Blues Prospects Trending Up, Apr. 29, 2012

Trending Up header

By Brian Weidler, "Game Time" Prospect Department


THE SKINNY:

Each of the major junior league championship series will feature at least one Blues' prospect... and a rookie pro is skating for Alaska in the ECHL Western Conference final series as well.

Portland of the Western League (Ty Rattie), Niagara of the Ontario League (Brock Beukeboom), and Saint John of the QMJHL (Stephen Macaulay and Ryan Tesink) will all compete for their league championships in the days ahead, while three other Blues' prospects (Cody Beach and Joel Edmundson of Moose Jaw/WHL, and Max Gardiner of Dubuque/USHL) saw their playoff dreams evaporate for the 2011-12 season in the last week.

Also, following Peoria's disappointing elimination from AHL playoff contention, rookie defenseman David Shields has been assigned to Alaska to help the Aces in their pursuit of yet another Kelly Cup championship.
