Axel Holmström is having a great playoff so far.

06 April 2015 - 04:03 PM

Axel Holmström now has 13 points in 9 games in the SHL playoffs and is on the way to breaking the old points record by a junior which is held by Daniel Sedin.



There's been some really nice goals so far! they can be seen here: 



Pretty decent run so far, especially since he's spent much of the time on the fourth line.

Interesting article by the professor!


Give Patrick Hersley a shot?

25 January 2015 - 12:01 PM

I know we have a large group of defensemen in the AHL who are looking for a job with a big club but no one outside of possibly Sproul who can fill the role of PP quarterback in a good way so I figured I'd float this idea at least.


Why not give Patrick Hersley a look? he's a late bloomer, a 28yr old Swedish defenseman who is fairly big at 6'3, 209lbs and has an absolutely booming shot. He broke the 15yr old goal record be a defenseman in the Swedish hockey league with 24goals and he had in total 35points in 51 games, most of those on the powerplay. This year he just won the KHL allstar hardest shot competition and he currently has 15 goals and 29points in 46 games.


I don't know how he would perform defensively but he would give us a new weapon and a threat that we haven't had on the PP for a while now.


Oh and he's a RH shot too so might be worth looking at at least or what say you??
