Blues Prospects "Trending Up" for the week ending Mar. 07, 2010

Compiled by Brian Weidler, "Game Time" Prospect Department

With a 2-0-0 record, a 1.50 GAA, and a 95.6% save percentage in the last week, Jake Allen would normally be right at the top of the "Fab Five" list... but Allen has been so good, and so dominant, over the last month or so, that we at the Game Time Prospect Department have opted to forego his now-customary weekly selection to this feature, and give Jake The Snake his own spotlight. Look for that feature later today.

Don't worry, there are still five worthy candidates for selection to the list of prospects "Trending Up" this week, and one honorable mention as well. Tyson Strachan, despite being a few months beyond the "prospect age" cutoff of 25 years, is still a prospect in this organization, and he had a solid week with three assists and four PM in three games. Strachan has seen NHL time with the Blues this year, and should be right in the mix to win a full-time NHL job in next fall's training camp.
