History

2009-10: Rogalski was the leading scorer among Sarnia defensemen with 6 goals and 23 assists in 66 games. He was a -38 plus/minus as the Sting had the OHL's worst record. Rogalski was ranked 158th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings and was selected by Pittsburgh in the sixth round (152nd overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft. 

2010-11: Rogalski played 63 games for Sarnia in his fourth season with the club. He was -14 as the Sting moved up to fourth in the West; though they again missed the OHL playoffs. Rogalski led Sarnia defensemen in scoring with 7 goals and 25 assists.

2010-11: As a fourth year player in the CHL, Rogalski took a great leap in his progress, cutting his plus-minus over half to minus-14 while managing 7 goals and 25 assists in 63 games.

Talent Analysis

Rogalski possesses good size at 6'1 195 pounds, solid skating, strong puck-moving ability, and an above average point shot. He is however plagued by many of the same issues that affect young defensemen. While he plays physically and will battle for a loose puck in the corners, he does not fully utilize his large frame to his advantage. He also needs to generate more offense from his own end through both shooting the puck more and making better decisions distributing it. He is a fast skater, something that is noticeable every time he touches the ice, but needs to be more judicious with his skating.

Women’s Hockey – The Last of the Amateurs

by Jeff Bromley
on
I’ll admit I approached it with cautious optimism. Women’s hockey, the Canadian national team against Team Sweden. Being a servant of the great Canadian game, men’s hockey is what I follow. It’s what I write about, criticize, celebrate and lament. Women’s hockey was, up until this point, still a novelty to me. The best comparison to the men’s level would be about Midget AAA I was told. That would be my first mistake over the past few days as I prepared to take in the Cranbrook Regional Hospital Foundation – sponsored Canada vs. Sweden Women’s Hockey game this past week.

The first thing I learned outright is that is it completely unfair to categorize women’s hockey in relation to its gender sibling. The difference’s between the men’s game and the women’s are many. Not the least of which are the obvious – size and physicality of the game. But that’s not the glaring difference that it’s made out to be. Once you start to watch these girls play you notice how they play the actual game with the puck. By not having the physicality of the Men’s game, the Women’s game contain’s the subtle nuances of the game in its purest form. Razor-sharp stick-handling, tape to tape passes and more dipsy-doodles in one game than I’ve seen in a few years. To clarify, I still advocate the men’s style of hockey. Give me a bone-crushing hit or a bout of fisticuffs anytime. But the women’s style of play probably exudes the actual skills of hockey on a more frequent basis and in all honesty, it was a treat to watch.

The Adler Mannheim defeat Oberhausen 9-2 to go on top of the table and especially in this game, their 19 year-old defender Denis Seidenberg plays a very good defensive and offensive part. The undisputed „player of the game“. Stats: Mannheim/DEL: 3 GP, +1

Thoroughblades, Hart Beats For Charity

by Rich Herles

Kentucky Thoroughblades fans team up with Hart’s Dry Cleaning along with
their co-sponsors WVLK-AM Radio and WKYT-TV for their Twelfth Annual Coat
Drive. This drive is to help those who are in need of warm clothing and
runs from the beginning of October until the end of January each year.. All
that people had to do was drop off coats that they had out grown or no
longer used to Hart’s Dry Cleaning. The cleaners would clean them and turn
them over to the Salvation Army and any organization that needs them at no
cost. The quantity of coats that are turned in has grown to 6,000 coats a
year.

This is the second year that the Kentucky Thoroughblades Charities has
chosen to get behind this coat drive. Every game prior to Thanksgiving an
announcement asking fans to help those who are less fortunate by donating
their old coats was made and fans were told that on game nights they could
bring coats to the game and drop them of there.

That plea didn’t fall on deaf ears. One season ticket holder who is also a
preschool teacher brought that plea back to her students and their parents.
Beckey Herles told it this way. “Our House Pre-School in Nicholasville
(Kentucky) has about 120 students. Every year we have a food drive that the
school donates to a local church to be handed out to the needy, but I wanted
my class to do something as a class project. When the Coat Drive came up I
brought it to my class and they were excited to do it.” Miss Beckey, as
she’s referred to by her students, started gathering the coats that students
