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

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

Player Name Note Type Note Writer Game Watched Viewing Method Game Date
Alexander Mirzabalayev Note Truly lacks acceleration, like he's trying to skate in mud. Once he's going, he's okay, with nice edges in gliding, average speed. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Alexander Mirzabalayev Note Breaking out, shovels a pass but nearly falls over trying to avoid a hit. Would rather have seem him bear down just a bit more and take the hit to make a cleaner pass. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Alexander Mirzabalayev Note Tries to lift a short saucer pass to the slot but leads his man too much and the puck goes harmlessly into the corner. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Alexandre Doucet Note A couple of sluggish steps, looks half-hearted in the defensive zone as he reaches out for pucks instead of moving his feet. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Alexandre Doucet Note Lacks agility and the ability to dig into turns or cut laterally. All of his turns are long and slow. Edgework needs a lot of development. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Alexandre Doucet Note Puck watching in the neutral zone and Fillion shakes him cleanly. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Alexandre Doucet Note Patient with the puck, drifting toward the net, holding, trying to get the defender to committ. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Goes after a puck in the deep offensive zone, lifts the defender's stick and gains control. Then, from below the goal line, tosses the puck into the goalie's feet, off a skate and in. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Playing low on the right-side circle on the powerplay, and the low man finds him for a hard one-timer that took a great save to keep out of the net. Cormier got everything on that. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Same shift, but out a little higher near the top of the right circle, rips a slapshot about six inches off of the ice, hard on net. Forward in front tried to deflect but missed the puck. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Buzzing on the powerplay, moving with and without the puck. Takes one behind the net and saucers the puck to the circle, but Aleksei Sergeev mistimes it and the puck skips past his stick. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Quality work at the top of the penalty kill box. Active, pestering the puck, closing lanes. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Carries the puck with good speed and enters the zone cleanly on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Finishes a tremendous feed from Malatesta. Pots it into the open net one-timed. Great hustle to be there and be ready on the fly. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Note Drives to the net without the puck yet again, this time drawing a tripping penalty. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Cole Cormier Summary Smaller forward with skill and skating ability, but not spectacular at any one thing. A well-rounded player who can help his team in all zones. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Darien Kielb Note He's slow trying to chase down another shorthanded breakaway. He just can't keep up at all, despite the obviously intense amount of effort he's putting into it. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Darien Kielb Note Playing the point on the powerplay. Moves the puck okay enough, but nothing looks sharp about his game, and his inability to get back fast enough to prevent shorthanded chances makes him a liability back there. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Darien Kielb Note This time, instead of giving up yet another clean shorthanded breakaway, he actually just dove and tackled the charging forward before he could get to the puck. Yikes. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Edouard Cournoyer Note Intercepts at his crease and hands off and joins the breakout, but the forward trying to skate out of the zone heads into traffic, and Courneyer wisely backed off into a more cautious defensive position, and was in the right spot when the puck was indeed turned over. Smart read. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Edouard Cournoyer Note Physical on the boards, hard work to win the puck, then accelerates after passing to the blue line and starting a rush. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Edouard Cournoyer Note Tries to settle a puck with his foot, but can't quite get control and Mirzabalayev, takes it away from him. But Cournoyer works to get back and take away the slot option. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Edouard Cournoyer Note Not great speed, but mobile enough in small areas to allow him to gain position in the defensive zone. He's a pass first defender, but he'll try to push up ice when he can. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Edouard Cournoyer Note Takes a while to get his wrist shot away because he leans so heavily into his stick, but once its away, the pucks flies off his stick with good power. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jacob Melanson Note Goes to the net without the puck, almost pokes the puck in during a goal-mouth scramble, then circles back and levels the puckcarrier trying to skate clear of the zone. It was a hard hit called for a boarding, but I didn't think that was a good call. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jacob Melanson Note takes a solid hit and gets up slowly. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jacob Melanson Note Good work to cover his net front after the Center extended coverage out near the blue line. Smart read in his own zone, responsible play. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jacob Melanson Note Battling at the goal crease, scrapping for a loose puck. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jacob Melanson Note He's done a good job absorbing hits without showing much ill effect. He bounces back quickly. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Playing top circle right side, pucks comes to him from the opposite corner faceoff and he lets a one-timer go, simple glove save as the goalie was well-positioned. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Lacks agility and the ability to dig into turns or cut laterally. All of his turns are long and slow. Edgework needs a lot of development. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Okay start from a standstill, but he's not getting a huge burst. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Works on the puck carrier deep in the right corner, and as the opponent tries to spin away and turn up ice, Malatesta picks his pocket and turns for a backhand attempt on goal. Not a lot on it, but it was hard to determine if that was a shot or an attempt to pass to his teammate cutting to the front of the net. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Pushes a bouncing puck forward, races the defender to it, and as the puck pings off the half-boards, Malatesta one-times a fast-release snap shot on net. He can get a shot away from anywhere under any condition. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Improved leg strength will help his skating, both in short and open spaces. He's got speed and is a smooth skater, and his mechanics look good, just not fully matured yet. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note He'll take up a spot in front of the net on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Lateral/backward crossovers get him from the top of the circle to the slot in a hurry. Nice skating. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Throws a hit in the corner while on the powerplay. Solid jolt against a much bigger defenseman. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Has missed on a few passes. He is seeing the play, just not quite connecting. A little behind, and little in front. Needs to iron that out. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Great effort from near the red line to chase a puck that was racing into the offensive zone. He again beat a defender to the puck, and as soon as his reached it (near the goal line) he swept the puck back to Cormier coming down the right wing, who finishes. Malatesta caught up to the puck and didn't bother trying to settle it, just passed it behind and to his right at full speed. Excellent play. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Shows good hands in tight to snap at a goal mouth puck and almost gets it below the goaltender's pads. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Doesn’t cheat the game to get up ice. He's unselfish about protecting his zone. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Tries to tuck a back pass to Cormier off of the cycle, but misses him by three feet. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note He's got such a feel for the game. He just jumped to a spot where the puck squeaked out and he tucks it backhand into the open net. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Note Hands and a super-high scoring drive. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
James Malatesta Summary Any interesting scoring forward prospect who seems to want to get the puck in the net on every shift, and wants more when he gets one. His shot is much more accurate than his passing, which he will absolutely need to improve upon. He plays a smart, highly attentive game, and his hockey sense is great. I liked his willingness to get physical and go to the difficult areas despite being just 16 years old and 5'9. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jeremie Biakabutuka Note Speed is average. Just doesn't seem to push or power his stride at all. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jeremie Biakabutuka Note Backwards skating looks labored and lacks agility or quickness. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jeremie Biakabutuka Note Gets beaten completely by Sergeyev who isn't particularly fast or crafty, but one simple fake and cut inside and Biakabutuka was turned inside out. He was clearly playing the puck and not the man. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jeremie Biakabutuka Note Blue line draw comes to him, a little pressure and he awkwardly retreats behind his own net. Additional offside pressure joins and he looks panicked and gives the puck away. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Jeremie Biakabutuka Note Breakout, takes the puck at the blue line and skates it to the redline, then dumps it in so hard that it rims all the way around and allows Quebec to make an easy breakout of their own. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Small player, decent manueverability but his top speed looks only above average. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Killing penalties, and twice turned the wrong way, showing his back to the puck. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Not a fan of his straight-line speed. He moves okay with the puck, but he's only an above average skater from what I've seen so far. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note On the powerplay in the slot, tries to deflect a shot but gets too much of it and knocks it down in front of him. He immediately grabbed the puck, spun and fired it over the goaltender's blocker for a goal. Caught the goalie by surprise shooting off of the spin. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Killing a penalty, picks off a bobbling puck at his blue line and creates a clean breakaway. Gains a stride on Mavrick Gauthier, fakes, goes backhand-forehand as he hits the brakes, and slips the puck past the flailing netminder. That was a good move to fool the goaltender completely. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Good on his edges at speed, which helps him slide in and out of spaces. His first couple of steps are just okay, and his top speed is good, but its in between where he looks best on his skates. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Good check into the boards rubs out the puck carrier. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Note Five-on-three powerplay, and he's low on the left side of the net. Alll of the danger is starting on his stick. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Justin Robidas Summary A chippy, smaller forward that is effective in all three zones. He plays hard, competes hard, and has good hands and feet. He's just 5'7 now, but his father Stephane played at 5'11, 190 and put in 900+ NHL games. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Mavrick Gauthier Note Seems like he takes it personally when opponents try to take up residence at the top of the crease. Physical, choppy, intent on clearing that space. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
William Provost Note Stays almost straight upright during his first several steps, and only gets low after several strides. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
William Provost Note Takes a shot off of the faceoff. A ton of stick flex, but hit the goaltender in the chest. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
William Provost Note On the very next faceoff, tries the exact same shot from the faceoff, but the defender reads it and just takes the puck off of his stick and skates away. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
William Provost Note In a puck battle behind his own net, loses the battle and the puck, but his teammate throws a hit and creates a turnover. Provost then takes a couple of slow steps up ice while his team breaks out. No urgency at all. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Xavier Fillion Note Gets a wrist shot away with not much power behind it. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Xavier Fillion Note Tosses a mostly blind pass to the crease that looked like he was hoping to find someone there. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Xavier Fillion Note Simple fake leaves Doucet grasping for straws. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Xavier Fillion Note Follows Melanson's drive to the net, and when Melanson looses the handle in traffic, Fillion picks up the loose puck and snaps it past the goaltender to tie the game with just under four minutes left. Brian Fogarty Val-D'Or vs Quebec Video (With Replay) 1/10/2020
Bastian Guggenheim Note Looks lean, but he uses his body well and just made a nice hit in the corner. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Bastian Guggenheim Note Penalty kill duties, but he had drifted out a little too high and Voronkov gets a clean look from the crease for a goal. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Bastian Guggenheim Note Positions himself well, rides a player away from the crease/far post. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Bastian Guggenheim Note Gets called for a trip on Voronkov, but that was a clear dive/fall from the big Russian. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Ivan Morozov Note Gerts a loose puck and drives to the net, but a Swiss defender cuts across the crease and gets a stick out to disuade the shot. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Ivan Morozov Note Skating is good, his straightline speed looks above averagee, but not excellent. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Ivan Morozov Note Setting up in the slot on the powerplay. He looks comfortable taking the puck into high-traffic areas. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Ivan Morozov Note Fast turn with the puck, passes, shoves his way back to the front of the net. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Ivan Morozov Note Jumps to get a loose puck, then digs a heel and edges left. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Ivan Morozov Summary Not the most creative forward, but unafraid. He's a north/south player who will get to the greasy, hard-fought spots on the ice and be effective when he's there. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Maxim Sorkin Note Tries the power turn to the net, but can't beat the defender to get a clean look. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Simon Knak Note Bad pass off the boards in his own end. It should have been a pressure-relieving clearance pass, but instead his just pushed it towards the blue line and gave up a two-on-one against. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Simon Knak Note Blocks a shot. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Simon Knak Note Can tighten up his mechanics a bit. They are okay, but can be better. Still fairly fast, though. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Simon Knak Note Trailing the rush, gets a one-timer opportunity that he rifles on net, saved. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Simon Knak Note Big circles around the slot as a defending technique on that shift. Down 3-1 in the third, I can see why he wants to get up ice, but he needs to be more settled there. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Simon Knak Note Needs more intensity in his game. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Simon Knak Summary Looks thinner than he's listed at 6'1, 190 and perhaps that is due in part to his minimally physical game. There a good parts of his game--he has good speed and skating abilities, handles the puck well, etc--but his overall play does lack intensity and there was not a lot of offense on display in this game, albeit against a stingy Russian defense. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note Floating a bit in his own zone looking for a place to defend instead of being settled in position. Chasing the puck a bit. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note He's quick on his feet, and uses that on the penalty kill. He looked better on the pk than his earlier defensive shift. Sound positioning. Active but controlled. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note Puck on his stick on the powerplay, recognizes that he has plenty of room, walks the puck in from the blue line, wrist shot wide. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note Confident and capable with the puck. He's havinga hard time cracking the Russian defense, but he's trying hard. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note Top speed is good, but his acceleration, edges and agility are excellent. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note Does lots of little things well, and he battles hard. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note Wouldn't be surprised if he finishes this game with 25+ minutes of ice time. [Ed Note: Nussbaumer was officially listed as having 24:28 of ice time in the game]. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Valentin Nussbaumer Note His competitiveness pegs the needle. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Yegor Sokolov Note Huge body, not an overly coordinated skater. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Yegor Sokolov Note In a straight line, his strides are short. He gets his feet back quickly, but there's no extendeed push at all. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Yegor Sokolov Summary Did not show much in the game other than his massive frame (6'4, 240). His skating is below average both in speed and mobility, he shows little to no offensive creativity beyond getting his body to the front of the net, and defensively he was just average. Brian Fogarty Switzerland vs Russian (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 1/2/2020
Alexander Holtz Note Puck in his own end, and as the defenseman is readying to exit, Holtz is moving laterally in protect against a Slovakian forechecker charging in, then he accelerates and activates as the puck does. Smart play. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Alexander Holtz Note Everything looks effortless for him: skating, handling. Never out of control. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Alexander Holtz Note Has such a big wrist shot, he can score from the boards with that thing. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Alexander Holtz Note Always has his stick on the ice, ready to receive a pass, providing easy targets for his teammate with the puck. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019

