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.

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

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

Andrei Altybarmakyan Note Like his balance and leg strength a lot Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Andrei Altybarmakyan Summary Not a big player at 5'11, 183 pounds, but he shows a high-work-rate effort at all times, strong and balanced, but his offensive skills are a bit wanting and will likely govern his ultimate level of play. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Outhustling the opposition in the offensive zone, using his stick and his feet to gain position Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Great effort on the backcheck. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Fantastic shift battling in front of the net with two players on him, keeps his feet moving, works free to get the puck, goes behind the net, finds Kostin for an easy goal. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Generates so much effortless power from his skates. Does he realize he's on ice? Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Constantly pushing play, highly active shift yet again. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Summary Simply an excellent player who takes advantage of every small opportunity presented to him on the ice. In a tournament where his ice time was limited by coaching who decided to play older players more often and having just recently returned to the ice after missing 6 weeks or so with a broken hand, Svechnikov still managed a point-per-game production and looked consistently threatening on every shift. Size, quickness, strength and lethal offensive skills. (General summary of all tournament viewings). Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Dmitri Sokolov Note Not much burst from a standstill, takes several choppy strides to get to speed Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Dmitri Sokolov Note Floating in his own end, more watching than watchful, and when the puck comes to his zone he misses his resposibility and allows a prime chance against. Sloppy play there. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Klim Kostin Note Finally starting to look like he's back to form and finding a steady rhythm after having missed all of that time with the injury in his draft year. Seems more like the player I remember from two years ago. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Maxim Sushko Note Carries the puck with speed through the neutral zone, but looses the puck off his stick and blows a tire trying to recover. Unforced error. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Maxim Sushko Note Left top of the circle, gets the puck, delays while the defender slides past him, then changes the angle slightly and rips a dangerous shot. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Viktor Bovbel Note Leading the powerplay unit, the puck goes through him and he's directing play Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Viktor Bovbel Note Soft pass back to the top of the umbrella nearly gets picked off for a shorthanded break. That pass needs to be sharper or not made at all. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017
Vladislav Ryadchenko Note Agility is excellent, hips are lightning in pivots, feet are light. Superb skating and quickness. Brian Fogarty Belarus vs Russia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/29/2017

Filip Chytil Note Throws a hard hit on the half boards Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017

Jesper Boqvist Note Highly manueverable, showing really nice edgework and lateral quickness Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017
Jesper Boqvist Note Gets up to speed in just a couple of strides. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017
Krystof Hrabik Note Looks a bit off center, having issues keeping his feet planted in contact and loses pace when transitioning front to back. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017
Oskar Steen Note So fast and smooth on his skates. Flies down the ice. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017

Radovan Pavlik Note Highly active in the offensive zone, making himself available for passes and moving quickly without the puck. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Czech Republic (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017

Drake Batherson Note Certainly not the pretty skater, looks all knees and elbows Brian Fogarty Canada vs Slovakia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017

Erik Smolka Note Active stick breaks up a cross-ice pass while on the penalty kill, but he ends up trying to cover three players while his unit mates watch. Goal against. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Slovakia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017
Jordan Kyrou Note What magic in his hands to absolutely undress the exhausted Smolka and snap a clean wrist shot for the Canada goal. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Slovakia (WJC 2018) Stream 12/27/2017

Aleksi Heponiemi Note Grabs a horrible decision from Clague behind his own net, and nearly gets his second goal of the game, but he couldn't quite get the handle at the doorstep. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017
Boris Katchouk Note Using his feet and hands to protect the puck and get a clean zone entry. He's having an excellent game. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017
Dillon Dube Note Fantastic play off of the defensive-zone boards to hit Gadjovich with a clean breakout on the penalty kill. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017
Eeli Tolvanen Note Finally get a good look at Tolvanen's shot in this game, and it puts Clague to the ice and then limping to the bench. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017
Eeli Tolvanen Note Continues to have issues creating his own space, which limits his opportunities on the small ice. Love his play when he has the room, but I continue to be concerned that he is a big-ice player. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017
Eeli Tolvanen Note Gets his shot off so quickly, it always seems suprising the way it jumps off his stick Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017

Jordan Kyrou Note Kyrou's release is so quick and nasty. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (WJC 2018) Stream 12/26/2017

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

Jacob Schmidt-Svejstrup Note Decent speed but not fast Brian Fogarty Fargo vs USNTDP (USHL) Video (With Replay) 12/1/2017

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

Casey Gilling Note Shifty player, changes directions quickly, leaving defenders groping for position. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Casey Gilling Summary Small player, good in the corners, quick hands, but doesn't seem to have any above average skills beyond that. Straightline skating needs work, did not see anything interesting regarding playmaking or offensive skills in general. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Dawson Dipietro Note Small, active player in his own end. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017

Hugh McGing Note Hard work in front of his own net, keeps his stick in the passing lane and makes a nice interception Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Hugh McGing Note Skates bent over at the waist instead of a natural deep knee bend, Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017

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

Wade Allison Note Again at the top of the crease, but when the puck goes behind the net, he pushes out to the mid-slot area, gets a pass, fires a shot top left corner that barely misses. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Note Been getting double shifts the entire 3rd period while the Broncos are down by a goal, then even after he tied the game at three. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Note His wrist shot is slow to release, but nasty when it comes off of his stick. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Note Gets the puck at the offensive blue line for a partial breakaway in overtime, shows the biggest burst of speed I've seen all night, dekes and ends the game off his forehand. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017
Wade Allison Summary Big, power forward type who plays his best game in front of the net. Defensively, he looks like a guy who just wants to go back up ice. Hands are excellent in tight, scores his goals from the dirtyh, high-danger areas, but not really a threat at distance. His game is all five feet in front of the net. Brian Fogarty Western Michigan vs Miami University Video (With Replay) 12/9/2017

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

Luke McInnis Summary A bit heavy-footed which limits his effectiveness at this point. Will drift in from the poing on set plays, but just didn't see much from him in this game. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Shane Bowers Note Always active and trying to make something happen: taking shots, breaking up passes, finding open players, getting to the crease. Gets awarded for his effort with a tip-in goal. Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017
Shane Bowers Note Clean faceoff win Brian Fogarty Boston University vs Boston College (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/2/2017

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

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

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

Andrew Oglevie Note First game back after an injury Brian Fogarty Notre Dame vs Penn State (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/10/2017

Brandon Biro Note Looks like the quickest player on the ice Brian Fogarty Notre Dame vs Penn State (NCAA) Live Streaming 11/10/2017

Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Turns the corner with the puck wide, tucks back in, causes all kinds of trouble at the net. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Summary The patience, skating and two-way mentality all point to a player who can make an impact at the NHL level. Once he puts everything together, could become a high-impact player and a top-15 pick. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Good burst to get up into the neutral zone on a back check, takes the angle, and shoulders the puck carrier into the boards. Nice Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Kid can skate. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Positioned well in the defensive zone, deflected puck falls to his feet, and instead of doing anything risky, just kicks the puck out of his d-zone. I love that play from him. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Took a big hit to make a smart pass, tucking the puck around the defender and just leave the puck in the path of Lavoie, Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Agility, balance, quickness are all excellent level or maybe better from what I've seen so far, and he'll take a hit to make a play. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Top powerplay unit with Lavoie and Fortier to start the second period. This group looks dangerous. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note Also getting penalty kill duty, and based on about thirty seconds of that shift, he could easily be an NHL PK specialist if all else fails. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Note His game is incredibly smooth: passing, skating, up and down the ice. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Filip Zadina Summary High-quality player with an excellent assortment of tools, the kind of player that could be a top-five draft pick for 2018. On this first viewing, I'm not ready to call any one attribute elite, but there are not a lot of players his age that are excellent at every aspect of the game. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017

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

Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Uses his length well to keep attackers away from the loose puck and reach out to corall it himself. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note At his blue line, pushing the puck up ice, had a choice of two passes, but took the one that looked riskier to me. He tried to find Alexandrov instead of the safer option. I understand why, but sometimes it is better to certain. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Long-shift, but he really struggled to get back deep and keep an icing call intact. Nearly got beat out by two Halifax players. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Over-committs to the puck carrier at the circle and leaves a huge opening at the crease. Easy goal for the opposition.

Pierre-Olivier Joseph Note Attacks a puck at the red line while on the penalty kill, risky but well-played. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Pierre-Olivier Joseph Summary Good passer, good skater, risk taker. Needs desperately to add some weight (currently listed as 6'2, 161 pounds) and to cut down on some of the riskier aspects of his game, but he shows good offensive awareness and stick skills. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Takes a nifty pass from Zadina in the high slot, dips to his left, and beats the netminder clearly far-side corner. Soft hands and heady shot selection. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note He needs some work on his pivots forwards to backward, there's a bit of a hop-and-turn instead of smooth conversion. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Slick hands, deking through traffic, curls behind the net and finds Bishop in the circle for a one-timer goal. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Summary The 2019-draft-eligible forward showed good hands, edgework and finishing ability. Great size at 6'3 and still has plenty of time to add to his 176 pounds. Still some polishing to do on some of the rougher edges of his game, but Lavoie is a player to monitor. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Good knee bend in his stride, a little clunky on the pivot on his first shift Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Digging hard on the backcheck. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Like his edgework on the powerplay, constant movement, keeping his body to the puck, finding space. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Nice hands to pull the puck close then try to chip a pass out of his defensive zone, but I'd rather have seen him actually make a safer play there. Brian Fogarty Charlottetown vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Streaming 10/1/2017
Anders Bjork Note Buzzing early, showing off his quickness and ability to jump into open spaces. Working hard off the puck in the offensive zone, gets free to receive a pass and fires a quick wrist shot. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Anders Bjork Note Getting powerplay time, and first to the loose pucks consistently. Such good anticipation and burst. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Anders Bjork Note Finding high-vision passing opportunities and connecting consistently Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Anders Bjork Note Bad backhand pass off the boards in the offensive zone leads to an easy turnover, but he jumps quickly back to defend the breakout with a nice poke check to get the puck back for his team Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Anders Bjork Summary All hustle and controlled instensity, with excellent vision and game awareness. Opponents in the NHL are going to hate playing against him, especially in playoff scenarios Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Jeremy Lauzon Note Pulls a puck out of a scrum and deftly flicks it up ice and out of the defensive zone. Smart, handsy play. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Jeremy Lauzon Note Not sure what he was doing there, but he just slapped a pass through the neutral zone for an icing.Confusing choise, since he was not under pressure and the probability of a forward receiving that pass with an alacrity is minimal, at best Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Nolan Patrick Note Very quiet so far in the first 15 minutes of the game. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Nolan Patrick Note Looks a bit out of sorts in his own end, but when he has the puck in the offensive zone, looks more confident and effective. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Nolan Patrick Note Reads the play well, recognizing that Sanheim had pinched in deep, and retreats back to the left-defense spot all the way back into the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Nolan Patrick Summary The skills are apparent when he has the puck, but he's just not ready for the NHL yet. The year lost to injuries in 2016-2017 juniors needs to be regained this season, but he should be ready for 2018-2019 Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Oscar Lindblom Note Not fast, really, but smooth quickness and so well balanced on his skates, helps him tremendously in front of the net and in the corners where he will be most effective. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Oscar Lindblom Note Needs to get some hustle, showing no jump in this game so far, at all. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Oscar Lindblom Note That was a nice shift in the defensize zone, active stick, quick feet, poised aggressive defense, then a quick transition up the ice after the turnover. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Oscar Lindblom Summary Lindblom is a very good hockey player with strong skates and balance and who knows how to convert and extend plays low in the offensive zone. He is not a player who will beat defenders one-on-one, but he will torture them once in the zone by just making plays happen. Needs to pick up the pace a bit, but made good in-game adjustments in this contest that helps my opinion of his play. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017

