November 2023 – Basha has been hiding in fellow Tiger Cayden Lindstrom’s shadow at times this year, but he more than deserves his flowers. An exceptional skater who consistently explodes out of the defensive zone with the puck on his stick, Basha has been getting more and more comfortable jumpstarting those breakout opportunities with defensive mapping, anticipating play well and positioning himself proactively in his own zone.
On the puck, there are some limiting factors. Although his brain more or less keeps up with his feet, his hands aren’t yet there. He struggles to handle the puck off reception, and doesn’t have the shooting mechanics off-stride figured out yet. The upside if he can get his hands up to speed is interesting, but his versatility could see him become a bottom-six transition force with or without progression in that area. Hadi Kalakeche