Alexander Holtz Note His shot is lethal. Another wrist shot, this one from the top of the circle, just whipped it top corner far side. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Jonatan Berggren Note Working on the second powerplay unit, takes up a command and control spot below the goal line and is running the play from there. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Marko Stacha Note Unexpected poke check breaks up a pass. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Marko Stacha Note Gives Hoglander a bump and easily clears him from the front of the net. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Martin Fasko-Rudas Note Attentive to defense when the puck is inhis area. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Martin Fasko-Rudas Note Albin Eriksson gets a breakaway and Fasko-Rudas gains about a half-step on him while chasing him down. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Nils Hoglander Note Good vision to find Fagemo in the slot, and a better pass to give him a chance to convert. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Nils Hoglander Note First shift on the game, and he's already beavertailed his stick twice. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Nils Hoglander Note Fission quick, but he's easily knocked around if there's any contact. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Nils Hoglander Note Down beside the net on the powerplay, biding his time. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Nils Hoglander Note His choices with the puck and unhesitating. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Nils Hoglander Note He's a loaded spring just waiting for the puck to trigger him. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Nils Hoglander Note Tries a no-look pass backwards between his legs while facing the half-boards, but it doesn't connect and is cleared. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Nils Hoglander Note Tries a backhand shovel pass and puts it into the skates. The king of high-risk plays. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Samuel Knazko Note At even strength, he's paying attention and quick to get back when Sweden gets puck control. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Samuel Knazko Note Good speed, probably very good. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Samuel Knazko Note On the ice a lot. He's getting a ton of minutes. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/31/2019
Aatu Raty Note Killing penalties despite being the team's youngest player. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Aatu Raty Note Killing a penalty, gets up ice with the puck, mishandles, stays on it, mishandles, stays on it and then he has a chance on goal. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019
Aatu Raty Note Good interception on the penalty kill. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Khazakstan (WJC 2020) Video (With Replay) 12/29/2019

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

Cole Perfetti Note Tremendous effort on the backcheck, skating all the way back from the offensive goal line. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Danil Savunov Note Also incredibly fast. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019

Jamie Drysdale Note Second PK unit. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Jamie Drysdale Note Telegraphed a D to D pass that Amirov anticipates and intercepts Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019

Vasili Podkolzin Note Can generate so much speed and power through the neutral zone with the puck, and can still fake and deke around defenders. He's a beast one-on-one with almost anybody. Brian Fogarty OHL vs Russia (Cananda-Russia Series 2019) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Picks up a puck, gains speed through the neutral zone, tries to work through three opponents as he enters the offensive zone and he loses the puck into the side boards. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Gets a gift puck all alone in the slot, closes, handles and shoots, gets his own rebound on the move, cuts behind the net and scores on the wraparound. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Changes gears when he needs to, has good control of his skating speed and angles. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Perfetti's hands are all over his stick, choking up, reaching out. Soft, fluid hands that allows him handle and move the puck in tight spaces. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note On the powerplay, slowly stickhandling though the neutral zone and almost lulls the defenders to sleep. Sharp pass at the blue line and suddenly he's behind the forwards and has the puck back. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Snappy release using the defender as a screen, and nearly beats the netminder. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note He can command the game when the puck is on his stick. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Perfetti is constantly in and out of traffic without the puck. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Seems to feel zero pressure when he has the puck, despite the number of opponents bearing down on him. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Cole Perfetti Summary Perfetti is a player who is noticeable on practically every shift. His skating is so smooth and lively, and he plays a smart game in all three zones, but he sparkles when he has the puck, and his team makes sure that the play is always going through him somehow. He is an excellent puck handler who draws opponents to him and makes the smart play, never forcing either a shot or a pass. If he doesn't have a clear option, he skate his way into one. Even without the puck, he is looking for opportunities. A top prospect, no question. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019

Damien Giroux Note In a good shooting spot, but when he gets the puck, he misses wide. He needed to hit the net there, because he had a lot of rebound help in front. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Damien Giroux The fifth-round pick of the Minnesota Wild from the 2018 draft is on the small side at 5'10, 185, but he's not afraid to mix it up a bit and get his body into the game. He's a two-year captain for the Spirit, and its easy to see why in the way he plays. He's always working hard, battling for puck possession. He is not a prolific scorer, however, despite his decent stick skills. He missed the net too many times and some of his passes were off target. Skating is above average. At this point, it's hard to call him a projectable NHLer, but he could still make a nice professional career for himself in the AHL with a chance at the NHL if he can push hard on the development curve.

Davis Codd Note Fast, good technique and stride power. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Davis Codd Note Small and quick, hardworking player at both ends. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Davis Codd Note Might be the fastest skater in this game. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Davis Codd Note Drives the net on the left side, right-handed shot shows backhand, forehand, backhand, top shelf but the netminder gets a shoulder on it and pushes it just over the bar. Fast, fast hands there. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Davis Codd Summary Barely sixteen years old (born August 2003), Codd is a fast, dynamic skater who brings energy and a good amount of puck skills to the ice. He's listed at 5'9, 163 pounds, with some room to grow and polish his skills. His hard work and high level of competitiveness will help him going forward.

