One of the most intriguing questions surrounding the Anaheim Ducks would-be 2012-13 season was what kind of a role and what kind of success their offensive farm system players would have.
The ultimate answer to that question has been put on hold thanks to a lockout that is now threatening to cancel the remainder of what would already be a significantly shortened NHL season.
However, these prospects are getting plenty of ice time with the Ducks AHL affiliate Norfolk Admirals, and while you can't draw solid conclusions from how a player fares in the AHL, the stat sheet itself does offer us a chance at some interesting speculation.
Anaheim is counting on some strong development from these players and banking on their contribution in the near future. Using only the stat sheet, we'll take a look at how some of them are doing and see what their numbers tell us about the future of the Ducks at the NHL level.
