Manley, Rich - LW - Burnaby

Rich Manley / Burnaby Express BCHL
LW-L / 6-4.75, 225 / 22-Dec-1989

Skating: 55 / Skill: 55 / Sense: 40 / Compete: 50 / Tough: 55

Strengths: Huge. Improved tremendously this season. Decent skater for his size.

Weaknesses: Raw. Overall hockey sense is questionable.

Very intriguing combination of size and skating. Good energy and competes. Good physical effort, but still trying to figure out how to be effective with the body. Decent hands. Surprising quickness and speed for a player this size.

Summary: Wish I had been able to see more of this player. But have a good gut feeling about this player based on the handful of viewings.

Target/Want: Hard to figure where to target him. Would like to steal with a middle rounder, but he could go surprisingly high.
