Possler, Gustav – LW – MODO (SEL) – 5’11” 181
Possler is a quick sniper who moved up and down between MODO’s U20 squad and their men’s team. He has a real nose for the net, and is a threat to score from the slot on a consistent basis. The first thing you notice about Possler’s game is his offensive abilities. He is very quick off the rush and shows good poise with the puck on his stick. He has above average stick handling abilities, and while he may not overwhelm any defender with his hands, he is able to protect the puck quite well and keep control of it easily as he moves with speed. Possler’s best asset is his shooting ability. He has a very good release to his shots, and is also able to place them quite accurately. He is not afraid to crash the net, and show some toughness and be willing to mix it up with opposing defensemen. The weakness to Possler’s game is his defensive abilities. There are times when he floats around the ice without the puck, and will need to really improve on playing with more intensity in his own end. He certainly has the offensive tools to be a successful pro, but if he cannot be trusted by his coaches in the defensive zone, he will not have the opportunity to show off his skills in the offensive zone.
Quotable: “A player we liked last season who fell off the radar a bit this year. Our scout Charles An had him high on his list last season. He really impressed me last year at the U18 in the Czech Republic.” - Mark Edwards
