Player Notes

 

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

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

Player Name Note Type Note Writer Game Watched Viewing Method Game Date
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson is playing a solid game, picking up two assists. Skating hard and playing smart. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanualsson again getting something started for the Cuda, Laurikainen has just been better today. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Eetu Laurikainen Note Laurikainen not a large goalie but stays big. Positionally doing well, lateral movement a bit choppy, but adequate. Getting the job done. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Eetu Laurikainen Note Laurikainen positionally can’t do anything wrong in this game. He is stopping everything he sees. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Mirco Mueller Note Mueller drove the net with authority and the crashing forwards got three whacks at the puck. Good play by Mueller and smart Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Joakim Ryan Note Poor defensive awareness and players are routinely getting wide on him for dangerous chances. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Summary A very well-rounded game by Emanuelsson who finally seems to have his feet under him in the last dozen games or so. Emanuelsson is learning the nuances that will make his successful in North America. When his call-up happens, he might not come back. Could do with a bit more shooting, as he has a good shot and release. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Summary Overall a decent effort for Goldobin. Continues to force passes to fellow forwards, often extremely low percentage plays. Always going for the home run pass. This often leads to turnovers and hard hits by defending skaters. Watching Goldobin, the talent is evident, but the finer points of the game escape him and he doesn’t seem interested in addressing them and modifying his game to be successful. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Eetu Laurikainen Summary Laurikainen is just another goalie prospect out of Finland, also known as the worlds goalie factory. Plays a positionally solid and quiet game with little wasted movement despite standing only 6’0. Tracked the puck well and exhibited good reflexes when called upon. Only 22, his impressive statistics posted in the WHL and Liiga warrant a careful watching of his development. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Mirco Mueller Summary Mueller was largely invisible for the first two periods before activating in the third. Long-term development is underway, has to play with more authority and his passive play and soft passes and reads are not helping a weak defensive core. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Joakim Ryan Summary In his first professional season, Ryan continues to have issues in the defensive zone. Positionally he has trouble with gaps tight and seems to allow more forwards to cut to the middle than his peers. Has to be considered a long-term project at this point. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/18/2016
Alexander True Note True is a big guy with a good release and a heavy shot. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Mathew Barzal Note Barzal has been the best Canadian player in the tournament. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Mathew Barzal Note Bazal is the 6th skater, can’t believe he was almost left at home. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Anders Bjork Note Bjork has improved his play in each game. Started as a 4th liner and his good play has seen him receive increased ice time. Zachary DeVine Czech Republic vs. USA (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Mackenzie Blackwood Note Blackwood fails to seal the short side, Saarela throws it back and it finds the space on his knee. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
William Boysen Note Boysen makes sure the Russians know he came to play with a nice open ice should check. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Thomas Chabot Note Chabot out on the ice with the game on the line. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Alexander Dergachyov Note Dergachyov’s skating is weak, not much of a stride. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Dylan Strome Note Strome playing like his last game on earth. Love it. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Dylan Strome Note Strome with a great steal. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Sebastian Aho Note Aho is criminally underrated as a part of the top line for the Finns. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Mathias From Note From drives the net at 13:50 of the second period, much like his drive in the first but again individualistic effort. That won’t work in the pro ranks at any level. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Mathias From Note From with a big individual effort and dangles through Provorov. Would be a much better player if he wasn’t such an individual out there and used his talent to bring up teammates. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Mathias From Note From with his 3rd end-to-end rush. I think it is a set play to get the offensive zone face off and frankly it is working. He does not care if it is 1-on-4, he is going at the net and so is the puck. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Alexander Georgiev Note Georgiev is an amazingly agressive goalie, plays outside of his crease the majority of the time. Fantastic movement and is quick set and square to the shooter. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Gustav Forsling Note Forsling more of a shooter for an offensive defenseman. This type of player is often associated with a puck distributor, but Frosling shoots more, but gets it on net so it is not worrisome. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Slovakia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Brandon Hickey Note Brandon Hickey blows a tire on a pivot and allows Kalapudas to come in 2-on-0 and bury it. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Axel Holmstrom Note Holmstrom’s game has been very strong. Skating now average, last 90 seconds takes on two defenders and determined stick handling and tenacity result in a chance. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Slovakia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Adam Huska Note Huska getting very little help, but playing steady as he has all tournament. Looking tired. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Slovakia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Christian Jaros Note Jaros with a jailbreak pass for a great Slovak chance, Soderstrom drags the back leg and puck dribbles wide. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Slovakia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson Note JFK’s feet are moving, throwing a lot of puck into high traffic areas. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Slovakia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Olli Juolevi Note Juolevi has been a solid player but will have to do ever more. Deployed against Strome and making sure he knows he is out there. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Olli Juolevi Note Juolevi walks the puck down the left wing, fakes three Canadians to the ice and over to Kapanen for the shot and Nattinen chips the rebound home. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Kasperi Kapanen Note Kapanen and Hintz both miss the open net after lucky play by McKeown Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Adrian Kempe Note Kempe with great poise as the stick check knocks the puck off his stick, quickly regains and uses that lethal release to beat Huska. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Slovakia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Kaapo Kahkonen Note Kahkonen now in net and on his first save shows how much better his lateral movement is than Vehvilanien. Gets post to post with ease. Deflected shot is fought off, two good saves to start. HUGE reach back save. Kahkonen looking much better in this game. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Patrik Laine Note Laine and Puljujarvi are getting hit early and often. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Patrik Laine Note Laine with a huge cross-ice jailbreak pass to Puljujarvi who cuts in for the shot and Aho cleans up the trash. These guys are so good. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Artur Lauta Note Lauta with a solid goal right off the face off. Dergavchyov gets the puck across for the tying goal. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Thomas Lille Note Lille has had mediocre recovery numerous times in this tournament. Very good reflexes and tracks the puck well. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Thomas Lille Note Russia swarming but Lille holding down the fort. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Jens Looke Note Jens Looke with a nice backhand to Ehn waiting back post. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Slovakia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Mitch Marner Note Marner has woken up. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Auston Matthews Note Matthrews doesn’t look like the same player as he was against CDN and SWE. Something could be wrong, likely sick or hurt early and now rounding into form. Zachary DeVine Czech Republic vs. USA (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Roland McKeown Note McKeown has been very good defensively. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Niko Mikkola Note Niko Mikkola has had two cross-ice passes picked off. On the second and the Stevens, Quenville, Konecny make them pay after the wide Chabot shot. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Markus Jensen Note Markus Jensen with another goal, quick transition by all Dane forwards to protect the net and get going the other way. Artur Lauta allowed Jensen to get open for the goal, blown assignment and the Danes take advantage. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Alex Nedeljkovic Note Nedeljkovic projects very well, quickly gets set, not much wasted movement. Lateral quickness the best in the tournament. Zachary DeVine Czech Republic vs. USA (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Brendan Perlini Note Perlini is having a terrible tournament and this might be his worst game of it. Penalties and dumb play is his hallmark. Never liked his game, like it less now. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Ivan Provorov Note And again in the OT, Provorov has so much skill, simply took over the game at the end to shut down the Danes. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Ivan Provorov Note Provorov with another defensive zone start. Board work is solid and simple, keeping the attacking forwards off the puck and neutralized. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Ivan Provorov Note Provorov’s game is ready for the NHL, physically he can handle or manhandle anyone. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Ivan Provorov Note Provorov’s pass to Lauta, Lauta fans on the shot which is deflected to Kamanev who snaps it home. Hard sequence for Lille. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Jonas Rondbjerg Note Rondbjerg nearly with a breakaway, does a good job shielding the puck for the young man. 2017 draft pick to watch. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Jonas Rondbjerg Note Rondbjerg playing responsibly for a 16 year old. Defensively playing the Danes system and seemingly in position to keep the Russians on the outside. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Dimitri Sergeyev Note Sergeyev and Sharipzyanov get the nod in the offensive zone quite a bit. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Damir Sharipzyanov Note Sergeyev and Sharipzyanov get the nod in the offensive zone quite a bit. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Jiri Smejkal Note Smejkal for the Czech Republic is a gamer. Turned away on a breakway in the 2nd period. Big motor, made a kick save early in the 3rd in a game he’s down by 6 which shows a compete level not dictated by score. He was heavy on faceoffs, a lot to like on this young man. Was not drafted in 2015, back into the pool in 2016 and a player to highlight. Zachary DeVine Czech Republic vs. USA (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Linus Soderstrom Note Soderstrom looking sharp on infrequent chances. Announcers state a .943 SV% for Soderstrom in this tournament. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Slovakia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Yevgeni Svechnikov Note Svechnikov has to be viewed as a disappointment in this tournament. High-end talent and not a single point through 5 games and largely ineffective. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Thomas Olsen Note Olsen knocks in a literal pass from Georgiev. Zachary DeVine Denmark vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Dmytro Timashov Note Timashov always doing something on the ice to get the puck on the Slovak net. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Slovakia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Dmytro Timashov Note Timashov has his way on his shift from 8-7 minutes left inthe 2nd. Fearless with the puck, the space the Slovaks are giving him as well gives Timashov ample time and space to do nearly anything he wants. Timashov has the skill to do it as well. Great possession game on display and a big part of the Swedish effort. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Slovakia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Veini Vehvalainen Note Vehvailanin’s lack of lateral movement exposed on first goal. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Veini Vehvalainen Note Vehvalainen has lost track of the puck twice, one was a goal, other was dangerous. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
Brett Murray Note Murray has a choppy first couple of steps. Gets up to speed well and can keep up with the play but not quick off the draw. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Brett Murray Note Murray is a big kid but not good on his feet, it is holding him back as this game goes on. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Brett Murray Note Murray not showing a lot of refinement or possession skills. Raw player. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Note Cholowski showed good awareness, joining the rush then tracking back to cover the crease as Murray was out playing the puck. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Note Cholowski evades the forecheckers well, both as he comes out and in the corners. Was lined up a few times but sidestepped and got the play up the ice. Cholowski the most impressive defenseman thus far. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Note Cholowski draws a penalty by making his opponent miss a hit and drag him down. First PP of the game. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Note Cholowski with his first intercepted pass at the 13 minute mark of the second. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Note Cholowski fools the crowd, had Botiz beat but it was on the side of the net. Everyone has seen his performance and the “ahs” were earned, even if the puck didn’t go in. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Note Cholowski with a jailbreak pass to 10, Botiz closes the pads. Great pass. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016

Dante Fabbro Note Fabbro didn’t even have to try to catch Murray. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dante Fabbro Note Fabbro plays angles very well defenisvely. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dante Fabbro Note Fabbro’s edge work is good. A right-handed defenseman, his reads have been solid early. Active and not cheating. Hands are advanced for this game. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Colin Grannary Note Grannary with a dirty goal on the third shot. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Colin Grannary Note Grannery has been all over the puck and making chances happen. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Colin Grannary Note Grannery again, causing trouble and creating chances. Hard worker. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Colin Grannary Note Grannery misses Fabbro crusiing in from the point, would have been a glorious chance. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Colin Grannary Note Colin Grannery is the West Player of the Game. Only goal for the side, in the mix constantly. High compete level and V8 motor. Excellent game for the young man. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Tyson Jost Note Jost has quickness in all areas of his game: stick, skates, hands, vision Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Tyson Jost Note Jost had a fast release, comes from all angles. Shoots mid stride, hard tp pick up. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Tyson Jost Note Jost sees things no one else is able to, surprises his own teammates at times. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016

Tyson Jost Note Jost hits the post, then gets on his horse to deflect a centering pass in the defensive zone. Team is feeding Jost hoping he can make it happen. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Brinson Pasichnuk Note Pasichnuk plays with flair and sand, a bit of Joe Hicketts in him. Quick steps and power in those legs. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Brinson Pasichnuk Note Pasichnuk can get moving in a hurry. Quick acceleration, especially when cruising. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Brinson Pasichnuk Note Pasichnuk makes a mistake following Searles around the net and it leads to a goal for the East. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Brinson Pasichnuk Note Pasichnuk looking gassed, watching him suck air, losing some of the edge I liked in the first period. Continually deployed on the right side as a left-handed defenseman. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Michael Botiz Summary Botiz and Point co-MVP’s for the East, allowing 1 goal on 44 shots and being under seige most of the night. Defensive talent was stacked on the West, East didn’t have much to work with but the goalies did very well. Point has issues with rebounds and some chunky movements, but battles hard. Drops his glove, a bit of Potvin glove position. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Brett Murray Summary While only one game, Murray did not help himself. Skating was a major red flag and he was always caught by the speedy West defenders. Played smaller than his 6’4, 196-pound frame would suggest. A long-term project, there are a number of holes that would need to be addressed. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dennis Cholowski Summary Easily the best player in the game in my viewing. Cholowski displayed all tools you would want from a top defenseman. Nothing was lacking in his game at all tonight, showed exceptional defensive zone awareness and positioning, possessed the puck well in the neutral zone and made many heady plays and nearly had a goal whilst playing opposite Fabbro. Needs to add muscle badly, but high hockey IQ kept him from taking any big hits and was always calm, nothing seemed to rattle him. Set to play for St. Cloud State in 2017. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Colton Point Summary Botiz and Point co-MVP’s for the East, allowing 1 goal on 44 shots and being under seige most of the night. Defensive talent was stacked on the West, East didn’t have much to work with but the goalies did very well. Point has issues with rebounds and some chunky movements, but battles hard. Drops his glove, a bit of Potvin glove position. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Dante Fabbro Summary Excellent two-way defender with skills and hands but also an understanding of his defensive responsibilities. Remained poised under forecheck pressure. Talented with the puck and excellent puck handling skills, but was too cute with the puck at times. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Colin Grannary Summary Deserving of the Player of the Game Award, Grannary was a fine mix of skill, tenacity, speed, and desire. Noticed on the ice nearly every shift, created scoring chances offensively for himself and teammates. Needs some help defensively, but forechecking was smart and effective. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Tyson Jost Summary Electric player with the puck on his stick. Release is like lightning and shoots from all angles with high velocity. Showed good grit, often cutting to high-percentage areas before unleashing his shot. Skating is very good as well, with quickness that matches his hands. Held off the scoreboard, but had a pair of posts. Tried to get others involved, but didn’t seem to mesh with his line mates. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Brinson Pasichnuk Summary Impressive game for the 2017 University of Vermont recruit. Played well overall, but really shone with his constant pushing of the attack and ability to use speed to separate from forecheckers or to catch them. Showed good vision and played much bigger than his listed 6’0 height. Also impressed with his ability to play well on the right side as a left shot. Needs refinement but a number of good tools in the tool box. Could be a late round gem for someone. Zachary DeVine CJHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/26/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Abramov showing some quick and skilled hands behind the net. Defenders will rub him into the boards and he still seems to exit with the puck. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Abramov doing it again, buzzing around the offensive zone and dishes to Ronning for a scoring chance. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Starting to think that it is physically impossible to knock Abramov off the puck. Everyone is trying, and he keeps coming away with the biscuit. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Abramov creating on nearly every play. Both Ronning and Steele get chances with Abramov distributing the puck. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Will Bitten Note Bitten is very fast in a straight line. Quick acceleration. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016

Jakob Chychrun Note Chychrun ties up two forwards near the crease and bats the puck back into the corner. Elite. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016

Sean Day Note Sean Day makes a subtle play with a quick stick check on Nylander, end of offensive play. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016

Sean Day Note Day carries through the neutral zone and passes to Kyrou who whips a cross ice pass to Brown who ties the game. All three players with awesome plays on that goal. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Sean Day Note Day has made a number of plays on the puck with his feet. Kicking the puck up to his stick, or having an attacker tied up and kicking the puck out of danger. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Alex DeBrincat Note Had three options on the powerplay, and he chose the worst possible play available to him Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Nice hit to win a puck, then turns and fires a tricky shot on net. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Impressive shift in the offensive zone.

Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Again just driving the play around him. Draws a penalty. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Dubois splits the defense, Fitzpatrick stays with him for the save. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Dubois and Laberge both with lackadaisical defensive coverage on that play. For all the offense they are creating, they are giving up some chances as well. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Dubois intercepts Abramov’s pass, drives the net, dishes a behind-the-back pass to Laberge, who passes back to Dubois for a goal. Wow. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Samuel Girard Note Trying to make something happen, but he seems to be playing a little past his limits and it's making him sloppy Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Olli Juolevi Note Makes a mistake with a flubbed pass at the offensive zone blue line, but quickly moves back into position and breaks up the oncoming rush. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Olli Juolevi Note Juolevi toe drags the puck right at the blue line to evade a forward rushing at him, slides the puck over the Hajek for a shot on goal. Confident play. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jack Kopacka Note Kopacka with a nice drop-pass to Hajek for a chance on net. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jack Kopacka Note Kopacka has good wheels. A few times I have noticed his skating in the 1st period. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jack Kopacka Note Kopacka again with a nice play, having a solid first period. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jordan Kyrou Note Kyrou with a nice assist on the Ronning goal. Excellent pass. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jordan Kyrou Note Jordan Kyrou having a good first period. Active in all zone and making some heady passes. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jordan Kyrou Note Day carries through the neutral zone and passes to Kyrou who whips a cross ice pass to Brown who ties the game. All three players with awesome plays on that goal. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pascal Laberge Note Quick release results in his second goal, but Dubois made the play with his initial assault on the net Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Pascal Laberge Note Laberge has been noticeable early in the game. Skating is very good, changes speeds easily. Does need to add some meat. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pascal Laberge Note Laberge uses DeBrincat as a prop, gets around him and shoots the hell out of the puck ripping a shot past Sawchenko. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pascal Laberge Note Labarge from Dubois on the PP. Great shot by Laberge Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pascal Laberge Note Dubois and Laberge both with lackadaisical defensive coverage on that play. For all the offense they are creating, they are giving up some chances as well. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Logan Brown Note Logan Brown playing hard, competing hard on each play. Consistency from shift to shift I have not seen from him often this year. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Logan Brown Note Logan Brown has multiple burrs under his saddle this game. Skating hard, corner work is very good with his hands and huge frame. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Logan Brown Note Day carries through the neutral zone and passes to Kyrou who whips a cross ice pass to Brown who ties the game. All three players with awesome plays on that goal. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Michael McLeod Note Blows an early two-on-one by waiting too long to do anything and simply ran out of space and time Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Michael McLeod Note Flashes his elite speed to get to the slot, but the shot was not dangerous. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Michael McLeod Note Logan Stanley pinches in a poor choice and Michael McLeod gets a chance on Carter Hart. Hart out-waits McLeod and nothing comes of it. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Michael McLeod Note McLeod is blazing fast. Elite speed. One wonders if he is too fast, as he doesn’t seem to be able to generate anything with it as far as offense. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Michael McLeod Note McLeod picks Jake Bean of the puck and get the puck to the net. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Markus Niemelainen Note Heavy, heavy wrister from the blue line, but it takes a long time for him to release it Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Markus Niemelainen Note Niemelainen not impressive. Isn’t making good defensive zone plays. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Markus Niemelainen Note Niemelainen makes a decent play then follows it up with a number of head scratchers. Does not seem to be processing the game at its current speed. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Ty Ronning Note Shows good hands and agility to net the first goal. Great balance on one foot to pivot and gain puck control at the top of the crease. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Ty Ronning Note Ronning in front of the net shots on goal, Hart can’t control the rebound, puck comes back to Ronning who buries it. Good hardworking goal. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Ty Ronning Note Ronning not afraid of high traffic areas despite his size. Good complete level. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Ty Ronning Note Ronning dishes the puck to Chychrun who blasts it off the iron. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Ty Ronning Note Ronning’s skating is high level. Shifty at speed, changes directions easily, acceleration, good edges. Love it. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Mikhail Sergachev Note Sergachev playing the right side as a left-handed defenseman. Still highly effective, calm and able to whip the puck around in the offensive zone on the off-wing. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Mikhail Sergachev Note Sergachev catches McLeod with his head down a bit, breaks up the play with a solid check. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Logan Stanley Note Stanley with a poor choice to step up on the fleet-footed Michael McLeod. Needs to recognize opposition. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Logan Stanley Note Logan Stanley need to work on his skating. Not fast nor quick. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Logan Stanley Note Logan Stanley out of position on the PP, puck is able to be cleared easily. Later in the shift crosschecks Logan Brown for a dumb penalty. Rough start for the towering defenseman. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Matthew Tkachuk Note Showed it all tonight. Fast, nasty, talented, big. He is his father's son. Power forward in the making with everything you need in a forward. Top pick worthy on every front. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Vitalii Abramov Summary Abramov is a small, left-handed right winger with a motor in the offensive zone that is impressive to watch. The 5’9 frame that should have a hard time, seems to have checks and physical plays simply not affect him and more often than not, escapes with the puck. Defensively not as interested, but his skating and shifty edge work suggest this area can be improved upon. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Alexander Nylander Summary Not Nylander's best game, by far. He looked like he was fighting the puck all night, and lost several opportunities as the puck skipped, rolled or bounced away from him. A game he'll want to forget, but the skill is all there. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Will Bitten Summary Bitten played hard and fast all night long. While not registering on the scoreboard, his efforts, complete level and high-end motor showed well. Did not take a shift off and worked hard. Needs to add muscle to his frame for his game to be more effective. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jakob Chychrun Summary At times Chychrun was the best player on the ice, controlling the tempo in his own end and making plays in all three zones. His game went a long way to cemented his place as the top defenseman in the draft. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Jakob Chychrun Summary A subtle, but effective game for Chychrun, most expected him to dominate but he simply played well. His game is a two-way style and that was certainly on display. Offensive ceiling isn’t as a high as some others, but the floor is much higher as well. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Sean Day Summary Played like a first-round pick for most of the game, showing off his skating and puck handling abilities, but mental lapses are still his biggest issue. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Sean Day Summary Sean Day is a player I love to watch but is an absolute enigma to peg as a prospect. His skating and vision are excellent but some shifts he simply seemed content to take his turn and not contribute to the effort on the ice. He is the very definition of a boom/bust prospect. He will either sort out his head or he won’t. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Alex DeBrincat Summary DeBrincat has three whacks at the puck on a shift and nothing to show for it. Whatever he is doing in Erie never shows up when I watch. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Summary Dubois commanded this game from his first shift on the ice. Tenacious, fluid, always making something happen. Showed off his skills several times including a sick deke that left Sean Day spellbound. Dubois was seventh on my draft list coming into this game, and may challenge Nylander for fifth overall. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Summary An amazing game from the left winger, finishing with 1G, 2A and a threat all night. Vision is excellent. A player that seemingly does everything very well, and it’s hard to pin-point a glaring weakness. He is moving up many draft boards and it is well deserved. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Samuel Girard Summary Girard showed off a lot of potential with his quickness, ability to make quick reads and deliver the puck, but he looked like a player that needs time to polish his impressive skills. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Libor Hajek Summary Hajek’s defensive game is excellent. Not much on the offensive side, but a good pairing for some of the offensively-minded rearguards. Hard for the defensively-minded defenseman to be recognized but Hajek knows what his game is and plays within it. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Olli Juolevi Summary So good in transition, and looked confident in the defensive zone. Puck skills are advanced and he showed why he is likely the best offensive defenseman in the class. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Olli Juolevi Summary Playing for the powerhouse London Knights and scoring nine points as the top defenseman for the gold medal winning Finns, there isn’t much left to wonder about the merits of Juolevi’s game. Well rounded, excellent skater and deft touch with the puck. Vision in both ends is high-end. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jack Kopacka Summary Solid skating ability and a number of smart, low-risk plays made. Simple game, but contributed well to his line. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Jordan Kyrou Summary Kyrou had the primary assists on both goals for Team Cherry. His strong skating was a handful for Team Orr defenders and exhibited good vision as well. Utilized his teammates well in all zones, which has not always been the case with him. Strong three-zone game from Kyrou overall. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Pascal Laberge Summary Simply the most dangerous man on the ice all night, Laberge lifted his stock considerably with an instant chemistry with Pierre-Luc Dubois. Laberge flashed a quick release and poise with the puck. Defensively work is needed, as Laberge was turned around a few times and was not marking his man well coming back. Defense can be taught. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Logan Brown Summary Brown is a player I have been critical of due to maddening, inconsistent efforts during periods that would extend into entire games. The BMO game showed what this talented, pro-sized winger can do when he commits to a 60-minute effort. Skating, hands, size, speed and shot, there is a lot to like about the tools he possesses. However, the level of commitment must match tonight's effort if he is to maximize his talent. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Michael McLeod Summary All of McLeod's game was on display tonight, superb skating and work ethic, and his lack of top-level finishing skills. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Michael McLeod Summary Elite skating, speed, and edge work will make McLeod dangerous each time he hops over the boards. Possibly the fastest skater in the draft, he seems to be too fast for his own good. The brain is not processing the game as the speed his feet will take him. Offensively, not a huge threat, but capable. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Markus Niemelainen Summary Big shot that requires a lot of time to wind up. Not the best performance from him tonight as at times he looked like the speed of the game was a bit overwhelming for him. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Markus Niemelainen Summary The one player I thought who had a bad game overall. Defensively lost, the smooth skating defenseman was exposed on a number of plays. It is his first year in North America, but more has to have been expected of him. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Ty Ronning Summary Feet were moving constantly and he caused trouble all night long by creating havoc in the neutral and offensive zones. Hands kept up with his play, too, and could have had another goal or two. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Ty Ronning Summary A late substitution for his injured teammate, Ronning was the lowest rated prospect at the game but seized the opportunity and certainly played like he belonged the whole time. Skating with Steele and Abramov, his line was the most dangerous for Team Cherry all night long. His skating was exceptional and played with edge and drive. His goal was on his own rebound, staying in the traffic areas even though not the biggest player on the ice by any stretch. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Mikhail Sergachev Summary Sergachev played his Windsor game to a T: rock solid defensively, possessing a hard, heavy shot from the point, physically committed to the game and controlling play from the back end. A live viewing of Sergachev was a treat, there is a lot he does that you have to watch him in person. Easily a top 15 pick for me. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Logan Stanley Summary Stanley had a rough game, the small and shifty players on the ice didn’t have much trouble with him. Foot speed is an issue for Stanley. He needs to work on his agility and acceleration. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Live 1/28/2016
Matthew Tkachuk Summary The scoresheet does not reflect the impacts that Tkachuk made on the ice tonight. At times it seemed like he was controlling the game with sheer willpower, and at others just dazzled with his puck skills. On paper, the best scoring potential in this draft class. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Video (With Replay) 1/28/2016
Kieffer Bellows Note Bellows plays with a lot of emotion and heart. Talent to go with grit and compete level. Love his play in the first viewing. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Kieffer Bellows Note Bellows races back after Krys fumbles puck on the right side. Hard, powerful strides Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Kieffer Bellows Note Bellows takes another penalty. Not a very smart one. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Clayton Keller Note Bellows backhands puck and the goalie saves it, but Bellows sees the puck on top of the goalie's pads and hits the pad to knock the puck in. Good awareness. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Clayton Keller Note Keller accelerates well, quick first steps. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Clayton Keller Note Keller dances around at the blue line and gets the puck to the winger. Quick hands and feet on that play Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Clayton Keller Note Keller drops to Bellows, Bellows shoots and Joey Anderson cleans up the rebound on the sharp angle. “Law Firm” line strikes again. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Clayton Keller Note Keller fearlessly holds the puck in and gets the puck to Bellows for a good shot, GB defenseman with a perfect screen Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Clayton Keller Note Keller loses some key defensive draws late, played well overall. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Clayton Keller Note Keller winning a lot of draws. All stick skills are top notch Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Chad Krys Note Krys defensively is an adventure. Hard time staying on his skates, not effective in his own zone, often out muscled and out competed for ice. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Chad Krys Note Krys gets another turnover that leads to a breakaway, Woll saves the bacon. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Chad Krys Note Krys is danced around again as he makes an ill-advised play for the puck at his blue line. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Ryan Lindgren Note Lindgren doesn’t get turned around in time, poor decision. Joey Maroni with the goal. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Kieffer Bellows Summary Keiffer Bellows is the USHL version of Matt Tkachuk. He is in the traffic areas, quick hands, decent skating, but just a hard nose that is always pointed at the net. Good but not great skater. Has the intangibles of a power forward. Motor was solid and compete level was notable as well. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Clayton Keller Summary Keller was the straw the stirred the NTDP drink all night long. Keller is able to see the ice and impact his teammates with his vision and hockey sense. Skating is quick and shifty, allowing him to change angles and distribute the puck. Quick release on his shot as well. Size will be a question mark at 5’10 and 168 pounds, but has the vision and shiftiness where he could compete with more muscle and same size. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Chad Krys Summary Continue to have questions about defensive awareness of Krys. Not seeing a lot of inspired offensive skills that an undersized defensive prospect will need to translate to higher levels. More viewings are needed to really see the defensive side. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Ryan Lindgren Summary Lindgren was solid throughout the game. Had a few mistakes defensively but was aware of his responsibility and was in position for the most part. Tools are there at a decent level, as well as serviceable size. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Joseph Woll Summary Woll tracks the puck well and moves laterally very well. Squares up quickly. Woll is very economical in his movement. Zachary DeVine Green Bay vs NTDPU18 (USHL) Stream 1/30/2016
Colin White Note White drives the net and gets a good lick on Samsanov, who was shaken up a bit earlier. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Sebastian Aho Note Swedes are marking the Aho line playing man defense on them and some of the chippy stuff to let Laine, Aho, and Puljujarvi know it will be a long night. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Gustav Forsling Note Frosling hasn’t been the player I thought as he was supposedly the skill set Oliver Kylington would have brought to the team. Has a superior, offensive defensemen skill set, but Kylington has a stronger possession game to get the puck actually up the ice. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson Note JFK mixing it up in all zones, working his butt off this tournament and this game in particular. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Olli Juolevi Note Juolevi is playing amazing well tonight. Defensively completely alert and drawing heavy minutes in the defensive zone starts. PK time against the Swedes is as hard as it gets. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Kasperi Kapanen Note Kapanen caught looking at the puck and Timashov whips a 60-foot pass across the crease to Aspaerson for the goal. Good pass and vision. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Yegor Korshkov Note Korshkov has both goals I think, both have been ugly scrums in front of the net. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Patrik Laine Note Laine is a good skater, on the level of Puljujarvi. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Sonny Milano Note Milano flying in the first period. Another chance by his line in the last minute of the first Zachary DeVine USA vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Sonny Milano Note Milano still awesome, Bjork fans on centering pass but Dvorak was driving the back post. USA goal Zachary DeVine USA vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Alex Nedeljkovic Note Neds is undersized but reflexes and recovery are top notch. and a CALF SAVE!? wow. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Ivan Provorov Note Provorov and Kamanev driving the RUS PP bus. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Mikko Rantanen Note Rantanen is waking up. Dishes the puck from behind the net again to Kalapudas and Rantanen gets into a perfect screen for Kalapudas who snaps the puck past Soderstrom. Rantanen now with a goal and and assist Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Mikko Rantanen Note Rantanen with a pass to Roppe Hintz to tie the game. Good to see Rantanen create something and get just his third point of the tournament. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Aleksi Saarela Note Saarela goes crashing into England on the forecheck who has to take a penalty to keep him at bay. Another good game by Saarela Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Aleksi Saarela Note Saarela has a good complete level. Goes into corners, does a lot of the dirty work Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Aleksi Saarela Note Saarela is flying early and the best chances for the Finns coming from his stick. Draws a penalty to get the big line on the nice and joins them on PP1 Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Vili Saarijarvi Note Saarijavi needs to close the gap on attacking forwards, giving too much space to enter the zone with a dangerous Swedish team. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Vili Saarijarvi Note Saarijavi is a good skater, offensive defenseman small in stature but talented. 5’9 165 pounds played last 2 years in North America (USHL and now OHL) Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Ilya Samsonov Note Samsonov overplays the puck laterally and is constantly sliding out of position instead of coming out at the shooter. Its very odd to see. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Linus Soderstrom Note Soderstrom looking very stong early. Movement is crisp and seeing the puck well. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Dmytro Timashov Note Timashov able to go toe to toe with Puljujaruvi in the possession game at 7:45 of the 2nd. Impressive ability to hold off the bigger man with more reach and leverage. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Dmytro Timashov Note Timashov has some of the of best possession skills in the tournament. Zachary DeVine Sweden vs. Finland (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Matthew Tkachuk Note Supposed to be talented and skilled and it isn’t shown here, looks oafish in this game Zachary DeVine USA vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Zach Werenski Note Werenski might be hurt. Not skating well, not pivoting, lack of urgency with the USA down by a goal and 16 minutes left. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Russia (WJC 2016) Stream 1/4/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin with only three shifts in the third period. If your coach in the AHL doesn’t trust you when you are trailing in a one-goal game, not sure if that is a good sign. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin not put out on the PP, down by 1 goal, last 2 minutes of play. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin with the game winner. Finally out for a shift and ends it in Overtime with a good shot. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin and Tierney matched up. First shift Tierney nearly centers a pass to Goldobin in the slot. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin centers the puck to a Heat forward and the ensuing scramble gets the puck poked behind Stalock Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Nikita Jevpalovs Note Jevpalovs missed chance on the 2-on-1 at 15 minutes. Needs to get the puck across or shoot. Inexcusable to lose it like that on a clumsy touch. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Morgan Klimchuk Note Klimchuk knocks home a rebound to make it 1-0, just waiting in the dirty areas, exactly what he needs to go. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington back out, drawing some heavy offensive zone minutes. Nice two-line cross ice pass to break #48 in on net with a chance. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington trys to bank the puck up the boards and not get hit but it leads to a turn over to Lerg who centers to McCarthy. Bad play by Kylington. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Julius Bergman Summary Bergman with another assist, stick is much more active than in the last few viewings. Moving his feet more in the defensive zone. Needs more of this to contend for a NHL roster spot. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Summary Goldobin is an enigma. Less than a handful of shifts in the third period and on the bench when the game is on the line in the final minutes. Finally gets a shift in the overtime and buries it on a great shot. Goldobin has been playing better with Chris Tierney sent down, but a player of his talent and skills has to be able to create on his own as well, not sulk and play a half-assed game. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Nikita Jevpalovs Summary A very invisible game for Jevpalovs. Had one golden chance and muffed it. Offense isn’t translating of late, a sign to watch. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Morgan Klimchuk Summary Klimchuk needs to be a bit more greedy with the puck, seems to defer the shot when a line mate is beavering his stick to the ice. Needs to read the ice and make the best play and not just quiet a teammate. Allow the skills to shine! Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Oliver Kylington Summary A quiet but effective game from Kylington tonight. Heavy minutes with some offensive zone sheltering. Still like his play, but the weight room better be his home this summer. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/6/2016
Mason Appleton Note Appleton pushes the offensive zone face-off into the corner, MSU gets possession and Appleton floats to the off-side and one-times it in. Impressive shift. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Mason Appleton Note Appleton again contributing to the MSU goal, protects the puck in the corner against two Wolverine defenders, pass to the point. powerplay goal is the result and it started with Appleton. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Mason Appleton Note Appleton working the point on the PP, distributing the puck well. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016

JT Compher Note Compher walks in on the off-wing and MSU drops early. Great shot and shot selection by Compher Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
JT Compher Note Compher with a sick pass through the skates of the MSU defender exactly on the tape of Connor who buries it. Compher continues to feed Connor’s hot hand. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
JT Compher Note Compher again on the PP to Connor. Sees the ice very well. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
JT Compher Note Second goal for Compher, knocks in rebound on Connor’s shot. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Kyle Connor Note Conner able to handle the puck effectively at very high speed. Fluidity in his hips and edge work allow impressive and elusive moves. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Kyle Connor Note Connor with another goal. Release is so quick. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Kyle Connor Note Connor changes angles with the puck quickly. Fast hands and excellent edge work. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Kyle Connor Note Connor with fantastic vision and selfless play to get a pass through three defenders to Motte. Dominating performance by that line. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Kyle Connor Note Connor with a wicked release and a lot of power behind it as well. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Zach Osburn Note Osburn with a powerplay goal lazer. Fifth of the season for the Frosh. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Zach Osburn Note Osburn overcommits to the attacking MU player, allows Werenski to get a clean look on goal which results in a goal. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Zach Osburn Note Osburn keeps his feet moving and looking for opportunities to support the play in the offensive zone. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Zach Osburn Note Osburn can start running around in the defensive zone. Better reads in defensive zone are needed Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Zach Osburn Note Osburn was impressive offensively and not a liability in his own end. Constantly moving around the ice, keeping his feet moving towards soft areas in the offensive zone and using good skating and angles to get get back to his defensive assignment. Undersized at 5’10 but was able to deal with the larger, heavier Wolverine skaters. Passed over in 2015, might be a dark horse to take a late-round flier on. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Zach Werenski Note Werenski often takes his time patiently waiting for a lane to open to get the puck on net. Not something that always shows on a stat sheet but smart plays. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Zach Werenski Note Werenski activates and snaps a hell of a shot home. Doing work in all three zones. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Mason Appleton Summary Appleton stood out as the player who simply worked hard on every shift despite the score. High complete level, solid motor that kept going all night, he was trusted as a Freshman to man the right point on the power play. Appleton finished the night with a goal, an assist and five shots. MSU is having a rough season, but the Jets 6th-round pick is tied for the team lead in points. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
JT Compher Summary A great game for the senior center with five points in the contest including two goals. Compher and his line mates Kyle Connor and Tyler Motte were not often doing much defensively since they were constantly attacking the MSU net. Had a number of plays that displayed excellent vision and awareness in the offensive zone. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Kyle Connor Summary Connor is currently tearing up the Big 10 and having an excellent season. Matching his line mate JT Compher with two goals and three assists, Conner landed five shots on net. Creative and dangerous throughout the game, the offensive capability of Connor cannot be overstated, averaging to date 1.7 points per game as a 19 year old. Needs to add muscle, but at 6’1 Connor has the frame needed in the professional ranks, where he will be soon. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Alex DeBrincat Summary DeBrincat continued to make a case for being both a first-round draft pick and a third-round draft pick. His offensive skills are excellent, but he does not seem to engage in the game enough, and the hockey sense is questionable. At his size, he must improve in both of those areas or he will remain the biggest risk/reward player in the 2016 class. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Stream 1/8/2016
Pascal Laberge Summary Capitalized on his linemate Dubois's disruptions all night by showing off his exceptional wrist shot and ability to make plays in traffic at the net. Once he builds some size onto his frame, could become a dangerous top-six winger. Zachary DeVine CHL Top Prospects Game 2016 Stream 1/8/2016
Cristoval Nieves Summary Nieves with assists on back to back goals. One on the PP to start the pass sequence, second was a nice backhand saucer. Exhibiting good vision and effective skating with an odd stride. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Zach Werenski Summary Werenski’s calmness in all situations is exceptional. No panic in his game, knows his assignments, thinks and sees game at a high level. Werenski takes very long shifts. His effectiveness is muted due to the time he gets, he must moderate his energy expenditure. If he was playing NHL-length shifts, his numbers would likely be more impressive. Zachary DeVine Michigan vs Michigan State (NCAA) Stream 1/8/2016
Julius Bergman Note Mueller and Bergman deployed together for the first time that I have noticed this year. They looked good together! Would like to see more of that. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Julius Bergman Note Bergman showing some sand in this game. Needs a bit more weight to back it up, but I like the add to the toolbox. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Julius Bergman Note Bergman saves a goal, effectively tying up the attacking forward Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016

