Player Notes

 

Players notes are collected while watching games closely, focusing on a few specific players. All in-game notes on players are presented here to give readers a sense of what we are seeing while focusing on the player in question. Often (not always) a summary of the player's attributes is written after the game. Both the summaries and notes help to give a picture of the player's single-game performance and abilities, and is a tremendous aid for understanding a player.

It is important to know that the Hockey Prophets do not notate all games watched, and not all players viewed will have notes associated with them. However, we are constantly adding notes to the compilation. Follow us on Twitter @hockey_prophets to get alerts when new notes are added. Also, premium members can request player notes on specific players, and the Hockey Prophets will seek clarity from the oracles.

Player Name Note Type Note Writer Game Watched Viewing Method Game Date
Miro Aaltonen Note Aaltonen is a quick skater. Acceleration is key part of his game. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Miro Aaltonen Note Aaltonen playing some tough defense. Backchecking hard, picking up his man and making himself known. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Miro Aaltonen Note Aaltonen with a nice backcheck, might have saved a goal. Defensively is fighting for position. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Miro Aaltonen Summary Solid game for the Ducks prospect. Skating and puck handling is excellent. Aaltonen has always had the skill, but with a few years in Liiga has now matured physically, as well. He has been consistently putting up points and looks ready to play in North America. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols is a rough, plodding skater. Flat footed a lot of the time, not an active stick or position defensively. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Rodrigo Abols Summary Passed over in the 2015 draft, Abols has mades some solid strides this year. Has a nasty side of his game to go with good skating and a nose for the net. Edges could use work, but decent overall speed. Plays well in the corners and uses size to his advantage. Defensively, his positioning is good, but not good with his stick and can get caught flat footed. Still an interesting prospect that will take time to develop, but a mixture of skills that NHL teams will want. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols the only Winterhawk playing smart early. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols compete level is the best on his squad tonight, as it has been throughout the series Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols shot goes wide, but Glass throws the puck to the crease and it bounces around and in. Lucky goal. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols plays a 2-on-1 perfectly, Petit somehow makes a save. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols has a tendency to just wave at a puck carrier, would like to see him be heavier with the stick and use his reach. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols gets a goal standing off to the right of the net. Hard to move a player of that size. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Rodrigo Abols Summary Abols looks like a big kid still getting used to being 6’5. His edge work is sloppy, but decent straight-line speed and ok stride. With questionable skating, he needs to keep his feet moving. A few times he was caught coasting when a burst of speed to provide an outlet or support the puck would have been a better decision. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols drives the right wing, centers but no teammate can get a stick on it, keeps at it and still gets a SOG after stripping the puck from a Royal. Good shift. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols dangles in and gets the puck to a teammate, drives the middle to open space. Smart play. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols on the backcheck with the Royals threatening, gets in a passing lane and intercepts. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016

Rodrigo Abols Note Nice touch by Abols on a saucer pass that eludes a well-positioned Royal defender on the blue line. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Rodrigo Abols Summary Moving much better in the afternoon game, Abols showed decent skating with good hockey sense. Played a solid two-way game, but displayed more of a touch on the puck than seen previously. Has moved up in the 2016 draft rankings for me, solid middle-round pick with size and serviceable hands. Skating will be a work in progress. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Abramov showing some quick and skilled hands behind the net. Defenders will rub him into the boards and he still seems to exit with the puck. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Involved physically after the whistle. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Puck thrown to his side on the PP, where he showed good hustle to retrieve the puck against two Moncton penalty killers. Puck jumped on him for the rest of the PP, though. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Moncton wins the draw back, but Abramov gets to the puck first from right wing. Establishes possession in the offensive zone by outmuscling Conor Garland for the puck. Goal stems from this shift. He gets a secondary assist for his effort. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Can't get the puck out on the wall in the defensive zone. Leads to more zone time for Moncton. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Tried to do a bit too much in traffic in the slot. Passed on a shot to toe drag into more traffic, where he was eventually stripped of the puck. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Not the fastest player on the ice, but a very smooth skating stride. Will improve with added strength. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Creates a chance for himself walking off the right wing wall. Shot is right in the goalie's crest, through. He is tripped as he goes to the net, drawing a penalty. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Good burst of speed creates a 2-on-1 chance for Gatineau. Shot deflected into the netting. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Abramov trying to gain entry to the zone, but Moncton stacks up defenders on the blueline. Instead of dumping it in, he circles back. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note On the powerplay left circle, vision and hands allows him to make a pass back between his legs that could have ultimately earned him a beauty assist if not for a timely save. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Abramov doing it again, buzzing around the offensive zone and dishes to Ronning for a scoring chance. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Good patience to let the defender slide himself out of position, then pulled his hands in closer to his body to create a better angle on the goaltender, and his snapped wrist shot went off the blocker. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Great puckhandling to get the shot through an obstacle course of sticks, then gets away a nasty wrist shot. Saved. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Summary Abramov plays with a calm simplicity that underlines his on-ice awareness. Not the fastest straight-line skater, but he shows above-average balance and agility and ends up being more quick than fast. Does not look small when he plays, and he seems to get better with every game. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Starting to think that it is physically impossible to knock Abramov off the puck. Everyone is trying, and he keeps coming away with the biscuit. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Abramov creating on nearly every play. Both Ronning and Steele get chances with Abramov distributing the puck. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Vitalii Abramov Summary Abramov is a small, left-handed right winger with a motor in the offensive zone that is impressive to watch. The 5’9 frame that should have a hard time, seems to have checks and physical plays simply not affect him and more often than not, escapes with the puck. Defensively not as interested, but his skating and shifty edge work suggest this area can be improved upon. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Takes a solid hit from behind in the offensive zone, but absorbs it well and carries on play Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Very impressive pass on the PP. Given a bad pass in his skates, manages to find the puck and pass it to a teammate down low between his legs. Leads to a great scoring chance that wasn't converted. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Has a wide open shot from the slot, misses wide. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note An elite two way shift from Abramov. Blocks a shot on a 3-on-2 rush, then is down low helping out his defenseman on both sides of the ice. Causes a turnover down low, which springs Gatineau for a 2-on-2. Somehow with energy left, Abramov makes it a 3-on-2 by using a quick burst, impressive considering the hard work he put in earlier in the shift. Solid net drive on the odd man rush. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Adam Fox Note Fox with a tough shift, tries to jump the pass but gets burned. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Canada Live 8/5/2016
Jack Ahcan Summary One of the smaller players at NJEC, Ahcan is a smooth skating defenseman who most of the time makes a positive contribution with the puck. At only 5’8 there is an obvious physical disadvantage but the hockey IQ is good and he was able to out-think and out-position forwards much of the time. Ahcan was the USHL’s defender of the year in 2016 and is a dark horse for the WJC squad. Undrafted the last two years as a 1997 birthdate. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Jack Ahcan Note Ahcan small, but good footwork. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - White Practice Live 7/29/2016

Jack Ahcan Note Ahcan has a smart stick, it’s fast, in lanes, both hands on it and moving to the best position. Heady. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Canada Practice Live 8/1/2016
Jack Ahcan Note Jack Ahcan with a perfect open ice hit to separate the man from the puck. Great read Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Jack Ahcan Note Ahcan got caught with a stick check on Nic Roy. That isn’t going to work. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Canada Live 8/5/2016
Sami Aittokallio Note Aittokallio plays way out on top of his crease. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Sami Aittokallio Note Unlucky second goal, it will count against Aittokallio but it shouldn’t. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Sami Aittokallio Note Aittokallio comes way too far out. Aggressive is one thing, but he’s 6+ feet from the goal line. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Sami Aittokallio Summary One-time farm hand of the Colorado Avalanche now on loan, Aittokallio is aggressive to a fault. Angles are good, but plays beyond the top of the crease. Was good enough in this game, but can’t see that translating. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016

Alexandre Carrier Note Bad turnover on a cross-ice pass in his own zone. Leads to a good chance for Moncton. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Stuck in deep again, can't catch up on the back check. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016

Alexandre Carrier Note Lead pass to a forward is waist high and can't be controlled. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Carrier not on the ice after a late time out with the goalie pulled. Comes on with about 30 seconds left, and Moncton promptly scores an empty netter. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Good feet that move all the time, Fluid is the word. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Plays a good positional game in his own end, and engages offensively without putting his team at risk. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Summary A two-way defender who needs more experience to hone his skills into a professional-grade player. Jumps into the offensive attack and is effective in the offensive zone, and plays well in his own end. Just needs to polish his game, and a year or two at the AHL level should do just that. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Strips Garland, shows excellent gap control and manages to neutralize Garland's speed in this particular instance Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016

Alex Forsberg Note Forseberg looking more involved early. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Alex Forsberg Summary Played an engaged, two-way game with offensive ability, but lacked polish. As a 21-year-old in his fourth WHL season, more is expected of Forsberg. Was at least active in this game, previous viewings have not been positive, some without a single note. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Alexander Nylander Note Good motor on display by Nylander Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015
Alexander Nylander Note Obviously shows many traits as his brother, William. Vision is excellent, sees and feels the ice very well. Both of them are so good, lots of similarity in their games. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Sweden (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Alexander Nylander Note Fortunado, Belpedio and Schmaltz all lost Alex Nylander. That can’t happen. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Sweden (WJC 2016) Stream 12/28/2015

Alexander Nylander Note Intense on defense in the neutral zone in the first period, active stick hassling transitioning forwards. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Note Good read to intercept a pass in his defensive zone Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Note Gets his stick lifted and puck taken away Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Note The kind of play that makes one insane while watching Nylander: backchecking the puck carrier, then lifts off the gas at the blue line, giving his opponent a clean zone entry. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Note If you want someone who will be always on the move during the powerplay, then Nylander is not your player. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Note Hands are equally good receiving pucks as he is handling them Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Note Nylander line has a lot of talent but rushing on the PP to end the first period. Needs more patience to allow play to develop, losing handle on pucks often. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015
Alexander Nylander Summary Another game in which Nylander displayed superb hand skills, and a lack of urgency that is maddening. There is no doubting his talent, which is NHL-calibre to be certain, but at times his compete level is questionable, at best. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Note Day continues to do it all. huge pass to Nylander who throws on the brakes, gets back to the slot and is tipped in for the goal.

Alexander Nylander Summary Nylander is very confident with the puck, has the skills to mostly get it deep under possession at this level. Two assists but didn’t do much on the defensive side. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015
Alexander Nylander Summary Not Nylander's best game, by far. He looked like he was fighting the puck all night, and lost several opportunities as the puck skipped, rolled or bounced away from him. A game he'll want to forget, but the skill is all there. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Alexander Nylander Summary Simply another poor viewing for Nylander. He did not raise his game as I expected at the BMO game and was demoted to the third line in the final period of a tightly contested game. His skill level seen at WJC seems to be the high-water mark of the year in games of his I have seen. They were amazingly impressive in Finland, but enough modest efforts to now give me pause and likely drop him a bit in my rankings. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Alexander Nylander Note Engaged early with some physical play Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Alexander Nylander Note Shows off his stickhandling and finds McLeod cutting to the net Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Alexander Nylander Summary Not is best all-around game, but hindered quite a bit by a lot of line-juggling by the coach. His playmaking ability was really on display with the McLeod goal, but he didn't generate a lot of quality offense other than that. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Alexander True Note True having a hard time covering the point guys. Lateral movement is hard for him. Straight line player. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Alexander True Note True isn’t flexible or something. Hunched over skating style that is very stiff. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Alexander True Note Alexander True is a big, big boy. Player for the Seattle Thunderbirds, 18 points in 30 games so far for Seattle. Skating needs some help but sees the ice well Zachary DeVine Norway vs. Switzerland (WJC 2016) Stream 12/27/2015
Alexander True Note True’s skating is a concern. Zachary DeVine Norway vs. Switzerland (WJC 2016) Stream 12/27/2015

Alexander True Note Hunches over when he skates, like he's carrying a huge weight on his shoulders. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017
Daniel Altshuller Note Altshuller likes to keep the puck moving. No problem playing the puck thus far, a few times he could have slowed play down. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Daniel Altshuller Note Altshuller moves well around the crease, plays right at the top. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015

Daniel Altshuller Note 4:30 left and Altshuller with a great reaction left pad save after a deflected shot. Then a sprawl to block the rebound. Great sequence, solid positioning, good reflexes. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Daniel Altshuller Note A scramble in front of the Checkers net and Altshuller went to poke check the puck but did not keep his body straight and it got chipped over his shoulder. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Daniel Altshuller Summary Daniel Altshuller is a prospect whose rise from reach pick to solid prospect has been the result of hard work. A number of scouts and writers have taken note of Altshuller in the past few years. After solid numbers in his second ECHL season, was called up to the Checkers and did not look out of place in this viewing. Pro sized at 6’3 and 205 pounds, displayed high end reflexes and puck tracking. There are a few technical issues that need sorting out, but a goalie to keep an eye on as he develops. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Jaret Anderson-Dolan Note Anderson-Dolan has been a very interesting player. Not big, but smart with the puck. He’s shown good hands and playing with Yamamoto he has not looked out of place. Not a big player. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs Spokane (WHL) Stream 11/5/2016
Jaret Anderson-Dolan Summary JAD was the best player on the ice, always controlling the tempo and flow of the play when he was in the ice.

Jaret Anderson-Dolan Note Working hard on defense, even down 7-0 Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017

Jaret Anderson-Dolan Summary Lopsided game that saw his team down by a touchdown early, yet JAD worked just as hard on every shift throughout. He drives play in all three zones, and brings speed, acceleration and constent attack all over the ice. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Jaret Anderson-Dolan Note Anderson-Dolan works hards during his shifts, honest effort from him so far in this game. Zachary DeVine Spokane vs Kamloops (WHL) Stream 11/23/2016

Jaret Anderson-Dolan Note Always first to the puck Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Lias Andersson Note Well-disguised wrist shot beats the Finn goalie far side, low post. Great release on the shot, well-timed to use the defender for a screen and totally fooled the netminder. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Lias Andersson Summary Andersson has been a mainstay on HV71’s third line and been a contributor to the teams success. Overall, points aren’t coming as hoped but the youngster has not looked out of place or intimidated by the level of competition in the top Swedish league. Andersson has decent height at 5’11 but is very well built at nearly 200 pounds and uses the size well. He can float a bit defensively, but keeps his feet moving in the offensive zone and while not an explosive skater, it isn’t a knock either. Has the work ethic, defensive awareness and skill to package nicely as a second line center in the NHL if his development stays the course. Currently projects as a player in the top half of the first round. Zachary DeVine HV71 vs Luela (SHL) Stream 11/26/2016

Johnson is a player that you don’t always notice, as the subtle things he does denote good hockey sense that isn’t flashy. Can see how his vision and skating can translate to a North American game.

Rasmus Asplund Summary No holes in his game, that is the key with Rasmus Asplund. He was a key player for Sweden in every game and while might not have been elite at anything, no holes are in his game either.

Ivan Barbashev Note Barbashev blocks a heavy shot. Totally sold out on the block. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Ivan Barbashev Summary Barbashev plays a very North American game. Does everything well overall, defensively aware of his assignments, plays well in a team system. There isn’t a glaring hole in his game talent-wise. Development can be considered on track. The knock has been inconsistent efforts at time and this appeared to be one of those games for him.

Mathew Barzal Summary I have watched Barzal quite a bit, and his consistency is amazing.

Impressive player, can’t wait to see him in the NHL. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016

His best play of the night: his active stick takes the puck from Donovan Neuls and with quick mitts gets the puck up the ice to a winger, out of trouble. I said “wow” out loud and the fan next to me says “I know!” in agreement. Solid in all areas, time on the PP, solid skating and powerful backward stride, stick handling is able to both dance around attackers and defenders depending on need. Positionally knew where to be and broke up two plays on the PK that were dangerous. Fantastic viewing. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016

Kieffer Bellows Summary Keiffer Bellows is the USHL version of Matt Tkachuk. He is in the traffic areas, quick hands, decent skating, but just a hard nose that is always pointed at the net.

Kieffer Bellows Summary Bellows game hasn’t changed much, he’s just become bigger, meaner, and better. The idea of Bellows on the wing of John Tavares is insane.

