Bolts in the Pipeline: Prospects recap for Jan 2-8

As the World Juniors wrapped up, we headed to the trade deadlines.

The World Juniors are now over, and sadly for the Bolts kids who filled the team, Canada lost to the United States 5-4 in a shootout. As soon as that final goal was scored, the wheeling and dealing started happening.

Chris Paquette went from Niagara to Peterborough, Anthony Cirelli went from Oshawa to Erie, and Mitchell Stephens went from Saginaw to London. These moves mean we should see more Bolts prospects longer into the OHL post season.

Playing wise, a bunch of them still sat out, with the World Juniors attendees not playing, aside from Cirelli, who had a good-bye game with the Generals on Sunday.

Brett Howden of Moose Jaw had the best week on the ice, putting up nine points in four games.

In next weeks recap, everyone starts on their new teams. Two more months until the playoffs start. And as always, check out the BoltProspect website for daily prospect news.
