Defensemen

Matvei Shuravin

By |2024-07-13T12:45:57-04:00July 13th, 2024|

A large defenseman that can skate well and shut down opponents at a high level. His offensive and transition game are in question but considering his strong skating foundation Shuravin could develop into a competent middle-pairing defenseman who can pitch in offensively.

Owen Protz

By |2024-07-08T17:04:20-04:00July 8th, 2024|

Protz excels in the physical side of hockey, with a persistent motor for big hits. Many negative aspects of his game could be addressed with significant skating improvements.

Tyrel Bauer

By |2024-07-05T15:07:24-04:00July 5th, 2024|

High energy, physical, pro-framed right-shot defensive defenseman. Lays heavy hits and will matchup and shutdown opponents top players. Shows capable puck moving ability, along with exceptional leadership qualities. As a prototypical stay-at-home defenseman, he has additional value in peripheral category leagues including hits, blocks, PIMS, and plus minus.

Henry Mews

By |2024-06-29T17:51:08-04:00June 29th, 2024|

Fluid puck-moving defenceman who plays a safe style. More dare in his game and work on defensive aggression could unlock second-pair potential.

Noel Fransen

By |2024-07-13T11:27:33-04:00June 29th, 2024|

Fransen is a mobile puck-moving defenseman whose off-puck habits will need refinement before making the leap to the NHL but who could anchor a second pairing if he hits.

Will Skahan

By |2024-06-29T16:41:51-04:00June 29th, 2024|

Raw, physical defenseman with range and mobility. Can close gaps well in transition, and plays aggressively. Decision-making needs to improve to unlock second-pair upside.

Jesse Pulkkinen

By |2024-06-29T15:33:29-04:00June 29th, 2024|

Towering, mobile left-handed defenseman with great poise and tools. Needs to rein in the offensive aggression, but can develop into a unique second-pair blue-liner.
