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.

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.

Broncos Buck the ICE out of the Playoffs

Revenge, they say, is a dish best served
cold. For B.J. Boxma it is a dish that
will probably taste sweeter, if you’ll
excuse the pun, on ice. Boxma, the
former Kootenay ICE goaltender who
was traded to the Swift Current Broncos
for a third round pick in this year’s
Bantam draft to get the chance at being
a starting goaltender in the WHL,

Blackburn, Boxma has now come full

shadow in proving to everyone that he is
indeed a number one goaltender in the
WHL. “Danny’s a great guy but when
we’re out on the ice we’re enemies,”
said the Edson, Alta. native
affectionately known as ‘Boxer’. “I for
sure wanted to come in and win the
series no matter how many games it
took and I guess I can look back b Read more»