Travis Sanheim Note So aggressive trying to move up ice all the time without the puck. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Note Good display of gap control and stickwork to win a one-on-one play against the boards. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Travis Sanheim Summary Offensive defender whose defensive game needs some improvement, but is NHL calibre already. His skating is improved and his non-stop intent to get involved in the offensive play is both fun to watch and dangerous at the same time. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Zachary Senyshyn Note Hard wrist shot from the top of the left circle, but not challenging for the netminder. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Zachary Senyshyn Summary Still seeing some of the issues I've seen from him in the past, namely that when he has the puck or has a chance of getting the puck, he shows effort and skills that could make him a quality NHLer, but without the puck, he drifts and loses energy and focus. If he can pull that around and play with similar work rates at both ends of the ice, he could be a solid middle-six forward in the NHL. Brian Fogarty Boston vs Philadelphia (NHL Preseason) Video (With Replay) 9/21/2017
Kerby Rychel Note Skating is improved, but could still be better in a straight line. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Logan Brown Note Snaps a wrist shot from the dot and beats Andersen easily. Sweet release after a good play to create the initial turnover and begin the sequence. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Logan Brown Note Another nice play, this team swooping into the offensive zone from the blue line to collect a loose puck and get it quickly on net. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Logan Brown Note Moves so well for such a huge player. Playing sound defense tonight, as well. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Logan Brown Summary Much improved in his quickness and confidence, and he looks like he could be ready to play in the NHL. He skates incredibly well for his size, with balance and smooth movements. Good instincts and hustle, too. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Max Reinhart Note Compact® stride, good speed and balance Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Max Reinhart Note Good work in a corner scrum, holds off the opponent until he gets the puck free from feet, then makes a sharp pass to a teammate for a chance. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Max Reinhart Summary Can skate the NHL game, can hustle the NHL game, but I'm not convinced he can think the NHL game. Brian Fogarty Toronto vs Ottawa (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/19/2017
Kasperi Kapanen Note Puckhandling is solid at speed and he makes difficult cuts look easy while maintaining possession Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Kasperi Kapanen Note Darts in and out of the middle, but I would like to see him really dig in every now and then and claim his position on the ice. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Logan Stanley Summary Still a lot of doubt about whether or not he has the feet to be an NHL defender. Size and physicality to do the job, but it is still unclear if he has the overall hockey iq to make up for his poor footwork Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Pius Suter Note Getting PK time, smooth and agile skater, but tentative in this game. He's active, though, and engaged. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Pius Suter Note Like his quickness and acceleration Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Pius Suter Summary Suter has a lot of tools including excellent acceleration, agility, and hockey iq, but he looks like a player better suited to the bigger European ice than the tighter confines of North American rinks. Willing to take a bump, but doesn't seem eager to get into the fray. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Thomas Chabot Note Aggressive pinch to get to a loose puck, good quick burst, decisive and most importantly, it was the right choice Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Thomas Chabot Note Nice rush up ice, manuevers in deep Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Thomas Chabot Note Patient with the puck in traffic, sees the whole ice really well, and no apprehension in his game at all Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017

Timothy Liljegren Note Fun to watch him skate, and his gambling passes pay off, they are beauties. Brian Fogarty Ottawa vs Toronto (NHL Preseason) Live video 9/18/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Like his game a lot: size, effort, physicality. Not as skillful as his older brother, maybe, but his intensity in immeasurable. Not a face-punher, just a dominant force. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note On defense it's constant pursuit for him, often at the expense of positioning, but his compete level is off the charts. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cale Makar Note Looks even faster that in the spring, if that's possible Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017

Cale Makar Note Loses the puck in his skates and Tufte takes it away. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cody Glass Note Just a good hockey player Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Cody Glass Note Worst-case scenario for Glass is that he becomes a bottom-six faceoff specialist who plays a decade in the NHL. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Jake Bean Note Active stick, but still needs to close up gaps a bit more quickly and more decisively Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Jake Bean Note Good defense against a charging Wahlstrom, turns him to the outside then pokes the puck away. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Jake Bean Note Skilled skater does the little things incredibly well Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Jake Bean Note Breaks his stick attempting a slap shot, then as the puck floats to an opposing forward, hurries back, gets position, bodies up on the puck carrier and takes him out of the play. Patient and smart, that. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Jake Bean Note Great poke check on the PK Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Logan Cockerill Note Plays at full speed every shift Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Logan Stanley Note Can't handle Dhooge's quickness. Still looks lumbersome. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Logan Stanley Note Lack of mobility allows Gettinger to get to a loose puck and sneak a shot down the goal line and into the net. You can't allow that in the NHL. Or the AHL for that matter. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Mikey Anderson Note Good, deep knee bend, but could improve his extensions Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Mikey Anderson Note Seems like his reach is 30 feet long, his active stick is really effective Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Mikey Anderson Note Misses a one-timer wide Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Mikey Anderson Note Excellent awareness in all three zones Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Mikey Anderson Summary Raw player who has a nice skillset for an NHL defenseman, but he needs a good couple of years to polish up his overall game. He shows smarts, good quickness, and a lot of positional awareness. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Oliver Wahlstrom Note Wahlstrom, as a 2018, will be interesting to watch this year. Fast, exuberant, raw. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note So hard to handle down low on the goal line, active, strong, heavy Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Cuts hard to the slot, draws a trip, fires a shot on his to the ice Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Liking his quickness in this game. He's looking more like he did in his draft year, and seems to have shrugged off some of the post-draft-year lethergy. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Sean Dhooge Note Just completely gifted as a player--he goes hard every shift, fights through checks and traffic, superb vision and puck skills. Great hockey player whose size is truly the only seriously limiting factor Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Sean Dhooge Summary More fun to watch play than almost anyone in the game, but he has such a huge hill to climb at his size. I've said it before, but if you're not a fan of Dhooge, you're not a fan of hockey. Brian Fogarty Canada White vs US Blue (WJ Summer Showcase) Video (With Replay) 8/1/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Play-disrupting machine down low, smashing his way to the net Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017

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

Rasmus Dahlin Note Good shoulder check, nice physicality and he's absorbing the continual US attacks against him Brian Fogarty USA Blue vs Sweden (WJSS) Video (With Replay) 7/30/2017

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

German Poddubnyi Note Good balance and agility, but average straightline speed at best Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
German Poddubnyi Summary Buzzes both zones, goes to the net and the dirty areas of the ice with effectiveness. Not a lot of skill on display, and his speed is below average despite showing good edgework and balance. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Ivan Lodnia Note Incredibly wide skating stride. So much wasted movement Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Ivan Lodnia Note Loses so much skating power because he doesn't bring his feet back under his body. It's a shame, because he shows decent quickness Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Ivan Lodnia Summary Not a lot to see in this game. Lodnia has some skill, but his skating must improve if he is going to have a successful future. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Jacob Moverare Note Nice gap control and a quick poke check easily breaks up an attack Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Michael McLeod Note If McLeod had any offensive creativity he'd be a highly dangerous player. His hands are decent and his skating is superb Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Michael McLeod Note So effective on the penalty kill because of his feet. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Nick Hague Summary Tall, offensively-minded defender with long legs and a long stride. He's not as agile as I'd like, and he gets turned around at times in the defensive zone and has difficulty sticking with quick forwards if he can't block their path. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Nick Hague Note Still not a fan of his skating or his decision making in the defensive end. Better, yes, but still a lot of room for improvement Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Nick Hague Note Long, slow-footed strides, but his legs are so long he covers a lot of ice surface Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017

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

Shaw Boomhower Note Floating a bit at the defensive blue line instead of cutting down to protect the top of the slot. Raddysh then ties the game with Boomhower trying to get down to him Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Shaw Boomhower Note Goes off for a clear boarding at 17:31 of OT, an ill-advised play that leads to the OHL championship goal against just 12 seconds later Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Shaw Boomhower Summary Plays an okay game, with a willingness to mix it up physically and go to the difficult spots, but his skating is problematic and his effort was inconsistent in this game. Brian Fogarty Mississauga vs Erie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 5/12/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Beautiful sequence: Battles down low, chases down the breakout attempt, lifts the stick, steals the puck, finds Norris at the doorstep for an easy goal. Favorite part of the pass was the deft weighting. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017

Joni Ikonen Note Calm with the puck on the powerplay. Measured, head up, great reads. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017

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

Miro Heiskanen Note Bit bowlegged skating stride. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017

Miro Heiskanen Note Another display of quality positioning. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017

