Mini-scouting report time. I've just been watching Hertl's Czech Extraliga game. Only two periods so far, but here are my thoughts:
-The first thing that jumps out at me are elite puck-protection skills. Everywhere on the ice. Along the boards, in the slot. He's just very strong on the puck. He's got great size and strength and he is very physically dominant. He mostly doesn't go out of the way to hit, but he certainly can. Likes to drive the net. He also parks himself right in front of the goaltender on the PP.
-His skating does need work.
-He's played a lot of shifts against David Krejci, I've noticed.
-His lineys keep passing into his skates. Dunno if that's just this game or if it's a general trend, but he's not getting much help from what I've seen.
-He's currently playing as RW.
Anyway, if anything exciting happens in the third, I'll holler.
