But Reid Boucher has it all to himself.
We discussed his chances of scoring 60-plus goals in a season last week, but 59 goals in 63 games is still something else.
Mr. Boucher's had a lot of press come his way, deservedly so, but to trump a record held by Steven Stamkos is no small feat. Plus, Sarnia still has five games left this year, so don't discount Boucher from at least three or four more goals.
Boucher's been getting a lot of press today, but today-- as a response to Martin Brodeur's balky back, and Johan Hedberg's inability to stop pucks-- we can visit New Jersey's young goaltending situation.
It's of paramount importance. As I said yesterday, Brodeur is done after next year, and Hedberg appears to be done now.
We've seen Keith Kinkaid, Jeff Frazee is up with the big club, and Scott Wedgewood-- who recently was promoted to Albany -- could be the next big thing. The Devils signed him from Plymouth of the OHL last year.
Still, Wedgewood has struggled this year. He was only 17-21-5 in the ECHL in Trenton, with an .895 save percentage and 3.24 goals-against average. He is just 20 years-old, but those numbers are alarming.
Frazee, on the other hand, has displayed confidence, and it feels like he's been in the system forever. He's only 25 years old, but it's getting late quickly for him. Plus, he's only played in 21 games in Albany, ceding much of the play to Kinkaid.
Kinkaid is 23 and has earned the lion's share of AHL play. Kinkaid's 17-11-5-2 in 45 decisions thus far in Albany.
I'd venture to guess Kinkaid is the heir to Brodeur's throne. But, based on the Hockey's Future boards, none of them are projected to be superstars.
