An Interview with Danny Bois

by Jason Ahrens
on

Danny Bois is a gritty forward who can be deployed in a number of ways, as a defensive forward, as an agitator or as an offensive winger.

Hockeys Future– Dan can you tell our readers a bit about yourself, where you grew up, what style of play you play?

Dan Bois– I grew up in Thunder Bay a city in northern Ontario. I’m a power forward who likes to go up and down the wings and hit everyone I see.

HF– At what point growing up did you realize that you had a future in the OHL?

Bois– Probably two years ago.(laughs) The year I was drafted by the Knights, that’s pretty much it, I never thought that it would happen.

HF– Were there any major influences growing up on your hockey career?

Bois– Both of my parents, my Mom and Dad were big supporters of me.

HF– This is your 2nd season with the Knights, what type of progress have you seen in your game?

Bois– Its supposed to get easier each year, but I haven’t been scoring much this year as well as I did last year, but I’ve been trying to play defensively and put the team first.

HF– As you mentioned your offensive numbers are down this year, do you feel the added pressure, or the extra responsibilities of being Captain have been a factor in this?

Bois– Well, no. Last year I was left alone in front of the net on the power play, nobody knew who I was. This year teams are paying more attention to me and its been a lot harder.

HF– Tell me a bit about your draft day experience, did you attend it and wh Read more»

Interview with Lightning Prospect Sascha Goc

by Chapin Landvogt
on

German defenseman Sascha Goc was traded from the New Jersey Devils to the Tampa Bay Lightning organization in the fall of 2001. In what has been a bit of a whirlwind season, Sascha is currently playing with the Springfield Falcons of the AHL, thus wearing his fourth different jersey in this season alone. He was kind enough take some time to answer some questions.

Hockey’s Future: Sascha, you played a handful of games in the NHL last season and had a very nice plus/minus statistic in the process. You were also summoned to duty as an extra body by the New Jersey Devils during the playoffs and you even gave an interview with Germany’s Premiere World cable system. You began this season in the NHL with the Devils which the German audience got to see as you logged a great deal of ice time in a 4-6 loss to the New York Islanders. At this point in the season, did you think you had finally made it to the NHL for good?

Sascha Goc: Well, more or less, I had a good feeling about it. The coaching staff (Robinson and Fetisov) also let me know that they were pleased with me and I should just keep up the good work. Even Scott Stevens said that I had earned myself a spot on the team. Since all three are Hall of Fame defensemen, I was feeling pretty sure of myself. However, in New Jersey as elsewhere in the NHL, the general manager makes the decisions and he (Lamoriello) obviously had a different opinion.

HF: Did you get along well with Hall of Fame defenseman and, at the time, Devils head coach Larry Robinson, and were you surprised by his being fired?Read more»
