In the System is your weekly Blue Jackets prospect report. We look at who's scoring, who's not, and who's stopping pucks.
This week, Emil Bemstrom had himself a grand old time, including a three-assist game earlier this morning. Elsewhere, Dmitri Voronkov, Kirill Marchenko, Mikael Pyythiä and others found the scoresheet.
Let's take a look at what the last week held.
Bemstrom is tearing it up across the pond in Liiga. He's got eight goals and 17 points in 15 games. The Blue Jackets will need him to step up this year with the news of Gustav Nyquist's shoulder surgery.
NHL teams have begun to recall the players they've loaned from Europe, so Bemstrom may not have too much longer in Finland. Isac Lundeström (ANA) and Jesper Boqvist (NJD) were recalled from Timrå (Sweden) on Friday morning.
The Blue Jackets' fourth round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft, Pyythiä continues to impress (albeit at the U20 level) with TPS. He notched an assist this week to raise his tally to 19 points in 16 games.
Apart from Bemstrom's excellent week, it was mostly a quiet one. Below, you'll find an up-to-date chart of all Blue Jackets prospects that are currently playing.
