The minor leaguers, junior players and college men are working their way up and down the organizational depth charts and this week a few good men spiked in a good way. The best among them? Laurent Brossoit. At the world juniors, Darnell Nurse and William Lagesson are impressing on the big stage, and Anton Slepyshev is doing good things for Ufa at the Spengler Cup. It’s been a good week for the men bubbling under.
