History

2008-09: Had a breakout year for Rimouski, scoring 72 points in 62 games.

2009-10: In his first pro season, Piche appeared in 9 AHL games with Grand Rapids with no points and 4 PIMs. He skated in 36 ECHL games with the Toledo Walleye, scoring 5 goals, 23 assists for 28 points. He added 2 assists in 4 playoff games.

2010-11: Piche spent most of his season on the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye, playing in 48 games and scoring 12 goals and 21 assists for 33 points. He also saw time with the Griffins where he put up 2 assists through 11 games.

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.

Olympic Zuccezz for Zetterberg?

The Olympic Games have begun. Team Sweden’s NHL stars are competing for their teams
in USA and Canada while 21-year old Henrik Zetterberg is still in Sweden. He is not a Mats Sundin
or a Peter Forsberg, not yet that is…

In order to remain in shape during the SEL-break Zetterberg is currently training with 2nd-tier league
team Sundsvall. In less than a week the Detroit draftee will enter the E Center in Salt Lake City and play his very
first Olympic Game. The opponents in Sweden’s opening game are perhaps the toughest possible, Canada.

The quite unexperienced Zetterberg will play against stars like Mario Lemieux, Joe Sakic, Chris Pronger etc…
It’s not like he hasn’t played good players before, but we’re talking about franchise players now.
So can this youngster really contribute with something? After all he is playing on a Swedish team full with
experienced stars, with plenty of seasons in the NHL. Zetterberg is currently playing his 2nd season in the Swedish Elitserien, and most
likely his last in 10 years or so.
Well, the answer is YES, he can contribute. For those who yet haven’t had the opportunity to see Zetterberg
in action, it’s a understatement to call him a great player. He is one of those players that can do the thing
you least expect. He reads the game so well, and sees openings that many other players aren’t capable of seeing.

Predators News and Notes

Walker Needs To Be Moved, But Not to Another Team

The emergence of Scott Walker, an original Predator expansion draft choice, was one of the more bright spots of last season. The Preds were counting on Walker to repeat, and perhaps even better, the success that he achieved last season. At the halfway point in the NHL season Walker has missed a significant number of games, but missed even more opportunities to shine as a star for the Predators. Walker has 4 goals, 5 assists putting him on pace for a whopping 18 total points this season.

He had more total goals last season. So many ask, why such a drop-off in terms of offensive production – the nemesis of the Nashville team? One reason could be injuries. Everyone gets injured at some point in time in the NHL and time is honestly the only healing power. Another reason could be teams focusing in more on him this season after a breakout season last year.

These two points are valid, but I believe there is different reasoning behind this nagging problem for the Preds and I also have the solution. Okay, it’s story time. Way back before the Predators even existed as a franchise there was an undersized, hardworking defensemen named Scott Walker. Walker worked his way up through the Vancouver Canucks system and eventually earned a spot on the team on the checking line and as an emergency defensemen. When the Predators brought Walker to Nashville, they stuck to the recent and left him alone at forward. I propose the team at least try him out on the blueline. First-of-all, he has had experi Read more»