Louis Belpedio Note Belpedio shoots the puck on net and Joe Hicketts deflects the puck past MacDonald. Cost USA a goal then gets one. MacDonald had it tracked and ready to make the right handed catch. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015

Ben Jones Note Ben Jones scores for the Ice Dogs, his fourth of the year for the ’99 birthday. Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Julius Bergman Note Bergman was getting put over the boards with more frequency in this game. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Julius Bergman Note Mueller and Bergman deployed together for the first time that I have noticed this year. They looked good together! Would like to see more of that. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Julius Bergman Note Bergman showing some sand in this game. Needs a bit more weight to back it up, but I like the add to the toolbox. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Julius Bergman Note Bergman needs to have fewer misfires from the point. More than any other defender, in my opinion. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Julius Bergman Note Bergman overall more confident in drills. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/10/2016
Julius Bergman Note Bergman’s skating is much improved. Quickness and edge work Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/9/2016
Julius Bergman Note Julius Bergman looking excellent in this practice. Doesn’t look much bigger than last season, needs to add muscle Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/8/2016
Julius Bergman Summary Bergman continues to develop. Tonight's game showed what he can do when properly prepared and his head is in the right place and his feet moving. Needs to consistently bring that, as the talent is there, now the will and work needs to be added every night. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Julius Bergman Summary Bergman with another assist, stick is much more active than in the last few viewings. Moving his feet more in the defensive zone. Needs more of this to contend for a NHL roster spot. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016

Julius Bergman Note Bergman having a nice period. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Julius Bergman Summary Improving each game I have seen him. Reminds me of a younger Dylan Demelo, more relevant to NHL teams than fantasy but I think he can make the show. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Julius Bergman Note Bergman with a poorly played 2-on-1 leads to a goal, struggling this game all around. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015

Julius Bergman Note Bergman saves a goal, effectively tying up the attacking forward Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
David Bernhardt Summary Bernhardt's skating was an area of real concern. Not a lot of power is generated and defensively his edge work and overall foot work need help. When he kept his game simple, he had a higher chance of success. Not an overly flashy player. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
David Bernhardt Note Bernhardt needs some leg strength added to his skating. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Sweden Practice Live 7/30/2016

David Bernhardt Note Bernhardt slow on the first few steps Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016
Christoph Bertschy Note Bertschy gets a step on Stolley and goes backhand. Very quick first steps created the separation and puck hound skills as well. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Christoph Bertschy Note Bertschy can skate. Wow. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Christoph Bertschy Summary Bertschy inserted himself in the game notes with a fiesty, fast-skating game. He is not a big player, but mixes it up physically and a good dose of sand in his game, always seeming to get a few whacks in after the whistle. Skating is excellent in all facets. Quick acceleration, lateral movement, stops on a dime, good top speed. Player to watch. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Christoph Bertschy Note Bertschy with a breakaway goal. Dell stops it with the blocker but it’s so hard it bounces back at Bertschy and richochets back into the net. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Christoph Bertschy Note Bertschy has had some extra curricular stuff going on with the lumber. Not dirty, got a bit of agitator in him it seems. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Christoph Bertschy Note Bertschy not afraid of the rough stuff. Takes Ryan hard to the boards, then nearly elbows Goldobin in the head coming back. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Christoph Bertschy Summary Quickness is a hallamrk in Bertschy’s game and it was on display in Stockton and again in San Jose. Skating is high-end and solid puck possession skills and confidence with the puck on his stick. If Bertschy had more size, there would be much more fanfare. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Christoph Bertschy Note Bertschy with a few feisty board battles in the 1st period. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016

Grayson Downing Note Downing could benefit from more urgency in his game, epsecially his skating and getting places. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Grayson Downing Note Downing needs to move his feet. Some shifts played at only about 80% Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Grayson Downing Summary When he was engaged in the play, Downing was a key contributor for the Wild. Too often I found him still or gliding and not doing much to support the play. He appears to allow the game to dictate what he does and not impose his will on the game itself. Poor overall compete level and that is a red flag for me. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Greg Betzold Note Betzold knocks in a scramble goal in front of Jack Flinn to tie the game. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Greg Betzold Note Betzold’s shot trickles through Flinn, Garlent knocks it in Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Greg Betzold Summay An NHL free agent, Betzold played hard all night and was a driving player on offense. He was signed as a free agent to get into the OHL and likely will have the same happen in the NHL. Motor and work ethic are high-end and the size and strength for the professional game. Might be a bottom-six skater, but one to keep an eye on if he does sign. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Chris Bigras Note Bigras with great move out of the zone at 17:40 of the 1st. Quick change of directions, eludes the hit and keeps the puck moving up the ice. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016

Chris Bigras Note Bigras tries on the blueline and 2-on-1 results: Goldobin passes over Haley's stick, no shot. Later in the shift, hooks and gets caught. Tough shift. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Chris Bigras Note Bigas has very good crossovers and moves laterally exceptionally well, gets over to his man immediately. Big skill he uses for his solid gap control. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Chris Bigras Note Broken play. A scrum at the SA bench, leads to a 3-on-1 with Bergman racing back after standing up for teammates. Bigras with a great onetimer to beat Grosnick knee-high glove side. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Chris Bigras Summary Bigras has continued to develop his solid, two-way defensive play. Not one to shy away from responsibility on either end of the rink, he displays defensive acumen as well as offensive capability. Showed a rounded, well-polished game that is nearly ready for the show. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016

Will Bitten Summary Bitten played hard and fast all night long. While not registering on the scoreboard, his efforts, complete level and high-end motor showed well. Did not take a shift off and worked hard. Needs to add muscle to his frame for his game to be more effective. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016

Oliver Bjorkstrand Note Bjorkstrand poke checked by Binnington at the last possible second. Danced through two Wolves defenders for a dangerous chance. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Oliver Bjorkstrand Summary Bjorkstrand exhibits excellent vision on the ice with a mixture of situational awareness and puck skills. His skating ability is an asset to his game and has acceptable size, but had a few instances when knowing better how to use his frame would have benefited him. Still figuring out the nuances in the professional game, but will likely challenge for ice time in Columbus soon. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Colin Blackwell Note Blackwell is a smaller player, but moves well and is working hard. Not seeing the quickness needed from a smaller player. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/9/2016

Mackenzie Blackwood Summary The winning goalie of the contest has 49 saves on 52 shots. Blackwood looked skittish in the first period, was overly active and uneasy in net. He calmed down as the game progressed and he went from blocking pucks to stopping pucks and finally making excellent saves late in the game. Blackwood’s calm game was excellent and he should work to bring that to all of his starts. Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Mackenzie Blackwood Note Blackwood fails to seal the short side, Saarela throws it back and it finds the space on his knee. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016

Brock Boeser Summary Boeser’s skating and nose for the net served him well at the NJEC. His decision making at times was a bit slow, but the right play was always seen. His release is among the best on any team, maybe top 10 of the prospects outside of the NHL. Was a key offensive driver on Team USA. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Brock Boeser Note Boeser takes too long to get a good Keller pass on net. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team White vs Team Sweden Live 7/30/2016

Benoit-Olivier Groulx Summary Size, skating and quality hands. Still looks raw and inconsistent at times. Takes a hit to make a play, and willing to engage in puck battles.

Shaw Boomhower Note Goes off for a clear boarding at 17:31 of OT, an ill-advised play that leads to the OHL championship goal against just 12 seconds later Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Shaw Boomhower Summary Plays an okay game, with a willingness to mix it up physically and go to the difficult spots, but his skating is problematic and his effort was inconsistent in this game. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017

Michael Botiz Summary Botiz and Point co-MVP’s for the East, allowing 1 goal on 44 shots and being under seige most of the night. Defensive talent was stacked on the West, East didn’t have much to work with but the goalies did very well. Point has issues with rebounds and some chunky movements, but battles hard. Drops his glove, a bit of Potvin glove position. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016

Evan Bouchard Note Playing on the penalty kill late in the game, good anticipation and read on the play Brian Fogarty London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Evan Bouchard Summary Bouchard is a sixteen-year-old defenseman playing a sizeable amount of minutes on a stacked team. He still has a lot to learn about the game, but he looks to be adjusting well to the speed of the OHL game at the top levels. Bouchard is on track to become a force of a two-way player. Brian Fogarty London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Evan Bouchard Note Bouchard playing too far off defenders, giving too much respect Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Evan Bouchard Summary Bouchard is a 2018 that is contributing and playing with poise. His defense is raw, but the pieces are all there. Amazing that a player this young is doing so much for a stacked London squad. Immediately must be considered a top 2018 prospect. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Gustav Bouramman Summary Constantly making bad plays with the puck. Passes were sloppy, looked outclassed on the ice. Constantly surprised by the speed of the opposition, not a good sign at this level. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016

William Boysen Note Boysen makes sure the Russians know he came to play with a nice open ice should check. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Jeremy Bracco Note Bracco’s skating is not adequate. Huge red flag. Crossovers are sloppy and odd kick-step going right. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Jeremy Bracco Note Bracco takes too long to shoot a good cross-ice pass. Should have been a one-timer Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team Blue vs Team Sweden Live 7/31/2016
Jeremy Bracco Note Bracco falls down again unaided by a London Knight. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Jeremy Bracco Summary I was excited to see the offensive dynamo that so many said had improved his skating. It didn’t look much better at all to me. His vision is there, he has good hands, but the skating still needs massive improvement. He hasn’t done enough where he can move on, to this point. Skating can be taught, and can take time, likely prolonging his entry to the next levels of hockey. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Jeremy Bracco Note No power from his strides Brian Fogarty London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Jeremy Bracco Note Feet go straight back with a high kick. Losing a lot of speed and power because of faulty skating mechanics Brian Fogarty London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Jeremy Bracco Note Good balance when he's not trying to skate anywhere Brian Fogarty London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Jeremy Bracco Summary Bracco looks like a player who wants to make an impact on every shift, and sometimes he does, but most of the time his feet let him down and he simply can't get to where he needs or wants to be. His skating is a major concern and at this point limits his opportunities. Brian Fogarty London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Jeremy Bracco Note Bracco’s skating is much improved since last season. Looks to have been working hard on it this summer. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Blue Practice Live 7/29/2016

Erik Brannstrom Note Quck, alert, constantly working to get position Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Erik Brannstrom Summary Highly intelligent, highly skilled defender who anticipates the play better than most players on the ice. Quick on his feet forward and backwards. His passing is superb, including long headman passes and cross-ice, one-touch passes on the tape with the perfect weight to make them easy to recieve. Never stops moving, and his ability to map out the play in front of him means that he is always aware of what his next move will be.

Erik Brannstrom Note Just made another crisp, clean one-touch pass. His anticipation is excellent Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Erik Brannstrom Note Nice, long pass through the middle, right on the tape, through traffic. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016

Erik Brannstrom Note A great play on Puljujarvi as the big Finn was entering the zone: kept excellent gap control, poked the puck off of Puljujarvi's stick, and then got up into the Finn's chest to completely break up the attack Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Erik Brannstrom Note Finally misfired on a pass, but then he sped back to his own end to recover the puck. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016

Brett Murray Note Murray has a choppy first couple of steps. Gets up to speed well and can keep up with the play but not quick off the draw. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Brett Murray Note Murray is a big kid but not good on his feet, it is holding him back as this game goes on. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Brett Murray Note Murray not showing a lot of refinement or possession skills. Raw player. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Brett Murray Summary While only one game, Murray did not help himself. Skating was a major red flag and he was always caught by the speedy West defenders. Played smaller than his 6’4, 196-pound frame would suggest. A long-term project, there are a number of holes that would need to be addressed. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Brian King Note King lays a nice open ice hit, eliminating the puck carrier. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016

Brian King Note King is seeing the play he needs to make, having some tough puck luck. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brycen Martin Note Martin’s carelessness with the puck leads to another icing. Almost turned over the puck by leaving it behind the net for a forechecker. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Brycen Martin Note Martin with a steady play, took the puck behind the net, shielding the puck from the defender, carries and makes a smart hard pass. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brycen Martin Summary Martin played a great series. Multiple times he made a hard play with the Portland forechecker draped on him. Took care of the puck, and carried it up the ice. Only made one or two real mistakes with the puck while playing heavy minutes. Skating is solid and defensively was the best Silvertip over the four game sweep. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brycen Martin Note Martin again just whacks at the puck, not much composure with it on his stick. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Brycen Martin Note Martin does a strange hop to pivot to back-skating and cannot accelerate well because of it. Skating needs work. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Brycen Martin Summary Brycen Martin was careless with the puck. Passes were not crisp and shots were often into shin pads. Skating needs some attention as well, especially laterally and pivots. Not his best game, but has some upside. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Brycen Martin Note Good read by Martin to intercept the puck and turn a defensive stop to an offensive zone faceoff. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016

Brady Tkachuk Note Buzzing early and creating havoc Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Like his game a lot: size, effort, physicality. Not as skillful as his older brother, maybe, but his intensity in immeasurable. Not a face-punher, just a dominant force. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Good stickhandler in traffic, willing to take a hit to make a play and able to absorb it Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Might be faster straight line than his brother, might be nastier than his brother, but I'm not sure he's as talented as his brother. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Beautiful sequence: Battles down low, chases down the breakout attempt, lifts the stick, steals the puck, finds Norris at the doorstep for an easy goal. Favorite part of the pass was the deft weighting. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017

Rihards Bukarts Note So much to like in Bukarts game. Grit a bit of nasty, good wheels and good hockey sense. Can’t believe he isn’t signed. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Rihards Bukarts Note Bukarts on the hard, solid back check to eliminate his man. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Rihards Bukarts Summary Bukarts was the most consistent player on a wildly inconsistent team, both in this series and during the year. Small at 5’9 but highly elusive and quick on his skates with solid top end speed. Hands and confidence with the puck are also very good. He didn’t post triple digits as an overager, but was highly effective and is deserving of a contract to see what type of small player he could be but he has a full arsenal of skills and a solid dose of grit as well. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Rihards Bukarts Note Bukarts is very good skater, elusive and shifty. Good on his edges. Gets to where he needs to be Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Rihards Bukarts Note Bukarts has good vision. Aware of what is going on in the game and on the ice Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Rihards Bukarts Note Bukarts has a dangerous array of shots to select from. Good release from multiple angles, not afraid of shooting, changes looks at the goaltender often. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Connor Bunnamann Note Bunnamann is a big kid. Mixing it up in the corners and is not afraid of anyone. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Connor Bunnamann Note Bunnamann is a decent skater, but edgework needs attention. Laterally not quick at all, and turns are not sharp. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Connor Bunnamann Note Looks a bit soft, a bit more gym time could have him doing better without the extra weight. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Connor Bunnamann Note Bunnamann played solidly for the Rangers. His skating straight line is good, but edgework and movement in the hips was lacking. For a big man, seemed to lose body position fairly easily even as he was crashing into the corners. Shot was decent as well. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Bowen Byram Note Plants a shoulder into the puck carrier, knocks him off the puck, and when another opposing forward grabs the loose puck and tries to go by him, Byram plants a shoulder into him, too, and knocks him off the puck as well. Serious physical play from the 15-year-old blueliner Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Bowen Byram Note Good balance, but needs to clean up his backward skating a bit. Fortunately, he has plenty of time to work on that before his draft year. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Bowen Byram Note Nice positioning against Glass one-on-one on the right-wing boards Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017

Bowen Byram Note In overtime, gets the puck behind his own net with Caleb Jones on him, and skates the puck into the neutral zone, showing his skating ability in a dead match against the fluid Jones. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Bowen Byram Note Disciplined on his penalty kill duties and positioning. Also, the 15-year-old has top pk unit duties Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Bowen Byram Note Makes his first really bad read in the these last two games: came out of his position on the right side of the crease and allows Blichfeld a hole for an easy step-up goal. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Caleb Jones Summary Caleb Jones not on the scoresheet but makes good, fast decisions with the puck. Sees the ice really well and haven’t seen a bad pass or play from him all night. Steady play all around. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Caleb Jones Note Jones wakes up, but again not using his teammates. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016

Caleb Jones Note Jones trying to do too much on his own, not using teammates Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Caleb Jones Summary Continues to confuse me. At times has solid puck skills and good decisions. Next shift is selfish and forcing plays while carrying the puck. Has a tendency to skate himself right out of the play as well. Physical tools are there, but the on-ice awareness and use of teammates has to be much better. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Caleb Jones Note Caleb Jones has some impressive skills, but I’d like to see him use his teammates more. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team Blue vs. Team Finland Live 7/30/2016
Caleb Jones Note Jones hops more than he transitions Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Caleb Jones Note Parts of Caleb Jones’s vision worry me. He can hone in on a play and not see his teammates, both with the puck and defensively, as well. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Caleb Jones Note Takes a risk trying to bat down a pass with his hand and attack, but fails to collect the puck, turns and chases back to the right spot and intercepts a pass in the D zone Brian Fogarty USA vs. Latvia (WJC 2017) Live 12/26/2016

Caleb Jones Note Jones with two clearing attempts intercepted. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Caleb Jones Note Had the game-winning goal on a smart defensive play: Rubs Tyler Soy out on the boards in order to seperate the man from the puck, skates out of the zone, smart pass to a winger, drives the net to pot the game winner. Jones isn’t as dynamic as his brother, but the hockey smarts are there and he is a very good skater. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Caleb Jones Note Jones either does too little to far too much. Needs to find some middle ground in his game. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Caleb Jones Note Jones has very good acceleration and balance on his skates Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Caleb Jones Summary Jones’ series could only be viewed as a disappointment. He was largely quiet for long stretches of the game and had trouble carrying the puck against the Everett trap. When he was noticeable, he was trying to do everything by himself and force plays. Liked his game better earlier in the year. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016

Brandon Carlo Summary Complete defender. Active and engaged all night, displayed good physicality, defensive responsibility and a good bit of offensive jump,as well. Smooth skating, and a quick transition game helped him drive possession and get chances on the Everett net Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs. Everett (WHL) Video 12/2/2015

Brandon Carlo Note Carlo holds his own, solid defensive play thus far. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Casey Fitzgerald Summary Understated and simple game, Fitzgerald had a lot of physical plays for Team USA. He was one of the few big bodies at camp and made sure he was sound defensively and careful with the puck. With so many skilled puck movers paired with him, not much was seen offensively, but he knew his role. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Casey Fitzgerald Note Fitzgerald with a big hit on Strome. Nice read Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Canada Live 8/5/2016

Casey Fitzgerald Note Fitzgerald with his best game. Great spot to activate, rings off the post Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Canada Live 8/5/2016
Cavan Fitzgerald Note Fitzgerald could take the body more in drills, they can’t hit, but he allows too much physical space which is not a good habit. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/9/2016
Cavan Fitzgerald Note Fitzgerald has a powerful backwards stride, passed a number of players concentrating on form over speed. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/7/2016
Cavan Fitzgerald Note Fitzgerald with good, fluid hips, opens up and pivots well. Not the fastest skater, but gets to where he needs to be. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/7/2016
Conor Garland Note Seems deterred by physicality of the game early on. Backchecking has been lazy the first few shifts. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Goes up and down the bench during a time out trying to pump up his teammates. He's doubled over at the end of the bench afterwards. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note So quick and ellusive with the puck. Very active. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Nonchalant entering the zone and the defender just took the puck away from him Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note In the defensive zone, gave a token reach for a puck. Looked like he was more interested in creating a breakaway than disrupting the opposing attack, and this allowed the puck carrier to step into the slot for a scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Not having a good period, at all. Whiffed on an attempt to shoot a moving puck back into the offensive zone instead of making a better, safer play. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note That was a bit more of what is expected: a hard-working shift with creativity and vision in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Garland is such a masterful pest. Every time I watch him, he has the opponents chopping, slashing, elbowing him all over the ice. He drives his opponents crazy. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Summary Not Garland's best game, even though he did have moments in which he sparkled. At times, the Gatineau frustration hits seemed to get to him a bit, and at other times he seemed energized by them. Ulta-quick with the puck, but in this game he looked more interested in creating chances than in winning the game. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Stripped by Carrier Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Another half-hearted back check. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016

Conor Garland Note Takes an elbow to the back of the head. Gatineau really keying in on him physically. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note His game is built on his speed. He easily created distance between himself and opposing forwards trying to track him down. Certainly not afraid to try to be creative in one-on-two or one-on-three situations, but hasn’t been able to break through tonight. Gatineau's early physical play on him pays off throughout the game. It is slightly concerning that he took a few solid hits. Might not have the escapability that small players need to thrive playing in the NHL. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Constantly calling for the puck. Not much of a distributor of the puck and his instinct seems to be to shoot first. Hard to believe he had 89 assists in the regular season. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Rarely ventures below the hashmarks in his own end, but does a very good job covering his points. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Garland is one on three and tries to cut to the middle, but he is not successful. Have to respect his creativity, even though it didn't get him very far on this night. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Thomas Chabot Note Chabot carries into the zone and dumps to Strome with a perfect shot by Strome. Van Pottelberghe went down early and Strome’s perfect shot cuts the lead in half. Bad goal for the Swiss to give up. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/29/2015

Thomas Chabot Note Sensational defensive shift in which he had to move out high to cover for a low forward, then recognized the flow out of the corner, stepped down to take the releasing opponent as a 2-on-1 began to develop, and cut past the puckcarrier to take the play away from both attackers and completely disrupt the play Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Thomas Chabot Summary Impressive in all aspects of the game. He has the size at 6'2, 190 pounds, is exemplary on his feet in all four directions, smart at both ends, reads the play in front of him and does not overcommit on the play. On top of the that, he has really good hands, as well. A top-pair NHL defender in the making Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016

Thomas Chabot Note Chabot having a great, well-rounded game so far. On PP2 and a few intelligent defensive reads and has activated twice in good positions to do so. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/29/2015

