Scouting Report: Lucas Raymond

Photo Credit – Frölunda HC

Lucas Raymond played the bulk of his games this season in the SHL with Frölunda HC. In 33 games, Raymond mustered up four goals and six assists. The point totals might seem on the lower end for a prospect, who most analysts and scouts have as a top five NHL Draft prospect, but you should not be concerned. In Swedish hockey, at the SHL level, players with more seniority get more minutes. Instead of getting top line minutes like his counterparts (Alexis Lafrenière and Quinton Byfield) had in North America, Raymond would get anywhere around 9 to 12 minutes a game and was often placed on the third or fourth line.

Not only did Raymond play in the SHL this season, he also played for Frölunda in the SuperElit and represented Sweden at many international tournaments including the World Juniors.

When you watch Raymond closely, you see just how remarkable he is in every zone. In the offensive zone, he is constantly applying pressure and forechecking. When Raymond is in the neutral zone with the puck, you can expect him to glide up the ice in transition. If he does not have the puck in the neutral zone, Raymond is pressing up against the attacker and blocking his opponent from completing a zone entry. In the defensive zone, Raymond might not apply as much pressure, but his is hovering all over the ice surface and constantly uses his frame to press up against his opponents mid-cycle.

Raymond’s Style Of Play

As I mentioned earlier, Raymond is constantly applying pressure. If I had to be direct, Raymond is a pest. He is a pest that you cannot avoid. Terminix can not slow Raymond down. When Raymond has you in his field of vision, he will badger you for the puck. No matter what zone. No matter what situation. Raymond is always in your face and looking to scoop up the puck. In the offensive zone, he will use his stick more than often when applying pressure as he will look to snag the puck with a quick poke-check.

Raymond’s skating is a joy to watch. Instead of relying on a wide stride to get up and down the ice with electrifying speed, he will opt to use his crossovers to help his acceleration. Raymond is able to use his crossovers to gain speed because of how quick he is with his crossovers. Some hockey players are strong with their crossovers, but are not that quick with their feet movement. Raymond is. If Raymond is not utilizing his crossovers to propel him down the ice, he has a wide stride and can speed up the ice without hiccup. While there is a lot to love with Raymond’s skating, the only area that needs slight improvement is his edges. For the most part, he does not struggle with his edges, but every now and then, you will see Raymond lose an edge.

In the defensive zone, if Raymond sees that his defensemen have control of the puck and foresees a breakout coming, he will skate quickly into the neutral zone in order to provide his defensemen with an opportunity for a stretch pass. Raymond thrives when he is gifted a stretch pass in the neutral zone, as he can use his speed to rush past traffic and go one-on-one with the opposing goaltender.

One of Raymond’s most underrated attributes is his puck control. When Raymond has control of the puck, he will not cough it up. His puck control is reminiscent of Toronto Maple Leafs winger Mitch Marner. Like Marner, when Raymond is controlling the cycle he can execute quick tight pivots/turns in traffic and manages to hold onto the puck.

In the offensive zone, Raymond feels at home in the slot. When Frölunda is on the power play, he will park himself to the left of the crease. At even strength, Raymond shifts from the low slot to the high slot and that is dependent on his teammates’ puck movement. If Raymond has possession of the puck in the slot and looks to pass the puck, he will more than likely deliver tape to tape passes. Sometimes, Raymond will deliver a tape to tape pass to the half-wall, switch places with his teammate, collect the puck from his teammate in order to run the cycle and get the puck to the other side of the zone. While his tape to tape passing is in great shape, his one-timer passing can use some development, but that is the only area where his accuracy can be off from time to time.

There is a possibility that when Raymond comes to North America that he could transition from a winger to centre. Recently, Patrik Bexell of SB Nation’s Habs Eyes On The Prize spoke to Frölunda head coach Roger Rönnberg about Raymond potentially being used as a centre in the NHL. In the below tweet, you can check out Rönnberg’s comments.

I believe that Raymond would thrive as a centre in the NHL. Given his speed, skating and defensive awareness, I can not imagine him struggling as a centre. Also, it was not that long ago when fellow Swede, Elias Pettersson made his way to North America and transitioned to centre. With the North American game slightly different than the European style of play, Raymond could thrive at centre. So, if you are a front office member of a NHL team, who wants to draft a centre, do not ignore Raymond. There is untapped potential for Raymond to be a stud at centre.

Scouting Report: Ethan Cardwell

Photo Credit – Aaron Bell, CHL. Photo Taken By Terry Wilson, OHL Images.

Ethan Cardwell split his first full season in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) between the Saginaw Spirit and the Barrie Colts. The Spirit ended up trading Cardwell to Barrie as part of the Ryan Suzuki (Carolina Hurricanes prospect) trade that happened prior to the OHL trade deadline. The move to Barrie was a good one for Cardwell. In his 26 games played with Barrie, he was a point-per-game forward and helped fill the void that Matej Pekar (Buffalo Sabres prospect) opened up once Pekar was dealt to the Sudbury Wolves.

