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.

USHL – Black Hawks make moves to bolster playoff hopes

With the trading deadline at midnight Tuesday night, the Waterloo Black Hawks phone was pretty busy. The Black Hawks and head coach Scott Koberinski made three deals before the USHL trading deadline. In the first deal Waterloo sent USHL defensive veteran Eric Weum, who has been out for awhile with mono, to the Great Falls Americans of the AWHL.

In return the Hawks get the Americans captain Zac Headrick who on the season has amassed 6 goals and 25 assists to go with 128 penalty minutes. Headrick led all defenseman in the AWHL in scoring. Waterloo also sent forward Nate Hansen to the Des Moines Buccaneers in return for Andrew Nelson. Nelson totaled 6 goals and 9 assists on the year for the Bucs. In the final trade of the day Waterloo also sent recently acquired big man Keith Boyer to Des Moines in exchange for forward Ross Carlson. On the year Carlson has 5 goals and 12 assists. Final rosters are not set until early in February.

The Black Hawks hope the new offensive minded defenseman and experienced forwards will help push the Hawks over the hump and into contention for a potential playoff spot. Currently Waterloo is 10-19-1 for 21 and 12th place out of a 13 team league. The 8th and final playoff spot is currently held by the Chicago Steel who have 30 points. If Waterloo can shore up it’s offensive problems and keep their solid goaltending they are just a winning streak away from getting into the final spot.

Norway News and Notes

Former Rangers prospect/minor leaguer Anders Myrvold decided the AHL and Hartford was not for him. Myrvold signed a contract after agreeing to be released with Fribourg of the Swiss league for the remainder of their season. Myrvold said he hopes to return to the Rangers and Hartford for the playoffs. Myrvold decided that there was “no room at the inn” in New York with the big club so more ice time in Europe was more to his satisfaction.

Espen Knutsen continues to play more and more for the Columbus Blue Jackets logging nearly 27 minutes in the past 2 games. Knutsen of Oslo has struggled with the Jackets but looks to be improving.

Norwegian Patrik Thoresen is playing for Moncton of the QMJHL and is currently second in the entire Q-league in rookie scoring with 17goals and 41points in 33 games. Thoresen is fast moving up the central scouting boards ratings for the 2002 NHL entry draft. If his mind is in it… watch out for this kid.

St.Louis Blues prospect Tore Vikingstad has signed another deal with his German club Düsseldorf. Vikingstad has been a key player for his club and Blues fans will have to wait another year or so to see this talented player.

Jonas Norgren has been splitting time in the nets with Geir Østberg in Storhamar. Norgren locked up the starting job earlier this season but after struggles early in the season Norgren was named Co-no.1.
