Red Wings Report: NHL and AHL “youngsters”

I have had some questions about why I`m not mentioning players like Jason Williams, Yuri Butsayev and so on in my articles. Therefore, here is an update on “all youngsters” who are playing with the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks and Detroit Red Wings.

Name: Jiri Fischer

Position: D
Born: 1980
Height: 6-5
Weight: 230
NHL Stats: 65 games 1 goals 7 assists 8 points 61 pim

Czech giant defenseman Jiri Fischer is improving and getting more ice time for every game that passes. He is playing great right now, logging on a bit over 20 minutes a game while playing a strong defensive game. He has been a regular on the second penalty killing unit all year long which has helped his development. The only minus is that he is not putting up offensive numbers, mainly due to the lack of PP time. I think that Mr. Bowman should give this kid some PP time to develop his offensive game and become more of a two-way defenseman.

Future: Jiri Fischer has a bright future ahead of him in Detroit. If he continues to develop at this pace he should become the best defenseman and the corner stone on the team in 4-5 years. With some PP time he could be a very good two-way defenseman in the NHL.

Name: Pavel Datsyuk

Position: C
Born: 1978
Height: 5-10

Larrivée playing for a contract

by Chris Boucher
on
The June 1st deadline to sign CHL players drafted in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft is fast approaching. The Montréal Canadiens head into this year’s deadline with only two players directly affected by the previously mentioned cut-off date.

Josef Balej (3rd round, 78th overall), and Christian Larrivée (4th round, 114th overall) will need to be signed, otherwise the Habs risk losing their NHL rights. Balej is a speedy right winger playing with the WHL’s Portland Winter Hawks, while the lanky Larrivée currently toils for the QMJHL’s Chicoutimi Saguenéens.

Chicoutimi drafted Larrivée third overall in the 1999 QMJHL draft. The Gaspé native had just come off an impressive rookie season with Jonquiere in the Québec Midget AAA league. In 42 games Larrivée managed 62 points (26-36-62) to go along with 10 minutes in penalties.

The 6’3″, 195-lbs forward enjoyed a moderately successful QMJHL rookie season (99-00), finishing with 23 points (8-15-23) through 69 games. That said, it was his size, and offensive potential that initially drew Habs’ scouts to the then center. He’s a left-handed shot who protects the puck well. He has a quick release, rather than an overtly powerful shot.

Claude Ruel, who’s still involved in the Habs’ player development system once told Larrivée that he uses his size and speed well, and must continue to shoot as often as possible. “Claude Ruel has a great eye for what happens on the ice,” Larrivée told Chicoutimi’s Le Quotidien. “I listen to him as often as possible. He knows the game so well. He’s there to he Read more»

ICE win keeps club in pennant hunt

by Jeff Bromley

At the beginning of Tuesday night’s game at home against the Vancouver Giants the Kootenay were just three points back of the B.C. Division leading

Kamloops Blazers with three games to play in the regular season. At the end of the night Kootenay was just a point back of the Blazers with only two games left for each. Just over a week ago the Blazers were nine points up on the ICE, had a game in hand and had the division pennant all but hanging in the rafters of SportMart Place.

What a difference a week makes.

While the Blazers were in the process of losing their fourth straight to a Calgary Hitmen club that has now clinched a playoff spot in the WHL’s Central Division, the Kootenay ICE were having difficulty dispensing a pesky Vancouver Giant club that didn’t want to go away quietly. For the Giants the game was played purely for points in the pride column. Forced out of the playoff picture by a loss against the Seattle Thunderbirds last Friday, players on the coastal expansion squad were playing for jobs on the club next fall. That fact didn’t deter the club from being a thorn in the side of the ICE all night long. Being down by score of 2-0 and 4-1 and Kootenay poised to put them away for good, the Giants made things interesting and were down by only a 4-3 count with less than two minutes to play in the third frame before Kootenay put it out of reach with a 6-3 verdict on goals that included a fade-away lob-shot by Cole Fischer that fooled Giant netminder Jordan McLaughlin and an empty-net marker by Nigel Dawes.
