Alexei Mikhnov makes a huge leap in the NHLE chart, so either he's been on fire for seven games, or there was a reporting error on his KHL stats when we last looked in at the prospect list. NHLE is NHL Equivalency, as developed by Gabriel Desjardins of the Behindthenet.ca and the his site: Behind The Net Hockey.
Eberle's domination of the WHL continues, and Linus Omark has been playing really well for the last few weeks, as reported by our own JohanBarrander.
|Player - League||DOB||Drafted||GP||G||A||P||NHL PPG||NHL82|
|Jordan Eberle - WHL||5/15/90||22||28||8
|Linus Omark - KHL||2/5/87
|Alexei Mikhnov - KHL||8/31/82||17
|Magnus-Pääjärvi Svensson - SEL||4/12/91||10||31||7||9||16||.503||41|
|Riley Nash - NCAA||5/9/89||21||11||1||4||5||.410||34|
|Philippe Cornet - QMJHL||3/28/90||133
|Chris Vande Velde - NCAA||3/15/87||97||17||2||4||6||.362||30|
|Alexander Bumagin - KHL||3/1/87||170||32||4||3||7||.311||26|
|Teemu Hartikainen - SM-Liiga||5/3/90||163

|Vyacheslav Trukhno - AHL||2/22/87||120||28||1||2||3||.110||9|
|Jeff Petry - NCAA||12/9/87||45
|Cody Wild - AHL||6/5/87||140||21
|Kyle Bigos - NCAA||5/12/89||99
|Theo Peckham - AHL||11/10/87||75
|Johan Motin - AHL||10/10/89||103
|Alexandre Plante - AHL||5/9/89||15
Alex Plante is struggling at the AHL level and these point levels include some power play time, which he's not making the most of. Cody Wild shows up here again and the mystery continues - the numbers have been solid to good and certainly in front of Taylor Chorney, yet he remains mired in the depth chart.
What can we say about Vyacheslav Trukhno at this point? It looks grim.
Remember, Gabe's methodology:
One way to evaluate the difficulty of one league relative to another is examine the relative performance of players who have played in both leagues. Players rarely play significant time in two leagues in the same year, but they often play in one league in one year and in another the next. As long as a player’s skill level is approximately constant over this two year period, the ratio of his performance in each league can be used to estimate the relative difficulty of the two leagues.
