Scouting Report – 12/1/2017 – Casey Nelson

Although the Amerks looked the better team for the majority of the night (Friday 12/1) they fell to Hartford in a 5-4 shoot out loss. However, there was much more to take away from this game than just a point. Seth Griffith looked phenomenal in his debut, and will likely be a key piece in …

Scouting Report – 11/24/2017 – Evan Rodrigues

Friday night (11/24) the Amerks thoroughly dominated the Devils in a 10-3 victory in front of what has been the most loud and energetic crowd of the season. Almost everyone on the roster played a phenomenal game, and it seemed as if every puck off an Amerk stick was destined for the top corner. Nylander …

Scouting Report – 11/17/2017 – Alexander Nylandar

Friday’s Military Appreciation Night clash against the Wolf Pack marked the second consecutive impressive home victory for the Amerks. Though the headlines going in were all about the return of Evan Rodrigues and Alexander Nylander, CJ smith stole the show with a massive night featuring two goals and two assists. Blackwell also impressed for the …

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 …

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 …

Scouting Report – 10/6/2017 – C.J. Smith

After a long and very active offseason, the Amerks look to have taken the first step back to AHL glory. They appeared far and away the better team when facing off against the Syracuse Crunch opening night. Most notable were the performances of Justin Bailey, Kevin Porter, and Linus Ullmark. Bailey was finally able to …

Scouting Report – 4/8/2017 – Alexandre Goulet

I want to start this report off by giving a tremendous amount of credit to Alex Kile and Justin Danforth. To join a team this late in the season and enjoy immediate success like they have is quite the achievement. Unfortunately, Alexandre Goulet was not able to replicate the performances of his fellow ATO’s. Even …

Scouting Report – 4/7/2017 – Brendan Guhle

Like most in Rochester, I was very excited for the highly anticipated arrival of Brendan Guhle. It was unquestionably worth the wait. Even in a loosing effort, Guhle was the best Amerk on the ice. It’s unbelievable to see such a high hockey IQ in a 19-year-old prospect. He was rewarded with the 2nd star …
