Pereira Blazing His Own Trail

Hockey’s Future has perhaps the best profile of Mike Pereira I’ve read yet. The article features a number of highlights of the talented winger, from wanting to grow out from under his brother’s (BU’s Joe Pereira) shadow to “feeling at home” in Amherst. Like other features on Pereira it stresses his skating ability, as well as his vision. But it also speaks of skills like his ability on the forecheck which reminds me of guys like James Marcou and TJ Syner, whose forecheck ability really stood out when I saw him play in juniors. Hockey’s Future has him as one of the top 36 prospects in USA juniors, including those in the US National Development Program.

Both Pereira and incoming goalie Jeff Telgia are featured on Hockey’s Future college commitment prospect list.

This is a little late finding, but apparently Jeff Teglia’s style is a bit unorthodox. Hey, whatever it takes to stop the puck. Tim Thomas won a Vezina with the same approach. Not to mention that Hasek guy.

The Army game at the Mullins mentioned a couple weeks ago has been confirmed for November 5th. Am I the only one who sees a perfect fit for a Massachusetts Soldiers Legacy Fund fundraiser?
