VHLM Newsletter - 13th Edition

Recommended Posts

Hi there and welcome to another edition of the VHLM Newsletter! There's a lot of people who will be getting tagged into a newsletter for the first time, so here's a quick breakdown of what we look to cover in each edition:

Uncapped TPE Opportunities (None This Week)  - Any time there's a one-off or once-a-season point task available to enter, you'll find out about it in the early headlines of the article.

- League Recap - The middle of the Newsletter is generally based around keeping you up to speed with what's going on around the league, be that changes to how the league works, new features or how the current VHLM season is progressing.

- TPE Earning Guide - The bottom section of the Newsletter follows the same format each week. There, you will be provided with the links you need to get to the regular TPE earning activities. 

 

First of all, I'd like to apologise for the lateness of this weeks VHLM Newsletter, I'd been waiting on the trivia results so that I could give you guys hints to next week's questions, but unfortunately they haven't been posted up yet. I had typed up a lot of this to release on Sunday (So if any of the VHLM section is a little janky, it's because I've been editing a piece that was already written), but as I was writing, I realised a lot of the point tasks I would be linking to would expire within hours of posting (so after many people may have read it for the first time). Instead, I figured I would leave posting this till today (Spent all my free time yesterday helping the Pajodcast Crew with their 24hr stream) so that the point tasks would be more relevant. I'll be looking to post up my first Mock Draft tomorrow and from then, hopefully return back to the usual schedule.

 

As always, I’d like to kick things off by telling you all about the VHL Discord. A lot of you are already in this and can probably attest to how helpful it’s been, but if you aren’t in it already you should definitely give it a shot, especially if you have any questions about the league as that will be the quickest place to get them answered! Like the last VHLM Newsletter, some of this newsletter will re-tread on old ground as, with this being a VHLM newsletter, there will inevitably be new members reading this for the first time that won’t be aware of what was in previous newsletters. So what I’ll do is put a bold *NEW* next to any information specifically made for this newsletter so players who have read these before know where to go to find the new info!

 

What's Going On In The VHLM

 

VHLM Season *NEW*

 

We're now just over a third of the way through the season and it's been a close race at the top of the table. 

 

On top of the standings are the Halifax 21st, who are two points clear of their nearest rival, the Yukon Rush, but in spite of how close they are, they couldn't be more different in the style of hockey that they play. The 21st are playing a very open style of hockey that sees them lead the league in goals by a considerable margin, but as a result of their open play has also seen them face more shots than any other team in the VHLM. Interestingly for a team that leads the league, they've actually faced more shots than they've taken! Cole Mertz has been the man between the sticks for the 21st and while dealing with so many shots has taken a toll on his goals against average, his save percentage of .898% is even more than Kallis Kriketers (one of the league's standout goalies last season) save percentage last season. The top three skaters for the 21st all lead the league in different statistical categories; Nathan MacKinnon currently leads the league in points, defenseman Jesse Wilson leads in assists and Nikita Flipachyev is the league's top goalscorer with 26 goals. 

 

On the other hand, the Yukon Rush have played much more defensive hockey, allowing the second least amount of shots in the league but, perhaps more surprisingly given their offensive talent, have attempted over a hundred shots less than the rest of the teams in the VHLM. Part of their problem seem to be as a result of some struggles on the powerplay where, despite having more powerplay attempts than any other team in the league, they have the least amount of powerplay goals. The main reason for the Rush being in the position that they are despite their lack of shots is through the stellar goalie play of Rhett Stoffiday, whose .908% save percentage is a figure very rarely reached by a modern day VHLM goalie. While it's unclear why the Rush are shooting as little as they are, they're still getting some decent performances out of some of their skaters; Kisshan Shan leads the team in goals and points, with his 32 points being the seventh best among wingers, while Ryan Sullivan Jr. is currently sixth in defenseman scoring while also having the second-best tally for a defensemen in hits. Kronos Bailey currently leads the league in hits pretty comfortably, although he'll want to see better offensive production to make sure he wins the award for best two-way forward as, after a very strong start, he's fallen off that pace quite a bit and is currently 32nd in the league in points.

 

Two points behind the Rush are the Saskatoon Wild, who have climbed up from last place when I covered them in the last Newsletter. Like the Rush, the Wild have showcased some very strong defensive play, having allowed the least shots in the VHLM. However, while the Rush are low in their total goals tally through lack of shots, the Wild have had plenty, they've just not had as much luck putting the puck into the net and as a result are currently second from bottom in goals scored. While they were struggling at the start of the season,. Rylan Peace and Chace Trepanier both had individual performances that showed they had the potential to turn things around, and sure enough, they have! Rylan Peace is the one putting in especially productive performances, currently scoring over a point per twenty minutes and is actually the best non-Halifax player in that category. Brick Wahl made the move to Saskatoon earlier this season and since joining the Wild, his save percentage has been exactly the same as it was at the Aces at .893%, but he has recorded significantly more wins and a much better goals against average as a result of playing on a more competitive team. It will take a lot to compete with Stoffiday after the start he has had, but should Wahl keep this form up, he'll at least be a close runner-up for goalie of the year honours. Speaking of runners up, Piotr Jerwa has had a very good season in the VHLM to this point and is currently second place in points for a defenseman and third out of all skaters in assists.

 

In fourth place are the Las Vegas Aces. One of the big moves that the Aces made recently was bringing in goalie Kevin Weekes from Saskatoon in exchange for Brick Wahl and, while Saskatoon have so far gotten similar performances from Wahl than from his games with the Aces, Weekes hasn't transitioned quite as smoothly, as his save percentage on the Wild was .023% better than his save percentage in an Aces jersey. Weekes is still a talented goalie though so hopefully he can turn things around and help what is still a solid group of players to success. Leading the way in points for the Aces is Jorgon Weyed, a second round pick from the Season 63 VHL Draft. The winger is currently seventh in the league in points and has a very respectable +/- of 13 for a player that isn't currently competing. The teams next best scorer is Joel Ylonen, who has 35 points to his name. Ylonen is a player who will enter the upcoming Season 64 VHL Draft and is currently third in points out of all players who will be entering that draft. 

 

Fifth place belongs to the Oslo Storm, a team who have elected to focus more on what the team can potentially become next season with a few of the trades they have made. One player who is rumoured to be on the move from the Storm is Wlodzimierz Zajaczkowksi, and should he continue his form to this point of the season (He's currently eighth in the league in points and joint third in goals) with whichever team he joins, they will be very happy customers! Zajaczkowksi also stands to be Kronos Bailey's toughest contender for the two way forward award as Wlodzimierz is currently second in the league in hits. 

 

Finally in last place, the Ottawa Lynx, who despite their standing in the VHLM have still had some strong individual performances. The main talking point for the Lynx is the incredible performances they've gotten out of the first-gen prospect Elias Dahlberg. Despite not long joining the league, Dahlberg is currently third in the league in points, along with having the highest point tally of anyone entering the Season 64 VHL Draft. He's been very well rounded on the ice as well, as he's fourth in the league in goals and fifth in assists. Chance Matthews has also been right up there, currently sitting in sixth in total points, while the German center Mark Gebauer is currently joint-seventh in goals. While the team is currently in last place at the minute, they've managed to beat the Oslo Storm in their last three matchups with the Norwegian side which has helped them cut the amount of points they were behind from six to just one, putting them in a much stronger position to make the Wildcard Round of the VHLM playoffs.
