    D Boris Valabik (AHL Chicago Wolves/Atlanta Trashers)
    D Vladimir Mihalik (AHL Norfolk Admirals/Tampa Bay Lightning)

    D Michal Sersen (HC Slovan Bratislava) draftet by Pittsburgh Penguins in 2004, 5th round, 13th overall. Traded to Tampa Bay Lightning for a 5th round pick in the 2009 NHL draft.

    drafted by New York Islanders in 2006, 4th round, 115th overall.

    F Tomas Zaborsky drafted by New York Rangers in 2007. 5th round 137th overall.

    The CHL

    F Milan Kytnar drafted by Edmonton Oilers in 2007, 5th round, 127th overall.

    2009 draft eligibles:
    F Richard Panik (HC Ocelari Trinec)
    F Tomas Tatar (Hkm Zvolen)
    G Jaroslav Janus (Errie Otters/CHL)
    F Marek Hrivik (Mshk Zilina/Hk Orange U20)
    F Andrej Stastny (Hk Dukla Trencin Jr.)
    G Juraj Holly (KLH Chomutov Jr./CZE)

    I think you forgot our top prospect Juraj Mikus- the forward from Skalica. He was drafted by Montreal, but not sure if they retain his rights.

    On the other Juraj Mikus- dman from Trencin, honestly I don't think he is good enough for NHL nor AHL. If they sign him, he spend most of the time in ECHL and the rest... we will see...

    I didn´t include Mikúš, because after the Habs didn´t resign him, he re-entered the draft and went undrafted. And we won´t see whether he really is a top prospect until next season when he will be without Zigo, if Palffy leaves that is. And even if he continues to be top player in SE, he will be a KHL player one day at best. I´m not saying other players mentioned here don´t have even less potential, but a team retains their NHL rights or they are draft eligible, while Mikúš is a free agent.

    Well, we´ll see about Mikus the d-men, bu from what he said it sounded like the Leafs except him to play in the AHL next year, but it´s too hard to tell before the Marlies camp even started.

    2009 Slovak draftees

    F Richard Panik, Tampa Bay Lightning, 2nd round, 52nd overall
    http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=11849

    F Tomas Tatar, Detroit Red Wings, 2nd round, 60th overall
    http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=17750

    F Radoslav Illo, Anaheim Ducks, 5th round, 136th overall
    http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=27025

    G Jaroslav Janus, Tampa Bay Lightnin, 6th round, 162nd overall

    F Marek Viedensky, San Jose Sharks, 7th round, 189 overall
    http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=17752

    Illo is the surprise pick here, though a positive one, the negative one is Marek Hrivik and Andrej Stastny went undrafted.

    Panik signed with Windsor Spitfires (OHL) on Friday. He was selected 10th overall in last year's CHL.

    From looking at those age group results are we right to think rumours of the demise of Slovakian hockey are greatly exaggerated ?

    It looks reasonably rosy to me.

    He was born sometimes in December 1996, which makes him 13 now.

    I was looking at those u17 results jaaa and while not knowing the actual strength of the opposition rosters to take the US team to a very narrow loss (and their highly touted programme albeit it being just the one game) with Klinga, Tvrdon and Bajanik cannot be bad.

    Not to mention defeating the Russian u17 side.

    Well that happened back in November, since then the same team with missing a few players with the U18 team has finished last at a recent tournament in Germany losing to all of Denmark, Germany and Switzerland, so I´m not really sure about this team at all.

    As for the win over Russia, it is actually less impressive than it sounds as this was one of the weakest Russian teams in recent memory, they even had trouble winning over Switzerland at the very same tourney.

    The game against USA probably was one of the best games of any Slovak junior teams in recent memory.

    I´m not really giving up on this class at all yet, but I´m worried that the disastrous tourney was the last international tourney for them this season and they won´t really play until the Ivan Hlinka Memorial in August.

    Yeah, aynway Marek Tvrdon and Peter Ceresnak should/could be early round picks in the 2011 NHL draft. And guys like Vasko, Mraz or Klinga seem to be intiruging prospects as well.

