  1. thanks johanlake. what are his totals and how many games are left??, please sir.
  2. Posted on: Saturday, November 20th, 2010 By Gary Lawless, Winnipeg Free Press Jordan Schroeder found himself in the difficult position of being an offensive player with just one goal. That's an uncomfortable spot. The kind that limits job security. Consider Schroeder is a little man trying to find his way in a big man's game and the lack of scoring punch had to be eating away at him. His job is to create offence and score goals. He's not gonna earn his keep as a checker, so he better kick in with the goals. The rookie Moose scored his second and third goals of the season in the third period Friday night to give his club a 3-1 win over the visiting Rockford IceHogs at the MTS Centre. The little fist pump Schroeder gave after the first goal might as well have been a sigh of relief. "That was awesome, you have to credit to (Jeff Tambellini) Tamby and Bliz (Mario Bliznak). We were making plays and not scoring and then one went in," said Schroeder. "We were close the last couple of games and finally one went in." The crafty centre took the puck off the wall on the power play and drilled a slapshot from the top of the circle that eluded Hogs goalie Hannu Toivonen at 7:02 of the final frame for a 1-0 Moose lead. Schroeder cemented his spot as first star on the night with a second marker at 13:00 of the third period as grabbed a rebound and circled behind the net to stuff the puck under Toivonen. "That's my job and what I need to bring to the team," said Schroeder, Vancouver's first-round pick in the 2009 NHL entry draft. "Hopefully we can keep it going. One goal through 16 games, you start gripping your stick. I just let it rip and it went in." Vancouver's other highly touted first-rounder, Cody Hodgson, has been hot of late and leads the Moose in goals scored. That can't have been lost on Schroeder. "I knew my time was gonna come. I thought I was playing well and getting opportunities. Cody's been playing well too and we have some good chemistry going with our lines," said Schroeder. "If he scores or if I score, we're both happy for each other. We're always talking about how to make each other better, so this is good." Manitoba's other goal came off the stick of Tambellini, who now has five goals in seven games with the Moose. Tambellini has 101 goals in 176 AHL games and continues to show prowess as an elite shooter at this level. Tambellini also had an assist and Bliznak picked up a pair of helpers as well. EDIT : I didn't like the writer bashing Schroeder about his size. What he said was true, but it read pretty poorly.
  3. Thanks for the great insight and update johan!!!
