Who on the farm can audition?

by Bill Placzek

Who, on the farm we audition?
As Alpo hopes for new actors in his theatre company, and Mike Smith runs out of players of any real trade value, now is when the Hawks will be evaluating just who might possibly help the team until the Mike Smith drafts are ready for their auditions.

Picked in the 1995 draft, defensemen Marty Wilford, and forward Casey Hankinson remain Hawk property and play as minor pros. Hankinson, presently playing in Hampton Roads, shows average scoring ability and steady defensive play possibly penciled in as a 4th liner. At present, the Blackhawk major league club has almost three lines of the same.
Wilford, also drafted as a Chicago Cub pitcher, is a chunky six footer who has played well on the minor pro level, but is probably not quick enough for the present pro game.

Geoff Peters and Jeff Paul are all that remains from the 1996 draft where the Hawks traded their first round pick for two numbers twos, the third being the departed Remi Royer. San Jose picked Marco Sturm with the #1 and has never looked back.
Geoff Peters produces good all around play and could project as the next Chris Herpinger, a utility forward who always plays hard and does many things decently. And he fits the Chicago salary structure.
Jeff Paul has not shown enough progress to expect him playing in Chicago at this time. The smaller Hawk defensemen are better transition players and it is clear the Alpo system is “transition is much more important than transgression.”
At present, Kyle Calder has be the most intriguing of the class of 1997. An un Read more»

Oilers Prospect Update Part 1

by pbadmin
on
Without a strong farm team in the AHL this franchise is in a distinct disadvantage since it does not have the resources to make up for mistakes on draft day or in the developmental stage.

Shawn Horcoff
Hamilton GP:24 G:10 A:18 PTS:28 +/- -7 PIM:19
Edmonton GP:24 G:5 A:4 PTS:9 +/- +1 PIM:2
- Outstanding first quarter as a rookie in the AHL showing strong two-way play. Has adjusted well to the NHL and will progress to the next level with the experience from this year and training camp next season.

Mike Comrie
Kootenay GP:37 G:39 A:40 PTS:79 +/-(+23)PIM:79
Edmonton GP:16 G:2 A:2 PTS:4 +/-(+2) PIM:2
- Would have benefited greatly if he had started the season in Hamilton along side Horcoff instead of going to Cranbrook a quicker adjustment could have been made. Shows flashes of exceptional vision and playmaking ability, will have greater patience to let plays develop with experience. Needs to shoot more as he would create more scoring opportunities with his quick accurate shot.

Prospect news and notes

by Randy Nicholson
on

Erie’s Brad Boyes has jumped back up into the top three in OHL scoring … the Otter’s star has 78 points (43-35) in 46 games and certainly seems to be fully recovered from a somewhat disappointing performance at the WJC in December … the Baby Leafs’ Jeff Farkas is really on fire and now trails team scoring leader Bobby House by only 6 points … Farkas has 46 points (17-29) in 56 games and will almost certainly overtake House if he isn’t summoned to Toronto … Farkas’ St. John’s linemate Adam Mair is on a similar roll … Mair has 34 points (13-21) in only 38 games and is also a prime candidate for promotion if the parent team continues to struggle … in fact, many AHL observers feel that St. John’s 1st line featuring Farkas and Mair (along with Alexei Ponikarovsky, who is currently up with the big team) could be playing as a unit in Toronto right now … defenseman Petr Svoboda has recently logged huge amounts of ice time due to a rash of injuries and promotions on the St. John’s blueline … though Svoboda’s talent is obvious, he has displayed a very poor attitude since being assigned to the Rock and apparently considers himself too good to be playing in the minor leagues … coaches Crawford and McClelland are working hard to hasten the maturation process for the young Czech … his development remains vitally important to the organization as the braintrust in Toronto continues to ponder the wisdom of dealing a young defender for immediate help … in Sweden, Mikael Tellqvist recently led the National Team to victory at the Swedish Hockey Games
