Behold, the Future: Jets Prospects Update, Nov. 4th

As promised a couple of weeks ago, I want to make a habit of looking at our prospects down at the farm every other Friday or so.  Since the inaugural "Behold, the Future" (called at the time the much-less-catchy "Hi Prospects, Whaaaat's Happening?"), the St. John's IceCaps have held strong atop the Atlantic Division, with a 6-2-3 record (at the previous posting, they had been 3-1 through their first four games).  Our ECHL affiliate, the Colorado Eagles (who admittedly don't have a lot of our signed prospects), are having a so-so season so far, going 4-3 through 7 games.  Let's have a look at those young 'uns.

Observations: A big slowdown from Carl Klingberg, who had scored 6 goals in the first 6 games, but hey, he's young, it happens.  Good to see a guy like Spencer Machacek picking up the pace; he could make for a nifty 4th or 3rd liner someday.  Zach Redmond is looking good defensively, and it's possible we see him before Paul Postma or Arturs Kulda.  On the downside, Patrice Cormier and Jason Gregoire do not appear to be NHL-ready right now, and my hunch is that Cormier never will be.  One last positive?  With Peter Mannino moving up to the NHL, promising young keeper Edward Pasquale has gotten a couple of starts, and played well.  He really deserves a spot on the AHL roster, as the David Aebischer Show needs to get the hook.

Jason Kasdorf 19 USHL 5 211 103 88 15 0.854 4.26 1 3 1 0

Observations: Mark Scheifele down in the OHL is a man possessed.  Truth be told, the Barrie Colts in general are going nuts offensively, but Scheifele adds a little more fuel to the fire.  Adam Lowry and Austen Brassard are also doing well, and apparently Lowry returned to the WHL with a major chip on his shoulder.  Nothing else really jumps out at me here, which isn't a good sign, though I'll be interested to see what Akim Aliu can do given some playing time.  Jason Kasdorf looks like a wreck on a bad Des Moines team, and unfortunately for him, he can't afford to struggle at the USHL level.
