Chabot and Khabibulin Share Award.

Goalies Frederic Chabot of the Houston Aeros and Nikolai Khabibulin of the Long Beach Ice Dogs have been selected as the recipients of the
James Gatschene Memorial Trophy. This year’s balloting ended in a deadlock between the two goaltenders. This year marks the first time two
goalies have ever shared the award, and the first time three goalies have held the top three positions after voting commenced. In total, five of the
nine vote-getters for this year’s award guarded the net for their respective team. Goaltenders have won the Gatschene Trophy four of the past six
seasons, whereas the previous 48 seasons just three netminders received the award.
Chabot, 32, is in his fourth season with the Aeros. He played in a majority of Houston’s games this season, leading all IHL goaltenders in games
played (62), wins (36), minutes played (3,695) and shootout wins (12). He was second in saves (1,498—just thirteen behind Marty Turco) and
GAA (2.13), while tied for the third position in save percentage of goaltenders playing more than 1,620 minutes (.920). Chabot’s superior play
helped the Aeros to allow the fewest goals against in the league (197). This feat earned him the James Norris Memorial Trophy, awarded annually
to the goaltender(s) having played a minimum of 25 games for the club with the fewest goals against during the regular season. Chabot finished Read more»

Plymouth Whalers drop Soo Greyhounds in five games

by Derek Berry
on
PLYMOUTH, MI-They did not want to make another bus trip to Sault Ste. Marie. The Plymouth Whalers avoided the agonizing ride by sideswiping the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, with a thrilling Game Four overtime victory on Friday night, and wrapping up the series in Game Five on Saturday night, 3-1, before a crowd of nearly 3,000 at Compuware Sports Arena in Plymouth, Michigan. The Whalers are the Western Conference Champions of the Ontario Hockey League.

The big game Friday night in Plymouth featured a Justin Williams goal for the Whalers 13:20 into overtime, propelling Plymouth into a 3-1 series lead, setting the stage for Saturday’s showdown.

Just like Game One of the series, the Greyhounds took a 1-0 lead in the first period on a goal by Cory Pecker. Not long after, the Greyhounds would lose defenseman Derek Fox on a crushing blow along the boards in the Sault Ste. Marie zone. Fox’s season ended with a separated shoulder, according to Sault Ste. Marie head coach Paul Theriault.

“It was a good, solid hit, nothing dirty about it,” said Theriault. “He’s got a pretty sore chest too.”

That wasn’t the only pain the Whalers would inflict upon the Greyhounds.

2000 NHL Draft Outlook – Top 21 OHL Prospects

by Bob Chery
on
Unlike last year when I offered up my thoughts on the 1999 NHL
Draft for this web-site, I
decided this year to focus strictly on the OHL crop.

As I meandered my way through the OHL rinks for approximately 40
games this year and watched about the same number of games on
television, the greatest impression I was left with was how stellar the crop
for the 2001 NHL Draft appears to be. The likes of Jason Spezza, Stephen
Weiss, and Mark Popovic will headline the high end. Derek Roy promises to
fuel the size versus skill debate even further. And a host of others
players too long to list here will provide the depth. Next season promises to be
very interesting and exciting.

For now of course, the task at hand is to evaluate the
draft-eligibles for the upcoming 2000 NHL Draft. Beyond the Top Six that appear to be
sure-fire 1st rounders, I have no doubts that the opinions will vary
considerably with the remaining players. With this crop of players, the old adage
of trying to project what type of player they will become five years from now
rings especially true.

What follows is my rankings for the Top 21 OHL Skaters. I have
provided their position, team, height and weight. I have also broken down
their stats into two halves, up to the New Year, and after the New Year,
plus the season’s final totals. I have also provided their playoff Read more»
