Wudrick, Geordie - LW - Swift Current

Geordie Wudrick / Swift Current WHL
LW-L / 6-2.75, 204 / 09-Apr-1990

Skating: 60 / Skill: 40 / Sense: 50 / Compete: 55 / Tough: 60

Strengths: Decent skater for his size. Good touch around the net. Competes and loves to play physical.

Weaknesses: Inconsistent and very streaky. Not much of a puckhandler.

At his best when he keeps it simple, going to the net and battling along the boards. Very good straight line speed and balance, but not much agility or quickness. Can be a fierce physical force when he's going out there and hitting everything in sight, but needs to bring that intensity every night. Impressive in Top Prospects Game and has a specialized game that should translate well to being an NHL winger.

Summary: Might actually make for a better pro than a junior player, with more skilled linemates to complement his style.

Target/Want: Would take in the middle of the 2nd round.
