June 2023 – Fink was selected 218th overall by the Predators. Pat Quinn
June 2023 – The AJHL’s regular-season leading scorer with 41 goals and 56 assists for 97 points in 54 games, Fink played a major role in the Brooks Bandits being near unbeatable this season with a record of 53-5-2. He especially stood out at the World Junior A Challenge as he tallied 12 points in six games for Canada. His intensity was on display, he showed compete and drive well beyond his size, and made himself the offensive focal point of that team.
A creative mind who plays with high intensity, Fink’s ability to open up lanes to pass and shoot pucks through is uncanny. He boasts a whippy, accurate shot which has a knack of finding its way through opposing netminders. His intensity carries a lot of weight in his defensive game, as his positioning itself can be hit or miss. The biggest issue with Fink is the fact that his skating stride is subpar. His stride extensions are insufficiently deep, and his recoveries way too short, making him struggle in getting up the ice. Some in-depth work on his skating mechanics could unlock some alluring second-line upside, but Fink has a lot of work to do to become an NHL-caliber player. Hadi Kalakeche
