Youngsters at the Olympics

by Brandon LeBourveau
on
It was definitely obvious from the beginning that the focus of this tournament was clearly on the hundred or so NHL players who were participating in this year’s Winter Olympics. However, there were some young prospects from different countries who were able to step up and make an impact on their team. These Olympics gave fans an opportunity to see some European players for the first time. Here is a look at how some of the youngsters did during this tournament.

Hurricanes Battle For Playoff Spot

by Dustin Nielson
on

After a great start to the season the Hurricanes have found themselves in a dog fight with the Hitmen and Tigers for the last two playoff spots in the Central division. With only 7 games left what do the Canes need to do in order to secure a playoff spot……

Well the Hurricanes need every win they can get.

Friday night against the Rebels the Canes put in a great effort but fell short on National TV against the countries #1 team.

The next night they were in Cranbrook to take on the Ice. Cranbrook kid Logan Koopmans backstopped the Canes to an important 2-0 win over the Ice. That was Logan’s second shutout of the year. Those two shutouts are the only two the team has this year.

The Hurricanes have six games left this year. Three on the road and then they come home for three to finish the season.

The Canes play each of the Tigers and Hitmen once, a rematch with the Rebels and three games against the Broncos.

The games against the Tigers and the Hitmen will most likely be deciding factors as to where the Canes end up in the standings.

The Broncos and the Rebels will be very tough games for the Hurricanes.

Lethbridge must concentrate on playing good defensive hockey. They have the talent up front and if they play good in their own end chances will come.

The road to the playoffs begins Tuesday for the Canes in Medicine Hat.

Check here Tuesday morning for a recap of that game.

A little chat with Tuomas Pihlman

by pbadmin
on

Tuomas Pihlman, a player of JyP Jyväskylä, was a member of the Finnish U-20 team which captured the bronze medal at the WJC in Czech Republic recently.

Question: You’ve been drafted by the New Jersey Devils. Do you have decided yet when to go there?

Pihlman: No, not I don’t know that yet.

Question: As you would not get a chance to play in the NHL, would you prefer playing in the Minor Leagues or playing in Finland?

Pihlman: In Finland, because hockey there is more technical than in North America.

Question: Could you imagine playing in other European countries?

Pihlman: Hmmmm…. no, hardly.

Question: You were born in Espoo, but play for JyP Jyväskylä. Why don’t you play for local Espoo Blues?

Pihlman: My parents moved to Jyväskylä when I was 12, so I joined the local hockey club there and have been playing for it now for seven years.

Question: What’s your favourite team in Finland and your favourite NHL team?

Pihlman (smiling): In Finland Jyväskylä and in the NHL New Jersey Devils

Question: What is your favourite player?

Pihlman: Mario Lemieux

Question: At the world junior championship in Czech Republic, you wore jersey #29. Is there any specific reason for that?

Pihlman: When I was younger, I had number 49, and I also wear it in the SM-Liiga, but on the WJC team I could not get that, so I chose number 29.

Question: Are you superstitious in any way?
