67’s on the Wrong End of High Scoring Affair

by Jake Dole
on
The Ottawa 67’s started their 2001-2002 season in Belleville, Ontario. The two teams are expected to have competitive seasons, as the rivalry between the two has been at it’s outmost the past 5+ years. Last year, the Belleville Bulls won the division title, breaking the 67’s 5-year streak as #1.
Both teams underwent significant changes to their respective rosters. The Senators witnessed players such as Jonathan Zion, Vadim Sozinov, Jeremy Van Hoof, Lance Galbraith, among others, leave, and newbies such as Lane Moodie, Mark Mancari and Yaroslav Sklenar enter the picture. The Bulls have started their season with a lot of question marks. Gone are the top-liners Branco Radivojevic (Phoenix training camp), and Randy Rowe (Worchester), which leaves Kyle Wellwood as the remaining member of the Bulls’ former first line.
The 67’s were missing two significant members of their team. Sebastien Savage suffered a hairline fracture of the jaw, and does not yet look close to returning to action. He was seen skating a little bit, but has not participated in scrimmages yet. Carter Trevisani is currently at the Carolina Hurricanes training camp, and is expected to eventually return.
The new captain of the Ottawa 67’s this year is Zenon Konopka, with Brendan Bell and Miguel Delisle the assistant captains. Right now, it is expected that Konopka and Delisle will be the main offensive contributors, with Brendan Bell as the main puck handler. Brian Kilrea, the coach of the Ottawa 67’s has mentioned that he expects Delisle to be a 50-goal, 125-point produc Read more»

Boyes follows up strong

How Buoyant is Boyes?

It was just over a year ago that the Leafs drafting 24th overall in the first round, through good fortune and in some cases miscalculation on behalf of other teams scouting staffs, found themselves calling out the name of Brad Boyes with their selection. Going into the draft the Erie pivot had been labelled as too small and too slow despite 82 points in his first campaign out from under the shadow of Tim Connolly. His follow-up season netted him OHL MVP honours and a place on the WJC team, not to mention 90 points evenly split amongst goals and assists.

This comes as no surprise to Erie Coach Dave MacQueen. “He wants the puck when the game is on the line.” His offensive number are also nothing out of the ordinary according to his coach as he has a “great release on the snapper (and his) passes are very accurate and timely.” While the benchboss concedes that Boyes “needs to improve first step” he also maintains that his “overall speed is average.” Further, he goes on to point out that his center is “very shifty at close quarters” and this ability enables him to excel at deking defensemen or goaltenders. That same quality “reduces chances for opponents to get him in trouble physically” although they will find even when standing still the Erie forward “rarely gets knocked off the puck (due to a ) great stance.”
Still, though he “does the job well” when in front of the net, MacQueen acknowledges that this “isn’t his game.” Rather Brad Boyes is a motion player, one who needs to be moving to be most effective. To that end the coach Read more»

WHL Preview

With the pre-season firing on all cylinders, it is time to look into the new rules of play for the WHL. Junior hockey fans are in for a real change this season with new procedures like the “Fast Face-Off” and “4-on-4” regulation play. Yes, this may be the season fans learn to love our gifted men in black and white stripes. This year may put them in better graces with fans due to a host of contraversial rules handed down by the Canadian Hockey League. These rule changes will be in effect during the pre-season and regular season in all three CHL umbrella leagues: the Western Hockey League, Ontario Hockey League, and Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

New Rules Overview:

“Fast Face-Off”- This procedure will essentially give the linesman the ability to drop the puck on face-offs, regardless of whether both centres are ready for the drop. The rule is based on a 5-second line change (per team) and an additional allocation of 5-seconds to prepare for the puck drop. When the team line changes are complete, the linesman will blow his whistle, indicating no more than five seconds until the puck drop will occur. The obvious result of this rule will be that players must quickly get in position for face-offs, knowing the other team may gain control of the puck if they are not prepared. Face-offs are the beginning step in garnering control of the play, thus teams will emphasize the importance of this new rule to their teams. Fans will definitely be divided on their thoughts about this new regulation. Some will love the quicker speed, others will publ Read more»
