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.

Alexis Lafreniere Note Doesn't have blazing speed, but moves okay. Doesn't extend fully on his stride, Balance looks good, though. Flaws in his skating look correctible. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018
Alexis Lafreniere Note After a deflected point shot goes wide right and back out from behind the net, it kicks straight out to Lafreniere's feet at the left side, and he buries it. His hands are deadly in close. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018
Alexis Lafreniere Note Nifty one-handed pass behind his back as his line goes up ice. The breakout pass was behind him, so he one-handed the puck behind his back and redirected it up to the player streaking up on his left wing. What a play that was. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018
Elmer Soderblom Note Big, big kid. Listed at 6'6, 215 pounds for this tournament. Uses his size to his advantage. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018

Michael Vukojevich Note Misjudges the speed of Raymond and only gets a piece of him along the boards, but it was enough to send Raymond wide and behind the net, keeping him to the outside. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018
Michael Vukojevich Note Highly active stick, pushing, checking, reaching, Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018
Michael Vukojevich Note Too many times he's reaching out trying to arm-check attacking puck carriers instead of finding the proper angle and position and using his body. Broberg just schooled him. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018
Michael Vukojevich Note Gives the puck away at the blue line, then immediately slashes as Raymond goes for a breakaway attempt. He had help, so the slash was unnecessary. The giveaway was bad, the slash was dumb. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018

Ryan Suzuki Note Reads the play, intercepts the breakout pass, feeds it back to his defenseman to setup a zone entry, Could have easily been tempted to turn that back and try to enter the zone himself, but his choice was smarter.

Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018

Filip Zadina Note Silky give-and-go with McIsaac to get to the net. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Jared McIsaac Note Smooth movement from the left side into the top of the homeplate area for a goal on a sweet wrister. Displayed great poise with the puck getting the goalie moving laterally before shooting from a dangerous spot. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Jared McIsaac Note Makes a great read in the neutral zone and jumps up into the play on the anticipation of a pass. It ended up a broken play but displayed his IQ nonetheless. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Jared McIsaac Note Lines up and misses on what would have been a devastating hip check. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Jared McIsaac Note Silky give-and-go with Zadina to get to the net. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Jared McIsaac Summary He was blasting the puck every opportunity he got. He is in possession of a strong and accurate shot. With his offensive game really turning around in the second half of the season, his overall point totals will not be an accurate reflection of the sort of player he can be when playing with confidence and letting the puck rip. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Raphael Lavoie Summary One of the few minor critiques I can make on Lavoie’s game is that he might need to work on shot accuracy. Other than that this kid has all the makings of the next great out of Halifax. There’s no doubt this guy is a high end 1st rounder next year, the only question is how high. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Xavier Parent Note Tries to dance through neutral zone and gets overpowered, coughing it up. This kid has wheels and offensive instinct but often gets overpowered and needs to find better ways to make his skills work for him. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Xavier Parent Summary Multiple times Parent was getting knocked around when attempting skilled plays that probably blew people away in lower levels. It’s easy to see why people were hyped on this kid, but he’s clearly not shown enough at the major jr level to maintain the early season spotlight he had for the 2019 draft. If he can figure out how and when to employ his evident skillset he could pop next year. At this point I’m not sure if he’s much higher than a late 1st/early 2nd but he’ll be one I keep a close eye on. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Adam Raska Note Buries Mastrosimone, making him pay for puck watching. Gets called for boarding, but it wasn't. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018

John Farinacci Summary Smooth skater with excellent edgework, gets to spots on the ice quickly. Always involved in the play, especially in the offensive zone, but looked good in his own end, too. Plays efficiently. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Luke Toporowski Note Speedy, good effort on the forecheck. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018

Marcel Barinka Note Really aggressive on the penalty kill, attacking the puck carrier, getting up ice to forecheck, then getting back to the top of the diamond. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Marcel Barinka Note Decent agility, but no speed yet in his stride, Looks lumbering in a straight line. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Marcel Barinka Note Down 4-0 late in the second period and he's trying hard to make something happen with the puck. Generating a couple of good chances with effort and force of will. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Marcel Barinka Summary Skating needs improvement, which could come as his builds into his 6'3 frame. Work rate was there, game awareness was there, and he goes to the net. Still needs to develop his play, but a decent player to watch. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Nicholas Robertson Note Tries to do too much with the puck and gives it away to the Czech penalty kill unit. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Nicholas Robertson Note Uses his foot to keep the puck in at the offensive blue line. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Nicholas Robertson Note Keeps the puck on his stick too long. Looks like a player who is used to having to do a lot on his own. Needs to realize that he hasn't talented teammates around him. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018

Radek Muzik Note Back on the ice after his extended time down in the circle. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Radek Muzik Summary Saw a lot of ice time in all situations, and his hustle was particularly useful on the penalty kill. In the zone, he makes decisions quickly, and generally found the right play with the puck, though seemed to lack a bit of creativity. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Lots of power on that wrister. Missed the net, rattled the boards. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018

Robert Mastrosimone Note Finds a tasty rebound at the top of the crease and fires that nasty left-handed wrist shot past the goalie. He can shoot, no question about that. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note In a game lacking flow and rhythm, Mastrosimone is the guy pouncing on chances. Its almost like this choppy pace suits his game just fine. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Summary Mastrosimone is a shooter. Needs to up his effort away from the puck. His passes were okay, but because he seems to want to shoot everything he touches (and for good reason), the rest of his game was harder to evaluate in this contest. His skating seems to have improved over previous viewings, but he only goes hard when he sees an opportunity. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Not showing much hustle on the first-period powerplay. Going back to retrieve the puck looking almost disinterested Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note He may not move his feet much, but when the puck came to him in the offensive zone, he rifled a wrist shot form the top of the circle that beat the goalie clean. Zero hesitation, a bit off balance, snipes it home. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Tentative skater. He just turned the wrong way on a stop. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Thoughtless crosschecking in the offensive zone while on the forecheck, with just a minute left in the period. Absolutely no reason for that, at all. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Filip Prikryl Note First couple of steps look sluggish. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Filip Prikryl Note Passive the defensive zone, just shuffling around the middle/high slot area. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Filip Prikryl Note Puck on his stick in the offensive zone, defenders closing in, he turned into traffic instead of making an easier pass to an open defenseman at the blue line. Gives up the puck. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Filip Prikryl Note Needs to improve his speed. Right now he's a step or two off the pace, and that will become a limiting factor eventually. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Filip Prikryl Note Top of the crease during the powerplay, but not really setting screens as much as stepping to the side and looking for deflections. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Filip Prikryl Summary Good size at 6'0 but thin (roster has him at 158) and not overly physical at all. His skating is average at best, and his feet few steps do not help him at all. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note First shift, highly active in the offensive zone, with his stick and his feet. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018

Kaapo Kakko Note Another instance where he outworks the opponents and comes away with the puck and a sudden opportunity on net. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Summary Plays the game so well in so many respects, but what really stood out was his crisp, accurate decision-making and ability to dominate play in tight spaces. The Czechs had no answers for him in the game, and once the puck was on his stick, Kakko was able to make the plays he wanted to regardless of what the defenders tried. Fast, good burst, good hands and a quick release, but it was his mental game and vision that was impressive in this game. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note Uses his hands well to adjust puck distance when stickhandling, good through tight spaces, turns well on edges and commands the puck while changing directions Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018

Kaapo Kakko Note Making the right choices at every opportunity, smart decisions executed well. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note Constant movement with and without the puck pays off, as Kakko worked the puck from below the goal line out to the top of the circle, sends it to Ranta, then curls around to the crease. The puck finds him and he bangs it home. The best part was Kakko had his stick on the ice, in position, and the rebound came right to his blade. Fundamental hockey. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note Gets a pass on the neutral zone boards, harassed by two Czech players, spins out, dekes around another Czech player at the blue line and suddenly he's created a clean two-on-one. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Konsta Hirvonen Note Speedy, good acceleration, jumps up the ice and to the puck. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018

Mikko Kokkonen Note Gets back to play a two-on-one against, holds his position well, uses his stick to take away the pass, then clears the rebound away. Well-played defense, there. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018

Mikko Kokkonen Summary Got a ton of ice time in the game, and for good reason. Plays with energy and speed, works the puck quickly but without rushing the play, and is willing to either skate the puck out of the zone or make good sharp breakout passes. Pushes up ice and joins the rush when the opportunity is there. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Mikko Petman Note Not the prettiest game right now, but he works hard. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018

Mikko Petman Summary Average speed that should improve over the coming months. Works and plays hard, but his struggled to get everything wrapped into a quality package.

Petr Cajka Note Takeaway at the blue line by proper positioning and stickwork. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Petr Cajka Summary Seems to lack offensive creativity, but he worked hard despite some errors in his own end. Pushed play up the ice when he had the puck, but lacks a spark. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ville Heinola Note Has the puck at the left point, shoulder-fakes the forward defending him to draw him off the boards and then lays a pass down to his teammate on the half-boards. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ville Heinola Note Well-read play gets him to the puck in the neutral zone and he slaps it back into the Czech end, stopping a breakout. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ville Heinola Summary Smart defender who mans the point, but tends more to patrol his own end of the ice. Positions himself well, makes good reads. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018

Jake Leschyshyn Note First step is a hop instead of a good push. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
Jake Leschyshyn Note Hard work below the goal line, both even strength and on the penalty kill. Battles, uses balance on his skates to dig in for position. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018

Arthur Kaliyev Note Tic-tac-toe, he's the toe, gets the puck near his feet but gets a good shot on net that only a quality save kept out of the net.

Libor Hajek Summary A two-way defenseman who plays a smart game in all zones. His reads in the defensive zone are solid, and he can make the pass or skate the puck out of trouble. Not a huge offensive threat, but has the look of a middle-pair NHL defenseman. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Marian Studenic Note Well-balanced, keeps his feet despite hits along the boards Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018

Matt Bradley Note Bit of push and shove after the whistle. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018

