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.

Jiri Kulich Note Took a couple of small crossover steps there, when I think he would have rather seen him dig in and push, but after those first steps he was fast up ice. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Germany (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021
Jiri Kulich Note Back deep in his own end to retrieve a puck, then it's up and out. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Germany (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021
Jiri Kulich Note Long shot on net, not much to it. More like he wanted to get a whistle than anything. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Germany (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021

Jiri Kulich Note He's an amazing skater. Highly agile. Not an explosive first step, but he is at speed in two or three steps. Dynamite on his edges. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Germany (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021
Jiri Kulich Note Winning all the puck races. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Germany (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021

Jiri Kulich Summary His entire game is built from his feet up. Speed, agility, fantastic spatial awareness. Works hard in all zones and looks like he has a high scoring drive. Once his game develops more over the next couple of years, he could be a very good NHL forward. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Germany (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021
Michael Gut Note Picks up a loose puck in his own zone, powers the puck through the neutral zone, makes a clean entry across the blue line, then passes off to the right wing.

Sebastian Malat Summary Too many mistakes, too much playing at his feet instead of head up, eyes out focus. Has the speed and defensive awareness to be a penalty killer, bottom line forward, but in this game he looked like a guy who would struggle to stay at that level. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Germany (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021
Sebastian Malat Note Held the puck too long and turned it over under pressure. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Germany (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021

Fraser Minten Summary Kind of average in the game, nothing bad but nothing special, either. He looks like a player that could break into the NHL as a role player at 21 or 22 if all goes well for him. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Josh Filmon Note Okay on his feet, looks more mobile than fast. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Josh Filmon Note Just not accomplishing much in the game. He gets the puck, he moves the puck, he loses the puck. He's tried a couple of hits that missed. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Josh Filmon Note Gets the puck in the high slot area on the powerplay, skates it towards the point, but into more trouble than clear space, turns it over. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022

Luca Del Bel Belluz Note Lost his feet pretty easily there after a shove from Lindgren. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Luca Del Bel Belluz Summary Disappointing game. He showed a few moments of potential, but those were often washed out by sort of lackluster play. Spent a lot of time watching.

Maveric Lamoureux Note So tall he plays kind of bent over at the waist. Awkward lateral movement. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Maveric Lamoureux Note Good on his feet in general, which is outstanding for someone as tall as he is at his age. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Maveric Lamoureux Note Geekie able to turn the corner on him. Lamoureux just kind of laid his stick out there as a form of defense. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Maveric Lamoureux Note Physical player, but bumps guys a lot more than he lines up huge hits. Still, at his size, the bumps pack some force. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Maveric Lamoureux Summary Hard not to want him to succeed at his size. It will take him a while, but when he puts it all together he could become a nice middle-pair, first pass, stay-at-home defender. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Michael Buchinger Note Chasing the puck behind his own net, getting crossed up a bit in coverage. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022

Nathan Gaucher Note Looks like he's roaming the ice trying to find someone to hit. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022

Nathan Gaucher Note Chases Donovan behind the net on the penalty kill forecheck, starts to lose him, slashes, slashes again, and gets called for the second one. Now a 5-on-3 as he goes to the box. Not smart, beginning to end. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Nathan Gaucher Note Not the best stops and turns. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022

Owen Pickering Note Excellent positioning neutralizes Seminoff at the doorstep. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022

Owen Pickering Note Reads the incoming pass, steps up, reaches out, and deflects the pass away before it can reach it's target. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Owen Pickering Note Effective on the penalty kill with his long reach and quick feet. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Owen Pickering Summary A lot to like in his game. Skates very well, is a good passer, but plays such a smart game in his own end with quality reads and positioning. A lot of upside potential. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Tristan Luneau Note Snaps a quick-release pass from blue line to blue line, right on target. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Tristan Luneau Note Backwards, trying to defend a two-on-one, but he's caught in no man's land and is ineffective. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Tristan Luneau Note Sees the turnover in his own end and immediately jumps up to attack. He's the right side of a 2-on-1, gets the puck and a clean look and hits the crossbar from the right side dot. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Tristan Luneau Summary Luneau showed above average skating and hands, and with his offensive drive, he could become a legit top-four NHL transition defender. Brian Fogarty CHL Top Prospects Game 2022 Video (With Replay) 3/23/2022
Cameron Lund Note Gets the puck left hashmarks, but turns away from the net, then leaves a soft pass easily picked off. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Cameron Lund Note Shoving and wrestling after the whistle, gets called for two for roughing. Frustration entering the game for Green Bay, down 5-0 in the second period. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Cole Spicer Note Nice bounce pass off the boards to spring an attack into the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022

Cutter Gauthier Note Buries Greene with a shoulder to the jaw, and a bit late at that. Five minute major and a game misconduct. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Cutter Gauthier Summary Uses his size well, and has power in his feet, which he also uses to generate physical power on the boards. His hit of Greene was high and late and unnecessary, though. He showed good hockey iq otherwise, made some smart plays on and off the puck. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Frank Nazar Note Strong change of direction, fluid skating up ice. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022

Frank Nazar Note Quick hands to flick the puck around the forechecker to his defenseman. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Frank Nazar Note Beauty short-handed goal. Holds the puck backhand on his left side while curling to the slot to his right, protecting the puck and gaining position inside the defender, draws the puck forehand and flicks it five hole. Smart, fast, handsy. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Frank Nazar Note Goes hard into the endboards after flying at the net in a scoring chance footrace. Draws a tripping penalty and goes slowly to the bench. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Frank Nazar Summary Has the hands to make things happen and a nose for the net. His skating is very good to excellent, and his offensive hockey sense is keen.

Isaac Howard Note Playing left wing on Nazar's line. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Isaac Howard Note Blows past the attempt to stand him up at the blue line, head up at the left-side half boards, then he wires a beautiful pass to the crease to find Leonard for an easy goal. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Isaac Howard Note First step is easy and impressive. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Isaac Howard Note Not a lot of urgency to get back to his own end, not a ton of energy off the puck. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Isaac Howard Note Closing in on a loose puck just inside the offensive zone, head up, looking for options as he gets to the puck. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Isaac Howard Note On the powerplay, takes a puck center ice, tries to split two defenders as he enters the offensive zone despite having two much better options on either side of him. Turns it over. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Isaac Howard Note When he has the puck with time, he is a dangerous playmaker. Otherwise, he is not nearly as effective. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Jayson Shaugabay Note Smaller player at 5'10, moves well, engaged. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Jayson Shaugabay Note Jumps to a loose puck, skates into space at the left circle, pulls up, passes back to the high slot, but a bit in the attacker's feet. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Jimmy Snuggerud Note Turns are okay, but his first step lags a bit. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Jimmy Snuggerud Note Just not very fast. His form is okay, but his feet are slow to move through the entire stride and return. Limits his speed and acceleration. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Jimmy Snuggerud Note No looks a pass from right circle to left to find a wide-open Duke and an easy goal. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Jimmy Snuggerud Note Nice little pass that leads Nazar into a scoring chance. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Jimmy Snuggerud Summary Not the fastest player on the ice, but he made a significant impact at both ends with tenacity and puck movement. He'll bump, he'll grind, and then he'll make a nice read and pass that ends up with the puck in the back of the net. Probably more of a quality middle-six type than top six, but he looks like he has the tools to be an NHLer. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Lane Hutson Note Back looks a little hunched over as he glides, but better when he skates. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022

Lane Hutson Note Sees the ice well, and makes some creative passes with loft and appropriate weighting. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Lane Hutson Summary Transition defender, keeps his head up and seems happiest when the puck is on his stick. Good passer with vision and patience to pick out the right first pass out of his zone when carrying isn't the option. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Logan Cooley Note Great middle man on the tic-tac-toe, takes the pass right circle and one-times a pass to Gauthier far post. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Logan Cooley Note Everywhere in the offensive zone. Green Bay having a hard getting a stick on him, then a creative backwards pass through his legs to the crease that deserved a better conversion. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Ryan Greene Note Takes a great line through the neutral zone, then picks up speed to beat the defender to the corner. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Ryan Greene Note Great job covering Cooley, wins the puck, turns up ice and passes to start the breakout, then gets clobbered by Gauthier. That looked like a headshot and a half-tick late. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Ryan Greene Note Looking like he's playing at 3/4 speed. I wonder if that Gauthier hit has zapped him a bit. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Ryan Greene Note Wrists one top far side from the left circle. Nice shot. Brian Fogarty USNTDP vs Green Bay (USHL) Video (With Replay) 3/27/2022
Brad Lambert Note Gets to the high slot, gets a pass, turns and puts it on net. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Austria (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021

Brad Lambert Note Takes a pass driving the right circle, but the defender is on him, so he goes behind the net, using it to rub off Reinbacher, then passes out to the other side - goal. Good play from Lambert. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Austria (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021
Brad Lambert Note Skating is beautiful and fun to watch. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Austria (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021

Brad Lambert Note His game in a snapshot: he's first to a puck in the corner. Tries to change direction back behind the net, loses the puck, watches the Austrian player skate away. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Austria (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021
Brad Lambert Note Four-on-four, he hits the offensive zone with speed, then tries to take on all four Austrian players instead of looking for anyone else. What was that? Brian Fogarty Finland vs Austria (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021
Brad Lambert Summary Maybe the best skater in the draft class. His movement, acceleration, speed are all elite. He has good hands and shot, but there are too many times when he tries to do too much or doesn't try enough to get it back. So much to like, but still a lot of question marks for me. If he can develop into a player who absorbs the game instead of fighting it, he could be a top-line NHL forward. If not, he'll bounce around more, have some flashes, but never meet expectations. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Austria (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021
David Reinbacher Note Gets to a loose puck first, absorbs the hit to move the puck up the wall. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Austria (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021

Joakim Kemell Summary Kemell is all about the shot. He can play hockey, has the footspeed and vision to be a good forward, but his shot could make him special. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Austria (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021
Johannes Tschuring Note Speed is quality even when he's not full out. Like his stride mechanics. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Austria (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021
Juuso Maenpaa Note 5'7, 148. I know the league is easier now for small players, but that is small. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Austria (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021

Marco Kasper Note So good in possession. Screens the puck from defenders, handles around them, moves it well, uses the boards. Just a high-quality puck possession player. Brian Fogarty Finland vs Austria (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/27/2021

David Jiricek Note Steps up at the red line to pick off a long head-man pass. Carries to the blue line at speed, passes live, then goes hard to the net. Great play. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Canada (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
David Jiricek Note He's an aggressive defender, closing spaces with intent Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Canada (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021

David Jiricek Note Anticipates the opposing players' intentions so well. He's reading minds out there. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Canada (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
David Jiricek Note Holds until the lane appears, then makes a sharp pass to start the transition up ice. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Canada (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
David Jiricek Note And there's the knee injury I knew was coming. Stepping up to hit Guhle, leg-on-leg contact, and Jiricek's knee takes the worst of it. Too bad. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Canada (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
David Jiricek Summary Jiricek is the total NHL defender prospect. Good wheels, ability to move lateral and turn with top opposing forwards. He's strong on the puck and along the walls, and his balance allows him to lean into players to negate their options. He's aggressive to attack the puck when that's an option, but responsible and doesn't give up attacks. Moving up ice, he's patient with the puck and goes hard into the attack. He's going to be an excellent NHL defenseman and likely a cornerstone blueliner. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Canada (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Jiri Kulich Note End of a long shift in the defensive zone, Kulich gets the puck near his bench and tries to play the puck across the redline by going through his legs backward. Turnover leads to a quick counterattack from Gunther, Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Canada (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Jiri Kulich Note Straightline speed looks above average, good form but not a ton of flash. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Canada (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Jiri Kulich Note I like his work rate. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Canada (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021

Jiri Kulich Note Skating is good, especially small-space multidirectional movement, but top speed isn't thrilling. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Canada (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Jiri Kulich Note Does an excellent job in his own end to stick with MacTavish as he has the puck, turns him to the corner and then plasters him into the boards. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Canada (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Jiri Kulich Note I think his speed will improve to probably a 1.0 to 1.5 level. Good to very good. Brian Fogarty Czechia vs Canada (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021

Jonathan Lekkerimaki Note Not working a lot off the puck, but he's finding the puck on his stick. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2021) Video (With Replay) 8/4/2021
Jonathan Lekkerimaki Summary Lekkerimaki is a shoot-first forward who looks like he wants nothing more in life than to put the puck in the net. His wrist shot is dangerous, with a fast release and a lot of heat behind it. Several times his shot bothered the goaltender (who played an excellent game). I don't recall a single shot of Lekkerimaki's that did not result in an awkward rebound as Elias fought them off. He has good vision, but he is not a playmaking forward at this point. Skating is interesting. He has excellent dimensional movement due to his edgework, but he doesn't show exceptional speed or acceleration. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2021) Video (With Replay) 8/4/2021
Juraj Slafkovsky Note Up the right side with the puck, hard stop, head up, fires a long diagonal pass to the left side of the blue line for a solid one-timer chance. Good find. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2021) Video (With Replay) 8/4/2021

Juraj Slafkovsky Note Not a dynamic skater, but he gets around the ice well. He's just a big, strong forward with soft hands and an imposing pro power forward style. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2021) Video (With Replay) 8/4/2021

Juraj Slafkovsky Note Not putting a lot of effort into defense. He's there, and he's active, but I'd like to see him really working instead of monitoring. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2021) Video (With Replay) 8/4/2021
Juraj Slafkovsky Note Draws a penalty in the corner just because Havelid had to grab him to try to keep him from muscling his way out with the puck and into a dangerous scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Slovakia (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2021) Video (With Replay) 8/4/2021
Juraj Slafkovsky Summary In a game where the Slovakian jerseys (red numbers on blue field) made it incredibly difficult to identify players, Slafkovsky was a clear stand out. His size, his style, his dominance on the puck all made it fairly obvious who he was on the ice. This game was nine months old, and Slafkovsky has grown into his game even more in the meantime, but he's a clear power forward NHL talent.

Jordan Dumais Note Tries a sharp cross-crease pass, doesn't get through, then he gets the loose puck and snaps a shot on net. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Video 4/14/2022
Jordan Dumais Note Right side on the powerplay, holds and walks in toward the net until he can draw the defender to him, then passes around him to the low post. Created that chance with patience. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Video 4/14/2022
Jordan Dumais Note His first couple of steps lack strong push, and have more of a high kick to finish. But after those steps he gets into good stride posture and looks better. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Video 4/14/2022
Jordan Dumais Note Lifts a stick to allow the pass to go through, then collects it on the other side. Smart play. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Video 4/14/2022

Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Video 4/14/2022
Jordan Dumais Note Has the puck in deep, sees his team changing, so he turns to the corner boards, absorbs the pin and holds the puck until his team finishes it's line change. Another smart play. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Video 4/14/2022
Jordan Dumais Note Beavertails a lot, calling for the puck, but almost always he is the best option at that time. Brian Fogarty Cape Breton vs Halifax (QMJHL) Live Video 4/14/2022

Calle Odelius Summary Solid player from the back end, who can join the rush and make plays. Needs to polish his game, but the core materials are there for an NHL defender, likely middle pair with upside. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Germany (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2021) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2021

Elias Salomonsson Note On the power play, takes the puck from behind his own net, and with all five back, he leads the breakout carrying the puck into the neutral zone. Then, he passes back straight to Roman Kechter, who skates in and buries the clean shorthanded breakaway goal. Not a smart play from Salomonsson.

Matthias Pischoff Summary The first thing that stood out to me was that remarkable lateral movement and constant activity off the puck. He can be a good penalty killer at any level with that movement and his active stick and willingness to block shots. Offensively, he had two nice goals, showing off a good, quick release. He'll need to get into the middle more, but if he does, he could be a sleeper. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Germany (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2021) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2021

Roman Kechter Note You can tell by his composure, especially with the puck, why he is the Captain. Brian Fogarty Sweden vs Germany (Hlinka-Gretzky Cup 2021) Video (With Replay) 8/2/2021
Roman Kechter Summary Kechter is calm, poised and in control when he is on the ice. Smarter than he is skilled, probably, but he plays an honest game with no glaring weakness, but no standout electrifying skill, either.

