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.

Spilling the sticks...
Player Name Note Type Note Writer Game Watched Viewing Method Game Date
Chase Pearson Note Pearson does all of his damage right at the goal mouth. I don't recall seeing him have a dangerous shot from more than ten feet out. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Chase Pearson Note On the powerplay, from just left of the right dot, a hard wrist shot high that goes over the net. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Cole Sillinger Note Out killing penalties, joins a short-handed rush, takes the pass, buries it. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Cole Sillinger Note Dangerous again on the penalty kill, with a partial break and a hard wrist shot just wide. Pearson was struggling to keep up, but couldn't. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Cole Sillinger Note Sillinger's speed is a weapon. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Cross Hanas Note Looks so solid on the ice, and plays like it, too. Not fast, probably about average speed or just a bit better. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Cross Hanas Note Will go straight to the top of the crease, with or without the puck. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Cross Hanas Note Stick down, preventing passes. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Cross Hanas Note Good cross-ice head pass starts the breakout. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Cross Hanas Note Veleno carrying the puck into the offensive zone, and Hanas tries to step across his line, and accidentally bumps him off of the puck. Why? Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Cross Hanas Note Fighting for a loose puck at the goal mouth, pokes it in. Tough, greasy goal. [Note that on replaying, the puck actually had landed behind the goalie's left pad, and Hanas's jab at it hit the pad as the puck was already edging across the line. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Jake Gaudet Note Killing penalties. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Jake Gaudet Note His straight line mechanics look awkward. His push is short, his return is short, and his arms are all over the place. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Veleno seems to like it down low on the right side and ripping shots on net from about the goal line. He scored there in an earlier game, and hit the post this time. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Not watching him in this game, but he just made such a perfectly weighted pass through traffic that I had to make a note of it. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Luke Toporowski Note Slow to get back, his man goes to the net, and Toporowski is not there in time to prevent the scoring chance. Goal against. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Martin Rysavy Note Playing a mostly passive game at both ends. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Martin Rysavy Note Good example of the passivity: puck on the offensive boards between two Detroit players about five feet apart. Rysavy tries to skate past and snag the puck instead of digging in and trying to win possession. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Martin Rysavy Note Again just reaching out for the puck instead of engaging, and this time Veleno just goes right past time. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Martin Rysavy Note Looks willing to put his shoulder in if he has no chance at a puck. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Navrin Mutter Note Fakes a defending forward, throws a wrist shot at the net blocked. Not much action on that shot. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Navrin Mutter Note Hard cross check at the front of the net. Mutter is nasty tough to play against. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Navrin Mutter Note Monster shoulder check on the back boards. He still knows how to throw crushing hits. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Navrin Mutter Note There's something about him that is so intriguing to me. Size, decent skating, decent hockey sense, and physicality that intimidates opponents. He just doesn't score, otherwise he would be an excellent pro prospect. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Navrin Mutter Note Mutter: guess what? Yep. A big hit along the boards. Then another one. Then he circles to the slot and gets a good chance, saved. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Navrin Mutter Note Drives, turns at a glide with the puck in front of him, eyes up, passes through the defender's triangle and sets up a beautiful chance. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Stanislav Svozil Note Not focusing on him here, but he keeps making smart, high-quality plays. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Stanislav Svozil Note I have Svozil too low on my current Top Defenders prospect ranking. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Good chance to see him skate full out as he tries to beaat out an icing. Excellent form, impressive speed. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Nce look to the slot to Sillinger in space, but the pass was a bit off target and Sillinger couldn't bring it in. Too bad. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Driving the right side, drops to Sillinger, circles in front of the net, then recognizes that the left defenseman had pinched in low, so Chinakhov hurries back to the blue line to cover. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Plays patiently, engaged but not overly aggressive, especially without the puck. It's like you can see him thinking, making the calculations, winding the spring. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Rocket one-timer from the right circle, hits traffic and bounces so high straight up that all the players at the net stopped to wait for it to come back down. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Subtle play to adjust his skating line and just basically create a running screen all through the defensive zone, allowing his D a chance to start the breakout. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Rocket one-timer from the top of the right circle (sound familiar?) that beats the netminder clean. What an excellent one-timer he has from there. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Time running out at the end of the second period, he has the puck on the wall just inside the blue line, and he wires a wrist shot that the goaltender had to fight off with his blocker. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note His wrist shot is hard and deceptive, and he can get it away from odd body positions. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Driving the neutral zone, passes to Sillinger on his left across to the blue line, takes an angle into space in front of Sillinger. When Sillinger passes to him, Chinakhov--with his back to the puck--lets the puck slide through his skates until it is in front of his left foot, then he one-times a snap shot on goal. Made me gasp. The play-by-play announcer didn't even know how to describe the play. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Puck at the blue line, Chinakhov in the high slot with his back to the net, facing the puck. Takes the pass, circles out to just inside the blue line, goes to the very high slot area, then blasts a 45-foot wrist shot over the goalie's shoulder. Wow! Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Goodness. Another one-time slapper from the top of the right circle. Excellent weight transfer. Blows it past the goaltender who was set up and ready but never even flinched. Hat trick. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Summary A smart player with excellent on-ice awareness and an upper-echelon shot. Skates well, and his balance is particularly evident in his ability to get his shot away no matter what his body position is. He's not a dynamic, game-breaking hockey player, and as such, I'm not sure that he'll become a top-line NHLer, but I'd be surprised if he wasn't a good second-line scoring winger. He passes well and sees the ice so well, and he is a creative offensive player without being a puck hog or neglecting his responsibilities. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Jonatan Berggren Note Berggren is so smart with the puck. He sees everything and knows exactly what he wants to do. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Looks big and strong, just a solid NHL-type build. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Powerful stride without a lot of wasted movement. Speed is good. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Hard wrist shot from the top of the circle, low far side, but the goalie fights it off with the pad. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Does well to cover the crease with the netminder trapped below the goal line. Veleno saved a goal, there. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Tries to split two defenders but can't get through and he loses the puck into the corner. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Gets a nice feed from Berggren and wrists it short side low, beats the goalie at the post. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Muscles his way through a check in the corner and leads a breakout. That's the kind of possession play that will earn Veleno his paychecks. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Summary Doesn't look that different from what I've seen from him before. Strong possession forward, good offensive tools, nothing spectacular but a workman-like player who has an NHL future. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Strong first push gives him good acceleration from a stop. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Cheating up towards the blue line with the puck in his zone. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note But… when the Wings get a turnover and break out, he's up ice fast on a 3-on-2 and burries a wrist shot short side top shelf. He held to puck long enough to freeze the goaltender, then roofed it over his shoulder. Nice shot. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Snappy pass off the boards to hit a cutter who feeds Pearson for the goal. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Excellent read as he gets a short pass from Berggren then one-touches a pass to the wing to the player with no one near him and a clear scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Uses body position so well to protect the puck. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Sort of half-hearted bump into the puck holder on the boards. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Slides laterally well with his stick active, eliminating lanes in the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Just tenacious out there, always engaged and active. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Gets the puck, turns his man to the net, goal. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Summary Probably the most effective player in the game, regardless of the goals he scored. Every shift he had the puck and made something happen. Has the speed, offensive mindset, good play going back. Does not look like he is as small as he is listed. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Note Second powerplay unit. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Note Takes a nice diagonal route to the net, stick ready, but the pass fro the corner doesn't get through to him. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Note Playing in the middle of the powerplay. He holds his top hand in high and tight against his chest to keep his stick blade flat on the ice but in close to his feet. Looks so awkward. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Note Certainly not afraid to get to the slot area. Moves fast. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Note Choppy acceleration that is good but can be improved. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Note Speeds up the right wing boards, but can't turn the corner against McIsaac, who just plays him off the puck. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Summary Worked hard, but nothing seemed to break for him. I liked that he seemed fearless and willing to go to the high-traffic areas to make plays. Needs to work on some issues with his feed and hands, but if he does, he could have a good professional future. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Pasquale Zito Note Takes a bad angle to the defender and allows a clean transition with speed. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Pasquale Zito Note Speed looks average. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Pasquale Zito Note Not very effective so far, looks off by a step or two and mostly floating at both ends. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Pasquale Zito Note Tries a wraparound, but the goaltender was ready for it and makes an easy save. Too slow in developing. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Riley Tufte Note Looks good on the move, but his first step is listless. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Riley Tufte Note Better glider than skater. Just gets so little push and takes a long time to reset, bu he can make up for some of that with his long reach. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Riley Tufte Note Trails the attack by a good bit because he just isn't getting up the ice fast enough. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Riley Tufte Note Has big drive, and as mentioned is good on the glide once he gets up to speed. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Riley Tufte Note Gets a ton of leverage on his snap shot so he generates a lot of power behind it. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Riley Tufte Note Comes out onto the ice after a change, straight into the offensive zone and a lucky puck lands right in his wheelhouse for a heavy one-time snap shot goal. Bang! Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Thomas Harley Note Harley is so smooth with the puck in transition. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Wyatt Johnston Note Top powerplay unit for this squad, playing at the bumper spot. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Wyatt Johnston Note Puck in his zone skips to his feet and he tries to just chop it blind out of the zone, but hits traffic at the blue line and stays in. He had time to make a more controlled play but didn't use it. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Wyatt Johnston Note Can't handle a pass and it skips away to a Red Wings player. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Yevgeni Oksentyuk Note Ill-advised behind the back pass that went straight to the Red Wing defender because Johnston had turned the other way and never saw the pass coming. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Yevgeni Oksentyuk Note Gets a one-time opening, but his shot goes center net, and the sprawling goaltender is able to make a save. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Yevgeni Oksentyuk Note Getting powerplay time in the middle. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Yevgeni Oksentyuk Note So lucky not get destroyed there. Took a suicide pass by turning fully around. Eeeek. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Yevgeni Oksentyuk Note Pitchforks a backhand pass to Kawaguchi, but puts into his skates. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Adam Sykora Note Races past Miroshnichenko up the left wing boards, drives into the offensive zone, soft pass to the middle that sets up a shot. Excellent wheels Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Adam Sykora Note Second-unit powerplay, working low at the crease. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Adam Sykora Note Using his feet to get a step ahead of the defending player, then passes off to the better option. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Adam Sykora Summary Sykora's game is all about using his skating ability to create opportunities. He showed decent vision and game awareness, and a strong drive to push up ice into the offensive zone. He worked diligently at both ends of the ice, but he wasn't as effective as I'd like him to be. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note Gets his stick into the lane to break up a pass. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note Top powerplay unit, taking up residence in the slot. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note Gets a shot away while falling. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note Good hard pass to launch an attack, then hustles to follow the play to the net. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note If the puck reaches him in the slot, its immediately on net. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note Uses his long reach to hold the puck at length and sweep around the Russian forechecker in the neutral zone. Confident with the puck. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note Excellent work to get back and break up what could have been a quality Michkov chance. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Summary Skating is above average, with good balance in tough traffic. Showed nice hands and the ability to carry the puck through the neutral zone, but he's not a puck handler. Choices were sound, puck movement quality, but his weapon is his ability to generate shots on net from within fifteen feet of the net. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Demidov Note Turning a bit in on defense, looking uncertain. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Demidov Note Head up, puts a sneaky backhand pass from below the goal line out to the side of the crease, goal. Great look. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Demidov Note Playing low on the second-unit powerplay, moves the puck with intention and snap. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Note Shows good balance as a hit spins him but he keeps his feet and is right back at it. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Note Good positioning to the left of a goal-mouth scramble. When the puck pops out, Kvochko finds him and Miroshnichenko buries it into the open net. A little lucky, perhaps, but he was ready and in the right place. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Note Gets another chance from the right of the crease, but the pass is in his feet and he couldn't get the shot away. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Note Sends a pass a bit behind the target. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Note Wearing the "C" for the Russians Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Note Another goal from about the same place. He's a menace from that spot, and his teammates know he's going to be there and be ready. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Summary Plays a quiet type of game, staying low and steady at both ends of the ice, using his positioning to create and defend attacks. His main role in the offensive attack was to set up at the side of the slot and funnel shots on net, and he was good at that. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Juraj Slafkovsky Note Continues to be effective in getting the puck up ice and on net. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Juraj Slafkovsky Note Drives the puck up the right, slides it over, goal. He made that play with effort, speed, determination. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Partial break at the end of a shift, but just takes a long-distance wrist shot that the goalie handles. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Top penalty kill unit Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Tries a long saucer pass from the corner out to the opposite side blue line, but intercepted. Not the greatest choice there. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Plays the right half-boards on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Michkov just gets his shot away whenever he wants. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Gave up a shot to try a pass, but it was tipped away from danger. Thought he should have just ripped it from there instead. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Not to be deterred, Michkov heads back up ice, draws three defenders, then makes a fantastic pass to the side of the net, through traffic, for an easy tap-in goal. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Summary Even in a game where he was drawing a ton of attention from the defenders and wasn't his most effective, he still managed to have a big impact on the game. He's not the most dynamic skater, but he is strong on his skates, and a puck possession monster. He sees the ice, knows what he wants to do, and it's difficult for the defense to prevent him from doing it. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Peter Repcik Note Bad giveaway from the top of the circle allows the Russians to launch a counter attack. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Peter Repcik Note Like his stride mechanics, but his turns are a bit wide. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Semyon Sinyatkin Note Big burst of speed on the penalty kill draws a penalty to prevent him from a clean breakaway. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Brayden Boehm Note Goes back to the bench hard. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Carlen Dezainde Note Hustles out to harass the point man. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Carlen Dezainde Note Not a lot of knee bend, so he's not pushing through with long extensions. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Carson Latimer Note Gets caught water skiing. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Cayden Glover Note His first step looks average from a stop, but his third/fourth step acceleration was good there chasing down a loose puck. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Jalen Luypen Note Short, choppy strides, but he has a change of gears when necessary Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Jalen Luypen Note Carries up the left side, muscles past a check in the neutral zone, dips in, wrap around, goal. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Jalen Luypen Note Takes a bump up high, but his balance is strong through his legs and he shrugs it off. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Jalen Luypen Note Killing penalty, wide sweeping stick, decent lateral movement to clog lanes. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021

Jalen Luypen Note Steps inside of the defender to get position for a stretch pass, and he creates a partial breakaway. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Jalen Luypen Note Always working to drive offense and get pucks into scoring positions. Hard worker, big scoring drive. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Logan Dowhaniuk Note Penalty kill time. Puts a hip check intop the puck carrier just inside the blue line and puts an end to that attack. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Logan Dowhaniuk Note Not doing much to give an outlet to his defensive partner who was behind their net and under pressure. Dowhaniuk needs to create an option there, but he was watching. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Oasiz Wiesblatt Note Bad pass in skates at speed, but he's able to pirouhette, stabilize the puck then flick a backhand pass to keep the rush moving. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Oasiz Wiesblatt Note Super responsible on defense. Gets back fast, covers for his D if they pinch in. In that sequence, he tied up the opponent at the front of the net and completely neutralized him. Well played. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Just coasting and floating around up top in his own zone while the entire play was happening at his net. No defensive input at all there. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Strength on his edges allows him to be highly manueverable laterally Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Tries a no-look backhand pass to the slot, but finds nothing. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Driving the neutral zone, takes a pass on the center ice dot, hits the offensive zone with one defender between him and the goalie, then passes no look to his left, to literally no one at all. I watched the sequence five times and still have no idea what he was thinking there. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Again, tries to pass without looking his teammate, and missed him by probably ten feet for an easy recovery by the opposing penalty killers who then clear the zone. What is up with him? Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Tries to drag the puck around the defender, but leaves it there. Bad turnover. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Still not engaging in defensive play, but a puckhandling Tri-City forward got too close and Martino stripped him. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Hunter Strand Note Good speed, nice skating technique Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Hunter Strand Note When he goes full out, he has head way out in front of his skates, back almost parallel to the ice. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Hunter Strand Note Nothing too special aobut his skating. Average or a little better speed, average or a little better agility. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Hunter Strand Note Being heavily relied on to do everything in this game, and the reason is obvious. He's solid in all aspects, probably the best all-around utilityforward on the team. But, there's not much spark there. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Kieran Cebrian Note Not getting much ice time, but when he does, he's involved, skating well, getting to the net and into the scrums. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Matthew Knies Note Straight ahead speed is lacking, maybe average. Lots of upper body movement side-to-side, feet moving fast, but he's not driving forward. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Matthew Knies Note Strong stick, good position, creates a turnover. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Matthew Knies Note He's a better skater with the puck than without, because when he has the puck, he keeps his stick out in front while straight-line skating, and is more balanced with less wasted movement. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Matthew Knies Note Snappy release on the wrist shot at speed. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021

Vinnie Borgesi Note Smooth crossovers, excellent acceleration, eager to join the rush. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021

Vinnie Borgesi Note Again using excellent crossovers to gain lateral acceleration. He's a good skater. I'm really starting to like this kid as a player. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Vinnie Borgesi Note Applying pressure to prevent a breakout, using his quickness to close a gap and force the Omaha player to abandon the attempt and turn back. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Dylan Duke Note High work-rate player. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021

Dylan Duke Note Keeps his stick on the ice, attentive and ready. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Dylan Duke Note Trips the Czech goalie, gets buried into the boards. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Dylan Duke Summary Did a lot of little things well in the game, gaining inside position at the crease, making himself available for passes, working into open spaces, and working hard on the defensive side of the game. He's not an offensive force by any means, but he plays a solid, honest game in all three zones. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jakub Altrichter Note Looks to be a bit slow going up the ice. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021

Jakub Altrichter Note He's making me crazy.When you watch him, he has a good tool set, with good skating, elusive puck handling, above average work rate, but nothing is happening for him. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jakub Brabanec Note He has a quality skill set and good offensive instincts. He's been one of the top drivers for the Czechs in this game. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jaroslav Chmelar Note Second powerplay unit, playing low and battling at the crease. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021

Jaroslav Chmelar Note Decent recovery speed on the back check. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jaroslav Chmelar Note With his size and skating, if he develops some scoring (he's young for the draft) he could become a good NHL-type player. Need to see some offense first, though. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jaroslav Chmelar Note Bites on a fake by Lane Hutson at the blue line, and Hutson drives past and starts a dangerous sequence. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021

Justin Janicke Note Speedy, just took an excellent line to prevent the shooter from a good look at the net. Went to the lane first, and then closed in on the shooter. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Justin Janicke Note Plays a slip and weave style. Ducks under bigger players and beats them with his edges. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Justin Janicke Note Tries to tie up Rysavy with his stick, but putting his stick out did nothing to stop Rysavy from getting his stick on the puck and scoring. Janicke needed to step in and actually tie up Rysavy instead of just trying to block him with a waist-high stick Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Justin Janicke Note His defensive game needs a lot of work to get to an effective level. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Justin Janicke Note Has the puck on the low boards, and he spins directly into the Czech defender and loses the puck. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Justin Janicke Note Throws a puck to the slot, but the only players there are all wearing Czech sweaters. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Shows some quickness through the neutral zone, then chips it past the US defender and goes to the corner. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Pucks scrum on the boards, he wins the puck then flicks a backhand pass to a teammate at the circle. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Top powerplay unit. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Skates hard to get back to his zone, going full out until he hit his defensive assignment then pulling up hard. There's no glide in his game. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Good choice to back off instead of attempting to race to a 50/50 puck. If he'd been unsuccessful, that would have been a 2-on-1 going the other way. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note He's a part of the action on every shift, always making some kind of impact on a play. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note What form on his one-timer. Looks picture perfect on form, and he gets a ton of power from it. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note One-timer, kept it low on the ice, but the goalie made a good save. Pajer's one-timer is top notch. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Steals a puck in his own end, drives up ice diagonally, entering the offensive zone along the left boards, but loses an edge pulling up. He then hustles back, lifts a stick, dives to block a shot. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Another smart, safe play, this time to chip the puck past a defender and clear his own zone. He put the puck into empty space and allowed his side to get relief from the US pressure and reset. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Summary There are a lot of good things in his game, but it's his one-timer that lights up a game. He plays well, skating is excellent, and made several smart choices with and without the puck. He's a player to keep an eye on as he develops over the next three or four years. Pajer looks like the type of player who cracks the NHL at 21 or 22 and people start asking about where he came from. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note Wide skating stride, his return brings his feet back to beyond shoulder width at best. He's leaking power everywhere. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note Good size at 6'1, 195 pounds as a D-1 Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note He goes to the front of the net any time he can. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note Strong on his feet, but needs to work on his overall technique and balance. He looks like a young player going through a growth spurt. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note Haven't seen him create much in his ice time, but he's working hard and putting in the effort on every shift. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note If you ever want to find McGroarty on the ice, just loot to the crease. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Summary An interesting young player for the 2022 draft. He has a solid frame and good speed despite not having the best skating mechanics. He goes hard to the net and as he continues to develop looks like a player who has an NHL floor. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Ryan St Louis Note Skates well, moves his feet, but he's not affecting play much so far. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Ryan St Louis Note Missed a chance to change and then spent nearly two minutes on his shift. He was dead out there. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Ryan St Louis Note Skates well, but he's not active. There looks to be almost no urgency in his game. Follows the play instead of leading it. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Sean Behrens Note Uses his leverage and balance to just totally upend the much larger Simon Marha. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Simon Marha Note Paying a lot of attention to positioning, going quickly and diligently to his spots. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Simon Marha Note Digs a puck out from in front of his net, goes up the right side, pulls up, gets planted by Behrens. Ooof. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Brad Lambert Note Lambert is full activity every shift. Hitting, using his feet, always trying to make something positive happen for his team. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Buchelnikov Note Hard wrist shot from the circle goes just wide. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Buchelnikov Note Using physical play to create a turnover. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Buchelnikov Note Quality skating and speed, bordering on excellent-level mobility. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Buchelnikov Note Wrist shot causes trouble, then he gathers his own rebound low and tries to chip it off the goalie's back. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Buchelnikov Summary Interesting player that works hard at both ends of the ice. Forechecks well, uses his skating ability to create or deny chances. Fiesty, with offense. I liked him. Sept 6 birthdate. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Katelevsky Note His feet go fast, but his body isn't going anywhere. Generating no forward power from his strides. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Katelevsky Note Skates completely hunched over. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Katelevsky Note Killing penalties Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Katelevsky Summary Not a fan of his play in this game. Lackluster, skating is problematic, just seemed to bring little to the game overall. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Fyodor Svechkov Note Errant pass to nobody at the right point and puck goes out into center ice. Follows that with a beauty of a pass from below the goal line to the crease that should have been a goal, but saved. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Fyodor Svechkov Note Speed looks only average, good agility and balance though. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Fyodor Svechkov Note Poor choice to try a backwards, between-the-legs pass at the offensive blue line. Gave the puck away with less than five seconds in the period, and allowed the Finns a late attack. Just hold the puck there and protect the lead. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Fyodor Svechkov Summary Made as many mistakes as he made special plays. His speed is average but he gets to good spots on the ice. If he can clean up the mental errors and improve decision making, he could blossom. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Nice pass into space to lead his man to good drive into the zone. Smart pass. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Good lateral speed, using edges and crossovers to curl through the crease and get to the corner first. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Attempts a dangle in the high slot but leaves the puck behind. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Enters the zone, curls to the slot, wrists one easily saved. Good route to the high-danger area to create a chance. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Little give and go, rips a wrist shot low far side that beats the goalie clean. Fast release, with power. Nice shot. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Extends his arms with the puck at his hip to change the position of the shot release, trying to use more of the defenders position to screen the release. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Summary Drove a lot of the Russian offense in the game for a player not named Michkov. He has an excellent shot that he works hard to utilize and disguise. Smart player in offensive zone. He's the type of player that can both create and finish chances, and he has a good sense of where to put the puck to make the most of the game situation. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikolai Makarov Note Positioning looks sound and he just took a great angle to make sure the puck carrier stayed outside the dots. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikolai Makarov Note Closes the distance to head off a potential attack and regain inside position against the rushing Finnish forward. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikolai Makarov Note Big, strong defender playing a ton of minutes. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikolai Makarov Summary Just a solid, stay-at-home type of minute chewing defender. His positioning was fantastic, and he showed some good speed from time to time. He's a defender that will make life miserable for forwards trying to get to scoring spots in his zone. However, his offense seems limited, so he's a guy that teams will just park at the back end to shut down top opponents and make good first passes out of the zone. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Oliver Kapanen Note On the forecheck, chases Svechkov instead of positioning himself to cut off the escape route, and Svechkov is able to breakout. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Oliver Kapanen Note Another forechecking sequence, he's active, hounding the puck unitl he creates a turnover. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Oliver Kapanen Note Gets his stick into the passing lane and intercepts a breakout pass just outside the blue line. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Oliver Kapanen Summary It seemed like he was effective on every shift, not with anything fancy, just playing solid hockey in all three zones. He'll get better with experience, too. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Sami Paivarinta Note Coming back to support the defense, not in a hurry but calling out coverages. Stayed behind the puck carrier though, instead of pushing to catch him. Would have liked more intensity on the backcheck on that play. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Sami Paivarinta Note Jumps a pass at the blue line, then draws a short-handed penalty shot. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Sami Paivarinta Note Very good speed, but hs seems to only use it on the attack. Still lacking urgency going back to his own end. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Sami Paivarinta Note Good recognition to cover the left point after the defender pinches in deep. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Sami Paivarinta Note Tough to pin down when he has the puck. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Sami Paivarinta Summary I liked everything about his game as long as he had the puck or was working in the offensive zone. On defense, he seemed like he understood what he was supposed to be doing, but didn't care a lot about doing it. If he sharpens up and develops play on the defensive side of the puck, he could become a quality second-line winger with scoring potential. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Samu Salminen Note Right-wing circle on the powerplay, hard one-time shap shot beat the goalie to tie the game. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Samu Salminen Note Tries a stretch pass, but the head man was surrounded by opposing players. Not the best choice from Salminen. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Samu Salminen Note Captain of the Finn U18 squad. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Samu Salminen Note Bats a puck out of the air waist height for his second goal of the game. Great hand/eye on that one, as the puck hit a stick and popped up right in front of him. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Samu Salminen Summary Offensive minded, but a quality hockey player at both ends of the ice. Showed a lot of potential in the game to become a top-six scoring forward in the NHL. I liked his stability in the game, even though he did make a few mistakes. He'll learn, and he looks like he is capable of a lot of potential development.