Nick Henry Note Sneaky backhand shot from the slot. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Nick Henry Note Decent skater, not the tightest of turns or the fastest, but good enough. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Nick Henry Note Late in the third, finds a rebound in the slot and snaps it home despite traffic, breaks the tie late. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robbie Holmes Note Like his top-end speed. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robbie Holmes Note Not much acceleration, hunched over, truncated strides in his first steps. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robbie Holmes Note Looks like a different skater when in motion. Struggles through the first few steps, but can motor and change gears when he's already going. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robert Thomas Note Out to kill a penalty early. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robert Thomas Note Tips a point shot at the high slot for the game's first goal. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robert Thomas Note Controls the puck while using edges for a hard turn. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robert Thomas Note His shot is hard and really deceptive. Fooled the nettie on two straight shots, one off the cross bar. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robert Thomas Note Shoulder fakes, hand fakes, stick fakes. Super elusive when the puck is on his stick. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robert Thomas Note Beautiful vision late in the third period, threads a pass through several defenders, but the ultimate shot was saved. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robert Thomas Summary Thomas has blossomed into a legitimate NHL hockey player with a complete game. Kills penalties, backchecks, forechecks, and when he has the puck on his stick, he's in complete command of the game. Always on the ice in this game, and never looked winded or playing at less than full speed. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Sam Steel Note Lightning from the one-timer! Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Will Bitten Note Works hard on the forecheck. Not fast, but adequate speed. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Will Bitten Note Hard on the back check. Nice speed there. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Will Bitten Summary Bitten looks like a different player than what he showed a couple of years ago. Plays hard in his own end, and hounds the puck, but he looks like a player whose offensive confidence is massively depleted. He was puck skills and a shot, but looked timid in the offensive zone in this game, and his stats show it. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Aleksi Heponiemi Note Edges and agility are so much fun to watch Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Aleksi Heponiemi Note Shows off his great speed to get back and stop the clean Ducharme breakaway, and Ducharme has good wheels. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Aleksi Heponiemi Summary So quick, so fast, and has great hands and vision to match his feet. Has all the special tools needed to overcome his incredibly slight frame (5'10, 141 pounds at 19). There is a definitely a place for him in the current NHL, and he could become a threat on a top-six wing. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Colby Sissons Note Horrible backhand pass along the offensive blue line. Just threw it blind to the middle of the ice, and it led to a clean breakaway for the opponents. Horrible play. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Glenn Gawdin Note Feisty, physical, pushes the line Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Glenn Gawdin Note Second time he's taken a penalty for being overly aggressive (roughing, slashing) when it wasn't necessary. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Glenn Gawdin Summary Hard-playing agitator with some skill, but his game is more brute force than finesse. Put up 125 points and 101 minutes in penalties in an overage season, but points are more than his previous two seasons combined. Looks like a future AHL player who can get a few cracks at a NHL roster. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Justin Ducharme Note Killing penalties, shows good speed through the neutral zone as he goes after a puck Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Justin Ducharme Note Uses his speed to get back to break up an attack. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Justin Ducharme Note End of a long shift, but he let his man get ahead of him into the defensive zone and take a good pass for a one-on-one with the goalie. Ducharme slashed him to try to prevent the grade-A chance. Two more strides would have prevented all of it. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Justin Ducharme Note Good read to intercept the blue-line pass and take off for a shorthanded break Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Justin Ducharme Note Quiet skater, smooth easy strides generate quality speed. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Justin Ducharme Summary Speedy, played with a high level of energy and worked hard at both ends. Had a few off moments (see the note about letting his man get away from him), but in general he was involved with the play in all three zones. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Max Patterson Note Tall, long legs, moves okay but looks like he needs to develop into his frame. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Max Patterson Note Acceleration is lacking at this point, a bit lumbering in short spaces, but okay on edges and straight lines. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Max Patterson Note Has adequate speed once he gets going, but he'll need to improve his first few steps to have any future success. Could be fixed with coaching and training. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Michal Ivan Note Plays a physical game, locks up an opponent on the boards. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Michal Ivan Note Willing to push play up ice with above-average speed, but more of defensive-minded two-way defender. 70/30-type guy. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Michal Ivan Note Takes a hit to make the correct play. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Summary Dobson is the complete package for an NHL defenseman. He's got great size at 6'3 and 178 and will add muscle as me matures physically. He plays a smart, accurate game in the defensive zone, using his stick, feet and smarts to gain and keep position against attackers, either in front of the net or in the corners. He plays like a field marshal, aligning his troops effectively, at both ends of the ice. He has a good shot and uses it appropriately, but also makes good, sharp passes in all three zones. Dobson has the potential to be a NHL All-Star player. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Note Strong, not fast, skating with big, smooth strides. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Note Uses his body and angles to shield the puck from forecheckers. Solid edgework allows him to gain superior position. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Note Takes the puck into the offensive zone and fires a shot on goal. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Note With nettie down and out, Dobson with a leg save. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Note On the power play, moving into open spaces, calling out directions, finding spots, rips a one-timer, saved. Like his command of the shift, there. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Note He's quality, and will become a very mobile defenseman with size and offensive control/command. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Alexander Turcotte Note Uses his edges a lot to moderate speed and angle. Above-average speed but not a flyer. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Alexander Turcotte Note Second-unit PP time Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Alexander Turcotte Note Great vision from below the goal line to snag a loose puck and immediately find a teammate in the slot. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Alexander Turcotte Note Bad shift in the defensive zone. Looked out of position, jumping plays in the wrong direction. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Alexander Turcotte Summary Skating and hands are there, as is his vision and offensive-zone play. A bit shaky in the defensive zone, with mental mistakes that illustrate more his youth and inexperience at this level of play than his ability. Still looks raw, but promising. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Cole Caufield Note Poor choice to turn up ice while the puck went the other way. Should have engaged there instead of trying to jump the play. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Cole Caufield Note Second-unit PP time, struggling to find a rhythm, losing pucks at his feet more than once. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Cole Caufield Note A shooter, through and through. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Cole Caufield Note Just sloppy in his own end. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Cole Caufield Note That's the second time he's tried to bounce one off of the goaltender from below the goal line. Low percentage play that he thinks he can make. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Cole Caufield Summary Small, quick player who looks like he is always thinking about putting the puck on the net, too often at the expense of other, better options. More than once he looked up ice from his own zone instead of committing to defense. In the offensive end, he buzzed and worked hard, but made questionable choices, going for the riskier plays instead of the more simple options that used his teammates. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
David Lilja Note In the slot on the powerplay, takes a nice pass, tries to redirect but hits the shins of the defender, but he grabs the rebound and snaps it past the netminder. Quick, accurate hands. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
David Lilja Note Plays from the hashmarks down, If he's not in that area, he goes hard to get there. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
David Lilja Note Not the greatest skater. Wide feet in his stride slows him down a bit. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
David Lilja Summary Puts in a lot of effort on every shift, plays the game in the high-contact areas and looks comfortable there. Showed good hands on more than just his goal, and although his skating needs work, he was consistently in good spots on the ice. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Moves through the slot, gets a pass, fires just wide. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Moves well without the puck on the powerplay, working toward open, dangerous spots on the ice. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Puck handles through the offensive zone, gets a clean path to the net, but saved by the goaltender. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Skates with a smooth calmness, covers distance but is not what I would call fast. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Liked how he came out of the corner and found his point man with a nice pass to set up a shot on goal. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Defensive hustle and awareness on that shift was excellent. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Nice, smart, simple pass to complete the transition through the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Summary Smart player with good vision and game awareness. Showed solid work rate at both ends of the ice, above-average vision and hands, and good skating. He also shows the capacity to simplify the game, a quality attribute in this age group. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Nikola Pasic Note Skating looks clunky and off balance Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Nikola Pasic Note Edges are not great. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Nikola Pasic Summary Skating needs a lot of work for him to be able to excel at upper levels of the game. Works hard on the ice, shows decent awareness and skills, so if he can improve his footwork, could become a good prospect. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Trevor Janicke Note Looks confidant skating the puck through the neutral zone. Good pace with the puck on his stick. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Trevor Janicke Note Killing penalties, forechecking hard. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Trevor Janicke Note Looked slow on that shift. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Trevor Janicke Summary An all-around good player that goes up and down the ice. Small but solid frame that he uses well. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Alexander Khovanov Note Centering Denisenko and Svechnikov is a plum assignment Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Alexander Khovanov Note Gets a two-on-one and chips the puck over to Denisenko who plants it. Proper read, easy play. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Alexander Khovanov Note Attentive on defense, good backchecking, uses his speed to get back. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Alexander Zhabreyev Note Small, scrappy player. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Alexander Zhabreyev Note Out of the penalty box, jets to a loose puck and makes a nifty pass to release an attack. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Alexander Zhabreyev Note Not fair that he's on a line with Iskhakov, who is roughly the same size but just so much better at basically everything. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Bode Wilde Note Left point on the powerplay Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Bode Wilde Note One-timers are low to the ice but not particularly powerful because he hasn't had a truly clean connection. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Bode Wilde Note Again with a one-timer that he doesn't catch cleanly, and this one sails up over the net. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jack Hughes Note What a wonderful look to Farabee who hits the wide-open net. Hughes was brilliant on that play. This game has been heating up, and I wondered who would step up. Hughes did there. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Pivonka Note Pivonka will be a bottom-six player on a NHL team. Wins faceoffs, always working, takes punishment. Workhorse player. Unpretentious game. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Carrying the puck through the neutral zone on the powerplay, shovels it to his left to no one in particular Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Like his patience there to hold the puck under pressure and wait for the play to develop. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note On the penalty now, using his feet, stick, positioning to create turnovers and disrupt plays Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Battler with agility, change of direction and skill. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Centering the top powerplay unit, with Hughes, Wahlstrom and Farabee Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note On the penalty kill again, draws a penalty with pure hustle. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Stick lift and picks Denisenko's pocket Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Acceleration isn't great, but otherwise a good skater. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Fantastic give-and-go with Farabee, who hits Wise back and springs him into the slot. Wise beats the goaltender, but not the post. Excellent play, and on the penalty kill. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note His lack of burst cost him some D coverage there. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Makes me crazy. Takes the puck deep, throws a mostly no-look pass to Hughes who buries it. Awesome play. This guy is going to make the fans of his NHL team apoplectic. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Absolutely ridiculous turnover? Was the Russian player calling for the puck? That was bad. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Kirill Marchenko Note Leads a three-on-one down the left, pulls up to wait for a diving defender to slide by, then nails Morozov with a perfect pass for an easy redirection goal. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Kirill Marchenko Note Not of lot of urgency in his game, his whole posture looks nonchalant. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Kirill Marchenko Note Nice skater in all directions, decent puck handler, too, but doesn't look like he has put all the parts together yet. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Mattias Samuelsson Note Makes the absolute wrong choice, gives a clean giveaway to Svechinikov to punishes him with a breakaway goal. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Mattias Samuelsson Note Down 3-0 in the second period, on the powerplay, and his puck movement looks a bit lazy to me. Nearly gave another puck away. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Oliver Wahlstrom Note I'm a fan. I'd want him on my NHL favorite NHL team if I had one. Fans will love this guy. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Still haven't seen Boqvist use a slap shot. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Adam Boqvist Note There's a slap shot! A one-timer attempt, but he fanned miserably on the attempt and had to corral the loose puck and reset. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Doesn't rattle easily, this kid. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Filip Prikryl Note Tries to deke and drag, got an off-balance shot away but easily saved by good goaltender positioning. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Showing off his speed again. Such a fast straight-line player, always a threat to go deep. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Wow! Gets the puck at his own right-wing circle while on the penalty kill, saw the point player pinching down on him, and banged the puck off the boards into the empty space in the neutral zone, jetting around the defender and got a dangerous breakaway chance shorthanded. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Again with speed to the outside, another partial breakaway, takes a slash on his hands, get the goaltender to the ice, but a great save foils the attack. Without the slash, Lauko could probably have elevated the puck more and gotten it up over the sprawling leg. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Trying to get something going, but his support is lacking. He's basically on his own in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Michal Teply Note Big guy, a bit cumbersome in his skating form Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Michal Teply Note Below-average speed, but decent awareness helps. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Michal Teply Note Just got undressed by Boqvist. Yikes. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018

Samuel Fagemo Note Goes to the net with the puck. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Samuel Fagemo Note High-traffic-area player. Looks comfortable with lots of bodies around him. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Vojtech Doktor Note Nice skater, threw a hard shot on net. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Vojtech Doktor Note Gets called for a boarding, but I don't think he had a chance on that. Tried to stop Gustafsson cutting behind the net, and Gustafsson turned at the point of contact. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Vojtech Doktor Note Successful deployment of the Starfish Defensive Posture ™ Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018

Adam Boqvist Note Partial breakaway, good save then he's the guy back tying up the trailer to prevent a two-on-way the other way. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Adam Boqvist Summary So impressive as a player, at both ends of the ice. He is a leader on the ice, always involved in the play at both ends, and skates beautifully. He's an it-factor player who stands out, even among the best players of his age group. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Axel Andersson Note Speedy and agile, smooth on his pivots Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018

