My update on Michael Mersch of Wisconsin. Badgers won 3-2, Mersch had the game-tying 2nd goal for Wisc.

I'm still not sold on his hands or feet, but Mersch had a better showing tonight. His positioning was better and seemed more confident skating. His goal was just working to get to the right area and putting in a rebound from a broken play. However, he made few bad passes and still lost the puck by letting sticks under his. The coach trusts him, he was on the ice in the last minute protecting a one goal lead.

He'll never be a playmaker or a sniper, but physicality and tenacity are his strong points. He was involved in some light after the whistle stuff. The closest comparison on the current Kings team would be Da-wight King. At this point I'm not sure how far he'll make it. He might do well on a team with structure like the Kings.
