Emilio Pettersen is representing Norway at the WJC Division 1A

https://www.hockey.no/nyheter/uttak-u20-vm/

If Norway can win that tournament, they can play in the big tournament with Canada/Russia/Sweden/Finland/etc next year.

A quiet weekend for the NCAA prospects this week. ASU and Denver both had the weekend off. MSU played two games but Mattson didn't dress for either one.


Denver returns to action next weekend with a visit to North Dakota, but Pettersen will presumably be gone to the Division I World Juniors, which starts next Sunday in Germany.

ASU makes another trip to the Ivy League next week, with a visit to Princeton. ASU is looking to return to their early-season winning ways after dropping 3 of their last 4 games. Princeton has lost 5 in a row.

MSU visits Wisconsin next week.


-----

In other news, Adam Fox had a three-point game on Friday, but was finally held pointless on Saturday. It was the first time since March 9 that he didn't get at least one point in a game. Overall, he had a 12 game point streak. He now has 20 points in 10 games and leads the NCAA in points per game.

The University of Denver confirms that Pettersen will be joining Team Norway for the Division I World Juniors -- but only after playing in this weekend's games for the Pioneers.

That likely means he'll miss Norway's opening game on Sunday and potentially their second game on Monday too. It looks like the D-I tournament doesn't have a playoff, just a straight round robin with the best team getting promoted.

NCAA weekend recap:


DENVER -- The Pioneers took a trip to North Dakota to take on the Fighting Hawks. They split the weekend series, losing 4-1 on Friday and winning 2-1 in OT on Saturday. Pettersen had an assist on the OT winner, so it's a good thing he didn't leave for Germany yet.

Pettersen leads the team with 10 assists and is tied for the team lead in points, with 15. 15 points in 14 games also keeps him above the 1.0 P/G mark. Pettersen is now headed across the Atlantic to join Team Norway in the IIHF U20 Division 1A tournament, which starts today in Germany. Norway's first game against Belarus starts today at noon Calgary time. I don't know if Pettersen would have been able to get from North Dakota to Germany in time for the game.


ARIZONA STATE -- The Sun Devils travelled to New Jersey to take on Princeton. They took both games against the Ivy Leaguers, shutting out the Tigers 4-0 on Friday and winning 3-2 in OT on Saturday. Koumontzis had assists on ASU's first two goals on Saturday. He now has 10 points in 18 games.

This weekend marked the halfway point of ASU's schedule, and the two wins moved them to a 12-6-0 record. This is already the best season in the history of the ASU hockey program. If they can keep playing this way, there's a very good chance they'll make the NCAA Tournament for the first time ever (they are currently 10th in the Pairwise ranking).


MICHIGAN STATE -- The Spartans travelled to Wisconsin to take on the Badgers. They dropped both games, losing 5-3 on Friday and 3-0 on Saturday. Mattson finally got back into the lineup on Saturday. He is still looking for his first college point (he has played in 6 of MSU's 16 games so far).



Things slow down now for the holiday season. Denver doesn't play again until after Christmas. MSU has an exhibition game next weekend against the US Under-18 team and then will be done until after Christmas. ASU has one more weekend series before their Christmas break, returning home to take on Colorado College (these will be their first home games in over a month).

Wes Gilbertson's latest piece on Pettersen

https://calgarysun.com/sports/hockey...-ncaa-freshman

Quote:
“Obviously, we’re always looking for talent, but it’s his competitiveness and just the way he’s driven,” Treliving said of Pettersen. “I mean, you talk to those DU coaches right now, he’s an 18-year-old kid who prepares like he’s 28. He’s very serious. Driven. And ultra, ultra competitive.

“For people in Calgary, everybody remembers Mony (Sean Monahan) as this really serious guy. This kid is the same way. It’s hockey 24/7, and just a really serious approach.”
Quote:
Pettersen remains a long-range prospect for the Flames — there are no sure-things in the sixth round of the NHL Draft — but Clark, admittedly a bit biased, figures this was a steal.

“The biggest thing missing from his game was man-strength,” Clark said of Pettersen, listed by the Pioneers at 5-foot-10 and 170 lb. “I really thought he was going to be drafted much, much higher. If you’d asked me two years ago, I’d say maybe third round. But as everyone else developed, he didn’t develop physically. He hadn’t yet.

“I did tell him, ‘When you get to Denver, their strength and conditioning coach — this guy’s name is Matt Shaw — is an elite strength and conditioning coach.’ I know NHL teams have been hounding him. And I said to Emilio, ‘When he gets his hands on you, it’s going to make a difference.’