Cardwell’s Style Of Play

In the offensive zone, Cardwell has proven to be an aggressive forechecker. He uses his tight turn radius to chase after the puck in the offensive zone and his tight turns play a big roll especially when his opponent is an efficient stick-handler or has strong edges. In addition, Cardwell likes to park himself in the middle of the slot. It appears that the Barrie Colts noticed that pretty quickly on and moved him to the middle slot on the power play. It is where Cardwell feels comfortable regardless if he is playing at even strength or up a man. When Cardwell has possession of the puck or a teammate has control of the puck in the low slot, he will often glide to the left of the net and hope for a pass that the goaltender can not stop so that Cardwell can sneak the puck in the back of the net.

When Cardwell is shooting the puck from outside the perimeter, he is more of a point and shoot forward than a triggerman. Cardwell should be looking to further develop his shot and work on aiming the puck towards the top of the shelf. But, as mentioned, that is only applicable for his shot beyond the perimeter. When Cardwell is in the low slot, he is constantly planting himself along the edge of the crease and looking for the best opportunity to snag a rebound and score.

In terms of Cardwell’s passing, his bread and butter is the drop pass. No matter what zone Cardwell is in, he can execute the perfect drop pass. He has the capability of gently placing the puck behind him while he is on the rush. His opponents constantly seem phased by Cardwell’s drop passing. Not only can Cardwell deliver robust drop passes, but his centering pass is on point and he can even float a backhand cross ice pass. While Cardwell is a solid passer, there are some areas where he can improve. For one, his accuracy needs improvement. Cardwell has a tendency to pass the puck without taking the time to identify the teammate that has the most amount of open space/room. He needs to peripherals to identify the best teammate to pass to and not fire at will. Due to this tendency, Cardwell will turn the puck over from time to time.

In addition, he needs to look at his passing in the defensive zone. Aside from his drop passing, which he can execute cleanly in the defensive zone, when he retrieves the puck in his own zone, more than often he will dump the puck. Dumping the puck is extremely useful when it is either the last option due to heavy traffic or looking to shatter your opponents’ momentum. Unfortunately, Cardwell dumps the puck in situations where it does not appear that a dump-out is needed. He needs to work on controlling his instincts and executing zone exit passes to help spark a rush.

In the defensive zone, you will notice quickly that Cardwell’s positioning is slightly off. Given that Cardwell is a centre, you would expect that he will hover all over the defensive zone and apply strong pressure. Instead, Cardwell will often hug the boards and wait for the Colts to breakout from their own zone. If Cardwell can apply the same pressure that he demonstrates in the offensive zone but in his zone, he will warrant more playing time (even more time on the penalty kill) and demonstrate just how explosive he can be in killing the cycle and starting an offensive rush.

In terms of his skating, Cardwell has a short stride, which can limit his speed. This can be improved upon with some power skating instruction. Aside from his stride, his best skating attribute is his ability to create tight turns and button-hooks. As mentioned before, his tight turn radius proves to be pivotal to his aggressive forechecking as he is chasing after the puck. When Cardwell is along the boards and facing a potential body check, he is quite good at reading the timing of the check and spinning to avoid a collision.

Scouting Report: Carson Lambos

Photo Credit: Zachary Peters / Winnipeg ICE

Carson Lambos is coming off of his rookie campaign with the Winnipeg ICE. In 57 games played with the ICE, he registered eight goals and 24 assists. In 2018-2019, he did make five appearances with the ICE (when they were the Kootenay ICE), but was pretty quiet production-wise as he only tallied one point. But, in 2019-2020, he stepped up and proved to be a dominant force on both ends of the ice. The Winnipeg, Manitoba native applies tight pressure in the defensive zone and showcases his crisp tape-to-tape passing along the blue line in the offensive zone.

Over the next year or so, there will be plenty of discussion around Brandt Clarke of the Barrie Colts, Luke Hughes of the USNTDP, Owen Power of the Chicago Steel and Lambos. Many draft analysts and scouts will debate about the placement of these three talented defensemen. All three defensemen could certainly prove to be reliable forces at the NHL level, but each defenseman has their own style of play. In this report, I will focus solely on Lambos, but you can certainly expect a thorough report on Power and Hughes down the road.

Lambos’ Style Of Play

The offensive zone is where Lambos truly thrives. When Lambos is at the blue line in the offensive zone and has possession of the puck, you can expect strong lateral movements and crisp passing. If we focus on his lateral movements for a brief second, one of the qualities that I am fond of is Lambos’ “happy-feet”. For those who are unaware of what I mean by “happy-feet”, it is Josh Tessler lingo for a defenseman who deploys a rapid stride that allows him to go from side to side at a quick pace. With Lambos’ happy-feet, he can quickly skate along the blue line and find teammates to pass to even in traffic. Lambos can use his speed to dodge traffic, find an open lane, pass the puck or take a shot.