Carter Mazur Note He is everywhere, crashing and banging, using his speed to close gaps to the puck carriers. Fun to watch. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Carter Mazur Note Thumping hit, but a half-tick too late for IIHF play, and he's called for interference. Nice physical play, though. Legal in the NHL. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Carter Mazur Note Powerplay sequence he just showeda hard wrist shot, a driving slapper, and good net front presence. Not a highly accurate shot, but hard, hard, hard. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Carter Mazur Summary Speeding, physical best with some skill. Probably not a scoring forward at the NHL level, but certainly has the style of play to get him there in a bottom six capacity. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Dominic James Note Changes gears, drives the net, lots of power in his stride. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021

Filip Mesar Note Second powerplay unit Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Filip Mesar Note Chokes way up on his stick to get a clean one-timer away on a pass that was a bit too far forward. Great adjustment and then better weight transfer. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Filip Mesar Note Knows how to slide through lanes to get to the space he wants. Alters his speed as needed, using his feet to benefit the play. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Filip Mesar Note Big effort on the backcheck. Really battling out there trying to claw the team back into the game. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Filip Mesar Summary Fast, agile, competitive at both ends, and makes good decisions with and without the puck. He's a top-quality player. Would like to see him convert chances a little more, but he looks like a player who will continue to work hard in improve Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Juraj Slafkovsky Note Second powerplay unit Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021

Juraj Slafkovsky Note Soft hands in traffic. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Juraj Slafkovsky Note Accelerates better than you'd expect for someone that big, and it’s disarming for defenders. It's like a mountain leaps at you. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021

Juraj Slafkovsky Note Big wrist shot from the high slot off the draw. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Juraj Slafkovsky Note Extremely difficult to move off the puck. His feet allow him to reposition himself between the puck and the defender, his hands keep the puck out of reach, and his size absorbs physical pressure. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Juraj Slafkovsky Note Sweet no-look pass to Mesar to set up a scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Juraj Slafkovsky Summary There is a reason that Slafkovsky is a top prospect in the draft. He's big, agile, balanced, coordinates his feet and hands into effective play generation, and he has a big shot that he uses well. Future NHLer, no question. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021

Maxim Strbak Note Facing the boards behind his goal, tries a quick backhand pass to the slot, but was too clever by a lot. Why? Sequence that ensues ends with his goaltender fishing the puck out of his net. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Maxim Strbak Note Gets caught up ice, and can't keep up with Berard going the other way. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021

Simon Nemec Note Takes a hard slapshot right into his midsection and crumples to the ice. Took a couple of shifts, but he's back on the ice. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Simon Nemec Note Well done to use the back boards for a bounce pass to get around the forechecker. Nice play. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Simon Nemec Summary The best defender in his draft class, by far. Smart with the puck and without it, keeps his positioning in his own end against even the highly skilled and super fast US forwards, and creates advantages with ease. Moves the puck intelligently, gets up ice into to the rush, even getting in on the forecheck if he's up ice. Great player, future NHL top pair defender. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Tanner Dickinson Note Turns are wide, and he just got burned by a quicker, tighter turn radius of Nemec, who turned inside and gained a step. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021
Tanner Dickinson Note Creates good acceleration with a strong first push. Brian Fogarty Slovakia vs US (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 12/26/2021

David Adaszynski Note Solid hit on the boards on the forecheck. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022
David Adaszynski Summary Plays a tough game with good skating and energy. Did not generate a lot of offense in this game, and held his stick tight in his hands. He made some good passes, but in general put too much on them and was too deliberate in finding them. Will need to soften up his offensive game a good bit over the next year. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022
Easton Armstrong Note Tries a little saucer/chip pass to Bedard, but leads him just a bit too close to the net. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022

Matteo Michels Summary His game was most evident in the defensive end, playing hard down low. In the offensive end, he had a couple of good moments and fought hard in puck battles. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022
Maxim Muranov Note Full power strides chasing an icing. Maybe a bit too much in his shoulders, but got good speed and power through his legs. Good lower-body mechanics. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022

Maxim Muranov Note Tried a few times to power around Svozil, but hasn't been able to turn the corner on him. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022
Maxim Muranov Summary Power forward type, goes strong with the puck to the net, constantly driving the puck up ice. Has a strong wrist shot, but did not seem overly adept at creating the space he needs to get good looks on net. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022

Oliver Tulk Note Not afraid to get bruised up along the boards. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022

Raiden Zacharias Note Looks so small out there, especially since he ducks down a bit as he plays. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022
Raiden Zacharias Note A little uncertain in the defensive zone, but considering this is his third WHL game, it's not too surprising or troubling. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022
Ryker Evans Note Evans is incredibly smooth, both on his feet and with the puck. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022
Sean Tschigerl Note Decent speed, but gliding back to the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022

Sean Tschigerl Note Top powerplay unit. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022
Sean Tschigerl Note Just absent in the defensive zone. He's wandering, drifts out beyond the blue line looking for a release pass, meanwhile his team is outnumbered down low. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022
Sean Tschigerl Summary There are some great aspects to his game, in particular his offensive play off the left side. Good shot, high level of scoring drive, good work with his linemates. However, at the other end, his work rate and interest level dropped considerably. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022
Spencer Tye Note So small, he looks like a fourteen-year-old out there. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022

Tanner Howe Note Excellent pass cross ice out to the far point. Got it through traffic, right on the tape, easy to catch. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022
Tanner Howe Note Another good pass, this one a little two-foot backhand to catch Svozil at full speed up ice. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022
Tanner Howe Summary Interesting player with top offensive instincts and very good hands. He showed nice agility and quickness on his feet, able to change speeds to take advantage of spaces. I was impressed with his defensive-zone play and willingness to block shots, and his patience when he got the puck. This was the third of three straight games for Regina, so I want to watch him more to see him when he is bit fresher. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Calgary (WHL) Video (With Replay) 2/27/2022

Matthew Soto Note Footrace with Buckley, a little better, but Buckley had the puck. Neither are burners. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Paul Ludwinski Note Nice hand-eye to bat a puck down mid-stride and then control it while moving into the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Paul Ludwinski Note Battling and shoving at his own crease. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022

Paul Ludwinski Note Shows nice quickness and intensity to attack the puck. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Paul Ludwinski Note Speedy player. So much to like in his game. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Paul Ludwinski Note Relentless, gets a steal, turns and shoots low far side, but a good kick save keeps the puck out of the net. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Paul Ludwinski Note Moves the puck well, but he needs to work on his shot selection, I think. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Paul Ludwinski Note Solid shoulder check. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Paul Ludwinski Summary Maybe one of the most entertaining players on the ice. He is constantly on the move, all hustle and quickness, and shows a lot of excellent hockey sense. The key lacking part of his game right now is a dangerous shot, but he has the tools to get there. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note Jetting up the left wing, his stride and mechanics are so good. Strong, low, powerful. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note Gets a puck while under pressure, but easily pulls it around and passes off to the wide open teammate. Processes the play so fast. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note Killing penalties. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note Not a hugely physical player, but he'll bump and lean on players. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note Glides out of the corner with the puck, drawing the defender with him out to the halfboards, then a sharp stop and backhand pass to the dot. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note Rips a wrist shot just wide. He gets so much heat on his wrist shot. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note Looks 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 Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note Drives the right dot, then puts a shot pass to the slot that generated an excellent and dangerous chance for his teammate in front. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note Simply crushing on faceoffs. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note Ridiculous! Backwards, between-his-legs, no-look, below-the-net bank shot goal. That was insane. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note It'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 Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note When 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 Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note One 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 Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note Multiple changes of speed when necessary. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Note Loves a backhand pass. Brian Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Shane Wright Summary What 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 Fogarty Kingston vs Oshawa (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/24/2022
Alex Assadourian Note Small, with good skating ability and a lot of energy. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Alex Assadourian Note Highly active player, but he coasted there while an opponent in the slot needed coverage. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Brett Harrison Note Moving up ice expecting the puck to be carried out of the zone, but he wasn't really supporting the play at all. Forechecker stops the progress of the puckcarrier, and Harrison just kept skating despite being maybe ten feet from the puck. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Brett Harrison Note Misses on a four-foot pass and puts the puck into his teammate's skates. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022

Calum Ritchie Note Digs in on his edges to shift a bit to his right and get into a better space in the slot. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Calum Ritchie Note Does well to tie up Degrazia's stick in the slot. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Calum Ritchie Note Gets a partial two-on-one, takes a hard wrist shot on the fly, but the goaltender was able to fight it off. Hard shot that was difficult to handle. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Calum Ritchie Note Good acceleration Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Calum Ritchie Note Patient with the puck when he needs to be in order to draw defenders to him. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Calum Ritchie Note Excellent balance and agility. Smooth on his feet and can absorb contact and retain balance. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Calum Ritchie Note Chokes way up on his stick so he can take in the pass coming directly to him and immediately move the puck out to his left. Deft hands, smart play. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Calum Ritchie Note Playing the bumper on the top powerplay unit, but the Generals are keeping the puck on the perimeter for the most part. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Calum Ritchie Summary Has all of the tools and the work rate to be a top-six NHL forward at the least. His skating and balance may not be elite level, but it is certainly very good and likely to get better. He showed great hockey intelligence, a willingness to get to the dirty areas of the ice, and a high scoring drive. He is a top prospect. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
David Goyette Note Carries in, pulls up, passes down the blue line, intercepted. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022

David Goyette Note Left side of a two-on-one, takes the saucer pass from Stillman and goes short-side wrist shot, goal. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Evan Konyen Note Excellent diagonal pass to the far side to find the driving player, who then wasn't able to convert. Too bad. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Evan Konyen Note Nice lead pass to give a clean offensive zone entry. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Evan Konyen Note He wants the puck. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Kocha Delic Note Uses lots of little crossover steps and chopping half-strides as he moves up ice. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Kocha Delic Note Good neutral zone work to steal a puck and get into the offensive zone. Maybe his best off-the-puck play in the game. The rest of the time he has been wandering a bit and inefficient. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Matthew Buckley Note Pass out to his own blue line too soft and was easily picked off. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Matthew Buckley Note Second-unit powerplay minutes. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Ty Tullio Note His first step is almost as good as his excellent vision and hockey sense. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Ty Tullio Note Second time he's taken a hard hit in order to set up offense, and this one earns him a bruised assist. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Ty Tullio Note Hits a rut and goes to his knees, maintains puck control, and shovels a backhanded pass to his teammate at the point. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Ty Tullio Note Steps into a slap shot from the high slot and crushes the post. Brian Fogarty Oshawa vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 1/9/2022
Danila Yurov Note Big. Absorbs hits well. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Danila Yurov Note Follows Chibrikov in, and when the rebound gets kicked out to the left dot, Yurov is there and one-times it near post and in. Hit the defender's skate, but well-timed and aggressive offensive play. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Danila Yurov Note Extended time when he was matched up against Henry for Switzerland. Yurov was bigger, faster, stronger. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Danila Yurov Note Makes good choices in the offensive zone, safe, short passes to maintain possession and apply continuous pressure on the defenders. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Danila Yurov Note Willing to play right at the crease, cruising the low slot area, digging in and battling at the front of the net. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Danila Yurov Note Accelerates to a loose puck, then backhands across the top of the crease. Should have resulted in a goal. Excellent play from Yurov. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Joel Henry Note Good speed (1.0 to 1.5) with some agility and quickness on display. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Joel Henry Note Nice read to step up and intercept a lazy pass along the offensive-zone blue line. Can't make much of it, though, as the puck rolls off his stick in the high slot. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Joel Henry Note Hard wrist shot from the left circle goes off the crossbar. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Lian Bichsel Note Excellent size. Looks so big on the ice and uses every bit of his frame to lean on and overpower opponents. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Lian Bichsel Note Turns back under forecheck pressure, cuts and turns, can't match the speed of the forechecker so he uses his body to protect the puck until help arrives. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Lian Bichsel Note Lacks straightline speed, but his first couple of steps are very good for the big man and he's agile on his skates. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Lian Bichsel Note After the whistle, give Michkov a chop to the back of the knee that the refs missed. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Lian Bichsel Note Solid hit puts the Russian forward into the bench. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Lian Bichsel Note Whiffs on a one-timer attempt. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Lian Bichsel Note Good example of how he uses his size: with the puck going into the defensive zone corner and his teammate about to the be the first player to it, Bichsel looks back over his shoulder, sees the forechecker closing, then alters his line and pace to set up a moving screen and allow his teammate more time to gather the puck and ready a breakout. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Keeps his feet firm and stable beneath his shoulders on the glide. Balanced and loaded. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Lowers his shoulder, power turn to the net, loses the handle. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Nifty little kick fake to freeze the defender, cuts around, puts a wrist shot on net. Had good speed with the puck through the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Chibrikov wants to attack. Not helping a lot to get the puck out of his zone, but he's ready to launch if it does. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Liking his quickness. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021

Nikita Chibrikov Note Nice hands to collect a bouncing puck and get it quickly on net. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Switzerland (WJC 2022) Video (With Replay) 11/27/2021
Egor Goriunov Note Tall, nimble, quick. Hyperactive feet. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Egor Goriunov Note Carrying the puck, shields and takes a bump from a forechecker, and then turns the contact into a spin pass up ice to keep the puck moving. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Egor Goriunov Note Stationary on defense there. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Egor Goriunov Note Carrying out of his end, sees his lane cut off, so he curls back and resets to his defenseman. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Egor Goriunov Note Chooses not to take a clean shot in favor of a tap pass to the slot where his teammate was well covered. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Egor Goriunov Note Another defensive zone shift where he essentially maintains a spot near the right side hash marks and watches the play around him. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Egor Goriunov Note Linear player. Not a lot of deception in his game. Looks like he'll try to beat you with his length and his determination, but not a lot else. Good hands, good maneuverability though. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Egor Goriunov Summary An interesting player, mostly because of his length and agility. Showed good hands at times, and protected the puck well, but there simply wasn’t much creativity to his game. Got knocked off the puck a few times, but showed good balance. His play in the defensive zone was clearly lacking and disappointing. I kept wanting to see him try to drive play, but he never did in this game. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Ethan Gauthier Note Down low near the top of the crease, slams home a nice feed from the low right circle. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Ethan Gauthier Note Constantly in the danger area, not afraid to mix it up at the net or on the boards. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Ethan Gauthier Note Tries to guide a wrist shot top corner, but misses high. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Ethan Gauthier Summary Always around the slot, goes hard to the net and is willing to camp out there. Good hands down low, and could make a living by banging home rebounds and backdoor passes. Would like to see more of his shooting from range before making a determination on his shooting ability. Good skater, nothing exceptional, but again, plays down low so much that his skating isn’t really an issue either way. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Hugo Primeau Note Strong on his edges, gives him power in turns and good balance on faceoffs. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Hugo Primeau Note Pushes hard laterally to accelerate away from the net and into some open space at the hash marks. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Hugo Primeau Note Doesn't need a lot of effort to keep pace with the transition. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Hugo Primeau Note Drives the right side, wrist shot top left, but the goalie gets just enough of it. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Hugo Primeau Note Good feeder pass to the slot. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Hugo Primeau Summary Doesn’t play like a 5’8 Center. Strong on his skates, digs in on his edges to drive strength and balance. Good skater but doesn’t stand out as a speedster. Showed some offensive creative on a couple of plays, but generally did not accomplish much in the game. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Joey Vetrano Note Keeps trying to chop the puck away while in his own zone, but he's a half-second too late each time, and the puck is moved before he can engage. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Joey Vetrano Note Killing penalties, playing on the powerplay, getting all-situation minutes. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021

Joey Vetrano Note Like his stride and speed. Very good o the move. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021

Joshua Roy Note Moves the puck well, but sometimes he just passes into an opponent's stick. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Joshua Roy Note Definitely glides a lot more than he skates. Has good speed, though. Just moves with a near nonchalance that looks both capable and disinterested, but he's active. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Joshua Roy Note Turns away from a slash and gains position, walks into space at the high slot, wrist shot saved. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021

Joshua Roy Note The half slap one timer from the right dot looks like his most dangerous shot Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Joshua Roy Note Two on one, he was off the puck and did well to measure his pace and keep himself in a good spot relationally to the puck carrier. Give and go, his pass popped up and his teammate batted it into the net. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Joshua Roy Note Virtually no physicality in his game. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Joshua Roy Summary The high points of his game are his patient vision and passing ability. He'll hold the puck until the good option appears, then move the puck accordingly. Unfortunately, if the option doesn't appear, he tends to force a play and often turned the puck over because of it. Did not show much of a shot other than the one-time snap shot which is a weapon. Lackluster in his own end. He will need to amp up his physical play and be willing to get his jersey dirty as he moves up levels. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Justin Larose Note Centering the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021

Justin Larose Summary Played a hard game, constantly engaged, and looked mostly like a player who has been in the league for a while rather than a 16yo rookie. Took on bigger players in the defensive zone and held his own. Interesting player to keep an eye on for development, especially in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Raphael Blouin Note Keeps his stick down and active on defense. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021

Zachary Lessard Note Good crisp pass to the far blue line. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Zachary Lessard Summary I liked him as a young defenseman who is obviously still adjusting to the pace in the Q. Plays a quick game, with a good jump in acceleration and lateral movement which allows him to be the first player to the loose pucks, and then his quick hands get the puck up and out of his zone in a hurry. Quality passing on the breakout. Positionally good, got pushed around a bit but fought to regain inside position and used his feet to recover when necessary. Had he been born a week or so later he would be a 2023 draft eligible. Brian Fogarty Sherbrooke vs Victoriaville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 11/21/2021
Calem Mangone Note He lives in the slot. Brian Fogarty Saginaw vs Windsor (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2021

Nicholas De Angelis Note Loose puck in the slot in the defensive zone, tries to pull it in and go up ice, but a Saginaw player pokes it first, and De Angelis is horribly out of position. No damage, but that could have been costly. Brian Fogarty Saginaw vs Windsor (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2021
Nicholas De Angelis Note Takes a great angle through his zone to cut off the attacking lane of the far side winger. Well played. Did that without sacrificing his weakside coverage. Brian Fogarty Saginaw vs Windsor (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2021

Pavel Mintyukov Note Positioned well in his zone, intercepts, passes off, joins the rush.

