History

2008-09: Rogalski skated in all 68 games for Sarnia in his second OHL season. He scored 2 goals with 11 assists and was -8 with 40 PMs as the Sting finished fourth in the West Division. In five playoff games he was scoreless and -2 with 4 PMs.

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.

#1 Strength- Vision and creativity.
#1 Weakness- Size.
Playing with Rouyn-Noranda, the QMJHL’s top offensive team, Ribeiro was on fire the entire season. He averaged 2.42 points per game and won the CHL scoring race by an astonishing 32 points. His +52 was a product of his great offensive skills, while his 8 short handed goals testified to his intelligence and ability to create offense in almost any situation. Which is why he was named the QMJHL’s offensive player of the week 3 times. His penalty minutes have more than doubled compared to last year, an indication that he drew much more attention from his opponents, but did not back down.

Ribeiro finished the season with his 100th assist in a 6-2 win over Val D’or.(end of regular season)

Projection at NHL level- Second line center.
Current Stock Status- On the rise.

The Surprising Sharks Trio

by pbadmin

Last year, the rookie trio of Patrick Marleau, Andrei Zyuzin and Marco Sturm raised a lot of eyebrows. Marleau was/is thought of as one of the best young centers in the league, Zyuzin was coming along on defense, and Sturm surprised everyone with his exceptional play. This article however, will cover another trio of rookies; none of who were first round picks, in fact, the highest was chosen in the 6th round, and two were never drafted… I am of course speaking of forward Alexander Korolyuk, and defensemen Shawn Heins and Andy Sutton. (Note: Scott Hannan played in 5 games for the Sharks, but was sent to his Junior club in Kelowna. I will not include him in this report, since he is not available for the Sharks at the current time.)

Canucks’ Last Round (Canucks won 4-0): Camrose 0 at Canucks 5; Canucks 4 at Camrose 3; Camrose 1 at Canucks 3; Canucks 5 at Camrose 1

Olds players to watch: F Dana Lattery had 69 points and 224 PIM in 48 games, F Ryan Melbourne and F Joel MacAuley were 2-3 in team scoring but only combined for 12 PIM in 123 games. However, although Lattery has been a premiere performer in the playoffs thus far – leading the league with 13 points – Melbourne and MacAuley have been relatively quiet with nine and six points respectively. Two players who have done very well this post-season are Colen Pappas (10 points) and Greg Davis (7 goals).

Fort Saskatchewan 1 at Lloydminster 4 (Blazers win 4-3)
The Lloydminster Blazers came back from being down 3-2 in the AJHL best-of-seven quarterfinal to beat the Fort Saskatchewan Traders 4-3. On this night, home ice advantage would come in to play as almost 2000 fans cheered the home side on to victory.
Lloydminster’s Travis Barnes opened the scoring with four minutes remaining in the first period as he took a Mark Hallam pass and netted his second of the playoffs. Fort Saskatchewan’s Nick Boucher has been phenomenal throughout the series and was again in the first period tonight stopping 17 of 18.

With about four minutes left in the second period, Hallam scored one of his own – his third of the post-season – assisted by Paul Esdale to give the Blazers a more-comfortable 2-0 lead. Lloyd blew it wide open with just over a minute left as Barnes scores his second of the game, third of the playoffs to give his club a commanding 3-0 lead. Hallam assisted on the goal, his third point of the game. Boucher was very good again this period, stopping 13 shots.

Early on in the final frame Trevor Baker gave the Traders some life as he made the score 3-1. This would be Ray Fraser’s period to shine, however, as the Lloydminster goaltender stopped 14 of 15 shots directed at him. Mark Hallam scored a powerplay goal with about nine minutes remaining to ice the game and 4-1 was how it would end.

Lloydminster 4 at Fort Saskatchewan 1
The Lloydminster Blazers will live to see another day as the stage was set for Game Seven Thursday in Lloydminster.
Paul Esdale opened the scoring for the Blazers with 34 seconds remaining in the first period. Jamie Weiss and John Davidson assisted the goal. Lloydminster’s netminder Ray Fraser stopped 11 Fort Saskatchewan shots in the period.

In the second, the Blazers put an immense amount of pressure on the Traders’ end. They ended up with 17 shots on Fort Sask goaltender Nick Boucher but were only able to dent the twine once. Scott Pratt scored his team-leading fifth of the playoffs to make it 2-0 Blazers.

In the third period, Kyle Werner extended that lead to 3-0 11 minutes in and Brandon Denham scored his first of the playoffs – on the powerplay – with two minutes remaining to ice the game.

Fort Saskatchewan’s Ryan Campbell spoiled Fraser’s shutout bid by scoring with 23 seconds left, but that was all the 1,414 fans at Jubilee Rec Centre in Fort Saskatchewan would have to cheer about on this night.
