Fun fact is that their fathers both belonged to Minnesota North stars at the same time in the mid 80īs. Biggs only played 1 game dough.

I was looking through their stats and offensively (at the same age) they dont look so far apart. And seeing as Biggs shots right and Ashton is a leftie it would be fun if they could end up on the same line either for the Marlies in the end of this season or next to see if they can get some bone crushing chemistry.
Biggs is a better skater. For a big man he's pretty fast and light on his feet. He has a pro body -- thick and muscled.

Ashton not as fast or strong. Biggs is also the better fighter. Ashton does use his size to protect the puck better in the corners.

Overall Biggs is the more powerful and explosive of the two. Neither have elite skill and both must play a big man's game to realize their potential.
