Seamus Malone, Isolation Footage – 12.18.11. vs. Detroit Compuware

(F): DOB: 5/06/96. 5’9, 160 lbs. Shoots left. Gritty two-way player with an outstanding offensive punch. Is explosive with the puck and his vision. Makes those around him better. His drive with the puck is commanding and forceful, yet his hands own a soft, delicate touch. Deceptive and crafty – can shake pressure and open up lanes for a fast feed or a quick shot. Is a powerful half-board catalyst on the power play. A quick and mobile skater with outside speed. Can burst in coming wide but needs to work on his strength to gain ground on the inside. Great hockey sense and has an uncanny ability to find the open ice, and to make himself available for the puck at all times. Strong defensive support. Owns a high compete level and is more than willing to get his nose dirty. Needs to work on his focus and intensity when taking draws. Has the skills and smarts to excel at a higher level. Will be a scary prospect when he finds more strength. Two more years to develop before becoming NHL Draft eligible in 2014. Is eligible for the OHL Draft this coming spring, and as of right now, we fully anticipate him to be selected in the fifth to sixth round.
