Jewps/Jice update, Weekend-plus

Posted on: April 4th, 2017 by Ron Kaplan


If Omri Casspi was hoping to exact a measure of revenge against the Sacramento Kings, he came away disappointed. He score just four points and made two rebounds in 12 minutes off the bench on Saturday in a 123-117 loss to the visiting Kings. In his next game — a 110-109 nail-biter against the visiting Portland Trailblazers, Casspi played another 12 minutes but scored just one point to go along with one rebound and two assists. According to some reports, he’s getting used to playing with a new bunch of guys. Must be difficult, learning new systems. Remember, this is his third team this season. But he has hope.


Josh Ho-Sang Michael Cammalleri returned to action for the NJ Devils in Friday’s 2-1 loss to the host NY Islanders. he took one shot on goal in 13:38 of ice time. Josh Ho-Sang (right) picked up his sixth assist in the second period on what proved to be the game-winner. he took three SOG in 16:35. Two days later he notched his fourth goal in a 4-2 win over the host Buffalo Sabres in 14:59 TOI. Cammalleri took another three tires in Saturday’s 3-0 loss to the hist Philadelphia Flyers. He played 14:25 in that one.

On Saturday Jason Demers took two SOG in 17:30 as the Florida Panthers lost to the host Boston Bruins, 5-2. Zach Hyman took one SOG in 17:19 as the Toronto Maple Leafs held off the host Detroit Red Wings, 5-4. Jason Zucker was a scratch with a lower body injury in the Minnesota Wild’s 3-0 loss to the host Nashville Predators. he would also miss the Sunday game against the visiting Colorado Avalanche that resulted in a 5-2 win for the Wild.

Hyman took two SOG in 15:10 for the Leafs last night in their 4-2 win over the host Buffalo Sabres.

Jice update, March 31: Some in, some out, some undecided

Posted on: March 31st, 2017 by Ron Kaplan

Josh Hu-Sang played 16:06 in the NY Islanders 6-3 loss to the host Philadelphia Flyers.

Jason Demers took one shot on goal in 20:09 in the Florida Panther’s 6-2 loss to the host Montreal Canadiens.

Zach Hyman played 19:24 in the Toronto Maple Leaf’s 3-1 win over the host Nashville Predators.

Jason Zucker took two SOG in 15:10 in the Minnesota Wilds’ 5-1 win over the visiting Ottawa Senators.

With a little more than a week to go

  • Definitely continuing to the post season: Minnesota
  • Still in contention: Toronto, Islanders
  • Out of the Running: Michael Cammalleri and the NJ Devils, Florida

Jice update, March 29, 2017: Zach Hyman

Posted on: March 29th, 2017 by Ron Kaplan

Zach HymanZach Hyman, right, assisted on the first goal for the Toronto Maple Leafs and provided what provided to be the winning goal in a 3-2 decision last night  over Jason Demers and the visiting Florida Panthers. That gives Hyman 10 goals and 18 assists on the year. Demers contributed an assist on the Panthers’ first goal; he has 18 assists to go along with nine goals. The Leafs are in the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference with a record of 36-24-15, their best showing since the 2013-14 season when they were 38-36-8. The Panthers (33-32-11) are on the precipice of elimination.

Jason Zucker took two shots on goal in 18:21 of playing time as the Minnesota Wild lost to the visiting Washington Capitals, 5-4. The Wild are in the playoffs with a 44-24-8 mark.

Finally, from CBS Sports:

Michael Cammalleri (shoulder) could return [for the NJ Devils] for a road match either Friday against the Islanders or Saturday’s game opposing the Flyers, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

The point-packing winger is progressing well based on his newly acquired injury status of “day-to-day.” Cammalleri has missed the past 13 games with his injury, but the Devils have been eliminated from playoff contention and therefore have no reason to rush him back.

The Devils lost to the visiting Winnipeg Jets last night, 4-3, in a shootout. They are last in the East at 27-35-14.

On Monday, Josh Ho-Sang, the newest Jice-man, took one SOG in 18:56 for the NY Islanders in their 3-1 loss to the visiting Nashville Predators. he has three goals and five assists in 14 games. At 35-28-12, the Isles have a slim chance of making up enough ground to sneak into the postseason.

Jice update: Welcome to the NHL, Josh Ho-Sang

Posted on: March 16th, 2017 by Ron Kaplan

Josh Ho-Sang was brought up by the NY Islanders on March 2. Although he’s played just eight games, the 21-year-old right-winger from Toronto already has three goals and three assists, including one of each in his last two appearances; his assist in Tuesday’s contest came on the game-winning goal in a 3-2 overtime decision against the host Carolina Hurricanes. The Isles are 33-25-11, fifth in Metropolitan Division and currently in the eighth spot in the East. According to a March 13 story in The New York Times, “Ho-Sang, who grew up in suburban Toronto, also brings an unusual family lineage to Brooklyn. His father, Wayne, is from Jamaica, and his great-grandfather was from Hong Kong. Ho-Sang’s mother, Ericka, was born in Chile, and her parents were Russian and Swedish. Ho-Sang was raised Jewish.”

I contacted the team’s PR staff to see about an interview and was told , “Right now, we are trying to make sure Josh can settle in with the team and not overburden him….  If there is an opportunity moving forward that works, we will keep you in mind.”

Stay tuned.

Josh Ho-Sang

As for the rest of the crew, in their most recent games…

Michael Cammalleri and the NJ Devils saw their Tuesday game against the visiting Winnipeg Jets postponed because of the snow in the area (I even had my weekly tennis game cancelled!).  He missed the previous contest  — a 5-4 loss to the host Arizona Coyotes — because of an upper body injury. (Can someone tell me why the NHL deals in such vague terms? Every other sport is pretty specific as to the injury that prevents someone from playing.) In fact, Cammalleri last appeared in a game on March 2, a 1-0 loss to the Washington Capitals in which he crashed awkwardly into the boards. He had not scored a goal since Jan. 3, a streak of 22 games without putting one between the pipes. For the season, Cammalleri has 10 goals and 20 assists and rumor has it he might be gone after the season. The Devils are 25-31-12, eighth in Metropolitan Division and last in the Eastern Conference.

Jason Demers played 17:07, taking two shots on goal for the Florida Panthers in their 7-2 win over Zach Hyman and the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday. Demers has nine goal and 13 assists for the 30-27-11 Panthers who are sixth in the Atlantic Division and 12th in the East. Hyman, meanwhile, took three SOG in 13:47 in that one and is 9/16. The Leafs are enjoying their best season in a long time: 31-23-14, fifth in the Atlantic and 10th in the East. Both teams have 14 games left, so there’s still a time — with a little luck — to grab a playoff spot.

On he other hand, Jason Zucker and the Minnesota Wild are sitting pretty: second in the Western Conference by one point with a record of 43-18-6. He took one SOG in Tuesday’s 4-2 loss to the host Washington Capitals and has 21 goals and 24 assists for the season.

The only MOT action came on the ice last night as Michael Cammalleri‘s goal-less streak reached 21 in a 4-3 NJ Devils loss to the visiting Montreal Canadiens. Cammalleri missed on his two shots in 15:59.

Meanwhile, Jason Zucker give the Minnesota Wild a game-tying goal in the third period to put them into overtime where the beat the visiting LA Kings a 5-4 win. It was Zucker’s 19th of the season and first since he scored a pair on Feb. 18. He took five SOG last night in 17:13.
