Observations

January 2020 – Kaiden Guhle already has NHL size and he is a good skater for his size. He struggles at times when pivoting in the defensive zone but he does a good job of closing the gap before the need to pivot arises. He has a long reach and a good stick defensively. The defensive end of the ice is where Guhle excels best. He uses his size well, engaging physically and imposing his will at times at the junior level. He struggles at times against bigger players because he needs to develop strength but the foundation for a high-end defensive game is there. Offensively, Guhle plays a stable, sturdy game. He can make a good pass to exit the defensive zone and start transitional play. Once into the offensive zone, Guhle plays a safe game. His biggest weapon is a big shot from the point. He has a bomb that he unleashes without hesitation and when he hits the net, it can be difficult for goalies to make the save if the net-front has any sort of traffic. As a distributor from the backend, he is capable yet unspectacular. He lacks creativity and the offensive instincts that could make him a truly high-level player in the offensive zone. Guhle will be a blueliner who plays a safe defensive game and contribute in a tertiary role offensively. Tony Ferrari
