We at CBCSports.ca will be keeping an eye on the next generation of NHL stars on Canada's seven clubs, whether they're working on the "farm" in the AHL or honing their game overseas, waiting for the end of the lockout.

The last time we checked in with Sven Baertschi, he was making an immediate impact for the the Flames' farm club, posting three goals and six points in but four games.

The Swiss sensation has continued his torrid pace, averaging over a point a game for his club, picking up four goals and eight assists in 11 games so far in the season.

The good news doesn't end there for the Flames as they await the end of the NHL lockout, since Baertschi isn't their only only young gun on the Heat.

Roman Horak has an incredible 10 goals and one assist in as many games as Baertschi, giving Flames fans much to look forward to once the labour mess is resolved.
