Scheifele joins IceCaps

Quote:
Mark Scheifeleís crazy, all-over-the-map hockey season still has some life left.

The Winnipeg Jet prospect had his junior season with the Barrie Colts end Tuesday night in a Game 7 loss to the Ottawa 67s, but the first-round draft pick is headed to St. Johnís to join the IceCaps in their push for a Calder Cup title. Scheifele, drafted seventh overall by the Jets last June, will join the IceCaps in Newfoundland.

Let's hope for a long playoff run. It'd be nice to see Mark play a significant amount of games for the IceCaps. Then in the off season he can work on his strength training and skating.

Good for him.

The Ice Caps are a scary team.

Winnipeg Jets have assigned forward Mark Scheifele to the St. John's IceCaps. http://jets.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=628701

Also from their twitter feed. Nice! Go Mark! Would be nice to find out how Telegin's doing, both for his own personal sake, and for the IceCaps.

Does that mean no Telegin?

Just have to say, that sentence about his hockey season being all over the map confused me enough to look up where St. John's actually were located. Do people even live out there?

They have some of the cheapest housing costs in Canada. Plus they drink a ton of beer

Awesome news! I'm eager to see how he does. Hopefully he gets some experience with the Caps.

You'd like it - just like Sweden! Except, smaller. And more snow. And people don't speak Swedish. Well, OK, so maybe not like Sweden.

But it's nice country - beautiful.

Sounds like the northernmost part of Sweden then.

Except Sweden is ridiculously expensive! Love it there though, I can't get enough of Scandinavia.

He sounds as determined as always. Hope he gets some good time in on a great run for the IceCaps. Going to be interesting to see how he comes back from off-season.

Nice the kid has a great attitude quoted from the article:

"Itís definitely not the way I wanted the season to end," said Scheifele. "We easily could have went all the way if we were healthy, but we did get a lot of support of young guys and some of the guys that were getting second-line minutes at the end of the year were healthy scratches at the beginning of the year. It was good to see them succeed."

As for what happens after his stint with the IceCaps, Scheifele was very clear on his goals: Winnipeg or bust.

"Thatís my main goal," Scheifele said. "Last year put a bit of a bitter taste in my mouth that I didnít get to stick all year. But Iím definitely going to work my hardest this summer, give it my all to make the team and stay all year. Itís going to take a lot of hard work, putting on weight, getting stronger and improving my game a lot. But Iím definitely willing to put in all the work to make that happen."

Telegin will not be joining the Ice Caps as per the same article:

Meanwhile, forward Ivan Telegin – also a Jets’ draft pick and a Colts’ teammate with Scheifele – will not be heading to St. John’s. Colts’ head coach Dale Hawerchuk said the speedy Russian was injured in the first period Game 7 against the 67s, tweaking his knee and needs time to recover.

If not on TV, at least tsn1290 will broadcast the games on the radio.

Will there be any way to watch the games on TV or stream online? I don't think I'd watch it over NHL playoffs but maybe if the only game on was St. Louis or some other boring team.

If the game is televised then i'm sure it will be streaming somewhere. Otherwise, 1290 should have coverage.

I literally just came here to post that I read a very interesting comment on the Free Press' site. Why not televise all Ice Caps playoff games on the TSN Jets channel? It's not being used...

There's something akin to "GameCenter" for the AHL, but it's pretty expensive - something like $40 for two rounds of playoff hockey.

Need to clarify this silly AHL rule...

Why is it Scheifele can play for the IceCaps now, but was not allowed to play for them all season?
