Hunter Shinkaruk, Medicine Hat Tigers
Shinkaruk is one of the most dynamically skilled players available in this year’s NHL Entry Draft. He is like a magician with the puck, and does everything at such a high pace that opponents have a difficult time containing him in the offensive zone. Shinkaruk scores highlight reel goals on a regular basis, which are often the results of his hands, speed and aggressive mentality. He is so fast and so agile out on this ice, that his skating abilities really allow him to be the dominant player that he is now. He has also shown the ability to dish the puck effectively and use his teammates to create good scoring chances. As a captain for Medicine Hat, he consistently brings his “A” game and sets an example for his teammates, and has certainly lived up to the hype this season. Shinkaruk just needs to keep developing his strength on his feet and awareness without the puck in his own zone to be a more effective player.
