Phantoms Taste First Defeat; Titans Rally to Win Home Opener

by Bill Meltzer
on

The Philadelphia Phantoms, off to a 4-0-0 start, arrived in Cleveland for a Friday night tilt. It was the Phantoms’ third road game in four nights, which is often a harbinger of trouble. This game was no exception.

Philadelphia’s red hot powerplay was short-circuited in the game, going scoreless in seven opportunities. The Phantoms top line of Mark Freer (subbing for Marty Murray, who is on recall to the Flyers), Mark Greig, and Vaclav Pletka was shut down offensively and was out for three goals against. The top defensive pairing of John Slaney and Bruno St. Jacques also had a bad night and rookie goaltender Maxime Ouellet only came up with 19 of the 24 shots he faced (conversely, the Barons’ Vesa Toskala turned aside 29 of 31 Philadelphia shots).

The Phantoms took an early lead, with Peter Vandermeer converting a Petr Hubacek feed at 1:41 of the first period. The game went downhill from there for Philadelphia, although the Hubacek line would once again tally a goal (which temporarily tied the game 2-2) early in the second period; Mike Lephart doing the scoring honors.

The final minute of play took quite awhile to complete, with fights breaking out three different times, including a pair of fights at the final buzzer.

Meanwhile, the news was better at the ECHL level. In a game televised in the Philadelphia area, the Trenton Titans won their home opener by a 3-1 count over the Reading Royals, riding a three goal outburst in the third period.

The Titans played a very sluggish first period, getting outshot 13 to 4 and losing most of the Read more»

Is Petr Kanko playing illegally ??

by Jan Raz
on

Petr Kanko, a top czech prospect for this years draft, is playing for Kitchener illegaly. Kanko still has a valid contract in Sparta and went to Kitchener without permition to leave and without obtaining a transfer card from the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), the club said on Friday. That´s why IIHF was instructed to solve this matter and it should forbidd Kanko to play.

This information was given by the Sparta Prague manager Martin Urban. Sparta expects it´s top junior player to return and fulfill his current contract. This case was also given to a Czech lawyers and if Kanko wont make up his mind, he may be facing the Canadian court of justice. Let´s hope this player is as smart as talented.

Present day Rome rises in Kootenay

by Jeff Bromley
on

In the dying days of Ancient Rome, it was said that Nero fiddled while the city burned. Present day Kootenay ICE defenseman Aaron Rome might want to do some fiddling of his own come June of 2002. And the only thing that’ll be burning is himself, right up the scouting charts.

The Red Line Report, a private scouting list out of Lake Placid, New York that compiles a monthly list of NHL Draft hopefuls similar to the NHL’s Central Scouting Bureau only the list includes players from Europe where the CSB doesn’t, listed Rome at the 36th spot in it’s first monthly report of the season. The list’s number one rated prospect is Medicine Hat Tiger defensemen Jay Bouwmeester who along with Rome are late-born players of 1983 (past September 15) which bumps them to the next draft year. The two also share the same birthday of September 27.

“I have high expectations of myself, like any hockey player at this level should have,” said Rome after being informed of the ranking. “I wasn’t expecting it but I think that it doesn’t really mean anything right now. It doesn’t mean anything yet but hopefully at the end of the year, maybe.”

Rome arrived in Cranbrook rather quietly and inconspicuously at a time when the pomp and circumstance of Mike Comrie’s short-lived stay in the Kootenay’s were dominating the headlines. On October 16, 2000 in the less-than-hyped trade that saw the unrealized potential in Jordan Wallin head to the Saskatoon Blades in exchange for a defenseman that didn’t seem to get much of chance in the Bridge City, Aaron Rome got a chance to start over.
