Each Monday, NHL.com will take a look back at the weekend that was in the American Hockey League with an emphasis on the young stars and top prospects that are continuing their development. Here are some of the highlights from the past few days in the AHL:
Michael Sgarbossa, Lake Erie
Sgarbossa scored twice and again in the shootout to help the Monsters defeat Houston. Originally signed as an undrafted free agent by San Jose, Sgarbossa was acquired by Colorado last season in the Jamie McGinn trade. He won the scoring title in the Ontario Hockey League with 102 points for Sudbury, and now has 13 points in 13 games for Lake Erie. Sgarbossa also had a goal and an assist Saturday in a win at Texas.
