Hockey Prophets Player Notes
NameNote TypeNoteWriterGame WatchedGame DateDate ViewedGame Number
Shane WrightNoteIn the slot while the puck is low at the net, and he's ducking and peaking around traffic trying to get a clean look at how the play is developing. That's a high level of engagement.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteHard lean for a fast turn at low speed as he sees a potential chance, and when Chromiak gets his the puck, he's in great position right at the crease and he gets an elevated shot away in a flash that beats the goaltender from three or four feet out.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteFast, edgy, aggressive on the forecheck. He uses his speed to gain on players from behind trying to escape. Takes good angles of forecheck attack. He looks determined to get the puck back for his team.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteBackchecking hard, angles the puckcarrier away from the middle and forces him out to the boards.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteSteps into a small open space at the circle, gets a nice feed from Wisdom from behind the net, and slaps a one-touch snap shot that misses wide by maybe an inch or two. He beat the goalie clean.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteHis first steps off of a slow glide are powerful and effective. He covers a lot of ice in an instant with just two or three strides.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteBeginning to feel like doesn't know how to just glide because he is always driving his feet. He's fast everywhere without the puck, always on the move, always getting to the best spot on the ice.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteRocket of a wrist shot with a release so fast that he can make life hard for a goaltender, even when he's out at the top of the circle and the goalie has clear line of sight.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteTries a stretch pass from his own blue line, but it gets picked off. Wright quickly made up for it, however, by hounding the player trying to enter Wright's zone.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteHe keeps his stick active, and has made several good stick checks in the game that have either disrupted opponent attacks or outright created turnovers.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteHis straightline skating is almost picture perfect. Fully extended, skates come up maybe two or three inches off the ice, and fast return.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteFaceoff at the right dot in the offensive zone. Wright gets booted, and lines up on the inside. Puck comes out to the point, and the defender carries the puck down deep into the corner. What does Wright do? Backs out to the point to cover the point for the attacking defender. It would have been so easy to camp out and wait for a chance to come to him from the corner, but Wright made the right choice and the smarter play. Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteShakes Tomasino with a 180 move that left the agile Tomasino going the wrong way.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNotePuck gets tangled at his feet, kicks it to his stick as he's turning away from the defender, keeps his turn until he can pass to Chromiak in the corner.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteHis first steps with the puck are explosive.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteWrists one from above the slot and breaks the goaltender's mask. Goaltender feeling his jaw after that. A wrist shot. From distance. Wow.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteOff the feed from Chromiak, at the circle just inside the dot, goalie squared up and ready, and Wright just blows it past the netminder with a wrist shot over the glove hand. The puck was in the net before the goalie moved his glove.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteDumps the puck carrier with a good, clean hit. What can this kid not do perfectly? And as I wrote that note, he blocked a shot. Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212
Shane WrightNoteWinning faceoffs fairly consistently.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212

Shane WrightSummaryThere is not enough space in a simple summary to describe how good a player Wright is just a month into his 16th year. He plays fast, hard and skillfully. He already has a pro build at 6'0 and 187 pounds, and aside from Tomasino, was easily the best player on the ice. Sure to be the #1 pick of the 2022 draft. He just has all the tools and the work rate, game awareness and pace to be a superstar NHL player.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/25/20201/31/202010212

Shane WrightNoteGets a puck while under pressure, but easily pulls it around and passes off to the wide open teammate. Processes the play so fast.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/24/20221/27/202210254
Shane WrightNoteKilling penalties.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/24/20221/27/202210254

Shane WrightNoteLooks like a player trying to play across all two hundred feet of the ice instead of flashing to the net all of the time.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/24/20221/27/202210254

Shane WrightNoteSimply crushing on faceoffs.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/24/20221/27/202210254
Shane WrightNoteRidiculous! Backwards, between-his-legs, no-look, below-the-net bank shot goal. That was insane.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/24/20221/27/202210254
Shane WrightNoteIt's rare to see him run out of options with the puck. He always seems able to find an open lane, create a space to make a pass. Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/24/20221/27/202210254
Shane WrightNoteWhen he is below the goal line, supporting the puck, he seems to have any alternative outcome mapped and loaded. He can move the puck almost immediately when it comes to him.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/24/20221/27/202210254
Shane WrightNoteOne of my favorite aspects of Wright's game is his constant support of the play. Always there, always supporting the puck at both ends of the ice.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/24/20221/27/202210254
Shane WrightNoteMultiple changes of speed when necessary.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/24/20221/27/202210254
Shane WrightNoteLoves a backhand pass.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/24/20221/27/202210254
Shane WrightSummaryWhat more is there to say about Shane Wright? If he does not go first overall in the 2022 draft, there will be some incredibly unhappy fans in the near future calling for their GMs head.Brian FogartyKingston vs Oshawa (OHL)1/24/20221/27/202210254
