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.

Czech Republic Under-16 team at Four Nations Tournament

by Robert Neuhauser
on
The Czech Under-16 team underwent its first major tournament at the european junior stage.

After they met teams Finland, Switzerland and Slovakia three times, they headed to Yaroslavl
to compete against Sweden, Finland and Russia. It’s evident that the Czech miracle still
works, this small country in the center of Europe still produces top hockey talent. Among
those born 1985 two guys are a bit ahead of the others. The first is Rostislav Olesz of HC
Vitkovice, not eligible until the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, but already 6’0” 170 lbs., who
played two games in the Czech Elite League this season! Olesz needed just three minutes to
score his first point, an assist, in his first Extraleague game. Then he appeared in one more
game, but most important he is a star for the juniors of Vitkovice. Besides, he is still
eligible to play in the midget league next season! Olesz is really a big talent, big, creative
forward with an excellent scoring touch and vision, great pair of hands and hockey sense. He
just has to learn how to play without the puck and how to be more responsible defensively. But definitely a top prospect.

The other guy is Vojtech Polak, a native of Decin, Czech Republic. Polak is nearly the same
rocket talent as Olesz, just like him he plays for the Under-16 team the second season,
played sparingly with the junior team of HC Becherovka Karlovy Vary last season and posted
great numbers in the midget and junior league this season. After the tournament he was
awarded with his biggest success till now, his first game in the Extraleague. Read more»

Rangers Youth Movement?

by Evan Andriopoulos
on
As the executioner readies his trigger finger the to end the Rangers playoff possibilities there is some brightness shining through this darkness called Year 2000-01.

As we watch Graves, Kamensky,LaCroix, Lefebrve toil up and down the ice like Jarri Kurri did in his last pathetic season one has to look to next year and what sun is shining in.

As Detroit, St.Louis and San Jose…the hockey vultures fly over the carcass of the Rangers players like Graves and Lefebrve could be on their way out. St.Louis who just lost Chris Pronger may have changed again it’s designs on what they need… Adam Graves can help but he is older, slower and less productive this season…which is not a good mix for the ever so fast and fluent Blues… Sylvain Lefebrve can be a nice addition to help anchoring the defense. Val Kamensky…who we are just waiting to come up lame again may find a new spot in Vancouver… Eric LaCroix would like nice in Dallas, Detroit and San Jose… what the Rangers would receive would be pieces of the future…draft picks, prospects and pieces to retool the Hartford Wolf Pack for their run to defend the AHL title.

While Manny Malhotra(limited ice), Jeff Toms(who looks good in his 4 mins a game), Dale Purinton (toughness) and Tony Tuzzolino(nice corner work) try to jump start the engine…only Malhotra is a true solid prospect for the future and one has to wonder what the treatment via Ron Low has done for him. In Hartford Mike Mottau continues to play better…he recently scored his 9th of the season and he is playing a more discipli Read more»