Dylan Robinson Note Big, stunner hit that separates puck from carrier. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Dylan Robinson Note Takes the hit to make sure he gets the puck to the right player. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Dylan Robinson Note Late in the period, in the offensive zone, keeping alert at the left point, and as the puck gets closer to the net, he gets closer himself. Puck hops to the slot, he jumps up, swivels his hips to shield the puck from a Saginaw player, and with that extra second is able to backhand the puck on net. Then he's immediately back out to his post at the blue line, checking the clock. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Dylan Robinson Note Pinches into the corner, helps his team keep possession, then backs out to this spot again. As he does that, he waves his Center back towards the play down low. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Dylan Robinson Note Good, simple zone clearance. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Dylan Robinson Summary Robinson a steady, heady defender who plays a shrewd positional game in his own end. Up ice, he stays responsible, but looks willing to pinch in and get involved in the offense if it doesn't involve too much risk. This is his first full-time OHL season even though he is a 2020 draft-eligible player. Despite his relative inexperience, he plays a lot of minutes on the blue line, with good hockey iq and a potential NHL career in the future. It will be interesting to see how his draft stock goes. He has the look now of a player who could be a late round pick or a player who gets passed by this season, but really stands out next year. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Smooth-looking backward skating, but crossing over a bit more when c-cuts would be better there. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Holds his position, doesn't buy the Foudy fake, and good physical play knocks Foudy off the puck. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Hard pass from behind his his own net out to the half boards starts the breakout. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Got a puck in his corner, faked left then shoveled the puck to the right and into a crowd. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Turns look a bit slow. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Skates a puck through center ice, enters the zone against everyone, fires a wrist shot low that the goalie blocks into the corner. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Killing penalties, bottles the puck into the corner and eats seconds off of the clock. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Decent first couple of steps from a standstill, when he needs it. But, he is standing still a bit too much. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Windsor coming out of their zone, and Solovyov gets caught lingering in the neutral zone while an attacking player skips by him and enters the zone cleanly, while Solovyov was left groping with his sitck. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Leading a slowish, sort of plodding rush that gets stifled. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Another instance where he was standing and watching instead of hustling back from the boards to his net. What's he doing out there? Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note In full stride one-time slapshot that howled to the net. Goalie was ready but that was a blast. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Looks much more comfortable at the point when his team has good puck control. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Left-handed shot playing the left point. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Charges to the net, and the puck comes to him, but under duress he chips it over the net. Aggressive play, though. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Tries to leave his defensive zone when full possession was not yet theirs, and he left his D partner alone with the puck and three forechecking opponents. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Definitely not hesitant to shoot. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Another monster one-time slapper. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Note Horrible giveaway at the offensive blue line, and the penalty killer gets a clear breakaway for a goal. Not only was the turnover bad, the player breaking away is not fast, but Solovyov couldn't catch up to stop the attempt. The Saginaw goalie was shooting eye daggers at Solovyov after the goal. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ilya Solovyov Summary Good size at 6'2, 187. Has a huge slap shot with very good timing on one-timers, even on the move. But that's about the limit of his offensive abilities. Decent passer. Below average foot speed, stands around a lot, really bad in his own zone. Just doesn't get involved in most defensive action, though he will use his body at times. Just not a lot of visible hockey smarts in general. I love his shot, but don't really like any of the rest of his game.  Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note Tries to deke around a defender at the blue line who just bodies up and dumps him. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note Mechanics look good. He gets a lot of speed. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note Good skater with the puck, highly manueverable. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note He looks better skating in traffic than straight line. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note Turns a pass to the boards, keeps going for the other end of the give-and-go and gets a good look on net. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note That was a nice looks and pass through traffic to give the far side wing a chance on net. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Note Might not have the sheer top-end speed of his older brother Liam, but he is an excellent skater just the same. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jean-Luc Foudy Summary Foudy was the most visible player on the ice for the Spitfires, driving play into the offensive zone, constantly on the attack, and doing his part in his own end. His skating in the zone forces the defenders to keep an eye on him at all times, and his passing and puckhandling are threat enough to punish them if they don't. Not truly electrifying, and not always a threat to score, but he's at a point per game after 29 this season. His mother was a silver-medalist Olympic sprinter, an interesting side note. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Big body with powerful skating that gives him sneaky-good straight-line speed. Agility and balance look okay. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Same shift, theres a rush up ice, and he was passing people. At 6'5 and 207 pounds, the 18-year-old forward is an excellent up-ice skater. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Skating and size, and his passing is okay, but he's floating and watching, not really getting into the action. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Gets a lucky puck with the goalie out of position behind the net and scores easily, even from a bad angle near the boards. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Carries the puck, power move on his backhand to get around the defender, then tries to go top shelf but misses high. Best offensive move I have seen from him so far in the game. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Again showing speed to beat out an icing. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Wrist shot takes a while to load and unleash. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Note Gets called for interference on something that could have been ugly as the player went awkwardly into the boards. I want to call that a bad penalty to take, but the opposing player stepped right in front of McDonald. Had he not crashed into the boards there likely wouldn't have been a call. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kyle McDonald Summary McDonald is a 2020-eligible player who is 6'5, 187 pounds who is suprising fast with long, powerful strides that helps reach an excellent top speed. He shows very good mobility and balance. He is not as physical as you’d expect at his size, and his offensive game is subpar and he doesn't get into the meat of the battle at all. He'll need to up his work rate and get more involved in generating offense. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yegor Afanasyev Note Skating is above average but not by a lot. It limits his effectiveness trying to get through the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yegor Afanasyev Note Another rush, and he's a step or two off the pace. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yegor Afanasyev Note Going hard, but can't get ahead of Solovyov, who is not a speedy player. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yegor Afanasyev Note Powerplay, up near the top of the right circle, he looks good there because he doesn’t have to move as much or create his own space. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yegor Afanasyev Note Misses the net completely with a mid-range wrist shot. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yegor Afanasyev Summary A big, power-type player at 6'4, 201, but he lacks the spark that could help propel him forward. His skating is okay, but he's a step slow against good OHL skaters, and he'll need to up his intensity and mobility to get a good crack at the NHL. Brian Fogarty Windsor vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Nils Lundqvist Note Mechanics are nearly flawless. Compact, long push, quick reset. Makes him remarkably fast. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Nils Lundqvist Note Skates the puck to the blue line, passes into the neutral zone, then races deep into the offensive zone. Suddenly he's behind the net drawing defenders to him before moving the puck. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Nils Lundqvist Note Lundkvist with an awesome pass in tight to find Gunler for the goal. Because it happened on the far side of the goal, I at first thought Lundkvist had shot the puck and Gunler got the rebound, but replays showed that Lundkvist actually pulled the puck to his backhand and made the five-foot pass to Gunler. Hands and vision on top of the speed he was bringing to the net. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Nils Lundqvist Note Oh my, is he fast. Just rockets up the ice. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Nils Lundqvist Note His release is quick. He gets the puck away with little stick movement at all. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Nils Lundqvist Summary Already a good to great skater when he was drafted in 2018, his skating speed and agility has seemingly improved to a superb level. He has also further developed his offensive skills and shot. Lundkvist is quickly becoming a first-rate defensive project for the Rangers. His size at 5'11, 174, is a little on the small side but should have zero effect on his ability to make his way to the NHL. I would not be surprised to see him transfer to North America in the near, near future. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Working towards to puck, side-steps a defender, gets the pass, feeds Lundkvist low. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Gets to the slot, and Lundkvist finds him with an amazing and sneaky backhand pass, which Gunler darts into the goal with one touch. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Gliding behind the net, watching the play on the boards. Puck kicks out, Gunler leans hard on his left skate, then with a great push and just two steps he's in the slot. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Burst is outstanding, speed is very good, edgework and agility are near excellent. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Stickhandles around the defender, then wrists a hard shot low to the far post that just misses wide. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Comes off the bench with speed and manages to keep a loose puck from exiting the offensive zone. His momentum carries him to the circle, but he turns back to buy a second or two then saucers one to the weak side right onto Lundkvist's stick. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Like his effort on the backcheck. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note Sees that he has a bit of time while the puck is locked up on the boards, so he clears a broken stick from his high-slot area that had been on the ice for a few shifts. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Note He plays a style of game that will easily translate to smaller ice. He skates well, but is a north/south player who goes to the middle without hesitation. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Noel Gunler Summary Gunler's energy, awareness and alert play coupled with his skills and skating are a tantalizing package. He has size at 6'2 and 174 pounds, and he plays fast all the time. Truly an excellent prospect for the 2020 draft. He looks like a top ten pick to me, even with this crowded forward crop. Brian Fogarty Lulea vs Lausanne (Champions Hockey League) Video (With Replay) 12/10/2019
Adam Beckman Note Going hard back to the bench after his shift. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Top power play unit, low in the strong-side corner. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Edges are good, hands are steady and stick is ready. Works well to keep his body oriented to the play. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note As his team is breaking the puck out of the defensive zone, he heads into the neutral zone, then opens his hips and makes himself available for the breakout pass. Good awareness and skating. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Uses his heel to change pass and angle of forechecking attack. Nice footwork there. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Moving to the right, pass comes across his body and he's able to lean hard on his left foot edge and get a good, off-balance wrist shot on net. He knows how to shoot the puck. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Able to collect tough passes well, and then move the puck with a second touch. He's a step ahead of the play. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Another off-balance shot on net, this time on a one-timer from just inside the blue line. Before the puck was played out to him, he had circled back to get into a better lane and shooting space, and his shot was a dangerous one. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note One thing I'm seeing is he needs to up his physical play a bit. He looks okay in tough spots, but along the walls he's poking and reaching in instead of engaging the body. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note On the blue line, he flicks his wrists and puts a long shot on net. He's got a deceptively quick release. That one might not have had a lot of juice, but it still created havoc at the net. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Just had to make a choice on a puck that was skittering into the zone while he was leaning into the neutral zone. He could easily have chased, but chose the smarter option to regather and not overextend. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Also out on the penalty kill late in the first. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Starting from one blue line, Jarvis and Beckman are in footrace, Jarvis with the puck. By the redline, Jarvis has a stride, though he had a bit more run to start with and Beckman had a bit of traffic. At the next blue line, Jarvis has to slide right to evade a defender, and Beckman is about even again. I'd give the edge to Jarvis, but Beckman was close. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Collects a loose puck at the red line, fights through a stick check, powers into the zone, then drops to the trailer. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note End of a long shift, still working hard in the defensive zone, then makes a bee-line fo the bench but the puck pops out in front of him. He attacks into the offensive zone, then when the play fizzles, he still goes hard to the bench. I love that effort. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note He's the second man in on a 3-on-2, but the winger fires a pass into his skates. He can't gather, but he keeps working hard to make something happen. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note He pays attention to his defensive role, and uses good acceleration to break up plays. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Down 3-1, he's on another 3-on-2 rush, this time trailing the play. There's a netfront scramble, the puck ends up in the net, and Beckman is hugging the goal scorer like they just won the championship. He's an enthusiastic winner, this kid. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note He's in great shape. He has played a ton of high energy minutes, and hasn't slowed a step. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Does a lot of spinning when he doesn't have the puck. It's wasted movement that will need to be excised from his game. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Note Another end-of-shift opportunity, he digs deep, gets a zone entry, and heads to the bench. Discipline and hard work. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Adam Beckman Summary Beckman is a well-rounded player with a scorer's touch and feel around the offensive zone. He skates well, works hard in all three zones, and plays an attentive and aware game. He lacks physicallity but goes to high-traffic areas when he needs to. Good passer, good vision, though neither are particularly top end. He played a lot of minutes in all situations, and when he was on the ice, the puck typically ended up in the offensive zone. He could be a top-six winger at the NHL level if he continues to develop. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Note Hardworking forechecking shift, very active trying to get the puck back for his team. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Note Wide stride with short pushes. He should get deeper and push into longer strides, but he still has decent pace. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Note He's the center, but on this sequence he's trying to leave the zone before the puck. When the inevitable turnover happens, he's slow to get back on defense. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Note I like his movement overall, but he's a step or two slow skating north/south. On his next sequence, he showed that by having to pass the puck awkwardly instead of outskating the back pressure. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Note Tries to power around Tyson Kozak, but he didn't have the wheels to do it. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Note Yeah, he needs to get two steps faster. I hope he can, because I like him otherwise. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bear Hughes Summary An undrafted 2019 with good size at 6'1 but he's still on the thinner side at 165 pounds. Could use more leg strength and improvement on his stride. Good at faceoffs, but the coach seems to not trust his defensive play too much because he wasn't asked to be a core center defender low in his zone. My feeling after this game is that he could be an effective AHL-level pro, but needs to get faster. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Bobby Russell Note Not watching him, but he just made an excellent 180 with the puck that made me go, "ooooh." Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cross Hanas Note Starts the breakout, heads to the front of the net, then jabs the puck up and into the net off the Fromm-Delorme feed. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cross Hanas Note Slotside of the circle on the offensive zone faceoff. Puck goes the other way into the corner, and Hanas turns towards the blue after bumping into the defender, then turns around again. Turning his back to the play is not good, but he may have been off balance and forced to do that. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cross Hanas Note Poor, blind backhand pass off his halfboards easily picked off. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cross Hanas Note Throws a nice hip check behind the offensive net. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cross Hanas Note Ridiculous video game deke, toe drag backhand top cheese. That was sick. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cross Hanas Summary Playing on the same line as Fromm-Delorme, but didn't look quite as effective. Willing to get physical, above average to good speed. Didn't show off his hands until that nasty dangle off the feed from Fromm-Delorme that was easily the highlight of his game. I'd like to see if he can do more of that, particularly in tighter confines. Looked okay to me, but not a high-end prospect for the 2020 draft at this point. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Filip Kral Note Kral, with good size and two-way play, is a weapon, even though he's not fast or dazzling. Just seems to get the job done somehow. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Filip Kral Note Again, Kral looks clunky, but he makes plays with the puck. I'm skeptical of his NHL future, but he has success on the ice. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note So tall at 6'5, 207 pounds, but he is a fluid, fast skater with agility as well. Nasty combo. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Throws a hit along the boards, using his size as a factor for physical play. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Top power play unit, taking up a net-front position. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Accelerates toward the net and wrists a shot low that handcuffed the goaltender. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Highly active at the crease on the power play. He's so big and well balanced that defenders can't dislodge him and the goalie has hard time getting sight lines. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Gets a wide, wide stance for faceoffs, and he gets so much leverage on the draw. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Killing penalties, but loses the faceoff in the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Again being called upon to kill penalties, and again he's just sort of passive in the slot. This looks more like a coaching preference rather than his play. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note At times, he looks like a kid trying to figure out how to make his body work in unison with all its parts. Once he does, he could be a real force to be reckoned with. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Needs to up his physical play a bit more. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note On the boards in the corner, the defender hooks him and he topples over. Weird play, but I'd like him to keep his feet there. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Strides are so long, he can cover half the rink in what seems like three steps. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Note Overskates the far post and is out of position, but the puck on the far boards goes the other way, so no damage. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Finley Summary One of the youngest members of the 2020 draft class (9/2 birthdate), Finley might also be the biggest at 6'5, 207. He is a suprisingly good skater, with long, powerful strides and good edges and agility. He is strong on the puck and has a physical element though he needs to improve on that portion of his game. He was heavily relied on to kill penalties, take faceoffs in all zones, and get to the crease on the powerplay. He showed good hands and a facility for battling for pucks at the crease. He's a player who will improve over time if he keeps working hard. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Obrien Note Taking the faceoff, but not playing the typical centerman defensive role down low. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jack Obrien Note At the offensive blue line with the puck, instead of getting over the line, he tries to turn back, loses the puck, and the rush goes the other way. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Raegan Wiles Note Right point, half-hearted looking shot doesn't get through the traffic. Puck comes out. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Raegan Wiles Note Tries to cut off the forward on the boards, but doesn't quite make the angle. Gets a piece, but the forward gets past him. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Raegan Wiles Note Just haven't seen him on the ice much through two periods. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Reece Newkirk Note He's a waterbug with the puck, no doubt. Skating is crazy good. And his shot release is super fast. Nice wrist shot. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Reece Newkirk Note Tries a lacrosse move but Ty Smith buries him on the attempt. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note Reaching a bit on defense, but then closes and gets more physically engaged. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note Good feed to the slot, had to reach around the defender, but flicks a pass to Hanas for the chance. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note Moving through the offensive zone with intent when he doesn't have the puck. He's an active participant, not a passive observer. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note First step is lively. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note In a disintegrating game with a lot of good skaters, he's still showing speed and nerve and getting pucks into dangerous spots. Now, he just needs to finish. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note What a wonderful look! Take a pass off the baords, splits two defenders, then spins no scope and hits Hanas who dangles and buries it. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note I'd call his straightline speed at about 55ish on a 20-80 scale. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note He goes hard on the forecheck. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Note I like his balance. He'll get his skates out wide to hold position and maintain strength on his feet and on the puck. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Robbie Fromm-Delorme Summary Fromm-Delorme is quicker than he is fast, and looks like a better skater in tight spaces than in straightline open ice, but he's okay there, as well. His hockey sense is quite good, he has a high-energy work rate, and he looks to generate offense while he's out there. His defense looks more oriented to generate turnovers than protecting his net, but that's more an indication of his scoring drive than lack of responsibilty. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Excellent skating--speed, light on his skates, turns and pivots are seamless. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note On the penalty kill, battling along the boards against two Spokane players, Jarvis is able to keep the puck tied up for a while. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Headman goes deep into the zone to retrieve a dumped puck, Jarvis trailing, and when the puck kicks out to him, Jarvis rips a one-timer on net. A lot of heat on that shot. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Shot from a howitzer, Jarvis screams uo ice and beats guys into the zone who were already at the blue line. Gets a drop pass, cuts hard at the goal line and feeds the puck to the slot. That would have been a goal if not for a brilliant poke check from the goalie. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Not getting enough quality ice time because the Winterhawks keep taking penalties. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Starting from one blue line, Jarvis and Beckman are in footrace, Jarvis with the puck. By the redline, Jarvis has a stride, though he had a bit more run to start with and Beckman had a bit of traffic. At the next blue line, Jarvis has to slide right to evade a defender, and Beckman is about even again. I'd give the edge to Jarvis, but Beckman was close. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note After his rush and gaining the zone, he moves the puck then takes up a powerplay spot at the net. Is that how he catches his breath? Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Reading the play, drifts into open ice. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Passes are released with no effort, but the weighting is generally perfect, if that's a thing. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Always finding open ice, and when opponents try to stop him, he slips past and finds a better, bigger space. He's ellusive with and without the puck. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Change of direction is superb. He can turn back on a dime. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Note Gets a clean breakaway, hooked, penalty shot. Sweeps left, pitty patt, dekes to backhand, scores. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Seth Jarvis Summary Seth Jarvis will likely be a riser in the 2020 draft class. He plays a constant attacking style, is a lightning fast skater with tremendous agility and technique. His hands are excellent and he gets his shot and passes away quickly and accurately. He plays with intelligence and mobility and seems to be a highly competitive player. I see him as a late first rounder with good scoring upside. Brian Fogarty Portland vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Ethan Del Mastro Note Tries to turn back, and his turn is tight enough, but he doesn't get good acceleration as he goes the other way. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ethan Del Mastro Note Up ice with the puck, his speed is about average, maybe a half-step slower than that. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Paired with Hoefenmayer. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Playing a safe game, likely because he has to work with Hoefenmayer constantly attacking up ice. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Tries to force a pass at the offensive blue line. Keating was well-covered, so the pass was not the best choice. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Really nice s-cut backwards strides. He might need to work a bit on top speed, but his small-space skating is excellent. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Spectacularly well-timed pinch gains puck possession and a rapid-fire attack. His choice garnered a full-on slapper from the high slot. Then he stays active, wins the puck in the right corner, and when Hoefenmayer goes deep into the opposite corner, Matier is back to his point. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Keeps his man outside the lane, then when the passing opportunity opens, he lifts his man's stick and eliminates the play. Well done. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Note Great poke check. Sweeps the puck away. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Matier Summary A 16-year-old defender playing a lot of minutes and asked to cover a lot of ice while his d-partner is actively engaged in the attack. He made some mistakes, but also made some excellent decisions with and without the puck. He already has size at 6'3 and 184 pounds, and skates well. He looks like a very promising prospect for the 2021 draft and beyond. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Note Poke check breaks up a rush. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Note Turns his defender, pulls up, fires a good shot on net. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Note Steps left and uses his hip to shield the puck from the defender, effectively boxing him out of the play. He earned two seconds for his team with a simple shift of his body. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Note Quinn has smart body-awareness--good positional player. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Note Killing penalties, working hard late in the period. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Note Quinn with his second stick infraction of the game. He's pushing the limits, and tipping over the edge at times. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Jack Quinn Summary Gets around the ice well, but it was his awareness and hockey iq that stood out in this game. At both ends of the ice, he used his body and edges to create separation or close gaps as appropriate. Plays a smart possession game with a good amount of offensive skill. Good play when he was one-on-one with a defender, and he created on his own. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
James Hardie Note Upright, but gets good knee bend when he wants to go. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
James Hardie Note He floats a lot. Not much urgency in his game at either end of the ice. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Joseph Garreffa Note Garreffa can fly. Head up, slick stickwork, a crackle of ozone as he passes by. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Kevin Bahl Note Bahl has a lot of tools, but his biggest asset is likely his cool under pressure. Which is good, because he's not going to beat forecheckers with his feet. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Hands are so fast, he was able to take that pass on his backhand, pull it straight back to his left and release the shot immediately. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Slips his man in the corner, peels into the circle, finds Hoefenmayer on the far post for a great opportunity. Then he follows up Hoefenmayer's shot looking for the rebound. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Looking amazingly dangerous on every shift. The Steelheads have no answer for him. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Turns are agile with the puck. He can twist and change directions with no effort. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Left side on the powerplay, dips a shoulder, digs with his left skate, then slides a pass to the point. The defender was completely fooled. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note The pucks gets turned over on the powerplay, Rossi last man back, and he gains a step on the breakaway then a diving stick sweep disrupts the attempt. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Goes behind the net and pins the defenseman with the puck, turns, finds the puck at this feet, and kicks a pass to the net front to create a deadly-looking opportunity. That one made me gasp. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Even in this forward-deep draft class, I think Rossi has a legitimate shot at the top ten. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Puck comes to him from the corner, he's in the low slot near the left circle, and he one-times it. Perfect choice, no hesitation. Saved, but a great scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Throws a breakout pass off the back of his headman, and the puck ricochets back into the defensive zone. That's the first clear mistake I've seen from him in the game. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Dazzling puck handling just schooled the opposing player. This kid has all the skills. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Rossi talking a lot, guiding his teammates, trying to organize on the faceoff. Then he outworks everyone to prove his point. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Just realized that he's capturing all of my attention. It's hard not to watch him when he's out there. And he's out there a lot. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Puck loose at the boards, as he closes, he chokes way up on his stick, pivots and passes. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Note Not physical, but will go to the net and battle for position. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Marco Rossi Summary Rossi continues to impress with every viewing. His work rate is off the charts, with constant effort on display on every shift. He plays such a smart, effective and simple game, with excellent wheels and soft hands. He has a variety of shooting options, his vision is excellent, and his decisions are nearly always spot on. He's a leader on the ice, playing his draft year like he's a overager veteran. His commitment to defense shows not only competitive nature but his on-ice command of the game, as well. He may be on the smaller side, but at 5'9 and 179 pounds he packs a lot of foot and hand strength into his frame and he doesn't look small on the ice. He is a multitool player and a top, top prospect in a deep class. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note On the right point, puck comes around the rim to him, and he is able to smoothly pull the puck off the wall with his backhand, slide to the forehand, and rip a shot. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note And there is Hoefenmayer's weakness: he just got caught lunging for a poke check in his own end and allows the attacker to step around him and get a clean shot on goal. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note Uses his speed and long stick, takes a good angle, and drives the puck carrier to the boards, then Hoefenmayer knocks the puck free. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note Another bomb from Hoefenmayer. He's just firing shots on net one after another. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note Defending a 5-on-3, so the coach has confidence in his defensive capabilities. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Summary Credited with six shots in this game, but he must have had at least twice as many attempts. When he's on the ice, the puck finds him. Still work to do in his zone, but outside of his zone, he's a threat, for certain. Unlike some other highly offense-oriented defenders of recent years, Hoefenmayer looks like he is committed to improving his defensive game and willing to put in the hard work in his zone. He's likely a player that will need to prove his worth and polish his two-way game in the AHL for a couple of years, but he also looks NHL capable. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Thomas Harley Note Harley can truly skate. Wind-like, that one. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ty Collins Note First step looks a little slow, but he picks up speed well after that. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ty Collins Note Pulls his man down, holding call against him. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Ty Collins Note He's an upright skater with no great technique. Needs to get lower, stronger. As such, his edges are good because that's what he relies on, but his speed and acceleration are lacking. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yanic Crete Note Battling deep for the pucks, wins the fight but the puck goes the other way. He skates out hard, gets an interception in the neutral zone and makes a diving pass to relaunch the offense. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Yanic Crete Note Tries to deke around Harley, which was, well, inadvisable. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Ottawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/23/2019
Adam Evanoff Note Evanoff has been incredible in this game. Facing a ton of shots, he has limited awkward rebounds, fought off traffic, and made several sensational saves even though he's been left out on a wire by himself. His lateral movement is nice. He's a battler, too. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Adam Evanoff Note Probably finishes this game with 50-plus saves [Editors Note: He faces 49 shots, and saved 46 of them.] Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Keeps his stick high when he's skating. It makes him look like he's off balance all the time. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Patient and steady in his own end. Skates well. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Has the puck in his own zone four-on-four, is able to spin away from a couple of forechecks, but never moves the puck and ends up bobbling it behind his own net. Hmmmmm. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Joins the rush, and wow, he has speed. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019

Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Tracks the puck carrier all the way out to the blue line, leaving a gaping hole in front of the his net. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Looks a lot better with the puck on his stick when he's hurtling through the neutral zone than he does when he has it in his own end. This kid is all heading up ice right now. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note More than willing to get up into the offensive game. His slapshot is okay. He holds it at the top, seeming to look for slap-pass options before putting the puck on net. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Loses his stick, but then uses his feet to shadow the puck carrier, tightening his gap, and forcing the puck out to the blue line. Well played. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Kid can move the puck. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Does well to collect a bad pass sent into his skates. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Aidan De La Gorgendierre Summary Playing a lot of minutes as a 17-year-old defenseman, he is being used in all situations. He has good size at 6'0 and 179 pounds and his skating is excellent or slightly better. He needs to fill some holes, but the hockey iq in his defensive zone is there, and his ability to carry or pass the puck up the ice and drive the attack will make him a dangerous opponent as he continues to develop. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Chase Wouters Note Drives through the neutral zone with the puck like he owns it. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019

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

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

Daemon Hunt Note Moving into the high slot, gets a pass from the boards and sends a hard wrist shot clanging off of the boards. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Daemon Hunt Note Dumps a puck from the red line, then beats two Saskatoon players to the puck in the corner. He holds back on his speed a lot of the time. But when he's not stingy, he shows tremendous pace. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Daemon Hunt Note Good clear on the penalty kill. He's adept at getting the puck out of his zone on the kill. Several times in this game he's done that with a cool head. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Daemon Hunt Note Big slapper on a puck sliding into his path. He timed that well, blasted it on goal. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Daemon Hunt Summary Hunt can skate. He's got a strong, solid frame already at 6'0 and 198 pounds, and he is easily Moose Jaws' best defenseman--and with Tracey out of the lineup, likely their best player. He plays all three zones the same: with cool intention and a drive to dominate the game. He needs to work on his shooting accuracy, but he has a good array of shots and gets a lot of power behind them as well. In his zone, he is reliable and calm and seems to care more about getting the puck out of danger than he is getting into the offense. However, once his zone is safe, he jets up the ice and gets involved. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note Two nice passes on his backhand from the offensive zone corner out to the point. Each pass was heavy but well weighted to allow the point man to handle them easily. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note Working on the second powerplay unit. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note He's following the puck instead of engaging in the play, which leaves him a step behind. When the puck comes to him, the defender is ready and gets a clean takeaway. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note First couple of steps are slower than average. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note On the left boards with the puck, passes to the circle. It would have been a good play except that the winger was well covered and the pass was broken up. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note Faceoff, puck skips past, and he can't win the race to the loose puck, even though he was the closest player to it. The Saskatoon team is fast, but Alarie should have won that. He's not a poor skater, he just labors to get those first steps to help him. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Alarie Note In a game with so many good skaters, he looks out of place. Needs improvement. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Eric Florchuk Note Once again, watching Florchuk just frustrates me. Size, speed, hustle, but no offensive instincts, creativity or finishing ability. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Kyle Crnkovic Note Changes direction quickly with the puck. Makes him hard to trap along the boards. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Kyle Crnkovic Note Really nice burst of speed. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Kyle Crnkovic Note Good cross-ice powerplay pass to Robins for the one-timer, wide. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Kyle Crnkovic Note Short, stocky player with good passes and offensive instincts. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Kyle Crnkovic Note Also killing penalties. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Kyle Crnkovic Note There are holes in his game, but skating is not one of them. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Kyle Crnkovic Note Tries a shot form the goal line when Wouters was waiting at the crease. He should have passed it, there. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Kyle Crnkovic Note If there's a seam, he'll likely find it and make a good, accurate pass. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Kyle Crnkovic Note Robbed at the doorstep. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note Fast hands to evade. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note Just hasn't found a rhythm yet in the first period. Has turned the puck over a couple of times. He's fighting the puck. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note Smart little self-pass off the boards behind the net, then passes out to Hunt, who unfortunately bobbles it. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note An entire shift in which he circled around his zone and had zero interaction with the actual play Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note Playing a ton of minutes in this game. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note Has the puck in his own zone trying to lead the powerplay breakout, but turns the puck over and allows a clean breakaway. Yuck. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note Out on the penalty kill, gets a puck, enters the zone, then passes back out into the neutral zone and straight to an opposing player. Yuck. These are the plays that the 16 year old needs to eliminate from his game. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note Works hard deep in his own zone and draws a penalty. His effort while down 2-0 in the third is admirable. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note Just off in this game. Missing passes, turning pucks over. But there's something good to his game. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note One touch backhand pass against the flow, right on the tape. Clever play, that. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Note Still driving play even though his team is down 3-0 with just a couple of minutes left. No quit here. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Ryder Korczak Summary Made a lot of mistakes with the puck that underscores his lack of experience, but Korczak can play the game. He knows what he wants to do, he just needs to get his game to the point where he's more comfortable in tight conditions. He has time to develop, of course, and should he use that time well, he could become a good prospect, no doubt. With Tracey out of the lineup he's carrying the load. He needs some pieces around him to take on some of that weight and allow him to naturally progress. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note Beats out an icing by getting around the defenseman and winning the foot race. His first few steps are excellent. He just won three separate puck races on the same shift. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note I liked this little play a lot: Off the defensive-zone faceoff, he's playing the net side, puck slides out, he steps in and one-touches toward the corner for a safe possession play. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note Steps into a lane and intercepts a pass. Gets tripped but no call. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note He's all over the place, always involved in the play. He just made an excellent net-front downward deflection that should have been a goal. Then he's banging away at the rebound. I'm really liking his game. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note Killing penalties with his speed. He's a threat to turn it the other way and his puckhandling is good enough to eat up seconds. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note Tries to deke and split two defenders, and nearly succeeds but the puck slips away at the last second. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note Killing penalties with an active stick and harassment speed. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note Turns his defender around, steps back against the grain, and uses the confused defenseman as a screen for a snapshot that beats the nettie high glove. Good move. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note His hockey sense is really good, at both ends. He has his teeth buried into every play on every shift, no matter what he's being used for at the time. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note I really like how he puts some heat on his passes, but only to cross the space, not too hard for the receivers to handle. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Note His balance is excellent. Just took a solid hit from a bigger player and kept his feet. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Tristen Robins Summary I find it puzzling that Robins is only producing at .65 points per game at this point [Editors Note: At game 29, Robins has 19 points on 9 goals and 10 assists), mainly because the puck is always on his stick and he has the skills to get it in the net. He's fast and agile, uses his quickness to his advantage whether on offense or defense, and plays of full game. In this game he looked to me like a player that could explode for a chunk of points and raise his draft stock. Brian Fogarty Moose Jaw vs Saskatoon (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/17/2019
Chase Stillman Note Tries a little pitty-pat pass that just hit the defenders skates. Yikes. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Chase Stillman Note Looks a bit lost in his zone on this shift, like he's trying to figure out what to do. Watches as a puckcarrier gets to the slot for a chance. Come on. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Chase Stillman Note Tries to cut back with the puck, but loses the handle and turns it over. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Chase Stillman Note Tries to toe drag around the defender, loses the puck and the defender clears it easily, Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Chase Stillman Note Solid hit separates the man from the puck. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Chase Stillman Note He's seen plenty of shifts, but his game is lackluster despite a good work rate. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Chase Stillman Note Everything is just a little off. Passes are a bit too far out of reach, dekes just a little too slow, etc. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Chase Stillman Summary A young player (2021 draft eligibile) in his rookie OHL season who shows the signs of inexperience. He's currently listed at 5'10, 174 pounds, but his father, former NHLer and current Sudbury coach Cory Stillman, was 6'0, 200 when he played. Chase plays with a lot of enegy, is competitive and has some physicality, and he looks like a player that has good hockey sense but hasn't yet been able to put it all together. Moves around the ice well and has decent offensive instincts, so his development over the next year will be key. It will be interesting to watch him later this season to see how much improvement he gains over his rookie year. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Gets turned around trying to defend a four-on-two, and Byfield makes him pay. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Moves very well. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Faceoff draw comes to his stick and he unleashes a shot that looked like it came from out of the blue,. I don't think the goalie moved at all. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Takes a hard rub out in order to make the pass and free his linemate for a chance. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Doesn’t waste time or movement when he has the puck. Decisions are immediate and effective. Good vision. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Cole Perfetti Note More hunched over than deep knee bends. Uses his edges a lot for movement and maintaining momentum. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Likes to hover around in the right circle, but his play there is passive, waiting for the puck to find him. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Has the puck pushing through the neutral zone, brings speed into the offensive zone, slides left, misses the net with a wrist shot. This is definitely not his best game of the year. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Love his vision and creativity with the puck. He finds sneaky plays and can make the passes to initiate them. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Cole Perfetti Note Another chance with the puck, snaps a hard wrist shot, but again is clangs off of the boards. Hit the net, man! Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Cole Perfetti Summary He shoots and plays hard, he shows a tremendous drive to create offense, and he makes good, fast decisions with the puck. However, in this game, he missed the net often and looked like he was simply trying too hard most of the game. His skating is good or better, but has room for improvement. He's a quality prospect, for sure, but I wasn't thrilled with what I saw in this game. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Ethan Cardwell Note Accelerated to his left wing lane, got the puck and used speed to push the defenders back, then a quick stop and pass to the slot, but a bit too much heat and the pass skips into the corner. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Ethan Cardwell Note Got back well to try to defend the rush, but looks like he made a bad read in a tough spot, and the back door player was left alone for a one-timer goal. Actually, on replay, I think it was the backside defender (Mitchell Smith) who took the wrong man. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Ethan Cardwell Note Speedy. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Ethan Cardwell Note Has a fast release on his wrist shot, gets the puck on the goalie before he can be ready. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Ethan Cardwell Note Lots of hustle in his game, and he's fast so he gets around the ice, thinking the game at both ends. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Ethan Cardwell Summary Comes from a line of hockey players (his grandfather saw 53 NHL games and his dad was a quality NCAA player and journeyman minor leaguer). He has great speed and plays with intent and competitiveness, doing little things well. He's a young 2020 draft-eligilbe (Aug 30th birthdate), and needs to put some more strength onto his 5'10, 157-pound frame. I liked what I saw from him, though. He's not a top-round player, but could be a nice middle-round pick who develops. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Jack Thompson Note Generates speed while transitioning the puck up ice, but his stride can be cleaned upo a bit and he'll get even better. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Jack Thompson Note Holds his gaps, keeps his man to the outside and fangless. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Jack Thompson Note Works smart on the blue line, holding and walking the line, draw defending players towards him, then finding the open forward down low. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Jack Thompson Note I like his stick, his mobility, and his engagement in the game. He's always a part of the play somehow. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Jack Thompson Note Doesn't over-extend himself. He times his actions well and seems to have good sense of the unfolding play. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Jack Thompson Summary Smart, steady defender who minds his gaps, joins the rush, and has a nice first pass. He has good size at 6'1, 172 and he plays well in all three zones. His points total so far (18 points in 23 games) seems like a true indication of his abilities. One to pay attention to. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Jack Thompson Note Puck is deep in the offensive zone corner, ,and he's back at the blue line. Takes a look up at the clock, sees ten seconds left in the period, and drives up to the slot. Smart move. Puck never comes out of the corner, but he put himself in a low risk/high reward spot on the ice. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Joshua Bloom Note Skating is a bit all over the place. Not the quickest or smoothest pivots, has a long push but doesn't get a lot of power from it. High flicking kick at the end. His steps are slushy on his turn and acceleration. Just awkward looking everywhere. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Joshua Bloom Note Takes the puck a step into the offensive zone, then drops a pass to the boards, where his teammate enters with pace, finds the the third man cutting to the slot--goal. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Joshua Bloom Summary Honestly, with Saginaw wearing their pink cancer awareness jerseys, it was hard to discern numbers and names, so I didn't see many of his shifts. What I did see was a player with upside who needs to work on skating, but showed a nice foundation to build upon. He's a 2021, so he has some time to develop and improve. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Landon McCallum Note Wins the puck in front of his net, passes out and then good speed up ice, heads to the net and taps in a juicy rebound for an easy goal. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Landon McCallum Note He's a 9/5/2003 birthddate, so this is almost his D-2 year, but for all of 11 days. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Landon McCallum Note Back deep in his zone, he's communicating, taking good positions to defend and then, after his team gets the puck, he takes a great angle to open a passing lane and allow the breakout. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Landon McCallum Note Decent-looking mechanics but he needs more leg strength to build speed, and needs to get his feet back beneath him more quickly Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Landon McCallum Note Hockey sense looks good at both ends. He looks like he's poised to jump up ice, but he's smart defensively and stays in position. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Landon McCallum Summary McCallum looked more like a draft-year player than one who has just turned 16. Sudbury selected him 15th-overall in the OHL draft, and it's easy to see why. He can skate, he looks like a leader on the ice, and plays a high-iq game in both ends. For a young player, his defensive awareness and commitment were obvious. What's more, he did look at all like a player taking shortcuts. Everything was intentional and his game sense is excellent. I like this player a lot. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note Good lean on his edges, but looksa bit bent over when he has the puck on his stick. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note Reads a potential play to the slot, and goes there, lifts the defenders stick to give his puckhandling winger a bit more space. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note Lovely sequence from Byfield: gets a puck in tight quarters, makes a patient, effective pass and takes off. Gets the puck back, freezes the goaltender, then passes far post for a tap-in goal. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note Big and strong with the puck, Not the most dazzling puckhandler, but he is so strong on the puck. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note Long, strong strides gets him up ice in a hurry. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note His wrist shot is ridiculously hard and comes off of his stick in a flash. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note Causing all types of problems for the defense. He can power past, so they back off. With time, his shot is dangerous, so they block the lane. But then he has vision and sharp passing at angles, so that's a good option, too. What do you defend? Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note Out killing penalties while up 4-1, and working hard, mucking behind the net. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note Speed is probably very good at best (1.5) but he's a good skater, ore fluid than dynamic. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note Had a chance for a shoulder check along the boards, but opted for a stick check instead. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note Passes are accurate, but its more the strength in his wrists that gets the passes away with zip, allowing him to disguise his intentions and surprise opponents. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note Just snapped a defender off at the ankles with deft, fast stickwork. He has a long reach and fast hands, so he can pull the puck back from a long way out. Nice move. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note His speed will improve. It's good now, but will get better, Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Note Out again killing penalties, intercepts, kicks the puck up ice then chases it down. When the defending player tries to cut off his lane to the net, Byfield pulls up, threads a pass to the trailer for the shorthanded goal. Beautiful effort from Byfield. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Quinton Byfield Summary Byfield has proved more than capable in the competition for the #2 2019 draft spot behind Lafreniere. He has excellent size (6'4, 214) and good skating ability that looks like it will impove with more power skating training. He shows amazing wrist and hand strength, snapping passes and shots with little visible effort and great deception because of it, and he has the vision and awareness to make really good reads and pick out options. He kills penalties, plays solid defense and is a disrupter in the neutral zone. He has all the tools. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Roberto Mancini Note Tries to stick check an attacker at his blue line and misses entirely, allowing an easy entry, then he's scrambling to get back. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Roberto Mancini Note Movement is generally okay. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Roberto Mancini Note Puck comes to him at the point, he has time but slops it towards the net and into the shinpads of the defending forward. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Roberto Mancini Summary Big, takes up space in his zone, will put a body on the opponent, but he lacks top-end speed and looks more like a stay-at-home type. He will trail a rush, but he's not leading them. He put himself out of position at times, but he's another of the many young players in this game, and at 16 he has a lot of time to improve. Perhaps needs to engage in the offense more, because he showed the capability when he did. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Roberto Mancini Note That was a time when Mancini got up into the offensive play, pinching in with the puck and findings Jenkins for a chance. Good pass. Brian Fogarty Sudbury vs Saginaw (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/26/2019
Anthony Tabak Note Has size, looks like a tank on skates, and on that opening shift, he seemed about as agile as a tank, too. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/31/2019
Anthony Tabak Note Really lacking foot speed. He was just struggling to get back on the backcheck. The play just ran away from him. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/7/2019
