Player Notes

 

Players Noted: 724

Total Notes: 4,564

 

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.

Dmitri Sheshin Note Killing all of the penalties. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019

Alex Newhook Note Has a lot of patience when the pucks come to him. He looks more at ease with the puck than without it, and he seems fine making puck moves under pressure and finding the right play. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Alex Newhook Note Great backcheck, tracks down the puck carrier at the blue line and takes the puck away. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Alex Newhook Note Subtle, nifty move: A play of the blue-line boards, he pokes the puck away then ducks and glides through traffic to pick the puck up on the other side. Smart. Crafty. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019

Alex Newhook Note Another nice stick play as he reaches out, lifts a stick, then sweeps the puck to the halfboards where only he can collect it. Then his no-look, backhand pass was sick! Kid sees everything. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Alex Newhook Note Passes are accurate and beautiful. Pure playmaker. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Alex Newhook Summary He's 5'10, but he plays with such command of the game around that he does not appear to be that small. Excellent skater, but where his game stands out from the rest is his amazing vision, passing and puckhandling. Very patient with the puck. A top prospect playmaker who can center or play on the wing. NHL-calibre talent. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Brayden Tracey Note Looks remarkably thin. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Brayden Tracey Note Set up a good three-way sequence, but after his initial pass, he didn't move his feet and the play fizzled out. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019

Dylan Cozens Note Cozens has a lot of great tools, but sometimes he looks a little too predictable. Still, he's a top talent. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Dylan Cozens Note When Cozens wants to skate he can fly. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Isac Andersson Note Long strides, gets him to a nice top speed. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019

Isac Andersson Note Quick hands to turn a sharp pass into a shot, but he was robbed point blank. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Isac Andersson Note A bit awkward on the ice. His turns are kind of clunky, and he waits for the game instead of making things happen. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Isac Andersson Summary Not a lot of standout qualities, but he has the basic toolkit of a professional hockey player with a chance of making the NHL but more likely an AHL-level player. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Jakob Pelletier Note I wish he was faster. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019

Jamieson Rees Note Rees has one mode: GO! Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019

Jamieson Rees Summary Energy player who makes things happen on the ice. Always going, forechecks, backchecks and has some offensive skill, but his career is likely to be that of a bottom six pest. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Karl Henriksson Note Changes front to back with fluidity and simplicity, makes him look comfortable when the puck gets turned over. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019

Lucas Raymond Note I love this kid's game. Man, can he play. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Lucas Raymond Summary Raymond is a special player, the kind of top prospect forward who gets everyone on their feet when he touches the puck. He telegraphed some passes and overworked some plays, but his skating, agility and balance with the puck on his stick, and his laser shot make him an likely top-five pick in 2020 and young player with a lot of promise. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Samuel Poulin Note Reaching a bit trying to defend in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019

Samuel Poulin Summary Sturdy frame at 6'1, 212 pounds and he uses it to play a north-south style game. Works hard, drives play up ice, and can show some quality offensive skills along the way. Skating is just a tick above aveage but not a liability. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019

Tobias Bjornfot Note Broberg is an excellent defender, but at this point in their development, I like Bjornfot at powerplay qb over Broberg. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Tobias Bjornfot Note Then, on the same powerplay, he proves the point. Sharp pass to the circle, puck comes back and he fires a hard wrist shot deflected for the go-ahead goal. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Tobias Bjornfot Note Activates without hesitation and is effective going forward. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019

Ozzy Wiesblatt Note Decent acceleration. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Prince Albert (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/17/2019

Brandon Coe Note Sharp cross-ice pass through the neutral zone, on target. Lots of zip on it. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Niagara (OHL) Video (With Replay) 3/29/2019
Brandon Coe Note Engaged in the play all over the ice. Looks like he's anticipating well on that shift. Then throws a nice forecheck hit in the corner. Not only that, but his pressure draws a penalty for delay. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Niagara (OHL) Video (With Replay) 3/29/2019
Brandon Coe Note Getting powerplay time. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Niagara (OHL) Video (With Replay) 3/29/2019

Jason Robertson Note Eyes, hands, brain are all superb, but his feet are holding him back. He doesn't have the mobility to create space, and that will hurt him going forward. He'll need the players around him to create time for him. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Niagara (OHL) Video (With Replay) 3/29/2019
Kyen Sopa Note Can really fly up ice. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Niagara (OHL) Video (With Replay) 3/29/2019

Karl Henriksson Note Not much flash in his game, but he's always around the puck. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Karl Henriksson Note Speed is above average to good. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Karl Henriksson Summary Plays an honest type of game with a high work rate and willing to use his body to make plays. Above-average skating and good hands, but projects more to middle-six upside. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Lucas Raymond Note Fantastic move down the left side, dangles the defenseman silly, then rips it far side, clean. Beauty! Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Lucas Raymond Note I like his anticipation and reads. Smart plays executed with urgency and ambition. And his stickhandling is excellent. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Lucas Raymond Note What a goal! Off balance when the puck finds him in the high slot, and he one-times it while falling and beats the goalie clean. Another beauty! Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Lucas Raymond Note In overtime, another shifty move, pulls the puck in and back out and wires one for the golden goal. Amazing hattie in the gold medal game. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Lucas Raymond Summary Excellent hands and feet, especially with the puck on his stick. His shot are hard and accurate and his ability to make defenders falter and reach with their sticks at nothing was impressive. Gets his shot away with an instant release from multiple angles. He beat an excellent goaltender three times in this game. A top offensive talent in the making. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Philip Broberg Note Using his shot more than the last time I saw him. Just fired one from the top of the circle and rang the pipe. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Philip Broberg Summary Skating and poise are Broberg's hallmarks. Not a player who will put up big offensive numbers, but he is a legitimate NHL defender who could play 20 minutes per night and shut down the opponents' top lines. Makes smart reads on the breakout, and if he develops his offensive game, he could be an All-Star in the making. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Rodion Amirov Note On the powerplay, skates the puck into traffic and turns it over. Had plenty of options, so that choice looked mindless. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Rodion Amirov Note Is able to get shots of quickly from any angle. Dangerous with the puck down low near the net even under pressure. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Rodion Amirov Note Flies up ice on a short-handed chance but the pass to him skipped past his stick. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Rodion Amirov Note Accelerates well and continues to remain open to the play. Slides into gaps, then bursts to the loose pucks. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Rodion Amirov Note Nice, sharp pass to a driving Podkolzin. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Rodion Amirov Note Again, good show of hands in tight, finds the puck that drifted off of Podkolzin's stick, and snaps it one-touch past the netminder. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Rodion Amirov Summary His game is all hands with an ability to get a shot off while tight in on the goaltender or defender. Showed good speed and edgework, giving him a deceptive and slippery mobility. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Semyon Chistyakov Note Aggressive play skating up hard to the red line to break up an outlet pass, then slides back after disrupting the play. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Semyon Chistyakov Note Good skater. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Semyon Chistyakov Note Quarterbacking the top powerplay unit. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Semyon Chistyakov Note Shields the puck even under a lot of pressure, fighting off the Swedish forward. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Semyon Chistyakov Note Incredibly patient with the puck, using his free hand to ward off forecheckers, and gets the puck out of danger. He does this consistently well. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Semyon Chistyakov Summary Smaller defenseman who plays a cerebral game, getting himself into the right position to defend against bigger players, and then using his speed and agility to jump into plays. Passes are crisp and accurate and decisions are consistently good. High-quality puck-moving defenseman. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Simon Holmstrom Note Moves well, is always facing the puck, then gets back quickly to help when the Russians get the puck to the net. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Simon Holmstrom Note Good hands to puckhandle around the top of the zone and avoid trouble. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Simon Holmstrom Note Always engaged in the play, at both ends, and he reacts immediately to opportunities. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Simon Holmstrom Note Had the puck on his stick at the top of the crease, but took two ticks too long to get the puck settled, and the opportunity evaporated. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Simon Holmstrom Summary Looks like a quality second-line winger NHL talent who will work hard at both ends of the ice and contribute offensively while being defensively responsible. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Tobias Bjornfot Note Skates the puck to his own blue line then outlets to an open winger. Simple play done well. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Tobias Bjornfot Note This time he skates it to the offensive blue line then drops it into the corner. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Tobias Bjornfot Note Top of the umbrella on the top powerplay unit. Just made a good, one-time slap pass that became a good scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Tobias Bjornfot Note Snappy wrist shot. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Tobias Bjornfot Note Second time in the game that he stepped up after the whistle to get in a Russian's face who was starting stuff. Like this! Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Tobias Bjornfot Note Moves well, long, smooth strides, and agile. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Tobias Bjornfot Summary Safe player, is willing to skate the puck up ice, but doesn’t make risky plays into traffic. Good skater. Plenty of tools to work with, though he may not have tremendous offensive upside. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Vasili Podkolzin Note Loses the puck trying to enter the zone at speed when there were passing options available. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Vasili Podkolzin Note Goes hard to the net, pulls the puck to his forehand and scores. Good goal with a defender on his hip. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019

Vasili Podkolzin Note Continues to try to do too much in the game. He's forcing plays everywhere. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Vasili Podkolzin Note Rips a powerful wrist shot over the net and rattles the glass. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Vasili Podkolzin Summary Looked inconsistent in the game, often trying too hard to take on the play by himself, skating into trouble and forcing plays. His skill is top-five, though, and if he can find the right mix of teammates and be able to rely on them to make his job easier, could become a top-line NHLer. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Yaroslav Likhachyov Note Maybe a step slower than average speed. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Yaroslav Likhachyov Note Throws a shoulder hit. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019

Cam York Note Willing to play physically against bigger players. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Cole Caufield Note He can move. Just got a breakaway, sent wide, then later on the same shift, finds some space at the left circle, Hughes gets him the puck, but Caufield scuffs the one-timer wide. Then he scuffs another one-time attempt later that same shift. Three chances, none made it on net. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Cole Caufield Note Quick, small, active. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Cole Caufield Note Hughes drops a perfect pass for him, and Caufiled whiffs again. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Cole Caufield Note Working the slot on the powerplay, rebound comes out to his stick and he one-times the puck into the net. Finally got a clean shot away and this was probably the most difficult one to connect with, but he buried it. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Cole Caufield Note Can fly in a straight line. 2.5 speed. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Cole Caufield Note Quality passer, good vision and game awareness. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Cole Caufield Summary Small player at 5'7 and 155 pounds, and although he seems willing to get scrappy, he mostly uses his high-end speed and agility to avoid contact and maneuver into spaces. Seemed to be fighting the puck a lot in this game, and although he fits in on the line with Hughes and Zegras, he was not generating offense on that line as much as getting opportunities. He has tools, but needs to take the next step in involvement and creation. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Henry Thrun Note Just got schooled by Mastrosimone, who faked a deke, chipped the puck off the boards, and then just stepped around Thrun to the puck and was in alone. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
John Beecher Note Looks gangly, and although he looks good on his skates, he also looks like he's trying to adjust to his length. A little slow in pivots, a little awkward changing direction. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
John Beecher Note Snaps a hard pass to the crease right on target, but the goalie just got his stick on the puck enough to deflect it away from the target. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
John Beecher Note Only just above average speed right now, but if he works on it, he can improve. Mechanics seem okay and adjustable. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
John Beecher Note Trying to get to the bench, collides with his teammate who was exiting the defensive zone. Beecher needs to be smarter there. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
John Beecher Note Hustles back to get even numbers and prevent an odd-man rush. Showed some speed there. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
John Beecher Note Active stick in the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
John Beecher Note Tries to deke his way through three defenders in the neutral zone and loses the puck. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
John Beecher Note In the leftwing corner of the offensive zone, fires a pass to the slot that had no hope of connecting. There are a lot of things I like in his game, but he has a ways to go. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
John Beecher Note Jumps to a loose puck in the crease and pokes it home. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
John Beecher Note Makes an excellent cross-ice pass on the rush for an assist. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
John Beecher Note He has all the makings of a quality power forward as he works out some of the kinks in his game. Want him to skate hard all the time, though, because when he does, he can actually motor. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
John Beecher Note Gets a good look on goal, snaps a wrist shot that comes his stick so fast the goalie barely flinches, but the puck glanced off the netminders shoulder and deflects up over the bar. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
John Beecher Summary A power forward type who needs to continue refining his game and improve his overall work rate. He does not seem to take shifts off, and his work ethic seems to be very good or better, he just seems to play at 80 percent or so most of the time. Good shot, big player, has an edge and physicality that he uses effectively. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Marshall Warren Note Killing penalties in a pairing with Thrun. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Marshall Warren Note Calling for the puck a the point, and when it comes out to him, he fires it wide of the net. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Marshall Warren Note Has the puck deep in the offensive zone, tries to pitchfork the puck on net, but it's blocked and goes the other way. Warren then with big wheels to get back and beats the play to his own net. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Marshall Warren Note Does well to remain fluid in the defensive zone but keeps to his responsibilities. Moving, watching, getting into the right spots. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Marshall Warren Note Looked calm skating onto a loose puck with a forechecking forward bearing down on him. Watched him in the whole way, made the outlet pass, took the hit. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Marshall Warren Summary Two-way defender who can move up and down the ice with ease. Gets involved on the offensive end and looks good in transition. Conscientious in own end, taking good lines and plays positional defense. Nothing stood out as exceptional, but few flaws, either. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Michael Gildon Note Nice edgework to find a soft space in the home plate area, then Turcotte feeds him and he one-times it for the first goal. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Patrick Moynihan Note Covering the slot on defense, holding position, playing good positionally-aware defense, but when the puck goes up ice, he lags behind, then a turnover and he's not moving his feet at all. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Patrick Moynihan Note Accelerates okay, moves laterally okay, but his straight-line speed looks average. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Patrick Moynihan Note Nice stick in the lane to break up a pass, good solid fundamentals on the penalty kill. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Patrick Moynihan Note Follows with a heads-up zone clearance. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Patrick Moynihan Note Sharp-angle one-timer misses. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Patrick Moynihan Note Always moving, always making himself available when he doesn't have the puck. Goes to the slot, stick on ice, but the puck comes in behind him, so he curls around and attacks the slot again, and this time Gildon finds him and Moynihan one-times it home from just above the crease. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Patrick Moynihan Note Like his defensive zone play. Always moving, calling out to his teammates, communicating. Just all-around solid defensive play. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Patrick Moynihan Note Uses body positioning to protect the puck, but also to preserve play options. Good positional sense and game awareness. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Patrick Moynihan Note Takes a hit deep in the offensive zone at the end of a shift, up by four goals late in the third, and still goes back hard to the bench for his change. Love that. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Patrick Moynihan Summary Being relied on more in a middle-six two-way role on this team, but he looks like a player that can show more. Good work rate, above-average skater, good hockey smarts and game awareness. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Robert Mastrosimone Note Faked a deke, chipped the puck off the boards, and then just stepped around Thrun to the puck and was in alone. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Ryder Rolston Note Really needs to improve his acceleration. First steps are boggy. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Ryder Rolston Note Carries the puck into the offensive zone, then spins off the wall and throws a backhand pass into a crowd of defenders. Needs better awareness there. He was all alone, and would have been better off either dumping the puck into the corner or pealing back and resetting. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Trevor Zegras Note Superb pass out to Hughes from behind the net. Lifted through legs and sticks, right on the tape. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Trevor Zegras Note Zegras is an excellent hockey player. Needs to work on his move trying to pull the puck around the defender, but otherwise his game is top notch. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2019
Alex Vlasic Note Good play to push the puck out of his own corner into an empty space on the halfboards where only a teammate could get to it. Smart, smart play. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Alex Vlasic Note Tall, thin, but has some decent agility and movement. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Alex Vlasic Note Sioux Falls player gets in his face after the whistle, and Vlasic gives it right back. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Alex Vlasic Note Uses his reach and long stick to keep forwards wide, controlling their lines of attack. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Alex Vlasic Note Good read and react after a turnover leads to a 3-on-2 against. He took a great line to retreat, covering the right man as their paths crossed deep in the defensive zone. Good, smart defensive play. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Alex Vlasic Note Another solid use of his stick and reach to dislodge a puck and break up a powerplay rush against. Then he cleared the zone, too. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Alex Vlasic Note Elevates the puck on a hard around and easily clears the zone. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Alex Vlasic Summary Tall defender (6'5) who will likely add significant muscle and weight over the coming years. Moves well for his size, with good four-way mobility. Not really an offensive threat, but makes good reads and first pass on the breakout. His reach is a weapon, but in tight he loses effectiveness with his long stick. Not overly physical but does not shy from contact. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Alexander Turcotte Note Quick release from close in nearly beats the goaltender. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Alexander Turcotte Note Battling at the top of the crease, keeping himself busy and his hands free as the defenseman tries to tie him up. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Alexander Turcotte Note Good speed, but very wide, bow-legged stride. Crossovers are good, but straight stride is awkward. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Alexander Turcotte Note Again scrapping for position at the front of the net. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019

