C Tyler Soy - Victoria Royals, WHL (2015 Draft)

I've seen him mentioned as a possible 1rd 15' draft pick, but has not had a good start this year, so it could hurt his stock, what do people think of him?

What's his game?

Good two-way centre. Not the biggest guy but very smart. Decent scoring tools. A little early to call him a 1st rounder or anything else as he's still settling into the league.

So we are to give high Bantam picks a pass early in the season, I understand that some might need to settle, it's just that others are off to good starts.

i have not seen him yet this year but I will say that just because others have better starts they could be in different situations with the team such as more playing time, better linemates or just the plain fact that sometimes players need a little more time compared to other players to adjust, not that they are worse because half the time they surpass the players who were doing better.

You cant hold all prospects to the same standard as Mathew Barzal. It is extremely rare for 16's to be PPG players. A good season fro Soy would be 25 points IMO

Well you can hold them to a high/er standard if they are a projected 1rd pick in the 15' NHL draft, which Soy is.

Realistically, Soy could be considered a 1st round prospect by some after his midget season. But anyone placing him there knows fully that it is an extremely preliminary ranking.

Soy is a very good player for his age. If he develops like many people anticipate him to then he could be a first rounder. Right now he isn't producing on the scoresheet, but his game is a lot more than goals and assists. I haven't seen him play this year but I'm sure he is contributing in other ways.

A lot of mistakes can be made by critisizing young players too harshly early in their careers. I am not going on the record and saying he will be a 1st rounder, but I will say that we shouldn't label players that have played under 20 games.

I've seen Soy lots this year. You see glimpses of his skill and hockey IQ. But he is really over matched this year. He plays limited minutes because he is small and not nearly strong enough. He plays very tentatively and with little confidence. The jury is out on the kid for now.

Well you are certainly saying that Barzal will be a top pick in the 15' draft, isn't it too early to say that about him as well, or are you using a different set of rules with him.

Yes I am. Barzal is an exceptional talent. A monkey could figure out he's a special hockey player. Widely regarded as one of the best in his age group.

Where has anyone gone on record saying Soy is a sure fire 1st rounder? You are judging him by an unfair standard. He's a 16 year-old hockey player with a lot of potential. Still adjusting to the junior game.

Not to be rude, but have you seen Soy play live, or are you judging him based on others expectations. As someone that's seen him multiple times I am not worried one bit about his start. I don't know anyone that expected him to come in and be a PPG player.

Soy's game is based on his two-way play, he plays on the third line with the rare occasion of powerplay time. He's efficient and sneaky, still adjusting and make little mistakes with the puck, but defensively i've come away nothing but impressed for this kid. I think he will be a great two-way foward for the 2015 draft.
