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.

In the game of hockey, much is made of individual performances and skill sets. But hockey is and always will be a team sport, and no matter how great a young player is, he will always be reliant upon his linemates. Every second on the ice is a battle. For every highlight-reel shift where a player weaves around his entire opposition and scores, there are a thousand shifts where he and his linemates have to work together for a positive result.

In this edition of the Edmonton Oilers Top 20, both Martin Marincin and Oscar Klefbom have graduated from the rankings, both surpassing the NHL game maximum to still be considered a prospect by Hockey’s Future’s standards. Darnell Nurse continues to hold down top spot as he dominates his junior competition with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the OHL, and 2014 third-overall draft selection Leon Draisaitl follows closely behind him.

Injuries forced the Blue Jackets to dig into their prospect pool this season. That allowed highly-touted first rounders Alexander Wennberg, Marko Dano and Kerby Rychel to get their first taste of NHL action. Columbus also had a few pleasant surprises; Anton Forsberg came into his own between the pipes, and Austin Madaisky has had a breakout season on the blue line for the Falcons. Read more»

There are just six NHL-drafted goaltenders playing in the QMJHL this season, a relatively low number for the league once known for producing some of the top goaltenders in the NHL. At most, there is three netminders with some combination of pedigree and talent, while the others are unlikely to advance far in pro hockey. Read more»
