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.

Geoff Peters Help Admirals Shake off Four Game Skid

by Corine Gatti

Teams win, teams lose but if you are on a four-game skid and allowed 34 shots, 1 goals for the first time this season–its a tough lump to swallow. “All teams go through it; I don’t want to call it a slump, we were on the road and we just couldn’t get the wins, said Geoff Peters who had 2 lamplighters for the night.

How did the song end at the Scope? On a good note for Norfolk and for Center Geoff Peters. They dubbed their Quebec counterparts 4-2 in front of an announced crowd of 5,055. Geoff Peters has struggled all year due to injuries and lack of confidence on the ice. But recently, the Hamilton, Ontario native has begun to utilize more of his opportunities. “ I use to look at the big picture, now I am narrowing it down to the little things and taking it one shift at a time.”

The show opened with little action, little rubber, until Francois Fortier broke the stalemate with a slap shot right of the crease from a pass Mike Ribeir 18:55. No matter how the puck was turned goalie Eric Fichaud kept Norfolk at bay. His shutout lasted until the 19:09 mark until Admirals Marty Wilford wristed a shot on a pass from rookie Mark Bell that tied the game. In the third stanza, Geoff Peters had wrap around into the slot taken on a pass from Blair Atcheynun thus making it 2-1. “Tonight you’ve seen more of our style and get the puck in the net at all cost and we wanted it more,” said Peters

IHL Prospect Report

IHL Prospect Watch

The International Hockey League has proved to be a fertile training ground for many youngsters this year while others have struggled. Also, it is apparent that some organizations have bought into the youth movement more than others. Here is a look at the progress of many players that may earn permanent spots on NHL clubs in the near future.

Chicago is stocked with wily veterans. However, they did start off the season with the much ballyhooed Rick DiPietro. After struggling with the Wolves, earning 4 wins, a 3.39 GAA and a 0.880 save percentage in 14 starts, DiPietro has been equally ineffective with the Islanders, obtaining 2 wins, a 3.52 GAA and an 0.878 save percentage in only 13 games.

The Carolina Hurricanes have reason for optimism. In his professional rookie season, Jeff Heerema has contributed 15 goals and 25 points in 58 games. Jean-Marc Pelletier has a respectable 3.09 GAA and 0.906 save percentage in 24 starts. Nikos Tselios, the mammoth defenceman, has been solid on the blueline with 17 points and 64 pims in 64 games. And, although Jaroslav Svoboda has struggled, amassing only 14 points in 52 games, the big Czech winger is only twenty.

Like Chicago, Cleveland also ranks quite low for budding superstars. Peter Bartos has showed signs of promise this year with 4 goals and 6 points in 13 games with the Wild and 13 goals and 32 points in 42 games with the Lumberjacks.

Detroit continues to try to win with youth. They have numerous gems on the squad that should be mainstays with Read more»
