Interview with Louis Mandeville

by Aaron Vickers
on

The Halifax Mooseheads have been skating in front of their hometown crowd in the Halifax Metro Centre. Moosemaniacs have seen the offensive exploits of players like Alex Tanguay, who registered 47 goals in 51 games in 98-99. Others saw Ladislav Nagy put up 71 goals and 126 points in 63 games in that same 98-99 season. Many saw Ramzi Abid blaze onto the scene from Acadie-Bathurst, to go onto his best junior season with 158 points in 72 games. This season, the fans of the Halifax Mooseheads are seeing a different breed of potential superstar in the making; Louis Mandeville.

Mandeville burst onto the scene during the 2000-2001 season when his current junior team, the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, dealt him to the Mooseheads. Since that trade, his game has shown nothing but improvement. He completed the season with 22 points in 28 games for Halifax, after registering only 17 points in 42 games with the Huskies. But the story of Louis Mandeville starts much earlier than that.

After a hugely successful year with Col. Lemoyne in Midget, Louis realized that he could have a shot at the NHL somewhere down the road.

“Probably in Midget AAA I had a really good season,” said Louis, “People were talkin’ about me so I thought about it a bit at that time.”

People continued to talk as Mandeville made the jump for Midget hockey into Major Junior with Rouyn-Noranda, however, deciding between Major Junior and College hockey was one that Mandeville was forced to ponder.

Mandeville could have either taken the Major Junior route, or through t Read more»

German Draftee Situation, Part 2

by Oliver Janz

Change of team = change of mind

Change of team = change of mind?

It’s time to say goodbye to Munich for Christoph Schubert. The 20 year old defender from the Munich Barons is willing to leave his hometown for another DEL team. Rumors have been present for quite some time. While being in Salt Lake City, Schubert finally announced his deal with his new team in an interview with the German broadcaster ‘Premiere World’. The Nuremberg Ice Tigers will be the team boasting Schubert in their line-up. Schubert, a Senators prospect, and Ice Tigers’ general manager Otto Sykora reached an agreement. Schubert will sign a two year contract starting next season. What’s the reason for leaving the Barons for the Ice Tigers? Both teams are comparable in talent and experience and both are Top 4 teams in the DEL. His playing time should theoretically be about the same as in Munich.

“I’ll try everything to reach the NHL” and he thought that a change of teams would help him to get more experience. That’s his official statement. However, it has been a curious season for Christoph Schubert. Barons’ General Manager Max Fedra told the media at the beginning of the season that “Schubert doesn’t play like a NHLer, but he thinks he’s one of them.” Fedra talked about his playing style and his arrogance. National coach Hans Zach agreed with him. A few days after that, Fedra and Read more»

Around the Kings System

by Tony Calfo
on

Some notes, news and observations about the Kings system:

The Los Angeles Kings have to be pleased with the return to form of Jarslov Bednar. In his first game back in the NHL on Monday he showed alot of spunk. He played the body all night, made some crisp passes and had several scoring opportunities on a line with Jason Allison and Adam Deadmarsh. He is a nice fit with those two and could be a key cog if the Kings are unable to land a top six winger.

It seems like a good year to have a rebound as a defenseman in the Kings system. In the collegiate ranks, Jason Crain has had a great season after struggling last year. Crain has developed into a leader and shown some offense this year. Crain has 10 points and is a +7 in 35 games- solid numbers in the college game. Richard Seeley and Joe Rullier have developed their defensive games in Manchester and while neither may be the offensive prospects once hope for, you can’t get enough big, physical defensemen. The best comeback is by Joe Corvo. Once out of hockey and the King’s plans, Corvo is Manchester’s best defensemen and may be in the NHL next season.

College prospect Noah Clarke has had another great offensive season for Colorado College. Clarke has 29 points in 33 games. Clarke and Sweden’s Tim Eriksson are both in the same boat- having great seasons but limited due to their small stature.

Very quietly, Jen Karlsson is finding his game. Look for this kid to keep developing and turning into a solid pick, even though the Kings have taken some heat for picking him in the first round.

Denver Pioneers Report

by Christa Moore
on

Even though the DU Pioneers have not had a lot of playoff experience in recent years, they successfully accomplished three important factors of post-season play over the weekend. First, they were not over confident while playing the number ten seed, Michigan Tech. Second, each player contributed to the game and played as a team. And last, several player were playing though new and old injuries.

The DU Pioneers have beaten the Michigan Tech Huskies in the last 6 games that the two teams have met. Most of these games have been very one sided. It would be very easy to look past this series and focus on the final five next weekend. The other top ranked teams in the WCHA struggled though their weekend series with many one goal games and several overtimes. DU sent a message out to the rest of the league that they would not take any team lightly.

DU’s offense, defense and goaltending played each role selflessly. They dominated in both zones and in every period of both games. Offensively, they totaled 13 goals and 71 shots with 9 different players lighting the lamp and 14 different players with helpers. Defensively, they only allowed 2 goals and 33 shots on goal. The goaltending duo that has trade off duties all season long, has been narrowed down to junior Wade Dubielewicz taking over the starting spot in both games. Sophomore Adam Berkhoel enthusiastically sat on the bench though both games and cheered his team on.

Two weekends ago, during the St Cloud series, DU gained one player back from an injury and saw two other key players go d Read more»
