Scouting Report – 11/15/2017 – Colin Blackwell

Wednesday marked the Amerk’s first shutout victory of the year. And while Linus Ullmark did play fantastic, the story of the night was the 60 minutes of clean, conservative hokey played by the Amerks. Rochester took an early lead scoring two power-play goals in the first four minutes. It was a stark contrast from the …

Amerks Erased Two Goal Deficit Before Losing in the Shootout

The odds were stacked against the Amerks on Saturday night down by two goals off of a couple of bad bounces and they were having penalty problems all night but they did what they’ve become good at, keeping their heads up and finding a way to come back shift by shift. (Photo Credit: Utica Comets) …

Scouting Report – 10/28/2017 – Kyle Criscuolo

In what was a reversal from the previous night (10/27) in every way, the Amerks played two great periods of hockey, but let a win slip away with a disappointing third period. As it should have been, playing a complete 60 minutes was a major theme in the post game press conference. Although it was …

Scouting Report – 10/27/2017 – Sahir Gill

On Friday night (10/27), for two periods the Amerks looked exactly like like a team that was dominated in consecutive appearances on home ice last weekend. By the end of the first two frames, the Amerks had officially been outscored 14 to 6 while on home ice. Fortunately, what followed was a magnificent 3rd period …

Scouting Report – 10/21/2017 – Adam Krause

If one thing is certain, it’s that the Amerks will welcome the chance to face off against a team other than the Comets. For the second time in a row Utica completely outclassed the Amerks in their home building (on 10/21). Most evident were the teams shortcomings on special teams. Rochester went 0-6 on the …

Scouting Report – 10/20/2017 – Steve Moses

After the Friday morning gameday skate, Brendan Guhle said it was key for the Amerks to start fast. Hopefully tonight they can focus on 60 minutes of good hockey instead. After getting out to an early 2-0 lead, Rochester surrendered five straight goals agains a very good Checkers team. Charlotte did a phenomenal job applying …

Scouting Report – 10/13/2017 – Hudson Fasching

Friday night the Amerks played a very underwhelming brand of hockey against the Comets. Zone entry was once again very sloppy, and they weren’t able to dig pucks out well either. Chemistry continues to be an issue for this new roster, and swapping Baptise and Moses on the first two lines only seemed to worsen …
