He had 3 fights last year. Looks like he lost them all.

Another prospect that really flew under the radar despite an impressive season, Sundher is a guy that projects to be a good professional player. He’s pretty creative and was one of the only offensive catalysts on a weak Bruins team this year. He also has some grit in his game, and isn’t afraid of the dirty areas on the ice.

Strengths: Good straight line speed. Competes and will throw the body around. Decent hands.

Weaknesses: Turning and stop/starts aren't real good. Doesn't handle the puck or make plays at speed very well.

Ranked 38th on this list by premiumscouting.com

The first thing you notice when you watch Sundher is his skating, he bursts out of the gate with great top speeds and the agility to make quick moves on a dime. He has good vision and will often pull up on the sideboards to look for open teammates. He can weave in and out of traffic well and is elusive when moving. His shot is average, although he was still was able to get it past WHL goalies but it certainly doesn’t look like it will translate well to the pros. Sundher reads the play well in all zones, and will support his defense in the defensive zone. He can take bad penalties, be it from getting too chippy in the corners or from frustration. His effort level can be on and off, and it’s apparent because Sundher is so tenacious when he’s on.

Looks like a really solid 3rd round selection. The impression given in his interview that they seemed intent on taking him puts a good light on the pick.

I like the pick, but he's supposed to be wildly inconsistent, which I don't like. Otherwise, everything I've heard about him I love.

C-L / 5-11.75, 192 / 18-Jan-92

Skating: 65 / Skill: 60 / Sense: 55 / Compete: 60 / Toughness: 55

Strengths: Good straight line speed. Competes and will throw the body around. Decent hands.


Weaknesses: Turning and stop/starts aren't real good. Doesn't handle the puck or make plays at speed very well.


--

This guy has some pretty nice top speed, but he struggles to use it. Has a knack for carrying the puck end-to-end, but too often those rushes end up with him circling behind the net and not generating much of a scoring chance. Good hands - nice stickhandler and has a decent shot - but only when he's slowed down.

Grades out as a 75 on pure speed, but turning and agility drop the overall skating grade. Is a little bit of a Todd Marchant kind of player who can beat defensemen but not so much goaltenders. That said, he does have some shooting touch, and can pick up garbage goals and finish chances in close.

Lots of energy and likes to play physical. Probably doesn't have the size to be that type of player in the NHL, but at least you have to give him credit for some grit, which is a must have for players of all sizes to be successful NHLers. But I have seen him give up the puck at times to avoid being hit, and that's a bit of a red flag.
