Scouting Report – 2/24/17 – Derek Grant

Friday night the Amerks suffered their most demoralizing loss of the year, devastating their playoff chances. Even in the face of what might have been a season defining result; there were plenty of positives. Hudson Fasching continued his hot streak scoring two goals. Brady Austin continued to make progress offensively, adding a tally of his …

Scouting Report – 2/22/17 – Tim Kennedy

Even though the Amerks put forth their best lineup of the year Wednesday night in Buffalo, fans were still left wanting more. The return of Bailey, Baptiste, and Rodrigues was tarnished by a lack of effort and an All Star game feel. Thankfully the backbone of the Amerks this year (Linus Ullmark) stood strong with …

Scouting Report – 2/17/17 – Alexander Nylander

The play of Nylander Friday was a microcosm of his time with the Amerks. Throughout the night he showed flashes of the first round talent he possesses. But, ultimately was defined by the glaring weaknesses in his game. I am going to rate his performance a C-. After comparing his style of play with Sweden …

Scouting Report – 2/10/17 – Patrick Mullen

By Dennis Allen, Jr. Friday night the Amerks suffered a debilitating 3-2 loss to the Devils. Their third period collapse is only the latest example of the team’s inability to put together 60 minutes of good hockey. Captain Cal was by far the best player of the night for Rochester. He was a team best …

Scouting Report – 2/9/17 – Justin Bailey

By Dennis Allen, Jr. Thursday night the Sabres were dominated by a much better Anaheim Ducks team. A late rally when the game was out of reach narrowly kept them from being doubled up in shots. They were unable to contain Corey Perry who finished with two goals and an assist in this one-sided affair. …

Scouting Report – 1/27/17 – Brady Austin

By Dennis Allen, Jr. The Amerks continued to slide Friday night dropping their third straight game. During that stretch they have also managed only one goal per contest. It seems the absence of Captain Cal has had a profound impact on the scoring output of both Cole Schneider and Nick Baptiste. In what is becoming …

Scouting Report – 1/25/17 – Daniel Muzito-Bagenda

By Dennis Allen, Jr. In a defensive struggle the Amerks eventually fell to the Marlies in the 7th round of a shootout. Once again the teams top line was held without a point as Fasching secured the only regulation goal. Even though he was electric with the puck, Justin Bailey failed to find the net …

Scouting Report – 1/13/17 – Hudson Fasching

By Dennis Allen, Jr. Tonight the Amerks will feel shortchanged taking no points from their match up against the AHL’s best, Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins. They outscored the penguins 2-1 when at full strength, but surrendered two power play goals. Muse played a solid game; but if Linus Ullmark had not been opening doors in Buffalo, …

Scouting Report – 1/11/17 – Kyle Bonis

By Dennis Allen, Jr. Tonight’s game against the Hartford Wolf Pack was a huge letdown. From the first line to the fourth the Amerks played an unacceptable game. Captain Cal led the charge; he was dominated in the face-off circle and his body language was deplorable. A player slamming his stick and shrugging his shoulders …

Scouting Report – 1/6/17 – Evan Rodrigues

By Dennis Allen, Jr. Rochester was able to secure a fourth win in their last five games at home against the Crunch. Cal O’Reilly scored the lone shootout goal and the Amerks were able to hang on by the skin of their teeth. With Bailey and Fedun missing from the lineup fringe players were able …

Scouting Report – 12/30/16 – Jean Dupuy

By Dennis Allen, Jr. For the first time in four tries the Amerks were finally able to defeat the Phantoms in a 4-3 overtime thriller. After a shaky first five minutes, I was starting to get an all too familiar feeling about how the game was going to go. However, everything changed when Baptiste hit …
