  1. After being outshot 13-7 in the 1st period Hamilton outshot Manitoba 36-12 in the last 2 periods. They scored 3 power play goals in 10 tries.
  2. Northeastern is upset by Cornell losing 3-2 in Regulation http://www.gonu.com/mhockey/2009/game41.htm Steve Qualier and the Northeastern Huskies NCAA season ended today when they lost to Princeton 3-2 in the NCAA Midwest Regional Semifinal. At one point Northeastern led the game 2-0. Goaltender Brad Thiessen, the Hockey East Player of the Year and Hobey Baker Award finalist, luck finally ran out.
  3. Steve Quailer's Northeastern University Huskies (25-11-4) has qualified for the first time since 1994 to participate in the 2009 NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Championship. Northeastern University is ranked #2 going into the Midwest Regional Championship this upcoming weekend (March 28-29) at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids Michigan. Here is the game schedule: Saturday, March 28, 4 p.m. Eastern time, ESPNU No. 2 Northeastern (25-11-4) vs. No. 3 Cornell (21-9-4) Saturday, March 28, 7:30 p.m. Eastern time, ESPN Classic (TBD)/ESPN360.com (Live) No. 1 Notre Dame (31-5-3) vs. No. 4 Bemidji State (18-15-1) If Northeastern wins their game they play for the Championship Title on Sunday 29 March 29 at 8 p.m. Eastern time If they win the Championship then they will advance to the NCAA Frozen Four Tounament that will be held April 9th and 11th at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. for a chance to win the NCAA crown.

  4. Northeastern loses 3-2 in OT to University of Massachusetts Lowell in the semifinals of the Hockey East Tournament http://www.gonu.com/mhockey/
  5. Here is the article: "On Wednesday, Hockey East announced that freshman Steve Quailer was named to the Hockey East All-Rookie team." "Quailer had four goals and 10 assists in 27 Hockey East games and 10 goals and 15 assists for 25 points in 39 overall games." Source: http://www.gonu.com/mhockey/2009/awards031909.htm Very nice to see. Pacioretty last year was named to the all rookie team in the CCHA.
  6. Ranked 4th in the U.S. in mid February it will be interesting to see if Northeastern can get to the NCAA final four.
  7. Very respectable showing as a freshman.
  8. Looks like he is having an excellent rookie campaign so far. He is tied for 4th on the team with 11 pts. Definitely looks like a gem for a 3rd round pick. His team is ranked 6th in the NCAA by USA Today and USCHO http://www.ncaa.com/sports/m-hockey/division_i2.html http://www.ncaa.com/sports/m-hockey/division_i1.html
  9. He is under contract in Russia until 2010 so I highly doubt it will happen. Trunev has already a signed professional contract in Russia making good money so I doubt he is eligible. If there was a loophole Portland Winter Hawks drafted Trunev 3rd overall in the import draft so I believe they would have to give up his rights first.
  10. Looks like a wasted year (development wise) in Russia for Trunev. He has played in only 5 of 19 games for Severstal, averaging only 6:50 a game. Looks like he will be lucky if he plays in 20 games this year. Source: http://www.khl.ru/statistics/?section=team...495〈=en He should have come over to Portland where he could have played big minutes and continued his development. To think he has another year on his Russian contract too.
  11. He has played 5 games in the KHL tallying a goal and an assist.

  12. Quailer did the unexpected last year in the USHL as a rookie by tallying 49 points to tie for the Team lead during the regular season and second in team scoring during the playoffs. He was voted the Team MVP for the season and was named to the USHL All-Rookie team. He a big forward with "excellent breakaway speed and a good stride. He has good hands and shoots the puck well. He has good playmaking ability, good vision and is able to play any one of the forward positions. He utilizes a very quick release, not generally winding up but is able to snap the puck from all areas of the ice. Quailer is very strong on the puck and is able to protect in the corners." Though he is only 185 lbs, I think this guy will be interesting to watch at Northeastern University this year as he is one of the biggest (height wise) forwards on the team.
  13. Actually according to the HF article it seems his preference is to play for Severstal. If he cannot get a regular roster spot this year he will play overseas (probably in North America for a year I would expect) and then return to try and crack Severstal’s lineup. HF: Can you tell us your contract situation? MT: I can say that I am under contract with Severstal for other two years. HF: What do you think about your chances with Montreal or Portland? Do you think to play overseas in the next season? Do you plan to go back to Russia if things there don’t go too well? If yes, will you keep playing for Severstal? MT: Now I want to have a regular spot in Severstal’s roster, if things don’t go like expected I play overseas for one year and then I want to return and break Severstal’s lineup.
  14. If he does not play at Northeastern then it will be Seattle in the WHL as they own his rights.
  15. Patrick Johnson, C Do you believe in miracles? How about bloodlines? Patrick Johnson is the son of Miracle on Ice participant Mark Johnson. He also has some familiarity with an existing member of the Canadiens organization. “He’s played with [2007 first-round selection Ryan] McDonagh in the past,” Timmins said. “We see him becoming one of the more dominant players in college. He’s produced very well for a strong University of Wisconsin program, scoring 20 points in 36 games.” The Madison, WI native’s smallish stature belies a passion for the game and heart that he’s displayed throughout the years. “He’s loaded with hockey sense and he’s a warrior,” Timmins said. “He’s just a very strong competitor.” Source: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/articles/1046...8_draft_review/
  16. Steve Quailer, F “[Quailer] has a lot of raw potential,” Timmins said. “We brought him into Montreal for a mini combine [on June 2]. I’ll admit he’s pretty green, but he’s a big powerful skater and he was the MVP of his team in his first year at the USHL. “He has an agreement to go to Northeastern, which is an up-and-coming program and we know he’ll develop well there,” Timmins added. “Gene Reilly is an assistant coach there and he was our coach in Grand Rapids when I was in Ottawa. And if something changes, his rights are owned by Seattle in the WHL.” In 60 games, scored 19 goals and 48 points for USHL's Sioux City. He added 55 PIMs. Source: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/articles/1046...8_draft_review/
  17. Maxim Trunev, F “Our Euro scouts describe him as a combination of the two Kostitsyn brothers,” Timmins explained. “He was the MVP of the Mac’s midget tournament earlier this year in Calgary and he’s one of the youngest players in the draft.” Trunev, a native of Kirovo-Chepetsk, Russia, has average size and room to grow on his frame. He played with Cherepovets 2 in the Russia-3 league. The absence of a European transfer agreement didn’t scare the club off selecting the young Russian. “He’s already expressed an interest in coming to North America to play in the CHL,” Timmins said. “And we know there are numerous CHL teams interested in him. “We take the best player at the time, regardless of where they are. If we were concerned about [international hockey transfer issues] we wouldn’t have selected Sergei when we did.” Timmins said that he expects Trunev’s development path to mirror that of Sergei Kostitsyn – in terms of playing early in junior.
