*NOTE*: To any moderator, please move this thread to the correct section. I wasn't sure and the 'Prospect' seemed the most logical at the time.
I've gone years just thinking which NHL player I play like. I have such a burning love for hockey that thinking about comparisons just makes me happy and excited (weird, right?). Whenever I think of a player that I have similar qualities to, I then later see many things I don't have similar so I never have a straight answer. I'll describe my style and personality and hopefully you all can help me out! This is just for fun so don't be mean, ha ha.
- I'm very calm. I'm very down to earth and don't cause problems or drama.
- Never fight, but not afraid to get a bit chippy along the boards/in front of net/general chirping.
- Played FWD for many years (center and wing), but switched to defense my junior year in high school because of depth and need of defenseman. I still played forward a bit my junior/senior year because my coach said he need people "who can score" so I'm very offensively capable, but playing defensively is my main objective.
-Broke my high school record for highest plus/minus in school history (all 4 years), with a single-season record of +17 my senior year (this is when I had top-defensive pair duty).
-My senior stats were 23GP, 4G, 20A, +17 (1G was on defense, 3G's were when he put me up on forward for a couple games).
-Played some PP, but played on the PK 90% of the time. My highlight was successfully killing four 5-on-3 PK's in one period in the state semi-finals.
-I have a great shot (not to sound cocky). It's pretty fast, but its more accurate than fast which is kind of opposite of NHLers. My friends nicknamed me "Snipey" because I would always snipe goalies and go top cheddar.
-I'm not that tall or that heavy. I'm 5'9'', 170. I was never physically dominant, I threw hits, but mostly hip checks because of my height I would always be the one on the ice after a normal open ice hit. I can dodge hits and I never put myself in the position to get hit. Don't get me wrong, I'll take a hit to make a play, just in general I don't get hit too often.
If anyone can make a good comparison, it'd make my day!
P.S. I like to think of myself Jordan Staal-like when it comes to defense responsibility.
If you have a great shot, how do u only get 4 goals?