Axel Andersson Note Skates the puck through the neutral zone and wrists one on net. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Axel Andersson Summary Overshadowed by his more skilled teammate Adam Boqvist, but an otherwise quality two-way defenseman. Plays a smart, aware game at both ends, very good skating, moves the puck up ice with either a first pass or skating out to the neutral zone. Handles the puck well, and has vision to be a good distributor. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Bode Wilde Note Quietly having an excellent game, then bam! A rocket slapshot from the blueline beats the goaltender clean. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
David Gustafsson Note Gains possession in the corner of his defensive zone, hesitates, and gets stripped of the puck. Needed a quicker decision there. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
David Gustafsson Note Very wide stride, doesn't bring his feet back underneath but outside of his shoulders. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
David Gustafsson Note Skating is just okay. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
David Gustafsson Note Crafty faceoff win in the offensive zone Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
David Gustafsson Summary Has some tools, but unless he can improve on his skating, he looks like a player that will struggle at the higher levels. Didn't show particularly exciting offensive ability, but could be a solid bottom-six worker if he can get his skating up to what it needs to be. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Jack Hughes Note Literally trying not watch him, but he just demands attention. So good. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Jacob Olofsson Note Fantastic move to freeze a defender and go around him easily. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Joel Farabee Note Speed all day Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Strong and physical on the boards. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Is there an opposite of stay-at-home? Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Really nice skater for his size. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Solid and positionally aware in his own zone, offensive instincts, shot and passing are very good, but his decision-making in the neutral zone is often curious at best. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Noticeably absent when it's time to kill penalties. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Nice hip check. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Summary Continues to confuse me with his decision-making. In general, he's a big body and a good skater, fluid and strong, plays with a bit of snarl in his game. In the offensive zone he makes decent reads, passes well and has a good shot. But too many times he attacks the puck at in the neutral zone (either leaving the D zone or while transitioning back from the offensive zone) and gets caught out of position and becomes a defensive liability. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Marcus Westfalt Note Goes to the net, and flicks the puck off the post. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Marcus Westfalt Note Working against Miller in the corner, wins the puck. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Marcus Westfalt Note Often just shovels the puck instead of crisp passing Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Marcus Westfalt Summary Player who can help his team gain and keep the puck, and has some offensive upside. Middle-six looks like the upside, though. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Oliver Wahlstrom Note The accuracy on that shot to the top corner, from the blue line, was ridiculous. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Patrick Giles Note Using his size to take up the top-of-the-crease space on the powerplay Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Patrick Giles Note Tiny strides, upright with shoulders down Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Patrick Giles Note Backhand flip into traffic goes the other way. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Patrick Giles Summary Not overly impressive in this game. Made some bad choices, average skater, but willing to do the dirty work when necessary. Needs additional looks to get a better read on his game. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ty Emberson Note Calm, maintains his gap, then staples his man to the board. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ty Emberson Note Quality breakout pass Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ty Emberson Note Righthand shot defender playing left point on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ty Emberson Note Good job to use the boards for a bounce pass breakout. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ty Emberson Summary Good size with mobility and sound defensive awareness. Not overly physical but plays the body well. His offensive contributions were relatively limited in the game, but he moves the puck well, and generally makes the right choice when distributing. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Fakes left, goes right, shakes the defender who then just tackles Boqvist to the ice Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Summary Boqvist is a fast and agile skater, with excellent (or better) lateral and backwards movement and acceleration. His skating is a weapon at both ends of the ice. He is a smart player who makes good reads, and will lead rushes out of his own end. Defensively, he plays sensible, smart positional play, using angles and his skating to keep defenders away from the danger spots. In transition or on offense, he can beat defenders one-on-one, his vision in the zone is superb and his overall hockey iq is upper echelon. Shooting needs a bit of work to develop a range of shots, but shows power and accuracy on the shot he has now. Boqvist is deserving of his top-prospect status. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Activating quickly, but has the wheels to get back to his coverage when the puck goes the other way. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Excellent skater Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Uses his stick and speed to disrupt a potential breakaway - smart, fast play. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Skating is effortless and so fast and agile, allows him to engage quickly and recover, but his smarts keeps him out of trouble in the first place. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Trying so hard to make something happen for the Swedes. All over the offensive zone on that powerplay sequence. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Got a lot of power on that wrist shot, just inches wide Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Slings his shot more than really leaning into it, but he gets power behind it. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Distributes the puck quickly, wisely. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Ginning Note Colty legs, long and thin. Skates well, though. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Ginning Note Strides look slow, but his legs are so long its hard to read. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Ginning Note Bad blue-line, backhand pass that was an easy interception and quickly goes the other way. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Ginning Note Passes are a bit too deliberate, telegraphing his puck movement. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Ginning Summary Tall, thin defender who needs time to develop his game. There were flaws (thoughtless passing, positional problems, a slowness in his decision-making) that make me skeptical, but time will tell. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Arttu Nevasaari Note Gets his second goal of the game, again from right at the top of the crease, this time another one-touch tip in, but while getting crosschecked to the ice. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Arttu Nevasaari Note Changes speed to fool defenders Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Arttu Nevasaari Summary Good net presence that resulted in goals. Good skater, especially with the puck, but Nevasaari is a better forward off the puck, the guy who will absorb the hits to make a play, and he showed good hands to convert his chances. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jacob Olofsson Note Smart, calm pass back to his own end on the penalty kill. Like the didn't try to force something there. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jacob Olofsson Note Flubs a great pass and a wide-open net. Gets a second chance from the same spot on the same shift, but gets stopped by a dandy glove save. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jacob Olofsson Summary Consistently involved in the play, but in this game was not overly impactful. He made plays, but not enough, and looked average in several aspects of the game. Above-average skating. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jesperi Kotkaniemi Note Sharp, quick pass to the slot and hits the stick of Nevasaari. Great pass for an easy goal. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jesperi Kotkaniemi Note Constantly involved in the play, gets a loose puck behind the net and a quick wraparound goal. That's a goal and two assists in the first period, so far. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jesperi Kotkaniemi Note Working the left point on the powerplay, just made two fantastic plays to keep the puck in the offensive zone, on the first he zipped a long diagonal pass to find a dangerous chance at the far circle. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jesperi Kotkaniemi Note Skates the puck though the offensive zone like he's on a mission. So determined, fast. Good puck carrier. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jesperi Kotkaniemi Note All alone in the high slot, Nordgren finds him, and he sends the water bottle for a ride. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jesperi Kotkaniemi Summary A constant presence in the game, always working, always around the puck. Passes were sharp and on target, willing to take punishment to get to the traffic areas and made good plays when he was there. This was a multi-point game where everything seemed to work for him. Skating was good but didn't stand out as being a superior skill, but his high work rate and game awareness certainly did. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Lenni Killinen Note On the doorstep, parked at the crease, got two good looks at the net. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Lenni Killinen Note Breaks up a Boqvist zone entry with a darting, active stick Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Oscar Back Note Tall player Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Oscar Back Note Bends at the waist when he skates, more than bends his knees. Has a hunched over look a lot of the time. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Oscar Back Note Skating looks awkward as mentioned, but his hands are deft and agile. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Oscar Back Note Skating definitely needs improvement, good balance but lacks power and speed. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Oscar Back Note Little spin move at the offensive blue line and backhands a pass to the man on the wing. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Oscar Back Summary Skating is an issue as his mechanics look problematic at present. Seemed to look a step slower than the game pace and as such didn't contribute much to the game. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Sampo Ranta Note Uses his edges well, keeps his feet wide apart when gliding with the puck into the zone Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Gajarsky Note Drops a big shoulder into the puck carrier at the blue line. Solid, crunching hit. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Gajarsky Note Loses his balance while trying to turn quickly. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Gajarsky Note Holding the puck below the end line on the powerplay, managing the flow well. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Gajarsky Note Carries the puck up ice to gain the zone on the power play, then tries to force himself between two Russian defenders and gives the puck away. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Gajarsky Summary Showed moments of offensive awareness, but was not effective in general. Had a good work rate, but made some poor decisions with and away from the puck, and was a non-factor in the game Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Out to kill a 5-on-3 powerplay Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Blocks a point shot Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Hard check into the boards, gets called for a penalty. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Well-placed pass finds Denisenko in the high slot for a one-timer goal. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note The number of tools that he has and uses appropriately to keep puck possession is astounding at times. He'll use his size, reach, stick lifts, positioning, quickness, strength, all alternating with intelligent choices and quick hands and awareness are well matched. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Possession machine: weaves through traffic in the neutral zone, gains the zone, makes a power move to the net, wards off the defender with his body, changes direction, gets a good wraparound chance. At least four opponents tried to get the puck from him, and not one of them was close. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Showing off his passing skills on that sequence. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Up 6-2, five minutes left in the 3rd and he's out on the penalty kill. Intercepts a pass in the offensive zone, then dekes, waits, and that’s a shorthanded goal. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Summary Not a lot more to say about Svechnikov. Big, high iq, excellent hands and tremendous puck possession player. I liked that he was not forcing passes in this game, and instead playing inside the flow of the game. Svechnikov is a natural talent who would be first overall in the 2018 draft if not for the brilliance that is Dahlin. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Grigory Denisenko Note Skating is very good, nice crossover steps, generates good speed going backwards while controlling the puck. Offensive IQ is really good. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Grigory Denisenko Note Patiently working the puck on the left half-boards, buying time, then wires a pass cross ice to Svechnikov, hard, right on the tape through traffic. Great pass. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Grigory Denisenko Note Gets good jump up ice, draws a penalty shot! For his shot, he starts wide left, glides into the slot, and wrists one far side above a low glove from Dostal. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Grigory Denisenko Note Calm with the puck, changes speed easily while in possession, gets the defender to move and then capitalizes on the open space. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Grigory Denisenko Note Great backcheck play to break up a potential 2-on-1 and gets a clean takeaway. Up 6-2 and working hard to stop attacks. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Grigory Denisenko Summary Smart hockey player with top-notch vision and offensive abilities, but who works hard on the back check and kills penalties. Worked incredibly well with Svechnikov, and the two were devastating on the ice together in this game. Quick hands and really patient with the puck on his stick. He's a playmaker with a shot and the ability to put the puck in the net. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Ivan Morozov Note Picks off a slow, lazy pass in the neutral zone, then hits the offensive zone, rips one far side, bar down from the circle. Great read, nasty shot, all on a 3-on-5 penalty kill Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Puck race, uses his reach to poke the puck forward ahead of the defender, then uses his speed to get around him, but runs out of ice Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Hard slapper puts a defender to the ice. Lauko has easily been the Czechs' most dangerous player. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Horrible slash against Svechnikov. Frustration play down 4-2 in the third as Svechnikov was alone in the slot. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Hard power move down the right wing, keeps the puck to the outside, drops his shoulder, drives the net and chips the puck up just over the bar. Speed and power wide with good hands on that play. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Summary Lots of tools with high iq and vision, skates well and shows good instincts at both ends of the ice. Played hard on every shift, and showed a lot of competitiveness in coming back to the ice after that bad-looking moment in the first period. Might not have the elite-level talent, but he's a good, smart hockey player Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Shows good hand/eye to find a rebound and snap it home for the game's first goal Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Working the slot on the powerplay Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Works hard to get a shot away with a Russian player on his back, then goes hard and awkwardly into the boards. Looks like a shoulder injury. Gets helped off the ice, bent double with his arm immobile. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Back on the ice in the second period after that nasty-looking crash into the corner boards in the first. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Shows excellent play awareness to intercept a pass in his own zone. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Stupendous vision to find the backhand pass around a defender to find a teammate cutting across the end line for a far post chance that draws a penalty. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note More displays of vision as he fakes and finds a teammate at the post, who then misses a wide-open net high. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Fast, creates a breakaway, but a really good save stops him. Gained two steps on the defender in the puck race. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Michal Kvasnica Note Skating is smooth and powerful, backwards and transitioning Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Michal Kvasnica Note Relentless forechecking, using his skating to harass the puck all over the offensive zone Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018

Michal Kvasnica Note Breaks up another pass, springs an odd-man rusk, then hurries up ice to become the trailer. Gets the pass and is stymied by a sick save, Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Michal Kvasnica Note Working in front of the nettie on the powerplay. Strong in maintaining his spot, but not overly dangerous when the puck reaches his stick Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Michal Kvasnica Note Drags his back foot to try to fake the defender, then shoots a medium-strength wrist shot from distance that the goaltender handled easily. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Michal Kvasnica Summary Very good skater with size who is hard worker, but looks like he lacks offensive instincts and hand skills. Moves the puck okay, but is more effective on the penalty kill or clogging up the middle than he is with the puck on his stick. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Ruslan Iskhakov Note Super speedy, change of directions, straightline, acceleration, first step. Excellent skater, but so small. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Ruslan Iskhakov Note Stick skills and speed are off the charts. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Ruslan Iskhakov Summary Has everything that is needed and wanted from a hockey player: speed, quickness, explosive skating, puck skills, non-stop motor, awareness, iq. The full package deal. The problem is that he's listed at 5'7 and looks even smaller on ice, and he plays away from contact and danger. Can his game translate to small ice with men that are taller, bigger and stronger? Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Amazing backhand pass that found an open man, but was too good and the teammate skated past the puck. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Coming off the leftwing side, protects the puck by dragging it off his left hip, changes angle, puts a hard wrist shot on goal, saved but the goalie had no idea where the puck was when it hit him. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Ridiculous shift in which at least four opposing players had cracks at him down low but couldn't stop him at all, gets the shot off, rebound gets put away. Filthy, filthy assist. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note His skating is so smooth and effortless, no matter what situation. Burst, speed, changes, anything. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Tries a lacrosse pullup from behind the net, but the goalie hugged the post and prevented the goal. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note In the corner, fakes the defender and turns him around, then steps to the front of the net and plants it. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Phenomenal eye-hand coordination Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Again showing a tendency to force passes. It's an aspect of his game that is problematic. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Summary Simply no denying that Svechnikov is extremely talented, with size and tremendous work ethic at both ends of the ice. Drives the net, makes strong and dexterous plays that not many players can make. A couple of coachable flaws like forcing passes when unnecessary, but the creativity, skillset and forceful play are off the charts. Elite talent in a big frame.

Connor McMichael Note First two steps don't look like a lot, but he covers ground very quickly Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018

Evan Bouchard Note Tracks back to the puck so well, so calm and in control Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Evan Bouchard Note How does he always end up where the puck is? Offensive zone, defensive zone, wherever. Puck goes to a player, it's often Bouchard. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Evan Bouchard Note Typifying his smart play, he brings the puck into the offensive zone, drops the puck to a trailing forward, then closes the gap to the defender and lifts his stick to give the new puck carrier more time and space to make a play.

