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.

As the 1997 NHL entry draft quickly appraoches most of the names being
touted as the next stars in the NHL are Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and
Robeto Luongo. But there are a select few (51 to be exact) who have already
been drafted into the NHL but failed to come to terms with there respective
teams, so they will be re-entering the 1997 NHL draft. These players have
not been signed for numerous reasons such as money (which is the most
common), the player in the view of his draftee team did not feel the player
deserved a contract or the player may have felt he would have a better shot
at making the NHL with a different organization. Here is a list of the more
prominent players who will be attending the NHL draft in Pittsburgh Saturday.

Brad Larsen: A two time World Junior gold medalist with Team Canada. Larsen was
the team captain in 1997. An honest player who gives it his all
every shift and every game. A projected 3rd line winger, with
tones of leadership. A player every team needs come playoffs.

John Tripp: This guy hits like a Mack truck. Was a scoring force for the OHL
champion Oshawa Generals durin there playoff drive, but don’t
expect too many goals at the NHL level from yet another Kingston
born hockey player (Doug Gilmour & Kirk Muller). Another 3rd
line winger, who loves to hit and hit to hurt. If Tripp
gained some confidence from the OHL playoffs then just maybe he Read more»
