Sabres Report: From St. Catherines to Charleston

by Ken McKenna
on

The traveling road show otherwise known as the 2001 Buffalo Sabres’ training camp will kick off in St. Catherines, ON on September 12th at the Jack Gatecliff Arena. This will begin a preseason odyssey for the team that will see them travel several hundred miles to points North, South and Midwest, all for the purpose of preparing the Sabres for the coming 2001-02 season.

Following the completion of the Canadian phase of camp on September 15th, the Sabres, in a move that is sure to pad their frequent flyer miles, will depart for that Southern hockey hotbed of Charleston, SC. Charleston, of course, is the home of Buffalo affiliate, and reigning ECHL champ, the South Carolina Stingrays. This portion of camp will run from September 17th-20th, with the team then returning to Buffalo to finish off their camp at both the HSBC Arena and the Pepsi Center in Amherst, NY.

The fun truly begins on September 21st, when Buffalo opens their slate of 6 preseason games with a contest at HSBC Arena vs. the Ottawa Senators. The 2001 preseason schedule looks like this:

Vancouver Giants: Building a Winner

by Dave Donnelly
on

A few hours before the Vancouver Giants began their third pre-season game out at Queen’s Park Arena in New Westminster, I spoke with Scott Bonner, GM, about the organizational plans for the newest team to enter the WHL. A laid-back gentleman, Bonner was warm and relaxed but at the same time candid, and left me with the impression that he was pulling together a wealth of hockey knowledge that had worked collaboratively in formulating a solid game-plan for the full development of the club.

The first order of business for these Giants under Bonner’s tutelage was to put an entertaining product on the ice. He pared it down to bringing together a close-knit group of young players—no bad apples need apply—that realized they are privileged to be playing in the best under-20 league in the world, and who are going to buy into Head Coach Milan Dragicevic’s proven approach: hard work every night.

If the first local pre-season game held earlier in the week at the South Surrey Arena against the Kamloops Blazers—one that they won 6-5 with 16 seconds remaining in OT—is any indication of what is in store for the fans, the Giants will indeed satiate all appetites for some earnest, never-say-die hockey.

Traverse City Tourney Notes

Minnesota’s Comeback Kids

There’s a new team in camp this year and you better watch out!

The Minnesota Wilds first game, of the six team Prospect Tournament in
Traverse City, Michigan, didn’t have a good beginning. They fell behind
three to zero in the first period but came back to win the game five to
four.

The first goal came for the Detroit Red Wings fifty seconds into the
game the first shot was taken and Tomas Kopecky’s wrister slipped past
Brady Block.
With three minutes and twenty seconds left in the first period,
Minnesota’s Brian Passmore was called for hooking. With the power play
it only took the Red Wings twenty-one seconds to score. Ryan Barnes
received the puck from Tomas Kopecky and drilled it into the net and
then followed head first to join the puck in the net.

Detroit was put on the power play again just twenty-one seconds later
when Rod Sarich was sent to the penalty box for holding. A minute into
the power play Danny Groulx passed the puck across the front of the net
to Pavel Datsyuk who one-timed it past Block.

With one minute and two seconds left in the period Dan Cavanaugh of the
Wilds went to the box for interference but a minute later Detroit’s
Jason Baird took a tripping call to nullify the power play and end the
period.

Minnesota came back from the intermission with hunger. Fifty-three
seconds into the second period Eric Johansson scored with the extra room
on the ice, with Cavanaugh and Baird still in their respective penalty
box.

Impressive bunch at ICE Training Camp ’01

Impressive bunch at ICE Training Camp ’01

It’s always a treat to experience the first weekend of WHL hockey in town as the Kootenay ICE held their training camp kickoff to the 2001-2 season over the weekend at the Rec/Plex. As an added bonus this year the club held both their rookie and veteran camps simultaneously, offering anyone who was desperate for hockey more than enough to satisfy their craving.

Starting Friday with forty-five rookies split into two squads taking to the ice, anticipation was high for the 200 or so parents, fans and onlookers curious for a glimpse of the future of the Kootenay ICE. Most of the players, born in either 1985 or 86, did not disapoint. Some stood out enough amoung the young charges to satify Kootenay ICE fans that the future was indeed, in good hands. One in particular stood head and shoulders above the rest. Nigel Dawes, a fifth round Bantam Draft pick (73rd overall) in 2000 is a name you might want to familiarize yourself with because after an impressive camp that included a bump up to the veterans portion of the camp due to the domination of the rookies and barring a total colapse, Dawes has all but sewn up a lucrative rookie spot on the 2001-02 edition of the Kootenay ICE. The diminuitive forward, listed at 5’8″ 175lbs, makes up in talent, speed and touch around the net for what may be a perception of lack of size in today’s WHL in which the players seemingly get bigger and bigger every year.

Kootenay ICE Director of Player Personnel Roy Stasiuk agreed that Dawes has impressed at camp Read more»
