Fantasy Summary

High-end athlete who can play physical and skate really well. Great shot and natural instincts means the offensive side of his game has room to grow


Observations

Click to Expand
May 2022 – Struble may have had a down year in terms of production with just three goals and 14 points in 34 games following up a shortened 18 game season with two goals and 12 points, but his actual play has continued to trend upward and he has displayed a continued refinement of his game. The left-shot defenseman has one of the most intriguing toolkits in the entirety of the Habs’ prospect pool, with high-end strength, skating mechanics, aggressiveness, and confidence with the puck. While his former captain, Jordan Harris, was always more likely to make the NHL, Struble still has the higher ceiling, making him an intriguing option for fantasy managers, who could capitalize on his lower production to pick up a player who has a shot at becoming a second-pairing puck-moving defenseman with second power-play upside. Expectations will be high for Struble next season with Northeastern as there will be a Harris-sized hole needing to be filled, and I would bet that Struble excels with the added responsibility and pressure. Sebastian High

May 2021 – Struble had a strong sophomore season for Northeastern as he notched 12 points in 18 games. His game has continued to mature as he is improving on his decision-making abilities, which will better compliment his strength as a powerful skater and his ability to use his physicality. Pablo Ruiz

March 2020 – Struble was having an impressive freshman year before getting hurt with a season ending lower body injury. After going scoreless in his first 8 games, he found his stride and finished his season with 10 points in his last 13 games. Pablo Ruiz
