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.

Sweden names WJC squad

by Peter Westermark
on
Team Sweden named the team that will compete for the finest honours in junior hockey this week and, unlike last year, a fifth place finish will be satifactory for a squad that lacks star quality and quality 1981-born players. Instead, the tournament that will take place in Moscow, Russia, could be seen as a learning experience for a number of budding stars born in 1982.

There were few surprises in the squad, one mild one is that highly touted power forward Jens Karlsson will be left home as a ”non travelling reserve.” Karlsson was considered a possible top ten overall pick in the 2001 Draft at the start of the season, but his stock may be falling as he has only seen spot duty with Frölunda in the Elitserien. Instead, his younger teammate Fredrik Sjöström has not only skated past Karlsson on the Frölunda depth chart, but also on the Team Sweden depth chart. Sjöström, a winger born in May 1983, is the youngest player on the Swedish entry and he has recorded five points in 26 Elitserien games, which can be compared to zero points in nine games for Karlsson.

Bruins well-represented at WJCs

by Shane Walsh

There will be some very exciting Bruins hockey to watch for a change after Christmas. This brand of excitement, however, will not be coming from the Fleet Center. For the first time since 1996-97, the Bruins will have decent prospect representation at the 2000-2001 World Junior Hockey Championships in Russia. Representing the Bruins will be 2000 draftees: Andy Hilbert, Brett Nowak, Lars Jonsson, and Martin Samuelsson.

Andy Hilbert was the first North American player selected by the Boston Bruins in the 2000 NHL Draft last June when they selected him in the second round. Hilbert is a two-way center that agitates opponents with his feisty style of play. He is a strong, well-balanced skater with a low center of gravity and is often compared with Chris Drury of the Colorado Avalanche. With former teammate Mike Comrie defecting to the WHL, Hilbert has stepped up to lead the Michigan Wolverine’s this season.

“With Mikey gone, we’ve really had to pick up the slack,” said Hilbert in an exclusive interview. “I’m starting to feel comfortable now and the guys have done a good job coming together. It’s really tough when you lose a guy like Mikey, but these things happen. The experience has really brought the team closer together. We’re maximizing our chances and we’ll get the opportunity to do something special if we continue to play the way we have.”

Hilbert played a checking role for the US at last year’s World Junior Hockey Championship. With his impressive early numbers with Michigan this season, he would love the opportunity to Read more»

Minnesota High School Update

by Erik Freeman
on
Here is a quick update on the Minnesota High School scene. Eden Prairie, an early season favorite must find a way to replace Gopher recruit Garrett Smaagaard, who tore his ACL during football season. Greenway of Coleraine is looking like the top team in the state during the early going. Gino Guyer-Andy Sertich-Mike Forconi form the state’s most dangerous scoring line. No one has been able to stop them yet. As one would say they are like poetry in motion. Duluth East has another solid team led by all stater Nick Licari. Other teams looking to contend include White Bear Lake, Bloomington Jefferson, and Elk River. Players to watch from those schools include Tim Hambly, Trevor Stuart, Brandon Longley, Matt Duncan, Mike Bernhagen, and Tom Gilbert.
