Observations

January 2019 – Thimo Nickl is having a solid campaign for the Drummondville Voltigeurs. In 37 games, Nickl has recorded six goals and 21 assists. Due to his strong offensive campaign, Central Scouting and the CHL have caught notice and they invited the Austrian defenseman to the Kubota CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in Hamilton. In terms of his playing style, Nickl is a strong passer. His cross-ice, stretch, and bounces passes always seem to be accurate. His shot selection is quite sound and often times will generate quality rebounds on the power play. In the defensive zone, Nickl can be physical at times and will look to make smart backchecks along the half wall. If Nickl can continue to put up strong numbers in the second half of the season, you can expect his fantasy appeal and draft stock to rise. Josh Tessler
