Thanks for the vid feebs.
To anyone who watched the Wolves this year, how does Schroeder handle contact?
From the footage, his size didn't seem to be much of an issue in the offensive zone as he has good transitional skating, is very evasive in the slot, has shifty stick-work to recover pucks and is tenacious in the corners. But that was a highlight package...
Because of his size, does he get rocked any harder than others by big hits? Also, do other teams try to key-in on him with more contact/clutching/grabbing, and if so, how does that affect his game? The highlight package showed some solid back-checks and him stripping pucks off forwards. Is this common? How often does he get out-muscled on d-zone coverage? Last question, what about his game keeps him from being productive on the wing?
Really, really like what I saw of him from that highlight package along with what some of you have been reporting all season.
