USHL Season Update

by Jason Shaner
on

The 2001-2002 USHL season is already heading into December and getting towards the Christmas break. Most teams have played about a third of their games and position in the league standings is still undetermined at this point. Currently in the Eastern division the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders stand at the top of the mountain. A 14-6-1 records gives them 29 points to lead the way. However, the Des Moines Buccaneers are not far behind with 26. Des Moines has not played up to preseason expectations but remain in the hunt for the time being. The Green Bay Gamblers who year in and year out are tops in the Eastern division until this season, are tied with Des Moines for second place. Cedar Rapids has been rather impressive to start off the season. Cedar Rapids has posted a league high 10 wins on the road. What that means is that the RoughRiders are getting many of their road games out of the way early this season and they will have a favorable schedule the second half. If the Eastern division hopefuls do not get moving, Cedar Rapids may end up running away with the Division title.

In the Western division the Sioux City Musketeers have been magnificent. The Musketeers have experienced unprecedented success at home posting a 13-0 record so far en route to a Western division and league leading 37 points. Their rink is very small and their big forwards and defensemen use that to their advantage to make it quite difficult for a visiting team to come in and win a game. That advantage will be monumental heading into the playoffs should they end up with home ice adva Read more»

ICE, Broncos make blockbuster trade

by Jeff Bromley

If it wasn’t the biggest trade ever made in the history of the Kootenay ICE, it will certainly go down as the most shocking. In a deal to address a perceived shortcoming between the pipes, Kootenay ICE G.M. Jeff Chynoweth did what many had thought unthinkable. He traded ICE captain and forward Jason Jaffray, 20 along with goaltender Jeff Harvey, 18 defenseman Aaron Rome, 18 and Kootenay’s first round draft pick in the 2002 Bantam Draft to the Swift Current Broncos for a familiar face in goaltender B.J. Boxma, 20 forward Duncan Milroy, 18 and the Broncos’ fifth round pick in the 2004 Bantam Draft. For Boxma, it is his second tour of duty with the ICE after being dealt to the Broncos just over thirteen months ago. In Milroy, a second round draft pick (37th overall) of the Montreal Canadiens in last June’s draft, the ICE receive a proven scorer who amassed 34 g and 54 a for 92 points last season.

Even though Harvey had played well in the club’s three wins over the weekend, Chynoweth said he had to make this deal to shore up the club’s biggest weakness, goaltending. “We felt we had to address the situation in goal,” said Chynoweth in his office shortly after the trade was announced. “Not that we were displeased with Bryan (Bridges) and Jeff but we felt we needed a proven number one guy.”

Chynoweth pointed out that the fact that the amount of proven, playoff goaltenders weren’t exactly in abundance in the WHL and that there were other clubs in the league that were in the market for a premier puckstopper as another reason for pulling the trigger on a trade of this Read more»
