Rylan Gould was one of the top players coming out of Manitoba, he produced 86 points this past season and was fifth in league scoring. An excellent all-around player who plays both ends of the ice, shows offensive flashes and has a decent sized frame. Continued to show offensive flair at the Graham Tuer tournament posting seven goals and 15 points in only four games. Followed that up with 4-10-14 in six games to end up 2nd in scoring at the Winnipeg Jets AAA Challenge. Uses nice change of direction to elude defenders and then can either distribute or attack the net. Good, heavy shot. Will attack the net occasionally but always has his head up to find an open man, great distributor of the puck who is typically looking to pass first. Contributed offensively all season but is engaged in his own end as well. His draft stock has shot up more than anyone else in the province over the course of the season. Potential to be a scorer at the WHL level.
