February 2013 - Mitch Wahl has been traded to the Philadelphia Flyers. Wahl's career has fallen drastically as he nears the end of his entry-level contract. The former 2008 2nd round draft pick has spent most of his recent years in the ECHL after being demoted from Abbotsford of the AHL, most recently with the Utah Grizzlies where he has registered 39 goals and 99 points over two years and 83 games. Wahl holds no fantasy significance at this point in time. Brendan Ross
January 2013 – Wahl has been great for Utah of the ECHL this season with 36 points in 26 games and is top 10 in league scoring. He is also showing growth from his 40 points in 38 games last season. He will likely see an AHL recall soon, but remains a long shot at the NHL. Jason Banks
March 2012 – Wahl developed his game out in the WHL with the Spokane Chiefs. He is a definite offensive center man, but can play in the defensive zone as well. He is player that possesses a good shot, vision, and ability to be the play maker. Unfortunately he hasn’t been as healthy as planned in his young pro career. He was loaned in the AHL from the Flames to Hamilton Bulldogs, although he is currently playing in ECHL for Utah.
Fantasy Outlook: D-
Wahl is a smooth skating center man that has been hit a bit with injury bug in his early pro career.

Fantasy Prospects Report Notes (Any FPR's released in the last 18 months will not be listed here):
2009 Fantasy Prospects Report:
The Calgary Flames are the perfect example of how to establish and maintain a team identity despite the annual turnover every team undergoes. A blue-collar centre with a fine playmaking touch, 2008 second round selection Mitch Wahl has just average size and skating ability, but a ton of heart. A point-per-game-plus player two out of his three seasons in the Dub, Wahl finished tied for second in playoff scoring among all Spokane Chiefs. Wahl will be an excellent addition to a third scoring line in Calgary in the coming years.
Upside: Star pugilist, (15-40-55+, 80+ PIM)
Certainty (NHLer; Upside): 80%; 60%
