Thanks for the updates, feisty.

 

Does anyone know what's going on with Timmins? It has been a while now, it seems.

Great to see Boucher keep his offensive game at the pro level... I know there was concern it would translate from juniors.

I know Matteau is not going to be a scorer but with top six minutes it would be nice to see a few more shots and points.

If he can keep doing it all season, it'll really be great for us. The team needs a prospect like him.

Your welcome! Hard to find any info or update on Timmins other than he's been out indefinitely with a "lower body" injury. Shame since he got off to a strong start with 5 goals and 8 assists in 12 games. Hopefully one of Albany's beat writers gets an update after this weekend.

 

I'm encouraged by Boucher's numbers so far. I was skeptical of him but I like that he has that many assist already. No idea how his defense or skating has or hasn't improved but at least he's showing he can do more than just find open space and snipe a shot.

Loved the "behiind the back "pass from Bouch.  Matteau does have decent speed/shot coming in the left side. Burlon has pretty darn good wheels the way jumps into the play. He did the same thing when I watched Albany play Norfolk.  Albany/Kincaid look pretty darn good this year.

I have gone through the Albany highlights, how does Boucher get open in the low slot so often. He must have a knack for moving from soft coverage to the net.

Really hope matteau And Boucher pain out. Boucher seems like he can be a good second line 20-30 goal scorer. I hope. I wish Whitney would get a shot up here. Fiesty, Scarlett would he be an NHL defensmen? For us at least.

I haven't seen Scarlett play an actual game, only from highlights so I can't really say. He was projected as a 2nd/3rd round talent in the beginning of his draft year but fell to the 6th, probably in some part due to playing on a bad team. He's put up nice numbers every year since his draft year and was a big part of Swift Current's turnaround in recent years. Could probably turn out to be a solid 4/5 D man if all goes well.

Scarlett is finally getting PP ice time with all the callups. The rich get richer on defense, he has excellent pedigree prior to the under 18 his draft year where he ran out of steam. It also looks like Silso is finally back to the level he was at camp.

Yikes. Scott Wedgewood with 9 saves on 15 shots.

He gets the win though as Albany scores 8 (2 by Matteau).

I don't know why Kincaid din't take over but oh well.

I don't know why Kincaid din't take over but oh well.

I wonder if Wedgewood is one of those goalies that is at their best when they see a lot of action both in terms of consistent starts and getting pucks thrown at them? His AHL numbers are a small sample size but he hasn't fared well at all, but maybe he just hasn't found his groove yet.

 

His OHL numbers may not jump out a whole lot but were solid considering the workload he had (roughly 31 shots per game or  33 per 60 minutes) in his 2 years as a starter. Last year he played on a really, really bad Trenton team so his ECHL numbers don't look that great but he was once again facing roughly 31 shots per game or 32 per 60 minutes and played a lot of back to backs. Considering how hard they rode him, I'd say he did fine as a rookie. I noticed in his sporadic AHL starts he's only facing about 23 shots per game or 25 shots per 60 minutes.

 

Of course he has to take advantage of his opportunities to earn more playing time when they arise but I suppose he just hasn't found his rhythm yet.
