    Anyang Halla forfeits a game

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 September 22日 Monday

    The new season has just begun for the Asia League, and already there is already controversy with more potential trouble brewing (maybe).

    The issue is Anyang Halla forfeiting their game against High1 in only the second game of the season after High1 scored an apparently controversial goal late in what must’ve been an entertaining match up to that point. But the Halla coach disputed this goal and refused to continue with the game, thus forfeiting the game. 3 points for a regulation win will be awarded to High1, and all individual records from the game will not be counted. The finalized decision will come from the rules committee of Asia League on a later date. (Loosely translated and added more facts to the last paragraph from this AL press release covering Sunday’s actions which briefly exlains the forfeited game. Looking at the game sheet the 59:59 goal was an empty netter, and Halla coach received a delay of game penalty at 60:00 presumably for not putting his team back on the ice, so it’s anyone’s guess as to what actually transpired, we’ll need some solid firsthand information from the rink.)

    The original brief explanation on the forfeited game in the press release:

    ■「High1 対 アニャンハルラ」 高陽アイスリンク/韓国

    この試合は、試合終了間際のHigh1 のゴールを巡り、ハルラが試合続行を拒否したため、没収試合となりました。

    High1 を勝利扱いとなります。個人記録は全て無効です。

    審議委員会の競技結果等は後日、お知らせいたします。

    Anyang Cup 2008 missing game results

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 September 9日 Tuesday

    Details of missing game results here. 

    Good to see Kuwabara and Alex Kim doing well at High1, Wade Flaherty played part of the game against High1 but I guess his coaching means just as much to the team and they’d want to try out their domestic goalies (EDIT: Flaherty also played the full game against the Cranes in the 0-3 loss). And Chris Yule seems to be comfortable with the Cranes recording 1G+1A against High1. Upcoming weekend is Nikko IceBuck at Seibu at Higashifushimi in west Tokyo, faceoff at 14:00.

    【High1 Head Coach Kim Hee-woo’s postgame comment】
    I did not expect the team’s system, because our foreign players have joined 2 days ago. Fortunately, our teamwork had grown better period by period. Our first target is to join the playoffs.

    http://www.alhockey.com/news/080904/index.html

    The Korean derby featured the return of Song Dong-Hwan to Halla from 2 year mandatory military service with 1G+1A.
    Japanese-Canadian veteran (doesn’t count against import restrictions with his Japanese passport) also played well for High1 with 1G+1A as well.
    The two players (re-)joining the Korean squads this season started off the preseason well.

    In day 2 action one of the games ended with China Sharks 1 – 5 Oji Eagles in a battle between last season’s bottom dwellers and champions. Don’t have any more details, but the Sharks were losing by double digits last season, so this may be a promising start.

    Teams:

    • Nippon Paper Cranes (JPN)
    • Oji Eagles (JPN)
    • Anyang Halla (KOR)
    • High1 (KOR)
    • China Sharks (CHN)

    Schedule/Results:
    03 Sept.
    19:00 High1 5 – 4 Anyang Halla 
    04 Sept
    16:00 Oji Eagles 5 – 1 China Sharks 
    19:00 Anyang Halla vs Nippon Paper Cranes 
    05 Sept.

    福藤選手、08-09シーズンもECHLで

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 August 7日 Thursday

    福藤豊選手が08-09 シーズンもECHL ベーカーズフィールド・コンドルズ(Bakersfield Condors)に戻る事が確定になったという記事がチームの公式サイトに掲載されました

    借金13のチームで勝率5割の18勝18敗1分、チームNo.1のGAA 3.39 とセーブ率.899、そしてプレーオフ直前の9試合が7-2-0でGAA 2.38 とセーブ率.930 と、プレーオフでの強豪ビクトリア相手に脅威の39セーブの延長勝ちと55セーブの延長負けが特に高く評価されたらしいです。そして福藤選手がこの若いチームでいくつもの通算記録保持者だという事も称えられています。

    チームも独立チームからNHL アナハイム・ダックスの傘下に入り、NHLからは2段下で野球で言うとAA 的存在なチームなので、今年もチームの成績以上の活躍が出来れば、AHL に上がれるかな。今シーズンはディフェンスがザルでなければ、より目立ちやすいのだが…頑張れFuji!!

    The Bakersfield Condors, official ECHL affiliate of the Anaheim Ducks, announced today they have agreed to terms with goaltender Yutaka Fukufuji. The announcement was made by Condors Head Coach Marty Raymond.

    Fukufuji’s name is highlighted throughout the Condors record book, having climbed the ranks in almost every career category as the 2007-08 season progressed. He stands as the club’s all-time leader in wins (45), saves (2,401), minutes (4,944), appearances (90), and is tied for the club record with four shutouts. He ranks fourth in career save percentage (.910) and seventh with a 2.72 goals against average (GAA).

    Fukufuji, 25, has played more minutes between the pipes for Bakersfield than any goaltender in the history of the team. The 2008-09 campaign will be his third in Bakersfield. Last season he overcame a shaky start to carry the team into the post season, finishing with a record of 18-18-1, a .500 win percentage on a team that finished 13 games below .500 on the season. His 3.39 goals against average and .899 save percentage both led the team.

    It was at the end of the season that Fukufuji shined for the Condors. His 7-2-0 record down the stretch was accompanied by a 2.38 GAA and a .930 save percentage, and helped guide the team to a playoff spot. Fukufuji was a workhorse after returning from Injured Reserve in mid-February, appearing in 22 of the team’s last 23 games of the regular season, making 19 starts. In the playoffs, he went 2-4 while starting every game, and made 31 or more saves in each outing, highlighted by a 39-save overtime victory in Game 1 and a 55-save overtime loss in Game 6, both on the road in Victoria.

    そして昨シーズン終了後に日本製紙クレインズを退団になった36歳の元日本代表の桑原ライアン春男選手は、韓国のHigh1 と契約するという噂も流れています…昨シーズンは8G+6A=14P とイマイチパッとしない成績でしたが、若くて勢いのあるHigh1 でもう一花咲かす事が出来るんじゃないでしょうか?日本国籍所有者だから、外国籍選手にも数えられないので、両者にとって利益のある契約になると思います…もし実現されればですが(^^