Beauty of a goal. Brian Fogarty Saginaw vs Windsor (OHL) Video (With Replay) 11/26/2021

Josh Pillar Note Wrist shot, low glove, saved easily. Shot was from near the top of the circle. He's going to need to throw some fire on that if he wants to beat the nettie from there. Brian Fogarty Kamloops vs Victoria (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/6/2021
Josh Pillar Note Spinning pass out to the center point of the powerplay. Makes the pass, but it took a long time and the penalty killer gets out to pressure center point, takeaway. Sort of clumsily played by Pillar. Brian Fogarty Kamloops vs Victoria (WHL) Video (With Replay) 11/6/2021

Bryce McConnell-Barker Summary On a typically fast and skilled Greyhounds team, McConnell-Barker playing on the second line, was consistently involved in the play when he was on the ice. He has very good acceleration and pushes pace whenever possible, either on the forecheck or in off-the-puck transition through the neutral zone. He drew attention on every shift, and offensively showed good ice awareness and passing ability, A play-driving, 6'1 Center with speed and work rate is a commodity that NHL teams look for.

Dalyn Wakely Note Great pass out of the offensive zone left corner to the top of the circle. Cleared the sticks of heavy traffic, set up a shot. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Ethan Montroy Note Reverse check with his shoulder, but he left the puck sitting there. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Justin Cloutier Note Crunching hit against the Battalion forward who had pulled up at the red line. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Justin Cloutier Note Quick, physical, high-energy player. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Justin Cloutier Note Hustles, but could improve on his line efficiency and positioning that would allow less effort and better results. Then he could focus that hustle more. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Kirill Kudryavtsev Note Looks like he's working really hard to achieve fairly normal acceleration, Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Kirill Kudryavtsev Note Goes to his knees to try to block off a lane from the North Bay forward attacking along the goal line. Not sure why he chose that method, but okay. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Kirill Kudryavtsev Note Good gap control against the oncoming foe, holds his position, then closes and pokes the puck away without sacrificing positioning. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Liam Arnsby Note Good backchecking angle to gain position on the puck carrier and force him to turn the puck back toward the blue line and its turned over. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Liam Arnsby Note Not the hardest pass, but the vision was outstanding. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Liam Arnsby Note Looks like he's having a hard time identifying his defensive responsibility on his shift. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Liam Arnsby Note Puckwatching in his own end, gets caught in no man's land and the guy he should have been covering takes a pass from behind the net and buries it. He was by the dot but Arnsby was still at the goal line. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Liam Arnsby Note Battalion has possession in the offensive zone, and he goes off for a change, slow and looking disinterested in getting back to the bench. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Liam Arnsby Note Wearing a "C" but I haven't seen much in this game that shows me he leads by example. At least not in the defensive zone or through his body language. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Liam Arnsby Note Commentary announcer just said "Arnsby had been very quiet tonight," so maybe just a bad game for him? Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Liam Arnsby Note Spinning backhand pass to his left, not spectacular but good. Follows the shooters attempt to the crease and bangs home rebound. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Liam Arnsby Note Diligent in keeping his stick on the ice. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Liam Arnsby Note Sweeps a loose puck on net. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Liam Arnsby Note Puts a leg out and trips the puck carrier. Dangerous play. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Liam Arnsby Summary Arnsby was hit and miss in the game. At times, he looked like a quality offensive center. At others, he looked like his heart just was not in the game. I'm going to give him a pass and revisit him in a month or so. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Owen Outwater Note Long, coltish legs. Looks like he just had those things attached and he hasn't quite incorporated them fully yet. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Ty Nelson Note Skating looks excellent with dexterity and high-level ability to change direction. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Ty Nelson Note Rifles a diagonal pass red line to blue line, through congestion, spot on the tape. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Ty Nelson Note Drifted away into his own corner, expecting his defensive partner to send the puck over, but a Soo player took it away. Nelson should have been tighter to his net there, I think. Instead, the Soo player has full possession unmarked behind the North Bay net. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Ty Nelson Note Big hit levels Savard at the red line. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Ty Nelson Note Smaller defender. He'll need to really become a position-savvy player. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Ty Nelson Note Good wrist shot from the halfboards, but hit a body in front. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Ty Nelson Note Gets hung out to dry on a two-on-one against, and he just flops down on the ice too early to make a difference, and the Soo get an excellent scoring chance, Yuck, Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Ty Nelson Note Uses his speed to get up into the rush. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Ty Nelson Note Drives the puck up the left boards, curls to the net just before the goal line, then shovels the puck at the goaltender's feet. The short rebound out front goes to Petrov, goal. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Ty Nelson Summary The Battalion's top offensive defenseman. He stands just 5'10, but weighs nearly 200 pounds and moves that weight around the ice with ease. He may be a work in progress, trying to build up better game intelligence in the defensive zone, but he plays with an edge, transitions the puck extremely well, and wants to get in on the attack. Sixteen games into the season, he is nearly a point-per-game player and has more than double the points than the second-highest-scoring defender on the roster. Brian Fogarty North Bay vs Sault Ste Marie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Beau Akey Note Skates extremely well, fast in a couple of steps, slides up and back, four-way mobility is swift and smooth. Good command of his body. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Beau Akey Note Another example of his poise and mobility: steps up to a loose puck, snags it and reverses, then turns away from the forechecker and makes a perfect bank pass off the end boards behind his goal, hitting his defensive partner perfectly. Calm, wise, efficient. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Beau Akey Note Sets and shoots, hard wrist shot blocked. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Beau Akey Note Akey is a gem. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Beau Akey Note Carries through traffic. He's slippery, and enters the zone in possession. Nice play. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Beau Akey Note Long wrist shot on net. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Beau Akey Summary Did not start the game with Akey on my list of players to focus on, but by mid-game he was forcing me to watch him. He does everything well, and looks like a truly promising prospect. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Beau Jelsma Note Above average speed, but at the front of the net he was getting moved around fairly easily by the defenseman. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Beau Jelsma Note Jumps on a loose puck, steps into the slot, whiffs on the shot attempt. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Beau Jelsma Note Poor balance and skate strength Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Beau Jelsma Note Cuts left to the high slot, wrists it wide short side, but the shot was humming. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Beau Jelsma Summary He had moments when he looked great, and moments when he looked average. Good mobility, but lacks strength when it comes to battling against defenders for position. He got knocked off his feet several times in the game. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Brandt Clarke Note Clarke is easily the best player on the ice in this game. So assured, a constant presence, always dangerous. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Chris Grisolia Note Maybe average speed, keeps both hands on his stick, swings his shoulders, getting no help from his arms at all. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Chris Grisolia Note Beaver tails, gets the puck, one-timer from the left hash marks, saved. The puck came to his front foot but he still got a lot on that shot. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Chris Grisolia Note Good angle on the backcheck, takes a line to cut off of the forward driving the middle lane. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
David Goyette Note Picks up speed with the puck, drives into traffic, then pulls up looking for better options. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
David Goyette Note Strong pushes generate acceleration, but his turns are wide and slower. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
David Goyette Note Anticipates the play, cuts through the slot and makes the interception. Good read. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
David Goyette Note Goes to the net, gets a pass, tic-tac-toe, goal. He moved that puck quickly to the scoring option. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
David Goyette Note Decisive with the puck. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
David Goyette Note Active stick pokes the puck off the attacker's blade just inside the defensive blue line. Then Goyette pushes hard through the neutral zone to create a three-on-one, slows at the top of the circle keeping the goaltender honest, then fires a deceptive pass far post, but Derbidge can't convert. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
David Goyette Note Trailer on a three-man attack. Puck on his left, passed to him, and he flips a quick pass to Stillman on his right for a goal into a wide-open net. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
David Goyette Summary Goyette has excellent hockey sense and in a game in which his team looked lackluster, he kept making plays and eventually carried his team into at least some kind of contest. He showed the kind of awareness that allowed him to make fast reads and passes to set up teammates for easy scoring chances. He's a clever player with a bright future. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Evan Konyen Note Good speed, nice form. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Evan Konyen Note Want to see more hustle from him (and his entire team, for that matter). Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Evan Konyen Note Drives the puck into the zone, splits two defenders with nice handling, then a setup backhand pass for the assist. Best Wolves play by far in the first twelve minutes of the game. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Evan Konyen Note Another nice pass, this one a half-spin backhand to move the puck around the defender to a more open linemate. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Evan Konyen Note At the crease, but had he taken a step to his left he would have been a screen. Instead, the goalie sees the shot the whole way, and makes a save directing the puck out to safety. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Evan Konyen Note In the defensive zone, he's getting out to the point to pressure pucks. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Evan Konyen Note Takes a bad pass into his feet and kicks it onto his stick, then one-times it far post, low, but the goaltender got his toe on it. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Evan Konyen Summary If not for Konyen and Goyette, the Wolves would have fared much worse than even the lopsided score represents. Konyen played hard all game, making plays at both ends of the ice, trying to generate. He was creative with the puck and diligent without it. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Hunter Haight Note Smooth crossovers to generate some diagonal movement, then a pivot to straight ahead that looked a little bit awkward, but not problematic. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Hunter Haight Note Powerplay, left side, shows soft hands in corralling a puck coming off the end boards, then turning it out to the center point in one fluid movement. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Hunter Haight Note Nice, sharp one-time pass through a lane to the far-side circle. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Hunter Haight Note Backchecking, he calls out a coverage for his defender who doesn't listen, leaving Haight to cover two men in front. Haight tries to cover both, and gets a partial tip as he pokes at the puck, but not enough to prevent the goal. He tried hard, there, but his defenseman left him hanging. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Hunter Haight Note Smooth on his skates, adjusts speed as needed, good turns and agility. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Hunter Haight Note Decent hit on the forecheck. Nothing huge, just finishing it as he should have. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Hunter Haight Note Hard pass into his feet, but he digs it out cleanly. Well done. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Hunter Haight Note Stops on a dime. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Hunter Haight Note Attentive on defense, doing little things to make a difference: covering low, stick in lanes, backchecking efficiently. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Hunter Haight Summary A solid two-way player with scoring drive, some physical play when called for, very good skating, and keen awareness. He looks like a future captain, and is deserving of his first-round prospect status. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Nick DeGrazia Note Lazy turnover at his defensive halfboards. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Nick DeGrazia Note On the powerplay, trying to get out of his zone, has a covered man on his left and about 50 feet of open ice in front of him. Decides to pass left and the puck is easily intercepted. Why? Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Nick DeGrazia Note Weak shot on net. Down by three in the third period. Put something behind that, man. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Ryan Del Monte Note Dangles, dishes, gets the assist. Not the best defensive play in front of him, but that was a good pass well delivered. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Ryan Del Monte Note Wrist shot from the hash marks goes over the net Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Ryan Del Monte Note Good deflection down, goal. He was in position, facing the shooter, good hand-eye tip. Brian Fogarty Barrie vs Sudbury (OHL) Video (With Replay) 10/28/2021
Brayden Yager Note Swift, smooth acceleration. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Brayden Yager Note Trailer on a three-on-one, gets the pass and he buries it top shelf. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Brayden Yager Note Another chance from the slot, this one saved, but barely. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Brayden Yager Note In on the left side of a two-on-one. Alarie sets him up, and Yager blasts a huge one-timer for his second goal of the game. Likes how he opened his hips to the chance and kept his pace laterally as the puck came to him. Great shot. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Carson Lambos Note So refined in his play. Smart, uses all of his tools as he needs them, equally capable at both ends. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Carson Lambos Note Perfect 80-foot pass to lead Geekie into the offensive zone at full stride. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Conor Geekie Note Plasters his man into the boards, separates him from the puck, and Winnipeg takes control. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Conor Geekie Note Loose puck at the goal mouth. Geekie tries to clear it away, but Baco was stronger on the puck and pushes it into the net. Geekie needed to bear down on that. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Conor Geekie Note Hard wrist shot through traffic, but just wide short side. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Conor Geekie Note What Geekie lacks in speed he makes up for with strength and power. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Conor Geekie Note Geekie hasn't had a lot of room in the game, but he's working hard, pushing play. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Conor Geekie Note Nice snap shot from wide at the left circle, saved but dangerous. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Denton Mateychuk Note Tries crossovers steps going backwards, but Savoie takes advantage and beats him easily as Mateychuk tries to turn. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Denton Mateychuk Note Very good closing speed, can snap the gap to the puck closed in a flash. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Denton Mateychuk Note Pushes the puck up ice whenever he has the chance. He looks like he'd rather carry through the offensive zone than make the leadout pass. And for good reason. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Denton Mateychuk Note Partial two-one-one against, and he's the last man back. Stick check to the player on his left, the pivots and takes the man on the right, and breaks up the play. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Denton Mateychuk Note Looks like he's playing every other shift, plus getting full time on the special teams units. Will be interesting to monitor his energy level as the game progresses. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Denton Mateychuk Note Gets in front of shots, and has gone limping off a couple of times. But he keeps blocking them. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Denton Mateychuk Note He's top quality skating the puck through the neutral zone. Carries until he creates a better option, then has the awareness and passing to find it, then continues to power into the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Denton Mateychuk Note Consistently makes threatening zone entries with the puck. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Denton Mateychuk Note Five minutes left, and his legs are starting to look a bit wobbly. He has probably played upwards of 30 minutes in this high-tempo game. Yet there he is, on the rush, ripping a one-timer on net. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Denton Mateychuk Summary Mateychuk is the prototype transition defender who can carry the puck with speed and maneuverability through the neutral zone. He can lead or join the rush, shows a high scoring drive, and more often than not, ends his shifts in the offensive zone. However, he is also sound positionally in his own end, and despite his push up ice, I don't recall seeing him not getting back into position when the puck went the other way. Speedy, balanced, agile. He's a quality defender. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Evan Friesen Note Loping back through the neutral zone as Moose Jaw attacks the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Evan Friesen Note Wrestling for territory in front of the opponent's net. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Evan Friesen Note Tries a riskier, long pass up the boards instead of the shorter, lower-risk pass to the center dot. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Jagger Firkus Note Attempts to clear up the boards, but the puck died at the blue line. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Jagger Firkus Note Has good power in his stride. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Jagger Firkus Note Getting a lot of touches. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Jagger Firkus Note Nice chance to see him go full out up ice. His mechanics are sound and he builds up a lot of speed. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Jagger Firkus Note He's been everywhere in this game. High work rate player with speed and tenacity up and down the ice. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Matthew Savoie Note Pokes a loose puck up ice then beats both defenders to it deep in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Matthew Savoie Note Using one hand on the stick while fending off the defenseman with this other arm, yet he is still able to use his wrist strength and make a nice, one-handed pass in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Matthew Savoie Note Excellent passer. Hands are soft, his passes on the tape and easy to receive. Lovely stuff. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Matthew Savoie Note Plays like he is fully confident that he is the best player on the ice. Composed, quiet game with the puck. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Matthew Savoie Note Smooth one-time slapshot hits traffic, but the fundamentals were strong. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Matthew Savoie Note His ability to pass off the puckhandle makes his shot more deceptive as he closes on goal. No one can cheat shot when he has the puck on his stick. His vision and hands are so good that he just freezes everyone in place. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Matthew Savoie Note Hands are so lively and agile. Bouncing puck in front had no chance when it landed within Savoie's reach. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Matthew Savoie Note Hustling through the neutral zone, a chip pass bounces to him, and he chokes way up on his stick to get better control. He brings the puck down and enters the offensive zone at full speed and with full puck possession. What a play. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Matthew Savoie Note Puck bounces off the end boards. Savoie closes to the goal line and one-times the bounce down the goal line and into the net. Wow! Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Matthew Savoie Summary Excellent player. His passing and vision are near elite level. Skates exceptionally well, and alters pace as necessary to keep defenders guessing. As mentioned, his ability to pass instantly during puckhandling, equally adept forehand or backhand, freezes defenders and goalies and forces them to try to protect against both pass and shot, meaning they are often caught between choices and have a hard time defending either. High iq player in total control of the his game. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Michael Milne Note Slick and agile, kicks a puck to his stick while skating backwards and makes a clean ten-foot pass. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Michael Milne Note Acceleration is very upright, with a lot of swing in his shoulders. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Michael Milne Note Leave the zone early and gets rewarded with a great head-man pass, allowing him to get a partial breakaway. Big shoulder save deflects his wrist shot up over the bar. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Michael Milne Note He almost stands completely upright when he accelerates. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Michael Milne Note Turns are very good, but he tends to trail his outside foot a lot. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Michael Milne Note Wins the puck in the corner, carries behind the net, then hits Orzeck at the right dot for the tying goal. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Michael Milne Summary Milne has a good skill set and works hard on every shift. He shows good hockey sense and above average speed, but his acceleration mechanics need work. Edges are quite good and his agility is very good. He went undrafted last year, but that will not happen again. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021
Nathan Pilling Note Good size, a sturdy frame, and he'll take a hit to make the play. Brian Fogarty Winnipeg vs Moose Jaw (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/23/2021