    However to say that our future is rosy is pushing it too far.

    Thank you jaaa for the reply.

    If you do know and I hope it's not an impertinent question in the Slovakian forum, was that Russian u17 side missing players or a full strength representative one ?

    You´re welcome. It´s definitely not an impertinentr question, we are aware that it is best to be honest about things like this. However as far as I know it was a top selection of team Russia, missing was their top 1993 born player Nail Yakupov, however their best 1994 born player Michail Grigorenko has played there.

    Tomáš Jurčo



    DOB: 28.12.1992
    Position: F
    Height: 185 cm/6´1"
    Weight: 83 kg/183lbs
    Youth team: HC Košice
    Current team: Saint John Sea Dogs/QMJHL
    NHL Draft: 2011


    2007/2008 HC Košice U18 57GP 28G 24A 52PTS 30PIM
    2008/2009 HC Košice U20 51GP 24G 30A 54PTS 20PIM
    HC Košice U18 5GP 8G 5A 13PTS 2PIM
    WJC-18 Slovakia U18 6GP 2G 3A 5PTS 2PIM
    2009/2010 Saint John 64GP 26G 25A 51PTS 24PIM
    PO 17GP 7G 9A 16PTS 6PIM


    ISS 2011 NHL Draft Spotlight:
    Tomas Jurco—RW -- Saint John Sea Dogs

    A finesse type of player, Jurco has good puck skills and the ability to find open ice to create strong offence.
    His talents have impressed ISS scouts all year long. He is relatively slight and he would benefit from bulking
    up, however he performs effectively at high speed and loves to challenge defenders with his swiftness. Always
    able to find open ice, and always sets up in proper shooting position so there's no wasted time pulling the
    trigger. Slick offensive RW is currently ranked #14th overall here at ISS.

    Scouts rave about 2011 draft class

    With this season shaping up as being the best in franchise history, the best may still be to come for the Saint John Sea Dogs.

    The Sea Dogs made it to the league semifinals in just their third year in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and, after a dip last season, won the Jean Rougeau Trophy as the regular season champions this season with a record of 53-12-1-2 for 109 points.

    After dispatching the Prince Edward Island Rocket in five games in the opening playoff round, Saint John takes a 2-0 series lead into Game 3 of the second round against the Gatineau Olympiques tonight.

    A win in the next series would vault the team into the semifinals again. With the talented roster and outstanding goaltending of Marco Cousineau, this is a very real possibility. In fact, it's no stretch to call the Sea Dogs the favourites to go all the way to the Memorial Cup. They did win the regular season championship, after all.

    Yet, this may be just the tip of the talent iceberg.

    According to the March edition of the International Scouting Services rankings for those players eligible for the 2011 NHL draft, two Sea Dogs are projected as first-round picks - Tomas Jurco at No. 13 and Nathan Beaulieu at No. 26.

    While it doesn't carry the clout of Central Scouting, which is funded by the NHL, the ISS no fly-by-night outfit. In fact, it does the European scouting for the QMJHL, has a staff of 25 and its website is linked by TSN, giving it instant credibility. The ISS has been in business for eight years. One difference between the ISS and Central Scouting is the ISS compiles a list that includes players from North America and Europe. Central Scouting keeps a close eye on those playing in North America only.

    Central Scouting also focuses mainly on the current NHL draft class.

    That's not to say players eligible for the 2011 draft haven't caught their eye. In fact, they have a list called a Futures List for what they refer to as underagers.

    Like the ISS, Jurco and Beaulieu are indeed on Central Scouting's radar.

    Some comments next to Jurco's name include: "Excellent in one on one; very good acceleration from second to third gear; must improve his play away from the puck."

    The latter critique is not a concern, said the NHL's director of Central Scouting E.J. McGuire.

    "When a kid comes in, you let him do what he does best and then teach him. You don't want to squash a kid's talent or creativity."

