One of the stories of this prospect season we've been underreporting has been the play of overage prospect Sascha Goc in the German DEL. Bolt Prospects had all but written off Goc after an injury plagued season last year with Adler Mannheim and sliding offensive numbers since his days as an Albany River Rat in the Devils organization. This year, the former Mannheim captain is starting fresh with the Hannover Scorpions and showing dramatic improvement. Goc has 14 goals and 26 points through 45 games this season to go with 154 penalty minutes. Goc will be given a prime showcase at the upcoming Olympics, and with both Cory Sarich and Pavel Kubina needing contract decisions this summer, its not impossible for Goc to play his way into consideration by the organization once again.
