Is an offensive-oriented defenseman. Piche does very well on the powerplay, as he has good puck control and possesses an impressive, strong shot. He also plays a steady defensive game when needed.

In most cases, a winning record and a championship trophy would be considered a triumphant year, but not for the Buffalo Sabres, a rebuilding team more concerned with stockpiling talent. Losing was winning for the Sabres, because each loss meant getting closer and closer to their prize: Connor McDavid. A generational talent, McDavid could single-handedly alter the course of a franchise and provide multiple winning records and trophies for years to come. Read more»

While some of these players may eventually wind up in North America as soon as this winter, fans may just see U.S. wunderkind Auston Matthews in a pro European jersey this winter, as well.

From the Carolina Hurricanes’ perspective, things could not have gone much better for them in the first round of the 2015 NHL Draft. While the top two picks were signed, sealed and delivered when Edmonton won the NHL Draft Lottery, how the rest of the top 10 would shake out was very much a mystery. Read more»

Expectations were tempered for Pittsburgh Penguins goaltending prospect Matt Murray. Heading into the 2014-15 season, his first year as a pro, Murray was expected to compete with veteran Jeff Zatkoff for starts in the AHL. Instead, the first-year goalie finished the 2014-15 season as AHL Goaltender of the Year, AHL Rookie of the Year, and led the league in goals-against average, shutouts, and save percentage.
