Grant, Derek - LW - Langley

Derek Grant / Langley Chiefs BCHL
LW-L / 6-3, 190 / 20-Apr-1990

Skating: 55 / Skill: 60 / Sense: 50 / Compete: 55 / Tough: 30

Strengths: Very good hands around the net. Good straight line speed. Hard to knock off the puck.

Weaknesses: Does not use his size. Still somewhat raw. Not a lot of agility.

Lanky winger has an intriguing combination of size and skill. Steady improvement this season. Plays a simple game, going straight to the net and has a nice scoring touch in close. Particularly good at deflections and jumping on rebounds. Strong on the puck.

Summary: Have a feeling several teams have slotted him as a 3rd rounder and he could sneak into the 2nd.

Target/Want: Would like this player more if he showed some toughness or was more physical. Likely to go before my target, which would be in the 4th.
