History

2008-09: Durocher scored 7 goals with 20 assists and 16 PIM for Gloucester in the CJHL.

2009-10: Durocher scored 15 goals with 11 assists and was -5 with 26 PIM in 66 games as a rookie with Kingston in the OHL. He scored 2 goals and was +3 with 4 PIM in the Frontenacs seven-game first round playoff series loss to Brampton.

2010-11: Durocher increased his offensive output while playing sound two-way hockey in his second season with Kingston (OHL). In 63 games he scored 14 goals with 23 assists and was -5 with 26 PMs for the Frontenacs. In five OHL playoff games he had 1 assist and was -5 with 2 PMs. Durocher was traded to the Soo Greyhounds in June 2011.

Talent Analysis

Durocher skates well at 6’3, and has the hands and skill to have a shot at the next level, but he needs to add more weight and muscle beyond his listed 183 pounds before he can be considered for the NHL. He has improved his offensive skill set somewhat, though he is still a project at this point.

Future

Durocher will play in the OHL this season, and probably the next. He is a player that projects as a bottom-line role player, but is still a few years away from contributing at the NHL level.

The Bottom Line

    As the 2001 season comes to an end for the New York Rangers, they must yet again gear up for another draft rather then a return to the post season. This however is not necessarily a bad thing as the Rangers will once again have a top ten pick. But before I get into that I would like to add that while not many rookies have played this year Ron Low and Sather are not to blame for this nor should they be.

First off Ron Low has given ice time to those who earned it. Manny Malhotra is a decent player but even I will admit at this point that he was oversold coming out of junior hockey. He wasn’t putting up great numbers in the AHL and he’ll never be a point producer at the NHL level. He figures to best be used as a third line winger who nets maybe 10 goals, 20 points and 100 PIM. It’s a harsh reality but it is true. Ron Low is giving Kloucek nearly 20 minutes a game, because Kloucek is earning it. Not to say that Malhotra deserves only 4 minutes a game but I don’t know exactly everyone is expecting to see if he does. Why is it possible that two coaches now haven’t been impressed with Malhotra? They are seeing something we don’t and perhaps we should leave it at that. Well, now that I got that out of my system I am ready to get on with the prospect talk.

    Pavel Brendl is slipping folks. His attitude is going south again and so is his game. Regardless of whether he is bored or not he isn’t helping his case this year at all. He’s been offered in the trade talks with Phoenix and don’t be too surprised if he gets traded there soon. His skill level is great but h Read more»

Rangers Update: Graduation Day!

With the new management coming in and the captain, Mark Messier, coming back to the team, everyone in New York with a pint-sized brain, including me, figured this year would be an exciting season in which the Rangers could do something big, maybe even become legitimate contenders for hockey’s prized trophy, the Stanley Cup.

Well, so far it has not gone as planned.

After a good 2 months to start the season, the losing started to pile up and the Rangers never were able to recover. Mike Richter was lost for the season with a knee injury and Theoren Fleury just recently volunteered to enter the NHL’s Drug Abuse and Behavior program, likely meaning he will not return to the ice this season. This leaves the Rangers in 10th place in the East and a near impossible chance of being able to catch Boston or Carolina for the 8th and final playoff spot. Although there has not been many, a few of the bright spots for the Blue shirts this season has got to be the improved play of rookie defensemen Tomas Kloucek and Dale Purinton.

Both Kloucek and Purinton now have surpassed the 25 games played mark, meaning this year will indeed be their rookie seasons for Rangers defensemen Tomas Kloucek and Dale Purinton. There’s not one game where I can remember seeing Tomas Kloucek (31 games played) or Dale Purinton (26 games played) not giving it their all on the ice every shift, game in and game out. That has not been something we have seen from other players on the team, and that shows that we indeed need to get some more youngsters on this team. Kloucek and Purinton both play a v Read more»
