Task 1

Task 2

Interviewing Tommy Tuck After the Four Star Cup Finals Game 7

Seppanen: How intense was the atmosphere on the ice after Vyskoc scored the winner?
Tuck: Wow, the intensity levels were through the roof. Once that shot went in, I didn't even know how to react. I jumped over the boards and went and gave him a huge hug. It was a big moment man.

Seppanen: Was there ever any doubt about the result after the first period goal by Timmy Barlow?
Tuck: No. Not to me. I have had faith in our guys since day one, since I got drafted here. We have had a strong group and dealt with a lot of bullshit throughout the season but its been totally worth it.

Seppanen: How do you feel about this team moving forward into next year? Will PGF be able to repeat?
Tuck: I think we have a good young core group of guys that we can make it back to the playoffs. Any given day, games can go anywhich way. I love it here in Prince George and I want it to continue going!

Task 4

Dionyz Vyskoc deserves the SMJHL Playoff MVP for S38. His 5 goals and 10 assists throughout the playoffs gave him the honour of highest scorer and most assists. Furthermore, having scored the Four Star Cup winning goal, his contribution doesn't end at the numbers. He came in clutch, adding another series winning goal against Montreal in the 3-0 game 7 victory. He also wreaked havoc on opponent's penalty kills. With 8 power play points, he never gave the opposition a chance to defend against his elite shot and playmaking ability. Only taking 2 minor penalties thoughout the playoffs, he did an excellent job avoiding putting his team a man short in the important games. He ended the playoffs on a 2 game goal streak, never letting his team down in the big moments. To summarize, Vyskoc deserves the title of SMJHL Playoff MVP because he comes up big in all the important moments, leading his team to the Four Star Cup in the process. Leading the league in scoring, his offensive output was the catalyst for Prince George's deep playoff run.

Task #1 - Top 5 snacks to eat at the game:

5 - Popcorn - A classic at number five, who doesn't love popcorn? You can sit and watch the games like you are watching a movie at the cinema. Great choice and still healthy, even when covered in butter.

4 - Hamburger - An all-American dish, the Hamburger is a classic at any event. Easy, cheap, delicious

3 - French Fries - I always loved eating French Fries with ketchup at sporting events. It's the perfect mix of delicious and trash.

2 - Nachos - I know Nachos are super popular. I am not necessarily a fan myself but it is a classic.

1 - Hot Dog - The number one spot goes to the Hot Dog, an amazing food that is delicious and perfect for the game.

Task #2 - Interview with Liam O'Callaghan:

me: How did you feel the team's season went?

O'Callaghan: I felt that our season started out slowly and I was worried we would miss the playoffs. We gelled halfway through the season and ended on a good note.

me: How do you feel about your own season?

O'Callaghan: I was mildly disappointed in my season. I had felt that I had the tools to make a bigger impact on the ice and I fell short of my own expectations.

me: What are your goals for next year?

O'Callaghan: My goals for next season are simple: be better. I want to log more minutes and play well during them. I want to put up a lot more points and help Vancouver to the top.

me: Who is your favourite teammate?

O'Callaghan: My favourite teammate? Hmmm, as much as I bug the big silly guy, I do like Gronk. Our rivalry is more friendly in nature but it helps keep us motivated to be better.

Task #3 - Game 6 of the series between the Kelowna Knights and the Montreal Militia was a close one. Both teams seemed very evenly matched but in the end, the Militia persisted and won game 6 and moved on to the next round.

In the first period, the Knights actually took an early lead, after Jacob Dorty found the net after excellent passes by Brock Becker and Mirio Tagata. A few minutes later, however, the Militia took advantage of their powerplay and after great puck movement, Patrick Brumm tied the game up, with assists from Connor Tanner and Artemi Berezin.

The second period had the Knights dominate with more shots, but it was the Militia who took the lead, with yet another Patrick Brumm goal, this time assisted by Friedrich Koenig and yet again Artemi Berezin.

In the third period, Connor Tanner added a goal, after he already had an assist earlier in the game. Kyle Keenan and Jack Tanner with the assist in that case. While the Knights added a goal a few minutes later with Miervaldis Frīdrihs Ozoliņš scoring the goal after Fenton Uriel and Lyndis Vakarian got assists, it was too little too late and the Knights could not score another goal.

This was a thrilling series and a thrilling decisive game with the Militia having the better end. Every game was tight and either team could have won and moved on to the next round. It was a luckier finish for the Militia but the Knights had a wonderful season as well.

Task #4 - Dionýz Vyskoč is the obvious choice for playoff MVP. He had a fantastic season, and an especially fantastic playoffs. Vyskoč had five goals and ten assists, good for the most points of any player in the playoffs. As part of the Prince George Firebirds, he also won the Championship, so you can say that getting the most points was also the most valuable to the team. Beyond that, the playoff final was only decided in game 7 of the finals, and even then it was in overtime. And who scored that goal? That's right, Vyskoč was not only the player with the most points but he also had the single most important goal of the playoffs, the walk-off championship goal. I can only imagine what it would feel like to win a championship but to then be the decisive player has to be incredible. Dionýz Vyskoč must be on top of the world and his deciding goal will forever be remembered in this league.

