Prospect Weekend Watch

by Staff Writer / New York Rangers


What to watch for this weekend

Ryan Callahan and the Guelph Storm face off in two interesting matches this weekend. The first comes Friday night, when Sault Ste. Marie comes to town. Callahan has feasted on the Greyhounds this season, lighting them up for a hat-trick in his first game back from Rangers training camp. On Sunday, he squares off with fellow prospect Tom Pyatt and the Saginaw Spirit, hoping to avenge Guelph's 3-1 defeat on Oct. 30. Watch for Ryan to step it up when he faces off against his future Rangers teammate.

Marc-Andre Cliche, Jonathan Paiement and the Lewiston MAINEiacs will play P.E.I. on Friday night and play Rouyn- Noranda on Sunday. In two games against P.E.I., both victories, Cliche has three goals and three assists, while Paiement has an assist. Lewiston has yet to face Rouyn-Noranda this season. Cliche is currently second on the club in goals with 15, assists with 22, and points with 37. Paiement ranks second among the club's defensemen in goals with four, assist with 15, and points with 19.

Brandon Dubinsky, Michael Sauer and the Portland Winter Hawks will play at Kelowna on Friday night and at Vancouver on Saturday. The last time the team faced Kelowna, Dubinsky notched two goals and two assists and Sauer netted one goal. Watch for both to continue to contribute in scoring this weekend.

Tom Pyatt left Saginaw this week to participate in the final camp for the Team Canada Junior Team. Should he make it, he won't return until early January. While we wish him the best of luck, should he return to the Spirit this weekend, look for him to start a new scoring streak after his six game point scoring streak come to an end last Saturday in Barrie.

Dylan Reese and the Harvard Crimson will play at Dartmouth on Friday night. The last time the team faced the Big Green, Reese scored his only goal of the season in a 6-2 Harvard victory. In 12 games this season, he has tallied a goal and four assists for five points, along with 16 penalty minutes.