Sasha Chmelevski Note Lets up on a backcheck that allows his man a net-front scramble chance Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Dennis Cholowski Note Cholowski showed good awareness, joining the rush then tracking back to cover the crease as Murray was out playing the puck. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Note Cholowski evades the forecheckers well, both as he comes out and in the corners. Was lined up a few times but sidestepped and got the play up the ice. Cholowski the most impressive defenseman thus far. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Note Cholowski draws a penalty by making his opponent miss a hit and drag him down. First PP of the game. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Note Cholowski with his first intercepted pass at the 13 minute mark of the second. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Note Cholowski fools the crowd, had Botiz beat but it was on the side of the net. Everyone has seen his performance and the “ahs” were earned, even if the puck didn’t go in. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Note Cholowski with a jailbreak pass to 10, Botiz closes the pads. Great pass. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Note Cholowski catches Murray who has a open look at the empty net and gets a stick blade on it. Kid having the game of his life. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Summary Easily the best player in the game in my viewing. Cholowski displayed all tools you would want from a top defenseman. Nothing was lacking in his game at all tonight, showed exceptional defensive zone awareness and positioning, possessed the puck well in the neutral zone and made many heady plays and nearly had a goal whilst playing opposite Fabbro. Needs to add muscle badly, but high hockey IQ kept him from taking any big hits and was always calm, nothing seemed to rattle him. Set to play for St. Cloud State in 2017. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Christopher Paquette Note Paquette is fast at top speed. First few steps are just okay. Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Chris Brown Note Not focusing on him, but need to note that he has a nasty disguise and patience on his wrist shot. Just befuddled the Wisconsin goatender for a hat-trick goal from distance Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Jake Christensen Note Christiansen scores on odd misplay at the blue line and Skoleski slides it over for a deflection to the back of the net past Hill. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Jakob Chychrun Note A fluid Skater, left-handed shot, good size. Slows the play down Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Not at all afraid to go end-to-end and very adept at it. Dangled through three opponents and got off a good backhanded shot that caused trouble for the goalie Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Calm, easy breakout pass leads to an odd-man rush and goal Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Another typical Chychrun play: puck carrier trying to move behind the Sarnia goal, and Chychrun uses mutliple tools to seal off the skater, active stick to dislodge the puck, then stick defense covering the man out the front of the net and eliminating a scoring chance Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Summary Chychrun is the complete package. Size, balance, agility, smarts, hands, energy and work ethic. He likely pkayed 30+ minutes in this game without noticeable mistakes, and controlled the game at times. Chychrun could be a future NHL All-Star Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note So calm with the puck on his stick, even when hounded by two of his league's best players Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Jakob Chychrun Summary At times Chychrun was the best player on the ice, controlling the tempo in his own end and making plays in all three zones. His game went a long way to cemented his place as the top defenseman in the draft. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Jakob Chychrun Note Chychrun exhibiting his usual tight gap control and active stick. Top three defenseman in this draft class for sure. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jakob Chychrun Note Chychrun ties up two forwards near the crease and bats the puck back into the corner. Elite. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jakob Chychrun Summary A subtle, but effective game for Chychrun, most expected him to dominate but he simply played well. His game is a two-way style and that was certainly on display. Offensive ceiling isn’t as a high as some others, but the floor is much higher as well. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jakob Chychrun Note Still worried a bit about Chychrun. Some of his plays wth the puck were very sloppy in the first period. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Jakob Chychrun Note Standing there on the PP, want to see some more activation. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Plays look lazy, but its just completely calm and confident in his abilities. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Long stick. Uses it well, few good poke checks. Very smart player, positioning is very solid for a young defenseman as well. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Summary A quiet game, but did everything right. A player you have to watch closely to get the nuances he is able to deliver. Immediately thought of Marc-Eduard Vlasic when I watched him the first time and I stand by that comparison. First game back aftering being a late cut on the WJC team, he could have pouted and instead turned in a solid, all-around performance. Top 15 pick. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Turns with ease. Solid agility Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015

Colin White Note White drives the net and gets a good lick on Samsanov, who was shaken up a bit earlier. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Colton Point Summary Botiz and Point co-MVP’s for the East, allowing 1 goal on 44 shots and being under seige most of the night. Defensive talent was stacked on the West, East didn’t have much to work with but the goalies did very well. Point has issues with rebounds and some chunky movements, but battles hard. Drops his glove, a bit of Potvin glove position. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
JT Compher Note Compher walks in on the off-wing and MSU drops early. Great shot and shot selection by Compher Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016

JT Compher Note Second goal for Compher, knocks in rebound on Connor’s shot. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
JT Compher Summary A great game for the senior center with five points in the contest including two goals. Compher and his line mates Kyle Connor and Tyler Motte were not often doing much defensively since they were constantly attacking the MSU net. Had a number of plays that displayed excellent vision and awareness in the offensive zone. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016

Kyle Connor Note Connor changes angles with the puck quickly. Fast hands and excellent edge work. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016

Kyle Connor Note Connor with a wicked release and a lot of power behind it as well. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Kyle Connor Summary Connor is currently tearing up the Big 10 and having an excellent season. Matching his line mate JT Compher with two goals and three assists, Conner landed five shots on net. Creative and dangerous throughout the game, the offensive capability of Connor cannot be overstated, averaging to date 1.7 points per game as a 19 year old. Needs to add muscle, but at 6’1 Connor has the frame needed in the professional ranks, where he will be soon. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Eric Cornell Note Goes back hard to the bench after a long shift Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016

Eric Cornell Summary Smart, all effort, possession-type player with the size and physical play to become a steady middle-six forward in the NHL. Not a lot of scoring upside, but could become part a team's core Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Louis-Philip Cote Note Cote paying the price in front of the net. Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016

Conor Timmins Note Pushes his slapshot instead of ripping it. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Conor Timmins Note Covers a lot of ground because his legs are so long, and his hands are nifty, but his skating is woeful Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Conor Timmins Summary Taller than he is big (currently listed at 6'1, 182), was not overly physical, but he did show good offensive vision and sense. In his own end, his positioning was okay, but his skating hinders his effectiveness in all aspects of the game. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Karlis Cukste Note Cukste has issues under pressure with the puck and not making the best decisions with it. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Scrimmage Live 8/11/2016

Karlis Cukste Note Cukste with a number of bad plays with the puck on his stick Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Scrimmage Live 8/11/2016
Jonathan Dahlen Summary The son of Ulf Dalhen, watching Jonathan skate brings back memories. He plays a very “Euro” game and struggled when the play got physical. He senses pressure and saw the ice well and I see him more as a playmaker than a shooter, but showed talent when ripping a shot off, as well. He wasn’t afraid to get in front of the net and did have a very nice tip-in goal, as well. His acceleration was below average. His overall speed was acceptable but the first steps need to be sorted out along with pivoting. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Jonathan Dahlen Note Dahlen with a good screen in front after carrying the puck in the zone. Made a lot of the first goal happen Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016
Jonathan Dahlen Note Dahlen needs help on the acceleration. Sluggish off the go Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016

Rasmus Dahlin Note Tremendous puck carrier, pushes defenders back with his speed and agility, and can fire a wrister once he's in the offensive zone. A dangerous weapon in all aspects of the game. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017

John Dahlstrom Note Dahlstrom with a good stride Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Sweden Practice Live 7/30/2016
Phillip Danault Note Great shift. McNeil took the puck into the offensive zone on the right side, crossed diagonally to the left circle with the puck on his left to protect it from the defender. Not a hard shot, but he got the puck on net. This entry was followed by a strong shift by McNeil and Danault with good possession down low. Both showed good possession abilities by shielding the puck with their bodies and creating time. The shift resulted in the first goal of the game at 3:43 of the first period. Brian Fogarty Rockford vs Texas (AHL) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2015
Phillip Danault Note Nice forehand-to-backhand that generated a tough shot and good scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Rockford vs Texas (AHL) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2015
Phillip Danault Note Hard pass from his backhand, but looked awkward doing so, like a very hard pitchfork pass. Still, had good accuracy on the pass and found the right open player with it. Brian Fogarty Rockford vs Texas (AHL) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2015
Phillip Danault Note While trying to launch a breakout late in the first period, Danault made a pass off his forehand from his own blue line while getting hit by a Texas forward. The pass was less than safe and ended up in a turnover. However, when looking at the play again, the pass attempt was the only solution to the situation, and in fact was just solid defense from the Texas squad. Brian Fogarty Rockford vs Texas (AHL) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2015
Phillip Danault Note Always driving the puck forward and moving his feet. Took a difficult pass high in the offensive zone, made a move up the middle and got off a backhand pass to the slot that could have become a dangerous scoring chance, but well handled by the Texas defense and broken up. Brian Fogarty Rockford vs Texas (AHL) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2015
Phillip Danault Summary Worked tremendously hard on every shift and seems to desire just one thing: to get the puck into the offensive zone. He backchecks, forechecks, protects the puck, makes smart reads and is willing to put the puck on the net. His backhand pass often takes a long time to unload with his pitchfork style, and that could cause problems for him at the NHL level, but otherwise his hands are good. More of a solid player than a scoring threat, Danault looks like a player who will make the NHL because of his hard work and smart play, as either a complementary piece on second line or an anchor on the third. Brian Fogarty Rockford vs Texas (AHL) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2015
Marcus Davidsson Summary A so-so showing for the 2017 draft eligible. He had the chops to hang in but a lot of times seemed to lack confidence with and without the puck. Timid at times, but when stops overthinking and plays hockey, it shows through. Will be interesting to see him play in more comfortable surroundings. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Marcus Davidsson Note Seems to lack confidence with the puck on his stick. Lots of passes that are ill-advised. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team Blue vs Team Sweden Live 7/31/2016

Sean Day Note Just not enough urgency in his game. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Summary Has all of the makings of a fine NHL blueliner, except the crucial quality of making good, timely decisions and urgent play. Day, at this point anyway, looks like a player who isn't relaxed and enjoying playing the game. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Note Litterally shrugged off a hit from Laberge, who then bounced off of the big defender and fell to the ice, while Day looked down at him. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Sean Day Summary Played like a first-round pick for most of the game, showing off his skating and puck handling abilities, but mental lapses are still his biggest issue. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Sean Day Note Sean Day makes a subtle play with a quick stick check on Nylander, end of offensive play. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Sean Day Note Day playing solid defensively. Not cheating on his assignments and controlling play in front of the net. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Sean Day Note Nice play by Day, carrying through the neutral zone, moves to the center of the ice for a great chance on net. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Sean Day Note Day carries through the neutral zone and passes to Kyrou who whips a cross ice pass to Brown who ties the game. All three players with awesome plays on that goal. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Sean Day Note Day with an undisciplined and dangerous play, lucky to only get two minutes Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Note Day has made a number of plays on the puck with his feet. Kicking the puck up to his stick, or having an attacker tied up and kicking the puck out of danger. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Sean Day Summary Sean Day is a player I love to watch but is an absolute enigma to peg as a prospect. His skating and vision are excellent but some shifts he simply seemed content to take his turn and not contribute to the effort on the ice. He is the very definition of a boom/bust prospect. He will either sort out his head or he won’t. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Sean Day Note Sean Day with a goal, good screen in the front of the net but perfectly placed shot just under the crossbar. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Sean Day Note Sean Day is playing well defensively. Should play a bit heavier in front of his net, where he seems to get to with partner Gibson doing the skating. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Sean Day Summary Day was not fully committed to this game. Numerous times lazy plays followed smart ones. Had a instance in the third period where he was able to use great footwork and a quick stick to breakup a dangerous rush. Later, he would simply lose his man. Had a high-skill goal to open scoring which only left you more frustrated with some of his more lackadaisical plays. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Sean Day Note Day makes two difficult passes look easy. Again has the tools, looks to be in better shape. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Blue Practice Live 7/29/2016
Sean Day Note Sean Day has been quiet but made a number of good plays with his feet and stick. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team Blue vs. Team Finland Live 7/30/2016
Sean Day Note Day active from the blue line and good skating allows for quick recovery. very noticeable in all facets of the game thus far. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015
Sean Day Note Day displays good vision and awareness. I like the blend he has of defense and offensive ability Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Summary Likely one of the most polarizing players, the skill is there, the skating is there but the “coach killer” traits that I have heard about showed up as well. Played much like a Brent Burns type player, moving around the ice like a “rover”. Still, I’d rather tame a tiger on defense. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015
Sean Day Note Day chose the hit over the puck clear from the crease. Immature play showing up here in the third in a few minor ways. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Summary Everything you have heard or read on Sean Day was on display tonight. Amazing skating ability, above average talent, fleeting interest in the game and a quick fuse that can hurt his team. I really like this player if he can ever get his head straight. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Note Kept his cool after Hague badly misplayed a three-on-two. Day found the puck and moved it to his winger. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Note Bad retribution hit, boarding called Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Alex DeBrincat Summary DeBrincat continued to make a case for being both a first-round draft pick and a third-round draft pick. His offensive skills are excellent, but he does not seem to engage in the game enough, and the hockey sense is questionable. At his size, he must improve in both of those areas or he will remain the biggest risk/reward player in the 2016 class. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Stream 1/8/2016
Alex DeBrincat Summary DeBrincat has three whacks at the puck on a shift and nothing to show for it. Whatever he is doing in Erie never shows up when I watch. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Alex DeBrincat Note Had three options on the powerplay, and he chose the worst possible play available to him Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Alex DeBrincat Note Debrincat with a stupid spear and gets tossed. There goes that. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Alex DeBrincat Note Debrincat works his ass off. Looks like Matthews' baby brother on that line, but earning a full share. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Alex DeBrincat Note DeBrincat streaks in and pots the great pass from Joey Anderson. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team Blue vs. Team Finland Live 7/30/2016
Alex DeBrincat Note Filthy centering pass from Debrincat to Logan Brown. First time either have been impactful offensively in the camp. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Brendan De Jong Note De Jong doesn’t have his stick tying up Millar stick. Defensive positioning is weak, especially for his size. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Brendan De Jong Note DeJong desperately needs to get meat on his frame. Good height. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brendan De Jong Note DeJong’s fluid skating. Good edges and good movement Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brendan De Jong Note De Jong defensively isn’t there. Bad body positioning, stick off the ice. Just absent defensively. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Brendan De Jong Summary De Jong has solid skating ability, but not much else. Needs lots of physical development, defensive game is a glaring weakness and did not exhibit the offensive vision or ability to overlook defensive mistakes. Might be a very long term project. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Dylan DeMelo Note Best situational awareness I have seen from a SJ dman. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Dylan DeMelo Note Massively better than the first game in the series, this was the NHL DeMelo we saw for the Sharks. His time in the NHL has helped his game and he looks more confident. Game looks slower for him. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Dylan DeMelo Note DeMelo turns over the puck and Sutter rifles a shot over the dropping Grosenick. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016
Dylan DeMelo Note DeMelo again with a turnover. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016

Dylan DeMelo Note Demelo deployed on 1st PP, as well. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Dylan DeMelo Note Demelo with a good pinch in during the last 5 seconds of the period. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Dylan DeMelo Summary Decent game from him, but not his best. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Dylan DeMelo Summary Decent two-way defenseman without much size or standout abilities. A good AHL defenseman, but I'm not sure there are any standout tools that makes him an NHL player Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Dylan DeMelo Note DeMelo looking much better early. Skating better and seems more comfortable with the puck on his stick. Had bad puck luck last game. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Dylan DeMelo Note DeMelo with a solid hip check, got across quickly and ended the attack. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016

Dylan DeMelo Note DeMelo with a smart pinch and pass across the crease to Bryan Lerg for the game-tying goal. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Derek Grant Note Derek Grant with another goal. Just playes well, dangerous all around. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Alexander Dergachyov Note Dergachyov’s skating is weak, not much of a stride. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar gets a shot, passes the puck across the crease, and a dangerous sequence. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Connor Dewar Note Connor Dewar fights off two Winterhawks and beats Hill with a laser. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar out on a PK in the last 30 seconds to protect the lead and win the series. Good stuff Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Connor Dewar Summary The 2017 eligible prospect played second line minutes for Everett and his work off the puck was excellent for a 16-year-old. Positionally sound, motor and compete level was suburb bordering on elite. Scored a goal in Game 4 with an impressive shot, one that makes you wonder if he should have shot more in the series/season. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar has his motor running a bit too high. Needs to play within himself a bit more. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar is getting worked over by any Winterhawk that can get to him. Still working hard. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar’s gritty game gets under the Portland player's skin, leads to a good bit of extra stuff and an Everett powerplay. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar with a great chance. His work in the dirty areas almost got him a greasy goal. Has a good nose for the net. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar with a tenacious shift. Hitting early and moving his feet. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Connor Dewar Summary High-motor guy that plays much bigger than his 5’10 listing would suggest. Not afraid of larger players in the corner and has a bit of sand and agitator to his game. Defensively solid for such a young player. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar has good movement laterally. Skating speed is good. Shifty player, which you like to see in the smaller players. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar still learning the smaller man's game. Trying to hit but hasn’t figured out how to leverage larger players out of the play, but angles are good. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar tips two pucks on the PP, one on net. Small and feisty. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar with a shorthanded attempt. Like his compete level, and when mixed with his very good skating, has made a number of dangerous plays in the offensive zone. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Connor Dewar Summary Dewar played well and was the a noticeable forward for Everett. Not the biggest player at 5’10, he was still active with physical play. Played well in high traffic areas, constantly in front of the net. Would have liked to see him with his stick on the ice a bit more if he is going to play this style of game. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar has blocked two big shots. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar with a quick shot on goal on the PP. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Connor Dewar Summary Dewar was a bit more quiet in this game than previous viewings, but was still deployed often and was skating hard. Defensively one of his better games blocking two big shots and harassing the points. Played well away from the puck in a game his team was trailing, which is good to see from a younger player. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Sean Dhooge Note If only he were 5'9. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Sean Dhooge Note When he touches the puck, a jolt rips through the arena. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Sean Dhooge Note Just completely gifted as a player--he goes hard every shift, fights through checks and traffic, superb vision and puck skills. Great hockey player whose size is truly the only seriously limiting factor Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Sean Dhooge Summary More fun to watch play than almost anyone in the game, but he has such a huge hill to climb at his size. I've said it before, but if you're not a fan of Dhooge, you're not a fan of hockey. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cody Donaghey Note A heady play on the PK. Faceoff in the offensive zone is won back to Donaghey. Instead of dumping it in, he immediately began skating backwards to his own blueline. Only then does he dump the puck back to the Gatineau zone. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Dylan Strome Note Strome comes back and is rightly rewarded for being the strongest Canadian player of the game. Hard wrist shot after Marner gains and drives the zone. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Dylan Strome Note Strome is on a mission. He says he’s done with juniors and with his play, I believe him. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Canada Live 8/5/2016
Dylan Strome Note Strome having a good overall game, Hicketts is fearless. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015

