Predators Prospect Report

Each week NashvillePredators.com will update the progress of the organization’s prospects. Fans can also follow the progress of the team’s AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals, by checking out the weekly Admirals Report on NashvillePredators.com and by checking out MilwaukeeAdmirals.com.

In Canadian Junior action, Nick Spaling had a huge week with three goals and five points in his last three games to move into 14th in the OHL in goals. Jonathon Blum continued his big season with three assists in three games played. Blum ranks in the top-10 across the entire CHL in both points and assists by a defenseman.

The NCAA conference playoffs are in full swing this weekend. Last weekend Mark Dekanich stopped 62-of-65 shots in Games 2 and 3 of Colgate's Best-of-3 first round series to allow the Raiders to overcome a one game deficit and advance in the ECAC Tournament.
