Schumacher is big, strong on his skates, big, really good hands for a big guy, big, has a knack for being in the right spot (usually in front of the net) and oh ya, hes big... he looks about 6'5, 230.. almost impossible to move. Hes doing a great job at adjusting to the North American game, and likes to be the trailer on the rush, and is often awarded.

Weakness: His speed needs some work, and he doesn't tend to use his shot enough to his advantage. Kind of awkward when he throws a hit also, seems to lunge at players and end up falling down after his hit.

Overall, I would be shocked if he came back next year as a 19 year old and was not playing in the AHL... not sure what the farm system is like in Manchester, if he could easily take a spot, but he looks almost AHL ready now.