Task #1 - Make a top 5 list for the playoffs. Top 5 goals in round 1, top 5 players, top 5 noteworthy people in the audience for one of the games, whatever you want. No word count, but if you just list 5 names, you won't get the full 2 tpe. Be a little creative.

Now that the playoffs have come to an end, I wanted to take a look at the top 5 players who had the most impressive outlying stats compared to the rest of their competition.

1: To start, let’s examine the performance of the shot blocking maestro, Detroit’s Tatu Mäkelä. Across his 13 games played, he blocked a whopping 30 shots which was 9 higher than the next closest player, on top of producing 10 points which placed him third amongst all defensemen.

2: The next outlying stat belongs to Prince George’s Kyler Gill who sustained a tremendous 30.43% shooting percentage across 14 games, tying him for first place in overall playoff goal scoring with 7 goals.

3: Our next stat is aptly titled the “Gentleman Award”, and goes to Prince George’s Paddy Kane-Rielly who despite landing 23 hits, putting him in 6th place overall, only took a single 2 minute trip to the penalty box, whilst also playing more total minutes and average minutes per game than the other 5 players ahead of him in hits.

4: Our next stat is the “Is he really going back to the box again?”, and belongs to St Louis’s Paddy O'Sullivan. While Paddy’s 23 penalty minutes only placed him third overall, he put up these impressive numbers over just 10 games compared to the 13 games of the two players above him, whilst averaging 8-9 minutes less per game as well.

5: Our final stat is the “Unlikely playmaker”, and goes to none other than Prince George’s netminder, Aleksandr Aleksandrov. Despite only playing 10 games throughout Prince George’s successful playoff run, Aleksandrov managed to chip in 3 assists, which would have placed him above several skaters who made it all the way to the finals. What more could be expected from the so called “Russian Superweapon”?


Task #2 - Interview one of your teammates as if you stole a reporter's mic before or after a playoff game. If you didn't make the playoffs, do it as though it's the season exit interview. Can be as serious or not-serious as you want. Include at least 3 questions and 3 answers.


This will be a year-end locker room cleanout interview with the Colorado Mammoths Dean Youngblood.

Question: Hey Dean, I know this was a rough year for the team but do you have any thoughts for the upcoming season?

Answer: Uh, you know it wasn’t what we wanted when we started the year, especially when we had a playoff spot for most of the year. I’m excited to see what management is able to do in the draft and off season to build us into a championship team in the next few years.

Question: A few of your teammates were traded to Prince George at the deadline and went on to win the championship. Any thoughts on their achievement?

Answer: Uh, it’s great to see the guys managed to pull it out at the end. We had a few viewing parties throughout the playoffs and there was definitely some loud nights, especially with the way game 7 ended, but overall it was great to see them win in the end. We lost some character guys, and it was no surprise that they’d go on to win with an already great team in Prince George.

Question: Going into the off season, do you have any plans for what you want to work on prior to training camp?

Answer: I was pretty happy with the way the season went for me offensively, and I managed to be fairly defensively responsible at the same time, but there’s always things to work on. I think more than anything I just want to really push myself physically leading up to training camp, so I hope to come in faster and stronger than ever before.

Thanks so much for the interview, and good luck in the offseason.



Task #3 - Write a goals highlight play by play for one series winning game, or make an infographic featuring stats from a series winning game.
Requirements: At least 250 words for written / at least 4 stats featured in at least 2 different ways for graphics (bar graphs, pie graphs, list of names, etc).

Task #4 - Make a case for who you think deserves to win Playoff MVP.
Requirements: At least 150 words and a minimum of 2 stats.


While he wasn’t inevitably on the Championship winning team, I felt that Connor Tanners performance particularly as a defenseman was most worthy of holding the claim to Playoff MVP. To start with, Connor was an absolutely dynamic offensive producer, putting up 7 goals and 4 assists, sitting just a single point back from his teammate Jack Tanner. While both of these players absolutely have a similar claim to the title, what differentiated the two were the underlying advanced stats.

Connor led the playoffs with 61 shots, contributed 20 hits, and averaged a whopping 23.48 minutes per game, whilst also being an absolute force on Montreal’s powerplay unit, placing him third overall in terms of playoff points, despite missing out on an entire series worth of production from being knocked out just prior to the finals. While this is absolutely an irregular MVP pick compared to the likes of Dionýz Vyskoč or Logan Jensen, I wanted to bring attention to a player who went above and beyond the production levels expected by his position, and was a catalyst behind his teams run throughout the playoffs.

If I had to pick a player who specifically made it to the final, my choice would instead have to be Detroit’s Tatu Mäkelä. Tatu was an absolute force for the back end of the Falcons, putting up 10 points, sitting at a +2 despite playing over 22 minutes a night against the opponents best forwards, and also blocking a whopping 30 shots which put him far ahead of his competition. I’ve always had a soft spot for these sort of players who manage to balance offensive production on top of being a brick wall defensively, and Tatu absolutely went above and beyond any other defenseman in the finals in terms of sheer team contribution across the board.

