Is he on a crappy team, what is his deal? Rico said "he probably has one of the best shots that Miami has ever had."

The game I saw him play he was on the fourth line and played about six minutes. And yes...



He's one of the fastest skaters on the team and does a lot of good things when he's on the ice, so I don't get why he isn't playing more.

Who would you compare him to that has played for Miami when it comes to speed. And are we finally going to be able to skate with B.C.

From what I have heard and read about Gacek, I don't understand how he didn't end up with the Eagles. Fast, skilled Boston-area products are usually locks for Boston (of Massachusetts) College.

As for getting past Boston (of Massachusetts) College, I guess if you can't beat 'em with their fast, skilled small skaters, join 'em.

Yeah, Youngstown, errr, Mahoning Valley, whatever they want to call themselves... They're easily one of the worst teams in the U right now. Sorry Hirsch...

He reminds me of Andy Greene the way he glides up and down the ice. In terms of skating only, mind you. I certainly don't want to compare him to Greene overall. He didn't play enough for me to compare his hockey skills to a former or current player.

I really hate to self-promote, but here was the write-up we did about him after the New Year's Eve game he played in Indy.

He has nine shots in 14 games with Y'town, so I think it's safe to say he's not playing anymore than he was when I saw him.

There has to be a reason we're unaware of.

GP-38 0-5--5 -19

Whats the deal with this kid? I thought he was supposed to have the best shot Miami has ever had according to Rico. Is his team really that bad or is he just not ready for that level of play?

Team has 3rd lowest goals scored in the league, 3rd most goals against in the league... can't say much not seeing him in action with the Phantoms, but that club is pretty bad.

He's only taken 26 shots in 31 games with them, so I'd guess he's in a bad role for his reported talent.

I guess put him next to a 3rd round and future 1st round draft pick and that would make a difference

I'm checking him out in Indy on New Year's Eve. I was impressed with his speed in the brief ice time he logged when I saw him last season, so we'll see where he's at in a few weeks.

Alex Gacek’s hat trick advances Phantoms

Quote:
“[Coming back to Youngstown] made me a better player on both sides of the puck,” Gacek said.

Youngstown coach Anthony Noreen said having a veteran like Gacek back has benefitted both parties.

“Miami’s plan for him coming back here was to mature and prove he can be an impact player,” Noreen said. “He may not get the most points or be the guy that always shows up on the score sheet, but there’s not a guy in the USHL that plays a more complete game than Alex.”