Alexander Turcotte Note Turcotte is a battler. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Alexander Turcotte Note Taking up a spot at the left post and Hughes finds him with an excellent saucer pass that Turcotte just tips into the net. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Alexander Turcotte Summary Works hard in the offensive zone and does not shy away from the effort needed to get to scoring areas, with and without the puck. Has a good shot and release, but all of his work is done at the net. He is a scrappy player who looks comfortable in the dirty areas despite not being a huge power forward type. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Cam York Note Chasing the puck a bit during the penalty kill, taking himself out of position. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Cam York Note Uses his lateral quickness to step into lanes and break up passes or at least discourage attempts. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Cam York Note Smart read on a weak hard-around, and he pinches is, keeps the puck low in the offensive zone, then slides back to the point. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Cam York Note Speed into the and through the offensive zone with the puck. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Cam York Note Has a smooth release on his wrist shot, comes off the stick his zip. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Cam York Note Awesome gap and positioning to defeat a rush against. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Cam York Note Excellent skater and fluid carrying the puck up ice in transition. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Cam York Summary Smaller defenseman at 5'11, 165 but he rarely seems overpowered in his own end, and will engage with bigger players. He is fast and agile, and uses his quickness to his advantage to close lanes and change angles on puck carriers. He can skate the puck up ice, and is fast enough to keep up with practically any forward on the ice. An excellent two-way defensive prospect. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Jack Hughes Note Okay, I swore I wasn't going to watch or note him, but Hughes just destroyed two Sioux Falls players by puckhandling alone, because his back was to the boards and the blue line, but he turned one guy around, pulled the puck around the other and took off. I had to watch it four times because it was just too good. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Matthew Boldy Note Speedy and active with his stick Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019

Matthew Boldy Note Up-ice speed on a rush looks good to very good (1 to 1.5) but not a lot better than that. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Matthew Boldy Note Able to pick out passes when stickhandling in traffic. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Matthew Boldy Note Good wrist shot stopped by a flashing glove hand. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Matthew Boldy Note Just blew past Johnson in a puck race, then cut hard to the net but his backhand attempt was stopped by a sprawling toe save. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Matthew Boldy Note Gets his shot off quickly and with effect. Positions his feet and hips well to be able to shoot the puck when it finds him. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Matthew Boldy Summary Looks like a complete forward prospect. Moves well, has a good shot, works in the home-plate area of the offensive zone, and commits to his defensive responsibilities. Seems a bit inconsistent with his speed, but he moves well. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Ryder Rolston Note Needs to work on his straight-ahead skating. He's kicking high behind him, slowing his return and limiting his speed because of the wasted movement. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Trevor Zegras Note Playing wing on Hughes's line Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Trevor Zegras Note Tries to pull the puck around a defender at center ice, but turns the puck over and gives up an odd-man rush the other way. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Trevor Zegras Note Takes routes through traffic that open him up for incoming passes, creating passing lanes for his puck carrier. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Trevor Zegras Note Acceleration is fantastic. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019

Trevor Zegras Note Plays the game at a high pace. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Trevor Zegras Note Makes good reads and passes at full speed up ice. Just found a puck off of a broken pass and flipped it backhand to Hughes at full speed. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Trevor Zegras Note Excellent spin pass hits Hughes in stride. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Trevor Zegras Note On defense, covers for Thrun who was caught behind the net, loses his stick then drops to a knee to block a shot at the crease. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Trevor Zegras Note Gets stripped of the puck at the end of a shift, and he struggled to get back into the play on the backcheck. Looked tired there, so maybe he should have gotten rid of the puck in the first place instead of trying to make the move. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Trevor Zegras Summary He plays the game at a pace that can match a top prospect like Jack Hughes without looking at all out of place. Fast, crafty, great hands in traffic. At times he tries to make the fancy move instead of making a simpler play, but when he's not doing that, his passes and reads are excellent, and he can shoot the puck. Once he simplifies his game, he can become a dangerous skilled forward. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Sioux Falls (USHL) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2019
Bowen Byram Note Fluid movement patrolling the offensive zone blue line. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Bowen Byram Note Long, smooth strides, uses his edges really well to cut and glide in the offensive zone and is extremely patient with the puck. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Bowen Byram Note Snappy pass out of his zone, right on the tape to the flying Krebs Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Bowen Byram Note Eyes are active skating the puck out, and his passes are right choices, right power, highly accurate. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Bowen Byram Note Recognizes plays so fast, then he makes the right decision and the right play whether that means taking a hit, moving his feet or moving the puck. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Bowen Byram Note Tries to poke the puck away from Clarke, who steps around him a gets a clean look at the net and scores. Byram should have taken the body there. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Bowen Byram Note Skating up ice on a rush with Lavoie, and he easily matched him with speed. Byram can skate. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Bowen Byram Note Fakes a pass to move the defender over a step then hits Lavoie with a nice pass. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Bowen Byram Note Excellent sequence as he covers his man, gets a takeaway behind his own net, then jumps up and leads the rush, cuts left, fires a shot on net. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Bowen Byram Note I get the sense that if there were four forecheckers closing on him, he still wouldn't look flustered or rush the play. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Bowen Byram Note Down by a goal, thirty seconds left, and he's standing on the bench itching to get back on the ice. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Bowen Byram Summary Has the complete tool kit to develop into a force at the NHL level. He has NHL size at 6'1 192 pounds, and his skating is smooth, highly agile and with excellent acceleration and speed. Never hurried, never panicked, gets his team into its best position to convert transitions into offensive pressure. Still needs polishing in his defensive play but not a lot. Looks to be an easy top-ten prospect for the 2019 draft, and could compete for a spot among the second tier after Hughes and Kakko. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Connor McMichael Note Moves well, but just got caught a little flat footed after his team turned the puck over, and he had a hard time catching up to the play. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Connor McMichael Note On his knees next to the goal, working hard, trying to keep the puck alive, gets a backhand shot on net that the goalie covers. Great work while on his knees. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Connor McMichael Note Good pass out to the low circle, and he gets buried for his efforts. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019

Connor McMichael Note Active stick and feet on the forecheck. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Connor McMichael Note Another really nice forechecking shift yields another turnover. Just relentless. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Connor McMichael Note Scores the game-winning goal on a sharp wrist shot. What I liked was how he seemed to recognize that he had a little space and time, and slowed the game around himself to pick out the right spot to shoot at. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Connor McMichael Summary McMichael may not have elite acceleration and top-end speed, but he makes up for it in effort and drive. He does have above average to good mobility, and his mechanics look like he has room to improve, so skating should not be an issue at all. He plays the game hard, constantly pushing into the offensive zone, and is a positive possession player with skill who could develop into a quality middle-six forward at the NHL level. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Graeme Clarke Note Looked a little slow with the puck, but he passed it off and then skyrocketed up ice, banging his stick, calling for the puck back. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Graeme Clarke Note Comes out of the corner with the puck, turns in the slot and fires a wrist shot on net. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Graeme Clarke Note Everything is a scoring chance for him. Takes the puck hard to the center, changes angle, wrists one up to the top left corner but Sogaard manages to get a shoulder on it. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Graeme Clarke Note Slick hands and moves, turns his back to fake a change of direction then makes a nice pass to the slot. Later in the same shift, he dangles through traffic and beats the netminder with a sequence of moves. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Graeme Clarke Note Soft, soft hands. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Graeme Clarke Summary Clarke's game revolves around his offensive abilities and scoring drive. As noted, in this game he tried to turn every touch of the puck into a potential scoring chance, either by passing or stickhandling into a shooting space. His maneuverability and puckhandling allows him to slip into space to get a shot away, and if he fails to create that opening, he has the skill to move the puck to a linemate, but when he does he wants the puck right back. Did not look selfish at all, just purposeful and confident. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Jakob Pelletier Note Smaller player, shows quickness and the ability to slip into open spaces on the ice. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Jakob Pelletier Note Working behind the offensive zone net, wins a puck battle, keeps his feet, then finds a good pass option. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Jakob Pelletier Note Brilliant vision/pass but Leason wasn't able to convert. That should have been a goal. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Jakob Pelletier Note Speed and hands, gets a partial break, forehand to backhand to five-hole goal. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Jakob Pelletier Summary Plays at speed and shows the agility and frictionless skating that could allow him to play at the upper levels. Looks highly attuned to the game, showing high-level hockey iq and vision. Can shoot the puck and makes good passing choices to help his teammates get open. Creative and aware. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Jamieson Rees Note Nifty puckhandling gains the zone, goes below the goal line, quick backhand pass to the slot. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Jamieson Rees Note I like his edgework, very good turns and agility Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Jamieson Rees Note Uses his speed, pushes the puck forward then outskates Mutala and goes around the defender to get a shot on goal. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Joe Carroll Note A few times I've seen him upright, coasting in the offensive zone while the other guys are putting in the effort. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Joe Carroll Note Wrist shot looks deliberate. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Joe Carroll Note Looked fast and fluid on that shift, generating speed without a lot of wasted movement in his stride. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Joe Carroll Note Moving a lot in the offensive zone, but he's just not getting the puck. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Kaeden Korczak Note Covers a lot of ice with just a side push and edges from a standing start. Excellent lateral mobility. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Kaeden Korczak Note Moves out of position, then misreads his assignment and leaves Kaliyev alone for an easy one-timer goal. Has to be more aware of who that is standing there. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Kaeden Korczak Note Speed is above average as he's able to keep up with the rushing forwards. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Kaeden Korczak Note Gaps are good, well-positioned, sticks to his man then peels off to allow the switch and guard the strong side of the crease. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Kaeden Korczak Note Good lateral mobility, looks comfortable moving in all directions. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Kaeden Korczak Summary An actual two-way defender with excellent four-way mobility and very good speed. His positioning and awareness in his own end was very good to excellent. A few miscues, but nothing that experience will not improve. Offensively he did not show a lot of creativity or exciting offensive skill, but his passing is sound and his puck decisions were excellent. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Matvey Guskov Note Good size, maybe better than average speed, keeps his feet moving. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Matvey Guskov Note Digging for the puck during a goal-mouth scramble. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Matvey Guskov Note Looks agile and quick in small spaces, but in a straight line his speed his just average or a little better. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Matvey Guskov Note Long, effective reach allows him to grab loose pucks before the defender can get to it. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Matvey Guskov Note Tries to one-touch a wrist shot and puts it up over the net. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Matvey Guskov Note Solid effort everywhere, using his size and body to seal players and then working the crease. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Matvey Guskov Summary A hard-working player with good reach and net-front presence. He forechecks, backchecks and works the corners, and shows some scoring ability when given the space to set up. Average speed, but well balanced. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Maxim Cajkovic Note Tries to get fancy but loses the puck and fails to make a clean zone exit. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Maxim Cajkovic Note Wrist shot that comes fast off his stick. He gets good flex on his wrister. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Maxim Cajkovic Note Buzzing now, playing with energy and speed on this shift in particular. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Maxim Cajkovic Summary Kept his feet moving, played with intensity and pace throughout the game and although not highly effective offensively, he was able to make an impact on the game during his shifts, mostly through pressure and possession. Did not look like a player with high-end offensive skills, but could be a solid role-player in the pro levels. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nathan Legare Note Plays kind of crouched down, but he just threw a nice shoulder check in the corner. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nathan Legare Note Almost looks like a wrestler's stance. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nathan Legare Note Stick is active trying to break up plays with lifts, pokes, etc. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nathan Legare Note Poor angle to a loose puck, and Okhotyuk beats him to it. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nathan Legare Note Attentive to his defense in the defensive zone, but he gets a loose puck, turns and tosses it into the bench. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nathan Legare Note Has good first few steps, and plays a smart, watchful game when he doesn't have the puck. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nathan Legare Note He'll hit, and with his crouched style, he can push hard up into the opponent's chest. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nathan Legare Note Big forecheck effort results in a takeaway and then a hard, long-range wrist shot easily saved by the netminder. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nathan Legare Note Two solid body checks in the offensive zone as he's trying to get the puck back. Good physical play causing problems for the opposition. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nathan Legare Summary Had a lot of notes on him in the game, perhaps because he was so identifiable with his wrestler's crouch style. A hard working, physical player who was excellent on the forecheck and solid on defense in his end. Gave and took hits as necessary, without crossing the line or getting out of position. However, Legare was not effective on offense in the game, and did little to contribute when he had the puck, which may be more indicative of the role he was asked to play in this Top Prospects game more than actual ability. Needs viewings in a different context. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nicholas Robertson Note Spinning backhand pass from the left circle finds Kaliyev waiting at the right circle for the one-timer and the game's first goal. Beautiful pass, great vision. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nicholas Robertson Note What a burst of speed with the puck, just blew past the defense with a change of pace. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nicholas Robertson Note Holy cats! The vision this kid has shown in this game is remarkable, and he just spotted Krebs through all kinds of traffic and delivered a laser pass--spot on--for the goal. Fantastic play. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nolan Foote Note Big player with okay speed. In this game he looks like he's lacking a step. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nolan Foote Note Definitely slower that the pace of this game, but at the crease he is a handful. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Nolan Foote Summary Did not make a big impact in this game, despite his hard work. Footspeed needs improvement, but he is a hard working, smart player who looked a bit behind the play in the midst of the talent present in this Top Prospects game. He will need to further develop his game to keep pushing his way up the pro levels. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Oleg Zaytsev Note Wins a draw in the offensive zone to set up a powerplay sequence. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Oleg Zaytsev Note Serious effort to get back and try to thwart a two-on-one. Found another gear there, too. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Oleg Zaytsev Note A step or two slow. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Oleg Zaytsev Note Tries a long stretch pass but misses his target and the puck goes all the way down ice for an icing. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Oleg Zaytsev Note Lagging the game by a couple of steps, whether its in the offensive or defensive zone. Looks like he is always behind the play. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Oleg Zaytsev Summary In a game with his class' top prospects, Zaytsev seemed out of place, always a step or two behind the play, struggling to make an impact, always chasing the play. He worked hard, no question about it, but he looked out of sync at both ends of the ice and had an all-around unimpressive showing. In fairness, it could have been a bad time to be off his game, so more viewings are definitely indicated. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Peyton Krebs Note Very quick change of direction and first step. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Peyton Krebs Note Excellent acceleration and movement with and without the puck. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019

Peyton Krebs Note Moves the puck with purpose, having already decided what to do with it before it hits his stick. Highly aware of the players around him. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Peyton Krebs Note Hard stop where the puck was going, makes the defender go past him, then it’s head up looking for options. Nice play. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Peyton Krebs Note Capitalizes on a spectacular pass from Robertson. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Peyton Krebs Note Takes the puck from behind the net, soft hands, gets the puck to the slot onto Kaliyev's stick, goal. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Peyton Krebs Summary Krebs was everywhere in this game and was effective in all three zones. He plays the game at speed and his hockey iq allows him to anticipate the play and make adjustments in full flight. Shows great speed and acceleration, the ability to think the game and use his soft hands to make plays. Has a nice, accurate shot with a fast release. Works hard all the time, and made the game look easy and fun when he was on the ice. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Phillip Tomasino Note Good balance and strength on his skates, absorbing hits from bigger players and keeping possession. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Phillip Tomasino Note Excellent skater in all aspects. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019

Phillip Tomasino Note Anticipates the play well, shows non-stop motor. Good feet, good hands, but his awareness and effort are his best attributes, I think. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Phillip Tomasino Note Does a good job to get loose in the slot, spins and shoots, saved. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Phillip Tomasino Summary Tomasino is a player who looks like he plays with a single-minded focus to get the puck on net. If his team doesn't have the puck, he works hard forechecking, attacking puck carriers, doing what it takes to gain possession. When his team does have the puck, he fights to get open, win the little battles to create opportunities and have a chance to score. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Phillip Tomasino Note Man, he wants to get the puck on net all the time. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Samuel Bolduc Note Big, big player who skates very well for his size (6'4, 210). Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Samuel Bolduc Note Uses his body, is physical along the boards, will put a hit on anyone below the goal line. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Samuel Bolduc Note Williams tries to deke and turn him, but Bolduc didn't bite, and rides him hard into the boards. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Samuel Bolduc Note Puck at the right point, the left-handed shot pulls the puck off the boards, slides to the middle and wrists one hard but over the net. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Samuel Bolduc Note Physical in the corner, quick reaction time to changes in the flow of play. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Samuel Bolduc Note Hard slapshot low but the goaltender swallowed it in his pads. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Samuel Bolduc Summary Played very well in his own end and showed the ability to get up ice and join in on the offensive game, as well. Not hugely physical, but smart with his hits and physical play, used more to defend than to punish. Good skater, nice mobility, excellent agility for 6'4, 210 pounds. A really good blueliner prospect. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Samuel Poulin Note Parked at the top of the crease on the powerplay, highly active, taking away Jones's sight lines, then he tips the shot, saved, finds the puck at this feet and bangs it home. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Vladislav Kolyachonok Note Takes a couple of cracks at skating the puck out of his own zone and the powerplay, but both times he dishes the puck backward and the attack fizzles out. Did not look confident skating the puck out, either. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Vladislav Kolyachonok Note Here's a quality subtle play: at the right point, puck comes out hard, and he tries to keep it in but it bobbles a bit, so he turns a shoulder and uses his body to shield the puck from the opposing forward until he can control the puck again and move it to his teammate. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Vladislav Kolyachonok Note Another instance wherein he's skating the puck up ice and then tosses it back instead of pushing for a zone entry. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Vladislav Kolyachonok Note A hard wrist shot, saved. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Vladislav Kolyachonok Note Starfish Defensive Maneuver ™ does nothing. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Vladislav Kolyachonok Summary Looks good at a lot of things but did not stand out as excellent in any one area. Moves well, reads the play well, and shows good defensive and offensive positioning. Never looks out of place anywhere on the ice, and is willing to get up ice to help out on offense. However, he looked like his game still needs to develop before he takes the next big step. However, the skillset is there, no question. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019

He shows good lateral movement and edgework, but has below-average speed that limits his overall effectiveness, especially in trying to skate the puck up ice. However, his passing is sharp and accurate, even over long distances. In his own end, he positions himself well and uses his reach and smarts to break up plays before the offensive team can get established. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019

Arthur Kaliyev Summary When I first watched him, I was impressed. But since then he's dropping for me. Bad body language, looks disinterested in anything but shooting and mad when he doesn’t get the puck. But he also doesn't work to try to get it back, either.

