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.

23 players will represent the United States at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship (WJC) that begins on Dec. 26th in Montreal and Toronto. Team USA‘s strengths this year will include a deep and talented group of defenders to go along with potentially one of the most talented groups of forwards that the U.S. has iced at this tournament.

Team Russia will arrive at the 2015 World Junior Championship with some momentum after that country’s solid Subway Super Series win last month. The team, led by Valery Bragin, back to the national team after the two-year run by Mikhail Varnakov, features the usual powerful offensive force, very good goaltending and suspect defense. The absence of Buffalo Sabres‘ defenseman Nikita Zadorov will surely affect the team, as he was thought to be a potential first-pairing defenseman. Read more»

It’s been a while since Team Denmark played at the U20 World Junior Championship. What most people remember the most from that 2012 WJC appearance was a particular press conference where a few of the players acted like coaches at a post-game press conference, stating how disappointing it was to come in as ‘favorites’ just to end up losing 10-2 to Canada. It wasn’t the only shellacking they got at that tournament, one that saw them get convincingly relegated. Read more»

They’ve made a routine of it, and it’s been just enough to stick to date. For two years running, Team Germany has decided the relegation round in their favor and managed to stave off relegation accordingly at the World Junior Championship. Read more»
