History

2008-09: Played in 63 games for the Belleville Bulls in his OHL rookie season.  Silas scored 3 goals and added 14 assists for 17 points, also registering 18 penalty minutes.  In 17 playoff games for the Bulls, he did not register a point. 

2009-10: Silas improved his totals, picking up 4 goals and 45 assists for 49 points in 66 games for Belleville.  Played for Team Orr at the 2010 Top Prospects Game.

2010-11: Silas skated in a career-high 68 games in his third season with OHL Belleville and was second on the Bulls with 34 assists as a defenseman. He scored 2 goals with 52 PMs and was -16. The Bulls reached the OHL playoffs despite winning just 21 games but were no match for regular season champion Mississauga St. Michael's in their first round series. Silas finished -2 with 2 PMs in four games against the Majors.

Talent Analysis

Silas is not afraid to thrown his body around, and has a good grasp of the offensive side of the game but his skating and defensive play leave more to be desired. His greatest attribute is his playmaking ability.

Future

Silas will spend another season or two at the OHL level, working on his shot, his skating and improving his positional play.

Women’s Hockey – The Last of the Amateurs

by Jeff Bromley
on
I’ll admit I approached it with cautious optimism. Women’s hockey, the Canadian national team against Team Sweden. Being a servant of the great Canadian game, men’s hockey is what I follow. It’s what I write about, criticize, celebrate and lament. Women’s hockey was, up until this point, still a novelty to me. The best comparison to the men’s level would be about Midget AAA I was told. That would be my first mistake over the past few days as I prepared to take in the Cranbrook Regional Hospital Foundation – sponsored Canada vs. Sweden Women’s Hockey game this past week.

The first thing I learned outright is that is it completely unfair to categorize women’s hockey in relation to its gender sibling. The difference’s between the men’s game and the women’s are many. Not the least of which are the obvious – size and physicality of the game. But that’s not the glaring difference that it’s made out to be. Once you start to watch these girls play you notice how they play the actual game with the puck. By not having the physicality of the Men’s game, the Women’s game contain’s the subtle nuances of the game in its purest form. Razor-sharp stick-handling, tape to tape passes and more dipsy-doodles in one game than I’ve seen in a few years. To clarify, I still advocate the men’s style of hockey. Give me a bone-crushing hit or a bout of fisticuffs anytime. But the women’s style of play probably exudes the actual skills of hockey on a more frequent basis and in all honesty, it was a treat to watch.

German prospects – the update
A rating for the games since 14th till 22th January

VERY GOOD
G Christian Rohde plays in two of three games for the Augsburger Panther in the DEL. In the 9-2 win against Eisbären Berlin he replaces Nr.1-goalie Jason Muzzatti for the last 37 seconds. Three days later he plays as the starting-goalie against the Kassel Huskies. In a solid performance in the regualar time he saves 42 shots (4 GA). After the regualar time (4 – 4 goals) he helped his team with his fast gloves to a 5-4 win after the shootout. Stats: Augsburg/DEL: 2 GP, 61 MIN, 1-0-0, 4 GA
Season Stats: Augsburg II/4th: 24 GP, 1434 MIN, 8-16-0, 83 GA, 1 SO, GAA 3,89
Augsburg/DEL: 3 GP, 77 MIN, 1-0-0, 5 GA, SavePct 90,20%, GAA 3,85

The Adler Mannheim defeat Oberhausen 9-2 to go on top of the table and especially in this game, their 19 year-old defender Denis Seidenberg plays a very good defensive and offensive part. The undisputed „player of the game“. Stats: Mannheim/DEL: 3 GP, +1
Season Stats: Mannheim/DEL: 38 GP, 2 G, 2 A, 4 PTS, +3, 0 PIM
Mannheim II/4th league: 8 GP, 3 G, 7 A, 10 PTS, 20 PIM Read more»

Thoroughblades, Hart Beats For Charity

by Rich Herles

Kentucky Thoroughblades fans team up with Hart’s Dry Cleaning along with
their co-sponsors WVLK-AM Radio and WKYT-TV for their Twelfth Annual Coat
Drive. This drive is to help those who are in need of warm clothing and
runs from the beginning of October until the end of January each year.. All
that people had to do was drop off coats that they had out grown or no
longer used to Hart’s Dry Cleaning. The cleaners would clean them and turn
them over to the Salvation Army and any organization that needs them at no
cost. The quantity of coats that are turned in has grown to 6,000 coats a
year.

This is the second year that the Kentucky Thoroughblades Charities has
chosen to get behind this coat drive. Every game prior to Thanksgiving an
announcement asking fans to help those who are less fortunate by donating
their old coats was made and fans were told that on game nights they could
bring coats to the game and drop them of there.

That plea didn’t fall on deaf ears. One season ticket holder who is also a
preschool teacher brought that plea back to her students and their parents.
Beckey Herles told it this way. “Our House Pre-School in Nicholasville
(Kentucky) has about 120 students. Every year we have a food drive that the
school donates to a local church to be handed out to the needy, but I wanted
my class to do something as a class project. When the Coat Drive came up I
brought it to my class and they were excited to do it.” Miss Beckey, as
she’s referred to by her students, started gathering the coats that students
