Seattle Bear's Starting 6 Season Review

One player that really broke out this season and became a legitimate number one d-man is Lucifer Olivier Leveque. He led Seattle’s defense corps in almost every stat category, minus Odin Omdahl beating him in goals. Still, he had 13 goals and 51 assists for a total of 64 points on the season and finished with a +21, which is very high for a team that finished with a goal differential of -2. Leveque had the most blocked shots on the squad as well, finishing with a total of 130, narrowly beating out Omdahl’s 138.

 

Odin Omdahl was Seattle’s second best man on the blueline this season in my opinion. He had 54 points compared to Marsh’s 56, but he also had 18 goals, the most of any defenseman. Omdahl also had a +16, showing he was responsible defensively. He was only a single blocked shot behind the team’s leader in that category, Leveque. He was also able to stay out of the box this season, only racking up 58 penalty minutes all year.

 

Vin Calia was probably the most quiet forward on the team both figuratively and literally, as he is inactive. He produced 55 points, with 25 of those being goals, but he just didn’t seem to be much of a difference maker. Despite having few penalties, he was a -2. Calia didn’t seem to do a whole lot in big moments, having a mere 1 game winning goal all season, the lowest of any active player minus Phil.

 

Stat-wise the Bears will probably have the best player on the ice in the upcoming wildcard series, and his name is Timothy Brown. A talented winger, Brown had 43 goals, 42 assists and 85 points this season, which is the most out of any player on either team. In contrast, Calgary’s best player Patrik Tallinder had 38 goals and 36 assists for 76 points. Brown finished the season with a plus/minus of +30, which is among the top 10 in the league. Timothy Brown was also able to rack up 238 hits on the season, making him a physical threat along with Randy Marsh and Jim Bob. Unlike the latter two, Brown didn’t rack up a ton of penalty minutes however.

 

Seattle’s biggest physical presence is center Jim Bob. His 309 hits on the season are a good indication that any opposing team dreaded to step out onto the ice when facing his line. Bob was also no stranger to the penalty box, racking up 146 penalty minutes. If Timothy Brown wasn’t there to step up in a big game, Jim Bob often would be. He had 34 goals, 34 assists and 68 points on the season and ranked second on the Bear’s team scoring. Bob was a bit prone to undisciplined penalties, with 146 penalty minutes on the season.

 

Simply put, Seattle’s goaltending was not that incredible for the third straight season in a row. Rara Rasputin had a pretty below average season, with a save percentage of 0.917 and a GAA of 2.84. Moving Jacob Tonn didn’t seem to have much of an impact, but the Bears are still hopeful that Rasputin can pan out for them. He’s only in his sophomore season and first season as starter, after all.
