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.

Flyers Prospect Report

by Bill Meltzer
on

1. Maxime Ouellet:

1999 First rounder was the best goalie in the QMJHL this season and a
standout at the World Junior Championships. The expectations for Ouellet,
while not quite equal to the buzz that has surrounded Roberto Luongo, are
nevertheless quite lofty. Most expect him to be a good- and maybe elite-
NHL starter in the future. The Flyers plan to have him play one more
season at the junior level before promoting him.

2. Antero Niittymäki:

Finnish Elite League rookie of the year had an eye-opening rookie season
for TPS Turku, leading them to the Finnish championship. He had an up and
down World Junior Championship performance, however. Fast glove and quick
reflexes. He’d be the top goaltending prospect in many organizations, but
is stuck behind Boucher and Oullet in the Flyers organization. The Flyers
have said that he is ready for AHL play after just one SM-Liiga season.

3. Mikhail Chernov:

Seemed to take a step backward early in the season. Perhaps he was still
reeling from the tragic boating accident in Kelowna that took the life of
Dmitri Tertyshny. As the season wore on, Chernov bounced back very nicely
and had a strong second half. Can play aggressively but still sometimes
gets mesmerized by the puck. Still a bit turnover prone but improving. Good
all around abilities are starting to become refined. Also has a heavy shot Read more»

Expansion Protected List

With the expansion draft quickly approaching the Oilers are going to protect 9 forwards, 5 defenseman and Tommy Salo, which will give a few players in Hamilton a great chance at a permanent roster spot. This is the list most likely to happen due to players age and salaries and to allow space for younger players to showcase their abilities.

Washington Capitals End Of Season Prospect Report (Right Wingers)

by Jeff Charlesworth
on

Another day, another group of players to be picked apart. This time we will look at the right
wingers in the Capitals organization as we try to determine what the future holds for the Caps.

RIGHT WINGERS

Matthew Herr – Portland Pirates (AHL)

Matt spent the entire season in Portland after shuffling back and forth between the NHL and AHL
in his rookie year. He had a good offensive year -scoring 22 goals – but more importantly, he
had the time to work on rounding out his game. He will be given the opportunity to win a job in
training camp next year, and should be able to secure a third or fourth line winger spot. Matt
is an RFA this summer, but because of his limited NHL experience, he won’t get many significant
offers.


GP G A PTS PIM +/-
Portland (AHL) 77 22 21 43 51 12
AHL PLAYOFFS 4 1 1 2 4 -4

Roman Tvrdon – Spokane Chiefs (WHL)

Roman is quite possibly the biggest surprise of the season among the Capitals’ prospects. He
was a complete unknown on draft day and was assigned to Spokane to start the year. Not only did
he play outstanding two-way hockey, but he won the WHL rookie scoring race. His success is
carrying into the post-season as the Chiefs have made it to the WHL finals. Depending on the
direction the Capitals take in the off-season, Roman could get a chance to compete for a NHL job
in training camp.

Washington Capitals End Of Season Prospect Report (Left Wingers)

Today, I continue my analysis of the Capitals’ prospects with a look at the left wingers. Each
day this week I will bring you my take on the Caps depth chart position-by-position.

LEFT WINGERS

Miika Elomo – Portland Pirates (AHL)

Miika finally decided to stay in North America this season after moving back and forth to
Finland the past few years. The new dedication paid off, with a fast start to the season,
leading the AHL in goals for a while and getting the call for his first NHL game. Injuries
bothered him throughout the year and caused him to miss the All-Star Game – which he had been
selected to play in – and the playoffs. Miika made enough progress this season to be considered
for an NHL job next year.

GP G A PTS PIM +/-
Portland (AHL) 59 21 14 35 48 -9
Washington (NHL) 2 0 1 1 2 1

Jeff Toms – Portland Pirates (AHL)

Jeff continued his act of Jekyll & Hyde this season, showing flashes of brilliance, but
disappearing just when you thought he had turned it around. He bounced back and forth between
Portland and Washington, putting up big numbers in the AHL but struggling when called up to D.C.
With the Capitals starting to amass depth at the forward positions, Jeff is slipping further and
further away from a full-time NHL job. He will be a free agent in the off-season, and may get Read more»

Mighty Ducks Season in Review

by Martin Dittman
on

The Mighty Ducks thought this was the year they were gonna become
contenders rather than the standard pretenders. As usual, the team’s high
hopes were dashed by mid-season and the Ducks will have to look to the
future again to become contenders.

The year was full of disappointments. From Maxim Balmochnykh’s
suspension to the firing of Cincinnati coach Moe Mantha, 2000-01 is surely
to be a year of transition for the Mighty Ducks organization. The future
still looks bright as several of their younger players did step up to have
productive seasons but the lights have dimmed. For each player who had a
successful season, another was a disappointment. Just another year in
Duckville.

REPORT CARDS

Jorgen Jonsson – Forward

Grade – Inc.
2000-01 Status – Back to Europe?

Comments:
Jorgen Jonsson had a productive first year in the NHL only to see it fall
apart once he joined Anaheim. On Long Island, Jonsson was a force, and
often the top player for the lowly Isles. With Anaheim, he was invisible
and struggled to get the ice time he needed so badly. The year is an
incomplete from an Anaheim standpoint although an A is in order for his work
with the Isles.

Next year is where the questions pop up. Jonsson has been considering a
trip back to Europe. The Swedish born Jonsson didn’t enjoy Long Island and
had he stayed there, he proabably would be in Sweden next year for sure. Read more»
