Scoring Og Assist Fra Thoresen

So says this headline.

And the young Norwegian has made the team. Lowetide has his take on the move. After An impressive beginning to camp Thoresen proved he belonged Thursday night when he picked up a goal and an assist, all the while playing big ES minutes against the likes of Iginla and Tanguay.

With Schremp heading down to learn that part of the game not involving the power play, Kyle Brodziak MIA (is he hurt? sick? holding out? anyone?), Mikhnov hurt and likely not a bad candidate for a little minor league seasoning himself there remain three spots and five candidates.

I think its safe to say Winchester and Peterson hold down the two extra spots at this point but that could change. I think though that these two aren't going to the minors for any reason while the remaining three candidates need to play regularly at this point in their development.

So, Jonas Almtorp, Marc Andre Pouliot and Jean Francois Jacques - good luck tonight.

All three (and Winchester and Peterson for that matter) are in the lineup against the Flames..
