Fantasy Summary

A mobile, left-shot defender with a good IQ. Projects as a bottom-pairing asset.

June 2023 – Mynio, a left-shot defender, was drafted 89th overall by the Vancouver Canucks. As a top-four defenceman with the Seattle Thunderbirds (WHL), the Kamloops native showcased strong skating ability, allowing him to excel both defensively and offensively. His proficiency on the ice stems from his quick footwork and astute decision-making, enabling him to effectively halt opponents’ advances and create scoring opportunities from the rush.  Even so, it is worth noting that he is not considered an exceptionally creative player when it comes to puck-handling. While he can make offensive plays, his style leans more towards utilizing his skating abilities to generate, rather than relying on intricate moves or exceptional play making skills. Overall, a bottom-pairing defender is likely the ceiling here – possibly second -, but should be considered strong organizational depth at the moment. Check back next year before drafting. Dave Hall
