When the Chicago Blackhawks traded Ryan Hartman in Nashville during the application period for the NHL, most fans focused on the fact that the Nashville Predators gave Hawks their first round in the upcoming project.
In the short term, however, it seems that we should pay attention to the actual player Hawkeye purchased from Predators: Victor Eidzella.
Ejdsell, a 6-foot 5, 214-pound forward, was on fire for Rockford in the Caldera Cup playoffs, and he scored a scoring goal on Wednesday night for IceHogs in his 4-1 victory over Manitoba in BMO Harris Bank Center.
IceHogs top the best of the seven series 3-0 with Game 4, set on Friday in Rockford.
Ejdsell, who played six games at the end of the season for the Hawks, gave IceHogs a 2: 1 lead at 7:33 in the second period when he cut a shot of about 50 feet by beating Manitoba goalkeeper Eric Comrie.
“This is a recognition of how important each situation is in 50-50 years, which is going to form the next 20 seconds of its change,” said Coliton. “If he wins, he will play in the offensive zone. And if he does not, then he will have to defend himself, and it’s not so fun. ”
Edgel is still getting used to the smaller North American ice surface, where less time for games. He admits that there is still a ton to learn.
“I need to tense up and fight,” Edgdell said. “I need to practice more and notice what is happening there, and learn from it.
“It’s different from European hockey, and that’s what I’ve played all my life. Every game we play is a bonus for me. ”
Manitoba scored the first goal on Wednesday on Wednesday, which means that Rockford fell 1-0 in five consecutive games.
IceHogs, however, tied things up when Tyler Sikura scored in a power game at 6:26 of the second period. He scored in a wide open net after Comrie allowed a juicy rebound Adam Blending explosion.
“I was lucky that I was in the right direction, he came to me, and I knocked him home,” Sikura said.
William Pelletier made the score 3-1 with 6:08 in the game, pushing home an excellent pass because of Anthony Louie’s net. Matthew Highmore made the score 4-1, scoring in an empty net with a remainder of 1:14.
Colleen Delia made 37 saves and stopped 204 of 214 shots in the postseason.
Now IceHogs will try to hold the second direct team and go to the final of the conference.
“We are in a good place, but every game is new,” said Coliton. “You have to start all over again … We can not win the next one, even if (if) we will be better (that night).
“But have the right approach, compete very hard and hamper them night after night. This will be our approach on Friday. “
