Ryan Tocicki was around when losses were commonplace, so he is especially enjoying Holy Ghost Prep's sudden rise to prominence in ice hockey. However, the ever-confident Tocicki isn't shocked by the team's 11-3-1 start in the Lower Bucks County Scholastic Hockey League. "I expected this," the senior center said. "We have a nice mix of veterans and younger players, we're getting good goaltending, and we have a lot of confidence in ourselves. I knew, if we played up to our potential, that we could have a record like this.

Phantoms coach Bill Barber has rebuilt his team - line by line, newcomers around veterans, and speed couched with strength - for the start of another American Hockey League season. Barber used the team's spine - veteran centers Shawn McCosh, Jim Montgomery and Peter White, the three-time AHL scoring champion - to stabilize the scoring lines, and said "that core" was all he needed to give the defending Calder Cup champion Phantoms, the Flyers' top farm team, another chance at the title.

Conwell-Egan's Mitch LaFleur is not trying to fill the skates of former teammate and scoring phenom Brian Tetley. While LaFleur is quite capable of sticking the puck in the net, the senior center realizes that no player will duplicate Tetley's record-setting numbers. A standout for the Eagles from 1996 to 2000, Tetley scored 198 points, with 101 goals and 97 assists, over the last three Lower Bucks County Scholastic Hockey League seasons. The speedy forward/defenseman led the Eagles to their first Class AAA Flyers Cup championship in 1999.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Flyers center Danny Briere, who missed the first four games because of a hairline fracture of his left wrist, made his first appearance of the year Saturday night. Before the game, Briere said he had no problems shooting the puck, but faceoffs still gave him difficulties. He began the night at left wing. Earlier in the day, general manager Paul Holmgren said Briere was "probably a no-go" for Saturday, but Briere apparently talked his way into the lineup. Briere played on a line with center Sean Couturier and right winger Jake Voracek.
