Darnell Nurse Scouting Report
handles the puck well and is a decent passer, albeit can be inconsistent as a distributor .. passes could be more crisp and on the tape .. also makes peculiar puckmoving decisions at times,
forcing pucks into coverage or trying to go solo through an entire team .. tends to over-extend himself and attempts to do too much with the puck ..
his inconsistent decision making has raised questions about his hockey sense – an area scouts will be monitoring closely as the season advances .. inconsistently aggressive – will finish checks with vigour at times, only to let up the next time out
.. increasing his physical intensity and reliability will add another dimension to his game ..
not afraid to drop the gloves, albeit is not an accomplished fighter
.. must continue to upgrade his strength and add mass to a slight, rangy frame .. a character player with leadership abilities as he works hard off the ice .. deserves credit for improving his offensive game yet his value at the next level will be in his ability to keep things simple, play with a competitive streak, while maintaining his defensive assignments.
Sounds like Luke Schenn to me.