    The San Jose Sharks have signed 2009 7th round pick Marek Viedenský to an 3 year entry level contract. It reminds whether he will play for the Worcester Sharks of the AHL or whether he will continue his junior career with the Saskatoon Blades of the WHL as an overager. Marek was also named Saskatoon´s play-off MVP and was called up to Worchester after the WHL play-offs at the end of the season however hasn´t played in any games in the AHL.

    TALENT FROM A HOCKEY FAMILY

    This weekend at the NHL draft deffensman Martin Marinčin should be the highest drafted Slovak

    After the end of the SC play-offs series all NHL managers are already concentrating on the traditional talents selection. The entry draft will take place in Los Angeles on Friday the 25th (1st round) and Saturday 26th June (2nd-7th round). Our biggest hope should be Martin Marinčin, who grew up in the HC Košice youth system. The young deffensman was ranked 10th between teh European skaters by CSS, which might give him hopes even for the first round.

    PROFILE
    Name: Martin Marinčin
    Position: D
    DOB: 18/02/1992
    Height: 192cm/6´4"
    Weight: 82kg/187lbs
    Shoots:L
    Youth team: HC Košice



    • He competed for Team Slovakia at the 2010 World Junior Championships, as well as the 2009 and 2010 Under-18 World Championships.

    • Marincin’s goal is to play in North American next season, hopefully in the Canadian Hockey League.

    • He started playing hockey when he was six years old and he played his whole minor hockey career for HC Kosice.

    • His most memorable hockey moment was playing in an all-star game against Slovakian NHL players and his childhood hockey hero was Jaromir Jagr.

    FAVORITES

    NHL team: Tampa Bay Lightning
    NHL player: Mike Green
    Shootout move: “Fake on the goalie”
    Movie: The Hangover
    TV show: Step by Step
    Video game: NHL ‘09
    Home-cooked meal: Everything
    Place to visit: Los Angeles
    It was no accident that Martin started playing hockey. His dad was a player as well a hockey coach and his brother Vladimír (born 89´) also plays hockey.
    "We were always making sport in the family. Everythin revolved round hockey back home, so I didn´t have any other choice and I don´t regret it at all, " Martin says.

    Last season was special for him. The robust D-man has attracted a lot of attention. NHL scouts and journalists were often his company.
    "Those are nice feelings, but I still need to get better in some areas. I worked hard during last year, so I would be prepared as good as possible for the draft, " the talented hockey player continues.

    During the season Martin played in the Slovak U20 team in Púchov. Some young players aren´t hurrying with their departure overseas and their collecting experience at our rinks and the D from Košice also chose this option. "I´m glad that I stayed at home for one more season. I think that I made step forwards in a few things, but as I said, there still is a lot work ahead of me, " says the 18 year old youngster. After he played for HK Orange 20 regulaly, of course he traveled to Saskatoo for the WJC. At the end of April, eh also played at the U18 WHC in Belarus, he even captained the Slovak team. Both tounaments however didn´t work out well for our youngsters.
    "Undoubtely we could have done more in Canada. We were good enough to beat the Swiss and make the quarterfinals. In the team there was experience and leader type players, but think that the team relationships could have been better. You can´t have succes without it, " he added in a sad voice. At the U18 WHC we didn´t have such a strong team. "Yeah, but we were a great group. We lacked luck and experience above all."

    Talented youngsters are mainly watched at champioships by the scouts. However who thinks that it is all is mistaken. The whole proces is long and is well planned. The "talent hunters" follow their targerts in the long term, it was this way in Martin´s case as well.
    "During the season a lot of scouts came to look at me. Mainly they were from the Czech republic or Slovakia. However I don´t remember for what clubs they worked anymore. Some also spoke to me, they were interested about my opinions and imaginations for the futue, they asked about my goals."
    RANKINGS
    CCS EURO: 10th
    THN:34
    ISS:40
    TSN:71
    Clearly Martin attracts attention with his frame and the style he plays. He himself is clear to whom he wants to be similar.
    "It´s Mike Green from Washington Capitals. I like his game a lot. I like offensive hockey, I like playing on the PP, but we´ll see what role I will get in new team, " continued Martin with his mind already on the next season.
    He doesn´t have a dream team, but he definitely wouldn´t be against it if the team from the US capital chode him.
    "Definitely, as I said, my favourite player plays in Washington."

