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.

Thoroughblades, Hart Beats For Charity

by Rich Herles
on
Kentucky Thoroughblades fans team up with Hart’s Dry Cleaning along with
their co-sponsors WVLK-AM Radio and WKYT-TV for their Twelfth Annual Coat
Drive. This drive is to help those who are in need of warm clothing and
runs from the beginning of October until the end of January each year.. All
that people had to do was drop off coats that they had out grown or no
longer used to Hart’s Dry Cleaning. The cleaners would clean them and turn
them over to the Salvation Army and any organization that needs them at no
cost. The quantity of coats that are turned in has grown to 6,000 coats a
year.

This is the second year that the Kentucky Thoroughblades Charities has
chosen to get behind this coat drive. Every game prior to Thanksgiving an
announcement asking fans to help those who are less fortunate by donating
their old coats was made and fans were told that on game nights they could
bring coats to the game and drop them of there.

That plea didn’t fall on deaf ears. One season ticket holder who is also a
preschool teacher brought that plea back to her students and their parents.
Beckey Herles told it this way. “Our House Pre-School in Nicholasville
(Kentucky) has about 120 students. Every year we have a food drive that the
school donates to a local church to be handed out to the needy, but I wanted
my class to do something as a class project. When the Coat Drive came up I
brought it to my class and they were excited to do it.” Miss Beckey, as
she’s referred to by her students, started gathering the coats that students

Just Passing Through!

This is a new feature I have developed to profile some of the top performers who have made their way into Mississauga in the past week. When you visit the same arena on a regular basis you have only so many prospects available to watch. These guys may be great talents, but they usually don’t provide enough material for a weekly column. You must branch out with fresh ideas to keep the hobby interesting.

Sunday, January 21, 2001

The Sudbury Wolves came into town and played hungry right from the opening face off. Their huge defensive core set the tone with a bruising barrage of hits. It must have been contiguous, as Wolves forwards installed an aggressive fore check hitting everything in sight. They took a commanding 3-0 lead after one period and didn’t look back on their way to a 5-1 victory.

Here’s a look at some of the Wolves that made an impact in Sunday’s contest.

#13 Alexei Semenov

The Edmonton Oilers have a great future in this kid. Their second round (36th overall) pick from the 1999 NHL entry draft has the all the tools to play with the big boys. He is a definite presence, one of the best all-round defenceman I’ve seen this year. Semenov is a monster (6’6” and 210 pounds) who doesn’t give the opposition a lot of room to maneuver. Loves to play the body and with his long reach is impossible to elude. Clears the front of the net as well as anyone and does not back down from trouble. Deceptive speed with long, smooth strides. He is a great asset on the point in p Read more»

Tigers too tough to tame for the ICE

by Jeff Bromley

In what amounted to be a game of paramount importance for the Kootenay ICE if they have any hope of catching the WHL leading Red Deer Rebels and staving off the surging Calgary Hitmen, the ICE were looking for the automatic two points on Sunday night against the Medicine Hat Tigers. If parity throughout the WHL means anything, two points are never automatic, no matter who you’re playing. Playing against a team that up until Sunday night’s contest had only four wins on the road all season long, the ICE melted in front of the hometown crowd suffering a 4-3 defeat.

In perhaps thinking that a game against the Central Division cellar-dwellers would be an automatic ‘W’ in the standings, the ICE were missing one glaring aspect of their game – defense. Struggling to find the outlet pass out of their own zone all night, turnovers, resulting in at least two of Medicine Hat’s four goals played a key role in the Tiger win. Looking like a man visibly frustrated on the lack of defensive play of his charges, Coach Ryan McGill didn’t have to think hard to find reasons for the loss. “I thought we as a team had a lot of chances to score goals – we just didn’t and I thought our defensemen as a group struggled tonight”, said McGill. “That was the bottom line. Our forwards gave us the chances to win the game and we really struggled behind our blueline. It’s mental breakdowns. As a group we didn’t make any direct passes, we panicked with the puck, we just weren’t focused as a group.”

Due to somewhat of a quirk in the schedule, this game was only the third in the season Read more»
