalizing on their opportunities.  Winnipeg got on the board in the second period, as Connor McClennon was credited with an assist on Peyton Krebs powerplay goal only 0:39 in to make it 3-1.  Swift Current got the goal back to make it 4-1, but the Ice would once again strike on the powerplay to make it a two-goal game through Jakin Smallwood’s 7th of the year.  The Broncos poured it on in the third period, scoring three unanswered goals to make an insurmountable 7-2 lead.  Conor Geekie scored his 3rd of the season to make the score a bit more respectable, but Winnipeg was handed a 7-4 loss at the hands of Swift Current.  McClennon finished the game with 1 assist, a -1 rating, and 1 shot on goal.  McClennon was also assessed a five-minute major for fighting Swift Current’s Devin Aubin at 16:57 of the second period.
  • On Sunday (Mar. 28), the Winnipeg Ice competed in their third game in four nights against the Moose Jaw Warriors.  Moose Jaw outshot the Ice 11-6 in the opening period, but it was Winniped that capitalized on its opportunities.  Jakin Smallwood opened the scoring with his 8th of the season on the powerplay at 10:10, and Peyton Krebs notched his 6th goal at even strength only 1:27 later.  Connor McClennon assisted on both goals with a secondary assist on the 1-0 goal and feeding the puck to Pederson from behind the net whose shot was redirected in by Krebs.  In the second and third periods, Winnipeg turned around the shot totals and outshot Moose Jaw 12-6 and 10-4 for the remainder of the game.  Moose Jaw did get a goal back midway through the third period, but Winnipeg got an insurance goal from Cole Muir and an empty-netter from Jackson Leppard to defeat Moose Jaw by a score of 4-1.  McClennon finished the game with 2 assists, a +1 rating, and 3 shots on goal.

