Where in Russia? I've yet to hear of him signing a contract with anyone...

Peter Aston got kicked out from Ässät. He is now looking for a new team. He was a real disappointment, especially on defensive zone. He got rounded too easily and positioned badly etc. However he was planned to be a attacking defender, but 3 points is a way too little for that role.

Just out of curiosity ... I've heard tons of great things about Derrick Lapointe and havent heard of any flaws in his game. I was wondering why he was drafted so late in the draft? What are his weaknesses?

Well im guessing one reason may be that he wasn't playing at a very high level. Whilst most of the top prospects where playing in college, CHL, USHL or Europe LaPoint wasn't.

How's Franklin MacDonald been playing for the Amerks...

I'm looking for opinions and analysis here. I know his stats...so what do you all think?

Interview with LaPoint:

http://www.areavoices.com/undhockey/

"Originally projected as a high second-round draft pick, LaPoint fell to the fourth round in June's NHL draft. The biggest mystery surrounding LaPoint was the level of competition. Wisconsin high school hockey isn't a hotbed for NHL scouts and questions were raised whether LaPoint could compete at a higher level.

After a month in the USHL, LaPoint is answering all questions."

It is sounding like Craig Anderson's leg injury is worse than expected and will not dress this weekend. Ryan Miller will not play this weekend due to injury and Adam Dennis has been called up. That said Pelletier will see action tonight against Bingo.

Amerks with another win last night. Pelletier stops 28 of 30 shots and was named third star of the game.

They have a big game on Sunday at home against Chicago who has won 8 straight on the road.

Dan Collins

Broke out of his scoring drought with five points over the weekend in leading the Plymouth Whalers to 3 wins. 2 goals and an assist on Sunday.

Another win for the Amerks with Pelletier solid in the net, stopping 33 of 36 shots against the highest scoring team in the lead. Amerks end the Wolves road win streak with a 7-3 victory.

I believe that Craig Anderson will be back at practice this week.

Sprukts now with 12 points in 11 games and +3, still only 3 goals. Third on team.

Drew Larman 5 goals 7 points in 11 games, +3

David Booth 6 points, +5 in 12 games

Jacina 4 goals 5 points in 9 games, even

Stewart 5 points 11 games, even (looks like he's finally gotten the message and picking up with 3 points in the last 3 games - how's he looking pelts?)

Rob Globke 3 points 8 games even

Martin Lojek 3 assists, +12, 11 games (3rd in AHL in +/-)

Stefan Meyer goal, assist in 6 games, +1

Franklin MacDonald, 2 assists, even in 9 games

Kamil Kreps 1 assist, +1 in 7 games

Craig Anderson is #1 in the AHL in save% at .959 (but only 4 games) and has won all 4 starts prior to his recent injury - hopefully he keeps it up upon his return

Pelletier is 13th in the AHL at .917, but has also won all 4 appearances.

Incidentally, after the miserable season last year, the Amerks are currently #1 in the AHL with a 12-1-0-0 record.

Hopefully once Anderson returns Florida finally trades Pelletier. He had a great camp and has played extremely well. He certainly shouldn't be relegated to being a 3rd stringer in the AHL.

New article on the Panthers goaltending pipeline:

http://hockeysfuture.com/article.php?sid=9197

Quote:
While they sort out the near-term, the Panthers have a handful of potential prospects developing within their organization. None of the veteran goalies are inked to any long-term contracts, which means a home-grown netminder could be just a year or two away from making an impact.

It appears that Anderson is ready to go and will start tomorrow night for Rochester.

LaPoint scored the only goal in a 4-1 loss in the USHL. Now has 7 Goals, 10 assists for 17 points in 12 games.

Frolik hasn't produced much recently. Infact Rimouski have been awful for the last 4 games. I don't think they have scored 5 goals in their last 4 games.

Amerks now have won all but one game.

Yeah I saw that, plus they seem to be playing against some of the top teams lately, i.e. Quebec, and then that top prospect Nicola Riopel who's been great just last night, only scoring one. That team is horrendous and it happens when the team is struggling.

Brian Foster

Hey guys. I'm a Devil's fan and I go to UNH and I just wanted to say...Brian Foster started his first game for us tonight and was spectacular. He's a big kid (6'2" I think) who is a butterfly but still takes up most of the top of the net when he goes down. We played UMass-Lowell tonight and dominated for most of the game but I think we were actually outshot. I'm happy he got his first shutout and if he keeps playing the way he did tonight, you guys should keep an eye on him cause he's legit.

He's also in one of my history classes and he's a good kid.

Just so long as he doesn't beat Vermont, I'm happy to hear that

I hope he's a smarter student than Tim Thomas was - I was in an English class with him (an easy A type class I might add), and he participated in class a lot - by asking some of the dumbest questions I've ever heard.

Thanks for the insight on Foster!

But, I've gotta ask, does he solely rely on his size to defend the net, or does he have excellent glove skills, as well?

Also, how's his rebound control? Obviously, after several years with Luongo and his size and butterfly style, rebound redirection was something he had a particular weakness with.

darn... i forget we had a prospect playing for unh. that game was on pbs here and i watched a bit but completely spaced on foster (and i was the one who just posted the hockey futures article about the panther's goaltending pipeline). king bergfors - if you have the time to post ocassionally to the prospect tracker thread, that would be great. i'll try to remember to keep an eye out for the unh broadcasts as well.

Looks like Kreps has picked it up, Stewart to an extent too.

His skill benefits from him size, yes, but he's got a good glove and a really quick blocker. There were times last night when Lowell would get good hard shots from down low and he'd match them with either. A couple of times he would give up some rebounds off of pad saves but that was only a couple of times and the rebound went right to a defenseman. For his size, he's really good at getting back in position and getting in front of shots.

michaels87, I'll try to pay attention to him as much as I can but no guarentees, cause Kevin Regan is still the #1 guy around here.

Frolik

Any word on how he is developing the the NA style in the Q? Will he be part of the nhl roster next year or still raw?

thanks
