Following in his Brothers’ Footsteps

by Brandon LeBourveau
on
When news first leaked that the Rangers traded the 38th overall selection in the 2000 Entry Draft to the Detroit Red Wings in return for the 64th and the 95th overall picks, many fans were puzzled with the move since the Rangers kept moving down in a draft already labeled as one of the weakest crops of talent in a few years. With the 38th overall selection, the Red Wings’ selected Tomas Kopecky, a tall and lanky forward from Slovakia. Kopecky was a player many teams had their eye on early in the 2nd round. The 6’3 187 lbs center/left wing is a highly skilled player with excellent offensive instincts and hockey sense. He was teammates with Minnesota Wild star Marian Gaborik in Slovakia during the 1999-2000 season, and finished up his first season of North American hockey last year with the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the WHL, totaling 50 points in 49 games. On the other side of the deal, the Rangers wound up with defenseman Filip Novak 64th overall and center Dominic Moore 95th overall. At first glance the deal looked one-sided in favor of the Red Wings who picked up a great talent in Tomas Kopecky, however now a year and a half later, the deal looks like an excellent one by Rangers’ General Manager Glen Sather. We all know that Filip Novak has emerged as one of the top defensive prospects in the world. What most people don’t know is how good the other player in this deal is, that being Dominic Moore.

Born on September 3, 1980 in Thornhill, Ontario, Dominic Moore has grown up watching and learning the game of hockey from his two older brothers, Mark and Steve, who Read more»

Caps Prospect News

on

Rastislav Stana…has declined to participate in the ECHL All-Star game, and instead remain up with the AHL Portland Pirates. He has appeared in 3 games since his call-up to replace the injured Corey Hirsch. He has also not been notified yet as to whether or not he will be traveling to Salt Lake City for the 2002 Olympics in order to play for the Slovak National Team.

J.F. Fortin…has sparkled for the injury depleted Capitals blueline. His time spent in the ECHL last season may have been a wake-up call for Jean-François. Coach Hanlon for the AHL Portland team has worked with the blueliner, and has impressed Ron Wilson and staff for a prolonged stay with Caps (along with minor league veteran Todd Rohloff).

As Roman Tvrdon returns from his injury, Martin Hlinka goes down…In AHL Portland this season the LW position has been injury plagued. But, since his return Tvrdon has scored 1 goal and is +2 in his 3 games. Hlinka struggles continue, not only in scoring but now also with his latest injury. Hlinka suffered a separated shoulder earlier this month, and could be out at least a month.

OTHER NEWS…the Washington Capitals have signed Colin Forbes to a one-year contract.

The Capitals have also picked-up Ivan Ciernik off of waivers. Originally selected by the Ottawa Senators in the 1996 entry draft (9th round). Ciernik, could be a big banger, with offensive potential but so far this season in his 23 games with the Senators has been loathe. He is currently earning $325,000/year.
