My impressions from watching last nights game (and other this season):
  • Every time Scheifele gets on the ice, his skating seems to improve. His top speed is much better, and he's starting to look a lot stronger on his skates. Doesn't get pushed around anywhere near as much as last year
  • His head is constantly on a swivel, looking for a play. That said, he's not afraid to shoot - his one timers are really nice, as evidenced by his goal last night - nice saucer pass from O'Conner with Schiefele sneaking in from the right side to bury it.
  • Hawerchuk is not afraid to use him in any situation - logged a fair amount of PK time last night, as well as PP time.
  • Isn't shying away from physical play, as he occasionally did last year

Always dangerous when he's on the ice, and he's getting coverage that's like a wet blanket. His PPG stat with this type of coverage is very good.
