October 10th vs Eastman Selects – Hodnett is a highly skilled, great skating two-way center. He was always talking to his line mates directing player on where to go. He was always engaged in the play with or without the puck, using his vision and IQ to create chances in the offensive zone. He back-checked hard multiple times, won board battles then carried the puck through the neutral zone with speed. He is a quick skater but understands when to speed up and slow down when entering the offensive zone. His hand-eye coordination was on display making some great tip attempts and batting the puck out of the air. He has great hands and puck skill and always had his head up. Seems to be a pass first player, and would like to see less hesitation to shot the puck. Hodnett was the best forward for RHA today and worked very hard. He took no shifts off. (Luke Holding)

October 3rd vs Southwest Cougars – A versatile forward with ability. Hodnett has good, evasive skating and vision to pick out the open guy. A smaller player but not afraid to attack bigger by taking the puck to the net and aggressively hounding loose pucks. Create chances with very high level puck skills. et front support while on PK. Excellent ability to finish. I thought of Hodnett more as a goal scorer last year but his vision and ability to create chances for his line mates were on display today. (Darryl Martin)
