Player Notes

 

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

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

Player Name Note Type Note Writer Game Watched Viewing Method Game Date
Mitch Marner Note Marner getting a bit too cute early. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Mitch Marner Note Crowd gasping at his puck handling at the blue line Brian Fogarty London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Mitch Marner Summary Top-end skating and excellent hands and vision, Marner is a constant threat to create or convert a scoring chance. Needs to add a lot of muscle and strength, as right now he still looks narrow, especially in his legs. Brian Fogarty London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Mitch Marner Note Marner’s pass goes between his legs back to himself and carries the puck around the offensive zone, fearless with the puck on his stick and the skill to back it up. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Mitch Marner Note Marner puts the puck where only Tkachuk can get it. Fantastic pass. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Mitch Marner Note Marner such good hands through the neutral zone for a low percentage shot and takes a shot an Swiss goalie. Zachary DeVine Switzerland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 12/29/2015
Mitch Marner Note Marner has woken up. Zachary DeVine Finland vs. Canada (WJC 2016) Stream 1/2/2016
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
Mitch Marner Note Marner blazes around the perimeter and wrists a shot right into Sandstrom. Again, things that work at the junior level. Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Sweden vs Team Canada Live 8/4/2016
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
Mitch Marner Note Marner's quickness gets a chance on net, and the quick release gets the puck off just in time with a defender closing on him Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team Sweden vs Team Canada Live 8/4/2016
Mitch Marner Note Marner with a great shift late in the 1st, puck handles around the back after give and go with Dvorak of the next for a dangerous chance. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Mitch Marner Note Marner needs to go back. His decisions are just not at the pro level. Defensive game needs work all around Zachary DeVine NJEC 2016 - Team USA vs Team Canada Live 8/5/2016
Mitch Marner Note Marner with a puck recovery on the half boards, lightning release ties the games at 3. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Mitch Marner Summary Marner looks bored. So talented, gets away with anything he wants. His line likely could dominate play at the AHL level, there was very little even a skilled defensive team like Windsor could do to stop them. Zachary DeVine London vs. Windsor (OHL) Video 12/4/2015
Mitch Marner Note Marner and Point are holding the puck and masterfully navigating the offensive zone and not a shot to show for it. Zachary DeVine Canada vs. Denmark (WJC 2016) Stream 12/28/2015
Mitch Marner Note Marner roofs the puck short side. Strome shows great poise with the puck and a perfect pass to Marner. Zachary DeVine Canada vs. Denmark (WJC 2016) Stream 12/28/2015
Mitch Marner Note Marner has a lane to the net and instead dishes off to Berisha. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Mitch Marner Summary Marner the Magical: He made a number of plays that made the home crowd ooh and aah. While the dangles will not translate, the on-ice vision and hands will. Marner's shot is not hard but it is accurate. The issue keeping him from the Leaf’s roster in my mind is the size. He doesn’t look to be 5’11 and 164 pounds might be a stretch as well. A summer of hard, long work is needed in the weight room, focusing heavily on developing lower body power would be a great benefit to the talent. Zachary DeVine London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
Mitch Marner Note Playing the right point on the powerplay Brian Fogarty London vs Kitchner (OHL) Live 3/6/2016