Evan Bouchard Note Ridiculous patience then a fake shot, pass perfectly on the tape through traffic finds Formenton behind the defense for an easy backhand-forehand goal Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Evan Bouchard Summary Big offensive-defenseman (6'2, 192) who captains the London Knights as if he was born to play that role. Always engaged in the play, whether fronting the oppositions top attackers or creating or joining a rush. Has a nose for the net, a variety of offensive weapons, but yet is the first guy back to the defensive zone. Chooses his attacks wisely and is rarely out of position. Could be a top-five pick in his draft class. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018

Liam Foudy Note His speed is disruptive Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Liam Foudy Summary Elite skating, with tremendous speed that he uses as the foundation for his entire game. Foudy has a good skill set, but his feet will take him to the NHL, and his hands and mental game will have to follow him there. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Luke Bignell Note Not much urgency in his game at this stage, up 7-4 in the third. Still, I'd like to see more effort, especially in his own end. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Mathew Hill Note Took a huge hit up high as he was trying to clear a puck. No effect. Made the pass. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Mathew Hill Note Long reach that he uses well to keep good gaps, uses his length to angle the puck carrier deep behind the net and not allow a path to the crease. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Mathew Hill Note Soft wrist shot from the point Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Mathew Hill Note Stay-at-home guy. Doesn't look eager to go up ice at all. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Mathew Hill Summary Solid defender with height (6'1) and plenty of time to fill out his frame. Positioning is solid, uses his reach well and maintains good gaps. Not much of an offensive game at this point. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Nathan Dunkley Note Gets turned around by Svechnikov, and loses him to the front of the net. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018

Nathan Dunkley Note Release on a wrister fairly slow and deliberate when something more urgent was needed. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Ryan Suzuki Note Excellent acceleration. Finds top speed in just a couple of steps and covers a lot of distance, too. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Ryan Suzuki Note Awareness sparkling as he sees the play in the opposite corner of the offensive zone, steps towards the crease in anticipation and then zips a one-timer into the net from ten feet out. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Ryan Suzuki Note High-risk pass on the offensive zone is intercepted and turned up ice the other way. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Ryan Suzuki Note Awareness and IQ are just fantastic Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Ryan Suzuki Note Accurate shooter with quick feet and excellent hockey smarts. That’s a highly dangerous combo. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Ryan Suzuki Summary Suzuki is still a year removed from his draft year, but could be a first-round pick in the 2018 draft. So smart and aware on the ice, excellent sense of play development, and then he has the skating and hand skills to take full advantage of what he sees happening around him. His ability to put himself in the places where the play will go is uncanny, and then he can finish when the play finally catches up to what he has already seen. Fun to watch, an early candidate for a top-five pick in 2019. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018

In overtime, absolutely destroys an opponent with a move a center ice, brings the puck into the offensive zone, feeds Pitlick in the high slot who then wrists a shot, saved, but Mittlestadt, continuing to the net snaps the rebound home for the game-winning goal. Remarkable, fantastic shift. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Stream 1/27/2018

Andrei Svechnikov Note Forcing passes like he's trying way too hard instead of just feeling the play. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Love his 200-foot play. He works just as hard on defense as he does in the offensive zone, and he's a turnover threat in the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Great sequence, receives an awkward pass with soft hands and stick adjustment, then burns down the right wing shorthanded, pulls up and wrists a dangerous shot. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018

Filip Zadina Note Disguises his release point so well. I've watched his goal several times, and I always think that he's going top right corner, but he goes low left instead. Just amazing release. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018

Alexander Alexeyev Note Defensive-zone awareness is excellent Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Alexander Alexeyev Summary Skating is a strong point, but his smarts and offensive vision stand out in his game. High hockey iq and ability to rapidly assess game situations and make the right decisions, and his feet allow him to get the right spot on the ice to make the smart play. Quality two-defender with offensive upside. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018

Brayden Burke Note Gets a goal by driving to the front of the net and Peckford finds him from the boards. If Burke skated like that all over the ice, he'd be a much better player. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Brayden Burke Note His game in one sequence: puck on his stick in the offensive zone, shows fancy footwork and puck handling to work around a defender, pulls up, forces a backhand pass to the low boards, intercepted, easy zone clearance for the opposition. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Brayden Burke Summary There's no doubt about his offensive play--his hands are excellent, he gets his shot of quickly with power and good accuracy whether it’s a wrist shot, slapshot or one-timers. His passes are accurate when he picks out the right play. On the down side, he forces the play too often, making high-risk choices and at times just giving up the puck when he runs out of skating room. Shows little effort on defense or away from the puck. Vision is great, awareness is not, and his lack of competitive effort is a major concern. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Chris Douglas Note Top penalty kill unit play, which isn't surprising considering how dogged he has been as a defender. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Chris Douglas Note Hard work at the blue line creates a turnover, then he goes to the net and is rewarded by a perfect pass that he puts into the back of the net for a tying goal in the second period. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Chris Douglas Note Generates speed, but it takes him a few strides to get to pace Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Chris Douglas Summary Hard worker, reliable defensive forward who kills penalties and makes an impact at both ends of the ice. Good top-end speed but lacks burst that he'll need at higher levels in order to effective with his style of play. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018

Dawson Barteaux Note Surprisingly good speed. Doesn't look fast but then he's winning all the puck chases. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Dawson Barteaux Note Gets a loose puck and has a winger with a wide-open shot, but flubs the pass and puts it behind the winger and an open net goes untested. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Dawson Barteaux Summary Defensive blueliner with above average skating ability and good positioning and presence in his own end. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018

Jett Woo Note Offensive zone faceoff won, puck to the middle, and Woo takes two steps up from the blue line and snaps a shot on net. I like his quickness and body angle to get a good, powerful shot off Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Jett Woo Note Skating is very good, mobility excellent with the puck or when trying to gain position. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Jett Woo Note Love his skating and multidirectional agility Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Jett Woo Summary Excellent skater with a solid build at 6'0, 205, though he doesn't look stocky (may be taller than the listed height). Reads the play well, showing good awareness positioning at both ends of the ice. Physical play in the game was limited primarily to solid body positioning, but he does not shy away from contact. Looks confident and calm in all situations and shows good iq and awareness at both ends. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Justin Almeida Note Centering a line with Burke on the right wing and Peckford on the left Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018

Luka Burzan Note Great skating in small spaces. Excellent turns and edges. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Luka Burzan Note Feeds a pass to the point, but instead of stopping and setting, he turned his back to spin around for position. Unfortunately, that took an option for a return pass away from the point man, and the penalty killer was able to disrupt play. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Luka Burzan Summary Shows tremendous speed in open ice, but is equally as impressive in confined spaces, using his balance and edgework to remain mobile in traffic. Works hard in all three zones, good playmaker who tends to make accurate choices. Not a physical player, but takes a hit to make a play when necessary. Room for improvement in overall game awareness, though his hockey sense is generally okay. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Baker Shore Note Left half-boards/circle on the top powerplay unit Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018

Baker Shore Note Works the puck well and has good awareness, finds the right pass most of the time Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Baker Shore Summary Hard worker, good hands and vision, quick skater who needs to work on his stride to get more power, but that looks correctable. Has confidence in the offensive zone, but doesn't seem to have a top-level skills package beyond that. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018

Graham Lillibridge Note Not focusing on him in this game, but his skating has been popping out in the game. Great wheels on this kid, a '99 Yale commit. Small, though, listed at 5'9 and 155 pounds Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Jack Hughes Note Flashes brilliant maneuverability and harassing defensive play. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018

Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018

K'Andre Miller Summary He has the size and some offensive skills, but otherwise left a lot to be desired in this game. His decision making in this game was poor, he was on the wrong side of the puck too many times, and his balance was below average, falling to the ice several times without help. I've not seen him look this bad before, so will make an effort to focus on him in a few more games this year to make sure this wasn't just a horrifically off night. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Makes a horrible choice to go to the puck carrier on the opposite side of the ice, disregarding the actual play evolving around him, and gives up a 3-on-1 attack and the first goal of the game. What was he thinking? Two steps back instead of six steps across and that attack is disrupted. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018

K'Andre Miller Note Big and willing to take punishment to help get the puck out of the zone. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
K'Andre Miller Note If I had to fully evaluate Miller based on just this game, I'd call him a project player with size and some offensive ability, but a marginal prospect at best. I've seen better from him before. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018

Oliver Wahlstrom Note Finds a loose puck at the crease and wrists it home Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Oliver Wahlstrom Summary Wahlstrom is always on the attack. Good, not great skater, shoots hard with accuracy but it is the constancy of his offensive game that stands out. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Distinct lack of quickness and speed. Sluggish feet, wide knees, no power. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Might not be able to go fast, but he is agile with his hands and feet when he's in the offensive zone. Deft stickwork with fast, soft hands Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Really labors when he tries to skate anywhere. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018

Robert Mastrosimone Summary Gets rid of the puck in a hurry with soft, fast hands and an accurate shot. Average everywhere else, and needs a lot of work on his skating. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Alexander Nylander Note Nylander is much less dangerous from the point, where his greatest attribute--his amazingly quick hands--is much less important Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Carter Hart Note Fantastic first period, his positioning and angles have been sharp, his rebound control even better, and he's seeing the game better than maybe anyone else on the ice right now. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Elias Pettersson Note Petterssen's ability to slide the angle of his stick and completely change his release point is superb. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Erik Brannstrom Note If not for Dahlin, Brannstrom would be getting a lot more talk. Love the intelligence of his game. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Erik Brannstrom Note Solid play to stop the puck, wait for the charging forward to go past him, then make a pass for a clean breakout. Poise under pressure. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Maxime Comtois Note Excellent pass through traffic, slides it under a defender and finds his rush-mate, but the play fizzled out. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Maxime Comtois Note Heavy hit from Comtois who continues to use his body as a battering ram Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Rasmus Dahlin Note Note really sure what else can be said, he just has so many elite-level tools and uses all of them appropriately. Just a stellar hockey player. He should already be in the NHL. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Filip Zadina Note Second-unit penalty kill on the 5-min major Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Filip Zadina Note So good at making himself available in the offensive zone, moving into the open spaces and keeping foot positioning to be ready for the puck. When he does get it, he's ready to react with shot, pass or control. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Filip Zadina Note I like his willingness to mix it up in the corners and at the net, skilled players getting their hands dirty make me happy. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Filip Zadina Note Zapp! When the puck gets close to him at the low circle, there's a slight whiff of ozone as the puck hits the net. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Filip Zadina Summary Elite-level offensive skills and excellent hockey sense and on-ice awareness combined with the willingness to always let his feet take him to the right spot on the ice, regardless of the battering he might take by going there. Zadina is a disruptive player that is a threat to make something good happen at all times, and he continues to show why he should be the top consideration for third overall in the 2018 draft. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Ivan Drozdov Note Above-average skating on his edges and balance, but twice on this powerplay shift he has mishandled pucks that came to his stick and lost scoring chances because of it. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Jakub Lauko Note Skating is underwhelming Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017

Vladislav Ryadchenko Note Throws a good hip check Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Vladislav Ryadchenko Summary An excellent, near-elite level skater who is constantly on the move. Unfortunately, at this time his hands don't seem to match the skills in his feet, and skating can only take a player so far. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Vojtech Budik Note Penalty kill unit to kill a 5-min major early in the game Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017

Andrei Altybarmakyan Note Like his balance and leg strength a lot Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Andrei Altybarmakyan Summary Not a big player at 5'11, 183 pounds, but he shows a high-work-rate effort at all times, strong and balanced, but his offensive skills are a bit wanting and will likely govern his ultimate level of play. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017

Andrei Svechnikov Note Generates so much effortless power from his skates. Does he realize he's on ice? Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Constantly pushing play, highly active shift yet again. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Summary Simply an excellent player who takes advantage of every small opportunity presented to him on the ice. In a tournament where his ice time was limited by coaching who decided to play older players more often and having just recently returned to the ice after missing 6 weeks or so with a broken hand, Svechnikov still managed a point-per-game production and looked consistently threatening on every shift. Size, quickness, strength and lethal offensive skills. (General summary of all tournament viewings). Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Dmitri Sokolov Note Not much burst from a standstill, takes several choppy strides to get to speed Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Dmitri Sokolov Note Floating in his own end, more watching than watchful, and when the puck comes to his zone he misses his responsibility and allows a prime chance against. Sloppy play there. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Klim Kostin Note Finally starting to look like he's back to form and finding a steady rhythm after having missed all of that time with the injury in his draft year. Seems more like the player I remember from two years ago. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Maxim Sushko Note Carries the puck with speed through the neutral zone, but looses the puck off his stick and blows a tire trying to recover. Unforced error. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Maxim Sushko Note Left top of the circle, gets the puck, delays while the defender slides past him, then changes the angle slightly and rips a dangerous shot. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Viktor Bovbel Note Leading the powerplay unit, the puck goes through him and he's directing play Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Viktor Bovbel Note Soft pass back to the top of the umbrella nearly gets picked off for a shorthanded break. That pass needs to be sharper or not made at all. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017

Jesper Boqvist Note Highly maneuverable, showing really nice edgework and lateral quickness Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017

Oskar Steen Note So fast and smooth on his skates. Flies down the ice. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017
Oskar Steen Note Uses his feet to change direction along the boards, forces a tripping call. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017
Radovan Pavlik Note Highly active in the offensive zone, making himself available for passes and moving quickly without the puck. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017

Drake Batherson Note Certainly not the pretty skater, looks all knees and elbows Brian Fogarty Canada vs Slovakia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017
Erik Smolka Note PK duty, edgework looks like it needs polishing. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Slovakia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017
Erik Smolka Note Active stick breaks up a cross-ice pass while on the penalty kill, but he ends up trying to cover three players while his unit mates watch. Goal against. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Slovakia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017
Jordan Kyrou Note What magic in his hands to absolutely undress the exhausted Smolka and snap a clean wrist shot for the Canada goal. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Slovakia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017

