Schultz, Justin - D - Westside

Justin Schultz / Westside Warriors BCHL
D-R / 6-0.75, 163 / 07-Jun-1990

Skating: 70 / Skill: 60 / Sense: 55 / Compete: 45 / Tough: 25

Strengths: Excellent skater. Big time shot from the point.

Weaknesses: Soft - no physical presence. Slight build and will need to bulk up. Not aggressive with the puck.

Outstanding skater with a smooth stride and good pivots. Doesn't use his speed. Good asset on the PP - loves to shoot the puck and can his shot on net consistently. Shot is hard and he gets it away quickly. Good overall hockey sense, but doesn't seem to move or carry the puck real well. Decent decisions in defensive zone, but just does not even try to use his body.

Summary: Lacks some zip in his game. With all that skating and puck skill, I'd like him a lot more if he had more confidence or aggressiveness offensively.

Target/Want: Wouldn't consider until 3rd. Some teams seem to have a very high interest in this player. Probably will go in the 2nd round.
