Young forwards across the organization continue to post point-per-game performances as a trio of prospects led their teams across three different levels. 

Take a look at some of the top performers from the past two weeks of action: 

1. Andrei Altybarmakian

The 22-year-old forward led the Rockford IceHogs during their best stretch of the season to date, scoring two goals and adding an assist in a pair of wins over the Iowa Wild on March 6 and 7. 

In the first of a two-game set, Alybarmakian picked up an assist on the IceHogs' opening goal in a 3-2 win over the Wild. The very next night, the forward scored his second of the season in the opening frame to give Rockford a 1-0 lead and then netted the overtime winner 1:17 into the extra period to clinch the first win streak of the season for the AHL side. 

All told in four games over the last two weeks, Altybarmakian scored two goals and two assists. 

2. Lukas Reichel

Chicago's first-round selection last October continues to impress in the German top flight, adding a goal and four assists in four games over the last two weeks, bringing his current point streak to six games and season total to 21 points (7G, 14A). 

The forward posted an assist in three straight games to start the stretch -- a 5-1 win over Bremerhaven on March 4, a 5-2 win over Iserlohn on March 7 and a 6-3 win over Kolner on March 10. Reichel then scored a goal and an assist in an 8-1 thumping of Dusseldorf on March 13. 

Eisbaren Berlin has won four straight contests to push their season record to 16-4-4, leading the North Division and second in the league. 

3. Landon Slaggert

Slaggert pushed his point streak to seven games with three more appearances on the scoresheet in Notre Dame's last three outings. 

He scored the opening goal in a 5-2 win over Penn State on March 5 and added an assist on the seventh and final tally in a 7-1 win over the Nittany Lions a night later.

In the opening game of the Big Ten tournament over the weekend, No. 4 seed Notre Dame met Penn State for a third straight game, where the No. 5 seed Nittany Lions exacted revenge with a 6-3 victory. Slaggert assisted on the game's opening goal on the power play just 2:10 into the game. 

The rookies season line stands at 22 points (8G, 14A) in 25 games as the Fighting Irish now wait to see if they will earn a big into the NCAA tournament with a 14-13-2 record overall.
