Observations

May 2019 – Hentges is a determined player who has battled injuries but has shown the willingness to work on his craft away from the ice when that is the case. He had a solid freshman season at St. Cloud State University (NCAA) scoring 10 goals and 10 assists in 37 games. He uses his speed to beat defenders and get to the front on the net. He does the little things well and positions himself in the offensive zone to create good scoring opportunity. Hentges did not deal with any major injuries this season and his development is back on track after a couple of injury plagued draft year. That factor caused him to fall all the way to the seventh round as no one was able to get a good read on how he had been developing in his lone year in the USHL. The Minnesota native needs to work on his positioning and compete level in his own zone but he excels at moving through the neutral zone with speed. His resilience will be a key factor as to whether Hentges makes it to the professional ranks after spending a couple of years in the NCAA. Tony Ferrari
