BC Men’s Hockey Alumni

Barry Almeida: Almeida has been playing in Europe this season after spending 4 seasons in the AHL and ECHL. He recorded 1 goal and 4 assists in 3 games with Gherdëina. After leaving Gherdëina he joined the Coventry Blaze in the EIHL. He has 8 goals and 20 assists in 23 games with the Blaze and leads the team in both points and assists.

Cam Atkinson: Cam Atkinson is having a tremendous season and is behind only Sidney Crosby in goals (he has 24 to Crosby’s 28). Atkinson had 53 points in 81 games last season and currently has 46 points in only 48 games. He leads the Blue Jackets (NHL) in points and goals and is tied for second on the team with 22 assists. Atkinson was a replacement player for the NHL All Star Game, but really should have been on the roster initially.

Brad Barone: Barone has spent this season in the SPHL with the Mississippi RiverKings. He has a .917 save percentage. Barone holds an 11-7 record and has earned 2 shutouts.

Brian Billett: Billett has spent the majority of the season with the Knoxville Ice Bears (SPHL). He was recently loaned to the Greenville Swamp Rabbits (ECHL) but has yet to play. Billett has a 9-4 record for Knoxville this season with a .916 save percentage.

Patrick Brown: Brown has played 42 games for the Charlotte Checkers this season and is an alternate captain. He has 31 points and 31 penalty minutes.

Brian Boyle: Boyle is in his third season with the Tampa Bay Lightning (NHL). Boyle is on pace to exceed his recent season point totals - his high over the past 4 years was 24, and he already has 18 points this season.

Paul Carey: Carey has had a terrific season for the Hershey Bears (AHL) including a 19 game point streak. He is tied for 3rd on the Bears with 31 points - he has 13 goals and 18 assists. Carey has also played in 3 game for the Washington Capitals (NHL).

Tommy Cross: Cross is the captain of the Providence Bruins (AHL) for the second year in a row. He is on pace to match or surpass his previous season point totals, with 19 points over 42 games so far. He had a career high 23 points last season.

Thatcher Demko: Demko plays for the Utica Coments (AHL). He has a .901 save percentage and 2.84 GAA over 21 games. He earned a 1 game call-up to the NHL earlier this season but did not see any action.

Brian Dumoulin: Dumoulin recently returned to the Pittsburgh Penguins (NHL) from an injury. He has 7 assists over 37 games and has a negative +/- for the first time in his NHL career with a -10.

Patrick Eaves: Ten years in, Eaves is having the best season of his career. He has 31 points already, only 1 away from his career high of 32 points in 2006-07. He has 18 goals, tied for the team lead with Tyler Seguin, and is third on the Stars roster in points. He has 10 power play goals this season, which puts him in second place in the NHL.

Johnny Gaudreau: Between his first long-term injury and a few offensive slumps, Gaudreau is having a bit of a down year. He had 30 goals and 48 assists last season, while he currently has 11 goals and 20 assists. Obviously those would be great stats for most players, but the Flames are hoping to see more offense from him in the second half of the season. To be fair, it has seemed that other players have targeted Gaudreau more this year than in years past.

Nathan Gerbe: After spending 8 season in the AHL and NHL, Gerbe is now playing in Europe for Genève-Servette HC. He has 5 goals and 10 assists over 20 games.

Brian Gibbons: Gibbons is in his first season with the Albany Devils (AHL). He has 9 goals and 10 assists in 39 games. Last season he had 23 points in 63 games for the Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL).

Adam Gilmour: Gilmour has spent his rookie season with the Iowa Wild (AHL). He has 4 goals and 6 assists in 41 games.

Brian Gionta: Gionta is in his third season as captain of the Buffalo Sabres (NHL). He’s been having a good year considering the fact that he’s a small, veteran player. He has 11 goals and 13 assists so far this season and could end up having his best offensive year as a Sabre.

Stephen Gionta: Gionta missed a lot of time early this season due to injury. He has played 7 games for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (AHL) and 4 for the New York Islanders (NHL). He recorded 1 assist with the Islanders and has 3 points with Bridgeport.

Noah Hanifin: Hanifin is in his second season with the Carolina Hurricanes (NHL). He has 2 goals, 13 assists, and a -12 rating. He should end the season with similar stats to those he had last season.
