History

Andreas Thuresson was overlooked in the first year he was eligible for the draft.  Scored impressive 10 goals and 5 assists as a SEL rookie with Malmö in 2006-07.

2007-08: Thuresson had an impressive season in what was his first taste of North American hockey. In 77 games with the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL) he scored 11 goals and seven assists. The forward also played in six postseason games, but failed to register any points.

2008-09: Thuresson played 74 games in his second year with Milwaukee, scoring 14 goals, 15 assists for 29 points. He added 3 goals, 1 assist in 11 playoff games.

2009-10: Thuresson made his NHL debut with Nashville at the end of October and split time between the Predators and their AHL affiliate Milwaukee in his third North American season. In 22 games for the Predators he scored 1 goal with 2 assists and was -5 while averaging 10 minutes of ice time per game. Thuresson played 50 games for Milwaukee during the regular season, scoring 14 goals with 19 assists and was +13 with 24 PMs. Thuresson was the leading scorer for the Admirals in the playoffs with 2 goals and 7 assists; finishing +3 in seven games with 16 PMs. Thuresson was re-signed to a one-year contract by Nashivlle in June 2010.

2010-11: Thuresson skated in three games for the Predators in mid-January; spending most of the season in the AHL with Milwaukee. He was scoreless and -1 with 2 PMs seeing just over ten minutes of ice time per game with Nashville. In 76 AHL games with the Admirals he scored 14 goals with 24 assists and was +3 with 41 PMs. He skated in all 13 playoff games for Milwaukee and was +2 with 3 goals, 3 assists and 10 PMs. Thuresson was obtained by the Rangers for Brody Dupont in a trade with Nashville in July 2011 and signed a one-year contract with New York.

Talent Analysis

He's a two-way player who shoots right, has good size, is aggressive and plays physical and has decent offensive skills. 

Future

Expected to start the season in Connecticut, Thuresson has not been able to yet make the transition to the NHL. A very successful start to the season with the Whale may bring an early call-up.

Wheat Kings make a great pickup with Foster at Trade Deadline

by Nam Hoang
on
At the trade deadline 10 days ago, the Wheat Kings traded forward Richard Mueller, the team’s leading scorer, for 19-year old Adrian Foster of the Saskatoon Blades. In his first game as a Wheat King, Foster scored the team’s only two goals, including the game winner in OT. In 4 games with his team, Foster has accumulated 3 goals and an assist. Although it may seem to be too early to determine which team got the better end of the deal, I feel that Brandon has come out on top.

In Foster, they have acquired a legitimate 1st line sniper, and no drop in production in comparison with Mueller. Additionally, Adrian has a much better upside, along with bringing more size and strength up the middle. There are still those critics who believe that Foster is too injury prone, but i do not agree. Foster has only been seriously injured once, and is almost at 100%. I believe that his nagging abdominal injuries are behind him and that the sky’s the limit for him. The New Jersey Devils and Dave Conte must have known and believed this as well since they drafted him with their first round pick in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft even though CSB did not even rank him in their report.

OHL WEST STARS GET BIG WIN AT HERSHEY CUP CHL ALL-STAR SERIES

The Ontario Hockey League Western Conference All-Stars scored a big 7-2 win
over the Western Hockey League Eastern Conference All-Stars last night in
Red Deer, Alberta, giving the OHL a chance to claim the 2002 Hershey Cup.

The win leaves the OHL with a 1-1 record in the series, which features two
all-star teams from each of the three CHL leagues. The Quebec Major Junior
Hockey League is 1-0 after its Lebel Conference All-Stars beat the OHL
Eastern Conference team 4-2 in Ottawa last Wednesday, while the WHL is 0-1.

There is one game left in the Hershey Cup CHL All-Star Series – Wednesday,
Feb. 6 in Rimouski, Quebec, when the QMJHL Dilio Conference All-Stars host
the WHL Western Conference All-Stars. If Quebec wins that game, the QMJHL
wins its second consecutive Hershey Cup. If the WHL wins, all three leagues
will have 1-1 record and the Cup winner will be decided on goals for/goals
against.

On Wednesday night in Red Deer, the game was tied 1-1 halfway through the
second period but the OHL West Stars exploded for three goals in six minutes
in the second period to lead 4-1. They then followed with another three-goal
binge in the third period to complete the rout.

Second period goals by Rick Nash of the London Knights, Steve Ott of the
Windsor Spitfires and Kris Newbury of the Sarnia Sting in the second period
put the OHL West ahead for good. Below is the complete game summary from
last night’s game.

OHL WEST 7, WHL EAST 2
