Saint John Flames Opening Day Roster

by pbadmin
on
When I saw someone had written an opening day roster
prediction
for the American Hockey League’s Portland Pirates I
just couldn’t
resist wondering what the Saint John Flames would look
like
on paper come early October. Now I work for the team,
I know
many of the players’ attitudes and work ethics, so
these are
all taken into account when I try to decide who will
and who
won’t make the big team. So here it goes…
The Flames will be coached this season by IHL veteran
head coach
Jim Playfair, formerly of the Michigan K-Wings.
Calgary Flames
GM Craig Button and Playfair are believed to have a
close
relationship having worked for the same organization
(Dallas
Stars) for many seasons. Mr. Playfair has already
been quoted
as saying Button is very understanding as to the needs
of what
a prospect needs to develop and that’s veterans to
learn from.
Therefore you can expect a few names that have kicked
around
the fringe of the NHL for quite awhile to play under
Playfair
and his assistant coach, former St.Louis Blue Ron
Wilson.
At forward, the Calgary Flames already have 10
sure-fire
starters and they all have one-way contacts; therefore
they
cannot be demoted without clearing waivers first.

They are:


Cory Stillman (LW)
Bill Lindsay (LW)
Dave Lowry (LW)
Andrei Nazarov (LW)
Jason Weimer (C/LW) Read more»

Soo Greyhounds Bantam Camp Wraps Up

by Brad Coccimiglio
on
The Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds held their first ever Bantam mini-camp on Monday August 28th and Tuesday August 29th. The camp was for all players selected in the 1999 OHL Bantam Draft or in the 2000 OHL Priority draft who were of Bantam age. In total 23 players attended the 2 day camp.
10 players from the Bantam camp are eligible to attend the Greyhounds main camp and compete for a spot on the Greyhounds roster when the team opens up the full camp on August 30th. Those 10 players include defensemen Chris Martin, Dustin Van Ballegooie, Tyler Campbell, and Jeremy Swanson, centres Brent Crawford, Cliff Miller and Craig Meredith as well as wingers Mike Melinko, Tyler Barath and Brett Trudell. Swanson and Trudell were the Greyhounds top 2 selections in the 2000 OHL draft. Swanson was selected in the 1st round (16th overall) while Trudell was selected in the 2nd round (36th overall). The other 8 players were selected in the 1999 OHL Bantam Draft.
By the looks of things the Greyhounds may be in for another successful season. Four players in particular, all defensemen, used this 2 day mini-camp to showcase themselves to Greyhounds management. They include Dustin Van Ballegooie, Jeremy Swanson, Chris Martin and Tyler Campbell. Read more»

Predators Announce Rookie Camp Roster

by Greg Andrade
on
The Nashville Predators have released their roster for the upcoming rookie camp and tournament in Traverse City, Michigan, Sept. 2-5. There are several top propsects on the roster this year, including Denis Arkhipov, who recently signed a contract has finally come to North America. Arkhipov is one of the top prospects in the organization and an excellent goal scorer. He has an outside chance to make the Predators this season and his initial performance at the rookie tournament could be the first step toward the NHL.
Other strong prospects include Jonas Andersson, who was the most impressive rookie in last year’s camp. Andersson also has a chance to make the Predators this season, especially after spending an entire season in North America with the North Bay Centennials of the OHL. Martin Bartek has completed his QMJHL career and could also be a candidate to play in the NHL this season, but he will likely spend the year in Milwaukee of the IHL.
Scott Hartnell is perhaps the biggest name among this group of prospects, after he was selected sixth overall by the Predators in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. Hartnell will look to impress the Nashville staff and show the team that he is closer to the NHL than the scouts believe, but it is almost certain that he will be back with Prince Albert of the WHL this season.