Chris Bigras Note Bigras good positioning and tight gaps. Left shot. Okay size, but uses it well. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Chris Bigras Note Bigras tries on the blueline and 2-on-1 results: Goldobin passes over Haley's stick, no shot. Later in the shift, hooks and gets caught. Tough shift. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Chris Bigras Note Bigas has very good crossovers and moves laterally exceptionally well, gets over to his man immediately. Big skill he uses for his solid gap control. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Chris Bigras Note Broken play. A scrum at the SA bench, leads to a 3-on-1 with Bergman racing back after standing up for teammates. Bigras with a great onetimer to beat Grosnick knee-high glove side. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin with an amazing sequence. Shoots, gets his own rebound, circles the net and roofs it over a well-positioned Hill from six feet. A high-skill play, the first I have seen live from him and it was worth the wait. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikita Jevpalovs Note Jevpalovs good work in the drives the net, havoc and whacking as 40 curls and gets the puck to the net. Haley knocks it in. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikita Zadorov Note Zadorov with back-to-back defensive zone starts, then is forechecking? Skating is fluid and excellent. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikita Zadorov Note Blown coverage and lackadaisical play by Zadorov to not rotate over and allows Lerg to break down the left wing and score. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikita Zadorov Note Zadorov loses Goodrow in the front and nearly a goal. Defensive coverage, positioning and overall play in the backend has been below par. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikita Zadorov Note Zadorov with good confidence carrying the puck out, stickhandling and overall stick work is above average Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikita Zadorov Note Zadorov has had to recover a number of times due to poor positioning. Not creating or causing havoc, just perpetually out of position. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikita Zadorov Note Another instance of good stickhandling by Zadorov. Not a fan of his game thus far, but his ability with the lumber cannot be questioned. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikita Zadorov Note Zadorov allows Goodrow and Emanuelsson to skate around him Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Julius Bergman Summary Bergman continues to develop. Tonight's game showed what he can do when properly prepared and his head is in the right place and his feet moving. Needs to consistently bring that, as the talent is there, now the will and work needs to be added every night. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Chris Bigras Summary Bigras has continued to develop his solid, two-way defensive play. Not one to shy away from responsibility on either end of the rink, he displays defensive acumen as well as offensive capability. Showed a rounded, well-polished game that is nearly ready for the show. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikita Jevpalovs Summary Jevplovs needs to read the offensive play a bit better and get into the soft parts of the slot. He works hard, but the lack of offensive contributions is a concern. Might be looking at a third-line ceiling for him if he can’t bring a more consistent offensive presence. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Nikita Zadorov Summary Zadorov might not know he is a defenseman. Skating and stickhandling is excellent and his vision is above average, as well. Zadorov however exhibited poor defensive play by every possible measurement. Lack of positioning, compete, lazy stick (except when he has the puck himself). He is highly effective in carrying the puck out of his zone, but will not be in the NHL playing like he did in this game. Zachary DeVine San Antonio vs San Jose (AHL) Live 1/9/2016
Mantas Armalis Note Armalis with two tough saves early. Lots of traffic for the big goalie to see around. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016
Rourke Chartier Note Chartier doing work behind the net. Handles himself well with the rough stuff and a turnover turns to a dangerous chance. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016
Jon Gillies Note Gillies economy of movement in the crease is impressive. Not much opens up, keeps it together while tracking the puck, doesn’t overreact to plays. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016
Tim Heed Note Heed with a good read to step into the forwards path to eliminate him from the play. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016
Tim Heed Note Heed showing intelligence as he lets the puck by him then acts as a screen for the attacking forward. Pucks neatly exits zone. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016
Jujhar Khaira Note Khaira with a dish at speed to his winger for a good chance. Owned the center of the ice and drew in the defenders. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016
Mirco Mueller Note Mueller with a good read and chip up to the forward to clear the zone on the PK Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016
Danny O’Regan Note O’Regan’s hard play draws a penalty. Not big but works the dirty areas well Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 10/15/2016

Luke Kunin Note Kunin with a poor pass that looked like he just lost concentration for a second Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016

David Cotton Summary Cotton is a player who is easily overlooked, but then makes a quality play. Plays a quiet game, but has good all-around skill set. Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
JD Dudek Summary Skating is the key here, with the hope that the rest of the tools develop into a quality player. If not, he'll be a career AHLer. Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Trent Frederic Summary Intriguing combinaion of size and skill with a solid foundation and strength in his skates. A project to be sure, but with good upside if he pans out. Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Luke Kunin Summary Kunin is a player with all of the skills and talent to be a great player, expect he seems to lack that spark that sets the special players apart from the rest. Need to keep watching him to see if it was just a choppy game keeping him from finding a rhythm. Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Ryan Fitzgerald Summary High-end puck skills allow him to stickhandle through traffic and a sharp release that him a dangerous shot from anywhere in the offensive zone. Above average on his feet, sees the ice well. Middle-six NHLer or better in the making. Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Max Zimmer Summary Good player, but I saw nothing special from him. Moves well, but looks like a bottom-six player at best Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016

Joe Wegwerth Note Leaden feet really limits his potential Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016

Great quickness and edgework, smart soft hands and excellent vision that allowed him to complete plays with ease. Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016
Cam Morrison Summary Strong player who likes to take up space in front of the net. When he gets the puck in the offensive zone, he drives hard to the net and shows good hands to get hard shots and regularly forces saves. His lack of vision limits his threat with the puck however, because defenders can cheat to him without worrying as much about him making a hard-to-find pass. Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016
Brinson Pasichnuk Summary Hockey sense seems lacking and his skating needs work. He seems to have good effort and abilities, and may improve over time, but right now I don't see a lot of NHLer in him. Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016
Andrew Peeke Summary Looked sloppy and out of sorts, and made little impact in this game that helped his team Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016
Martin Frk Summary Big motor, big hits, big mouth. Frk was an involved participant in all facets of the game. Mixing it up, physically imposing, willing to pay the price in the corners and in front of the net. Only one shot on the night but was still a player that you noticed because of his inspired play. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Grand Rapids (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/11/2015
Anthony Mantha Summary Rode shotgun much of the night, but if you saw him in the QMJHL, you saw him in this game. Great shot, decent vision and completely dependent on others to get him the puck where he can deploy that wicked shot of his. Mantha will shoot from anywhere, and the first goal by the Griffins resulted from Mantha's hard, reckless shot from above the right circle that was tipped in, rewarding him with an assist. Defense is improving, with a good active stick and fast transition game. Still needs some seasoning in the AHL, but the tools are all there and he could be a great winger alongside fellow Detroit prospect Dylan Larkin. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Grand Rapids (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/11/2015
Xavier Ouellet Summary A well-rounded game by the French defenseman. Ouellet picked up an assist after intercepting a clearing attempt and firing a quick cross-ice pass that lead to the Griffins third goal. Played off the attacking player a number of times, gap control needs fine tuning but very fixable. Slightly undersized for a defenseman, plays hard and heavy and made several good, physical plays. Currently viewed as a third or fourth defenseman at the NHL level with some offensive capability. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Grand Rapids (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/11/2015
Mike Reilly Summary Worked hard all game and his vision was on display. Made many high-skill plays with the puck, and was the only Iowa defenseman trying to drive possession. Trying to do too much at his own blue line led to Reilly being stripped of the puck and a 4-on-4 goal for the Griffins. Even after this mistake, Reilly remained calm throughout the game while carrying the puck and made intelligent use of defensive partners to move the puck up ice.

Alexander Nylander Note Good motor on display by Nylander Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015

Michael McLeod Note Day, McLeod, Bastien deployed on a 5-on-3 and are highly disruptive and stay out until it’s back to full strength. McLeod with a big hit to end the shift. Enjoying his high energy. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015
Michael McLeod Note McLeod back checks hard to help breakup a play. an impressive 3-zone effort by the young man Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015

Alexander Nylander Summary Nylander is very confident with the puck, has the skills to mostly get it deep under possession at this level. Two assists but didn’t do much on the defensive side. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015
Sean Day Summary Likely one of the most polarizing players, the skill is there, the skating is there but the “coach killer” traits that I have heard about showed up as well. Played much like a Brent Burns type player, moving around the ice like a “rover”. Still, I’d rather tame a tiger on defense. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015
Logan Brown Summary Brown has disappeared again. Maddening player. Overhyped based on him maybe putting it all together. Two goals to start the game then takes the next 50 minutes off Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015
Michael McLeod Summary McLeod getting stronger and faster as the game goes on. More and more active trying to get the Trout back to level. Skating is on display for all to see and it is a sight. Edge work is very good as well, quick starts and stops. Good game from the speedster Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015
Michael McLeod Summary McLeod was an interesting player to watch. was very engaged in the play, won most of his draws, and never gave up on the game. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015
Mikhail Sergachev Summary Sergachev had a huge night with a goal, three assists, was a +4, and 6 shots. Played amazing and lights out. Each game makes me excited to see what he does. easily a 1st round selection in the 2016 draft and one of the top defenseman available. Zachary DeVine Mississauga vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 11/13/2015

Troy Grosenick Note First goal against came on a two-on-one on which Grosenick was too deep in his net to make a save. The play broke down in front of him and a lucky bounce put the puck on Agostino's stick, but if Grosenick had been at the top of his crease we would have had a chance to make a positional save. Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Troy Grosenick Note Slow to get position on the Granlund goal. It looked like he only partially committed to dropping down and moving to the right post and Granlund beat him glove side Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Nikita Jevpalovs Note First period he was one of the better Baracuda forwards. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015

Oliver Kylington Note Kylington paired with Wotherspoon early. I think it is a smart, complimentary pairing. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Oliver Kylington Note PP time to end the 2nd was a tour de force even through he let the puck out of the zone after the face off. Usually floated back, held the puck, kicked up the speed and lead the breakout back into the offensive zone. Good low, hard shot and again quick and active. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Oliver Kylington Note Shift after Timmins' goal, Kylington walks in and nearly ties it. Every shift seems more confident. Deployed more often in the 3rd. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Oliver Kylington Note Caught cheating at 5:25 of 3rd and used superior skating to recover completely. Impressive viewing, a player to watch. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015

Julius Bergman Summary Improving each game I have seen him. Reminds me of a younger Dylan Demelo, more relevant to NHL teams than fantasy but I think he can make the show. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Dylan DeMelo Summary Decent game from him, but not his best. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Dylan DeMelo Summary Decent two-way defenseman without much size or standout abilities. A good AHL defenseman, but I'm not sure there are any standout tools that makes him an NHL player Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Markus Granlund Summary Too soft on the backcheck and not enough sand in him. Very talented but no where near contact nor traffic. He is a very fast player, deceptively slow. Hard shot, favors the snap shot in most cases. Future MVP of the SHL. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Markus Granlund Summary Good size and can skate well, but having watched him a few times over the last couple of years, I was disappointed in his overall lack of improvement in decision-making and hockey smarts. Has the skill level to be an average NHL middle-six type of player, but just hasn't put it all together yet. Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Troy Grosenick Summary Competitive nature in the net helps compensate for average positional play. Good rebound control, especially in heavy traffic. His movement is quick, but his technique, especially moving creast to post, needs to be cleaned up. At least two or three years away. Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Troy Grosenick Summary Battled hard to get the point that the 'Cuda had no right in getting. He isn’t the prettiest goalie to watch, but compete level is very high and isn’t giving up on any plays despite so-so defensive help. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Nikita Jevpalovs Summary Jevpalovs with another solid game, a player that you have to really watch to appreciate. Often the first to get back, plays a quick transition game but slow shot gets deflected or blocked. Still like his well-rounded game, no shifts taken off. Offensively coming along but taking the defensive responsibilities seriously. Elite physicality tonight, more so then usual for him, which is already a solid part of his game. Needs to work on and develop his shot as well as shoot more and use his physical, driving play to get to the front of the net. At the end of the game, after seeing his slick, patient SO goal, makes one wonder what  he could have done earlier in the game with a few more shots. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Nikita Jevpalovs Summary Works hard in all three zones and shows above average speed. His play looks suited more for a bottom-six role player spot than a second-line scorer, but he has legitimate NHL ability. Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Oliver Kylington Summary Kylington is small, but demonstrated good body positioning and stick work. Out-developed at the moment by AHL men. Skating is very impressive. Smart angles, quick stick and sharp, hard passes. His quick transitions and overall impressive skating allows gambling and the skill to recover. I am seeing some of the risky items in his game that were all over his player notes before the draft, but nothing alarming or frankly unwelcome in an offensive defenseman. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Oliver Kylington Summary Smallish, and looks like he needs some more time to learn the finer aspects of zone play, but he is a shining example of an offensive defenseman. Excellent skating, agility and hands. Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015
Emile Poirier Summary Offensively explosive, fast and strong vision. Would much prefer to see a simple, north/south game from him using his speed and hands, instead of these bad habits in his second year as a professional. Hands are there, question is if the rest of the game can be rounded out. Zachary DeVine San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Live 11/21/2015
Emile Poirier Summary Top-level vision and puck skills, great on his feet, and excellent release on the one-timer. Needs at least the rest of the year in the AHL to prepare for playing at the top level of hockey Brian Fogarty San Jose vs Stockton (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2015

Rudolfs Balcers Note Balcers throws the breaks on to get a lane to shoot, has his feet taken out of from under him, while in mid-air gets the shot off that nearly trickles through the Spokane goalie but a quick whistle saves it. Zachary DeVine Spokane vs Kamloops (WHL) Stream 11/23/2016
Rudolfs Balcers Note Balcers floating in close to the net able to collect the pinballing puck and quickly get it to the empty net. Balcers has a knack for quiet but dangerous areas of the ice. Zachary DeVine Spokane vs Kamloops (WHL) Stream 11/23/2016
Rudolfs Balcers Note Balcers just slippery in close. Seems to be able to get to the front of the net with no one noticing. Zachary DeVine Spokane vs Kamloops (WHL) Stream 11/23/2016
Nolan Kneen Note Kneen goes to line up a hipcheck and it’s completely off. Allows a 3-on-1 and ultimately a goal. Not a good read. Zachary DeVine Spokane vs Kamloops (WHL) Stream 11/23/2016
Nolan Kneen Note Kneen not afraid of the rough stuff. A second fight in as many games against Spokane, not afraid to stand in there and to throw the right hand. Zachary DeVine Spokane vs Kamloops (WHL) Stream 11/23/2016

Urho Vaakanainen Note Vaakanainen body positioning often isn’t ideal, allowing attacking forwards an out. Doesn’t eliminate the player Zachary DeVine JYP vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/23/2016
Ondrej Vala Note Vala keeps tight gaps and his stick in the lane. Zachary DeVine Spokane vs Kamloops (WHL) Stream 11/23/2016

Derek Gentile Note Whiffs on a puck in the offensive zone, tries to recover and gives the puck away. Not a good sequence of choices. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Derek Gentile Note Made a play I didn't like at all by turning up ice away from his teammate trying to exit the zone, leaving no opportunity for a clean exit pass, and led to a turnover. Would have been smarter to support the breakout instead of trying to get clear in the neutral zone Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016

Nico Hischier Note Great change of direction that left a defender scrambling to recover Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Note There have been at least three times this game where Hischier has a made a play while down on the ice. Never gives up in the offensive zone. Will he develop that same tenacity on D? If so, he'll become a highly dangerous and effective player. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Note Hischier’s stickhandling on another level in this game. Edges are very good too, stops quickly, let’s the defender go by to get space to make a play. Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Note Strange 3-2 power play leaves Hischeir and Fortier on the top of the deployment. Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016

Nico Hischier Note Rang the crossbar, then gathered the puck and sent a nice pass to Fortier for a one-timer Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016

Philipp Kurashev Note Great job off the puck during a 2-on-1 to get squared and ready for a one-timer, which he guided far post past a sliding Gravel Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016

Philipp Kurashev Note Not the best choice in the closing seconds of the tied game, could have gone back to the point to an advancing defender and a chance for a big one-timer, but instead went backhand to the slot and the play was broken up. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016

Otto Somppi Note Good work to get back to his own blue line to chase down a puck, but instead of collecting the puck and gaining good possession, he just slapped a blind backhand back to center ice and straight to a Quebec attacker. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note I like his physicality and attention to defense. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016

Kristian Vesalainen Note Strong move down the wing at the net by Vesalainen, big defensive effort saves a goal Zachary DeVine JYP vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/24/2016
Maxime Fortier Summary Fortier is speed, acceleration and drive. He is not necessarily crafty with the puck, but does not hesitate to shoot and finds space whenever available. I didn't see him really generate offense on his own, however, though a lot of that might be due to Hischier running the offense and they share ice time. Hard to tell if he is a quality offensive player or complementing Hischier's game right now. I'd like to see him play without such an obvious playmaker. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Derek Gentile Summary Not an impressive showing from the small forward. He was unnoticeable for most of the game, and made some poor choices. Gentile has quickness, and looks like a player who could develop, but he's definitely a project at this young age. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Summary The best player on the ice, without question. Hischier needs to spend some more effort on the backcheck and in the defensive zone, but his play in his own end is not a liability and will improve. His offensive skills and speed are excellent, and his vision is excellent or better. He shows great awareness and patience on the ice, and was untouchable when he had the puck on his stick. He should be a top choice for the 2017 draft Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Summary Looks bigger than his listed 5'11 height, has a good reach and balance that allows him to take up space. His offensive instincts and ability to convert chances is above average or better, and he should further develop is game over this season and next before his draft. His production at draft-year minus one is highly encouraging, to say the least. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Summary Somppi plays with gusto and seems constantly active when he is on the ice, but he lacks offensive creativity. He plays the body and will take the puck to the net, but he looks like the very definition of a north-south player. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016

Zachary Senyshyn Note A different player down low in the offensive zone. Will go to the net, drive with the puck Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Josh Ho-Sang Summary If Ho-Sang would just shoot the puck, he would be among the world's top prospects. Instead, he uses his speed and ridiculous dexterity on his feet and in his hands to move the puck through the neutral and offensive zones and create chances for his teammates. However, unless he can scare defenders with his shot, NHL players will let him play around with the puck all game long. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Boris Katchouk Summary Katchouk does not have blazing speed, but all other facets of his game are above average or better. Strong on his feet and tough to move. Good puck possession skills and a hard worker all over the ice. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Graham Knott Summary Still a work in progress, the big forward shows strength and decent agility in multiple phases of the game. Uses his size well because he can move well laterally and use his edgework to gain superior positions on the ice. Could become a solid middle-six centerman that opponents do not like playing against. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Brendan Perlini Summary The dominant player in the game, using his size and strength to get possession, and then his hands and smarts to generate scoring chances for himself or his teammates. A solid performance all around. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Zachary Senyshyn Summary Disappointing is the word. When he is in the offensive zone, he shows energy and determination to get to the front of the net. Outside of the zone, it's a different story. Multiple instances of being the last player back on transitions by the other team. Lack of effort in his own end led to two goals against. Brian Fogarty Niagara vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2015
Lias Andersson Summary Andersson has been a mainstay on HV71’s third line and been a contributor to the teams success. Overall, points aren’t coming as hoped but the youngster has not looked out of place or intimidated by the level of competition in the top Swedish league. Andersson has decent height at 5’11 but is very well built at nearly 200 pounds and uses the size well. He can float a bit defensively, but keeps his feet moving in the offensive zone and while not an explosive skater, it isn’t a knock either. Has the work ethic, defensive awareness and skill to package nicely as a second line center in the NHL if his development stays the course. Currently projects as a player in the top half of the first round. Zachary DeVine HV71 vs Luela (SHL) Stream 11/26/2016
Timothy Liljegren Summary Liljegren is considered the top defender in the 2017 NHL entry draft and it is easy to see why. After a bout of mono to start the 2016-17 season, he has quickly come back for Rogle and been a steady, calm presence for one of the weaker teams in the SHL. Liljegren’s skating ability is excellent and fluid. Transitions and edge work are exemplary. Skating with the puck is impressive, carrying the play up ice with his head up and ready to make a play. He has a good shot overall, but can be prone to firing from deep on the blueline with little chance of effectiveness. Would like to see a bit more patience with shots from the point. However when considering he is a 17-year-old defender who is entering his second professional season with Rogle, and considering his position, Lilegren is one of the very top players and should be off the board quickly. Zachary DeVine Rogle vs Brynas (SHL) Stream 11/26/2016

Robin Salo Summary Robin Salo has okay size and okay skating, but he’s playing his offhand in a men’s league and getting top pair minutes. Good reads in all three zones and comfortable with the puck on his stick coming out of the zone. First few steps are sluggish and his stride is short. In a 6-2 loss to Ilves, Salo had 6 shots, was 4th on the team in TOI with over 20 minutes and no points and finished the game only a -1 while the Lynx chewed up the lower defenders for four goals in the third period.