Aleksi Heponiemi Note Grabs a horrible decision from Clague behind his own net, and nearly gets his second goal of the game, but he couldn't quite get the handle at the doorstep. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017
Boris Katchouk Note Using his feet and hands to protect the puck and get a clean zone entry. He's having an excellent game. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017

Eeli Tolvanen Note Finally get a good look at Tolvanen's shot in this game, and it puts Clague to the ice and then limping to the bench. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017
Eeli Tolvanen Note Continues to have issues creating his own space, which limits his opportunities on the small ice. Love his play when he has the room, but I continue to be concerned that he is a big-ice player. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017
Eeli Tolvanen Note Gets his shot off so quickly, it always seems surprising the way it jumps off his stick Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017

Martin Necas Note Leads yet another assault into the Russian zone. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017
Martin Necas Note Huge defensive-zone draw to end the game and snuff out the Russian comeback. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017
Martin Necas Summary Necas's game continues to improve in all aspects. His on-ice development has been excellent, but the one thing that hasn't really improved at all has been his already remarkable leadership and work ethic. Necas has always been a player that spurs his team on with his nonstop effort and now that the rest of his game--skating, immediate change of direction, shot and passing--have caught up to his iq and natural leadership, he has become as close to an NHL certainty as prospects can get. Excellent and admirable hockey player. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017

Jacob Schmidt-Svejstrup Note Blocks a pass in his own end and then receives a quick pass and gets out on a breakaway. One quick move to his forehand then wrists it home top right corner. Good illustration of his game there: responsible D, good read of the play, nice hands to finish. Brian Fogarty Fargo vs USNTDP (USHL) Video (With Replay) 12/1/2017
Jacob Schmidt-Svejstrup Summary Hard working player with size and agility, has quick hands in tight but looks a bit tentative at times to release his shot from distance. Plays a two-way game and is effective at both ends of the ice, but he could use some power skating work to improve his straight-line speed and acceleration. Not an explosive player, but a workhorse who won't hurt his team regardless of the role he's put in. Can kill penalties or work the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Fargo vs USNTDP (USHL) Video (With Replay) 12/1/2017
K'Andre Miller Note Tries to carry the puck into the offensive zone, losses the handle and the puck rolls into the corner Brian Fogarty Fargo vs USNTDP (USHL) Video (With Replay) 12/1/2017

Casey Gilling Note Shifty player, changes directions quickly, leaving defenders groping for position. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Casey Gilling Summary Small player, good in the corners, quick hands, but doesn't seem to have any above average skills beyond that. Straight-line skating needs work, did not see anything interesting regarding playmaking or offensive skills in general. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Dawson Dipietro Note Small, active player in his own end. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Dawson Dipietro Note Smooth on his feet, quick stride, uses his skate to tap a puck back onto his stick in traffic, draws a penalty. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Hugh McGing Note Hard work in front of his own net, keeps his stick in the passing lane and makes a nice interception Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017

Karch Bachman Note Stupid penalty on the powerplay, completely unnecessary interference penalty in the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Karch Bachman Note Shot is hard and consistently on net. Gets a lot of power behind his wrist shot without much winding into it, Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Karch Bachman Note Quicker than I expect him to be. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Karch Bachman Summary Quick skater, hard shot that can be dangerous for its pace more than pinpoint accuracy. Solid player that could improve enough for a bottom six role in the NHL if everything comes together for him. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Louis Belpedio Note Gets another chance with only a couple of seconds left the period, wrists it just wide. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Louis Belpedio Note Decisive when the puck is on his stick. Quick, smart passes. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Louis Belpedio Summary Likes the puck on his stick and for good reason. He can make things happen with his shot and passing, but the rest of his game is lagging at this point in his development. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Louis Belpedio Note A bit clunky on his pivot there. Could have been situational, but not a pleasing transition. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017

Wade Allison Note Again at the top of the crease, but when the puck goes behind the net, he pushes out to the mid-slot area, gets a pass, fires a shot top left corner that barely misses. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017

Wade Allison Summary Big, power forward type who plays his best game in front of the net. Defensively, he looks like a guy who just wants to go back up ice. Hands are excellent in tight, scores his goals from the dirty, high-danger areas, but not really a threat at distance. His game is all five feet in front of the net. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Note Pitchforks a backhand pass, on target but effortful to make the play. Looks a lot smoother on is forehand. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017

Wade Allison Note Good hand-eye coordination to find a bouncing puck in the crease and tap it into the net. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017

Wade Allison Note Diving attempt to disrupt a potential breakaway, surprised even the Broncos broadcast team. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017

Aapeli Rasanen Summary Had moments of skill, a bit of physicality, but was also invisible for a lot of the game. Decent wheels, but nothing in his game stood out to me. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017

Brady Tkachuk Note Gets another chance at a shorthanded breakaway, and this time he leaves the deke out of the equation and just fires a wrist shot up over Woll's glove. Also liked his speed there, pulling away from three BC players who were trying to chase him down. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Looked like his older brother there, muscling his way to the front of the net, imposing his will with one hand on his stick while defenders are tugging on his arm, pulling at his waist, grabbing at anything they can, yet Brady still manages to one-hand the puck into the goaltender's skates, and eventually Tkachuk earns the assist and the rebound is slammed home. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Brady Tkachuk Summary Big, aggressive, intense, with a good skills package. Above average speed, but nothing spectacular in his skating. Just so strong on and off the puck and like his brother Matt, he knows how to use his tools. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Chad Krys Note Calm skater, never looks harried, but always on the move. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017

Chad Krys Summary He has the skating, a shot, passing ability and a lot of calmness in his game. Decisions could be a bit better at times, but looked effective at both ends. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Chad Krys Note Playing left point on the powerplay with Fabbro on the opposite point Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017

Logan Hutsko Summary Ultrahigh compete level, always working, always going at full tilt. Maybe not the most talented player, but he has solid acceleration and a hard if not especially dangerous shot. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Luke McInnis Summary A bit heavy-footed which limits his effectiveness at this point. Will drift in from the point on set plays, but just didn't see much from him in this game. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Shane Bowers Note Always active and trying to make something happen: taking shots, breaking up passes, finding open players, getting to the crease. Gets awarded for his effort with a tip-in goal. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Shane Bowers Note Clean faceoff win Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017

Shane Bowers Note Kid just keeps getting to every puck first. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Shane Bowers Summary If he had 10% more skill, he'd be a superstar.

Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017

Cam Morrison Note Takes an interference penalty off of an offensive zone faceoff. Not a smart play. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017

Casey Mittelstadt Summary Excellent hands and vision, and a quality skater who changes speed to throw defenders off of their angles. Seems passive at times, however, and needs to play at a higher pace more often. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Jake Evans Note Great, soft pass from behind the net to find Burke for an easy one-touch goal. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017

Scott Reedy Note Fends off two defenders in the corner, keeps possession, works free and finds a teammate in the slot. Love that kind of hard work. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Scott Reedy Summary Very good acceleration, but lacks great top-end speed and little offensive spark. Above-average possession skills, using his size and hand skills in the corners to fend off opponents. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Andrew Oglevie Note First game back after an injury Brian Fogarty Notre Dame vs Penn State (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/10/2017
Andrew Oglevie Note Took a lazy stride that allowed his man to get a few steps in front him, and once Oglevie realized it, he tried hard to close on him but lacked the pace, and his man scored an easy one-touch goal. Brian Fogarty Notre Dame vs Penn State (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/10/2017
Brandon Biro Note Looks like the quickest player on the ice Brian Fogarty Notre Dame vs Penn State (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/10/2017

Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Turns the corner with the puck wide, tucks back in, causes all kinds of trouble at the net. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Summary The patience, skating and two-way mentality all point to a player who can make an impact at the NHL level. Once he puts everything together, could become a high-impact player and a top-15 pick. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Good burst to get up into the neutral zone on a back check, takes the angle, and shoulders the puck carrier into the boards. Nice Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Kid can skate. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Positioned well in the defensive zone, deflected puck falls to his feet, and instead of doing anything risky, just kicks the puck out of his d-zone. I love that play from him. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Took a big hit to make a smart pass, tucking the puck around the defender and just leave the puck in the path of Lavoie, Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017

Filip Zadina Note Top powerplay unit with Lavoie and Fortier to start the second period. This group looks dangerous. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Also getting penalty kill duty, and based on about thirty seconds of that shift, he could easily be an NHL PK specialist if all else fails. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note His game is incredibly smooth: passing, skating, up and down the ice. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Summary High-quality player with an excellent assortment of tools, the kind of player that could be a top-five draft pick for 2018. On this first viewing, I'm not ready to call any one attribute elite, but there are not a lot of players his age that are excellent at every aspect of the game. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Nathaniel Doyon Note Physical, throwing forecheck hits all over the place. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017

Nikita Alexandrov Note Tries to slap a bouncing puck back at the net, but couldn't connect. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Nikita Alexandrov Note Intense player, goes hard and plays much bigger than he looks. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Nikita Alexandrov Summary Born one day too late for the 2018 draft, Alexandrov will get an extra year to develop. His current game lacks offensive flair, but he is nonstop energy and his physical play is a threat. Aggressive forechecker and player who will do anything to get the puck back for his team. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Long, powerful strides with good form. Really can move well down the ice. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017

Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Uses his length well to keep attackers away from the loose puck and reach out to coral it himself. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note At his blue line, pushing the puck up ice, had a choice of two passes, but took the one that looked riskier to me. He tried to find Alexandrov instead of the safer option. I understand why, but sometimes it is better to certain. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Long-shift, but he really struggled to get back deep and keep an icing call intact. Nearly got beat out by two Halifax players. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Over-commits to the puck carrier at the circle and leaves a huge opening at the crease. Easy goal for the opposition. Only an early-shift offsides (reviewed) prevented the goal against from hitting the scoreboard. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Attacks a puck at the red line while on the penalty kill, risky but well-played. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Summary Good passer, good skater, risk taker. Needs desperately to add some weight (currently listed as 6'2, 161 pounds) and to cut down on some of the riskier aspects of his game, but he shows good offensive awareness and stick skills. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Takes a nifty pass from Zadina in the high slot, dips to his left, and beats the netminder clearly far-side corner. Soft hands and heady shot selection. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note He needs some work on his pivots forwards to backward, there's a bit of a hop-and-turn instead of smooth conversion. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Slick hands, deking through traffic, curls behind the net and finds Bishop in the circle for a one-timer goal. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Summary The 2019-draft-eligible forward showed good hands, edgework and finishing ability. Great size at 6'3 and still has plenty of time to add to his 176 pounds. Still some polishing to do on some of the rougher edges of his game, but Lavoie is a player to monitor. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Good knee bend in his stride, a little clunky on the pivot on his first shift Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Digging hard on the backcheck. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Like his edgework on the powerplay, constant movement, keeping his body to the puck, finding space. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Nice hands to pull the puck close then try to chip a pass out of his defensive zone, but I'd rather have seen him actually make a safer play there. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Anders Bjork Note Buzzing early, showing off his quickness and ability to jump into open spaces. Working hard off the puck in the offensive zone, gets free to receive a pass and fires a quick wrist shot. 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 choice, 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
Nolan Patrick Note Very quiet so far in the first 15 minutes of the game. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017

