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.

U18-Worldchampionship in Finland

Before the championship starts, the U18-nationalteam plays in two exhibitiongames in Füssen, germany, against the U18-team from the czech republic. A 3-3 draw follows a 3-2 win (Goals from Goc(2), Schauer, Danner, Barz and Triller). So, the team was in a good form for the championships, but horable news reaches the team after the second game against the czechs': the top defenseman, Alexander Sulzer has a shoulder-injury and can’t play in the championships. Very bad news for the team, Sulzer was the rookie of the year in the third league and a possibly draft-pick in this year or the next year. But, Alex Sulzer is just 16 years old and can play at the championships next year.

Two days before the championships started, coach Jim Setters named his squad (detailly informations about every player will follow in the next days) and set following players on the recall-list: Goalies Alexander Lerchner from Kaufbeuren and Patrick Ehelechner from Mannheim (born 1984, so he will play in the U18-championships next year). Defenders Florian Horvath from Kaufbeuren, Daniel Kirchberger from Augsburg and Sebastian Osterloh from Cologne. Forwards Manfred Eichber Read more»

Alexander Barkunov Yaroslavl Russia 35 5+1=6 8 / 2 0+0 2

Despite only playing for the second team last season Barkunov stepped right into the lineup of the first team this year and
played great hockey. He started out very good with two goals in his first two games and his offensive play and hard work
made up for his lack of experience. Faded a little after the WJC and was a healthy scratch in all but two playoff games.
Played in three tournaments with the Russian J20 team (1+3 in 14 games) including the WJC in Russia there he was one of
the better defencemen on a Russian team that finished 7th. With a senior-season under his belt he will hopefully be a factor
in both the regular season and the playoffs for Yaroslavl next year.

Boom Boom: Alexei Semenov

by pbadmin

A perfect nickname for this towering Russian prodigy who has played his third season for the Sudbury
Wolves. Last season Alexei Semenov was named OHL defensive defenseman of the year and by all accounts this season should result with the same accolads.
A steady marked improvement in all aspects of his game will give him a legitimate chance of cracking the Oilers roster next season.

His most appealing attributes are a perfect fit for the needs of the present Oilers blueline. His best qualities include his devastating open ice hits and menacing presence in front of the net. Alexei also provides a excellent shot from the point and would be an excellant alternativeon the second powerplay unit along side Tom Poti. Whats even more appealing to the Oilers managemnt is his wing span and mobility will make it near impossible to beat him one on one.

A nice progression in his point total over the last two seasons give the coaching staff reason to believe some of that talent will come forth to the next level.

99-00 GP-65 G-9 A-35 Pts-44 Pim-135

00-01 GP-67 G-21 A-42 Pts-63 Pim-106

00-01 Playoff’s Gp-12 G-4 A-13 Pts-17 Pim-17

Adding Semenov to the mix could allow the Oilers to have 3 solid units on defense and pair the two offense defense with a solid efensive partner without tearing up the Jason Smith and Igor Ulanov duo. By pairing Alexei Semenov and Tom Poti together it would allow Tom to be more offensivly creative without having to worry about the backend. Plus an added bonus is since both of them are young they wi Read more»

Moose Cash in on Former Goalie

IHL NEWS

The Manitoba Moose are cashing in on the rise of former goaltender Johan Hedberg, who is making a name for himself – and the Moose – while guarding the nets for the Pittsburgh Penguins in their current NHL playoff battle with the Washington Capitals.

A career minor leaguer, Hedberg became an immediate fan favourite after posting a 7-1-1 record for the Penguins down the regular season stretch, then securing the starting role for the playoffs.

“They’re buying anything that has `Hedberg’ on it,” said Tim Scott, the Moose vice-president of marketing, communication and corporate development.

“They’re buying Moose antlers. They’re buying $300 US game jerseys. They’re buying Moose foam No. 1 hands. They’re looking for Moose-call horns.

“It’s turning out to be fun, that’s for sure.”

It’s also turning out to be profitable, while generating exposure for the Moose across North America.
That’s largely due to the fact that Hedberg is still wearing his Moose mask in Pittsburgh.

Scott believes the sale of Moose gear will grow exponentially in Pittsburgh – where the fans chant “Moose” every time Hedberg makes a big save – if the Penguins advance further in the NHL playoffs.

“It’ll continue because this Moose mania was created by the fans,” Scott noted. “It wasn’t created by the team or a marketing guy.”

For example, the Moose have just sent the Penguins 200 Hedberg playing cards in exchange of a game-worn, autographed Mario Lemieux jersey, which they will probably auction off for Read more»
