March 2020 – Focht had a productive 19-year-old season for the Hitmen. His goal scoring metrics increased while his per-game totals plateaued. He was especially impactful in the first-half. The fifth-round pick has played his four seasons of WHL hockey and is eligible to move on to the American League. However, it wouldn’t be overly surprising to see him return as a 20-year-old and look to really blossom offensively. The Utica Comets’ lack of centre depth may play a role in that decision. Cam Robison

June 2019 – The Canucks selected the overage centre with the 133rd pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. Focht played well for the Hitmen scoring 26 goals and 64 points in 68 games. He was recently invited to Canada’s Summer Development camp for the 2020 WJC. The 6′ forward plays with a lot of determination. He has good hockey sense, good puck control and puts in an honest effort on a consistent basis. Despite being a 19-year-old, he still has some physically maturing to do. Cam Robinson