Anthony Tabak Note Second time in the first period where he tried to make a hit but missed his man because he couldn't adjust to the movement. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Anthony Tabak Summary Got a lot of ice time in the game, but was not particularly affective, primarily because his skating keeps him a couple of steps behind the pace of play. Has size, looks like a smart player, but needs work on his feet before he can reach the next level. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Jack Quinn Note Excellent speed up the left wing side, he was flying. Good, powerful strides, smooth and clean mechanics. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Jack Quinn Note Gets tied up behind the net, but instead of just waiting for help and battling on the boards he tries to flip it to the crease, and the puck ends up clearing the offensive zone and the puck goes all the way back to his own end. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Jack Quinn Note Loses an edge and spills into the corner. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Jack Quinn Note Changes direction well, moves with the puck, draws a tripping penalty by outmanuevering the opposing forward. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Jack Quinn Note Super-fast release and he roofs it short side to beat the goalie. Nice shot. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Jack Quinn Summary Quinn is a good player who looked like a second- or third-round pick type. Needs development, but has a good sense of play and awareness, a nice shot and plays up and down the ice. He's an early birthdate (Sep 19) which is interesting for his draft curve, but he can play. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Marco Rossi Note Good positional awareness in his end, but when he gets a loose puck, he tries a risky pass from behind his net to a defenseman right at the crease, and turns the puck over. Would have been better served with a more cautious play there. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Marco Rossi Note Heading a breakout, but Keating doesn't pass to him and Rossi goes offsides. He should have adjusted his entry speed or dragged his foot, but in all fairness, Keating should have moved the puck more quickly, too. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Marco Rossi Note Has excellent speed and uses it to win puck races, and he just caught Rees on a backcheck, and we know Rees can skate. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Marco Rossi Note Passed when shooting may have been his better choice. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Marco Rossi Note Outpaced Tabak by a good margin. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Marco Rossi Note Definitely a pass-first player. He just passed up another shooting opportunity. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Marco Rossi Note Rossi is an excellent (2+) skater. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Marco Rossi Note Good vision to wait and find Quinn on the far post. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Marco Rossi Summary Another early birthdate in the 2020 class (Sep 23) but Rossi should be considered a top 20 prospect. He will be among the top skaters in the class, and has great vision and hands. Would like to see more of his shooting, though he did launch a couple of nice, accurate attempts in this game. The game itselft was bit sloppy overall and Sarnia was not the toughest competition, so I'd like to see more of him against quality competition. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note Looks like an average skater, speed is just okay, but he just unleashed a monster slapshot that handcuffed the netminder. I thought that was in. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note Wrist shot has zip, too. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note Back defending a two-on-one, communicating well with his defensive partner, but ultimately gets turned around and lost at the circle. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note Another huge one-time slapper. Wow, does he like to rifle that thing on net. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note Now he wrists one up for a tip in, which is completed for the game's second goal. Hoefenmayer has nice variety of weapons from the blue line. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note Takes a great angle to a possible breakaway and uses a long reach to swat the puck away. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note A few of his passes have been behind his targets on the move. His shot is definitely better than his passing. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Note Looks like an experienced OHL defender, making smart plays all over the ice. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Noel Hoefenmayer Summary There's a lot to like about Hoefenmayer, particularly his rocket shot. Plays a smart game in his own end, showing positioning and awareness, but it's when he turns up ice that he really drives play. Maybe his passing isn't as sharp as it could be, but he shoots hard and accurately and brings a variety of speeds and angles to the net. He will lead a charge, but stays responsible and gets back to his defense with urgency. I like his play a lot, but as an older player in the OHL, the real test will come soon when he takes that step into the pro ranks. If he can translate his play up the ladder (which I see no reason to doubt) he could become a quality middle-pair NHL type who works the point on the powerplay, too. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Quinn Yule Note His strides are short because he doesn't pull his feet back underneath him, and doesn't get full extension. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Quinn Yule Note Needs to do a lot of work on his mechanics to build more power and speed. Right now he is just too slow to make an impact. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Ryan Mast Note Positioned well to cut off the only entry pass option and he makes an easy interception because of that. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Ryan Mast Note Tricky wrist shot almost beat the nettie up high. I think it might have hit him in the mask. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Ryan Mast Note Does well to reach out and poke the puck away from Quinn who was trying to drag the puck to the slot. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Theo Hill Note Nice forechecking presence with aome physical game. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Theo Hill Note Like his pace and mobility. Fluid on his edges, too, but he just tried to throw a hit and actually got the worst of it. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Theo Hill Note Good push gets him up to speed quickly off the glide turn. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Ty Voit Note Gets the puck in the neutral zone and slows the play to allow his teammate to get into space, then makes a soft flip pass to him at the blue line, springing him for an attack. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Ty Voit Note Has good speed and accelerates quickly. Keeps his speed on his edges. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Ty Voit Note He can handle the puck, nice soft hands and quick puck movement under pressure. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Ty Voit Note Turns a circle without the puck in the center of the offensive zone, turning his back to the puck and taking away an option. Stop and change would have been the much better tack there instead of the wide turn. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Sarnia (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2019
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Bo Groulx is going to be a high-quality NHL third-liner. Smart, strong, with skill. Maybe not enough scoring touch to be a top six, but he could have a nice long career ahead of him. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Groulx is dominating in the faceoff circle. He's close to 70% in this game. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cameron Whynot Note Good mechanics, nice edgework for quick stops and change of direction. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cameron Whynot Note Nice wrist shot to the far corner, bar down for his feet goal in the Q. He made a good read to be in position to the get the pass, then finished with the wrist shot. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cameron Whynot Note Puts up a puck to the net, but more of a deflectoin opportunity than a true shot. Still, it found its way to the goaltender. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cameron Whynot Note Has a good bit of work to do on his defensive play, but he has time. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cameron Whynot Note Hard low slapper from the point gets in on net, but Lavalee swallows it up. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cameron Whynot Note Another shift where he was drifting a bit in his own zone. Needs to tighten up his positioning when the puck is away from the net. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Cameron Whynot Summary Although at times it was easy to see his lack of experience, Whynot has lot of tools to work with to improve his game. He moves well, shows good sense of when to go up ice, when to fall back, a good shot, good mobility. He's 6'2 and 181 pounds at 16 years old, so seeing this type of play at D-2 is tremendously encouraging. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Elliot Desnoyers Note Okay speed, but doesn't look light on his feet. Agility might be a bit suspect, and turns are slow (this was his first shift of the game). Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Elliot Desnoyers Note Another instance where he shows little agility, just chopping little steps trying to turn and go. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Elliot Desnoyers Note He looks like an all-around above average player, but not better than that, yet. Good hands, decent skater, okay awareness, but nothing that jumps out as exceptional. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Elliot Desnoyers Note Second man in on a 2-on-0, takes the pass and roofs it past Gravel. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Elliot Desnoyers Note Speed is average. I'd like him more if he was faster, because his hands and hockey sense are good. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Elliot Desnoyers Summary Despite needing to improve on his footwork, Desnoyers is an above-average player in other aspects. Probably won't be a top-60 choice, but could be a player who is a quality third or fourth-round pick with upside. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jakob Pelletier Note Two straight sequences in which his defensive positioning was excellent and he easily intercepted two passes that led to breakouts. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jakob Pelletier Note Shoulder checks a puck carrier to force an early pass, then gets position in the slot. Gets the puck, makes a deft pass to the circle for a scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jakob Pelletier Note He recognizes opportunities so immediately, and then has the feet and hands to capitalize. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jakob Pelletier Note Answers with an excellent backhand pass to the slot and the game is tied. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jakob Pelletier Summary Just keeps looking better with every viewing. He's a complete player who should make an impact at the NHL level. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jordan Spence Note Shows a lot of patience with the puck deep in his zone, and often makes the right play because of that. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jordan Spence Note Spence vs Dube is an interesting contests and guide for measuring Spence's mobility.He gains position and beats Dube to the puck. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Jordan Spence Summary The Los Angeles prospect (LA took him 95th overall in 2019) plays the kind of defensive game that is difficult to describe, because he just does everything right. Patient with the puck, unflappable at both ends of the ice. Very good on his feet, always aware and paying attention to the play around him. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Justin Barron Note Holding the puck behind his net, waiting for the breakout to set up, then fires a risky long pass that was tipped away by the forechecking player. Why not pass that to the left side instead of trying the bomb up the middle? Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Justin Barron Note Starts to leave the zone way too early and gets caught up at the blue line while the opposition gets a great scoring chance after a turnover. Coaches will hate that bit of video. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Justin Barron Note Gathers a puck, stops and cuts back, makes an easy breakout pass to start an attack. That's the simple play and use of his skating that he needs more of. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Justin Barron Note He's playing a risky game too often, which he used to get away with when McIsaac, et al, were backing him up. Now he's got to be smarter than that. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Justin Barron Note Spends a lot of time having to chase back because he's been caught up ice. When he's settled in his end, his defense and positioning is solid, but its rare that he's actually settled at all. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Justin Barron Note Tries to make a hit but misses, but the problem was more that he the only player between the puck carrier and the net. He's lucky that he got some late help from backcheckers. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Justin Barron Note Banging away from the blue line until Trepanier collects a rebound and pots the go-ahead goal with four minutes left. Two shots were hard slapshots, then a strong wrist shot finally yields the goal. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Justin Barron Note That sequence was Barron capsulated: skates the puck up through the neutral zone, smooth and easy, cuts and fakes one guy then banks a nice pass off the boards to find Lavoie. Good, controlled play. But then Barron just kept going into the offensive zone.When the defender is able to poke the puck away from Lavoie, there is a sudden 2-on-1 the other way and Barron is nowhere to be seen. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Justin Barron Summary Barron looks like a player who has been able to outskate all of competition for so long and rely on his speed and movement to cover up risky plays and mistakes, that he's developed some sloppy habits. He needs to correct those, and soon. But as a package, with a bit of discipline, he is still an excellent prospect. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Raphael Lavoie Note Nice play, no-look backhand pass to Groulx for a near goal. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Raphael Lavoie Note There's no question the he has all of the NHL tools, but he needs to increase the urgency and consistency in his game. If not, he's going to waste a lot of skill and talent. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Raphael Lavoie Note Carries the puck out of his zone, then carriers it a bit further that he should have, passing to the wing a couple of strides later and the play fizzles out. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Raphael Lavoie Note Lavoie moving away from the pass instead of coming back to it, allows Khovanov to step between and intercept to start the game winning rush. A nice play by Khovanov, but that goal is on Lavoie. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Raphael Lavoie Summary Lavoie is a player that will make Oilers fans insane. He's big, smooth and so skilled, has a laserbeam wrist shot, but he only plays at about 80% most of the time. He doesn't look disinterested, he just doesn't seem to have the high revving motor that would make him a star player. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Sam Dow Note Smooth transitions front to back. Nice, effortless swivel. He's a good skater. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Samuel Dube Note Pinballing around, doesn't stop, gets a puck and wrists a hard shot on net. Kid is always driving his feet. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Samuel Dube Note His release is good, but his shot isn't particularly special. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Samuel Dube Note Dube's finish of the Peeters' pass was pretty, but what a feed he got there. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Samuel Dube Summary Hockey is all about work rate and effort for Dube. He has speed and agility and a drive to always make an impact. Never stops moving, never stops working. Maybe he doesn't have the high-end skills but he makes up for it with constant pressure on the puck. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Senna Peeters Note Lacks acceleration but gets decent speed. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Senna Peeters Note Playing on the top PP unit with Groulx, Lavoie, etc. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Senna Peeters Note Protects the puck through the neutral zone then makes a fine pass for a clean zone entry. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Senna Peeters Note Want to see him going harder on the backcheck on that one. He was slow to make his way back to the zone at the end of a shift. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Senna Peeters Note My first gasp of the game comes at 10:21 left in the third when Peeters laced a pass from his own blue line at the right side boards, up to middle ice at the far blue line, splitting two defenders and hitting Dube perfectly, who then skates in for a clean breakaway goal. What a gorgeous pass that was! Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Senna Peeters Note Another hard, accurate pass at a distance. He can dish the long-range passes. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Senna Peeters Note Nice block in OT. I like this kid. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Senna Peeters Summary First time watching Peeters, and the son of a Belgian player and coach showed the kind of solid, fundamental play that would be expected from a coach's kid. His passing is his strongest asset at this point, but he also shows good feet and a high hockey iq. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Zachary LHeureux Note In his own zone, aggressive to go out to the point and attack the puck. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Zachary LHeureux Note Looks well-balanced on his skates, takes a hit, keeps his feet and maintains puck possession. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Zachary LHeureux Note Earns an assist by driving the net, protecting the puck with a Halifax defender literally draped over his back, turns and finds his man on the doorstep. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Zachary LHeureux Note Gets a puck at the point, looks off the defender and passes diagonally to the right circle to an open player. Like the vision and the confidence. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Zachary LHeureux Note Tries to line up Lavoie and whiffs. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Zachary LHeureux Note Already a good skater, by his draft year he should be excellent or better. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Zachary LHeureux Note Edges and hands make him elusive with the puck. And he's willing to go to the hard areas of the zone. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Zachary LHeureux Note Doesn't seem to mind contact, either taking and initiating. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Zachary LHeureux Note He seems to like to go to the crease and look for tips or rebounds. He's always around the paint when he's in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Zachary LHeureux Note Bobbles a pass attempt, but regathers, sees a lane, and rips a well-disguised shot the gets deflected out of play. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Zachary LHeureux Summary The rookie forward and 2021-eligible player is already playing at better than a point-per-game. He plays a skilled game while not afraid of getting his hands dirty. Plays around the crease, and takes the puck to the net. But that doesn't mean he is just a grinder. He can skate, uses his stocky frame well (5'11, 194 pounds) and has a good shot. He also plays a smart game in his own end, so he's a commodity in all game situations. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/25/2019
Alexis Lafreniere Note Moves the puck with patient simplicity. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Alexis Lafreniere Note Uses his stick so adeptly, whether its lifiting sticks, creating space, positioning and tying opponents. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Alexis Lafreniere Note Gets a little physical at his own blue line, cross checks the puck carrier and creates a turnover. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Alexis Lafreniere Note Doesn't have elite speed, but he's fast. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Alexis Lafreniere Note Beautiful pass, diagonal to the far post for an easy tap-in goal. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Alexis Lafreniere Note Sees the ice so well, and his stick is an extension of his vision: he sees the pass and makes it. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Alexis Lafreniere Note Good view of Lafreniere at full stride. He's improving, and will continue to get better. Likely to have excellent NHL speed by the time he is 19 or 20. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Alexis Lafreniere Note Puck on his stick, slides to his right to open a lane, wrists one just wide. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Alexis Lafreniere Note Another display of excellent stick skills as he lifts the puck carrier's stick, takes the puck and moves it to a teammate. So fast and smooth. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Christan Krygier Note Battling Noel in front of the net, matching his strength and mobility, good physical position. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Christan Krygier Note Handles Veleno who tries to power around him, using stick, body position and levereage to get the job done. Good effort, there, against a top prospect. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Christan Krygier Note Corrals a puck in the corner, then skates it hard right at to Canadian forecheckers, but one-hands it up the boards for a forward to finish the breakout. Daring, but effective. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Jacob Bernard-Docker Note Manning his spot at the crease, active eyes, keeping track of the play. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Jon Gruden Note Killing penalties, stick on ice, blocking shots. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Jon Gruden Note Gets a nice pass from Zegras but can't handle it cleanly and he loses the puck. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Kevin Bahl Note Lots of height and range, good agility, maybe lacking a step. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Kevin Bahl Note Gets beaten by York to the outside, sticks a leg out and trips him. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Kevin Bahl Note He has the size, but lacks the fluid mobility and lateral quickness he'll need going up the ladder. Must work on his feet. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Nicholas Robertson Note Has good speed getting up ice. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Nicholas Robertson Note Draws a holding penalty by keeping his feet moving in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Nicholas Robertson Note Reads the play so well. Intercepts a pass turns up ice, then drops between his legs to create a chance. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Nicholas Robertson Note End of a long shift, he gets his body between the puck and a much larger Canadian player, boxing him out of the play and winning the puck. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Nicholas Robertson Note Takes a pass at speed on the right-wing boards, tangles with the defender and goes down, but keeps puck control, regains his feet, stops and wires a pass to the top of the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Nicholas Robertson Note First step is excellent. He can close distance with one push. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Nicholas Robertson Note A remarkable feed as he carries over the blue line, stops and shifts left on one foot, then whips a blind pass to Johnson entering on the right boards. Johnson scores, but that was all Robertson. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Nolan Foote Note On the same powerplay shift, taking up residence in the right-wing circle, he bricked two incoming passes. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Oliver Wahlstrom Note It's rare that a goalie gets a clean stop on Wahlstrom's shot. He makes rebound control nearly impossible. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Oliver Wahlstrom Note A lot to like about his game, but he still needs to work on agility and quick turns. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Riley Damiani Note Skating is fine but he needs to tighten up his acceleration and first steps. He's leaving something behind right now. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Serron Noel Note Looks so fast and strong screaming up the right-wing length of the ice, the throws a hard, hard wrist shot on net. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Thomas Harley Note Footrace for a loose puck skittering up the length of the ice. Janicke was maybe a step faster over the distance, but Harley easily held his own. Then, after Harley gathered the puck, Janicke was faster on the sweeping turn and stripped the puck. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Trevor Janicke Note Understands tht the puck is about to come to him in his own zone, has his head up looking for his next move so when the puck comes, he already knows what he wants to do. Brian Fogarty Canada vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/3/2019
Trevor Janicke Note Footrace for a loose puck skittering up the length of the ice. Janicke was maybe a step faster over the distance, but Harley easily held his own.