While the glory and intensity of the playoffs is often what's held in the spotlight; let's take a look at the Top 5 Bloopers of the S38 SMJHL Playoffs!

#5 - Rocky Park (Montreal Militia)
Park scores his first goal of the playoffs in a very unconventional way. After Luisa Koller took a hard shot at the net which missed, the puck would take a strange bounce off the boards back in front of the net. It would hit the unsuspecting Park square in the chin before falling and knicking the blade of his stick going between the legs of netminder Alexsandrov.

#4 - Game 6 Four Star Cup Finals
Zemgus Nylander and Kevin Marks actually get tangled up following a faceoff in the Firebirds end. Their helmets get locked together in a rather close embrace but what's more hilarious is it happened while Viktor Marius scored the game winning goal off the faceoff win by Marks who was still tangled up!

#3 - Max Poulin (Kelowna Knights)
Things didn't go well for Kelowna, particularly Poulin who not only had an embarrassing tumble in front of his own goal, but had a shot deflect direct off of his behind while he struggled to get up and regain his balance. The Knights lost the game 2-1.

#2 - Kyler Gill (Prince George Firebirds)
After taking a lot of heat from a heckler in Detroit, Gill received a neutral zone pass that just so happened to deflect off of his stick and over the bench hitting...you guessed it. That same fan! The fan was thankfully OK after being looked at. Gill went on to score a goal on the next shift shaking off his heckler.

#1 - Mikhail Petrikov (Prince George Firebirds)
With the Detroit goalie wildly out of his net Petrikov went too blast home a hard pass, but completely fanned on the attempt. The puck would advance all the way to the other end but this doesn't end here. This was on a delayed penalty and no goalie in the net! Petrikov raced back and was able to stop the puck before it went into the open net BUT then he would lose an edge on his blade and crash to the ice losing control of the puck, it went in the net!


Task #2 - Interview one of your teammates as if you stole a reporter's mic before or after a playoff game. If you didn't make the playoffs, do it as though it's the season exit interview. Can be as serious or not-serious as you want. Include at least 3 questions and 3 answers.

Requirements: At least 150 words and a minimum of 2 stats.


The Case for Dionýz Vyskoč
artermis

Look I don't like picking a name I can't fucking pronounce. I also just looked at some stats quick and a couple boxscores and picked a dude. But Vice Cock needs to win this award! The man did the thing when his team needed a thing the most. He's a hero's hero. Two big goals in the final game to get his team to the finals, and the goal that won it all. Nothing else matters after that. He lead all scrubs with 15 points. Of his 5 goals, 3 of them came in series winning games. He also had 10 assists which was a league high. This dude is clutch. Clutch Vice Cock. He's not a good Canadian kid but he sure plays like one and that's alright in my books. I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot more of Clutch Vice Cock in the future! He even blocked A shot, one single blocked shot, and I bet it was clutch!

Task #5 - Create a 4 Star Cup Championship banner similar to the one the SHL uses at the top of the site.
Requirements: Must include a team logo and at least one player render.

Top 5 Best Player names on Kelowna Knights:

Miervaldis Frīdrihs Ozoliņš - I have been a part of the SHL family for one season here and I still don't know how to pronounce his name nor do I know where the influence came from. But seeing this name on your line, you know you will be scoring goals.

Hunter Jones - Great guy, and come on, Hunter Jones sounds like the next great Marvel super hero name.

Deku Izuku - This is an easy choice because Deku Izuku is the name of the main character of the popular manga Boku no Hero Academia. Great read.

Fenton Uriel - Little bias on the choice. Origin of name comes from the video Fenton (dog video on youtube) and Uriel is based off a character in the manga Bastard!! (great manga, sadly not completed though)

Mirio Togata - Another great character based off the manga Boku no Hero Academia.

Task #2 - Interview one of your teammates as if you stole a reporter's mic before or after a playoff game. If you didn't make the playoffs, do it as though it's the season exit interview. Can be as serious or not-serious as you want. Include at least 3 questions and 3 answers.

What was your favorite moment about this past season playing for Kelowna?

Making the playoffs was huge for me last season. It shows our team is trending upward and ready to compete.

What are your goals for next year?

My goals for Jones next season will be the same as last. He needs to hit a point per game. He has taken on the leadership role, and has established himself as one of the top two-way wingers in the league, but his offensive upside is better than what he displayed last season. Obviously the biggest goal would be to go further in the playoffs as well.

What role will you have next year for your team?

After taking on the Co-GM role for Kelowna, i have stepped away from my assistant captaincy position. We have made some decisions on replacements and they will be announced soon. As for my place in the lineup. im starting Jones on the 2nd line this season, but nour and I are very active in making changes to the line up, so we will have to see where he fits. the plan right now is to have him start on the 2nd line and spread the offence.
