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.

The
Trio of Avangard’s Hawks: A Kalashnikov machine gun or a hockey stick?

 

This
year two of Omsk’s forwards, Stanislav Chistov and Alexander Svitov, who were
drafted in the first round 5th and 3rd overall, had to switch their hockey
uniform for kaki pants and shirt.  Due
to the conflict between Avangard and NHL Anaheim and Tampa Bay teams, the young
players became military personnel and had to spend several weeks in barracks. 
The players hardly had time to resume playing in the Super League when
clouds appeared above their heads once again.

Czech Republic – Switzerland Under-16 teams game recap

By Robert Neuhauser and Ivana Paulova

Czech and Swiss Under-16 teams met for the first time in a series of three games that are going to be played this weekend. Check out the recap of this game including the coache’s and player’s comments!

On November, 9th, 2001 there was the first playing day of a three-game series in which the Under-16 teams of the Czech Republic and Switzerland test their skills against each other. The first contest took place in Kralupy nad Vltavou a town only 10 miles from Czech capital Prague. Like every year, the Czech roster boasts lots of NHL prospects. Those players, born 1986 are still far away from being concerned as players who will turn into sure-fire NHL stars but already at this time it is obvious that some of them will probably be called blue-chippers coming the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. On the Czech side goalie Marek Schwarz, a Sparta Praha midgets starter is most likely going to be another in a long series of quality Czech netminders, defensemen Adam Lukacovic, also from Sparta, captains the squad as Jakub Sindel is on a stint with the Under-17 team, and he along with Lubomir Stach of Vsetin are also very good prospects who can have a NHL future. At forward the brightest stars are Michal Birner, a Slavia Praha midgets sophomore, Karel Hromas and Jan Dusatko of Sparta and Vitkovice midgets winger Petr Pohl.

And those players took on the Swiss squad. The Czech team seemed to be in control of the game since the opening faceoff and Radek Smolenak had the first scoring chance on his stick as he received a pass as he crossed the Read more»

Capitals’ Prospects in Portland

by Caitlin LoCascio
on

Here is a look at ten of the Capitals prospects playing in Portland through Game 13.

Veteran defenseman Patrick Boileau has been amazing this past week. Despite an injured ankle, he scored two goals on Wednesday night and looked great tonight.

Krys Barch has a broken arm and will not be playing for several weeks.

Tonight was Nolan Yonkman‘s first game of the regular season and he had a solid start. He seemed more physical than before. He did not play all that many shifts and is still easing his way back into the game after a knee injury.

The Pirates should keep Jason Ulmer and Brad Church on a line together for as long as possible. They are well aware that their spots in Portland can (and have been) taken away, and both were willing to stand on their heads for the team tonight. Ulmer scored the Pirates’ first goal of the night on an incredibly low-percentage shot from the side of the net that was impressive. Church set up both goals of the evening.

Barrie Moore appears to really be getting in the swing of things and looked much more like his old self this past week. He got his first point on Wednesday night and looked very good and very solid tonight.

My opinion on Kyle Clark is dropping rapidly. He used to have the occasional brillant play that would help to make up for the fact he would do nothing else for an entire game, but the past two weeks he has done absolutely nothing. The fact he is 6’7 is far less of a bonus than expected because he rarely uses this to his advantage. Read more»

New Jersey Devils NCAA Prospect Update

New Jersey Devils NCAA Prospect Update

A biweekly article that will look at the development of Future Devils competing in the WCHA, CCHA and Hockey East

1.) David Hale, Defense, North Dakota, sophomore year

The Fighting Sioux of North Dakota have had a tough beginning to the regular season thus far, especially after this past weekend when they dropped two contests to currently number one ranked St. Cloud. In Friday night’s game, David Hale did manage to score a goal half way through the second frame to tie the game. Hale received a nice pass from Ryan Connelly, skated in closer and beat St. Cloud goalie Dean Weasler for his first tally of the season. The tied game was short lived as St. Cloud scored 6 of the next 8 goals. David is seeing more ice time than last year and is playing a larger role. Hopefully he will take full advantage of the opportunity and improve upon his offensive numbers. The Fighting Sioux have the upcoming week off and will travel to MSU-Mankato in two weeks. Hale missed one game because he was ejected the night before.

2001/02 stats: 8 games, 1 g, 0 a, 25 PIM

2.) Paul Martin, Defense, University of Minnesota, sophomore year

One of the biggest surprises this year has been the play of the Golden Gophers as well as Paul Martin. Minnesota entered the past weekend undefeated and the number one team in NCAA Men’s Division One. Just two weeks ago, after a weekend set with Colgate, Paul Martin was named the WCHA Defensive Player of the Week after tallying four points Read more»