Cruz Lucius Note Gathers a long pass at the blue line, drives to the top of the left circle, fakes shot, pulls the puck around the defender to get inside, then a back pass to McGroarty for a beauty chance, blocked. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Cruz Lucius Note Skating on a diagonal through the neutral zone, pass comes but he misses it, and it's through to the end boards for an icing. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Cruz Lucius Note Showing off his agility with an excellent spin move off the puck to gain advantageous offensive zone positioning. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Cruz Lucius Note At the bumper spot on the powerplay, gets a backhanded chance at a rebound from a Cooley slapshot, and he puts it away. Good, hardnosed, heavy traffic play. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Cruz Lucius Summary Plays a steady game but he still has some rough edges that need polishing. His skating is okay generally, though he is lacking speed when he pushes up ice. Showed very good hands and good on-ice awareness. I like that he will go hard to the net with and without the puck. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Emil Jarventie Note Smart one-touch pass launches a three-on-one attack Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Emil Jarventie Note I'd like to see Jarventie and Cooley go head to head on a puck chase. Both are fast and elusive. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Emil Jarventie Note Opened up for the incoming pass, takes it, finds Larson on the far post, but the US netminder saves. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Frank Nazar Note Beavertailing going up the ice, but there was simply no passing lane to him. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Frank Nazar Note Bad choice to backhand a pass off the defensive zone halfboards, and he puts it right on the tape of the forechecking Muskegon player. The goalie bailed him out, though. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Frank Nazar Note Enters the zone on the powerplay, goes to the net, puts a fairly soft backhand on target that the goalie smothers. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Frank Nazar Note Odd man chance, tries to saucer the puck to the cutter, but hits a defender. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Frank Nazar Note Enters the zone again, tries to saucer one to the opposite side, hits a defender. Rinse. Repeat. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Frank Nazar Note Nazar can skate, but his choices with the puck are confusing. There he created a two-on-one, but held too long and when he did pass it off, he hit the back foot of the winger. Granted, the winger should have pulled up, but that could have been managed better. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Frank Nazar Summary Lots of speed and some good scoring ability, but his puck management in this game was questionable at best. He made too many unforced errors, but if he can clear that up he has a nice skillset. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Isaac Howard Note Uses quick crossover steps to accelerate backwards. Good mechanics going forward, too. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Isaac Howard Note Closes on the puck carrier, then harasses him with sticklift attempts. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Isaac Howard Note Tries to chip a puck off the boards to go around a forechecker, but the puck doesn't make it through, and he overskated the play, giving Muskegon a turnover and a odd-numbered chance. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Isaac Howard Note He shows some physicality. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Jake Richard Note Carrying up the left boards, bobbles the puck a bit, but muscles through all the way deep into the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Jake Richard Note Gets called for interference as Mehlenbacher was skating the puck into the offensive zone. His penalty killed a decent attack. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Logan Cooley Note Puck comes out of the corner, and Cooley collects it near the left dot and puts it hard on net. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Logan Cooley Note Compact turns and good push as he comes out of it. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Logan Cooley Note Swipes the puck from a defender, turns, steps in on goal, and beats the netminder five hole. Great individual effort. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Logan Cooley Note He's fast. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Logan Cooley Note One shift: comes on the ice as Muskegon is working through the neutral zone. Cooley goes hard back to cover on defense, then as the US defender gains possession, Cooley goes hard up ice, hits the blue line first and tracks down the chipped-in puck. Carries the puck behind the net, around to the right halfboards, passes to the left circle then continues out around the top. Curls back to the left point, then to the center point where he takes a pass, splits two opponents at the top of the left circle, backhands to McGroarty in the slot. Goal. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Logan Cooley Note Receives the pass with soft hands, puck on his hip, loaded for shot or pass. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Logan Cooley Note I'd like to see Jarventie and Cooley go head to head on a puck chase. Both are fast and elusive. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Logan Cooley Note Uses his burst to close on a loose puck in the high slot of his defensive zone. He beat the Muskegon player to the puck and moves it to safety to the wing. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Logan Cooley Summary Probably the best player in the game, with speed, a wide variety of effective shot selection that he used well and excellent vision. He was constantly on the move, as typified by the shift description in the notes (which was not an abnormal type of shift for Cooley). He is a leader on the ice, if for no other reason than the puck finds him all the time. All of the play goes through him. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Owen Mehlenbacher Note Beats the defenseman to the loose puck, but overskates and the US start a breakout. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Owen Mehlenbacher Note Long strides gets him places faster than it looks like he will. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Owen Mehlenbacher Note Average speed, stiff play in general. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Ryan Chesley Note Hard hit on the boards. Didn't get full contact, but definitely got enough. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Ryan Chesley Note A bit out of position after a line change, but he digs in, stays with the play, and eventually gets between the puck and his goal and breaks up the play. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021

Ryan Chesley Note Bobbles the puck at the blue line on the powerplay and gives up a breakaway. He worked hard to try to get back and was able to add some back pressure. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Seamus Casey Note Effortless edgework skater. He has light footwork and accelerates laterally and straight ahead quickly and with ease. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Seamus Casey Note Has the puck at the left point, and a penalty killer dives out to try to poke the puck away from him, but Casey holds and patiently waits, then passes off. Calm. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021

Tyler Dunbar Note Gets a loose puck, goes to the slot, makes a lateral move and wrists one past the goaltender. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Tyler Dunbar Note Better with his edges and maneuverability than he is at straight ahead skating. In a straight line, he takes short strides and lifts his feet too high. Brian Fogarty USNTDP U18s vs Muskegon (USHL) Video (With Replay) 10/9/2021
Deagan McMillan Note Lazy backhand pass straight to an opposing player. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Henrik Rybinski Note He's the kind of skater who accelerates like he's just taking a step or two and suddenly he's ahead of everyone on the ice. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Henrik Rybinski Note Tries to poke a puck from a board battle. I'd rather see him engage there instead. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021

Henrik Rybinski Note Reaching instead of defending. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Henrik Rybinski Summary The experienced, quality offensive play is his strength. He makes smart passes in the offensive zone, moving the puck to the advantaged player. Off the puck, his danger level decreases as he tends to make more stick plays than engaged defensive play. Little physical game, at all. Skating is smooth, with good agility and acceleration. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Jake Sloan Note Spent an entire shift just coasting around, watching the play. He looks completely disinterested. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Jake Sloan Summary Almost no notes taken on his play because I was generally dissatisfied with his lack of intensity or drive. He floated on almost every shift, gliding around in space at both ends, waiting for something, but I'm not sure exactly what. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Jordan Gustafson Note Playing the right side on the top powerplay unit. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Jordan Gustafson Note Curls in at the right dot, tries a wrist shot but whiffs completely. So strange. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Jordan Gustafson Note Doesn't bring his feet back all the way, so he has a very wide-footed stride. It cuts down his straight-line speed considerably. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Jordan Gustafson Note Nice diagonal pass in the offensive zone. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021

Jordan Gustafson Note One-timer for his second goal of the game. This one was hard and clean. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Jordan Gustafson Summary He was hit and miss in the game, showing very skating ability and some offensive flair. However, he made plenty of mistakes, too. Given a couple of years, he should improve to be a viable NHL prospect, but there's work to be done. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Kevin Korchinski Note He can really move, fast up ice, leans heavy into his edges on the turn, power backwards. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Kevin Korchinski Note Carries the puck into the offensive zone up the left boards, pulls up with the puck and shakes the defender completely to gain space. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Kevin Korchinski Note Tons of composure in his game. He plays with control and tempo at both ends. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021

Kevin Korchinski Note Follows the rush, goes to the front of the net, banging away for a rebound, but Boyko smothers. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Kevin Korchinski Note Haven't seen him make a bad pass all game. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Kevin Korchinski Note Excellent long bounce pass off the side boards, right on target. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Kevin Korchinski Summary Korchinski looked like an excellent blue-line prospect. He has the size at 6'2, 185 in his draft year, with excellent skating and high hockey iq. His poise on and off the puck is truly remarkable. His passing is superb and consistently well-selected. His positioning may have been off a couple of times, but he often corrected quickly, and his active stick and long reach helped to compensate. Several times he simply swept the puck off of the attacker's stick. Just an excellent two-way player. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Lukas Dragicevic Note Long wrist shot from the left point flutters to the net. Didn't get much behind that shot. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021

Lukas Dragicevic Note Good and patient passer, looks comfortable with the puck on his stick. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Lukas Dragicevic Summary Has a ways to go in his development, but he looks like an offensive defenseman with the full toolkit of quickness, playmaking ability and solid play in his own end, as well. One to watch to check in on his overall game awareness and cleaning up his game at both ends. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Rhett Melnyk Note Good speed, mechanics look good, but he'll get better as he gains leg strength. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021
Rhett Melnyk Note In a race against Korchinski, but the big defender had the speed and the better angle. Brian Fogarty Seattle vs Tri-City (WHL) Video (With Replay) 10/22/2021

Andrei Kuzmenko Note Tries a long diagonal pass through the neutral zone but leads his man too far, and he looks at the sky in apparent self-admonition. As the play is blown dead for icing, he waves an apology to his linemate. Brian Fogarty SKA St Petersburg vs Jokerity Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Andrei Kuzmenko Note Smooth on his pivots. Brian Fogarty SKA St Petersburg vs Jokerity Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021

Andrei Kuzmenko Note A couple more nice, short passes that set up scoring chances. If the play is there, he finds it. Brian Fogarty SKA St Petersburg vs Jokerity Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Andrei Kuzmenko Note Likes to bang his stick on the ice to try to distract the opposing puck carrier. Brian Fogarty SKA St Petersburg vs Jokerity Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Andrei Kuzmenko Note Goes back to help out on defense. Solid positional play in his own end. This guy is a pro all around. Brian Fogarty SKA St Petersburg vs Jokerity Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Andrei Kuzmenko Note Goes hard down the goal line, driving the net, and as he closes, goes backhand to shield the puck, but instead of going back forehand for a shooting angle, he slips a pass to the far side of the slot for a one-timer goal. Excellent play to both protect the puck on his attack, drawing all the attention, then finding the open man. Brian Fogarty SKA St Petersburg vs Jokerity Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Andrei Kuzmenko Note Straightline speed is okay, but his edges, strength on his skates and maneuverability provides him a lot of opportunity. Coupled with his awareness, he never looks out of position or lacking footspeed. Brian Fogarty SKA St Petersburg vs Jokerity Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Andrei Kuzmenko Note His ability to make plays in small areas and in heavy traffic bodes well for playing on the smaller North American ice if he ever comes over. Brian Fogarty SKA St Petersburg vs Jokerity Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Andrei Kuzmenko Note Big slapper that the goalie stopped, but he checking behind himself. Brian Fogarty SKA St Petersburg vs Jokerity Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Andrei Kuzmenko Note Tie game, 1:20 left in the third, he takes a pass just inside the offensive zone, toe drags around the defender, lowers his shoulder, drives, then beats the goaltender roof from in tight. Beauty goal that breaks the late tie. Brian Fogarty SKA St Petersburg vs Jokerity Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Andrei Kuzmenko Summary His game is so well refined at this point. He plays all three zones with fire, makes smart, little plays. Shows exceedingly good edgework and has a strong, solid base. Variety of shots, vision and game awareness. He could be an effective player on North American ice and could easily be a two-way middle six forward with scoring upside. Brian Fogarty SKA St Petersburg vs Jokerity Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021

Kirill Marchenko Note Deceptive behind-the-back pass that he hid from the goaltender, puck out the point for a one-time slapshot that beats the goaltender low. Nice setup and assist for Marchenko. Brian Fogarty SKA St Petersburg vs Jokerity Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Kirill Marchenko Summary Always impressive with his work ethic and willingness to battle and claw for everything. I like him more every time I watch him. He's still not a getting a ton of minutes, but he is playing on the powerplay and contributing something on every shift. Brian Fogarty SKA St Petersburg vs Jokerity Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021

Elliot Desnoyers Summary So effective all over the ice. Play awareness is so good, he makes an impact on each shift regardless of game situation because he's moving his feet, putting himself in the right spot on the ice, and constantly trying to drive play toward the opponents net. His offensive game is developing nicely. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Jordan Dumais Note Great little flick pass into space leads Desnoyers to a breakaway. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021

Good awareness of the game flow on that play. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Jordan Dumais Note Fast, able to carry into the offensive zone, takes his man wide, then slides a centering pass to L'Heureux who gets hauled down to prevent the dangerous chance. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Jordan Dumais Note Quick feet, quick hands. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Jordan Dumais Note Wow. Puck behind the net, Desnoyers kicks it out to the side of the crease, where Dumais was closing in. All alone (both defenders were below the net), he stops the puck, rolls his wrists to get the blade behind the puck, then roofs it from right at the edge of the crease. What a beautiful goal.

Jordan Dumais Note Another great show of hands as he takes a pass from Desnoyers, passes back to his left through the defender's triangle, and hits L'Heureux's stick perfectly for the tap in. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Jordan Dumais Note Stick in the lane breaks up a pass at one end, then hustles up ice, takes a pass and throws a nasty dangle that gets him to the front of the net. High skill player. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Jordan Dumais Note Give and go, Desnoyers to Dumais to Desnoyers, goal. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Jordan Dumais Summary Highly skilled player getting a lot of minutes on the top line, and for good reason. His hands are so fast, and his read of the play so good, that the puck continues to find him, and when it does, he makes the opposition pay. He plays with speed, but it's his hockey sense that puts him where he should be. Not appearing on any of the main 2022 draft lists yet, but he will. I can see him as a first-round pick at this point. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Jordan Tourigny Note Shows excellent speed to chase down Desnoyers' breakaway. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021

Lorenzo Canonica Note Well done to cover back to the point as the defender pinches in. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Lorenzo Canonica Note His pass is a bit behind the winger going up ice, and the attack stalls out. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Lorenzo Canonica Note Killing penalties, intercepts a pass, carries all the way to the net, but James saves the attempt. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021

Markus Vidicek Note Backhand pass down through the slot to the winger going to the net. Beauty of a pass. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Markus Vidicek Note Seems to be a player that reacts to the play instead of creating it. He waits for someone to get him the puck, then he tries to make something happen. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Markus Vidicek Note Put in a big effort to try to get back to stop a two-on-one, but despite going full out, he couldn't close the gap. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Mathieu Cataford Note Comes off the bench and goes hard into the far corner to pressure the puck on the forecheck. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Mathieu Cataford Note Does everything with urgency. Not rushing the play, but his work rate is high level and he's not holding anything back as he plays. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Mathieu Cataford Note With the puck, ducks behind his defender for a quick screen, then passes up the boards to clear the zone. Took a big hit for his efforts, too. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Mathieu Cataford Note His play in his own end to make good, safe breakout passes is remarkably consistent. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Oliver Nadeau Note Opening shift, gets crossfooted by the puckcarrier's cutback, but just after, he's up, takes a pass and shows very good speed through the neutral zone with the puck. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Oliver Nadeau Note Parked at the back door on the powerplay, looking for the tip-in goal. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Oliver Nadeau Note Makes a pretty pass on the middle part of a tic-tac-toe powerplay sequence. He drew the keeper to his side threatening shot, then zipped the pass cross-crease giving Bourgault a wide-open net to shoot into. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Senna Peeters Note Intercepts inside the blue line and when the defender trips himself up, Peeters has time, walks in, and beats the goalie over his shoulder. Great shot, horrible defending. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Xavier Bourgault Note Paws a puck out of the air then makes a 50-foot diagonal pass to the far dot. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Xavier Bourgault Note Another good look, this one finds Nadeau at the crease, but a sliding right pad save from James gets the puck out of danger and into the corner. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Xavier Bourgault Note Battling along the wall, strong on his skates and on the puck. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Xavier Bourgault Note Yet another look on the powerplay, this one cross-ice to Bourque to Nadeau and into the net. Excellent powerplay shift for Bourgault. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Xavier Bourgault Note Sees the ice so well. Makes smart little passes, strong long passes, and is always getting the puck to the more dangerous player. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Xavier Bourgault Note Lofts a perfectly weighted chip pass over two defenders and drops it right in front of the head man. Speechless. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Xavier Bourgault Note Very good speed, good agility, excellent balance and stability. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Xavier Bourgault Note That was the third or fourth time that he's shot the puck from the slot, and each time he has tried to go low, mostly for the five hole. None were successful. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Xavier Bourgault Summary Looks like a complete package NHL player. Plays a super-smart game, and his passing is not only accurate and easily handled, but he makes the right passes at the right times to set up his linemates for aggressive attacks. He skates well, and shows good speed, but it is his strength on his feet and in his hands that allows him to play the type of game that he does. He looks like an NHLer, and maybe only his shot needs work. That said, he looks like middle-six is his floor, and he has top-line NHL potential. Brian Fogarty Shawinigan vs Halifax (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/15/2021
Braeden MacPhee Note Accelerates up the boards after the puck, gets brought down and draws a holding penalty. His burst put the defender in trouble. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Kieffer Lyons Note Acceleration looks a little leaky. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Kieffer Lyons Note Dumps the puck and tires to rush past MacKinnon but can't get separation from the defenseman. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Logan Crosby Note Hard edge stop and pivot, well balanced, able to get exactly where he wanted despite the snap change of direction to get to the tipped pass. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021

Lucas Canning Note Spends a lot of time bent over at the waist. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Markus Vidicek Note Spending a lot of time in his own zone floating towards the play, but not getting involved in any meaningful way. Sort of turning from one dot to the other. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Markus Vidicek Note Centering the top PP unit, showing good puckhandling in tight spaces. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Markus Vidicek Note Speed is average, nothing dynamic about his straightline skating. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Markus Vidicek Note Tries a one-timer but whiffs on it. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Markus Vidicek Note Not liking his lack of defensive intensity. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Markus Vidicek Note On the left side the powerplay, but slowly gliding out toward the puck at the point. Even if the point man passed to him, Vidicek is limiting his next option if he gets the puck. Get active, man! Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Markus Vidicek Note Good, hard, one-touch pass through the high slot. He has good hands, for sure. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Markus Vidicek Note Looks better with the puck on his stick than any other time. Otherwise he is playing so slowly. Early season malaise? Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021

