and from Hockey Future
Victor Oreskovich A When Victor is playing hard he has a physical presence that makes him a player you want to watch on the ice. I hope he stays with Chicago all season, but something tells me if he can consistently be physical and put in full effort, he will be called up to the Canucks in the near future.
Eddie Lack B Recorded a shutout on Friday night, but let 5 get by him on Sunday against Peoria.He cant seem to get a shoot out win, but admits to be working on it in practice. Hopefully we see a bit more consistency from him as the season progresses. (2.33GAA/0.926Save %)
Adam Polasek B One of my favorite d-men on the team. He has a 0 +/- and never seems out of position.
Yann Sauve B Off to a nice start. Hes a solid defenseman and his +1 rating is tied for best on the team.
Bill Sweatt B Sweatt is a pure effort guy who you always feel is just on the cusp of breaking out, he creates a lot of scoring chances and I think hell be in the NHL in the next year or two.
Mark Mancari B Mancari has a great shot from the point (he won the hardest shot contest at the AHL all star game last year.) and is going to contribute a lot to this offense as hes 2-2-4 through 7 games. Grade moved down to B due to his -3 rating.
Matt Climie B Climies first start left a lot to be desired, but he turned away 47 out of 48 shots on Saturday night and set the tone for a much needed second win. (2.51GAA/0.939 Save%)
Kevin Connauton B Kevin has been pretty productive this year (2-2-4 through 7 games)
Mike Duco B Duco is a another pure effort guy, he flies around the ice and never takes a shift off. The points are starting to show up (1-2-3) and I think hell have a nice season if he keeps up the effort.
Darren Archibald C Scored a goal in his first pro game, plays with a nice physical edge, but it hasnt translated to a large number of points (1-0-1) through 7 games
Nolan Baumgartner C Has only played in three games at this point, his positioning and passing was good over the weekend, but hes currently sporting a -2 rating.
Sebatian Erixon D He shows flashes of nice play, but his -4 rating is tied for lowest on the team.
Dustin Friesen D Has one goal through 6 games, but has done nothing to stand out.
Jordan Schroeder D Not a bad start with 1-3-4, but his -4 rating and underwhelming play dont warrant a higher grade. Perhaps Reinprecht, a true NHL center, can act as a mentor for Schroeder this season.
Ryan Parent I Incomplete, only played in one game with 2 SOG.
Anton Rodin I Incomplete, only one game with 2 PIM.
Chris Tanev I - Incomplete, only played in one game (shutout victory on Friday). I am hearing trade rumors sending him to Phoenix, which would be a shame since he did play great on Friday.