Juuso Valimaki Note Valimaki not using any speed through the neutral zone. Not backing up the Portland defense and allowing them to stand up. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs Portland (WHL) Stream 11/6/2016
Juuso Valimaki Note Valimaki’s skating looks a bit clunky and his give and go drive to the net is predictible. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs Portland (WHL) Stream 11/6/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Shifty stickwork in the offensive zone got a pass to his teammate in the slot, chance generated. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Generated good speed without the puck through the neutral zone, but in the resulting offensive-zone shift, SJ never gained possession of the puck. Goldobin passed on an opportunity to make a hit, and actually turned the wrong way trying to anticipate a poke check instead. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note No energy in puck pursuit, despite being down 5-2 in the third. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Note Nice defensive zone check that disrupted the puck carrier. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Note Hips are slow on his pivot to reverse skating, and he actually hopped a bit to get his foot around. An opponent with better acceleration would have blasted past him. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Note Nice read, quick pass through the crease to Yakimov who couldn't get his stick on the puck for a tap in. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Note Doorstep backhand for a point-blank goal. Nice read and change of direction to get to the front of the net. 8:21 of the first period. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Note Continues to impress with steady, two-way play. Physical in front of the net, strong with both hands, good balance. The anti-Yakimov. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Note Scores his second goal with only a couple of minutes left in the game. The best part of the play was his collecting a bad pass with his skate, turning and shooting short-side from a sharp angle. No defensive pressure on him, though, and bad positioning by Grosenick to allow the goal. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note Good skating with the puck up through the neutral zone, but lost possession at the offensive-zone blue line. Deked past two opposing forwards to get through the neutral zone, but lost control in a crowd of his own teammates who are all stacked up at the blue line. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note Good balance and stickhandling with the puck. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note Third attempt at a left-to-right toe-drag move to beat an opponent when one-on-one. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note Again trying to do too much. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Mirco Mueller Note On the powerplay, the puck was sent deep into his own zone. When Dell (Bakersfield G) left the puck off, Mueller failed to get back to support his teammate and a turnover to the forechecker led directly to a wrap-around goal while Mueller stood in the slot watching the play.  Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Mirco Mueller Note Has the skills, but zero creativity. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Mirco Mueller Note Took a pass in the defensive zone during a line reset. Passed to his forward coming back towards him, but the better play was a D-to-D pass. Mueller's choice led to a turnover and a shot on goal against. Later in the period, in the same circumstances, Mueller went D-to-D. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Mirco Mueller Note Nice touch on a stretch pass to the offensive-zone blue line. The shift eventually resulted in a goal, but Muelller's pass had little to do with it. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Mirco Mueller Note Good shift early in the second period, with solid positioning, switches and smart reads that helped clear the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Bogdan Yakimov Note Heavy feet. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Bogdan Yakimov Note I haven't really seen Yakimov use his size with any effectiveness yet. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Bogdan Yakimov Note Doesn't seem to generate any power from his legs, and that might be why he doesn't play strong on the puck. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Bogdan Yakimov Note Yakimov is very top heavy. Twice he took taps to his back in the offensive-zone slot and both times he nearly fell over. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Summary Goldobin obviously possesses skills, and showed some sparks of creativity. However, in this game at least, he showed little interest in playing a complete game and was mostly invisible throughout all three periods. Granted, it was a lackluster game all around, but Goldobin's performance was disappointing. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Summary Easily the highest raw talent in the Sharks prospect pool, Goldy had a very forgettable game. The knock on him in his draft year continues: seems to coast at times and does in fact look bored for entire periods and even games at a time. Had opportunities to contribute physically and chose to turn away from contact each time and spent zero time in the slot trying to get a scoring chance. Easily the worst game in several viewings. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Summary Of the five players under focus, Khaira clearly had the best game. Despite his two goals, his offensive skills are limited to grinder production. However, he competed hard all over the ice, showed smart, physical play and despite not being a blazing, agile skater was more than capable with his skating. Based on this viewing I'd say that Khaira has a chance at becoming a decent bottom-six forward for the NHL. His spot on the prospect list is indicative of his fantasy potential, but I can see him playing in the NHL next season. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Jujhar Khaira Summary Seemed to never leave the ice. Great motor and complete level in all three zones. Good-skating big man with decent hands and reasonably smart play. Aggressive on the forecheck, mixed it up in front of San Jose net on a number of occasions and deployed in all situations. Often deployed with Yakimov and Slepyshev to form a tall and heavy line that the undersized San Jose defenders had no ability to compete with physically. Could easily be called up and be part of the bottom 6 forwards for the Oilers and contribute.  Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 11/8/2015
Joey LaLeggia Summary Small, but quick, a smooth skater who needs to learn that he has to use his teammates more at this level. However, given the lack of quick skill on the Bakersfield team, his efforts were mostly unmatched. LaLeggia was a bright spot in a dreary, dismal game, but he will need more than fancy skating and puckhandling to earn a consistent spot in the NHL. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Joey LaLeggia Summary Fantastic skater and riverboat gambler, LaLeggia reminds me of a Dan Boyle. Makes smart plays that drive possession and scoring chances. For being only 5’10, LaLeggia is nearly always in the correct position and knows how to use his slight frame for maximum benefit. His creativity and fearlessness is something he will need to retain--whilst bulking up his slight frame--to contribute at the next level. Play in the corners was adequate, but his quick stick and good vision helps keep him out of trouble. With high risk as well as reward, a player all owners should have on their radar. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 11/8/2015
Mirco Mueller Summary Mueller displayed good defensive positioning at time, and there were shifts during the game during which his selection at 18th overall in the 2013 draft seemed warranted. However, far more often he disappeared, especially in the offensive zone. Mueller's lack of creativity left him pushing soft-touched but deliberate, telegraphed passes to his linemates. He never seemed to drive play at all, and that is worrisome for a player who spent significant time in the NHL last season. Mueller is not yet 21 years of age, so there is a chance he can develop his defensive play enough to get back to the NHL, but his offense will not get him there. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Mirco Mueller Summary Mueller has taken a step backwards this year. With 39 games in the NHL last year and looking inexperienced but not completely out of place, this year in the AHL he has two speeds: panicked, or lazy. Made a number of poor, uninspired plays, one of which he turned over the puck then did little to challenge the puck thief, who promptly scored a shorthanded goal with Mueller simply watching. His already predictable plays become even more so after a mistake and other teams are keying on this. Has turned from a prospect to a project. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 11/8/2015
Bogdan Yakimov Summary Yakimov looks to be a rare breed of hockey player: a big man who might rather be smaller. He has decent puck skills, but his feet are so heavy, his skating so deliberate and awkward, and his lack of power in his legs makes Yakimov look as if he is constantly teetering on the verge of tipping over. Based on this viewing, I would put the probability of Yakimov becoming an NHL player at less than ten percent. Brian Fogarty Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Video (With Replay) 11/8/2015
Bogdan Yakimov Summary Terrible, upright and underpowered skating drags down an otherwise talented prospect. Massive frame, good hands and good vision, “Yak” can see what he needs to do and has the hands to do it, but the wheels just don’t have the ability to do what the head wants them to. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 11/8/2015
Timothy Liljegren Note Liljegren with very limited time in the match. On a few shifts the hallmarks of his game were evident: smooth skating, quick decisions, tape-to-tape passes Zachary DeVine Vaxjo vs Rogle (SHL) Steam 12/1/2016
Timothy Liljegren Note Liljegren out on the power play with Rogle down a goal halfway through the third. Most of the plays running through him and he’s out for more than half of the man advantage. Zachary DeVine Vaxjo vs Rogle (SHL) Steam 12/1/2016
Robin Salo Note Salo with a smart activation to keep the play alive and gets back to even out the 3 on 2 and takes the center of the ice. Good defensive awareness. Zachary DeVine Sport vs JYP (Liiga) Steam 12/1/2016
Robin Salo Note Salo steady in all zones. Has ability in the offensive zone, more as a puck distributor. Traditional two-way defender. Zachary DeVine Sport vs JYP (Liiga) Steam 12/1/2016
Andrei Svechnikov Note Dirty area goal for Svechnikov as he gets an initial shot on goal, circles back to drive the net and gets a stick on it. Nose for the net on that play. Zachary DeVine Russia vs Switzerland (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/13/2016
Klim Kostin Note Inspired shift by Kostin around the 9-minute mark. Using his size to shield the puck on two plays, including a chance on net. Zachary DeVine Russia vs Switzerland (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/13/2016
Klim Kostin Note Kostin with quick edges to gather the puck, circle and get the cross-ice feed through. Zachary DeVine Russia vs Switzerland (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/13/2016
Klim Kostin Note Kostin one-times the rebound for the score. Read the play well, stayed in a soft area of the crease where he could get the shot off. Zachary DeVine Russia vs Switzerland (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/13/2016
Klim Kostin Note Halfway through the first and Kostin is coasting on a lot of plays. Gave up the puck easily in the defensive zone on one play by just lobbing it up the boards to no one in particular and the Swiss defense easily gets the puck back. Zachary DeVine Russia vs Switzerland (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/13/2016
Andrei Svechnikov Note Svechnikov has wheels. Quick feet, excellent edge work Zachary DeVine USA vs Russia (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/15/2016
Andrei Svechnikov Note Svechnikov hounding the puck carrier but draws a slashing penalty. Like the effort on the play. Very tough on the puck in the first period. Zachary DeVine USA vs Russia (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/15/2016
Andrei Svechnikov Note Svechnikov takes a centering pass and off the rush gets it up on the USA goalie. Quick shot that got up with little space. Scored both goals for Russia in the loss. Heck of showing for the 2000-born winger. Zachary DeVine USA vs Russia (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/15/2016
Klim Kostin Note Kostin with a good centering pass with two USA defenders draped on him in the corner. Follows that play up with another good pass to the defender. Good vision on the plays. Zachary DeVine USA vs Russia (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/15/2016
Klim Kostin Note Kostin with two good stick checks to get the puck back in the offensive zone. Zachary DeVine USA vs Russia (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/15/2016
Klim Kostin Note Kostin seeing some time on the PK for the Russian side. Zachary DeVine USA vs Russia (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/15/2016
Klim Kostin Note Kostin on a few plays I’ve noted has done more fly-by skating using his stick than to physically contend for the puck. He’s a physical specimen at this level, would like to see more engagement. Zachary DeVine USA vs Russia (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/15/2016
Jakob Chychrun Note A fluid Skater, left-handed shot, good size. Slows the play down Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Not at all afraid to go end-to-end and very adept at it. Dangled through three opponents and got off a good backhanded shot that caused trouble for the goalie Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Calm, easy breakout pass leads to an odd-man rush and goal Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Another typical Chychrun play: puck carrier trying to move behind the Sarnia goal, and Chychrun uses mutliple tools to seal off the skater, active stick to dislodge the puck, then stick defense covering the man out the front of the net and eliminating a scoring chance Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Standing there on the PP, want to see some more activation. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Plays look lazy, but its just completely calm and confident in his abilities. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Long stick. Uses it well, few good poke checks. Very smart player, positioning is very solid for a young defenseman as well. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Turns with ease. Solid agility Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Steady at the point on the powerplay. Well-managed play with the puck even under pressure from the penalty killers Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Beat Muzito-Bagenda with strength and determination behind his own net, then drove a breakout quickly up the right-wing boards. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Note Takes a hit to make a play, and was head-up to find the right outlet pass before the hit came. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Note Spent a defensive-zone shift where he looked like he was waiting for something to happen, instead of making something happen Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Note Caught deep, chasing down a puck carrier but seemed unhurried in pursuit. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Note Just not enough urgency in his game. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Note Day with an undisciplined and dangerous play, lucky to only get two minutes Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Note Day displays good vision and awareness. I like the blend he has of defense and offensive ability Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Note Day chose the hit over the puck clear from the crease. Immature play showing up here in the third in a few minor ways. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Note Kept his cool after Hague badly misplayed a three-on-two. Day found the puck and moved it to his winger. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Note Bad retribution hit, boarding called Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jack Flinn Note Flinn way out on top of his crease, looking confident and with some good saves tonight thus far. Twenty-third straight start Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jack Flinn Note Flinn likes to go down early and gets burned on the fifth goal. Needs to stay on his feet to get post to post quickly to seal the far side. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nick Hague Note Huge 2017 defenseman, needs a lot of seasoning in his play Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nick Hague Note When he's involved in the play, Hague shows good instincts, but he looks as if he is overthinking the play when he has more time Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nick Hague Note Tends toward making a hit instead of a sound defensive play Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note sneaky quick. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Nice one-touch pass back to Mistele trying to create space below the goal line in the offensive zone Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Big powerplay shot from the slot on a one-timer Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015

Nikita Korostelev Note Again with good hands and a tricky wrist shot Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Quick release is causing problems for the goalie Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Completes a two-on-one with a sick right-left move and a backhand goal, bar down. He had hit the post earlier in the shift with a nasty wrist shot. Turns out that the earlier post was actually in the net, so Korostelev pulled off a rare, two-goal shift. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Really impressed with his vision and offensive instincts. Another great pass for a doorstep chance Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Nice between the legs chance on net (PP) Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Nifty mitts but hasn’t generated much with them. Cute plays that are a touch too cute. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Circles around the net, protecting the puck and quick movements. Solid on his skates Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Drives the net well, teammates will get the puck and he will immediately head for a post. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Korostelev with a quick release coming in off-wing, shoots right into Flinn Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Another solid chance cruising through the slot and later in the shift gets in front to create screen. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Note Hits the iron with a wicked shot, then later in the same shift scores with a huge backhander. But the first goal actually went in, but a great shift either way. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Michael McLeod Note Big, but good on his feet. Long strides that generate good top-end speed. Finished shift with a big hit along the boards. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Michael McLeod Note Impressed with McLeod's skating. Great balance and edgework. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Michael McLeod Note McLeod can fly, but what else can he do? Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Michael McLeod Note Finally uses his speed to generate a real chance Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Michael McLeod Note McLeod skates exceedingly well, drives the center of the ice and gets into traffic areas. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Michael McLeod Note Looking good tonight, more confident stick handling vs. previous viewing Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Michael McLeod Note Overplays the backcheck and allows a rebound goal after Flinn makes three or four saves. Lots of contact in the crease, can’t blame Flinn. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Michael McLeod Note Keeps working hard even down by a handful of goals Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Matt Mistele Note Showing good hockey awareness, not cheating and playing a dependable defensive game half way into the first Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Matt Mistele Note Goal above was created by deft stickhandling by Korostelev to center Mistele crashed the net. Goal should have been waived off, though Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Matt Mistele Note Took the puck through the middle from his own goal line to a step beyond his offensive blue line. Good handling, but had a better play to drop to Korostelev and instead took a long, useless shot that ended the play. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Matt Mistele Note Offensive shift ended with a nice hit to disrupt a breakout. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Matt Mistele Note Simply mishandled the puck in the neutral zone and let the puck drift off of his stick to the opposition Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Matt Mistele Note Gets a goal by driving the net and putting away a rebound. Puck went into the net because Mistele forced it with the goalies pad and should have been disallowed. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Daniel Muzito-Bagenda Note Skates well, but a few odd forced passes. Left shot playing left wing tonight. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Daniel Muzito-Bagenda Note Goes coast to coast, seems to get tunnel vision during plays Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Daniel Muzito-Bagenda Note Big, with big strides that generate better than average straightline speed. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Daniel Muzito-Bagenda Note Offensive zone slashing penalty that wasn't in any way necessary Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Daniel Muzito-Bagenda Note Looks much bigger than his 6'1 listing. Thick. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Daniel Muzito-Bagenda Note Powered his way through the neutral zone, diagonal across the blue line, took the puck along the right-wing boards, powered through a defender and then lost the puck to Chychrun. Bagenda was all alone in the offensive zone and showed good possession and power. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Daniel Muzito-Bagenda Note Good powerful strides in puck pursuit. I want to see him finish some chances, though Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Daniel Muzito-Bagenda Note Shows good vision and soft hands with a nice saucer pass to a cutting D for a scoring chance Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Summary Chychrun is the complete package. Size, balance, agility, smarts, hands, energy and work ethic. He likely pkayed 30+ minutes in this game without noticeable mistakes, and controlled the game at times. Chychrun could be a future NHL All-Star Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jakob Chychrun Summary A quiet game, but did everything right. A player you have to watch closely to get the nuances he is able to deliver. Immediately thought of Marc-Eduard Vlasic when I watched him the first time and I stand by that comparison. First game back aftering being a late cut on the WJC team, he could have pouted and instead turned in a solid, all-around performance. Top 15 pick. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Summary Has all of the makings of a fine NHL blueliner, except the crucial quality of making good, timely decisions and urgent play. Day, at this point anyway, looks like a player who isn't relaxed and enjoying playing the game. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Sean Day Summary Everything you have heard or read on Sean Day was on display tonight. Amazing skating ability, above average talent, fleeting interest in the game and a quick fuse that can hurt his team. I really like this player if he can ever get his head straight. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Jack Flinn Summary Tonight was the 23rd straight start for the 6’ 8” goalie who has been having an excellent season for the Steelheads. I still am not a fan of his lateral movement tendencies. Needs to allow the puck to come to him and keep upright more. Played small tonight and it showed on the scoreboard. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nick Hague Summary Huge, but plays really young. Good instinctual play at times, but under duress made poor choices. However, he has time to get more settled into playing CHL over the next season before his draft year begins. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Summary Dominated the game in the offensive zone and was easily to most dangerous player on the ice. Based on this viewing, I'm surprised that he dropped to the seventh round, so I'm left wondering what his flaws were that the scouts saw last year. Korostelev is a player who needs more viewings Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Nikita Korostelev Summary Was the best player on the ice tonight. Creative, inspired play mixed skill around the net with the grit to drive the goal, as well. Quick hands and a good release, a lot of offense was created though Korostelev tonight. Will have to watch a closer game to see how he deals with a tighter checking game, but a steal in the seventh round for the Leafs. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Michael McLeod Summary McLeod is the type of player that makes coaches drool. World-class skating ability with a solid frame. What I didn't see in this game was the ability to turn those attributes into offense. Appears like a complementary player who needs to develop more aggressive scoring attitude. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Matt Mistele Summary Had a goal and assist, but the goal should have been waived off. Was riding shotgun all night to Nikita Korostelev who i thought was carrying the line. Mistele could be a NHL player, but I don’t think he translates to more than a third liner. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Matt Mistele Summary Nothing overly special from him in this game. A good hockey player, but not a lot of high-end ability. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Daniel Muzito-Bagenda Summary Plays the game like a train: solid and heavy with a lot of momentum, but often seems unable to jump off the tracks laid out in front of him. Showed good hands and touch, but never seemed like a real threat to score. Brian Fogarty Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Daniel Muzito-Bagenda Summary First time viewing this player, and he was very energetic with good speed and skating ability. Stick handling couldn’t keep up with what the mind was seeing on the ice, but an interesting blend of grit, speed and skill. Seemed to zero in on a play and lose situational awareness often. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015
Michael McLeod Summay Hard working and honest game out of McLeod again tonight. Speed and work ethic will get him far, and has the overall talent to be a contributor. Was the fuel for a team that was missing spark, but did all he could in this game. Zachary DeVine Sarnia vs Mississauga (OHL) Video 12/18/2015

