News from the Farm: 10/21/10

If you’re looking for an update on Aunt Bessie’s cow, or information on last summer’s harvest, look on.

If, however, you’re looking for news and information on the top minor league affiliates of the NHL’s Southeast Division clubs, you’re in the right place.

In years past, I would run News from Norfolk as a regular feature on Tampa Bay’s AHL affiliate and now, News from the Farm will feature the Charlotte Checkers, Chicago Wolves, Hershey Bears and Rochester Americans along with the Admirals, to follow the progress of the Southeast’s future stars at the AHL level (and, at least for now, Michael Nylander and Sheldon Souray too).

We’ll look at game results, standings, league and team-leading scorers and goaltenders, pick a player of the week, have a glance at the schedule ahead and keep you abreast of any other developments for these players and their clubs.

Thursday seemed as good a day as any for this weekly feature, so that’s where it will be slotted in to start (and this week, as the first installment, there’s plenty of AHL action to catch up on).

Without further delay, News from the Farm:

Huet Doing OK In Switzerland

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

He believes he still has the game to be an NHL goalie. But since the Hawks are still on the hook for another year next season at $5.625 million, he’s likely stuck in Europe until the team buys him out.

“I don’t know what Chicago’s intentions are for next year,” said Huet, who went 26-14-8 with a 2.50 GAA last season in Chicago. “I’ll probably be in the same situation with my salary and not playing in the NHL. It’s really not up to me, but we’ll see what happens next year.”

For now, he’s making the best of being back in Switzerland, where he tended goal for four seasons before heading to Los Angeles in 2002. While he’s a native of France, Huet married a Swiss woman, so the move made sense on the personal side of things. He also obtained his Swiss passport earlier this week.

Owen Nolan Out To Prove He Can Play

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Owen Nolan has not given up on playing in the NHL.

The 38-year-old winger is slated to be on a plane headed to Switzerland on Thursday night. He’s joining Zurich of the Swiss League in what he hopes is the first step in bringing him back to the NHL this season.

“I’m still eager to play,” Nolan told ESPN.com Wednesday night. “I feel like I still have something in the tank and can help a team.”

The plan is for him to play for Zurich for a month and “show that I can still play,” Nolan said.

Radulov Sets New Record

Alexander Radulov of Salavat Yulaev entered the record books recently by scoring the fastest goal in Russian hockey history. Radulov scored six seconds into a match against Yugra, after intercepting a pass and doing a nice spin-o-rama move on goaltender Mikhail Biryukov. Radulov beat the twelve year record of seven seconds, set by Andrei Pychelyakov of Severstal in 1998 and later tied by former NHLer Dmitry Yushkevich of Magnitogorsk in 2003. However, Radulov’s goal is not the fastest goal ever recorded in a professional hockey game as that distinction is held by four players who were able to find the back of the net one second faster than Radulov. They are NHLer’s Doug Smail (1981), Bryan Trottier (1984) and fellow Russian Alexander Mogilny (1991), as well as Slovak 2nd division player; Frantisek Zubek of Presov.