Markus Vidicek Note Good defensive positioning on the play, maybe the first time I've seen in this game where he looked decisive in his zone. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Markus Vidicek Summary There were glimpses of what he can be when he had the puck: tight puckhandling, confidence with the puck, hard release. However, he spent a lot of this game doing mostly nothing at all. It is possible that there was something going on with him (illness, lack of game shape, bad mood) so more viewings are warranted to see if this was a bad game or a general mode of play. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Mathieu Cataford Note Good speed, even when not pushing hard. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021

Mathieu Cataford Note Whynot finds him with a beautiful pass, and Cataford is in alone. Tries to wrist one from 15 feet, but the goalie makes the save. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Mathieu Cataford Note Works to the net, incoming shot hits someone in front, and he is able to get his stick on it and pitchforks a backhand five hole for the go-ahead goal with six minutes left. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Mathieu Cataford Summary Plays with a spark. He has quickness that he uses to his advantage both with the puck and on the forecheck. Made good choices and showed a willingness to draw pressure to make a play. Has a scorers intentions and goes to the danger areas to make plays. Brian Fogarty Halifax vs Cape Breton (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021

Alexis Brisson Note Trailing the backcheck, when he should have tried to close on the player heading to the slot. When at last he tried, he was too late and allowed a top-of-the-crease chance. Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Alexis Brisson Note Nice hip check. Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021

Antonin Verreault Note Again showing the awareness to adjust speed to find the open ice, this time making himself available for the pass and scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Antonin Verreault Note Verreault's agility is excellent. Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021

Antonin Verreault Note Excellent feed to the slot. His passing vision is top notch. Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Colby Huggan Note Bad choice trying to block Hanelt's progress in the corner, and when Hanelt cuts back, Huggan checks the empty boards. Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Colby Huggan Note Tries to feed a cutter to the net, but the chance never materializes and the puck goes into the corner. Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021

Haakon Hanelt Note Second powerplay unit Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Haakon Hanelt Note I like how he uses his body positioning, in this case spinning off the crosscheck and dropping his back foot to gain inside position at the net. Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Haakon Hanelt Note Drives hard to the slot, but the pass comes way out in front of his lead foot, and he can't get his stick on it. Too bad. Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Haakon Hanelt Note Choses to turn away from the loose puck and tries to get a jump out of the zone, but his teammate doesn't get to the loose puck either, and there's no clean breakout pass. Get possession first! Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Haakon Hanelt Note Plays strong on and off the puck in the dirty areas. Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Haakon Hanelt Note Has a big motor, and he skates well, meaning he's always getting to the spots, always putting himself in a place to make a play. Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Haakon Hanelt Note Takes a hard crosscheck to the mouth. Ouch. Goes off for medical attention. Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021

Manix Landry Note A gorgeous play to take the puck from the rightwing halfboards, attack the slot and draw defenders, then makes a no-look, behind-the-back pass to his wide open teammate for a clean look at goal. Great assist. Brian Fogarty Gatineau vs Blaineville-Boisbriand (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/2/2021
Miguel Tourigny Note Showing off his speed as he carries the puck through the neutral zone, then gets tripped by a diving defender, and still manages to sweep the puck to the top of the crease for an easy tap-in goal.

Brody Lamb Note Loses an edge and spills in his own zone. Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 9/24/2021
Brody Lamb Summary This was a game early in the season, and the entire affair was sloppy and disjointed, and Lamb's play was no exception. I think at best it was a good opportunity to see some of his skating mechanics, which looked good to very good. There was so little smooth puck play in the game, so not much to note about his puck handling, etc. Brian Fogarty Green Bay vs Des Moines (USHL) Video (With Replay) 9/24/2021

Cole Sillinger Note Dangerous again on the penalty kill, with a partial break and a hard wrist shot just wide. Pearson was struggling to keep up, but couldn't. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Cole Sillinger Note Sillinger's speed is a weapon. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Cross Hanas Note Looks so solid on the ice, and plays like it, too. Not fast, probably about average speed or just a bit better. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Cross Hanas Note Will go straight to the top of the crease, with or without the puck. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021

Cross Hanas Note Fighting for a loose puck at the goal mouth, pokes it in. Tough, greasy goal.

Jake Gaudet Note Killing penalties. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Jake Gaudet Note His straight line mechanics look awkward. His push is short, his return is short, and his arms are all over the place. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Veleno seems to like it down low on the right side and ripping shots on net from about the goal line. He scored there in an earlier game, and hit the post this time. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Not watching him in this game, but he just made such a perfectly weighted pass through traffic that I had to make a note of it. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Luke Toporowski Note Slow to get back, his man goes to the net, and Toporowski is not there in time to prevent the scoring chance. Goal against. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Martin Rysavy Note Playing a mostly passive game at both ends. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Martin Rysavy Note Good example of the passivity: puck on the offensive boards between two Detroit players about five feet apart. Rysavy tries to skate past and snag the puck instead of digging in and trying to win possession. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Martin Rysavy Note Again just reaching out for the puck instead of engaging, and this time Veleno just goes right past time. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Martin Rysavy Note Looks willing to put his shoulder in if he has no chance at a puck. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Navrin Mutter Note Fakes a defending forward, throws a wrist shot at the net blocked. Not much action on that shot. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Navrin Mutter Note Hard cross check at the front of the net. Mutter is nasty tough to play against. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Navrin Mutter Note Monster shoulder check on the back boards. He still knows how to throw crushing hits. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Navrin Mutter Note There's something about him that is so intriguing to me. Size, decent skating, decent hockey sense, and physicality that intimidates opponents. He just doesn't score, otherwise he would be an excellent pro prospect. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Navrin Mutter Note Mutter: guess what? Yep. A big hit along the boards. Then another one. Then he circles to the slot and gets a good chance, saved. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Navrin Mutter Note Drives, turns at a glide with the puck in front of him, eyes up, passes through the defender's triangle and sets up a beautiful chance. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Stanislav Svozil Note Not focusing on him here, but he keeps making smart, high-quality plays. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Stanislav Svozil Note I have Svozil too low on my current Top Defenders prospect ranking. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Good chance to see him skate full out as he tries to beat out an icing. Excellent form, impressive speed. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Nice look to the slot to Sillinger in space, but the pass was a bit off target and Sillinger couldn't bring it in. Too bad. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Driving the right side, drops to Sillinger, circles in front of the net, then recognizes that the left defenseman had pinched in low, so Chinakhov hurries back to the blue line to cover. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Plays patiently, engaged but not overly aggressive, especially without the puck. It's like you can see him thinking, making the calculations, winding the spring. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Rocket one-timer from the right circle, hits traffic and bounces so high straight up that all the players at the net stopped to wait for it to come back down. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Subtle play to adjust his skating line and just basically create a running screen all through the defensive zone, allowing his D a chance to start the breakout. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Rocket one-timer from the top of the right circle (sound familiar?) that beats the netminder clean. What an excellent one-timer he has from there. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Time running out at the end of the second period, he has the puck on the wall just inside the blue line, and he wires a wrist shot that the goaltender had to fight off with his blocker. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note His wrist shot is hard and deceptive, and he can get it away from odd body positions. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Driving the neutral zone, passes to Sillinger on his left across to the blue line, takes an angle into space in front of Sillinger. When Sillinger passes to him, Chinakhov--with his back to the puck--lets the puck slide through his skates until it is in front of his left foot, then he one-times a snap shot on goal. Made me gasp. The play-by-play announcer didn't even know how to describe the play. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Puck at the blue line, Chinakhov in the high slot with his back to the net, facing the puck. Takes the pass, circles out to just inside the blue line, goes to the very high slot area, then blasts a 45-foot wrist shot over the goalie's shoulder. Wow! Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Note Goodness. Another one-time slapper from the top of the right circle. Excellent weight transfer. Blows it past the goaltender who was set up and ready but never even flinched. Hat trick. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Yegor Chinakhov Summary A smart player with excellent on-ice awareness and an upper-echelon shot. Skates well, and his balance is particularly evident in his ability to get his shot away no matter what his body position is. He's not a dynamic, game-breaking hockey player, and as such, I'm not sure that he'll become a top-line NHLer, but I'd be surprised if he wasn't a good second-line scoring winger. He passes well and sees the ice so well, and he is a creative offensive player without being a puck hog or neglecting his responsibilities. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Columbus (2021 Traverse City Pros Video (With Replay) 9/19/2021
Jonatan Berggren Note Berggren is so smart with the puck. He sees everything and knows exactly what he wants to do. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Looks big and strong, just a solid NHL-type build. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Powerful stride without a lot of wasted movement. Speed is good. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Hard wrist shot from the top of the circle, low far side, but the goalie fights it off with the pad. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Does well to cover the crease with the netminder trapped below the goal line. Veleno saved a goal, there. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Tries to split two defenders but can't get through and he loses the puck into the corner. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Gets a nice feed from Berggren and wrists it short side low, beats the goalie at the post. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Note Muscles his way through a check in the corner and leads a breakout. That's the kind of possession play that will earn Veleno his paychecks. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Joseph Veleno Summary Doesn't look that different from what I've seen from him before. Strong possession forward, good offensive tools, nothing spectacular but a workman-like player who has an NHL future. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Strong first push gives him good acceleration from a stop. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Cheating up towards the blue line with the puck in his zone. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note But… when the Wings get a turnover and break out, he's up ice fast on a 3-on-2 and buries a wrist shot short side top shelf. He held to puck long enough to freeze the goaltender, then roofed it over his shoulder. Nice shot. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Snappy pass off the boards to hit a cutter who feeds Pearson for the goal. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Excellent read as he gets a short pass from Berggren then one-touches a pass to the wing to the player with no one near him and a clear scoring chance. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Uses body position so well to protect the puck. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Sort of half-hearted bump into the puck holder on the boards. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Slides laterally well with his stick active, eliminating lanes in the defensive zone. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Just tenacious out there, always engaged and active. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Note Gets the puck, turns his man to the net, goal. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Kirill Tyutyayev Summary Probably the most effective player in the game, regardless of the goals he scored. Every shift he had the puck and made something happen. Has the speed, offensive mindset, good play going back. Does not look like he is as small as he is listed. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Note Second powerplay unit. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Note Takes a nice diagonal route to the net, stick ready, but the pass for the corner doesn't get through to him. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Note Playing in the middle of the powerplay. He holds his top hand in high and tight against his chest to keep his stick blade flat on the ice but in close to his feet. Looks so awkward. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Note Certainly not afraid to get to the slot area. Moves fast. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Note Choppy acceleration that is good but can be improved. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Note Speeds up the right wing boards, but can't turn the corner against McIsaac, who just plays him off the puck. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Logan Stankoven Summary Worked hard, but nothing seemed to break for him. I liked that he seemed fearless and willing to go to the high-traffic areas to make plays. Needs to work on some issues with his feed and hands, but if he does, he could have a good professional future. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Pasquale Zito Note Takes a bad angle to the defender and allows a clean transition with speed. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Pasquale Zito Note Speed looks average. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Pasquale Zito Note Not very effective so far, looks off by a step or two and mostly floating at both ends. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Pasquale Zito Note Tries a wraparound, but the goaltender was ready for it and makes an easy save. Too slow in developing. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Riley Tufte Note Looks good on the move, but his first step is listless. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Riley Tufte Note Better glider than skater. Just gets so little push and takes a long time to reset, but he can make up for some of that with his long reach. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Riley Tufte Note Trails the attack by a good bit because he just isn't getting up the ice fast enough. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Riley Tufte Note Has big drive, and as mentioned is good on the glide once he gets up to speed. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Riley Tufte Note Gets a ton of leverage on his snap shot so he generates a lot of power behind it. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Riley Tufte Note Comes out onto the ice after a change, straight into the offensive zone and a lucky puck lands right in his wheelhouse for a heavy one-time snap shot goal. Bang! Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Thomas Harley Note Harley is so smooth with the puck in transition. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Wyatt Johnston Note Top powerplay unit for this squad, playing at the bumper spot. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Wyatt Johnston Note Puck in his zone skips to his feet and he tries to just chop it blind out of the zone, but hits traffic at the blue line and stays in. He had time to make a more controlled play but didn't use it. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Wyatt Johnston Note Can't handle a pass and it skips away to a Red Wings player. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Yevgeni Oksentyuk Note Ill-advised behind the back pass that went straight to the Red Wing defender because Johnston had turned the other way and never saw the pass coming. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Yevgeni Oksentyuk Note Gets a one-time opening, but his shot goes center net, and the sprawling goaltender is able to make a save. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Yevgeni Oksentyuk Note Getting powerplay time in the middle. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Yevgeni Oksentyuk Note So lucky not get destroyed there. Took a suicide pass by turning fully around. Eeeek. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Yevgeni Oksentyuk Note Pitchforks a backhand pass to Kawaguchi, but puts into his skates. Brian Fogarty Detroit vs Dallas (2021 Traverse City Prospe Video (With Replay) 9/17/2021
Adam Sykora Note Races past Miroshnichenko up the left wing boards, drives into the offensive zone, soft pass to the middle that sets up a shot. Excellent wheels Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Adam Sykora Note Second-unit powerplay, working low at the crease. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Adam Sykora Note Using his feet to get a step ahead of the defending player, then passes off to the better option. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Adam Sykora Summary Sykora's game is all about using his skating ability to create opportunities. He showed decent vision and game awareness, and a strong drive to push up ice into the offensive zone. He worked diligently at both ends of the ice, but he wasn't as effective as I'd like him to be. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note Gets his stick into the lane to break up a pass. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note Top powerplay unit, taking up residence in the slot. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note Gets a shot away while falling. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note Good hard pass to launch an attack, then hustles to follow the play to the net. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note If the puck reaches him in the slot, its immediately on net. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note Uses his long reach to hold the puck at length and sweep around the Russian forechecker in the neutral zone. Confident with the puck. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Note Excellent work to get back and break up what could have been a quality Michkov chance. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Dalibor Dvorsky Summary Skating is above average, with good balance in tough traffic. Showed nice hands and the ability to carry the puck through the neutral zone, but he's not a puck handler. Choices were sound, puck movement quality, but his weapon is his ability to generate shots on net from within fifteen feet of the net. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Demidov Note Turning a bit in on defense, looking uncertain. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Demidov Note Head up, puts a sneaky backhand pass from below the goal line out to the side of the crease, goal. Great look. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Demidov Note Playing low on the second-unit powerplay, moves the puck with intention and snap. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Note Shows good balance as a hit spins him but he keeps his feet and is right back at it. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Note Good positioning to the left of a goal-mouth scramble. When the puck pops out, Kvochko finds him and Miroshnichenko buries it into the open net. A little lucky, perhaps, but he was ready and in the right place. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Note Gets another chance from the right of the crease, but the pass is in his feet and he couldn't get the shot away. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Note Sends a pass a bit behind the target. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Note Wearing the "C" for the Russians Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Note Another goal from about the same place. He's a menace from that spot, and his teammates know he's going to be there and be ready. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Ivan Miroshnichenko Summary Plays a quiet type of game, staying low and steady at both ends of the ice, using his positioning to create and defend attacks. His main role in the offensive attack was to set up at the side of the slot and funnel shots on net, and he was good at that. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Juraj Slafkovsky Note Continues to be effective in getting the puck up ice and on net. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Juraj Slafkovsky Note Drives the puck up the right, slides it over, goal. He made that play with effort, speed, determination. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Partial break at the end of a shift, but just takes a long-distance wrist shot that the goalie handles. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Top penalty kill unit Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Tries a long saucer pass from the corner out to the opposite side blue line, but intercepted. Not the greatest choice there. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Plays the right half-boards on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Michkov just gets his shot away whenever he wants. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Gave up a shot to try a pass, but it was tipped away from danger. Thought he should have just ripped it from there instead. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Note Not to be deterred, Michkov heads back up ice, draws three defenders, then makes a fantastic pass to the side of the net, through traffic, for an easy tap-in goal. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Matvei Michkov Summary Even in a game where he was drawing a ton of attention from the defenders and wasn't his most effective, he still managed to have a big impact on the game. He's not the most dynamic skater, but he is strong on his skates, and a puck possession monster. He sees the ice, knows what he wants to do, and it's difficult for the defense to prevent him from doing it. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Peter Repcik Note Bad giveaway from the top of the circle allows the Russians to launch a counter attack. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Peter Repcik Note Like his stride mechanics, but his turns are a bit wide. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Semyon Sinyatkin Note Big burst of speed on the penalty kill draws a penalty to prevent him from a clean breakaway. Brian Fogarty Russia vs Slovakia (2021 Hnlinka-Gretzky Cup Video (With Replay) 8/7/2021
Brayden Boehm Note Goes back to the bench hard. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Carlen Dezainde Note Hustles out to harass the point man. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Carlen Dezainde Note Not a lot of knee bend, so he's not pushing through with long extensions. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Carson Latimer Note Gets caught water skiing. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Cayden Glover Note His first step looks average from a stop, but his third/fourth step acceleration was good there chasing down a loose puck. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Jalen Luypen Note Short, choppy strides, but he has a change of gears when necessary Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Jalen Luypen Note Carries up the left side, muscles past a check in the neutral zone, dips in, wrap around, goal. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Jalen Luypen Note Takes a bump up high, but his balance is strong through his legs and he shrugs it off. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Jalen Luypen Note Killing penalty, wide sweeping stick, decent lateral movement to clog lanes. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Jalen Luypen Note Shovels a pass to the crease for a good chance. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Jalen Luypen Note Steps inside of the defender to get position for a stretch pass, and he creates a partial breakaway. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Jalen Luypen Note Always working to drive offense and get pucks into scoring positions. Hard worker, big scoring drive. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Logan Dowhaniuk Note Penalty kill time. Puts a hip check into the puck carrier just inside the blue line and puts an end to that attack. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Logan Dowhaniuk Note Not doing much to give an outlet to his defensive partner who was behind their net and under pressure. Dowhaniuk needs to create an option there, but he was watching. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Oasiz Wiesblatt Note Bad pass in skates at speed, but he's able to pirouette, stabilize the puck then flick a backhand pass to keep the rush moving. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Oasiz Wiesblatt Note Super responsible on defense. Gets back fast, covers for his D if they pinch in. In that sequence, he tied up the opponent at the front of the net and completely neutralized him. Well played. Brian Fogarty Edmonton vs Medicine Hat (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/25/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Just coasting and floating around up top in his own zone while the entire play was happening at his net. No defensive input at all there. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Strength on his edges allows him to be highly maneuverable laterally Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Tries a no-look backhand pass to the slot, but finds nothing. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Driving the neutral zone, takes a pass on the center ice dot, hits the offensive zone with one defender between him and the goalie, then passes no look to his left, to literally no one at all. I watched the sequence five times and still have no idea what he was thinking there. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Again, tries to pass without looking his teammate, and missed him by probably ten feet for an easy recovery by the opposing penalty killers who then clear the zone. What is up with him? Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Tries to drag the puck around the defender, but leaves it there. Bad turnover. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Ayrton Martino Note Still not engaging in defensive play, but a puckhandling Tri-City forward got too close and Martino stripped him. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Hunter Strand Note Good speed, nice skating technique Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Hunter Strand Note When he goes full out, he has head way out in front of his skates, back almost parallel to the ice. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Hunter Strand Note Nothing too special about his skating. Average or a little better speed, average or a little better agility. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Hunter Strand Note Being heavily relied on to do everything in this game, and the reason is obvious. He's solid in all aspects, probably the best all-around utility forward on the team. But, there's not much spark there. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Kieran Cebrian Note Not getting much ice time, but when he does, he's involved, skating well, getting to the net and into the scrums. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Matthew Knies Note Straight ahead speed is lacking, maybe average. Lots of upper body movement side-to-side, feet moving fast, but he's not driving forward. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Matthew Knies Note Strong stick, good position, creates a turnover. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Matthew Knies Note He's a better skater with the puck than without, because when he has the puck, he keeps his stick out in front while straight-line skating, and is more balanced with less wasted movement. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Matthew Knies Note Snappy release on the wrist shot at speed. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Matthew Knies Note Plays big when he has the puck. Hard to move and knock off his line. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Vinnie Borgesi Note Smooth crossovers, excellent acceleration, eager to join the rush. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Vinnie Borgesi Note Good, hard slapshot from the blue line. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Vinnie Borgesi Note Powerplay sequence, wrists one from 60 feet and hits the post. This kid has a hard shot. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Vinnie Borgesi Note Again using excellent crossovers to gain lateral acceleration. He's a good skater. I'm really starting to like this kid as a player. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Vinnie Borgesi Note Applying pressure to prevent a breakout, using his quickness to close a gap and force the Omaha player to abandon the attempt and turn back. Brian Fogarty Omaha vs Tri-City (USHL) Video (With Replay) 4/23/2021
Dylan Duke Note High work-rate player. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Dylan Duke Note Rifles a pass right to left, but it was too much for Behrens to handle. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Dylan Duke Note Keeps his stick on the ice, attentive and ready. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Dylan Duke Note Trips the Czech goalie, gets buried into the boards. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Dylan Duke Summary Did a lot of little things well in the game, gaining inside position at the crease, making himself available for passes, working into open spaces, and working hard on the defensive side of the game. He's not an offensive force by any means, but he plays a solid, honest game in all three zones. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jakub Altrichter Note Looks to be a bit slow going up the ice. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jakub Altrichter Note Good stickwork on the backcheck leads to a turnover. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jakub Altrichter Note Half-hearted bump mostly just distracted the US puck carrier. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jakub Altrichter Note He's making me crazy. When you watch him, he has a good tool set, with good skating, elusive puck handling, above average work rate, but nothing is happening for him. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jakub Brabanec Note He has a quality skill set and good offensive instincts. He's been one of the top drivers for the Czechs in this game. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jaroslav Chmelar Note Second powerplay unit, playing low and battling at the crease. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jaroslav Chmelar Note Big player at 6'4, 198 Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021

