Observations

December 2019 – Keanu Derungs is a crafty player who likes to make the game exciting every time he’s on the ice. He isn’t afraid to try new things and doesn’t shy away from his opposition with the puck on his stick. He is a good skater who challenges defenders by attempting to cross their face in tight as he enters the zone, making things difficult for the defender but oftentimes puts himself in a tough spot by winding up along the boards forcing himself to win a battle to regain the puck. He does a good job in those battles, as well as in front of the net but he’s at his best in space. He was a surprise omission from the World Junior selection camp for the Swiss but the shifty forward should show just how good he is in the WHL with the Victoria Royals. He’s improved throughout the year while he acclimates to playing in a new league. Watch for the WHL rookie to continue having a strong year and earn himself a mid-round grade on most draft boards. Tony Ferrari