    A meeting with Mike Green in that case might be possible already in a few months, in Septemner there are the pre-season camps of NHL teams.
    "I would be very happy about that, but right now I´m concentrating on the draft. If Washington selected me, it would be great," Martin says with a smile on his face.

    He spent the last week in May at the 2010 Draft Combine. Yearly a hundred of potential draft picks gets an invitation and it´s part are different performance tests as well as interviews of young players with the NHL teams.
    "I arrived to Toronto on Sunday. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I had 24 interviews alltogether. The people from the teams wanted to know everythin about me. They asked me what kind of player I was, how I am satisfied with my season, what are my goals etc.," explains Martin and he adds: "After the interwievs the tests came. They divided all the players into two groups, one was in action on Friday, the seond one on Staurday. I was in the 2nd group, so I had two days off, which I spent mainly in the gym."


    VO2 Max Test -- In all, six players lasted more than 14 minutes on the most grueling of the endurance tests, led by Slovakian U-20 team defenseman Martin Marcincin, who lasted 14:15. Halifax Mooseheads goaltender Mathieu Corbeil-Theriault went 14:03, and four players went exactly 14 minutes -- South Shore forward Charlie Coyle, AIK defenseman Patrik Nemeth, Moose Jaw Warriors defenseman Dylan McIlrath and Medicine Hat Tigers right wing Emerson Etem.

    The VO2 Max Test, from wiki:

    is the maximum capacity of an individual's body to transport and utilize oxygen during incremental exercise, which reflects the physical fitness of the individual. The name is derived from V - volume per time, O2 - oxygen, max - maximum.
    During time off, there´s also a lot to see in a city like Toronto.
    "Yes, I managed that as well, I ran through all kinds of streets. It´s a beautiful city, but of course, my mind was thinking mainly about hockey," said Martin, who flied back to Košice at first and then he went to Nitra, where he is preparing for the new season. There was no room for vacation.
    "Yep, in May I had a week off and during it I found out that I´m travelling to the draft combine, so I started to train in the gym again and after my return I went to Nitra, where I´m startin with summer practise," says the young D-man, in whose voice you can hear hunger for succes, which doesn´t end with the draft.
    "Yes, I know where my weak spots are. I need to work on strength and mobility on the ice. I also want to improve my shot from the blueline and my skating abilities," says Martin.

    He plans to play in North America next season, he could play there at a farm team of an NHL club or possibly a junior team. He knows that he doesn´t have an easy time ahead. Young players overseas are ofren in hard situations. They must take care of a lot of things themselves, they must be independent.
    "I spoke about this to guys, who are playing in Canada and the US. The scouts also told me some things, so I have a general idea. Of course, I will find out everythin when I will be there. In any case, I want to play overseas," finished Martin.

    I can't wait for the draft, I am very curios where will "Chuck" be drafted...
    btw, I can't believe - the article is head-lined with "hockey family" - but they did a mistake in the article about it... Vlado is still playing!

    I must say that as of today I´m more excited about the 2011 draft, but it will be interesting to see where Martin will go as well.

    Regarding the title, I have no idea how I´m supposed to translate "liaheň". Maybe "...from family talent factory"?

    As for the part with his older brother, I was also wondering about that, I´m gonna correct it at least on here.

    But overall, there finally was a nice hockey related article in Šoprt, because hey were startin to bore me to death with all the football stuff.

    talent factory, niiice :D
    Vlado plays in Michalovce, 1. liga, had some troubles with injury last season which stopped him for about three weeks or month. I would like to see some exhibition with both of them, they are so great brothers... the only game I saw playing both was in u20, Vlado was in first defense and Martin in second.

    I like these "surprising" articles (I was a huge fan of Šport when I was at secondary high school, but when I came to college I stopped to buy it, and online Šport is not good enough, and I like every article which is about only one player, or only one team. hockey, ofcourse...!)