Parker Wotherspoon Note Good stick handling, but can lack urgency Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs. Everett (WHL) Video 12/2/2015
Brandon Carlo Summary Complete defender. Active and engaged all night, displayed good physicality, defensive responsibility and a good bit of offensive jump,as well. Smooth skating, and a quick transition game helped him drive possession and get chances on the Everett net Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs. Everett (WHL) Video 12/2/2015
Carter Hart Summary Hart keeping Everett in the game. Under siege but battling to see the puck and getting in front of the puck. Waiting for his team to wake up. Not the most technical display. Hart helpful in back of the net with the puck, often getting the puck to his defense in a better position. Confident with the puck and under forechecker pressure. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs. Everett (WHL) Video 12/2/2015
Noah Juulsen Summary In a game that got away from the Tips, Juulsen's engine, complete level and work ethic were on display. More engaged physically in this game than others in the past, which I really liked and thought added a lot to his game. Took a good roughing penalty and threw some solid clean hits with his team down by four goals. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs. Everett (WHL) Video 12/2/2015
Michael Rasmussen Summary A very complete game from the young man who is a top prospect for the 2017 draft. Drove the net with noticeable frequency, not shying away from contact nor traffic. Positioning wise I noticed a number of blocked passes and shots. Tall and lanky, he was better adjusted to his large frame than others in his peer group, helping him display a high level of refinement to his game. Skating overall is good, especially for his size but needs further development. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs. Everett (WHL) Video 12/2/2015
Evan Sarthou Summary Sarthou looking strong. Quiet feet, makes himself big and lets the puck hit him. Numbers aren't great, but in this first viewing I'm liking his game. Projectable professional goalie with more development. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs. Everett (WHL) Video 12/2/2015
Parker Wotherspoon Summary Found Wotherspoon to be backing off the play at times, allowing too much time and space for attackers. Not a huge fan of defenders using the toe drag at the blue line, which Parker did a number of times. Plays well in all three zones, but needs more intensity in his game to go with a solid skill foundation. Zachary DeVine Tri-City vs. Everett (WHL) Video 12/2/2015
Jesper Boqvist Note Boqvist with quick hands on the power play. Made two great cross-ice passes but they didn’t turn into chances on net. Zachary DeVine Västervik vs Timra (Allsvensken) Steam 12/2/2016

Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin walks out and scores beating Ortio against the grain with a quick release. Kulak caught going the wrong way off the rush. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015

Barclay Goodrow Note Young scores, broken play, everyone did their job, just one of those things. Kylington did a nice job tying up the forward, but Young comes in from the point. Goodrow started it with some mucking in front of the net, another point for Goodrow. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Morgan Klimchuk Note Klimchuk deployed on the PK, good wheels and always liked his complete level. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015

Oliver Kylington Note Kylington with good gap control on numerous plays in the second. A bit of muscle is all he needs but its a glaring deficiency at time. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington with quick activation and good shot on goal. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Mirco Mueller Note Mueller out for second time on the PK, matched with Stollery Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Mirco Mueller Note Mueller needs to take the puck around the net with authority. Too often he banks it to his partner in a questionable situation, handcuffing him. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Mirco Mueller Note Mueller does it again and handcuffs Cundari with a reverse behind the net. Looks scared to carry the puck. With his skating he NEEDS to be carrying the puck. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Joni Ortio Note Ortio flashes the leather, made some solid saves early, Cuda pressing. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015

Emile Poirier Note Poirier gets blown up looking at his own mistake. More Q badness in his game Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Emile Poirier Note Poirier needs to do the little things: seal the backside boards, stick on the ice, not cheat up ice. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Morgan Klimchuk Sumary With his first two points of his AHL career, Morgan Klimchuk was a force in this game. Wheels, vision, tenacity, defensive responsibility, he displayed it all. It was my first time viewing Klimchuk, but very excited to see him again and confirm the excellent skills and ability on display in this game. If there is consistency to this level of play, could be challenging for a NHL spot next year. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Petter Emanuelsson Summary Emanuelsson has really turned the corner in the last month after last year's terrible shoulder injury. Above average skating, good vision, good hands, solid defensive play, well rounded, three zone game. Has been seeing increased ice time as the season has progressed and is responding. A player to watch as the season continues, might be a call-up option later in the year and will challenge for a NHL roll next year. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Summary Goldobin will never be a player of consequence due to his near zero compete level. You can deal with lack of physicality, hitting isn’t everything, but he isn’t going into traffic, competing hard for lose pucks, in the crease for positioning, etc. He’s a player that if it comes easy he can do something with it, and his talent will flash, but it’s the little things that make you a professional and he is not exhibiting those at the AHL level. This is my last entry on this player until something is shown that needs to be noticed. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Barclay Goodrow Summary Barclay Goodrow with another strong viewing, leading the Barracuda offensively and physically. He has finishing ability but his AHL game must be modified for him to have success at the NHL level. However, his physical play does translate exceedingly well and Goodrow could be a useful third-line player in the NHL soon. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Oliver Kylington Summary Continue to be impressed with Oliver Kylington’s game. Consistency will be the issue for him, as he has a high level of skill but not much of a physical presence. He will need to develop physically to survive. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Mirco Mueller Summary The same issues continue to dog Mirco Mueller. His decision making was below his already low standards. Handcuffing his defensive partner repeatedly with the same play where attacking forwards have the book on him. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Joni Ortio Summary Ortio’s game has taken a half-step back this year. Where last year he could steal a game and had a swagger to his play, that is missing this year. Technical ability is there, but the head seems out of it. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Emile Poirier Summary Poirier continues to get a lot of experience at the AHL level, but issues that were seen last year and earlier this year continue. Poirier needs to commit to improvement in his game. Until he does, he will continue to be a very good AHL player with spot call-up duties. If he can work on his game and commit to the play needed at the NHL, he could be a second-line player. Zachary DeVine Stockton vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/20/2015
Alexander Nylander Note Obviously shows many traits as his brother, William. Vision is excellent, sees and feels the ice very well. Both of them are so good, lots of similarity in their games. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Sweden (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Mathew Barzal Note Barzel is buzzing this period, matches well with Chartier Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015

Louis Belpedio Note Belpedio poorly plays a 2-on-1, Krys screws ups Neds recovery, just bad bad bad by those two. Both look amazingly outclassed. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Louis Belpedio Note Belpedio shoots the puck on net and Joe Hicketts deflects the puck past MacDonald. Cost USA a goal then gets one. MacDonald had it tracked and ready to make the right handed catch. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Louis Belpedio Note Belpedio with a clumsy dump and later in the same shift has the puck easily knocked off his stick into the neutral zone. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Louis Belpedio Note Belpedio with a good stop on Virtanen and gets the puck going the other way. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Louis Belpedio Note I am not a fan of Louis Belpedio’s game halfway through the first. Looks out of place. A number of turnovers, physically and talent-wise outmatched. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Anders Bjork Note Bjork needs to slow down his game, making rash decisions. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Brandon Carlo Note Carlo had a rough shift with 6:30 left in the 2nd Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015

Brandon Carlo Note Carlo holds his own, solid defensive play thus far. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Colin White Note Dvorak, Milano, White have been the best line for USA with good zone entries and much better passing/vision than the other lines Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Colin White Note Milano’s shot is wide and White is crashing. Nice dirty goal with a good dose of hard work. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Alex DeBrincat Note Debrincat with a stupid spear and gets tossed. There goes that. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Alex DeBrincat Note Debrincat works his ass off. Looks like Matthews' baby brother on that line, but earning a full share. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Dylan Strome Note Strome comes back and is rightly rewarded for being the strongest Canadian player of the game. Hard wrist shot after Marner gains and drives the zone. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Dylan Strome Note Strome having a good overall game, Hicketts is fearless. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015

Joe Hicketts Note Joe Hicketts with a few hits to establish the game, interesting he wasn’t suspended after the Aho Incident. High-end motor and physical play despite small stature. Plays 6 inches and 30 pounds heavier. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Axel Holmstrom Note Skating is much improved. Hands and vision have always been there. Might be felony theft by Detroit picking him in the 7th round. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Sweden (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Denis Malgin Note First viewing of this player, but is highly talented. Excellent in possession of the puck, calm play under pressure. Smart and excellent hands. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Sweden (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Auston Matthews Note Matthews isn’t really skating hard at all in this game. Looks disinterested. Needs a motor installed. Talent without complete level is wasted. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Auston Matthews Note Matthews looks like a grown man out there. Quiet in first 7 minutes Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Auston Matthews Note Tkchuk and Matthews with very sloppy passing so far in this game. Wilson needs to see who else works with Matthews Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Charlie McAvoy Note McAvoy and Fortunato is a nice pairing, I see the synergy in their game as well as playing together at BU often Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Timo Meier Note Lack of high-end talent was visible in this game with the Swiss team obviously outmatched, but his 2-way game and elite level motor and compete level was there all game long. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Sweden (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Alex Nedeljkovic Note Nedeljkovic has been the difference. Kept the USA in it until the team could settle down and get their feet under them. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Alex Nedeljkovic Note Neds' movements are so quick. NHL-level recovery. Giving USA a chance when they are being outplayed. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Alex Nedeljkovic Note Nedeljkovic standing tall in the last minute. Closed the door to any idea of a Canada comeback. Solid game from him, USA could go far with him playing like that. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Nick Schmaltz Note Schmaltz with a nice shift with 5 minutes left. I think he has been the most consistent forward for USA thus far. Zachary DeVine USA vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Dmytro Timashov Note Ball of effort and talent all game long. pushed possePsion all game long. Shifty good skater, didn’t take many big hits. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Sweden (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015

Linus Soderstrom Summary Linus Sodorstrom (18 Shots, 15 Saves) Should have had more saves. Not sharp in this game, Felix Sandstrom had a stomach bug and overall belief is Soderstrom got the start because of it. Had a few good stops but two of the goals exposed his poor lateral play that was a knock on him coming into the tournament Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Sweden (WJC 2016) Stream 12/26/2015
Rudolfs Balcers Note Puts an elbow into Bracco's face and will sit for most of the rest of the third period. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Latvia (WJC 2017) Live 12/26/2016

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

Thomas Chabot Note Sensational defensive shift in which he had to move out high to cover for a low forward, then recognized the flow out of the corner, stepped down to take the releasing opponent as a 2-on-1 began to develop, and cut past the puckcarrier to take the play away from both attackers and completely disrupt the play Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016

Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Sets up in front of the net on the powerplay, works well to keep his spot, then goes for a loose puck behind the net, fights a 50/50 battle, the finds Barzal for a chip shot past the goalie. Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016

Thomas Chabot Summary Impressive in all aspects of the game. He has the size at 6'2, 190 pounds, is exemplary on his feet in all four directions, smart at both ends, reads the play in front of him and does not overcommit on the play. On top of the that, he has really good hands, as well. A top-pair NHL defender in the making Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Summary Unless one was watching closely, it would be easy to say that Dubois was off his game, and he likely was a bit. But the skill and effort were there in bright moments. Big, intelligent player with high-end vision and skills and a willingness to use his body to make a play. Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Denis Guryanov Summary Physical, two-way player with quickness and hands, but a tendancy to step over the line at times. He looks like a good middle-six forward, but I haven't seen high-level offensive instincts yet. Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Tyson Jost Summary Jost is so dynamic on the ice, a nonstop attacker whether he has the puck or not. Tremendous skater with a top-end three-step burst, extremely agile and smart. Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016

Philippe Myers Summary Myers is a big defender at 6'5, 207 pounds, and his skating is above average or better. There are aspects of his game at this point that make me less optimistic than many commentators after his play thus far in the WJCs and at Philadelphia's camp in the fall. His decisions were questionable in several instances in this game, and he was often out of position on the ice. This player could be sizzling now, but is it long-term heat? I'm not sure at this point. Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Mikhail Sergachev Summary Incredibly strong on his skates and positionally sound, a combination that makes forwards hesitant to go near him on the ice. He is a granite 6'3 and 216 pounds and he is still only 18, with balance and leg strength that allows him to absorb big hits from big players and send the them to the ice. He also has excellent up-ice vision and shot. Sergachev will be in the NHL by the time he is 20. Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016

Joni Ortio Summary Joni Ortio is regressing after last year's successful venture across the pond. He has been pulled in two of three viewings this season.

Ivan Provorov Note Provorov showing good poise, knowing the clock is running down, activates in a shorthanded situation for a great chance on net as time expires. Heady play. Zachary DeVine Russia vs. Belarus (WJC 2016) Stream 12/29/2015
Noah Rod Note Rod levels Konecny, has blocked a few shots, doing a lot of dirty work in this game. Does what it takes on his shifts. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/29/2015
Noah Rod Note Rod with a powerplay goal. Might have gone in off Hicketts (again) He is the second coming of Dino Ciccerelli. Great shot to get it on net, Malgin with the cross-ice pass. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/29/2015
Ryan Murphy Note Not sure if it has been two misfires, but Murphy does not seem to shoot the puck hard at all. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Ryan Murphy Note Murphy with good read to intercept pass and get over to his winger for a one-timer. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Ryan Murphy Note Murphy has had some interesting defensive positioning all game. It has not hurt him yet, but bad habits. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Ryan Murphy Note Murphy lacks intensity in his play, passes are sloppy and seems to be sluggish. Slow release on snap and wrist shots, there is not much mustard on his shot. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Ryan Murphy Note Lots of sheltered minutes for Murphy. It has been noticeable. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Ryan Murphy Note Murphy with a weak board play allows the Barracuda into the zone with 30 seconds to go in the 3rd. Soft. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Sergi Tolchinsky Note Tolchinsky is built like a tree stump. First shift strips the puck for a dangerous chance after circling around the net afterdeking two Cuda players. Then takes a big hit from Carpenter and is shaken up. Looks taller than the 5’9 I have heard/read about him. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Sergi Tolchinsky Note Tolchinsky just did it to the Cuda. Streaking down the right wing, the left shot beats everyone for a mini breakaway, cuts to the center and plain beats Dell with the quick release to the blocker side. Good play, better shot. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Sergi Tolchinsky Note Quick and shifty, was able to get away from a hard charging Stollery Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Sergi Tolchinsky Note Tolchinsky not out on PP much, seems he would be an ideal PP candidate. His first few steps quickly get him up to attack speed. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Sergi Tolchinsky Note Tolchinsky with a perfect pass from behind the net to the breaking Jake Chelios for a one-timer past Dell. Mueller caught looking. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Sergi Tolchinsky Note Tolchinsky not sent out on the SO, again odd. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Daniel Altshuller Summary Daniel Altshuller is a prospect whose rise from reach pick to solid prospect has been the result of hard work. A number of scouts and writers have taken note of Altshuller in the past few years. After solid numbers in his second ECHL season, was called up to the Checkers and did not look out of place in this viewing. Pro sized at 6’3 and 205 pounds, displayed high end reflexes and puck tracking. There are a few technical issues that need sorting out, but a goalie to keep an eye on as he develops. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Petter Emanuelsson Summary Pettter Emanuelsson needs to be a bit more patient. He has a good shot, but rips it off every chance. Has had time and space and not used it. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Erik Karlsson Summary The other Erik Karlsson is often muscled off the puck, but skates well. He does not have the taste for North American physical play and seemed out of sorts all night. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Nikita Jevpalovs Summary Nikita Jevpalovs shows good ice awareness. Often looking around the ice to make sure he is in defensive position, marking opposing forwards. In a game he was not helping the offense, Jevpalovs made sure he was not a liability for the Barracuda. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Mirco Mueller Summary Mirco Mueller with a number of ill-advised handcuffing pass to his partner. Area of concern as this keeps happening game in and game out. His skating will only carry him so far, his vision on the breakout is lacking and needs a great amount of development. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Ryan Murphy Summary Ryan Murphy is a project as a NHL defenseman. Offensively creative, but a questionable shot and soft passes. Was sheltered in his zone starts, and did not display a compete level of a player of his reputation. Needs to display a professional game based on hard work to mix with his talent to get into a full-time NHL job. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Sergi Tolchinsky Summary A player that was not drafted but signed as a UFA with the Hurricanes, his development can be characterized as on track. Sergi Tolchinsky returned to the Greyhounds and had another solid season in his draft +1 year. \Looking bigger and thicker than his 5’8” and 170 pound listed stats, Tolchinsky is transitioning well into the professional game. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/29/2015
Andrei Svechnikov Note Liking Svechnikov’s compete level overall. Working hard to retrieve pucks, could use some more physical presence on the boards, but at least he is in there going for the play. Zachary DeVine Russia vs Switzerland (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/3/2016
Christian Dvorak Note Dvorak with one touch pass from Marner, fakes backhand shot and slides it in for a London goal. That line just needs a mistake and can take over. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Logan Brown Note underwhelming in effort. skating doesn’t look to be a strength thus far in the game Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015

Logan Brown Note Stanley quiet in the 1st. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015

Logan Brown Note Brown with his second inspired shift of the game and is very noticeable with his hands and size, needs to keep his foot on the gas. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Logan Brown Note Mete was able to steer Logan Brown away from powering to the net. Mete is 8” and 44 pounds less. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015

Max Jones Note Jones coming off his skates a lot. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015

Matthew Tkachuk Note Marner to Dvorak to Tkachuk and leads to a tap in for the backside defneseman. Talented forward line. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Christian Dvorak Summary Dvorak with 2+2, great well rounded game from him Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Logan Brown Summary All hype and no substance, Logan Brown is falling down my board. Skills are there for a few shifts a game and the rest of the game he is invisible Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Mitch Marner Summary Marner looks bored. So talented, gets away with anything he wants. His line likely could dominate play at the AHL level, there was very little even a skilled defensive team like Windsor could do to stop them. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Max Jones Summary Jones was all over the ice but not much offensive upside displayed. Skating was very good, and when deployed with Pu it was a havoc causing line. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Victor Mete Summary The CHL’s version of Joey LaLeggia, a lot has to go right in his development to have a shot. Did not like his defensive play at all, and one wonders how he would do on a team that didn’t have 5-8 top 90 prospects. Not a fan. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Tyler Parsons Summary Parsons challenges shooters well. overplays at time, but playing well. good reflexes, feet are a bit busy. quick legs Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Cliff Pu Summary Immense skating skill, good hands but so-so hockey sense and vision. Limited offense capability makes a low ceiling for the prospect but very toolsy. Could develop further with high end skating ability. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Mikhail Sergachev Summary Segrachev played seemingly half the game against this very deep and talented London team and still contributed 2 goals to the losing effort. Quickly becoming a top defenseman at the top end of the 1st round. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Logan Stanley Summary Just don’t like Logan Stanley’s game. Sam Morin’s long lost brother. Do not see this one being much without major work. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Matthew Tkachuk Summary Showed it all tonight. Fast, nasty, talented, big. He is his father's son. Power forward in the making with everything you need in a forward. Top pick worthy on every front. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Julius Bergman Note Bergman with a poorly played 2-on-1 leads to a goal, struggling this game all around. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin with a mediocre shift to start. Hope he shows some fire tonight Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Quiet first period for Goldobin. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin should be taking this game over. Poor decisions, lazy passes, he just does not look like he is that interested in hockey. I have seen a dozen games of his and have never seen any drive from him. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin showing some life on the PP. Back-to-back passes that lead to scoring chances. Gets moving again on a shift to dish to the center. Would like to see more killer instinct from him, has a good shot and needs to use it. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Barclay Goodrow Note Goodrow with his second goal of the game, driving the net. Has a lot of good habits and I think is a bottom-six NHLer for a few hundred games. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Barclay Goodrow Note Goodrow with the overtime winner to complete the hat trick. Should be playing with Sharks in place of Mike Brown. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Barclay Goodrow Note Goodrow with a pass/chest bump/water-bottle-knocker goal? Looking good this game, multi-tool player Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Barclay Goodrow Note Goodrow had a very complete game. Solid in all three zones, invoved physically, drive play. Three goals and +4 on the night Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Nikita Jevpalovs Note Jevpalovs was not active in this game. Less and less icetime as the game moved on, wasn't on his game tonight. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note LaLeggia doesn't really inspire much as a forward for me. I thought he was much more dangerous Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note LaLeggia is easily being moved off pucks at forward. Seems totally unnatural and it shows. I think it a mistake. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note Joey definitely playing the left wing, deployed on the Slepyshev line with Yakimov on the right wing. Great passing by the line leads to a 2-on-1 with LaLeggia hitting the right post coming on his offwing. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note Bit of an adventure, having trouble with assignments. Liked him better on defense. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Joey LaLeggia Note LaLeggia on the point for the PP2 squad, gets a dangerous puck on net. Stays on on the right wing with Yakimov. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Anton Slepyshev Note Slepyshev has jump to his step early in the first Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Anton Slepyshev Note Haven't noticed Slepyshev in a while. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Bogdan Yakimov Note Yakimov with nifty play to get puck to Slepyshev for dangerous chance early in the first period. Skating well. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Bogdan Yakimov Note Yakimov in a much better showing, using size to lean in on defense and get the puck to the net. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Bogdan Yakimov Note Skating better, feet are moving, active stick. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Summary Continues to show very little drive to use his skills to contribute in a meaningful way. Has the skills to impact the scoreboard, but simply won’t get into gear. Flashes of his vision, shot and creativity are shown then the lackadaisical side takes over for a period Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Barclay Goodrow Summary Once again with a solid, honest, north/south game. Scored a hat trick with a dominating performance. Ready for the NHL in a bottom-six role with the potential to develop into a middle line role.  Work ethic continues to be a dominating trait but hands are decent and shows some creativity as well. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Troy Grosenick Summary In a 6-7 win, Grosenick got the W but had a hard game. Overplayed the puck at times and didn't let the play/puck come to him. Got very little defensive help and was left out to dry on a number of plays. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Joey LaLeggia Summary Deployed as a forward and his talents were wasted. A player this size takes a lifetime to develop a way to work around their stature, and throwing him out as a forward was a waste. Not sure if this was desperation due to all the call-ups or an actual thing the Oilers are trying with LaLeggia, but either way it needs to stop. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Ben Scrivens Summary Scrivens has forgotten how to play goalie. Confidence has to be shattered, looked absolutely lost, dazed and confused. Routine saves turned into adventures and ultimately goals. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Anton Slepyshev Summary A very quiet game. Started the game with a big first shift and then went off the radar. In a game with six goals scored, he didn’t figure into the scoring at all. Only one serious chance on net. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Bogdan Yakimov Summary Much improved skating, more than any other viewing. The best game I have seen from the big Russian and renews my hope for him. Zachary DeVine Bakersfield vs San Jose (AHL) Live 12/5/2015
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin forechecks, incepts the pass and makes a great feed to O’Regan for a chance on net. Big shift. Zachary DeVine Stockton at San Jose (AHL) Live 12/8/2016
Marcus Sorensen Note Sorensen battles in front of the net but seems to forget stick positioning. Zachary DeVine Stockton at San Jose (AHL) Live 12/8/2016
Timo Meier Note Meier feeds Goldobin but the Russian heels it. Zachary DeVine Stockton at San Jose (AHL) Live 12/8/2016
Joakim Ryan Note Good quick stick by Ryan to thwart the self pass. If he misses that, he was caught. Desperation play, but smart and it worked Zachary DeVine Stockton at San Jose (AHL) Live 12/8/2016
Alex Schoenborn Note Schoenborn gets body position and gets a chance on GIllies. Zachary DeVine Stockton at San Jose (AHL) Live 12/8/2016
JD Greenway Note Awkward giveaway in own zone. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
JD Greenway Note Solid passer, makes good reads and is poised with the puck Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
JD Greenway Note His reach takes away so much space in the middle of the defensive zone, and he has the smarts to be in the right place Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
JD Greenway Note Big long strides generate decent speed, went hard to get back to stop a 2-on-1, but overskated his defensive responsibility and left Piazza open in front of the net for a goal. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
JD Greenway Note Great play one-on-one to deny a scoring chance and then poke the puck clear to a teammate. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
JD Greenway Note Gave the puck away behind his own net, a sloppy play up 6-3. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note A little slow in his hips flipping to backwards skating. Takes a small hop to add speed to the pivot, but that won't work at the higher levels of hockey. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note Quiet most of the game, but then he's alone in the high slot on a 3-on-2 and there is no doubt. Sniper. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note Pro shot with a tricky release, he is good at disguising the release point and leaves the goaltender frozen. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note Lots of movement while on the powerplay, but more floating than determined. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note Great backcheck effort to disrupt a Lockwood shorthanded breakaway. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Will Lockwood Note Really light on his feet, showing easy, fluid motion and a quick burst. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Will Lockwood Note Good solid check in the boards, packed a wallop with little build up. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016

