Stockton Heat Updates [2016-2017]

Recommended Posts

And if you noticed, Poulin is a big part of that.  It also helps when you regularly shoot 40+ shots every game.  Very few time are they held to below 30. 

 

 

Even when they were losing they were generally still putting that many shots on net and from what i've heard were often the better team. Thats going to happen though when you lose as many goalies as they did and you have a pretty young d core.

Yikes!

 

Injuries abound in Stockton.

 

Johnson, Kylington, & Smith out day to day with upper body injuries.

 

Arnold is out week to week with a lower body injury.

 

Now, Grant is out indefinitely with a fractured jaw sustained in practice.

This is why we can't have nice things.....  Arnold just having a rough time, I don't think it's the same injury so at least it's not like it is a nagging propensity to be injured in a particular way, much like Bouma.  It's probably a silly question but for someone who hasn't sustained any sort of break or fracture, how bad is a jaw fracture? Obviously a broken or shattered jaw is brutal (See Hamhuis), I guess it would depend on the severity of the fracture correct?

Normal healing time is 6 - 8 weeks.

 

No solid food for the first week or two.

 

Crap...  :(  so pretty much his season is done and we probably won't get to see him until next season, that is depending how the team looks post TDL.

Heat made a trade today. AHL trade only so this has no impact on the Flames but they picked up Yann Sauve. Only found this interesting because he was quite frequently mocked and linked to the Flames in the 2008 draft with their first round pick. Funny how things come full cicle sometimes.

 

With the Heat having a pretty young blueilne I think a AHL veteran presence like this will help. 

 

The #AHLHeat have acquired D-man Yann Sauve from the @PortlandPirates. Welcome Yann! http://bit.ly/1Yolcwv

Pretty solid pro debut IMO. I tend to like Schneider more becuae I think its a really cool story but he is quite talented and a nice depth piece to have.

I thought he was quite impressive in the prospect tourney. A .919 save % is nothing to scoff at in a pro debut.

Seems to me clubs are so hestitant to draft goalies that gems always slip through. Not saying he will be the next coming of price or kipper, but he could be a good one for going undrafted.

Schneider is 2-1 with a 2.02 GAA and a .940 save % through his first 3 pro games. Small sample size, but it is an impressive start for the 18 year old.

Janko has looked really good in his debut.  He's already got his first point, and Huska has nothing but good things to say about him.

 

3:16 - Janko's first professional assist

Stockton just won in OT to keep their playoff hopes alive. I am not 100% sure how the playoffs work in the AHL, especially with teams in the Pacific playing less games than everyone else.

They go with win %.  There is the possible cross-over (I think it is Charlotte that possibly could be in)

So a possible top 6 and top 4 next year

Mangiapane-jankowski-nylander

Poirier - grant - hamilton

- kylington - Anderson

Kulak - Morrison

Though Grant should really be in the NHL

Grant is a UFA. I'll be very suprised if he agrees to stay in Calgary and play in the AHL. He is looking for an NHL opporutnity.

If I had seeen some production out of Grant, I would have been more keen on re-signing him.  Points leader on the Baby Flames with less games played.  Just can't seem to put it together in the NHL.  Maybe a new NHL coach would help him, but I don't know that there is any room for him on the roster.  

 

It's hard to hold a spot for someone that doesn't score.  He battles hard, but you have to choose between him and a player like Jooris.  Jooris has produced at the NHL level and could become a valuable depth option for the Flames.  Grant, I'm not so sure.

There are some players who just play better in the lower leagues that can't translate it to the bigger game. They have skill, yet other guys with less success in the A, make it in the NHL.

I don't think Nylander would be eligible to play in the AHL next year, would he?
