Observations

February 2019 – In his first year out of college, the undrafted centre has exploded onto the AHL scene. Boasting 41 points in 48 games and a trip to the AHL all-star game in his rookie season, L’Esperance also currently leads the league in goals with 26. Joel now looks to be a top candidate to earn a call-up to the big team after being a long-shot at the beginning of the season. Nate Duffett
