Rangers Prospect Analysis: Jeff Ulmer

by Evan Andriopoulos
on
Is Ulmer another Rangers smallish centerman in the likes of Christian Dube and Marc Savard or is he like Mike York or Mike Rogers?

COUNTRY: Canada
SHOOTS: Right
HEIGHT: 5.11
WEIGHT: 185 lbs.
BORN: 04/27/77
Wilcox, Saskatchewan, Canada
DRAFTED: Not Selected
HOW ACQUIRED: Free agent signee on 07/27/00
LAST CLUB: Houston (IHL), Canadian National (Intl.)

Jeff Ulmer is another product of the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux where he played from 1995-1999. During the 1999-2000 season with the Canadian National Team he registered 14 goals and 39 points in 48 games around the globe, toiling against such teams as Norway, Britain and Slovakia. A late season signee of the IHL Houston Aeros he was coached by newly signed Rangers boss Ron Low. Low mentioned that the reason the Rangers signed the smallish center was that he was a hard worker who earns everything he gets.

Ulmer posted solid US Collegiate Numbers at North Dakota totaling 39 goals and 46 assists in 135 games in four seasons.

All signs point to Ulmer impressing at Rangers camp early next month and may suprise a few with his work ethic that will most likely see him at Hartford (AHL) but if injuries strike Tim Taylor as they do… Ulmer may have a “cup of coffee” with the Rangers before next season is over. He can also bring the Rangers a breath of fresh air as he plays much bigger than he is…

Habs’ Development Camp (Day 7)

by Chris Boucher
on
André Savard was the only instructor on the ice, as the Habs’ Prospects camp continued Wednesday. Groin problems remain the injury of choice for many of the players, as Éric Chouinard became the latest in a list of seven players that have suffered some sort of groin injury during camp.
Chouinard however was the first player on the ice, testing out the groin injury he suffered in Tuesday’s on-ice session. He was skating quite gingerly, and ended up leaving the ice just 30 minutes into practice. Alexander Buturlin also seemed to suffer an injury during today’s practice. At one point, while the rest of the players continued the drill, he skated off to the corner in order to do some stretching exercises.
Add Ron Hainsey to the list of missing. Hainsey was not on the ice Wednesday morning, as he’s now returned to school. Fellow first-rounder Marcel Hossa, and ninth-rounder Jerome Marois, continue to receive treatment for their injuries. There was however, some good news on the injury front, as Dusty Jamieson made his first on-ice appearance of the year. Jamieson showed no signs of his injury. In fact, he demonstrated good speed, and some solid puck-handling skills.
Evan Lindsay also returned to the ice, as did Jean-Francois Houle. Lindsay didn’t look very comfortable on the ice. He seemed to favour his groin, hesitating to drop down to his knees. Preferring instead to remain on his feet, relying mostly on his hands and legs to stop shots. Read more»

Islanders announce signing of RW sniper Juraj Kolnik and other team notes

by Bill Bennett
on

Last season with the Rimouski Oceanic of the Quebec League, the 19-year old right wing posted 53 goals and 106 points in just 47 games. Kolnik also notched 15 goals and 37 points for the Quebec League Champions in 18 postseason games.

His two year junior totals produced 95 goals in 109 career games. His linemate Brad Richards was signed to a three year deal with Tampa Bay earlier this summer.

Kolnik is likely to spend a year in the Islanders minor league affiliate in Lowell because the Isles have few spots open on the teams depth chart at right wing with Maruisz Czerkwski and Mark Parrish on the first two lines, Dave Scatchard, Bill Muckalt, or Mats Lindgren as right wing on the third line, and Steve Webb as the 4th line right wing. Mike Stapleton and Claude La Pointe will likely be on the teams 4th line with Webb.

As Al Arbour once said about another right wing named Mike Bossy, ” Give me the homerun hitter ”

In Juraj Kolnik the Islanders have got one.

Taylor Pyatt from all indications is ready to join the Islanders and is likely to be the rookie forward who joins the team this year.

Dimitri Nabakov and former Hobey Baker winner Jason Krog, who looked very good after going to Providence after a poor start at Lowell will also get a chance to make the team so its going to be very competitive.

In the end of July, national head coach Jan Filc called a “small” training camp of players considered as nominees for national team on Olympic games 2002 in Sault Lake City. He invited around 50 players playing in the NHL, AHL, IHL and in the European leagues. Only four of invited players apologized their absence – Svehla, Droppa, Vaic and Hlinka. Other players took part on this camp. The climax of this camp was exhibition game “America” versus “Europe”, which was playing in August 4th in Bratislava.

America won that game 12 : 7 when Satan (3 + 2) and Bondra (2 + 3) on one side and Pardavy (3 + 0) on the other one, were scoring stars. It was a great show for all hockey fans. By the way the best skater in speed competition was Lubo Visnovsky followed by Peter Bartos, Jaro Obsut and Peter Bondra.
