Observations

February 2019 – The Kootenay Ice have struggled mightily for some time. They’ve been a consistent bottom-feeder for the last four seasons and are continuing to flounder in 2018-19. Things have gotten so bad that the team announced recently that they would move to Winnipeg to begin the 2019-20 campaign. The one bright spot? Peyton Krebs. The dynamic forward was selected first overall in the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft and has been a beacon for the squad. Despite being saddled with less-than-stellar surround talent, he’s managed to produce at a significant pace since entering the league and has been a consistently ranked top-10 talent for the 2019 draft. 

Krebs takes creative lines to dangerous areas of the ice. He’s the type of player that sees plays develop before those around him and uses that to exploit the opposition.  He’s a playmaker who can impact the game on any shift. He’s also capable of playing all three forward positions but likely ends up on the wing in the NHL. Cam Robinson