Noah Dobson Note Mostly quiet period, but he's joinging rushes, throwing his body around, and making a quiet impact on the game. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Noah Dobson Note Calm at the point, a general directing his powerplay troops. Moves the puck. Takes big shots. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Noah Dobson Note Dobson sneaks down to the left circle, all alone, and when the puck comes to him, only a diving Gravel save keeps Dobson off of the scoresheet. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Noah Dobson Note Super confident skating the puck out of his zone, goes through three or four Halifax players and enters the offensive zone cleanly. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Noah Dobson Note His passes on the powerplay always seem to have the right weight and placement to allow his linemates clean one-timers. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Noah Dobson Summary He has all the tools and uses them extremely well. His shot is big from the point, and his passing is smooth and accurate. Controls tempo on both offense and defense. His physical play is understated, but he will throw hard shoulder challenges and he uses his size and balance to leverage other players off balance. I saw at least two times in this game where he showed a shoulder check and made the Halifax attacker turn away from the contact. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Patrik Hrehorcak Note Heavy feet at the end of a first-period shift. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Patrik Hrehorcak Note Good, hard shoulder hit, then a burst up ice, and a hard slapper on net when the puck comes to him off the end boards. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Patrik Hrehorcak Note Tries to line up a hit on Flower, who then dipped to his side and Hrehorcak crashes into the boards. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Patrik Hrehorcak Note Nice play, battling low, takes a hit that could have been called for boarding, but gets up, comes out with the puck, then fires it to the front of the net, where Teasdale rams it home. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Patrik Hrehorcak Note Takes a stretch pass, goes hard into the zone for a two-on-one chance, then pulls up a bit, waiting, and hits his left winger for a deke and a goal. Nice patience, good choice, right play. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Patrik Hrehorcak Summary Physical player that works hard, but lacks the footspeed or creativity to become a top-six player. Does the dirty work to get the puck to others for scoring chances, but not a set-up player or a legitimate scoring threat. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Raphael Lavoie Note Looking like he's playing with good energy to start the game, fast through the neutral zone, even going good on the backcheck. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Raphael Lavoie Note Feathers a pass to the cutter, who never saw it coming and kicks it into the corner. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Raphael Lavoie Note Flying through the neutral zone without the puck, attacking on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Raphael Lavoie Note Heads up long stretch pass finds Asselin at the blue line. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Raphael Lavoie Note Finds some open space in the high slot, gets the puck, hits the post. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Raphael Lavoie Note Lavoie hits another post. He beat Harvey clean on a snap shot from just inside the blue line. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Raphael Lavoie Summary Much better effort in this game than I saw from him earlier in the season. He had a lot of jump, was active at both ends, moving well without the puck, and he had several excellent looks at the net. I'm still not sold on his overall creativity or ability to generate quality chances on his own, but when he's active, he find space on the ice and takes advantage of it, either with his shot or by finding open teammates. Definitely an NHL-level talent, depending on his effort level. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Samuel Dube Note Good hands at the crease on the powerplay, but a flashing right pad saves the goal. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Samuel Dube Note Moves well, but doesn't seem to have the kind of elusive, explosive skating needed for a smaller player, yet. He's only 16. (Currently listed at 5'8, 153 pounds) Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Samuel Dube Note Making himself available for outlet passes, and when they come, he handles them smoothly and pushes the puck up ice. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Samuel Naud Note Above average speed, but just got caught turning up ice before his team had full puck possession. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Samuel Naud Note Fighting for a spot in front of the net, hitting and taking hits. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Samuel Regis Note Slapshot from the point goes wide. Not the hardest shot, either. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Samuel Regis Note Good mobility going backwards, edges, cuts, solidly balanced. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Samuel Regis Note Goes for the SDM™ and Morand lifts the puck over his sprawling body, finds Getson's stick. Goal. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Samuel Regis Note Okay skating the puck out of his zone, but doesn't look threatening. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Samuel Regis Note Throws a puck to the net from the blue line, looked like it was going well wide of the net, but hit something and ends up as Regis first goal in the QMJHL. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Samuel Regis Summary Small, smooth skater, but more of a puck mover than an offensive defenseman at this stage. Perhaps he will be able to develop that part of his game, but is shot seems lacking, so he does not seem to be a threat from the point that makes defenders take notice. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Walter Flower Note McIsaac takes a big hit, and Flower goes after Teasdale. Not a great hit, so the Flower reaction was warranted. McIsaac leaves the game with an apparent leg injury. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Walter Flower Note Good positioning, then a quick poke check to break up a play. Positioning has been sound thoughout the game. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Walter Flower Summary Stay-at-home player who shows good mobility, very good positioning and smart effort in the defensive zone. Will use his body as necessary, but is not a big hitter. He lifts sticks, shows good gap awareness and strong board battling. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Xavier Parent Note Haven't noticed Parent much in the game, but in the third period he's flying throughout the offensive zone, works his way to the net, finds a puck, spins and plants it to the tie the game. Speedy, hard-effort shift catches my attention, then he scored! Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Alexandre Payusov Note Reaching with his stick instead of taking the extra step to cut off the lane. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Alexandre Payusov Note Can really skate. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Alexandre Payusov Note Goes to the front of the net without the puck. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Alexandre Payusov Note Might be the fastest player in this game. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Alexandre Payusov Note Constantly on the attack. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Alexandre Payusov Summary Fast, attacking player who looks like a player with the drive to generate offense on every shift. At 5'11, 190 pounds, he plays with speed and dexterity, and gets the puck into the offensive zone. Decent in his own end. He's currently the Huskies leading scorer, but there is not a lot of firepower on that team. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Jachym Kondelik Note Slow getting through his stride, making him slow in general. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Jachym Kondelik Note On the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Jachym Kondelik Note So big, he can just take hits from Boston College players ans not be moved off the puck at all. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Jachym Kondelik Note Coming down the left side with the puck, he just has no tools to try to get around the defender to make the play. Goes down hard into the end boards. Slow to get up. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Jachym Kondelik Summary Big, big forward at 6'5, 230 pounds, and he plays a big-player game. Solid on his feet, difficult to move off the puck or away from the crease, but his feet are a liability. Not creative with the puck, but a good passer when he has the time and space. Responsible on defense, he uses his long reach effectively to make up for his lack of foot speed. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Jack McBain Note Nice first step, good on his feet. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Jack McBain Note Good move at the blue line to deke the defender, then goes to to the net, slides the puck to Wahlstrom whoe gets taken down hard into the post. McBain showed shot, then no-looked the pass to Wahlstrom. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Jack McBain Note Skates great for a guy 6'4 and 205 pounds. Agile, tight turns, good acceleration. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Jack McBain Note Gets the puck at the center-ice dot, cuts to the right-wing side and goes around Kondelik, then splits two defenders, drags the puck to his forehand to the slot, then beats the goalie five hole. He literally beat four UConn players and the goalie in that sequence! Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Jack McBain Note Throws a good hit in the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Jack McBain Note On the other end, McBain does what Kondelik could not do, and toe drags his man to draw a penalty. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Jack McBain Summary A big forward who is surprising nimble and fast for a player 6'4 and 205 pounds. His puckhandling skills are very good, he is willing and able to dangle around opponents to get to better shooting lanes. Takes in passes well with soft hands, and his acceleration seems gets him into open spots on the ice. He seemed to be creating his own opportunities throughout this game. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Logan Hutsko Note Working hard in the right corner, digging for the puck, using his shoulders to box out the defender. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Logan Hutsko Note Works the left circle on the powerplay, head up, weighing options. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Logan Hutsko Note Quick, aggressive on the forecheck, creates a turnover, and is already looking for options as he corralls the puck. Feeds a good pass to the far side, creates a dangerous opportunity for Mattila, who just missed the net. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Logan Hutsko Note I like his hustle and energy. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Logan Hutsko Note Playing on BC's top line and top powerplay unit. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Logan Hutsko Note Absorbs hits well, uses his balance to dig in and keep his feet or bounce off and change directions. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Logan Hutsko Note Calm with the puck, will handle and step into open areas, trying to make the defense move, then not afraid to rip the puck at the net. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Logan Hutsko Note Robbed of a short-side attempts, gets the rebound, curls and saucers a pass to the far circle. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Logan Hutsko Note Spins away from his man, then his to the point was way off target and the puck goes all the way down to the other end. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Logan Hutsko Note Turns away from the puck more often than I'd like to see. A high-skilled player will exploit that. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Logan Hutsko Summary Never stops battling, is feisty and willing to get bruised up and dirty to get the puck. High work-rate player, fast feet, slows the game down when he has the puck. Nice player. Not sure if he has an NHL shot yet, but the rest of his game is solid. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Oliver Wahlstrom Note Mostly invisible fo the first two periods, then he rockets a one-timer on net that I thought was going to knock the goaltender into the third row. Same shift, hard angle, flips the puck into the net. His shot is so good. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Ruslan Iskhakov Note On the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Ruslan Iskhakov Note So quick, but he just lost a foot race to Hutsko. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Ruslan Iskhakov Note Darts into the offensive zone, draws a tripping penalty. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Ruslan Iskhakov Note Gets a pass with his back to the half boards. A BC player comes at him, and Iskhakov fakes left, goes right and Brown literally hit nothing but the boards because Iskhakov was long gone. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Ruslan Iskhakov Note Receives a pass, turns and releases a wrist shot form the high slot, all in what looked liked one fluid motion. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Ruslan Iskhakov Summary Seemed to come alive at the end of the game as the Huskies were trying to come back from a 3-1 deficit. Highly ellusive with and without the puck, great hands, excellent passing. Very difficult to contain, and easily escapes even two defenders. He looks like a player who just needs to have some more talent around him. Brian Fogarty Connecticut vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/7/2018
Antoine Morand Note Keeps getting good looks, but Rodrigue has been amazing in this game, making a dozen grade-A stops so far. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Antoine Morand Note Second time in this game that Morand has gotten a shot on goal while being down on the ice. Never gives up on the play. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Looking physical early, putting shoulders into people. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Taking key faceoffs at both ends of the ice. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note I like Groulx's ability to work the boards, use his frame to seal off players or protect the puck, then make plays off the boards when he wins the puck. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Groulx isn't fast but he's a solid, determined skater who moves well, has good balance and is light on his feet, and can build up power when he needs it. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Seems to be adapting his game to a style that has the best chance for his future success. He's not trying the high-risk, high-dazzle plays, but is battling along the boards, going to the net, getting into the corners. He could develop into a heavy, pro-style player with hands and smarts. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Stymied yet again by Rodrigue. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Still going to the dirty areas, tying to drag his team back into this game. He's not giving up yet. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Big hit along the boards. He crushed that guy. Wow. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Dawson Mercer Note Good skater, quick, low, excellent balance and agility. Uses his edges to adjust lateral position on the move. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Dawson Mercer Note PK faceoff in his own zone, pucks goes to the point and Mercer uses his quickness to get out and pressure McIsaac, creating the turnover, then he's gone like a flash for a clean breakaway that Gravel saved with a good effort. Nice play by Mercer, using speed and effort to create a high-end chance shorthanded. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Dawson Mercer Note His speed is a weapon. Creates another turnover and hustles the puck towards the net before his feet are swept out from beneath him. He needs only one step and he seperates from everyone. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Dawson Mercer Note Takes a hit to make sure he can chop the puck out of his zone to break up some sustained pressure from Halifax. His team is up 5-1, but he made the difficult play. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Dawson Mercer Note Once again, his speed gets him a near breakaway and he draws a penalty. No one on Halifax can match his pace. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Dawson Mercer Summary Liked his game a lot. Constant pressure at both ends, exceedingly fast, darting and over distance. More importantly, he utilizes his speed to its full effect, causing major problems for the other team. He is 6'0 and 172 pounds, over a point per game so far this season, and he's in his draft-minus-one year as a 2020 draft-eligible player. One to watch, for sure. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Felix Lauzon Note Like his mobility, his constant presence in the game, and his fundamentals. Keeps active, stick on the ice, always aware of what's going on around him. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Jared McIsaac Note He often uses the flat of his blade to "catch" and settle passes sent to him at the point. He's calm and deliberate, but at higher levels, when the pace increases, that's a habit he will have to eliminate. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Joseph Veleno Note Show's good balance on his first shift as he got spun around but kept his feet. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Joseph Veleno Note Blocks a shot then takes a hit to get the puck out of the zone. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Joseph Veleno Note Can stop and turn back 180 degrees in an instant. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Joseph Veleno Note Enters the offensive zone carrying the puck, leaves a nice soft pass to the left side, continues on into the zone, gets the puck back, then sends a sharper pass to the crease that Guay didn't get his stick on. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Joseph Veleno Note Finds a gift on the PK forecheck, takes two steps and wrists the puck past the goaltender. Quick release alone on the netminders from ten feet out. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Joseph Veleno Note Causing all kinds of problems on the penalty kill. Aggressive, fast and strong, forechecking and pushing the puck back into Halifax's zone time and again. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Joseph Veleno Note Wins a powerplay faceoff at the right dot, gets a quick pass back then sends the puck out to the point. He swings out to the left side, gets a pass and rips a laser wrist shot past the goaltender from the top of the left circle. Excellent sequence. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Joseph Veleno Summary Veleno is a professional player. He might not become a top scorer in the NHL, but he could easily become a solid, reliable, scoring second-line center who drives play at both ends of the ice. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Justin Barron Note Displaying speed and agility with quickness, too. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Justin Barron Note Good job to keep the puck in the zone at the left point on the powerplay. He knocked the puck down with his hand, then fired it at goal. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Justin Barron Note His speed gives him good recovery opportunities if he's heading up ice. Lets him take some chances. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Justin Barron Note His right-handed shot will give him extra opportunities in the future. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Justin Barron Note Uses his wheels to track down a breakaway and then a great stick lift to completely disrupt the play. Well done, that. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Ostap Safin Note Tries to tie up an attacker in the slot who had been left alone, and gets called for a hooking penalty. Tough call. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Ostap Safin Note Bad play in his own end while under pressure from the PK unit. Should have moved the puck to safety, but his turned it over instead, and Veleno gets a clear path to the net. Safin couldn't find the puck off the boards and he overskated it, giving Veleno the puck. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Ostap Safin Note Big turn near the blue line as the puck goes the other way on the far side. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Ostap Safin Note Just looks like he hasn't developed much since he was 16. Footspeed is just average now, he looks kind of sluggish in general. Mostly invisible in this game. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Ostap Safin Note Floating around his own end. No urgency in his game despite being down three goals in the third. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Pavel Koltygin Note Goes to the boards in the neutral zone to try to stop a puck carrier, big stop but had trouble recoverying and changing direction after a pass, then he floated into his own zone watching the puck carrier skate it in. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Pavel Koltygin Note Pass comes in behind him, he spins and gets it, then fires it on net. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Pavel Koltygin Note Not fast enough. His feet in general are a weakness. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Pavel Koltygin Note Had a chance to stretch out his legs without the puck. His straight-line speed is okay over a distance, but I'm still not impressed with his skating over all. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Raphael Lavoie Note Chases down a deep toss into the zone taken by the defender, but Lavoie stays on him, lifts his stick, gains the puck. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Raphael Lavoie Note Doesn't hold the puck when the pass is the right play. Quick, decisive passes to the keep the puck moving on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Raphael Lavoie Note Goes to the net without the puck and nearly gets rewarded. Hard pass from the boards gets to him, but an excellent save from Rodrigue stops him. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Raphael Lavoie Note Never seems to go as hard as he can. He shows good acceleration at times, but it seldomly appears. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Raphael Lavoie Note Misses the net from the left circle. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Raphael Lavoie Note Converts a nifty pass from Morand into an open net. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Raphael Lavoie Summary Disappointing showing from Lavoie in this game. He has the hands and size, and he can skate, but he looks like he's putting out about 75% effort. That might be enough on most nights in Major Juniors for someone with his level of skill, but he willl level out fast if he doesn't start getting his work rate up. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Xavier Bernard Note Drops a big hit on a forward who was carrying the puck into the zone at full speed. Bernard had to know that he would take the worst of that hit, but he made the play anyway, and seperated the man from the puck. Nervy play. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Xavier Parent Note Gets low to the ice when skating, works a lot, moves well but speed is not outstanding. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Xavier Parent Note Big diving block of a slap shot at the point. His team is down by four goals and he sacrificed himself point blank. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Xavier Parent Note Nice saucer pass to his linemate cutting to the crease, but again Rodrigue makes a stop. Brian Fogarty Drummondville vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/25/2018
Calen Addison Note Winds up and releases a bomb of a slapshot that missed the net by at least five feet, but the defender may have gotten a stick on it as Addison shot the puck. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Calen Addison Note Moves well, confidently with the puck through the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Calen Addison Note At his best carrying the puck up ice. He just went end to end, curled behind the net and found a trailer for a good chance. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Calen Addison Summary Excels when he is moving the puck up the ice. Good passer, excellent skater and puck handler. Prone to mistakes in his own end, but recovers quickly because of his footwork. Needs to clean up his defensive game, however. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Dylan Cozens Note Not tremendously fast, but moves okay. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018