Nolan Patrick Summary The skills are apparent when he has the puck, but he's just not ready for the NHL yet. The year lost to injuries in 2016-2017 juniors needs to be regained this season, but he should be ready for 2018-2019 Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Oscar Lindblom Note Not fast, really, but smooth quickness and so well balanced on his skates, helps him tremendously in front of the net and in the corners where he will be most effective. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Oscar Lindblom Note Needs to get some hustle, showing no jump in this game so far, at all. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Oscar Lindblom Note That was a nice shift in the defensive zone, active stick, quick feet, poised aggressive defense, then a quick transition up the ice after the turnover. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Oscar Lindblom Summary Lindblom is a very good hockey player with strong skates and balance and who knows how to convert and extend plays low in the offensive zone. He is not a player who will beat defenders one-on-one, but he will torture them once in the zone by just making plays happen. Needs to pick up the pace a bit, but made good in-game adjustments in this contest that helps my opinion of his play. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Note Soft pass through the neutral zone in transition, hits the headman in stride for a simple offensive-zone entry Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Note Gets up into the offensive play and gets a good, low shot on net that Rask fought off. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Note Another time up ice, this time flying up to join the rush, zips a nice wrist shot that beats Rask this time. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Note So aggressive trying to move up ice all the time without the puck. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Note Good display of gap control and stickwork to win a one-on-one play against the boards. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Summary Offensive defender whose defensive game needs some improvement, but is NHL caliber already. His skating is improved and his non-stop intent to get involved in the offensive play is both fun to watch and dangerous at the same time. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Zachary Senyshyn Note Hard wrist shot from the top of the left circle, but not challenging for the netminder. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Zachary Senyshyn Summary Still seeing some of the issues I've seen from him in the past, namely that when he has the puck or has a chance of getting the puck, he shows effort and skills that could make him a quality NHLer, but without the puck, he drifts and loses energy and focus. If he can pull that around and play with similar work rates at both ends of the ice, he could be a solid middle-six forward in the NHL. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Kerby Rychel Note Skating is improved, but could still be better in a straight line. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Logan Brown Note Snaps a wrist shot from the dot and beats Andersen easily. Sweet release after a good play to create the initial turnover and begin the sequence. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Logan Brown Note Another nice play, this team swooping into the offensive zone from the blue line to collect a loose puck and get it quickly on net. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Logan Brown Note Moves so well for such a huge player. Playing sound defense tonight, as well. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Logan Brown Summary Much improved in his quickness and confidence, and he looks like he could be ready to play in the NHL. He skates incredibly well for his size, with balance and smooth movements. Good instincts and hustle, too. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Max Reinhart Note Compact® stride, good speed and balance Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Max Reinhart Note Good work in a corner scrum, holds off the opponent until he gets the puck free from feet, then makes a sharp pass to a teammate for a chance. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Max Reinhart Summary Can skate the NHL game, can hustle the NHL game, but I'm not convinced he can think the NHL game. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Kasperi Kapanen Note Puck handling is solid at speed and he makes difficult cuts look easy while maintaining possession Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Kasperi Kapanen Note Darts in and out of the middle, but I would like to see him really dig in every now and then and claim his position on the ice. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Logan Stanley Summary Still a lot of doubt about whether or not he has the feet to be an NHL defender. Size and physicality to do the job, but it is still unclear if he has the overall hockey iq to make up for his poor footwork Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Pius Suter Note Getting PK time, smooth and agile skater, but tentative in this game. He's active, though, and engaged. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Pius Suter Note Like his quickness and acceleration Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Pius Suter Summary Suter has a lot of tools including excellent acceleration, agility, and hockey iq, but he looks like a player better suited to the bigger European ice than the tighter confines of North American rinks. Willing to take a bump, but doesn't seem eager to get into the fray. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Thomas Chabot Note Aggressive pinch to get to a loose puck, good quick burst, decisive and most importantly, it was the right choice Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Thomas Chabot Note Nice rush up ice, maneuvers in deep Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Thomas Chabot Note Patient with the puck in traffic, sees the whole ice really well, and no apprehension in his game at all Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Thomas Chabot Summary Chabot is blossoming into an absolute stud defender, and looks like a future top-pair perineal all-star Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Timothy Liljegren Note Fun to watch him skate, and his gambling passes pay off, they are beauties. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Like his game a lot: size, effort, physicality. Not as skillful as his older brother, maybe, but his intensity is immeasurable. Not a face-puncher, just a dominant force. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note On defense it's constant pursuit for him, often at the expense of positioning, but his compete level is off the charts. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cale Makar Note Looks even faster that in the spring, if that's possible Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cale Makar Note Holds off an eager Gettinger by using body position. Excellent puck protection Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cale Makar Note Loses the puck in his skates and Tufte takes it away. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
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
Jake Bean Note Active stick, but still needs to close up gaps a bit more quickly and more decisively Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Jake Bean Note Good defense against a charging Wahlstrom, turns him to the outside then pokes the puck away. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Jake Bean Note Skilled skater does the little things incredibly well Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
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
Jake Bean Note Great poke check on the PK Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Logan Cockerill Note Plays at full speed every shift Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Logan Stanley Note Can't handle Dhooge's quickness. Still looks lumbersome. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Logan Stanley Note Lack of mobility allows Gettinger to get to a loose puck and sneak a shot down the goal line and into the net. You can't allow that in the NHL. Or the AHL for that matter. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Mikey Anderson Note Good, deep knee bend, but could improve his extensions Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Mikey Anderson Note Seems like his reach is 30 feet long, his active stick is really effective Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Mikey Anderson Note Misses a one-timer wide Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Mikey Anderson Note Excellent awareness in all three zones Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Mikey Anderson Summary Raw player who has a nice skillset for an NHL defenseman, but he needs a good couple of years to polish up his overall game. He shows smarts, good quickness, and a lot of positional awareness. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Oliver Wahlstrom Note Wahlstrom, as a 2018, will be interesting to watch this year. Fast, exuberant, raw. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
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 lethargy. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
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
Brady Tkachuk Note Play-disrupting machine down low, smashing his way to the net Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Nice one-touch pass, but Mikey Anderson was caught off guard and scuffed it. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017

Jacob Moverare Note Doesn't look totally comfortable skating the puck up ice, but he is a decent puck handler Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Jesper Sellegren Note Gives Brady Tkachuk too much space at the crease, and Tkachuk makes him pay by deflecting a point-shot attempt into the net for a powerplay goal. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Lias Andersson Note Winning a lot of offensive zone faceoffs Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Lias Andersson Note Such a smart, possession-based player. So calm with the puck, knows how to protect it and willing to wait as long as it takes for the right play to open up. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Lias Andersson Note Saved a wraparound attempt from Tkachuk after Sweden's netminder was caught out of position Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Rasmus Dahlin Note US players hitting Dahlin early and often Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Rasmus Dahlin Note Tries to start a breakout with a pass that nearly got his forward destroyed. Not the first bad pass I've seen from Dahlin in this game. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Rasmus Dahlin Note Good shoulder check, nice physicality and he's absorbing the continual US attacks against him Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017

Rasmus Dahlin Note Reads the defensive zone play perfectly and just intercepts a pass in stride as if it was intended for him in the first place. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
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
Rasmus Dahlin Note Stickhandles through Jason Robertson's legs and steps around him, Sick move in his own end! Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Riley Tufte Note Unwise interference takes away a full minute of a US two-man advantage. Needs to be more aware and controlled there. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Riley Tufte Note Big, solid forward with good feet, but he's stronger than he is fast Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Riley Tufte Note Could have been called for another interference penalty there. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Riley Tufte Note Tufte is a freight train at speed. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
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
Timothy Liljegren Note Decisive from the point on the powerplay, firing low shots on goal that are problematic for the US netminder Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Timothy Liljegren Note What an ill-advised pass from his own corner right to the slot, where only a misplay by the US forward prevented a goal against. That was ugly. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Timothy Liljegren Note Excellent defensive coverage to tie up his man and then strip the puck away from him. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017

German Poddubnyi Note Good balance and agility, but average straight-line speed at best Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
German Poddubnyi Summary Buzzes both zones, goes to the net and the dirty areas of the ice with effectiveness. Not a lot of skill on display, and his speed is below average despite showing good edgework and balance. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Ivan Lodnia Note Incredibly wide skating stride. So much wasted movement Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Ivan Lodnia Note Loses so much skating power because he doesn't bring his feet back under his body. It's a shame, because he shows decent quickness Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Ivan Lodnia Summary Not a lot to see in this game. Lodnia has some skill, but his skating must improve if he is going to have a successful future. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Jacob Moverare Note Nice gap control and a quick poke check easily breaks up an attack Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Michael McLeod Note If McLeod had any offensive creativity he'd be a highly dangerous player. His hands are decent and his skating is superb Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Michael McLeod Note So effective on the penalty kill because of his feet. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
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 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

Owen Tippett Note Pretty good skating backwards, though he doesn't play much defense so it's not displayed often Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Owen Tippett Summary Solid offensive skills and above average speed, but his effort was questionable in this game despite the fact that it was game five of the OHL Finals. With a one-goal lead, he looked like he still wanted to cherry-pick out of the neutral zone Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Shaw Boomhower Note Good effort on the backcheck, but his strides are short and choppy, limiting his drive Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017

Shaw Boomhower Note Floating a bit at the defensive blue line instead of cutting down to protect the top of the slot. Raddysh then ties the game with Boomhower trying to get down to him Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
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
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
Brady Tkachuk Note A mountain at the top of the crease on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017

Grant Mismash Note Every time I see him, the skills are there, but he just lacks the ability to put all of the pieces together. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
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
Joni Ikonen Note Calm with the puck on the powerplay. Measured, head up, great reads. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017

Joni Ikonen Note Pull up stop behind the net, shakes the D for a half-second and he finds Vesalainen in front of the net. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Joni Ikonen Note Love it when guys skate like they don't have to think about it at all, like they have a symbiotic relationship with the ice. Ikonen has that quality. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Joni Ikonen Note Opening faceoff of the second period, jumps the circle and draws a trip from Tkachuk Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Joni Ikonen Note Has a deceptively good wrist shot. Forces saves from every angle. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Joni Ikonen Note Put himself in trouble on the half-boards and lost the puck. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017

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

Ryan Poehling Note Perfect positioning on the penalty kill, intercepts a slot pass and sends it down the ice. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017

Santeri Virtanen Note High vision and easily received pass through the neutral zone, allows a simple offensive zone entry. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Sean Dhooge Note If only he were 5'9. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Urho Vaakanainen Note Good use of his body to protect the puck below the goal line. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Urho Vaakanainen Note Gave up possession at the offensive blue line when he didn't need to. Just lofted the puck behind the net to no one instead of holding for a better play. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Urho Vaakanainen Note Another suicide pass. Kid really needs to clean that up before he gets a teammate killed. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Urho Vaakanainen Note Decisions are better than his hands. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Urho Vaakanainen Note Vaakanainen is a one-way defenseman. He needs to stay at home where he can be effective. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Conor Timmins Note Patient, nice job finding the right target on the breakout and getting him a smooth, soft pass Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Conor Timmins Note Not thrilled with his skating, awkward upright and sluggish Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Conor Timmins Note Long legs, not very agile and has difficulty transitioning Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Conor Timmins Note Good stickhandling. Just pulled a bad pass out of his skates and moved it quickly to a teammate. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Conor Timmins Note Just not a good skater at all, mechanics are a mess. His passing is his key attribute. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
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
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
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
Morgan Frost Note Good awareness, a calm presence on the ice allows his vision to be effective. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Morgan Frost Note Just picked out a nice read and the pass to complete it despite heavy contact at the offensive blue line. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Morgan Frost Note Intermission interview: lots of clichés, unfortunately Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Morgan Frost Note Not a particularly crisp release on that top-circle shot, more like he was trying to make a long pass Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Morgan Frost Note Shows good hockey sense and vision, not much panic in his game Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Morgan Frost Summary Good agility, good speed. Showed above-average vision and hands, especially in traffic. Good hands in close, but not a threat at distance. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Note Quick hands and good anticipation helps him widen passing lanes and distribute quickly Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Note Excellent release beats the goaltender short side Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Note Uses his body to create space, willing to take and give hits. Looks and plays bigger than his listing at 5'11, 185. Want to see his combine measurements Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Note I like that he's wearing an "A" in his draft year. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Note Always with great awareness and anticipation, then flashes quick hands to generate something from his keen positioning. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Note Like his compete level, diving to break up passes in his own end to protect a one-goal lead late in the game Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Summary Solid all-around player with a lot of tools, but his awareness and hockey iq seemed to set him apart in this game. Solid skating base, with quickness, speed and agility. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Otto Makinen Note Average speed, okay positioning, but lacks a strong first step Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Otto Makinen Summary Nothing stood out in this game, either good or bad. At this point, he appears to be an average OHL player with some potential upside if he can refine various aspects of his game. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Leads a 2-on-1, and when his shot goes just wide and the opponents recover the puck, he is the first person back in the defensive zone. In a game with a lot of top 2017 prospects, Svechnikov is the most dangerous and best player on the ice, period. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Would be the top pick in 2017 if he was a year older Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Gets a breakaway in OT, with the speedy Farrance right on his heels. Doesn't score, but outskating Farrance with the puck is a testament to Svechnikov's abilities Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Ridiculously good on his feet Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Generates speed just from his edges. Strong on his skates, superbly balanced. Excellent skater. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Just destroyed Inamoto with a spin move off the half boards. I'm gasping every time he's on the ice. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Accurate with his one-timer, sets up on the right half-wall with his lefty shot Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Buzzing early and creating havoc Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
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
Casey Gilling Note Blazes to a loose puck, gets a clean breakaway and puts away a shorthanded goal Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
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
Grant Mismash Note Light on his feet, agile and quick in small spaces Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Grant Mismash Note First shooter for the USNTDP in the shootout, snaps a quick wrist shot past Petruzelli Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
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
Joshua Norris Note Soft hands in traffic Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Joshua Norris Note Good energy all over the ice, high compete level, not a ton of offensive creativity on display, though Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Tyler Inamoto Note Sublime opportunity in front of the net that Pettruzelli saved. Great work from Inamoto to get that low and time the attack. Nice shot. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Playing center on the second line Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Second-unit penalty killing center, moves his feet a lot, active player on the pk Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Highly confident skater, his feet just do whatever he needs them to do. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Play looks young, just a bit tentative at times Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note I like his puck protection instincts, and his ability to make a play under pressure. He's not afraid to take a hit to make something happen Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Good 50/50 effort to win a puck Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Kid can fly when necessary Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
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. His skating at 6'3 is a big plus attribute, as he looks fluid in all four directions with excellent speed. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
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
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
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
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 He's too good for this competition. Simple as that. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Super-active stick in the defensive zone, like all of the rest of the well-coached Halifax team 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 Junior hockey looks way too slow for him Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Rockets a shot from 70 feet that a spectacular glove save keeps out the net with a minute and a half left 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
Olivier Bourret Note Top powerplay unit duties on the right half-boards Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Olivier Bourret Note Battles hard for loose pucks Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Olivier Bourret Note Pass to hard to handle for his point partner on the powerplay, and a bit off-target, too Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Olivier Bourret Note Strong skater, good mechanics, gets low with full, powerful extensions Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Olivier Bourret Summary Young winger with promise. Solid on his skates with above average speed and balance, and offensive potential. A 2018 draft prospect who needs to continue to work hard to develop his skills Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Playing wing on Groulx's line. Not making much of an impact, but always engaged in the play and around the puck. A good sign for better things to come. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note His return foot never gets back in front of his body. Needs some work to tighten that up. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Straightline speed with the puck is admirable, keeps the puck well out in front and gets good, long strides. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Nice board pass to spring a forward into the neutral zone Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Summary As a 9/25/2000 birthdate, Lavoie is a 2019 draft prospect with good size at 6'3 177. Has only seen regular Halifax minutes over the last couple of months, but has 6 points in his last 14 games. Showed good speed, a solid hockey sense and ice awareness, but looks raw. At a draft-minus-2 player, however, he has a lot of time to improve and could be a top prospect going into his draft year. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
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 Note Consistently accurate passes on the outlet or powerplay. Makes his passes easy to receive 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
Ryan Hughes Note Called for non-penalty goaltender interference that disallows a goal. That was not interreference Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Ryan Hughes Note Great backchecking effort takes away a passing lane and creates transition the other way Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017

