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 …

It’s finally arrived. After yet another LONG summer we’re now on the cusp of opening night and while several previous seasons have yielded some good free agent signings – this summer was outstanding. There’s three reasons to be more excited about this season than previous ones: depth, attitude and coaching! Depth A quick look at …

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 …

Scouting Report – 4/5/2017 – Hudson Fasching

Hudson Fasching continued his strong play on Wednesday by netting a goal in the 5-2 victory against the Senators. His work rate was excellent, but after watching him I feel he still has plenty of work to do before he can effectively play at the next level. I am going to rate his performance a …

Scouting Report – 3/31/2017 – Casey Nelson

On Friday night I was absolutely awestruck by the performance of Casey Nelson. His struggles have been well documented this year, and before puck drop I thought there was a chance of handing out my first F. Instead, Nelson put together the best 60 minuets of hockey I have scouted this year, earning my first …

Scouting Report – 3/26/2017 – Justin Danforth

Sunday’s rematch against the Thunderbirds was just as good as the first tilt. Derek Grant stayed hot registering his 6th goal in 3 games, and Linus Ullmark recorded his first shutout of the year. Even though playoff aspirations are a distant memory, it was nice to see the team play with pride this weekend. Their …
