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.

Bendera Shipped To Rockets

Bendera Sent Packing

In a strong attempt to gain stability between the pipes, Kelowna Rockets General Manager Bruce Hamilton aquired one of the top goalies in the WHL, Shane Bendera. Marred by goaltending trouble, the Rockets sent 19-year-olds Carsen Germyn and Jason Stone to the Rebels.

Bendera, who had posted an 11-6-3 record with a 2.28 GAA and .918 SV% was flipped for goaltender Jason Stone, who had put up respectable numbers of 12-9-2 with a .299 GAA and .899 SV%. Carsen Germyn, one of the most-liked players on the Rockets, had 10 goals and 28 points in 23 games.

ICE caught looking ahead, now find themselves behind

ICE caught looking ahead, now find themselves behind

Perhaps I was erroneous in last week’s column in the statement that the ICE had yet to find any consistency after the big trade. The ICE have indeed found consistency – of the losing kind.

Barring the excuse of having arguably their two best players off at the World Junior Hockey Championship in Jarrett Stoll and Marek Svatos, the ICE haven’t played well even with the two sharpshooters in the lineup in going 1-4 in their last five games. Coincidentally the Swift Current Broncos are 5-1-0-1 since the trade and Jason Jaffray has scored 11 pts (7g, 4a)good for seventh in the WHL scoring race and seems bent on sending a message of why the ICE shouldn’t have traded the gritty forward. Some other telling stats since the trade; the club’s leading scorer, Tomas Plihal has but one goal; the club’s power-play, once the best in the league, has gone 1/24 since the deal, good for a 4 percent success rate. Now, usually five to seven games are not nearly enough to judge a major deal such as this. But one can’t help but think that the deal will be the major turning point in the ICE season – one way or the other. Right now, it’s the other . . .

While you were sleeping – Here’s the good news – Shane Bendera doesn’t play for the Red Deer Rebels any longer. Now for the bad news – the 19-yr-old Columbus BlueJacket draft pick and most recent ICE-melting nemesis was just traded to Kelowna for 19-yr-old goalie Jason Stone and a 19-yr-old high-scoring forward for the Rockets, Carsen Germyn. Kelowna, in case you’ve forgotten, is t Read more»

Sabres Report: An Interview with Doug Janik

by Ken McKenna
on

This past summer, the Buffalo Sabres signed defensive prospect Doug Janik to his first pro contract. Janik, a 2nd round pick of the Sabres in ’99, played in the U.S. national program before attending the University of Maine for 3 years. He is currently playing for the Rochester Americans of the AHL.

I had a chance to speak with Doug following Rochester’s 12/14 game vs. Cleveland. The following is a transcript of that conversation, with “HF” representing yours truly, and “DJ” being Mr. Janik.

HF

: Tonight’s game- frustrating. For 2 periods, you guys played pretty well, but you’re down 4-1.

DJ

: Yeah, coming off last week, we hoped to have a little better effort and outcome than we had tonight, definitely. So, it’s a disappointing game for us.

HF

: The whole season’s been like that, basically- getting some chances, but not burying the puck.

DJ

: We had a lot of chances tonight; we also had some defensive breakdowns, and it’s just been kind of up and down like that all year.

HF

: Personally, how do you feel you’ve progressed so far this season?

DJ

: Not too bad. Just kind of learning as I go. The older guys and the coaches have been really good so far. I’m very appreciative of that, and I hope to just get better every day.

HF

: You played at Maine the last 3 years, right?

DJ

: Yes.

HF

: You left school early- do you think that was a good move? Was that something Buffalo wanted you to d Read more»

New Rankings for Avalanche Prospects

by Brandon LeBourveau

By taking a quick look at the old rankings, one thing was clearly obvious: These rankings haven’t been updated in a while. Well, the wait is finally over. Here are the new rankings for the Top 20 prospects, as well as a little bit of a scouting report for the guys who cracked the top 10. However, before you take a look at these rankings, I just want to make one thing clear. I made these rankings from my opinions and observations of each player. Producing a Top Prospect ranking is a very difficult thing to do. If I asked five people to rank these prospects, I know for a fact I would get five very different rankings. These rankings will likely not be 100% accurate 10 years from now, so do not think that if a prospect that is ranked low and you think they should be ranked higher, it’s not the end of the world. Please leave all comments, positive or negative, at the bottom of the article. Anyway, enough of the gibberish and on to the rankings!