Jaroslav Chmelar Note Decent recovery speed on the back check. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jaroslav Chmelar Note With his size and skating, if he develops some scoring (he's young for the draft) he could become a good NHL-type player. Need to see some offense first, though. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jaroslav Chmelar Note Bites on a fake by Lane Hutson at the blue line, and Hutson drives past and starts a dangerous sequence. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jaroslav Chmelar Note Great backhand look as he cuts hard to the high slot. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Jaroslav Chmelar Note Successfully chases down and catches Behrens on a back check. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Justin Janicke Note Speedy, just took an excellent line to prevent the shooter from a good look at the net. Went to the lane first, and then closed in on the shooter. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Justin Janicke Note Plays a slip and weave style. Ducks under bigger players and beats them with his edges. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Justin Janicke Note Tries to tie up Rysavy with his stick, but putting his stick out did nothing to stop Rysavy from getting his stick on the puck and scoring. Janicke needed to step in and actually tie up Rysavy instead of just trying to block him with a waist-high stick Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Justin Janicke Note His defensive game needs a lot of work to get to an effective level. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Justin Janicke Note Has the puck on the low boards, and he spins directly into the Czech defender and loses the puck. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Justin Janicke Note Throws a puck to the slot, but the only players there are all wearing Czech sweaters. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Shows some quickness through the neutral zone, then chips it past the US defender and goes to the corner. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Pucks scrum on the boards, he wins the puck then flicks a backhand pass to a teammate at the circle. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Top powerplay unit. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Skates hard to get back to his zone, going full out until he hit his defensive assignment then pulling up hard. There's no glide in his game. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Good choice to back off instead of attempting to race to a 50/50 puck. If he'd been unsuccessful, that would have been a 2-on-1 going the other way. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note He's a part of the action on every shift, always making some kind of impact on a play. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note What form on his one-timer. Looks picture perfect on form, and he gets a ton of power from it. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note One-timer, kept it low on the ice, but the goalie made a good save. Pajer's one-timer is top notch. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Steals a puck in his own end, drives up ice diagonally, entering the offensive zone along the left boards, but loses an edge pulling up. He then hustles back, lifts a stick, dives to block a shot. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Note Another smart, safe play, this time to chip the puck past a defender and clear his own zone. He put the puck into empty space and allowed his side to get relief from the US pressure and reset. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Lukas Pajer Summary There are a lot of good things in his game, but it's his one-timer that lights up a game. He plays well, skating is excellent, and made several smart choices with and without the puck. He's a player to keep an eye on as he develops over the next three or four years. Pajer looks like the type of player who cracks the NHL at 21 or 22 and people start asking about where he came from. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note Wide skating stride, his return brings his feet back to beyond shoulder width at best. He's leaking power everywhere. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note Good size at 6'1, 195 pounds as a D-1 Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note He goes to the front of the net any time he can. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note Strong on his feet, but needs to work on his overall technique and balance. He looks like a young player going through a growth spurt. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note Haven't seen him create much in his ice time, but he's working hard and putting in the effort on every shift. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note If you ever want to find McGroarty on the ice, just loot to the crease. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Rutger McGroarty Summary An interesting young player for the 2022 draft. He has a solid frame and good speed despite not having the best skating mechanics. He goes hard to the net and as he continues to develop looks like a player who has an NHL floor. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Ryan St Louis Note Skates well, moves his feet, but he's not affecting play much so far. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Ryan St Louis Note Missed a chance to change and then spent nearly two minutes on his shift. He was dead out there. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Ryan St Louis Note Skates well, but he's not active. There looks to be almost no urgency in his game. Follows the play instead of leading it. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Sean Behrens Note Uses his leverage and balance to just totally upend the much larger Simon Marha. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Simon Marha Note Paying a lot of attention to positioning, going quickly and diligently to his spots. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Simon Marha Note Digs a puck out from in front of his net, goes up the right side, pulls up, gets planted by Behrens. Ooof. Brian Fogarty USA vs Czech Republic (2021 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/29/2021
Brad Lambert Note Lambert is full activity every shift. Hitting, using his feet, always trying to make something positive happen for his team. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Buchelnikov Note Hard wrist shot from the circle goes just wide. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Buchelnikov Note Using physical play to create a turnover. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Buchelnikov Note Quality skating and speed, bordering on excellent-level mobility. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Buchelnikov Note Wrist shot causes trouble, then he gathers his own rebound low and tries to chip it off the goalie's back. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Buchelnikov Summary Interesting player that works hard at both ends of the ice. Forechecks well, uses his skating ability to create or deny chances. Feisty, with offense. I liked him. Sept 6 birthdate. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Katelevsky Note His feet go fast, but his body isn't going anywhere. Generating no forward power from his strides. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Katelevsky Note Skates completely hunched over. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Katelevsky Note Killing penalties Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Dmitri Katelevsky Summary Not a fan of his play in this game. Lackluster, skating is problematic, just seemed to bring little to the game overall. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Fyodor Svechkov Note Errant pass to nobody at the right point and puck goes out into center ice. Follows that with a beauty of a pass from below the goal line to the crease that should have been a goal, but saved. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Fyodor Svechkov Note Speed looks only average, good agility and balance though. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Fyodor Svechkov Note Poor choice to try a backwards, between-the-legs pass at the offensive blue line. Gave the puck away with less than five seconds in the period, and allowed the Finns a late attack. Just hold the puck there and protect the lead. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Fyodor Svechkov Summary Made as many mistakes as he made special plays. His speed is average but he gets to good spots on the ice. If he can clean up the mental errors and improve decision making, he could blossom. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Nice pass into space to lead his man to good drive into the zone. Smart pass. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Good lateral speed, using edges and crossovers to curl through the crease and get to the corner first. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Attempts a dangle in the high slot but leaves the puck behind. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Enters the zone, curls to the slot, wrists one easily saved. Good route to the high-danger area to create a chance. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Little give and go, rips a wrist shot low far side that beats the goalie clean. Fast release, with power. Nice shot. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Note Extends his arms with the puck at his hip to change the position of the shot release, trying to use more of the defenders position to screen the release. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikita Chibrikov Summary Drove a lot of the Russian offense in the game for a player not named Michkov. He has an excellent shot that he works hard to utilize and disguise. Smart player in offensive zone. He's the type of player that can both create and finish chances, and he has a good sense of where to put the puck to make the most of the game situation. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikolai Makarov Note Positioning looks sound and he just took a great angle to make sure the puck carrier stayed outside the dots. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikolai Makarov Note Closes the distance to head off a potential attack and regain inside position against the rushing Finnish forward. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikolai Makarov Note Big, strong defender playing a ton of minutes. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Nikolai Makarov Summary Just a solid, stay-at-home type of minute chewing defender. His positioning was fantastic, and he showed some good speed from time to time. He's a defender that will make life miserable for forwards trying to get to scoring spots in his zone. However, his offense seems limited, so he's a guy that teams will just park at the back end to shut down top opponents and make good first passes out of the zone. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Oliver Kapanen Note On the forecheck, chases Svechkov instead of positioning himself to cut off the escape route, and Svechkov is able to breakout. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Oliver Kapanen Note Another forechecking sequence, he's active, hounding the puck until he creates a turnover. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Oliver Kapanen Note Gets his stick into the passing lane and intercepts a breakout pass just outside the blue line. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Oliver Kapanen Summary It seemed like he was effective on every shift, not with anything fancy, just playing solid hockey in all three zones. He'll get better with experience, too. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Sami Paivarinta Note Coming back to support the defense, not in a hurry but calling out coverages. Stayed behind the puck carrier though, instead of pushing to catch him. Would have liked more intensity on the backcheck on that play. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Sami Paivarinta Note Jumps a pass at the blue line, then draws a short-handed penalty shot. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Sami Paivarinta Note Very good speed, but he seems to only use it on the attack. Still lacking urgency going back to his own end. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Sami Paivarinta Note Good recognition to cover the left point after the defender pinches in deep. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Sami Paivarinta Note Tough to pin down when he has the puck. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Sami Paivarinta Summary I liked everything about his game as long as he had the puck or was working in the offensive zone. On defense, he seemed like he understood what he was supposed to be doing, but didn't care a lot about doing it. If he sharpens up and develops play on the defensive side of the puck, he could become a quality second-line winger with scoring potential. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Samu Salminen Note Right-wing circle on the powerplay, hard one-time slap shot beat the goalie to tie the game. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Samu Salminen Note Tries a stretch pass, but the head man was surrounded by opposing players. Not the best choice from Salminen. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Samu Salminen Note Captain of the Finn U18 squad. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Samu Salminen Note Bats a puck out of the air waist height for his second goal of the game. Great hand/eye on that one, as the puck hit a stick and popped up right in front of him. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Samu Salminen Summary Offensive minded, but a quality hockey player at both ends of the ice. Showed a lot of potential in the game to become a top-six scoring forward in the NHL. I liked his stability in the game, even though he did make a few mistakes. He'll learn, and he looks like he is capable of a lot of potential development. Brian Fogarty Russian vs Finland (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/6/2021
Francesco Pinelli Note Skating looks a bit hunched and sloppy. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Francesco Pinelli Note Seems to struggle with his feet. Needed to get one more stride to a loose puck, but couldn't get there so he was forced to reach out to try to poke the puck instead. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Francesco Pinelli Note Works his way to a turnover off a bad play from the Czech goaltender, but then he just gave the puck back with a pass to a Czech player in the slot. What an excellent opportunity wasted. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Jakub Brabanec Note Has some quickness, but his hips look slow in pivots. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Jakub Brabanec Note Perfect setup pass for the one-timer by Pajer. Good weight, right in front of the back foot. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021

Lukas Pajer Note Hustles down ice and beats out Zellweger to nullify an icing. He made up ground and passed Zellweger. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Mason McTavish Note Closes from the slot to the corner, good movement, puts a hip into his man to force an early pass. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021

Wyatt Johnston Note Receives an excellent pass from Bedard, right at the top of the crease, and buries it on his first shift. He got that away in a hurry and the goalie had no chance. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Czech Republic (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021

Fabian Lysell Note Draws a penalty with his acceleration as he looked to split defenders and was tripped, but gets called for diving as well. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Fabian Lysell Note Lysell can fly. Excellent straight-line speed. Probably the fastest player in this game. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Fabian Lysell Note Jumps an ill-considered pass, dekes around Behrens, goes behind the net, wraparound, goal. Excellent individual sequence from the speedy winger there. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Fabian Lysell Note Hits the offensive zone with some speed, carries into the circle, ,the picks out the top farside corner with a laser wrist shot. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Fabian Lysell Summary Fast and skilled with a high scoring drive, Lysell looks to be a high-pace scoring winger for the NHL level. Will need to clean up a bit of his defensive play, but he was by no means a liability in his own end. He is, however, all offensive instincts. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Closing speed stands out as he chases down a breakaway opportunity Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021

Isak Rosen Note Active puckhandler. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Nice cross-ice pass from the right circle to the left point sets up a PP goal. That was a good look to find the clear path and lift the puck over sticks in the lane. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Another wrist shot blocked. He's forcing those attempts without much gusto. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Follows with an excellent pass to the far post that should have been a goal. His passes are already determined before he gets the puck, seeing the ice well. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Distributes the pucks with so much confidence, accuracy and intelligence. He just set up another attempt that should have been a goal. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Smooth skater, carries the puck so well, excellent vision and distribution, but so far lacking intensity. There doesn't appear to be much goal-scoring drive there. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Uses his speed to create a break, but his lack of offensive dynamism cost him when he got to the net. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Effective on the penalty kill because of his quickness and long reach. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Fearless passer. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Note Poor puck protection on that play, gives the puck away just inside the offensive blue line Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Isak Rosen Summary Good skater who is a natural playmaker. His vision and ability to get the puck to teammates are both excellent, and he reads the ice incredibly well. His usage and success on the penalty kill shows his defensive awareness is also very good. His shot is a weakness, though, and looks more like a tactic than a weapon. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Liam Gilmartin Note Solid hit in the neutral zone Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Liam Gilmartin Note Playing a physical game, used his shoulder and leverage to separate the puck the Swedish carriers, creates a turnover. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Liam Gilmartin Note Finds a loose puck in the high slot with plenty of time and space, but puts the puck over the top of the net. Would have liked to see him take one more step and force the goalie to make a move. However, he was likely just surprised to have everything so open all of a sudden. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Liam Gilmartin Summary A straightforward, physical forward with some offensive skill. He looks to be a bottom-six type of player who could develop into a decent two-way possession-type player at the higher levels. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Redmond Savage Note Good acceleration off the glide Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Redmond Savage Note Blocks a bomb from Olsson. Wow, that hurt. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021