Francesco Pinelli Note Skating looks a bit hunched and sloppy. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Francesco Pinelli Note Seems to struggle with his feet. Needed to get one more stride to a loose puck, but couldn't get there so he was forced to reach out to try to poke the puck instead. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Francesco Pinelli Note Works his way to a turnover off a bad play from the Czech goaltender, but then he just gave the puck back with a pass to a Czech player in the slot. What an excellent opportunity wasted. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Jakub Brabanec Note Has some quickness, but his hips look slow in pivots. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Jakub Brabanec Note Perfect setup pass fro the one-timer by Pajer. Good weight, right in front of the back foot. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Jakub Brabanec Note His passes have excellent touch. Just made another one that hits the receiver like he just dropped it there. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Jakub Brabanec Note Solid agility and sharp turns. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Jakub Brabanec Note Winning all the races to pucks and open ice. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Beautiful one-timer that he got all of, and rips the puck into the net. One of the prettiest one-timers I've seen in this tournament. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Hustles down ice and beats out Zellweger to nullify an icing. He made up ground and passed Zellweger. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Mason McTavish Note Closes from the slot to the corner, good movement, puts a hip into his man to force an early pass. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Mason McTavish Note Well done to just chop pass a puck out of feet and back to the point to reset the play in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Mason McTavish Note Changes gears and develops additional speed hitting the offensive zone looking for a pass. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Mason McTavish Note Good centering pass while moving diagonally into the corner. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021

Stanislav Svozil Note Has the puck in the neutral zone, and skates away from Pinelli. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Stanislav Svozil Note Top powerplay unit, playing high with Pajer and Brabanec on the boards. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Wyatt Johnston Note Receives an excellent pass from Bedard, right at the top of the crease, and buries it on his first shift. He got that away in a hurry and the goalie had no chance. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Wyatt Johnston Note Average straightline speed, maybe half a step faster than Pinelli Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Albert Sjoberg Note Speed looks average. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Anton Olsson Note Has a powerful one-time slapshot. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Fabian Lysell Note Carries into the offensive zone, wide base as he tries to stickhandle past a defender. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Fabian Lysell Note Top powerplay unit, playing at the right point, sliding down to the right circle. A lot of the play going through him. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Fabian Lysell Note Draws a penalty with his acceleration as he looked to split defenders and was tripped, but gets called for diving as well. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Fabian Lysell Note Lysell can fly. Excellent straight-line speed. Probably the fastest player in this game. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Fabian Lysell Note Jumps an ill-considered pass, dekes around Behrens, goes behind the net, wraparound, goal. Excellent individual sequence from the speedy winger there. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Fabian Lysell Note Hits the offensive zone with some speed, carries into the circle, ,the picks out the top farside corner with a laser wrist shot. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Fabian Lysell Summary Fast and skilled with a high scoring drive, Lysell looks to be a high-pace scoring winger for the NHL level. Will need to clean up a bit of his defensive play, but he was by no means a liability in his own end. He is, however, all offensive instincts. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Closing speed stands out as he chases down a breakaway opportunity Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Wrist shot looks a bit deliberate. Has tried two so far, and both have hit a defender in the shinpads. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Active puckhandler. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Nice cross-ice pass from the right circle to the left point sets up a PP goal. That was a good look to find the clear path and lift the puck over sticks in the lane. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Another wrist shot blocked. He's forcing those attempts without much gusto. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Follows with an excellent pass to the far post that should have been a goal. His passes are already determined before he gets the puck, seeing the ice well. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Distributes the pucks with so much confidence, accuracy and intelligence. He just set up another attempt that should have been a goal. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Smooth skater, carries the puck so well, excellent vision and distribution, but so far lacking intensity. There doesn't appear to be much goal-scoring drive there. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Uses his speed to create a break, but his lack of offensive dynamism cost him when he got to the net. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Effective on the penalty kill because of his quickness and long reach. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Fearless passer. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Poor puck protection on that play, gives the puck away just inside the offensive blue line Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Summary Good skater who is a natural playmaker. His vision and ability to get the puck to teammates are both excellent, and he reads the ice incredibly well. His usage and success on the penalty kill shows his defensive awareness is also very good. His shot is a weakness, though, and looks more like a tactic than a weapon. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Liam Gilmartin Note Solid hit in the neutral zone Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Liam Gilmartin Note Playing a physical game, used his shoulder and leverage to separate the puck the Swedish carriers, creates a turnover. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Liam Gilmartin Note Finds a loose puck in the high slot with plenty of time and space, but puts the puck over the top of the net. Would have liked to see him take one more step and force the goalie to make a move. However, he was likely just surprised to have everything so open all of a sudden. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Liam Gilmartin Summary A straightforward, physical forward with some offensive skill. He looks to be a bottom-six type of player who could develop into a decent two-way possession-type player at the higher levels. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Redmond Savage Note Good acceleration off the glide Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Redmond Savage Note Blocks a bomb from Olsson. Wow, that hurt. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021

Redmond Savage Note Lines up a hit at the blue line but misses his man entirely and the Swedes gain the offensive zone with little trouble. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Redmond Savage Note Good technique straight ahead, just not very explosive or fast. Changes directions well and his lateral movement is good or better. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Redmond Savage Note A couple of chances in the third period, but both times the puck slipped off of his stick. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Redmond Savage Summary Savage was mostly used in a defensive capacity here, killing all of the penalties and working hard in the defensive and neutral zones. He does have some offensive ability, but he lacks an explosiveness in his feet and in his hands that will likely limit his offensive upside as he moves up the ranks. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note Good hustle play to step into the defender's path, take him off the puck, curl to the slot. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note One timer into the side netting. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note Another one-timer, blocked in front. The shot seems a bit telegraphed. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note When he's holding the puck, he is patient and mostly picking out the right plays. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note One time shap shot that fooled the netminder. That shot actually looked much more threatening than some of the earlier big-wind-up slapshot attempts. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note Positioning is a but ragged in his own zone, but keeps his stick on the ice, in lanes, and stays attentive. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note Definitely not afraid to shoot. He likes to put pucks on net and his wrist shot is heavy. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note Gets a rebound at the edge of the crease and roofs it past the diving netminder. His career will likely be determined by how effective he can continue to be in that area of the ice. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note Passing is not as natural a skill as his shooting. Passes are decently accurate, but he telegraphs them a bit, and they seem secondary optios instead of chance generators. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Summary A shoot-first player who will make his living in the homeplate area of the ice. His skating is average, but he is strong on his skates and able to maintain his position when defenders are leaning on him. He needs to develop his passing game, but his shot is quick and sharp and instinctive. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sean Behrens Note Floats a soft pass off the boards along the offensive zone blue line, easily intercepted and turned the other way. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021

Sean Behrens Note Not the greatest speed. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sean Behrens Note Playing the left halfboards on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021

Sean Behrens Note Carries through the neutral zone with determination and some good manueverability. Not a speedster, but takes a confident route into the offensive zone with the puck. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sean Behrens Note Patient at the left point while the play in low in the right corner, but as the puck moves towards the crease, he drives down weak side for a possible rebound chance. Smart play. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sean Behrens Note Gets a puck at the blue line, dips left and gets around two Swedish players to the outside, wrists one on net. He's an elusive puck carrier. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sean Behrens Note Again pushing the puck up ice. He's been one of the US's top possession players in the game. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sean Behrens Summary An interesting player from the back end. He lacks a top gear, but his ability to maneuver through traffic and beat defenders despite not being super fast is impressive. He timed his attacks well, and played a smart game in transitiion, particularly. Still shakey in his own end (Lysell faked him out of his skates on one play), but he could become a good middle pair, transitional defenseman. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Simon Edvinsson Note Smooth movement with and without the puck Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Simon Edvinsson Note Going back behind his net to retrieve a puck, checking over his shoulder for options as he goes in for the puck, then making a safe play to seal the puck off from the forechecker and moving the puck to a teammate. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Simon Edvinsson Note Grat read to intercept a breakout pass. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Simon Edvinsson Note Balance is steady, keeps well-centered above his skates. Strides are somewhat methodical, but he still shows okay speed. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Simon Edvinsson Note Long-legged strides cover a lot of ice with little effort necessary. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Simon Edvinsson Summary Another excellent Swedish defender with smooth , long limbs, and a deceptive speed. He looks almost sleepy at times because everything he does looks so effortless. Edvinsson could develop into a player that might one day be considered the best of his draft class. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
William Stromgren Note Gets a loose puck in the high slot, uses his body to shield while he settles the puck, then puts a strong wrist shot off the post. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Braxton Whitehead Note Uses his edges well, has good speed, too. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Braxton Whitehead Note Quick to a loose puck, then uses his speed to create a chance and draw a penalty. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Braxton Whitehead Summary His best attribute is his skating, showing both agility and speed. Gets to loose pucks, jumps into plays at both ends. He did not get many looks at the net in this game, but his hands looked okay. Needs seasoning. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Chase Bertholet Note Has the puck in his end, top of the right circle facing his goal. With two better passing choices to either defender, he chooses instead to buttonhole towards the boards and gets trapped there by a forechecker, and turns the puck over to the attackers. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Chase Bertholet Note Footwork needs help. He hops to get his feet in the right position for accleration. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Chase Bertholet Note Lack of agility costs him on defense as he is having trouble keeping on his man. Ends up reaching a lot. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Chase Bertholet Note Takes a solid hit in open ice and loses the puck. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Conor Bedard Note Generates a lot of velocity on his shot, power and accuracy with a super-fast release. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor Bedard Note Comes into the zone on the left-wing side, pulls up and passes to the right point to hit a man just entering the zone with speed. Bedard sees the whole ice so well. That wasn't the most obvious option, but it was the best one. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor Bedard Note Rolling puck, bouncing puck, it makes no difference, he'll still get it on net with heat. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor Bedard Note Excellent look-off pass to the left circle for an assist. Showing shot all the way in, eyes on the net, then a perfect pass for an easy goal with the netminder out high to stop Bedard. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor Bedard Summary I will never get tired of watching Bedard play. He does everything so well, and has that innate sense for the game around him. His shot has a ferocious quality to it that everyone has to respect, and then his vision and passing are just as good or better. Makes plays at speed, but also slows the game down when he needs it that way. Just a brilliant player. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor Geekie Note Long strideswith good form, he moves faster than he looks. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Conor Geekie Note Solid hit in the neutral zone. Uses his size to his advantage. Good, clean check that completely disrupts the play. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Conor Geekie Note Drives the goal line, slides a puck into the goalie's pads, then gathers the rebound and roofs it backhand from in close. Nice goal. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor Geekie Summary For a young player with his size (6'4, 205), he uses his body as a weapon, which many skilled young big guys either avoid or have not yet learned. Geekie's passing are excellent, but he misfired on shots a couple of times an looked a bit awkward in setting up his shot. Needs to work on his acceleration and footwork, but that looks correctible and will get better with time. I wouldn't say he is a top prospect, but he could be a good prospect. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor McClennon Note Strong balance to stay on his feet while fighting for space against a bigger player. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Conor McClennon Note Excellent long diagonal pass throught traffic to lead Krebs in on a partial breakaway. That was a beauty. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Conor McClennon Note Gets a goal off his shin pad at the crease from the Krebs hot pass that got deflected up into McClennon's shins. Accidental goal for him, but it was his positioning that made it possible. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor McClennon Note Good hit. He may be small, but he plays hard. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Sloan Stanick Note Carries with speed into the zone, tries a pass to the front but leads his man too much and the puck goes into the corner. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Zachary Benson Note Active penalty killer. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Zachary Benson Note Making some questionable puck choices, often carrying or handling the puck when a simple pass would be a better option. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Zachary Benson Note Speedy for sure, but his game needs refinement and experience. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Zachary Benson Note Puck scramble at the net, and Benson is the only one who sees the puck escape to the side. He snags it and wraps around for a goal that no one else saw coming. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Conor Bedard Note Starts in his own end, hits the blue line with speed, dekes a defender, then snaps a shot from the circle that beats the goaltender over his glove for his first WHL goal. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Conor Bedard Note Steals a puck along the boards on the left side circle, pulls the puck around a player as he cuts to the slot, and then blows a shot past the goalie. That puck was in the net and the goaltender had barely begun to move. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Conor Bedard Note Definitely a shooter, but he's also a good passer and moves well to make a play. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Conor Bedard Note Great look to pass across the slot to the man cutting to the net, but they just missed the connection. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Conor Bedard Summary Did not disappoint in his WHL debut. It's obvious why Bedard is playing at 15, and other than maybe Ozzy Weisblatt, he was easily the most electric player on the ice. He is impossible to handle when he has the puck, and has a range of deceptive moves and puckhandling to protect the puck and create shooting lanes. Without the puck, he is constantly engaged all over the ice, and although his defense needs some development, he wasn't shy about using his body and looked eager to contribute to defending the net. He's an excellent skater and like all aspects of his game, his skating will improve with strength and experience. Definitely the real thing. Just a fantastic hockey player. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Drew Englot Note Not the most agile skater, a bit slow on his stops and change of direction, loses Weisblatt who steps to the slot and scores. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Drew Englot Note Waving his stick as a form of defense. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Easton Armstrong Note Builds speed through a few strides, feet look a little jittery in small spaces. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Easton Armstrong Note Big kid, looks tall and solidly built. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Easton Armstrong Note Forces a snap shot when waiting and moving the puck was the better option. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Easton Armstrong Note Fishing for the puck instead of actually committing to defense. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Easton Armstrong Note Has the puck on a two-on-one, keeps it, fires the puck over the cross bar. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Graydon Gotaas Note Mobile, active in his zone. Lost an edge, recovered quickly and regained position. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Layton Feist Note Poor pass that caused problems in his own end. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Layton Feist Note Creates a chance in the high slot, but his shot was well wide on the far side. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Layton Feist Note Good job recovering back and putting a shoulder into the puck carrier trying to drive the net. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Logan Linklater Note Loses an edge and takes out the goaltender's feet. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Logan Linklater Note On the powerplay, low at the side of the net, takes a pass and steps forward to try a backhand shot, saved. He's been battling there at the crease for the entire shift. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Nolan Allen Note Tries a hit at the blue line but doesn't get enough, and Bedard slips past him. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Sloan Stanick Note Has tiny, pitter-patter steps, which keep his feet under him for balance but seem to limit his burst. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Sloan Stanick Note Overskating the play a bit. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Sloan Stanick Note Average or a little better speed though the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Sloan Stanick Note Second-unit powerplay. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Tyson Laventure Note Good on his inside edges, giving him nice maneuverability at a slow glide. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Tyson Laventure Note He's got some speed. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Ashton Ferster Note Strong feet, well-balanced, allows him to absorb hits Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brayden Boehm Note Nice turn, finds his man, and delivers a solid body check along the neutral-zone boards. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brayden Boehm Note Good accleration there. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brayden Boehm Note Throwing hits all over the ice. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brayden Boehm Note Tries to drive and turn the corner, but the defender matches him and shoulders him off his turn and intot he boards. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brayden Boehm Note Tracking the play, looks engaged, but he's more of an observer than a participant. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brayden Boehm Summary Plays a physical game with good skating, but in this game at least, the play was generally out of his effective range of interaction. Many times he was in the middle of the zone but the play was along the boards, etc. It made it difficult to get a good read on his puck skills. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Cayden Glover Note Has a wide-footed turn and stance, which makes him look off balance. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Steady stride, seems to conserve some speed as neccesary. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Change of direction is crisp. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note One-times a long pass that was at his back foot. He got a lot of power on that. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Aware of opportunities and finds the play quickly. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Converts a back-door pass into an open net. Good footwork to open himself for the one-time shot. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Moves so well through the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note His first step looks good, allows him to jump into spaces. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Missed a one-timer (pass close to his front foot) but I couldn't tell if he whiffed or the puck jumped on the 20th-minute ice. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Has a fluid speed. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Good hit from Guenther to knock the player off the puck in the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Snaps a wrist shot from the slot. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Summary Definitely more of a scorer than a playmaker. Guenther has an excellent array of shots, with power and accuracy, that he uses often. His passing and vision are good, but he finishes chances far more than he creates them. He has very good straight-line speed and is agile in his turns and changes of direction. He can give and absorb hits, plays from the dots in, and will make his living beating NHL goaltenders from the left circle. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Jayden Henderson Note Buries the puck carrier into the boards. That was a thumping hit. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Looks small, working hard but having a difficult time getting the puck away from pressure in his own end. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Winds up for a big slapper from the right point but hits a leg in front. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Killing penalties, good stickwork in the lanes Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Very quick, and he uses that to help cover gaps. Not too fond of his puck management so far. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Gets in short-handed, winds up a slap shot. His backswing is slow to develop, giving goalies a tick of extra time to prepare for the shot. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Getting a ton of ice time in this game. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Another questionable puck decision leads to a two-on-one against, and he's forced to chase back. His speed again helping him to recover from his mistake. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Recovers a loose puck behind his own net, then backhands it out to the slot, right to a Medicine Hat player for a good scoring chance against. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Summary Needs to tidy up his defensive game a lot, and improve on his decisions with the puck, but other than being just 5'9, he has good tools. He is quick, can use his feet to cover his mistakes and take away space from attackers. However, he will absolutely have to limit those mistakes or players at the next level will take full advantage and his speed won't help him nearly as much. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brendan Brisson Note Tries to slip a little pass across the crease to a wide open Beecher, but the puck clips the defender's skate and bobbles out of Beecher's reach. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Brendan Brisson Note Driving the high slot without the puck, but the pass was too hard and into his skates. I'd like to see him adjust a bit better, but that was tough handle. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Brendan Brisson Note Rips a pass through traffic, but I think that it surprised Beecher, and the puck skips out intot he neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Cam York Note Keeps turning his back to the puck. He needs to get that habit out of his game, and now. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
John Beecher Note Looks huge out there. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
John Beecher Note He's fast enough to beat people to loose pucks, but he still doesn't seem to use his speed often. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
John Beecher Note Pulls a puck down with a high stick, which means that the puck was probably twenty feet in the air. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
John Beecher Summary Great size, excellent on faceoffs and when he wants to use it, he can be quite fast. However, at this point he still seems fairly one-dimensional in the offensive zone and lacks creativity and fast reaction thinking. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Kent Johnson Note Diving attempt to sweep the puck away from an attacking forward at the blue line Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Kent Johnson Note Slick, behind his back pass into an open space at the blue line, finding Beniers is stride for a clean zone entry that appeared out of nowhere. Wow. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Kent Johnson Note Another great play to get the puck to Beniers. He poked the puck away just inside the blue to keep zone possession, then makes a lateral pass while falling to find Beniers. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Kent Johnson Note Puck on a string, helps keep the play in the offensive zone, then gets a shot in close, and Beniers buries the rebound. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Kent Johnson Summary Just an outstanding NCAA debut, showing patience, tenacity and super-clever passing vision. This game got out of control quickly (Michigan was up six goals before the end of the second period), so I want to see him in close combat, but he's fun to watch. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Note Skates are not coming back underneath him on the return, instead his feet are wide set Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Note Beniers takes the pass from Johnson, dips inside his man to get around him, passes off and then goes hard to the front of the net, where he tips in the game's first goal and his first for Michigan. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Note Moves much better than he looks like he will. Smooth on his edges. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Note Getting time on the penalty kill. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Note Just looks like he was born to play this game. So aware and at ease with and without the puck. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Note Works just as hard in the defensive zone as he does up ice. I really love this kid's game. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Summary Does everything so well, including getting deep into his own zone and playing solid defense to win back pucks. He is highly aware at all times, shows excellent antipation with and without the puck, and is constantly looking for ways to produce and help his team. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Michael Mancinelli Note Decent first step as he jumps to a loose puck and beats the defender to it. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Note Pivots with ease, and does so to keep square to the puck carrier Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Note Backs with the puck, dragging theforechecker deeper and deeper, then flips a pass to his D partner and Michigan goes fast up the ice. Power steps around the forechecker and beats him to the neutral zone for a five-on-four attack. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Note Smart choice to pull up a bit and allow the attacking forward to reach a loose puck first, which gave Power a better line and the angle to rub him off on the boards and gain puck possession. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Note Continues to absorb contact in order to make a safer pass. I wonder how long it will take before these Arizona State forecheckers stop closing on him like that. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Note Looking a bit lost tracking the speed of play in the defensive zone on that sequence. He was holding his spot more than playing active defense. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Note Excellent pass to feed York sneaking in on the left side, who then beats the goalie five hole. Great look. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Summary For a draft-year defenseman playing his first NCAA game, Powers looks composed and in control almost the entire game. There were a couple of moments of indecision, but otherwise he was on top the game, making plays with his feet, his body, and his offensive game. Nice passing, safe reads, and moves so well for such a big guy. Just an outstanding prospect and a top draft prospect for sure. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Note Buzzing around the offensive zone (as usual), pulls the goalie way out of position but just can't quite tuck the puck in around the post. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Note Poor choice to try to one-hand a puck up the boards and push it past the opposing forward. Gift turnover. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Note Just audacious with the puck. He's not afraid to try anything at all. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Alexander Pashin Note Small, speedy player with fine first couple of steps. At a glide, he accelerates to speed in just a stride or two. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Note Wrist shot from the circle gets tremendous power with not much stick movement. Wrists snap and the puck is in the net. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Note Wheels and energy, especially in the offensive end. Just started a great give and go, but his partner took too long to get the puck back to Pashin or he would have been in all alone with the goalie. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Note Dishes out a good hit in the corner. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Note Turns the corner and flicks a pass to the crease but it's broken up by the defender. High scoring drive in Pashin. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Note Killing penalties, gives a little shove after the whistle to try to move the Canadian player away from the crease. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Note Should have moved the puck instead of trying to speed his way behind his net and up the boards. He got caught and buried and turned the puck over in his own zone. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Summary Pashin fits that typical small, crafty player mode that has had success in the NHL. He plays at both ends of the ice, and is willing to play a physical game despite his size. He is a player that drives play toward the offensive zone, and is capable of scoring once he gets there. He has a quality wrist shot with power and accuracy from distance. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Dmitri Zlodeyev Note Tied up his man a defensive-zone faceoff, and he's locked up at the crease. He stays there, keeping position well, then when the puck exits the zone he's up ice and puts a good solid hit on Weisblatt. D zone start, O zone finish. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Dmitri Zlodeyev Note Defensively responsible, quick to get back when he senses danger. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Dmitri Zlodeyev Note Got a hard wrist shot that rocketed off his stick and almost beat Garand up high from the circle. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Dmitri Zlodeyev Note Just not working very hard. His feet are silent a lot of the time. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Marat Khusnutdinov Note Tries a shoulder fake, the defender doesn't bite, so he passes to his winger. Good choice on a play where many would try to power through the defender instead of finding the better option. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Marat Khusnutdinov Note Skating is nice and compact, not much wasted movement, and the result is good speed and acceleration. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Marat Khusnutdinov Note Killing penalties and his mobility is a key asset for that. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Marat Khusnutdinov Note Wearing the C for Russia. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Marat Khusnutdinov Note Spins away to avoid a hit. High agility on display. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Marat Khusnutdinov Summary A smooth skater who plays up and down the ice and looks well coached. A player who contributes something on every shift. He might not be the most talented player on the ice, but he will be among the hardest working and looks willing to do all the little things well to make his team successful. He will grind, cycle, play defense, pick out good plays. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Pavel Tyutnev Note Diving stick sweep gets just a piece of Foudy's shot and saves an open net goal. Excellent effort. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Pavel Tyutnev Note Cruises the offensive blue line looking for something to come free, and he's reading those opportunities well. This time he cuts in, tries a move and loses the puck. Regains, shoots into shinpads in front. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Pavel Tyutnev Note Plays defense by waving his stick. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Pavel Tyutnev Note Has fast hands, good at collecting the puck, and in this case he settled it on the move, turning backward and fed Pashin at the side for a snap goal. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note Size is impressive at 6'3, 180 pounds. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note With Foudy coming in, he goes to a knee to block, and gets a piece. Looked tentative, though. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note Handled the puck well there when it was in his skates. Not easy for a tall, young player. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note Took a big hit in the corner, and although he got up quickly and re-engaged in the play, he seemed a bit disoriented at the net trying to catch back up to the action. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note Does well to find the puck at the crease and get a clean pk clearance. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note Commits early going to a knee to block off the shooting lane. He's done this a couple of times and the puck carrier just manuevered around him taking advantage of Mukhamadullin's stationary position. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note You can see the skillset, height, skating, etc., but he looks tentative and a bit lacking in his positioning and physical game around his net. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note Can’t handle Foudy's speed, and he gets beaten on the turn and Foudy scores. No shame in losing a skating match to Foudy, but Mukhamadullin could have leaned on him more heavily and cut him off better. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Summary Looks like a project defenseman that has the tools necessary to be an NHL defenseman but will need some time to fill out, get more comfortable in his own end, and get a bit of snarl into his game. After this game, he looks like a player that might be better suited to a less physical, big-ice-surface game in which he can use his feet and length. More of a puck mover than a carrier, but he does move the puck well. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Charles-Antoine Dumont Note Agility and change of direction are very good. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note So smooth in everything he does, his stride, his composure with the puck. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Taking the puck behind the net, fakes the back pass, drives behind the net and out and turns for a shot. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Feasting in the faceoff circle. Cleanly winning drop after drop. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019

