By Brian Weidler, "Game Time" Prospect Department


The Blues' prospects all around the world made our job a little rough this week.

Prospects at every level -- minor pro, Europe, junior and college -- turned in standout performances this week, making it hard to select just five.

Two prospects in particular continued their torrid paces this week, making a strong claim to permanent placement in this feature. Center Jori Lehtera currently sits in second place in the KHL scoring parade with a 7-9-16 scoring line in 13 games, just one point behind Amur's Jakub Petruzalek (13 GP, 6-11-17), and 2010 first-round pick Vladimir Tarasenko is in fourth place with an 8-7-15 scoring line in 13 games. Tarasenko's eight goals also lead the KHL in goal scoring.