Speaking of Lambos’ shot, he has quite the range. From the blue line, he can consistently get his wrist shot on net. Accuracy is no problem for Lambos. In addition, if Lambos can not strike gold from the blue line, he is still efficient at firing a shot that will bounce off the goaltender and create a rebound goal opportunity for his teammates.

Not only is Lambos dominant when passing or shooting the puck in the offensive zone, he also loves to work the cycle. His game is very much like Cale Makar of the Colorado Avalanche. Both defensemen will carry the puck up the side boards, find tight gaps and fire shots to the net. Also, with his passing ability, he can cycle up the wall and find a teammate in the slot or complete a cross ice pass when he finds a teammate with open space.

From a transitional perspective, Lambos does not often deliver the puck from zone-to-zone. He can go zone-to-zone with the puck and complete tight turns to weave around his opponents. When he is skating from zone-to-zone, he will use his stick-handling ability to his advantage to maneuver the puck away from danger, but do not expect flashy stick-handling. Lambos’ stick-handling does not compare with Kent Johnson or Vasily Ponomaryov’s stick-handling, but he gets the job done.

However, he does not seem to opt to go zone-to-zone with the puck very often when looking to move the puck up the ice. Instead, more than often, Lambos will complete a stretch pass or outlet pass to complete a zone exit.

In the defensive zone, he deploys tight pressure at the blue line and in his own slot. Lambos’ gap control is quite good as he can be tough to out-skate especially along the boards. The only challenge with his gap control that needs to be addressed is his ability to shut down top-notch stick-handlers.

When Lambos nets possession of the puck in the defensive zone, occasionally he will complete an ill-advised pass and creates turnovers. Over time, his decision-making will naturally improve and I am not concerned about this. All defensemen in junior hockey make ill-advised passing especially in the defensive zone. It is a learning process.

However, this is not a regular occurrence as Lambos is quite effective at completing behind the back drop passes in the defensive zone and uses pivots/his peripherals to find an open teammate to deliver the puck to when he is facing tighter pressure. His ability to complete behind the back drop passes in the defensive zone is also a sign that his memory is strong. In order to be an efficient NHL player, memory is a characteristic that is crucial. If you can remember the placement of each player on the ice, your ability to make sleek passes in traffic is much greater.

Last but not least, let’s address his skating ability. Lambos has a wide stride and good speed, but there are some areas of improvement that would be good to address, but are not critical. As Scott Wheeler of The Athletic mentioned in a February post, at times, Lambos will appear to put a decent amount of pressure on his skate. This happens mainly when Lambos is completing crossovers or utilizing his edges. But, there are plenty of skaters that have heavier feet and get the job done.

Scouting Report: Cameron Whynot

Photo Credit – Halifax Mooseheads

Cameron Whynot just finished his rookie QMJHL season with the Halifax Mooseheads. It was a solid campaign for the left-handed defenseman. In 57 games played, Whynot tallied nine points (two goals and seven assists). While the point totals might seem low when you compare his point totals against other QMJHL defensemen, who are 2021 NHL Draft eligible, we need to keep in mind that Whynot is still developing and he is not a natural offensive defenseman.

Player Profile

Whynot’s Style Of Play

As mentioned above, Whynot is not an offensive defenseman, but that is not a knock against him. The Kentville, Nova Scotia native has strong stay-at-home defensive tendencies, but he is developing an offensive game. Naturally, when you hear “stay-at-home defenseman”, you immediately visualize a defenseman who positions himself close to his goaltender and that is exactly where Whynot likes to position himself. He provides excellent pressure around the crease and behind the net. Whynot will hover along the red line and is constantly keeping the puck in his sights. If an opponent is traveling along the boards behind the Mooseheads net, you can bet on Whynot deploying tight gap control and looking for the exact moment to pounce. He is consistently able to poke-check or body-check his opponents for the puck and push the puck along the boards to get it out of danger.

When Whynot has space after retrieving the puck, he will opt to pass. Yet, passing is an area in his game where he needs to work on accuracy. By my rough estimations, 40% of the time, Whynot struggles to complete his zone exit/breakout pass. Occasionally, Whynot will avoid completing a breakout pass till he skates up to the blue line. When he sees an opponent applying tight pressure, instead of skating against the traffic and potentially giving up the puck, he will complete a button-hook and pass behind him to attempt to get the puck up the ice. If Whynot button-hooks and passes behind him, he is far more accurate then if he were to make a pass in the defensive zone with his opponents applying light pressure.

