Hunter Hatcher – Long Term Player Watch

Posted on July 4, 2020

I love the fact that he plays with an edge and does not take crap. He fights and battles…. and he’s smart about it. I’ve see him yap and he has the ability to suck opponents into stupid penalties. To me he’s a kid who will thrive as he plays against older and smarter competition.

Game Evaluation: Brandon Wheat Kings vs Moose Jaw Warriors (12/31/19) 2020 Draft Prospects

Posted on July 4, 2020

Schneider was the most complete player on the ice for his team. The composed defenseman can do it all. He is physical, competes hard, and plays a professional style game. He ran the Wheat Kings’ power-play as the top man of their umbrella and was the leader of the breakout. He works both sides of the ice efficiently and is an excellent…

Jackson Berezowski

Posted on June 28, 2020

Jackson is a 5’10” 174 pound ball of energy. As an F1, he causes chaos on the forecheck. He attacks at full speed and his sole intention is to separate the defenseman from the puck. He hits hard and he has the lower body power to knock players on their backsides.

Ben King

Posted on June 27, 2020

(9) Special Teams Potential – We feel Ben’s first touch and anticipation make him a solid professional second unit power play option. His willingness to maintain shooting lanes and success on the face-off dot make him a natural high level penalty killer. We view Ben as a player who can play more than just 5 on 5 minutes.

Casey looks and plays bigger than listed. He is easy with the puck as his first touches are soft and he seldom has trouble making plays up ice. He takes hits to get pucks up the ice quickly and he is clever in creating passing lanes. Casey plays an easy and confident game.