Will Lockwood Note Lockwood is the best player on the ice so far in the first period. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Will Lockwood Note Another big hit, but this one gets called for boarding, but it was a marginal call at best. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Will Lockwood Note I could watch Lockwood play hockey all day. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016

Will Lockwood Note Yet another offensive zone hit. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Martin Note Active stick, but follows the puck and loses his man who then gets to the net for a goal. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Martin Note Paying too much attention to the puck and not enough to his man. Allows a bad bounce to be put into the back of his net. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Martin Note Really active stick on D Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016

Luke Martin Note Pretty one-timer snap shot for a goal. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Michael Pastujov Note Heavy feet Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Michael Pastujov Note Poor pass to try to clear his own zone, just a poorly executed bad idea. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Michael Pastujov Note Two smart passes on a shift, the first begins a breakout, the second deep in the offensive zone puts the puck on a teammate's stick in the high-danger area Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Michael Pastujov Note He'll get physical, but not a lot of hockey IQ on display in this game outside of the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Seamus Malone Note Dives to break up a zone entry pass with four minutes left and a two-goal lead. What effort! Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Seamus Malone Note Horrible blind pass along his offensive blue line straight to a Michigan player. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Seamus Malone Note Lacks pace in his game, and although he's in constant motion, he seems aimless at times and tends to meander without efficiency in his movement Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Seamus Malone Note Nice hands to dangle and find an open man in front of the net. Nice play. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Seamus Malone Note Beautiful one-touch pass leads to a wrap-around goal. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Seamus Malone Note Gets boarded with a nasty hit, gets up immediately and chirps the opposing bench on his way to his own. Tough kid. That was a game misconduct and a five-minute major worthy of the call. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Seamus Malone Note Poor cross-ice pass lacked zip and accuracy. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Seamus Malone Note Spinerama pass right on Bessie's tape, who promptly misses the net. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
JD Greenway Summary A bit raw, Greenway needs to continue to work on his game, but he has all the tools to be a good NHL defenseman. Big, long arms and legs, smart reads in all three zones, but can be a bit sloppy at times. Future middle-pair NHL blueliner, though. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Summary Two goals in the game, both from his deadly mid-distance wrist shot. Seems to lack a high compete level, which bothers me. I want to see him go harder on every shift instead of waiting for the play to come to him. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Will Lockwood Summary Michigan is not the best team, but Lockwood was the best player on the ice. Constant, aggressive play in all three zones, effective with and without the puck. Excellent footwork, dilligent in getting the puck away from the opposition and to his teammates. Dangerous on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Martin Summary Martin looks like a player that could develop nicely into a two-way defenseman at the NHL level. He plays smart offense, but many times was caught puck chasing in his own end. Needs a couple of years to develop more of the finer aspects of his game and remove some bad habits. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Martin Necas Summary Necas is a smaller, shifty player that is listed at under 150 pounds on EliteProspects.com but looks thicker than that, but not by much. His play against men in the top Czech league has been good in two viewings and shows a good nose for the puck. He isn’t afraid of attempting to put a hit on the opposition, but it usually isn’t that effective due to his lack of size. His skating is slightly above average but has good fluid transitions. More power could be used in his stride. His hands and vision both look very good and despite not seeing top six minutes, has generated at least two good looks for himself and his teammates in both games. Necas has physical limitations at this time, but smart play helps minimize their effects. He has been named to the preliminary WJC roster for the Czech Republic and it will be very interesting to see how he does against players of similar size and development. Zachary DeVine Kometa Brno vs Mountfield (CZE) Stream 12/9/2016
Michael Pastujov Summary I've seen Pastujov play better than he did in this game. He made some good plays with his hands, but his legs looked tired and he did not seem fully integrated into the game. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Seamus Malone Summary Hands and offensive instincts, but not a lot else on display in the game. Good work rate, though. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Ivan Barbashev Note Barbashev blocks a heavy shot. Totally sold out on the block. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Oliver Bjorkstrand Note Bjorkstrand needs to add muscle. The men in the AHL give him trouble, but his vision and skills are still able to be displayed. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Oliver Bjorkstrand Note Bjorkstrand muscled off the puck twice on the same play. It’s a pattern. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Oliver Bjorkstrand Note Bjorkstrand poke checked by Binnington at the last possible second. Danced through two Wolves defenders for a dangerous chance. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Ty Rattie Note Needs to keep his feet moving, he isn’t a great skater, and when he is flat footed, he isn’t helping. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Ty Rattie Note Rattie with a sharp angle chance to snap the puck in, Theissen gets a skate blade on it. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Ty Rattie Note Rattie is a smart player, plays on the PP and the PK, has had chances. Could likely be in the NHL if his skating was just average. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Ty Rattie Note Rattie nearly wraps around the net but Thiessen again barely saves it. Rattie could easily have two goals in this game. Offensive skills not a question. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Daniel Zaar Note Zaar has some fast mitts. Able to do some great things with the puck at speed and under pressure. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Daniel Zaar Note Zaar skates well, good acceleration. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016

Daniel Zaar Note Zaar to Bjorkstrand nearly makes it 3-0 Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Ivan Barbashev Summary Barbashev plays a very North American game. Does everything well overall, defensively aware of his assignments, plays well in a team system. There isn’t a glaring hole in his game talent-wise. Development can be considered on track. The knock has been inconsistent efforts at time and this appeared to be one of those games for him. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Oliver Bjorkstrand Summary Bjorkstrand exhibits excellent vision on the ice with a mixture of situational awareness and puck skills. His skating ability is an asset to his game and has acceptable size, but had a few instances when knowing better how to use his frame would have benefited him. Still figuring out the nuances in the professional game, but will likely challenge for ice time in Columbus soon. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Dillon Heatherington Summary The 50th overall pick of 2013 draft, Heatherington isn’t going to light up the scoreboard and he hasn’t at any level of play. But at 6’2 and 220 pounds, he is a sizable stay-at-home defenseman. Defensively astute at only 20 years of age, he logs big minutes for Lake Erie including on the penalty kill. Clears the crease and boxes out forwards with authority. Solid skating and an active stick rounds out an impressive defensive package. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Sonny Milano Summary Milano is constantly moving. Either to an open area to receive a pass, into a scoring position, a likely rebound area or just doing well finding open ice to help his squad. He is moving up the boards as far as talented prospects to watch and in all probability moving to the top of the Blue Jackets prospect list. Milano has taken big steps this year and improvement is noticeable. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Ty Rattie Summary The issue with Ty Rattie has always been his skating, which now--five years after his draft year--is best described as passing. No one can doubt his smarts or his hands. Any time he is near the net, he is dangerous. At 23 years of age, he has been passed by younger Blues prospects, but in 11 NHL games in the 2015-16 season has posted 5 points. If his skating can continue to improve and not expose him, he likely will get a serious look at the Blue training camp ahead of the 2016-17 season. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Daniel Zaar Summary A player that I have been high on since his draft year, it is excellent to see Zaar developing as he has, realizing the talent that was seen in him early. He is adjusting fine to North American play and his skating is much improved, but could still use attention. Above average two-way game and a heavy accurate shot matches with a puck handling skills in traffic and under pressure. Still will need time in the AHL, but likely ahead of the curve as far as development. Zachary DeVine Chicago vs Lake Erie (AHL) Stream 2/11/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols is a rough, plodding skater. Flat footed a lot of the time, not an active stick or position defensively. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols gets a goal standing off to the right of the net. Hard to move a player of that size. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Patrick Bajkov Note Bajkov plays smart. Moves to a good position to support the play both defensively and offensively. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Patrick Bajkov Note Bajkov with a nice play to keep the puck in the zone as the penalty expires, then is in front providing a screen as the shot from the point comes in. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Patrick Bajkov Note Bajkov shows good awareness on the PK. Pressured the man on the point and returned to position when the play moved. Has an active stick on the ice, both hands on the stick. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Patrick Bajkov Note Bajkov’s puck protection skills draw a penalty. If he has some true offensive flair he could be much higher. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Jake Christensen Note Christiansen scores on odd misplay at the blue line and Skoleski slides it over for a deflection to the back of the net past Hill. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar gets a shot, passes the puck across the crease, and a dangerous sequence. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar has good movement laterally. Skating speed is good. Shifty player, which you like to see in the smaller players. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar still learning the smaller man's game. Trying to hit but hasn’t figured out how to leverage larger players out of the play, but angles are good. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar tips two pucks on the PP, one on net. Small and feisty. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar with a shorthanded attempt. Like his compete level, and when mixed with his very good skating, has made a number of dangerous plays in the offensive zone. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Cody Glass Note Glass out to take a draw. Playing as a true center. Impressive for a young player like that. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Carter Hart Note Hart squeezes the pads on a tricky deflection. Tracking the puck well. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016

Noah Juulsen Note Juulsen activates and a heavy shot goes over the net. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Noah Juulsen Note Juulsen is out every other shift. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Noah Juulsen Note Juulsen just smart. Subtle plays, defensively calm. So much better in person. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Yan Khomenko Note Yan Khomenko walks in, nice hands to get a chance on hill. Comes back on backcheck and lifts a stick. Nice shift Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Rodrigo Abols Summary Abols looks like a big kid still getting used to being 6’5. His edge work is sloppy, but decent straight-line speed and ok stride. With questionable skating, he needs to keep his feet moving. A few times he was caught coasting when a burst of speed to provide an outlet or support the puck would have been a better decision. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Patrick Bajkov Summary Bajkov is a player who has all the tangible skills but is missing the offensive ability to be considered a top prospect. Played hard tonight and was deployed in a variety of situations. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Caleb Jones Summary Caleb Jones not on the scoresheet but makes good, fast decisions with the puck. Sees the ice really well and haven’t seen a bad pass or play from him all night. Steady play all around. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Connor Dewar Summary Dewar played well and was the a noticeable forward for Everett. Not the biggest player at 5’10, he was still active with physical play. Played well in high traffic areas, constantly in front of the net. Would have liked to see him with his stick on the ice a bit more if he is going to play this style of game. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Cody Glass Summary Glass responsible in the defensive zone picks up a misplayed pass and gets it safely out of danger. Good support. Shows he knows where he needs to be. Physically was removed from the play a few times, but played smart overall. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Carter Hart Summary Hart with good economy of movement. He drops to the butterfly a little too early, but seals the posts well. Lateral movement is sound and doesn’t take himself out of position. Solid glove hand and excellent reflexes. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Noah Juulsen Summary One knock on Juulsen is he has been passing the puck a bit much, could have carried into the zone a few times specifically tonight. Skating is excellent and on-ice awareness is as well. Pressure by forecheckers never phased him, impressive overall game even in the loss. Zachary DeVine Everett vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/12/2016
Patrick Bajkov Note Bajkov had a nice opportunity but stopped to settle the puck. Needs to be quicker with his chances. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Patrick Bajkov Note Bajkov misses a golden opportunity with 30 seconds left. Heels the puck. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Patrick Bajkov Note Bajkov nearly gets the equalizer. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Brycen Martin Note Martin’s carelessness with the puck leads to another icing. Almost turned over the puck by leaving it behind the net for a forechecker. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Brycen Martin Note Martin again just whacks at the puck, not much composure with it on his stick. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Brycen Martin Note Martin does a strange hop to pivot to back-skating and cannot accelerate well because of it. Skating needs work. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar has blocked two big shots. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar with a quick shot on goal on the PP. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Noah Juulsen Note Juulsen carries the puck and maintains possession. Not just outlet passes, but actively driving possession and aiding the rush. Also has a bomb from the point. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Noah Juulsen Note Juulsen’s transitions from forward to back are smooth. Easily gets around from defend to attack. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Tyler Soy Note Short handed, Soy on the breakaway that is stopped. His skating created that chance for him and then backchecks and lifts a stick on the PK. Solid shift. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Tyler Soy Note Soy stops on a dime and quickly gets going the other way. Has created time and space for himself twice by this move. High-end skating ability. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Tyler Soy Note Soy’s speed gets him an empty net goal to close it out. His second goal of the night. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Patrick Bajkov Summary Bajkov was more energetic than usual tonight and skating with purpose. Had a number of good scoring chances that his good skating and hard work created. Needs to make quicker decisions with the puck overall. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Brycen Martin Summary Brycen Martin was careless with the puck. Passes were not crisp and shots were often into shin pads. Skating needs some attention as well, especially laterally and pivots. Not his best game, but has some upside. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Connor Dewar Summary Dewar was a bit more quiet in this game than previous viewings, but was still deployed often and was skating hard. Defensively one of his better games blocking two big shots and harassing the points. Played well away from the puck in a game his team was trailing, which is good to see from a younger player. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Carter Hart Summary Hart tracking the puck very well. Tips, deflections, broken plays and sticks: he is seeing it all. Not getting a ton of support defensively, but kept the Silvertips in the game. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Joe Hicketts Summary Hicketts has a compete level that is hard to match. His best play was two poke checks from his stomach, gets the puck and rifles a shot over the net. Does not give an inch anywhere on the ice. Took himself out of position trying to make big hits, but it’s something he needs to keep in his game at his height. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Noah Juulsen Summary Even in the losing effort, Juulsen had a very good game. He carried the puck better tonight and maintains possession. His skills with the puck are not just outlet passes, but actively driving possession and aiding the rush. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Griffen Outhouse Summary The WHL rookie was very impressive in the 28-save shutout. Nothing was glaring about his game, played with poise and confidence all night long. Had a few scrambles in front of his net, but sealed the ice. Outhouse made a number of strong saves en route to his fourth shutout in only 21 games played. His save percentage is a spectacular .940. The Royals played will in front of him tonight, but he was great when called upon. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Ryan Peckford Summary Peckford not doing much besides coasting. Seemed disconnected all game. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Tyler Soy Summary Soy is talented but motor isn’t very high. Zero physical involvement during the game. Acceleration and edge work is excellent. Had two goals and four golden scoring chances, all of which resulted from his skating ability. No physical game. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Everett (WHL) Live 2/13/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols drives the right wing, centers but no teammate can get a stick on it, keeps at it and still gets a SOG after stripping the puck from a Royal. Good shift. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols dangles in and gets the puck to a teammate, drives the middle to open space. Smart play. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols on the backcheck with the Royals threatening, gets in a passing lane and intercepts. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols with another good hands play for a dangerous chance that is blocked. Liking how he is seeing the ice tonight. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Nice touch by Abols on a saucer pass that eludes a well-positioned Royal defender on the blue line. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Alex Forsberg Note Forsberg nice rush, but gets poked checked away at the blue line. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Alex Forsberg Note Forsberg backhand to start the 2nd goes behind Hill but off the post. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016

Alex Forsberg Note Forseberg looking more involved early. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Alexander True Note True having a hard time covering the point guys. Lateral movement is hard for him. Straight line player. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Alexander True Note True isn’t flexible or something. Hunched over skating style that is very stiff. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Mathew Barzal Note Barzal loses the puck at the blue line trying a bit too much. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Mathew Barzal Note Barzal moving well. Side steps the big hits. Hicketts went to line him up and missed. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Mathew Barzal Note Barzal’s passing is on point early. Goal by Holowko on the cross ice feed by Kolesar. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Mathew Barzal Note Bazal's skating is excellent. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Mathew Barzal Note Bazal’s skating is shifty. Royals are trying hard to get a body on him and it’s not going as well as planned. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Ethan Bear Note Bear blocks the centering pass from Soy on the PK. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Ethan Bear Note Bear handles the puck well in all situations. Uses stick handling to both avoid danger and draw in attackers. Impressive 2015 5th rounder (EDM) Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Ethan Bear Note Bear has powerful backward strides, smooth crossovers. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016

Ethan Bear Note Defensive battle, and Ethan Bear is standing out in a tight-checking game. Smart plays with the puck and smart physical play. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Ethan Bear Note Ethan Bear is doing it all. Out on the power play, rifles a shot past the Royals goalie who simply got beat. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Caleb Jones Note Jones rubs out Soy to eliminate him, joins the play going the other way and beats Outhouse to win the game. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Caleb Jones Note Jones with two clearing attempts intercepted. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Caleb Jones Note Had the game-winning goal on a smart defensive play: Rubs Tyler Soy out on the boards in order to seperate the man from the puck, skates out of the zone, smart pass to a winger, drives the net to pot the game winner. Jones isn’t as dynamic as his brother, but the hockey smarts are there and he is a very good skater. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Joe Hicketts Note Hicketts boxes out Alex True. Loses a lot in size and weight but got the job done. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016

