Pavel Buchnevich was held off the score sheet for a fifth straight game. There’s not much to really fear here, especially after he rattled off six points in three games prior to this scoreless streak. He’s still a top prospect in the system, and all hopes are that he comes across the pond next year.
- Pavel Buchnevich (Severstal, SOL 5-4): 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, Even
Brandon Halverson, this year’s second round pick, has been solid for the Soo Greyhounds since his return from the Rangers. After two straight wins in which he posted a .935 SV%, Halverson led the Greyhounds to a 6-4 win over Sagniaw, stopping 29 of 33 shots last night.
Sorry about not getting this up last night, but hopefully this morning is a solid substitute.
- Brandon Halverson (Soo Greyhounds, W 6-4): 33 shots, 29 saves
- Adam Tambellini (Calgary Hitmen, SOL 4-3): 1 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, Even
After a string of multi-point games, Super Prospect Pavel Buchnevich for the fourth straight game. Clearly he’s a bust. Buchnevich now has a line of 5-4-9 in 12 games to start the KHL season. Buchnevich was the only prospect in action last night. CHL games resume tomorrow though.

Brandon Halverson continued his great start to the season, lifting the Soo Greyhounds of the OHL to a 3-2 win on Saturday night. Halverson made 35 saves in the contest on 37 shots after making 37 saves on 40 shots in his season debut. Keegan Iverson and Adam Tambellini are in action tonight, but I’m sick and may not last for the finish of those games.
Several Rangers prospects returned to action tonight following Wednesday’s cuts. Brandon Halverson was the stand out, stopping 37 shots in Soo’s 7-3 win. Ryan Mantha, Adam Tambellini, and Keegan Iverson also returned to action. With prospects returning to action, I’ll do my best to keep the ATF’s coming on a nightly basis.
- Ryan Mantha (Niagra Ice Dogs, L 3-1): 0 G, 0 A, 5 PIM, -2
- Brandon Halverson (Soo Greyhounds, W 7-3): 40 shots, 37 saves
- Adam Tambellini (Calgary Hitmen, trailing 3-2 at time of posting): 1 G, 1 A, 2 PIM, Even
- Keegan Iverson – game ended too late
- Pavel Buchnevich (Severstal, L 3-1 on Thursday): 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, -1
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.

Quick note about the NLA, I can’t find an English translation for their site, so I go based on HockeyDB’s stats.
The Baby Rangers fell to the Minnesota Wild 6-3 in the 5th place game at the Traverse City tournament yesterday, solidifying a sixth place finish after going 1-1-2 in the four games. The scoring for the Rangers was provided by their top line, as each player scored a goal. Mat Bodie had two assists as well.
Mackenzie Skapski in net.
The Rangers lost their second game in overtime last night, falling to the Hurricanes by a score of 3-2. The Rangers were able to tie the game late on a goal by the top line (Haggerty from Hayes and Duclair), but the Canes were able to win it on Trevor Carrick’s OT winner. The lines for tonight’s game were shaken up a bit, but that top line did remain in tact:
Brandon Halverson in net.
Richard Nejezchleb was a scratch for the second straight game. Check after the jump for the stat line.
Adam Tambellini netted the overtime winner last night against the Baby Sabres in Traverse City, as the Baby Rangers got their first win of the tournament.

Mackenzie Skapski was phenomenal in net, turning aside 36 shots.