Dylan Strome Note Stome with a powerplay goal, drives net and wrists it in. Similar to the USA goal Zachary DeVine Canada vs. Denmark (WJC 2016) Stream 12/28/2015
Dylan Strome Note Coining “The Strome” where you come down the right wing, two dekes to get to the center of the ice and go glove side on the goalie with a hard wrist shot. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/29/2015
Dylan Strome Note Strome playing like his last game on earth. Love it. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Dylan Strome Note Strome with a great steal. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Dylan Strome Summary Strome will be with the Coyotes this year, he’s ready. Won’t be available for the WJC due to NHL ice time. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Dylan Strome Note Strome a bull in the center of the ice. Not afraid of the dirty areas and has the hands to be dangerous even in traffic and with a man dangling on him Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Canada Live 8/5/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Nice hit to win a puck, then turns and fires a tricky shot on net. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016

Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Solid backchecking effort to chase down a forward and lift his stick to eliminate a scoring opportunity Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Looks a step slower that the last time I watched him play in his draft year. Then two seconds later he splits two defenders with a quick burst to get to a loose puck and makes a sweet backhand pass to the slot Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Sets up in front of the net on the powerplay, works well to keep his spot, then goes for a loose puck behind the net, fights a 50/50 battle, the finds Barzal for a chip shot past the goalie. Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Summary Unless one was watching closely, it would be easy to say that Dubois was off his game, and he likely was a bit. But the skill and effort were there in bright moments. Big, intelligent player with high-end vision and skills and a willingness to use his body to make a play. Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note So hard to handle down low on the goal line, active, strong, heavy Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Cuts hard to the slot, draws a trip, fires a shot on his to the ice Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Liking his quickness in this game. He's looking more like he did in his draft year, and seems to have shrugged off some of the post-draft-year lethergy. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Impressive shift in the offensive zone. Makes a hit, disrupts the play, uses an active stick, throws another hit, creates a takeaway, then makes a heads-up pass with great weight to the slot for a prime scoring chance. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Again just driving the play around him. Draws a penalty. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Summary Dubois commanded this game from his first shift on the ice. Tenacious, fluid, always making something happen. Showed off his skills several times including a sick deke that left Sean Day spellbound. Dubois was seventh on my draft list coming into this game, and may challenge Nylander for fifth overall. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Dubois splits the defense, Fitzpatrick stays with him for the save. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Dubois and Laberge both with lackadaisical defensive coverage on that play. For all the offense they are creating, they are giving up some chances as well. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Dubois intercepts Abramov’s pass, drives the net, dishes a behind-the-back pass to Laberge, who passes back to Dubois for a goal. Wow. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Summary An amazing game from the left winger, finishing with 1G, 2A and a threat all night. Vision is excellent. A player that seemingly does everything very well, and it’s hard to pin-point a glaring weakness. He is moving up many draft boards and it is well deserved. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Dubois hitting hard , and often Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
JD Dudek Note Really good skating techniques: deep knee bend, great backwards s-cuts Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
JD Dudek Note His low skating style gives him such a solid base. He just took a clean hit in the open ice and just bounced away from it and stayed on his feet Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
JD Dudek Summary Skating is the key here, with the hope that the rest of the tools develop into a quality player. If not, he'll be a career AHLer. Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Christian Dvorak Note Dvorak with one touch pass from Marner, fakes backhand shot and slides it in for a London goal. That line just needs a mistake and can take over. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Christian Dvorak Summary Dvorak with 2+2, great well rounded game from him Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Christian Dvorak Note Defending on the 4-on-3 penalty kill Brian Fogarty London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Christian Dvorak Note Will throw his entire body into a hit Brian Fogarty London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Christian Dvorak Summary Dvorak is the cement on the London top line, the player who allows Tkachuk and Marner to run free. Physical, defensively responsible, and highly skilled, Dvorak looks like a player who will become a steady and reliable middle-six NHL center with good scoring upside. Brian Fogarty London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Martins Dzierkals Note Looks like a scoring threat any time he has the puck, but it hasn't resulted in any truly dangerous chances yet Brian Fogarty USA vs. Latvia (WJC 2017) Live 12/26/2016
Eemeli Rasanen Note Not enough speed at this point, but there's room for improvement with his big frame Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Eemeli Rasanen Note Skating needs work in all directions. Looks heavy-footed without much coordination. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Eemeli Rasanen Note Hulking presence, but lack of mobility really hurts him. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Eemeli Rasanen Note Curls instead of pivoting Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Eemeli Rasanen Note Looks like Chris Pronger, skates like Boris Valabik. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Joel Eriksson Ek Summary The captain of Team Sweden put in a fantastic effort. He lead by example on the ice with his high intensity of play. Offensively he’s always been good, but showed a number of very high-skill plays. His development has to be considered ahead of schedule and a higher output than expected. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Joel Eriksson Ek Note Eriksson Ek has been a force all camp. Plays big, good net presence. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Joel Eriksson Ek Note Eriksson Ek walks out of the corner and roofs it on Hart. Excellent shot. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Sweden vs Team Canada Live 8/4/2016

Joel Eriksson Ek Note Eriksson Ek gives Bjorkqvist a hard right to the post. Ouch. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016
Joel Eriksson Ek Note Eriksson Ek ends it in the shootout, which is fitting with his effort Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016
Hudson Elynuik Note I like his game: size, hands, smart at both ends, plays with an assumed authority. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Hudson Elynuik Summary Big, hard-working forward with good skills and instincts who is the kind of player coaches always want available to make a play. The offense is there, but he's not a big scorer. His contributions to his NHL team will come in the form of getting and keeping puck possession and tilting the ice in his team's favor. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson out on PK Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson again with a hardworking, dirty goal. Good low shot from Young at the point and he takes two whacks to get it past Ortio. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/27/2015
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson with a great play on the left wing to steal the puck and hit a streaking Barclay Goodrow who goes five-hole on Ortio. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/27/2015
Petter Emanuelsson Note Creative shift by Petter at 3 minutes left in the 2nd that draws a penalty. Playing hard and smart tonight, last three games have been very strong efforts for him. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/27/2015
Petter Emanuelsson Summary The last few weeks Petter Emanuelsson has been playing with vigor and purpose. Above average skating and good vision. A versatile forward, he is both defensively responsible but offensively creative. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/27/2015
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson with a strong move to the net, kicked out the right leg to protect the puck. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016

Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson ties up the stick of a driving Downing, saves a goal. Good back check. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson gets after the Wild puck carrier and allows Lerg to strip the puck and go in on the Wild goalie Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Summary One of Emanuelsson’s better games in some time. He has the skillset that could lead him to a third line role in the NHL but for weeks at a time some component of his game will trail off and come back when something else goes away. Consistency in skills is needed, his work ethic is always on display. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson has a good shot, quick release. Doesn’t always get in the best area for a scoring chance with it. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Summary Pettter Emanuelsson needs to be a bit more patient. He has a good shot, but rips it off every chance. Has had time and space and not used it. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson is playing a solid game, picking up two assists. Skating hard and playing smart. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanualsson again getting something started for the Cuda, Laurikainen has just been better today. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Summary A very well-rounded game by Emanuelsson who finally seems to have his feet under him in the last dozen games or so. Emanuelsson is learning the nuances that will make his successful in North America. When his call-up happens, he might not come back. Could do with a bit more shooting, as he has a good shot and release. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson with a wicked snap shot beats Ortio far blocker side. Great shot! Last two viewings of him have really shown something. Goodrow with the assist. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson works hard along the boards, digs and fights, positions himself well. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Petter Emanuelsson Summary Emanuelsson has really turned the corner in the last month after last year's terrible shoulder injury. Above average skating, good vision, good hands, solid defensive play, well rounded, three zone game. Has been seeing increased ice time as the season has progressed and is responding. A player to watch as the season continues, might be a call-up option later in the year and will challenge for a NHL roll next year. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson is on his horse tonight. Great motor evident, feet are moving and he is driving the net Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/27/2015
Erik Karlsson Summary The other Erik Karlsson is often muscled off the puck, but skates well. He does not have the taste for North American physical play and seemed out of sorts all night. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Dante Fabbro Note Fabbro didn’t even have to try to catch Murray. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dante Fabbro Note Fabbro plays angles very well defenisvely. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dante Fabbro Note Fabbro’s edge work is good. A right-handed defenseman, his reads have been solid early. Active and not cheating. Hands are advanced for this game. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dante Fabbro Summary Excellent two-way defender with skills and hands but also an understanding of his defensive responsibilities. Remained poised under forecheck pressure. Talented with the puck and excellent puck handling skills, but was too cute with the puck at times. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dante Fabbro Summary In a bad showing for Team Canada, Fabbro was a single bright spot on defense. Coming from the BCHL, there were questions about the level of competition he was against, but after the U18s and NJEC, it is put to rest. A lock for the WJC roster. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Dante Fabbro Note Fabbro able to deal well with aggressive forecheck and soft passes up the ice Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Canada Practice Live 8/1/2016
Dante Fabbro Note Fabbro might be the best defender in NJEC for Canada. Skating, positioning, everything teams saw at U18s is all there. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Canada Practice Live 8/1/2016
Dante Fabbro Note Fabbro creating some good chances from the back end. Been the best defender for Canada at camp. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Sweden vs Team Canada Live 8/4/2016
Joel Farabee Note Farabee's second goal comes after serious effort on the penalty kill. Ugly stride gets him there, smooth hands finish. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
David Farrance Note Farrance can fly in a straight line Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
David Farrance Note Farrance equals fast Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
David Farrance Note Chased down a clean breakaway. Kid can fly! Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Hudson Fasching Note Fasching causing havoc in front on the PP, comes out with the rebound and makes a centering pass to assist on the powerplay goal. Confident play. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Hudson Fasching Summary Fasching has very good hands and good instincts, but isn’t using his large frame to his maximum benefit. Physically ready for the next level. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Hudson Fasching Note Fasching drives the net and centers to Thomas Novak for his second in the last minute of play. Another one-timer to the wide side. It’s waved off due to Minnesota being offsides after review, but what a goal. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Sebastian Aho Summary Aho is a smart hockey player. Looked good all game, smart PK shifts, as well. Wasn’t a huge part of the championship game, but solid play for three periods in a high-stakes game is a skill itself. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Sebastian Aho Note Aho is criminally underrated as a part of the top line for the Finns. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Sebastian Aho Note Swedes are marking the Aho line playing man defense on them and some of the chippy stuff to let Laine, Aho, and Puljujarvi know it will be a long night. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Sebastian Aho Summary Tappara was extremely physical against Aho in this game, greatly limiting his effectiveness. His vision and hockey IQ is excellent, but neither matter as much when you are pinned along the boards or being held. A game like this is a good example of what Aho will need to overcome to be successful in North America with a more physical game and smaller ice surface. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Tappara (Liiga) Live 4/8/2016
Christian Fischer Summary Fischer has the wheels and compete level for the pro game, not sure the offensive upside is there. His ability to play both with and without the puck was good and not a single second of any shift was taken off. Hard working doesn’t begin to describe him, could have made better decisions offensively and not a lot of creativity. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 7/29/2016
Christian Fischer Note Christian Fischer has a great shot, skates well and drives the net with good speed and determination. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - White Practice Live 7/29/2016
Christian Fischer Note Fischer driving the net a lot. Not afraid of straight lines into traffic areas. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - White Practice Live 7/29/2016
Christian Fischer Note Fischer on the PK with a good strip and a shorthanded chance. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team White vs Team Sweden Live 7/30/2016
Jack Flinn Note Flinn way out on top of his crease, looking confident and with some good saves tonight thus far. Twenty-third straight start Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jack Flinn Note Flinn likes to go down early and gets burned on the fifth goal. Needs to stay on his feet to get post to post quickly to seal the far side. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jack Flinn Summary Tonight was the 23rd straight start for the 6’ 8” goalie who has been having an excellent season for the Steelheads. I still am not a fan of his lateral movement tendencies. Needs to allow the puck to come to him and keep upright more. Played small tonight and it showed on the scoreboard. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jack Flinn Note Good saves by Flinn, fought to see the puck and had a quick right pad save. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Erik Foley Summary Erik Foley was a revelation of a player at NJEC. He’s a solid, thick frame with good skating ability with a north/south style of game. He showed some patience with the puck and goal scoring ability, which is key in the professional ranks. Foley was a highly intelligent and self-aware young man when speaking with him. A complete package prospect. Still in college, but the Jets found another gem. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Erik Foley Note Foley with a flash of skill to dance the puck out of the corner and get a solid chance on net Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team White vs Team Sweden Live 7/30/2016
Erik Foley Note Foley with another quick strong play, but not a good shot. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team White vs Team Sweden Live 7/30/2016
Erik Foley Note Foley is strong on his skates, but balance can be an issue Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team White vs Team Sweden Live 7/30/2016
Erik Foley Note Foley can coast a little bit and needs to keep the jump in his step to be effective. He’s a better player when the feet are moving, More so than all the other players we say this about. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team White vs Team Finland Live 7/31/2016
Erik Foley Note Spoke to Foley and he immediately identified lateral movement as an area he’s working on. Highly in tune with his development, no stock answer. And he’s right, edges need help, as well as crossovers Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Practice Live 8/1/2016
Erik Foley Note Foley with good quick hands after a great centering pass. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Christian Folin Note Folin with a pair of good zone exit passes early. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Christian Folin Note Folin’s decisions seem to just take an extra split second. Might just be a confidence thing, his decisions have been sound and usually the safe play. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Christian Folin Summary Confidence with the puck is needed. His passes and moves up the ice need to come quicker, his decisions were not happening at AHL speeds in this game. Decent skater for a man his size and puck handling skills as well. But the mental side will need work. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Cal Foote Summary Easy to see why Foote is considered a top prospect in the 2017 Draft. Already physically developed, he is the latest to come out of the Kelowna Rockets defenseman factory. Decisions were good with and without the puck, skating is above average, defensive game beyond his years. First round talent with zero doubt. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Cal Foote Note Foote is the only 2017 left for TeamCanada and it’s easy to see why. Against Marner’s bag of tricks stayed calm and well positioned, then a smart poke check to thwart Marner, takes the puck around the net, and bulls through the small winger and carries the puck up ice. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Canada Practice Live 8/1/2016
Cal Foote Note Cal Foote with a perfect shot pass to tie the game. Good foot work got him into position on the play, excellent skater Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Sweden vs Team Canada Live 8/4/2016
Cal Foote Note Foote even at this young age, directing traffic defensively Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Sweden vs Team Canada Live 8/4/2016
Cal Foote Note Locks up his man well in front of the net, ties up his stick, keeps good position Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Cal Foote Note Tries to go D to D on the blue line when the better play was to push the puck into the corner, and the result is a turnover and a rush the other way Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Cal Foote Summary Skates and pivots well at his size, and gets to the right spot in his own end. Strong on his feet. Engages in the offense but does not dazzle in any respect of the game. Good tools, though. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Maxime Fortier Note On the powerplay, got off three shot attempts, but nothing overly dangerous Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Maxime Fortier Note Fortier can fly--his straightline speed is remarkable Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Maxime Fortier Summary Fortier is speed, acceleration and drive. He is not necessarily crafty with the puck, but does not hesitate to shoot and finds space whenever available. I didn't see him really generate offense on his own, however, though a lot of that might be due to Hischier running the offense and they share ice time. Hard to tell if he is a quality offensive player or complementing Hischier's game right now. I'd like to see him play without such an obvious playmaker. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Maxime Fortier Note Fortier not being drafted last year remains a mystery. top 60 pick this year. Zachary DeVine Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Stream 11/27/2016
Maxime Fortier Note Fortier shoots from anywhere and any position. changes angles quickly, deceptive release point Zachary DeVine Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Stream 11/27/2016
Maxime Fortier Note Gets really low when he has the puck, making him shifty and hard to wrap up down low. Combined with his quickness and agility, he's tough to handle below the circles Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Maxime Fortier Note Handles the puck really well in heavy traffic, constantly trying to make something happen. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Maxime Fortier Note All effort and effective energy in his own zone Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Maxime Fortier Summary Smart play with and without the puck, plays a high-work-rate, puck possession game with a nose for the net. Fights through traffic despite his smaller size, and uses his agility and balance to escape or absorb impacts. Lacks high-end creativity, but a quality player with good NHL potential Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Brandon Fortunato Note Fortunato on the PP with Belpedio. Not much size in that pairing but talent for days. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Sweden (WJC 2016) Stream 12/28/2015
Trent Frederic Note Frederic is playing with a lot more skill and creativity than when I saw him with the NTDP. Could have been a victim of being behind the big lines? Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Practice Live 8/1/2016
Trent Frederic Note Big body, decent quickness Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Trent Frederic Note Nice tip despite being cross-checked just as the puck was being shot. Concentration and balance to make a difficult play. Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Trent Frederic Note Pivots well backward to forward skating as he opens his hips for a pass Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Trent Frederic Summary Intriguing combinaion of size and skill with a solid foundation and strength in his skates. A project to be sure, but with good upside if he pans out. Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Martin Frk Summary Big motor, big hits, big mouth. Frk was an involved participant in all facets of the game. Mixing it up, physically imposing, willing to pay the price in the corners and in front of the net. Only one shot on the night but was still a player that you noticed because of his inspired play. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Grand Rapids (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/11/2015
Mathias From Note From and True combine for a very Canadian goal. Using speed and skill, circle the net, a perfect pass from From to True with a clean shot. Crouse and Hicketts both caught looking Zachary DeVine Canada vs. Denmark (WJC 2016) Stream 12/28/2015
Mathias From Note From drives the net at 13:50 of the second period, much like his drive in the first but again individualistic effort. That won’t work in the pro ranks at any level. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Mathias From Note From with a big individual effort and dangles through Provorov. Would be a much better player if he wasn’t such an individual out there and used his talent to bring up teammates. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Mathias From Note From with his 3rd end-to-end rush. I think it is a set play to get the offensive zone face off and frankly it is working. He does not care if it is 1-on-4, he is going at the net and so is the puck. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Mathias From Note Matias From’s overall skating very good Zachary DeVine Norway vs. Switzerland (WJC 2016) Stream 12/27/2015
Mathias From Note From flying, comes down left wing with an inside-out move on the Swiss defense for a SOG at 3:30 left in the 3rd. Zachary DeVine Norway vs. Switzerland (WJC 2016) Stream 12/27/2015
Mathias From Note Matias From playing well, showing good wheels at the 10-minute mark to split the defense and get a good scoring chance, misses the net. Noticeable player for the Danes. Zachary DeVine Norway vs. Switzerland (WJC 2016) Stream 12/27/2015
Mathias From Note Matias From with a goal! Nikolaj Krag Christensen drives the middle of the ice and a sweet dish over to From who buries it. Danes driving play in the third period. Short bench of the Swiss is catching up with them and it shows. Zachary DeVine Norway vs. Switzerland (WJC 2016) Stream 12/27/2015
Gabriel Carlsson Summary Highly impressed with the two-way game of Carlsson. Was sent out every other shift for team Sweden. Defensively a rock, offensively conservative. He has good first-pass ability, but not much power play upside. The strength on his shots were very average, but accurate. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Gabriel Carlsson Note Gabriel Carlsson is easily the best SWE defender. He’s out ever other shift, saves a goal that bounced over Sandstrom’s pad. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team White vs Team Sweden Live 7/30/2016
Gabriel Carlsson Note Carlsson needs to add some muscle. Sees what he needs to do but doesn’t have the strength at times to do it Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team White vs Team Sweden Live 7/30/2016
Gabriel Carlsson Note Perfect position on the PK Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team Blue vs Team Sweden Live 7/31/2016
Gabriel Carlsson Note Big crossovers gets him east/west quickly. Fluid backwards movements. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team Blue vs Team Sweden Live 7/31/2016
Gabriel Carlsson Note Carlsson so responsible with the puck and in his own zone. Might not be a offensive dynamo, but very high floor. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016
Gabriel Carlsson Note Carlsson with a great position stop with Tolvanen bearing down in the final minute of overtime. Positionally he’s solid. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016
Gabriel Carlsson Note Stretch pass from Carlsson to Looke and it’s almost a goal. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016
Gabriel Carlsson Note Carlsson nearly always able to get out of the defensive zone. Best defenseman in NJEC easily. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016
Jonah Gadjovich Note Strong net-front presence, a battler with good compete. Hands look suspicious Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Jonah Gadjovich Note Poor acceleration, his left to right is sluggish at best. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Jonah Gadjovich Note Just buried a guy at the blue line. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Jonah Gadjovich Summary Strong on his skates and physical without being overly aggressive. Plays the front of the net and makes the game difficult for those trying to defend the crease. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Dylan Gambrell Note Gambrell edge work is pretty good. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/10/2016
Dylan Gambrell Note Gambrell even in drills taking too much time Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/7/2016
Dylan Gambrell Note Gambrell has been largely invisible. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/8/2016
Dylan Gambrell Note Gambrell took his game to another level today as he was a big participant in drills and line rushes. Showed a good touch on his passes and a good on-ice vision as well, finding tight lanes and using skill to get the puck where it needs to be. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/9/2016
Dylan Gambrell Note Gambrell’s one-time is OK, not overly powerful Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/10/2016
Hunter Garlent Note Nasty release on his wrist shot, and a ringing slapshot Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Hunter Garlent Note Second goal much like his first one: quick hands to get his stick on a loose rebound and put it in the back of the net. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Hunter Garlent Summary A goal-scorer, with the anticipation to get to the right spot on the ice and hands quick enough to cash in on his chances Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Leon Gawanke Note Carries the puck up ice with some skill, but fires the puck into the corner and Halifax gains possession. Hate that play on the powerplay, but could be the coach's preference. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Good movement on the powerplay, and when the puck comes, fires a wrister wide Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Joins the puck carrier on a two-man rush, takes up a spot low in the right corner, patiently takes a pass and finds his open man. Nice offensive zone sequence Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Ill-chosen pass trying to hit a forward in transition, an easy intercept for the Halifax player Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Good first couple of steps gets him quickly to loose pucks Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Good patience retrieving the puck with a forechecker all over him Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Nice play to lead a three-on-two, snap pass, then goes to the front of the net and his efforts result in a scramble goal Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Summary An offensive defenseman who didn't look lost in his own end. Skates well with the puck, shows good patience and stick skills. However, at times his decisions were not crisp, and he forced the play at times. A project with decent offensive, powerplay upside if he can refine his game. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Morgan Geekie Note Geekie camping in front of the Spokane net puts the second rebound in the net. PPG Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs Spokane (WHL) Stream 11/5/2016