Aku Raty Note His stick is active in his own end, maintaining good gap distance and stick on pucks and in lanes. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Aku Raty Note Not creating a lot of offense, but playing solid in all zones. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Aku Raty Summary There's a lot to like about his game, his high work rate, skating ability, defensive abilities. He is constantly hassling the puck and trying to make something happen. However, he did not really generate any offensive chances in this game. Made some nice passes, but he ended the game without a shot on goal. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Curtis Hall Note Clean faceoff win. A little sluggish off of his turns, but his first couple of steps look okay. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Curtis Hall Note Mechanics look good skating up ice. Not overly fast yet but he has a base to build from. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Curtis Hall Note Good angle, gets leverage and dumps Ranta off the puck as he tries to enter the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Curtis Hall Note Big strides make him above average to good straight line, but needs a bit more jump. Balance is a little suspect. Battling in front of the net but getting great skate strength and struggling to hold position. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Curtis Hall Note Better shift from him. Had a couple of nice puck moves, but mostly just working hard around the net, then gets a puck and wrists it home from four feet out. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Curtis Hall Summary A bit hit or miss in the game, but he has good size and is an okay skater with what looks like a good foundation for improvement. He worked hard, but at times seemed to be chasing the play a bit. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Jake Pivonka Note Sloppy backhand pass towards the point that was covered, putting his defender into a tricky spot with the puck. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Jake Pivonka Note Backhands a puck in the neutral zone that is just a clean giveaway. Not a wise play. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Jake Pivonka Note Trying to get out of his zone, nearly gives the puck away, regains control, then passes straight to a Finnish defender at the opposite blue line. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Jake Pivonka Note Puck slips out of reach while pushing through the neutral zone and he puts his teammates offsides. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Jake Pivonka Summary My opinion on Pivonka has not really changed over the last year. He's a good hockey player, but looks like a bottom-six workhorse who will kill penalties and play hard on every shift, but not contribute a lot to the offense. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
K'Andre Miller Note Takes the puck behind his own net, powers up ice through the middle then unleashes a hard, low, far-side wrist shot from distance that almost beats the Finnish goaltender. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
K'Andre Miller Note Note on Miller's defensive play: he just took a nice angleon the puck carrier in the neutral zone. Last year he misread that play consistently. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
K'Andre Miller Note Just got undressed by Kivenmaki, who left Miller standing still looking at his own feet for puck and Kivenmaki was already behind him. Yikes. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
K'Andre Miller Note His shot is so powerful. He just wristed one that hit Drury--a tough kid--in the stomach and it looked like he was truly suffering on the ice. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Kim Nousianen Note Like a lot of his puck decisions, but a couple have been clunkers. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019