Dylan Cozens Note Difficult to move in front of the net, just so strong on his skates, gets good leverage. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Dylan Cozens Note Uses the boards to bank the puck around the defender, goes to the puck, creates a chance. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Dylan Cozens Summary Not a highlight-reel player who constantly electrifies the crowd with his moves, but he his a force on the ice. Sound at both ends, goes to the hard spots, extremely difficult for opponents to clear out of high-danger areas. However, he does have good offensive skills, vision and hands to complete the plays he sees. Smart player at both ends. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Emil Malysjev Note Good skating moving backwards, then a quick stick and poke check to create a turnover. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Emil Malysjev Summary Solid two-way defenseman, skating is above average, good decisions in his own end. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Eric Florchuk Summary Has very good speed and skating abilities, but did not bring much else to the game. Pays attention to defense, can push the puck up ice, but did not show much creativity or flair in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Jordy Bellerive Note Backhand pass off the boards to the defender. His ill-advised passes are numerous. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Jordy Bellerive Summary Bellerive shows all the tools necessary to be a respectable pro forward, but he made far too many poor choices with the puck, passing to defenders or to nobody at all, giving away pucks when it was unnecessary. Those types of mental lapses will haunt him going forward. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Jordy Bellerive Note Just saved a goal by taking a dazzling Dach out of the play. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Kirby Dach Note On one foot trying to step around a defender and his takes a big shove, but keeps his balance on the one blade. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Kirby Dach Note Filthy move at the top of the crease, drags the puck and gets a clean backhand opportunity into a now empty net, but Bellerive buries him before he can get the shot away. Dach just destroyed a defender and the goalie with that move. Wow. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Kirby Dach Note High-level puck handler, even in thick traffic. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018

Kirby Dach Note Draws opponents to him every time he gets the puck, opening a lot of ice for his teammates. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Kirby Dach Note Top of the right circle--as usual--feeds a beautiful pass to the bottom left circle but Gerlach couldn't pull it in. If Gerlach would have been able to handle that pass, that would have been an easy goal. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Kirby Dach Summary In a choppy, chippy game, Dach pulled off some moves that were eye-popping. Great, creative hands, uses his size to his advantage, and although he doesn't show elite speed, he is a good skater with excellent balance and mobility. His hands are dangerous, and he has excellent vision and awareness. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Kristian Roykas Marthins Note Works a nice two-on-one break, sends a pass to the left saved by a sprawling, desperate netminder. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Kristian Roykas Marthins Note Getting chippy at the top of the crease. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Kristian Roykas Marthins Summary Roykas Marthinsen is a bottom-six type player with an honest work ethic and two-way game. Unlikely to become a prolific scorer, but a solid player who can gain his team puck possession. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Logan Barlage Note Struggling to keep up while Saskatoon breaks out of the zone. Straightline speed is below average, at best. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Logan Barlage Note Loses his man in front of the net because he couldn't match the agility and quick turn. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Logan Barlage Summary Shows good hands and offensive awareness, but his below-average skating is problematic. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2018
Danila Palivko Note Tall, good on his feet. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Danila Palivko Note Highly mobile. I like his quick lateral change of direction. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Danila Palivko Note Fighting for position and keeping his crease clear. His quickness helps, and he shows excellent balance despite the long legs. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Danila Palivko Summary Tall defender who skates remarkably well at this stage of development. Positionally sound, agile and quick, he disrupts plays by out moving the attacking forwards. Makes a good first pass, and shows confidence at the point. A promising prospect for the 2020 NHL draft. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Dylan Cozens Note Battling along the boards, kicks the puck out, gets free, feeds a pass to the slot Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018

Dylan Cozens Note When he has the puck on his stick, opponents have a lot of difficulty getting it back, or closing him down for that matter. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Dylan Cozens Note Has the puck on the left wing boards, turns toward the blue line, cuts back down the boards, cuts back again, drawing three Saskatoon players towards him, then cycles the puck back to Barlage and jets to the slot, but the return pass was too far in front of him. Too bad. He deserved a chance to finish that play. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Dylan Cozens Note Killing penalties, active and lifts Florchuk's stick just as he was about to shoot. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Emil Malysjev Note Wrist shot from the point comes off his stick slowly, but with some juice. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018

Eric Florchuk Note Like his pace up the left side. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018

Jordy Bellerive Note Captain of the team, plays like the veteran that he is: calm, controlled. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Jordy Bellerive Note That's the second time I've seen him try to force a fancy pass that had low-probability of success, It looked cool, but leads to nothing but turnovers. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Jordy Bellerive Note He's a swooper: the kind of player who waits for something to develop and then swoops into the play. He's not a generator of offense, but he is engaged. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Jordy Bellerive Note Quick, engaged, but passes are not crisp or accurate or particularly well-decided. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Jordy Bellerive Note Skating the puck out of his own zone, throws a backhand pass to nobody. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018

Kirby Dach Note Big body with good feet and hands. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018

Kirby Dach Note Struggling on faceoffs so far, mostly up against Cozens. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Kirby Dach Note Looks like a fundamentally good skater in all directions, smooth on his edges. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018

Kristian Roykas Marthins Note Seems like a player with good sense of the game, recognizes what's about to happen and goes to the good spots, either on defense or offense. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Kristian Roykas Marthins Note His speed is deceptive because he gets a lot of power from his base without looking like he's moving, but he's a big diesel motor. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Kristian Roykas Marthins Note Gets a breakaway, saved. Didn't have much time as the defender was on his heels, but he didn’t try much, either. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018

Noah Boyko Note Not the most physical player. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Andrew Perrott Note Changes direction well, lateral movement allows him to switch cleanly between coverages. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Antonio Stranges Note Puckhandling with his head down, good job to weave through traffic and maintain possession, but his eyes were glued to the end of his stick the whole time. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Antonio Stranges Note High work rate. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Antonio Stranges Note Outworked everyone on that shift. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Antonio Stranges Summary Goes hard on every shift, showing good hands, decent vision, and the competitiveness to always try to make a difference. He was disruptive in the offensive zone, both with and without the puck. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Carter Tresoor Note Nice reach to gather a loose puck, but he then tries to make a risky pass instead of the better possession option. His team is down by four goals late, so it's time to take risks, but there was a better choice to be made there. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Carter Tresoor Note Cuts to the net, but the pass doesn't reach him. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Matthew Timms Note That was a bad turnover. He was the last guy back, and can't five the puck away like that. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Matvey Guskov Note Attentive to defensive responsibilities, he head is on a swivel, checking the puck play in the corner, checking his point man coverage. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018

Matvey Guskov Note Using his body well to take space and time from attacking players. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Matvey Guskov Note Stickhandles well, but its more the use of his stick defensively where his shines, as opposed to being a crafty deking forward. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Matvey Guskov Note Beautiful combination with his line, short give-and-go, he held the puck at the side of the crease and then put the puck on his linemate's tape for a tap-in goal. Great read, vision, patience, and an accurate, well-weighted pass to finish the play. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Matvey Guskov Summary Big, young prospect who looks like a burgeoning two-way threat. Forechecks effectively, plays a solid defensive game in his own zone, pushes the puck up ice. Not a dazzling offensive talent, but he showed flashes of ability and an intelligent game that could develop into an NHL talent over the next couple of years. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Michael Vukojevich Note A nice pass up ice, but not making much of an impact in this game. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018

Reid Valade Note Good deke to get around the defender. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018

Riley Damiani Note Just turning circles in the slot in his own end, watching the play swirl around him, but not engaging at all. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Riley Damiani Note Shows good speed joining the rush. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Sahil Panwar Note Good speed and lateral mobility, takes the puck to the high slot, fires, misses the net, but keeps his feet moving and he finds the bounce off the boards and scores the game's first goal. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Sahil Panwar Note With the puck in the corner, he pulls up in front of the net, stick on ice, and when the puck kicks out to him, he one-timer nearly netted him a second goal. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018
Sahil Panwar Note Playing on a line with Foudy. Brian Fogarty Kitchner vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/20/2018

Alexis Lafreniere Note After a deflected point shot goes wide right and back out from behind the net, it kicks straight out to Lafreniere's feet at the left side, and he buries it. His hands are deadly in close. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018
Alexis Lafreniere Note Nifty one-handed pass behind his back as his line goes up ice. The breakout pass was behind him, so he one-handed the puck behind his back and redirected it up to the player streaking up on his left wing. What a play that was. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018

Elmer Soderblom Note Taking up his spot at the top of the crease on the powerplay, makes a nice deflection up under the bar to tie the game late in the third.

Karl Henriksson Note Point man breaks his stick on a slapshot, but the puck goes to Henriksson, who one-times a slapshot of his own on net. Good adjustment to an unexpected opportunity, Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018

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

Philip Broberg Note Goes back to retrieve the puck on the powerplay, looks up, sees his team changing, skates it into the offensive zone wide to his right side, cuts to the middle, launches a good wrist shot saved.

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

Arthur Kaliyev Note Not really dictating play in this game. In the offensive zone, he looks more like he's just waiting to get the puck instead of making things happen. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018
Arthur Kaliyev Note Cutting circles in the middle of the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018

John Farinacci Note Not really watching him in this game, but he just made a good defensive play while on the power play, fronting the puck carrier going back into the defensive zone, then just dropping him on his butt when the attacker tried to dangle him.

Nikita Sedov Note Covering the crease front on the penalty kill, works his man with the stick physically engaged, then when the shot is coming in, ties his stick up to take away the deflection attempt. Well played. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018

Sam Colangelo Note Beautiful deflection of a point shot. He set up in the slot, deflected it down and past the nettie to tie the game at 3. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018

Yaroslav Likhachyov Note He's played all three forward positions so far this game. Waiting to see if they line him up at D next. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018

Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Strong effort to break up 2-on-1 and follows it up by busting through three defenders to generate a scoring chance. I swear this kid gets better every time I see him. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Skated like a man on a mission to cleanly disrupt what was very nearly a breakaway. The kid doesn’t always show up on the score sheet but he knows how to contribute in many other ways. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note A deadly accurate shot over the goalies shoulder. Bo has arrived! Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Summary Was invisible in the 1st period but really came on as the game progressed. The scoring upside is somewhat limited here but coaches will like the well-rounded skillset he brings to the table. Late 1st unless a conservative team feels he fills a need for them and reaches. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Filip Zadina Note Carries the puck from behind his own net to the right side and feathers a pass out front for a great opportunity that wasn’t capitalized on. Moves through the neutral zone with a purpose and appears to view the defenders as a minor nuisance. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Filip Zadina Note Passing ability on full display as he dishes off a lightning quick pass in a net crashing play. This sniper isn’t always looking to shoot! Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Filip Zadina Note On the penalty kill, he vacuums up the puck in front of his own net and cruises out through the neutral zone, crosses the opposing blue line on the right wing side, cuts hard to the net drawing all defenders then pulls up and circles the net killing a good piece of the opposing powerplay and almost generating a scoring chance. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Filip Zadina Note Got a little too cute trying to gain the zone and coughs it up on the blue line. Maybe he should start taking the defense more seriously. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Filip Zadina Note Pulls off a between-the-legs move to slip a defender in the opposing zone. Are you playing the same game these guys are, kid?!? Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018

Jared McIsaac Note Lines up and misses on what would have been a devastating hip check. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Jared McIsaac Note Silky give-and-go with Zadina to get to the net. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Jared McIsaac Summary He was blasting the puck every opportunity he got. He is in possession of a strong and accurate shot. With his offensive game really turning around in the second half of the season, his overall point totals will not be an accurate reflection of the sort of player he can be when playing with confidence and letting the puck rip. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Raphael Lavoie Summary One of the few minor critiques I can make on Lavoie’s game is that he might need to work on shot accuracy. Other than that this kid has all the makings of the next great out of Halifax. There’s no doubt this guy is a high end 1st rounder next year, the only question is how high. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Xavier Parent Note Tries to dance through neutral zone and gets overpowered, coughing it up. This kid has wheels and offensive instinct but often gets overpowered and needs to find better ways to make his skills work for him. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018
Xavier Parent Summary Multiple times Parent was getting knocked around when attempting skilled plays that probably blew people away in lower levels. It’s easy to see why people were hyped on this kid, but he’s clearly not shown enough at the major jr level to maintain the early season spotlight he had for the 2019 draft. If he can figure out how and when to employ his evident skillset he could pop next year. At this point I’m not sure if he’s much higher than a late 1st/early 2nd but he’ll be one I keep a close eye on. Kris Allen Halifax vs Saint John (QMJHL) Live 3/14/2018

Marcel Barinka Summary Skating needs improvement, which could come as his builds into his 6'3 frame. Work rate was there, game awareness was there, and he goes to the net. Still needs to develop his play, but a decent player to watch. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018

Radek Muzik Summary Saw a lot of ice time in all situations, and his hustle was particularly useful on the penalty kill.

Robert Mastrosimone Note He may not move his feet much, but when the puck came to him in the offensive zone, he rifled a wrist shot form the top of the circle that beat the goalie clean. Zero hesitation, a bit off balance, snipes it home. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Tentative skater. He just turned the wrong way on a stop. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Thoughtless crosschecking in the offensive zone while on the forecheck, with just a minute left in the period. Absolutely no reason for that, at all. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Lots of power on that wrister. Missed the net, rattled the boards. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Takes a monster hit in his own end, puck handling up the boards with his head down. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Has no fear of shooting the puck from anywhere on the ice. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Can actually get good spend when he's going after a loose puck. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Finds a tasty rebound at the top of the crease and fires that nasty left-handed wrist shot past the goalie. He can shoot, no question about that. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note In a game lacking flow and rhythm, Mastrosimone is the guy pouncing on chances. Its almost like this choppy pace suits his game just fine. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Summary Mastrosimone is a shooter. Needs to up his effort away from the puck. His passes were okay, but because he seems to want to shoot everything he touches (and for good reason), the rest of his game was harder to evaluate in this contest. His skating seems to have improved over previous viewings, but he only goes hard when he sees an opportunity. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (Hlinka-Gretzky U18s) Video (With Replay) 8/6/2018
Filip Prikryl Note First couple of steps look sluggish. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Filip Prikryl Note Passive the defensive zone, just shuffling around the middle/high slot area. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Filip Prikryl Note Puck on his stick in the offensive zone, defenders closing in, he turned into traffic instead of making an easier pass to an open defenseman at the blue line. Gives up the puck. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Filip Prikryl Note Needs to improve his speed. Right now he's a step or two off the pace, and that will become a limiting factor eventually. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Filip Prikryl Note Top of the crease during the powerplay, but not really setting screens as much as stepping to the side and looking for deflections. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Filip Prikryl Summary Good size at 6'0 but thin (roster has him at 158) and not overly physical at all. His skating is average at best, and his feet few steps do not help him at all. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note First shift, highly active in the offensive zone, with his stick and his feet. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note Uses his hands well to adjust puck distance when stickhandling, good through tight spaces, turns well on edges and commands the puck while changing directions Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note Soft bounce pass off the boards hits his man perfectly in stride, leads to a fast rush. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note Anticipates plays well, takes good angles to the puck carrier. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note High work-rate player with speed and change of direction. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note Vision to pick out the point man through traffic and get him the puck. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note Making the right choices at every opportunity, smart decisions executed well. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note Constant movement with and without the puck pays off, as Kakko worked the puck from below the goal line out to the top of the circle, sends it to Ranta, then curls around to the crease. The puck finds him and he bangs it home. The best part was Kakko had his stick on the ice, in position, and the rebound came right to his blade. Fundamental hockey. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note Gets a pass on the neutral zone boards, harassed by two Czech players, spins out, dekes around another Czech player at the blue line and suddenly he's created a clean two-on-one. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note Almost looks more comfortable in traffic, it that's possible. Thrives when the play is close to him. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Note Another instance where he outworks the opponents and comes away with the puck and a sudden opportunity on net. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Kaapo Kakko Summary Plays the game so well in so many respects, but what really stood out was his crisp, accurate decision-making and ability to dominate play in tight spaces. The Czechs had no answers for him in the game, and once the puck was on his stick, Kakko was able to make the plays he wanted to regardless of what the defenders tried. Fast, good burst, good hands and a quick release, but it was his mental game and vision that was impressive in this game. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Konsta Hirvonen Note Speedy, good acceleration, jumps up the ice and to the puck. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Konsta Hirvonen Note Sneaky high-vision pass to the slot generates a shot from his line mate. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018

