Welcome to the Thursday ramblings. This week I am going to go over some AHL bright spots that are known and some that are not. If these players are available in your keeper leagues (and can be stashed) do it.

 

Also here is my #GoodTweet of the week (p.s. if you get the reference you will win a high five gif personalized by me)

I just want to add, I give great fantasy hockey advice so tweet me your questions. How do I give great advice, well I have never missed playoffs in any H2H league since I started playing and have won at least one of the four to nine pools I have been in, or am in, since 2010.

 

 

AHL bright spots

 

Lucas Elvenes (VGK)

Currently leading the AHL in scoring with 11 points in seven games the young Swede is really taking the AHL, and keeper GMs, by storm. He never quite put up amazing numbers in the SHL but was always a solid point producer, just not one that scored a ton of goals every season. As of now though he appears to be a lot better than other fifth round selections. If he keeps this up, he will be in the NHL within two years.

 

Morgan Geekie (CAR)

Geekie is developing quite nicely in his second AHL season for the Charlotte Checkers. In six games Geekie has eight points, registering points in all but the game against Utica who is dominating the AHL to the tune of being undefeated, along with the Toronto Marlies. He really has carried over his play since the Calder Cup championship run. A call up in the future this season, and a full time role in the NHL look eventually likely for the scoring centre, but he will likely need to move over to the wing.

 

Igor Shesterkin (NYR)

Shesterkin is showing he does not need to be in the AHL at all. He is of course splitting starts with Adam Huska, a