Dawson Mercer Note Hard slapper while gliding backwards, a one-timer from the left circle. Rocket. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Hands are active on the stick, loose and confident puckhandler. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Intercepts a pass in the neutral zone, drives the left wing, around the original passer, then cuts to hard to the net along the bottom of the circle and dishes to the player with a better shooting angle. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note With the Chicoutimi goalie behind the net with the puck, Mercer swoops in, takes it cleanly away from him, and goes straight into a wraparound for an easy but stunning goal. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Hands and vision are so great. In a board scrum, he still manages to see the open man and pick the puck out of the pile and swiftly backhand a pass to him before anyone can stop it. Sick stuff. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Hands are so crafty the opposing defense and goalie have a difficult time reading shot or pass. Either can come off of his stick in an instant. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Loose puck, he collects and takes off. Lapierre tries to match him, but Mercer gains a step, and Lapierre hooks him to prevent a possible breakaway. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note His full-out mechanics are not clean. He doesn't get enough extension or power in his pushes. If he cleans that up he'll get faster at the top end. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Summary Simply one of my favorite players of this draft, and has been for a while. He looks lean, and his power skating needs work, but his is agile and rarely loses out on getting to the spot before his opponents. His hockey iq is ridiculous, which helps overcome the missing top gear. But it's his hands that shine when he has the puck on his stick, and he seems to see plays no one else notices. Just a fantastic player and a potential NHL superstar. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Conserves his energy skating, but when he needs to go, he can generate speed, and immediately. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note In his zone, constantly checking to see where the attackers are. Head is on the proverbial swivel. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Matching the pace of the game without having to dig in, which allows him plenty of speed that he holds in reserve. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019

Hendrix Lapierre Note Can close a two-step gap so fast, it seems to surprise puck carriers. In this case, he jumps up and the lifts the stick, takes the puck cleanly. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Pulls up, changes direction, kicks out a skate to stop a pass, and creates yet another turnover deep in the ozone. He's driving this Drummonville squad nuts on this shift. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Going end-to-end, beats Dumont with a move, then crosses in the ozone and gets clobbered with a high hit. Oooof. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Up the ice like a rocket to backcheck, then puts a shoulder into the jaw of the puck carrier for two minutes in the box. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Chips the puck around the quick Dion and then beats him to the corner and regains puck control. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Summary A great skater who works efficiently but can cover the ice when he needs to. Has a good passing touch and makes good choices with the puck. The team around him in the early part of the season was without a lot of pieces to help him, and it showed. Still, was effective on his shifts, always getting good touches, and he worked hard at both ends of the ice. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Jacob Dion Note Crisp first pass out of his zone. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019

Jacob Dion Note Top PP unit. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Jacob Dion Note Carries from behind his own net to below the goal line at the other end. Wheels and hands to weave through the neutral zone traffic with ease. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Jacob Dion Summary A solid young two-way defenseman who plays a sound game in his end, but uses his feet to get the puck out of the zone. He's hard to pin down in his own end, and if he can't skate the puck out, his outlet passes are safe and accurate. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Thimo Nickl Note Nickl shoves a puck at Mercer, who does his best to make something out of the questionable pass. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019

Thimo Nickl Note Tries to stop a 2-on-1 by dropping to the ice and sliding completely out of the play on his belly. Easy goal for the Chicoutimi attacker. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Thomas Belgarde Note Not much ice time so far, but on that shift he was using his body, showed a little bit of pace with the puck. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
William Dufour Note Looks heavy on his feet. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
William Dufour Note Trying to take a hard backcheck line to cut off a breakaway, but just as he arrives, Charron cuts back and Dufour blows right past him, and Charron buries his shot. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
William Dufour Note Nice backhand pass. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
William Dufour Note In a foot race with Mercer, and loses badly. Mercer made up a good six feet from blue line to blue line. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
William Dufour Note Really needs to work on his skating. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
William Dufour Summary He knows what he supposed to do on the ice, and when he doesn't need to rely on skating he is effective. Otherwise, his skating is a weakness that prevents him from fully utilizing what looks like good hockey sense and okay hands. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Xavier Simoneau Note Footspeed looks above average, but when trying to change gears there is not a lot there. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Xavier Simoneau Note Gets a pass in the high slot and gets a hard wrist shot away with a quick release. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Xavier Simoneau Note Killing penalties and out there on the power play. He's doing everything. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Xavier Simoneau Note Great read to jump into the passing lane, pick off the clearance attempt and go straight in on goal. Tries to fake the shot, but the goalie hangs tight, and gets just enough of Simonteau's shot, and the puck trickles just outside of the post. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Xavier Simoneau Summary Small forward with okay speed but nothing special about his skating. He plays the game well, and as a D+1 I think he's likely to get drafted in the later rounds because he seems to have progressed enough this year to make him a safer bet for some teams. He'll struggle to get a permanent spot in the NHL, I think, because he lacks that dynamic quality to his game that a 5'7 player needs in the top league in the game.

Alex Johnston Note Back is almost parallel to the ice as he's skating. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Alex Johnston Note Turns are wide and slow, and he doesn't look crisp when needing to do a full stop and turn. Agility looking below average. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019

Alex Johnston Note Another quick chance at the net and this time his one-touch shot again goes wide. He's getting there, but not finishing. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Alex Johnston Note Tries a quick shot from below the circle and misses the net. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Alex Johnston Summary At times Johnston looks like a player who will make a difference, but then his skating or decisions fail him. His staight-ahead skating is good, but his turns are not crisp enough, which leaves him slowing on his change of direction and magnifying any poor choices he makes on angles of attack. He often missed the net even when in close, which is a shame because he kept working hard and getting into the spots on the ice where he could make an impact but his hands and feet failed him when he got there. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Brandt Clarke Note Tries to spin a backhand pass out to the point on the powerplay. Not a great choice, almost intercepted for a breakaway. He needed to be smarter with the puck there. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019

Brandt Clarke Note Short, agile lateral movements. He's highly manueverable in tight spaces. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Brandt Clarke Note In the offensive zone, puck on his stick, dips around a defender, closes on net, and a flick of his wrist beats the goaltender from three feet out, but he hits the post. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Brandt Clarke Note Standard setup has him on the left halfboards while on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Brandt Clarke Summary Clarke was involved in all facets of the game, including on the top powerplay unit with a lot of responsibility to work the puck on the left side, He is a skilled puckhandler and a great skater, using his power and edges effectively. Mobile and quick while changing directions, he's able to slightly shift his position efficiently when needed. He looks like a defenseman who plays behind his blue line with the sole intent of regaining possession and pushing play back into the offensive zone. A few of his choices while puckcarrying were a bit over-exuberant and risky, but in general his play was quite sound with and without the puck. He passes well and has a quick release on his shot either in close or from range. A 2021 player to watch closely. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Dominic Mufarreh Note Dump and chase sequence and he goes hard to the end boards to dig for the puck. Good effort, hard work against a couple of opponents. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Dominic Mufarreh Note First step off the faceoff has snap, then a smooth pivot to backwards and turning speed, fast to the boards to chase a puck. Smooth on his feet, like he's always on skates wherever he goes, the rink, dinner, to the movies. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Dominic Mufarreh Note Sees the big hit coming and sidesteps, dodging the hit completely, then turns up ice with complete possession of the puck. That's about the full definition of slippery in action. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Marc Boudreau Note Gets called for interference because he skated through the crease for no reason and essentially slew-footed the goaltender. Accidental? Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Marc Boudreau Note Pivot from the back to front looks clunky. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Marc Boudreau Note Long, full extensions when he drives up ice. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan Del Monte Note Decent speed, skates low with good knee bend, generates power then uses his edges well to maintain momentum while shifting angles. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan Del Monte Note On the bench getting his right hand taped by the trainer. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan Del Monte Note Chasing in his own end, getting turned around, just seems like he was struggling to find a place on that shift. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan Del Monte Note Not fast enough for the angle he took to the puck carrier, and he can't stop him from getting through the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan Del Monte Summary Del Monte has good speed and mechanics but looked like a raw player who has not yet adapted to the speed of play in the OHL. He's a slight player at 158 pounds, but at 16 years of age, he has a lot of time ahead of him to develop. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan O'Rourke Note Good, clean penalty-kill clear from deep in his own end to send the powerplay squad all the way back down the ice. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan O'Rourke Note Playing the left point on the powerplay. Like his puck movement out there. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan O'Rourke Note Skates with his eyes up, doesn't look hurried at all, but well-composed and alert. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan O'Rourke Note On the powerplay, he takes a puck from the left point, carries to the high slot area, then fires a pass back to the left and misses his man by four feet. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan O'Rourke Note Hounding backcheck, he is all over the puck carrier and doing it cleanly. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan O'Rourke Summary Makes quiet impacts on each shift. He plays the game like a high-quality defensive forward, and plays the left point on the top powerplay unit. He's all around the puck and is the type of player that the puck loves to find when he is out there. Smart, simple game that with a bit of polishing will be NHL-caliber. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Note Skating hard to get back, good long strides with clean mechanics, gets his stick out in front. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019

Tyson Foerster Note Coming up ice without the puck, a pass comes that is off target, and he adjusts his skating line to pick up the pass without reaching back or slowing down. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019

Tyson Foerster Note Playing a ton of minutes, and at the end of the period, he's still working hard. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Note Defends by attacking the puck. He's relentless. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Note Shorthanded, teammate creates a turnover and Foerster goes hard with him, pulls up at the far post. A great effort by his teammate who cuts back and then drives to the net and slips the puck to Foerster, who then pots it into an open net. I like Foerster's patience and recognition there, to set up and wait for the play to develop and trusting his teammate to get the job done. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Note Awkward pass at a bad angle that comes into his skates, but he handles it perfectly. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Note On the penalty kill, he comes over the boards like he has been absolutely champing to get out there. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Summary Another quality showing from Foerster. He stood out by his high work-rate with and without the puck, tenaciously attacking on defense and offense. He moves his feet all the time, and shows excellent skating ability that with his size at 6'1 and 183 pounds makes him a force on the ice and a difficult opponent to play against. Has a variety of shots that he will use from the top of the circles in. A quality passer who makes good choices with the puck and rarely looks selfish with the puck. He does not look like a player who will break defenses apart by himself, but he will be a key contributer to a team attack. I like his play a lot and he looks like he will become a possession-driving top six NHL forward. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Vladislav Dvurechenksy Note Nice look to the slot but just misses him man with the hard pass through traffic. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Vladislav Dvurechenksy Note Good puck battle below the net, he's taking on two defenders and holding the puck until help can arrive. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Vladislav Dvurechenksy Summary Did not see much ice time in the game after Barrie fell behind the Soo quickly and their bench got incredibly short. When he was on the ice, he showed good skating and effort, working hard in all zones and moving his feet. A couple of passes looked more deliberate than natural, but in general his game looked okay especially for a big body forward playing in just his fourth OHL game. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019

Anton Lundell Note Finland hits the zone with speed, Lundell going to the slot without the puck, attentive, stick ready, get the pass buts its out in front of him. He reaches out, pulls it back just slightly and snipesa filthy, off-balance wrist shot top corner. He was extended and he still got that puck away so fast and with such power that the puck was in the net as the goalie was just starting to move his glove hand. What a shot.

Anton Lundell Summary A great forward prospect with size and a ton of skill. He competes hard all the time, has what seems to be an insatiable scoring drive, and he is a tremendous skater. When he has the puck, defending teams pull back trying to cut down his opportunities for powering the puck to the net, but his passing and shot are so good that he can punish opponents for giving him too much space. Lundell is the type of player that will draw a lot of pressure in the NHL, because the only way to contain him is to be on top of him. So talented, and he is a special, hungry player.

Topi Niemela Note Under pressure behind his net, he still finds a lane and passes out to the top of the slot and the Finns break out of the zone. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/18/2019
Topi Niemela Note Another good outlet pass through traffic. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/18/2019

Topi Niemela Note Good passer, which he utilizes in all situations. He's not one to hold or skate the puck. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/18/2019
Topi Niemela Summary More of a cautious, stay-at-home defender who makes an excellent first pass. He plays a smart, controlled game in his zone, and will improve on his positioning as his skating improves. Looked poised with the puck, and made good decisions. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/18/2019
Veeti Miettinen Note Knocks a puck down with his hand at the offensive blue line, then settles the puck and fires it on net. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/18/2019

Veeti Miettinen Note Tries a blind clear and puts it straight into the Canadian player at the blue line. He had more time than he realized, I think. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/18/2019
Veeti Miettinen Note Fighting the puck on this shift. It just won't settle and he's chasing it through the neutral zone until he turns it over. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/18/2019
Veeti Miettinen Note Tries a soft pass around the defender but didn't get it through. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/18/2019

Alex Laferriere Note Nearly outreads the US defender to make a fantastic takeaway, but Sanderson is there to save the day. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Alex Laferriere Note US trying to break it out, and Laferriere is backing out of the zone, but vigilant and looking around to check the coverage and the options, reading the potential plays, while others are just watching the puck carrier. He's a highly aware player. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Alex Laferriere Note He is better when he's under pressure, because then he makes smaller, simpler plays. When he has more time, he tends to try a lot and that sometimes costs him. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Alex Laferriere Note Keeping up with Sanderson, but just barely. And Sanderson had the puck. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Alex Laferriere Note Gets out to the point to block a shot. Closed well, stayed up tight. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Alex Laferriere Note Showing off his speed with the puck, drives the zone, cuts to the net, starts to go behind then flicks a behind-the-back pass to try to set up his trailer, who stopped short and the play dies. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Alex Laferriere Note First steps are very good. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Alex Laferriere Note Has the puck , trying to get to the high slot, takes a solid hit from Peterson, but keeps his feet and the puck, shifts to the backhand because he got turned by the hit, slips a pass back to Anderson and sets him up perfectly for a dangerous shot from the hashmarks. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Alex Laferriere Summary He has the size, skating and scoring ability to be a good producing winger in the NHL, but he'll need to learn to play better within his limits. Sometimes, he's trying to do too much, and he was not particularly effective in this game. He did show some flashes of creativity and pure puck skills, but overall, with little help from his teammates, he did not show that well. I have a feeling I wasn't seeing him on his best night and the US U18s are a tough squad to battle. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Brett Berard Note Pushes up to beat the puck to the blue line, keeps it in the zone, backhands to the player on the boards. Fast hands. Good jump. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Brett Berard Note Circles around to the right side, sneaking in behind the penalty killers, handles a tough pass, sends the now-hurried shot wide. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Brett Berard Note Good read from the neutral zone, picks off a poor choice by Lovell, then a nasty snap shot beats the goalie low. Berard got that away in a flash. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Brett Berard Note Lovely cross-ice one-touch pass on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019

Brett Berard Note On the defensive blue line, passes to the driving forward, but puts it in his skates and the run of play turns back into his zone. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Brett Berard Note Chirping and chopping on the edge of the faceoff dot. Fiesty. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Brett Berard Note Looks so comfortable with the puck. He can step, switch back, twirl, handling the puck, then make a 60-foot pass look too easy. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Brett Berard Summary Berard's game is poise and skill, with quality skating abilities thrown in on top. He moves the puck with authority, although he seems more of a distributor than a scorer. His skating gets him into and out of tight spots, and he looks confident that he can escape trouble whenever he needs to. Moves the puck expertly, both in technique and reads, and often finds the player who needs the puck the most. Played well in his zone, but he looked a lot better moving forward. Has a bit of bite to his game, too. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Chase Yoder Note Good speed through the neutral zone, calling for the puck. Gets the puck as he enters the zone, pulls up, hits Hunter Strand just inside the dot, shot almost goes in. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019

Chase Yoder Note Great backcheck, chases down a potential breakaway and steals the puck. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Chase Yoder Summary Played a solid two-way game, and was disruptive in the neutral zone, getting in lanes, picking off passes, using his feet to cause problems for the Buccaneers. He set up some prime chances, and got things done, even if they didn't show on the scoreboard in this game. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Dylan Peterson Note Top powerplay unit, mostly hovering around the middle of the zone. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Dylan Peterson Note Skating is okay as longs as he is on his edges, but just not good stride mechanics at all. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Dylan Peterson Note His shot is hard and fast, even on a no-windup one-touch. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Dylan Peterson Note Tries a redirection but sends the puck way wide of the net. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Dylan Peterson Note He's a mostly vanilla player until he has the puck in the homeplate area, then he comes alive. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Dylan Peterson Note Bad choices off of the puck, either looking to cherry pick, or even backing out of his defensive zone hoping (seemingly) that the player with the puck will try to pass to the blue line. What was that? Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Dylan Peterson Note Good, long-distance pass, diagonal blue line to blue line, hits the headman perfectly. His best pass of the game. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Dylan Peterson Note Another opportunity for a redirection and sends it wide. He was on the move, but that's at least three good feeds that he's missed on. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Dylan Peterson Summary Peterson is a big body that plays his game in the slot, but doesn't look too great away from his comfort zone. He needs to improve his power skating, and often his game seemed pedestrian. He has a good release, even though at times he struggled to get the puck on net. However, when Berard and Beniers set him up, he looked dangerous. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Logan Anderson Note Skating looks okay. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Logan Anderson Note Had Laferriere wide open far side and chose to try to jam it in instead. Too bad. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Luke Tuch Note Tuch with a big interference hit on Salice at the blue line. The puck was already at the circle when Tuch hit him. Ugh. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Note Good defensive posture in the offensive zone, then back to cover the blue line for the pinching defenseman. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Note With the puck at the red line, has speed enough to split two defenders trying to close on him, who then both put their sticks on him, but he keeps at it, and gets a shot away that the goaltender fought off. Draws the penalty. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Note He has jets for days. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Note Takes a pass on the wall at the goal line, walks in, dangles a bit then tries to jam it far side and the goalie barely gets a stick on it. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Note Takes a different pass just to the left of the net and immediately puts it cross-crease on Bordeleau's tape for an open-net goal. Excellent anticipation, vision, read. This kid has offensive instincts pouring out of his ears. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Note Another great read, picks off the pass in the offensive zone, passes behind his back. He's creative, alert, dangerous. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Note Killing penalties, too. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019

Matthew Beniers Note Blocks a shot while on penalty kill duty, then darts out to pick up the puck that rebounded off of his leg.

Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Note Consistently making smart, creative plays and being effective on every shift. He and Thomas Bordeleau are the best players on the ice in this game. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Note Skating is 2.0 or better (70+), He can get deep on his edges, cuts on command, accelerates well. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Note Times a drive-by in front of the netminder perfectly to set up a moving screen. Good save though. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Note Up 3-1 with ten minutes left in the third, he's getting down on the ice to break up what would have been a likely goal-generating pass after a turnover over deep in the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Note One-timer from the low left circle, off a feed from Bordeleau below the goal line. Beniers was ready for the crafty pass, and release a fast one-timer that the goalie never saw. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Note Ten seconds left, up by two goals, diving to try to clear a loose puck out of the zone. The heart and drive on this kid is sensational. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Matthew Beniers Summary Beniers is a multi-tooled top prospect for the 2021 draft. He plays with energy up and down the ice, is a creative playmaker who can rip the puck when necessary. His shot was hard and accurate and flew off his stick. He competes trememdously on every shift and made a mark on this game like no other player on the ice. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Noah Ellis Note Watching the puck in the corner, has to follow Yoder behind the net and then he's too far behind to try to prevent the wraparound attempt. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Noah Ellis Note Powerplay duties, relying on his skating, his passes have snap but his accuracy seems a bit wanting. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Noah Ellis Note Top of the powerplay umbrella on the top unit. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Noah Ellis Note He moves with some pace, has good change of direction. His stickwork seems slow, though. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Vincent Salice Note Shows patience to let the pass come through him to the boards and then play the carom to get a clean lane through the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Vincent Salice Note The waterbug zips through the neutral zone, flips a puck past Tuch, and then gets wallopped. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Vincent Salice Note Skates quite well, but tends to skate large circles through the zone. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Vincent Salice Note In a straight line, he is not fast, maybe just above average at best. He's elusive, but lacks top-end speed. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Brendan Brisson Note He looks like a player who really likes to use his edges, shifting, changing speeds and skating lines, dancing out there. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Brendan Brisson Note Quick shot off a feed from the corner. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Brendan Brisson Note Cutting to the net, pass comes behind him, reaches back, receives it, continues into a 360-degree spin and at the end of it fires a pass back across the crease, and Colangelo finishes. That’s what truly nimble skating and good hands and vision can do. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Brendan Brisson Note Another creative feed, this time a lateral pass back between his legs. He's clever with the puck. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Brendan Brisson Note In a footrace with Bantle who was carrying the puck, and Brisson is matching him with not much effort. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Brendan Brisson Summary Brisson's game is built up from his outstanding skating ability, which allows him to outmaneuver most players on the ice against him. He can evade and turn opponents with little effort, and has the hands necessary to make plays that his feet afford him. Probably the most effective player in the game, involved in the play on nearly every shift, and willing to get his hands a bit dirty. He generally avoided physical contact, but was willing to take a hit when necessary. He looks a lot like a second-line NHL winger. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Carson Bantle Note Stays high in the neutral zone as the puck goes back to his end, and he's far out of the play when Chicago creates a turnover. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020

Carson Bantle Note Going hard through the neutral zone in a puck race. He's digging deep, form looks good but his kick is high and behind him. Still, he has good speed. Should improve with training. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Carson Bantle Note In a footrace with Brisson while carrying the puck, and Brisson matched him with not much effort. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020

Carson Bantle Note Stick pokes the puck away on the forecheck, clean takeaway, steps up and wrists one, glove save. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Carson Bantle Summary A lot to like about his game, including his skating which seems like it will improve. He's big and strong (6'4, 201 pounds), competes hard to get the puck up ice, but he has some bad habits that need to be corrected, particularly with his propensity to float at the blue line looking to go up ice while he teammates battle for pucks in the defensive zone. He also gets his hands up high and dished out some questionable high hits on the boards. In his defense, he's playing on a bad team, and he looked a lot like a player just trying to make something happen. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Gunnarwolfe Fontaine Note Uses his body well to shield the puck as he makes moves. Draws a holding penalty purely because he gained better position than his opponent. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020

Gunnarwolfe Fontaine Note Gains distance on Kirwan through the neutral zone, and has three strides on him by the offensive blue line. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Gunnarwolfe Fontaine Summary Showed several times that he has quick hands and the ability to move through traffic with and without the puck.He is a fairly agile skater who, at 5'8, 174 pounds, has a solid frame that can stand up to contact, and he was willing to go to the crease and battle for his spot. Good offensive instincts, too, with a fine release and an eye for finding open space when he has the puck, sliding into shooting lanes. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020

Matt Coronato Note Crosses the blue line, shovels a backhand pass that leads his man by four feet at least. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Matt Coronato Note Great edge work. Pivots backwards through the neutral zone to open up for a pass, gets the puck, pivots to forward, cuts laterally to the slot, curls on his inside edges and rips a wrist shot past the netminder. Best sequence of the night for him so far. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Ryan Kirwan Note Moves well, but his strides look like his feet are tied together and can't move them away from each other. He has decent speed but could get a lot faster, I think. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Ryan Kirwan Note Short choppy steps cost him most in his acceleration. Just not any push to get going. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020

Sam Colangelo Note Second goal of the period, both from about the same spot: just inside the left circle while cutting to the net. The right-handed shot is lethal from there. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Sean Farrell Note Dangling and circling in the offensive zone, carries out to the blue line but held the puck a bit too long and runs out of space. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Sean Farrell Note Tries a wraparound, but can't complete it. However, the puck goes to Colangelo on the far side who snaps it home from just inside the left circle. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Sean Farrell Note Working hard in the offensive zone, with and without the puck. Not the fastest player, though. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Sean Farrell Note Just coasting in his zone, and then a step too late to get to a shooter. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Sean Farrell Note Tries to skate out of his zone gets trapped between three Madison players and coughs it up. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Sean Farrell Note A lot of shifts through the first two periods where he's just not making an impact at all. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Sean Farrell Note Curls behind the net, tries a cross-crease pass but misses the mark and the errant pass leads to a breakout the other way. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Sean Farrell Summary I was not impressed with him in this game. He spent too much time cruising along the outside of the action. He went several shifts without even touching the puck, despite playing on the top line and spending a good bit of time in the offensive zone. When he did have the puck, he tended to hold it too long and work his way into trouble more than getting out of it. Maybe it was a bad game for him, but I wasn't a fan of this one. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Trey Fechko Note Moving up ice there was no continuity to his stride, instead he had several little hop-like steps. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Trey Fechko Note Lateral movement looks like a struggle when he's skating forward. Too many hitches in his stride. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Trey Fechko Note He so often seems to pop up instead of driving off his back foot. It's like he bounces his up ice with every couple of strides. His skating is making me crazy. Brian Fogarty Chicago vs Madison (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/28/2020
Grant Silianoff Note Does well to pull a puck off the boards, but he goes to the net, he's a step or two slow and the US defenders have time to get into position. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Grant Silianoff Note Takes a good line to the net during a zone entry, slips behind the defender, and taps in a rebound from a far-circle wrist shot for an easy goal. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Grant Silianoff Note Above average to good speed (0.5-1.0; 55-60) Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Grant Silianoff Note Carries into the offensive zone on the right wing, but whiffs on the wrist shot, leaving the puck sitting up for the defender to poke clear. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Jackson Jutting Note Truncated strides. He's not pushing through a full extension at all. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Jake Sanderson Note Legs are long, and his pivot looked odd, like he was dragging one foot on the way around. Long crossovers to generate speed starting backwards skating. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Jake Sanderson Note Near the blue line, puck skips out of the circle, and he jumps to it, taking it behind the net, passes, then hustles back to his point. Nice burst and reaction. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Jake Sanderson Note Straight line, he generates power and speed, but his backwards crossovers still look a bit awkward and swing him wide. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Jake Sanderson Note Dives into the slot, but nothing comes to him, back out again. His acceleration allows him to activate quickly off of the blue line. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Jake Sanderson Note I like his movement along the blue line, showing shot, then passing to his D partner. His movement along the line is not rushed, but he is difficult for the forward to pin down and cover. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Jake Sanderson Note His first push is a weapon. He covers so much ice in a single step. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Jake Sanderson Note Passing is okay. He doesn't put much heat on them even when required, and they seem to be just a tad bit off the mark. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Jake Sanderson Note Tries a check, but is off his line, and he sticks out a leg. Lucky that wasn't called. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Jake Sanderson Note Defending what was basically a broken-play three-on-one, and he positioned himself perfectly to try to cover both passing options, and eventually intercepted a weak pass attempt. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Jake Sanderson Note Handles a tough pass, then puts a hard shot on net. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Jake Sanderson Summary His size combined with his pure skating ability, and his excellent acceleration, are easily NHL level. He reads the play well, taking good lines to find the right spots in his zone. His backward skating is good, though his crossovers take him wide at times instead of a more linear route. He manages the puck well on the powerplay, running the play from the blue line. He did not show a tendancy to rush passes and chose good times to shoot instead of moving the puck. He also showed good timing on pinches and attacks, and the hustle to get back to his position instead of lingering low when there was nothing for him. I'm not convinced of his offensive upside yet, but he's a smart player whose NHL future seems all but certain, in some capacity.

Luke Tuch Note Gets bumped in the back and loses his footing, falling to one knee. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Luke Tuch Note Carries into the offensive zone on the left side, fires a shot high. Good power on that. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Luke Tuch Note Again knocked to the ice without much effort. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Luke Tuch Note Tuch has been starting shoving matches after several stoppages. He's taking some shots at Roughrider players after the whistle, sometimes deserving, sometimes not as much. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Luke Tuch Note Knocked down yet again. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Luke Tuch Note What was that? Blind back pass from just past his blue line into his own end, right to a Cedar Rapids player. Ooof. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Luke Tuch Summary Had little impact on this game. His skating is okay, but at 6'1 and close to 200 pounds, he needs to be much stronger on his skates to get anything done as his carreer move forward. He does not have the hands or feet to be a perimeter player and he did not show the muscle or stability to be effective in traffic. I know his brother is a big, power forward type, but at this point I'm not sure if Luke will develop enough to meet that standard. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Nate Hanley Note Half-hearted body check works, buyt he mostly just stepped into the skater than hit him. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Nate Hanley Note Good display of puck handling, but he had to make those moves because his feet were not good enough to get him out of the pressure situation. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Nikolai Mayorov Note Keeping wide and on the fringes of the play. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Nikolai Mayorov Note Persistent in the offensive zone. Will work on the boards, kick pucks free, battle against bigger players. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Nikolai Mayorov Note Tries to chip the puck around Kleven, takes a bump, can't get around to the puck to recover it. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Nikolai Mayorov Summary Small but sturdy players who does things well in the neutral zone and into the offensive zone. He seems to have a big scoring drive and competitive nature, but without the puck he tends to stay outside. He showed a willingness to be physical on the forecheck, and he has good hands, but he was not a very impactful player in this game. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Note Small but speedy, gets his feet really wide to use his inside edges while gliding. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Note Doing his job, waiting at the defensive-end halfboards, takes the pass and leaves if for the rushing forward. He then follows the rush as the third man in, gets to a loose puck, and wrists it into traffic looking for a deflection. The puck is deflected wide. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Note Takes a hard pass with patience and soft hands. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Note Nice pass into the slot that deserved a better result. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Note The most dangerous forward for the US in this game. He's attacking the net with speed, driving play. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Note Leading a two-on-one, gliding in on the right side, looking pass, looking, then snaps a hard shot that beats the goaltender but not the crossbar. That shot was so deceptive the goaltender never moved, and so hard that the rebound nearly cleared the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Note Doing well on faceoffs, taking key defensive-zone draws on the penalty kill late in a tied game. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Summary Probably the best forward on this iteration of the USNTDP. He is a sub-5'10 player but has excellent skating abilities and could possibly grow a bit taller (his father, former NHLer Sebastian Borderleau, played at 5'11). Thomas has a good understanding of the game and fast reaction speed and vision, allowing him to make good, quick passes to the right options on the ice. He stays responsible on the defensive side of the puck, too. A good player, with offensive upside and the potential to be a top-six NHL forward, though he would likely shift to the wing at some point. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Ty Smilanic Note Pass is a bit behing him, but he reaches back and gathers it in, crosses the blue line, and wrists one just high and wide. Decent power. That shot was close. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Ty Smilanic Note Strong on his skates, working under physical pressure but not giving up his competition for the puck. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Ty Smilanic Note Following the play a lot in this game, having a hard time getting into the thick of the game. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Ty Smilanic Note Poor giveaway in his own zone, just sloppy puck management. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Ty Smilanic Note Pushes a shot on net more than shooting it with any zest. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Ty Smilanic Note There are moments when he has the puck at speed that he looks like he is finally going to do something effective, but then he inevitably makes a poor puck choice or loses it altogether. Nothing is connecting for him. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Ty Smilanic Summary Smilanic's defensive play is likely what will take him furthest in his pro career. He has good speed though, at time looking fast with and without the puck, but he lacked creativity and finishing ability. His passes were not always well-chosen or accurate, and his shot was not the most accurate, either. At this point he is not a first-rounder for me. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Tyler Kleven Note Like his c-cuts to keep his line backwards to the net. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020

Tyler Kleven Note Wrist shot took a long time to load and release and wasn't particularly bothersome for the goalie. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Tyler Kleven Note Tries to slow Mayorov, but mostly misses with an arm check. Still, it was enough to disrupt the play. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Tyler Kleven Note Shows nice hands and coordination as a hard rebound pops right to his feet. He handles it well and flips the puck out of the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Tyler Kleven Note With his size (6'4, 201 pounds), I'd like to see him be more of a physical presence out there, but he isn't. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Tyler Kleven Note Skating is solid and smooth. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Tyler Kleven Note There was a decent hit from Kleven, along the neutral-zone boards. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Tyler Kleven Summary Has a lot of the tools to become an NHL defenseman: Size, mobility, positional awareness in his zone. However, he did not show much offensive ability, often looking too deliberate with his stick either passing or shooting. On top of that, his lack of physicality, either in open ice or deep in his zone, was troublesome. In general, he struggled with timing in this game. He would be a project defenseman, with a good foundation, but will take some developing and time to become an effective pro player. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18 vs Cedar Rapids (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/21/2020
Dominik Bokk Note Not getting many chances in this game as Canada has mostly shut down the German squad, but his release is so fast and uses so little wind up or stick movement, that he can get his shot away at any time. Such a dangerous shooter. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Jan Nijenhuis Note Killing penalties, keeps his feet active, stick in lanes. It looks like he might be crossing up his partner at the top of the box with his movement, but it's hard to tell if that's coaching/situational/intentional or not. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Jan Nijenhuis Note Taking up position right on top of the crease, shoving with Ty Smith to hold his spot, gets called for a crease violation. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Jan Nijenhuis Note Good penalty killer, closes gaps in a hurry, shows a lot of urgency in covering his zones, head constantly swiveling to track where everyone is. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
John Peterka Note Good sweep with his stick pressures the point man, who then turns the puck over to Stutzle. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
John Peterka Note Speed is okay, edges are good. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
John Peterka Note Working hard on defense, keeping his stick active, swiping at puck carriers while moving his feet, lifting sticks, keeping himself between the puck and the goal. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
John Peterka Note At full stride, he's bent way over with his head out in front of his skates. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
John Peterka Note Gets his stick on a puck just inside the defensive zone blue line and creates a clean breakaway. However, with increasing backside pressure from the speedy Liam Foudy, he did not have enough time to try a move, and was forced to try an on-the-fly wrist shot, easily saved. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
John Peterka Note Doing a lot of work in this game, but not being tremendously effective. It's a tough game for the Germans, but I'd like to see more display of skill and creativity from Peterka. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
John Peterka Note There was just a prime example of the difference between Reichel and Peterka, at least in this game: a loose puck sliding towards the blue line in the defensive zone, Reichel is closest to the puck, but he spins away from it trying to get ready to receive a breakout pass, and he leaves the puck in empty space at the top of the circle. Peterka, behind the puck, has to lunge forward to poke to puck up ice and try just to clear the zone. The puck is eventually controlled by the opponents, mostly because Reichel just left the puck. Lazy play from Reichel who should have been more responsible. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
John Peterka Summary Peterka is a sneaky-fast skater who doesn't look like he's going but then he's beating guys to the puck. He plays hard in all three zone with solid, fundamental effort. He'll keep his stick in lanes, keep oriented to the puck, and in the offensive zone he tends to stay in the high-danger area. He is unlikely to beat teams from outside the dots, but has enough size and his hands are quick enough to be able to generate offense in close in traffic. Plays a basic, pro-style game without anything overly fancy or creative. Just a blue-collar-type of player. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Lukas Reichel Note Acceleration is excellent, his first couple of steps take him a long way with little apparent effort. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Lukas Reichel Note Has the puck, falls to his knees skirmishing with the Canadian defender, but he keeps battling, gets back to his feet, keeps at it. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Lukas Reichel Note Staying high in his own zone instead of getting a bit deeper and being more of a part of the defense. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Lukas Reichel Note Looks a little sloppy in his end. Not really putting in a ton of effort on defense. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Lukas Reichel Note I'm getting frustrated at his seeming unwillingness to play defense. It's like the air in the defensive zone is poisonous to him. So he's reaching at pucks, waving at opponents as they pass him, and clearly looking to get out of his zone as fast as he possibly can. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Lukas Reichel Note Excellent agility, switches forward to backward without a hitch or losing speed. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Lukas Reichel Summary A speedy, offense-first player who moves very well with and without the puck. He looked quite one-dimensional in this game, playing with his eyes up ice from the opening puck drop. The Canadian defense seemed intent on making sure that the top German players were well constrained, and Reichel struggled to make anything happen. Unfortunately, because he was so inclined towards offense, he contributed nothing in the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Tim Stutzle Note Stutzle's in-action, at-speed awareness is amazing. He reads plays so well and so quickly, and makes small adjustments to best suit circumstances. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019

Tim Stutzle Note Probably should have taken a shot there with the puck in the circle, but he chose a pass attempt to the far post that nearly connected. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Tim Stutzle Note A moment later he's in the same spot in the left circle, but this time he wrists a hard shot that hits Hofer in the mask. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Tim Stutzle Note Creative passer, with fast hands and a long reach, all of which makes it just that much harder for defenders to cover him. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Tim Stutzle Note Could have been stronger there in trying to stop Foudy from walking in. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Tim Stutzle Note Puck chase to the end boards, widens his glide and lowers his shoulder to drift into the lane of the Canadian player and box him out as they arrive at the puck. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Tim Stutzle Note Uses his body well, plays a smart physical game without necessarily throwing big hits. He leans on players, shoulders them out of plays, uses his strength to win battles. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Tim Stutzle Note He's got that ability that superstars have, to be able to be faster or slower than the game depending on what he needs at the time. It's like he can bend time and space around himself and the gravity of his skills and smarts. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019
Tim Stutzle Summary A born star player whose skills and skating are almost supplemental to his natural hockey intelligence and on-ice awareness. He seems to see everything all the time, and has the stick skills to make crisp, accurate and creative passes without hesitation. His feet get him swiftly to the right spots on the ice in any game situation. On top of that, he has a hard wrist shot that will beat quality goaltending from middle distance. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Germany (2020 WJCs) Video (With Replay) 12/30/2019

Donovan Sebrango Summary Very good on his feet, generally moves the puck well and can either pass or carry it out of his zone. He looks like his top potential is more of a middle-pair, two-way type, but he does look like he has the hockey sense and footwork to make it to the NHL. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jack Quinn Note Moving so well with the puck in the offensive zone, evading pressure, finding the right play. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jack Quinn Note Springs Rossi through the neutral zone with a brilliantly place board pass, getting the puck through traffic, behind the first line of defense, and right into Rossi's path. Wonderful, smart pass. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jack Quinn Note Also killing penalties. He's so fast on his edges and turns that it makes him a particularly good forechecker because he can change angles, covering different lines of attack quickly and forcing puck holders to turn back. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jacob Perreault Note Twice in this early shift where he coasted back toward his own zone instead of backchecking hard. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jacob Perreault Note Slow backhand pass to the middle is picked off by Jarvis. Not a player to turn the puck over to. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jacob Perreault Note Holy cats, what a pass! At the right dot while the puck is in the right corner. As Rossi works the puck out of the corner, Perreault slides backwards to the left-side circle. Rossi spots him, passes, and Perreault then one-touch passes across the grain to Quinn at the far post for an easy tip in. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jacob Perreault Note Another chance to see his excellent vision as he backhands a hard pass thought the slot to the far circle. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jacob Perreault Note Has really settled into this game. Early on he was making good reads and showing his vision, now late in the second period, he's doing the same but his reaction speed is better and his passes crisper and more accurate, and he's far more engaged in the play at both ends. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jake Neighbors Note Good puck mover, makes passes look immediate and simple. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jamie Drysdale Note Leads the rush after a turnover, carries into the offensive zone, drops it off to his left, then goes to the net without the puck. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jamie Drysdale Note Blast slapshot from the blue line looked like it was going to knock the goaltender over backward. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jeremie Poirier Note Now it's Poirier's turn to carry the puck through the neutral zone, and when he enters the zone, he takes a wrist shot, blocked, then he chases down the puck to the boards and keeps the play going. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jeremie Poirier Note Buzzing in the offensive zone. Fires a wrist shot from the low circle, then explodes out to the slot to lift Coe's stick and take the puck back. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jeremie Poirier Note Extemely calm with the puck. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jeremie Poirier Note Does well to handle Bourque and prevent a quality chance. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jeremie Poirier Note Leading the rush, eases the puck out to his right, then snaps it back one-handed and steps around Scheider for a clean look at goal. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Jeremie Poirier Note Never seems to be chasing the play at all. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Justin Sourdif Note Tries to skate the puck into the offensive zone, crosses the line but gets rubbed off on the right-wing boards. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Justin Sourdif Note Could have worked harder on the back check. He was the last one back into the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Justin Sourdif Note Another instance where he looked only mildly interested in back checking. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kaiden Guhle Note Throws a nice hit standing up the attacker at the blue line. Good physical contact early in the game. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kaiden Guhle Note Just lasered a wrist shot from above the hash marks and beats the goaltender over his right shoulder. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kaiden Guhle Note Tracks the fleet-footed Mercer, then positions and turns Mercer to the boards, then pins him. Guhle looks dominant against these top prospects. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kaiden Guhle Note He's really quick over five to ten feet. Closes gaps in an instant and can turn and go like a bolt. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kaiden Guhle Note Skates hard without the puck into the slot, and Jarvis hits him with a nice pass, but Guhle's shot was stopped by the netminder. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kaiden Guhle Note Times a pressure move into the offensive zone remarkably well and stops a breakout in its tracks. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kaiden Guhle Note Bodies up Byfield by digging into his chest and puts Byfield on his butt. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kaiden Guhle Summary Guhle was perhaps the most impactful per-square-foot player in this game, playing against some of the best his age group has on offer. In his end, he was decisive, quick to shut down opponents with his feet or his physicality. He had the skating ability to match the speed of fast forwards, and prevent them from getting on their lines of attack. He played just as hard in the neutral and offensive zone and was effective in engaging in the offense, as well. What was most impressive was his decision making and the speed with which he executed those decisions. Whether pinching, joining the attack or retreating to his own end, his choices looked nearly flawless. A top defender in this draft class that has some tremendous blueliner talent. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kasper Puutio Note Lateral movement and change of direction are good, allows him to switch assignments without losing contact. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kasper Puutio Note Covering Lafreniere fairly well, but bites on a shot fake and Lafenniere slides left into a now-open shooting lane, and the rest was easy. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kasper Puutio Note Throws a good check at the neutral zone boards. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kasper Puutio Note Can’t prevent Jarvis from turning the corner, but he is able to reach out and sweep the puck off Jarvis's stick at the last second. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kasper Puutio Note Reads the cross-ice pass attempt in the neutral zone and breaks it up. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kasper Puutio Note Uses his shoulder to drive Greig off the 50/50 chance. Smart physicality there. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kasper Puutio Note Not afraid to carry the puck into the offensive zone. Doesn't shine once he gets there, but he can gain the zone and look for help. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Kasper Puutio Summary Kind of hit and miss in the game against some elite age-group competition. He handled himself well, but made a few mistakes in his own end and a couple of times tried to do too much when he was up ice. He moves his feet, is willing to use his body to alter play in the back two-thirds. He lacks offensive creativity and looks a bit out of his depth in the offensive zone, but he is effective otherwise. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Lukas Cormier Note Backwards skating is smooth, he's calling out assignments, then does well to lift Jarvis's stick and then move the puck out of danger. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Lukas Cormier Note Shows the puck to the forechecker, then snaps it back and floats a nicely weighted pass to his defensive partner. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Lukas Cormier Note Good puckhandler, disguises puck movement, uses his hands to keep the puck away from pokes and slashes. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Lukas Cormier Note Has a lot of confidence joining the attack. That time he tried to carry between three penalty killers and coughs up the puck. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Lukas Cormier Note Skating looks great with the puck, fluid, multidimensional. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Lukas Cormier Note He's flashy as he moves up ice, but much more responsible in his own end. Could improve on his reads a bit, of course, but he's generally solid back there. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Lukas Cormier Note Swoops in to grab a puck in the offensive zone, then finds Quinn open on the far side, but Quinn looked surprised by the pass and missed it. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Lukas Cormier Note Another excellent read, he steps up and not only stops the pass, but he one-touches it forward right on to Neighbors' stick to start a rush. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Lukas Cormier Note Deep in his own end, corrals the puck, ducks and changes direction to absorb a hit from the forechecker, keeps possession. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Lukas Cormier Note Having a bit of an adventure in his end on this shift, but he's recovering quickly and still preventing chances. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Lukas Cormier Summary Cormier was active and enganged throughout the entire game. His skating was stellar, and he was elusive with the puck. He had good awareness in his end, making several good reads to break up plays. He had a couple of good, hard shots from outside, and more than once changed the pace of his shot to give the net-front guys a chance for a deflection. He plays a smart game, and although he needs some polishing to smooth out some risk-taking, he looks like a certain NHL player and a potential desirable powerplay blueliner. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Luke Evangelista Note Goes behind the net, reverses and shakes to defender, carries out to the bottom of the circle and feathers a pass to Poirier who one-times a slapshot top corner, bar down. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Luke Evangelista Note Fast with the puck into the zone, but throws a weak backhand shot past the far post. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Luke Evangelista Note Good choice in his own zone to curl back behind the net instead of forcing something towards the blue line. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Luke Evangelista Note Tries to drag the puck around Schneider, but a poke check from the defender breaks it up. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Marco Rossi Note When Rossi has the puck, even some of the best CHL players of his draft class have a difficult time stopping or even slowing him from making the plays that he wants to make. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Mavrik Bourque Note Can really skate. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Mavrik Bourque Note Constantly on the move. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020

