In fact, the team's name is Toronto Roadrunners, my bad. With that being said, a few years ago, Toronto's AHL team was also named the Maple Leafs.

I knew what you meant, I was just having fun.

Will the real leafs bring put the SJ Leafs in Toronto and EDM find a new home for their prospects anytime soon? Or do SJ and the Leafs have a long contract?

Excellent. Somervuori and Svitov working together. Olvestad centering top Montreal prospects Perezhogin and Milroy! Jimmie is in Hamilton to work on his offensive game, and this line will go a long way in that regard. If he can't score with those wingers...

Nice to see Holmqvist getting top pairing. I thought he deserved it after his impressive preseason, but was afraid he get lost when the Canadiens reassigned Dykhuis and Traverse to Hamilton.

Final score: Hamilton Bulldogs 1 vs. Rochester Americans 2
HAM: Eero Somervuori (1) [Traverse]

After being off to a pretty good start, and taking the lead early in the game, the Bulldogs started playing a little shaky, and took quite a few stupid penalties. Rochester outshot the Dogs 36-15. Eric Fichaud has been tremendous troughout the game, and has been the game's first star tonight.

Svitov: He missed quite a few scoring chances. He has shown amazing strenght, and delivered at least 2 big hits. Head coach Jarvis gave him decent icetime, as he was the team's 2nd line center, playing with Pierre Dagenais and Habs prospect Perezhogin.

Somervuori: Probably the most talented player out there. He showed no signs of being nervous, as he had quite a few good offensive rushes and at some time made the opponent's defense look stupid. Showed good speed and seemed to work out pretty well with Habs prospects Plekanec and Balej. Scored Hamilton's only goal.

Holmqvist: Good overall game, but made a couple of mistakes here and there. He was paired with Francois Beauchemin, and as I said earlier in the thread, he was given quality ice time. Without being spectacular, he did his job fairly well. Good size too, should use it more often.

Ölvestad: I had been warned after he got sent down to Hamilton, this guy has excellent speed and is defensively aware, but just can't score with a roadmap. That's just what happened tonight. He and Benoit Gratton did pretty well together but couldn't score. He was used on the PK at some time with Jonathan Ferland.

edit: forgot about Ölvestad

OK, since Higgs and X both asked for a sticky so nicely, I stickied this and merged the threads. Hopefully we'll get Hamilton and Hershey covered with this one.

Thanks for the updates guys, glad to hear that Eero looks good. I had a couple people in chat the other day (who have never even seen him play, of course) telling me he'll never play in the NHL, he was a product of his linemates, etc.

A little Ex-Oceanic action last night with Michel Periard, a pint-sized dman, scoring a goal from Kolnik. Too bad it was for the Panther's farm club.

Looking forward to seeing what Hershey is able to do tonight.

The Dogs are losing 1-0 after 1 period of play. All four of the Bolts' players are playing tonight.


For those who are wondering what Hamilton's jersey looks like, here is a link... it looks like the Habs' away jersey, except, obviously, for the Bulldog.

Only a pardon by Chretien can get Willis back into the Lightning's good graces.

Next game will be on Tuesday October 12th for the Bulldogs, as they'll play their home opening game against the Toronto Roadrunners. It will be tough for me to get to watch the game, since it's at 4:00PM, but I'll give you guys my comments based on what I've seen.

Here's a link to an article wrote on Hamilton's website, after Saturday night's game. Interesting fact; Holmqvist has not played, hoping he's not injured badly. No details as of now on the Dogs website.

Henrik Bergfors update

The Wichita Thunder played two exhibition games over the weekend: a two night home-and-home series against the Tulsa Oilers, which the two teams split.

The bad news is that Berfors dislocated his shoulder in Friday night's game in Tulsa. Not sure about the extent of the injury, but reports are that the Thunder are looking to sign another d-man to replace Bergfors before Wichita's season opener this coming weekend. Looks like that probably means a lengthy rehab.

Attempting to get more details of how/extent of the injury...

Hamilton lost the game 5-3, mostly because of Fichaud's weak performance, and Toronto's late game comeback. After taking a 1 goal lead twice in the game, Hamilton got scored 3 times in the last period of play. The Dogs outshot the Roadrunners 32-19, but as I said earlier, Fichaud looked pretty unimpressive tonight and hasn't made the key saves. Duncan Milroy, Andrew Archer and Matt Shasby were healthy scratches, and all four of Tampa's assigned players were in the line up, but none of them managed to register a point. Somervuori has looked very good tonight, though.

Here's the summary of the Bulldogs' goals:

1. HAM - Benoit Gratton (1) [Perezhogin]

2. HAM - Jozef Balej (1) [Plekanec]

3. HAM - Benoit Gratton (2) [Thinel, Balej]

---------
Eero Somervuori -- 2 SOG, Even
Alexander Svitov -- 0 SOG, -1
Andreas Holmqvist -- 0 SOG, Even
Jimmie Ölvestad -- 3 SOG, +1

Eric Fichaud, 14 saves out of 19 shots

The general consensus of Wichita fans is that Bergfors is slow, uncoordinated on this skates, and can't fight. And that was before dislocating his shoulder.

Well, heck, if the foreigner can't fight there's no use for 'em here in Kansas.

Ok... finally tracked down some details on the Bergfors injury from a source that wished to remain anonymous:

Bergfors took a hit in last Friday night's exhibition game in Tulsa and fell to the ice on this right shoulder. It is presumed that the injury to the shoulder resulted from the fall. This was Wichita's second exhibition game.

While the injury is being called a 'dislocation', Bergfors will apparently undergo season ending surgery in the near future.

The skinny was that Bergfors was fighting for a roster spot, and that he hasn't been particularly impressive to the Wichita coaching staff during the course of camp. From this "non-fan" source, his skating was also described as 'slow'. And from the fight he was involved in during the first exhibition game, it was obvious that he had little skills in that area too.

He never should've been allowed to go play in that goon league. Missing a season will seriously damage his chances of ever becoming a #6/7 d-man.

Isn't Bergfors another one of Dudley's big, clumsy pylons that he liked to draft on defense?

Yup.

Dudley traded with Colorado (a different last round deal than the famed one that brought Cibak) to get the last pick in the draft and took Bergfors.

He apparently had a decent camp two years ago.
