I thought he was pretty solid defensively. Offensively, he had a could really good pinches from the point... and a good shot from the point. He's much more physical then from what I saw of him in the AHL. He makes the simple plays and his passes are precise.

Hedin played 20:19 (3rd) against Philadelphia and had 3 shots on goal (2nd).

EDIT: Though Pierre only has 1 assist in the two games, he's been a key player on 3 of the Maple Leafs last 5 goals. One today, he kept it in at the point which led to the Joe Nieuwendyk goal. Dumped it in from the point into the corner and that led to Bryan McCabe's first goal against Calgary. And got a shot through from the point and Nikolai Antropov picked up the rebound (assist).

No problem.

OT: Mikael Tellqvist made 45 saves tonight in the AHL... looks like he's also doing well.

Pierre played 18:00 tonight.

Made a couple great defensive plays... very physical for a smaller guy... he was the only defensman on the Leafs to actually take the man infront of Belfour. Finished his checks and had a great chance to score. Not much offense from the team, Pierre seemed to be trying to create some, jumping into the rush on a couple occasions.

IMO, he's been the most consistent defenseman over the last 3 games. McCabe's had his moments of greatness (vs. Calgary), but Hedin has probably made 1 mistake over the 3 games that led to a great opportunity for the opposing team (pinching vs. Calgary, Donovan goal).

Kaberle may be back by next week and I'd be shocked to see Hedin in the AHL.

No.

I've kept an eye on him for every single minute he's played... :p ... and he's been great.

IMO, if this is the true Pierre Hedin, it makes Tomas Kaberle expandable. Similar styles... except Pierre finishes his hits and makes the easy plays with the puck.

Pierre Hedin will sit tonight as the Leafs take on the New York Islanders.

Carlo Colaiacovo (top prospect) will start. Richard Jackman will also sit.

I think it may be because Pat wants to give Carlo a chance to play as he's been one of the top defenseman in the AHL all season. Tomas Kaberle will play tonight. I expect one of Hedin or Colaiacovo to be sent down within the next 4 days... it will most likely be Colaiacovo as Hedin's been solid every game he's played.

In: Colaiacovo, Kaberle
Out: Hedin, Jackman

Hedin has an "undisclosed injury".

Quinn's famous for keeping some injuries secret, he says that it's (the injury) is in a spot where opponents may target.

Jesus, Moses, Abdullah!

Anyways... Pierre's been injured lately and has not played in the last 2 games. In place of him, Carlo Colaiacovo has played, and very well I might add.

Tonights blue line (speculation by me)...

Bryan McCabe
Tomas Kaberle
Ken Klee
Karel Pilar
Aki Berg
Carlo Colaiacovo
Richard Jackman


Bryan Marchment may sit with an injury that happened at practice yesterday, but Quinn doesn't like playing 2 rookies on the backend.

gph,
i saw the Leafs home-and-home versus Philly last week and Ric Jackman looked horrendous in both games to me (although not as bad as Marchment, especially in the 2nd game). is he on a one-way contract or something? if not, shouldn't he be sent down in Hedin's stead if such a decision must be made at some point? I thought Pierre was much better in both ends. i don't see Jackman bringing anything to the table Hedin doesn't... except maybe a heavier shot. has he played badly all year (jackman, that is)?

He's been mediocre in every game he's play with the Toronto Maple Leafs. I think Pat Quinn's giving him some time to make a case for himself, but it seems that everytime he's out there he makes a mistake.

The only games he shined, were against Jokerit and Farjestad.

Hedin has an injury which the Leafs have not made public to where... but it really looks like Jackman's done. If it comes to Colaiacovo playing 10:00 a night, he'll be sent down because he's in that development stage, unlike Hedin.

Marchment's been pretty mediocre as well, but he brings that playoff experience and is one of the two defenseman that opponents fear coming over Toronto's blue line. He'll be playing as the team's #5 or 6 defenseman.

IMO, I believe Colaiacovo will be sent down... he's played well, but his positioning's been off, just because of his age. Hedin will stay up... and Quinn'll send Jackman down, he'll clear waivers. No team wants that.

Pierre has been placed on the IR because he was hit in the throat with a stick.

He may be out for a week... possibly more.

He participated in todays skills competition, so it looks like it's not that serious.

He may be back in 3 or 4 days.

He's been returned to the AHL.

Not because of his play, but because of Carlo Colaiacovo's solid debut and the return of Ken Klee.

Too bad. Hopefully he'll be back and play some more games with Toronto this season.

Yes.

And I hope Ferguson does something about Ric Jackman... he doesn't deserve to play in the NHL.

Pierre Hedin's been selected to replace New York Prospect Fedor Tjutin at the annual AHL All-Star game.

He will represent PlanetUSA.
