Diamond In the Rough?

by Sean Speer

With the their third pick of the 2001 NHL draft, the LA Kings selected
University of Michigan center Mike Cammalleri. Drafting Cammalleri 49th
overall is a really credit to the Kings scouting staff and Dave Taylor.
According to the Hockey News (October 31, 2001), Mark Bavis, KIngs scout who
was killed aboard one of the planes that crashed into the Trade Centers on
September 11, campaigned for Cammallerri, as well as, Ohio State forward,
David Steckel, the Kings 2nd pick. It is truly unfortunate that Bavis will
be unable to see Cammallerri succeed in the NHL because I am fairly confident he will.

It is hard to believe he is already in his junior year. It seems like only
yesterday I witnessed Mike take the Ontario Peewee Championships by storm,
as he nonchalantly smashed the tournament record for points. After that
week, I felt obligated to track his career because I believed, exactly what
many people believed after watching him; we had just saw a player who had a
future in the game.

Cammelleri continued through the Toronto Minor system and then easily
adapted to Tier 2 with the Bramlea Blues. In his rookie year, he recorded
103 points and helped lead his team to the Royal Bank Cup. Following that
year, he received a full scholarship to the NCAA most storied hockey
program, U. of Michigan. And to date he has not disappointed.

In his freshmen year, he recorded a respectable 26 points, which was
reasonable considering he was the youngest player in the CCHA by a full
year. Last in his sophomore year, he was forced to take Read more»

Bright Times ahead for Marian Gaborik

by Nathan Robinson

When the Wild took Marian Gaborik third overall in the
2000 entry draft they made the young Slovakian very
happy “It’s a great feeling to be the first player who
was drafted by Minnesota ever, and I’m so happy I can
be there.” As this article will show he’s not the only
one happy he’s there.

Marian Gaborik was drafted third overall in the 2000
entry draft by the Minnesota Wild. So far he hasn’t
left Wild Management or the coaching staff second
guessing their selection of Marian as the teams first
ever pick in the NHL’s entry draft. Marian had an
excellent rookie season in the NHL. He was a co-leader
for goals on the Wild with 18 and finishing the season
with 36 points which was enough for him to be the
leading point-getter on the team. While Marian is
still a teenager at age 19 his second year has the
beginning looks of a real successful year. He has
already managed 12 points in 9 games (4+8=12) which is
exactly a third of his totals from his rookie season.

Marian has tremendous speed, linemate Andrew Brunette
said “with Marian using his speed, I don’t think
anybody can catch him, if he can control himself and
use his speed in specific times, he’ll be really
dangerous.” Another thing about Marian is his maturity
and confidence levels they are pretty impressive for a
19-year-old Brunette said this about Marian “I haven’t
come acros many 19-year olds who are as mature and
confident out there as him. The kid is something else”
Jim Dowd another linemate and friend of Gaborik added
“He’s grown so much even fro Read more»

Brampton Battalion Player Report

by Mark McDonald

Jay McClement (St. Louis Blues, 2nd round 2001)

Jay has good reason to be very proud of his first 15 games of the 2001-2002 season. In fact, apart from Battalion captain Kurt MacSweyn, it could easily be said that Jay has been the team’s best two-way forward, a style of play that he will definitely depend on if and when he cracks the Blues’ lineup.

After potting 30 goals in his sophomore OHL season, he has continued that pace in his third year in the league, with 7 goals in his first 15 games. What’s more, he has been able to keep up that pace without the benefit of Raffi Torres (now with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL) and Lukas Havel (playing professionally in the Czech Republic) as his linemates. Several of his goals have been of the highlight variety, including a short-handed marker against the Erie Otters that featured him splitting the defence and putting a move on Adam Munro that still has Munro looking for his jockstrap. McClement has only three assists thus far this year, due to several factors. For one, McClement’s versatility allows coach Stan Butler to play him in all situations, including defensive roles that don’t allow McClement to play with the team’s more offensive weapons. Perhaps more importantly, his left winger (Chris Rowan) has taken until the last few games to get untracked, and his right winger (Aaron Van Leusen – Detroit, 4th round 2000) has missed nine games with an injury.

McClement is the type of player that any coach wants on the ice to protect a one-goal lead in the final minute. His innate ability to g Read more»
