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.


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.

News and notes

by John Maillard

· Rookie forward Mike Jefferson refused an assignment to Albany last week after preseason, and was immediately suspended.

· In a shocker, former Boston College goalie Scott Clemmensen beat out Albany River Rats netminders J.F. Damphousse and Frederic Henry to win the backup role for New Jersey. Clemmensen was terrific during the preseason, stopping a Petr Nedved penalty shot and just simply outplaying Damphousse and Henry, who looked very vulnerable in their starts and relief appearances. Clemmensen and Brodeur should be a nice tandem between the pipes.

· Anyone else notice how much better Sascha Goc looks on the ice this year? He seems much more poised, and his confidence is high. Amazing what a taste of the NHL can do for you.

· Kudos to Josef Boumedienne for scoring his first NHL goal over the weekend. Although he’s not going to make the roster on a permanent basis as long as Scott Niedermayer and Brian Rafalski are healthy, Boumedienne filled in very admirably and looks promising.

UNH vs. Vermont NCAA Action

by Jeff Morton

UNH vs. Vermont: Thank you sir, may I have another

The first real test for the UNH Wildcats came in the form of the University of Vermont Catamounts. It was hardly a test however, as UNH demolished UVM 7-1 with an awesome display of skill, patience, composure, discipline and obviously, scoring.

The first period was full of missed scoring opportunities for UNH, but that was not all bad. In the past, scoring opportunities were few and far between for UNH and this year they are bountiful. So even in not finishing, UNH was making headway. UNH goalie Matt Carney again saw few shots, but continued to display a simple approach to netminding. Carney made great decisions, didn’t get too fancy and played an all around solid game, leaving the UNH defense free to push the puck up ice. The whole UNH team continued to work hard and make things happen in the period. David Busch breaking away, losing the puck then flipping it in front to a streaking Sean Collins, Mick Mounsey blindly passing the puck while being ridden like a rodeo mule, to Josh Prudden alone in front, Justin Aikens breaking away but dragged down to nullify a great opportunity, all scenes not familiar to UNH hockey until recently. While the period ended 0-0, UNH had to have been feeling something stirring inside, because in the second period eyes would be opened.

In the span of five minutes UNH put Vermont’s collective tail between their legs with three goals. The scoring opportunities were much the same as in the first period, but the difference, much like Read more»
