Prospect Weekly: Foudy’s fantastic start in the AHL

It took a couple games but Jean-Luc Foudy broke through for his first pair of professional points in a 3-1 win for the Colorado Eagles. These were not cheap assists either as Foudy used his speed, vision and soft hands to set up each of these plays which helped make a difference in the game. Foudy then followed that performance up with two assists the next game as well on a couple tremendous passes. As an 18-year old orphaned from the OHL Foudy is making the most of his opportunity and showing what happens when you give young talent a chance to hold a major role in the AHL.

The hope is someday there won’t be a need for highlights from the ECHL but that is not today’s reality. Nick Henry and Ty Lewis were sent to the Utah Grizzlies over the previous weekend for inexplicable reasons where they each proceeded to score five points in two games culminating with this hat trick from Henry. They were called up right after that game but didn’t immediately suit up for the Eagles, though eventually did over the weekend.

Justin Barron made the most of Halifax’s last game for a month when he tied the game in an eventual 3-2 win. He is looking more composed in all three zones and uses his physicality along with big shot to make an impact.

And one player just exiting a pause is Alex Beaucage finally back in action and scored his first goal with Victoriaville in a 8-1 defeat of his old team. Nice to see the shot is alive and well!

Boston College only had one game over the weekend as the NCAA season is winding down ahead of this month’s conference tournaments. Alex Newhook continued his point-per-game pace with a nifty assist off of a turnover on their opening goal in an eventual overtime loss.