Morgan Geekie Summary Despite the weak straightline skating, Geekie has the tools to be an NHL player. Smart, good puck skills, plays a refined kind of game in all three zones Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Morgan Geekie Summary Happy to see him two days in a row, because although the holes in his skating are still there, the back-to-back games give a real impression of his game vision and intelligence. Savvy player who anticipates the game at a high level. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Morgan Geekie Note Geekie sets up both the game-tying and game-winning goals. Both were slightly lucky, but he was getting it done. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs Spokane (WHL) Stream 11/5/2016
Morgan Geekie Note Geekie just seems to get plays done. A lot of them I don’t even think will work. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs Portland (WHL) Stream 11/6/2016
Morgan Geekie Note Geekie with another great set-up pass, this time from behind the net. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs Portland (WHL) Stream 11/6/2016
Morgan Geekie Note Skating looks awkward and lacks power. Slow feet and no push. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017
Morgan Geekie Note Watching his feet closely. His edgework is decent, but average agility and his straightforward skating needs a lot of work. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017
Morgan Geekie Note Up 6-2, gets an unsportsmanlike penalty for arguing an offsides call that cancelled out a breakaway. A 10-minute misconduct that shows his compete and his impulse control. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017
Morgan Geekie Note Mobile and active, uses his body well to shield the puck and uses his feet to shake defenders Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Morgan Geekie Note Smart and well-positioned in his own end, knows when to cover for a D in the corner, and when to release without leaving a hole in the D coverage. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Derek Gentile Note Whiffs on a puck in the offensive zone, tries to recover and gives the puck away. Not a good sequence of choices. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Derek Gentile Note Made a play I didn't like at all by turning up ice away from his teammate trying to exit the zone, leaving no opportunity for a clean exit pass, and led to a turnover. Would have been smarter to support the breakout instead of trying to get clear in the neutral zone Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Derek Gentile Summary Not an impressive showing from the small forward. He was unnoticeable for most of the game, and made some poor choices. Gentile has quickness, and looks like a player who could develop, but he's definitely a project at this young age. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Alexander Georgiev Note Georgiev is an amazingly agressive goalie, plays outside of his crease the majority of the time. Fantastic movement and is quick set and square to the shooter. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Tim Gettinger Note Active stick Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Gustav Forsling Note Forsling more of a shooter for an offensive defenseman. This type of player is often associated with a puck distributor, but Frosling shoots more, but gets it on net so it is not worrisome. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Slovakia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Gustav Forsling Note Frosling hasn’t been the player I thought as he was supposedly the skill set Oliver Kylington would have brought to the team. Has a superior, offensive defensemen skill set, but Kylington has a stronger possession game to get the puck actually up the ice. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Jon Gillies Note Gillies economy of movement in the crease is impressive. Not much opens up, keeps it together while tracking the puck, doesn’t overreact to plays. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016
Jon Gillies Note Gillies suburb stopping 28 of 30 shots. Gave up a bit of a weak backhander in the last seconds but had a number of big saves and excellent reads. Never out of position and uses the big pillows well down low. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs Stockton (AHL) Stream 11/30/2016

Samuel Girard Note Trying to make something happen, but he seems to be playing a little past his limits and it's making him sloppy Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Samuel Girard Note Girard misplay leads to Kunin going in alone on net. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Canada Live 8/5/2016
Samuel Girard Note As good as the Girard offense is, the defense is in need of attention. Defensive awareness of the situation and his partner is lacking. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Canada Live 8/5/2016
Samuel Girard Note Girard never leaves the offensive zone on the turnover and it pays off. Risky play. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Canada Live 8/5/2016
Samuel Girard Summary Girard showed off a lot of potential with his quickness, ability to make quick reads and deliver the puck, but he looked like a player that needs time to polish his impressive skills. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016

Samuel Girard Note Calm with the puck on his stick at either end of the ice Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Samuel Girard Note Got tripped up in the offensive zone, but got back up and raced hard to get back to his defensive zoen, then laid down a solid body checkof the puck carrier and knocked him off the puck Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Samuel Girard Summary Has an excellent stride and tremendous calmness with the puck on his stick. Girard can be a dangerous player, but sometiimes is still too risky with the puck. However, after a couple more years of development, he could become a highly sought-after middle pair NHL defender. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Samuel Girard Summary Girard’s offensive ability is well known and was visible on many of his shifts at NJEC. Skating backwards and defending however is another matter all together. He doesn’t have good size and coupled with a so-so defensive zone game, there is a lot of work to be done to prepare Girard for the pro game. The good news is this is completely fixable and some solid coaching and time is all that is needed. He’ll have to use some of that vision to help him in the corners but again, all correctable. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Samuel Girard Note Girard supremely confident with the puck on his stick. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Canada Practice Live 8/1/2016
Samuel Girard Note Girard with a heavy shot. Gets it off fast from the point. Very good powerplay quarterback Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Canada Live 8/5/2016
Cody Glass Note Glass out to take a draw. Playing as a true center. Impressive for a young player like that. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Cody Glass Note Not shy, but he doesn't initiate a lot of contact. He'll take a hit, but seems to prefer stick over shoulder. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Cody Glass Note On the penalty kill, wins a faceoff in his own zone, and when a teammate clears the puck, Glass chases down the opponent retrieving the puck, takes the puck away from him, waits and tries to find McKenzie coming into the zone but the puck is tipped away, A stellar play from Glass! Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Cody Glass Note Wins a majority of his faceoffs, often cleanly back to a teammate Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Cody Glass Note Another clean faceoff win Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Cody Glass Note Quick hands to convert passes into one-timers. He scored on one earlier and was just robbed on another one Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Cody Glass Note Speed with the puck backs defenders off as his enters the zone Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Cody Glass Note What a play in front. Takes a pass instead of trying for a tip attempt and deftly finds Hughes in the slot. Wow! Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Cody Glass Note Gets good acceleration when he is already in stride. A complete skater. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Cody Glass Note Just a good hockey player Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cody Glass Note Worst-case scenario for Glass is that he becomes a bottom-six faceoff specialist who plays a decade in the NHL. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cody Glass Summary Glass responsible in the defensive zone picks up a misplayed pass and gets it safely out of danger. Good support. Shows he knows where he needs to be. Physically was removed from the play a few times, but played smart overall. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Cody Glass Note Bad centering pass by Glass works out and he gets a secondary assists after a deflection on goal. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs Portland (WHL) Stream 11/6/2016
Cody Glass Note Glass with great patience to not shoot and move to the backhand for the shot on goal. Calm in close. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs Portland (WHL) Stream 11/6/2016
Cody Glass Note Glass not scared of high traffic areas, but looks for a soft area in close. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs Portland (WHL) Stream 11/6/2016
Cody Glass Note Smooth, easy stride generates a lot of straightline speed Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Cody Glass Note Glass scoops the puck off the corner boards and wheels out to the half boards, head up, one hand on the stick and the other directing traffic, then lays a great cross-ice pass to a teammate. What a heady play that was. Impressive Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017

Nikolay Goldobin Note Shifty stickwork in the offensive zone got a pass to his teammate in the slot, chance generated. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin with only three shifts in the third period. If your coach in the AHL doesn’t trust you when you are trailing in a one-goal game, not sure if that is a good sign. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin not put out on the PP, down by 1 goal, last 2 minutes of play. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Generated good speed without the puck through the neutral zone, but in the resulting offensive-zone shift, SJ never gained possession of the puck. Goldobin passed on an opportunity to make a hit, and actually turned the wrong way trying to anticipate a poke check instead. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin with the game winner. Finally out for a shift and ends it in Overtime with a good shot. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Summary Goldobin is an enigma. Less than a handful of shifts in the third period and on the bench when the game is on the line in the final minutes. Finally gets a shift in the overtime and buries it on a great shot. Goldobin has been playing better with Chris Tierney sent down, but a player of his talent and skills has to be able to create on his own as well, not sulk and play a half-assed game. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note No energy in puck pursuit, despite being down 5-2 in the third. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Summary Goldobin obviously possesses skills, and showed some sparks of creativity. However, in this game at least, he showed little interest in playing a complete game and was mostly invisible throughout all three periods. Granted, it was a lackluster game all around, but Goldobin's performance was disappointing. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Summary Easily the highest raw talent in the Sharks prospect pool, Goldy had a very forgettable game. The knock on him in his draft year continues: seems to coast at times and does in fact look bored for entire periods and even games at a time. Had opportunities to contribute physically and chose to turn away from contact each time and spent zero time in the slot trying to get a scoring chance. Easily the worst game in several viewings. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 11/8/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin with a mediocre shift to start. Hope he shows some fire tonight Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Quiet first period for Goldobin. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Summary Continues to show very little drive to use his skills to contribute in a meaningful way. Has the skills to impact the scoreboard, but simply won’t get into gear. Flashes of his vision, shot and creativity are shown then the lackadaisical side takes over for a period Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin should be taking this game over. Poor decisions, lazy passes, he just does not look like he is that interested in hockey. I have seen a dozen games of his and have never seen any drive from him. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin showing some life on the PP. Back-to-back passes that lead to scoring chances. Gets moving again on a shift to dish to the center. Would like to see more killer instinct from him, has a good shot and needs to use it. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin touch going early and often, few nice passes to get solid chances Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin’s positioning is much improved. Not curling away from the crease or offensive plays, staying open for the puck. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin sticks with the play and kicks down the puck to get a chance. Earlier this year he would have peeled off and nothing would have come of it. Instead its an offensive draw. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Summary The small, professional details are starting to appear in Goldobin’s game and that is a credit to Roy Sommer’s coaching. The offensive skill is not doubted, but now that the defense and all-around attention to detail is present, Goldobin has a good chance as a prospect. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin looking much more engaged in practice, good habits, leading a lot of drills Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/7/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin forechecks, incepts the pass and makes a great feed to O’Regan for a chance on net. Big shift. Zachary DeVine Stockton at San Jose (AHL) Live 12/8/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin’s lack of compete level will keep him from being any good. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Summary Goldobin will never be a player of consequence due to his near zero compete level. You can deal with lack of physicality, hitting isn’t everything, but he isn’t going into traffic, competing hard for lose pucks, in the crease for positioning, etc. He’s a player that if it comes easy he can do something with it, and his talent will flash, but it’s the little things that make you a professional and he is not exhibiting those at the AHL level. This is my last entry on this player until something is shown that needs to be noticed. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin walks out and scores beating Ortio against the grain with a quick release. Kulak caught going the wrong way off the rush. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin with an amazing sequence. Shoots, gets his own rebound, circles the net and roofs it over a well-positioned Hill from six feet. A high-skill play, the first I have seen live from him and it was worth the wait. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Summary Overall a decent effort for Goldobin. Continues to force passes to fellow forwards, often extremely low percentage plays. Always going for the home run pass. This often leads to turnovers and hard hits by defending skaters. Watching Goldobin, the talent is evident, but the finer points of the game escape him and he doesn’t seem interested in addressing them and modifying his game to be successful. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin and Tierney matched up. First shift Tierney nearly centers a pass to Goldobin in the slot. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin centers the puck to a Heat forward and the ensuing scramble gets the puck poked behind Stalock Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Barclay Goodrow Note Goodrow with his second goal of the game, driving the net. Has a lot of good habits and I think is a bottom-six NHLer for a few hundred games. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Barclay Goodrow Note Goodrow with the overtime winner to complete the hat trick. Should be playing with Sharks in place of Mike Brown. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Barclay Goodrow Note Goodrow with a pass/chest bump/water-bottle-knocker goal? Looking good this game, multi-tool player Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Barclay Goodrow Note Goodrow had a very complete game. Solid in all three zones, invoved physically, drive play. Three goals and +4 on the night Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Barclay Goodrow Summary Once again with a solid, honest, north/south game. Scored a hat trick with a dominating performance. Ready for the NHL in a bottom-six role with the potential to develop into a middle line role.  Work ethic continues to be a dominating trait but hands are decent and shows some creativity as well. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Barclay Goodrow Note Ryan with a shot pass off the active SJ boards and Barclay Goodrow gets it home. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Barclay Goodrow Note Young scores, broken play, everyone did their job, just one of those things. Kylington did a nice job tying up the forward, but Young comes in from the point. Goodrow started it with some mucking in front of the net, another point for Goodrow. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Barclay Goodrow Summary Barclay Goodrow with another strong viewing, leading the Barracuda offensively and physically. He has finishing ability but his AHL game must be modified for him to have success at the NHL level. However, his physical play does translate exceedingly well and Goodrow could be a useful third-line player in the NHL soon. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Markus Granlund Note Granlund with an easy goal after Agostino does all of the work. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Markus Granlund Note Deployed on the PK, not sure why outside of his wheels. Refuses even to tie up a stick. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Markus Granlund Note At 11:50 of the 3rd period, all five San Jose players tying up two Heat players, but Granlund totally uninterested. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Markus Granlund Note Skillful shootout shot. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Markus Granlund Summary Too soft on the backcheck and not enough sand in him. Very talented but no where near contact nor traffic. He is a very fast player, deceptively slow. Hard shot, favors the snap shot in most cases. Future MVP of the SHL. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Markus Granlund Note Nice wrister to convert a two-on-one with Agostino, beating Grosenick clean Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Markus Granlund Note Chasing the play a lot, which leaves him out of position at both ends of the ice Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Markus Granlund Summary Good size and can skate well, but having watched him a few times over the last couple of years, I was disappointed in his overall lack of improvement in decision-making and hockey smarts. Has the skill level to be an average NHL middle-six type of player, but just hasn't put it all together yet. Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Colin Grannary Note Grannary with a dirty goal on the third shot. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Colin Grannary Note Grannery has been all over the puck and making chances happen. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Colin Grannary Note Grannery again, causing trouble and creating chances. Hard worker. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Colin Grannary Note Grannery misses Fabbro crusiing in from the point, would have been a glorious chance. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Colin Grannary Note Colin Grannery is the West Player of the Game. Only goal for the side, in the mix constantly. High compete level and V8 motor. Excellent game for the young man. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Colin Grannary Summary Deserving of the Player of the Game Award, Grannary was a fine mix of skill, tenacity, speed, and desire. Noticed on the ice nearly every shift, created scoring chances offensively for himself and teammates. Needs some help defensively, but forechecking was smart and effective. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Alexis Gravel Note Gravel has the puck knuckle off his blocker and in. He’ll want that one back. Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016
Alexis Gravel Note Second weak goal by Gravel, doesn’t close the pads and the insane angle goal gets by him. Tied game. Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016
Alexis Gravel Note Gravel big, takes a lot of net and gets set quickly. 16 year old with solid technical base. Zachary DeVine Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Stream 11/27/2016
JD Greenway Note JD Greenway activates and a pass/deflection right to Bellows who buries it. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team White vs Team Sweden Live 7/30/2016
JD Greenway Note Awkward giveaway in own zone. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
JD Greenway Note Solid passer, makes good reads and is poised with the puck Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
JD Greenway Note His reach takes away so much space in the middle of the defensive zone, and he has the smarts to be in the right place Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
JD Greenway Note Big long strides generate decent speed, went hard to get back to stop a 2-on-1, but overskated his defensive responsibility and left Piazza open in front of the net for a goal. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
JD Greenway Note Great play one-on-one to deny a scoring chance and then poke the puck clear to a teammate. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
JD Greenway Note Gave the puck away behind his own net, a sloppy play up 6-3. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
JD Greenway Summary A bit raw, Greenway needs to continue to work on his game, but he has all the tools to be a good NHL defenseman. Big, long arms and legs, smart reads in all three zones, but can be a bit sloppy at times. Future middle-pair NHL blueliner, though. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Noah Gregor Note Gregor has a good top-end speed and acceleration. First few steps could generate more. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/8/2016
Noah Gregor Note Gregor has a hard shot, quick one timer he doesn’t need a lot of space to get off. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/10/2016

Troy Grosenick Note Has bad angles trying to move to his post and often over drives the play and puts himself past the post and out of the crease Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Troy Grosenick Note Grosenick looking more than a bit shaky early. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016
Troy Grosenick Summary Competitive nature in the net helps compensate for average positional play. Good rebound control, especially in heavy traffic. His movement is quick, but his technique, especially moving creast to post, needs to be cleaned up. At least two or three years away. Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Troy Grosenick Summary In a 6-7 win, Grosenick got the W but had a hard game. Overplayed the puck at times and didn't let the play/puck come to him. Got very little defensive help and was left out to dry on a number of plays. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Troy Grosenick Note Trapper working much better in the third. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015

Troy Grosenick Note Finished with a .942 saves percentage. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Troy Grosenick Summary Battled hard to get the point that the 'Cuda had no right in getting. He isn’t the prettiest goalie to watch, but compete level is very high and isn’t giving up on any plays despite so-so defensive help. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Troy Grosenick Note First goal against came on a two-on-one on which Grosenick was too deep in his net to make a save. The play broke down in front of him and a lucky bounce put the puck on Agostino's stick, but if Grosenick had been at the top of his crease we would have had a chance to make a positional save. Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Troy Grosenick Note Slow to get position on the Granlund goal. It looked like he only partially committed to dropping down and moving to the right post and Granlund beat him glove side Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Carl Grundstrom Summary Seemed to be a off week for Grundstrom. Other times I have seen him he has been a solid, hardworking, two-way player. Numerous times he did not keep his feet moving and it cost Sweden a chance or a play. He’s better than he showed here. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Carl Grundstrom Note Grundstrom shifting when skating in on goal during drills. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Sweden Practice Live 7/30/2016

Carl Grundstrom Note Grundstrom coasting out there, could have cut to the middle with both his other forwards working the puck and got a chance when they were able to center it. instead he was flatfooted in the corner after making a play.

