Jack Warren, Isolation Footage – 10.27.11. vs. St. Viator

(F): Performed across the sheet with a lot of zip. Has a powerful stride and a decent first step – gets to loose pucks. Kept himself defensively aware and showed some hustle on the back-check. Has a disruptive stance on the ice and is good with angling off the play with his stick-work and positioning. Most of the offense he displayed tonight took place at the top of the circles or from the perimeter – no real offensive punch or creativity shown, and his hands had a hard time keeping up with his feet. Does own a quick flick of the wrist though and can hurl the puck towards the net quite deceptively. Utilized the boards effectively to chip the puck out of his zone and into the neutral zone, then would use his mobility and quick footwork to barrel around the opposition to retrieve it. Not lazy by any means but seemed to turn it up a couple of notches when he got angry and we liked what we saw. Wish he would play with that intensity and fortitude each and every shift.

(D): DOB: 7/19/97. 6’2, 185 lbs. Shoots right. A truly talented and dominant player. Is the youngest member of his team (he is a ’97 birth year amongst ’96’s) but plays beyond his years. Possesses outstanding hockey sense and the game, on occasion, seems effortless for him. An offensive defenseman with fluid footwork and a great deal of athleticism. Sees the ice extremely well. Holds a lethal touch and patience with the puck and can hit his mark with it. Fires a quick and accurate shot. Has pro size and uses it well to smother the play and grind players off of the puck. Shows ‘flashes’ of an appetite for the big hit and has been known to absolutely devastate bodies in open ice. He at times becomes less focused and urgent about his defensive responsibilities and falls out of position, leaving him to chase and rely on his long reach. Has to use his lateral agility and size on a more consistent and aggressive basis.

 Abbey Stanley, Isolation Footage – 09.10.11. vs. Chicago Mission

(F/D): Versatile and athletic. Played defense one shift and then offense the next, often times without any bench time in between. (Team was shorthanded this trip). Played any role she had to fill and was adept in doing so. Possesses huge hockey sense and vision. Strong on the puck and competes hard. Displayed varying gears of speed and won the majority of races to loose pucks. Needs to continue strengthening her edge control and lateral agility. Comes to play every shift. Is a smart player who does all the little things to put her team in position to win. Not abundantly skilled on offense but brings the storm into the zone with her strength, sense and fortitude. When she is on the ice, anything is possible.

(F):  A strong and intimidating forward. Is feisty and plays with an edge. Has an uncanny ability to read the play and stop its advancement. Yields a tough defensive posture, and stick, which caused many turnovers and transitional scoring chances for her team. Smart with good vision across the sheet. Possesses above average instincts for the game. Is a ‘in the right place at the right time’ type player. Proved to be more effective with her passing game rather than when she chose to activate her stick-handling and puck skills. Is a balanced yet stocky skater – needs to loosen up her footwork, work on her agility and strengthen her stride. She has the instincts and the intellect for the game that can take her places but she will need to develop her puck skills and power up her skating.
