2000-2001 USHL Eastern Division Outlook

by Jason Shaner
on
The new USHL season has already begun and the early season action is as
action packed as ever. This season the league welcomes two new teams
although they are not new franchises to the league. The Chicago Steel
join play this year after playing in Fargo the past few seasons as the
Fargo-Moorhead Ice Sharks. The Tri-City Storm also debut this year.
The Storm were formerly known as the Twin Cities Vulcans. Last season
the Vulcans won the Junior A National Championship after finishing 2nd
in the playoffs to the Green Bay Gamblers. They will be out to defend
their title for sure. As will Green Bay who will look to add yet
another division title and playoff banner to their impressive history.
Several star players have left and several more have taken their
places. Below will be a look at each division, the team’s outlooks in
the order I predict they will finish and some of their rising stars who
will take them there.

Eastern Division

1. Green Bay Gamblers -
The Gamblers are not as strong as they may have been in past years but
until someone knocks them off their roost, 1st place is theirs. The
Gamblers do have some major players returning this season. Gone are
offensive wizard Aaron Smith and defensive wild-man Jeff Finger but the
Gamblers still have plenty in the cupboard. Luke Stauffacher will lead
the way on the offense but Ryan Moderson and Alan Swanson bring USHL
experience and the offensive know-how the Gamblers will use. These
leaders will work their fresh faces into the offensive flow as was done

Kootenay’s Tutschek Playing the Waiting Game

by Jeff Bromley
on
On the ice, Kootenay ICE forward Brad Tutschek is used to facing his opponents head on, with his trademark toughness, grit and attitude that have made him a stalwart in the ICE
lineup since he joined the club via a trade from the Medicine Hat Tigers in 1996. Now, the gritty center is battling two opponents he has little or no control over. Father time and the
specter of a nagging shoulder injury that is taking longer than expected to heal.

Brad Tutschek is a twenty-yr-old forward this season and him, along with teammates Dion Lassu, Dean Arsene and Mike Comrie are all subject to WHL rules stating that any team is
only allowed to carry three overage (twenty’s) players on their roster after the November 1st deadline. With the exception of scoring sensation Mike Comrie, one of Arsene, Lassu or
Tutschek will be traded by the Kootenay ICE by this Wednesday or sooner to accommodate the league overage rule.

In a perfect world, it is a decision that ICE Director of Hockey Operations Bob Tory would probably rather not make. For Brad Tutschek, the problematic shoulder injury and the fact
that he hasn’t see any action yet this season has kept the power forward from making Tory’s decision that much harder. “Obviously it’s nerve racking, it has been from day one. I knew
that I probably wouldn’t get into any games before the deadline, if any. I try not to think about it much but whatever happens it will be the best for the team,” said Tutschek.

The training, the therapy, the practices and the inability to get back into the lineup ar Read more»

WCHA Weekend Notes and Recap

by Erik Freeman
on
More WCHA action took place this past weekend. The Minnesota Gophers
continued their winning ways in a sweep of Minnesota-Duluth. Michigan Tech
pulled off one of the biggest upsets in this early season by beating
defending national champions, North Dakota in Grand Forks 5-4. The Sioux
came back to win 5-2 to split the series. Wisconsin swept Minnesota
State-Mankato in two one goal games. In non-conference action Denver played
Boston College tough but couldn’t come away with a victory as they fell 3-2
in both games. St. Cloud State defeated Bemidji State 3-1 and 7-0 in a home
and home series. Alaska-Anchorage swept in state rival Alaska Fairbanks.

Minnesota wasn’t able to put the Bulldogs away on Friday night as freshman
goaltender Adam Coole played a stellar game in his debut. However, Saturday
was a different night. The Gophers dominated the play in every aspect.
Erik Westrum continues to look like one of the best players in the country
and an early season Hobey Baker candidate. The one question mark involved
with Westrum and the Hobey Baker is his dirty play. Many will remember last
season’s kicking incident as a negative but this kid can play.

Michigan Tech, are they better than last year’s dismal campaign? We’ll wait
and see, but from the looks of it they seem much improved. Maybe they can
continue to build and hope for the best as they will need to add more skill
players if they want to get to the level of North Dakota on a consistent
basis. If Paul Cabana and Matt Ulwelling can continue scoring Read more»