Keegan Iverson Note Iverson with a huge hit. Good, solid and clean. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016

Turner Ottenbreit Note Turner Ottenbreit saves a goal tying up Walker's stick. Has played well in his own zone tonight, a few noticeable nice plays. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Griffen Outhouse Note Outhouse overplays to his stick side, ends up way outside Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Griffen Outhouse Note Outhouse tracking the puck with heavy traffic in front of him. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Griffen Outhouse Note Schoenborn rings one off the post. Outhouse has only faced a half dozen shot attempts, two shots on goal in the first twelve minutes of play. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Griffen Outhouse Note Even in the loss, Outhouse has skill that should be noticed by scouts. He plays a solid game, and makes the save as opposed to just blocking the puck. Doesn’t have great size, but adequate. A handful of times he would save the puck and then put it back into play, which I feel shows an overall confidence. Some team could be very happy with a late round steal that some will call “off the board.” Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Ryan Peckford Note Peckford scores on the powerplay. Greasy goal. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Ryan Peckford Note Peckford pick up the puck and a quick shot off the mask of Hill. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Tyler Soy Note Soy does the tow drag every time he can. Predictible. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Tyler Soy Note Soy often hanging out near the Portland blue line. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Tyler Soy Note Soy takes the puck off the half wall, makes a great move around Sculdhaus and goes short side on Flodell for the goal. Hell of a shot. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Tyler Soy Note Soy without the puck is not inspired. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Tyler Soy Note Soy’s play away from the puck leaves everything to be desired. Tried to get out of the way of the Bear shot. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Tyler Soy Note Soy cuts in from the middle and defelcts the puck over the net. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Keegan Iverson Sumary Iverson was a physical presence that factored into the game in a variety of ways. Royals were very aware when he was on the ice, but not much offensive upside was displayed. Work ethic did not wane at all during the game. Very good skating ability as well. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Rodrigo Abols Summary Moving much better in the afternoon game, Abols showed decent skating with good hockey sense. Played a solid two-way game, but displayed more of a touch on the puck than seen previously. Has moved up in the 2016 draft rankings for me, solid middle-round pick with size and serviceable hands. Skating will be a work in progress. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Alex Forsberg Summary Played an engaged, two-way game with offensive ability, but lacked polish. As a 21-year-old in his fourth WHL season, more is expected of Forsberg. Was at least active in this game, previous viewings have not been positive, some without a single note. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Mathew Barzal Summary I have watched Barzal quite a bit, and his consistency is amazing. He brings it every game, and you know what you get: a hard, smooth-skating center with vision, puck skills and drive. His teammates would force feed him the puck at times, but more often than not, he got something done with the puck even if the Royals knew who the puck was going to. Impressive player, can’t wait to see him in the NHL. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Ethan Bear Summary Wildly impressed with Ethan Bear. His best play of the night: his active stick takes the puck from Donovan Neuls and with quick mitts gets the puck up the ice to a winger, out of trouble. I said “wow” out loud and the fan next to me says “I know!” in agreement. Solid in all areas, time on the PP, solid skating and powerful backward stride, stick handling is able to both dance around attackers and defenders depending on need. Positionally knew where to be and broke up two plays on the PK that were dangerous. Fantastic viewing. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Joe Hicketts Summary Hicketts with a handful of solid hits tonight. Keeping himself in position, as well. It was the Royals third road game in three nights and he looked to be a bit winded towards the end of the game. Victoria leaned hard on him, and he doesn’t takes shift off. Took himself out of position a few times trying to make hits, but I like that he is looking to make physical contact. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Joe Hicketts Summary Joe Hicketts was a man on a physical mission. Took himself out of position a few times making (or trying to make) a hit. His compete level is without question every game, but needs to play within himself as well. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Keegan Kolesar Summary Kolesar with the empty net goal for the hat trick. Gritty, good skating, good size and showed a good touch. Over a point per game this season, laid some hits. Skates well for a big and heavy man. Uses his size effectively to eliminate players along the boards. Had a few defensive lapses but otherwise sound in his own zone all night. Overall, a good player in all zones. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Ryan Peckford Summary Still adjusting to the pace of the WHL, rookie Peckford has projectable size and skates well. Does not look physically out of place, but numerous times in the game he just didn’t process the game at the speed at which it was being played. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Tyler Soy Summary Soy will give up on a play if there is an aggressive move towards him. Easily pushed off the puck with a mean glance. One of the more dangerous players on the ice, but without anything resembling a compete level in multiple viewings, will not factor into a future prospect. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Portland (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Tyler Soy Summary Tyler Soy is an enigma, even in a single viewing. His first few shifts showed signs of life, got his goal, and then anytime he didn’t have the puck, was seemingly not in the mood to play in a hockey game. When he did have the puck, it was like someone flipped a switch and you had to hold onto your seat. Maddening to watch. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Jack Walker Summary Walker buzzing around the ice tonight. Made a number of strong moves to the net. Listed as both a winger and a defenseman, Walker would spend a shift on the power play as a forward and then switch back to defense. His motor was going regardless of score. Solid speed, but not able to stay on his skates in a tight-checking game. Zachary DeVine Victoria vs Seattle (WHL) Live 2/14/2016
Auston Matthews Note Matthews at times will not pivot to keep himself open to the play, will loop around. Zachary DeVine ZSC vs Kloten (NLA) Stream 2/15/2016
Auston Matthews Note Few times this year I have noticed how dangerous his backhand is. Reminds me of Paul Karyia how quickly he can get if off and up. Zachary DeVine ZSC vs Kloten (NLA) Stream 2/15/2016
Auston Matthews Note Matthews able to stickhandle at speed and quick hands keeps defenders at bay. Zachary DeVine ZSC vs Kloten (NLA) Stream 2/15/2016

Auston Matthews Note Matthews shootout attempt deeks the goalie but hits the post. Slick move, no goal. Zachary DeVine ZSC vs Kloten (NLA) Stream 2/15/2016
Pius Suter Note Suter playing an attentive game defensively. Good, sound positioning. Zachary DeVine ZSC vs Kloten (NLA) Stream 2/15/2016
Pius Suter Note Suter does not appear to have a high level motor. Good amount of coasting. Zachary DeVine ZSC vs Kloten (NLA) Stream 2/15/2016
Pius Suter Note Suter not a fast skater. Speed is adequate at best, but heady player uses it the best he can, mitigating the damage. Zachary DeVine ZSC vs Kloten (NLA) Stream 2/15/2016
Jonas Siegenthaler Note Skating is exceptional. Smooth, powerful stride, fluid in the hips, can pivot and changes directions or move laterally with seemingly zero effort. Ability to stay on the attacker is due largely to good defensive smarts paired with the gifted skating. Zachary DeVine ZSC vs Kloten (NLA) Stream 2/15/2016
Jonas Siegenthaler Note Good move to the center of the ice, Siegenthaler’s shot/pass is tipped to tie the game. Smart play. Zachary DeVine ZSC vs Kloten (NLA) Stream 2/15/2016
Auston Matthews Summary Held off the scoresheet but dangerous on nearly every shift. Was impressed with his stick handling at speed, not just lugging the puck up ice. Still needs more physical strength, smaller men were able to use angles and leverage on hm a number of times. Zachary DeVine ZSC vs Kloten (NLA) Stream 2/15/2016
Pius Suter Summary Concerns continue with Suter's skating and overall motor. His positioning is generally sound, but didn’t see much in this game that would move the needle much from Suter’s WJC performances. Zachary DeVine ZSC vs Kloten (NLA) Stream 2/15/2016
Jonas Siegenthaler Summary Overall played an excellent game. Deployed in all situations and while more offensive in nature, wasn’t out of place defensively either. Took smart chances and support the play well. Excellent skater, uses this ability to keep tight gaps. Zachary DeVine ZSC vs Kloten (NLA) Stream 2/15/2016

Kieffer Bellows Note Too slow on a backcheck allows a 2-on-1 goal. Bellows should have been there to break that up but wasn't moving his feet Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017
Kieffer Bellows Note Bends his back more than he knees. He needs to do a lot of powerskating training. Choppy strides, not much extension Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017
Kieffer Bellows Note Bellows is a dump-and-chase coach's dream player. Not a big possession game, but he'll flick a puck into the corner and go hard after it Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017
Kieffer Bellows Note A diving, wraparound attempt after collecting his own rebound is the epitome of Bellows' game--not fancy or exciting, but full effort and desire, and the puck goes in off a defender's skate. Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017
Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson Note Anticipates a play and takes a nice pass in for partial breakaway, saved Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017

Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson Summary Although he needs to tighten up his play at times, his skating and strength on his feet are solid. Goes to the net, chases down opponents on the forecheck, makes good decisions in his own end. Needs to protect the puck better. Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017
Tyler Kelleher Summary Plays to small at times, but his shot is way above average. In order to overcome his size disadvantages, he needs to get smarter on the ice when in transition Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017
Clayton Keller Summary Excellent player in all facets of the game. Fast, agile skater, great vision with and without the puck, dangerous all over the ice. Impact player on every shift. Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017
Patrik Laine Note Physical play is measured but part of his game. Certainly a tool he is exhibiting. Zakk Tappara vs Vaansan Sport (Liiga) Stream 2/19/2016
Patrik Laine Note Laine with the overtime winner. Circled the offensive zone like a shark, defenders had to give him room, and shoots from the right face off dot and snaps home the winner. Awesome shot. Zakk Tappara vs Vaansan Sport (Liiga) Stream 2/19/2016
Patrik Laine Note Quiet first period overall for Laine. Only had one good opportunity to get a head of steam. Zakk Tappara vs Vaansan Sport (Liiga) Stream 2/19/2016
Patrik Laine Note Laine as a 17-year-old is a noticeable physical specimen out on the ice. If he didn’t have a number or a name plate, you’d know exactly who he is. Zakk Tappara vs Vaansan Sport (Liiga) Stream 2/19/2016
Patrik Laine Note Laine’s hands allow him time and space, even with a defender right on him. Zakk Tappara vs Vaansan Sport (Liiga) Stream 2/19/2016

Patrik Laine Summary Strong overall game for Laine. His knack for big goals was validated yet again with the OT winner after circling the entire offensive zone, but had a number of solid defensive plays, smart moves in the offensive zone, used his teammates effectively and played well all game. Impressive viewing. Zakk Tappara vs Vaansan Sport (Liiga) Stream 2/19/2016

Morgan Geekie Note Skating looks awkward and lacks power. Slow feet and no push. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017
Morgan Geekie Note Watching his feet closely. His edgework is decent, but average agility and his straightforward skating needs a lot of work. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017
Morgan Geekie Note Up 6-2, gets an unsportsmanlike penalty for arguing an offsides call that cancelled out a breakaway. A 10-minute misconduct that shows his compete and his impulse control. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017

Juuso Valimaki Note Nice 50/50 battle, leans into his opponent then uses his reach to reach out and poke the loose puck to a teammate Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Jaret Anderson-Dolan Summary JAD was the best player on the ice, always controlling the tempo and flow of the play when he was in the ice. High-end vision and passing, a snappy release and highly accurate shot. He is a player to really watch over the next two months. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Mathew Barzal Summary Fast, agile, always has his head up. He was far and away the most talented player on the ice, but he seemed uninspired and disinterested in the game. Disappointed in him this viewing. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Hudson Elynuik Summary Big, hard-working forward with good skills and instincts who is the kind of player coaches always want available to make a play. The offense is there, but he's not a big scorer. His contributions to his NHL team will come in the form of getting and keeping puck possession and tilting the ice in his team's favor. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Morgan Geekie Summary Despite the weak straightline skating, Geekie has the tools to be an NHL player. Smart, good puck skills, plays a refined kind of game in all three zones Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Morgan Geekie Summary Happy to see him two days in a row, because although the holes in his skating are still there, the back-to-back games give a real impression of his game vision and intelligence. Savvy player who anticipates the game at a high level. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Kailer Yamamoto Summary Has all the tools but the size. If he has the puck and a step or two, he can make bad things happen for the other team, but as he moves along in his career, and the opponents get bigger, faster, smarter and more experienced, he could find a wall too high to climb before he hits the NHL. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Keegan Kolesar Summary High energy player with speed and quickness and a nasty edge. Goes hard all the time, and usually leaves some bruises in his wake. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Ty Smith Summary So young to be playing at the level that he is now. Quick with his hands, feet and decisions, and makes good plays look happenstance. There's a lot to like in Smith going forward, and his draft year will be fun to watch. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Juuso Valimaki Summary Valimaki is a different player going forward than he is in his own end. When he has the puck, he has an above average first pass and starts breakouts with ease, but looks even more comfortible skating the puck up ice. On defense, his gaps and positioning are off, and looks really uncomfortable trying to read the play. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Juuso Valimaki Summary Valimaki is a project in his own zone, but with his size, skating and offensive awareness, he can become a good two-way defender in the NHL if he can clean up in the back end. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Jaret Anderson-Dolan Note Working hard on defense, even down 7-0 Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017

Cal Foote Note Locks up his man well in front of the net, ties up his stick, keeps good position Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Cal Foote Note Tries to go D to D on the blue line when the better play was to push the puck into the corner, and the result is a turnover and a rush the other way Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Kole Lind Note Tries to dangle at the blue line and the puck is easily poked away by the defenseman Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017

Nolan Foote Note Strong stride covers a lot of distance Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017

Riley Woods Note Receives a puck inside circle and snaps it five hole. Quick. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Jaret Anderson-Dolan Summary Lopsided game that saw his team down by a touchdown early, yet JAD worked just as hard on every shift throughout. He drives play in all three zones, and brings speed, acceleration and constent attack all over the ice. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Cal Foote Summary Skates and pivots well at his size, and gets to the right spot in his own end. Strong on his feet. Engages in the offense but does not dazzle in any respect of the game. Good tools, though. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Kole Lind Summary Good size, mobile, alert, works hard, but there is a lack of creativity and jump that concerned me in this game. Plays hard, but he looks more like a collection of good parts than a complete package. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Nolan Foote Summary Plays strong and at a good tempo, often looking imposing in the game despite being two years away from his draft year. Looks to be an impact player with his size and abilities. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Miro Aaltonen Note Aaltonen is a quick skater. Acceleration is key part of his game. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016

Andreas Johnson Note Johnson responsible and aware on the ice. Skates well. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016

Jesse Puljujarvi Note Puljujarvi gets up to speed in a few strides, good acceleration. Physically he is having a hard time playing against men. He is in constant motion, making it hard for defenders. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Jesse Puljujarvi Note Puljujarvi with a backhand pass to the slot, right to the activating defenseman. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016

Jesse Puljujarvi Note Puljujarvi’s body position in the corners needs attention. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Miro Aaltonen Summary Solid game for the Ducks prospect. Skating and puck handling is excellent. Aaltonen has always had the skill, but with a few years in Liiga has now matured physically, as well. He has been consistently putting up points and looks ready to play in North America. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Sami Aittokallio Summary One-time farm hand of the Colorado Avalanche now on loan, Aittokallio is aggressive to a fault. Angles are good, but plays beyond the top of the crease. Was good enough in this game, but can’t see that translating. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Andreas Johnson Summary Good skating overall. Moves quietly to the soft parts of the ice, stays open to support the play. Johnson is a player that you don’t always notice, as the subtle things he does denote good hockey sense that isn’t flashy. Can see how his vision and skating can translate to a North American game. His ten points in twelve SHL playoff games was only okay when you compare that to the 25 he put up last year. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Sebastian Aho Summary Aho is a smart hockey player. Looked good all game, smart PK shifts, as well. Wasn’t a huge part of the championship game, but solid play for three periods in a high-stakes game is a skill itself. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016
Jesse Puljujarvi Summary Puljujarvi's worst game in all viewings. Just couldn’t get going, the puck often rolled off his stick and he simply looked clumsy when called on upon to make a play. One game doesn’t move the needle, but this was a noticeable off day. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Frolunda (SHL) Stream 2/8/2016

Thomas Novak Note Novak has good vision in the offensive zone. Sees plays well and distributes the puck well. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Thomas Novak Note Novak could be a bit sturdier on his skates. Makes a play and watches it. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016

Thomas Novak Note Novak out on the ice with his team needing a goal. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Thomas Novak Note Novak with a lightning release. No doubt on that goal. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Ryan Collins Note Ryan Collins very steady defensively. Takes care of his own zone. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Ryan Collins Note Collins has a bomb of a shot. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Ryan Collins Note Collins consistently gets body position on the attacking forwards and separates them from the puck with his massive frame. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Jedd Soleway Note Soleway with a brave defelection of Kunin’s shot. Has been taking abuse up there, good on him to keep at it in the crease. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Jedd Soleway Note Soleway’s next shift he gets a 5-minute major for checking from behind, ending his night. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Hudson Fasching Summary Fasching has very good hands and good instincts, but isn’t using his large frame to his maximum benefit. Physically ready for the next level. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Luke Kunin Summary Playing offense, the vision and on-ice awareness is evident. Handles the puck well in traffic and has a quick, accurate shot. Good skating and agility. Defense wasn’t helpful, known hole in his game. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Thomas Novak Summary Novak was a player in his draft year that had some discussion on his talent level, but games like today show his skill and what a steal he was in the third round. Offensive vision and passing ability, mixed with high-end skating. He has gained weight, another 10 pounds would help as well. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Ryan Collins Summary Smart defender that understands the position well. Has good skating ability but transitions and lateral movement could be refined. Size and smarts were keys in his game. Zachary DeVine Wisconsin vs Minnesota (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 3/11/2016
Justin Auger Note Auger a big kid that can move well in a straight line. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016
Dylan DeMelo Note DeMelo turns over the puck and Sutter rifles a shot over the dropping Grosenick. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016
Dylan DeMelo Note DeMelo again with a turnover. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016

Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson with a strong move to the net, kicked out the right leg to protect the puck. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016
Troy Grosenick Note Grosenick looking more than a bit shaky early. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016
Nikita Jevpalovs Note Jevpalovs started the year making steady progress, has stalled out on the curve. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016
Adrian Kempe Note Kempe has good edge work and fluidity in his hips. Skating is very good. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016
Adrian Kempe Note Kempe gets caught doing too much, but like what he is seeing and trying. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016
Jeremy Morin Note Morin has one of the better compete levels of the San Jose forwards. Generally plays within his game. Knows what he can do and does it well. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/13/2016
Anthony Beauvillier Note Really nice straight-line speed and power stride. Gets his feet back underneath him quickly Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Samuel Girard Note Playing the top of the umbrella on the powerplay, and a good shot gets through traffic Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Samuel Girard Note Calm with the puck on his stick at either end of the ice Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Samuel Girard Note Got tripped up in the offensive zone, but got back up and raced hard to get back to his defensive zoen, then laid down a solid body checkof the puck carrier and knocked him off the puck Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016

Timo Meier Note Patrols the ice like a shark waiting for some prey to drop into the water. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Timo Meier Note Strong on the puck, such a good possession-type player Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Timo Meier Note Dominant sequence of play where he showed his entire skill set: Covering back for a defender who had pinched, Meier broke up a pass with his active stick in the defensive zone. The he chipped the puck laterally away from the two attackers, skatied past them to get the puck, then quickly pushed back to the neutral zone. There he powered through a forward, gained the offensive zone, chipped the puck off the wall to go around the defenseman, then took the puck to the net. Not selfish in any part of the sequence, and instead allowed his team to make a line change while maintaining possession. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Timo Meier Note Another strong possession play and draws a penalty Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016

Perron made a 20-foot kick pass, well-executed and smart on the fly. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Francis Perron Note Coasting to the circle while Meier has the puck, and Perron has his stick up ready for a one-timer. Meier found him, but the pass was tipped and came to Perron's feet, and Perron was unable to adjust his body to get his shot off. Instead, he booted to puck and the turnover went quickly the other way. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Francis Perron Note Sells out, diving a sprawling into the crease to prevent a goal after his goaltender took himself out of position on a penalty kill. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Dmytro Timashov Note Gets off a wrist shot from just inside the blue line that requires a good glove save to keep the puck out of the net Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Dmytro Timashov Note Not the most intense player on the defensive side of the puck. Sort of waves his stick at attackers. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Dmytro Timashov Note At his best carrying the puck through the neutral zone and making a zone entry Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016

