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.

Anaheim Ducks’ prospect pipeline produces outstanding NHL talents

Josh Manson - Anaheim Ducks

The Anaheim Ducks have done a fairly good job over the last several years of slowly phasing young players into the lineup, while not thrusting them entirely into the fray without preparation. For this reason, they have just three prospects who have garnered long-lasting NHL time on the year. With that being said, there are several prospects in the minors who are on the cusp of NHL time, but will probably see at least the remainder of the season with the Gulls in San Diego. There is not a whole lot of room on the Anaheim depth chart, but a few have still cut in and are making an attempt at regular playing time.
