Plz feel free to correct any info regarding size, position etc.

I'm looking for strengths/weaknesses/potential even player comparaisons.
Wilson - Like a pit bull, very strong and sturdy in the physical game, has a big shot and will jump into the play offensively every once in a while. Unfortunately his foot speed isn't very good and he gets caught pinching in for the big hit too much. He shows really well in that box that St.Mikes plays their home games in, but Wilson looks shady and slow on bigger ice surfaces.

Lawrence - Big guy, but doesn't play a physical style. Decent skater and good on the faceoffs, always seems like a sloppy stickhandler when I see him.

Blunden - High upside as a physical checker, his offense could allow him to be a top two line player, but his size, skating and aggressiveness make him a safe NHL prospect, because he'll be a useful player in some capacity. His willingness to drive the front of the net stands out aswell.
