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.

Wolf Pack Help Hartford Celebrate 25 years Of Hockey!

by Evan Andriopoulos

The evening was a celebration of 25 years of Hartford hockey, with guests of honor (in person and in video messages) spanning the quarter-century since the New England Whalers came to Connecticut in 1975. Banners commemorating the 1974-75 Eastern Division championship and 1986-87 Adams Division crown were returned to the rafters, as were the three retired numbers of Gordie Howe, Rick Ley, and John McKenzie.

All but Gordie Howe`s #9 were re-issued to Carolina Hurricanes players by Peter Karmanos in an effort to distance himself from the stormy relationship of Hartford, it`s Whalers and his relocated Carolina Hurricanes. More than 10,000 fans packed the aging Hartford Civic Center, many Whaler and Ranger fans alike joined in the celebration. There is talk of a Connecticut/New England Hockey Hall of Fame/Museum perhaps being as part of the new Adriens Landing Re-Development project.

Hartford, the home of the Calder Champion Wolf Pack has received only luke warm reception by the community and new GM Al Coates hopes this will help the healing. Although not NHL quality the Pack offers hockey in the states capital and hopefully for the good people of Connecticut and Western Massachusetts… a new arena and NHL hockey will find itself in the vacant lot at the Adriens Landing Site.

Although the Whalers were viewed as the little bothersome brother of the Rangers and Boston Bruins… many hardcore faithful packed the arena…the Whalers became the Green Bay Packers of the NHL and due to modern day sports economics or as I like to coin them “Bettmano Read more»

Tanguay and Skoula both making an impact

by Billy Gilliam
on
The Colorado Avalanche have eight starters out with injuries including Peter
Forsberg, Chris Drury, Adam Deadmarsh, Adam Foote, and Stephane Yelle.
Colorado still has the best record in the NHL mainly because of the emergence
of two young guns. Alex Tanguay and Martin Skoula. Both have made large
strides in their development from last year. Both have been counted on to
play on the top 2 forward and defensive lines for the Avs, and they have
looked stellar, not out of place like most 21 year olds would.

First lets take a look at the progression of Alex Tanguay. Ever since
Colorado took Tanguay with the 12th pick in the ’98 draft, they knew they had
a kid with star potential. They may have even more than that, as Tanguay is
dominating out on the ice with a vast array of plays such as perfect tape to
tape backhand saucer passes, blistering slapshots, and serious moves one on
one. Last season as a 20 year old, Alex put up very respectable numbers with
51 points and led the team in shooting percentage (23.0), and was also second
in rookie scoring to Scott Gomez. This season, Tanguay has 25 points in 23
games including an NHL best 11 game point streak. One reason for his success
is his improved skating. Last year, he didn’t have that breakaway speed that
is necessary in the NHL today. Now, his skating is much more fluid, and he
can really fly. Another reason Alex is on the verge of superstardom is his
hockey sense. Tanguay anticipates the play as well as anyone is in the NHL
right now. He has taken full advanta Read more»

Name            Team     League   GP   G   A   P  PIM  +/-
Jared Aulin   Kamloops    WHL     25  15  26  41   27   2

Notes: Aulin has been lighting it up this year with Kamloops. Impressed a lot
at training camp this year. Is a darkhorse to make the team next season.


Name                    Team     League   GP   G   A   P  PIM  +/-
Jordan Krestanovich    Calgary    WHL     24  16  19  35   10  23

Notes: Doesn’t get a lot of attention with the Hitmen as he is overshadowed
by Pavel Brendl, Kris Beech and Brent Krahn, however, it’s hard for
Krestanovich’s talents to go unnoticeable.


Name            Team     League   GP   G   A   P  PIM  +/-
Kurt Sauer     Spokane    WHL     23   1   4   5   33  12

Notes: A solid defensive defenseman, Sauer does not have much of an offensive
upside, but don’t boot him off the radar because of that.


Name              Team     League   GP   G   A   P  PIM  +/-
Agris Saviels  Owen Sound    OHL    24   2  11  13   10  -2

Notes: A steady two-way defenseman, Agris hasn’t been putting up the
offensive numbers like he should.


Name                    Team     League    GP   G   A   P  PIM  +/-
Branko Radivojevic   Belleville    OHL     22  10  24  34   19   19

Notes: This speedy Czech has great hockey sense and a knack for scoring.
Expect him to be a good NHLer in the near future.