    Very impressive result....

    ...and not the first time either for this age group.

    Reports of the death of Slovakian hockey have been greatly exaggerated.


    I think we will be hearing a lot more about Koys, Reway, & Varga in the not-too-distant future.

    Well, you know we say "One swallow doesn´t make summer yet"...I´m not sure whether this proverb has an English eqiualent....

    Anyway, it seems these 1995 kids are living up to all the hype they got from the fans (some saying it´s the best class since 1985...)

    I hope you´re right about Koyš, Reway and Varga. And I think we´ll also hear a lot of Torok (he wasn´t amongst the goal scorers, but he is usually the 3rd forward on the top line with Koyš and Reway on this team) and Paulovič.

    On the other hand, if you talk about this way: "Reports of the death of Slovakian hockey have been greatly exaggerated. " I´m not quite sure what the result means for Czech hockey...

    Btw, talking CZE, I´d like to thank Martin Reway´s parents for moving to SVK a few years back, it seems we stole our brothers a gem right there. He was always dominant amongst kids a year older even in the Czech leagues back with Slavia Prague.

    Also, head coach Šajban who should stick with this team for the next three seasons until the 2013 U18 WHC seems like a pretty good andcapable coach for these kids.

    EDIT: Video of the 2-1 and 3-1 goals by Dr. Pablo Ramirez it seems, maybe he can give us a game report if he reads this:

    Czech republic U16- Slovakia U16 8-3
    Goals: Reway, Šoltés, Balej

    The 2nd game played in CZE went nowhere near as well as the one on Friday, however unlike CZE Slovakia was playing with a pretty different team. I have no info on this, but if all players that were called to the training camp played then more than a half of the team changed from Friday.

    Interview with Slovakia U16 assistant coach Martin Hrnčár


    What was the goal of the training camp in Skalica?
    We had a week long training camp in Skalica and at the end we played two exhibition games against the Czech U16 team. We worked on individual skill, on skating, because that´s where our biggest reserves are. Additionally we also worked on deffense systems that we wnated to et into the games.

    What did the first game against the Czechs show?
    We played only with a part of the players in that game. We had 30 skaters and 4 goalies in the training camp. 20 skaters and 2 goalies played and we wee finding out how we can compete at the international level. The game went good for us, we won 7:2, when especially on offence the boys showed great apetit and especially finishing was fantastic. We were creative, we knew how to pass, we were much better on offense. But we think that our biggest reserves are on deffene. Not only in the workd of the D-men, but also in the deffensive game of the whole team. We really have loads of work to do.

    In the 2nd game you played with a changed line-up.
    We sent some players home and we have a chance to other boys, so each of them that was in the training camp could play at least one game. So that they could show what they can and what they´re good at and on the other hand also where their reserves are in. We had 2 main problems in the 2nd game. The Czech team played physically very challenging game, they were aggresive and we didn´t do too well 1 on 1 on deffense in almost 90% of cases. Too bad that Martin Reway didn´t use his PS and a very long both two and one man advantage, where we could have done something with the game.

    Both games were absolutely different. However the result wasn´t important in neither of these games.
    Definitely, the results didn´t matter, in the first place we wanted to see how the boys react and how they can match with the opponent. We invited the boys that were the best on their teams and they were supposed to show their strengths and they showed their minuses as well. It´s the 95 birthyear and our goal is to not only know about 20 best players, but about 40 maybe even more players. If there is such a quality that all of them could fight for the NT jersey I can´t say, but we believe that there will be more players who´ll stand out. The highlight of this team begins in three years, when they´ll play at the U18 WHC and we have to work very hard in this time.