Mikko Kokkonen Note Quick feet, good edgework, allows for quick lateral movements and pivots. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Mikko Kokkonen Note Wearing an "A" in this game. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Mikko Kokkonen Note Hard diagonal pass from just inside his own blue line to the far opposite offensive blue line, hits the tape. Great pass releases the forward into the offensive zone and leads to a dangerous wrist shot. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Mikko Kokkonen Note Collects the puck behind his own net and skates it out to center ice. Looks comfortable with the puck. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Mikko Kokkonen Note Gets back to play a two-on-one against, holds his position well, uses his stick to take away the pass, then clears the rebound away. Well-played defense, there. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Mikko Kokkonen Note Good balance and skate strength, pinning players against the boards and keeping position with relative ease. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Mikko Kokkonen Note Uses his own net well to gain position on forecheckers. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Mikko Kokkonen Summary Got a ton of ice time in the game, and for good reason. Plays with energy and speed, works the puck quickly but without rushing the play, and is willing to either skate the puck out of the zone or make good sharp breakout passes. Pushes up ice and joins the rush when the opportunity is there. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Mikko Petman Note Not the prettiest game right now, but he works hard. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Mikko Petman Note Not the fleetest of feet, but he goes hard. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Mikko Petman Summary Average speed that should improve over the coming months. Works and plays hard, but his struggled to get everything wrapped into a quality package. Has some skill, but nothing that popped out in this game. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Petr Cajka Note Comes alive when the puck hits his stick, like a jolt Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Petr Cajka Note Strong stick as the defender tries to strip the puck from him. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Petr Cajka Note Over pursues the play, and can only wave his stick at the puck carrier who cut back against Cajka's momentum and easily goes around him. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Petr Cajka Note Takeaway at the blue line by proper positioning and stickwork. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Petr Cajka Summary Seems to lack offensive creativity, but he worked hard despite some errors in his own end. Pushed play up the ice when he had the puck, but lacks a spark. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ville Heinola Note Has the puck at the left point, shoulder-fakes the forward defending him to draw him off the boards and then lays a pass down to his teammate on the half-boards. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ville Heinola Note Well-read play gets him to the puck in the neutral zone and he slaps it back into the Czech end, stopping a breakout. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ville Heinola Summary Smart defender who mans the point, but tends more to patrol his own end of the ice. Positions himself well, makes good reads. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Czech Republic (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Antoine Morand Note Good edges give him quick, accelerating changes of direction. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
Cale Fleury Note Puck bounces over his stick at the offensive blue line and he has to chase back, hooks, lets his guy go, and the puck ends up in his net. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
Cale Fleury Note Next shift, gets caught floating up ice in his own end, leaving a huge gap in coverage, and another puck in the net against. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
Cale Fleury Note Takes a good angle to the puck and meets the attacking forward with a big shoulder check in the corner. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
Cale Fleury Note Moves well, seems to get to the right spots consistently. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
German Rubtsov Note Making himself a presence in the corner, finds a puck, wrists a sneaky shot low, far post that caused a lot of trouble. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
German Rubtsov Note Okay speed, but not fast. Pushes guys more than he hits them, but takes nice routes to the play. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
German Rubtsov Note Lacking quickness, but gets around the ice okay. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
Jake Leschyshyn Note Attentive to his defensive responsibilities, then a good acceleration up ice when the puck goes the other way. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
Jake Leschyshyn Note First step is a hop instead of a good push. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
Jake Leschyshyn Note Hard work below the goal line, both even strength and on the penalty kill. Battles, uses balance on his skates to dig in for position. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
Justin Ducharme Note Killing penalties, looking for shorthanded chances but not cheating the play. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
Koby Morrisseau Note A bit upright in his stride, had a hard time with a 180 change of direction, but okay in motion. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
Michal Ivan Note Bad crossover gets him flatfooted and off balance, and the attacking forward blew past him. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
Michal Ivan Note Physical and sturdy in front of his own net. Brian Fogarty Acadie-Bathurst vs Regina (Memoial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/20/2018
Arthur Kaliyev Note Enters the offensive zone with speed, but the defender had good position, so he pulled up short, swiveled and found a better option. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Arthur Kaliyev Note Tic-tac-toe, he's the toe, gets the puck near his feet but gets a good shot on net that only a quality save kept out of the net. Smart read to get to the right spot on a three-way passing play in motion. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Arthur Kaliyev Note Vision was there on that pass, finds Bitten with a no-look dish off the half-boards. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Arthur Kaliyev Note Movement through traffic without the puck is superb. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Arthur Kaliyev Note Quick hands and hand-eye coordination. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Arthur Kaliyev Summary Promising young prospect for the 2019 draft. Has great size already at 6'2, 185 pounds, moves really well and has excellent vision. Plays the game with speed and smarts. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Isaac Nurse Note Quick, non-stop, heady going into the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Josh Mahura Note Gets a lot of power on his shot. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Josh Mahura Note Speedy, confident, works hard. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Josh Mahura Summary More of an offensive-minded defender, but shows good leadership and is always on the attack. Carries the puck well through the neutral zone and into the offensive zone. Head is up, looking for options, and generally makes the right choices. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Koby Morrisseau Note Getting no ice time in the game. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Libor Hajek Note Pinches to keep the puck active in the offensive zone Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018

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

Marian Studenic Note Great agility and edges, really good mover at 6'1. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Matt Bradley Note Moves well, switches to backward on his edges to keep face to the puck. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Matt Bradley Note Good read to send a flubbed pass back instead of trying to turn it up ice. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Matt Bradley Note Getting lots of offensive-zone ice time, especially on the power play. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Matt Bradley Note Bit of push and shove after the whistle. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Matt Bradley Summary Not a huge offensive threat, but plays a solid game in all three zones. Could be a serviceable bottom-six player at the pro levels. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Matthew Strome Note Gets nothing from his skates. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Matthew Strome Note His skating is simply unacceptable at the NHL level. Without improvement, he's not going to make the cut. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Matthew Strome Note Uses his body well at the crease. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Nick Henry Note Sneaky backhand shot from the slot. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Nick Henry Note Decent skater, not the tightest of turns or the fastest, but good enough. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Nick Henry Note Late in the third, finds a rebound in the slot and snaps it home despite traffic, breaks the tie late. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robbie Holmes Note Like his top-end speed. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robbie Holmes Note Not much acceleration, hunched over, truncated strides in his first steps. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robbie Holmes Note Looks like a different skater when in motion. Struggles through the first few steps, but can motor and change gears when he's already going. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robert Thomas Note Out to kill a penalty early. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018