Tyler Popowich Note Slushy first step, needs to get a better initial dig and drive power Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Tyler Popowich Note That first step weakness allows the quick McKenzie to get around him, and Popowich gets called for a penalty trying to keep McKenzie from a scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Tyler Popowich Note Good speed when he gets going, just needs a better burst Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
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
Caleb Jones Note Starting to look more and more like his brother on the ice. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
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

Skyler McKenzie Note Brilliant and blazing backchecking to chase down a breakaway and poke the puck away at the crease. What effort! Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Skyler McKenzie Note His wrist shot doesn't look like much, but it’s really accurate and thus dangerous Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Ty Ronning Note Likes to work the slot, but he's getting outmuscled a lot, and as a result, even as Malm keeps finding him, Ronning keeps getting knocked off the puck Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Ty Ronning Note Gets a nice headman pass and holds of De Jong on a partial breakaway, roofs one backhand with De Jong trying to pull him down. This is the kind of play that Ronning can make. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Ty Ronning Note Plays the top of the umbrella on this powerplay shift, but he's not nearly as effective there. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Ty Ronning Note This time, Ronning is in the crease on the powerplay. He's better there, despite his small stature Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Ty Ronning Note Hasn't been overly effective in this game, but his presence in the crease and his work rate finds him at the right place late in the game, and he gets an assist on the tying goal for his efforts. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Ty Ronning Note Goes to the net and Malm finds him Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017

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
Ethan McIndoe Note Nice open-ice hit on the puck carrier breaks up a transition attempt Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Ethan McIndoe Note Consistently plants himself at the high slot area, but his line mates are not getting him the puck Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Ethan McIndoe Note Determined with the puck and I like his skating at his size Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Ethan McIndoe Note Unhappy with his effort in his own end late, down by three goals. I want him working at his hardest level right now, and he's not. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
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 Note Love the way the puck comes off his stick, both on shots and passes. Zero hesitation with the puck, no matter what situation he's in. 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 constant attack all over the ice. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Kole Lind Note Tries to dangle at the blue line and the puck is easily poked away by the defenseman Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Kole Lind Note Has a third gear when he really wants to get up ice, buts it has been 14 minutes into the game before he shows it off Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Kole Lind Note Does well to support the puck in all three zones Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Kole Lind Note Hands are not a quick as his mind wants them to be. He sees the play, but his stickhandling doesn't allow him to make it consistently Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Kole Lind Summary Good size, mobile, alert, works hard, but there is a lack of creativity and jump that concerned me in this game. Plays hard, but he looks more like a collection of good parts than a complete package. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Nolan Foote Note Strong stride covers a lot of distance Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Nolan Foote Summary Plays strong and at a good tempo, often looking imposing in the game despite being two years away from his draft year. Looks to be an impact player with his size and abilities. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Riley Woods Note Gets a big lean on his edges, with balance and quickness Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017

Riley Woods Note Receives a puck inside circle and snaps it five hole. Quick. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Ty Smith Note Wires a wrist shot far corner from range that the goalie could only wave at. A sniper's goal from the young defenseman. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
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
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. High-end vision and passing, a snappy release and highly accurate shot. He is a player to really watch over the next two months. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Jaret Anderson-Dolan Note Wicked backhand pass off the boards to the crease, with zip and accuracy Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017

Juuso Valimaki Note Nice 50/50 battle, leans into his opponent then uses his reach to reach out and poke the loose puck to a teammate Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Juuso Valimaki Summary Valimaki is a different player going forward than he is in his own end. When he has the puck, he has an above average first pass and starts breakouts with ease, but looks even more comfortable skating the puck up ice. On defense, his gaps and positioning are off, and looks really uncomfortable trying to read the play. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Juuso Valimaki Summary Valimaki is a project in his own zone, but with his size, skating and offensive awareness, he can become a good two-way defender in the NHL if he can clean up in the back end. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Kailer Yamamoto Note Nobody can put a body on him he has the puck, so he makes time and space for himself Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Kailer Yamamoto Note Superb first-step quickness and effortless skating. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Kailer Yamamoto Note Ducks under a check from Valimaki along the boards and finds an activating defender with a cross-crease pass. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
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. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Keegan Kolesar Summary High energy player with speed and quickness and a nasty edge. Goes hard all the time, and usually leaves some bruises in his wake. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Mathew Barzal Summary Fast, agile, always has his head up. He was far and away the most talented player on the ice, but he seemed uninspired and disinterested in the game. Disappointed in him this viewing. 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 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

Ty Smith Note Good hands to keep the puck in the offensive zone at the line Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Ty Smith Summary So young to be playing at the level that he is now. Quick with his hands, feet and decisions, and makes good plays look happenstance. There's a lot to like in Smith going forward, and his draft year will be fun to watch. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Alexander True Note Quick hands on the faceoff. He looks good at the little aspects of the game. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017

Mathew Barzal Note Cuts through the offensive zone with complete ease. Great on his feet. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017
Mathew Barzal Note Really quiet game. Down by five goals, I want to more energy from him Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017
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

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
Joe Sacco Note Playing bottom line minutes and hasn't seen much ice. Then suddenly a bounce finds him in front of the net and he pushes the puck wide left Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017

Kieffer Bellows Note Bends his back more than he knees. He needs to do a lot of power skating training. Choppy strides, not much extension Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017
Kieffer Bellows Note Bellows is a dump-and-chase coach's dream player. Not a big possession game, but he'll flick a puck into the corner and go hard after it Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017
Kieffer Bellows Note A diving, wraparound attempt after collecting his own rebound is the epitome of Bellows' game--not fancy or exciting, but full effort and desire, and the puck goes in off a defender's skate. Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017
Kieffer Bellows Summary Plays a simple game and does it well. Needs work on his skating, but the compete level and work rate are pro level Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017

Denis Guryanov Summary Physical, two-way player with quickness and hands, but a tendency 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

Mikhail Sergachev Note Tosses smaller players aside with ease, and most every other player on the ice is smaller Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Mikhail Sergachev Summary Incredibly strong on his skates and positionally sound, a combination that makes forwards hesitant to go near him on the ice. He is a granite 6'3 and 216 pounds and he is still only 18, with balance and leg strength that allows him to absorb big hits from big players and send the them to the ice. He also has excellent up-ice vision and shot. Sergachev will be in the NHL by the time he is 20. Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Philippe Myers Note Poor decision in his own zone leads to a clean 1-on-1 shot from the slot Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Philippe Myers Note Myers has size, can skate, good offensive skills, but he has made several questionable decisions in this game Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Philippe Myers Summary Myers is a big defender at 6'5, 207 pounds, and his skating is above average or better. There are aspects of his game at this point that make me less optimistic than many commentators after his play thus far in the WJCs and at Philadelphia's camp in the fall. His decisions were questionable in several instances in this game, and he was often out of position on the ice. This player could be sizzling now, but is it long-term heat?

Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Looks a step slower that the last time I watched him play in his draft year.

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
Thomas Chabot Note Flies down the left wing without the puck, gets a drop-pass from Jost, and then Chabot shows high-end edgework at speed and creates a wraparound chance that many forwards would be proud of Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016

Thomas Chabot Note Goes back to get a puck from the corner, gets crosschecked to his knees, digs for the puck, gets crosschecked to his stomach, still gets the puck out to a teammate Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
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 puck carrier 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 Keeps his knees bent with a solid base, even while waiting for the play to develop in front of him Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016

Yegor Rykov Note Good play to hold the point on the powerplay, then later on the same shift takes a big hit to again keep the puck in the zone Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2016
Yegor Rykov Note Starfish Defensive Posture ™ Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2016
Yegor Rykov Summary Smart in his own zone, with enough mobility to allow him to keep position on even speedy players, but he's not a fast guy. His straightline speed looks coachable, though. A first-pass breakout defender more than a transition player who is effective on the point for a powerplay. Kills penalties, manages the game in the defensive zone. A reliable middle-pair type. Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2016
Andrei Svechnikov Note Svechnikov has wheels. Quick feet, excellent edge work Zachary DeVine USA vs Russia (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/15/2016

Andrei Svechnikov Note Svechnikov takes a centering pass and off the rush gets it up on the USA goalie. Quick shot that got up with little space. Scored both goals for Russia in the loss. Heck of showing for the 2000-born winger. Zachary DeVine USA vs Russia (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/15/2016
Klim Kostin Note Kostin with a good centering pass with two USA defenders draped on him in the corner. Follows that play up with another good pass to the defender. Good vision on the plays. Zachary DeVine USA vs Russia (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/15/2016

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
Andrei Svechnikov Note Dirty area goal for Svechnikov as he gets an initial shot on goal, circles back to drive the net and gets a stick on it. Nose for the net on that play. Zachary DeVine Russia vs Switzerland (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/13/2016

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

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
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 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 Martin Note Active stick, but follows the puck and loses his man who then gets to the net for a goal. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016

Luke Martin Note Strong, full extensions on his push helps him generate quality speed Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Martin Summary Martin looks like a player that could develop nicely into a two-way defenseman at the NHL level. He plays smart offense, but many times was caught puck chasing in his own end. Needs a couple of years to develop more of the finer aspects of his game and remove some bad habits. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Martin Note Big one-time slapshot from the point, low to the ice and right on target. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016

Michael Pastujov Note Heavy feet Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Michael Pastujov Summary I've seen Pastujov play better than he did in this game. He made some good plays with his hands, but his legs looked tired and he did not seem fully integrated into the game. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Michael Pastujov Note Poor pass to try to clear his own zone, just a poorly executed bad idea. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Michael Pastujov Note Two smart passes on a shift, the first begins a breakout, the second deep in the offensive zone puts the puck on a teammate's stick in the high-danger area Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Michael Pastujov Note He'll get physical, but not a lot of hockey IQ on display in this game outside of the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016

Will Lockwood Note Really light on his feet, showing easy, fluid motion and a quick burst. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Will Lockwood Summary Michigan is not the best team, but Lockwood was the best player on the ice. Constant, aggressive play in all three zones, effective with and without the puck.

Will Lockwood Note Yet another offensive zone hit. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Martin Necas Summary Necas is a smaller, shifty player that is listed at under 150 pounds on EliteProspects.com but looks thicker than that, but not by much. His play against men in the top Czech league has been good in two viewings and shows a good nose for the puck. He isn’t afraid of attempting to put a hit on the opposition, but it usually isn’t that effective due to his lack of size. His skating is slightly above average but has good fluid transitions. More power could be used in his stride. His hands and vision both look very good and despite not seeing top six minutes, has generated at least two good looks for himself and his teammates in both games. Necas has physical limitations at this time, but smart play helps minimize their effects. He has been named to the preliminary WJC roster for the Czech Republic and it will be very interesting to see how he does against players of similar size and development.