Mavrik Bourque Note Beats Poirier to a loose puck then turns for a sharp-angle shot. Poirier angled him away from the net. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Mavrik Bourque Note On the left side boards, the right-handed shot does a good job turning his upper body and collecting the puck as it comes up the boards. He did that twice on the same shift. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Mavrik Bourque Note Left hand on his stick, he is able to pull the puck one-handed back behind him while holding off a defender with his right arm, and gets the puck back to Lafreniere. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ozzy Wiesblatt Note Moving through the neutral and offensive zones, eyes on his right winger with the puck, moderating his speed in order to remain in an open pocket. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ozzy Wiesblatt Note Just ripped two cross-ice passes through the slot on the powerplay. Both passes were hard enough to get through all of the traffic but were not quite on target. High-vision passes though. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ozzy Wiesblatt Note Outside-inside move beats one guy but not the second one. Nice hands, though. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ozzy Wiesblatt Note A half-step off of Zary's pace there, puts Wiesblatt at good to very good (1.0 to 1.5; 60-65). Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ozzy Wiesblatt Note Does well at speed to slide just a half-step to his left to avoid what could have been a powerful check at the blue line. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ridly Greig Note Smart drop to Zary with one touch. His play was the second in a beautiful four-man scoring play. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ridly Greig Note A step or two slower than O'Rourke (who had the puck) but he pushed hard to get into position, had his head up reading the play the entire sequence. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ridly Greig Note Mostly quiet in this game, but he just found himself a last-second chance at the net. His anticipation got him the opportunity, but the goalie stopped him. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ridly Greig Note Jumps into a gap to the loose puck and fires it home. [The goal was disallowed for interference, but the read and jump by Greig was excellent]. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ridly Greig Note Gets a clean breakaway, but his simple attempt is easily stopped. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ryan Francis Note Manuevers well, good burst to attack the puck. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ryan Francis Note Killing penalties, moving and responsibly maintaining his assignments at the top of the box. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ryan Francis Note Hits the puck carrier at the boards and he takes his man out of the play. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ryan Francis Note Looked a bit awkward in backwards transition there. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ryan Francis Note Good, simple play to clear his zone after a long shift pinned in his own end. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Ryan Francis Note Hard skating after a long defensive shift gets him to the front of the net and a chance. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Seth Jarvis Note Picks off a Perreault pass and goes fast up the ice. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Seth Jarvis Note With Rossi forechecking against him, he turns back, hesitates, then somehow flicks the puck backwards to a teammate. I watched the replay three times before I could figure out how he did that. It was almost like he left it and let Rossi skate past, but he pushed it a bit to his right, as well. Tricksy, that was. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Thimo Nickl Note Not seeing much out of him in this game, and he just made a horrible shift change decision that allowed a clean two-on-zero and an easy goal against. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Thimo Nickl Note Tries to hit Lafreniere behind the net, and gets nothing but a shadow. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Tyson Foerster Note Hard wrist shot catches the goalie leaning off his line, and the accurate shot beats him short side. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Vasily Ponomarev Note Swings his shoulders back and forth when hie's skating up ice, with both hands on his stick. Looks quite awkward and he's not getting much power through his legs. Needs to work on his skating mechanics. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Vasily Ponomarev Note Quick, happy feet. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Vasily Ponomarev Note Looks to pass from the neutral zone boards but there is nobody there. The puck glides deep into the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Vasily Ponomarev Note Skating hard on this shift. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Vasily Ponomarev Note Tries to split two defenders, loses control. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Will Cuylle Note Throws a hit late and gets called for it. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Will Cuylle Note Tries a hard turn, loses his balance a little, then his acceleration looks a bit clumsy. Wasn't digging his blades into the ice. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Will Cuylle Note Hard, physical play on the boards in the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game (CHL) Video (With Replay) 1/16/2020
Christian Krygier Note The twins are tall and rangy, but move well on their long, thinnish legs. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Christian Krygier Note Good speed and transitions on his edges. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Cole Krygier Note The twins are tall and rangy, but move well on their long, thinnish legs. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Cole Krygier Note Gets a lot of leverage on his wrist shot. Slow to release, but good power on it. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Dylan Holloway Note Decent speed coming up the ice with the puck. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Dylan Holloway Note His hands and stickwork are fast, faster than his feet seem to be, but its hard to tell because right now he's not moving his feet much. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Dylan Holloway Note Corals a puck while gliding through the slot, but he tries to deke one too many times and loses the puck. Not the best opening shift for Holloway. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Dylan Holloway Note Coming down the left side, tries to drag the puck and step right, but he loses the handle again. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Dylan Holloway Note Behind the net, tries to go to a lacrosse move, and loses the puck. That's at least three clean turnovers in the first twelve minutes of play. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Dylan Holloway Note Soft, well-elevated toss to his defenseman to avoid forecheck pressure. His hands look good when he simplifies the play. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Dylan Holloway Note Tries again to pull right and loses the puck. Come on. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Dylan Holloway Note Looks mostly disinterested in helping out in his own end. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Dylan Holloway Note Quick little backhand pass in the corner. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Dylan Holloway Summary Not a great game for Holloway. He is a quick player who excels with his feet in small areas, but lacks a true high-gear straight-line speed. His hands are fast, but too often he tried to do too much, and was unsuccessful most of those times. He needs to use his teammates more, especially on a Badgers team that is so talented. When he played a more simple game, he was much better. Also, he looked quite apathetic in his own end. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Josh Nodler Note Moves very well, quick, ducks his shoulder to slip underneath taller players. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Josh Nodler Note Great recognition that Holloway was going to try the lacrosse move, and he chopped down on the puck and knocked it away from Holloway's stick as he was lifting it. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Josh Nodler Note Excellent one-touch feed to the low slot for a grade A chance denied by a flashing left pad. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Owen Lindmark Note Killing penalties, blocks a shot, shows decent acceleration, lots of smart, contained defensive play. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Owen Lindmark Note Keeping his stick and feet active on the penalty kill, this time deflecting a pass and then going hard to track it out to the point. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Owen Lindmark Note Lifts a stick to prevent a one-time attempt by Nodler. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Owen Lindmark Note Reaches out and hooks a Michigan State player who had a clear path from the corner to the crease. Not the worst penalty. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Owen Lindmark Note I like his acceleration. He can close gaps and win short races to the puck most of the time. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Owen Lindmark Note Sharp pass from the boards to the slot, right on the tape. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Owen Lindmark Note Good job to get down and block a slap shot from the point. He takes good lines out to the puck in his own zone, always staying between the puck and his net. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Owen Lindmark Summary Smart defensive player who looks highly attuned to his responsiblitity and role in his own end. He has solid acceleration with good burst in his first steps, which allows him to use his awareness of play to make to correct choices and execute them quickly. He did not, however, generate offensive and looked rather constrained outside of his own end. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Patrick Khodorenko Note Uses his edges to do most of his skating. His first step to two seem slow and heavy. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Patrick Khodorenko Note At speed, he shows good pace and power, it just takes him a while to get up to speed. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Patrick Khodorenko Note Just passed to no one. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Patrick Khodorenko Note Twice he has fallen on the same shift, at each end of the ice. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Patrick Khodorenko Note Top of the right circle on the powerplay, hols the puck, then tries to hit the back door but looked that pass the whole way there, and it was easily read and deflected out to the boards by Lindmark. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Patrick Khodorenko Note As long as he's moving, his mobility is okay as far as getting good dig on his edges, gliding to spots, staying in open spaces. When he's at a stand still, it's hard for him to get going, and he ends up just reaching for plays with his stick instead of moving to them. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Patrick Khodorenko Note Would like to see him get in the slot/crease area more. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Patrick Khodorenko Note Deep in his own end, gets a partial hip check in against the puck carrier on the end boards. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Patrick Khodorenko Summary There are things to like in the fourth-year senior's game. He has a sturdy frame at 6'0, 201 pounds and good offensive instincts for choosing between passing and shooting and finding open spots in the offensive zone. He has a good scoring drive, too, so he's always looking to make a play. However, his skating is below average when he's flatfooted, and that limited his effectiveness at several moments in the game. As noted, on the move he's capable of getting around the ice well on his skates, and has a fairly powerful stride at speed. I am concerned, however, that his lack of initial footspeed will be a massive limiting factor as he progresses into professional play next year. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Ryder Donovan Note Tries to reverse the puck in the corner, but his execution was much to slow and the defenseman sealed him off. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Ryder Donovan Note Skating is pretty average. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020
Ryder Donovan Note Lanky, looks awkward skating because he seems all pointy angles. Turns are okay. Brian Fogarty Michigan State vs Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 1/27/2020

Adam Kydd Note First step or two are a bit sluggish. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Adam Kydd Note One-timer fails to connect. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Ben King Note Hard pass from the boards looking for the backdoor play, but Sorenson can't get his stick down to it. If Sorenson would have had his stick on the ice, that was an easy tap-in goal. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Ben King Note Swoops in to steal a drop pass and go the other way with it, beginning a partial two-on-one. Up the left side, slows as the second defender gets back, and then passes to the trailer. Smart, simple play. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Ben King Note At the offensive blue line while Calgary is trying to break out. A clearance attempt comes at him and he tries to kick it, misses, and a Calgary forward gets a 50/50 chance against the last man back. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Ben King Note Not the flashiest of puck handlers. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020

