Observations

June 2019 The Lightning selected second-year eligible defenseman Max Crozier in the Fourth Round of the 2019 Draft at 120th Overall. Crozier spent his overage season with the Sioux Falls Stampede in 2018-2019, where he posted 10 goals and 43 points in 60 games played with a gaudy penalty minute total of 132 minutes. Crozier’s greatest asset is his skating ability; he’s quick and smooth on his edges which allows him to transition the puck and control gaps on attackers with ease. Not the biggest player at just 6’1”, 194 lbs, but loves to play with a physical bite to his game and is not afraid to lay the body on attackers to separate players from the puck and deny zone entries. Lacks the puck skills, at this time, to become a powerplay contributor at the pro level, but can pick up points with his ability to transition the puck and owns the upside to become a number four or five defenseman.