Redmond Savage Note Lines up a hit at the blue line but misses his man entirely and the Swedes gain the offensive zone with little trouble. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Redmond Savage Note Good technique straight ahead, just not very explosive or fast. Changes directions well and his lateral movement is good or better. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Redmond Savage Note A couple of chances in the third period, but both times the puck slipped off of his stick. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Redmond Savage Summary Savage was mostly used in a defensive capacity here, killing all of the penalties and working hard in the defensive and neutral zones. He does have some offensive ability, but he lacks an explosiveness in his feet and in his hands that will likely limit his offensive upside as he moves up the ranks. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Rutger McGroarty Note Good hustle play to step into the defender's path, take him off the puck, curl to the slot. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note One timer into the side netting. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note Another one-timer, blocked in front. The shot seems a bit telegraphed. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note When he's holding the puck, he is patient and mostly picking out the right plays. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note One time slap shot that fooled the netminder. That shot actually looked much more threatening than some of the earlier big-wind-up slapshot attempts. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note Positioning is a but ragged in his own zone, but keeps his stick on the ice, in lanes, and stays attentive. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note Definitely not afraid to shoot. He likes to put pucks on net and his wrist shot is heavy. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note Gets a rebound at the edge of the crease and roofs it past the diving netminder. His career will likely be determined by how effective he can continue to be in that area of the ice. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Note Passing is not as natural a skill as his shooting. Passes are decently accurate, but he telegraphs them a bit, and they seem secondary options instead of chance generators. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sasha Pastujov Summary A shoot-first player who will make his living in the homeplate area of the ice. His skating is average, but he is strong on his skates and able to maintain his position when defenders are leaning on him. He needs to develop his passing game, but his shot is quick and sharp and instinctive. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sean Behrens Note Floats a soft pass off the boards along the offensive zone blue line, easily intercepted and turned the other way. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021

Sean Behrens Note Carries through the neutral zone with determination and some good maneuverability. Not a speedster, but takes a confident route into the offensive zone with the puck. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sean Behrens Note Patient at the left point while the play in low in the right corner, but as the puck moves towards the crease, he drives down weak side for a possible rebound chance. Smart play. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sean Behrens Note Gets a puck at the blue line, dips left and gets around two Swedish players to the outside, wrists one on net. He's an elusive puck carrier. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sean Behrens Note Again pushing the puck up ice. He's been one of the US's top possession players in the game. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Sean Behrens Summary An interesting player from the back end. He lacks a top gear, but his ability to maneuver through traffic and beat defenders despite not being super fast is impressive. He timed his attacks well, and played a smart game in transition, particularly. Still shaky in his own end (Lysell faked him out of his skates on one play), but he could become a good middle pair, transitional defenseman. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Simon Edvinsson Note Smooth movement with and without the puck Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Simon Edvinsson Note Going back behind his net to retrieve a puck, checking over his shoulder for options as he goes in for the puck, then making a safe play to seal the puck off from the forechecker and moving the puck to a teammate. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Simon Edvinsson Note Great read to intercept a breakout pass. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021

Simon Edvinsson Note Long-legged strides cover a lot of ice with little effort necessary. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
Simon Edvinsson Summary Another excellent Swedish defender with smooth , long limbs, and a deceptive speed. He looks almost sleepy at times because everything he does looks so effortless. Edvinsson could develop into a player that might one day be considered the best of his draft class. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021
William Stromgren Note Gets a loose puck in the high slot, uses his body to shield while he settles the puck, then puts a strong wrist shot off the post. Brian Fogarty USA vs Sweden (2021 World U18s) Video (With Replay) 5/3/2021

Braxton Whitehead Note Quick to a loose puck, then uses his speed to create a chance and draw a penalty. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Braxton Whitehead Summary His best attribute is his skating, showing both agility and speed. Gets to loose pucks, jumps into plays at both ends. He did not get many looks at the net in this game, but his hands looked okay. Needs seasoning. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Chase Bertholet Note Has the puck in his end, top of the right circle facing his goal. With two better passing choices to either defender, he chooses instead to buttonhole towards the boards and gets trapped there by a forechecker, and turns the puck over to the attackers. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Chase Bertholet Note Footwork needs help. He hops to get his feet in the right position for acceleration. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Chase Bertholet Note Lack of agility costs him on defense as he is having trouble keeping on his man. Ends up reaching a lot. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Chase Bertholet Note Takes a solid hit in open ice and loses the puck. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Conor Bedard Note Generates a lot of velocity on his shot, power and accuracy with a super-fast release. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor Bedard Note Comes into the zone on the left-wing side, pulls up and passes to the right point to hit a man just entering the zone with speed. Bedard sees the whole ice so well. That wasn't the most obvious option, but it was the best one. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor Bedard Note Rolling puck, bouncing puck, it makes no difference, he'll still get it on net with heat. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor Bedard Note Excellent look-off pass to the left circle for an assist. Showing shot all the way in, eyes on the net, then a perfect pass for an easy goal with the netminder out high to stop Bedard. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor Bedard Summary I will never get tired of watching Bedard play. He does everything so well, and has that innate sense for the game around him. His shot has a ferocious quality to it that everyone has to respect, and then his vision and passing are just as good or better. Makes plays at speed, but also slows the game down when he needs it that way. Just a brilliant player. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor Geekie Note Long strides with good form, he moves faster than he looks. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Conor Geekie Note Drives the goal line, slides a puck into the goalie's pads, then gathers the rebound and roofs it backhand from in close. Nice goal. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor Geekie Summary For a young player with his size (6'4, 205), he uses his body as a weapon, which many skilled young big guys either avoid or have not yet learned. Geekie's passing are excellent, but he misfired on shots a couple of times an looked a bit awkward in setting up his shot. Needs to work on his acceleration and footwork, but that looks correctible and will get better with time. I wouldn't say he is a top prospect, but he could be a good prospect. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor McClennon Note Strong balance to stay on his feet while fighting for space against a bigger player. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Conor McClennon Note Excellent long diagonal pass through traffic to lead Krebs in on a partial breakaway. That was a beauty. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Conor McClennon Note Gets a goal off his shin pad at the crease from the Krebs hot pass that got deflected up into McClennon's shins. Accidental goal for him, but it was his positioning that made it possible. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Conor McClennon Note Good hit. He may be small, but he plays hard. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Sloan Stanick Note Carries with speed into the zone, tries a pass to the front but leads his man too much and the puck goes into the corner. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Zachary Benson Note Active penalty killer. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021
Zachary Benson Note Making some questionable puck choices, often carrying or handling the puck when a simple pass would be a better option. Brian Fogarty Regina vs Winnipeg (WHL) Video (With Replay) 4/3/2021

Conor Bedard Note Steals a puck along the boards on the left side circle, pulls the puck around a player as he cuts to the slot, and then blows a shot past the goalie. That puck was in the net and the goaltender had barely begun to move. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021

Conor Bedard Note Great look to pass across the slot to the man cutting to the net, but they just missed the connection. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Conor Bedard Summary Did not disappoint in his WHL debut. It's obvious why Bedard is playing at 15, and other than maybe Ozzy Weisblatt, he was easily the most electric player on the ice. He is impossible to handle when he has the puck, and has a range of deceptive moves and puckhandling to protect the puck and create shooting lanes. Without the puck, he is constantly engaged all over the ice, and although his defense needs some development, he wasn't shy about using his body and looked eager to contribute to defending the net. He's an excellent skater and like all aspects of his game, his skating will improve with strength and experience. Definitely the real thing. Just a fantastic hockey player. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Drew Englot Note Not the most agile skater, a bit slow on his stops and change of direction, loses Weisblatt who steps to the slot and scores. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021

Tyson Laventure Note Good on his inside edges, giving him nice maneuverability at a slow glide. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Tyson Laventure Note He's got some speed. Brian Fogarty Prince Albert vs Regina (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/12/2021
Ashton Ferster Note Strong feet, well-balanced, allows him to absorb hits Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brayden Boehm Note Nice turn, finds his man, and delivers a solid body check along the neutral-zone boards. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brayden Boehm Note Good acceleration there. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brayden Boehm Note Throwing hits all over the ice. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brayden Boehm Note Tries to drive and turn the corner, but the defender matches him and shoulders him off his turn and into t he boards. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brayden Boehm Note Tracking the play, looks engaged, but he's more of an observer than a participant. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brayden Boehm Summary Plays a physical game with good skating, but in this game at least, the play was generally out of his effective range of interaction. Many times he was in the middle of the zone but the play was along the boards, etc. It made it difficult to get a good read on his puck skills. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Cayden Glover Note Has a wide-footed turn and stance, which makes him look off balance. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Steady stride, seems to conserve some speed as necessary. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Change of direction is crisp. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note One-times a long pass that was at his back foot. He got a lot of power on that. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Aware of opportunities and finds the play quickly. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Converts a back-door pass into an open net. Good footwork to open himself for the one-time shot. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Moves so well through the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note His first step looks good, allows him to jump into spaces. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Missed a one-timer (pass close to his front foot) but I couldn't tell if he whiffed or the puck jumped on the 20th-minute ice. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Has a fluid speed. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Good hit from Guenther to knock the player off the puck in the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Note Snaps a wrist shot from the slot. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Dylan Guenther Summary Definitely more of a scorer than a playmaker. Guenther has an excellent array of shots, with power and accuracy, that he uses often. His passing and vision are good, but he finishes chances far more than he creates them. He has very good straight-line speed and is agile in his turns and changes of direction. He can give and absorb hits, plays from the dots in, and will make his living beating NHL goaltenders from the left circle. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Jayden Henderson Note Buries the puck carrier into the boards. That was a thumping hit. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Looks small, working hard but having a difficult time getting the puck away from pressure in his own end. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Winds up for a big slapper from the right point but hits a leg in front. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Killing penalties, good stickwork in the lanes Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Very quick, and he uses that to help cover gaps. Not too fond of his puck management so far. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Gets in short-handed, winds up a slap shot. His backswing is slow to develop, giving goalies a tick of extra time to prepare for the shot. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Getting a ton of ice time in this game. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Another questionable puck decision leads to a two-on-one against, and he's forced to chase back. His speed again helping him to recover from his mistake. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Note Recovers a loose puck behind his own net, then backhands it out to the slot, right to a Medicine Hat player for a good scoring chance against. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Keegan Slaney Summary Needs to tidy up his defensive game a lot, and improve on his decisions with the puck, but other than being just 5'9, he has good tools. He is quick, can use his feet to cover his mistakes and take away space from attackers. However, he will absolutely have to limit those mistakes or players at the next level will take full advantage and his speed won't help him nearly as much. Brian Fogarty Medicine Hat vs Edmonton (WHL) Video (With Replay) 3/5/2021
Brendan Brisson Note Tries to slip a little pass across the crease to a wide open Beecher, but the puck clips the defender's skate and bobbles out of Beecher's reach. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Brendan Brisson Note Driving the high slot without the puck, but the pass was too hard and into his skates. I'd like to see him adjust a bit better, but that was tough handle. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Brendan Brisson Note Rips a pass through traffic, but I think that it surprised Beecher, and the puck skips out into the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Cam York Note Keeps turning his back to the puck. He needs to get that habit out of his game, and now. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
John Beecher Note Looks huge out there. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
John Beecher Note He's fast enough to beat people to loose pucks, but he still doesn't seem to use his speed often. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
John Beecher Note Pulls a puck down with a high stick, which means that the puck was probably twenty feet in the air. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
John Beecher Summary Great size, excellent on faceoffs and when he wants to use it, he can be quite fast. However, at this point he still seems fairly one-dimensional in the offensive zone and lacks creativity and fast reaction thinking. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Kent Johnson Note Diving attempt to sweep the puck away from an attacking forward at the blue line Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Kent Johnson Note Slick, behind his back pass into an open space at the blue line, finding Beniers is stride for a clean zone entry that appeared out of nowhere. Wow. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Kent Johnson Note Another great play to get the puck to Beniers. He poked the puck away just inside the blue to keep zone possession, then makes a lateral pass while falling to find Beniers. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Kent Johnson Note Puck on a string, helps keep the play in the offensive zone, then gets a shot in close, and Beniers buries the rebound. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Kent Johnson Summary Just an outstanding NCAA debut, showing patience, tenacity and super-clever passing vision. This game got out of control quickly (Michigan was up six goals before the end of the second period), so I want to see him in close combat, but he's fun to watch. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Note Skates are not coming back underneath him on the return, instead his feet are wide set Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Note Beniers takes the pass from Johnson, dips inside his man to get around him, passes off and then goes hard to the front of the net, where he tips in the game's first goal and his first for Michigan. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Note Moves much better than he looks like he will. Smooth on his edges. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Note Getting time on the penalty kill. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Note Just looks like he was born to play this game. So aware and at ease with and without the puck. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Note Works just as hard in the defensive zone as he does up ice. I really love this kid's game. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Matthew Beniers Summary Does everything so well, including getting deep into his own zone and playing solid defense to win back pucks. He is highly aware at all times, shows excellent antioption with and without the puck, and is constantly looking for ways to produce and help his team. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Michael Mancinelli Note Decent first step as he jumps to a loose puck and beats the defender to it. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Note Pivots with ease, and does so to keep square to the puck carrier Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Note Backs with the puck, dragging the forechecker deeper and deeper, then flips a pass to his D partner and Michigan goes fast up the ice. Power steps around the forechecker and beats him to the neutral zone for a five-on-four attack. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Note Smart choice to pull up a bit and allow the attacking forward to reach a loose puck first, which gave Power a better line and the angle to rub him off on the boards and gain puck possession. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Note Continues to absorb contact in order to make a safer pass. I wonder how long it will take before these Arizona State forecheckers stop closing on him like that. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Note Looking a bit lost tracking the speed of play in the defensive zone on that sequence. He was holding his spot more than playing active defense. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Note Excellent pass to feed York sneaking in on the left side, who then beats the goalie five hole. Great look. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Owen Power Summary For a draft-year defenseman playing his first NCAA game, Powers looks composed and in control almost the entire game. There were a couple of moments of indecision, but otherwise he was on top the game, making plays with his feet, his body, and his offensive game. Nice passing, safe reads, and moves so well for such a big guy. Just an outstanding prospect and a top draft prospect for sure. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Note Buzzing around the offensive zone (as usual), pulls the goalie way out of position but just can't quite tuck the puck in around the post. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Note Poor choice to try to one-hand a puck up the boards and push it past the opposing forward. Gift turnover. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Thomas Bordeleau Note Just audacious with the puck. He's not afraid to try anything at all. Brian Fogarty Michigan vs Arizona State (NCAA) Video (With Replay) 11/14/2020
Alexander Pashin Note Small, speedy player with fine first couple of steps. At a glide, he accelerates to speed in just a stride or two. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Note Wrist shot from the circle gets tremendous power with not much stick movement. Wrists snap and the puck is in the net. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Note Wheels and energy, especially in the offensive end. Just started a great give and go, but his partner took too long to get the puck back to Pashin or he would have been in all alone with the goalie. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Note Dishes out a good hit in the corner. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Note Turns the corner and flicks a pass to the crease but it's broken up by the defender. High scoring drive in Pashin. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Note Killing penalties, gives a little shove after the whistle to try to move the Canadian player away from the crease. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Note Should have moved the puck instead of trying to speed his way behind his net and up the boards. He got caught and buried and turned the puck over in his own zone. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Alexander Pashin Summary Pashin fits that typical small, crafty player mode that has had success in the NHL. He plays at both ends of the ice, and is willing to play a physical game despite his size. He is a player that drives play toward the offensive zone, and is capable of scoring once he gets there. He has a quality wrist shot with power and accuracy from distance. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Dmitri Zlodeyev Note Tied up his man a defensive-zone faceoff, and he's locked up at the crease. He stays there, keeping position well, then when the puck exits the zone he's up ice and puts a good solid hit on Weisblatt. D zone start, O zone finish. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Dmitri Zlodeyev Note Defensively responsible, quick to get back when he senses danger. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Dmitri Zlodeyev Note Got a hard wrist shot that rocketed off his stick and almost beat Garand up high from the circle. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Dmitri Zlodeyev Note Just not working very hard. His feet are silent a lot of the time. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Marat Khusnutdinov Note Tries a shoulder fake, the defender doesn't bite, so he passes to his winger. Good choice on a play where many would try to power through the defender instead of finding the better option. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Marat Khusnutdinov Note Skating is nice and compact, not much wasted movement, and the result is good speed and acceleration. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Marat Khusnutdinov Note Killing penalties and his mobility is a key asset for that. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Marat Khusnutdinov Note Wearing the C for Russia. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Marat Khusnutdinov Note Spins away to avoid a hit. High agility on display. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Marat Khusnutdinov Summary A smooth skater who plays up and down the ice and looks well coached. A player who contributes something on every shift. He might not be the most talented player on the ice, but he will be among the hardest working and looks willing to do all the little things well to make his team successful. He will grind, cycle, play defense, pick out good plays. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Pavel Tyutnev Note Diving stick sweep gets just a piece of Foudy's shot and saves an open net goal. Excellent effort. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Pavel Tyutnev Note Cruises the offensive blue line looking for something to come free, and he's reading those opportunities well. This time he cuts in, tries a move and loses the puck. Regains, shoots into shinpads in front. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Pavel Tyutnev Note Plays defense by waving his stick. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Pavel Tyutnev Note Has fast hands, good at collecting the puck, and in this case he settled it on the move, turning backward and fed Pashin at the side for a snap goal. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note Size is impressive at 6'3, 180 pounds. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note With Foudy coming in, he goes to a knee to block, and gets a piece. Looked tentative, though. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note Handled the puck well there when it was in his skates. Not easy for a tall, young player. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note Took a big hit in the corner, and although he got up quickly and re-engaged in the play, he seemed a bit disoriented at the net trying to catch back up to the action. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note Does well to find the puck at the crease and get a clean pk clearance. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note Commits early going to a knee to block off the shooting lane. He's done this a couple of times and the puck carrier just maneuvered around him taking advantage of Mukhamadullin's stationary position. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note You can see the skillset, height, skating, etc., but he looks tentative and a bit lacking in his positioning and physical game around his net. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Note Can’t handle Foudy's speed, and he gets beaten on the turn and Foudy scores. No shame in losing a skating match to Foudy, but Mukhamadullin could have leaned on him more heavily and cut him off better. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Shakir Mukhamadullin Summary Looks like a project defenseman that has the tools necessary to be an NHL defenseman but will need some time to fill out, get more comfortable in his own end, and get a bit of snarl into his game. After this game, he looks like a player that might be better suited to a less physical, big-ice-surface game in which he can use his feet and length. More of a puck mover than a carrier, but he does move the puck well. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Russia (Hlinka-Gretzky 2019) Video (With Replay) 8/12/2019
Charles-Antoine Dumont Note Agility and change of direction are very good. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note So smooth in everything he does, his stride, his composure with the puck. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Taking the puck behind the net, fakes the back pass, drives behind the net and out and turns for a shot. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Feasting in the faceoff circle. Cleanly winning drop after drop. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Fantastic display of puck handling. Uses the toe to stop the puck, pulls into his feet to avoid the poke check, then turns and shoots. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Hard slapper while gliding backwards, a one-timer from the left circle. Rocket. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Hands are active on the stick, loose and confident puckhandler. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Intercepts a pass in the neutral zone, drives the left wing, around the original passer, then cuts to hard to the net along the bottom of the circle and dishes to the player with a better shooting angle. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note With the Chicoutimi goalie behind the net with the puck, Mercer swoops in, takes it cleanly away from him, and goes straight into a wraparound for an easy but stunning goal. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Hands and vision are so great. In a board scrum, he still manages to see the open man and pick the puck out of the pile and swiftly backhand a pass to him before anyone can stop it. Sick stuff. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Hands are so crafty the opposing defense and goalie have a difficult time reading shot or pass. Either can come off of his stick in an instant. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note Loose puck, he collects and takes off. Lapierre tries to match him, but Mercer gains a step, and Lapierre hooks him to prevent a possible breakaway. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Note His full-out mechanics are not clean. He doesn't get enough extension or power in his pushes. If he cleans that up he'll get faster at the top end. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Dawson Mercer Summary Simply one of my favorite players of this draft, and has been for a while. He looks lean, and his power skating needs work, but his is agile and rarely loses out on getting to the spot before his opponents. His hockey iq is ridiculous, which helps overcome the missing top gear. But it's his hands that shine when he has the puck on his stick, and he seems to see plays no one else notices. Just a fantastic player and a potential NHL superstar. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Conserves his energy skating, but when he needs to go, he can generate speed, and immediately. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note In his zone, constantly checking to see where the attackers are. Head is on the proverbial swivel. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Matching the pace of the game without having to dig in, which allows him plenty of speed that he holds in reserve. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Nice shoulder check on the puck carrier changes the play. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Puck just inside the blue line, heavily covered by the defender, finds his man cutting into the zone with a beautiful and sneaky pass in stride. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Can close a two-step gap so fast, it seems to surprise puck carriers. In this case, he jumps up and the lifts the stick, takes the puck cleanly. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Pulls up, changes direction, kicks out a skate to stop a pass, and creates yet another turnover deep in the ozone. He's driving this Drummonville squad nuts on this shift. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Going end-to-end, beats Dumont with a move, then crosses in the ozone and gets clobbered with a high hit. Oooof. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Up the ice like a rocket to backcheck, then puts a shoulder into the jaw of the puck carrier for two minutes in the box. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Note Chips the puck around the quick Dion and then beats him to the corner and regains puck control. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Hendrix Lapierre Summary A great skater who works efficiently but can cover the ice when he needs to. Has a good passing touch and makes good choices with the puck. The team around him in the early part of the season was without a lot of pieces to help him, and it showed. Still, was effective on his shifts, always getting good touches, and he worked hard at both ends of the ice. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Jacob Dion Note Crisp first pass out of his zone. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019