Ben King Note Playing low corner boards on the poweplay and the play is going through him. He's doing a good job holding and distributing, but Calgary is not pressuring him at all. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Ben King Note Too stationary while on the penalty kill. Just standing still at the top of the box. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Ben King Note Everything seems a bit too deliberate. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Ben King Summary There was nothing to dislike in King's game, but nothing remarkable at this stage, either. His skating is okay, a bit above average. The biggest problem I saw in this game was that he seemed to take a beat too long to execute everything he tried. It's noticeable at this level, but will become more pronounced moving forward if he can't improve his play processing speed. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Christopher Sedoff Note Powerplay defender at the point. Skating the puck out of his zone, his stride is smooth, crossovers while carrying the puck look seamless and efficient. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Christopher Sedoff Note Backpass off the boards to the trailer. Creative and interesting. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Christopher Sedoff Note Steps up to the puck carrier, closing the gap and taking away options. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Christopher Sedoff Note Good skater, fluid transitions and mobility, not afraid to skate the puck up ice. Speed gives him the time to recover after pinching in. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Christopher Sedoff Note One-time slapshot as he skates into the puck just over the offensive blue line. Hard shot, on net. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Christopher Sedoff Note Adept at handling pucks bouncing out at him at the blue line. He calmly catches them on his stick and redistributes effectively. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Christopher Sedoff Note Dips a shoulder and blows right past the forechecker. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Christopher Sedoff Note Cool under pressure. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Christopher Sedoff Note A little off balance because he was leaning out too far trying lunge into the body of the puck carrier. He misses the attempt and stumbles, and the puck carrier gets around him to feed Focht in the slot for a goal. Sedoff's worst moment of the game. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Christopher Sedoff Summary He was one of Red Deer's prime defenders, playing a lot of quality minutes in this game. He skates very well, is manueverable laterally and backwards, and he gets the puck up ice either passing or skating. He'll get in the rush and his shot is good. He plays reliable positional defense and although he doesn't play a very physical game, he uses his positioning to keep attackers away from the net. Needs more development, for sure, but a decent defensive prospect who could develop an adequate two-way game for the AHL and potentially NHL level, likely on a bottom pair. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Evan Toth Note Pass in close to his skates and he can't find it or handle it. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Evan Toth Note Passes are good, maybe the best aspect of his game. Even long passes are accurate and weighted appropriately. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Jayden Grubbe Note Very good speed with the puck through the neutral zone, builds space by pulling away from the backchecker. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Jayden Grubbe Note In the slot area, facing the puck at the point, working hard on the powerplay. Keeps his feet active. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Jayden Grubbe Note Hustles up ice to try to win a puck. Lots of effort in Grubbe's game. Battling hard in the corner after he and defender reach the puck together. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Jayden Grubbe Note Top powerplay unit. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Jayden Grubbe Note Saucers a pass backhand to his linemate to keep the rush alive. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Jayden Grubbe Note Always seems to be around the puck and involved in the play. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Jayden Grubbe Summary An interesting prospect who played an engaged and active game. He has good speed and agility, getting up ice quickly with and without the puck. He doesn't have the best finishing ability (as seen in his 5 goals in 43 games) he does drive the play up ice and spends a lot more time in the offensive zone than he does in the defensive zone. Given time and perhaps more confidence, he could become a good middle-pair-type prospect. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Josh Medernach Note Playing in his second-ever WHL game. He has good turning and edgework, good acceleration, too. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Josh Medernach Note Looks fairly composed for his second Major Junior-level game. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Keaton Sorenson Note Ben King sends him a hard pass from the boards looking for the backdoor play, but Sorenson can't get his stick down to it. If Sorenson would have had his stick on the ice, that was an easy tap-in goal. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Keaton Sorenson Note Soft backhand saucer pass trying to reach a teammate at the red line, but the pass falls short and is turned over to Calgary. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Keaton Sorenson Note Tries to get the puck behind the defense with a bounce pass off the boards, but that, too, is off target. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Keaton Sorenson Note A step off the pace as the puck it rushed up ice by Calgary. He moves well in traffic, but his top-end speed is only good to very good. (1.0-1.5, or 60-65) Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Keaton Sorenson Note Intercepts a pass, hits the zone, and then skates right past his own puck. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Keaton Sorenson Note Clear shot from just inside the circle at the hash marks and he got little on it, and the puck just dribbles up to the goaltender. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Keaton Sorenson Note Goes hard to the net, draws a penalty. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Keaton Sorenson Summary Works hard, moves his feet, has agility and can carve his way through traffic, but his game seems scattered. He lacks a top-end gear making him slower than his agility makes him seem at first. He lacks consistency and looks impatient at times. He will need to slow his game down and stop rushing everything in order to become more effective. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Luke Prokop Note Tall, looks thin but he's not (6'4, 219 pounds is not thin). Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Luke Prokop Note Skates tremedously well for a young guy with his kind of height. Edges, pivots are fluid, speed is quality. Lateral moves are effortless and efficient. Good balance, too, another good trait for someone that tall. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Luke Prokop Note When he has the puck in his zone he's scanning the ice for options, and he typically picks out the right one and completes the breakout pass. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Luke Prokop Note Slapshot on net with good power. Not a booming shot but decent. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Luke Prokop Note Does well to get back to stop a partial breakaway and calmly pokes the puck off the attacker's stick from the side. Good, clean play. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Luke Prokop Note Takes a big hit to protect the puck in his own end. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Luke Prokop Note Big long strides cover distance with ease. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Luke Prokop Summary Great size at 6'4, 218 pounds, and is an excellent skater for a young player as big as he is. Plays a smart and composed defensive game in his end, and uses his size and mobility well to force plays to the boards, pin players behind the net, or with the puck, make safe plays under pressure. At this point, he does not pose much of a threat at the offensive end, despite his quality passing ability. He slings his wrist shot more than he snaps it, and his slap shot has some power but not enough to intimidate goaltenders at this point. He seems like a well-rounded player, so if the offensive develops, he could work his way onto an NHL roster. Especially with his size and skating. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Riley Fiddler-Schultz Note Half a step slower than Jayden Grubbe there. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Riley Fiddler-Schultz Note Nonchalant pass, no pressure, but puts it into Toth's skates a bit. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Riley Fiddler-Schultz Note Drives the puck into the offensive zone, uses his left arm to hold off the opposing player, tries to turn to the net, but it bumped off course, so he pulls up, settles, makes a nice pass to the open man at the slot. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Riley Fiddler-Schultz Note Accelerates to catch up with the puck carrier leaving the corner. Good first steps that have improved over the past year. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Riley Fiddler-Schultz Note Nice little movement through some slot traffic, backhands a nifty pass to the left, but Kastelic was turning the wrong way and never saw the puck. Too bad. That was a nice play by Fiddler-Schultz squandered. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Riley Fiddler-Schultz Summary Active at both ends, and a good penalty killer who uses his quickness to be effective in any situation. He forechecks hard, but has only above average straightline speed at best. Was not a dangerous offensive threat with the puck in this game, and he missed some opportunities to generate chances. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Sean Tschigerl Note Uses his edges to adjust his angle, then a quick stick deflects a pass into the corner. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Sean Tschigerl Note Very good speed, maybe even better. (1.5-2.0, or 65-70) Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Sean Tschigerl Note Carries the puck through the neutral zone with speed, has his eyes up, but looking at the puck a good bit, too. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Sean Tschigerl Note Established in the offensive zone, he's making good short passes through tight spaces. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Sean Tschigerl Note I like his stride. It's efficient and smooth without wasted movements. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Sean Tschigerl Note Competes hard, always putting in solid effort. Follows his shot to the net for second chances. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Sean Tschigerl Note Shoulder-to-shoulder with Ethan Sakowich (who has a couple of inches and a few pounds on him), and Tschigerl loses his feet and spills onto the ice. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Sean Tschigerl Note Nice hit along the boards in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Sean Tschigerl Note Solid power move at speed, gets around the defender and drives the front of the net. Goalie made a nice save, but that was a good move from Tschigerl. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Sean Tschigerl Summary Tschigerl has very good or better speed, shows decent lateral quickness and edgework with tight turns and reaction speed. Shows a tenacity at both ends that will serve him well as he eventually progresses into professional hockey. His shot in this game looked okay, but he didn't get a lot of clean chances. At this point, he seems like a player relying primarily on his skating to make an impact on the game, but he also looks like a player that could improve his offensive game as he develops and gets more ice time and quality opportunities. A potential middle-six winger with some offensive upside. Brian Fogarty Red Deer vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/1/2020
Brett Harrison Note In the slot in traffic, taking bumps and crosschecks but mostly keeping his balance. The puck lands at his feet and he puts it straight on net. Good glove stopped him but he got that shot away fast. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Brett Harrison Note Taking draws in the defensive end and winning them regularly. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Brett Harrison Note Does well to get a stick lift in on Pinchuk as a bouncing puck came to them, then he turns to the attack. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Brett Harrison Note Good job to hold his spot on the half-boards and keep the clearance attempt in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Brett Harrison Note Killing penalties. Playing in all situations. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Brett Harrison Note Breakout pass to the left wing at the red line, put it in the skates. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Brett Harrison Note Chips a puck ahead of him over the blue line and charges after it, got a good bounce, ducks around the defender and draws a penalty shot. Excellent effort to make that entire sequence happen. For the penalty shot, he comes in slow, doesn't try much, then takes a wrist shot but there was just no room there. Saved by patient positioning. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Brett Harrison Note Back hand roof at close to full speed. Solid move, superb finish. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Brett Harrison Summary Plays an honest game by sticking to fundamentals of play at both ends. He will go the front of the net, stays positionally aware on defense, and is a reliable faceoff man in his own zone. On top of that, he has good to very good speed, showed decent agility, and has a high level of scoring drive and touch around the net. As he develops he should be able to refine and improve his pro-style play. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Daniel Michaud Note Speed is relatively similar to McKinney's. About good level at this point (1.0, or maybe a 60 on the 80-20 scale), but not a lot more at this stage. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Daniel Michaud Note Hands look hard sometimes when trying to take in crisp passes in they're a little off. He's stopping the puck than receiving it. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Daniel Michaud Note Tries to force a pass out of his zone and hit a Kingston player with it. He has time, but didn't use it. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Dawson McKinney Note Stellar read and a backwards, no-look, between-the-legs feed to Wright for the goal. That was an instant situational read. He never saw Wright but knew where he was. Great awareness of where the play was and where Wright was going to be. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Dawson McKinney Note Good extension mechanics, but he's more bent over than getting good deep knoe bend and centered balance. He can get more power from his sound mechanical stride. Just a little work and he'll improve on his already above average speed. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Dawson McKinney Note Slower that the puck carrier, losing ground as he chases through the neutral zone, looking a good stride or two off the pace. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Francesco Arcuri Note Speed looks mostly average, but he's not putting in much effort so it's hard to get an early read. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Francesco Arcuri Note Looks very lean and tentative. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Francesco Arcuri Note Looking lost in his own end. He seems like he's willing to play defense, but also seems like he's having a hard time tracking the play and keeping up with the pace of the game. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Martin Chromiak Note Tries a cross-ice pass through the neutral zone but puts it behind Wright, who waits to see if the puck will come to him off the carom, but it just won't connect. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Martin Chromiak Note When a puck kicked free out of his defensive zone, Chromiak just blew past Nico Gross and the far side defender, gets to the puck, settlles it on the fly (and wow, was he flying) for a clear breakaway. His deke put the Lemiuex down, but the Oshawa netminder still managed to flail and get a piece and the puck flutters over the bar. That was a show of speed right there. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Martin Chromiak Note A rare bit of sloppy puck movement by Tomasino gifts Chromiak with a puck right at the crease. With almost zero time, Chromiak pulls off a spinning backhand shot attempt that was saved. It was a creative play from pure reaction. I liked it. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Martin Chromiak Note I want to see him go again, as he did chasing down the puck in the first period. Haven't seen that full-out skating effort since then. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Martin Chromiak Note Full control in his own end, tries a long diagonal pass to the far side blue line and misses, turning the puck over the defender at the red line. Something more controlled and simple there would have been a superior play. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Martin Chromiak Note Picks off a clearance attempt, turns inside and finds Wright wide open in the right-side circle. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Martin Chromiak Note This time, Wright picks off a mishandled puck on the right side and immediately passes to Chromiak rushing the net, and the Czech rips it home going to a knee to finish. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Martin Chromiak Summary Played the first half of the season in the top Slovakian league, and that experience was evident in his calm, professional play on the ice. He has tremendous straight line speed when he uses it, and good edgework and lateral mobility. He needs some work on accuracy of passing and some of his choices made it look like he was still adjusting to the North American game. He looks bigger on the ice than his 6'0, 183-pound listing. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Nick Wong Note Stride is short and choppy. He kicks high without much extension. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Nick Wong Note Playing defense by reaching way out with his stick and apperently hoping that it will affect play somehow. Move your feet! Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Nick Wong Note Has okay speed considering his choppy stride. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Nick Wong Note Bringing the puck in on the left side, looks to the middle then wrists one short side that went into the side netting. Good misdirection play with his head, but the shot was just barely wide. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Oliver Suni Note Looks wide and thick, but he has surprising speed at 6'2, 187 pounds. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Oliver Suni Note Careless back pass from the defensive blue line back into his zone left a puck sitting for Shane Wright, whom Suni obviously didn't see. Suni just gave the most dangerous player on the ice a free look on goal. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Oliver Suni Note Suni is just not making an impact in the game. In all fairness, he recently returned from a lengthy injury absence, but I'd like to see more from him. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Oliver Suni Note On the top powerplay unit, playing at the net. Puck scramble and he pops it into the net. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Oliver Suni Note Suni again showing speed with the puck, but nothing comes of it as he drives toward the net but loses the puck on a deke attempt. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Oliver Suni Note The third and final touch of a tic-tac-toe play, but a great save robbed him. Suni read that entire play well and got to the perfect spot to finish. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Oliver Suni Note Looks his best carrying the puck through the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Oliver Suni Summary Has good speed and is especially effective skating the puck up ice. Several aspects of his game seemed out of sync, but considering that he had just returned from a seven-week injury, it's impossible to judge that as a trait or rust. Will need additional viewings. At times he did seem more effective, and he was often in the right place on ice. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Phillip Tomasino Note Not watching him this game, but the puck wizard just keeps making dazzling plays, feeding players everywhere and generating offense on every shift. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note In the slot while the puck is low at the net, and he's ducking and peaking around traffic trying to get a clean look at how the play is developing. That's a high level of engagement. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Hard lean for a fast turn at low speed as he sees a potential chance, and when Chromiak gets his the puck, he's in great position right at the crease and he gets an elevated shot away in a flash that beats the goaltender from three or four feet out. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Fast, edgy, aggressive on the forecheck. He uses his speed to gain on players from behind trying to escape. Takes good angles of forecheck attack. He looks determined to get the puck back for his team. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Backchecking hard, angles the puckcarrier away from the middle and forces him out to the boards. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Steps into a small open space at the circle, gets a nice feed from Wisdom from behind the net, and slaps a one-touch snap shot that misses wide by mayve an inch or two. He beat the goalie clean. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note His first steps off of a slow glide are powerful and effective. He covers a lot of ice in an instant with just two or three strides. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Beginning to feel like doesn't know how to just glide because he is always driving his feet. He's fast everywhere without the puck, always on the move, always getting ot the best spot on the ice. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Rocket of a wrist shot with a release so fast that he can make life hard for a goaltender, even when he's out at the top of the circle and the goalie has clear line of sight. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Tries a stretch pass from his own blue line, but it gets picked off. Wright quickly made up for it, however, by hounding the player trying to enter Wright's zone. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note He keeps his stick active, and has made several good stick checks in the game that have either disrupted opponent attacks or outright created turnovers. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note His straightline skating is almost picture perfect. Fully extended, skates come up maybe two or three inches off the ice, and fast return. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Faceoff at the right dot in the offensive zone. Wright gets booted, and lines up on the inside. Puck comes out to the point, and the defender carries the puck down deep into the corneer. What does Wright do? Backs out to the point to cover the point for the attacking defender. It would have been so easy to camp out and wait for a chance to come to him from the corner, but Wright made the right choice and the smarter play. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Shakes Tomasino with a 180 move that left the agile Tomasino going the wrong way. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Puck gets tangled at his feet, kicks it to his stick as he's turning away from the defender, keeps his turn until he can pass to Chromiak in the corner. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note His first steps with the puck are explosive. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Wrists one from above the slot and breaks the goaltender's mask. Goaltender feeling his jaw after that. A wrist shot. From distance. Wow. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Off the feed from Chromiak, at the circle just inside the dot, goalie squared up and ready, and Wright just blows it past the netminder with a wrist shot over the glove hand. The puck was in the net before the goalie moved his glove. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Dumps the puck carrier with a good, clean hit. What can this kid not do perfectly? And as I wrote that note, he blocked a shot. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Winning faceoffs fairly consistently. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Note Tries a 270-degree spinning one-timer from the left circle that misses the far side wide by six inches or so. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Shane Wright Summary There is not enough space in a simple summary to describe how good a player Wright is just a month into his 16th year. He plays fast, hard and skillfully. He already has a pro build at 6'0 and 187 pounds, and aside from Tomasino, was easily the best player on the ice. Sure to be the #1 pick of the 2022 draft. He just has all the tools and the work rate, game awareness and pace to be a superstar NHL player. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note Quick with good first few steps. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note Sees his defenseman go in deep, so he covers the right point. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note Gets the puck behind the net, head up looking for options, tries a pass out to the point but misses his man and sends the puck all the back deep into his own end. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note I like his attention on the defensive side. He chooses safety over charging up ice, anticipates the defensive need before reaching for offensive risks. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note Pivots are so fast and seamless. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note Enters the zone and drops a pass to Tomasino, then does well to get to the net without the puck, keep his stick on the ice, and make a target for Tomasino. Of course, Tomasino hits his tape with a brilliant deke-tuck-saucer pass and Tullio gets an easy tap-in goal. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note Tries a sharp-angle shot from the goal line. Not a great choice as his team had good possession deep in the Kingston zone, and Tullio's high-risk shot ended up going to the far boards, and made an easy clearance for Oshawa. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note One-times a shot from the top of the circle, and misses the short side by three feet. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note Tries a sequence of moves to get around the defendeer, but the defenseman didn't bite and Tullio ends up in the corner. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note One-time attempt, this one low on net, but he didn't get everything on it and gave the netminder just enough time to get a across and make a fine save. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note Makes a pass from his knees to start a great sequence leading to a chance by Suni. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note Playing regularly with Tomasino is going to make Tullio a much better player, I think. At the worst, his stats will improve, that's for sure. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note Converts another gorgeous Tomasino pass. If Tullio goes to the net with his stick on the ice, Tomasino will find it and hit it. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Note Tullio repays Tomasino for all the great passes by returning the favor. Going behind the net, turns his hips without changing direction and passes back against the grain to Tomasino at the bottom of the circle. No chance for the goaltender on that one. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Ty Tullio Summary Playing with pace and a lot of skill, Tullio was taking full advantage of playing with a linemate as skilled as Tomasino. Tullio pays attention to the details of the game, keeping his stick on the ice and getting to open spots, making good reads in all three zones, and showed creativity in the offensive zone with nice passing plays. He does a lot without trying to do too much, a simple, yet high-paced game that cuts out risk while still pushing the play up ice. His shot was good, although from further out he showed some inaccuracy in his shot. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Vitali Pinchuk Note Early shifts he looks a bit cumbersome on his skates. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Vitali Pinchuk Note Decent mobility with the puck through the neutral zone, keeping the puck wide and pumping his outside skate, but as he hits the zone and tries to power through a couple of opposing players, he loses the puck and turns it over. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Vitali Pinchuk Note Again tries to power his way through against two or three opponents as he enters the zone, and again loses the puck. He's not trying to cut through so much as he is trying to bull his way through. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Vitali Pinchuk Note Standing around a little too much in the defensive zone, watching the play a little too much. Spectating. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Vitali Pinchuk Note Just not fast enough. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Vitali Pinchuk Note Telegraphs a cross-ice offensive zone pass on the powerplay and the puck gets batted out of the zone. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Vitali Pinchuk Note One-timer from the right side. Got a lot on it, and the glove save looked spectacular, but I think the puck was going into the side netting. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Vitali Pinchuk Note I've lost count of how many times he's tried to bulldoze through several players entering the offensive zone and has lost the puck. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Vitali Pinchuk Summary Pinchuk plays a north-south style, but too often his straightforward play had him trying to take on two or three defenders at a time instead of looking for teammates or waiting for other options to develop. He moves okay, but between the single-mindedness of his attacks and his sometimes deliberate and obvious movements, his hockey iq appears questionable. He has time to polish that, but right now it seems his physical tools exceed his mental game. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Zayde Wisdom Note Skating looks smooth, his pivots are clean. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Zayde Wisdom Note Holding the puck behind the Oshawa net, fends off a defender with a turnaround move, then finds Wright in front. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Zayde Wisdom Note Second time in the first period where he's lost the handle a bit, but this time he regains control and drops an pass for a chance. He needs to get cleaner on his stick skills, but he's a high-possession player with vision. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Zayde Wisdom Note With the puck on the far side boards, he lost track of his defensive weak-side responsibilities and lets the defender pinch in behind him all alone and score an easy goal after Neumann passed to him off the boards. The defender was all the way to the low circle before Wisdom even looked back to check on him. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Zayde Wisdom Note He'll bang. Finishes his checks well. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Zayde Wisdom Note Wright makes a good pass to him but Wisdom just didn't anticipate it, and the puck was past him before he realized it. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Zayde Wisdom Note Has some time and lets a wrist shot fly at the short-side top corner from behind a screen. Goalie got his glove on it. Wisdom did well to pick out the spot, and showed a quick release with accuracy to hit that spot, but he could have used just a little more heat on it. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Zayde Wisdom Note Hard, hard work on a rush, battling the defender, and he is able to turn the corner just enough to sweep the puck to Chromiak at the crease, who then gets robbed by a sprawling save. Wisdom's best play of the game so far. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Zayde Wisdom Note On the rush, has the puck on the right wing side with Wright on his left and Chromiak trailing. Wisdom passes back to Chromiak at the high slot, but puts it way behind him and the pucks goes out to the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Zayde Wisdom Note Another instance in his defensive zone where he's watching the puck instead of monitoring his defensive responsibilities. Allows Suni to get behind him and create a good scoing chance. Wisdom with his back to the most dangerous part of the play. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Zayde Wisdom Summary Just looks raw in his play. Has very good skating ability, and his puckhandling is good, but often at speed his hands had a difficult time keeping up with his feet. When he slows down, he looks more controlled and capable with the puck. His defensive play needs work, however, as too many times he missed assignments in his own end (a couple of prime examples noted above). He does not shy away from contact, and in fact looked good in puck battles or keeping puck possession under pressure. He could develop into a nice middle-six player who will end his shifts in the offensive zone and be effective in a cycle game. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/25/2020
Alexander Mirzabalayev Note Truly lacks acceleration, like he's trying to skate in mud. Once he's going, he's okay, with nice edges in gliding, average speed. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Alexander Mirzabalayev Note Breaking out, shovels a pass but nearly falls over trying to avoid a hit. Would rather have seem him bear down just a bit more and take the hit to make a cleaner pass. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Alexander Mirzabalayev Note Tries to lift a short saucer pass to the slot but leads his man too much and the puck goes harmlessly into the corner. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Alexandre Doucet Note A couple of sluggish steps, looks half-hearted in the defensive zone as he reaches out for pucks instead of moving his feet. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Alexandre Doucet Note Lacks agility and the ability to dig into turns or cut laterally. All of his turns are long and slow. Edgework needs a lot of development. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Alexandre Doucet Note Puck watching in the neutral zone and Fillion shakes him cleanly. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Alexandre Doucet Note Patient with the puck, drifting toward the net, holding, trying to get the defender to committ. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Goes after a puck in the deep offensive zone, lifts the defender's stick and gains control. Then, from below the goal line, tosses the puck into the goalie's feet, off a skate and in. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Playing low on the right-side circle on the powerplay, and the low man finds him for a hard one-timer that took a great save to keep out of the net. Cormier got everything on that. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Same shift, but out a little higher near the top of the right circle, rips a slapshot about six inches off of the ice, hard on net. Forward in front tried to deflect but missed the puck. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Buzzing on the powerplay, moving with and without the puck. Takes one behind the net and saucers the puck to the circle, but Aleksei Sergeev mistimes it and the puck skips past his stick. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Quality work at the top of the penalty kill box. Active, pestering the puck, closing lanes. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Carries the puck with good speed and enters the zone cleanly on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Finishes a tremendous feed from Malatesta. Pots it into the open net one-timed. Great hustle to be there and be ready on the fly. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Drives to the net without the puck yet again, this time drawing a tripping penalty. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Summary Smaller forward with skill and skating ability, but not spectacular at any one thing. A well-rounded player who can help his team in all zones. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Darien Kielb Note He's slow trying to chase down another shorthanded breakaway. He just can't keep up at all, despite the obviously intense amount of effort he's putting into it. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Darien Kielb Note Playing the point on the powerplay. Moves the puck okay enough, but nothing looks sharp about his game, and his inability to get back fast enough to prevent shorthanded chances makes him a liability back there. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Darien Kielb Note This time, instead of giving up yet another clean shorthanded breakaway, he actually just dove and tackled the charging forward before he could get to the puck. Yikes. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Edouard Cournoyer Note Intercepts at his crease and hands off and joins the breakout, but the forward trying to skate out of the zone heads into traffic, and Courneyer wisely backed off into a more cautious defensive position, and was in the right spot when the puck was indeed turned over. Smart read. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Edouard Cournoyer Note Physical on the boards, hard work to win the puck, then accelerates after passing to the blue line and starting a rush. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Edouard Cournoyer Note Tries to settle a puck with his foot, but can't quite get control and Mirzabalayev, takes it away from him. But Cournoyer works to get back and take away the slot option. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Edouard Cournoyer Note Not great speed, but mobile enough in small areas to allow him to gain position in the defensive zone. He's a pass first defender, but he'll try to push up ice when he can. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Edouard Cournoyer Note Takes a while to get his wrist shot away because he leans so heavily into his stick, but once its away, the pucks flies off his stick with good power. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jacob Melanson Note Goes to the net without the puck, almost pokes the puck in during a goal-mouth scramble, then circles back and levels the puckcarrier trying to skate clear of the zone. It was a hard hit called for a boarding, but I didn't think that was a good call. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jacob Melanson Note takes a solid hit and gets up slowly. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jacob Melanson Note Good work to cover his net front after the Center extended coverage out near the blue line. Smart read in his own zone, responsible play. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jacob Melanson Note Battling at the goal crease, scrapping for a loose puck. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jacob Melanson Note He's done a good job absorbing hits without showing much ill effect. He bounces back quickly. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Playing top circle right side, pucks comes to him from the opposite corner faceoff and he lets a one-timer go, simple glove save as the goalie was well-positioned. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Lacks agility and the ability to dig into turns or cut laterally. All of his turns are long and slow. Edgework needs a lot of development. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Okay start from a standstill, but he's not getting a huge burst. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Works on the puck carrier deep in the right corner, and as the opponent tries to spin away and turn up ice, Malatesta picks his pocket and turns for a backhand attempt on goal. Not a lot on it, but it was hard to determine if that was a shot or an attempt to pass to his teammate cutting to the front of the net. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Pushes a bouncing puck forward, races the defender to it, and as the puck pings off the half-boards, Malatesta one-times a fast-release snap shot on net. He can get a shot away from anywhere under any condition. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Improved leg strength will help his skating, both in short and open spaces. He's got speed and is a smooth skater, and his mechanics look good, just not fully matured yet. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note He'll take up a spot in front of the net on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Lateral/backward crossovers get him from the top of the circle to the slot in a hurry. Nice skating. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Throws a hit in the corner while on the powerplay. Solid jolt against a much bigger defenseman. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Has missed on a few passes. He is seeing the play, just not quite connecting. A little behind, and little in front. Needs to iron that out. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Great effort from near the red line to chase a puck that was racing into the offensive zone. He again beat a defender to the puck, and as soon as his reached it (near the goal line) he swept the puck back to Cormier coming down the right wing, who finishes. Malatesta caught up to the puck and didn't bother trying to settle it, just passed it behind and to his right at full speed. Excellent play. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Shows good hands in tight to snap at a goal mouth puck and almost gets it below the goaltender's pads. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Doesn’t cheat the game to get up ice. He's unselfish about protecting his zone. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Tries to tuck a back pass to Cormier off of the cycle, but misses him by three feet. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note He's got such a feel for the game. He just jumped to a spot where the puck squeaked out and he tucks it backhand into the open net. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Hands and a super-high scoring drive. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Summary Any interesting scoring forward prospect who seems to want to get the puck in the net on every shift, and wants more when he gets one. His shot is much more accurate than his passing, which he will absolutely need to improve upon. He plays a smart, highly attentive game, and his hockey sense is great. I liked his willingness to get physical and go to the difficult areas despite being just 16 years old and 5'9. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jeremie Biakabutuka Note Speed is average. Just doesn't seem to push or power his stride at all. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jeremie Biakabutuka Note Backwards skating looks labored and lacks agility or quickness. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jeremie Biakabutuka Note Gets beaten completely by Sergeyev who isn't particularly fast or crafty, but one simple fake and cut inside and Biakabutuka was turned inside out. He was clearly playing the puck and not the man. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jeremie Biakabutuka Note Blue line draw comes to him, a little pressure and he awkwardly retreats behind his own net. Additional offside pressure joins and he looks panicked and gives the puck away. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jeremie Biakabutuka Note Breakout, takes the puck at the blue line and skates it to the redline, then dumps it in so hard that it rims all the way around and allows Quebec to make an easy breakout of their own. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Small player, decent manueverability but his top speed looks only above average. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Killing penalties, and twice turned the wrong way, showing his back to the puck. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Not a fan of his straight-line speed. He moves okay with the puck, but he's only an above average skater from what I've seen so far. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note On the powerplay in the slot, tries to deflect a shot but gets too much of it and knocks it down in front of him. He immediately grabbed the puck, spun and fired it over the goaltender's blocker for a goal. Caught the goalie by surprise shooting off of the spin. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Killing a penalty, picks off a bobbling puck at his blue line and creates a clean breakaway. Gains a stride on Mavrick Gauthier, fakes, goes backhand-forehand as he hits the brakes, and slips the puck past the flailing netminder. That was a good move to fool the goaltender completely. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Good on his edges at speed, which helps him slide in and out of spaces. His first couple of steps are just okay, and his top speed is good, but its in between where he looks best on his skates. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Good check into the boards rubs out the puck carrier. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Five-on-three powerplay, and he's low on the left side of the net. Alll of the danger is starting on his stick. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Summary A chippy, smaller forward that is effective in all three zones. He plays hard, competes hard, and has good hands and feet. He's just 5'7 now, but his father Stephane played at 5'11, 190 and put in 900+ NHL games. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Mavrick Gauthier Note Seems like he takes it personally when opponents try to take up residence at the top of the crease. Physical, choppy, intent on clearing that space. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
William Provost Note Stays almost straight upright during his first several steps, and only gets low after several strides. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
William Provost Note Takes a shot off of the faceoff. A ton of stick flex, but hit the goaltender in the chest. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
William Provost Note On the very next faceoff, tries the exact same shot from the faceoff, but the defender reads it and just takes the puck off of his stick and skates away. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
William Provost Note In a puck battle behind his own net, loses the battle and the puck, but his teammate throws a hit and creates a turnover. Provost then takes a couple of slow steps up ice while his team breaks out. No urgency at all. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Xavier Fillion Note Gets a wrist shot away with not much power behind it. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020

Xavier Fillion Note Simple fake leaves Doucet grasping for straws. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020

Ivan Morozov Note Skating is good, his straightline speed looks above averagee, but not excellent. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Ivan Morozov Note Setting up in the slot on the powerplay. He looks comfortable taking the puck into high-traffic areas. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Ivan Morozov Note Fast turn with the puck, passes, shoves his way back to the front of the net. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Ivan Morozov Note Jumps to get a loose puck, then digs a heel and edges left. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Ivan Morozov Summary Not the most creative forward, but unafraid. He's a north/south player who will get to the greasy, hard-fought spots on the ice and be effective when he's there. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Maxim Sorkin Note Tries the power turn to the net, but can't beat the defender to get a clean look. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Maxim Sorkin Note Throws a puck from the half boards to no one at the crease. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Simon Knak Note Bad pass off the boards in his own end. It should have been a pressure-relieving clearance pass, but instead his just pushed it towards the blue line and gave up a two-on-one against. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Simon Knak Note Blocks a shot. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020

Simon Knak Note Trailing the rush, gets a one-timer opportunity that he rifles on net, saved. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Simon Knak Note Big circles around the slot as a defending technique on that shift. Down 3-1 in the third, I can see why he wants to get up ice, but he needs to be more settled there. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Simon Knak Note Needs more intensity in his game. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Simon Knak Summary Looks thinner than he's listed at 6'1, 190 and perhaps that is due in part to his minimally physical game. There a good parts of his game--he has good speed and skating abilities, handles the puck well, etc--but his overall play does lack intensity and there was not a lot of offense on display in this game, albeit against a stingy Russian defense. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note Floating a bit in his own zone looking for a place to defend instead of being settled in position. Chasing the puck a bit. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note He's quick on his feet, and uses that on the penalty kill. He looked better on the pk than his earlier defensive shift. Sound positioning. Active but controlled. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note Puck on his stick on the powerplay, recognizes that he has plenty of room, walks the puck in from the blue line, wrist shot wide. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note Confident and capable with the puck. He's havinga hard time cracking the Russian defense, but he's trying hard. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note Top speed is good, but his acceleration, edges and agility are excellent. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note Does lots of little things well, and he battles hard. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note Wouldn't be surprised if he finishes this game with 25+ minutes of ice time. [Ed Note: Nussbaumer was officially listed as having 24:28 of ice time in the game]. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note His competitiveness pegs the needle. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Summary Easily Switzerland's best skater in this game. Nussbaumer plays hard in all three zones, has very good agility and quickness, tries to get the puck to the net, and showed an adequate shot release that could use more accuracy. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Yegor Sokolov Note Huge body, not an overly coordinated skater. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Yegor Sokolov Note In a straight line, his strides are short. He gets his feet back quickly, but there's no extendeed push at all. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Yegor Sokolov Summary Did not show much in the game other than his massive frame (6'4, 240). His skating is below average both in speed and mobility, he shows little to no offensive creativity beyond getting his body to the front of the net, and defensively he was just average. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Alexander Holtz Note Puck in his own end, and as the defenseman is readying to exit, Holtz is moving laterally in protect against a Slovakian forechecker charging in, then he accelerates and activates as the puck does. Smart play. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Alexander Holtz Note Everything looks effortless for him: skating, handling. Never out of control. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Alexander Holtz Note Has such a big wrist shot, he can score from the boards with that thing. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Alexander Holtz Note Always has his stick on the ice, ready to receive a pass, providing easy targets for his teammate with the puck. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Alexander Holtz Note Carries the puck into the zone with speed, but the puck rolls off the toe of his stick as he tries to make a move. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Alexander Holtz Note His shot is lethal. Another wrist shot, this one from the top of the circle, just whipped it top corner far side. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Jonatan Berggren Note Working on the second powerplay unit, takes up a command and control spot below the goal line and is running the play from there. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Marko Stacha Note Unexpected poke check breaks up a pass. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019

Martin Fasko-Rudas Note Attentive to defense when the puck is inhis area. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Martin Fasko-Rudas Note Albin Eriksson gets a breakaway and Fasko-Rudas gains about a half-step on him while chasing him down. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Nils Hoglander Note Good vision to find Fagemo in the slot, and a better pass to give him a chance to convert. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Nils Hoglander Note First shift on the game, and he's already beavertailed his stick twice. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Nils Hoglander Note Fission quick, but he's easily knocked around if there's any contact. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019

Nils Hoglander Note Tries a no-look pass backwards between his legs while facing the half-boards, but it doesn't connect and is cleared. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Nils Hoglander Note Tries a backhand shovel pass and puts it into the skates. The king of high-risk plays. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Samuel Knazko Note At even strength, he's paying attention and quick to get back when Sweden gets puck control. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Samuel Knazko Note Good speed, probably very good. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Samuel Knazko Note On the ice a lot. He's getting a ton of minutes. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Aatu Raty Note Killing penalties despite being the team's youngest player. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Aatu Raty Note Killing a penalty, gets up ice with the puck, mishandles, stays on it, mishandles, stays on it and then he has a chance on goal. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Aatu Raty Note Good interception on the penalty kill. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019