    The boys are in an age when it´s really hard to tell where and how they will end in hockey. How will you follow "your players" in their hockey development?
    Yes, today one player is very good and in three years he can be average and on the other hand a boy, who is average today can be very good in three years. The boys are growing, developing, today we can´t say that this one is a star about any of them....It´s necessary to have knowledge about the players, together with Mr. Šajban, who´s the U16 head coach, with the goalie coach Marek Milý as well as with the manager Vlado Országh we will work, talk, follow this players and above all try them out, try them out and again try them out. To give them room and chance and the harder the international games will be, the better it will be for us. Of course we will invite new players based on how well they´ll do in their teams, how they´ll deal with playing in the U18 category.

    What´s ahead of the U16 team?
    The shedule we have before the season is very tough, we have tough tournaments in Poland and Austria ahead of us and they will show the capabilities of the players. Thanks to these tourneys we will have a knowledge about the players, so we could create a team from the wide selection that will compete well at the U18 WHC in the future.
    First there´s a tourney in Poland where the older U18 teams of Poland and Hungary will play as well as the Russian U16 team, which will definitely have quality. In Austria we will meet the Czech team, again the Russian team, there will also be a slection team from Canada and the Austrian U17 team.
    We are happy that we can play with teams of such a high quality, because it will be this type of opponents that will show us where we´re at, we´ll know more about the players than if we played against weaker opponents. We have to play against strong opponents, those will shows us the positives, but especially the negatives, on which we´ll work and that the players will need to learn to avoid. That will be the most important.

    It was game of first line RW Koys, C Torok, LW ReWay. Very good game also for 2nd line, specially LW Paulovic. First two lines were unstopable, enjoying the game and some goals were scored into the empty net.

    Second game was different, Slovakia without Torok, Koys, Paulovic and some other players.

    Here are more videos:

    A much needed update

    Late -92 born forward Tomáš Jurčo has started the season with a bang, being very high among the QMJHL´s goal scoring leaders, as of today he has 12 points (8G+4a) in 9 games and is surely climbing up his way on most scout´s 2011 1st round draft lists. Also, he has earned himself a few minutes on TSN (too bad they´ve got his stats all wrong). Still, I believe he could be doing even better.

    Also with a bang, has started the season for another 2011 draft eligible forward Marek Tvrdoň, who is doing very well in his rookie season in the WHL (especially considering his English language skills, or lack thereof) collecting 11 (6G+5A) points in 10 games puts him 2nd behind Switzerland´s Sven Bärtschi in the WHL rookie scoring race.

    The third of the very notable Slovak players for the 2011 NHL draft, D-man Peter Čerešňák had started the season with Dukla Trenčín in the Extraliga, but has been sent to the U20 team in Púchov,where he plays on the top pairing, as of now he made 12 appearances in the Extraliga with no points and a +/ of -9, but the stats don´t really tell much about a player on the U20 team in Púchov.

    Two other notable players born in 1993 are still playing in the junior league- Slovan´s forward Bruno Mráz has collected 16 points (5G+11a) in 10 games and D-man Martin Gernát with 8 points (1G+7A) and a +10 rating.

    There are another two 1993 forward who are making a name for themselves in the U20 league, but the reason why I´m mentioning them later is, because they are both late births. Košice´s F Filip Vaško with 14PTS(7G+7A) and Nitra´s F Michal Krištof with 11PTS /3G+8A).

    This leads us to the two youngest players in the league.
    The absolutely youngest 1995 born forwards Martin Reway has started the season in the U18 league, but after collecting 12PTS (6G+6A) in just 5 games, he was summoned to join the junior team, he was off to a great start there too collecting 3 points in his first three games, but he was held pointless in the other 3 junior games he played.

    Trenčín´s forward Marko Daňo, a late 94 birth, is a son of a famous father and he made a name for himself already before the seasons, at an international 4 nations tournament where he was the goal scoring leader depite missing one of the games. Just like Reway, he was off to a fast start in the dorast league collecting 14PTS (12G+2A) in 7 games, which earned him a call up from the junior team. In his 4 appearances with the U20 team he got 7PTS (3G+4A), which earned him a permanent move from the U18 to the U20 team.

