Scouting Report – 3/24/2017 – Alex Kile

Rochester’s new ATO performed admirably on the left wing in his first game at the Blue Cross Arena. After finishing his senior year at Michigan with 7 goals and 7 assists, Alex Kile was quick to get on the score sheet for the Amerks, netting his first goal Friday night. Though he looked a bit …

Scouting Report – 3/10/2017 – Mac Bennett

Though Mac Bennett was among the Amerks best players on Wednesday, he did not receive a similar amount of ice time on Friday night. For that reason I am not going to assign a rating to his performance. I think he played well, but his identity as a forward still remains quite foggy. Offensively, Bennett …

Scouting Report – 3/8/2017 – Eric Cornel

Going into Wednesday night, I had very low expectations for Eric Cornel. He by no means surpassed them. I am going to rate his performance an E, for Elmira. It was made very clear throughout the night his primary focus was on playing safe defensive hockey. In my eyes, Cornel only put fourth one shift …

Steve Donner’s Thoughts on Lease Drama and HOF night

Over the past week many of us have come to realize that while PSE may be using the media to leverage a better lease and renovation deal, there also is real sense that we could possibly lose our beloved Amerks. I thought it would be useful and interesting to chat with former Amerks owner and …

Scouting Report – 3/4/2017 – Justin Vaive

Though Rochester might already be eliminated from playoff contention, they could have finally found a winning formula. Their dismantling of Sound Tigers on Saturday night was by far one of the most physical games they have played all year. I expect this type of effort was exactly what coach Lambert was looking for when saying, …

Scouting Report – 3/3/2017 – Mat Bodie

In a game tainted by a lack of overall team effort, newcomer Mat Bodie played solid. Even though the Amerks were shutout he was able to make a positive offensive impact, and defensively there were very few holes in this game. I’m going to rate his performance a P for passive. Offensively, I thought he …

Sabres Respond to Reports of Amerks Moving to Another Arena

As another lousy season heads into the home stretch and another year without a long term lease it’s time for some more rumblings and rumors about the future of the Rochester Americans in Rochester. Unless a long term lease was never reported the Amerks have been running on one year lease extensions based on the terms of …

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 – 2/19/17 – Taylor Fedun

The presence of Taylor Fedun kick started the Americans back to winning ways on Sunday night. The team is now 12-9 in the 21 games he has put on an Amerks sweater, and 9-21 without him. In addition to a great overall game, he registered an assist bringing him to 18 points on the year …

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 …
