Trying to boost the scoring game in the absence of Sven Bartschi, the Portland WinterHawks acquired left wing Marcel Noebels from the Seattle Thunderbirds for center Seth Swenson, and two future first-round picks. Noebels, a 6’2, 210-pound 19-year old from Germany, was the 4th round choice of the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2011 entry draft.   Rated as one of the Flyers’ top offensive prospects by Hockey’s Future, Noebels has a powerful slap shot, and drives hard to net on the attack.  He had 54 points last season for the Thunderbirds, scoring 28 goals. “Marcel is a proven scorer in this league who will be a tremendous addition to our offensive core. He can play the power game as well, and will fit in well with our group,” said Portland WinterHawks General Manager and Head Coach Mike Johnston.

Tim Panaccio: My Rant on Hartnell

There are not many things Scott Hartnell and I agree on. He likes to get edgy with me and I like to reciprocate. In the absence of Chris Pronger, Hartsy is the only guy in the dressing room to spar with these days. But I truly believe he got royally shafted today when the NHL announced the remainder of its All-Star Team. In virtually any given season, Scott Hartnell is not...

Bryzgalov Gets the Start as Flyers Face Predators in Nashville
