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.

Creative and crafty with the puck, the diminutive forward from the Edmonton area possesses the kind of talent that can bring fans out of their seats.

With a glut of players developing in their farm system but Stanley Cup dreams abounding, the Dallas Stars have found little use for their prospects over the course of this season – with one exception, Mattias Janmark. Otherwise, the call-ups have been generally short in nature but have yielded some promising early returns. Esa Lindell has not played many games but the added experience could come in handy as reinforcements are needed, while Devin Shore had his excellent season cut short by injury. Read more»
