Joel Lowry

Greetings Kings fans!

Just wanted to pass along some observations about Joel Lowry from last night's Cornell/Yale game.

Lowry was impressive, he notched a pair of goals in Cornell's 6-2 win at Yale. He played on a terrific line with senior Sean Collins (CBJ) and fellow freshman John McCarron that really wreaked havoc on Yale for much of the night.

What I liked most about watching Lowry was his ability to follow plays and be in the right position to make the best possible plays. I like the fact that he competes and doesn't mind getting his nose dirty going after loose pucks and getting positioning around the net. He's got size (but then again so does much of Cornell) and skates well for a 6'3" kid. I wouldn't say he's a speed demon though. He threw a couple of nice checks in the game. His stick-handling was very good and it should continue to get better as he develops and gets more comfortable with the speed of the college game.

Anyway, that's it in a nutshell. Please feel free to comment.
