Considering I played in Surrey for three years with him and know his family quite well, I should add a few comments here.
For a while it looked as if Prabh's talent was going by the wayside but after a christmas break and a talk from his older brother he really stepped it up and had a phenomenal end to the year, and along with Bud Holloway was the top forward on the Thunderbirds.
He is fast, two steps and he's full speed, much like a Mason Raymond kind of fast, but he's stocky. He isn't tiny, his height might not be exactly right but he isn't "small" by any means.
If I had to throw out one severe deficiency in his game is that he doesn't shoot the puck. I think he had 24 assists before he even scored this season, and it's not because he doesn't have a good shot, he just doesn't shoot enough. He needs to become a bit more selfish with the puck and work on his consistency and we could potentially have a player.
