Huge game tonight between SJS/ANA.

Anaheim has quite a solid lineup in place - goaltending and depth is weak but they have some of the big guns with some notable rookies to watch; like Zellweger, Gaucher, Max Jones, Silfverberg, Shatty, Comtois, etc.

But for Teal there are some key names to be watching; as their best player is Ferraro. Bonino Vlasic (🤡) Kunin Lindblom are all joining them, with Reimer providing a stable net. The real excitement starts off with the offence and defence rookies fighting for AHL/ NHL jobs.

Gushchin Gregor and Robins lead the lineup for me. Gregor is playing with Bonino and Kunin, Robins and Gushchin on the other hand will be looked at for some key offence. Both vying to flex infront management as the last roster cut saw Cardwell, Coe, Wiesblatt amongst others sent to the AHL. By no means will Gushchin or Robins see an AHL assignment as a loss. But both these kids have real TOP6 potential. Robins was arguably the best skater in the rookie tournament behind SJS goaltending led by Beaupit (him Gaudreau and Mann with Makiniemi are going to be really interesting to follow).

Meanwhile, Merkley and Cicek are both fighting for NHL
jobs. They’ve had some strong competition as Matt Benning and Simek were each standouts the other night against LA. Nutivaara looks like he could also provide a third string obstacle for the rookie defenders.

My keys to the game tonight are going to have eyes on the Anaheim net (Stolarz/ Eriksson Ek), Robins, Gushchin, and Merkley. Some pretty evenly matched up skaters but SJS has to see offence from more than Kunin/ Lindblom (who may be a scratch due to injury precautions).</div></div>

Gregor scores basically instantly followed by a sweet Robins pass for a insanely quick 2-0 lead.

Big statement for the team to start. Huge for Gregor, Robins, Reedy.

Edit:

And Gushchin buries a Reedy rebound.

Not saying I called it but… the kids are hungry.