Timo Meier Note Meier feeds Goldobin but the Russian heels it. Zachary DeVine Stockton at San Jose (AHL) Live 12/8/2016
Andrei Svechnikov Note Liking Svechnikov’s compete level overall. Working hard to retrieve pucks, could use some more physical presence on the boards, but at least he is in there going for the play. Zachary DeVine Russia vs Switzerland (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/3/2016

Robin Salo Summary Robin Salo has okay size and okay skating, but he’s playing his offhand in a men’s league and getting top pair minutes. Good reads in all three zones and comfortable with the puck on his stick coming out of the zone. First few steps are sluggish and his stride is short. In a 6-2 loss to Ilves, Salo had 6 shots, was 4th on the team in TOI with over 20 minutes and no points and finished the game only a -1 while the Lynx chewed up the lower defenders for four goals in the third period. Zachary DeVine Sport vs Ilves (Liiga) Stream 11/29/2016
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
Manuel Wiederer Note Wiederer playing with the Klima twins, playing an excellent two-way game covering for the offensive-minded brothers. Zachary DeVine Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Stream 11/27/2016
Manuel Wiederer Note Wiederer takes the pass at the red line, turns to center ice with a quick acceleration and draws the penalty. Then goes right back out as part of PP1 for the Wildcats. Zachary DeVine Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Stream 11/27/2016
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
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 Hischier jams in the puck from the left side of net. Knocks the puck down to the ice and quick hands to bat the puck in for his second of the game. Zachary DeVine Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Stream 11/27/2016
Nico Hischier Note Hischier with a great defensive play on Klima. Klima tries to throw in the brakes but Nico reads it and completely thwarts the play. Zachary DeVine Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Stream 11/27/2016
Otto Somppi Note Somppi’s motor continues to impress. His hands can’t seem to keep up with his on-ice vision, sees the play, gets to where he needs to be, but hands are a bit cold right now. Zachary DeVine Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Stream 11/27/2016
Otto Somppi Note Somppi’s a good net presence and not afraid of some extracurricular activities that come with being a net presence. Zachary DeVine Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Stream 11/27/2016
Timothy Liljegren Summary Liljegren is considered the top defender in the 2017 NHL entry draft and it is easy to see why. After a bout of mono to start the 2016-17 season, he has quickly come back for Rogle and been a steady, calm presence for one of the weaker teams in the SHL. Liljegren’s skating ability is excellent and fluid. Transitions and edge work are exemplary. Skating with the puck is impressive, carrying the play up ice with his head up and ready to make a play. He has a good shot overall, but can be prone to firing from deep on the blueline with little chance of effectiveness. Would like to see a bit more patience with shots from the point. However when considering he is a 17-year-old defender who is entering his second professional season with Rogle, and considering his position, Lilegren is one of the very top players and should be off the board quickly. Zachary DeVine Rogle vs Brynas (SHL) Stream 11/26/2016
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
Kale Clague Note Clague makes decisions so quickly with the puck on his stick. Impressive decisions to get the shot through or pass. Zachary DeVine Brandon vs Saskatoon (WHL) Stream 11/25/2016
Stelio Mattheos Note Mattheos twice in the first period just coasted a bit and waited for the puck when I thought he could have got in the scrum and influenced play. Zachary DeVine Brandon vs Saskatoon (WHL) Stream 11/25/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Vesalainen still no points but is not for lack of effort. Playing hard, going to the net, and chippy as well. Feel like the first point will open the flood gates. Zachary DeVine JYP vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/24/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Strong move down the wing at the net by Vesalainen, big defensive effort saves a goal Zachary DeVine JYP vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/24/2016
Urho Vaakanainen Note Vaakanainen transitions well from forward to backward. Edge work solid Zachary DeVine JYP vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/24/2016
Urho Vaakanainen Note Would like to see more authority on the passes from Vaakanainen. Plays are good, just want to see more zip on them. Zachary DeVine JYP vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/24/2016
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
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
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 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 Solid technique moving the puck up ice, one hand on the stick, puck well out in front of him, head up surveying the ice, power and speed though his whole body 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
Otto Somppi Note Good work to get back to his own blue line to chase down a puck, but instead of collecting the puck and gaining good possession, he just slapped a blind backhand back to center ice and straight to a Quebec attacker. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note I like his physicality and attention to defense. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note Another blind backhand pass, a habit he really needs to break Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note Somppi's energy is well-suited for the penalty kill, where he is good at hounding the points and half-boards Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Summary Somppi plays with gusto and seems constantly active when he is on the ice, but he lacks offensive creativity. He plays the body and will take the puck to the net, but he looks like the very definition of a north-south player. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note Draws a tripping penalty, but he wasn't moving his feet Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note Energetic, but looks a bit disconnected between his feet, hands and eyes. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note Good speed at the top end, but I haven't seen a lot of explosive acceleration. First couple of steps can seem sluggish Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Note Good stickwork to break up an opportunity for a Halifax defensive-zone exit Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 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

Louis-Philip Cote Note Cote paying the price in front of the net. Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016

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

Rudolfs Balcers Note Balcers floating in close to the net able to collect the pinballing puck and quickly get it to the empty net. Balcers has a knack for quiet but dangerous areas of the ice. Zachary DeVine Spokane vs Kamloops (WHL) Stream 11/23/2016

Casey Mittelstadt Summary The offensive skills are excellent, with a deceptive and startlingly quick release. His vision and leadership in the offensive zone are reflective of his ability to think the game at a high level. Not a blazing skater, but not deficient, and good ability to maintain speed at a glide. The one thing lacking in this game seemed to be an urgency to make things happen on every shift. Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
Casey Mittelstadt Note Constantly in motion in the defensive zone, but leads a breakout pass just a bit too much Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016

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 unnecessary 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
Mario Ferraro Note Takes the puck into the offensive zone as his line gets a change Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
Mario Ferraro Note Creates a turnover and leads a shorthanded 2-on-1. Good, smart hustle. Quick, not fast. Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
Mario Ferraro Note Always looking to jump into the rush Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
Mario Ferraro Summary Ferraro plays the game like a forward who is too often caught in his own end and trying to get back up to his wing position. Smart, with good quickness and poise on defense, but he'd rather be carrying the puck up ice, it seems. Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
Nolan Moyle Note Brings the puck into the offensive zone, but then just flips it at the net. Did nothing there to create. Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
Nolan Moyle Note Got destroyed by a stellar hipcheck just into the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
Nolan Moyle Summary Not much flare in his game, okay speed, plays a decent physical game. Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
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 goaltender for a hat-trick goal from distance Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
David Cotton Note Average skater, but long legs give his stride distance that helps make up for missing stride power Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
David Cotton Note Works hard at both ends of the ice, backchecks with determination and gets into defensive position before the play enters his D zone. Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
David Cotton Note Looks like he's struggling to understand how to use all of his size, not quite fully coordinated yet Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
David Cotton Summary Cotton is a player who is easily overlooked, but then makes a quality play. Plays a quiet game, but has good all-around skill set. Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
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
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
Max Zimmer Note Lacks urgency in his game in all zones Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Max Zimmer Note Good hands pulling a bad pass out of his skates Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Max Zimmer Note PK time in a game full of penalties Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Max Zimmer Note Seems like he's often in the right place, but not fully engaged in the game. Just a half-tick behind on everything Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Max Zimmer Summary Good player, but I saw nothing special from him. Moves well, but looks like a bottom-six player at best Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Ryan Fitzgerald Note Quick release with zip on a mid-distance wrist shot, kept it low through traffic Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Ryan Fitzgerald Note Dangles a defender while at speed, beats him cleanly and rips a shot on net, saved at the buzzer Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016

Ryan Fitzgerald Summary High-end puck skills allow him to stickhandle through traffic and a sharp release that him a dangerous shot from anywhere in the offensive zone.

Trent Frederic Note Big body, decent quickness 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 combination 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
Danny O’Regan Note O’Regan’s hard play draws a penalty. Not big but works the dirty areas well Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016

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
Mantas Armalis Note Armalis with two tough saves early. Lots of traffic for the big goalie to see around. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016
Mirco Mueller Note Mueller with a good read and chip up to the forward to clear the zone on the PK Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016

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

Anders Bjork Summary Best player on the ice for either team, and he dominated the game whenever he was on the ice. Great quickness and edgework, smart soft hands and excellent vision that allowed him to complete plays with ease. Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016
Anders Bjork Note Quick on his edges, good lean to gain leverage against the defender Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016

Anders Bjork Note Nice give and go, passes to the low man and goes to the crease, then snaps home the return pass, top shelf Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016
Andrew Peeke Note Poor choice behind his own net to try a backhand pass to the circle, and the resulting turnover ends up in the Notre Dame net. Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016
Andrew Peeke Note Tries to carry the puck into the offensive zone, makes the entry but loses the puck at the top of the circle Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016

Brinson Pasichnuk Note Inefficient skater, too upright, and poor leg extensions Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016
Brinson Pasichnuk Note Goes offside during a two-on-two chance shorthanded Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016
Brinson Pasichnuk Note Cannot handle Morrison in front of the net on the penalty kill, and goalie has to bail him out Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016
Brinson Pasichnuk Summary Hockey sense seems lacking and his skating needs work. He seems to have good effort and abilities, and may improve over time, but right now I don't see a lot of NHLer in him. Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016
Cam Morrison Note Drives to the net without the puck and Bjork rewards him with a great setup pass Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016

Cam Morrison Note Want to find Morrison on the powerplay? Look at the top of the blue paint Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016
Cam Morrison Summary Strong player who likes to take up space in front of the net. When he gets the puck in the offensive zone, he drives hard to the net and shows good hands to get hard shots and regularly forces saves. His lack of vision limits his threat with the puck however, because defenders can cheat to him without worrying as much about him making a hard-to-find pass. Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016
Joe Wegwerth Note Leaden feet really limits his potential Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016

Danny O’Regan Note O’Regan is a gamer. Huge effort, quick and driving the net. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Scrimmage Live 8/11/2016

Manuel Wiederer Note Wiederer with a good first step. Playing well with the puck, showing creativity. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Scrimmage Live 8/11/2016

Timo Meier Note Meier release is very quick. Comes at speed. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Scrimmage Live 8/11/2016
Tyler Nother Note Nother with another monster shift. He needs to leave San Jose with a ELC. RHD, big, nice first pass. Good hitter. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Scrimmage Live 8/11/2016
Tyler Nother Note Nother with a solid hit after a good read. Keeps the puck in the offensive zone. Simple game. Zachary DeVine SJS Dev Camp Scrimmage Live 8/11/2016
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
Martin Necas Note Dishes out a bad penalty kill crosscheck after the whistle and gets lucky to have matching minors. Not the smartest play. Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Martin Necas Note On the powerplay, fakes the slapshot and rips a pass to Safin for the goal. Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016

Martin Necas Note Whiffs on a powerplay slapshot from the blue line, which allows a clean breakaway that the goalie saved. Must be more careful with the puck than that. Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Martin Necas Summary Hard-effort game, good quickness and a willingness to get to the net, but nothing really impressive in this game. Some sloppy play at times and poor decisions. He has tools, though, and will need more viewings to get a good read on his abilities Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Michael Pastujov Note Keeps the puck well out in front when transitioning through the neutral zone, good puck possession into the offensive zone Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Michael Pastujov Note Gets a clean breakaway but loses the handle going back to his forehand and the prime chance slips away Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Michael Pastujov Note Leads a two-on-one with Poehling, makes the correct choice and puts a hard wrist shot on net that is saved but trickles into the crease, and Poehling is able to reach out and tip the puck into the net. The original shot from Pastujov was hard and difficult to handle for the goalie. Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Michael Pastujov Note Good backhand pass to set up Poehling for the goal. Was crowded by penalty killers but managed to get to the loose puck and make the difficult pass look easy Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Michael Pastujov Note Holds his wrist shot to disguise the release, and fools the netminder who makes a lucky save. Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Michael Pastujov Summary On the same line with Poehling, Pastujov was on the ice all game it seemed. His hard work and good hands helped set up a couple of the Poehling goals. Pastujov can skate, with above average speed but did not look blazingly fast by any means. Showed high-end vision throughout the game. Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Ostap Safin Note Soft hands in the corner, finds Chytil in the slot for a quick goal. The pass was weighted and targeted exactly as needed Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016

Ostap Safin Note More impressed with him on every shift. He just launched a hard slapshot from high on the halfboards near the top of the circle that was trouble for the US goalie. Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Ostap Safin Note Skating is smooth, balanced and fluid. Solid three-step acceleration and his pivots are clean and effortless. Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Ostap Safin Summary Big, long-legged winger that skates extremely well in all aspects. At 6'4, 198, he looks like a player that will add another 10-15 pounds over the next couple of years, and with his patience, puck skills and shot, Safin is a top prospect in the making. Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Ryan Poehling Note High work rate. Won a faceoff in the offensive zone, then found the puck, deked to the slot and forced a save.

Ryan Poehling Note Terrific back pass under pressure, hits the trailer right on the tape for a snap shot. How did he see that? Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Ryan Poehling Summary Poehling had a great game and the puck seemed to always find him. He is quick, with good size at 6'3, 185, and he uses his body well to maintain possession, get position at both ends, and create space. Willing to go the front of the net to make things happen, but has a nasty wrist shot from middle distance, too. Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Sasha Chmelevski Note Gets a pass from Lodnia in his feet, digs out the puck but has to stretch to corral the runaway puck, but is able to draw it back and wire a return pass to Lodnia for the easy goal Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
