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.

Barry Tallackson Future Watch

by Erik Freeman
on
It’s time yet again for another Future Watch. This time it’s Barry Tallackson, a Minnesota native, who spent last season with the Under 17 team in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Tallackson is a finesse player with size at 6-3 176lb, who also doesn’t mind playing the physical game. “The program has been great for me, it’s great competition, and I’m excited about Coach Eaves taking over,” Tallackson said. He thinks that the new coaches will have a huge effect on the system they use as compared to Jackson and Mancini. “It will benefit us greatly, I think,” Tallackson explained. The schools he is interested in include Minnesota, North Dakota, Colorado College, and Wisconsin.

Tallackson will spend one more year at the NTDP and then likely move on to the college level. What ever school lands Tallackson will get a physical forward with a scoring touch.

WOLVES TREFILOV WINS IHL PLAYOFF MVP.

Andrei Trefilov of the Chicago Wolves earned IHL MVP honors in the 2000
Turner Cup Playoffs and will have his name inscribed on the N.R. “Bud” Poile
Trophy. Trefilov and his teammates also won the Turner Cup defeating the
Grand Rapids Griffins four games to two.

Trefilov led all goaltenders in the post-season with a 1.35 GAA and a .950
save percentage in nine games. He was instrumental in his team’s playoff
success, finishing with a 7-1 record while allowing just ten goals on 191
shots. He also earned a shutout in Game Two of the Turner Cup Finals, when
he stopped all 32 Grand Rapids’ shots. He also had a shutout in the Western
Conference Finals when the Wolves blanked the Houston Aeros 2-0 in game
four.

In the Wolves’ earlier playoff wins over the Long Beach Ice Dogs and the
Houston Aeros, Trefilov battled against fellow netminders and the
International Hockey League’s regular season co-MVP’s Nikolai Khabibulin and
Frederic Chabot. Trefilov was undefeated in his three appearances in the
Finals, and allowed a total of just six goals.

Since it’s inception during the 1988-89 season, Trefilov is just the third
goaltender to be named the Playoffs MVP, sharing this honor with Pokey
Reddick (Fort Wayne, 1992-93) and Tommy Salo (Utah, 1995-96). The Read more»

Bruins 2000 Draft Preview: Eyes On A Prize

by pbadmin
on
There are few benefits to a losing season, but one of them happens to be a high draft position. Clearly, Boston’s strong teams hurt many of the Bruins’ drafts in the 1980s and early 1990s. Other than Glen Wesley (#3 in 1987), Joe Thornton, and the Hartford trifecta
of choices(Kyle McLaren 9/95, John Aitken 8/96, Sergei Samsonov 8/97) acquired for,ironically enough, Wesley, Boston has not had many opportunities to select a player in the top 10 of any given draft year. As a result, bombs such as Dave Pasin, Rob Cimetta,
Shayne Stevenson, Kevyn Adams and Evgeni Ryabchikov hurt Boston’s chances of developing an outstanding crop of younger players to augment its aging superstars. As for this season, don’t be fooled. Despite the Bruins’ no-show in the 1999-2000, they have some excellent prospects in the system and with the 7th overall pick in this year’s draft , they could land a superb player. This year promises to be intriguing because of the large amount of European influence predicted. What does this mean? Well, for starters the field could be wide open with some big surprises in the early going come draft day. Of course, with this season’s pool being labeled as weak by many in the scouting business, a top 10 selection is never a guarantee of landing an impact player, but the Bruins will gladly take their chances.

Sens News and Notes

by Nathan Estabrooks
on
The expansion draft is approaching quickly and it is yet to be determined what the Senators will do. Yesterday a roster freeze fell into place and teams won’t be permitted to make any further moves until later in the week. Players with fewer than two years of
experience are exempt. If two goalies are protected the team can protect three defensemen, and seven forwards. Otherwise the more common formula is one goalie, five defensemen and nine forwards. What makes this draft very important, is that with both Columbus and Minnesota entering the league, all teams will lose two players instead of just one. The Senators have recently made two moves that effect this ratio. Rich Parent was
acquired from Tampa for a 7th round pick and today Patrick Traverse was sent to Anaheim for Joel Kwiatkowski. The Traverse move lends more heed to the possibility the Sens will protect two goalies. Johnstone loves Lalime and he will be protected. Hurme’s late season play in the IHL playoffs will buy himself a few more years to prove himself as well. Each expansion team is allowed to pick 6 goalies each; three is probably the practical limit.

Traverse is a big loss. The lanky rear guard cultivated a reputation for being very reliable both defensively and offensively. The hole left on the blueline is a big one and Kwiatkowski won’t be the answer. An 8th rounder in the ’96 draft, he was originally taken by Dallas. For the past two years Kwiatkowski had been playing for Cincinnati in the Read more»