Urho Vaakanainen Note Decisions are better than his hands. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Urho Vaakanainen Note Vaakanainen is a one-way defenseman. He needs to stay at home where he can be effective. Brian Fogarty USA vs. Finland (U18s) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2017
Conor Timmins Note Patient, nice job finding the right target on the breakout and getting him a smooth, soft pass Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Conor Timmins Note Not thrilled with his skating, awkward upright and sluggish Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Conor Timmins Note Long legs, not very agile and has difficulty transitioning Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Conor Timmins Note Good stickhandling. Just pulled a bad pass out of his skates and moved it quickly to a teammate. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Conor Timmins Note Just not a good skater at all, mechanics are a mess. His passing is his key attribute. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Conor Timmins Note Pushes his slapshot instead of ripping it. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Conor Timmins Note Covers a lot of ground because his legs are so long, and his hands are nifty, but his skating is woeful Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Conor Timmins Summary Taller than he is big (currently listed at 6'1, 182), was not overly physical, but he did show good offensive vision and sense. In his own end, his positioning was okay, but his skating hinders his effectiveness in all aspects of the game. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Jonah Gadjovich Note Strong net-front presence, a battler with good compete. Hands look suspicious Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Jonah Gadjovich Note Poor acceleration, his left to right is sluggish at best. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Jonah Gadjovich Note Just buried a guy at the blue line. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Jonah Gadjovich Summary Strong on his skates and physical without being overly aggressive. Plays the front of the net and makes the game difficult for those trying to defend the crease. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Kevin Hancock Note Real nose for the net, has a deceptive, accurate shot Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Kevin Hancock Summary Offensive skills are there, skating is a bit suspect, but there's no question that he likes to get the puck toward the net. His shot is a positive as is his offensive instincts. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Morgan Frost Note Good awareness, a calm presence on the ice allows his vision to be effective. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Morgan Frost Note Just picked out a nice read and the pass to complete it despite heavy contact at the offensive blue line. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Morgan Frost Note Intermission interview: lots of cliches, unfortunately Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Morgan Frost Note Not a particularly crisp release on that top-circle shot, more like he was trying to make a long pass Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Morgan Frost Note Shows good hockey sense and vision, not much panic in his game Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Morgan Frost Summary Good agility, good speed. Showed above-average vision and hands, especially in traffic. Good hands in close, but not a threat at distance. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Note Quick hands and good anticipation helps him widen passing lanes and distribute quickly Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Note Excellent release beats the goaltender shortside Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Note Uses his body to create space, willing to take and give hits. Looks and plays bigger than his listing at 5'11, 185. Want to see his combine measurements Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Note I like that he's wearing an "A" in his draft year. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Note Always with great awareness and anticipation, then flashes quick hands to generate something from his keen positioning. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Note Like his compete level, diving to break up passes in his own end to protect a one-goal lead late in the game Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Nick Suzuki Summary Solid all-around player with a lot of tools, but his awareness and hockey iq seemed to set him apart in this game. Solid skating base, with quickness, speed and agility. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Otto Makinen Note Average speed, okay positioning, but lacks a strong first step Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Otto Makinen Summary Nothing stood out in this game, either good or bad. At this point, he appears to be an average OHL player with some potential upside if he can refine various aspects of his game. Brian Fogarty Owen Sound vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 4/14/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Leads a 2-on-1, and when his shot goes just wide and the opponents recover the puck, he is the first person back in the defensive zone. In a game with a lot of top 2017 prospects, Svechnikov is the most dangerous and best player on the ice, period. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Would be the top pick in 2017 if he was a year older Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Gets a breakaway in OT, with the speedy Farrance right on his heels. Doesn't score, but outskating Farrance with the puck is a testament to Svechnikov's abilities Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Ridiculously good on his feet Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Generates speed just from his edges. Strong on his skates, superbly balanced. Excellent skater. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Just destroyed Inamoto with a spin move off the half boards. I'm gasping everytime he's on the ice. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Andrei Svechnikov Note Accurate with his one-timer, sets up on the right half-wall with his lefty shot Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Buzzing early and creating havoc Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Good stickhandler in traffic, willing to take a hit to make a play and able to absorb it Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Brady Tkachuk Note Might be faster straight line than his brother, might be nastier than his brother, but I'm not sure he's as talented as his brother. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Casey Gilling Note Blazes to a loose puck, gets a clean breakaway and puts away a shorthanded goal Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
David Farrance Note Farrance can fly in a straight line Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
David Farrance Note Farrance equals fast Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Grant Mismash Note Light on his feet, agile and quick in small spaces Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Grant Mismash Note First shooter for the USNTDP in the shootout, snaps a quick wrist shot past Petruzelli Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Joshua Norris Note Had a puck rebound to him alone near the slot, but instead of taking a shot immediately with his backhand, he tried to curl his body around the puck to get a forehand shot instead. Lost time, snap and the opportunity. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Joshua Norris Note Finds another loose puck in the offensive zone, this time already on his forehand, and fires a shot, saved. Has a knack for positioning in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Joshua Norris Note Soft hands in traffic Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Joshua Norris Note Good energy all over the ice, high compete level, not a ton of offensive creativity on display, though Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Tyler Inamoto Note Sublime opportunity in front of the net that Pettruzelli saved. Great work from Inamoto to get that low and time the attack. Nice shot. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/1/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Playing center on the second line Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Second-unit penalty killing center, moves his feet a lot, active player on the pk Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Highly confident skater, his feet just do whatever he needs them to do. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Play looks young, just a bit tentative at times Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note I like his puck protection instincts, and his ability to make a play under pressure. He's not afraid to take a hit to make something happen Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Good 50/50 effort to win a puck Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Note Kid can fly when necessary Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Benoit-Olivier Groulx Summary Size, skating and quality hands. Still looks raw and inconsistent at times. Takes a hit to make a play, and willing to engage in puck battles. His skating at 6'3 is a big plus attribute, as he looks fluid in all four directions with excellent speed. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Carries the puck up ice with some skill, but fires the puck into the corner and Halifax gains possession. Hate that play on the powerplay, but could be the coach's preference. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Good movement on the powerplay, and when the puck comes, fires a wrister wide Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Joins the puck carrier on a two-man rush, takes up a spot low in the right corner, patiently takes a pass and finds his open man. Nice offensive zone sequence Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Ill-chosen pass trying to hit a forward in transition, an easy intercept for the Halifax player Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Good first couple of steps gets him quickly to loose pucks Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Good patience retrieving the puck with a forechecker all over him Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Note Nice play to lead a three-on-two, snap pass, then goes to the front of the net and his efforts result in a scramble goal Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Leon Gawanke Summary An offensive defenseman who didn't look lost in his own end. Skates well with the puck, shows good patience and stick skills. However, at times his decisions were not crisp, and he forced the play at times. A project with decent offensive, powerplay upside if he can refine his game. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Mathias Laferriere Note Nice speed on the right side, tries to turn the defenseman, then slots a nice pass to the crease. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Mathias Laferriere Note Good skater, want more from his first steps, though Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Mathias Laferriere Summary Good skater, not great. Needs better acceleration. Shows good potential, but didn't play much of a role in this game and was the first time I'd watched him closely. He's on the radar for next year, though. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Maxime Fortier Note Gets really low when he has the puck, making him shifty and hard to wrap up down low. Combined with his quickness and agility, he's tough to handle below the circles Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Maxime Fortier Note Handles the puck really well in heavy traffic, constantly trying to make something happen. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Maxime Fortier Note All effort and effective energy in his own zone Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Maxime Fortier Summary Smart play with and without the puck, plays a high-work-rate, puck possession game with a nose for the net. Fights through traffic despite his smaller size, and uses his agility and balance to escape or absorb impacts. Lacks high-end creativity, but a quality player with good NHL potential Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Stickhandles through traffic like he's playing against U14s Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Leads a rush two-on-two with Fortier, but when Fortier gets interfered with (knocked to the ice by a good but totally illegal hit), Hischier hard stops, turns back and allows the play to reset. Very smart play. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Took a slash on the hands and did not like it, waited half a shift then picked his spot and threw a hard, clean hit on the neutral-zone boards. Hischier is playing with some snarl. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note A beauty of a pass into the slot on the powerplay, but Coughler didn't find the puck (all he needed was to have had his stick on the ice and the puck would have found him). Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Doubled up on almost every time he touches the puck in the offensive zone, yet he still makes plays with ease Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Fantastic array of shots in his arsenal Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note He's too good for this competition. Simple as that. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Super-active stick in the defensive zone, like all of the rest of the well-coached Halifax team Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note I'll just say it--Hischier looks NHL ready Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Junior hockey looks way too slow for him Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Rockets a shot from 70 feetthat a spectacular glove save keeps out the net with a minute and a half left Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Note Second time in the game that a brilliant Hischier pass goes squandered because Coughler wasn't prepared to do something with it. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Nico Hischier Summary Hard to determine what aspect of his game is most dominant, his ultimate confidence in his abilities, or the abilities themselves. Hischier bends the game to his will, and I don't recall an ineffective shift in this game. His shot selection, timing, passing, vision, skating, willingness to engage in physical play, leadership on and off the ice, work effort. It's all there in every shift he plays. A strong argument can be made that he is the best player in this draft class. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Olivier Bourret Note Top powerplay unit duties on the right half-boards Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Olivier Bourret Note Battles hard for loose pucks Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Olivier Bourret Note Pass to hard to handle for his point partner on the powerplay, and a bit off-target, too Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Olivier Bourret Note Strong skater, good mechanics, gets low with full, powerful extensions Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Olivier Bourret Summary Young winger with promise. Solid on his skates with above average speed and balance, and offensive potential. A 2018 draft prospect who needs to continue to work hard to develop his skills Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Playing wing on Groulx's line. Not making much of an impact, but always engaged in the play and around the puck. A good sign for better things to come. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note His return foot never gets back in front of his body. Needs some work to tighten that up. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Straightline speed with the puck is admirable, keeps the puck well out in front and gets good, long strides. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Note Nice board pass to spring a forward into the neutral zone Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Raphael Lavoie Summary As a 9/25/2000 birthdate, Lavoie is a 2019 draft prospect with good size at 6'3 177. Has only seen regular Halifax minutes over the last couple of months, but has 6 points in his last 14 games. Showed good speed, a solid hockey sense and ice awareness, but looks raw. At a draft-minus-2 player, however, he has a lot of time to improve and could be a top prospect going into his draft year. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 3/17/2017
Bowen Byram Note Disciplined on his penalty kill duties and positioning. Also, the 15-year-old has top pk unit duties Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Bowen Byram Note Makes his first really bad read in the these last two games: came out of his position on the right side of the crease and allows Blichfeld a hole for an easy step-up goal. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Caleb Jones Note Consistently accurate passes on the outlet or powerplay. Makes his passes easy to receive Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017

Cody Glass Note Gets good acceleration when he is already in stride. A complete skater. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017

Tyler Popowich Note Slushy first step, needs to get a better initial dig and drive power Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Tyler Popowich Note That first step weakness allows the quick McKenzie to get around him, and Popowich gets called for a penalty trying to keep McKenzie from a scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Tyler Popowich Note Good speed when he gets going, just needs a better burst Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/4/2017
Bowen Byram Note Plants a shoulder into the puck carrier, knocks him off the puck, and when another opposing forward grabs the loose puck and tries to go by him, Byram plants a shoulder into him, too, and knocks him off the puck as well. Serious physical play from the 15-year-old blueliner Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Bowen Byram Note Good balance, but needs to clean up his backward skating a bit. Fortunately, he has plenty of time to work on that before his draft year. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Bowen Byram Note Nice positioning against Glass one-on-one on the right-wing boards Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017

Bowen Byram Note In overtime, gets the puck behind his own net with Caleb Jones on him, and skates the puck into the neutral zone, showing his skating ability in a dead match against the fluid Jones. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Caleb Jones Note Starting to look more and more like his brother on the ice. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Cody Glass Note Not shy, but he doesn't initiate a lot of contact. He'll take a hit, but seems to prefer stick over shoulder. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017
Cody Glass Note On the penalty kill, wins a faceoff in his own zone, and when a teammate clears the puck, Glass chases down the opponent retrieving the puck, takes the puck away from him, waits and tries to find McKenzie coming into the zone but the puck is tipped away, A stellar play from Glass! Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Portland (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/3/2017

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

Cal Foote Note Locks up his man well in front of the net, ties up his stick, keeps good position Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Cal Foote Note Tries to go D to D on the blue line when the better play was to push the puck into the corner, and the result is a turnover and a rush the other way Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Cal Foote Summary Skates and pivots well at his size, and gets to the right spot in his own end. Strong on his feet. Engages in the offense but does not dazzle in any respect of the game. Good tools, though. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Ethan McIndoe Note Nice open-ice hit on the puck carrier breaks up a transition attempt Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Ethan McIndoe Note Consistently plants himself at the high slot area, but his linemates are not getting him the puck Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Ethan McIndoe Note Determined with the puck and I like his skating at his size Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Ethan McIndoe Note Unhappy with his effort in his own end late, down by three goals. I want him working at his hardest level right now, and he's not. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Jaret Anderson-Dolan Note Working hard on defense, even down 7-0 Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017

Jaret Anderson-Dolan Note Love the way the puck comes off his stick, both on shots and passes. Zero hesitation with the puck, no matter what situation he's in. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Jaret Anderson-Dolan Summary Lopsided game that saw his team down by a touchdown early, yet JAD worked just as hard on every shift throughout. He drives play in all three zones, and brings speed, acceleration and constent attack all over the ice. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Kole Lind Note Tries to dangle at the blue line and the puck is easily poked away by the defenseman Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Kole Lind Note Has a third gear when he really wants to get up ice, buts it has been 14 minutes into the game before he shows it off Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Kole Lind Note Does well to support the puck in all three zones Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Kole Lind Note Hands are not a quick as his mind wants them to be. He sees the play, but his stickhandling doesn't allow him to make it consistently Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Kole Lind Summary Good size, mobile, alert, works hard, but there is a lack of creativity and jump that concerned me in this game. Plays hard, but he looks more like a collection of good parts than a complete package. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Nolan Foote Note Strong stride covers a lot of distance Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Nolan Foote Summary Plays strong and at a good tempo, often looking imposing in the game despite being two years away from his draft year. Looks to be an impact player with his size and abilities. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Riley Woods Note Gets a big lean on his edges, with balance and quickness Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017

Riley Woods Note Receives a puck inside circle and snaps it five hole. Quick. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Ty Smith Note Wires a wrist shot far corner from range that the goalie could only wave at. A sniper's goal from the young defenseman. Brian Fogarty Kelowna vs Spokane (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/26/2017
Hudson Elynuik Note I like his game: size, hands, smart at both ends, plays with an assumed authority. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Hudson Elynuik Summary Big, hard-working forward with good skills and instincts who is the kind of player coaches always want available to make a play. The offense is there, but he's not a big scorer. His contributions to his NHL team will come in the form of getting and keeping puck possession and tilting the ice in his team's favor. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Jaret Anderson-Dolan Summary JAD was the best player on the ice, always controlling the tempo and flow of the play when he was in the ice. High-end vision and passing, a snappy release and highly accurate shot. He is a player to really watch over the next two months. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Jaret Anderson-Dolan Note Wicked backhand pass off the boards to the crease, with zip and accuracy Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017

Juuso Valimaki Note Nice 50/50 battle, leans into his opponent then uses his reach to reach out and poke the loose puck to a teammate Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Juuso Valimaki Summary Valimaki is a different player going forward than he is in his own end. When he has the puck, he has an above average first pass and starts breakouts with ease, but looks even more 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
Kailer Yamamoto Note Nobody can put a body on hims he has the puck, so he makes time and space for himself Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Kailer Yamamoto Note Superb first-step quickness and effortless skating. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Kailer Yamamoto Note Ducks under a check from Valimaki along the boards and finds an activating defender with a cross-crease pass. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Kailer Yamamoto Summary Has all the tools but the size. If he has the puck and a step or two, he can make bad things happen for the other team, but as he moves along in his career, and the opponents get bigger, faster, smarter and more experienced, he could find a wall too high to climb before he hits the NHL. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Keegan Kolesar Summary High energy player with speed and quickness and a nasty edge. Goes hard all the time, and usually leaves some bruises in his wake. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Mathew Barzal Summary Fast, agile, always has his head up. He was far and away the most talented player on the ice, but he seemed uninspired and disinterested in the game. Disappointed in him this viewing. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Morgan Geekie Note Takes the Valimaki pass and backhands to an open Sandhu for a tap-in goal Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017

Morgan Geekie Summary Happy to see him two days in a row, because although the holes in his skating are still there, the back-to-back games give a real impression of his game vision and intelligence. Savvy player who anticipates the game at a high level. Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017
Morgan Geekie Note Mobile and active, uses his body well to shield the puck and uses his feet to shake defenders Brian Fogarty Tri-City vs. Spokane (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/25/2017

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

Mathew Barzal Note Cuts throught the offensive zone with complete ease. Great on his feet. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017
Mathew Barzal Note Really quiet game. Down by five goals, I want to more energy from him Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017
Morgan Geekie Note Skating looks awkward and lacks power. Slow feet and no push. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017
Morgan Geekie Note Watching his feet closely. His edgework is decent, but average agility and his straightforward skating needs a lot of work. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017
Morgan Geekie Note Up 6-2, gets an unsportsmanlike penalty for arguing an offsides call that cancelled out a breakaway. A 10-minute misconduct that shows his compete and his impulse control. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs. Tri-City (WHL) Video (with replay) 2/24/2017
Clayton Keller Note Flys through the neutral zone and deep into the offensive zone with the puck 4-on-4. Lightning. Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017

Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson Note Needs to be more careful with his passing. Two or three times he has just tossed the puck to an opposing player. 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
Joe Sacco Note Playing bottom line minutes and hasn't seen much ice. Then suddenly a bounce finds him in front of the net and he pushes the puck wide left Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017

Kieffer Bellows Note 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
Kieffer Bellows Summary Plays a simple game and does it well. Needs work on his skating, but the compete level and work rate are pro level Brian Fogarty Boston U vs. New Hampshire (NCAA) Video (with replay) 2/18/2017

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

Denis Guryanov Note Short strides, which he'll need to improve to go move up to the top levels of hockey 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

Kirill Kaprizov Summary Highly skilled, speedy forward with excellent scoring potential. Not the biggest player on the ice, but he plays a strong game, with elusive quickness, and vision and hands to capitalize on plays with only the briefest of openings Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Mikhail Sergachev Note Big, strong, balanced and willing to work everywhere on the ice to win. Extremely difficult to play against Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Mikhail Sergachev Note Tosses smaller players aside with ease, and most every other player on the ice is smaller Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Mikhail Sergachev Summary Incredibly strong on his skates and positionally sound, a combination that makes forwards hesitant to go near him on the ice. He is a granite 6'3 and 216 pounds and he is still only 18, with balance and leg strength that allows him to absorb big hits from big players and send the them to the ice. He also has excellent up-ice vision and shot. Sergachev will be in the NHL by the time he is 20. Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Philippe Myers Note Poor decision in his own zone leads to a clean 1-on-1 shot from the slot Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Philippe Myers Note Myers has size, can skate, good offensive skills, but he has made several questionable decisions in this game Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Philippe Myers Summary Myers is a big defender at 6'5, 207 pounds, and his skating is above average or better. There are aspects of his game at this point that make me less optimistic than many commentators after his play thus far in the WJCs and at Philadelphia's camp in the fall. His decisions were questionable in several instances in this game, and he was often out of position on the ice. This player could be sizzling now, but is it long-term heat? I'm not sure at this point. 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
Pierre-Luc Dubois Summary Unless one was watching closely, it would be easy to say that Dubois was off his game, and he likely was a bit. But the skill and effort were there in bright moments. Big, intelligent player with high-end vision and skills and a willingness to use his body to make a play. Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016
Thomas Chabot Note 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
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

Tyson Jost Note So smart with his stick, both offensively and defensively Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016

Tyson Jost Note Jost plays with such tenacity on the forecheck and is simply terrorizing the opponent defenders Brian Fogarty Canada vs. Russia (WJC 2017) Video (with replay) 12/26/2016

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

Klim Kostin Note Halfway through the first and Kostin is coasting on a lot of plays. Gave up the puck easily in the defensive zone on one play by just lobbing it up the boards to no one in particular and the Swiss defense easily gets the puck back. Zachary DeVine Russia vs Switzerland (WJAC 2016) Stream 12/13/2016
JD Greenway Note 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
JD Greenway Summary A bit raw, Greenway needs to continue to work on his game, but he has all the tools to be a good NHL defenseman. Big, long arms and legs, smart reads in all three zones, but can be a bit sloppy at times. Future middle-pair NHL blueliner, though. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note A little slow in his hips flipping to backwards skating. Takes a small hop to add speed to the pivot, but that won't work at the higher levels of hockey. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note Quiet most of the game, but then he's alone in the high slot on a 3-on-2 and there is no doubt. Sniper. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note Pro shot with a tricky release, he is good at disguising the release point and leaves the goaltender frozen. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note Lots of movement while on the powerplay, but more floating than determined. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Note Great backcheck effort to disrupt a Lockwood shorthanded breakaway. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Kunin Summary Two goals in the game, both from his deadly mid-distance wrist shot. Seems to lack a high compete level, which bothers me. I want to see him go harder on every shift instead of waiting for the play to come to him. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Luke Martin Note Active stick, but follows the puck and loses his man who then gets to the net for a goal. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016

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

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

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

Will Lockwood Note Yet another offensive zone hit. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs. Wisconsin (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 12/9/2016
Martin Necas Summary Necas is a smaller, shifty player that is listed at under 150 pounds on EliteProspects.com but looks thicker than that, but not by much. His play against men in the top Czech league has been good in two viewings and shows a good nose for the puck. He isn’t afraid of attempting to put a hit on the opposition, but it usually isn’t that effective due to his lack of size. His skating is slightly above average but has good fluid transitions. More power could be used in his stride. His hands and vision both look very good and despite not seeing top six minutes, has generated at least two good looks for himself and his teammates in both games. Necas has physical limitations at this time, but smart play helps minimize their effects. He has been named to the preliminary WJC roster for the Czech Republic and it will be very interesting to see how he does against players of similar size and development. Zachary DeVine Kometa Brno vs Mountfield (CZE) Stream 12/9/2016
Alex Schoenborn Note Schoenborn gets body position and gets a chance on GIllies. Zachary DeVine Stockton at San Jose (AHL) Live 12/8/2016

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

Jon Gillies Note Gillies suburb stopping 28 of 30 shots. Gave up a bit of a weak backhander in the last seconds but had a number of big saves and excellent reads. Never out of position and uses the big pillows well down low. Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs Stockton (AHL) Stream 11/30/2016
Lucas Wallmark Note Lucas Wallmark is a hard summer with a skating coach away from being a player with the Canes. Very smart, good reads. Feet keeping him back Zachary DeVine Charlotte vs Stockton (AHL) Stream 11/30/2016

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.

Otto Somppi Note Somppi’s a good net presence and not afraid of some extracurricular activities that come with being a net presence. Zachary DeVine Moncton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Stream 11/27/2016
Timothy Liljegren Summary Liljegren is considered the top defender in the 2017 NHL entry draft and it is easy to see why. After a bout of mono to start the 2016-17 season, he has quickly come back for Rogle and been a steady, calm presence for one of the weaker teams in the SHL. Liljegren’s skating ability is excellent and fluid. Transitions and edge work are exemplary. Skating with the puck is impressive, carrying the play up ice with his head up and ready to make a play. He has a good shot overall, but can be prone to firing from deep on the blueline with little chance of effectiveness. Would like to see a bit more patience with shots from the point. However when considering he is a 17-year-old defender who is entering his second professional season with Rogle, and considering his position, Lilegren is one of the very top players and should be off the board quickly. Zachary DeVine Rogle vs Brynas (SHL) Stream 11/26/2016
Lias Andersson Summary Andersson has been a mainstay on HV71’s third line and been a contributor to the teams success. Overall, points aren’t coming as hoped but the youngster has not looked out of place or intimidated by the level of competition in the top Swedish league. Andersson has decent height at 5’11 but is very well built at nearly 200 pounds and uses the size well. He can float a bit defensively, but keeps his feet moving in the offensive zone and while not an explosive skater, it isn’t a knock either. Has the work ethic, defensive awareness and skill to package nicely as a second line center in the NHL if his development stays the course. Currently projects as a player in the top half of the first round. Zachary DeVine HV71 vs Luela (SHL) Stream 11/26/2016
Kale Clague Note Clague makes decisions so quickly with the puck on his stick. Impressive decisions to get the shot through or pass. Zachary DeVine Brandon vs Saskatoon (WHL) Stream 11/25/2016
Stelio Mattheos Note Mattheos twice in the first period just coasted a bit and waited for the puck when I thought he could have got in the scrum and influenced play. Zachary DeVine Brandon vs Saskatoon (WHL) Stream 11/25/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Vesalainen still no points but is not for lack of effort. Playing hard, going to the net, and chippy as well. Feel like the first point will open the flood gates. Zachary DeVine JYP vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/24/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Strong move down the wing at the net by Vesalainen, big defensive effort saves a goal Zachary DeVine JYP vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/24/2016
Urho Vaakanainen Note Vaakanainen transitions well from forward to backward. Edge work solid Zachary DeVine JYP vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/24/2016
Urho Vaakanainen Note Would like to see more authority on the passes from Vaakanainen. Plays are good, just want to see more zip on them. Zachary DeVine JYP vs HPK (Liiga) Stream 11/24/2016
Derek Gentile Note Whiffs on a puck in the offensive zone, tries to recover and gives the puck away. Not a good sequence of choices. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Derek Gentile Note Made a play I didn't like at all by turning up ice away from his teammate trying to exit the zone, leaving no opportunity for a clean exit pass, and led to a turnover. Would have been smarter to support the breakout instead of trying to get clear in the neutral zone Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Derek Gentile Summary Not an impressive showing from the small forward. He was unnoticeable for most of the game, and made some poor choices. Gentile has quickness, and looks like a player who could develop, but he's definitely a project at this young age. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Maxime Fortier Note On the powerplay, got off three shot attempts, but nothing overly dangerous Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Maxime Fortier Note Fortier can fly--his straightline speed is remarkable Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Maxime Fortier Summary Fortier is speed, acceleration and drive. He is not necessarily crafty with the puck, but does not hesitate to shoot and finds space whenever available. I didn't see him really generate offense on his own, however, though a lot of that might be due to Hischier running the offense and they share ice time. Hard to tell if he is a quality offensive player or complementing Hischier's game right now. I'd like to see him play without such an obvious playmaker. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Note Great change of direction that left a defender scrambling to recover Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Note There have been at least three times this game where Hischier has a made a play while down on the ice. Never gives up in the offensive zone. Will he develop that same tenacity on D? If so, he'll become a highly dangerous and effective player. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Summary The best player on the ice, without question. Hischier needs to spend some more effort on the backcheck and in the defensive zone, but his play in his own end is not a liability and will improve. His offensive skills and speed are excellent, and his vision is excellent or better. He shows great awareness and patience on the ice, and was untouchable when he had the puck on his stick. He should be a top choice for the 2017 draft Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Note Rang the crossbar, then gathered the puck and sent a nice pass to Fortier for a one-timer Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Note Solid technique moving the puck up ice, one hand on the stick, puck well out in front of him, head up surveying the ice, power and speed though his whole body Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Note Nice backhand pass to hit a striding Fortier for a long-distance one-timer that caused problems Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016

Nico Hischier Note Terrific body positioning in the circle, and tricky, tricky backhand shot that came from nowhere, but on replay was well-thought out in advance. Really smart play. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Nico Hischier Note Sees an opening on the short side and slaps one direct on target for a clean goal Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note Good work to get back to his own blue line to chase down a puck, but instead of collecting the puck and gaining good possession, he just slapped a blind backhand back to center ice and straight to a Quebec attacker. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note I like his physicality and attention to defense. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note Another blind backhand pass, a habit he really needs to break Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note Somppi's energy is well-suited for the penalty kill, where he is good at hounding the points and half-boards Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Summary Somppi plays with gusto and seems constantly active when he is on the ice, but he lacks offensive creativity. He plays the body and will take the puck to the net, but he looks like the very definition of a north-south player. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note Draws a tripping penalty, but he wasn't moving his feet Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note Energetic, but looks a bit disconnected between his feet, hands and eyes. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Otto Somppi Note Good speed at the top end, but I haven't seen a lot of explosive acceleration. First couple of steps can seem sluggish Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Note Good stickwork to break up an opportunity for a Halifax defensive-zone exit Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Note Stable on his skates, but has that youthfulness in his skating that will develop over the next year-plus and give him better power and quicker returns on his stride. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Note Great job off the puck during a 2-on-1 to get squared and ready for a one-timer, which he guided far post past a sliding Gravel Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Note There's a lot to like about his offensive game, but I'd like to see more willingness to endure contact and get bruised up a bit to make a play Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Note Not the best choice in the closing seconds of the tied game, could have gone back to the point to an advancing defender and a chance for a big one-timer, but instead went backhand to the slot and the play was broken up. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Summary Looks bigger than his listed 5'11 height, has a good reach and balance that allows him to take up space. His offensive instincts and ability to convert chances is above average or better, and he should further develop is game over this season and next before his draft. His production at draft-year minus one is highly encouraging, to say the least. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs. Quebec (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/24/2016

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

Otto Somppi Note Good defensive play by Sommpi. Sealed the post and knocks the puck back behind the net. Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016

Philipp Kurashev Note Quebec running a lot of its power play through Kurashev. Almost predictably so. Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016
Philipp Kurashev Note Kurashev loses the dangle and doesn’t get a shot off. Zachary DeVine Halifax vs Ramparts (QMJHL) Steam 11/24/2016

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

Casey Mittelstadt Note Getting double-shifted down by a goal in the third period. Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
Casey Mittelstadt Note Wow! Carries the puck up ice on the powerplay, enters the offensive zone, and from just inside the blueline he rips the puck past the goaltender, who was so fooled by the shot that he barely moved. Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
Casey Mittelstadt Summary The offensive skills are excellent, with a deceptive and startlingly quick release. His vision and leadership in the offensive zone are reflective of his ability to think the game at a high level. Not a blazing skater, but not deficient, and good ability to maintain speed at a glide. The one thing lacking in this game seemed to be an urgency to make things happen on every shift. Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
Casey Mittelstadt Note Constantly in motion in the defensive zone, but leads a breakout pass just a bit too much Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016

Mario Ferraro Note Takes the puck into the offensive zone as his line gets a change Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016

Mario Ferraro Note Always looking to jump into the rush Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016
Mario Ferraro Summary Ferraro plays the game like a forward who is too often caught in his own end and trying to get back up to his wing position. Smart, with good quickness and poise on defense, but he'd rather be carrying the puck up ice, it seems. Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/5/2016

JD Dudek Summary Skating is the key here, with the hope that the rest of the tools develop into a quality player. If not, he'll be a career AHLer. Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Luke Kunin Note Would like to see him engage more physically in front of his own net Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016

Luke Kunin Note Kunin with a poor pass that looked like he just lost concentration for a second Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016
Luke Kunin Summary Kunin is a player with all of the skills and talent to be a great player, expect he seems to lack that spark that sets the special players apart from the rest.

