Around the Farm: Buchnevich with four points over last two games

Pavel Buchnevich continued his torrid start in the KHL this season, notching two goals and two assists over two games (both wins). Buchnevich garnered attention last season as an 18-year-old playing significant minutes in a seniority-based league. This year, Buchnevich is showing that he not only belongs, but he can be an offensive juggernaut. Buchnevich has a line of 5-4-9 in 8 games thus far.

  • KHL
    • Pavel Buchnevich (Severstal, W 4-3/W 5-2): 2 G, 2 A, 0 PIM, +3
  • NLA (Swiss-A)

Quick note about the NLA, I can’t find an English translation for their site, so I go based on HockeyDB’s stats.

Around the Farm: Baby Rangers fall to Stars at Traverse City

The Baby Rangers kicked off the Traverse City tournament by taking on the Baby Stars, falling 4-3 in overtime on a goal by Brett Ritchie. The Rangers were up 3-1 heading into the third period with a five minute powerplay, but could not keep the Stars from tying the game. Here’s the stat line for the kids:

Around the Farm: Buchnevich with assist, 18 minutes of ice time

While Pavel Bucnhnevich may not dazzle you with point totals in the KHL (although he does have 1-2-3 in 4 GP so far), it should be noted that he is getting 15-18 minutes per game as a 19 year old in a league that has a seniority factor. Corey Pronman noted that very few players in the KHL have racked up that much ice time at such a young age.

Around the Farm: KHL season kicks off

The KHL season has kicked off, which means Pavel Buchnevich (Severstal) and Igor Shesterkin (SKA) have started their respective seasons. Here’s how each performed in their games so far this season (I will try to update on a game by game basis, but this update will have a few games lumped together):

  • Pavel Buchnevich (Severstal,KHL)
    • vs. Torpedo (L. 2-0)
      • 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, Even
    • vs.Traktor (W 3-2)
      • 1 G, 1 A, 0 PIM, +2
    • vs. Dynamo
      • 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, -1
  • Igor Shesterkin (SKA,KHL)
    • DNP in any game (served as backup in 3-2 win over HC Sochi, not dressed for other two games)
  • Calle Andersson (EV Zug, Champions League)
    • vs. ERC Ingolstadt (W 3-2)
      • 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, Even
    • vs.Vitkovice Ostrava(W 3-2)
      • 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, +1

Around the Farm: Andersson begins Champions League play

I’m going to make a much better effort to continue with the ATF posts this season. It was difficult last year due to personal reasons, but this year I’m trying to start fresh. Calle Andersson is the only prospect in action in meaningful games at the moment, and he has played in two games with EV Zug in the Champions League thus far, losing 2-1 in the opener and winning 5-2 over the weekend. Here’s how the young defenseman performed:

  • Calle Andersson (EV Zug, Champions League; L 2-1, W 5-2): 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, Even

2014 WJC: Buchnevich notches assists in win; Skjei strong in win

Both Ranger prospects participating in the 2014 World Junior Championships contributed to their teams victories this afternoon. Pavel Buchnevich (2013 3rd) had 2 assists and 4 PIMs in Russia’s 11-0 blowout of Norway. Brady Skjei was a +1 USA’s 5-1 win over the Czech Republic.

Skjei, who got comparisons to Ryan McDonagh on the air during the game, is a very fluid skater who is rarely out of position on defense. He kept his game very simple, putting pucks on net when he had the chance (the 4th USA goal came off a rebound from a shot of his that was deflected). The Rangers, according to the announce team, have been very happy that Skjei has been developing in the McDonagh mold. If you remember, McDonagh was not a noted scorer in college either.

The Russia game was not televised.

Around the farm: Struggling Pack routed by Providence

* Just a note: I know that I’ve said I will get these out daily. Had a bit of a rough start to the month. Luckily the Euro prospects are all on break. Will continue to try to get these out as much as possible.

The Hartford Wolf Pack are certainly struggling. After starting the season with five straight wins, the Pack have dropping to 7-5-0-2, including a 0-3-0-1 run. While this can be expected, since the team lost two top players (Chris Kreider, J.T. Miller) and its starting goalie (Cam Talbot), the past two games against Providence have been downright embarrassing. Two nights ago, the Pack lost 8-5, and last night they lost 6-0. This is a team that needs to take a step back and re-find its identity.
