November North American Prospects Update.

It was a rough month.

Alan Lyszczarczyk. Forward. Owen Sound Attack (OHL) 23 GP 6 Goals 7 Assists 13 Points.

Lyszczarczyk had a terrible November. He played 9 games in November and managed one goal. His points per game has dropped to .57, only slightly above his previous season and well below his rookie year. His shot total also suffered. In October he had 36 shots in 11 games, an average of 3.27 per game. In November, 11 shots only 1.38 per game. Lyszczarczyk will be with the Polish U20 team for most of December. For an analysis on what the future for Lyszczarczyk looks like, check out our last article.

Filip Starzynski. Forward. Northern Michigan (NCAA) 15 GP 1 Goal 1 Point.

Starzynski scored his first goal of the season. He continues to excel in the faceoff circle while playing solid defensive hockey. Again the lack of offense doesn’t project much for Starzynski’s future, but he could definitely find himself a role on team’s bottom six.

Tomasz Skokan. Defensemen. Kalkaska Rhinos (USPHL Premier) 17 GP 1 Goal 3 Assists 4 Points.

Skokan has had one assist since our last update. The production has not been there since Skokan moved up to the Premier League. He remains one of Poland’s best defensemen and should have no problem putting up points at the World Juniors. Hopefully, after a strong world juniors, Skokan will get back to scoring like he did in his previous seasons.

Mateusz Wawrzkiewicz. Forward. Tampa Bay Juniors (USPHL Elite) 15 GP 7 Goals 11 Assists 18 Points.

Time for some good news! Wawrzkiewicz has been on fire since our last update with 10 points in his last 5 games. He is 33rd in points per game, among players with at least 10 games. Among U17 skaters, Wawrzkiewicz is third in points and first in points per game(min 10 games). He has put himself on firmly on the radar for the u18s and I say let the hype train begin.

Oskar Rzekanowski. Forward. Bradford Rattlers (GMHL) 23 GP 9 Goals 16 Assists 25 Points

Rzekanowski’s great start has started to fizzle. In his last 7 games, he was held to five points. He sits 6th on the Rattlers in scoring and was left off Poland’s u20 entry list.

Michal Wojciechowski. Defensemen. River East Royal Knights (MMJHL) 22 GP 1 Assist 1 Point.

Wojciechowski plays on the worst team in the MMJHL. They sit dead last in the standings with 5 points in 23 games. Wojciechowski is one of the younger players in the leagues so his lack of the production isn’t surprising at all. He has also only taken 3 penalties. A lot of times, when players are overwhelmed their penalty total is very high, the fact his is so low is a good sign. Again though, there is no way to watch the MMJHL online and they don’t track many statistics so take this all with more than a grain of salt.
