Roman Vondracek- 2003 eligible prospect

by Ivana Paulova
on

On of the many late born 1984 players who still has one year and a half before being potential draft pick of one of the NHL teams. Right now Roman Vondracek is a player of the junior team of Sparta Praha but his history as far as different teams are concerned is very rich. He is a member of the U-18 national selection which has participated on the Viking Cup taking place in Canada. Roman played good games there where for most of the time he was a first liner and scored 1 goal.

Roman gained the nomination to Viking Cup taking by his good performance in a tournament taking place in Slovakia at the beginning of November. Czech squad performed really well there wining the tournament in Kezmarok with full points beating Russia 3:1, Slovakia 7:1 and Germany 6:0. Roman played all 3 games where he scored 1 goal and had 2 assissts.

As many other players who are now members of Sparta also Roman isn’t Prague native. He comes from town of Trutnov which is on the North of Czech Republic. But as usual he was taken to hockey rink by his dad who liked to watch hockey. Roman was about 5 when he first stood on the ice. His dad wanted Roman desperately to do something and hopefully also achieve something. Hockey seemed as a good option for him. In the 4th grade Roman started to play for Nachod which is about an hour away from Trutnov. Roman’s dad was taking him there everyday. In the 5th grade his talent was spotted by coach of Hradec Kralove when Nachod came to play against them. Roman was presented with a new offer and he accepted that. This lasted till the 7th grade.

2003 Draft: Robert Nilsson Report

by pbadmin
on

Before the season most people believed that Robert would have no problems making Leksand’s team
in the SEL. The team was relegated from the Swedish Elitserien and was now to play in the 2nd-tier league.
As the season got starting Robert got ill and missed the first couple of games. Then he was back on the team
only to see very limited ice-time. This isn’t/wasn’t very surprising really. Despite Robert’s excellent skills, he is still very young and Leksand’s squad is without any doubt the strongest in the 2nd-tier league. The player material
is most likely even stronger than what several of the SEL teams can show up.

With forwards like Jens Nielsen, Mikael Karlberg, Stefan Hellkvist, Sami Ahlberg, Chris Goverdaris, it’s not
easy for an 16-year old kid to have great impact. Not to forget all the other talented prospects in Leksand
(Jonas Norduist – Chicago, Daniel Widing – Nashville, Johan Eneqvist – Montreal)..etc.

So instead of being a regular on the team, Robert found him self in a role where he was part time a member
of the senior team, and part time with Leksand’s junior team in the Swedish J-20 league.
This is the way it has been most of the season for Robert.
If he would have played for another team he could easily have had quite an impact, but with the strong competition
in Leksand it’s more or less impossible.

He has so far played 14 games with in the 2nd-tier league (Allsvenskan) and he has been registered for 1 goal
and 4 assists (5 points). Read more»

New Top 20 Prospect List

Stats through games of January 24th, 2002

1) G, Ari Ahonen (8.5), Albany (AHL)

Notes:

The Finnish netminder is currently in his 1st pro season. He has split the goaltending chores with fellow prospect Scott Clemmensen. Even though he has only won 4 games so far in Albany, he has a respectable GAA of 2.91 and a sparkling SV% of .914 for a weak Albany squad. Ahonen is able to keep his team in many games that they shouldn’t be in. Has had to face 35 to 40 shots on many occasions. Quick and agile, Ari is the goalie of the future for the Devils

2) LW/RW, Christian Berglund (8), New Jersey (NHL)

Notes:

The gritty Swedish winger has adapted to the North American game with ease. Started the season in Albany where he posted 23 points (9 goals and 14 assists). He was called up on January 9th for his first NHL game and has made a big impression in the swamp with 6 points through his first 9 NHL games. Berglund plays a strong two way game, and is not afraid to crash and bang in the corners. He should stick in New Jersey for the rest of the season and shoul Read more»

WHL – OHL All Star Game

by Aaron Dowding
on
The cream of the crop from the WHL East and the OHL West gathered in central Alberta for the second annual Hershey Cup All-Star series.

The series consists of the best players from the QMJHL, WHL and the OHL.The League that wins the most games wins the Hershey Cup. If there are ties, the goals for/goals against tiebreaker system is in effect. The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) won the first cup last year.

On Wednesday night, the aggression style of play by the WHL was exceeded by the passing and defensive plays of the OHL resulting in a 7-2 win. Western Hockey League falls in All Star Game 7-2

It looked good early for the West when Red Deer Rebel Doug Lynch scored with only 51 seconds gone in the first.
Ontario West was quick to respond when Brad Boyes of the Erie Otters snuck it past starting goaltender Josh Harding from the Regina Pats 4:48 into the period.

Coach Brent Sutter combined Brandon Segal and Tyler Beechey of the Calgary Hitmen on a line but they were unsuccessful in any points.

The first 20 minutes ended in an unlikely 1-1 tie when both tenders turned away tricky shots by doing nothing short of standing on their head.

The second half of the game was more of a one-sided goalie duo as Jason Bacashihua turned away everything in sight. Michael Garnett was not so lucky when his defense failed and was faced with many odd man rushes from the hash marks.

The contest had a player of the game for each team with the award going to Brent Kelly (OHL) of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. Starting Read more»