Max Zimmer Note PK time in a game full of penalties Brian Fogarty Wisconsin vs Boston College (NCAA) Streaming 10/16/2016

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

Brinson Pasichnuk Summary Hockey sense seems lacking and his skating needs work. He seems to have good effort and abilities, and may improve over time, but right now I don't see a lot of NHLer in him. Brian Fogarty Arizona State vs Notre Dame (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 10/8/2016

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

Martin Necas Summary Hard-effort game, good quickness and a willingness to get to the net, but nothing really impressive in this game. Some sloppy play at times and poor decisions. He has tools, though, and will need more viewings to get a good read on his abilities Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016

Michael Pastujov Note Good backhand pass to set up Poehling for the goal. Was crowded by penalty killers but managed to get to the loose puck and make the difficult pass look easy Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016

Michael Pastujov Summary On the same line with Poehling, Pastujov was on the ice all game it seemed. His hard work and good hands helped set up a couple of the Poehling goals. Pastujov can skate, with above average speed but did not look blazingly fast by any means. Showed high-end vision throughout the game. Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Ostap Safin Note Soft hands in the corner, finds Chytil in the slot for a quick goal. The pass was weighted and targetted exactly as needed Brian Fogarty USA v CZE (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016

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

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

Adam Ruzicka Summary Easily the best player among the Slovakian forwards, he drove the play for his team all night long. Looked dangerous on every shift, and worked hard at both ends of the ice. A smart, balanced player with good size who can skate. Brian Fogarty SVK v RUS (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Alexej Lipanov Note Quick, but small, uses his low center of gravity well to lean through defenders and puts a quick wrist shot off the crossbar. Brian Fogarty SVK v RUS (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016

Filip Krivosik Note Looks like he really wants to be better than he is at this point. He has good size and works hard, but just a cut below where he needs to be. Brian Fogarty SVK v RUS (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016
Filip Krivosik Summary Showed a solid effort and has good size, but seemed a step slow and a half-tick late on everything. Needs to develop his raw skills and get up to the speed of the game. Brian Fogarty SVK v RUS (Hlinka 2016) Video (With Replay) 8/10/2016

