Prospect Weekly: Josh Dickinson, Sniper

Gone but not forgotten, it’s time to show Josh Dickinson some love.

Following his assignment to the Utah Grizzlies on October 8th, Dickinson has done nothing but put the puck in the back of the net. With back-to-back hat tricks on October 16th and 18th Dickinson earned ECHL player of the week honors.

Dickinson wasn’t finished after his big week as he put up two goals on October 25th including one on the rush seen below. He isn’t a high octane player but can use his shot to make a difference.

Although his goal streak came to an end Dickinson added an assist on October 26th to bring his total stat line to 11 points with nine goals in seven games, which leads the league for goals. The quality of competition in the ECHL is a fair question but Dickinson has shown an affinity for scoring goals in his history as he potted 15 in his freshman year at Clarkson in the NCAA.

Along with Travis Barron who in seven contests has scored 11 points including six goals in his own right, it begs the question of what more each could do to show they are ready for the next level. There is an obvious opportunity in the AHL with the Colorado Eagles as AJ Greer‘s suspension lasts until November 9th should the development staff choose to utilize it.

Oh and this happened the past week too. JC Beaudin played three games with the Ottawa Senators thus far in a 4th line center role, winning all eight of the face offs he’s taken. He is the only former Kelly Cup championship Colorado Eagles player to get any games in the NHL.
