(C): DOB: 1/05/94. 6’1, 185 lbs. Shoots left. A Latvian import playing his second season with the Fighting Saints of the USHL. An extraordinary competitor with excellent hockey sense. Highly talented and powerful – intimidates with skill and strength. Strong skater with a smooth and long stride. Possesses great footwork and agility. Can escape pressure and tear his way thru traffic with his tight stop-and-starts and seamless ability to change directions while still in flight. Protects the puck very well with his body and reach. Tough physical presence in that he cannot be removed from the puck and has the tenacity, desire and grit to come get when he wants it. Attacks the net often and owns a soft touch which allows him to work magic with the puck. Can absolutely rifle a booming shot to the net. Has an outstanding work ethic, both on and off the ice. Zemgus is a bona fide player – has all the physical tools and skills to become a pro player. It will be no surprise to hear his name called during the first round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
