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.

Jose Theodore G 5-10 180 22 D-Mtl94(2/44)

98-99 Stats 19 9 9 1 2.44 .927 (AHL)
98-99 Stats 13 3 10 0 3.35 .887 (NHL)

#1 Strength- Winner’s attitude.
#1 Weakness- Inconsistency.
With the trade of Thibeault and the arrival of Hackett, Theodore was surprised and angered by his demotion to Fredericton. The main reason for his demotion was his inconsistent play. He has recently come to accept his demotion and is playing exceptionally well. He was just named the AHL’s player of the week and is proving himself too good for the AHL. Fredericton will go as far in the playoffs as Theodore (and his reputation as a good pressure goaltender) takes them.

Theodore finished the week a dismal 0-3, with a GAA of 3.66. he stopped 25 shots in a 3-1 loss to Rochester, stopped 31 shots in a 3-1 loss to Springfield, did not play in a 3-3 tie with Philadelphia, and stopped 23 shots in a 5-4 loss to Providence.(Week ending 3/7/99)

Projection for NHL Level- Star.
Current stock status- Stagnant.

Calgary Royals 7 at Olds 8 (OT)
The Olds Grizzlys pulled off a big upset for the second night in a row as they increased their lead in the best-of-seven quarterfinal to two games in yet another high scoring match-up.
Oddly enough, in this game where fifteen goals were ultimately scored, there was no scoring in the first period. It didn’t take Moose Jaw prospect and 2000 draft eligible Ben Knopp long to score in the second, however, as he scored a powerplay goal 21 seconds into the period. The Grizzlys’ David Erickson then scored his first goal of the postseason on the powerplay to tie the game up. The Royals then added to quick tallys – from Ryan Joseph and David Evans – to take a 3-1 lead. Olds would tie it up before the end of the period, however, as Greg Davis and Matt Brunner scored. The goal by Davis was two minutes after the Royals moved in front by two and the goal by Brunner was two minutes later.

AJHL Quarter-Final Preview

The AJHL Playoffs are set to kick off on Friday with the quarterfinals.
The Grande Prairie Storm and the Camrose Kodiaks swept their
best-of-three mini-series respectively to earn the right to face the
division leader in the next round. The Bonnyville Pontiacs were the
first team to get eliminated. It took them until the last five minutes
of the last game in the regular season to score the goal that put them
into the playoffs but once they got their it seemed they had very little
spark left. Having to travel all the way to Grande Prairie from St.
Albert – the site of their last game – was a big factor in them losing
to the Storm 6-3 in Game One.

The Storm jumped on Bonnyville late in the first but poured it on from
there. 19-year-old Lane Letendre scored with 42 seconds left in the
first period. The Storm then broke out to a 3-0 lead. Bonnyville made it
3-2 before the Storm scored a few more times to put it away.

In Game Two, Grande Prairie broke out to a 3-0 lead again by the first
minute of the second period. Bonnyville again scored two quick goals to
close the gap, but the Storm scored again in the third period and never
looked back. It was the second game in a row that all-star Tyson Read more»

2000 Draft Profiles from the OHL (PART 2 of 2)

by pbadmin

Hockey will begin a new era next year and what better way to bring in a new millenium
than with a fresh young group of talented players, especially from the OHL. The OHL is
represented very strongly in the 2000 draft. The OHL has a mix of fine young defenseman to go
along with some outstanding forwards. Here is a profile on the top youngsters from the OHL
looking to make it big in the 2000 NHL draft.


Height/Weight: 6’0 180

Position: Defence

Birthdate: February 9, 1982
Peterborough, Ontario

Current stats: 6 points in 52 games in Windsor

  • 42 points in 51 games with Peterborough Bantams

    HF Comments: Dan Growden represents speed in the 2000 draft. This offensive minded defenceman was
    selected by Windsor 5th overall in 1998 and is yet to prove himself. He logs an incredible
    amount of playing time and slowly he is becoming more comfortable in the league. His defensive
    game is very poor and his inability to clear corners and in front of the net has left the Spits
    picking the puck out of the back of the net. He loves to jump into the rush and in some
    occasions is used up front on the penalty kill. A willing learner who is gradually learning
    the defensive game in the OHL. His major strength by far is his mobility and his ability to clear
