  1. I tried to get former star Edwin Encarnacion to do a Blast From The Past article. He didn’t answer. For those who didn’t know, Edwin Encarnacion is a VHL Legend who went from playing in Major League Baseball to tying up the skates and playing in the Victory Hockey League. Pretty cool. I mean, name one other person who can say that they were a superstar in more than two major leagues. Knowing he is a superstar, I thought he probably was busy or something, so I called an even bigger star, Edwin Reencarnacion. You know, the guy who won MVP, Most Outstanding, Most Goals, Top Two-Way Forward, and Most Points, all in one season. He didn’t answer my call either. Eh, should’ve expected that. I mean c’mon, he’s the type of player that even Crosby could only dream of being. I called Edwin Threencarnacion. It’s so weird how their names are so similar. He didn’t pick up. Hm. Normally, I would’ve left them alone, but I had a deadline looming. Thankfully, a couple weeks before, I ran into Encarnacion. Hoping that this would be useful, I put a tracking device (aka the plot device) on his jacket. It’s his favourite jacket. I checked my computer, and sure enough, I found an address. I won’t tell you the address for privacy reasons. I went there. I was shocked. It looked like a lab. Did he become a scientist or something? I walked in. It was completely empty. There were a few quadrants but one caught my attention. Cloning Room. Curious, I went in. I will never forget what I saw. There were 4 giant test tubes with some kind of liquid in it with bodies in the first three test tubes. The last one was completely empty plus there was a hole and glass surrounding it. The hole was probably enough for a grown man, maybe the size of Edwin Preencarnacion, to fit through. I looked up and there was a sign above each test tube. One of the signs said, Encarnacion. One said Reencarnacion. One said Threencarnacion. The last one above the broken one said…  Preencarnacion.

    TPE: Weekly Reddit Recruitment

    Music to my ears! also done hut and buf
  3. Defenseman: Joseph McWolf Joseph has been, no doubt about it, the best player for the Americans. With 18 goals and 62 assists making a total of a team-leading 80 points, plus, he leads in hits and shots blocked showing off what a two-way player he is. One of the few people not affected by the Sophomore Curse, he has been great for the Americans, being probably one of the best two-way defenseman in the entire league. Right Winger: Roctrion King The King of New York has been great for the Americans. He, like Joseph, has been a star for the Americans, with 37 goals and 38 assists. Those numbers accumulated with a point total of 75, which put him at the second highest point scorer for the Americans. Roctrion has been electric, and I can't wait to see his career unfold. Center: Scott Shawinganen Scott is in his second season in the VHL and is doing amazing. He, like all the other Young Guns in New York, has been great. He has scored 34 goals and got 38 assists making a point total and 72. Due to the whole roster literally only made out of Rookies and players in their second season (except the goalie), him and the other Young Guns being so good has been crucial. Right Winger: Dan Wilinsky Dan has shown that he is also a great forward and has shown that he has a great future. Sure, he might be shadowed by the brilliance that is Roctrion King, but he has been a star as well, with 32 goals and 35 assists, making a point total of 67 points. Just like every other Young Gun in this list, he has been superstar level and I can't wait to see his development as a player. Center: Joel Ylonen Joel is the first rookie on this list and has had a good Rookie Season scoring 18 goals and having 39 assists (making 57 points). His goal scoring could use some improvement but he has shown that he is a great passer and that you can count on him to set up a goal. Joel has been a great rookie and has set himself up to be the next Joe Thornton. Defenseman: Ryan Sullivan Jr. Despite being 2nd last in point scoring for the Americans (out of the user created players), he has been a great offensive player for New York. He has had 10 goals and 46 assists making an impressive point count of 56, and the fact he is a defenseman makes it even more impressive. All of these Young Guns have been superstar level, and I can't stress how excited I am to see their future Center: Ryan Zabby Ryan, despite being on the lower end of user-created player scoring, has also had a great rookie season, with 22 goals and 32 assists. He has been a solid center for the New York Americans and is really good for a third line center. Zabby has a great future, and despite saying this about 100 times, I am very excited to see his future unfold.

