Several other prospects have been returned to their Junior teams. There is a new agreement in place that if the lockout should end, the Junior league players can return to the NHL training camps for an evaluation. Boone Jenner and Ryan Murray have gone back to their Junior teams Based on their age, they either must play NHL hockey of play in Juniors.
Three players currently assigned to Springfield but could return to their Junior teams based on their performance at the Springfield training camp. These players are: Dalton Smith, Michael Chaput and Austin Madaisky.
The other prospects are pretty much going back to their previous areas. The big exception to this is Goalie Oscar Dansk. He is leaving Sweden and will be playing for the the Erie Otters. He is expected to return to Sweden for the World Juniors, but having him playing in North America and seeing North American hockey will be exciting. Hopefully he will take to it like an Otter to water [there's a joke there folks]. Honestly the Otters were terrible last year. It may be he gets a lot of shots on goal to hone his skills.
Note:Gianluca Curcuruto was traded from the not so good Soo Greyhounds to the Plymouth Whalers who are usually a good team. This should help is development.