In the offensive zone, Whynot is still getting his feet wet. Last season, it was evident that Whynot wanted to be more involved in the offensive zone, but if a defenseman were to jump into the cycle, he would let his defensive partner handle those responsibilities. Yet, there were times, especially later on in the season in which Whynot would control the cycle and pinch. In addition, Whynot still has some work to do with his shot from the point. Similar to his passing, his shooting accuracy could use some improvement. While there are areas of improvement in the offensive zone, Whynot is still young and will have plenty of time in the QMJHL to further his offensive skill-set.

Aside from getting involved in the offensive cycle and taking shots from the point, he is efficient at keeping the puck in the offensive zone when he is positioned along the blue line. If his opponent is trying to burst through the seams and create a breakout, Whynot more often than not will challenge the attacker and shut them down.

If Whynot has possession of the puck in the neutral zone, he will often look to skate into the offensive zone along the half-wall. When he is across the blue line, he will often look to dump the puck and let his teammates chase after the loose puck.

When it comes to Whynot’s skating, he constantly deploys a silky smooth stride and is extremely mobile. His edge-work and crossovers are in good shape. Whynot’s speed is quite strong and he will often look to utilize his speed in the defensive zone when he spots a loose puck. In the offensive zone, when pinching, you can expect Whynot to execute a spin move to allow the defenseman to have more space.

Scouting Report: Aatu Räty

Photo Credit – Oulun Kärpät / Iikka Pirttikoski

Aatu Räty is a 2021 NHL Draft eligible prospect, who hails from Oulunsalo, Finland. Hockey is in his DNA. His father, Tuomo Räty, previously coached the Kärpät U16 club and his brother Aku Räty is an Arizona Coyotes prospect.

Räty has played in the Kärpät system throughout his youth and made his Liiga debut in 2019-2020. He played the majority of the season at the U20 level, but did appear in 12 Liiga games and tallied four points.

Räty was part of the Finnish World Junior Championship roster at the 2020 IIHF World Juniors. He was featured in all seven World Junior games and tallied three points (two goals and one assist). One of his goals at the World Juniors was a highlight-reel goal in which he scored a wrap-around goal against Slovakia.

This past season, Räty spent the majority of his time playing for Kärpät in Liiga play. In 35 games played, he recorded six points (three goals and three assists). He also spent eight games playing U20 hockey for Kärpät, in which he tallied three goals and four assists. While playing for the U20 club, he played alongside a few fellow 2021 NHL Draft eligibles including Ville Koivunen and Samu Tuomaala.

Räty’s Style Of Play

Räty is a menace in the offensive zone. He controls the cycle quite well. If there is a decent amount of traffic in front of Räty, he will opt to make tight turns/pivots to fool his opponents and give himself some more space. When Räty is completing a turn, you can expect his turn radius to be pretty tight. This allows him to dance around his opponent without error.

In addition, Räty has an accurate shot and can deliver throughout the offensive zone. He has a heavy slap shot, with which he can drain shots from the blue line. When he is featured on the power play, he can often be seen along the half wall and will often execute wrist shots once he has a clear opening to the net. Also, his shot will often pave the way for rebound goals. Given how accurate Räty is with his shot, if he feels that he is too far out, but he sees a teammate by the crease, he will deliver a wrist or slap shot to the goaltender’s pads and more than often that will lead to a rebound.

When he is looking to complete a pass, Räty will often utilize a drop pass when he is controlling the cycle, but he will also deliver crisp tape-to-tape slot passing.

Räty seems to always look for the optimal forecheck and puts a tremendous amount of pressure on his opponents, but do not expect Räty to deliver a booming hit. He will not use his body to complete a body-check nor a hip-check. While he is aggressive, Räty will consistently look to swipe the puck away with a poke-check.

When Räty is in transition, he often will not gain possession of the puck until his defensemen have completed a zone exit. When he has possession of the puck in the neutral zone, he will often opt to deliver a zone entry pass rather than carry the puck into the offensive zone himself.

In the defensive zone, he will often park himself in front of his net and look to assert dominance over the forward who is parking himself in the slot. When Räty is not in front of his net, you can often find him out on patrol. Typically, Räty is not a big back-checker, instead he sits back in a “support” or an “insurance” type role. Räty is there to ensure that if his teammate and his opponent get tangled up and loose sight of the puck then he will be able to jump on the puck to secure it.

Let’s move to skating. Räty is fantastic with his crossovers. As I mentioned above, given Räty’s tight turn radius, he can execute robust crossovers to help propel his stride.

Aside from his crossovers, when you watch Räty’s game tape closely, you will see that he has a bit of a heavy foot. Due to his heavy foot, Räty’s speed and edges are not always sound. The good thing is that he is still developing and growing as a hockey player. There is plenty of time for Räty to further develop his skating. Plus, keep in mind that a lot of prospects at 17/18 years of age need improvement with their skating ability.