Dennis Yan Note Goes back hard to get to the defensive zone after a turnover Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Anthony Beauvillier Summary Struggled to find space in this game as Rouyn-Noranda focused on shutting down his land and were effective in doing so.Still, Beauvillier's skills and skating were present, and he created several chances that required better saves and defensive plays. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Samuel Girard Summary Has an excellent stride and tremendous calmness with the puck on his stick. Girard can be a dangerous player, but sometiimes is still too risky with the puck. However, after a couple more years of development, he could become a highly sought-after middle pair NHL defender. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Timo Meier Summary The best player on the ice in this game, Meier's ability to control the puck and drive possession play has the hallmarks of a top-six NHL player. His vision and hockey sense are excellent, and he is a player who is constantly reading the game. He lacks a great explosive burst, but he is really strong on his skates and willing to do whatever it takes to get the puck to the net. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Julien Nantel Summary Shows flashes of ability, but lacks any high-end skills. Good, honest effort. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Francis Perron Summary Quick and always attacking, Perron (recently signed to an NHL contract) played with energy. There were a few flaws in his game, but he can convert chances and he is not shy on defense. Does not look like an offensive force, but could be an effective third-liner Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Dmytro Timashov Summary Tymashov will not scare anyone in the defensive zone, but he excells in moving the puck up ice and creating opportunities. If he works on his two-way game and shows that he can be more than a liability in his own end, he has the skills to become a good winger in the NHL Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Dennis Yan Summary A good game from Yan, who knows his way around the rink. A good player in several respects, his defensive game is improving and his offensive instincts make him a good offensive-zone player Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/14/2016
Julius Bergman Note Bergman needs to have fewer misfires from the point. More than any other defender, in my opinion. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Dylan DeMelo Note Massively better than the first game in the series, this was the NHL DeMelo we saw for the Sharks. His time in the NHL has helped his game and he looks more confident. Game looks slower for him. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Dylan DeMelo Note DeMelo looking much better early. Skating better and seems more comfortable with the puck on his stick. Had bad puck luck last game. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Dylan DeMelo Note DeMelo with a solid hip check, got across quickly and ended the attack. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Dylan DeMelo Note Twice DeMelo’s tight gap control turned a Reign player back into their own zone at their defensive blue line. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Dylan DeMelo Note DeMelo with a smart pinch and pass across the crease to Bryan Lerg for the game-tying goal. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson has a good shot, quick release. Doesn’t always get in the best area for a scoring chance with it. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Adrian Kempe Note Kempe already looking much better than Sunday’s game. Contesting pucks early, work ethic back. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Adrian Kempe Note Kempe’s skating a good, but could get more power out of his stride. Tweak item for adjustment and improvement, not at all a big issue. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Adrian Kempe Note Kempe with smart defensive zone positioning on the left wing. Reading the play well and keeping his stick down and active. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Adrian Kempe Note Kempe with a great powerplay goal, blasting the one-timer short side from the off wing. Got all of that, what a shot. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Mirco Mueller Note Mueller with a good read to intercept the puck, but lofts in cross corner when pressured. Needs to create. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Mirco Mueller Note Mueller getting feisty with a Reign player for an extra whack at Rumpel. Always love a bit of sand coming from Mueller. I think he plays better when it’s in his game, but it waxes and wanes quite a bit. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Mirco Mueller Note A bit of panic is back in Mueller’s game when handling the puck. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Mirco Mueller Note Mueller almost goes coast to coast. Comes down the off wing and goes inside out on the Reign defender to draw a penalty. Flashes of real brilliance. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Adrian Kempe Summary High skill and excellent skater with a shot that is excellent and well placed. Played better defensively than many young AHLers. In two games in three days he did show some consistency issues but one must remember this is a 19 year old in the AHL playing against men and seasoned professional hockey players. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Mirco Mueller Summary Mueller has had good moments keeping the puck in the offensive zone, but more pokes and chips than puck possession and getting it to a teammate. Consistency is going to be the issue and he needs to level out the peaks and valleys in his game. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/16/2016
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Playing center on the second line Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017

Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Highly confidant skater, his feet just do whatever he needs them to do. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Play looks young, just a bit tentative at times Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note I like his puck protection instincts, and his ability to make a play under pressure. He's not afraid to take a hit to make something happen Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Good 50/50 effort to win a puck Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017

Olivier Bourret Note Battles hard for loose pucks Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Olivier Bourret Note Pass to hard to handle for his point partner on the powerplay, and a bit off-target, too Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Olivier Bourret Note Strong skater, good mechanics, gets low with full, powerful extensions Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Maxime Fortier Note Gets really low when he has the puck, making him shifty and hard to wrap up down low. Combined with his quickness and agility, he's tough to handle below the circles Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Maxime Fortier Note Handles the puck really well in heavy traffic, constantly trying to make something happen. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Maxime Fortier Note All effort and effective energy in his own zone Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Carries the puck up ice with some skill, but fires the puck into the corner and Halifax gains possession. Hate that play on the powerplay, but could be the coach's preference. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Good movement on the powerplay, and when the puck comes, fires a wrister wide Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Joins the puck carrier on a two-man rush, takes up a spot low in the right corner, patiently takes a pass and finds his open man. Nice offensive zone sequence Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Ill-chosen pass trying to hit a forward in transition, an easy intercept for the Halifax player Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017

Leon Gawanke Note Good patience retrieving the puck with a forechecker all over him Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Nice play to lead a three-on-two, snap pass, then goes to the front of the net and his efforts result in a scramble goal Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Stickhandles through traffic like he's playing against U14s Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Leads a rush two-on-two with Fortier, but when Fortier gets interfered with (knocked to the ice by a good but totally illegal hit), Hischier hard stops, turns back and allows the play to reset. Very smart play. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Took a slash on the hands and did not like it, waited half a shift then picked his spot and threw a hard, clean hit on the neutral-zone boards. Hischier is playing with some snarl. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note A beauty of a pass into the slot on the powerplay, but Coughler didn't find the puck (all he needed was to have had his stick on the ice and the puck would have found him). Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Doubled up on almost every time he touches the puck in the offensive zone, yet he still makes plays with ease Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Fantastic array of shots in his arsenal Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note He's too good for this competition. Simple as that. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Super-active stick in the defensive zone, like all of the rest of the well-coached Halifax team Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note I'll just say it--Hischier looks NHL ready Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Junior hockey looks way too slow for him Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017

Nico Hischier Note Second time in the game that a brilliant Hischier pass goes squandered because Coughler wasn't prepared to do something with it. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Mathias Laferriere Note Nice speed on the right side, tries to turn the defenseman, then slots a nice pass to the crease. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Mathias Laferriere Note Good skater, want more from his first steps, though Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Playing wing on Groulx's line. Not making much of an impact, but always engaged in the play and around the puck. A good sign for better things to come. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note His return foot never gets back in front of his body. Needs some work to tighten that up. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Straightline speed with the puck is admirable, keeps the puck well out in front and gets good, long strides. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Nice board pass to spring a forward into the neutral zone Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Summary Size, skating and quality hands. Still looks raw and inconsistent at times. Takes a hit to make a play, and willing to engage in puck battles. His skating at 6'3 is a big plus attribute, as he looks fluid in all four directions with excellent speed. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Olivier Bourret Summary Young winger with promise. Solid on his skates with above average speed and balance, and offensive potential. A 2018 draft prospect who needs to continue to work hard to develop his skills Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Maxime Fortier Summary Smart play with and without the puck, plays a high-work-rate, puck possession game with a nose for the net. Fights through traffic despite his smaller size, and uses his agility and balance to escape or absorb impacts. Lacks high-end creativity, but a quality player with good NHL potential Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Summary An offensive defenseman who didn't look lost in his own end. Skates well with the puck, shows good patience and stick skills. However, at times his decisions were not crisp, and he forced the play at times. A project with decent offensive, powerplay upside if he can refine his game. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Summary Hard to determine what aspect of his game is most dominant, his ultimate confidence in his abilities, or the abilities themselves. Hischier bends the game to his will, and I don't recall an ineffective shift in this game. His shot selection, timing, passing, vision, skating, willingness to engage in physical play, leadership on and off the ice, work effort. It's all there in every shift he plays. A strong argument can be made that he is the best player in this draft class. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Mathias Laferriere Summary Good skater, not great. Needs better acceleration. Shows good potential, but didn't play much of a role in this game and was the first time I'd watched him closely. He's on the radar for next year, though. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Summary As a 9/25/2000 birthdate, Lavoie is a 2019 draft prospect with good size at 6'3 177. Has only seen regular Halifax minutes over the last couple of months, but has 6 points in his last 14 games. Showed good speed, a solid hockey sense and ice awareness, but looks raw. At a draft-minus-2 player, however, he has a lot of time to improve and could be a top prospect going into his draft year. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Christoph Bertschy Note Bertschy can skate. Wow. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Christoph Bertschy Note Bertschy with a few feisty board battles in the 1st period. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016

Grayson Downing Note Downing with a powerplay goal. Folin with assist Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Grayson Downing Note Downing could benefit from more urgency in his game, epsecially his skating and getting places. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016

Derek Grant Note Derek Grant with another goal. Just playes well, dangerous all around. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Christian Folin Note Folin with a pair of good zone exit passes early. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Christian Folin Note Folin’s decisions seem to just take an extra split second. Might just be a confidence thing, his decisions have been sound and usually the safe play. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Kenney Morrison Note Kenney Morrison has a well-rounded skill set, but I’d like to see quicker decisions. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Emile Poirier Note Emile Poirier with speed through the neutral zone, great give and go with Devin Shore Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016

Hunter Shinkaruk Note Shinkaruk with a smart pass to Grant for the powerplay goal. Pass through the crease is risky but it worked. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Devin Shore Note Shore with a solid powerplay goal. Poirier was the partner on a skilled, high-speed attack. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Christoph Bertschy Summary Bertschy inserted himself in the game notes with a fiesty, fast-skating game. He is not a big player, but mixes it up physically and a good dose of sand in his game, always seeming to get a few whacks in after the whistle. Skating is excellent in all facets. Quick acceleration, lateral movement, stops on a dime, good top speed. Player to watch. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Grayson Downing Summary When he was engaged in the play, Downing was a key contributor for the Wild. Too often I found him still or gliding and not doing much to support the play. He appears to allow the game to dictate what he does and not impose his will on the game itself. Poor overall compete level and that is a red flag for me. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Christian Folin Summary Confidence with the puck is needed. His passes and moves up the ice need to come quicker, his decisions were not happening at AHL speeds in this game. Decent skater for a man his size and puck handling skills as well. But the mental side will need work. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Emile Poirier Summary Again, the north/south play of Poirier is helping is overall game. Many of the complaints I had about his game early in the year are being smoothed out. Shift-to-shift play is much more consistent as well. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs Stockton (AHL) Live 3/18/2016
Christoph Bertschy Note Bertschy gets a step on Stolley and goes backhand. Very quick first steps created the separation and puck hound skills as well. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Christoph Bertschy Note Bertschy with a breakaway goal. Dell stops it with the blocker but it’s so hard it bounces back at Bertschy and richochets back into the net. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Christoph Bertschy Note Bertschy has had some extra curricular stuff going on with the lumber. Not dirty, got a bit of agitator in him it seems. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Christoph Bertschy Note Bertschy not afraid of the rough stuff. Takes Ryan hard to the boards, then nearly elbows Goldobin in the head coming back. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson playing well tonight. Crisper passing and work with the puck than earlier this week. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson ties up the stick of a driving Downing, saves a goal. Good back check. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Note Emanuelsson gets after the Wild puck carrier and allows Lerg to strip the puck and go in on the Wild goalie Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin touch going early and often, few nice passes to get solid chances Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin’s positioning is much improved. Not curling away from the crease or offensive plays, staying open for the puck. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Note Goldobin sticks with the play and kicks down the puck to get a chance. Earlier this year he would have peeled off and nothing would have come of it. Instead its an offensive draw. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Jeremy Morin Note Morin could be more patient with his shot, it’s good, but he launches it before traffic can develop at times. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Jeremy Morin Note Jeremey Morin with the game-winning goal on the powerplay. Hard shot we know he has, and luckily all he had to do was punch it home. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Mirco Mueller Note Mueller is playing rushed again early. His best games are when he is more confident holding the puck. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Christoph Bertschy Summary Quickness is a hallamrk in Bertschy’s game and it was on display in Stockton and again in San Jose. Skating is high-end and solid puck possession skills and confidence with the puck on his stick. If Bertschy had more size, there would be much more fanfare. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Petter Emanuelsson Summary One of Emanuelsson’s better games in some time. He has the skillset that could lead him to a third line role in the NHL but for weeks at a time some component of his game will trail off and come back when something else goes away. Consistency in skills is needed, his work ethic is always on display. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Nikolay Goldobin Summary The small, professional details are starting to appear in Goldobin’s game and that is a credit to Roy Sommer’s coaching. The offensive skill is not doubted, but now that the defense and all-around attention to detail is present, Goldobin has a good chance as a prospect. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Dylan Labbe Summary Labbe isn’t using his teammates in either game of his I have seen. Converted defenseman and he holds the puck too long. Not much to like overall. Zachary DeVine Iowa vs San Jose (AHL) Live 3/19/2016
Patrick Bajkov Note Bajkov with a big hit on 22, turns into a shorthanded chance. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Patrick Bajkov Note There is skill in Bajkov’s game and it shows in flashes. One wonders if the trap is clouding his offensive skills. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brian King Note King is seeing the play he needs to make, having some tough puck luck. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brycen Martin Note Martin with a steady play, took the puck behind the net, shielding the puck from the defender, carries and makes a smart hard pass. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brycen Martin Note Brycen Martin making smart, solid plays with the puck. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016

Caleb Jones Note Jones takes the puck himself and crashes the net, dangerous chance. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Caleb Jones Note Jones trying to do too much on his own, not using teammates Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brendan De Jong Note DeJong desperately needs to get meat on his frame. Good height. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brendan De Jong Note DeJong’s fluid skating. Good edges and good movement Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar with a great chance. His work in the dirty areas almost got him a greasy goal. Has a good nose for the net. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar with a tenacious shift. Hitting early and moving his feet. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Yan Khomenko Note Khomenko choppy skating, generates good power but looks out of control all the time. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Dawson Leedahl Note Leedahl bats in the puck while getting knocked to this ice. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Dawson Leedahl Note Leedahl walks out from the corner and roofs it on Hill. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Skyler McKenzie Note Skyler McKenzie out on the PK, quick movements, active stick Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Mario Petit Note Petit’s rebound control is loose early. Looks nervous, feet moving too much Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brandon Ralph Note Ralph cuts the the middle of the ice and rips one past Hill. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brandon Ralph Note Ralph is a big thick kid but comes off his skates easily on two mediocre hits by smaller players. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Alex Schoenborn Note Schoenborn playing hard, but not smart. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Patrick Bajkov Summary Bajkov displaying good vision. Has read a number of plays and positioned himself well to aid the attack. Played on the second line with fellow winger Dewar and the two were energy buzzsaws for Everett. Smart, effective play throughout the series, scoring a skillful goal and adding two assists. Played the point on the PP1 unit as well. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brycen Martin Summary Martin played a great series. Multiple times he made a hard play with the Portland forechecker draped on him. Took care of the puck, and carried it up the ice. Only made one or two real mistakes with the puck while playing heavy minutes. Skating is solid and defensively was the best Silvertip over the four game sweep. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Connor Dewar Summary High-motor guy that plays much bigger than his 5’10 listing would suggest. Not afraid of larger players in the corner and has a bit of sand and agitator to his game. Defensively solid for such a young player. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Noah Juulsen Summary Would like to see Juulsen activate a bit more in this game. Playing more conservative than previous viewings. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Noah Juulsen Summary Juulsen was more quiet than I was expecting. Played a very defensively sound yet conservative game and was a calming influence on the game. Some of his defensive coverage was spotty at times, especially on the penalty kill, but still has the skill and smarts to succeed at the next level. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Brandon Ralph Summary Was a very average player except for the fact that he scored 3 goals in 4 games after only 5 all season. Big body, average skating, Okay physical game but when he got space, exhibited a good shot with quick release. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Alex Schoenborn Summary Schoenborn very north/south player. Gets tunnel vision to make a hit or stir something up, doesn't look to be worried about offense and Portland needed him to. Offense was hard to come by and his decisions with the puck were average. Not a natural goal scorer, manufacturer of offense with tenacity and hard work Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/25/2016
Rodrigo Abols Note Abols plays a 2-on-1 perfectly, Petit somehow makes a save. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Patrick Bajkov Note Bajkov has a shorthanded breakaway but one move too many and runs out of space. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Patrick Bajkov Note Bajkov sees it, just has a little bit of trouble with the finesse. Untapped offense. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Brian King Note King tidy’s up on a puck that was going through Petit. Saved a goal with a solid defensive read and defenseman dealing with attacking forwards. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Brycen Martin Note Brycen Martin just makes good plays and reads with the puck. Solid, rock solid player. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Brendan De Jong Note De Jong doesn’t have his stick tying up Millar stick. Defensive positioning is weak, especially for his size. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar has his motor running a bit too high. Needs to play within himself a bit more. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar is getting worked over by any Winterhawk that can get to him. Still working hard. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar’s gritty game gets under the Portland player's skin, leads to a good bit of extra stuff and an Everett powerplay. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016
Conor MacEachern Note MacEachren’s skating needs a good deal of work. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016

Ryan Hughes Note Ryan Hughes with a smart defensive play to save a goal. Good read and position Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Live 3/26/2016

Patrick Bajkov Note Bajkov off the far pipe and then has the puck bounce over his stick on a rebound. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Brian King Note King lays a nice open ice hit, eliminating the puck carrier. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Brycen Martin Note Brycen Martin gets one through Hill’s wickets. Smart shot that got through: low and heavy. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Rihards Bukarts Note Bukarts is very good skater, elusive and shifty. Good on his edges. Gets to where he needs to be Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Rihards Bukarts Note Bukarts has good vision. Aware of what is going on in the game and on the ice Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Rihards Bukarts Note Bukarts has a dangerous array of shots to select from. Good release from multiple angles, not afraid of shooting, changes looks at the goaltender often. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Caleb Jones Note Jones wakes up, but again not using his teammates. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Caleb Jones Note Jones has been a non-factor in the first Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Caleb Jones Note Jones completely flat footed on the Leedahl goal. It’s been a terrible three viewings of him. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Brendan De Jong Note De Jong defensively isn’t there. Bad body positioning, stick off the ice. Just absent defensively. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Noah Juulsen Note Juulsen is a very good skater. Changes directions suddenly. Shifty player. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Noah Juulsen Note Juulsen with two bad miscues halfway through the first period needs to calm down and play within himself. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Kevin Davis Note Davis looking solid early. Tight gaps and controlling the play along the boards. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Kevin Davis Note Davis twice has taken the puck from the deep defensive zone up the ice with poise and confidence. Did not see that earlier in the series. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Remi Laurencelle Note Laurencelle to Leedahl with a streaking deflection past Hill Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Remi Laurencelle Note Laurencelle again. Standyk with a slick little pass to get the puck through the crease to Remi Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Ryan Hughes Note Dangerous hit, puts his team on the PK. Not a smart play. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Alex Schoenborn Note Seems more interested in the rough stuff than the play. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016

Alex Schoenborn Note Schoenborn taps in the fantastic pass from Bukarts. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Brendan De Jong Summary De Jong has solid skating ability, but not much else. Needs lots of physical development, defensive game is a glaring weakness and did not exhibit the offensive vision or ability to overlook defensive mistakes. Might be a very long term project. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/29/2016
Bowen Byram Note Plants a shoulder into the puck carrier, knocks him off the puck, and when another opposing forward grabs the loose puck and tries to go by him, Byram plants a shoulder into him, too, and knocks him off the puck as well. Serious physical play from the 15-year-old blueliner Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Bowen Byram Note Good balance, but needs to clean up his backward skating a bit. Fortunately, he has plenty of time to work on that before his draft year. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Bowen Byram Note Nice positioning against Glass one-on-one on the right-wing boards Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
