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.

It will be the highest selection the organization has had since it took Logan Couture with the same pick back in 2007.

Even for the eternal optimist, it’s hard to look at the Arizona Coyotes as they currently stand and think positive thoughts. The team missed the playoffs for the third consecutive season, the organization was forced into trading two of their core players in Keith Yandle and Antoine Vermette, and now a messy and frustrating legal situation is front and center.

A late season swoon and a first-round playoff loss to the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks took some luster off what was a very promising 2014-15 season in Nashville. The Predators, expected to struggle when the season started, led the Central Division for much of the year. Rookie Filip Forsberg led the team in scoring while veteran Mike Ribeiro returned to the form he showed during his days with the Dallas Stars.

In a draft class as pumped up and anticipated as this year’s is, it should come as no surprise that Sweden will likely be the producer of over 20 players taken by NHL teams over the course of the 2015 NHL Draft. For several years now, Sweden has established itself as the third-largest provider of NHL-drafted talent, coming in after Canada and the USA. Read more»
