#8 Kanye Huang F – Huang did a great job at handling the puck when it was on edge and hard to control. Did a great job at skating around the offensive zone and being patient enough to look for open passing lanes. Not afraid to throw around the body.
#18 Gunnar Gabruch F – Gabruch is a very effective goal scorer. His first goal he had a great forecheck to create a turnover and utilize his great shot to beat the goaltender. He provided a much needed spark as at that time the Outlaws were unable to get any offense going despite controling the majority of play. His shot is very accurate allowing him to score from every area in the offensive zone.
#21 Tyson Buczkowski D – Buczkowski was flying all night long. I lost track of the amount of times he would carry the puck up the ice and get around every defender that challenged him. His edge work allows him to change direction at will. His skating is just elite. When it comes to his shot, the amount of power it has is just ridiculous. Combine all that with his stick handling abilities as a defenseman and you have a game changing elite talent.
West Central Wheat Kings:
#14 Dayton Reschney F – Reschney displayed his strong compete levels throughout the entire game. He is a shorter player who refused to back down from physical play and often was seeking it out in this game. He had good positioning in the offensive zone which led to high scoring chances. Showed off his puck handling skills nicely.
#17 Cam Perlinger F – Cam was great in the offensive zone. He has great hands and utilizes them whenever he can. His stickhandling really excells when in tight spots and in the slot with pressure on him. His edge work along the boards gives him the edge to break out and create scoring chances at will.
#23 Jared Abrams F – Abrams really stood out for me tonight. He played with non stop energy and really provided a much needed spark in the third period. His physical play was good, constantly putting pressure on defenders. Smart skater, and showed off his vision making some excellent passes into the slot.
#29 Tyson Borschneck G – Tyson’s play in the first period was perfection. The Outlaws were dominating the offensive zone and just couldn’t solve Borschneck. He was reading the plays so well making cross-crease saves with exceptional rebound control. Unfortunately with the pressure the Outlaws had the entire game they eventually found ways to beat Tyson, but he still had a great game and didn’t allow any bad goals.