Robert Thomas Note Controls the puck while using edges for a hard turn. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robert Thomas Note His shot is hard and really deceptive. Fooled the nettie on two straight shots, one off the cross bar. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robert Thomas Note Shoulder fakes, hand fakes, stick fakes. Super elusive when the puck is on his stick. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robert Thomas Note Beautiful vision late in the third period, threads a pass through several defenders, but the ultimate shot was saved. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Robert Thomas Summary Thomas has blossomed into a legitimate NHL hockey player with a complete game. Kills penalties, backchecks, forechecks, and when he has the puck on his stick, he's in complete command of the game. Always on the ice in this game, and never looked winded or playing at less than full speed. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Sam Steel Note Lightning from the one-timer! Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Will Bitten Note Works hard on the forecheck. Not fast, but adequate speed. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Will Bitten Note Hard on the back check. Nice speed there. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Will Bitten Summary Bitten looks like a different player than what he showed a couple of years ago. Plays hard in his own end, and hounds the puck, but he looks like a player whose offensive confidence is massively depleted. He was puck skills and a shot, but looked timid in the offensive zone in this game, and his stats show it. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Hamilton (Memorial Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 5/18/2018
Aleksi Heponiemi Note Edges and agility are so much fun to watch Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Aleksi Heponiemi Note Shows off his great speed to get back and stop the clean Ducharme breakaway, and Ducharme has good wheels. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Aleksi Heponiemi Summary So quick, so fast, and has great hands and vision to match his feet. Has all the special tools needed to overcome his incredibly slight frame (5'10, 141 pounds at 19). There is a definitely a place for him in the current NHL, and he could become a threat on a top-six wing. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Colby Sissons Note Horrible backhand pass along the offensive blue line. Just threw it blind to the middle of the ice, and it led to a clean breakaway for the opponents. Horrible play. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Glenn Gawdin Note Feisty, physical, pushes the line Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Glenn Gawdin Note Second time he's taken a penalty for being overly aggressive (roughing, slashing) when it wasn't necessary. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Glenn Gawdin Summary Hard-playing agitator with some skill, but his game is more brute force than finesse. Put up 125 points and 101 minutes in penalties in an overage season, but points are more than his previous two seasons combined. Looks like a future AHL player who can get a few cracks at a NHL roster. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Justin Ducharme Note Killing penalties, shows good speed through the neutral zone as he goes after a puck Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Justin Ducharme Note Uses his speed to get back to break up an attack. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Justin Ducharme Note End of a long shift, but he let his man get ahead of him into the defensive zone and take a good pass for a one-on-one with the goalie. Ducharme slashed him to try to prevent the grade-A chance. Two more strides would have prevented all of it. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Justin Ducharme Note Good read to intercept the blue-line pass and take off for a shorthanded break Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Justin Ducharme Note Quiet skater, smooth easy strides generate quality speed. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Justin Ducharme Summary Speedy, played with a high level of energy and worked hard at both ends. Had a few off moments (see the note about letting his man get away from him), but in general he was involved with the play in all three zones. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Max Patterson Note Tall, long legs, moves okay but looks like he needs to develop into his frame. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Max Patterson Note Acceleration is lacking at this point, a bit lumbering in short spaces, but okay on edges and straight lines. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Max Patterson Note Has adequate speed once he gets going, but he'll need to improve his first few steps to have any future success. Could be fixed with coaching and training. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Michal Ivan Note Plays a physical game, locks up an opponent on the boards. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Michal Ivan Note Willing to push play up ice with above-average speed, but more of defensive-minded two-way defender. 70/30-type guy. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Michal Ivan Note Takes a hit to make the correct play. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Note Strong, not fast, skating with big, smooth strides. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Note Uses his body and angles to shield the puck from forecheckers. Solid edgework allows him to gain superior position. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Note Takes the puck into the offensive zone and fires a shot on goal. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Note With nettie down and out, Dobson with a leg save. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Note On the power play, moving into open spaces, calling out directions, finding spots, rips a one-timer, saved. Like his command of the shift, there. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Note He's quality, and will become a very mobile defenseman with size and offensive control/command. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Noah Dobson Summary Dobson is the complete package for an NHL defenseman. He's got great size at 6'3 and 178 and will add muscle as me matures physically. He plays a smart, accurate game in the defensive zone, using his stick, feet and smarts to gain and keep position against attackers, either in front of the net or in the corners. He plays like a field marshal, aligning his troops effectively, at both ends of the ice. He has a good shot and uses it appropriately, but also makes good, sharp passes in all three zones. Dobson has the potential to be a NHL All-Star player. Brian Fogarty Swift Current vs Acadie-Bathurst (Memorial C Video (With Replay) 5/19/2018
Alexander Turcotte Note Uses his edges a lot to moderate speed and angle. Above-average speed but not a flyer. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Alexander Turcotte Note Second-unit PP time Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Alexander Turcotte Note Great vision from below the goal line to snag a loose puck and immediately find a teammate in the slot. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Alexander Turcotte Note Bad shift in the defensive zone. Looked out of position, jumping plays in the wrong direction. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Alexander Turcotte Summary Skating and hands are there, as is his vision and offensive-zone play. A bit shaky in the defensive zone, with mental mistakes that illustrate more his youth and inexperience at this level of play than his ability. Still looks raw, but promising. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Cole Caufield Note Poor choice to turn up ice while the puck went the other way. Should have engaged there instead of trying to jump the play. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Cole Caufield Note Second-unit PP time, struggling to find a rhythm, losing pucks at his feet more than once. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Cole Caufield Note A shooter, through and through. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Cole Caufield Note Just sloppy in his own end. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Cole Caufield Note That's the second time he's tried to bounce one off of the goaltender from below the goal line. Low percentage play that he thinks he can make. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Cole Caufield Summary Small, quick player who looks like he is always thinking about putting the puck on the net, too often at the expense of other, better options. More than once he looked up ice from his own zone instead of committing to defense. In the offensive end, he buzzed and worked hard, but made questionable choices, going for the riskier plays instead of the more simple options that used his teammates. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
David Lilja Note In the slot on the powerplay, takes a nice pass, tries to redirect but hits the shins of the defender, but he grabs the rebound and snaps it past the netminder. Quick, accurate hands. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
David Lilja Note Plays from the hashmarks down, If he's not in that area, he goes hard to get there. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
David Lilja Note Not the greatest skater. Wide feet in his stride slows him down a bit. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
David Lilja Summary Puts in a lot of effort on every shift, plays the game in the high-contact areas and looks comfortable there. Showed good hands on more than just his goal, and although his skating needs work, he was consistently in good spots on the ice. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Moves through the slot, gets a pass, fires just wide. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Moves well without the puck on the powerplay, working toward open, dangerous spots on the ice. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Puck handles through the offensive zone, gets a clean path to the net, but saved by the goaltender. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Skates with a smooth calmness, covers distance but is not what I would call fast. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Liked how he came out of the corner and found his point man with a nice pass to set up a shot on goal. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Defensive hustle and awareness on that shift was excellent. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Note Nice, smart, simple pass to complete the transition through the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Jonatan Berggren Summary Smart player with good vision and game awareness. Showed solid work rate at both ends of the ice, above-average vision and hands, and good skating. He also shows the capacity to simplify the game, a quality attribute in this age group. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Nikola Pasic Note Skating looks clunky and off balance Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Nikola Pasic Note Edges are not great. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Nikola Pasic Summary Skating needs a lot of work for him to be able to excel at upper levels of the game. Works hard on the ice, shows decent awareness and skills, so if he can improve his footwork, could become a good prospect. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Trevor Janicke Note Looks confidant skating the puck through the neutral zone. Good pace with the puck on his stick. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Trevor Janicke Note Killing penalties, forechecking hard. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Trevor Janicke Note Looked slow on that shift. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Trevor Janicke Summary An all-around good player that goes up and down the ice. Small but solid frame that he uses well. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs US (U18s 2018) Video (With Replay) 4/22/2018
Alexander Khovanov Note Centering Denisenko and Svechnikov is a plum assignment Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Alexander Khovanov Note Gets a two-on-one and chips the puck over to Denisenko who plants it. Proper read, easy play. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Alexander Khovanov Note Attentive on defense, good backchecking, uses his speed to get back. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Alexander Zhabreyev Note Small, scrappy player. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Alexander Zhabreyev Note Out of the penalty box, jets to a loose puck and makes a nifty pass to release an attack. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Alexander Zhabreyev Note Not fair that he's on a line with Iskhakov, who is roughly the same size but just so much better at basically everything. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Bode Wilde Note Left point on the powerplay Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Bode Wilde Note One-timers are low to the ice but not particularly powerful because he hasn't had a truly clean connection. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Bode Wilde Note Again with a one-timer that he doesn't catch cleanly, and this one sails up over the net. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jack Hughes Note What a wonderful look to Farabee who hits the wide-open net. Hughes was brilliant on that play. This game has been heating up, and I wondered who would step up. Hughes did there. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Pivonka Note Pivonka will be a bottom-six player on a NHL team. Wins faceoffs, always working, takes punishment. Workhorse player. Unpretentious game. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Carrying the puck through the neutral zone on the powerplay, shovels it to his left to no one in particular Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note On the penalty now, using his feet, stick, positioning to create turnovers and disrupt plays Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Battler with agility, change of direction and skill. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Centering the top powerplay unit, with Hughes, Wahlstrom and Farabee Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note On the penalty kill again, draws a penalty with pure hustle. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Stick lift and picks Denisenko's pocket Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Acceleration isn't great, but otherwise a good skater. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Fantastic give-and-go with Farabee, who hits Wise back and springs him into the slot. Wise beats the goaltender, but not the post. Excellent play, and on the penalty kill. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note His lack of burst cost him some D coverage there. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jake Wise Note Like his patience there to hold the puck under pressure and wait for the play to develop. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Makes me crazy. Takes the puck deep, throws a mostly no-look pass to Hughes who buries it. Awesome play. This guy is going to make the fans of his NHL team apoplectic. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Absolutely ridiculous turnover? Was the Russian player calling for the puck? That was bad. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Kirill Marchenko Note Leads a three-on-one down the left, pulls up to wait for a diving defender to slide by, then nails Morozov with a perfect pass for an easy redirection goal. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Kirill Marchenko Note Not of lot of urgency in his game, his whole posture looks nonchalant. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Kirill Marchenko Note Nice skater in all directions, decent puck handler, too, but doesn't look like he has put all the parts together yet. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Mattias Samuelsson Note Makes the absolute wrong choice, gives a clean giveaway to Svechinikov to punishes him with a breakaway goal. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Mattias Samuelsson Note Down 3-0 in the second period, on the powerplay, and his puck movement looks a bit lazy to me. Nearly gave another puck away. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Oliver Wahlstrom Note I'm a fan. I'd want him on my NHL favorite NHL team if I had one. Fans will love this guy. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Still haven't seen Boqvist use a slap shot. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Adam Boqvist Note There's a slap shot! A one-timer attempt, but he fanned miserably on the attempt and had to corral the loose puck and reset. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Doesn't rattle easily, this kid. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Filip Prikryl Note Tries to deke and drag, got an off-balance shot away but easily saved by good goaltender positioning. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Showing off his speed again. Such a fast straight-line player, always a threat to go deep. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Wow! Gets the puck at his own right-wing circle while on the penalty kill, saw the point player pinching down on him, and banged the puck off the boards into the empty space in the neutral zone, jetting around the defender and got a dangerous breakaway chance shorthanded. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Again with speed to the outside, another partial breakaway, takes a slash on his hands, get the goaltender to the ice, but a great save foils the attack. Without the slash, Lauko could probably have elevated the puck more and gotten it up over the sprawling leg. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Trying to get something going, but his support is lacking. He's basically on his own in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Michal Teply Note Big guy, a bit cumbersome in his skating form Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Michal Teply Note Below-average speed, but decent awareness helps. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Michal Teply Note Just got undressed by Boqvist. Yikes. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Samuel Fagemo Note Willing to engage physically. First couple of steps are a bit sluggish. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Samuel Fagemo Note Goes to the net with the puck. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Samuel Fagemo Note High-traffic-area player. Looks comfortable with lots of bodies around him. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Vojtech Doktor Note Nice skater, threw a hard shot on net. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Vojtech Doktor Note Gets called for a boarding, but I don't think he had a chance on that. Tried to stop Gustafsson cutting behind the net, and Gustafsson turned at the point of contact. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Vojtech Doktor Note Successful deployment of the Starfish Defensive Posture ™ Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Vojtech Doktor Note Works hard all the time. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/16/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Saucer passes land nice and flat, with good weighting, especially soft for one-timers Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Uses his edges so well to adjust speed and course in order to get to the right spot on the ice. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Not afraid to lead the rush Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Adam Boqvist Note I want to see what his slapshot looks like, but I haven't seen one yet. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Partial breakaway, good save then he's the guy back tying up the trailer to prevent a two-on-way the other way. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Adam Boqvist Summary So impressive as a player, at both ends of the ice. He is a leader on the ice, always involved in the play at both ends, and skates beautifully. He's an it-factor player who stands out, even among the best players of his age group. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Axel Andersson Note Speedy and agile, smooth on his pivots Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Axel Andersson Note Killing the penalty, keeps his position, reads and reacts with little hesitation. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Axel Andersson Note On the powerplay Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Axel Andersson Note Locked up with Farabee, neutralizes and matches his speed with position and active stickwork. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Axel Andersson Note Skates the puck through the neutral zone and wrists one on net. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Axel Andersson Summary Overshadowed by his more skilled teammate Adam Boqvist, but an otherwise quality two-way defenseman. Plays a smart, aware game at both ends, very good skating, moves the puck up ice with either a first pass or skating out to the neutral zone. Handles the puck well, and has vision to be a good distributor. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Bode Wilde Note Quietly having an excellent game, then bam! A rocket slapshot from the blueline beats the goaltender clean. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
David Gustafsson Note Gains possession in the corner of his defensive zone, hesitates, and gets stripped of the puck. Needed a quicker decision there. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
David Gustafsson Note Very wide stride, doesn't bring his feet back underneath but outside of his shoulders. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
David Gustafsson Note Skating is just okay. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
David Gustafsson Note Crafty faceoff win in the offensive zone Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
David Gustafsson Summary Has some tools, but unless he can improve on his skating, he looks like a player that will struggle at the higher levels. Didn't show particularly exciting offensive ability, but could be a solid bottom-six worker if he can get his skating up to what it needs to be. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Jack Hughes Note Literally trying not watch him, but he just demands attention. So good. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Jacob Olofsson Note Fantastic move to freeze a defender and go around him easily. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Joel Farabee Note Speed all day Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Strong and physical on the boards. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Is there an opposite of stay-at-home? Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Really nice skater for his size. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Solid and positionally aware in his own zone, offensive instincts, shot and passing are very good, but his decision-making in the neutral zone is often curious at best. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Noticeably absent when it's time to kill penalties. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Nice hip check. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
K'Andre Miller Summary Continues to confuse me with his decision-making. In general, he's a big body and a good skater, fluid and strong, plays with a bit of snarl in his game. In the offensive zone he makes decent reads, passes well and has a good shot. But too many times he attacks the puck at in the neutral zone (either leaving the D zone or while transitioning back from the offensive zone) and gets caught out of position and becomes a defensive liability. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Marcus Westfalt Note Goes to the net, and flicks the puck off the post. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Marcus Westfalt Note Working against Miller in the corner, wins the puck. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Marcus Westfalt Note Often just shovels the puck instead of crisp passing Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Marcus Westfalt Summary Player who can help his team gain and keep the puck, and has some offensive upside. Middle-six looks like the upside, though. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Oliver Wahlstrom Note The accuracy on that shot to the top corner, from the blue line, was ridiculous. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Patrick Giles Note Using his size to take up the top-of-the-crease space on the powerplay Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Patrick Giles Note Tiny strides, upright with shoulders down Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Patrick Giles Note Backhand flip into traffic goes the other way. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Patrick Giles Summary Not overly impressive in this game. Made some bad choices, average skater, but willing to do the dirty work when necessary. Needs additional looks to get a better read on his game. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ty Emberson Note Calm, maintains his gap, then staples his man to the board. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ty Emberson Note Quality breakout pass Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ty Emberson Note Righthand shot defender playing left point on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ty Emberson Note Good job to use the boards for a bounce pass breakout. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Ty Emberson Summary Good size with mobility and sound defensive awareness. Not overly physical but plays the body well. His offensive contributions were relatively limited in the game, but he moves the puck well, and generally makes the right choice when distributing. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs USA (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/13/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Fakes left, goes right, shakes the defender who then just tackles Boqvist to the ice Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Activating quickly, but has the wheels to get back to his coverage when the puck goes the other way. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Excellent skater Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Uses his stick and speed to disrupt a potential breakaway - smart, fast play. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Skating is effortless and so fast and agile, allows him to engage quickly and recover, but his smarts keeps him out of trouble in the first place. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Trying so hard to make something happen for the Swedes. All over the offensive zone on that powerplay sequence. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Got a lot of power on that wrist shot, just inches wide Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Slings his shot more than really leaning into it, but he gets power behind it. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Note Distributes the puck quickly, wisely. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Boqvist Summary Boqvist is a fast and agile skater, with excellent (or better) lateral and backwards movement and acceleration. His skating is a weapon at both ends of the ice. He is a smart player who makes good reads, and will lead rushes out of his own end. Defensively, he plays sensible, smart positional play, using angles and his skating to keep defenders away from the danger spots. In transition or on offense, he can beat defenders one-on-one, his vision in the zone is superb and his overall hockey iq is upper echelon. Shooting needs a bit of work to develop a range of shots, but shows power and accuracy on the shot he has now. Boqvist is deserving of his top-prospect status. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Ginning Note Colty legs, long and thin. Skates well, though. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Ginning Note Strides look slow, but his legs are so long its hard to read. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Ginning Note Bad blue-line, backhand pass that was an easy interception and quickly goes the other way. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Ginning Note Passes are a bit too deliberate, telegraphing his puck movement. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Ginning Summary Tall, thin defender who needs time to develop his game. There were flaws (thoughtless passing, positional problems, a slowness in his decision-making) that make me skeptical, but time will tell. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Arttu Nevasaari Note Gets his second goal of the game, again from right at the top of the crease, this time another one-touch tip in, but while getting crosschecked to the ice. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Arttu Nevasaari Note Changes speed to fool defenders Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Arttu Nevasaari Summary Good net presence that resulted in goals. Good skater, especially with the puck, but Nevasaari is a better forward off the puck, the guy who will absorb the hits to make a play, and he showed good hands to convert his chances. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jacob Olofsson Note Smart, calm pass back to his own end on the penalty kill. Like the didn't try to force something there. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jacob Olofsson Note Flubs a great pass and a wide-open net. Gets a second chance from the same spot on the same shift, but gets stopped by a dandy glove save. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jacob Olofsson Summary Consistently involved in the play, but in this game was not overly impactful. He made plays, but not enough, and looked average in several aspects of the game. Above-average skating. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jesperi Kotkaniemi Note Sharp, quick pass to the slot and hits the stick of Nevasaari. Great pass for an easy goal. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jesperi Kotkaniemi Note Constantly involved in the play, gets a loose puck behind the net and a quick wraparound goal. That's a goal and two assists in the first period, so far. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jesperi Kotkaniemi Note Working the left point on the powerplay, just made two fantastic plays to keep the puck in the offensive zone, on the first he zipped a long diagonal pass to find a dangerous chance at the far circle. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jesperi Kotkaniemi Note Skates the puck though the offensive zone like he's on a mission. So determined, fast. Good puck carrier. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jesperi Kotkaniemi Note All alone in the high slot, Nordgren finds him, and he sends the water bottle for a ride. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jesperi Kotkaniemi Summary A constant presence in the game, always working, always around the puck. Passes were sharp and on target, willing to take punishment to get to the traffic areas and made good plays when he was there. This was a multi-point game where everything seemed to work for him. Skating was good but didn't stand out as being a superior skill, but his high work rate and game awareness certainly did.

Lenni Killinen Note On the doorstep, parked at the crease, got two good looks at the net. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018

Oscar Back Note Tall player Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Oscar Back Note Bends at the waist when he skates, more than bends his knees. Has a hunched over look a lot of the time. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Oscar Back Note Skating looks awkward as mentioned, but his hands are deft and agile. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Oscar Back Note Skating definitely needs improvement, good balance but lacks power and speed. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Oscar Back Note Little spin move at the offensive blue line and backhands a pass to the man on the wing. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Oscar Back Summary Skating is an issue as his mechanics look problematic at present. Seemed to look a step slower than the game pace and as such didn't contribute much to the game. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Sampo Ranta Note Uses his edges well, keeps his feet wide apart when gliding with the puck into the zone Brian Fogarty Finland vs Sweden (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018

Adam Gajarsky Note Carries the puck up ice to gain the zone on the power play, then tries to force himself between two Russian defenders and gives the puck away. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Adam Gajarsky Summary Showed moments of offensive awareness, but was not effective in general. Had a good work rate, but made some poor decisions with and away from the puck, and was a non-factor in the game Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Out to kill a 5-on-3 powerplay Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018

Andrei Svechnikov Note Well-placed pass finds Denisenko in the high slot for a one-timer goal. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note The number of tools that he has and uses appropriately to keep puck possession is astounding at times. He'll use his size, reach, stick lifts, positioning, quickness, strength, all alternating with intelligent choices and quick hands and awareness are well matched. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Possession machine: weaves through traffic in the neutral zone, gains the zone, makes a power move to the net, wards off the defender with his body, changes direction, gets a good wraparound chance. At least four opponents tried to get the puck from him, and not one of them was close. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Showing off his passing skills on that sequence. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Note Up 6-2, five minutes left in the 3rd and he's out on the penalty kill. Intercepts a pass in the offensive zone, then dekes, waits, and that’s a shorthanded goal. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Andrei Svechnikov Summary Not a lot more to say about Svechnikov. Big, high iq, excellent hands and tremendous puck possession player. I liked that he was not forcing passes in this game, and instead playing inside the flow of the game. Svechnikov is a natural talent who would be first overall in the 2018 draft if not for the brilliance that is Dahlin. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Grigory Denisenko Note Skating is very good, nice crossover steps, generates good speed going backwards while controlling the puck. Offensive IQ is really good. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Grigory Denisenko Note Patiently working the puck on the left half-boards, buying time, then wires a pass cross ice to Svechnikov, hard, right on the tape through traffic. Great pass. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Grigory Denisenko Note Gets good jump up ice, draws a penalty shot! For his shot, he starts wide left, glides into the slot, and wrists one far side above a low glove from Dostal. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Grigory Denisenko Note Calm with the puck, changes speed easily while in possession, gets the defender to move and then capitalizes on the open space. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Grigory Denisenko Note Great backcheck play to break up a potential 2-on-1 and gets a clean takeaway. Up 6-2 and working hard to stop attacks. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Grigory Denisenko Summary Smart hockey player with top-notch vision and offensive abilities, but who works hard on the back check and kills penalties. Worked incredibly well with Svechnikov, and the two were devastating on the ice together in this game. Quick hands and really patient with the puck on his stick. He's a playmaker with a shot and the ability to put the puck in the net. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Ivan Morozov Note Picks off a slow, lazy pass in the neutral zone, then hits the offensive zone, rips one far side, bar down from the circle. Great read, nasty shot, all on a 3-on-5 penalty kill Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Shows good hand/eye to find a rebound and snap it home for the game's first goal Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Working the slot on the powerplay Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Works hard to get a shot away with a Russian player on his back, then goes hard and awkwardly into the boards. Looks like a shoulder injury. Gets helped off the ice, bent double with his arm immobile. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Back on the ice in the second period after that nasty-looking crash into the corner boards in the first. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Shows excellent play awareness to intercept a pass in his own zone. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Stupendous vision to find the backhand pass around a defender to find a teammate cutting across the end line for a far post chance that draws a penalty. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note More displays of vision as he fakes and finds a teammate at the post, who then misses a wide-open net high. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Fast, creates a breakaway, but a really good save stops him. Gained two steps on the defender in the puck race. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Puck race, uses his reach to poke the puck forward ahead of the defender, then uses his speed to get around him, but runs out of ice Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Hard slapper puts a defender to the ice. Lauko has easily been the Czechs' most dangerous player. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Horrible slash against Svechnikov. Frustration play down 4-2 in the third as Svechnikov was alone in the slot. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Note Hard power move down the right wing, keeps the puck to the outside, drops his shoulder, drives the net and chips the puck up just over the bar. Speed and power wide with good hands on that play. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Jakub Lauko Summary Lots of tools with high iq and vision, skates well and shows good instincts at both ends of the ice. Played hard on every shift, and showed a lot of competitiveness in coming back to the ice after that bad-looking moment in the first period. Might not have the elite-level talent, but he's a good, smart hockey player Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018
Michal Kvasnica Note Skating is smooth and powerful, backwards and transitioning Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (5 Nations 2018) Video (With Replay) 2/15/2018

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

Evan Bouchard Note Tracks back to the puck so well, so calm and in control Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Evan Bouchard Note How does he always end up where the puck is? Offensive zone, defensive zone, wherever. Puck goes to a player, it's often Bouchard. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Evan Bouchard Note Typifying his smart play, he brings the puck into the offensive zone, drops the puck to a trailing forward, then closes the gap to the defender and lifts his stick to give the new puck carrier more time and space to make a play. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Evan Bouchard Note Joins the shorthanded rush, and Foudy finds him trailing and Bouchard one-times it up over the goalie's shoulder, bar-down shorthanded goal. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Evan Bouchard Note Ridiculous patience then a fake shot, pass perfectly on the tape through traffic finds Formenton behind the defense for an easy backhand-forehand goal Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Evan Bouchard Summary Big offensive-defenseman (6'2, 192) who captains the London Knights as if he was born to play that role. Always engaged in the play, whether fronting the oppositions top attackers or creating or joining a rush. Has a nose for the net, a variety of offensive weapons, but yet is the first guy back to the defensive zone. Chooses his attacks wisely and is rarely out of position. Could be a top-five pick in his draft class. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018
Liam Foudy Note High-level speed on display early. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs London (OHL) Video (With Replay) 2/2/2018

