Maine vs. UNH weekend

by Jeff Morton
on
“They showed why they’re in the top ten in the country, and we showed
why we’re not”, lamented University of Maine head coach Shawn Walsh
after the UNH Wildcats handed Maine their heads in a 4-1 pounding at the
Whittemore Center in Durham, NH Saturday evening. The teams skated to a
0-0 tie the night before, giving both teams reason to be optimistic for
Saturday, but Ty Conklin and the rest of the Wildcats outplayed Maine to
win the weekend and a share of first place in Hockey East.

The first game of the weekend was largely uneventful with extremely
close checking and only a few quality scoring chances. Both goalies
played well with strong defenses playing well in front of them.
Although the game had no scoring, Maine severely outplayed UNH but
could not finish, and UNH’s penalty kill looked more like a 5 on 5
situation. The moral victory went to Maine, but Saturday night was
quickly approaching and UNH had just found a jumbo can of “whoop-ass”
behind an unused jar of “offense,” both would be opened on Saturday
night.

With Saturday night finally upon Durham, the crowd was restless but
definitely more excited than the night before. The arena was full by
6:30 and the students were already chanting and carrying on. The game
started with a distinctly different look, UNH had a scoring
opportunity. UNH head coach Dick Umile hoped out loud the night before
that his team could build on Friday’s performance and keep improving,
well it happened. Although the first period was scoreless, not only had
UNH goalie Ty Conklin played yet Read more»

2001 AHL All-Star Game – Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA

AHL All-Star Skills Competition

Before a boisterous hometown crowd of 8,314, Planet USA doubled up on the Canadian All-Stars to claim the skills competition 16-8. The night was underway with the In Glas Co Puck Control Relay. Planet USA grabbed the quick lead gaining two of possible two points. The relay, consisting of two races, started with three skaters for each team, with Planet USA’s Petersen, Mottau and Kraft leading the Canadians. The individual race between Butsayev and Manlow followed with Butsayev finding the finish line first.

The VIC Ambush followed with player vs. netminder. Each netminder is faced with two different skaters. On the whistle, the first shooter starts from the blue line and picks up any one of five pucks at the hash marks and attempts to score. Shooters have 12 seconds to score as many as five goals…rebounds are allowed. In the end it was the Canadian All-Stars that edged Planet USA for the event and gained the point.

In the KOHO Fastest Skater contest, three players per squad start on opposite sides of the rink from each other and race counter-clockwise one lap around the rink. The Canadian All-Stars swept the event and gained the two possible points, edging Planet USA and taking the lead, 3-2

Undoubtedly one of the most popular events is the CCM Hardest Shot. The title of “Winner of the Hardest Slapshot” is one that any player would love to have added to his name. It could be dubbed “Coolest Event to Win”, in this writer’s opinion. There are two possible points to be won, one Read more»

IceDogs Mid-Season Report

OHL 2000 – 2001

IceDogs Mid-Season Report

The Mississauga IceDogs may not have a contending team this year, but that should not stop true hockey fans from visiting the rink. If you love hockey, like I do, you should be able to find entertainment in both the wins and loses, especially at the junior level. On any given night you have the chance to watch many talented, young players. The money you put out for tickets is not jacked-up to compensate some overpaid, underachiever who has been warming the pine all season. These guys play hard for the love of the game and the chance to develop into tomorrow’s leaders. Win or loose junior hockey is still the best bang for your hard-earned buck. Read more»

Prospect news and notes

by Randy Nicholson
on

News from Sweden: A brief update regarding Mikael Tellqvist’s progress this week followed by some news on a lesser known Leafs’ prospect currently playing in Sweden … at the beginning of the week, Djurgarden’s head coach Nilsson announced that he will be utilizing his back-up goalie more often in upcoming games … Djurgarden remains comfortably atop the SEL and Nilsson would like to have his #1 stopper well rested for the play-off grind that is now just around the corner … Tellqvist is also expected to play for the Swedish National Team at the Swedish Hockey games in mid February and so some extra days off would be well advised … Mikael, meanwhile, was solid in a 4-2 victory against Timra … it was tough game for Tellqvist in terms of concentration as there were many long periods when he did not see any action at all … in his second appearance the week, Tellqvist led his team to a hard-fought 4-3 victory over Malmo … this time, Mikael stopped 26 of 29 shots but his defensemen ably cleared almost every second attempt … The Maple Leafs actually have a second prospect playing in the SEL … Pierre Hedin was selected by Toronto in the 8th round of the 1999 Entry Draft … Hedin has been playing for MoDo, a very good hockey team in northern Sweden with very long tradition and glorious past, since 1997/98 season … Pierre is a solid defenceman, perhaps No. 2 on his team … he is very good defensively and yet able to produce some offence as well … although somewhat prone to commit giveaways when caught up ice on the attack, Hedin is a workhor Read more»
