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.

Rinkside Reflections (Ukraine-Slovakia)

by Lasse Johansson
on

Team Ukraine sensationally won the first relegation game against Slovakia
by three goals to one. The Ukrainian netminder Vadim Seleverstov
was highly resposible for the win, as he didn’t get much support from his defencemen. Slovakia missed five or six “open goal” opportunities and should have won the game comfortably if Seleverstov hadn’t been playing like a god. Slovakia was the better team on every aspect of the game, except the two most crucial aspects; goaltending and goal scoring. The third Ukrainian goal scored by Artem Gnidenko was one of the flashiest goals I have ever seen.

Prospect Report:

Team Ukraine:

#1 Vadim Seleverstov G – Vadim was definately the MVP of this game making loads of extremely big saves. He plays a very spectacular game, and my guess is that he is somewhat inconsistent. You could compare him to Dominik Hasek because of his unorthodox playing style. He was lucky at times, but a good goaltender needs luck. His play reminded me of fellow Ukrainian goaltender Igor Karpenko, who impressed the scouts so much in the 1995 WJCs that he was drafted by the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.

#2 Denis Isaenko D – Captain of the Ukranian team and one of the few players in the offensive minded Ukrainian team who acted with maturity in his own zone. Physical with fairly good size in the otherwise small Ukrainian team. Posesses a hard shot from the point.

Viking Cup 2000: AJHL versus Sweden. Could the Swedes defeat the undefeated?

by Kelly Holtz
on
I was all ready for a fast paced and high scoring game when I sat down in
the 5th row of section A today. The undefeated AJHL All-Stars versus the
Under 18 Swedish National Team. Players I was set to watch out for were:

Team AJHL

#9-Riley Riddell- Riley is a local boy from Camrose, he is the 2nd leading
scorer in the AJHL this season. He is fast, has got soft hands, very agile
and great speed but also he is one of the smallest players in the league.

#19-Connor James- I wasn’t quite sure what to look for in this guy because I
had only noticed he was leading the AJHL All-Stars in scoring.

Team Sweden

#12-Tim Eriksson- Very fast, has incredible puckhandling abilities and is
probably the best playmaker in the Viking Cup.

#13-Jens Karlsson- Possibly the best player on the team. Has great size,
great stickhandling, cannon for a shot, and also has very soft hands.

The 1st period started out with the AJHL throwing some big checks and getting some early
penalties. The AJHL took a lot of unnecessary penalties resulting in good
scoring chances in front of the AJHL net. You could tell that the Albertans
were getting on the the Swedes nerves, everytime the Swedish goalkeeper
covered the puck there was an AJHL player there to crowd the net, this
resulted in a lot of pushing and small skirmishes around the net. For Read more»

SLOVAK ELITE – Statistics of Juniors

by Daniel Kysel
on

While Slovak Elite (Extraliga) has a Christmas break, Slovak national team under 20 struggles against very good teams in Group A, with scoring misery as well as with fever epidemic. Coach of national team Dusan Zizka nominated 12 players form CHL – one goalie, three defensemen and eight forwards. It looked like the team had very strong offence but reality is completely different. Team cannot score. If you know a mentality of Slovaks you can be sure that first game against Czechs influenced other performance of national team. Failure of Slovak team is not such surprise for me. I remember 9th place of Slovaks on JWC 1998 as well as Zizka’s interview full of alibism before start of JWC in Sweden. Bronze medal team was coached by Jan Filc (actually he is coach of national senior team) on last year championship. Zizka did not learn anything from Filc. By the way, do you know who coached team two years ago? You right, Dusan Zizka. In that time national team had to save Pool A only after two victories over very weak German team and finally earned 9th place. As we can see Mr. Zizka leads the team to the same “success“ or to Pool B.
I wish to call your attention to other parallel. On JWC 1998 Slovak team had big troubles to score although Marian Hossa, Ladislav Nagy, Stan Gron, Andrej Podkonicky etc. were in line-up.
O.K. I am very sarcastic but I was not any optimist either week ago. Do you remember Jes?

Viking Cup 2000 (Finland vs Czech Rep.)

Finland VS Czech Rep. A hard nosed big body czeching game!

1.Saku Koivu’s not-so-little brother, Mikko, plays for Finland.

2.Finland plays a hard hitting in your face type of game

3.Czech Republic also plays a hard hitting style.

4.To watch out for a player by the name of Jiri Novotny.

So I went into the game with expectations of a hard hitting affair and lots
of scoring, well at least one of those expectations was right.

The 1st period started off pretty quick. The Finns were all over the
Czechs. Hitting and checking them off of the puck but the Czechs didn’t back
down. There wasn’t much scoring during the 1st period. One goal near the end
of the period by Finland’s Toni Koivisto. In the first period, the Finns outshot the Czechs
9-8..
The 2nd period started out with a bang. 9 seconds into the 2nd frame
Semir Ben-Amor put the puck behind Czech keeper Jaroslav Hubl. But the Flyin
Fins weren’t done there. 31 seconds after that goal, Janne Jokila, Team
Finlands leading scorer, put another goal in. That spelt the end of the game
for Hubl. In came Martin Barek, who kind of reminded me of dominek hasek
with his full screen-cage helmet. The Goaltender change must’ve put a little
more gas in the tanks for the Czechs because after that they played like it Read more»