Denis Guryanov Note Short strides, which he'll need to improve to go move up to the top levels of hockey Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Denis Guryanov Summary Physical, two-way player with quickness and hands, but a tendancy to step over the line at times. He looks like a good middle-six forward, but I haven't seen high-level offensive instincts yet. Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Filip Gustavsson Note Gustavsson can’t quite squeeze the pads and a goal trickles through. Should have had that one. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Filip Gustavsson Note Gustavsson plays well in position and has the reflexes and athletic ability to improvise. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016

Filip Gustavsson Note Gustavsson keeps the shoulders back and takes up a massive amount of net Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Nick Hague Note Huge 2017 defenseman, needs a lot of seasoning in his play Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nick Hague Summary Tall, offensively-minded defender with long legs and a long stride. He's not as agile as I'd like, and he gets turned around at times in the defensive zone and has difficulty sticking with quick forwards if he can't block their path. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Nick Hague Note Still not a fan of his skating or his decision making in the defensive end. Better, yes, but still a lot of room for improvement Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Nick Hague Note When he's involved in the play, Hague shows good instincts, but he looks as if he is overthinking the play when he has more time Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nick Hague Note Tends toward making a hit instead of a sound defensive play Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nick Hague Summary Huge, but plays really young. Good instinctual play at times, but under duress made poor choices. However, he has time to get more settled into playing CHL over the next season before his draft year begins. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nick Hague Note Uses his length well to poke check and disrupt an attack Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Nick Hague Note Loses his man in a dangerous spot and allows a chance in the homeplate area Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Nick Hague Note Doesn't seem to have his head wrapped around his game yet Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Nick Hague Summary Hague has improved measurably on the defensive end of the ice since I watched him earlier in the year. He seemed less inclined to chase players for big hits, but played a more contained defense. Still had mental lapses, but progress is there. Has a good nose for the offensive game. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Peterborough (OHL) Live 3/5/2016
Nick Hague Note Long, slow-footed strides, but his legs are so long he covers a lot of ice surface Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Libor Hajek Summary Hajek’s defensive game is excellent. Not much on the offensive side, but a good pairing for some of the offensively-minded rearguards. Hard for the defensively-minded defenseman to be recognized but Hajek knows what his game is and plays within it. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Carter Hart Summary Hart has good economy of movement. Plays a bit deep, but a calmness in net. Decent size at 6'1. Very few challenges tonight, but was there when he needed to be , making 14 saves for his sixth shutout of the season. Zachary DeVine Moose Jaw vs. Everett (WHL) Video 11/27/2015
Carter Hart Note Hart stays so big when he goes down, shoulders back, head up. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada Practice Live 8/3/2016
Carter Hart Note Hart's biggest asset is his ability to read a play. Watching Sawchenko on the other side, who struggles with reads, really makes this stand out in drills. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada Practice Live 8/3/2016
Carter Hart Note Hart is looking shaky. Not going well for him. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Sweden vs Team Canada Live 8/4/2016
Carter Hart Note Stickhandled around attacking Warrior player, confident play. Zachary DeVine Moose Jaw vs. Everett (WHL) Video 11/27/2015
Carter Hart Summary Hart keeping Everett in the game. Under siege but battling to see the puck and getting in front of the puck. Waiting for his team to wake up. Not the most technical display. Hart helpful in back of the net with the puck, often getting the puck to his defense in a better position. Confident with the puck and under forechecker pressure. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs. Everett (WHL) Video 12/2/2015
Carter Hart Note Hart squeezes the pads on a tricky deflection. Tracking the puck well. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Carter Hart Note Hart doesn’t panic when the puck goes right to an opponent in the crease. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Carter Hart Summary Hart with good economy of movement. He drops to the butterfly a little too early, but seals the posts well. Lateral movement is sound and doesn’t take himself out of position. Solid glove hand and excellent reflexes. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Carter Hart Summary Hart tracking the puck very well. Tips, deflections, broken plays and sticks: he is seeing it all. Not getting a ton of support defensively, but kept the Silvertips in the game. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Carter Hart Summary Always amazing to watch, Hart's anticipation sets him apart. He isn’t as athletic as some of his peers, but he does not have to be. He sees and thinks the game at a level far higher than normal at this level. Three years of development and he could easily be seen as a goaltender in the NHL. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Carter Hart Note Hart’s foot work is fluid and easy. Not super powerful, but like the rest of his game technically sound. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada Practice Live 8/3/2016
Dillon Heatherington Summary The 50th overall pick of 2013 draft, Heatherington isn’t going to light up the scoreboard and he hasn’t at any level of play. But at 6’2 and 220 pounds, he is a sizable stay-at-home defenseman. Defensively astute at only 20 years of age, he logs big minutes for Lake Erie including on the penalty kill. Clears the crease and boxes out forwards with authority. Solid skating and an active stick rounds out an impressive defensive package. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Tim Heed Note Heed with a good read to step into the forwards path to eliminate him from the play. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016
Tim Heed Note Heed showing intelligence as he lets the puck by him then acts as a screen for the attacking forward. Pucks neatly exits zone. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016
Miro Heiskanen Note Heiskanen with a good stick check Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016

Miro Heiskanen Note Heiskanen playing his best game of the camp, making good reads and executing. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016
Miro Heiskanen Note Hieskanen shaken off behind the net and HIFK gets the goal. Was on his man but lost position on the quick reverse. Zachary DeVine HIFK vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/30/2016
Miro Heiskanen Note Bit bowlegged skating stride. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Miro Heiskanen Note Tremendous lateral quickness and game awareness. Stick sweep to knock the puck away from an attacker, then two quick steps to his right to take away a lane to the net. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Miro Heiskanen Note Another display of quality positioning. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017

Miro Heiskanen Note Heiskanen is a player that looks comfortable when three opponents are surrounding him. Love his game. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Miro Heiskanen Note Nice, low slapper from the blue line on the powerplay Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Adam Helewka Note Helewka drives the net on every drill. Not happy unless the puck gets in the net. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/7/2016
Adam Helewka Note Helewka projects as a complementary scorer, not great with the puck on his stick, but his shot, determination and north/south game is great to see. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/9/2016
Adam Helewka Note Helewka putting a lot of passes in skates. Good on-ice vision sees it, needs more passing to go with his good shot. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Scrimmage Live 8/11/2016
Adam Helewka Note Helewka too far forward with his shoulders in skating drills Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/7/2016
Adam Helewka Note Helewka’s changing directions needs work. Skating drills show some issues with balance. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/9/2016
Joe Hicketts Summary Hicketts with a handful of solid hits tonight. Keeping himself in position, as well. It was the Royals third road game in three nights and he looked to be a bit winded towards the end of the game. Victoria leaned hard on him, and he doesn’t takes shift off. Took himself out of position a few times trying to make hits, but I like that he is looking to make physical contact. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Joe Hicketts Note Joe Hicketts with a few hits to establish the game, interesting he wasn’t suspended after the Aho Incident. High-end motor and physical play despite small stature. Plays 6 inches and 30 pounds heavier. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Joe Hicketts Summary Hicketts has a compete level that is hard to match. His best play was two poke checks from his stomach, gets the puck and rifles a shot over the net. Does not give an inch anywhere on the ice. Took himself out of position trying to make big hits, but it’s something he needs to keep in his game at his height. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Joe Hicketts Note Hicketts boxes out Alex True. Loses a lot in size and weight but got the job done. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Joe Hicketts Note Hicketts with a big hit on Leth Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Joe Hicketts Summary Joe Hicketts was a man on a physical mission. Took himself out of position a few times making (or trying to make) a hit. His compete level is without question every game, but needs to play within himself as well. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Joe Hicketts Note Timo Meier buried by Joe Hicketts. Hicketts is 30 pounds lighter and 5” shorter, and lights up the much larger player. Hicketts loves the rough stuff. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/29/2015
Brandon Hickey Note Brandon Hickey blows a tire on a pivot and allows Kalapudas to come in 2-on-0 and bury it. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Roope Hintz Note Roope Hintz keeps making strides. On the top PP unit, PK unit and drew himself a penalty shot on a strong burst to the net. Zachary DeVine HIFK vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/30/2016
Roope Hintz Note Roope with another big chance, carrying the puck in on a two-on-one and his driving center was able to draw a penalty. Roope got a sharp angle shot off. Zachary DeVine HIFK vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/30/2016
Roope Hintz Note Hintz positively influencing play in the offensive zone. Lots of O-zone time for his line. Zachary DeVine HIFK vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/30/2016
Yushiroh Hirano Note Yushiroh Hirano working hard on every shift. Not sure the talent is there but the work ethic is. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Scrimmage Live 8/11/2016
Nico Hischier Note Great change of direction that left a defender scrambling to recover Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Note There have been at least three times this game where Hischier has a made a play while down on the ice. Never gives up in the offensive zone. Will he develop that same tenacity on D? If so, he'll become a highly dangerous and effective player. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Summary The best player on the ice, without question. Hischier needs to spend some more effort on the backcheck and in the defensive zone, but his play in his own end is not a liability and will improve. His offensive skills and speed are excellent, and his vision is excellent or better. He shows great awareness and patience on the ice, and was untouchable when he had the puck on his stick. He should be a top choice for the 2017 draft Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Note Hischier’s stickhandling on another level in this game. Edges are very good too, stops quickly, let’s the defender go by to get space to make a play. Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016

Nico Hischier Note Hischier with good puck protection skills comes to the top of the circles and rifles it in. Not much work in the greasy areas of the ice for the Swiss pivot in this game. Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Note Hischier with a quick goal on the Fortier centering pass. Perfectly positioned to one time the puck and pick the corner. Great shot and on-ice awareness. Zachary DeVine Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Stream 11/27/2016
Nico Hischier Note Hischier carries the puck up ice well and handles it at speed, not lugging it up the ice. Always ready and able to make a play. Zachary DeVine Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Stream 11/27/2016
Nico Hischier Note Rang the crossbar, then gathered the puck and sent a nice pass to Fortier for a one-timer Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016

Nico Hischier Note Hischier with a great defensive play on Klima. Klima trys to throw in the brakes but Nico reads it and completely thwarts the play. Zachary DeVine Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Stream 11/27/2016
Nico Hischier Note Stickhandles through traffic like he's playing against U14s Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Leads a rush two-on-two with Fortier, but when Fortier gets interfered with (knocked to the ice by a good but totally illegal hit), Hischier hard stops, turns back and allows the play to reset. Very smart play. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Took a slash on the hands and did not like it, waited half a shift then picked his spot and threw a hard, clean hit on the neutral-zone boards. Hischier is playing with some snarl. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note A beauty of a pass into the slot on the powerplay, but Coughler didn't find the puck (all he needed was to have had his stick on the ice and the puck would have found him). Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Doubled up on almost every time he touches the puck in the offensive zone, yet he still makes plays with ease Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Fantastic array of shots in his arsenal Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017

Nico Hischier Note I'll just say it--Hischier looks NHL ready Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017

Nico Hischier Note Second time in the game that a brilliant Hischier pass goes squandered because Coughler wasn't prepared to do something with it. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Summary Hard to determine what aspect of his game is most dominant, his ultimate confidence in his abilities, or the abilities themselves. Hischier bends the game to his will, and I don't recall an ineffective shift in this game. His shot selection, timing, passing, vision, skating, willingness to engage in physical play, leadership on and off the ice, work effort. It's all there in every shift he plays. A strong argument can be made that he is the best player in this draft class. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Nice backhand pass to hit a striding Fortier for a long-distance one-timer that caused problems Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016

Nico Hischier Note Terrific body positioning in the circle, and tricky, tricky backhand shot that came from nowhere, but on replay was well-thought out in advance. Really smart play. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Note Sees an opening on the short side and slaps one direct on target for a clean goal Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Connor Hobbs Note Hobbs slides across for a big hit on C Jones. Good line up. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Canada Live 8/5/2016
Axel Holmstrom Note Skating is much improved. Hands and vision have always been there. Might be felony theft by Detroit picking him in the 7th round. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Sweden (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Axel Holmstrom Note Holmstrom’s vision continues to impress. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Sweden (WJC 2016) Stream 12/28/2015
Axel Holmstrom Note Holmstrom’s game has been very strong. Skating now average, last 90 seconds takes on two defenders and determined stick handling and tenacity result in a chance. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Slovakia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Julius Honka Summary Another quality performance from Honka, who continues to prove that he can be an NHL defenseman by supplementing his smaller build with intelligent positional play, top-flight skating and smooth on-ice awareness. Honka does not panic in his own end, even when he makes a mistake or, more often, needs to cover for someone else's missed assignment. He is a natural defender, always getting his stick or his body in position to disrupt an attacker's best options, and moves with efficiency and determination. Honka takes hits to make plays when he needs to do so, but more often his already moved the puck into a safer, more opportunistic play. He can skate with the puck and has the stickhandling to deke around forecheckers, and makes smart passes consistently. Brian Fogarty Rockford vs Texas (AHL) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2015
Josh Ho-Sang Note Such quick and agile hands and stickwork Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015

Josh Ho-Sang Note Slamming the bench gate Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Josh Ho-Sang Summary Ho-Sang dazzles with puckhandling and skating, and is a hard worker on the ice. However, for every moment of brilliance there is another moment of frustration as he curls away and offensive chances dissolve. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Josh Ho-Sang Note Ho-Sang dangles at the blue line and hits a streaking Harper down the right side but the goal is waved off for incedental goalie interference. Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Josh Ho-Sang Note Ho-Sang’s overall skating ability is excellent. Edge work, balance, speed and agility are all there. Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Josh Ho-Sang Note Ho-Sang sends the puck across to Harper, whose shot is stopped but bounces in off an Ice Dog player. Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Josh Ho-Sang Note Joshua Ho-Sang is a talented offensive player that works very hard on each shift who really wants the puck on his stick. His dangles and stick-handling are elite level and has very good on-ice vision to go with it. However, he is morally opposed to shooting, even when it is the only play available to him. Numerous times in this game he had a good opportunity at net that ended with a pass to a teammate. Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Josh Ho-Sang Note Shows his creativity with puckhandling in traffic and a self-pass off the back of the net Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Josh Ho-Sang Note He has added some weight, looks bigger/thicker, especially in his legs. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Josh Ho-Sang Note Pivots well with the puck on his stick. Tremndously nimble and in control of the puck. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Josh Ho-Sang Note Still a playmaker. Always has his head up, looking for options all the time, but he rarely seems to find that the option of shooting the puck is an appealling choice. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Josh Ho-Sang Note Almost instant reversal of direction with the puck on his stick. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Josh Ho-Sang Summary If Ho-Sang would just shoot the puck, he would be among the world's top prospects. Instead, he uses his speed and ridiculous dexterity on his feet and in his hands to move the puck through the neutral and offensive zones and create chances for his teammates. However, unless he can scare defenders with his shot, NHL players will let him play around with the puck all game long. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Josh Ho-Sang Note Any hint of a turnover and he's calling for the puck hunting for a breakaway Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016

Brett Howden Summary Howden has a good motor but too many timeS the puckhandling skills have not allowed him to do much with the puck. He will be an NHL player some day, but the offensive upside that many hope for from him was not on display at NJEC. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016

Isaac Johnson Note Acceleration comes in the form of tiny, choppy, almost tip-toe steps. Lots of foot movement but going nowhere Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
Isaac Johnson Summary Scored a goal, but also took some unneccesary penalties. I liked his effort, but he needs to bring it down a bit into the proper moments of the game. Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
Keegan Iverson Note Iverson has a quick release. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Keegan Iverson Note Iverson with a huge hit. Good, solid and clean. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Keegan Iverson Sumary Iverson was a physical presence that factored into the game in a variety of ways. Royals were very aware when he was on the ice, but not much offensive upside was displayed. Work ethic did not wane at all during the game. Very good skating ability as well. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Jake Bean Note Jake Bean’s quickness on his skates is impressive. Very fast, shows good creativity. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Canada Practice Live 8/1/2016

Jake Bean Note Breaks his stick attempting a slap shot, then as the puck floats to an opposing forward, hurries back, gets position, bodies up on the puck carrier and takes him out of the play. Patient and smart, that. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017

Mark Jankowski Note Jankowski lifts the Reign defender's stick, gets the puck on net. Goal ultimately waived off, but... Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Mark Jankowski Summary The first professional game of the widely panned first-round pick. Jankowski played a steady game and knew his positional responsibilities well even in his first game with the Heat. He did not look out of place but was surprised a few times how quickly he ran out of time and space. I don’t think he has high-end talent, but certainly has NHL potential, likely in a middle-six roll. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016