Mitch Marner Note I still see too much “juniors” play in Marner’s game. He isn’t getting away with it nearly as much here at NJEC due to the higher level of competition. He’ll get even less of it in Leafs camp. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada Practice Live 8/3/2016
Tyson Jost Note Jost's release is deadly. Comes off his stick so fast and at speed. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada Practice Live 8/3/2016
Alex DeBrincat Note Filthy centering pass from Debrincat to Logan Brown. First time either have been impactful offensively in the camp. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Caleb Jones Note Jones hops more than he transitions Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Caleb Jones Note Parts of Caleb Jones’s vision worry me. He can hone in on a play and not see his teammates, both with the puck and defensively, as well. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Charlie McAvoy Note MacAvoy saves a goal diving for the puck. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Charlie McAvoy Note Good defensive play by MacAvoy Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Clayton Keller Note Keller in the mix of everything good doing for Team USA right now. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Erik Foley Note Foley with good quick hands after a great centering pass. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Filip Gustavsson Note Gustavsson can’t quite squeeze the pads and a goal trickles through. Should have had that one. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Filip Gustavsson Note Gustavsson keeps the shoulders back and takes up a massive amount of net Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Jack Ahcan Note Jack Ahcan with a perfect open ice hit to separate the man from the puck. Great read Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Jack Roslovic Note Roslovic with a slick pass to Foley in front of the net. Drew the defenders out to get the pass through Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Jens Looke Note Jens Looke with an off-wing shot that goes through Woll. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Jens Looke Note Looke again with a snap shot. Good placement. Right place right time Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Joel Eriksson Ek Note Eriksson Ek has been a force all camp. Plays big, good net presence. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Jordan Greenway Note Jordan Greenway is a handful. Physical shift pays off and is parked in front of the net for a rebound opportunity. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Kailer Yamamoto Note Yamamoto continues to make hits all over the ice. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Kailer Yamamoto Note Yamamoto will take a hit on the boards and appear moments later in front of the net. Elusive player. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Lias Andersson Note Andersson with a nice pass to setup the second Looke goal. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Lias Andersson Note Lias Andersson going very well today. Skating to the net and playing a very stout game. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Logan Brown Note Logan Brown has been quiet. Flashes of stick-handling but quiet Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Marcus Davidsson Note Reads the rebound and puts it right back on net. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Oskar Steen Note Steen having a quiet game. Not getting much done. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Ryan Lindgren Note Lindgren plays great angles and sees the ice very well. Smart player who picks the perfect time to carry the puck up ice. Not afraid of pressure Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Tage Thompson Note Another strong shift by Thompson. Having a great camp and been noticeable in every period Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Tage Thompson Note Thompson tenacious on the forecheck and creates a scoring chance and offensive faceoff out of nothing. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Troy Terry Note Good hard shot by Terry gets the puck through Gustavsson’s pads Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Sweden Live 8/2/2016
Brock Boeser Note Boeser’s shot is excellent. Quick release, hard shot. Accurate. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA Practice Live 8/2/2016
Luke Martin Note Martin plays his angles well. Stick nearly always in a good spot to make the pass or shot harder. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA Practice Live 8/2/2016
Brett Howden Summary Howden has a good motor but too many timeS the puckhandling skills have not allowed him to do much with the puck. He will be an NHL player some day, but the offensive upside that many hope for from him was not on display at NJEC. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Brett Howden Note Howden does not have good puck skills. Losing the handle on nearly every puck Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Brett Howden Note Howden's passes often miss the mark Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Note Tolvanen is small, but not afraid of laying a hit on players. Good at neutralizing the play, maybe not inflicting damage Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Note A lot more jump in Tolvanen’s game today. Adjustment to the time zone and ice surface likely a big factor. The rest was there in spurts, now every shift. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Note Tolvanen with a goal scorer's goal. Snipe of a shot to tie the game. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Henri Jokiharju Note Good stick by Jokiharju late in the 3rd on Tyson Jost. Stayed with the player but knocked the puck away and into the corner. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Jakob Chychrun Note Still worried a bit about Chychrun. Some of his plays wth the puck were very sloppy in the first period. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Janne Kuokkanen Note Kuokkanen is being keyed in on by Team Canada, interested to see how he can deal with all the attention defensively. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Janne Kuokkanen Note Kuokkanen not a blazing fast skater, play going end to end and he’s having a bit of trouble Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Jeremy Roy Note Roy with a great carry up ice, Tolvanen hounding him on every stride Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Julius Nattinen Note Great pressure by Ruotsalinen and Nattinen on the last shift. Had Canada hemmed in the defensive zone. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Juuso Valimaki Note Valimaki’s shot almost goes in, somehow got it through Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Kasper Bjorkqvist Note Bjorkqvist with a good centering pass that the winger isn’t ready for. Good read Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Kasper Bjorkqvist Note Bjorkqvist passing way too much Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Kasper Bjorkqvist Note Bjorkqvist with a clear line to the net and dishes for a poor shot on goal. Needs to be more selfish. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Kasper Bjorkqvist Note Bjorkqvist's transitions need attention, it’s more of a hop around than pivoting Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Vesalainen does it all for Finland. Out on the PP, top line, and now out on the PK Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Vesalainen a few times has covered for pinching defender. Good awareness of where his teammates are on the ice and doing an overall good job. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Vesalainen taking a bit too long to get his shot off, Canada whacking at his stick as often as possible Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Vesalainen with a solid hit on Kolesar. Has been one of the more physical Finn forwards Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Michael McLeod Note McLeod is blazingly fast. Insane how much ice he can cover in the blink of an eye Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Pierre-Luc Dubois Note Dubois hitting hard , and often Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Thomas Chabot Note Chabot taking the stick and not the body. Needs to dump a player that comes that close to him and puts the puck in his skates. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Thomas Chabot Note Chabot puts a hard shot off the post. Impressive game thus far from him Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Travis Konecney Summary Konecney is the best forward on the ice for Canada. Making things happen, creatively a football-style pass that Crouse can bring down like a receiver. Good game from the PHL product. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Travis Konecney Note Konecney barely misses short side high on the feed from Jost Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Tyson Jost Note Jost with a strong backcheck saves a Tolvanen goal. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Veini Vehvalainen Note Really not sure what Finland will do if Vehvilainen is the option for them at WJC. Has not looked good. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Vili Saarijarvi Note Saarijarvi with some good footwork to breakup a play with no stick he broke in the other zone. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Canada vs Team Finland Live 8/2/2016
Brock Boeser Summary Boeser’s skating and nose for the net served him well at the NJEC. His decision making at times was a bit slow, but the right play was always seen. His release is among the best on any team, maybe top 10 of the prospects outside of the NHL. Was a key offensive driver on Team USA. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Cal Foote Summary Easy to see why Foote is considered a top prospect in the 2017 Draft. Already physically developed, he is the latest to come out of the Kelowna Rockets defenseman factory. Decisions were good with and without the puck, skating is above average, defensive game beyond his years. First round talent with zero doubt. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Caleb Jones Summary Continues to confuse me. At times has solid puck skills and good decisions. Next shift is selfish and forcing plays while carrying the puck. Has a tendency to skate himself right out of the play as well. Physical tools are there, but the on-ice awareness and use of teammates has to be much better. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Carl Grundstrom Summary Seemed to be a off week for Grundstrom. Other times I have seen him he has been a solid, hardworking, two-way player. Numerous times he did not keep his feet moving and it cost Sweden a chance or a play. He’s better than he showed here. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Carter Hart Summary Always amazing to watch, Hart's anticipation sets him apart. He isn’t as athletic as some of his peers, but he does not have to be. He sees and thinks the game at a level far higher than normal at this level. Three years of development and he could easily be seen as a goaltender in the NHL. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Casey Fitzgerald Summary Understated and simple game, Fitzgerald had a lot of physical plays for Team USA. He was one of the few big bodies at camp and made sure he was sound defensively and careful with the puck. With so many skilled puck movers paired with him, not much was seen offensively, but he knew his role. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Casey Mittelstadt Summary Underwhelming performance for the highly-touted Minnesota product. Looked timid and confused at times on the ice with the older skilled players, even if he had the same or more skill than they. The speed of the game was a challenge for him. Mittlestadt will return to play high school hockey this fall and couple that with USHL time. I think this is a mistake. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Chad Krys Summary Krys was a faller for me in the 2016 draft and this camp only confirmed it for me. Defensively he is unreliable and can over stickhandle with the puck. Positioning when he’s without the puck looks unsure and the size is missing as well. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Charlie McAvoy Summary His game is growing on me after a few mediocre viewings last year. Offensively he was solid and made a lot of plays happen. Defensively he was better but timing and zone reads need to improve further. MacAvoy has all the raw tools, but they are very raw. I view him as a bit of a project defenseman with massive upside. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Clayton Keller Summary Almost nothing left to say about Keller that hasn’t been talked about a lot at Hockey Prophets. His vision is elite, his hands extraordinary and his shot above average. He will tear up the NHL once he puts 15-20 pounds of muscle on his frame. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Dante Fabbro Summary In a bad showing for Team Canada, Fabbro was a single bright spot on defense. Coming from the BCHL, there were questions about the level of competition he was against, but after the U18s and NJEC, it is put to rest. A lock for the WJC roster. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
David Bernhardt Summary Bernhardt's skating was an area of real concern. Not a lot of power is generated and defensively his edge work and overall foot work need help. When he kept his game simple, he had a higher chance of success. Not an overly flashy player. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Dylan Strome Summary Strome will be with the Coyotes this year, he’s ready. Won’t be available for the WJC due to NHL ice time. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Summary If he were 4” taller there might be a Matthews/Laine-type battle between Patrick/Tolvanen. He’s lethal in a shooting lane. Hyper accurate, lightning release and a lot behind the shot when you consider his size. Skating is above average and has a mean streak in his game. Familiar with the North American game due to his time in the USHL, he needs to add muscle but the package of skills he possesses is marvelous. Top 10 player. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Erik Foley Summary Erik Foley was a revelation of a player at NJEC. He’s a solid, thick frame with good skating ability with a north/south style of game. He showed some patience with the puck and goal scoring ability, which is key in the professional ranks. Foley was a highly intelligent and self-aware young man when speaking with him. A complete package prospect. Still in college, but the Jets found another gem. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Felix Sandstrom Summary The WJC veteran was steady and impressive again at camp. Sweden’s defense gave up a lot of shots and Felix hung tough in both of his starts. Hard to imagine any other goalie starting for Sweden while Sandstrom is around. His size, mental approach, and athletic prowess is hard to match. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Gabriel Carlsson Summary Highly impressed with the two-way game of Carlsson. Was sent out every other shift for team Sweden. Defensively a rock, offensively conservative. He has good first-pass ability, but not much power play upside. The strength on his shots were very average, but accurate. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Gustav Bouramman Summary Constantly making bad plays with the puck. Passes were sloppy, looked outclassed on the ice. Constantly surprised by the speed of the opposition, not a good sign at this level. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Henri Jokiharju Summary One of the three 2017 defenders Finland brought to NJEC, but the best. Slated to play for Portland Winterhawks next season. Jokiharju is small but had a number of very good reads and was responsible on both ends of the ice. Skating is above average as well. His shot is weak and he’ll need to add a lot of lean mass. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Jack Ahcan Summary One of the smaller players at NJEC, Ahcan is a smooth skating defenseman who most of the time makes a positive contribution with the puck. At only 5’8 there is an obvious physical disadvantage but the hockey IQ is good and he was able to out-think and out-position forwards much of the time. Ahcan was the USHL’s defender of the year in 2016 and is a dark horse for the WJC squad. Undrafted the last two years as a 1997 birthdate. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Jack Roslovic Summary Paired often with fellow Jets prospect Erik Foley, the two had a chemistry together and their games were a big compliment. Roslovic is a shifty skater with good vision and operates at speed. His shifts were noticeable as he was buzzing around the ice, causing havoc and positively influencing play. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Janne Kuokkanen Summary Really impressive camp for Kuokkanen. He played the game he needed to, was part of solid plays on both ends of the ice. He has some skating issues but nothing that can’t be fixed with a summer or two of keen attention. His game doesn’t slow down with the puck on his stick. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Jens Looke Summary Another good showing for Looke. Deceptive offensive upside and gets some very good chances with good on-ice awareness to quick reads. Every time I see him he’s looked better so the improvement and progression are another key positive as well. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Joel Eriksson Ek Summary The captain of Team Sweden put in a fantastic effort. He lead by example on the ice with his high intensity of play. Offensively he’s always been good, but showed a number of very high-skill plays. His development has to be considered ahead of schedule and a higher output than expected. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Jonathan Dahlen Summary The son of Ulf Dalhen, watching Jonathan skate brings back memories. He plays a very “Euro” game and struggled when the play got physical. He senses pressure and saw the ice well and I see him more as a playmaker than a shooter, but showed talent when ripping a shot off, as well. He wasn’t afraid to get in front of the net and did have a very nice tip-in goal, as well. His acceleration was below average. His overall speed was acceptable but the first steps need to be sorted out along with pivoting. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Jordan Greenway Summary 6’6 and 220+ pounds is hard to move in the NHL, and at the Junior level it is nearly impossible. Greenway is a power forward in the classic variety. A good enough skater, rather go through you, and the goals come from in close. Was a force in front of the net and created space with his physical brand of hockey. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Juuso Valimaki Summary His time in the WHL with Tri-Cty was evident. Valimaki was one of the 2017 defenders that Finland leaned heaily on and he didn’t disappoint. He’s an interesting mix of talent and raw ability and being over in North America already certainly will help with scouts' viewings of him. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Kailer Yamamoto Summary Only 5’8 the younger of the Yamamoto brothers went from a tentative partner of Casey Mittlestadt to a full contributor on a line with Clayton Keller and Kieffer Bellows. After two full years in the WHL you have to believe that the “Dub” was the best place to see if a smaller player like Kailer can survive. His point totals have been there, his leadership is noted and he has that elusive slipperiness you want in smaller players to go with a good amount of dynamic unpredictability. Spokane is retooling this year, so it will be interesting to see how Kailer’s season progresses. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Kieffer Bellows Summary Bellows game hasn’t changed much, he’s just become bigger, meaner, and better. The idea of Bellows on the wing of John Tavares is insane. Bellows' skating looked better but the silly penalties remain. The heaviness of his shot and how we can get to both the soft and hard parts of the ice, Bellows will be a force at any level of hockey with those tools. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Summary The other of the Finnish wingers, Vesalainen has size, puck handling and shot that coaches dream about. He’s played in the SHL (oddly) but got 19 games in with Frolunda’s men’s club. He can have a tendency to drift wide on plays, but he’s relentless without the puck, plays a very strong defensive game for his age and not afraid of physical play. Might be a top 5 player next summer. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Logan Brown Summary Brown at NJEC reminded me more of the October - January Logan we saw last year: flashes of brilliant and stretches of invisibility. With such talented wingers and defensemen around him, he should have been far more impactful on games. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Luke Kunin Summary Kunin was great at the NCAA level and plays a tough brand of hockey. His release and shot are excellent and skating is good too but he could get more power out of his lateral movements. His stride is fine, it is more the technical and thus highly correctable areas that need some work. The intangible items are there as a shooter. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Luke Martin Summary The only 2017-eligible defender for Team USA, the NTDP product is looking more and more like a first round pick. He has the size and skating with an underrated zone exiting pass and heavy shot from the point. He’ll head to the NCAA next year as a true freshman and I think he’ll more than handle himself. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Marcus Davidsson Summary A so-so showing for the 2017 draft eligible. He had the chops to hang in but a lot of times seemed to lack confidence with and without the puck. Timid at times, but when stops overthinking and plays hockey, it shows through. Will be interesting to see him play in more comfortable surroundings. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Mitch Marner Summary Magician with the puck, fast as lightning, and completely not playing the type of game he has to in order to survive professional hockey. Things that he got away with in London didn’t fly here at NJEC and they will never work in the NHL. Marner doesn’t look to have filled out at all, another major red flag. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Oskar Steen Summary Steen worked his butt off on every shift, every practice, and never took a shift off. His hockey sense is OK, but the motor and compete levels are excellent. I think there is untapped offensive ability there as well. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Otto Somppi Summary Slid in the draft due, I think, to the Halifax fire sale. Somppi doesn’t have massive offensive upside but does everything very well. Size will be a knock on him, but he plays with some grit and knows he is a complementary player and plays in his known role. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Rasmus Asplund Summary No holes in his game, that is the key with Rasmus Asplund. He was a key player for Sweden in every game and while might not have been elite at anything, no holes are in his game either. Just a normal development curve and he could be an above average player who plays solidly on both sides of the ice. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Riley Tufte Summary Looked out of place on the ice. His time at the high school level and not in juniors really showed. His skating stride will need a lot of work. It will be interesting to see how he adapts this season. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Ryan Lindgren Summary The hallmarks of a Ryan Lindgren game: steady defensive play, hard in front of the net, smart passes, leading by example. That’s all game every game. Bonafide leader, surefire professional. Won’t wow you with his plays, but will never disappoint either. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Samuel Girard Summary Girard’s offensive ability is well known and was visible on many of his shifts at NJEC. Skating backwards and defending however is another matter all together. He doesn’t have good size and coupled with a so-so defensive zone game, there is a lot of work to be done to prepare Girard for the pro game. The good news is this is completely fixable and some solid coaching and time is all that is needed. He’ll have to use some of that vision to help him in the corners but again, all correctable. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Tage Thompson Summary Steal of the first round. Had six points at the NJEC and was making a massive impact on the game every single shift. Skating, size, hands, vision, a complete package. Time at UCONN will help him fill out physically, if he can do that, 1-2 years from NHL duty. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Thomas Novak Summary Every year is a better year for Tommy Novak. He has a great shot and elusive skating ability. His first step shakes a lot of defenders and helps him get the space he needs to get his shot off. Defensively he still has work to do, especially reading the defensive play. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Tyler Parsons Summary Athletically the best goalie at NJEC. His reflexes and sheer physical play is in a class by itself. His positioning and footwork however, are areas of concern. He is a “battle” goalie who fights to make the saves, and I have not seen that succeed as well in the professional ranks. The technical aspects of the game will need work for Parsons to continue his development. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Tyson Jost Summary Jost is the player that Mitch Marner wants to be. He isn’t as fast as Marner, but Jost is thick, quick with the puck, a laser, accurate shot and a release that fools goalies. Jost plays the right way and a very honest brand of hockey but with a very very high level of skill. His skating is near elite and defensively he is part of the game as well. Teams could do much worse in a center and he’ll be in the NHL after a quick layover at North Dakota this fall. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Veini Vehvalainen Summary Alternating between unbeatable and completely lost, the consistency is again lacking for Vehvilainen. He has some good physical tools, and positionally he is okay, but either the mental preparation, puck tracking--something--is out of whack, or goes out of whack easily. He needs to solve it, he’s too good not to. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016
Vili Saarijarvi Summary Very mixed bag week. Would wonder around, poor positional play defensively, some plays inspired others a bit clunky. Had some good defensive plays deep but then some poor decisions in the center ice areas. Also noticed he doesn’t seem to like to pivot with a forward close to him, he’ll try to angle him into the boards instead of getting back and driving wide. Risky at times and it was a 50/50 gamble. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 8/2/2016

Max Jones Summary Max Jones game is one built on speed and tenacity but the lack of hockey sense, in terms of the ability to play within the rules and on the line instead of blowing though it.

The translation of his offensive ability is likely limited, but could be a greasy area goal scorer who relies on his speed to beat players to positions.

