Marek Howell

NAME: Marek Howell TEAM: Calgary Royals (AEHL) HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6’1, 175 lbs POSITION: Defence HAND: Left November 10th, 2020 vs Calgary Flames: There was a point in the first period when Howell skated right through the Calgary Flames and created a great chance. I wish we would’ve seen that Marek Howell a few more times. He played an okay game offensively but wasn’t massively involved. I would’ve liked to have seen … Read more

Tristen Doyle

NAME: Tristen Doyle TEAM: NAX (CSSHL) HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 5’8, 161 lbs POSITION: Defence HAND: Right November 6th, 2020 vs Edge: He wants to be an offensive threat. That was my biggest take from Tristen Doyle. He wants to have the puck in the offensive zone and be in action. Which is great, but a couple of times he jumped the gun a little too early before taking care of his defensive responsibilities. However, due … Read more

Charlie Elick

NAME: Charlie Elick TEAM: Edge School (CSSHL) HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6’2, 170 lbs POSITION: Defence HAND: Right November 6th, 2020 vs NAX: If there’s one thing that’s for sure about Charlie Elick’s game, it’s his ability with his feet. He really pushes the pace of play with his skating and breezes by everyone with ease. I haven’t seen that from many of the defensemen in this year’s class. He’s quick on his edges, giving himself that extra … Read more

Reid Varkonyi

NAME: Reid Varkonyi TEAM: NAX (CSSHL) HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 5’10, 170 lbs POSITION: Forward HAND: Right November 6th, 2020 vs Edge: There’s a lot to talk about with Reid Varkonyi, but we’ll start in the face-off dot first. He was dominant in this game. Every face-off seemed to be a clean win for him. It was impressive to see. Secondly, his strength was another aspect that jumped off the page to me. Varkonyi was rarely … Read more

Brock Souch

NAME: Brock Souch TEAM: NAX (CSSHL) HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 5’4, 115 lbs POSITION: Forward HAND: Left November 6th, 2020 vs Edge: Brock Souch was the smallest player on the ice, but he doesn’t let that define his play. He gets stuck in battles and actually plays a decently physical game. His intelligence intrigued me. Souch read numerous plays perfectly throughout the game defensively breaking up plays with interceptions turning defence into offence. He’s got a bit of … Read more

Corbin Vaughan

NAME: Corbin Vaughan TEAM: RHA Kelowna (CSSHL) HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 5’11, 185 lbs POSITION: Defence HAND: Left November 6th, 2020 vs Okanagan Hockey Academy: Corbin Vaughan gives you a little bit of everything. He gets the puck moving around in a timely manner and then after the pass he looks to stay in the play. Vaughan finds the open ice and gives his teammates an easy outlet. Vaughan is a strong defenceman, and it shows when … Read more

Jaxsin Vaughan

NAME: Jaxsin Vaughan TEAM: RHA Kelowna (CSSHL) HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 5’11, 181 lbs POSITION: Forward HAND: Right November 6th, 2020 vs Okanagan Hockey Academy: Jaxsin Vaughan has a gritty style to his game. He’s a punishing player who finishes every check hard and plays aggressive on the forecheck. He gets into those areas around the net and loves to lean his shoulder into his opponent to drive the net. I noticed it a few times … Read more

Jordan Gavin

NAME: Jordan Gavin TEAM: St George’s (CSSHL) HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 5’11, 161 lbs POSITION: Forward HAND: Left November 7th, 2020 vs St George’s: My biggest take away from Gavin is his ability to find the puck and score. He scored five goals in this game. He was barely involved in the play for most of them until he scored, which isn’t a bad thing—Gavin times his opportunities to near perfection, which displays a high hockey IQ … Read more

Caleb Hadland

Name: Caleb Hadland Team: Red Deer Rebels U15 AAA (AEHL) Height/Weight: 5’9, 155lbs Position: Forward Hand: Left   November 8th, 2020 vs Sherwood Park: Compete and energy are present at all times when Caleb Hadland is on the ice. Hadland is quick into each battle and consistently hunts for the puck and wins back possession. His offensive abilities are endless. He brings great speed and can quickly burst by defencemen. Hadland comes with a … Read more

Keith McInnis

NAME: Keith McInnis TEAM: Yale Lions (CSSHL) HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6’0, 161 lbs POSITION: Defence HAND: Left November 7th, 2020 vs St George’s: Keith McInnis showed his strength early knocking down a St George’s forward with ease early on. He’s a powerful player in all aspects with his big frame, strong legs and a good grip on his stick. With all of that, it’s difficult for opponents to dispossession him of the puck. That allows him to … Read more
