Solid player. Works harder than anyone and has a pro future just because of his mindset and work ethic. The Blades arrived home from Calgary on Thursday morning at 7AM. They had an optional skate that afternoon. Only 5 players showed up for the practice. Guess who was the first one there and the last one to leave?
It was Dietz.
He spoke to the media before going on the ice and basically said that it was just another day to grow, improve and get better.
The kid is mature beyond his years. His offensive game has grown leaps and bounds too. He scored two goals in a game last week. One was a wiring wrist shot from the top of the circles, bar-down, beat the goalie clean. A very impressive shot, while moving no less. His second was a shorthanded breakaway goal after he pinched up, stole the puck at his own blueline and finished on the backhand.
Habs definitely have a kid with some NHL future here.
I havent been able to get many viewing of Dietz for Saskatoon this yea. But I have been watching alot of "On The Edge" with the Blades this year and have come away overly impressed with Dietz as a player and a vocal leader, A guy you want in you're dressing room.