Andrei Buyalski Note Playing the right side on the top powerplay squad. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Andrei Buyalski Note Penalty killing center. He's a decent skater, good closing speed. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Andrei Buyalski Note Skating is very good or maybe better, Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Andrei Buyalski Note Another moment of nice footwork. He is a player that looks completely comfortable among the speedy Finnish team. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Andrei Buyalski Note Then he buries a snipe from the circle. That was a shot. Sent the water bottle to the boards. Took his time, found a gap, lasered it. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Andrei Buyalski Note Shoots at will because he carries the puck at speed, uses his edges to create space, and typically hits the zone with little help. He's been the most interesting player of the period. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Andrei Buyalski Note Needs to get stronger and add some weight. He's a beanpole. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Ansar Shaikhmeddenov Note Big, long strides with full extension and push. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Eemil Erholtz Note Killing penalties, gets a nice lead pass and a breakaway. Tries a backhand deke but the goalie stays with him. Erholtz looks gassed after, though. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Matias Maccelli Note Slippery with the puck, very good first two steps, mercurial movement. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Matias Maccelli Note Constant motion. He only knows attack, apparently. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Matias Maccelli Note Gets his shot away with a fast, hard release. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Matias Maccelli Note Pulls up and fires a pass though the slot right on the tape. He should be awarded an assist for that pass even though his teammate missed the net. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Maxim Musorov Note Tries to stickhandle through three Finns and go in alone, but that was a failing proposition from the start. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Patrik Puistola Note Wide stance, with a shoulder wobble as he skates. Speed seems okay though, smooth crossovers make his turning acceleration better than straight first steps. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Patrik Puistola Note Working through the circle, slot and to the crease on the powerplay. Stick in position, easily converts the Tanus pass. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Patrik Puistola Note A net-front player, which limits the damage his sub-par skating can do to his offensive effectiveness. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Stanislav Alexandrov Note Speed looks just okay. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Stanislav Alexandrov Note Looked quick there, and showed some nice agility hopping around a stopped player. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Stanislav Alexandrov Note Horrible pass three feet behind him, but he's able to spin and collect, and then avoids what would have been a heavy check. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Stanislav Alexandrov Note Looks good curling through the neutral zone. Puckhandling is good, hits the zone with speed, but the attack fizzles from lack of support and creativity. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Stanislav Alexandrov Note Misses on a cross-ice pass. Good choice, done with urgency, but off target by a good bit. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Adam Raska Note Nice movement, sharp stop to square up to block a shot. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Adam Raska Note Forward stride is leaking power. His top-end speed is maybe above average. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Adam Raska Note Floating in the defensive zone, watching the play behind the net but not getting involved until the puck gets rimmed around. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Adam Raska Note Gets a steal, enters the offensive zone with one defender to beat, and just whiffs completely on the puck. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Adam Raska Note Goes to the net and draws a penalty. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Adam Raska Note With the puck, battling the defender, holding him and keeping his feet moving. I like him better playing that time of game. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Adam Raska Note He's willing to get physical and bang along the boards. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Adam Raska Note Another hit. He'll make you pay to hold the puck. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Adam Raska Summary The best part of his game was his physical play, which was thoughtful and affective on the forecheck. He didn't thrill on offense, and his skating needs work. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jan Jenik Note Just rifled a disguised wrist shot that missed by a puck's length. His shot is electric. Even made Ferraro gasp. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jan Mysak Note Gets up to speed in a hurry, and his top speed looks tremendous. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jan Mysak Note Change of direction looks a little difficult, and his first step from a stop is heavy-footed, but he can fly on the move. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jan Mysak Note Good backcheck sequence where he used his speed to close, then stick check the carrier and force him outside. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jan Mysak Note Works hard, good lunch-pail type who is always on the job. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jan Mysak Note Corrals a puck that is behind him while he's already turning up ice, gets control, flies up the right side, and at the top of the circle, let's go a wrist shot that beats Askarov clean over his glove hand. That was a full 200-foot shift with a big reward at the end. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jan Mysak Note Killing a penalty, not as assertive as I'd like to see, more just waving his stick and looking on. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jan Mysak Note Another opportunity to see him accelerate from a glide, and he zooms past everyone. He's an excellent skater. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jan Mysak Note Backwards skating as the Russians come up ice, then a change of direction, moving up and left to attack the puck carrier. Mobility is very good. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jan Mysak Note Top powerplay unit. Draws a penalty by hitting the zone with speed. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jan Mysak Note Five-on-three, working the right circle, sends a pass to the blue line that misses by two meters. Worst play I've seen from him in the game. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jan Mysak Note Powerplay one-timer he fans on, then gets a second chance and sends it wide. In between, he wristed one hard on net after sliding to the slot, but couldn't drag Askarov out of position. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jan Mysak Summary There was so much to like about Mysak's game. He is fast, assertive, and agile on his feet when he's on the attack, and his defensive zone play was okay. He generates offense when he's on the ice, but needs some polish. Watch out for this kid, though. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jaromir Pytlik Note Moves well laterally and turns smooth circles. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jaromir Pytlik Note Top penalty kill unit for the Czechs Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jaromir Pytlik Note Moves pretty well. Has good jump. A little too upright perhaps, but he'll win a lot of footraces. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jaromir Pytlik Note Want him to improve his straightline speed. As mentioned before, a lttle too upright, a little too out of sync. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Jaromir Pytlik Note He can get low and dig in when he really wants to motor. Doesn't do it that much, though. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Kirill Marchenko Note Not speedy by any means, but his big strides get him up ice, and he will improve, I think.Shows good balance and quickness. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Kirill Marchenko Note Nice backhand pass to the point. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Kirill Marchenko Note He is a clever puck mover, making small precise passes to open up offensive space and lanes. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Kirill Marchenko Note On the powerplay, he's trying to direct teammates to things he sees but they apparently don't; board pass here, give and go there. Not looking frustrated, just eager. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Kirill Marchenko Note Seriously looks one step ahead on thought processing. It's why his passes are so flickering. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Kirill Marchenko Note Keeps working to drive play up into the offensive zone. He's not cheating the play, but driving positive possession. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Kirill Marchenko Note Spinning no-look pass to the tape of his cutting linemate, who bobbles it in the slot. Nice pass. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Kirill Marchenko Note Soft pass to set up Morozov for a one-timer. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Kirill Marchenko Note There he rips a hard pass across ice to the far side winger. Marchenko is a good, accurate passer with vision and the understanding of how to weight them. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Kirill Marchenko Summary There he rips a hard pass across ice to the far side winger. Marchenko is a good, accurate passer with vision and the understanding of how to weight them. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Maxim Groshev Note Not getting much ice time as the Russian coach has shortened the bench. Here, he was engaged neutral zone play. Skating looks like it needs some work. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Maxim Groshev Note Generates good speed through the neutral zone, gains the offensive zone, passes it into an opponent's skates. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Nikita Rtishchev Note Frenetic first step off of the faceoff, then throws a hit on the boards. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Nikita Rtishchev Note His feet are miles apart during acceleration. His feet come back to about shoulder width, at best. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Nikita Rtishchev Note End of the first period, haven't seen much of him, but now the game is tied and he's back on the ice. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Nikita Rtishchev Note Putting his body into lanes to block shots. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Nikita Rtishchev Note Skating is awkward, jerky in a way. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Nikita Rtishchev Note Seems to spend a lot of time bouncing off of players, hitting but not making an impact. He makes contact, then has to rebalance, and the play has passed him by. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Nikita Rtishchev Note Off to the box for roughing, giving the Czechs a 5-on-3 powerplay in a tied game. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Nikita Rtishchev Note Choppy strides that look like Top Chef blades out there. Also leads to his lack of impact. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Nikita Rtishchev Summary Rtishchev's biggest drawback is his skating, which detracts from his ability to affect the play around him. In a scrum, he loses balance on impact, and in open space he lacks the acceleration or speed to take advantage of extra time. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Otakar Sik Note Tremendous burst of speed up ice going after a long, dumped puck. Low, centered, exceptionally fast. Impressive. Didn't do anything when he got there, but the getting there was exciting. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Pavel Dorofeyev Note Like his turns with the puck on his stick, decisive and clean. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Pavel Dorofeyev Note Fast-handed attempt on a rebound, but Dostal saved it. Dorofeyev is getting to the difficult places and making it work when he's there. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Pavel Dorofeyev Note On the powerplay, moves the puck to the boards when a point pass might have been better, and the play fizzles out. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Pavel Dorofeyev Note Same shift, goes to the slot, just wandering a bit. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Pavel Dorofeyev Note Gets the puck with a wide-open net and pushes it wide. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Pavel Dorofeyev Note Again has a decent opportunity in tight, and his backhand misses. He handles the puck so much better than he shoots. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Pavel Dorofeyev Note Just doesn't have any urgency at all. Waiting for the puck. Waiting. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Pavel Dorofeyev Note Waterskiing because he can't catch up. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Pavel Dorofeyev Note Another time when his puckhandling looks good, but his shot looks lacking. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Pavel Dorofeyev Summary He can handle the puck and make fantastic reads and passes in tight spaces, but at least in this game, that ability did not translate to his shooting. He looks like he tries to pass it into the net rather than unleashing hard shots. His skating is mostly average. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Radek Kucerik Note Gets called for a roughing for a post-whistle shoulder bump on Romanov. Not a good play in the first action I've seen from him in the game. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Radek Kucerik Note Sweeping, active stick, his head is on a swivel, and he uses good edgework to slide into shooting lanes and eliminate options. Good positional work. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Radek Kucerik Note Makes a bad, easily tipped away pass, but then makes up for it with an interception of his own, and deft move, and skates it clear of his own zone. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Radek Kucerik Note Tries a poke check to prevent the Russian player from exiting the zone. Moderately successful in stopping him, but the puck bounces to another Russian and Kucerik is left scrambing to get back. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Radek Kucerik Note Decent speed, above average skating. Sturdy at 6'2, 198 pounds. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Radek Kucerik Note Holds the puck too long in his own end, and Nikita Alexandrov strips him for a chance on goal against. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Radek Kucerik Note Just got pulled apart by a Voronkov in and out move that put Kucerik right on the ice. Ooof. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Radek Kucerik Summary Good size, steady on his feet, plays with intent, but his hockey sense is questionable at times. He made several thoughtless mistakes in the game. Perhaps it was nerves, perhaps more. Will continue to monitor going into the 2021 draft, but at this point I don't expect much. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Yegor Sokolov Note That hit on Lauko was just dirty. That sort of direct knee to knee hit from the side can end careers. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2019
Akil Thomas Note Can pivot front to back without losing any speed Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Akil Thomas Note Russia trying to set up their offense, Thomas is in the middle, directing players to set up the defense. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Akil Thomas Note One-time snapshot through the legs of the defender that almost beats the goalie five hole. Deceptive and fast. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Tremendous effort on the backcheck, skating all the way back from the offensive goal line. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Danil Savunov Note Also incredibly fast. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Jamie Drysdale Note Lightning fast, long push, great technique. He might be the best pure skater of the 2020 class. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Jamie Drysdale Note Second PK unit. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Jamie Drysdale Note Telegraphed a D to D pass that Amirov anticipates and intercepts Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Jamie Drysdale Note Able to chase all the way back to the net on a good angle, and hits the crease at the same time as Amirov. Doesn't prevent the shot, but he hampered it a bit. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Quinton Byfield Note In a puck battle in his defensive corner, taking on two Russians and is able to eventually win the puck. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Quinton Byfield Note Intercepts a high pass with his hand, drops and taps forward to Tomasino for an attacking play. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Rodion Amirov Note Intercepts at the blue line and rockets down the ice for a breakaway chance. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Ty Dellandrea Note Very good speed, and willing to take the body and make a hit on the forecheck, Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Ty Dellandrea Note Plays a good positional defensive game. Pinning his man, trying up in the slot. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Ty Dellandrea Note Top penalty killing unit for the OHL team. Active stick, creates a turnover. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Ty Dellandrea Note Skating the puck out, fires a perfect cross-ice pass to the far boards connecting with the left winger. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Vasili Podkolzin Note Can generate so much speed and power through the neutral zone with the puck, and can still fake and deke around defenders. He's a beast one-on-one with almost anybody. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Picks up a puck, gains speed through the neutral zone, tries to work through three opponents as he enters the offensive zone and he loses the puck into the side boards. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Gets a gift puck all alone in the slot, closes, handles and shoots, gets his own rebound on the move, cuts behind the net and scores on the wraparound. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Changes gears when he needs to, has good control of his skating speed and angles. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Perfetti's hands are all over his stick, choking up, reaching out. Soft, fluid hands that allows him handle and move the puck in tight spaces. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note On the powerplay, slowly stickhandling though the neutral zone and almost lulls the defenders to sleep. Sharp pass at the blue line and suddenly he's behind the forwards and has the puck back. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Snappy release using the defender as a screen, and nearly beats the netminder. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note He can command the game when the puck is on his stick. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Perfetti is constantly in and out of traffic without the puck. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Seems to feel zero pressure when he has the puck, despite the number of opponents bearing down on him. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Summary Perfetti is a player who is noticeable on practically every shift. His skating is so smooth and lively, and he plays a smart game in all three zones, but he sparkles when he has the puck, and his team makes sure that the play is always going through him somehow. He is an excellent puck handler who draws opponents to him and makes the smart play, never forcing either a shot or a pass. If he doesn't have a clear option, he can skate his way into one. Even without the puck, he is looking for opportunities. A top prospect, no question. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Damien Giroux Note Tries a long diagonal blue-line-to-blue-line pass, but the puck was skipping when it arrived and the receiver couldn't handle it. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Damien Giroux Note Tries a one-timer in close but he didn't get all of it, and although it wasn't simple for the goalie, it was a fairly straightforward save. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Damien Giroux Note He'll hit, and crosscheck, too. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019

Damien Giroux Note Loses an edge on a hard turn and goes sprawling. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Damien Giroux Note Good competitiveness and hard effort to try to keep or win pucks. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Damien Giroux Note In a good shooting spot, but when he gets the puck, he misses wide. He needed to hit the net there, because he had a lot of rebound help in front. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Damien Giroux Summary The fifth-round pick of the Minnesota Wild from the 2018 draft is on the small side at 5'10, 185, but he's not afraid to mix it up a bit and get his body into the game. He's a two-year captain for the Spirit, and its easy to see why in the way he plays. He's always working hard, battling for puck possession. He is not a prolific scorer, however, despite his decent stick skills. He missed the net too many times and some of his passes were off target. Skating is above average. At this point, it's hard to call him a projectable NHLer, but he could still make a nice professional career for himself in the AHL with a chance at the NHL if he can push hard on the development curve. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Davis Codd Note Fast, good technique and stride power. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Davis Codd Note Small and quick, hardworking player at both ends. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Davis Codd Note Might be the fastest skater in this game. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Davis Codd Note Drives the net on the left side, right-handed shot shows backhand, forehand, backhand, top shelf but the netminder gets a shoulder on it and pushes it just over the bar. Fast, fast hands there. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Davis Codd Summary Barely sixteen years old (born August 2003), Codd is a fast, dynamic skater who brings energy and a good amount of puck skills to the ice. He's listed at 5'9, 163 pounds, with some room to grow and polish his skills. His hard work and high level of competitiveness will help him going forward. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Dylan Robinson Note Big, stunner hit that separates puck from carrier. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Dylan Robinson Note Takes the hit to make sure he gets the puck to the right player. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Dylan Robinson Note Late in the period, in the offensive zone, keeping alert at the left point, and as the puck gets closer to the net, he gets closer himself. Puck hops to the slot, he jumps up, swivels his hips to shield the puck from a Saginaw player, and with that extra second is able to backhand the puck on net. Then he's immediately back out to his post at the blue line, checking the clock. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Dylan Robinson Note Pinches into the corner, helps his team keep possession, then backs out to this spot again. As he does that, he waves his Center back towards the play down low. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Dylan Robinson Note Good, simple zone clearance. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Dylan Robinson Summary Robinson is a steady, heady defender who plays a shrewd positional game in his own end. Up ice, he stays responsible, but looks willing to pinch in and get involved in the offense if it doesn't involve too much risk. This is his first full-time OHL season even though he is a 2020 draft-eligible player. Despite his relative inexperience, he plays a lot of minutes on the blue line, with good hockey iq and a potential NHL career in the future. It will be interesting to see how his draft stock goes. He has the look now of a player who could be a late round pick or a player who gets passed by this season, but really stands out next year. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Smooth-looking backward skating, but crossing over a bit more when c-cuts would be better there. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Holds his position, doesn't buy the Foudy fake, and good physical play knocks Foudy off the puck. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Hard pass from behind his his own net out to the half boards starts the breakout. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019

Ilya Solovyov Note Killing penalties, bottles the puck into the corner and eats seconds off of the clock. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Decent first couple of steps from a standstill, when he needs it. But, he is standing still a bit too much. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Windsor coming out of their zone, and Solovyov gets caught lingering in the neutral zone while an attacking player skips by him and enters the zone cleanly, while Solovyov was left groping with his sitck. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Leading a slowish, sort of plodding rush that gets stifled. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Another instance where he was standing and watching instead of hustling back from the boards to his net. What's he doing out there? Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note In full stride one-time slapshot that howled to the net. Goalie was ready but that was a blast. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Looks much more comfortable at the point when his team has good puck control. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Left-handed shot playing the left point. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Charges to the net, and the puck comes to him, but under duress he chips it over the net. Aggressive play, though. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Tries to leave his defensive zone when full possession was not yet theirs, and he left his D partner alone with the puck and three forechecking opponents. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Definitely not hesitant to shoot. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Another monster one-time slapper. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Horrible giveaway at the offensive blue line, and the penalty killer gets a clear breakaway for a goal. Not only was the turnover bad, the player breaking away is not fast, but Solovyov couldn't catch up to stop the attempt. The Saginaw goalie was shooting eye daggers at Solovyov after the goal. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Summary Good size at 6'2, 187. Has a huge slap shot with very good timing on one-timers, even on the move. But that's about the limit of his offensive abilities. Decent passer. Below average foot speed, stands around a lot, really bad in his own zone. Just doesn't get involved in most defensive action, though he will use his body at times. Just not a lot of visible hockey smarts in general. I love his shot, but don't really like any of the rest of his game.  Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note Tries to deke around a defender at the blue line who just bodies up and dumps him. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note Mechanics look good. He gets a lot of speed. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note Good skater with the puck, highly manueverable. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note He looks better skating in traffic than straight line. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note Turns a pass to the boards, keeps going for the other end of the give-and-go and gets a good look on net. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note That was a nice looks and pass through traffic to give the far side wing a chance on net. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note Might not have the sheer top-end speed of his older brother Liam, but he is an excellent skater just the same. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Summary Foudy was the most visible player on the ice for the Spitfires, driving play into the offensive zone, constantly on the attack, and doing his part in his own end. His skating in the zone forces the defenders to keep an eye on him at all times, and his passing and puckhandling are threat enough to punish them if they don't. Not truly electrifying, and not always a threat to score, but he's at a point per game after 29 this season. His mother was a silver-medalist Olympic sprinter, an interesting side note. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Big body with powerful skating that gives him sneaky-good straight-line speed. Agility and balance look okay. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Same shift, theres a rush up ice, and he was passing people. At 6'5 and 207 pounds, the 18-year-old forward is an excellent up-ice skater. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Skating and size, and his passing is okay, but he's floating and watching, not really getting into the action. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Gets a lucky puck with the goalie out of position behind the net and scores easily, even from a bad angle near the boards. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Carries the puck, power move on his backhand to get around the defender, then tries to go top shelf but misses high. Best offensive move I have seen from him so far in the game. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Again showing speed to beat out an icing. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Wrist shot takes a while to load and unleash. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Gets called for interference on something that could have been ugly as the player went awkwardly into the boards. I want to call that a bad penalty to take, but the opposing player stepped right in front of McDonald. Had he not crashed into the boards there likely wouldn't have been a call. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Summary McDonald is a 2020-eligible player who is 6'5, 187 pounds who is suprising fast with long, powerful strides that helps reach an excellent top speed. He shows very good mobility and balance. He is not as physical as you’d expect at his size, and his offensive game is subpar and he doesn't get into the meat of the battle at all. He'll need to up his work rate and get more involved in generating offense. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yegor Afanasyev Note Skating is above average but not by a lot. It limits his effectiveness trying to get through the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yegor Afanasyev Note Another rush, and he's a step or two off the pace. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yegor Afanasyev Note Going hard, but can't get ahead of Solovyov, who is not a speedy player. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yegor Afanasyev Note Powerplay, up near the top of the right circle, he looks good there because he doesn’t have to move as much or create his own space. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yegor Afanasyev Note Misses the net completely with a mid-range wrist shot. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yegor Afanasyev Summary A big, power-type player at 6'4, 201, but he lacks the spark that could help propel him forward. His skating is okay, but he's a step slow against good OHL skaters, and he'll need to up his intensity and mobility to get a good crack at the NHL. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Nils Lundqvist Note Mechanics are nearly flawless. Compact, long push, quick reset. Makes him remarkably fast. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Nils Lundqvist Note Skates the puck to the blue line, passes into the neutral zone, then races deep into the offensive zone. Suddenly he's behind the net drawing defenders to him before moving the puck. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Nils Lundqvist Note Lundkvist with an awesome pass in tight to find Gunler for the goal. Because it happened on the far side of the goal, I at first thought Lundkvist had shot the puck and Gunler got the rebound, but replays showed that Lundkvist actually pulled the puck to his backhand and made the five-foot pass to Gunler. Hands and vision on top of the speed he was bringing to the net. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Nils Lundqvist Note Oh my, is he fast. Just rockets up the ice. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Nils Lundqvist Note His release is quick. He gets the puck away with little stick movement at all. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Nils Lundqvist Summary Already a good to great skater when he was drafted in 2018, his skating speed and agility has seemingly improved to a superb level. He has also further developed his offensive skills and shot. Lundkvist is quickly becoming a first-rate defensive project for the Rangers. His size at 5'11, 174, is a little on the small side but should have zero effect on his ability to make his way to the NHL. I would not be surprised to see him transfer to North America in the near, near future. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Working towards to puck, side-steps a defender, gets the pass, feeds Lundkvist low. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Gets to the slot, and Lundkvist finds him with an amazing and sneaky backhand pass, which Gunler darts into the goal with one touch. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Gliding behind the net, watching the play on the boards. Puck kicks out, Gunler leans hard on his left skate, then with a great push and just two steps he's in the slot. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Burst is outstanding, speed is very good, edgework and agility are near excellent. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Stickhandles around the defender, then wrists a hard shot low to the far post that just misses wide. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Comes off the bench with speed and manages to keep a loose puck from exiting the offensive zone. His momentum carries him to the circle, but he turns back to buy a second or two then saucers one to the weak side right onto Lundkvist's stick. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Like his effort on the backcheck. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Sees that he has a bit of time while the puck is locked up on the boards, so he clears a broken stick from his high-slot area that had been on the ice for a few shifts. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note He plays a style of game that will easily translate to smaller ice. He skates well, but is a north/south player who goes to the middle without hesitation. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Summary Gunler's energy, awareness and alert play coupled with his skills and skating are a tantalizing package. He has size at 6'2 and 174 pounds, and he plays fast all the time. Truly an excellent prospect for the 2020 draft. He looks like a top ten pick to me, even with this crowded forward crop. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Adam Beckman Note Going hard back to the bench after his shift. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Top power play unit, low in the strong-side corner. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Edges are good, hands are steady and stick is ready. Works well to keep his body oriented to the play. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note As his team is breaking the puck out of the defensive zone, he heads into the neutral zone, then opens his hips and makes himself available for the breakout pass. Good awareness and skating. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Uses his heel to change pass and angle of forechecking attack. Nice footwork there. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Moving to the right, pass comes across his body and he's able to lean hard on his left foot edge and get a good, off-balance wrist shot on net. He knows how to shoot the puck. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Able to collect tough passes well, and then move the puck with a second touch. He's a step ahead of the play. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Another off-balance shot on net, this time on a one-timer from just inside the blue line. Before the puck was played out to him, he had circled back to get into a better lane and shooting space, and his shot was a dangerous one. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note One thing I'm seeing is he needs to up his physical play a bit. He looks okay in tough spots, but along the walls he's poking and reaching in instead of engaging the body. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note On the blue line, he flicks his wrists and puts a long shot on net. He's got a deceptively quick release. That one might not have had a lot of juice, but it still created havoc at the net. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Just had to make a choice on a puck that was skittering into the zone while he was leaning into the neutral zone. He could easily have chased, but chose the smarter option to regather and not overextend. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Also out on the penalty kill late in the first. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Starting from one blue line, Jarvis and Beckman are in footrace, Jarvis with the puck. By the redline, Jarvis has a stride, though he had a bit more run to start with and Beckman had a bit of traffic. At the next blue line, Jarvis has to slide right to evade a defender, and Beckman is about even again. I'd give the edge to Jarvis, but Beckman was close.