    Now, we move on to the U18 league.
    Co-leading here is another 95 Slovak wonderkid- F Matej Paulovič from Topoľčany- with 22PTS (14G+8A) in 9 games, considering that Topoľčany don´t have a junior team in the Extraliga, his only way for playing at a hiher level would probably be the men´s team. I guess he will stick to dominating the U18 league this year.

    Another 95 F Róbert Varga from the U18 Extraliga newbies Ružinov is 2nd in the 95 born players scoring after Paulovič with 13 assists in 11 games.

    Late 95 Patrik Koyš, who had cooled off at the start of the season with Dubnica, seems to slowly be starting to live up to his hype since he joined Trenčín´s U18 team at the start of October and after a disapointing start, he now has 12PTS (6G+6A) in 11 games.

    Special mention goes to the youngest player in the league, 96 born forward from Nitra Juraj Šiška, who has collected 2PTS for 1 goal and an assist in his 5 appearances in the U18 league.

    And, last, but not least, one of the most talented forwards in the 95 age group, Tomáš Torok has left Martin to join Czech Slavia Praha, where he plays in the U18 leaue, I don´t have the exact stats, but he has something around a point per game there.

    Future Watch: Martin Marincin
    Oilers look to develop a Slovakian star in the WHL

    Thursday, 14.10.2010 / 10:00 AM / Future Watch
    By Ryan Dittrick | edmontonoilers.com
    The Edmonton Oilers organization has undergone significant change over the past few months, particular with its organizational philosophy of improving defensive depth, size, and talent; and by doing so primarily through the draft. The team’s first round (and first overall) selection in the draft was a no-brainer to many, but the amount of picks stockpiled in the later rounds became increasingly valuable in terms of addressing needs in other, equally as pressing areas.

    The Oilers’ second pick, 46th overall, in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft turned into 6’4” defenceman Martin Marincin; a relatively unknown prospect at the time, as his development days had been spent in some of the lesser-known leagues in the European system. He spent the bulk of his young career with the Slovakian National Team and participated on the grand stage of the World Junior Hockey Championship early this year.



    The 18-year old Slovakian was attractive in the Oilers’ eyes for many reasons, but his size and poise with the puck secured a firm position in the team’s pre-draft rankings.


    2010 draft pick Martin Marincin is looking to have strong first season with the Prince George Cougars.
    Marincin has shown a tremendous commitment that’s quite rare from such a young player making a difficult transition. For years, it was his goal to come to North America immediately after being drafted so he could further expedite his development curve, as he looks to make the professional jump in short order. The sudden transformation in playing styles in Europe to North America is often a significant challenge for a young player, but Marincin has taken it all in stride.

    "In Europe, we have a bigger rink. There's a smaller rink here, so there's lots of contact, and the game is a little bit faster than in Europe. That was a little hard for me, but I've adjusted and I think I’m getting better every day.”

    As far as the situation goes, Marincin knew his opportunities would be plentiful with the jump to North America. The Prince George Cougars selected Marincin first overall in the CHL Import Draft this past summer, making him one of the most valued commodities for the Oilers organization at the moment.

    While his skills and on-ice leadership will be invaluable for the Cougars in the 2010-2011 season, it’s equally as important for the Oilers to have one of their prized prospects playing close to Edmonton.

    Prince George has provided Marincin with an excellent opportunity and he couldn’t be happier about the situation moving forward.

    "Yeah, I love Prince George so far. Lots of ice-time for me and it has really helped me grow. I think we have a great team and we could win lots of game this year."

    Marincin’s introduction to the North American game began with a bang when he participated in the Young Stars Tournament a month ago in Penticton, where he got his first taste of the NHL setting and the particulars of a new playing style. Marincin acquitted himself well and made a strong case for himself as main camp began a few days later.

    While his game still needs some seasoning and raw development time, he says the early season opportunity was a quite a learning experience.

    "Getting used to the North American game was hard at first, but the coaches really helped me. Getting to play some games was good too; I learned faster that way."

    Although Marincin still has room to grow, both physically and regarding his skills on the ice, his already established qualities have made him an intriguing prospect from day one. Due to his size and nationality, he’s often credited with the lofty comparisons to fellow countryman Zdeno Chara. While this comparison is a tad premature, Marincin says he maintains an even keel and tries not to look too far ahead.

