Let's take a dive into this week's update of our Next Wave report, presented by Kaiser Permanente:

On the Farm

The San Jose Barracuda have made some waves over the last couple weeks, with Max Letunov and Ivan Chekhovich being named our most recent Prospects of the Week. Joachim Blichfeld, who led the team in points prior to his recall on Apr. 23, added his 12th goal of the season on Apr. 21 against San Diego, which was tied for sixth in the league at the time. Scott Reedy has four points in 10 games (three goals, one assist) so far in his professional career and scored his first AHL goal on Apr. 11 at Ontario. Alex True has recorded at least a point in five of his last seven games (two goals, four assists) and ranks second on the team in points.

Wizard of Ozzy

Currently, up to 24 points on the season, Ozzy Wiesblatt is crushing it in the assist department as of late. Starting on Apr. 3 with his second three-assist game of the season, Wiesblatt has collected at least one assist in nine of his last 10 games (one goal, 12 assists), recording a five-game assist streak (Apr. 3-11) and is currently on a four-game streak (Apr. 15-22).

Danil Deal

Danil Guschin registered his third hat trick of the season on Apr. 23, scoring his fifth goal over his previous four games, which include three multi-point contests (five goals, two assists). He eclipsed the 30-goal mark for the first time in his USHL career and ranks second in the league in goals this season. His 64 points are good for fifth and he is tied for first among skaters with seven game-winning goals.