2021   72304072001704.420.850
  • On Tuesday night (Mar. 16), Roddy Ross got the start in goal as the Regina Pats faced the Moose Jaw Warriors looking for his first win of the season.  Ross got some goal support as the Pats came out with three goals in the first half of the period to lead 3-0.  It must be said that the Pats also had a goal disallowed due to the puck being swatted out of mid-air with a high stick and hit a post.  Moose Jaw got a goal back with a shot from the point that Ross couldn’t pick up due to a screen in front to make it 3-1.  Regina would get that goal back though only 56 seconds later to head into the intermission with a 4-1 lead.  Moose Jaw cut the deficit with two goals in the second period, one on the powerplay (with Ross not anticipating the cross-ice pass fast enough) and a breakaway goal to make it a 4-3 game.  Moose Jaw tied the game in the third period as Ross stopped a high shot but was handcuffed and could not recover as the rebound was shoved into the net.  In overtime, Moose Jaw won the game as Daemon Hunt beat Ross cleanly after skating into the slot to give the Warriors a 5-4 win.  Ross remains winless on the season and he allowed 5 goals on 32 shots (27 saves).
  • The Regina Pats were back in action on St. Patrick’s Day (Mar. 17) as they took on the Swift Current Broncos.  Roddy Ross got the night off with Matthew Kieper getting the start in goal.  After finishing the first period with a 2-1 lead, Connor Bedard scored his 4th goal of the season on a breakaway for the game-winning goal as the Regina Pats won the game by a score of 3-2. 
  • Saturday (Mar. 20) had Roddy Ross get the start still looking for his first win of the season as the Regina Pats faced the Brandon Wheat Kings.  The Pats were outshot 12-5 in the opening period with Ross keeping Regina in the game with some nice solid saves including one on a Ridly Greig breakaway.  Brandon did open the scoring at 13:05 of the opening period as Lynden McCallum scored his 2nd goal of the season somehow squeezing a puck past Ross who was hugging the left post and could not make the stop.  After Brandon took a 2-0 lead, Connor Bedard picked off a Ridly Greig pass on the powerplay to break in shorthanded and scored his 5th goal of the season to make it a 2-1 game.  In the third period, the Pats would take the lead with a powerplay goal courtesy of Ryker Evans at the 6:58 mark to tie the game 2-2.  No goals were scored in the remainder of regulation as overtime would be needed to decide the winner of the game.  In overtime, Nolan Ritchie backhanded a shot above Ross’ glove on the short side to win the game for the Wheat Kings 3-2.  Ross played his best game of the season tonight but still remains winless after allowing 3 goals on 35 shots (32 saves).
  • On Tuesday (Mar. 23) the Regina Pats played the Winnipeg Ice with Roddy Ross getting the start in goal.  Winnipeg got things started by scoring the first goal with Ross screened and adding a second on the powerplay to take a 2-0 lead.  Regina would get a goal back before the end of the period with Carter Massier’s 1st of the season at the 15:00 mark to make it a 2-1 game.  In the second period, the Ice scored three goals in under four minutes with the third goal coming by way of the powerplay after Ross made the initial save and the puck bounced between his legs and past the goal line after losing sight of it.  Ross couldn’t get back on track after that and he was pulled at the end of the second period with the Pats trailing the Ice by a score of 5-1.  In the third period, Winnipeg continued to add to their lead with two more goals before the midway point of the period to lead 7-1.  Regina would grab back two goals of their own to make it a 7-3 game, but Winnipeg’s Connor McClennon scored at 15:24 to make the final score a resounding 8-3 victory for the Winnipeg Ice.  Ross continues to search for his first win of the season as he took the loss after being pulled after two periods and allowing 5 goals on 24 shots (19 saves).
  • Thursday (Mar. 25) had the Regina Pats facing the Prince Albert Raiders.  Roddy Ross had the night off completely as Matthew Kieper got the start in goal for Regina and rookie Spencer Welke served as his backup.  The Pats came to play in this one and played perhaps their best overall game of the season.  The Pats opened the scoring and led the game 1-0 after 20 minutes of play.  The Raiders tied the game at 6:49 of the second period, but the Pats scored 4 straight goals into the midpoint of the third period to lead 5-1.  Prince Albert scored twice in the third period to make things interesting, but Regina held on to win the game 5-3.  Connor Bedard added 2 assists to his point totals in the 2021 campaign.
  • On Friday (Mar. 26) the Regina Pats were back in action for their second game on back to back nights as they faced off against the Saskatoon Blades.  Roddy Ross was back on the bench in this one as rookie Spencer Welke got his first start of the season.  The Pats could not carry over any momentum from the previous night, as the Blades scored four goals in the opening period to lead 4-1.  Connor Bedard scored his 6th goal of the season to put the Pats on the board.  In the second period, the Pats scored twice to cut the lead to 4-3, but Saskatoon ended up scoring once in the second and twice in the third to lead Saskatoon to a lopsided 7-3 win over Regina.  Welke was in goal for all 7 goals against and played the entire game for Regina.
  • Monday (Mar. 29) saw the Regina Pats play the Swift Current Broncos with Roddy Ross getting the star in goal still seeking his first win of the season.  The Pats started quick getting on the board only 1:00 into the game.  The Broncos responded as Ross could not be blamed for a tipped in goal to tie the game 1-1, but the Pats did score twice more in the period to take a 3-1 lead into the intermission.  Ross made a few timely stops in the period to keep the momentum from swinging to Swift Current including a nice blocker save after the tying goal.  In the second period, Mathew Ward of the Broncos was allowed to skate out front uncontested from behind the net and backhanded his 1st goal of the season top shelf to make it a 3-2 game.  But the Pats responded with two goals to make it 5-3 before both teams alternated goals for the remainder of the period to make the score 7-4 in favor of Regina.  Ross made a goal line save as he took away a sure goal by getting the puck caught in his equipment to maintain the Pats lead.  Regina would add two goals in the third period to end up winning this game 9-4.  Ross won his first game of the season and allowed 4 goals on 29 shots (25 saves).
  • On Tuesday (Mar. 30) the Regina Pats were back in action against the Moose Jaw Warriors.  Roddy Ross got his second consecutive start on back-to-back nights, looking to build some momentum after earning his first win of the season the previous evening.  The opening period was a goaltenders duel between Ross and Moose Jaw’s Brett Mirwald as they both stopped a combined 27 shots between them to go into the intermission 0-0.  The Pats did ring one off the goalpost and the Warriors whiffed on a tap-in; but overall both goaltenders were excellent in the opening frame.  Connor Bedard opened the scoring with a breakaway goal at 10:29 of the second period to give Regina a 1-0 lead, and Ross continued to track the puck well and square himself to opposing shooters.  In period three, Moose Jaw finally got on the board through Brayden Yager’s 3rd of the season at the 1:59 mark with a quick wrist shot from the slot that beat Ross up high on the blocker side.  Moose Jaw took the 2-1 lead at 11:32 at Eric Alarle’s 7th goal who was all alone in front with no defensemen in sight to backhand it home.  1:02 later, the Pats tied the game 2-2 through Carter Massier’s 4th of the season and would end up forcing overtime.  In overtime, the Pats would get the winning goal late at 4:33 through Layton Feist and the Regina Pats defeated the Moose Jaw Warriors by a score of 3-2.  Ross won his second straight game and allowed 2 goals on 30 shots (28 saves).  Ross was also named the game’s Third Star.