    VSN - A Blast From The Past - Alexander Chershenko

    Who the hell is Boomchenko? Never heard of him. (I am aware it's Boom this is a joke)
  7. This series will be about old stars and familiar faces and what they are doing now.  I asked Mr. Chershenko if I could follow him around for the day and interview him. He said yes. When he retired, he told me that he helped out the recruitment crew by promoting posts on social media and he worked in the background of that league. He moved back to Ukraine as the league's representative here. He eventually became head of the VHL's eastern European scouting wing. They work in conjunction with a few player agencies to find players from the Czech Republic to Russia. He says that he is currently helping a team of scouts to find a GM player for his old agent, Victor Alfredsson, so that Victor could bring it to Moscow. He jokes that he is probably more busy now than when he used to play, which, by the sound of it, might not be wrong. An interesting post-retirement. (if you can even call it that) I followed him around for most of the day. He really was busy. We kept moving from place to place and there was almost never a time he wasn't helping the league. We did have a nice lunch at McDonalds. He ordered a Big Mac with fries with some Coke. I just sat there, eating my salad. When he saw my salad, he told me to forget about hockey for a while and that I should treat myself. Kinda hypocritical, don't you guys think? After a few more hours of him working, we finally returned to his house. And, of course, like any good reporter should do, I interviewed him. My first question was, who is your favourite young player in the VHL. He replied, "There's the player I know best in the VHL because he's come through the same agency and that's Podrick Cast, but I'm not sure if he qualifies as young anymore, even though they're all quite young to me. I like the look of Julian Borwinn personally, he's got an eye for the net, a shoot-first, think-later kind of guy which is my favourite part of the game." Borwinn, for those who didn't know, won top rookie in Season 63. I admire him as well. He seems to find ways to score even when it's thought to be impossible to score. Knowing that some players are retiring soon, I asked if he had any tips for players who are retiring soon. He said some wise words that young players should remember for when it's my time. "Start planning ahead, get into contact with people and stay in the game, whatever you do. There's so many opportunities to suit anyone and it really helps move on from hockey. You don't want to be the miserable old former player who's constantly reminiscing about his glory days 20 years ago." Wise words to remember. I pondered those words. After a while, I interviewed him again. I asked him what moment in his career was he most proud of. After all, the guy was a superstar, winning awards left and right. He laughed and said, "That's a tough one, I was blessed with a pretty good career if I may say so myself haha. My last season was pretty dreamy, coming back to my VHL home in Calgary, and winning just about every award there was to win, just a shame we fell in Game 7 of the finals. Ending a very long cup drought in New York was also a highlight, but wish we could repeat it the next season. The #1 moment has to be captaining Calgary to the cup in S30 and scoring the cup-winning goal - that's just everything you could wish for growing up and wanting to play hockey. I've enjoyed a pretty friendly reception in Calgary ever since, I can tell you that! " We both laughed at his little joke at the end. Of course, as a reporter, I couldn't just leave it at that. Being the negative little person I am, I asked him what moment he regrets the most in his illustrious career. "Weirdly, despite the whole cup drought breaking thing above, the trade to New York. In hindsight, I wish I could have spent my entire career in Calgary but I wanted a change of scenery and it looked like a good solution to the cap problems we had. In reality, I think only NY came out of it as the winners and I'm just glad I had a chance to finish where it started which I'm not sure I necessarily deserved. The grass is not always greener, that's for sure." I nodded and thought about his words. We talked and chatted about hockey and the League before I left. Now, I should get him to be my agent.

  12. Center: Oleksiy Revchenko Oleksiy Revchenko has been one of the Wrangler's best players on the teams struggling roster, the S62 prospect made significant improvements over his rookie season and doesn't appear to be stricken by the infamous sophomore curse. The second-year pro has improved upon his rookie season by notching 28 goals and picking up 31 assists for a combined 59 points. While the Wranglers haven't had as well of a season they'd like, it was anticipated after losing Stopko. Consequentially, Revchenko is one of the bright stars of Calgary's future. Center: Mark Gebauer Mark Gebauer would feel like he hasn't left his 'Mark' this season on the scoreboard, but he's had a really good rookie season in comparison to the rookie class of S64. One of Calgary's latest first-round picks put up 24 goals and contributed 25 assists for a respectable 49 points this season for the rebuilding Calgary squad. He has proven to be a solid center, and he might even be promoted to the first line after Canmore's retirement following the end of next season. Whether Revchenko or Gebauer get the top billet, they're a solid one-two punch down the middle. Left Winger: Karl von Moltke Kark von Moltke might not have had the season he'd like, much less a season people expected of him, but he has had an 'okay' display during his second pro campaign. The left winger was average offensively, registering 11 goals and 31 assists for 41 points. In my opinion, he has the same problem his former teammate and fellow left-winger Ryuu Crimson has: He needs to shoot more. Unfortunately, 'KVM' has seen his development as a prospect drop, and will likely only be a depth forward for Calgary in their future seasons. Defenseman: Lando Baxter Lando Baxter has had a good sophomore season with the Calgary Wranglers. Despite not being as well-known compared to other young defenders in the Victory Hockey League, he is silently great for Calgary as a result. He has scored 15 goals, earned 40 assists for a total of 55 points while blocking __ shots and a plus/minus of __. Despite his plus/minus, I don't think he's bad defensively, as the entire Calgary Wrangler roster shared a similar stat due to their rebuilding nature.  Right Winger: Wlodzimierz Zajaczkowski Wlodzimierz Zajaczkowski - a name that will likely go down in VHL history as one of the hardest to spell and pronounce - has had an underwhelming rookie season. He's only potted 12 goals while adding 9 assists for an individually disappointing 21 points. Although not developing rapidly, his consistent improvement will likely mean he'll be a solid depth player for Calgary for his tenure with the team. Goaltender: Brick Wahl The Great Wahl of Canada has had, like some of the other Young Guns in Calgary, a mediocre season. Brick has a record of 22-34-5, has a great save percentage of 0.914, and has 3 shutouts. He has had an okay year, but he wasn't good enough to lead them to the playoffs. Though, considering how young he is, he hasn't done half bad. He had some big shoes to fill after the departure of legend Norris Stopko, and in my opinion, has a bright future.
