The Atlanta Thrashers have agreed to terms with forward Dmitri Vlasenkov, according to Don Waddell, vice president and general manager for the
team. Vlasenkov’s rights were acquired from the Calgary Flames along with Hnat Domenichelli on Feb. 11, 2000 in exchange for Darryl Shannon and Jason Botterill. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Vlasenkov, 22, led Yaroslavl and tied for fifth overall in the Russian Hockey League with 35 points (15 goals, 20 assists) in 38 games last season. He also led the club in playoff scoring with seven points, tallying three goals and four assists in 10 games. The 5-11, 185-pound left wing has spent the majority of the last five seasons with Yaroslavl, amassing 40 goals and 31 assists for 71 points
in 168 games. He has also played for Yaroslavl’s division two team. Vlasenkov led the 1998-99 club with 11 goals and tied for fifth in scoring, registering 16 points in 41 games. The native of Olenigorsk, Russia, was originally selected by the Flames with their fourth choice, 73rd overall, in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft.

2000-01 UMass-Lowell Recruits

by Monty Rodrigues

The UMass Lowell 2000/2001 recruiting class was finalized over the last
couple of weeks, and includes a couple of potential big name players. The
Hawks losses from last year include the four seniors, forwards Chris Bell
(9-21-30), John Campbell (7-11-18) and Craig Brown (4-5-9) along with
defender Kevin Bertram (10-8-18). Two players that would have been
sophomores this year, defenseman Andy Wozniewski and goalkeeper Dan
Weinrieb
will return to junior hockey for the 2000-2001 year.

So with six spots to fill, the Hawks recruited well to restock each of the
positions that were lost. The big name of this years incoming class is
forward Laurent Meunier, a freshman from Echirolles, France and former
teammate of River Hawk junior forward Yorick Treille. Meunier, 5’11″, 180
pounds, is described by Coach Tim Whitehead as a “very well-rounded
forward.” Meunier, born 1/16/79, spent the last year as a member of the
Leon Lions in the French Elite League. He might have made a name for
himself though at the 2000 World Hockey Championship in St. Petersburg,
Russia this past year. Meunier was the 11th leading scorer in the
Tournament, with a 4-3-7 line in 6 games, even though he was one of the
younger players participating. “Laurent is a top-notch player,” Whitehead
said. “He skates well and is very smart with the puck. I can see him doing
a
lot of things for us.”

Forward Peter Hay (Weyburn, SJHL) was the first player signed by Lowell for Read more»

This installment of Future Watch is featuring Matt Gens out of Baudette, MN.
Gens, is a mobile defenseman with a good offensive sense of the game.
“The NTDP has been fantastic for me,” said Gens. Gens and his teammates
willl have a great solid returning team next year and look for them to do
some damage at the U-18 world championships. Gens is looking at staying in
the WCHA for his college options. “I really like Wisconsin, Minnesota, and
North Dakota; they are all great schools with great tradition,” Gens
exclaimed. As far as the summer goes Gens is taking a break off from the
ice and just training to get stronger and gain some bulk to his frame.

Nick Beverly off to the Windy City

Nick Beverly off to the Windy City: Leafs Director of Player Development, Nick Beverly, left the team this week in pursuit of new challenges with the Blackhawks (Late note: Director of Pro Scouting, Joe Yannetti has also left to join the Hawks)… Nick is said to enjoy a very close working relationship with Chicago’s de facto General Manager, Mike Smith… Beverly, a respected executive, will be missed… perhaps more importantly, the Maple Leafs lately can’t seem to keep a management team intact for more than a year or so… expect Toronto to move slowly in securing a replacement as Pat Quinn and Bill Watters remain on hand to conduct all necessary business… 30-year-old Mark Hillier may be in line for expanded responsibilities… former Flames execs Al Coates and Nick Polano are also said to be interested in coming to Toronto… these options are all very viable ones as Hillier is widely regarded as a rising star in the Leafs’ front office and Calgary, under the guidance of Coates and Polano, has quietly built one of the league’s very best player development programs…