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

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

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

Evan Bouchard Note Moves the puck with a purpose and decisiveness, picking out the right play and executing. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Evan Bouchard Note Shot is hard, accurate, dangerous. Even his wrist shots hit the target with an almost nasty fury. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Filip Zadina Note Feels backside pressure, tucks the pucks in toward his feet as the opposing player overcommits, then pulls the puck back out into position and gets a clean shot on goal Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Filip Zadina Note Disguises his release point so well. I've watched his goal several times, and I always think that he's going top right corner, but he goes low left instead. Just amazing release. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Filip Zadina Note Anytime the puck is near him, there's a good chance it is going into the net. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Jared McIsaac Note Tries to intercept a pass instead of covering his man and allows a clean breakaway. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Joseph Veleno Note Strong on the puck but just turned it over because he was trying to deke past two players when he had better passing options Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Kirill Nizhnikov Note Poor angle to try to cut off the puck carrier who gets a clear path into the zone. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Liam Foudy Note So fast and uses his speed to great effect Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018

Noel Serron Note Hands are good in small spaces, gets off a backhand attempt from a rebound in the paint. Uses his size well, too. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Noel Serron Note Shows off those hands while under contact and pressure, tips a point shot for the goal. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Noel Serron Note Hands and feet are well-coordinated and both are crafty, which is a scary combo for a guy that big. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Rasmus Sandin Note Not afraid to launch wrist shots from the blue line. Decent zip and accuracy, getting pucks through traffic. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Rasmus Sandin Note Like his physical play, whether with a hit, body positioning, or pinning guys against the boards. Strong against bigger players. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Ryan Merkley Note Handles the puck as if his mom has called him in for dinner and he doesn't want to stop playing yet, so he's just circling around with the puck, looking for something clever to do. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Ty Smith Note Horrible turnover, just passed it straight to a forechecking forward. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game Video (With Replay) 1/25/2018
Alexander Alexeyev Note Fluid on his feet, slides over to get a pass, then slides back to his left and threads a diagonal pass to the opposite corner for the game's first goal. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Alexander Alexeyev Note Hip check at the blue line flattens the attacking forward. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Alexander Alexeyev Note Comes on the ice from a shift change and reads a Moose Jaw attack. Gets position, active stick breaks up a scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Alexander Alexeyev Note Defensive-zone awareness is excellent Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Alexander Alexeyev Summary Skating is a strong point, but his smarts and offensive vision stand out in his game. High hockey iq and ability to rapidly assess game situations and make the right decisions, and his feet allow him to get the right spot on the ice to make the smart play. Quality two-defender with offensive upside. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Brayden Burke Note Last guy back on the backcheck, floating to his own end behind even the opposing defensemen Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018

Brayden Burke Note Forcing passes into the slot on the powerplay when the better play is to the point Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Brayden Burke Note Gets a goal by driving to the front of the net and Peckford finds him from the boards. If Burke skated like that all over the ice, he'd be a much better player. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Brayden Burke Note His game in one sequence: puck on his stick in the offensive zone, shows fancy footwork and puck handling to work around a defender, pulls up, forces a backhand pass to the low boards, intercepted, easy zone clearance for the opposition. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Brayden Burke Summary There's no doubt about his offensive play--his hands are excellent, he gets his shot of quickly with power and good accuracy whether it’s a wrist shot, slapshot or one-timers. His passes are accurate when he picks out the right play. On the down side, he forces the play too often, making high-risk choices and at times just giving up the puck when he runs out of skating room. Shows little effort on defense or away from the puck. Vision is great, awareness is not, and his lack of competitive effort is a major concern. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Chris Douglas Note Top penalty kill unit play, which isn't surprising considering how dogged he has been as a defender. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Chris Douglas Note Hard work at the blue line creates a turnover, then he goes to the net and is rewarded by a perfect pass that he puts into the back of the net for a tying goal in the second period. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Chris Douglas Note Generates speed, but it takes him a few strides to get to pace Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Chris Douglas Summary Hard worker, reliable defensive forward who kills penalties and makes an impact at both ends of the ice. Good top-end speed but lacks burst that he'll need at higher levels in order to effective with his style of play. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Chris Hartje Note Carries the puck up ice with confidence, head up all the way, smooth and easy Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Dawson Barteaux Note Ties up his man, keeps his body in the way, switches off well when necessary. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Dawson Barteaux Note Solid defensive sequence, ties up his man at the crease, then goes to the boards to cover him, then gets back to the front of the net in position and lifts a stick to prevent a shot Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Dawson Barteaux Note Surprisingly good speed. Doesn't look fast but then he's winning all the puck chases. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Dawson Barteaux Note Gets a loose puck and has a winger with a wide-open shot, but flubs the pass and puts it behind the winger and an open net goes untested. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Dawson Barteaux Summary Defensive blueliner with above average skating ability and good positioning and presence in his own end. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Jacob Herauf Note Looks comfortable skating backwards, calling out instructions, making a smart defensive plays with good positioning Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Jett Woo Note Offensive zone faceoff won, puck to the middle, and Woo takes two steps up from the blue line and snaps a shot on net. I like his quickness and body angle to get a good, powerful shot off Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Jett Woo Note Skating is very good, mobility excellent with the puck or when trying to gain position. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Jett Woo Note Love his skating and multidirectional agility Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Jett Woo Summary Excellent skater with a solid build at 6'0, 205, though he doesn't look stocky (may be taller than the listed height). Reads the play well, showing good awareness positioning at both ends of the ice. Physical play in the game was limited primarily to solid body positioning, but he does not shy away from contact. Looks confident and calm in all situations and shows good iq and awareness at both ends. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Justin Almeida Note Centering a line with Burke on the right wing and Peckford on the left Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018
Justin Almeida Note Rips a cross-ice pass to Burke for one-timer saved. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Red Deer (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/3/2018

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

Baker Shore Note Fast feet in his stride, but a full extension. He gets nice acceleration but can improve after his first couple of steps. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Baker Shore Note Works the puck well and has good awareness, finds the right pass most of the time Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Baker Shore Summary Hard worker, good hands and vision, quick skater who needs to work on his stride to get more power, but that looks correctable. Has confidence in the offensive zone, but doesn't seem to have a top-level skills package beyond that. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Blake McLaughlin Note Goes to the front of the net on the game's first shift, gets a chance for a one-touch shot but stymied by a great save. Good recognition and positioning, quick-handed response Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Blake McLaughlin Note Left point on the top powerplay unit Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018

Blake McLaughlin Note Hard worker who is always trying to get the puck to the front of the net Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Blake McLaughlin Summary The type of player who competes hard and seems like the phrase "get pucks to the net" is etched into his retinas. Skates well, good awareness, and makes good decisions with the puck. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Graham Lillibridge Note Not focusing on him in this game, but his skating has been popping out in the game. Great wheels on this kid, a '99 Yale commit. Small, though, listed at 5'9 and 155 pounds Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Jack Hughes Note Flashes brilliant maneuverability and harassing defensive play. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Jack Hughes Note Excellent skating in all aspects: darting quickness, three-step acceleration is great, edgework that gives him a distinct advantage on the ice, balance and agility that make him look better on one foot than most of the players on the ice are on both feet. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Jack Hughes Note Receives passes like the puck might shatter if he's not careful with it. Super soft hands, and fantastic stickhandling. Snappy, decisive passes. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Jack Hughes Note Chases down and stops and shorthanded breakaway Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018

Jack Hughes Note Again breaks up a shorthanded breakaway by chasing down the puck carrier and taking him out of the play Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Johnny Gruden Note Decent vision, moves well through the neutral zone, always pushing the puck up the ice. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Johnny Gruden Summary Above-average skater who sees the ice well, works hard and is reliable in the faceoff circle. Skillful, but nothing stood out as particularly excellent Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Makes a horrible choice to go to the puck carrier on the opposite side of the ice, disregarding the actual play evolving around him, and gives up a 3-on-1 attack and the first goal of the game. What was he thinking? Two steps back instead of six steps across and that attack is disrupted. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Caught flat-footed and again gives up a great opportunity against, but the goalie bailed him out on that one. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
K'Andre Miller Note In the offensive zone, gets a pass and makes a nice move to step around the forward out to defend him, but lost the puck on the other side of the move. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Just doesn't look comfortable at all. Has fallen two or three times, looks cumbersome and slow on his turns. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Big and willing to take punishment to help get the puck out of the zone. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
K'Andre Miller Note If I had to fully evaluate Miller based on just this game, I'd call him a project player with size and some offensive ability, but a marginal prospect at best. I've seen better from him before. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Looks far more eager to join to rush than to play defense while he's in his own end. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
K'Andre Miller Note Decisions in his own zone are really shaky Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
K'Andre Miller Summary He has the size and some offensive skills, but otherwise left a lot to be desired in this game. His decision making in this game was poor, he was on the wrong side of the puck too many times, and his balance was below average, falling to the ice several times without help. I've not seen him look this bad before, so will make an effort to focus on him in a few more games this year to make sure this wasn't just a horrifically off night. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Oliver Wahlstrom Note Quick centering pass off of the half boards Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Oliver Wahlstrom Note Hard wrist shot from the blue line rattled the glass as the puck went just over the crossbar. Lots of power on the wrister. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Oliver Wahlstrom Note Finds a loose puck at the crease and wrists it home Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Oliver Wahlstrom Summary Wahlstrom is always on the attack. Good, not great skater, shoots hard with accuracy but it is the constancy of his offensive game that stands out. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Distinct lack of quickness and speed. Sluggish feet, wide knees, no power. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Might not be able to go fast, but he is agile with his hands and feet when he's in the offensive zone. Deft stickwork with fast, soft hands Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Really labors when he tries to skate anywhere. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Note Rifles a one-timer from mid-distance, top shelf and the netminder had no real chance to stop that one. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Robert Mastrosimone Summary Gets rid of the puck in a hurry with soft, fast hands and an accurate shot. Average everywhere else, and needs a lot of work on his skating. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Chicago (USHL) Video (With Replay) 1/20/2018
Alexander Nylander Note Nylander is much less dangerous from the point, where his greatest attribute--his amazingly quick hands--is much less important Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Carter Hart Note Fantastic first period, his positioning and angles have been sharp, his rebound control even better, and he's seeing the game better than maybe anyone else on the ice right now. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Elias Pettersson Note Petterssen's ability to slide the angle of his stick and completely change his release point is superb. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Erik Brannstrom Note If not for Dahlin, Brannstrom would be getting a lot more talk. Love the intelligence of his game. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Erik Brannstrom Note Solid play to stop the puck, wait for the charging forward to go past him, then make a pass for a clean breakout. Poise under pressure. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Maxime Comtois Note Excellent pass through traffic, slides it under a defender and finds his rush-mate, but the play fizzled out. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Maxime Comtois Note Heavy hit from Comtois who continues to use his body as a battering ram Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Rasmus Dahlin Note Note really sure what else can be said, he just has so many elite-level tools and uses all of them appropriately. Just a stellar hockey player. He should already be in the NHL. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (WJC 2018 Gold-Medal Game) Stream 1/5/2018
Filip Zadina Note Second-unit penalty kill on the 5-min major Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Filip Zadina Note So good at making himself available in the offensive zone, moving into the open spaces and keeping foot positioning to be ready for the puck. When he does get it, he's ready to react with shot, pass or control. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Filip Zadina Note I like his willingness to mix it up in the corners and at the net, skilled players getting their hands dirty make me happy. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Filip Zadina Note Zapp! When the puck gets close to him at the low circle, there's a slight whiff of ozone as the puck hits the net. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Filip Zadina Summary Elite-level offensive skills and excellent hockey sense and on-ice awareness combined with the willingness to always let his feet take him to the right spot on the ice, regardless of the battering he might take by going there. Zadina is a disruptive player that is a threat to make something good happen at all times, and he continues to show why he should be the top consideration for third overall in the 2018 draft. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Ivan Drozdov Note Above-average skating on his edges and balance, but twice on this powerplay shift he has mishandled pucks that came to his stick and lost scoring chances because of it. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017
Jakub Lauko Note Skating is underwhelming Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/30/2017

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

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

Andrei Svechnikov Note Constantly pushing play, highly active shift yet again. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Summary Simply an excellent player who takes advantage of every small opportunity presented to him on the ice. In a tournament where his ice time was limited by coaching who decided to play older players more often and having just recently returned to the ice after missing 6 weeks or so with a broken hand, Svechnikov still managed a point-per-game production and looked consistently threatening on every shift. Size, quickness, strength and lethal offensive skills. (General summary of all tournament viewings). Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Dmitri Sokolov Note Not much burst from a standstill, takes several choppy strides to get to speed Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017

Viktor Bovbel Note Soft pass back to the top of the umbrella nearly gets picked off for a shorthanded break. That pass needs to be sharper or not made at all. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017

Oskar Steen Note So fast and smooth on his skates. Flies down the ice. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017

Eeli Tolvanen Note Continues to have issues creating his own space, which limits his opportunities on the small ice. Love his play when he has the room, but I continue to be concerned that he is a big-ice player. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017

Martin Necas Note Leads yet another assault into the Russian zone. Brian Fogarty Czech Republic vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017

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

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

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

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

Wade Allison Note Again at the top of the crease, but when the puck goes behind the net, he pushes out to the mid-slot area, gets a pass, fires a shot top left corner that barely misses. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Note Been getting double shifts the entire 3rd period while the Broncos are down by a goal, then even after he tied the game at three. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Note His wrist shot is slow to release, but nasty when it comes off of his stick. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Note Gets the puck at the offensive blue line for a partial breakaway in overtime, shows the biggest burst of speed I've seen all night, dekes and ends the game off his forehand. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Summary Big, power forward type who plays his best game in front of the net. Defensively, he looks like a guy who just wants to go back up ice. Hands are excellent in tight, scores his goals from the dirty, high-danger areas, but not really a threat at distance. His game is all five feet in front of the net. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Note Pitchforks a backhand pass, on target but effortful to make the play. Looks a lot smoother on is forehand. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Note Poor choice to try to push the puck to the point on the powerplay instead of turning the puck into the corner, result is a turnover, odd-man rush and a shorthanded goal against Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Note Lunges for the puck a lot when he's trying to break up a play, trying to use his reach but leaning out too far and gets himself off center balance. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Note Good hand-eye coordination to find a bouncing puck in the crease and tap it into the net. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017

Wade Allison Note Looks comfortable parked at the top of the crease Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Note Another awkward lunge at a puck, trying to break up a pass. Again, he gets off balance and the play goes the other way without him. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Note Diving attempt to disrupt a potential breakaway, surprised even the Broncos broadcast team. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017

Aapeli Rasanen Note Big hit on Tkachuk in the corner. Not often you see Tkachuk get dropped like that. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Aapeli Rasanen Summary Had moments of skill, a bit of physicality, but was also invisible for a lot of the game. Decent wheels, but nothing in his game stood out to me. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Muscling players off of pucks and leaning on guys in the corner, using that size and physicality Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017

Brady Tkachuk Note Hard, hard wrist shot from distance caused big trouble for Woll, but the nettie fought it off. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Gets another chance at a shorthanded breakaway, and this time he leaves the deke out of the equation and just fires a wrist shot up over Woll's glove. Also liked his speed there, pulling away from three BC players who were trying to chase him down. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Looked like his older brother there, muscling his way to the front of the net, imposing his will with one hand on his stick while defenders are tugging on his arm, pulling at his waist, grabbing at anything they can, yet Brady still manages to one-hand the puck into the goaltender's skates, and eventually Tkachuk earns the assist and the rebound is slammed home. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Brady Tkachuk Summary Big, aggressive, intense, with a good skills package. Above average speed, but nothing spectacular in his skating.