“I think that’s what has happened, because I’ve seen clips of him playing at Denver and it’s like, ‘Oh my god.’ He has really done well, and I think it’s because of his strength. He still has to develop physically. He needs to keep going down that path and keep maturing. But things you can’t teach, that’s what he has. If you want to compare him to a Theo (Fleury) or to a Johnny Gaudreau or someone like that, I think it’s a pretty appropriate comparison, because he has the work ethic and has the drive, because he’s a little guy. He has to fight for everything that he wants.

“Probably the best part about Emilio is his love for the game,” Clark continued. “And as a scout, that sticks out like a sore thumb. That’s what you need to have. As these kids get older, some realize ‘Jeez, this is a lot of work’ and they come to the realization that, ‘Yeah, you know, I’m not sure if I want to do all this work.’ Emilio wants to do the work. He wants to pay the price. He’s special, that’s for sure.”

Updating the NCAA...

Mitchell Mattson (Michigan State) : The Spartans have played 22 games so far (7-12-3). Mattson has only seen action in 9 of them. He still has yet to score his first college point.


Demetrios Koumontzis (Arizona State) : The surprise team of the NCAA this season, the Sun Devils have a 16-9-1 record through 26 games. They could be the first independent team to qualify for the NCAA tournament since 1992. Last weekend, they swept their weekend series against Boston College. They didn't fare so well this weekend, dropping two on the road at Cornell. Next weekend will be another challenge for them as they visit Boston University.

Koumontzis had an assist on Saturday night, which was his first point in 8 games. He currently has 1G/10A through 26 games.


Emilio Pettersen (Denver University) : Denver has been on a tear recently, winning 7 straight games, pushing them to a 14-4-2 overall record.

Pettersen is quietly and consistently putting up points. He had 2 assists this weekend, staying at a point-per-game pace, with 5G/15A in 20 games. He's second in points on the team and has the most points among freshmen.

Pospisil with 3a 0 PIM in 3 games since returning from the WJC.

Friedman also mentioned on 960 that he talked to someone from another team annoyed that the Flames picked Pospisil because Pospisil was next on the other team's list.

In his midseason best NHL prospect rankings, Pronman ranks Emilio Pettersen #52 (the only Flames prospect to make the list). He has Adam Fox at #44.

From 167 to 52 is a nice jump. Could go higher up that ladder yet.

Pronman is high on a few Flames picks recently. Pettersen, Pospisil and Zavgorodniy have all risen substantially in his ranking.

The caveat to that is he had them ranked very low so their rise still puts them as middling to low-end prospects, but it's good to see growth from our late picks. I hope at least one of them turns into an NHL player.

I'm liking the cut of his jib. Looks like he could be a player.

It's been a while without any updates to the thread. Let's see how the Flames' prospects have been doing...


Mitchell Mattson (Michigan State) : The Spartans have an overall record of 10-15-5; a Conference record of 6-10-4; and are currently ranked 29th in the Pairwise rankings that determine the 16 teams who will play in the NCAA tournament. They have 4 games remaining in the regular season before the Big 10 tournament. They'll need to win the Big 10 in order to play in the national tournament.

Mattson has played in 14 of MSU's 30 games and has still yet to register his first college point.



Demetrios Koumontzis (Arizona State) : The Sun Devils currently have a 19-10-1 record and are 9th in the Pairwise rankings, which gives them a very good chance of making the NCAA tournament. They have 4 games remaining in the regular season, playing their final game on March 2. Because they aren't a part of any Conference, if they do make the NCAA tournament, they will go 4 weeks between games.

Koumontzis is having a respectable freshman season, with 14 points (2G/12A) in 30 games played. He is 2nd on the team for points by a freshman. He had 2 points (1G/1A) in his last game on February 2.



Emilio Pettersen (Denver University) : The Pioneers have a 15-6-4 overall record, with a 7-6-2 record in their Conference. They are currently 7th in the Pairwise. They still have 9 games remaining before the NCHC tournament (7 of which are against the bottom 3 teams in the NCHC).

Pettersen continues to have an excellent freshman season, although he has slightly fallen off his point-a-game pace. He currently has 22 points (6G/16A) in 25 games. He is second-overall on the team in points and leads the team in assists as well as freshman points and goals.



----------

Checking in on the Adam Fox signing watch...

Harvard currently has a 13-7-3 overall record, with a 9-5-2 record against the ECAC. They are currently 13th in the Pairwise, which would put them on the bubble for making the NCAA tournament. Depending on how things go, their season could end as early as March 9 or as late as April 13 (after the NHL regular season is over).

Fox has cooled off from his early-season pace, but he still leads the Crimson with 32 points (8G/24A) in 23 games. Last night, Harvard defeated BU in the Beanpot Tournament consolation game. Fox had one goal in the victory, which was his 100th NCAA point (20G/80A) in his 87th game.

While he's still having a strong season, he's probably not doing so well that he'll overcome the senior/forward bias in the Hobey Baker voting.
