2019/2020 Stockton Heat Season

Recommended Posts

Felt like perhaps it was maybe to move past a 3 year old thread....

 

Stockton announces it's opening night roster. No surprises, but potentially newsworthy is that Gaudreau's brother is not on it. 

 

 

 

Quote

 

Forwards (15): Dillon Dube, Byron Froese, Alex Gallant, Glenn Gawdin, Justin Kirkland, Ryan Lomberg, Mason Morelli, Alan Quine, Matthew Phillips, Luke Philp, Martin Pospisil, Zac Rinaldo, Buddy Robinson, Adam Ruzicka and Eetu Tuulola

Defensemen (7): Brandon Davidson, Rob Hamilton, Zac Leslie, Andrew Nielsen, Corey Schueneman, Rinat Valiev and Alexander Yelesin

Goalies (4): Jon Gillies, Tyler Parsons, Nick Schneider and Artyom Zagidulin

There is a lot of skilled forwards on that team. I expect Gawdin and Phillips will take big steps forward this year, they looked very confident in training camp. 

 

I also expect Ruzicka and Pospisil to start slow and they get used to the pros, but will start to show their talent towards the 2nd half of the season.

Funny because I thought the season had started with the home and home against the Baby Oilers.

We lose two goalies and the season hasn;t even begun.

Wow.

Maybe DeSmith is available.

Hard to script a better start to his NA career for Zagidulin. Been pretty impressive from Day 1 and now off to a 2-0 start with a 93.8 Save % in the AHL.

Eetu Tuulola with a hot start to his NA pro hockey career. 

 

4 points in 6 games. 3 goals and 2 of them have been game winners. Good start for a guy who had a so/so camp.

Strangely enough, he is starting to play better than the last few years.

 

 

I know very little about him.

What type of player is he? Shifty offensive guy like his brother?

Sucks for Phillips but nice reward still. Cool for Gawdin and nice ascension for an undrafted free agent.

What a season this has been for the Heat. 2 pts back of the best record, multiple prospects having big jumps from last year, and a team that is not full of AHL veterans like most of the teams around them. 

 

Cail Maclean deserves a lot of credit for this. Treliving said when they hired him they thought they had something and he may be right. Really impressive work, especially behind a blueline that really isn't very good.

Heat are in a fight for the playoffs after a bit of an up and down February. Dropped 2 straight n, where a few weeks ago they were close to the top of the AHL.

 

On a good news story, several rookies have good February and are starting to crank it up. 

 

Ruzicka - 3 Goals and 9 points in 12 games

Luke Philip - 3 goals and 7 points in 12 games

Eetu Tuulola - 2 goals and 7 points in 11 games

 

Nice to see them give the younger players more opportunities late in the season.

I question the sitting of Kylington after playing most of the season in the NHL.

If they are bound and determined to not play him, why not send him down to get some reps.

I get the part about him not earning NHL pay, but he's going to be useless if they don't start using him somehow.
