Every Monday, our man Justin Fisher will break down the weekend that was for various Leaf prospects worldwide. Last week's report can be found here.
Things have gone from bad to worse for Ryan Rupert, one of two Leafs’ 6th round picks in this past draft. Still without a goal this season, Rupert was on a 7-game pointless drought before injuring his shoulder in London’s 6-3 loss to Windsor on Thursday night.
Rupert is expected to miss 4-6 weeks of action , and will now likely miss his opportunity to suit up for Team OHL in the Canada-Russia Subway Super Series.

Look at that picture. Just look at it. That's really all you need to know. "There's no hitting in the KHL." Phooey! Also we have the KHL's Top 10 goals, saves, and hits of the week.

After the jump: 20-ish articles covering a range of subjects. Which player overseas has had the most impressive performance so far? Why is the CHLPA imploding? Who were the best free agent signings of the last CBA? Zack Kassian or Cody Hodgson? Perhaps most importantly: who is Roberto Luongo mocking with his new Twitter avater?

Winter Classic cancelled? WHO SAW THAT ONE COMING?!?!?!?!
On the other hand, there with 9 KHL games on Friday. Good hockey, good highlights.

I think Justin Bourne pointed it out first, Paul Ranger looks absolutely brutal on this first goal. That's, uh, Steve McCarthy, who had a real uneventful NHL career as a defenceman, who looks like he's about to dump the puck in, and then sees this wide-open hole in front of him.
Now, officially, the two shorthanded goals were scored in "three seconds", but counting the time it takes for the Abbotsford Heat players to celebrate and get back to the face-off circle, and then score again, it really takes about 40 or 50 seconds. "Two goals in three seconds" is a slightly misleading moniker, but that doesn't make the Leafs look all the better for it, particularly the way the second goal was scored.