Jacob Dion Note Reads the turnover coming, and gets back into position to neutralize the attacker at the crease before he can receive the puck. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Jacob Dion Note Top PP unit. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Jacob Dion Note Carries from behind his own net to below the goal line at the other end. Wheels and hands to weave through the neutral zone traffic with ease. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Jacob Dion Summary A solid young two-way defenseman who plays a sound game in his end, but uses his feet to get the puck out of the zone. He's hard to pin down in his own end, and if he can't skate the puck out, his outlet passes are safe and accurate. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Thimo Nickl Note Nickl shoves a puck at Mercer, who does his best to make something out of the questionable pass. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Thimo Nickl Note Not watching him, but hard not to notice another thoughtless pass. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Thimo Nickl Note Tries to stop a 2-on-1 by dropping to the ice and sliding completely out of the play on his belly. Easy goal for the Chicoutimi attacker. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Thomas Belgarde Note Not much ice time so far, but on that shift he was using his body, showed a little bit of pace with the puck. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
William Dufour Note Looks heavy on his feet. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
William Dufour Note Trying to take a hard backcheck line to cut off a breakaway, but just as he arrives, Charron cuts back and Dufour blows right past him, and Charron buries his shot. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
William Dufour Note Nice backhand pass. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
William Dufour Note In a foot race with Mercer, and loses badly. Mercer made up a good six feet from blue line to blue line. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
William Dufour Note Really needs to work on his skating. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
William Dufour Summary He knows what he supposed to do on the ice, and when he doesn't need to rely on skating he is effective. Otherwise, his skating is a weakness that prevents him from fully utilizing what looks like good hockey sense and okay hands. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Xavier Simoneau Note Footspeed looks above average, but when trying to change gears there is not a lot there. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Xavier Simoneau Note Gets a pass in the high slot and gets a hard wrist shot away with a quick release. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Xavier Simoneau Note Killing penalties and out there on the power play. He's doing everything. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Xavier Simoneau Note Great read to jump into the passing lane, pick off the clearance attempt and go straight in on goal. Tries to fake the shot, but the goalie hangs tight, and gets just enough of Simonteau's shot, and the puck trickles just outside of the post. Brian Fogarty Chicoutimi vs Drummondville (QMJHL) Video (With Replay) 10/19/2019
Xavier Simoneau Summary Small forward with okay speed but nothing special about his skating. He plays the game well, and as a D+1 I think he's likely to get drafted in the later rounds because he seems to have progressed enough this year to make him a safer bet for some teams. He'll struggle to get a permanent spot in the NHL, I think, because he lacks that dynamic quality to his game that a 5'7 player needs in the top league in the game.

Alex Johnston Note Back is almost parallel to the ice as he's skating. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Alex Johnston Note Turns are wide and slow, and he doesn't look crisp when needing to do a full stop and turn. Agility looking below average. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Alex Johnston Note Killing penalties, would like to see better lateral movement from him. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Alex Johnston Note Gets a flying chance for a one-touch at the crease but directs it just wide. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Alex Johnston Note Another quick chance at the net and this time his one-touch shot again goes wide. He's getting there, but not finishing. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Alex Johnston Note Tries a quick shot from below the circle and misses the net. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Alex Johnston Summary At times Johnston looks like a player who will make a difference, but then his skating or decisions fail him. His straight-ahead skating is good, but his turns are not crisp enough, which leaves him slowing on his change of direction and magnifying any poor choices he makes on angles of attack. He often missed the net even when in close, which is a shame because he kept working hard and getting into the spots on the ice where he could make an impact but his hands and feet failed him when he got there. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Brandt Clarke Note Tries to spin a backhand pass out to the point on the powerplay. Not a great choice, almost intercepted for a breakaway. He needed to be smarter with the puck there. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Brandt Clarke Note Pass from Foerster skips over his blade. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Brandt Clarke Note Goes fast to get back and get in position to slow a rush the other way. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Brandt Clarke Note Tries to take the puck end-to-end, shows good speed and handling through the neutral zone, tries to drag around a defender but loses his feet and the puck. Odd-man rush goes the other way. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Brandt Clarke Note Short, agile lateral movements. He's highly maneuverable in tight spaces. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Brandt Clarke Note In the offensive zone, puck on his stick, dips around a defender, closes on net, and a flick of his wrist beats the goaltender from three feet out, but he hits the post. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Brandt Clarke Note Standard setup has him on the left halfboards while on the powerplay. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Brandt Clarke Summary Clarke was involved in all facets of the game, including on the top powerplay unit with a lot of responsibility to work the puck on the left side, He is a skilled puckhandler and a great skater, using his power and edges effectively. Mobile and quick while changing directions, he's able to slightly shift his position efficiently when needed. He looks like a defenseman who plays behind his blue line with the sole intent of regaining possession and pushing play back into the offensive zone. A few of his choices while puckcarrying were a bit over-exuberant and risky, but in general his play was quite sound with and without the puck. He passes well and has a quick release on his shot either in close or from range. A 2021 player to watch closely. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Dominic Mufarreh Note Dump and chase sequence and he goes hard to the end boards to dig for the puck. Good effort, hard work against a couple of opponents. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Dominic Mufarreh Note First step off the faceoff has snap, then a smooth pivot to backwards and turning speed, fast to the boards to chase a puck. Smooth on his feet, like he's always on skates wherever he goes, the rink, dinner, to the movies. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Dominic Mufarreh Note Sees the big hit coming and sidesteps, dodging the hit completely, then turns up ice with complete possession of the puck. That's about the full definition of slippery in action. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Marc Boudreau Note Gets called for interference because he skated through the crease for no reason and essentially slew-footed the goaltender. Accidental? Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Marc Boudreau Note Pivot from the back to front looks clunky. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Marc Boudreau Note Long, full extensions when he drives up ice. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan Del Monte Note Decent speed, skates low with good knee bend, generates power then uses his edges well to maintain momentum while shifting angles. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan Del Monte Note On the bench getting his right hand taped by the trainer. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan Del Monte Note Chasing in his own end, getting turned around, just seems like he was struggling to find a place on that shift. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan Del Monte Note Not fast enough for the angle he took to the puck carrier, and he can't stop him from getting through the neutral zone. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan Del Monte Summary Del Monte has good speed and mechanics but looked like a raw player who has not yet adapted to the speed of play in the OHL. He's a slight player at 158 pounds, but at 16 years of age, he has a lot of time ahead of him to develop. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan O'Rourke Note Good, clean penalty-kill clear from deep in his own end to send the powerplay squad all the way back down the ice. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan O'Rourke Note Playing the left point on the powerplay. Like his puck movement out there. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan O'Rourke Note Skates with his eyes up, doesn't look hurried at all, but well-composed and alert. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan O'Rourke Note On the powerplay, he takes a puck from the left point, carries to the high slot area, then fires a pass back to the left and misses his man by four feet. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan O'Rourke Note Hounding backcheck, he is all over the puck carrier and doing it cleanly. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Ryan O'Rourke Summary Makes quiet impacts on each shift. He plays the game like a high-quality defensive forward, and plays the left point on the top powerplay unit. He's all around the puck and is the type of player that the puck loves to find when he is out there. Smart, simple game that with a bit of polishing will be NHL-caliber. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Note Skating hard to get back, good long strides with clean mechanics, gets his stick out in front. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019

Tyson Foerster Note Deep lean on his edges allows him to drive and turn, picking up speed as he comes out of his turn. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Note Coming up ice without the puck, a pass comes that is off target, and he adjusts his skating line to pick up the pass without reaching back or slowing down. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Note One-timer, waiting for it, drills it wide of the net. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019

Tyson Foerster Note Making good reads when he has the puck. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019

Tyson Foerster Note Excellent pass from his own blue line to the offensive blue line that surprises the defense, and the Colts get a breakaway. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Note Playing a ton of minutes, and at the end of the period, he's still working hard. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Note Defends by attacking the puck. He's relentless. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Note Shorthanded, teammate creates a turnover and Foerster goes hard with him, pulls up at the far post. A great effort by his teammate who cuts back and then drives to the net and slips the puck to Foerster, who then pots it into an open net. I like Foerster's patience and recognition there, to set up and wait for the play to develop and trusting his teammate to get the job done. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Note Awkward pass at a bad angle that comes into his skates, but he handles it perfectly. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Note On the penalty kill, he comes over the boards like he has been absolutely champing to get out there. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Tyson Foerster Summary Another quality showing from Foerster. He stood out by his high work-rate with and without the puck, tenaciously attacking on defense and offense. He moves his feet all the time, and shows excellent skating ability that with his size at 6'1 and 183 pounds makes him a force on the ice and a difficult opponent to play against. Has a variety of shots that he will use from the top of the circles in. A quality passer who makes good choices with the puck and rarely looks selfish with the puck. He does not look like a player who will break defenses apart by himself, but he will be a key contributor to a team attack. I like his play a lot and he looks like he will become a possession-driving top six NHL forward. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Vladislav Dvurechenksy Note Nice look to the slot but just misses him man with the hard pass through traffic. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Vladislav Dvurechenksy Note Good puck battle below the net, he's taking on two defenders and holding the puck until help can arrive. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019
Vladislav Dvurechenksy Summary Did not see much ice time in the game after Barrie fell behind the Soo quickly and their bench got incredibly short. When he was on the ice, he showed good skating and effort, working hard in all zones and moving his feet. A couple of passes looked more deliberate than natural, but in general his game looked okay especially for a big body forward playing in just his fourth OHL game. Brian Fogarty Sault Ste Marie vs Barrie (OHL) Video (With Replay) 12/19/2019

Anton Lundell Note Carries from the red line in, cuts to the middle at the top of the circle, then the left-shot player wrists a very hard shot, low short side. Fast release on the move. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/18/2019
Anton Lundell Note Takes the puck from behind his own net, powers through the neutral zone avoiding Canadian stick checks, goes hard to the net and gets pulled down for a penalty. Unstoppable there. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/18/2019
Anton Lundell Note Power play, right circle, one-time slapshot but his stick breaks. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/18/2019

Anton Lundell Note Finland hits the zone with speed, Lundell going to the slot without the puck, attentive, stick ready, get the pass buts its out in front of him. He reaches out, pulls it back just slightly and snipes a filthy, off-balance wrist shot top corner. He was extended and he still got that puck away so fast and with such power that the puck was in the net as the goalie was just starting to move his glove hand. What a shot.

Anton Lundell Summary A great forward prospect with size and a ton of skill. He competes hard all the time, has what seems to be an insatiable scoring drive, and he is a tremendous skater. When he has the puck, defending teams pull back trying to cut down his opportunities for powering the puck to the net, but his passing and shot are so good that he can punish opponents for giving him too much space. Lundell is the type of player that will draw a lot of pressure in the NHL, because the only way to contain him is to be on top of him. So talented, and he is a special, hungry player.

Kasper Simontaival Note Holding his place at the front of the net despite Canadian defenders trying to move him out. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/18/2019

Kasper Simontaival Note One-timer blocked. Brian Fogarty Canada vs Finland (2019 World U-18s) Video (With Replay) 4/18/2019

Topi Niemela Summary More of a cautious, stay-at-home defender who makes an excellent first pass. He plays a smart, controlled game in his zone, and will improve on his positioning as his skating improves. Looked poised with the puck, and made good decisions.

Alex Laferriere Summary He has the size, skating and scoring ability to be a good producing winger in the NHL, but he'll need to learn to play better within his limits. Sometimes, he's trying to do too much, and he was not particularly effective in this game. He did show some flashes of creativity and pure puck skills, but overall, with little help from his teammates, he did not show that well. I have a feeling I wasn't seeing him on his best night and the US U18s are a tough squad to battle. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019

Brett Berard Note Looks so comfortable with the puck. He can step, switch back, twirl, handling the puck, then make a 60-foot pass look too easy. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
Brett Berard Summary Berard's game is poise and skill, with quality skating abilities thrown in on top. He moves the puck with authority, although he seems more of a distributor than a scorer. His skating gets him into and out of tight spots, and he looks confident that he can escape trouble whenever he needs to. Moves the puck expertly, both in technique and reads, and often finds the player who needs the puck the most. Played well in his zone, but he looked a lot better moving forward. Has a bit of bite to his game, too. Brian Fogarty Des Moines vs USNTDP U18s (USHL) Video (With Replay) 11/15/2019
