Great Skater Big Body Good positional awareness
unimpressive offensive instincts not an out of this world passer
I live in Portland and just started following the Hawks. I'm not well versed enough to quote stats vs other top defensive prospects, but in the small sample size I saw - you basically nailed it. He's certainly a monster on the ice, and creates space offensively. However, it was rare that it materialized into a major chance. Every time he would skate up the ice with the puck, I would get excited, but he never took over the game. It might be interesting to see how he adjusts to the speed/size of the NHL
Hopefully this means even better things for Pouliot, who has looked pretty terrific offensively.
So Harrington and Maata are on WBS now signing ATO's, Harrington is 20 but Maata is still 18, younger than Pouliot by about 7 months, since all three are signed by the Pens there's nothing stopping Pouliot from also signing an ATO, is there?
