USHL – Black Hawks make moves to bolster playoff hopes

With the trading deadline at midnight Tuesday night, the Waterloo Black Hawks phone was pretty busy. The Black Hawks and head coach Scott Koberinski made three deals before the USHL trading deadline. In the first deal Waterloo sent USHL defensive veteran Eric Weum, who has been out for awhile with mono, to the Great Falls Americans of the AWHL.

In return the Hawks get the Americans captain Zac Headrick who on the season has amassed 6 goals and 25 assists to go with 128 penalty minutes. Headrick led all defenseman in the AWHL in scoring. Waterloo also sent forward Nate Hansen to the Des Moines Buccaneers in return for Andrew Nelson. Nelson totaled 6 goals and 9 assists on the year for the Bucs. In the final trade of the day Waterloo also sent recently acquired big man Keith Boyer to Des Moines in exchange for forward Ross Carlson. On the year Carlson has 5 goals and 12 assists. Final rosters are not set until early in February.

The Black Hawks hope the new offensive minded defenseman and experienced forwards will help push the Hawks over the hump and into contention for a potential playoff spot. Currently Waterloo is 10-19-1 for 21 and 12th place out of a 13 team league. The 8th and final playoff spot is currently held by the Chicago Steel who have 30 points. If Waterloo can shore up it’s offensive problems and keep their solid goaltending they are just a winning streak away from getting into the final spot.

Norway News and Notes

Former Rangers prospect/minor leaguer Anders Myrvold decided the AHL and Hartford was not for him. Myrvold signed a contract after agreeing to be released with Fribourg of the Swiss league for the remainder of their season. Myrvold said he hopes to return to the Rangers and Hartford for the playoffs. Myrvold decided that there was “no room at the inn” in New York with the big club so more ice time in Europe was more to his satisfaction.

Espen Knutsen continues to play more and more for the Columbus Blue Jackets logging nearly 27 minutes in the past 2 games. Knutsen of Oslo has struggled with the Jackets but looks to be improving.

Norwegian Patrik Thoresen is playing for Moncton of the QMJHL and is currently second in the entire Q-league in rookie scoring with 17goals and 41points in 33 games. Thoresen is fast moving up the central scouting boards ratings for the 2002 NHL entry draft. If his mind is in it… watch out for this kid.

St.Louis Blues prospect Tore Vikingstad has signed another deal with his German club Düsseldorf. Vikingstad has been a key player for his club and Blues fans will have to wait another year or so to see this talented player.

Jonas Norgren has been splitting time in the nets with Geir Østberg in Storhamar. Norgren locked up the starting job earlier this season but after struggles early in the season Norgren was named Co-no.1.

Kootenay Swaps Rear-guards at Deadline

by Jeff Bromley

The Kootenay ICE made a case for the defense over a three-game road trip last weekend, unfortunately it just wasn’t a very good one. The Key City club managed a paltry one point out of a possible six with losses against Swift Current and Lethbridge and a tie against the Medicine Hat Tigers and it made their current hold on third place in the B.C. Division a precarious one with the Kelowna Rockets a scant two points back with three games in hand. Being so close to the January 14 trade deadline it no longer became a wonder whether or not a personnel change might happen but rather a matter of when. Just before the 3:00 PM M.S.T. deadline Monday, it did and again it would be a long-time familiar face that would be making his way out of town.

Fulfilling one of his trade deadline wishes of shoring up his club’s blueline, Kootenay ICE G.M. Jeff Chynoweth swapped nineteen-yr-old defenseman Trevor Johnson for nineteen-yr-old rearguard Gerard Dicaire of the Seattle Thunderbirds. It’s a change in venue and a deal that Coach Ryan McGill thinks it will be beneficial to the four-year veteran. “Trevor’s been here a long time,” said McGill the day after the deal was made. “Obviously he was a big part of our championship team and when Steve (McCarthy) went down Trevor took over and he took over at the age of seventeen and that’s pretty commendable on his part. He did a heck of a job.”

McGill was quick to commend his fiery blueliner but admitted that certain aspects of the Trail, B.C. product’s play had hit the wall of late. A fact made more glaringly obvious by the minus-22 Read more»