Adam Beckman Note Collects a loose puck at the red line, fights through a stick check, powers into the zone, then drops to the trailer. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note End of a long shift, still working hard in the defensive zone, then makes a bee-line fo the bench but the puck pops out in front of him. He attacks into the offensive zone, then when the play fizzles, he still goes hard to the bench. I love that effort. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note He's the second man in on a 3-on-2, but the winger fires a pass into his skates. He can't gather, but he keeps working hard to make something happen. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note He pays attention to his defensive role, and uses good acceleration to break up plays. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Down 3-1, he's on another 3-on-2 rush, this time trailing the play. There's a netfront scramble, the puck ends up in the net, and Beckman is hugging the goal scorer like they just won the championship. He's an enthusiastic winner, this kid. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note He's in great shape. He has played a ton of high energy minutes, and hasn't slowed a step. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Does a lot of spinning when he doesn't have the puck. It's wasted movement that will need to be excised from his game. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Another end-of-shift opportunity, he digs deep, gets a zone entry, and heads to the bench. Discipline and hard work. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Summary Beckman is a well-rounded player with a scorer's touch and feel around the offensive zone. He skates well, works hard in all three zones, and plays an attentive and aware game. He lacks physicallity but goes to high-traffic areas when he needs to. Good passer, good vision, though neither are particularly top end. He played a lot of minutes in all situations, and when he was on the ice, the puck typically ended up in the offensive zone. He could be a top-six winger at the NHL level if he continues to develop. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Note Hardworking forechecking shift, very active trying to get the puck back for his team. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Note Wide stride with short pushes. He should get deeper and push into longer strides, but he still has decent pace. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Note He's the center, but on this sequence he's trying to leave the zone before the puck. When the inevitable turnover happens, he's slow to get back on defense. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Note I like his movement overall, but he's a step or two slow skating north/south. On his next sequence, he showed that by having to pass the puck awkwardly instead of outskating the back pressure. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Note Tries to power around Tyson Kozak, but he didn't have the wheels to do it. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Note Yeah, he needs to get two steps faster. I hope he can, because I like him otherwise. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Summary An undrafted 2019 with good size at 6'1 but he's still on the thinner side at 165 pounds. Could use more leg strength and improvement on his stride. Good at faceoffs, but the coach seems to not trust his defensive play too much because he wasn't asked to be a core center defender low in his zone. My feeling after this game is that he could be an effective AHL-level pro, but needs to get faster. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bobby Russell Note Not watching him, but he just made an excellent 180 with the puck that made me go, "ooooh." Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cross Hanas Note Starts the breakout, heads to the front of the net, then jabs the puck up and into the net off the Fromm-Delorme feed. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cross Hanas Note Slotside of the circle on the offensive zone faceoff. Puck goes the other way into the corner, and Hanas turns towards the blue after bumping into the defender, then turns around again. Turning his back to the play is not good, but he may have been off balance and forced to do that. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cross Hanas Note Poor, blind backhand pass off his halfboards easily picked off. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cross Hanas Note Throws a nice hip check behind the offensive net. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cross Hanas Note Ridiculous video game deke, toe drag backhand top cheese. That was sick. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cross Hanas Summary Playing on the same line as Fromm-Delorme, but didn't look quite as effective. Willing to get physical, above average to good speed. Didn't show off his hands until that nasty dangle off the feed from Fromm-Delorme that was easily the highlight of his game. I'd like to see if he can do more of that, particularly in tighter confines. Looked okay to me, but not a high-end prospect for the 2020 draft at this point. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Filip Kral Note Kral, with good size and two-way play, is a weapon, even though he's not fast or dazzling. Just seems to get the job done somehow. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Filip Kral Note Again, Kral looks clunky, but he makes plays with the puck. I'm skeptical of his NHL future, but he has success on the ice. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note So tall at 6'5, 207 pounds, but he is a fluid, fast skater with agility as well. Nasty combo. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Throws a hit along the boards, using his size as a factor for physical play. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Top power play unit, taking up a net-front position. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Accelerates toward the net and wrists a shot low that handcuffed the goaltender. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Highly active at the crease on the power play. He's so big and well balanced that defenders can't dislodge him and the goalie has hard time getting sight lines. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Gets a wide, wide stance for faceoffs, and he gets so much leverage on the draw. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Killing penalties, but loses the faceoff in the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Again being called upon to kill penalties, and again he's just sort of passive in the slot. This looks more like a coaching preference rather than his play. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note At times, he looks like a kid trying to figure out how to make his body work in unison with all its parts. Once he does, he could be a real force to be reckoned with. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Needs to up his physical play a bit more. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note On the boards in the corner, the defender hooks him and he topples over. Weird play, but I'd like him to keep his feet there. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Strides are so long, he can cover half the rink in what seems like three steps. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Overskates the far post and is out of position, but the puck on the far boards goes the other way, so no damage. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Summary One of the youngest members of the 2020 draft class (9/2 birthdate), Finley might also be the biggest at 6'5, 207. He is a suprisingly good skater, with long, powerful strides and good edges and agility. He is strong on the puck and has a physical element though he needs to improve on that portion of his game. He was heavily relied on to kill penalties, take faceoffs in all zones, and get to the crease on the powerplay. He showed good hands and a facility for battling for pucks at the crease. He's a player who will improve over time if he keeps working hard. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Obrien Note Taking the faceoff, but not playing the typical centerman defensive role down low. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Obrien Note At the offensive blue line with the puck, instead of getting over the line, he tries to turn back, loses the puck, and the rush goes the other way. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Raegan Wiles Note Right point, half-hearted looking shot doesn't get through the traffic. Puck comes out. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Raegan Wiles Note Tries to cut off the forward on the boards, but doesn't quite make the angle. Gets a piece, but the forward gets past him. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Raegan Wiles Note Just haven't seen him on the ice much through two periods. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Reece Newkirk Note He's a waterbug with the puck, no doubt. Skating is crazy good. And his shot release is super fast. Nice wrist shot. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Reece Newkirk Note Tries a lacrosse move but Ty Smith buries him on the attempt. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note Reaching a bit on defense, but then closes and gets more physically engaged. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note Good feed to the slot, had to reach around the defender, but flicks a pass to Hanas for the chance. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note Moving through the offensive zone with intent when he doesn't have the puck. He's an active participant, not a passive observer. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note First step is lively. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note In a disintegrating game with a lot of good skaters, he's still showing speed and nerve and getting pucks into dangerous spots. Now, he just needs to finish. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note What a wonderful look! Take a pass off the baords, splits two defenders, then spins no scope and hits Hanas who dangles and buries it. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note I'd call his straightline speed at about 55ish on a 20-80 scale. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note He goes hard on the forecheck. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note I like his balance. He'll get his skates out wide to hold position and maintain strength on his feet and on the puck. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Summary Fromm-Delorme is quicker than he is fast, and looks like a better skater in tight spaces than in straightline open ice, but he's okay there, as well. His hockey sense is quite good, he has a high-energy work rate, and he looks to generate offense while he's out there. His defense looks more oriented to generate turnovers than protecting his net, but that's more an indication of his scoring drive than lack of responsibilty. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Excellent skating--speed, light on his skates, turns and pivots are seamless. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note On the penalty kill, battling along the boards against two Spokane players, Jarvis is able to keep the puck tied up for a while. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Headman goes deep into the zone to retrieve a dumped puck, Jarvis trailing, and when the puck kicks out to him, Jarvis rips a one-timer on net. A lot of heat on that shot. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Shot from a howitzer, Jarvis screams up ice and beats guys into the zone who were already at the blue line. Gets a drop pass, cuts hard at the goal line and feeds the puck to the slot. That would have been a goal if not for a brilliant poke check from the goalie. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Not getting enough quality ice time because the Winterhawks keep taking penalties. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Starting from one blue line, Jarvis and Beckman are in a footrace, Jarvis with the puck. By the redline, Jarvis has a stride, though he had a bit more run to start with and Beckman had a bit of traffic. At the next blue line, Jarvis has to slide right to evade a defender, and Beckman is about even again. I'd give the edge to Jarvis, but Beckman was close. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note After his rush and gaining the zone, he moves the puck then takes up a powerplay spot at the net. Is that how he catches his breath? Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Reading the play, drifts into open ice. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Passes are released with no effort, but the weighting is generally perfect, if that's a thing. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Always finding open ice, and when opponents try to stop him, he slips past and finds a better, bigger space. He's ellusive with and without the puck. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Change of direction is superb. He can turn back on a dime. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Gets a clean breakaway, hooked, penalty shot. Sweeps left, pitty patt, dekes to backhand, scores. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Summary Seth Jarvis will likely be a riser in the 2020 draft class. He plays a constant attacking style, is a lightning fast skater with tremendous agility and technique. His hands are excellent and he gets his shot and passes away quickly and accurately. He plays with intelligence and mobility and seems to be a highly competitive player. I see him as a late first rounder with good scoring upside. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Ethan Del Mastro Note Tries to turn back, and his turn is tight enough, but he doesn't get good acceleration as he goes the other way. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ethan Del Mastro Note Up ice with the puck, his speed is about average, maybe a half-step slower than that. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Paired with Hoefenmayer. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Playing a safe game, likely because he has to work with Hoefenmayer constantly attacking up ice. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Tries to force a pass at the offensive blue line. Keating was well-covered, so the pass was not the best choice. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Really nice s-cut backwards strides. He might need to work a bit on top speed, but his small-space skating is excellent. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Spectacularly well-timed pinch gains puck possession and a rapid-fire attack. His choice garnered a full-on slapper from the high slot. Then he stays active, wins the puck in the right corner, and when Hoefenmayer goes deep into the opposite corner, Matier is back to his point. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Keeps his man outside the lane, then when the passing opportunity opens, he lifts his man's stick and eliminates the play. Well done. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Great poke check. Sweeps the puck away. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Summary A 16-year-old defender playing a lot of minutes and asked to cover a lot of ice while his d-partner is actively engaged in the attack. He made some mistakes, but also made some excellent decisions with and without the puck. He already has size at 6'3 and 184 pounds, and skates well. He looks like a very promising prospect for the 2021 draft and beyond. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Note Poke check breaks up a rush. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Note Turns his defender, pulls up, fires a good shot on net. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Note Steps left and uses his hip to shield the puck from the defender, effectively boxing him out of the play. He earned two seconds for his team with a simple shift of his body. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Note Quinn has smart body-awareness--good positional player. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Note Killing penalties, working hard late in the period. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Note Quinn with his second stick infraction of the game. He's pushing the limits, and tipping over the edge at times. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Summary Gets around the ice well, but it was his awareness and hockey iq that stood out in this game. At both ends of the ice, he used his body and edges to create separation or close gaps as appropriate. Plays a smart possession game with a good amount of offensive skill. Good play when he was one-on-one with a defender, and he created on his own. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
James Hardie Note Upright, but gets good knee bend when he wants to go. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
James Hardie Note He floats a lot. Not much urgency in his game at either end of the ice. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Joseph Garreffa Note Garreffa can fly. Head up, slick stickwork, a crackle of ozone as he passes by. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kevin Bahl Note Bahl has a lot of tools, but his biggest asset is likely his cool under pressure. Which is good, because he's not going to beat forecheckers with his feet. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Hands are so fast, he was able to take that pass on his backhand, pull it straight back to his left and release the shot immediately. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Slips his man in the corner, peels into the circle, finds Hoefenmayer on the far post for a great opportunity. Then he follows up Hoefenmayer's shot looking for the rebound. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Looking amazingly dangerous on every shift. The Steelheads have no answer for him. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Turns are agile with the puck. He can twist and change directions with no effort. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Left side on the powerplay, dips a shoulder, digs with his left skate, then slides a pass to the point. The defender was completely fooled. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note The pucks gets turned over on the powerplay, Rossi last man back, and he gains a step on the breakaway then a diving stick sweep disrupts the attempt. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Goes behind the net and pins the defenseman with the puck, turns, finds the puck at this feet, and kicks a pass to the net front to create a deadly-looking opportunity. That one made me gasp. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Even in this forward-deep draft class, I think Rossi has a legitimate shot at the top ten. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Puck comes to him from the corner, he's in the low slot near the left circle, and he one-times it. Perfect choice, no hesitation. Saved, but a great scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Throws a breakout pass off the back of his headman, and the puck ricochets back into the defensive zone. That's the first clear mistake I've seen from him in the game. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Dazzling puck handling just schooled the opposing player. This kid has all the skills. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Rossi talking a lot, guiding his teammates, trying to organize on the faceoff. Then he outworks everyone to prove his point. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Just realized that he's capturing all of my attention. It's hard not to watch him when he's out there. And he's out there a lot. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Puck loose at the boards, as he closes, he chokes way up on his stick, pivots and passes. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Not physical, but will go to the net and battle for position. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Summary Rossi continues to impress with every viewing. His work rate is off the charts, with constant effort on display on every shift. He plays such a smart, effective and simple game, with excellent wheels and soft hands. He has a variety of shooting options, his vision is excellent, and his decisions are nearly always spot on. He's a leader on the ice, playing his draft year like he's a overager veteran. His commitment to defense shows not only competitive nature but his on-ice command of the game, as well. He may be on the smaller side, but at 5'9 and 179 pounds he packs a lot of foot and hand strength into his frame and he doesn't look small on the ice. He is a multitool player and a top, top prospect in a deep class. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note On the right point, puck comes around the rim to him, and he is able to smoothly pull the puck off the wall with his backhand, slide to the forehand, and rip a shot. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note And there is Hoefenmayer's weakness: he just got caught lunging for a poke check in his own end and allows the attacker to step around him and get a clean shot on goal. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note Uses his speed and long stick, takes a good angle, and drives the puck carrier to the boards, then Hoefenmayer knocks the puck free. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note Another bomb from Hoefenmayer. He's just firing shots on net one after another. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note Defending a 5-on-3, so the coach has confidence in his defensive capabilities. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Summary Credited with six shots in this game, but he must have had at least twice as many attempts. When he's on the ice, the puck finds him. Still work to do in his zone, but outside of his zone, he's a threat, for certain. Unlike some other highly offense-oriented defenders of recent years, Hoefenmayer looks like he is committed to improving his defensive game and willing to put in the hard work in his zone. He's likely a player that will need to prove his worth and polish his two-way game in the AHL for a couple of years, but he also looks NHL capable. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Thomas Harley Note Harley can truly skate. Wind-like, that one. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ty Collins Note First step looks a little slow, but he picks up speed well after that. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ty Collins Note Pulls his man down, holding call against him. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ty Collins Note He's an upright skater with no great technique. Needs to get lower, stronger. As such, his edges are good because that's what he relies on, but his speed and acceleration are lacking. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yanic Crete Note Battling deep for the pucks, wins the fight but the puck goes the other way. He skates out hard, gets an interception in the neutral zone and makes a diving pass to relaunch the offense. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yanic Crete Note Tries to deke around Harley, which was, well, inadvisable. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Adam Evanoff Note Evanoff has been incredible in this game. Facing a ton of shots, he has limited awkward rebounds, fought off traffic, and made several sensational saves even though he's been left out on a wire by himself. His lateral movement is nice. He's a battler, too. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Adam Evanoff Note Probably finishes this game with 50-plus saves [Editors Note: He faces 49 shots, and saved 46 of them.] Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019

Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Patient and steady in his own end. Skates well. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Has the puck in his own zone four-on-four, is able to spin away from a couple of forechecks, but never moves the puck and ends up bobbling it behind his own net. Hmmmmm. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019

Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Looks a lot better with the puck on his stick when he's hurtling through the neutral zone than he does when he has it in his own end. This kid is all heading up ice right now. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note More than willing to get up into the offensive game. His slapshot is okay. He holds it at the top, seeming to look for slap-pass options before putting the puck on net. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Loses his stick, but then uses his feet to shadow the puck carrier, tightening his gap, and forcing the puck out to the blue line. Well played. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019

Aidan De La Gorgendierre Summary Playing a lot of minutes as a 17-year-old defenseman, he is being used in all situations. He has good size at 6'0 and 179 pounds and his skating is excellent or slightly better. He needs to fill some holes, but the hockey iq in his defensive zone is there, and his ability to carry or pass the puck up the ice and drive the attack will make him a dangerous opponent as he continues to develop.

Chase Wouters Note Drives through the neutral zone with the puck like he owns it. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019

Chase Wouters Note Smooth skater. Good size. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Chase Wouters Note Not a speedy player, but he has a solid base and is hard to move. Takes up a spot at the crease on the powerplay and the defender struggles to move him out of position. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Chase Wouters Note Again at the top of the crease, fighting for rebounds. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019

Chase Wouters Summary Skating is good enough, and he is a hard-working player who adds some grind to his team, even though he is more offensively inclined. Will battle at the net, kill penalties, push play. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Colton Dach Note Tall kid with a solid-looking base. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019

Colton Dach Note Physical in the offensive corner, battling hard for the puck. Uses his big body to seal off the opponent. Stepped around, pinched him into the boards, sealed off the puck until he could gain control. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Colton Dach Note Quality skater, but his feet are exceptional when he wants to fire the puck. Uses his edges for snap agility and powers his release. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Colton Dach Note Again using his frame to gain superiority over his rival. Edges and shoulders, stick and strength. He's a tough player to beat in a puck battle. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Colton Dach Note Long stride, moves smoothly up ice with the puck. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Colton Dach Note On the powerplay, slicing through the slot area without the puck, trying to give his linemates an option. Goes to the front of the net, gains position and gets his stick on the puckside of the defender. Smart positional awareness. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Colton Dach Note A 2021-eligible, 16-year-old Center who is already 6'2, 174 pounds. Kirby is 6'4, 198, so it's likely that Colton gets bigger, too. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Colton Dach Note He goes to the net, is willing to take a hit and absorbs them well, and doesn't lose his cool when others try to agitate. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Colton Dach Summary It's clear yet that Colton will have the offensive success of his older brother Kirby, but he's an intriguing prospect in his own right. He was always around the play, using his size well, gaining position and getting himself in spots to be effective. He wasn't getting a lot of offensive chances, but he kept trying to create. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Daemon Hunt Note First shift, and everything looks crisp. Pass behind his net was sharp and accurate. Later, a snap pass into the corner to buy time and space. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Daemon Hunt Note On the powerplay, the Warriors have three guys behind the offensive net battling for the puck, and Hunt is low at the side of the net, looking for the puck to pop out. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Daemon Hunt Note Watching everything on the ice, his head and eyes are active, and when the puck slips loose he pounces and immediately turns the play back up ice. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019

Daemon Hunt Note Out to kill the 5-on-3 at the start of the third. Most of the initial kill was spent in his zone, but he did a great job of positioning himself, keeping his stick in lanes, a reacting to the play. Didn't allow a shot on net. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Daemon Hunt Note Moving into the high slot, gets a pass from the boards and sends a hard wrist shot clanging off of the boards. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Daemon Hunt Note Dumps a puck from the red line, then beats two Saskatoon players to the puck in the corner. He holds back on his speed a lot of the time. But when he's not stingy, he shows tremendous pace. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Daemon Hunt Note Good clear on the penalty kill. He's adept at getting the puck out of his zone on the kill. Several times in this game he's done that with a cool head. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Daemon Hunt Note Big slapper on a puck sliding into his path. He timed that well, blasted it on goal. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Daemon Hunt Summary Hunt can skate. He's got a strong, solid frame already at 6'0 and 198 pounds, and he is easily Moose Jaws' best defenseman--and with Tracey out of the lineup, likely their best player. He plays all three zones the same: with cool intention and a drive to dominate the game. He needs to work on his shooting accuracy, but he has a good array of shots and gets a lot of power behind them as well. In his zone, he is reliable and calm and seems to care more about getting the puck out of danger than he is getting into the offense. However, once his zone is safe, he jets up the ice and gets involved. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note Two nice passes on his backhand from the offensive zone corner out to the point. Each pass was heavy but well weighted to allow the point man to handle them easily. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note Working on the second powerplay unit. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note He's following the puck instead of engaging in the play, which leaves him a step behind. When the puck comes to him, the defender is ready and gets a clean takeaway. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note First couple of steps are slower than average. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note On the left boards with the puck, passes to the circle. It would have been a good play except that the winger was well covered and the pass was broken up. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note Faceoff, puck skips past, and he can't win the race to the loose puck, even though he was the closest player to it. The Saskatoon team is fast, but Alarie should have won that. He's not a poor skater, he just labors to get those first steps to help him. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note In a game with so many good skaters, he looks out of place. Needs improvement. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Florchuk Note Once again, watching Florchuk just frustrates me. Size, speed, hustle, but no offensive instincts, creativity or finishing ability. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Kyle Crnkovic Note Changes direction quickly with the puck. Makes him hard to trap along the boards. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019

Ryder Korczak Note Fast hands to evade. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note Just hasn't found a rhythm yet in the first period. Has turned the puck over a couple of times. He's fighting the puck. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note Smart little self-pass off the boards behind the net, then passes out to Hunt, who unfortunately bobbles it. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019

Ryder Korczak Note Out on the penalty kill, gets a puck, enters the zone, then passes back out into the neutral zone and straight to an opposing player. Yuck. These are the plays that the 16 year old needs to eliminate from his game. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note Works hard deep in his own zone and draws a penalty. His effort while down 2-0 in the third is admirable. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019

Ryder Korczak Note Still driving play even though his team is down 3-0 with just a couple of minutes left. No quit here. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Summary Made a lot of mistakes with the puck that underscores his lack of experience, but Korczak can play the game. He knows what he wants to do, he just needs to get his game to the point where he's more comfortable in tight conditions. He has time to develop, of course, and should he use that time well, he could become a good prospect, no doubt. With Tracey out of the lineup he's carrying the load. He needs some pieces around him to take on some of that weight and allow him to naturally progress. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note Beats out an icing by getting around the defenseman and winning the foot race. His first few steps are excellent. He just won three separate puck races on the same shift. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note I liked this little play a lot: Off the defensive-zone faceoff, he's playing the net side, puck slides out, he steps in and one-touches toward the corner for a safe possession play. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note Steps into a lane and intercepts a pass. Gets tripped but no call. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note He's all over the place, always involved in the play. He just made an excellent net-front downward deflection that should have been a goal. Then he's banging away at the rebound. I'm really liking his game. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note Killing penalties with his speed. He's a threat to turn it the other way and his puckhandling is good enough to eat up seconds. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