Jeremy Lauzon Note Lauzon again with a good stick. Coming on the radar in a rough game for Canada Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Sweden vs Team Canada Live 8/4/2016
Jeremy Lauzon Note Pulls a puck out of a scrum and deftly flicks it up ice and out of the defensive zone. Smart, handsy play. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Jeremy Lauzon Note Not sure what he was doing there, but he just slapped a pass through the neutral zone for an icing.Confusing choise, since he was not under pressure and the probability of a forward receiving that pass with an alacrity is minimal, at best Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Jesper Lindgren Note Not impressed with Jesper Lindgren’s compete level or decision making Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team White vs Team Sweden Live 7/30/2016
Jesper Lindgren Note Lindgren underwhelming throughout camp. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016
Nikita Jevpalovs Note First period he was one of the better Baracuda forwards. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Nikita Jevpalovs Note With two minutes remaining in the OT period, Jevpalovs had a shot on the right wing with the centerman driving for a possible rebound, but mis-timed a pass instead. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Nikita Jevpalovs Note Nice effort on the backcheck to break up an odd-man rush Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015

Nikita Jevpalovs Note Jevpalovs was not active in this game. Less and less icetime as the game moved on, wasn't on his game tonight. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Nikita Jevpalovs Summary Jevpalovs with another solid game, a player that you have to really watch to appreciate. Often the first to get back, plays a quick transition game but slow shot gets deflected or blocked. Still like his well-rounded game, no shifts taken off. Offensively coming along but taking the defensive responsibilities seriously. Elite physicality tonight, more so then usual for him, which is already a solid part of his game. Needs to work on and develop his shot as well as shoot more and use his physical, driving play to get to the front of the net. At the end of the game, after seeing his slick, patient SO goal, makes one wonder what  he could have done earlier in the game with a few more shots. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Nikita Jevpalovs Summary Works hard in all three zones and shows above average speed. His play looks suited more for a bottom-six role player spot than a second-line scorer, but he has legitimate NHL ability. Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Nikita Jevpalovs Note Jevpalovs started the year making steady progress, has stalled out on the curve. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016
Nikita Jevpalovs Note Jevpalovs skating isn’t much improved. Lack of a top gear now evident. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/9/2016
Nikita Jevpalovs Note Jevpalovs not creating much but is engaged in the game with some good banging and crashing. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Nikita Jevpalovs Summary Nikita Jevpalovs shows good ice awareness. Often looking around the ice to make sure he is in defensive position, marking opposing forwards. In a game he was not helping the offense, Jevpalovs made sure he was not a liability for the Barracuda. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Nikita Jevpalovs Note Jevpalovs good work in the drives the net, havoc and whacking as 40 curls and gets the puck to the net. Haley knocks it in. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikita Jevpalovs Summary Jevplovs needs to read the offensive play a bit better and get into the soft parts of the slot. He works hard, but the lack of offensive contributions is a concern. Might be looking at a third-line ceiling for him if he can’t bring a more consistent offensive presence. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikita Jevpalovs Note Jevpalovs missed chance on the 2-on-1 at 15 minutes. Needs to get the puck across or shoot. Inexcusable to lose it like that on a clumsy touch. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Nikita Jevpalovs Summary A very invisible game for Jevpalovs. Had one golden chance and muffed it. Offense isn’t translating of late, a sign to watch. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016

Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson Note Lots of strengthon his skates, using edges and a deep lean to generate power through his turns Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017
Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson Note Needs to be more careful with his passing. Two or three times he has just tossed the puck to an opposing player. Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017
Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson Summary Although he needs to tighten up his play at times, his skating and strength on his feet are solid. Goes to the net, chases down opponents on the forecheck, makes good decisions in his own end. Needs to protect the puck better. Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017
Joey Anderson Note Joey Anderson with a good chip on the boards to spring Kunin for an early chance Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team Blue vs Team Sweden Live 7/31/2016

Stephen Johns Note Bombing the puck from the point, either on the powerplay or at even strength. Forced another difficult save that generated a scoring chance at the crease because the goaltender could not handled the shot. Brian Fogarty Rockford vs Texas (AHL) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2015
Stephen Johns Note Game-winning goal in overtime. Brian Fogarty Rockford vs Texas (AHL) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2015
Stephen Johns Summary This was the first I have seen of Johns since his days in the NCAA, and his improvement was noticeable. Always a steady defender with a big shot, Johns' confidence moving forward and joining the offense seems to have taken a leap up from his days at Notre Dame, and his shot has gotten even bigger. He launches the puck from the point with devastating intent, and I don't recall a single shot of his that was handled cleanly during the game. A good skater for his size, with clean pivots and lateral movement. Although his overall skill level is not top-pairing NHL caliber, Johns could be a solid middle-pair blueliner with a role on a second-unit powerplay. Brian Fogarty Rockford vs Texas (AHL) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2015
Henri Jokiharju Summary One of the three 2017 defenders Finland brought to NJEC, but the best. Slated to play for Portland Winterhawks next season. Jokiharju is small but had a number of very good reads and was responsible on both ends of the ice. Skating is above average as well. His shot is weak and he’ll need to add a lot of lean mass. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Henri Jokiharju Note Jokiharju’s stick isn’t always in the best position. Could use it more to get into a lane his body isn’t in. Minor adjustment Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Finland vs Team Sweden Live 8/5/2016

Jordan Greenway Summary 6’6 and 220+ pounds is hard to move in the NHL, and at the Junior level it is nearly impossible. Greenway is a power forward in the classic variety. A good enough skater, rather go through you, and the goals come from in close. Was a force in front of the net and created space with his physical brand of hockey. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Jordan Greenway Note Jordan Greenway is a monster against the young Finn side. Kills penalties well, works very hard. Not much on-ice vision, but plays within his game. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team Blue vs. Team Finland Live 7/30/2016
Jordan Greenway Note Jordan Greenway is a bull. Imposes his will. Crease camper Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team Blue vs Team Sweden Live 7/31/2016

Joshua Norris Note Had a puck rebound to him alone near the slot, but instead of taking a shot immediately with his backhand, he tried to curl his body around the puck to get a forehand shot instead. Lost time, snap and the opportunity. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Joshua Norris Note Finds another loose puck in the offensive zone, this time already on his forehand, and fires a shot, saved. Has a knack for positioning in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017

Tyson Jost Note Jost sees things no one else is able to, surprises his own teammates at times. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016

Tyson Jost Note Jost hits the post, then gets on his horse to deflect a centering pass in the defensive zone. Team is feeding Jost hoping he can make it happen. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Tyson Jost Summary Electric player with the puck on his stick. Release is like lightning and shoots from all angles with high velocity. Showed good grit, often cutting to high-percentage areas before unleashing his shot. Skating is very good as well, with quickness that matches his hands. Held off the scoreboard, but had a pair of posts. Tried to get others involved, but didn’t seem to mesh with his line mates. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Tyson Jost Summary Jost is the player that Mitch Marner wants to be. He isn’t as fast as Marner, but Jost is thick, quick with the puck, a laser, accurate shot and a release that fools goalies. Jost plays the right way and a very honest brand of hockey but with a very very high level of skill. His skating is near elite and defensively he is part of the game as well. Teams could do much worse in a center and he’ll be in the NHL after a quick layover at North Dakota this fall. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Tyson Jost Note Jost's speed and acceleration are keys to his game and few others can match. It’s also catching defenders off guard. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Sweden vs Team Canada Live 8/4/2016

Olli Juolevi Note Juolevi: just better than any other defenseman on the ice. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Olli Juolevi Note Juolevi defending against McHugh. Leaves no gap, pokes the puck, goes in the air, bats at it, then as it falls to his feet he kicks it to his stick and puts the puck back to the neutral zone. That was a pro-style stop. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Olli Juolevi Summary Juolevi, the defensive Finnish hero and latest in a long line of defenseman from the Finland Factory of Excellence. Somewhere in a jumble of the top three rearguards, Juolevi is the most polished of the three overall and it was all left out on display in this game. He dominated the game defensively, easily playing 25+ minutes and never slowing down. His goal on the power play showed great offensive vision and his defensive contribution to the game cannot be understated. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016

Olli Juolevi Note Juolevi gets the minor details defensively. Amazingly tight gaps and smart, active stick. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016

Olli Juolevi Summary Playing for the powerhouse London Knights and scoring nine points as the top defenseman for the gold medal winning Finns, there isn’t much left to wonder about the merits of Juolevi’s game.

Olli Juolevi Note Juolevi loses the puck as it's flipped into the zone and it leads to the Kitchener goal with under two minutes to play. His only real gaff, but it was more of a freak play. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016

Noah Juulsen Note Juulsen is a very good skater. Changes directions suddenly. Shifty player. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Noah Juulsen Summary In a game that got away from the Tips, Juulsen's engine, complete level and work ethic were on display. More engaged physically in this game than others in the past, which I really liked and thought added a lot to his game. Took a good roughing penalty and threw some solid clean hits with his team down by four goals. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs. Everett (WHL) Video 12/2/2015

Noah Juulsen Summary Would like to see Juulsen activate a bit more in this game. Playing more conservative than previous viewings. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Noah Juulsen Summary Juulsen was more quiet than I was expecting. Played a very defensively sound yet conservative game and was a calming influence on the game. Some of his defensive coverage was spotty at times, especially on the penalty kill, but still has the skill and smarts to succeed at the next level. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Noah Juulsen Note Juulsen activates and a heavy shot goes over the net. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Noah Juulsen Note Juulsen is out every other shift. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Noah Juulsen Note Juulsen just smart. Subtle plays, defensively calm. So much better in person. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Noah Juulsen Summary One knock on Juulsen is he has been passing the puck a bit much, could have carried into the zone a few times specifically tonight. Skating is excellent and on-ice awareness is as well. Pressure by forecheckers never phased him, impressive overall game even in the loss. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Noah Juulsen Note Juulsen carries the puck and maintains possession. Not just outlet passes, but actively driving possession and aiding the rush. Also has a bomb from the point. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Noah Juulsen Note Juulsen’s transitions from forward to back are smooth. Easily gets around from defend to attack. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Noah Juulsen Summary Even in the losing effort, Juulsen had a very good game. He carried the puck better tonight and maintains possession. His skills with the puck are not just outlet passes, but actively driving possession and aiding the rush. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Kailer Yamamoto Summary Only 5’8 the younger of the Yamamoto brothers went from a tentative partner of Casey Mittlestadt to a full contributor on a line with Clayton Keller and Kieffer Bellows. After two full years in the WHL you have to believe that the “Dub” was the best place to see if a smaller player like Kailer can survive. His point totals have been there, his leadership is noted and he has that elusive slipperiness you want in smaller players to go with a good amount of dynamic unpredictability. Spokane is retooling this year, so it will be interesting to see how Kailer’s season progresses. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Kailer Yamamoto Note Yamamoto continues to make hits all over the ice. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016

Kailer Yamamoto Summary Has all the tools but the size. If he has the puck and a step or two, he can make bad things happen for the other team, but as he moves along in his career, and the opponents get bigger, faster, smarter and more experienced, he could find a wall too high to climb before he hits the NHL.

Clayton Keller Note Keller winning a lot of draws. All stick skills are top notch Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Clayton Keller Summary Keller was the straw the stirred the NTDP drink all night long. Keller is able to see the ice and impact his teammates with his vision and hockey sense. Skating is quick and shifty, allowing him to change angles and distribute the puck. Quick release on his shot as well. Size will be a question mark at 5’10 and 168 pounds, but has the vision and shiftiness where he could compete with more muscle and same size. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016

Adrian Kempe Note Kempe already looking much better than Sunday’s game. Contesting pucks early, work ethic back. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Adrian Kempe Summary Kempe has concerns around consistency and seeing him live multiple times in the past month has confirmed that. When he is moving his feet and staying in his lane, he impacts a game. When he coasts around, he is not. He coasted a ton and seemed to move only east/west, resulting in a marginal viewing. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Adrian Kempe Summary Adrian Kempe was invisible yet again. He is a young player in the AHL but one of his reputation shouldn’t have one good viewing in five. Ontario is a very good team and he just isn’t able to do much of note. Consistency is an issue. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/6/2016

Adrian Kempe Summary High skill and excellent skater with a shot that is excellent and well placed. Played better defensively than many young AHLers. In two games in three days he did show some consistency issues but one must remember this is a 19 year old in the AHL playing against men and seasoned professional hockey players. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016

Kenney Morrison Note Kenney Morrison has a well-rounded skill set, but I’d like to see quicker decisions. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016

Kevin Davis Note Davis looking solid early. Tight gaps and controlling the play along the boards. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Kevin Davis Note Davis twice has taken the puck from the deep defensive zone up the ice with poise and confidence. Did not see that earlier in the series. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Kevin Klima Note Klima with a high-end burst of speed picking the puck up at his own blueline. He fakes cutting to the inside of the ice and then goes wide, completely fooling the defenceman. He is able to freeze Gatineau's goalie on his left post before faking as if he's going to cut behind the net. However, he makes a pass at a seemingly impossible angle across the crease on his backhand before circling behind the net. The pass is one-timed to Wiederer, who shows good patience himself in putting the puck past the sprawled Gatineau tender. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Kevin Klima Note Off a Gatineau faceoff win, Klima bursts past his man to collect the puck before it reaches the Gatineau D. Creates a partial break, but loses his footing. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Jujhar Khaira Note Nice defensive zone check that disrupted the puck carrier. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Note Hips are slow on his pivot to reverse skating, and he actually hopped a bit to get his foot around. An opponent with better acceleration would have blasted past him. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Note Nice read, quick pass through the crease to Yakimov who couldn't get his stick on the puck for a tap in. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015

Jujhar Khaira Note Continues to impress with steady, two-way play. Physical in front of the net, strong with both hands, good balance. The anti-Yakimov. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Note Scores his second goal with only a couple of minutes left in the game. The best part of the play was his collecting a bad pass with his skate, turning and shooting short-side from a sharp angle. No defensive pressure on him, though, and bad positioning by Grosenick to allow the goal. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Summary Of the five players under focus, Khaira clearly had the best game. Despite his two goals, his offensive skills are limited to grinder production. However, he competed hard all over the ice, showed smart, physical play and despite not being a blazing, agile skater was more than capable with his skating. Based on this viewing I'd say that Khaira has a chance at becoming a decent bottom-six forward for the NHL. His spot on the prospect list is indicative of his fantasy potential, but I can see him playing in the NHL next season. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Summary Seemed to never leave the ice. Great motor and complete level in all three zones. Good-skating big man with decent hands and reasonably smart play. Aggressive on the forecheck, mixed it up in front of San Jose net on a number of occasions and deployed in all situations. Often deployed with Yakimov and Slepyshev to form a tall and heavy line that the undersized San Jose defenders had no ability to compete with physically. Could easily be called up and be part of the bottom 6 forwards for the Oilers and contribute.  Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Note Khaira with a dish at speed to his winger for a good chance. Owned the center of the ice and drew in the defenders. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016
Kaapo Kahkonen Note Kahkonen now in net and on his first save shows how much better his lateral movement is than Vehvilanien. Gets post to post with ease. Deflected shot is fought off, two good saves to start. HUGE reach back save. Kahkonen looking much better in this game. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Kevin Hancock Note Real nose for the net, has a deceptive, accurate shot Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Kevin Hancock Summary Offensive skills are there, skating is a bit suspect, but there's no question that he likes to get the puck toward the net. His shot is a positive as is his offensive instincts. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Yan Khomenko Note Yan Khomenko walks in, nice hands to get a chance on hill. Comes back on backcheck and lifts a stick. Nice shift Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Yan Khomenko Note Khomenko generates a good deal of power in his strides. Covers ice. Technical skating needs some help. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Yan Khomenko Note Good job protecting the puck the majority of the time, but then over-handles. Doesn’t use teammates as effectively as he could, which would aid team possession. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Yan Khomenko Note Khomenko choppy skating, generates good power but looks out of control all the time. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016

Morgan Klimchuk Note Klimchuk knocks home a rebound to make it 1-0, just waiting in the dirty areas, exactly what he needs to go. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Morgan Klimchuk Summary Klimchuk needs to be a bit more greedy with the puck, seems to defer the shot when a line mate is beavering his stick to the ice. Needs to read the ice and make the best play and not just quiet a teammate. Allow the skills to shine! Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Morgan Klimchuk Note Klimchuk doesn’t look like the same player that struggled at times in the AHL last year. Much more jump, confidence. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs Stockton (AHL) Stream 11/30/2016

Morgan Klimchuk Note Klimchuk with a nifty play carrying the puck up the left wing, tow drag, cuts to net and draws a penalty. Has been a force all game. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Morgan Klimchuk Note Klimchuk’s hustle and wheels have broken up a number of chances while generating chances on the other end of the ice. First viewing and he gets a gold star. A player to watch. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Morgan Klimchuk Note Klimchuk’s wrap around chance goes through the crease and Carroll puts it home. Again, the wheels of Klimchuk creates. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Morgan Klimchuk Sumary With his first two points of his AHL career, Morgan Klimchuk was a force in this game. Wheels, vision, tenacity, defensive responsibility, he displayed it all. It was my first time viewing Klimchuk, but very excited to see him again and confirm the excellent skills and ability on display in this game. If there is consistency to this level of play, could be challenging for a NHL spot next year. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Nolan Kneen Note Kneen goes to line up a hipcheck and it’s completely off. Allows a 3-on-1 and ultimately a goal. Not a good read. Zachary DeVine Spokane vs Kamloops (WHL) Stream 11/23/2016

Graham Knott Note Good check on the boards to disrupt an attack. Uses his size to hold position and shield plays Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Graham Knott Summary Still a work in progress, the big forward shows strength and decent agility in multiple phases of the game. Uses his size well because he can move well laterally and use his edgework to gain superior positions on the ice. Could become a solid middle-six centerman that opponents do not like playing against.

