Former Lake Superior star shines as sturdy two-way player

by Derek Berry
on
Before he got into the National Hockey League he was told that he
should not worry about becoming a goal-scorer. “That was a real
eye-opener,” says Detroit native Rob Valicevic, of the talk given to him
early on by his Houston Aeros coach. “I’ll never forget that talk.”

It wasn’t too tough of an adjustment for this fine two-way hockey
player from Clinton Township. He really learned how to play two ways
back in the glory days of Lake Superior State University, playing under
head coach Jeff Jackson.

“Coach Jackson used a very pro-style system,” says Valicevic. “We were
stingy and strong at lake Superior, especially on defense and we didn’t
give up a lot of shots.”

Jackson himself is pleased that his former star, a key contributor to
those LSSU national championship teams in 1992 and 1994, has found
success at the next level.

“I’m very impressed that he’s made it to the NHL,” says Jackson, very
proudly. “He has consistently improved each year and I think he’s
emerged as an excellent, consistent two-way player with the Nashville
Predators.”

When asked if his coaching style and system attributed to Valicevic’s
success up to this point, Jackson humbly dismissed those notions, saying
Valicevic has basically made himself the player that he is.

“Rob has really made himself into his own player,” says Jackson. “He’s
built his body up well and he’s always had the work ethic and
leadership.”

It’s no secret that Valicevic has worked hard for what he has earned.

IHL News

The Milwaukee Admirals, now fifth in the Eastern Conference, have a better record than the Utah Grizzlies, who are fourth in the West. If the teams finish the regular season that way the Admirals will be in the playoffs and the Grizzlies will be out. Wouldn’t that be bad news for the Manitoba Moose?

If the current standings are carried through to the end of the regular season the Admirals will face the Moose, who are in first place in the West, to open the playoffs. Manitoba might be better off finishing second. The Moose, who have never won anything (conference or league title), have an 0-3-2 record against Milwaukee.


BEST STATS:
The Chicago Wolves, defending Turner Cup champions, are 20-7-4 since the All-Star break. Based on that record they’re the hottest team in the league now. The Wolves, Milwaukee Admirals and Cleveland Lumberjacks are the only teams with 20 wins since the All-Star break.
Mark Beaufait of the Orlando Solar Bears had three multiple-point games in three days last weekend. He accumulated seven points in the process.

Coach Ron Smith recorded his sixth consecutive 40-win season with the Cincinnati Cyclones. That gives him the best record among active IHL coaches at 262-169-53.
The Orlando Solar Bears are 8-0-2 vs. the Cleveland Lumberjacks this season.

The Milwaukee Admirals are 8-1-3 in their last 12 road games and 11-4-3 in their last 18. If they earn the last Western Conference playoff spot they could sail to the Turner Cup finals. Milwaukee has a winning record against every team in the West.
