IHL Players at NHL Training Camps

by Andrew Bourgeois
on

Now that NHL training camps are getting under way many IHL players will find themselves participating at the camps. Below is a breakdown of the IHL clubs that have players at NHL camps and what camp they are at.

AUTHORS NOTE: Due to the fact not all NHL clubs released training camp rosters some players may not have been mentioned.

Long Beach is included in the list though they are not part of the IHL due to the fact players from the Ice Dogs are attending NHL camps. Michigan K-Wings players are not listed due to the fact they are not in the IHL this year and Dallas switched affiliations to Utah and never released their training camp roster but most players with the K-Wings last season were under contract with Dallas and will be at the Stars training camp.
Some players are listed with 2 clubs due to the fact that they played with both IHL clubs during the 1999-2000 IHL season.

This year Vancouver will hold a split camp, with most of the younger
guys working at 8 Rinks in Burnaby and most of the regulars travelling
to Sweden to compete with teams such as Modo (Whom Naslund and Forsberg
once played for). This is also the town of our beloved Sedins, who will
actually face off with their old Team Modo. Wish I could be there to
watch, here is a list of players that will be going to Sweden, and the
players that will stay in Vancouver. Please contact me if any readers
are able to watch any games in Sweden, and are willing to contribute to

Blues Win First Game at Prospect Camp

by Jessica Haskin
on

Traverse City, Michigan

It might have taken a little while to score a goal but it was a fast
paced game with some battling along the boards. About four minutes into
the game Gene Chiarello dove for the puck, sliding out behind the goal
line to the right of his net, but missed the puck. The defense was able
to clear the puck off to the side just barely giving Chiarello time to
get back and make the next save, and get a much needed whistle. Two
seconds after they dropped the puck to resume play Graham Belak and
Trevor Ettinger dropped the gloves, Ettinger was on top when the Ref’s
pulled them apart. They both received 5 minute majors for fighting. A
few minutes later Chiarello stoned Hutchins. Finally 11 minutes into
the game Brad Moran put a figure on the scoreboard, giving Columbus the
first goal. Columbus took a penalty 2 minutes into the second period
and St. Louis capitalized on it. Shawn Chambers put the St. Louis Blues
on the board. At 9:06 of the second Brett Lutes was called for
cross-checking. A minute later Columbus made their mid-game goalie
change replacing Chiarello with Jomar Cruz. Less than 40 seconds later
St. Louis scored a shorthanded, Mamane getting his second of the night.
St. Louis scored once more at 9:10 of the third period, this time Dale
Clarke sending the puck past Cruz. Stephen Wagner made several great
saves protecting St. Louis’ lead. While Wagner and the St. Louis Blues Read more»

Rookie Invitees looking for contract

by pbadmin
on
If history is any indication, then Lance Galbraith and Ben Ondrus can look forward to a bright future. Last year, the Maple Leafs invited left winger Jacques Lariviere and goaltender Sebastien Centomo to their Rookie Camp as free agents. Lariviere had 22 PIMs in 3 Rookie Tournament games, while Centomo played very well as the #2 goaltender behind Vladimir Kulikov. Both youngsters were signed to contracts with the Leafs at the conclusion of the Rookie Tournament. The good fortune didn’t end there for either one of them.

Centomo began the year as Rouyn-Noranda’s backup goaltender, but by the end of the season he had nailed down the number one job. Centomo had 24 wins which ranked 6th in the QMJHL and a 3.48 GAA which was 10th in the league. Centomo’s last year of junior competition will be a treat for Leafs fans to monitor. Lariviere, who had already spent two seasons with Moncton, became the resident enforcer for Rimouski and wound up winning the Memorial Cup. Lariviere had a career year amassing 309 PIM with 12 goals and 24 assist in 61 games. Leafs fans will be able to follow Lariviere in St. John’s this year where he will be a key component in Lou Crawford’s security team assigned the task of protecting the Leafs top young prospects.

Rangers’ Future: Goaltending – Part 1

by Brandon LeBourveau
on
The best part about the Rangers future is that they are very deep in
solid goaltending prospects, possibly the deepest team in the league. The
Rangers have done some excellent scouting the past few seasons, pick up
goaltending gems such as Johan Holmqvist in the 7th Round of the ’97 Entry
Draft and Vitali Yeremeyev in the 11th Round of the ’94 Entry Draft. Let’s
take a look at some of the Rangers goalie prospects, where they should play
this upcoming season, and what type of future they have.

Name: Johan Holmqvist

Position: Goalie

Catches: Left

Height: 6-01

Weight: 200 lbs

Birthdate: May 24, 1978

Hometown: Tolfta, Sweden

Acquired: Draft 1999, 7th Round

Holmqvist, 22, is the Rangers top goalie prospect in the organization. He
has been the best goaltender in Sweden, and possibly could be the best goalie
to ever come from Sweden, and that means he could be better than Edmonton
Oilers all-star Tommy Salo. Holmqvist recently signed a contract with the
Rangers, and will be at both the rookie camp in Kitchener and the big
training camp in Burlington, Vermont. Holmqvist has the potential to be the
best goaltender in the NHL in a few years. If he plays well enough in
training camp, he could beat Kirk McLean for the Rangers back-up position. If Read more»