Graham Knott Note When Knott adds twenty pounds he is going to be a beast Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Graham Knott Summary Knott is tall but still thin, yet he plays the game like he already has the extra pounds. Strong both on his skates and in the corners. Knott looks a bit raw, but has the form to round into a true NHL power forward. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Graham Knott Note Knott with the dish to Maletta who goes through the wicketts to tie the game at one. Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Keegan Kolesar Note Seattle scores on a bit of a scramble. Looks like it was Kolesar’s goal again, scrapping in front of the net. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Keegan Kolesar Summary Kolesar with the empty net goal for the hat trick. Gritty, good skating, good size and showed a good touch. Over a point per game this season, laid some hits. Skates well for a big and heavy man. Uses his size effectively to eliminate players along the boards. Had a few defensive lapses but otherwise sound in his own zone all night. Overall, a good player in all zones. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Keegan Kolesar Note Kolesar is a good straight ahead skater, plays a ready north/south game. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada Practice Live 8/3/2016

Travis Konecney Summary Konecney is the best forward on the ice for Canada. Making things happen, creatively a football-style pass that Crouse can bring down like a receiver. Good game from the PHL product. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Travis Konecney Note Konecney barely misses short side high on the feed from Jost Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016

Nikita Korostelev Note Completes a two-on-one with a sick right-left move and a backhand goal, bar down. He had hit the post earlier in the shift with a nasty wrist shot. Turns out that the earlier post was actually in the net, so Korostelev pulled off a rare, two-goal shift. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Really impressed with his vision and offensive instincts. Another great pass for a doorstep chance Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Summary Dominated the game in the offensive zone and was easily to most dangerous player on the ice. Based on this viewing, I'm surprised that he dropped to the seventh round, so I'm left wondering what his flaws were that the scouts saw last year. Korostelev is a player who needs more viewings Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Nice between the legs chance on net (PP) Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015

Nikita Korostelev Summary Was the best player on the ice tonight. Creative, inspired play mixed skill around the net with the grit to drive the goal, as well. Quick hands and a good release, a lot of offense was created though Korostelev tonight. Will have to watch a closer game to see how he deals with a tighter checking game, but a steal in the seventh round for the Leafs. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015

Austin Kosack Note Good poise in his own end. Holds puck below circles, dodges a defender, passes to an open man for a controlled breakout. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Klim Kostin Note Slices throught the Slovakian defense, gets tripped but no call Brian Fogarty SVK v RUS (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016

Klim Kostin Note Kostin on a few plays I’ve noted has done more fly-by skating using his stick than to physically contend for the puck. He’s a physical specimen at this level, would like to see more engagement. Zachary DeVine USA vs Russia (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/15/2016

Klim Kostin Summary Big, fast, plays with a physical edge when necessary, and has high-end puck control and possession skills. Kostin's wrist shot is accurate and hard from all distances and created a lot of trouble for the opposing net minder. A player to watch. Brian Fogarty SVK v RUS (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Klim Kostin Note Halfway through the first and Kostin is coasting on a lot of plays. Gave up the puck easily in the defensive zone on one play by just lobbing it up the boards to no one in particular and the Swiss defense easily gets the puck back. Zachary DeVine Russia vs Switzerland (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/13/2016
Pavel Kousal Note Kousal whips home a puck that hits him in the crease, quickly swipes it home for his 5th of the year on the power play. Zachary DeVine Spokane vs Kamloops (WHL) Stream 11/23/2016
Pavel Kousal Note Kousal gets a second goal on a nifty passing sequence between he and the elder Yamamoto brother. Quick hands and keeps himself in position to get the return pass. Zachary DeVine Spokane vs Kamloops (WHL) Stream 11/23/2016
Filip Krivosik Note Pushes a saucer pass trying to find Ruzicka but misses the target Brian Fogarty SVK v RUS (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Filip Krivosik Note Not nearly as quick or agile as his linemates Brian Fogarty SVK v RUS (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Filip Krivosik Note Looks like he really wants to be better than he is at this point. He has good size and works hard, but just a cut below where he needs to be. Brian Fogarty SVK v RUS (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Filip Krivosik Summary Showed a solid effort and has good size, but seemed a step slow and a half-tick late on everything. Needs to develop his raw skills and get up to the speed of the game. Brian Fogarty SVK v RUS (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Chad Krys Summary Continue to have questions about defensive awareness of Krys. Not seeing a lot of inspired offensive skills that an undersized defensive prospect will need to translate to higher levels. More viewings are needed to really see the defensive side. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Chad Krys Note Krys defensively is an adventure. Hard time staying on his skates, not effective in his own zone, often out muscled and out competed for ice. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Chad Krys Note Krys gets another turnover that leads to a breakaway, Woll saves the bacon. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Chad Krys Note Krys is danced around again as he makes an ill-advised play for the puck at his blue line. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Chad Krys Summary Krys was a faller for me in the 2016 draft and this camp only confirmed it for me. Defensively he is unreliable and can over stickhandle with the puck. Positioning when he’s without the puck looks unsure and the size is missing as well. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Chad Krys Note Not a fan of Krys’ decisions with the puck and the execution is not what you hope to see. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team Blue vs Team Sweden Live 7/31/2016
Chad Krys Note Krys having defensive positioning issues. On-going concern. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Practice Live 8/1/2016

Luke Kunin Note Kunin off the pipe. Such a release. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team Blue vs Team Sweden Live 7/31/2016
Luke Kunin Note Kunin crossovers could propel him better. Not getting the power coming out of the corners that he could, stride is fine. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Practice Live 8/1/2016
Luke Kunin Note Would like to see him engage more physically in front of his own net Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Luke Kunin Note Knocked down a fluttering, waist-high puck and fired a one-timer slapshot on net from the top of the slot: hands, poise, timing. Nice play. Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Luke Kunin Note Kunin with a poor pass that looked like he just lost concentration for a second Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Luke Kunin Summary Kunin is a player with all of the skills and talent to be a great player, expect he seems to lack that spark that sets the special players apart from the rest. Need to keep watching him to see if it was just a choppy game keeping him from finding a rhythm. Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Luke Kunin Note A little slow in his hips flipping to backwards skating. Takes a small hop to add speed to the pivot, but that won't work at the higher levels of hockey. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note Quiet most of the game, but then he's alone in the high slot on a 3-on-2 and there is no doubt. Sniper. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note Pro shot with a tricky release, he is good at disguising the release point and leaves the goaltender frozen. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note Kunin on the PK, not good stickwork, allows an easy pass through. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Luke Kunin Note Lots of movement while on the powerplay, but more floating than determined. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note Great backcheck effort to disrupt a Lockwood shorthanded breakaway. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Summary Two goals in the game, both from his deadly mid-distance wrist shot. Seems to lack a high compete level, which bothers me. I want to see him go harder on every shift instead of waiting for the play to come to him. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note Kunin’s blast on the powerplay defelcted, got over to the off wing for the one timer. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016

Luke Kunin Summary Playing offense, the vision and on-ice awareness is evident. Handles the puck well in traffic and has a quick, accurate shot. Good skating and agility. Defense wasn’t helpful, known hole in his game. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Luke Kunin Summary Kunin was great at the NCAA level and plays a tough brand of hockey. His release and shot are excellent and skating is good too but he could get more power out of his lateral movements. His stride is fine, it is more the technical and thus highly correctable areas that need some work. The intangible items are there as a shooter. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Luke Kunin Note Kunin’s skating is choppy but hands are excellent. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Blue Practice Live 7/29/2016

Janne Kuokkanen Note Great dangle to get to the net. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Janne Kuokkanen Summary Smart, determined player who works hard all over the ice. Created two goals in the game by driving into the offensive zone and making smart plays, one by driving the net, the other by swivelling around to find Puljujarvi. Untapped potential, I think, for a top-six, intelligent player. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Janne Kuokkanen Summary Really impressive camp for Kuokkanen. He played the game he needed to, was part of solid plays on both ends of the ice. He has some skating issues but nothing that can’t be fixed with a summer or two of keen attention. His game doesn’t slow down with the puck on his stick. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Janne Kuokkanen Note Kuokkanen’s release is excellent. Skating power could be refined, but skates well overall. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016

Philipp Kurashev Note Quebec running a lot of its power play through Kurashev. Almost predictably so. Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Note Kurashev loses the dangle and doesn’t get a shot off. Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Note Stable on his skates, but has that youthfulness in his skating that will develop over the next year-plus and give him better power and quicker returns on his stride. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Note Great job off the puck during a 2-on-1 to get squared and ready for a one-timer, which he guided far post past a sliding Gravel Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Note There's a lot to like about his offensive game, but I'd like to see more willingness to endure contact and get bruised up a bit to make a play Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Note Not the best choice in the closing seconds of the tied game, could have gone back to the point to an advancing defender and a chance for a big one-timer, but instead went backhand to the slot and the play was broken up. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Summary Looks bigger than his listed 5'11 height, has a good reach and balance that allows him to take up space. His offensive instincts and ability to convert chances is above average or better, and he should further develop is game over this season and next before his draft. His production at draft-year minus one is highly encouraging, to say the least. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Note Good burst of speed for Kurachev to turn the corner and get in on Gravel Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016

Oliver Kylington Note Kylington paired with Wotherspoon early. I think it is a smart, complimentary pairing. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington cheating on the backside allows the puck to leave the zone at the 11 minute mark. Play continues and gets an easy low percentage shot on net. Kylington being deployed often on the PP Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/27/2015
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington gets his pocket picked and Langolis gets a shot on goal. A rare mishandle by the young Swede. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/27/2015
Oliver Kylington Note PP time to end the 2nd was a tour de force even through he let the puck out of the zone after the face off. Usually floated back, held the puck, kicked up the speed and lead the breakout back into the offensive zone. Good low, hard shot and again quick and active. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Oliver Kylington Summary Oliver Kylington might not have had a offensively powerful game, but his defensive play has been positionally correct and responsible. Was a minus three on the game but that had more to do with the all around poor game played by the Heat. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/27/2015
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington back out, drawing some heavy offensive zone minutes. Nice two-line cross ice pass to break #48 in on net with a chance. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016

Oliver Kylington Note Caught cheating at 5:25 of 3rd and used superior skating to recover completely. Impressive viewing, a player to watch. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Oliver Kylington Summary Kylington is small, but demonstrated good body positioning and stick work. Out-developed at the moment by AHL men. Skating is very impressive. Smart angles, quick stick and sharp, hard passes. His quick transitions and overall impressive skating allows gambling and the skill to recover. I am seeing some of the risky items in his game that were all over his player notes before the draft, but nothing alarming or frankly unwelcome in an offensive defenseman. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Oliver Kylington Summary Smallish, and looks like he needs some more time to learn the finer aspects of zone play, but he is a shining example of an offensive defenseman. Excellent skating, agility and hands. Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015

Oliver Kylington Note Kylington with nice stick to drive Cuda player wide for a harmless shot. Same shift gets a hard one-timer on net, rebound kicks out and Grosenick with a monster desperation save. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington with good gap control on numerous plays in the second. A bit of muscle is all he needs but its a glaring deficiency at time. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington with quick activation and good shot on goal. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Oliver Kylington Summary Continue to be impressed with Oliver Kylington’s game. Consistency will be the issue for him, as he has a high level of skill but not much of a physical presence. He will need to develop physically to survive. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington activates in the last minute of the 1st and gets the puck down low for a chance, skating and hands! Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/27/2015
Jordan Kyrou Note Kyrou with a nice assist on the Ronning goal. Excellent pass. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jordan Kyrou Note Jordan Kyrou having a good first period. Active in all zone and making some heady passes. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jordan Kyrou Note Day carries through the neutral zone and passes to Kyrou who whips a cross ice pass to Brown who ties the game. All three players with awesome plays on that goal. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jordan Kyrou Summary Kyrou had the primary assists on both goals for Team Cherry. His strong skating was a handful for Team Orr defenders and exhibited good vision as well. Utilized his teammates well in all zones, which has not always been the case with him. Strong three-zone game from Kyrou overall. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Kevin Labanc Note Huge burst, deep knee bend, splits through the defensive high slot, and gets a nice pass from Stefano which Labanc finishes with a dart of a top-corner wrist shot. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Kevin Labanc Note Labanc is excellent in close. Tip drills are a showcase for him. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/8/2016
Kevin Labanc Note Labanc with another slick tip-in Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/7/2016
Kevin Labanc Note LaBanc's shot is tricky, comes off his stick at all angles and speeds. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/7/2016
Kevin Labanc Note Labanc’s release is filthy. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Scrimmage Live 8/11/2016
Kevin Labanc Note LaBanc’s skating is much improved. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Live 8/7/2016
Kevin Labanc Note Labanc with his second goal (this one shorthanded) after the Niagara powerplay breaks down. Pulled the puck to his backhand and buried it. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Kevin Labanc Summary Labanc is a scoring machine with great hands and anticipation. His cut off the puck through the slot was perfectly timed and his quick, relatively easy conversion looked effortless. Good speed, but needs to strengthen his defensive fundamentals. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Kevin Labanc Note Labanc is excellent on the edges. Keeps himself open to the play and gives teammates options. Not a hard shooter Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Kevin Labanc Note Labanc causing havoc and his screen nearly gets it done with the puck trickling wide. Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Kevin Labanc Note Labanc out at the point and wiggles through the crease and an excellent shot puts the Colts up 2-1 Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Kevin Labanc Note Labanc with a greasy goal short handed. Crashes the net and gets a stick on it, Nedeljkovic likely should have had that one. Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Kevin Labanc Note Labanc robbed. Stefano’s great dish to Labanc again at the top of the crease. Working in dirty areas for the goals. Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Kevin Labanc Note Labanc was the OHL scoring leader with 116 points going into this game and added two more goals. The first goal was a fantastic shot and the second was a hard-working, short-handed tally. Labanc skates very well and competes on each shift. He doesn’t have great top end speed but is very shifty. He is able to see the ice well and make smart passes. He is a skilled player but didn’t carry the puck much at all. Zachary DeVine Niagara vs Barrie (OHL) Live 3/4/2016
Dylan Labbe Summary Labbe isn’t using his teammates in either game of his I have seen. Converted defenseman and he holds the puck too long. Not much to like overall. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Pascal Laberge Note Quick release results in his second goal, but Dubois made the play with his initial assault on the net Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Pascal Laberge Summary Capitalized on his linemate Dubois's disruptions all night by showing off his exceptional wrist shot and ability to make plays in traffic at the net. Once he builds some size onto his frame, could become a dangerous top-six winger. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Stream 1/8/2016
Pascal Laberge Note Laberge has been noticeable early in the game. Skating is very good, changes speeds easily. Does need to add some meat. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pascal Laberge Note Laberge uses DeBrincat as a prop, gets around him and shoots the hell out of the puck ripping a shot past Sawchenko. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pascal Laberge Note Labarge from Dubois on the PP. Great shot by Laberge Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pascal Laberge Note Dubois and Laberge both with lackadaisical defensive coverage on that play. For all the offense they are creating, they are giving up some chances as well. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pascal Laberge Summary Simply the most dangerous man on the ice all night, Laberge lifted his stock considerably with an instant chemistry with Pierre-Luc Dubois. Laberge flashed a quick release and poise with the puck. Defensively work is needed, as Laberge was turned around a few times and was not marking his man well coming back. Defense can be taught. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Tanner Laczynski Note Tanner Laczynski just finds the back of the net. Good release. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Blue Practice Live 7/29/2016
Tanner Laczynski Note Laczynski’s hard work draws a penalty in front of the Sweden net Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - USA Team Blue vs Team Sweden Live 7/31/2016
Tanner Laczynski Note Laczynski has good straight away speed and a hard shot, but it’s often into the goalie’s chest. Not seeing much creativity Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA Practice Live 8/3/2016
Mathias Laferriere Note Nice speed on the right side, tries to turn the defenseman, then slots a nice pass to the crease. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Mathias Laferriere Note Good skater, want more from his first steps, though Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Mathias Laferriere Summary Good skater, not great. Needs better acceleration. Shows good potential, but didn't play much of a role in this game and was the first time I'd watched him closely. He's on the radar for next year, though. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Patrik Laine Summary Laine’s game is elevated in the post season. His defensive game has been adequate and is much more aware of his responsibilities with more on the line. His two goals were sniper shots, one a water bottle knocker short side and the second beating the goalie glove side. Has a great release and generates power in a very small space. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Tappara (Liiga) Live 4/8/2016
Patrik Laine Note Physical play is measured but part of his game. Certainly a tool he is exhibiting. Zakk Tappara vs Vaansan Sport (Liiga) Stream 2/19/2016
Patrik Laine Note Laine with the overtime winner. Circled the offensive zone like a shark, defenders had to give him room, and shoots from the right face off dot and snaps home the winner. Awesome shot. Zakk Tappara vs Vaansan Sport (Liiga) Stream 2/19/2016
Patrik Laine Note Laine and Puljujarvi are getting hit early and often. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Patrik Laine Summary Strong overall game for Laine. His knack for big goals was validated yet again with the OT winner after circling the entire offensive zone, but had a number of solid defensive plays, smart moves in the offensive zone, used his teammates effectively and played well all game. Impressive viewing. Zakk Tappara vs Vaansan Sport (Liiga) Stream 2/19/2016
Patrik Laine Note Laine with a huge cross-ice jailbreak pass to Puljujarvi who cuts in for the shot and Aho cleans up the trash. These guys are so good. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Patrik Laine Note Laine is a good skater, on the level of Puljujarvi. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Patrik Laine Note Quiet first period overall for Laine. Only had one good opportunity to get a head of steam. Zakk Tappara vs Vaansan Sport (Liiga) Stream 2/19/2016
Patrik Laine Note Laine as a 17-year-old is a noticeable physical specimen out on the ice. If he didn’t have a number or a name plate, you’d know exactly who he is. Zakk Tappara vs Vaansan Sport (Liiga) Stream 2/19/2016
Patrik Laine Note Laine’s hands allow him time and space, even with a defender right on him. Zakk Tappara vs Vaansan Sport (Liiga) Stream 2/19/2016
Patrik Laine Note Aware of the players around him, excellent vision on two drop plays on the same shift, one of which he just left the puck and set a pick that resulted in a good shot on net. Smart. Zakk Tappara vs Vaansan Sport (Liiga) Stream 2/19/2016
Joey LaLeggia Note Good skating with the puck up through the neutral zone, but lost possession at the offensive-zone blue line. Deked past two opposing forwards to get through the neutral zone, but lost control in a crowd of his own teammates who are all stacked up at the blue line. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note LaLeggia doesn't really inspire much as a forward for me. I thought he was much more dangerous Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note LaLeggia is easily being moved off pucks at forward. Seems totally unnatural and it shows. I think it a mistake. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Joey LaLeggia Summary Deployed as a forward and his talents were wasted. A player this size takes a lifetime to develop a way to work around their stature, and throwing him out as a forward was a waste. Not sure if this was desperation due to all the call-ups or an actual thing the Oilers are trying with LaLeggia, but either way it needs to stop. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note Good balance and stickhandling with the puck. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note Third attempt at a left-to-right toe-drag move to beat an opponent when one-on-one. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note Again trying to do too much. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Joey LaLeggia Summary Small, but quick, a smooth skater who needs to learn that he has to use his teammates more at this level. However, given the lack of quick skill on the Bakersfield team, his efforts were mostly unmatched. LaLeggia was a bright spot in a dreary, dismal game, but he will need more than fancy skating and puckhandling to earn a consistent spot in the NHL. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Joey LaLeggia Summary Fantastic skater and riverboat gambler, LaLeggia reminds me of a Dan Boyle. Makes smart plays that drive possession and scoring chances. For being only 5’10, LaLeggia is nearly always in the correct position and knows how to use his slight frame for maximum benefit. His creativity and fearlessness is something he will need to retain--whilst bulking up his slight frame--to contribute at the next level. Play in the corners was adequate, but his quick stick and good vision helps keep him out of trouble. With high risk as well as reward, a player all owners should have on their radar. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 11/8/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note Joey definitely playing the left wing, deployed on the Slepyshev line with Yakimov on the right wing. Great passing by the line leads to a 2-on-1 with LaLeggia hitting the right post coming on his offwing. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note Bit of an adventure, having trouble with assignments. Liked him better on defense. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs S
