A single game (Dec 2nd vs. Miss.) scouting report from Gus Katsaros of McKeens Hockey on Chris Tierney. Tierney's been playing at a high level for the past few weeks and if anyone wants to watch him, the Knights will be playing the Ice Dogs today at 4pm on the NHL Network.
Chris Tierney C – (2012) San Jose 2nd 55 overall
Sharks second rounder was patient with the puck while maintaining urgency and the pace required at this level .. good puck protection skills along the boards, strong core strength as he plants and twists his torso to move pucks away from oncoming defenders .. a first penalty-killing pairing forward .. features a good active stick, instinctively getting his stick and body into passing lanes and taking away immediate space .. effective as a high PK forward .. wide skating base, horse shoe stride .. speed is adequate when considering the short length of his stride .. showed how he processes the game and his skill level without his stick, banking a beautiful pass off his foot while tied up by a defenseman with his stick tangled .. performed a really high end skilled move with quick thinking to get the puck to an open man advancing the play .. went straight to the net to pick up a rebound from anAndersonshot to score the 3-1 goal .. one of the better forwards this game.
