Sea Dogs’ Anthony named Boston Pizza CHL Player of the Week
2009-01-16



TORONTO, Friday, January 16, 2009 – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that forward Steven Anthony of the Saint John Sea Dogs is the Boston Pizza CHL Player of the Week for the week ending January 11. Anthony scored three goals and five assists for eight points with a plus-minus rating of plus-3 in two games.

On Saturday Anthony opened the scoring with a goal midway through the first period and he would add a power play assist later in the period for two points on a night where his Sea Dogs team would fall to the Gatineau Olympiques 4-3. Anthony was named second star of the game. Anthony and his offensive skill took off on Sunday exploding for two goals and four assists for a career-best six points in one game. One of his goals was scored on a penalty shot in the third period. The Sea Dogs took the rematch over the Olympiques 8-1 and Anthony was named first star of the game.

Anthony, a 17-year-old from Halifax, NS, is in his second QMJHL season with the Sea Dogs. He currently has 13 goals and 16 assists for 29 points in 45 games with the Sea Dogs and is eligible for the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and was recently ranked number 92 among North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting in their mid-term rankings.
Anthony was always considered by scouts to be a very talented player.. He just never showed off nor lived up to that high praise and billing previously..

Its interesting to see that trading Dido away, no longer forces him to play in his shadow, and he was CHL player of the week the very first one after Dido departure.. 8 points in 2 games shows he likes his bigger role and responsibility..

Edit: Just adding a link to the previous thread.

Dido didnt do much offensively in this game but again I was impressed with his work along the boards, the decisions he made with the puck and his willingness to get in the middle of the action. He is the definition of a steal of a draft pick and Im almost 100% convinced he will be a solid player in the NHL in some capacity.

I think he will bring a very similar game to what Chris Kunitz does for the Ducks. Can play on basically anyone of the top 3 lines and you can put him in a scoring role or a checking role and he will make some sort of impact in either.

Before we label him as a steal lets wait for him to play in NHL, shall we?

Says he is 17?

You'd expect players to show up more as they mature.

Now will he keep it up?

Marlies played a rare Monday night game and lost to San Antonio 5-3.

Robbie Earl got his 2nd of the year and Bell and Battaglia got the other goals ..

Pogge was in net for the loss..

The Marlies are in the midst of a pretty brutal road trip, they are probably running out of gas. They still have games on Wednesday and Friday and then they have to play at home on Saturday which is just like playing another road game.

Anyone think a coaching change for the Marlies will occur this offseason?

I would've preferred Dougie stayed and Gilbert left to coach the Fronts.

How is Dougie doing with the Fronts? I think it was better for Dougie to start off somewhere in major junior, then in a pro league.

I hope so, I would prefer a developmental coach at that level.

No, Gilbert's done a very good job. Doesn't matter who he loses the team stays competitive.

The Marlies have done a lot better since Gilmour left while the Frontenacs are the worst team in the OHL.

To be fair, they were the worst before he got there.

Frontenacs were 5-13-5 before Douggie arrived and have been 4-17-2 since. So he's not exactly shining as a coach, though he really doesn't have a lot to work with. (Though I am a little curious as to why moose always seems so eager to slam Gilmour)

I don't see why there'd be talk of Gilbert being replaced. There was a rough start, but the Marlies have been good of late (12-7-4 in December-January). The Marlies are certainly a step below last years team, but I think that's more a matter of a drop in overall talent than in Gilbert's coaching ability.

Maybe more a matter in losing a top goalie????

A good AHL coach is not really evaluated on the AHL teams win and loss record but rather his ability to prepare and groom future NHL talent and we see successful development of young talent..

Battaglia and Bell types scoring goals and Marlies winning games isn't how I would see Gilbert as doing a good job personally.

Tlusty, Stralman and Kulemin didn't seem to have a lot of statistical success under his guidance and Pogge certainly hasn't proven to this point that he is Leafs future franchise goalie based on his personal stats and the fact he was sitting last playoffs on the bench for most of the playoff games..

I doubt we see that happen this year. Pogge has started 30, to 13 by Munro. It's obvious who Gilbert is trusting more, game in, game out. I would like to see some better numbers by Pogge, but he's certainly the teams #1, no doubt.

never been a fan of Gilbert. even though a few callups have been ok in the NHL no one seems to have improved a whole lot under Gilbert. guys like Robbie Earl are no better than they were two years ago. Gilbert also likes to play his vets over young prospects. with the new regime in place I could see them bringing in their own guy to replace Gilbert

Saying his job is to develop players is crazy. It's a bonus if he does sure (and personally I think he's a bad coach), but his job is to win and if that means Devereaux and Bell on your top line then that's what he'll do.

We needed someone like Randy Cunneyworth who develops the young players before Anderson brought him up in Atlanta.