Oskar Steen Note Steen working hard on his shot, Asplund helping out with good passes Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Sweden Practice Live 7/29/2016
Christian Fischer Summary Fischer has the wheels and compete level for the pro game, not sure the offensive upside is there. His ability to play both with and without the puck was good and not a single second of any shift was taken off. Hard working doesn’t begin to describe him, could have made better decisions offensively and not a lot of creativity. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 7/29/2016
Jake Oettinger Summary Jake Oettinger is a top goalie in 2017. Quiet feet, could use more power in lateral movements. Calm, deliberate in net. Exceedingly smart, reads the plays well. Shades of Carter Hart’s game. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - NJEC Live 7/29/2016
Henri Jokiharju Note Jokiharju a RHD with good skating, aggressive from the blueline. Physically will need time, only 5’9. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Henri Jokiharju Note Jokiharju not shying away from challenging for the puck. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Henri Jokiharju Note Jokiharju doesn’t have much on his shot. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Henri Jokiharju Note Jokiharju still very thin, physically immature Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Henri Jokiharju Note Jokiharju with two good stick checks to clear the puck on the PK in drills. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Janne Kuokkanen Note Kuokkanen’s release is excellent. Skating power could be refined, but skates well overall. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Vesalainen has a heavy shot. Good power. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Vesalainen is one of the more talented Finns at NJEC. He has the size and ability but can stay or stray to the perimeter for spells. Will go to the center of the ice, but it’s not a given and an issue at times. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Vesalainen has a big shot that he can get off in a hurry Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Vesalainen has pro-size and is very young, but 6’3 already. Played half a season in the SHL Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Markus Ruusu Note Ruusu looking solid, tracking puck well and dealing with rebounds. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Otto Somppi Note Love Otto Somppi’s game. No idea how he went 206th overall. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Otto Somppi Note Somppi right in the middle of most plays. Needs to add some muscle to play his style of game at the next level. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Otto Somppi Note Somppi has a motor. Wants to be in every drill. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Otto Somppi Note Somppi speed is average overall. Keeps up, but not driving the play. Uses teammates effectively. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Finland Practice Live 7/29/2016
Charlie McAvoy Note MacAvoy turned around twice on the same drill. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Blue Practice Live 7/29/2016
Logan Brown Note Brown’s crossovers could use some refinement, not getting much power, but fluid and quick Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Blue Practice Live 7/29/2016
Logan Brown Note Brown vision stands out in his drills Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Blue Practice Live 7/29/2016
Logan Brown Note Brown needs more power from his crossover so he can drive back to the center of the ice. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Blue Practice Live 7/29/2016
Luke Kunin Note Kunin’s skating is choppy but hands are excellent. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Blue Practice Live 7/29/2016
Max Jones Note Jones working hard in drills. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Blue Practice Live 7/29/2016
Tanner Laczynski Note Tanner Laczynski just finds the back of the net. Good release. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Blue Practice Live 7/29/2016
Alexander Nylander Note Great read on the backcheck to intercept a pass, then quickly passed for a transition and then went to the front of the net of a pass than never came Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Note Intense on defense in the neutral zone in the first period, active stick hassling transitioning forwards. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Note Good read to intercept a pass in his defensive zone Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Note Gets his stick lifted and puck taken away Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Note The kind of play that makes one insane while watching Nylander: backchecking the puck carrier, then lifts off the gas at the blue line, giving his opponent a clean zone entry. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Note If you want someone who will be always on the move during the powerplay, then Nylander is not your player. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Note Hands are equally good receiving pucks as he is handling them Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexander Nylander Summary Another game in which Nylander displayed superb hand skills, and a lack of urgency that is maddening. There is no doubting his talent, which is NHL-calibre to be certain, but at times his compete level is questionable, at best. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Note Scores a top of the crease goal on a top-level wrist shot that seemed to fool the Swedish goaltender. Quick hands. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Summary Tolvanen is an exciting young player who has all of the skills to be a top prospect and still has plenty of room to improve. Quick and well-balanced, and a finely-tuned sense of positional play in all zones. Could be equally as good on the penalty kill as on the powerplay. A player to watch closely over the next twelve months. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Note Creative puckhandling to try to get around a defender at the blue line Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Note Uses speed to turn the corner and get around the D and take the puck to the net Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Note Sets a pick behind the net which allows Tuulola to swing around and snap in a short-side goal. Tolvanen showing good body postion and awareness Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Note Throws a good forecheck hit along the offensive zone end boards Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Note Changes gears really well, with a sharp acceleration at any speed Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Note Solid defensive zone play, responsible and well-positioned. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Note Nice gap-control play in his own end, forced a turnover Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Eeli Tolvanen Note Needs better strength to handle hits against him. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Elias Pettersson Note Nice hit along the boards to rub the puck carrier off of the play Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Elias Pettersson Note Battling in front of the net Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Elias Pettersson Note Playing hard, picking up his team with skills and energy Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Elias Pettersson Note Nice, soft hands both receiving and dishing out passes. Calm with his stick. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Elias Pettersson Note Races for a soft chipped in puck, meets Salo at the puck, drives into him with his shoulder to get position and possession. Keeps his balance and takes the puck behind the net to start an offensive sequence. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Elias Pettersson Note Took a good angle to the puck and broke up a play in the neutral zone, as his speed matched Puljujarvi's Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Elias Pettersson Note Good example of his hockey sense: down low on the powerplay and the pass from the half-boards missed him by four feet, so he spun and caught the puck off the endboards, swivelled around the net, and placed a backhand pass to the slot for a one-time chance that was saved. Heady play with skill. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Elias Pettersson Summary High work rate player with skills to match. He has a tall frame that will fill out over the next couple of years, but he already brings a physical component to the ice and is will to make a smart hit, but more importantly, he often goes straight to the net, with or without the puck. He is a player who helps energize his team, he is an above average skater with deceptive speed. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Erik Brannstrom Note Quck, alert, constantly working to get position Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Erik Brannstrom Summary Highly intelligent, highly skilled defender who anticipates the play better than most players on the ice. Quick on his feet forward and backwards. His passing is superb, including long headman passes and cross-ice, one-touch passes on the tape with the perfect weight to make them easy to recieve. Never stops moving, and his ability to map out the play in front of him means that he is always aware of what his next move will be. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Erik Brannstrom Note Reads the play well, doesn't hesitate when he gets the pcuk. He's already got his next play mapped out. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Erik Brannstrom Note Just made another crisp, clean one-touch pass. His anticipation is excellent Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Erik Brannstrom Note Nice, long pass through the middle, right on the tape, through traffic. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Erik Brannstrom Note Not afraid to make a hard, cross-ice diagonal pass, and I haven't seen him make a bad pass yet. Great accuracy and weight on his passes. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Erik Brannstrom Note A great play on Puljujarvi as the big Finn was entering the zone: kept excellent gap control, poked the puck off of Puljujarvi's stick, and then got up into the Finn's chest to completely break up the attack Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Erik Brannstrom Note Finally misfired on a pass, but then he sped back to his own end to recover the puck. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Erik Brannstrom Note A terrific pass from behind his own net to a streaking forward at the opposite blueline. In stride, on the tape. Wow! Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Erik Brannstrom Note Not an ounce of lazy in his play. His whole game is quick, amped and constant Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Janne Kuokkanen Note Great dangle to get to the net. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Janne Kuokkanen Summary Smart, determined player who works hard all over the ice. Created two goals in the game by driving into the offensive zone and making smart plays, one by driving the net, the other by swivelling around to find Puljujarvi. Untapped potential, I think, for a top-six, intelligent player. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Jesse Puljujarvi Note Tormenting the penalty killers with possession skills Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Jesse Puljujarvi Note Working the left circle on the powerplay. So poised with the puck, patient, waiting for the right play to open up and then executing with precision. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Jesse Puljujarvi Note When Puljujarvi does not have the puck, he is constantly cruising the zone like a predatory animal, waiting for an opening to make an attack. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Jesse Puljujarvi Note Hard wrister from the top of the circle, rips it without warning. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Jesse Puljujarvi Note Smart, effective play that started in his own end, nice transition pass to Kuokkanen, then hits another gear for a return pass and a partial breakaway, then shows the hands to break down the goalie and snap one five hole. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Jesse Puljujarvi Note Fires a long wrist shot, then follows in and one-times his own rebound off the post. Wow! Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Jesse Puljujarvi Note Icing his hand after every shift Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Jesse Puljujarvi Note Finishes a hat trick with craft and quick hands. Nasty stuff. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Jesse Puljujarvi Summary A complete package of a player, with his constant engagement fo the game, focus, and the ability to execute in all facets of the game. Always reading the play in front of him in all three zones. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Good acceleration from a standstill. Quick feet. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Great power move to split two defenders with speed and stickhandling, then drives the net for a dangerous backhand shot. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Powerplay time on the top unit, setting up behind the net Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Like most of the Finn forwards, he is always in motion, and his edgework is solid when not at full stride Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Note Long legs and solid technique generate a lot of power in his skating, which will only improve over the next 12 months. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Kristian Vesalainen Summary Another big Finnish forward with good speed, edgework, and handskills. Uses his speed effectively to change gears and turn defensemen. Constantly on the move, and his edgework allows for subtle speed and directional adjustments when gliding. Smart and willing to do the hard work in the corners. His passes are accurate and he is a capable puckhandler. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Lias Andersson Note Well-disguised wrist shot beats the Finn goalie far side, low post. Great release on the shot, well-timed to use the defender for a screen and totally fooled the netminder. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Lias Andersson Note Nice transition play, carries the puck into the offensive zone, toe drags around a defender and puts a decent wrist shot on net Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Robin Salo Note Got turned around in his own end, but recovered quickly to regain position. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Tim Wahlgren Note Good job getting his stick in the passing lanes while on the forecheck Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Tim Wahlgren Note Pins his man against the corner boards, and when the puck gets worked free, goes straight to the front of the net. Solid PP work and positioning. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Tim Wahlgren Note Putting in a lot of hard work in front of the net on the powerplay. Smart stick play to help however he can. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Tim Wahlgren Note Short strides, needs to improve his push and extensions in straight-line skating, but that will come. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Tim Wahlgren Summary There is a lot to like in Wahlgren's all-around game, but there may not be a lot of upside potential. Smart, effective, but needs to impove on the solid foundation of his skating. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Finland (U18s 2016) Video (With Replay) 5/4/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Steps up to break up a play at his own blueline, then shows goods composure with the puck waiting for a lane to open Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Puts a lead pass well behind Trenin, who reaches back for it. By the time he turns up ice, he is belted by the Moncton defenseman. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Bad turnover on a cross-ice pass in his own zone. Leads to a good chance for Moncton. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Stuck in deep again, can't catch up on the back check. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Staples big Zack MacEwan to the boards with a solid hip check. Knocks over the much bigger man. Carrier's physicality has been a surprise. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Lead pass to a forward is waist high and can't be controlled. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Carrier not on the ice after a late time out with the goalie pulled. Comes on with about 30 seconds left, and Moncton promptly scores an empty netter. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Good feet that move all the time, Fluid is the word. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Plays a good positional game in his own end, and engages offensively without putting his team at risk. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Summary A two-way defender who needs more experience to hone his skills into a professional-grade player. Jumps into the offensive attack and is effective in the offensive zone, and plays well in his own end. Just needs to polish his game, and a year or two at the AHL level should do just that. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Strips Garland, shows excellent gap control and manages to neutralize Garland's speed in this particular instance Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Carrier doesn't realize PK is ending, misses an opportunity to spring Alex Dostie fresh out of the box. Instead, Carrier fires the puck down the ice for an icing. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Carrier can't connect on a stretch pass, leads to an icing. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Caught in deep on a pinch, then can't catch his man who beats him to the net. Bailed out by his goalie. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Effectively comes out high in the slot to disrupt a cycle. Later on in the shift, dumps the puck in the offensive zone when he could have carried it in. Abramov chases, but can't establish possession. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Carrier draws a penalty with some shifty stickhandling while essentially standing still in the neutral zone. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Is not on the ice for the PP to start the period. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Alexandre Carrier Note Stands up a Moncton player driving to the net. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Austin Kosack Note Good poise in his own end. Holds puck below circles, dodges a defender, passes to an open man for a controlled breakout. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Cameron Askew Note Chips puck in deep when he had the opportunity to carry it over the blue line with possession. No one on Moncton can retrieve it, and Gatineau soon exits the zone cleanly. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Cameron Askew Note Floating at offensive line on the PP while his teammates go retrieve the puck. Does not provide an effective target for a head man pass. Pass is attempted anyway, does not connect, and icing is called against Moncton. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Cody Donaghey Note A heady play on the PK. Faceoff in the offensive zone is won back to Donaghey. Instead of dumping it in, he immediately began skating backwards to his own blueline. Only then does he dump the puck back to the Gatineau zone. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Seems deterred by physicality of the game early on. Backchecking has been lazy the first few shifts. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Goes up and down the bench during a time out trying to pump up his teammates. He's doubled over at the end of the bench afterwards. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note So quick and ellusive with the puck. Very active. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Nonchalant entering the zone and the defender just took the puck away from him Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note In the defensive zone, gave a token reach for a puck. Looked like he was more interested in creating a breakaway than disrupting the opposing attack, and this allowed the puck carrier to step into the slot for a scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Not having a good period, at all. Whiffed on an attempt to shoot a moving puck back into the offensive zone instead of making a better, safer play. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note That was a bit more of what is expected: a hard-working shift with creativity and vision in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Garland is such a masterful pest. Every time I watch him, he has the opponents chopping, slashing, elbowing him all over the ice. He drives his opponents crazy. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Summary Not Garland's best game, even though he did have moments in which he sparkled. At times, the Gatineau frustration hits seemed to get to him a bit, and at other times he seemed energized by them. Ulta-quick with the puck, but in this game he looked more interested in creating chances than in winning the game. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Stripped by Carrier Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Another half-hearted back check. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Takes another hard hit. Later in the same shift, seems to shy away from contact by getting rid of the puck quicker than usual. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Takes an elbow to the back of the head. Gatineau really keying in on him physically. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note His game is built on his speed. He easily created distance between himself and opposing forwards trying to track him down. Certainly not afraid to try to be creative in one-on-two or one-on-three situations, but hasn’t been able to break through tonight. Gatineau's early physical play on him pays off throughout the game. It is slightly concerning that he took a few solid hits. Might not have the escapability that small players need to thrive playing in the NHL. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Constantly calling for the puck. Not much of a distributor of the puck and his instinct seems to be to shoot first. Hard to believe he had 89 assists in the regular season. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Rarely ventures below the hashmarks in his own end, but does a very good job covering his points. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Conor Garland Note Garland is one on three and tries to cut to the middle, but he is not successful. Have to respect his creativity, even though it didn't get him very far on this night. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Kelly Klima Note Freezes and walks defenseman in space high in the slot. Exhibits a solid release, but misses high and wide on this occasion. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Kevin Klima Note Klima with a high-end burst of speed picking the puck up at his own blueline. He fakes cutting to the inside of the ice and then goes wide, completely fooling the defenceman. He is able to freeze Gatineau's goalie on his left post before faking as if he's going to cut behind the net. However, he makes a pass at a seemingly impossible angle across the crease on his backhand before circling behind the net. The pass is one-timed to Wiederer, who shows good patience himself in putting the puck past the sprawled Gatineau tender. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Kevin Klima Note Off a Gatineau faceoff win, Klima bursts past his man to collect the puck before it reaches the Gatineau D. Creates a partial break, but loses his footing. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Manuel Wiederer Note Shows signs of being a responsible defensive winger. Sticks around on the breakout to give his defenseman a good passing option, then alertly chips the puck out past pinching d-man from Gatineau. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Manuel Wiederer Note The beneficiary of Kevin Klima's excellent poise with the puck. However, Wiederer showed good patience himself. Goalie was down and out, but Wiederer still dragged the puck for a second in order to ensure he had the best possible shooting angle. Made no mistake finding the empty net. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Manuel Wiederer Note Gets the first goal of the game into an open net with the Gatineau goalie sprawled on the ice. Nice and calm, waiting for the puck to settle and the angle to open up for a clean shot. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Vincent Milot-Ouellet Note Skating is too upright, so he's not getting power throughout the entire stride. He has to work on that. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Vincent Milot-Ouellet Note First shift I've noticed him in a while, shows nice agility then goes to the box for tripping. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Involved physically after the whistle. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Puck thrown to his side on the PP, where he showed good hustle to retrieve the puck against two Moncton penalty killers. Puck jumped on him for the rest of the PP, though. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Moncton wins the draw back, but Abramov gets to the puck first from right wing. Establishes possession in the offensive zone by outmuscling Conor Garland for the puck. Goal stems from this shift. He gets a secondary assist for his effort. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Can't get the puck out on the wall in the defensive zone. Leads to more zone time for Moncton. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Tried to do a bit too much in traffic in the slot. Passed on a shot to toe drag into more traffic, where he was eventually stripped of the puck. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Not the fastest player on the ice, but a very smooth skating stride. Will improve with added strength. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Creates a chance for himself walking off the right wing wall. Shot is right in the goalie's crest, through. He is tripped as he goes to the net, drawing a penalty. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Good burst of speed creates a 2-on-1 chance for Gatineau. Shot deflected into the netting. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Abramov trying to gain entry to the zone, but Moncton stacks up defenders on the blueline. Instead of dumping it in, he circles back. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note On the powerplay left circle, vision and hands allows him to make a pass back between his legs that could have ultimately earned him a beauty assist if not for a timely save. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Good patience to let the defender slide himself out of position, then pulled his hands in closer to his body to create a better angle on the goaltender, and his snapped wrist shot went off the blocker. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Great puckhandling to get the shot through an obstacle course of sticks, then gets away a nasty wrist shot. Saved. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Summary Abramov plays with a calm simplicity that underlines his on-ice awareness. Not the fastest straight-line skater, but he shows above-average balance and agility and ends up being more quick than fast. Does not look small when he plays, and he seems to get better with every game. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Takes a solid hit from behind in the offensive zone, but absorbs it well and carries on play Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Very impressive pass on the PP. Given a bad pass in his skates, manages to find the puck and pass it to a teammate down low between his legs. Leads to a great scoring chance that wasn't converted. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note Has a wide open shot from the slot, misses wide. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Vitalii Abramov Note An elite two way shift from Abramov. Blocks a shot on a 3-on-2 rush, then is down low helping out his defenseman on both sides of the ice. Causes a turnover down low, which springs Gatineau for a 2-on-2. Somehow with energy left, Abramov makes it a 3-on-2 by using a quick burst, impressive considering the hard work he put in earlier in the shift. Solid net drive on the odd man rush. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Yakov Trenin Note Engaged physically after the whistle Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Yakov Trenin Note I like his on-ice presence Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Yakov Trenin Note Took a big hit as he was pulling a suicide pass from his skates. Goes to the locker room. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Yakov Trenin Summary A big, smart player who patrols the ice like a field marshall, directing the attack and putting in the work to get the job done successfully. Needs to work on his skating, especially straigt ahead, but his mechanics are not at all bad. He will get faster, and his edgework is already above average. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Yakov Trenin Note Gets off a good low shot in the slot. Nice left pad save by the Moncton goaltender. It was nearly by him by the time he was able to kick out the pad. Lost the faceoff to start the shift. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Yakov Trenin Note Trenin slows down at the offensive blueline while carrying the puck, causing Carrier to go in offside. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Yakov Trenin Note Has an odd posture while skating. Not a fluid stride, and his first few steps are quite slow. Can see skating being an issue at the next level. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Yakov Trenin Note With a Gatineau PP, Moncton wins a draw in the neutral zone and the Dman fires the puck high down the zone. Trenin foolishly swings at the puck above his head and makes contact, resulting in a faceoff in Gatineau's end. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Yakov Trenin Note Hit hard in the open ice after receiving a suicide pass from Carrier. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Yakov Trenin Note Good edges, keeps good pace while not using his stride. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Yakov Trenin Note Nice, deft stick lift on the backcheck to break up an attack Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Yakov Trenin Note Responsible on defense, but saw an opportunity and jumped up for a good power-forward chance creation that saw the puck go just inched wide of the post. Brian Fogarty Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 4/8/2016
Yan Pavel Laplante Note Nice toe drag, but the shot is blocked up and into the netting. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Yan Pavel Laplante Note Solid backcheck filling in for Carrier who was once again venturing down low Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Zachary Malatesta Note Fantastic stretch pass from blueline to blueline leads to a partial break Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Zack MacEwan Note Very nice individual effort to create space for a drive to the net. Stopped by the Gatineau goalie. MacEwan is a big body - somehow feels like he's bigger than 6'3", which is what he is listed as. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Zack MacEwan Note Skates with his arms very low and stuck to his side. Arms barely move, which creates a stunted stride. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Zack MacEwan Note Picks up a bad pass in his feet and finds a teammate in a dangerous area. Brent Craswell Moncton vs Gatineau (QMJHL) Live 4/8/2016
Jesse Puljujarvi Summary Scored the double-overtime game winning goal while falling to the ice. I have not been as impressed with him in this series as I was in previous viewings. He is skating fine after the knee injury but not playing much in the high traffic areas. Karpat has put Aho on a separate line and his cerebral play is missed by Puljujarvi. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Tappara (Liiga) Live 4/8/2016
Patrik Laine Summary Laine’s game is elevated in the post season. His defensive game has been adequate and is much more aware of his responsibilities with more on the line. His two goals were sniper shots, one a water bottle knocker short side and the second beating the goalie glove side. Has a great release and generates power in a very small space. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Tappara (Liiga) Live 4/8/2016
Sebastian Aho Summary Tappara was extremely physical against Aho in this game, greatly limiting his effectiveness. His vision and hockey IQ is excellent, but neither matter as much when you are pinned along the boards or being held. A game like this is a good example of what Aho will need to overcome to be successful in North America with a more physical game and smaller ice surface. Zachary DeVine Karpat vs Tappara (Liiga) Live 4/8/2016
Adrian Kempe Summary Adrian Kempe was invisible yet again. He is a young player in the AHL but one of his reputation shouldn’t have one good viewing in five. Ontario is a very good team and he just isn’t able to do much of note. Consistency is an issue. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/6/2016
Emile Poirier Note Poirier just flamingoed on a shot block. I hate that. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/6/2016
Mark Jankowski Note Jankowski with a good inside out move and fires a shot right into Budaj, but nice hands on that play. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/6/2016
Nick Schneider Note Schneider tracks the puck well in traffic overall Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/6/2016
Nick Schneider Note Schneider’s stick handling skills are below average. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/6/2016
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington with a great read to intercept the exit pass and transition back to the offensive zone quickly. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/6/2016
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington keeps body position on the 6’7 Auger and forces him outside. Nice play! Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/6/2016
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington catches up to Kempe, closing an 8 foot gap through the neutral zone. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/6/2016
Adrian Kempe Summary Kempe has concerns around consistency and seeing him live multiple times in the past month has confirmed that. When he is moving his feet and staying in his lane, he impacts a game. When he coasts around, he is not. He coasted a ton and seemed to move only east/west, resulting in a marginal viewing. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Adrian Kempe Note Kempe on the point on the PP1 unit Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Adrian Kempe Note Kempe ineffective tonight, was running around trying to play overly physical and it isn’t his game. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Devin Shore Note Devin Shore with a great pass to a breaking Wotherspoon. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Mark Jankowski Note Jankowski with a solid first shift. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Mark Jankowski Note Good read by Jankowski to center the puck to the streaking winger for a dangerous chance. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Mark Jankowski Note Jankowski lifts the Reign defender's stick, gets the puck on net. Goal ultimately waived off, but... Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Mark Jankowski Summary The first professional game of the widely panned first-round pick. Jankowski played a steady game and knew his positional responsibilities well even in his first game with the Heat. He did not look out of place but was surprised a few times how quickly he ran out of time and space. I don’t think he has high-end talent, but certainly has NHL potential, likely in a middle-six roll. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Nick Schneider Note Schneider a bit overactive in the crease. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Nick Schneider Note Schneider has a big, wive V when in the butterfly. Long legs, good pad work so far Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Nick Schneider Summary Schneider has played well in his time with the Heat and provided some stability in the crease. He has good size and plays the position well. He keeps his shoulders back and has long legs to cover the net well in the butterfly position. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington sees it all on the PP, directing puck movement even when he is on the backside point. Decisions with the puck are instant Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington skating is exceptional. Uses the size he does have smartly. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington activates from the point and just misses with a wicked wrist shot. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Oliver Kylington Note Kylington all over the ice, just dangerous in many situations and has the skating to recover. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Oliver Kylington Summary First time I have seen Kylington since his should injury and was skating very well. Amazing to think he is only 18 years of age and playing impactful minutes at the AHL level. His skating covers a lot of mistakes, but the offensive skill is excellent. Zachary DeVine Ontario vs Stockton (AHL) Live 4/1/2016
Alex Schoenborn Note Doesn’t give much sense of offensive upside Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Alex Schoenborn Note Schoenborn obliterates Laurencell looking for the puck. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Alex Schoenborn Note Schoenborn again loses Ralph and it leads to a goal. I’m not sure what he is bringing to the table in this series. Other viewings have not been of note either. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Brandon Ralph Note Ralph has a good shot. Quick and varied release points Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Brandon Ralph Note Ralph with another goal, just driving the net and slapping in another rebound. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Brycen Martin Note Good read by Martin to intercept the puck and turn a defensive stop to an offensive zone faceoff. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Caleb Jones Note Jones either does too little to far too much. Needs to find some middle ground in his game. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Caleb Jones Note Jones has very good acceleration and balance on his skates Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Caleb Jones Summary Jones’ series could only be viewed as a disappointment. He was largely quiet for long stretches of the game and had trouble carrying the puck against the Everett trap. When he was noticeable, he was trying to do everything by himself and force plays. Liked his game better earlier in the year. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Connor Dewar Note Connor Dewar fights off two Winterhawks and beats Hill with a laser. Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Connor Dewar Note Dewar out on a PK in the last 30 seconds to protect the lead and win the series. Good stuff Zachary DeVine Portland vs Everett (OHL) Stream 3/30/2016
Connor Dewar Summary The 2017 eligible prospect played second line minutes for Everett and his work off the puck was excellent for a 16-year-old. Positionally sound, motor and compete level was suburb bordering on elite. Scored a goal in Game 4 with an impressive shot, one that makes you wonder if he should have shot more in the series/season. Zachary DeVine Portland vs E
