Talent Analysis

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.

Future


Projects as a depth defenseman. Will really need to step up and show he can play at the pro level.  Piche was dealt to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the deal that brought Kyle Quincey back to the Detroit Red Wings.

Coming into the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship, Stepan Falkovsky was about the only Belarusian player known to the international ice hockey community as he currently suits up for the Ottawa 67’s of the OHL. There, the 19 year old sports seven goals, 22 points, and a +11 rating in 37 games in his first season of North American play. Despite a 6’7” and 225-pound frame that he doesn’t shy away from using, Falkovsky plays a rangy game and seems very adept at making solid first passes or firing the puck from the point Read more»

With only two players in the lineup having played in North America, namely team stalwart Stepan Falkovsky of the Ottawa 67’s and Vadim Malinovski of the Okanagan HC Europe, Belarus traveled to Helsinki for the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship with a team relatively unknown to the international ice hockey community.

The struggles of the Calgary Flames in the 2015-16 season have been high-profile. They have failed to build upon a Cinderella run last year that saw the team beat the analytics and crash out after getting to the Division Finals. With struggles coming from the big club, you would like to at least see some good coming from their AHL affiliate in their inaugural season in Stockton, California. Unfortunately, it that has not been the case.
