History

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.

2010-11: Piche spent most of his season on the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye, playing in 48 games and scoring 12 goals and 21 assists for 33 points. He also saw time with the Griffins where he put up 2 assists through 11 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.

Chouinard was unable to match his point total of last year. But, he
finished the season with an average of 2.08 points per game. Up from
1.76 the year before. Eric had a 25 game point scoring streak October
12th through December 11th. The streak ended when
Eric went to the Canadian World Junior Team evaluation camp. He returned
after the tournament to add 3 more games to the streak. Chouinard’s play
at the world tournament was less than stellar. Although he scored 3
goals, he was unable to register an assist, and finished the tournament
-1. He proved to be a defensive liability and was not used in any key
defensive situations.

Chouinard was twice named the QMJHL’s player of the week, and was
once named player of the month. He scored 4 goals on 3 different Read more»

Washington Capitals Prospect Report – Playoff Edition

by Jeff Charlesworth
on

Hello and welcome to the latest Washington Capitals Prospect Update. Today I will give you
up-to-date playoff statistics on all of the players on the top 50 list as well as their final
regular season stats.

In what has to be described as an incredible disappointment, both the Capitals and the AHL
Portland Pirates suffered first-round upsets in the playoffs this season. The Capitals won their
division and finished second in the Eastern Conference, but were beaten by the seventh seeded
Pittsburgh Penguins in five games. Portland finished second in their division and third overall
but lost to the Worcester IceCats three games to one.

Not all is lost for the Capitals prospects, however. There are four players still alive in
post-season play. Scott Swanson and Houston (IHL) start their playoffs tonight, while in the WHL
- Calgary (Kris Beech & Rastislav Stana) and Spokane (Roman Tvrdon) are currently playing in
separate semi-final matches. The ECHL’s Hampton Roads Admirals lost their best-of-five
quarterfinal to Trenton last night, 3 games to 2.

Misc. Notes: Three players on the top 50 list missed the post-season, all due to injury:
Forwards Miika Elomo (shoulder) and Trevor Halverson (concussion) as well as Defenseman Alexei
Tezikov (broken foot). Forward Kris Beech suffered a broken finger early on in Calgary’s playoff
run, but should be back soon. So far, only two Capitals prospects have won their league Read more»

Kings Update

by Tony Calfo
on
The Los Angeles Kings season has to be regarded as a big step forward. The Kings posted one of their highest point totals in their history and developed two solid scoring lines and two effective defensive lines. Rob Blake had an outstanding season and the Kings played well despite some shaky goaltending. Then the Kings seemingly erased all those positives by relying on one scoring line and going 0 for the playoffs on the power play. So where do the Kings go from here?

Undisciplined Soo Greyhounds give Whalers nine PP’s in bloody conference final o

by Derek Berry
on

PLYMOUTH, MI-Even the most passive hockey watcher knows that it’s not good to give the opposition nine power play opportunities-in one game.
But that’s what the Soo Greyhounds did in their third-round Western Conference series opener against the Plymouth Whalers at Compuware Sports Arena last Saturday night, falling to the Whalers 4-1 before 2,987.
The gloves were dropping in this Ontario Hockey League contest and the penalty box door was constantly swinging open-especially Soo’s. But, was referee Dean Morton calling this one a little one-sided in favor of Plymouth?
“No, I don’t think so,” said Greyhounds head coach Paul Theriault. “We only had one full power play half way through the game, but I’m not going to question the job the officials did. It’s a good crew.”
Theriault did say, however, that he expects his team to win and play a bit more disciplined than their Game One showing.
The first period was even, in terms of the score. The Greyhounds got on the board first with a goal more than halfway through the first period. Chad Spurr, one of the team’s top scorers, notched a goal at 13:58 to make it 1-0. Then, the boxing matches broke out. Read more»

ICE/Hitmen East Conference Final – WHL Playoffs

by Jeff Bromley

Hitmen on the Ropes

In the land of make-believe and movies, rarely does the sequel ever live up to the billing of the original blockbuster or the hype of the ensuing
drama posed by the second installment of a hit. If the first four games of ICE/Hitmen II – The WHL Freezes Over, are any indication, somebody
should call Hollywood because we’ve got a genuine hit on our hands.

After gaining a well-deserved split of the first two games of the series in Calgary, thus gaining home-ice advantage away from the Hitmen, the
series shifted back to the cozy, hostile confines of the Memorial Arena. Needless to say, more than 10.000 fans in the Canadian Airlines
Saddledome does not compare to 1703 fans jam-packed into the ‘Silverdome’. No, it does not compare in the obvious shear numbers advantage
enjoyed by the Hitmen faithful in the Saddledome. No, it does not compare with the comfortable seats, $5 beverages and popcorn and a
Jumbotron that tells you when you can cheer. Where it also doesn’t compare is it’s sheer ability to add another dimension to the home team’s
effort against the opponent.

Consecutive sellouts of 1703 screaming faithful (ok, hands up everybody who thinks that just 1703 were crammed into the joint on both nights.
Mr. Fire Chief you can put your hand down) were on hand to witness what was in all likelihood the two most exciting games seen in these parts Read more»