Lassi Thomson Note Up two goals in the third, crosschecks a US forward into the net. Two minutes shorthanded that the Finns didn't need. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Lassi Thomson Summary Played well in the game, used his feet and intelligence a lot to make good little plays that helped his team. He still has work to do to develop and improve his game but the tools are there, no question. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Parker Ford Note Gets up to speed in two steps, tight turns, active skater. Aloows him to change direction and fool incoming puck carriers in the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Parker Ford Note Fending off the defender, cuts behind the net, then backhands one through the crease but there was no one there to get a stick on it. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Parker Ford Note Can't catch up to Sampo Ranta who gets a clean breakaway goal. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Trevor Zegras Note Puckhandling at and below the goal line, buzzing the net, the Finns can't take it away from him. Then he makes a wonderful little pass to the top of the paint that made me gasp. Wow! Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Trevor Zegras Note Same shift, deft little change of angle and he hits the post from the top of the circle. Man, I like watching this kid play. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Trevor Zegras Note Again on the same shift, brings the puck back into the offensive zone using one hand and cutting between a couple of Finnish players for a clean zone entry. Sensational shift. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Trevor Zegras Note Exceptional vision. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019

Ville Heinola Note Keeping position at the net, attentive, composed. Good stick lift to prevent an opportunity at the crease. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Ville Heinola Note Playing top of the umbrella on the powerplay, really nice leg fake that opened a lane but his shot was saved. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Zac Jones Note Short strides without extension but gets decent speed regardless. Makes a quick one-touch pass on a loose puck. Good awareness on that play. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Zac Jones Note Quick wrist shot while sliding right along the blue line (he's a left-handed shot) Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019

Zac Jones Note Looks confidant handling the puck, either in transition or managing the point. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Zac Jones Note Could be more careful with the puck in his own zone. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Zac Jones Note Bad shift: nearly turns the puck over in his own zone, then up ice gets easily knocked to the ice and the puck goes the other way. Then back at his own zone, he loses his man and the result is a goal against. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Zac Jones Note Trails the rush into the offensive zone and makes himself easily available in the high slot. Kaliyev finds him but the Jones wrist shot is saved. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Zac Jones Summary Jones was just okay for me in this game. Above average skating but nothing special. Moved the puck okay but made some questionable choices with the puck. Showed an okay shot, and was mostly good in his own zone. Just nothing exceptional on display in this contest. Brian Fogarty Finland vs USA (WJSS 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2019
Akil Thomas Note Gets position in front of the net, then gets a good tip and low point shot and deflects it up and into the net. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Akil Thomas Summary I wasn't watching him in this game but he did everything he could to be noticed. Had two key blocked shots on rockets from the point. Had the tip-in goal. Worked hard on every shift and used every weapon he had to make an impact. He looks more promising every time I see him. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Alex Newhook Note Seeming a bit passive so far, but when he has the puck, the Swedish defenders can't take it away from him. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Alex Newhook Note Drives to the net without the puck, and a great pass finds him at full speed, but his one touch try goes just wide of the net. Great play all around. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Alex Newhook Summary Looked more tentative in this game but his smart play with the puck and attention to the game was still evident throughout. He needs a couple of years of quality compeition to help develop his game. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Braden Schneider Note Does well to maintain position and body up against a charging and deking Raymond, and is able to slow the attack. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Braden Schneider Note Gets caught way up ice, and a two-on-two goes the other way, but it takes Schneider a long time to get back into the play. Needs more hustle there. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Braden Schneider Note Catches the heavy-footed Cederqvist cutting into the zone and just levels him with a well-placed shoulder check square into the chest. Oooof! Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Braden Schneider Summary There's a lot to like in Schneider's game, including his mobility and positioning, on top of his willingness to bring physical play to his own zone. At 6'2 and 210 pounds, the 2020 draft-eligible needs attention. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Carson Focht Note Little steps to shift position, keeps his stick on the ice. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Carson Focht Note Generates good speed while carrying the puck up ice, can't find an outlet as carries throught the offensive zone, so he tries a wraparound, saved. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Filip Cederqvist Note Feathers a pass throught the neutral zone and hits his target perfectly. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Filip Cederqvist Note Skating looks labored. He's not dynamic on his feet. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Filip Cederqvist Note Not seeing a lot of creativity from Cederqvist, but he uses his stick well and is engaged in the play in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Filip Cederqvist Summary Although he has some skill, Cederqvist is too mechanical and deliberate at this point. You can see the ability, but he just doesn't have the footspeed or creativity to capitalize to any degree. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Gabriel Fortier Note Hard stop, turns back, throws a shoulder into the defenseman trying to find the exit pass. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019

Gabriel Fortier Note Outworking his opponents on every shift. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Gabriel Fortier Summary Fortier was all over the ice in this game, highly effective in all three zones, showing hands, speed and determination to make his mark on the game, which he did with a goal and an assist and just general hard-working play. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Jonatan Berggren Note Has been the best forward for the Swedes in this game. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019

Lucas Raymond Note So fast to get to loose pucks, great burst from a standstill. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Lucas Raymond Note Just schooled Tychonick in the corner--turned him, faked him, got around him for loose puck. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Lucas Raymond Summary Less effective in this game than he could have been, which really describes the entire Swedish offense. Still, he won puck battles, displayed speed and quickness and some highly clever passing plays. He's a top talent that was stymied here. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Nikola Pasic Note Uses quickness and hands to work the puck around Lavoie, then turns on the speed through the neutral zone for a clean entry. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019

Nikola Pasic Summary Skating is much improved in a straightline, though his agility still needs work, but it’s a good sign that he is improving. Shows a lot of energy with and without the puck and continues to be a work in progress. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Philip Broberg Note If Broberg can develop his offensive game, he will be an awesome NHL defender. Until then, he'll be a premier shut-down guy who can lead a breakout. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Serron Noel Note He's flying. Long legs get him good pace and power. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019

Thomas Harley Note Harley can skate. Fast, fluid, mobile, uses his feet to position his bodya nd shield pucks to buy an extra second against forecheckers. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/31/2019
Bobby Brink Note I don't like how he moves. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Bobby Brink Note Sloppy, sludgy first steps. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Bobby Brink Note He really needs a skating coach. His feet move, but his body goes nowhere. It's a liability for him even at the U18 level. A defender just closed on him with two strides. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Bobby Brink Note I'm just going to say it: Brink will get destroyed by NHL defenders. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019

Domenick Fensore Note Fensore is an underrated defenseman. 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 Definitely a pass-first player, but I think it’s because he's so damned good at it. 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
Brayden Tracey Note Short strides but he gains speed well. Could become faster and a more powerful skater if he wants it. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Connor Zary Note An opportunistic player. Solid in his own end, then suddenly he's making something happen. Really good wraparound goal to tie the game in the third period. 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 Same shift, and Tomasino accelerated past him with ease, but Andersson caught up to as Tomasino slowed into the offensive zone. 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 Will throw his body around, no doubt. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019

