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.

New Rankings for Avalanche Prospects

by Brandon LeBourveau

By taking a quick look at the old rankings, one thing was clearly obvious: These rankings haven’t been updated in a while. Well, the wait is finally over. Here are the new rankings for the Top 20 prospects, as well as a little bit of a scouting report for the guys who cracked the top 10. However, before you take a look at these rankings, I just want to make one thing clear. I made these rankings from my opinions and observations of each player. Producing a Top Prospect ranking is a very difficult thing to do. If I asked five people to rank these prospects, I know for a fact I would get five very different rankings. These rankings will likely not be 100% accurate 10 years from now, so do not think that if a prospect that is ranked low and you think they should be ranked higher, it’s not the end of the world. Please leave all comments, positive or negative, at the bottom of the article. Anyway, enough of the gibberish and on to the rankings!

An overview of drafted players and undrafted players with an NHL-career currently active in the Swiss league(s).

Apart from the traditional big 5 (Finland, Sweden, Russia, Czech Republic, Slovakia) in Europe, Switzerland has made some siginificant progress the past few years and has established themselves as a genuine A-pool country. This upbeat is not only displayed on the national team level but as well in the Swiss Leagues (National Liga A and National Liga B). There are currently around 60 players which are either drafted or have had an NHL career playing in Switzerland, most of them being North-Americans. Where exactly are they playing now and what happened to them after they crossed the pond? An overview per NHL team

Montreal Canadiens:

Paul di Pietro
Drafted 1990, 5th rnd, 102nd overall
Current team: EV Zug

Di Pietro was drafted in the 5th round and he won the Stanley Cup in his 2nd pro season. Not a bad record. Being traded to the Leafs straight from the Habs makes it all a bit more spicy. He never really was able to lock a spot on the Leafs roster though and despite a short 6-game stint with the Kings Di Pietro found himself in the minors again. In the 1997-98 season he came over to Europe and got some good money in Germany where he had a good season and drew attention of the Swiss teams. With Ambri-Piotta he had an excellent season and Di Pietro was getting big money offers from around the league. He decided to move to EV Zug. This s Read more»