Chad Krys Note Just made two ill-advised passes while on the point on the powerplay Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Chad Krys Summary He has the skating, a shot, passing ability and a lot of calmness in his game. Decisions could be a bit better at times, but looked effective at both ends. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Dante Fabbro Note Two tries to clear the puck on the penalty kill, didn't get either one out of the zone Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017

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

Shane Bowers Summary If he had 10% more skill, he'd be a superstar. Effort, intelligence, good skater who looks to have a solid technical foundation to build on, leadership on the ice: just an excellent all-around hockey player who makes life difficult for the opposition any time he is on the ice. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Andrew Peeke Note Wrist shot from the blue line caused some trouble as it found its way through the traffic in front Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Andrew Peeke Note Takes a hit at the blue line to keep the puck in the offensive zone and made the right play with it. Calm under pressure. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Andrew Peeke Summary Continues to develop a solid, responsible game in his own end, with improved positioning and physicality while cutting down on mistakes. Smooth on his feet with a good shot, but not overly active in the offensive game. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Cam Morrison Note Wide feet in his stride, no urgency or efficiency in his skating. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Cam Morrison Note Pokes a puck free at the defensive blue line Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Cam Morrison Note Takes an interference penalty off of an offensive zone faceoff. Not a smart play. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Cam Morrison Summary Awkward stride in a straight line, but shows above-average balance and agility. Smart player with some offensive upside who can use a snappy shot with effect. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Casey Mittelstadt Note Showing off the quick hands early with some nifty stickwork along the half-boards Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Casey Mittelstadt Note Superb pass to the top of the crease that made me audibly gasp. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Casey Mittelstadt Summary Excellent hands and vision, and a quality skater who changes speed to throw defenders off of their angles. Seems passive at times, however, and needs to play at a higher pace more often. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Jake Evans Note Great, soft pass from behind the net to find Burke for an easy one-touch goal. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Rem Pitlick Note Huge burst of speed on the backcheck. Wow! Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017

Rem Pitlick Note Responsible going back and in his own end, quick on his stick, well-positioned. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Scott Reedy Note Excellent three-step acceleration. Generates good, quick power with simple and smooth ease. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Scott Reedy Note A little more passive in the defensive zone than I'd like, but has good reactions and decent gap control when called upon. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Scott Reedy Note Fends off two defenders in the corner, keeps possession, works free and finds a teammate in the slot. Love that kind of hard work. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Scott Reedy Summary Very good acceleration, but lacks great top-end speed and little offensive spark. Above-average possession skills, using his size and hand skills in the corners to fend off opponents. Brian Fogarty Minnesota vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/25/2017
Andrew Oglevie Note First game back after an injury Brian Fogarty Notre Dame vs Penn State (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/10/2017
Andrew Oglevie Note Took a lazy stride that allowed his man to get a few steps in front him, and once Oglevie realized it, he tried hard to close on him but lacked the pace, and his man scored an easy one-touch goal. Brian Fogarty Notre Dame vs Penn State (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/10/2017
Brandon Biro Note Looks like the quickest player on the ice Brian Fogarty Notre Dame vs Penn State (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/10/2017

Cam Morrison Note Lateral movement looks smooth and easy Brian Fogarty Notre Dame vs Penn State (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/10/2017

Alexis Lafreniere Note Takes up a spot a the crease, hops clear of a sharp wrist shot from Krebs. Goal. Brian Fogarty Team Canada Red vs Finland (U17 Challenge) Live Streaming 11/5/2017
Brandon Coe Note Constantly active hounding the puck when he doesn't have it, and going to the net when he does Brian Fogarty Team Canada Red vs Finland (U17 Challenge) Live Streaming 11/5/2017
Brandon Coe Note Excellent speed, tall, good stride structure and technique Brian Fogarty Team Canada Red vs Finland (U17 Challenge) Live Streaming 11/5/2017

Brandon Coe Summary Playing the U17 challenge at 15 (2020 draft eligible), standing 6'3 and 179 pounds, Coe displayed excellent speed, compete, puck skills and hockey intelligence.

Brian Fogarty Team Canada Red vs Finland (U17 Challenge) Live Streaming 11/5/2017
Evan Brand Note Tall player, would like to see him extend those legs in his stride Brian Fogarty Team Canada Red vs Finland (U17 Challenge) Live Streaming 11/5/2017

Jackson van de Leest Note Sticks with his man well despite the forward's best efforts to change direction and turn him around. Brian Fogarty Team Canada Red vs Finland (U17 Challenge) Live Streaming 11/5/2017
Leevi Aaltonen Note Explosive quickness and a heavy lean on his edges during long turns. Really nice skating. Brian Fogarty Team Canada Red vs Finland (U17 Challenge) Live Streaming 11/5/2017
Mikko Petman Note Uses his reach to get the puck away from a defender while on the forecheck, then draws a tripping call or he would have had a clean chance on goal. Brian Fogarty Team Canada Red vs Finland (U17 Challenge) Live Streaming 11/5/2017
Nick Wong Note Lagging the play in own zone, through transition and in the offensive zone. Low-energy shift. Brian Fogarty Team Canada Red vs Finland (U17 Challenge) Live Streaming 11/5/2017
Patrik Puistola Note Dekes his way to the front of the net Brian Fogarty Team Canada Red vs Finland (U17 Challenge) Live Streaming 11/5/2017
Ville Heinola Note Small, but quick, feisty and physical in his own end Brian Fogarty Team Canada Red vs Finland (U17 Challenge) Live Streaming 11/5/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Good burst to get up into the neutral zone on a back check, takes the angle, and shoulders the puck carrier into the boards. Nice Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Takes a wide pass with one hand in stride, pulls it out in front of himself, head up into the offensive zone, then makes a drop pass that was so smooth I barely noticed it. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Looking calmer with the puck on his stick than he did last year, seems more confident and controlled. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Smooth acceleration to super top-end speed through the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Mid-slot area on the powerplay setup, directing play like a boss. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Penalty kill duty, looks dangerous on a counter attack that Fortier couldn't quite gather in. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Turns the corner with the puck wide, tucks back in, causes all kinds of trouble at the net. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Summary The patience, skating and two-way mentality all point to a player who can make an impact at the NHL level. Once he puts everything together, could become a high-impact player and a top-15 pick. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Kid can skate. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Positioned well in the defensive zone, deflected puck falls to his feet, and instead of doing anything risky, just kicks the puck out of his d-zone. I love that play from him. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Took a big hit to make a smart pass, tucking the puck around the defender and just leave the puck in the path of Lavoie, Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Agility, balance, quickness are all excellent level or maybe better from what I've seen so far, and he'll take a hit to make a play. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Top powerplay unit with Lavoie and Fortier to start the second period. This group looks dangerous. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Also getting penalty kill duty, and based on about thirty seconds of that shift, he could easily be an NHL PK specialist if all else fails. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note His game is incredibly smooth: passing, skating, up and down the ice. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Summary High-quality player with an excellent assortment of tools, the kind of player that could be a top-five draft pick for 2018. On this first viewing, I'm not ready to call any one attribute elite, but there are not a lot of players his age that are excellent at every aspect of the game. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Nathaniel Doyon Note Physical, throwing forecheck hits all over the place. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Nathaniel Doyon Note Quick wrist shot from the high slot with a defender all over him. Sharp and dangerous shot. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Nathaniel Doyon Note Disciplined defender in his own zone, active feet and decent gaps, passing lane disruptions. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Nathaniel Doyon Summary Two-way player who has a physical edge, but not a lot of offensive upside apparent in this viewing. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Nikita Alexandrov Note Paying a lot of attention to his defensive responsibilities early. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Nikita Alexandrov Note Wrecking-ball player when he doesn't have the puck. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Nikita Alexandrov Note Remarkable balance at full speed to keep his foot on the ice and ward off an offsides call. That was ridiculous. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Nikita Alexandrov Note Tries to slap a bouncing puck back at the net, but couldn't connect. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Nikita Alexandrov Note Intense player, goes hard and plays much bigger than he looks. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Nikita Alexandrov Summary Born one day too late for the 2018 draft, Alexandrov will get an extra year to develop. His current game lacks offensive flair, but he is nonstop energy and his physical play is a threat. Aggressive forechecker and player who will do anything to get the puck back for his team. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Long, powerful strides with good form. Really can move well down the ice. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Quick read to make a crisp breakout pass on a reset. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Uses his length well to keep attackers away from the loose puck and reach out to coral it himself. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note At his blue line, pushing the puck up ice, had a choice of two passes, but took the one that looked riskier to me. He tried to find Alexandrov instead of the safer option. I understand why, but sometimes it is better to certain. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Long-shift, but he really struggled to get back deep and keep an icing call intact. Nearly got beat out by two Halifax players. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Over-commits to the puck carrier at the circle and leaves a huge opening at the crease. Easy goal for the opposition. Only an early-shift offsides (reviewed) prevented the goal against from hitting the scoreboard. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Attacks a puck at the red line while on the penalty kill, risky but well-played. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Summary Good passer, good skater, risk taker. Needs desperately to add some weight (currently listed as 6'2, 161 pounds) and to cut down on some of the riskier aspects of his game, but he shows good offensive awareness and stick skills. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Good knee bend in his stride, a little clunky on the pivot on his first shift Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Digging hard on the backcheck. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Like his edgework on the powerplay, constant movement, keeping his body to the puck, finding space. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Nice hands to pull the puck close then try to chip a pass out of his defensive zone, but I'd rather have seen him actually make a safer play there. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Takes a nifty pass from Zadina in the high slot, dips to his left, and beats the netminder clearly far-side corner. Soft hands and heady shot selection. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note He needs some work on his pivots forwards to backward, there's a bit of a hop-and-turn instead of smooth conversion. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Slick hands, deking through traffic, curls behind the net and finds Bishop in the circle for a one-timer goal. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Summary The 2019-draft-eligible forward showed good hands, edgework and finishing ability. Great size at 6'3 and still has plenty of time to add to his 176 pounds. Still some polishing to do on some of the rougher edges of his game, but Lavoie is a player to monitor. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Anders Bjork Note Buzzing early, showing off his quickness and ability to jump into open spaces. Working hard off the puck in the offensive zone, gets free to receive a pass and fires a quick wrist shot. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Anders Bjork Note Getting powerplay time, and first to the loose pucks consistently. Such good anticipation and burst. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Anders Bjork Note Finding high-vision passing opportunities and connecting consistently Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Anders Bjork Note Bad backhand pass off the boards in the offensive zone leads to an easy turnover, but he jumps quickly back to defend the breakout with a nice poke check to get the puck back for his team Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Anders Bjork Summary All hustle and controlled intensity, with excellent vision and game awareness. Opponents in the NHL are going to hate playing against him, especially in playoff scenarios Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Jeremy Lauzon Note Pulls a puck out of a scrum and deftly flicks it up ice and out of the defensive zone. Smart, handsy play. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Jeremy Lauzon Note Not sure what he was doing there, but he just slapped a pass through the neutral zone for an icing. Confusing choice, since he was not under pressure and the probability of a forward receiving that pass with an alacrity is minimal, at best Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Nolan Patrick Note Very quiet so far in the first 15 minutes of the game. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Nolan Patrick Note Looks a bit out of sorts in his own end, but when he has the puck in the offensive zone, looks more confident and effective. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Nolan Patrick Note Reads the play well, recognizing that Sanheim had pinched in deep, and retreats back to the left-defense spot all the way back into the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Nolan Patrick Summary The skills are apparent when he has the puck, but he's just not ready for the NHL yet. The year lost to injuries in 2016-2017 juniors needs to be regained this season, but he should be ready for 2018-2019 Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Oscar Lindblom Note Not fast, really, but smooth quickness and so well balanced on his skates, helps him tremendously in front of the net and in the corners where he will be most effective. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Oscar Lindblom Note Needs to get some hustle, showing no jump in this game so far, at all. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Oscar Lindblom Note That was a nice shift in the defensive zone, active stick, quick feet, poised aggressive defense, then a quick transition up the ice after the turnover. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Oscar Lindblom Summary Lindblom is a very good hockey player with strong skates and balance and who knows how to convert and extend plays low in the offensive zone. He is not a player who will beat defenders one-on-one, but he will torture them once in the zone by just making plays happen. Needs to pick up the pace a bit, but made good in-game adjustments in this contest that helps my opinion of his play. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Note Soft pass through the neutral zone in transition, hits the headman in stride for a simple offensive-zone entry Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Note Gets up into the offensive play and gets a good, low shot on net that Rask fought off. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Note Another time up ice, this time flying up to join the rush, zips a nice wrist shot that beats Rask this time. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Note So aggressive trying to move up ice all the time without the puck. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Note Good display of gap control and stickwork to win a one-on-one play against the boards. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Summary Offensive defender whose defensive game needs some improvement, but is NHL caliber already. His skating is improved and his non-stop intent to get involved in the offensive play is both fun to watch and dangerous at the same time. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Zachary Senyshyn Note Hard wrist shot from the top of the left circle, but not challenging for the netminder. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Zachary Senyshyn Summary Still seeing some of the issues I've seen from him in the past, namely that when he has the puck or has a chance of getting the puck, he shows effort and skills that could make him a quality NHLer, but without the puck, he drifts and loses energy and focus. If he can pull that around and play with similar work rates at both ends of the ice, he could be a solid middle-six forward in the NHL. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Kerby Rychel Note Skating is improved, but could still be better in a straight line. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Logan Brown Note Snaps a wrist shot from the dot and beats Andersen easily. Sweet release after a good play to create the initial turnover and begin the sequence. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Logan Brown Note Another nice play, this team swooping into the offensive zone from the blue line to collect a loose puck and get it quickly on net. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Logan Brown Note Moves so well for such a huge player. Playing sound defense tonight, as well. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Logan Brown Summary Much improved in his quickness and confidence, and he looks like he could be ready to play in the NHL. He skates incredibly well for his size, with balance and smooth movements. Good instincts and hustle, too. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Max Reinhart Note Compact® stride, good speed and balance Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Max Reinhart Note Good work in a corner scrum, holds off the opponent until he gets the puck free from feet, then makes a sharp pass to a teammate for a chance. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Max Reinhart Summary Can skate the NHL game, can hustle the NHL game, but I'm not convinced he can think the NHL game. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Kasperi Kapanen Note Puck handling is solid at speed and he makes difficult cuts look easy while maintaining possession Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Kasperi Kapanen Note Darts in and out of the middle, but I would like to see him really dig in every now and then and claim his position on the ice. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Logan Stanley Summary Still a lot of doubt about whether or not he has the feet to be an NHL defender. Size and physicality to do the job, but it is still unclear if he has the overall hockey iq to make up for his poor footwork Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Pius Suter Note Getting PK time, smooth and agile skater, but tentative in this game. He's active, though, and engaged. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Pius Suter Note Like his quickness and acceleration Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Pius Suter Summary Suter has a lot of tools including excellent acceleration, agility, and hockey iq, but he looks like a player better suited to the bigger European ice than the tighter confines of North American rinks. Willing to take a bump, but doesn't seem eager to get into the fray. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Thomas Chabot Note Aggressive pinch to get to a loose puck, good quick burst, decisive and most importantly, it was the right choice Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Thomas Chabot Note Nice rush up ice, maneuvers in deep Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Thomas Chabot Note Patient with the puck in traffic, sees the whole ice really well, and no apprehension in his game at all Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Thomas Chabot Summary Chabot is blossoming into an absolute stud defender, and looks like a future top-pair perineal all-star Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Timothy Liljegren Note Fun to watch him skate, and his gambling passes pay off, they are beauties. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note On defense it's constant pursuit for him, often at the expense of positioning, but his compete level is off the charts. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Like his game a lot: size, effort, physicality. Not as skillful as his older brother, maybe, but his intensity is immeasurable. Not a face-puncher, just a dominant force. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cale Makar Note Looks even faster that in the spring, if that's possible Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cale Makar Note Holds off an eager Gettinger by using body position. Excellent puck protection Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cale Makar Note Loses the puck in his skates and Tufte takes it away. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cody Glass Note Just a good hockey player Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cody Glass Note Worst-case scenario for Glass is that he becomes a bottom-six faceoff specialist who plays a decade in the NHL. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Jake Bean Note Active stick, but still needs to close up gaps a bit more quickly and more decisively Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Jake Bean Note Good defense against a charging Wahlstrom, turns him to the outside then pokes the puck away. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Jake Bean Note Skilled skater does the little things incredibly well Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Jake Bean Note Breaks his stick attempting a slap shot, then as the puck floats to an opposing forward, hurries back, gets position, bodies up on the puck carrier and takes him out of the play. Patient and smart, that. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Jake Bean Note Great poke check on the PK Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Logan Cockerill Note Plays at full speed every shift Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Logan Stanley Note Can't handle Dhooge's quickness. Still looks lumbersome. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Logan Stanley Note Lack of mobility allows Gettinger to get to a loose puck and sneak a shot down the goal line and into the net. You can't allow that in the NHL. Or the AHL for that matter. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Mikey Anderson Note Good, deep knee bend, but could improve his extensions Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Mikey Anderson Note Seems like his reach is 30 feet long, his active stick is really effective Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017

Mikey Anderson Note Excellent awareness in all three zones Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Mikey Anderson Summary Raw player who has a nice skillset for an NHL defenseman, but he needs a good couple of years to polish up his overall game. He shows smarts, good quickness, and a lot of positional awareness. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Oliver Wahlstrom Note Wahlstrom, as a 2018, will be interesting to watch this year. Fast, exuberant, raw. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note So hard to handle down low on the goal line, active, strong, heavy Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017

Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Liking his quickness in this game. He's looking more like he did in his draft year, and seems to have shrugged off some of the post-draft-year lethargy. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Sean Dhooge Note Just completely gifted as a player--he goes hard every shift, fights through checks and traffic, superb vision and puck skills. Great hockey player whose size is truly the only seriously limiting factor Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Sean Dhooge Summary More fun to watch play than almost anyone in the game, but he has such a huge hill to climb at his size. I've said it before, but if you're not a fan of Dhooge, you're not a fan of hockey. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017

Jacob Moverare Note Doesn't look totally comfortable skating the puck up ice, but he is a decent puck handler Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Jesper Sellegren Note Gives Brady Tkachuk too much space at the crease, and Tkachuk makes him pay by deflecting a point-shot attempt into the net for a powerplay goal. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Lias Andersson Note Winning a lot of offensive zone faceoffs Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Lias Andersson Note Such a smart, possession-based player. So calm with the puck, knows how to protect it and willing to wait as long as it takes for the right play to open up. Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
Lias Andersson Note Saved a wraparound attempt from Tkachuk after Sweden's netminder was caught out of position Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017