Jamieson Rees Note A loose puck finds him and he's off on a half-breakaway. One move, puts the puck in the pads but draws a penalty. 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 Note Forehand, backhand, forehand saved. That was a great dangle that came to nothing, but offensive moves of the game for him. 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 Turns tight circles. Fantastic edge work. 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 Note Lacks speed up ice. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Sweden (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/27/2019
Samuel Poulin Note Goes hard all the time. 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 Bjornfot is a player who controls the tempo of the game whenever he's on the ice. 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

Aidan De La Gorgendierre Note Great first few steps getting him quickly to loose pucks. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Prince Albert (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/17/2019

Aliaksei Protas Note Good stride mechanics in a straight line giving him good speed up ice. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Prince Albert (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/17/2019
Kirby Dach Note Brilliant goal. Takes the puck at his own blue line, curls left side, dekes a guy blind, head fakes, dekes, lowers his shoulder and cuts to the crease, buries it. Power, finesse, moves, beautiful. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Prince Albert (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/17/2019
Kirby Dach Note Looks like he's taking this game personally. All fire and drive to get the puck in the zone and on net. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Prince Albert (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/17/2019
Kirby Dach Note Taking hits from everyone, but still working hard at both ends, absorbing hits, keeping his head up and managing the game. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Prince Albert (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/17/2019

Ozzy Wiesblatt Note Mostly just floating in the high slot while his team works the perimeter. Went to the top of the crease, took a crosscheck, moved up a bit higher in the slot. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Prince Albert (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/17/2019
Ozzy Wiesblatt Note Decent acceleration. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Prince Albert (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/17/2019

Tristen Robins Note Good mobility, nice release. 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

Harrison Caines Note Showing good wheels on that rush. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Niagara (OHL) Video (With Replay) 3/29/2019
Jake Uberti Note Gets turned around in the offensive zone on the forecheck. Looked disoriented. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Niagara (OHL) Video (With Replay) 3/29/2019
Jason Robertson Note Really lacks the speed he'll need. Just can't close with puck carriers. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Niagara (OHL) Video (With Replay) 3/29/2019
Jason Robertson Note Might be slow, but he sees the game so well, and has the hands to make smart passes with small movements. 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

Mitchell Russell Note Big guy, looks a little slow, but gets good push from a standstill. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Niagara (OHL) Video (With Replay) 3/29/2019

Phillip Tomasino Note Uses his acceleration to catch up and strip the puck in the offensive zone then a quick pass to set up the offense. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Niagara (OHL) Video (With Replay) 3/29/2019
Albert Johansson Note Crafty defensive stick play to fake then tap it into his own corner so he could step around the forechecker and gain a little more time, then make a safe pass behind his own net. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Albert Johansson Note Turned the wrong way and the puck trickled past him and out of the zone. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Albin Grewe Note Big hit in the corner. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Russia (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/28/2019
Albin Grewe Note Forechecking, causing problems in deep. 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

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 is 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 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 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 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

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

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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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, 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 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 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 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 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 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 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
Kaedan 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
Kaedan 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
Kaedan 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
Kaedan 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
Kaedan Korczak Note Good lateral mobility, looks comfortable moving in all directions. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2019 Video (With Replay) 1/23/2019
Kaedan 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 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
Hunter Campbell Note Wrist shot low from the top of the left circle, hard to handle for the goaltender. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Hunter Campbell Note Killing penalties. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019

Hunter Campbell Note Changes direction with the puck, hard stop and goes the other way. That was surprising. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019

Hunter Campbell Summary Good work rate, moves okay with and without the puck but shows just average speed. Shot was okay, but there was little evidence of offensive creativity or scoring ability in this game. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Jaylen Luypen Note Smaller, has good change of pace to get to a higher gear when needed. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019

Jaylen Luypen Note Quick hands, able to get a puck and release a pass in an instant. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Jaylen Luypen Note Swithces to backwards skating in the neutral zone because he was reaching back to collect an puck and he takes a hard hit to his back. He'll get smarter about doing that. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Jaylen Luypen Note Hustles on the backcheck and steals the puck. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019

Jaylen Luypen Summary Smaller player, but plays with energy and is effective at both ends of the ice. Good speed and quickness, and he plays hard with intention, often making an impact on the game during his shifts. Good vision and passing. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Josh Prokop Note Shows some agility to adjust and get across to his coverage on the point after his team turns it over in their defensive zone. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Liam Keeler Note Average to above-average speed, head is up carrying the puck through the neutral zone, puts a puck on net, five hole, from the top of the circle, then follows his shot to try for a rebound attempt, but the netminder clears it. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Liam Keeler Note Gets caught reaching out for a puck and gets planted. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019

Liam Keeler Note Fluffs receiving a pass in the high slot in his own zone, and his lack of response, as an opposing player jumps to the loose puck, was astounding. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Liam Keeler Summary Looked a bit inconsistent, but showed some aspects of quality play. Not a highly skilled player, but a decent skater with good positioning on the ice. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019

Mark Kastelic Note Looks lost some times, just trying to front players instead of playing defense. Low game awareness. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Mark Kastelic Summary Plays a big, physical game, but does not seem to bring a lot skill to the ice, and he seemed to be overaggressive and out of position. He takes up space in front of the net, but lacks offensive skills in general. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Riley Fiddler-Schultz Note Not great acceleration, takes a couple of choppy pumping steps to get going. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019

Vladimir Alistrov Summary Game needs development, but he looks like a player that has a good foundation of skills. Would do well to improve his skating and patience with the puck, but shows good hands and hockey sense. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Yegor Zamula Note Tall. Takes a little hop step to his left, then glides into the slot to monitor the front of the crease. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Yegor Zamula Note Skating technique/mechanics needs work. Wide strides, doesn't get his feet back below him in front, losing power and speed, and it shows. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Yegor Zamula Note Makes a good sharp pass into the neutral zone to get the play moving. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Yegor Zamula Note Has nice moves and edges, shoulder fakes, moves the puck. Better mobility than speed. Good puckhandling and passing. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Yegor Zamula Note Noteworthy that he's not getting much penalty-killing time. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Yegor Zamula Note Good passer. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Yegor Zamula Note Long reach and used it there for a poke check that seemed like it came from ten feet away. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Yegor Zamula Note Now killing penalties, spins to change direction while covering his man instead of making a clean stop. Slower than he needs to be because of it. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Yegor Zamula Note Can really fire a pass when he sees the opportunity. Hard but accurate and generally easy to receive. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Yegor Zamula Note Another nice poke check. His play is smoart, as it needs to be to cover his lack of footspeed. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Yegor Zamula Note Pretty pass through traffic finds Zimmerman in stride for a fast breakout. Same shift, gets the puck at the offensive blue line, pulls the puck around the Edmonton forward, cuts to the high slot then backhands a pass to the left circle. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Yegor Zamula Note Patient and confident with the puck, even under a lot of pressure.Uses his reach and length to keep the puck away from forecheckers until he can find the right outlet pass. Brian Fogarty Calgary vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 1/19/2019
Yegor Zamula Summary His game is predicated on his passing, stickhandling and intelligence. 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
Alex Johnston Note Fights through some sticks to get to the puck and tap it back to the point. Good effort. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Alex Johnston Note Doesn't look dynamic when he's carrying the puck. Very deliberate, looks like he has to concentrate on the puckhandling more than looking for the play. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Alex Johnston Note Hovering around the top of the crease, stick on the ice. Later that shift, his body and stick positioning pays off as the puck comes to him from the right side and its an easy one-touch goal from the top of the crease. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Alex Johnston Note Killing penalties. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Alex Johnston Note Balance looks suspect under contact. Either hie's easily upended, or he's allowing himself to go down trying to draw a call. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Alex Johnston Note Takes a pass, then sharp return to complete the give and go. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018

Alex Johnston Note Skates with his back bent over rather than a deep knee bend. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018

Arthur Kaliyev Note Comes alive when he gets the puck, stutter step, burst of speed, wrap around attempt that doesn't work but came close. Totally different player with the puck. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Arthur Kaliyev Note Same shift, its like getting that chance energized him. Flying around the offensive zone, eventually draws a penalty. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Arthur Kaliyev Note On the powerplay, just not moving his feet to get back when the puck goes the other way and the Soo get numbers and a shorthanded goal. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Arthur Kaliyev Note Right circle on the powerplay, wrister misses the net, then a hard one-time slapshot saved. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Arthur Kaliyev Note Calling for the puck, doesn't get it, throws his hand up, looking disgruntled. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Arthur Kaliyev Note Foot speed is lacking most of the time, and his defensive ambition is limited. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018

Arthur Kaliyev Note Oh, but there he made a nice, high-vision pass. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
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. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Cole MacKay Note Nice first step after the opening faceoff. Bursts off the circle, begins a forecheck. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Cole MacKay Note Looks like above average straight line speed, but not more than that on this first shift. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Cole MacKay Note Constantly moving in all three zones, battling for everything, getting to loose pucks. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018

Cole MacKay Note Snap shot from the right point, again hard and low to the ice. Kick save to the corner, but the shot was a good one. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Cole MacKay Note Good first couple of steps. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Cole MacKay Note Took the wrong route up ice when his defenseman had the puck. MacKay was the head man, but he skated directly away from the puck, giving the puck carrier no passing option. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Cole MacKay Note Great read on the penalty kill, gets his stick out to pick off a pass, then turns it into a partial breakaway. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Cole MacKay Note Up 4-1, blocking shots on the penalty kill with 3:40 left, then a great stick lift that anticipated the pass completely disarmed the attacking player in the slot. Excellect play on the penalty kill. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Jacob LeGuerrier Note Moves well, mobile and active, forwards and back. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018

Jacob LeGuerrier Note Tries to keep a puck in at the offensive blue line, but fumbles the puck and the attacker blows past him to start an odd-man rush. His defense partner was in deep, so a safer play would have been a better choice. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Jacob LeGuerrier Note Hustles, smooth, active stick and good gaps. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018

Jan Jenik Note Kind of a bowlegged, wide stride, but moves okay up ice. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Matthew Strome Note Skating looks improved since I last watched him. Still not fast by any means, but looks more comfortable and balanced. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Navrin Mutter Note Big shoulder hit on the defenseman trying to shoot from the blue line. Lovely and clean. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018

Navrin Mutter Note Lacks top end speed but looks okay on his skates. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Navrin Mutter Summary Interesting player. Size, decent on his feet though he doesn't seem like it, good hands in passing and picking up passes. Drives the net. Hits like a train. Don't know what his ultimate ceiling is yet (middle six?), but I'm curious. Shows good awareness in general. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018
Navrin Mutter Note Super-physical player, strong on his skates, powerful base makes him hard to move. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Hamilton (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/15/2018

Alex Beaucage Note Takes a hard hit on the end boards in order to move the puck up around the corner. Then he's up through the middle of the ice to lead the team into the offensive zone. Hustle. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Alex Beaucage Note Tries to turn the corner against Ryczek, can't get it done. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019

Alex Beaucage Note Like his work behind the offensive zone net, working for pucks, finding options, creating stuff for his team. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Alex Beaucage Note Wins a lot of physical battles on the boards. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Alex Beaucage Summary Steady player with offensive upside who plays hard, particularly down low and behind the nets. Has good speed, is well balanced, but does not show tremedous quickness or agility. A north-south player with good work ethic. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Cole Stewart Note Right side of the right faceoff circle, working hard to get the puck on the end line, feeds it to the slot and McLeod manages to bang it in. Hardworking play by Stewart. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Cole Stewart Note Okay speed, not outstanding. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Jared McIsaac Note McIsaac back on the ice. Grimacing on the bench, though. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
Justin Barron Note Showing off his wheels, flies up through the neutral zone with the puck. Made everyone else on the ice look slow. Brian Fogarty Rouyn-Noranda vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 1/14/2019
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 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 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 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 Nice pass though traffic to the back door. He put that through the legs of a defender and hit the tape. 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 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
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
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 Centering the top PP unit 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

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

Kirby Dach Note Shootout opportunity to show of his hands, and he put the netminder on his face before flipping the puck up into the net. Sick hands. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Kristian Roykas Marthins Note Looks stocky, low and strong on the puck. Comfortable on his skates. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Kristian Roykas Marthins Note Another play where he just muscled through the opposition, kept possession. Brian Fogarty Saskatoon vs Lethbridge (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/6/2018
Kristian Roykas Marthins Note Like his responsible play at his own end of the ice. 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

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

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

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
Michael Vukojevich Note Raymond just played around Vukojevich like he wasn't even there. 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 Takes two steps off the right-wing boards, finds a loose puck off the faceoff, and his shot is off his stick in an instant, into the goalies glove, low right side. Brian Fogarty USA vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2018) Video (With Replay) 8/8/2018

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.

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.

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

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
