Video: Absurd Pavel Buchnevich goal

It’s a little slow today, so I figured I’d share this video of Rangers prospect Pavel Buchnevich schooling the competition for a goal. This is obscene, holy danglefest. He should be coming over to the US next year when his KHL contract is up.

Around the Farm: Weekend/Monday round up

This was an insanely busy weekend with holidays and weddings and other stuff. Sorry I didn’t get a chance to post the ATF over the weekend, but here’s the round up from this weekend and tonight. The NCAA season is in full swing, meaning it’s just the AHL and ECHL seasons that need to get going. It’s officially hockey season across the continent.

As Rangers continue to make cuts, several prospect’s futures unclear

Have the Rangers moved on from Ryan Bourque?

Have the Rangers moved on from Bourque?

The Rangers have been whittling down their roster in the past few weeks as they approach Thursday’s season opener. Many of the players that have already been cut won’t have a future with the franchise, but some players futures have yet to be decided. With the roster due to be finalised within the next 24 hours, we take a look at a few of the prospects already down on the farm.

Ryan Bourque

After a strong end to last season and with significant turnover among the Rangers presumptive bottom six over the summer, Bourque was considered a dark horse for a roster spot. He was never a realistic option. Following his demotion to Hartford on October 1st, the small but hard working Bourque appears to have been passed by several prospects and at this stage of his career. Only a stunning season with the Wolf Pack will get him back in the reckoning and even that may not be enough. An injury call up and/or an uncertain future as trade bait appears to be Bourque’s immediate situation.

Around the Farm: Buchnevich held off score sheet again

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.

  • KHL
    • Pavel Buchnevich (Severstal, SOL 5-4): 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, Even

Around the Farm: Halverson notches third straight win

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.

  • OHL
    • Brandon Halverson (Soo Greyhounds, W 6-4): 33 shots, 29 saves
  • WHL

Cloudy futures for Kristo, Bourque following cuts

The two big names that were cut yesterday were Danny Kristo and Ryan Bourque. Both likely aren’t pleased with being part of the second round of cuts, but neither stood out over the other competition. I’m not even talking about veteran competition, I’m talking about prospects: Jesper Fast, Oscar Lindberg, Kevin Hayes, Anthony Duclair, Ryan Haggerty, and Marek Hrivik all played their way ahead of Kristo and Bourque in the prospect pipeline.

Both have their own unique situations that make their future with New York cloudy at best. Bourque, as we mentioned yesterday, is no longer waiver exempt. He will need to clear each time the Rangers send him down. Passing through now may not be a surprise, as teams are still evaluating their own prospects. Any team claiming him would need to give him an NHL roster spot or waive him again. Few teams are in a position to do that during camp evaluations.

Around the Farm: Buchnevich held off the score board in win

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.

  • KHL
    • Pavel Buchnevich (Severstal, W 5-4): 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, Even

Wolf Pack camp opens, roster announced

The Hartford Wolf Pack opened training camp over the weekend, with their first preseason game coming on October 1 against the Albany Devils. There are 30 players in camp at the moment, with more to come as the Rangers trim their roster:

Goal (2): Jeff Malcolm, Mackenzie Skapski

Defense (9): Nick Crawford, Troy Donnay, Sean Escobedo, Andrew Himelson, Dallas Jackson, Brandon Martell, Sam Noreau, Steve Spinell, Mikael Tam

Forwards (19): Tyler Brown, Mike Catenacci, Emerson Clark, Kyle Jean, Michael Kantor, Nick Latta, Paxton Leroux, Chris McCarthy, Pat Mullane, Chad Nehring, Logan Nelson, Richard Nejezchleb, Josh Nicholls, Shawn O’Donnell, Trevor Parkes, Michael St. Croix, Vinny Saponari, Justin Vaive, Andrew Yogan

Some of the names should sound familiar, as a good number of these guys were a part of the first round of cuts made by the Rangers last week. It’s worth noting that Troy Donnay is eligible to return to the OHL for an overage season, but it’s likely the Rangers would prefer he make the AHL club.
