SCOUTING REPORT:

DANUALT HAS BECOME A PLAYER THAT IS CALLED UPON IN EVERY SITUATION.  HE HAS GOOD SPEED AND CAN CHANGE A GAME WITH HIS ENERGY AND EMOTION.  HE’S AN AGGRESIVE FORECHECKER AND FINISHES EVERY CHECK HARD. 

HE COMPETES HARD IN ALL THREE ZONES, SEES THE ICE VERY WELL AND IS AN EFFECTIVE PASSER. HE CAN BE A STREAKY SCORER BUT DID DISPLAY CONSISTENT PRODUCTION THIS SEASON. 

HE’S A VERY VERSATILE PLAYER WITH A TREMENDOUS WORK ETHIC AND EXCELS ON THE PK. LEADERSHIP QUALITIES OOZE OUT OF HIM AND IS CURRENTLY THE CAPTAIN OF HIS VICTORIAVILLE TEAM. (WAS CAPTAIN ON PREVIOUS TEAM AS WELL)

DANUALT NEEDS TO CONTINUE TO DEVELOP PHYSICALLY IN ORDER TO GET TO THE NEXT LEVEL. HE OCCASIONALLY GETS PUSHED OFF THE PUCK BY BIGGER PLAYERS ALONG THE BOARDS.  

HE HAS BEEN DESCRIBED AS THE MOST PASSIONATE KID ON THE TEAM AND IF A TEAM IS LOOKING FOR INTANGIBLES, THIS KID HAS GOT THEM.

HIS PASSION AND DRIVE ALONE SHOULD PUSH HIM TO BECOME A PRO.

NHL POTENTIAL:

BOTTOM SIX ROLE PLAYER

PLAYER COMPARISON:

MAX TALBOT