QMJHL (Quebec Major Junior Hockey League)

Egor Serdyuk #18 (RW) – Victoriaville Tigres (QMJHL)

SEASONGPGAPTS+/-SPIM
20212481018+44816
  • On Friday night (Mar. 19) the Victoriaville Tigres hosted the Shawinigan Cataractes.  The opening period was dominated by the Cataractes who scored all three goals and dominated the shots on goal tally 11-2.  Shawinigan scored their third goal of the period on the powerplay as Egor Serdyuk was served a two-minute minor for interference.  With a 3-0 lead in the second period, Shawinigan added to their lead as Victoriaville’s forwards were caught on a bad change due to a defensive giveaway with Egor Serdyuk coming back into the defensive zone as the puck was already in the Tigres goal.  Shawinigan added two more goals to make it six unanswered goals to lead 6-0.  Victoriaville got one back at the end of the period though Mikhail Abramov’s 8th of the season.  The Tigres would score twice in the final period, but the game had already been decided as Victoriaville lost the game by a score of 6-3.  Egor Serdyuk finished the game with no points, a -2 rating, 1 shot on goal, and 4 PIMs.  He was also assessed a high-sticking penalty at 7:40 of the third period.      
  • The Victoriaville Tigres were in action again on Saturday night (Mar. 20) as they hosted the Rimouski Oceanic.  Both sides scored twice in the opening period in alternating fashion.  Victoriaville scored first as Egor Serdyuk passed the puck into the slot, was fired wide, and the shooter backhanded the puck back into the slot where Shawn Element scored his 15th goal.  After Rimouski tied it, Serdyuk again notched a secondary assist on an impressive end to end effort by Nicolas Daigle who fed Conor Frenette for his 7th goal.  With the game tied 2-2 in the second period, Shawn Element scored his second goal of the game at 17:30.  That was all the scoring the Tigres would get though, as the third period saw Rimouski score two goals in 1:14 and add an empty netter to defeat Victoriaville by a score of 5-3.  Egor Serdyuk finished the game with 2 assists, a +1 rating, and 2 shots on goal.
  • Tuesday (Mar. 23) had the Victoriaville Tigres back in action as they faced the Rimouski Oceanic once again.  While the score was not flattering in this game, the final shots on goal tally were incredibly misleading as they projected a close game between the two sides with Victoriaville outshooting Rimouski 24-23.  Special teams played a huge role in the 9-1 Victoriaville victory, as the Tigres were a perfect four for four with the man advantage while the Oceanic could not capitalize at all on three powerplay opportunities.  After Victoriaville scored six unanswered goals, Rimouski scored their lone marker at 12:33 of the third period to break the shutout.  Egor Serdyuk was quiet in this game; scoring no points, no shots on goal, and a +1 rating. 
  • In the second game of a back to back on Wednesday (Mar. 24), Victoriaville were the visitors as they took on the Shawinigan Cataractes.  Although Shawinigan outshot Victoriaville 13-6 in the opening frame, it was the Tigres that opened the scoring courtesy of Nicolas Daigle’s 9th goal of the season.  The shot discrepancy continued in period two with the Cataractes outshooting the Tigres 12-5.  Both teams scored with Shawn Element notching his 17th for Victoriaville and Mavrik Bourque scoring his 16th of the season.  The third period was just about equal from a shots perspective, but the Tigres pulled away by scoring four in the final period.  At the 4:00 mark, Conor Frenette scored his 10th to make it a 3-1 game.  On the powerplay, Egor Serdyuk took a pass in stride while entering the offensive zone, worked his way around a defender, and slid the puck into the goal for his 7th goal of the campaign.  With the score 5-2, the Cataracted pulled their goalie for an extra attacker.  After Tigres goalie Nikolas Hurtubise made a save, the puck was cleared down the ice and missed the empty net.  Serdyuk made a real heads up play and motored down the ice to negate the icing and tucked the puck into the net for his 8th goal and secured a 6-2 victory for Victoriaville.  For the game, Serdyuk finished with 2 goals, a +2 rating, and 2 shots on goal.  He also received a 2 minute minor for cross-checking at 14:45 of the third period.          

