Dale Hunt / Prince George Cougars WHL
RW-R / 6-0, 197 / 04-Jan-1990
Skating: 35 / Skill: 55 / Sense: 55 / Compete: 40 / Tough: 40
Strengths: Very good hands and can shoot the puck. Good strength.
Weaknesses: Skating needs a lot of work. Has underachieved.
Former Bantam star has struggled at the major junior level. Has a very good shooting touch, and has good offensive instincts. Does not create much - more of a finisher. Skating really hurts his effectiveness. Lumbering stride, poor acceleration and not much speed.
Summary: Capable of a lot more than he's shown, but needs to adjust his style of play. If he can learn to be more of a crease-crasher he can salvage his major junior career yet.
Target/Want: Might be worth a 4th or 5th round pick. You draft him hoping he finally figures it out and has a break through season next year.
