O`Brien with only 1 hit tonight But i wonder if the hits stats are relevant in QMJHL. It shows that team overall hits were 8 to 5. There`s obviously something wrong (huh). But, well, ussually O`Brien at least was the biggest hitter in every game.
He also got +2 rating and asisted on empty netter to win the game 4:2 agains Voltigeurs.
There's a clip in the Belleville/ Plymouth highlights that really shows Rakell's physical dominance. He intercepts a pass inside his own blue line, beats Bulls OA d-man Stephen Silas in a footrace for the puck and then carries him on his back to the net for a good chance on the backhand. Rakell then gets a second chance on the rebound while falling to his back, really impressive play. It starts at about the 1:30 mark of the highlight package, which should be on both team's homepages and the OHL main site.
is there anywhere i can view all the ducks' prospects stats without having bounce to several leagues and several team pages?
I recall we had someone on this board that would list all of our prospects in a nice and tidy chart. Too tired to look right now it's almost 1 am here. If I remember, I'll try to look for that person/chart myself.
Like that little section. One part makes me happy. Kyle Palmieri's best AHL season vs Bobby Ryan's
KP: 51GP 33G 25A 58PTs
BR: 48GP 21G 28A 50PTs
Another interesting facts: these seasons were both 3d seasons after the draft. If you compare their first WJC after the draft, Bobby have 7P in 7G, while Palmieri 9P in 7G. Next year Palmieri had 6P in 6G, while Bobby didn`t participate in any other WJC.
In their best (current) AHL seasons they also spent some games in NHL. Bobby got 10P in 23G while Kyle got 7P in 18G. The next season Bobby got 19P in 14 AHL games, and never looked back. Let`s see how Kyle does this season in AHL.
When we let DSP go to the WJC (and get injured) last year, I can't see why Lindholm shouldn't get his chance as well.
It was only because we were almost lost a chance to participate in playoffs. I cant see any other reason. Because he really really wanted to participate and represent his country? ... yeah, sure, how sweet! If we`d have 10 points more at the time, i bet he wouldn`t be released. Also he was sent to get his confidence back.