Elliot Desnoyers #91 (C) – Halifax Mooseheads (QMJHL)

202134202343+911420
  • Saturday (Mar. 20) saw the Halifax Mooseheads host the Cape Breton Eagles.  Cape Breton dominated the shots in the opening period 17-8, but it was the Mooseheads who got on the board first with 2021 NHL Draft prospect Zachary L’Heureux scoring his 13th goal of the season after taking advantage of a goaltender puck-handling miscue.  Cape Breton would tie the game by taking advantage of Halifax not effectively clearing the zone at 10:20 to tie the game 1-1.  The Eagles would end up taking a 2-1 advantage into the dressing room after one period of play.  In the second period, Halifax would tie the game with Zack Jones’ 5th of the season to make it 2-2.  The Mooseheads would take the lead 3-2, as Elliot Desnoyers won a faceoff in the neutral zone and made himself available to take a pass in the slot and scoring his 17th goal of the season on a wrist shot.  With that goal, Desnoyers extended his consecutive points streak to six games.  Not to be outdone, Cape Breton would equalize in the final minute of the period to make it 3-3.  In the third, both teams would notch a goal each including L’Heureux’s second goal of the game with only 12.8 seconds left to end regulation in a 4-4 tie.  In overtime, Dawson Stairs scored his second goal of the game to give the Eagles a 5-4 overtime victory over the Mooseheads.  Desnoyers finished the game with 1 goal, a +1 rating, and 2 shots on goal.
  • Wednesday night (Mar. 24) saw the Halifax Mooseheads take on the Cape Breton Eagles for the second of three consecutive games.  The Mooseheads opened the scoring only 2:57 in with James Swan scoring his 10th off some scrambling defensive and goaltending by the Eagles.  Halifax would extend their lead to 2-0 even though they were outshot 11-8 with Landon Miron’s 9th goal.  In the second period, Senna Peeters scored his 6th goal of the season to make it a 3-0 lead at 9:26, but Cape Breton would finally get on the board to make it a 3-1 game.  Halifax would score the only goal of the final frame courtesy of Jordan Dumais’ 8th of the year to secure a 4-1 win for the Halifax Mooseheads.  Elliot Desnoyers had a quiet game with 0 points, an even rating, and no shots on goal.  He also struggled mightily in the faceoff circle only winning 5 of 23 faceoffs.  His six game consecutive points streak came to an end.
  • On Thursday night (Mar. 25) the Halifax Mooseheads took on the Cape Breton Eagles for third time this week.  Halifax got on the board with the only goal of the first period through Landon Miron’s 10th of the season off a bad defensive givaway.  In the second period, Cape Breton tied the game at 1-1 but Elliot Desnoyers scored his 18th goal of the season off a wrist shot from the slot to make it a 2-1 game.  In the second period, Desnoyers would make it 3-1 by skating around the zone and making his way into the slot once again to beat the goaltender with a wrister.   In the third period, Desnoyers would complete the hat-trick as H’Heureux tipped a puck ahead for Desnoyers to make a forehand to backhand move on a breakaway for his 20th goal of the season.  The Mooseheads would add two more goals later in the frame to make the final score 6-1 in favor of Halifax.  Elliot Desnoyers was awarded the First Star of the game honors with 3 goals, a +4 rating, and 7 shots on goal.

Here is footage from the game as Elliot Desnoyers scored a natural hat-trick and was awarded the First Star of the game.  Footage is courtesy of the Halifax Mooseheads and the QMJHL: 

  • Saturday (Mar. 27) saw the Halifax Mooseheads back in action as they faced the Charlottetown Islanders.  The first period saw both teams get on the board; Charlottetown struck first at 14:23 but the Mooseheads equalized with Jordan Dumais’ 9th of the season to make it a 1-1 game.  In the second period, The Islanders took the lead as Thomas Casey scored his 27th goal of the season with the Mooseheads shorthanded.  Robert Orr tied the game 2-2 for Halifax at 16:55 of the third period to end regulation time.  In overtime, Charlottetown scored the winner at 4:47 of overtime through Noah Laaouan to hand the Mooseheads a 3-2 loss.  Elliot Desnoyers finished the game with 0 points, a -1 rating, and 1 shot on goal.