    “I try not to think about that stuff. My goal for this season is to help the team be better than last season; to make the playoffs and win as many games as possible.”



    Defenceman Martin Marincin was selected 46th overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
    While Marincin remains focused on his personal goals, he’s not oblivious to the comparisons. He has a number of role models already playing in the NHL, meaning that he’s been given the up-close opportunity to watch his favourite players and to apply a deeper drive toward his future goals.

    "My favourite player is Mike Green. I just like the way he plays; great on the powerplay, he has a good shot, a fellow D-man. I think by watching him I can learn some more and make me a better overall player."

    It turns out that he models his game after his hero in more ways than one, while still providing that balance and offensive creativity that Green represents. A booming shot from the point is his best offensive attribute, which will be a benefit to a powerplay at any level. While he doesn’t rush the puck up the ice and become a pseudo fourth forward for the team, this portion of his game does lend credence to the Chara comparisons.

    Marincin has the unique ability of being able to control the pace of the game by showcasing extreme confidence with the puck and patience when developing a breakout. It’s a quality that’s possessed only the game’s best defencemen, meaning that Marincin has already cemented a valuable skill to the North American game – and also a missing component in the organization’s defensive depth.

    Although Marincin has only been in North America for a short while, his game has quickly transitioned well to the needed style. Poise with the puck, a strong physical game, and virtued patience all make him an incredibly dangerous player anytime he sees the ice.

    His game is improving each day and is quickly growing into something truly special; but that doesn't surprise Marincin. When asked if he was always driving towards a career in the NHL, he answered bluntly with a glowing smile that reflected his budding confidence.

    "Oh yeah. Absolutely!"

    NOTABLE

    Marincin made his first return back to Edmonton and Rexall Place when the Cougars marched into town to play the Oil Kings earlier this week. Although Edmonton came out on top 8-7 in overtime, Marincin played a commanding game and helped provide the Cougars a chance in an offensively charged matchup.

    Marincin finished the night with one goal, one assist, and an incredible +4 to help his team gain an important point in the standings.
    http://oilers.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=540382

    While everyone is boasting about all Edmonton´s young offensive stars, we´re over here are hoping that the Oilers have gotten themselves a deffensive star in the making in the last draft as well with Martin Marinčin. So far so good for him in the dub.

    Elsewhere, in the OHL Belleville´s #28 is making some noise, Mr. Pánik currently is 5th overall n league scoring with 17 points, including 10 goals, which ranks No.2 in the league. Those 10 goals also include a hattrick from last night. As you can see he´s really got some hands:

    G Adam Nagy 1993- C rated
    G Dušan Szalontay 1992- C rated

    The top North American rankings haven´t been released yet, but except for Jurčo we shoul also expect to see Marek Tvrdoň fairly high there, not sure whether he´d be an A or a B rated player. So all in all, we should expect 2 early round picks in Jurčo and Tvrdoň, one mid-round pick in Čerešňák and maybe some late round picks- if any players impress during the rest of the season, at the WJC or U18 WHC.

    One player I was pretty suprised not to see ranked at least as a C player is Košice Jr. D-man Martin Gernát, who seems to currently be one of the top D-man in the junior league.

    I expect defenceman David Bajanik could be in rankings.

    Honestly, I really doubt it. We can´t really see him play in the Q, but it seems like he hasn´t achieved anything much there yet and even has been a healthy scratch at times.

    Another big night for Martin Marinčin in the WHL as he scores 2G+1A,+3 and as he now is tied 2nd for both the D-men and rookies scoring in the dub.

    The U16 national team will have a three day training camp from Nov 6th-9th in Dolný Kubín before travelling to Belarus for their 3rd tourney in the year. Acc. to the federations website they will face Russia U16, Slovenia U16 and Belarus U17 there. However I´ve actually seen a Poland U18 roster for this tournament so I think it will be them rather than Slovenia there.
