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.

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.

Boxma still haunting the ICE

Boxma still haunting the ICE

B.J. Boxma doesn’t have anything left to prove against the Kootenay ICE. The Edson, Alberta native accomplished that goal last April when he backstopped his Swift Current Broncos to a seventh game Eastern Conference Semifinal win over the ICE to unceremoniously boot his former mates from last year’s playoffs.

Now the former 1996 Kootenay ICE 4th round Bantam pick would love nothing more than to make it a habit of waltzing into the Cranbrook Rec/Plex and strutting out with a win. Unfortunately for him or perhaps more fortunate for the ICE, the Broncos won’t visit the Key City due to Kootenay’s change of conference last summer. Unless of course, another playoff match-up is in the cards.

It this winning habit over the ICE becoming an obsession?

“Nah,” said a humble Boxma. “I think that the boys just wanted to win it for me. It’s probably my last game here ever and I wanted to go out with a victory. The guys played really well in front of me tonight.”

Both Boxma and his Bronco teammates played well-enough to get past a lack-luster Kootenay ICE squad 4-3 Wednesday night. But in the third period with the Broncos clinging to a one goal lead and Kootenay peppering 17 shots on the Bronco netminder, it was Boxma that ensured none of those shots hit the twine. It was Boxma’s second consecutive win following a 1-0 win over the Prince Albert Raiders and surprisingly enough, it was Boxma’s first shutout in his 102 game WHL career.

God Bless Kim Gernack

I bring terrible news to the Hockey’s Future family our Edmonton Oilers team Editor Kim Gernack passed away.

Known as Redtwilight on the message boards he brought a sense of common decency and mutual respect to our happy hockey-loving band of rogues. I will personally miss insight and passion for the game and the true appreciation he showed for everyone’s hard work.

I spoke to Kim late last week from his bed at the University Hospital in Edmonton and he was upbeat and looking forward to coming back to chat with his boys on the Edmonton page.

At this time I would like to pay our respects to his lovely wife Marilyn and his entire family.
Kim’s name will forever stay as the Editor of the Edmonton Oilers team page for the existence of this publication.

I would like to officially announce that the Hockey’s Future charity that is presently being built to help under privileged children play hockey will be named after Kim Gernack.

Please send all condolences to the Edmonton Oilers message board.

Respectfuly,

Shane Malloy

Minnesota Wild Prospect Update

by Mark Schwarz

AHL

(HF prospect rankings are in parentheses)

Travis Roche (4) 14 GP 8-5-13 29 PIM +5

Clearly a class player in the AHL, and it’s only a matter of time before he cracks the Wild’s NHL roster permanently. Leads the AHL in defender goals, and is amongst the leaders in both defender and rookie scoring. Posted 1g 2a in his last game vs. Manitoba November 14. Turning in the sort of dominant performance needed to graduate to the next level. Was called up for one game vs. Nashville, on Halloween.

Kyle Wanvig (5) 14 GP 2-4-6 31 PIM -1

Has seen an up-and-down start to the start of his pro career. Scored has first AHL goal just 2 minutes in the Houston’s season opener. Took another 12 games and 5 weeks until he lit the lamp again vs. Manitoba Nov. 12. Offensive game is coming along a bit slower than expected, but his size and grit is holding him in good stead in the AHL game.

The Svitov Saga

by Megan Sexton
on

Who needs to watch Days of our Lives when there is Alexander Svitov and his ongoing saga to keep them entertained? The drama and suspense are incomparable, not to mention the bizarreness of the whole matter.

While an end is nowhere in sight, I have put together a timeline to help keep track of the situation.

6-24-01

It all began when Tampa Bay Lightning Assistant GM Jay Feaster took the podium in Sunrise, Fla. and announced as the third overall selection what looked to be the mos t NHL-ready player in the draft. The team had hopes of immediate assistance from the young Russian star.

A flurry of off-season transactions diminished the need for Svitov in the lineup for the 2001-02 season. When the European signing deadline passed with no word from T ampa Bay on its first round draft selection, no one was very surprised.
