A good sized center with an above-average skill-set, Bernhardt can provide some offense and play an energetic two-way game.

Future

Has the talent to be a decent point-producer in the minors but is best suited as a two-way, grinding forward.

The couple missing pieces

by pbadmin
on
Over the season and especially in the playoff’s it became apparent that a little tinkering is needed to the roster. Veteren experience and reliability seems to be the new mantra coming out of the front office in Edmonton but not at the expenses of dismantling the core group. Finding a defenseman and a winger whom both have leadership qualities and Stanley Cup experience will weigh heavily on the minds of Kevin Lowe and his staff. Around draft day in June seems the most likely time a decision will be made since one way or another the Doug Weight contract scenerio will have been played out. The funds left over either way will determine who they can obtain to fill those roles and if the ownership group would be willing to spend an extra million or two to make it all come together.

Down the road the Calgary Flames spent more on thier rosters this season and perhaps they didn’t get the results they wanted, but if the ownership group and the fans and have a little give and take it could be accomplished. If in Edmonton the season tickets could be in the 16,000 area with only 1,100 to spare they could sell out 30-35 games a year the funds could be available. That essentially with the 5% increase in tickets prices could be allocated in signing Doug Weight to a three year contract and adding the two veterens needed.

Now barring if the money is available whom would be considered a good candidates for the veteren positions and what would be the cost. Now if someone were to mull over the current rosters in the NHL to see what is available they may find that Edmon Read more»

BCHL Players to watch in 2002

by Glenn Fugate
on

Nathan Schwartzbauer: This Quesnel Millionaire defenseman is one of the biggest in the league at 6’5 210 lbs. Schwartzbauer (82) is reputed to be the fastest skater on the Mills up and down the ice. For a player this size that`s not a easy task. If this big d-man can work on his lateral movement and anticipation he should be a big influence on the Millionaires and the BCHL next year. This Alaskan has alot of size and teams are looking for that on defense. Look for Nathan to take a step up if the rest of his game does. Players will not find it pleasant in front of the Millionaires net next season, when Nathan is on the ice.


Alex Nikiforuk:
Alex plays right wing for the Burnaby Bulldogs of the BCHL. Not many rookies can rack up over a point a game in the BCHL but this native of Kelowna did. Not big at 5’8 165 Alex relies more on speed and smarts to make his game talk. Nikiforuk( 83) was one of the top point getters on Burnaby this season and should have a even bigger role next season. As in most BCHLers a scholarship is his goal and this should not be a problem. A season near 100 points could be in the future for this smart player.


Rod Pelley:
Rod Pelley had a great first year in the BCHL. This player at only 16 years old played a regular shift on the Prince George Spruce Kings. Pelley (84) is listed by the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL and will have to make the decision whether to play in the Dub or pursue a scholarship. This kid from Kitimat B.C. is a strong skater and has pretty good size for a 16-year-old at 6’0 180. Rod played wel Read more»

Bulls Season Ended By 67′s

by Bill Thompson

The Bulls were ousted in the 6th game by the 67’s in a hard fought series, but need not hang their heads, they had an excellent year. Beating everyone’s expectations in taking the division title, this group of guys showed character and skill. After taking the Frontenacs down in 4 games the post-season looked promising, but it would be the 67’s year to beat out the Bulls after a few years of domination by Belleville.

Ottawa wore the Bulls down, who were visibly exhausted in the 5th game even though they managed to win it 4-3. The fourth game overtime loss in Ottawa after leading with 20 seconds to go in the 3rd coupled with a bout of the flu than was passed through the team, emotionally and physically drained the guys and Ottawa was able to close out the series with a 7-2 win in the Civic Centre.

Lance Galbraith led the way offensively for Ottawa and was his usual pesky self. In my opinion Jonathan Zion was the best player on the ice for either team showing great skating and puck handling ability. The Leafs have a very good prospect in Zion. Zenon Konopka was the 67’s clutch player scoring the tying goal in the 4th game to send it to overtime. The major difference between the two teams was in net. Seamus Kotyk (Bruins) was outstanding for Ottawa while both Jan Chovan and Paulo Colaiacovo did not play well when they needed to.

The entire Bulls lineup played well in their roles until the 5th game where they were dragging their buts for the aforementioned reasons. Andre Deveaux really picked up his game when calle Read more»

U18-Worldchampionship in Finland

Before the championship starts, the U18-nationalteam plays in two exhibitiongames in Füssen, germany, against the U18-team from the czech republic. A 3-3 draw follows a 3-2 win (Goals from Goc(2), Schauer, Danner, Barz and Triller). So, the team was in a good form for the championships, but horable news reaches the team after the second game against the czechs’: the top defenseman, Alexander Sulzer has a shoulder-injury and can’t play in the championships. Very bad news for the team, Sulzer was the rookie of the year in the third league and a possibly draft-pick in this year or the next year. But, Alex Sulzer is just 16 years old and can play at the championships next year.

Two days before the championships started, coach Jim Setters named his squad (detailly informations about every player will follow in the next days) and set following players on the recall-list: Goalies Alexander Lerchner from Kaufbeuren and Patrick Ehelechner from Mannheim (born 1984, so he will play in the U18-championships next year). Defenders Florian Horvath from Kaufbeuren, Daniel Kirchberger from Augsburg and Sebastian Osterloh from Cologne. Forwards Manfred Eichber Read more»
