The part that is most special about Caleb’s game is his innate ability to anticipate the play. There are times when he is on the ice that it seems as though he already knows where the puck is going to end up moments before it is even on route to end up there. This allows Caleb to position himself in areas of the ice where he can capitalize on offensive opportunities; as well as consistently make defensive reads that cause turnovers by the opposition in all three zones. The fact that Hadland also possesses separation speed and a dangerously quick release on his shot (as well as impressive strength on his backhand) is all just a cherry on top, but what really elevates him above his peers is his well-developed hockey IQ and ability to anticipate the game at an elite level.
