A Tough Stretch For Nolan Patrick

from Mike Sielski of Philly.com,

With Nolan Patrick, it’s difficult to tell where the patience should end and the concern should start. He has played 29 games for the Flyers so far, and he has just two goals, and his ice time dropped during the team’s recent two-game road trip to Florida. He had been averaging 12 minutes this season, but against neither the Panthers nor the Lightning did Patrick play more than 9 1/2 minutes. Is this progress? Especially for the player who was the second overall selection in last year’s NHL draft?

It is easy to find mitigating factors. He underwent two abdominal surgeries during the offseason, and he suffered a concussion in late October, and he is still just 19, and not every highly touted rookie, even one who was a draft’s No. 2 pick, develops at the same rate. Those surgeries and their effect should not be understated. “I try not to think about that too much,” Patrick said at the Flyers’ morning skate Tuesday, before their game against the Penguins. “I don’t want to make excuses for anything. It’s part of the game, and it’s something you have to work through.”

How Will The Flyers Handle Nolan Patrick?

from Sam Carchidi of Philly.com,

What does he have to do to earn a spot with the Flyers?

“He’s got to do the same thing as all the other kids. He’s got to come in and show us that he can help make us a better team and that it’s the right thing for us,” Hextall said. “It’s truly that simple. We’ve got numbers. We don’t have to have him. We’ve got other kids who can play and we have veterans, so we’re in a good position with him.”

The Flyers are overloaded with centers. Because of that, veterans Jori Lehtera and Valtteri Filppula might be shifted to wing to make room for Patrick, Scott Laughton, or Mike Vecchione.

As for Patrick, Hextall said the Flyers “are not going to force him into our lineup. We’re not going to force any of these kids to be in our lineup. We certainly feel that of the group that has a chance to make our team, we’re comfortable enough that we can fill our team with those kids rather than the free-agent market. But they’ve got to earn it.”

A Look At Nolan Patrick

from Kristina Rutherford of Sportsnet,

It never really occurred to the kid teammates call “Paddy” that he might do anything but play hockey. He claims to come from “a normal hockey family,” but there’s nothing normal about one that has produced — so far — a pair of first-round NHL picks, in his dad, Steve, who played 250 career games, and uncle James, now an assistant coach with the Dallas Stars after a more than 20-year career in the league. A second uncle, Rich Chernomaz, played 51 games in the NHL. Patrick’s older sister, Madison, 21, just won a national collegiate bronze medal with her UBC Thunderbirds, and younger sister, Amy, 14, plays Bantam AA for the Titans in Winnipeg. And then there’s the contingent outside of hockey: Patrick’s mom, Carrie, played volleyball for Team Canada, and Grandpa Stephen played in the CFL. So, you get what Patrick means when he says, “I didn’t know anything different.”...

Patrick’s hockey career began a very flat two-and-a-half-hour drive from Brandon, first on the backyard rink Steve made every winter for his three kids, and then on his first team, the Heritage Victoria Hawks, where he played alongside Madison and other eight-year-olds when he was only six. “Even then you could tell he could keep up with everyone,” says Madison, a defenceman for the Thunderbirds. “And he knew where to be.”

That’s saying something for a six-year-old. The year before that, at his first NHL game — to see the Buffalo Sabres, because Uncle James was on the coaching staff — Patrick remembers being curious about plays and players, a first hint of the cerebral quality and playmaking ability that define his game today. “I always watched more closely than the other kids,” Patrick says. And he had sounding boards for all his questions in his dad and uncle, who, when it comes to hockey, taught him “just about everything I know,” he says. That includes how to train. Patrick’s dad turned the family garage into a heated indoor shooting area (there was no space for cars; in the winter, those stayed outside in the snow). It’s now a gym for the whole family, and there’s a shooting pad in the backyard. Patrick also worked out with his uncle every off-season starting at age 13.
