Prospect Impressions: Dramatic goals from NHL youngsters, Strome carves up Niagara,

SHL goalie 's lighter-side

Throughout the NHL, young players are making a major impact for their franchises as

teams are relying upon youth to lead their teams into the playoffs. In this week 's

Prospect Impressions, Rickard Rakell, Joel Armia, and Robby Fabbri are featured

with highlight-reel goals. Nashville Predators forward Craig Smith has his shot

blocked and you won 't believe who did it. Plenty more highlights including a fun

look at Dan Girardi 's pirate impression, and one SHL goalie who likes to have some

fun post-game.

Would you be surprised to know that Rickard Rakell currently sits fourth in team-

scoring for the Anaheim Ducks? Ahead of a number of powerhouse veterans, Rakell has

quietly elevated his game, something the Ducks desperately needed to turn their

season around after an abysmal start. You could consider Rakell as somewhat of a

saving grace for the team, as his ability to play up-and-down the lineup has been a

critical element to the Ducks recent eight game win streak. With the game on the

line against the Edmonton Oilers, Rakell danced through the defense and

dramatically notched his 16th goal and fifth game-winner of the year.
