Healthy Winkler becoming offensive weapon for Colorado College


Amidst a seesaw battle with Yale last weekend, Colorado College’s Scott Winkler sent Bulldog winger Anthony Day crumbling to the ice with a solid body check into the left corner boards at the World Arena. Instantaneously, Winkler set his sights on another Yale forward behind the Tigers net as he fiercely fought for possession of the puck in the defensive zone.



To some this would seem like just another ordinary play for a center listed at 6'3” who weighs in at 217 pounds. For Colorado College’s largest player and the Dallas Stars 2008 third round draft choice, however, this kind of physicality has not been common place over the last three seasons, nor has his career-high 10 goals this season.… read more

Winkler plays center right? I wonder if he's any good at faceoffs.

The CC stats page doesn't say, unfortunately.

Well I just found a play by play sheet for CC vs MTU. Only saw periods 2 and 3. But Winkler won 7 out of 10 faceoffs in those 2 periods. Don't know anything about the teams or when the game was even played.

Seems like he might be a decent 4th line center one day. Not expecting it, though.

Well, IIRC GLU was raving about him before saying he was much better than the rest of us thought he was. I think it was Winkler.

Yeah, it was him. That doesn't mean I'll be right in the end, but I always saw the frame, drive, and skill to be a legit prospect if he just got healthy and consistent. Mark and I pretty much agreed on this whenever we talked. Still, you always have to take care with college seniors as their stats usually are inflated.

At the same time it's hard to consider him a true college senior, I bet he's played less games than some juniors seeing as how he's been an absolute mess since we drafted him.
