The Pro Hockey Group
Please see our Scouting Report FAQ for detailed descriptions of the scouting process
Note: Reports prior to Sept 2023 were originally graded out of ten, and also included additional categories that have been merged into the current categories.
This likely results in the overall ratings prior to 2023 being decreased in comparison to reports since Sept 2023.

For an `Apples to Apples` comparison between players, we recommend only comparing reports before, or after, Sept 2023.
Results will average out accordingly as more data is accumulated.

Arguably the most valuable defenceman on the Hurricanes roster. Primary ice comes at ES and PK. Matches up against top line opponents at home and on the road. Involved. Gaps up in the neutral zone.

His execution with the puck has come a long way from early in his career. Doesn't have a ton of deception. Makes a solid first pass. Has the ability to escape pressure and lead the rush on his own. In (22/23) he was afforded more of a role on the PP and produced 4G-3A. Shoots the puck hard and accurately from range. Veteran '2-way D'.

L3
Useful player in the middle of the lineup. Very responsible defensively - ability to break up plays with active stick and anticipation - among first to be called upon in shorthanded situations Utilized heavily in Neutral Zone face-off situations as his first-step allows him to get inside position on defenders to track and retrieve 50/50 pucks Initiates contact. Battles. Provides secondary scoring. Consistently averages around 14:00 TOI. Deployed at ES and PK. Oct. 24, 2023Oct. 26, 2023

Coming off his most productive season, offensively, in (22/23) - 18G-27A Has added more strength to his frame as he has matured and it has resulted in more impact in all areas of the game. Physically more capable to take a bump and make a play. More willing to take pucks to the cage. '2-way' forward who provides better than secondary offense and has potential to approach 60 points on his current trajectory. Defensive zone starts have been resulting in mixed results. Has struggled in face-off dot to start the season (45%). Averaging 16:00 TOI - 12:36 ES - 3:10 PP - rarely used on the PK. Equal parts shooter / distributor. Only 23 years young.

Doesn't shy away from the hard areas /along the boards and between the dots / around the crease in the offensive zone.

L3
Selected in the second round (42nd) in 2018. Has proven he can contribute offensively at the college level (Harvard), in the SHL (Vaxjo), and the AHL (Chicago Wolves), but offense has been slower to arrive at the NHL level. Moves well. Can push the play in transition / gain the edge on zone entries. It's easy to see he has better than average puck touch and vision in the offensive zone. Unfortunately for him, the Hurricanes are a deep team and he is mostly being used in a depth role. Having said that, he has been deployed more on the PP in recent games - including 4:16 versus Colorado on October 21st. Overall, he is averaging 10:46 TOI - 8:57 ES - 0:59 PP - 0:49 PK - through the first seven games of (23/24). Competes. Has good puck touch. Can play fast. Has the hockey sense to be used in a variety of roles. Needs to improve in the face-off circle (46%). Oct. 24, 2023Oct. 26, 2023

Long time Hurricane. Captain of the team. Leads by example. Leans 3F at this stage of his career. Has never been a burner, but he keeps up to the pace of the NHL game by positioning himself appropriately in all three zones. Responsible. Takes the majority of the key face-offs. Took an incredible 1474 draws in (22/23) and won 55.70% of them. Plays a heavy / physical game. Credited with 155 hits last season. Provides better than secondary offense. Averaging 16:16 TOI - 13:16 ES - 0:13 PP - 2:46 PK Big body. Hard to move off the puck along the wall and out front the net. Oct. 24, 2023Oct. 26, 2023
Dmitry OrlovLogo of the Carolina HurricanesRD322 of 2

P2
His stats, to start the season, are uneven but they don't tell the entire story. His defensive detail, locking on his man in his zone for example, has been reliable but breakdowns around him have led to pucks in the back of Carolina's net. He hasn't had a ton of puck luck. The team is rotating trying to find a partner to compliment his style of play. Veteran 'D'. Stocky / Strong. Physical. Capable on the power-play. Average plus on the PK. Sneaks up on opponents, in transition, aggressively gapping up in the neutral zone. Averaging 17:43 TOI to start (23/24) 13:59 ES - 3:17 PP - 0:26 PK - 8 Hits - 6 Shot Blocks - 7GPOct. 24, 2023Oct. 26, 2023

Reliable depth defender. Solid pace. High end compete. Involved. Doesn't shy away from contact or battles. Mobile. When pucks are dumped into his area his pivot / continuation pace is sound. Arrives ahead of forecheck more often than not. Contributes some depth offense but it's not his element. A '2-way D' who averages 11:44 TOI - 10:15 ES - 1:28 PKOct. 24, 2023Oct. 26, 2023

1B
Potentially Carolina's goalie of the future. Relatively young for NHL standards. Has split time between the AHL and NHL. When thrust into action at the NHL level he has provided steady results overall. Somewhat stationary look to his game. Almost robotic with his tracking and positioning in the crease. Relies heavily squaring up to the play while remaining in the blue paint. Surprises, at times, with how quick he can move and recover. Other times he looks like he has misjudged the speed of the play in front of him and doesn't get set in time ... resulting in goals from mid-range ... especially half way up his pads on each side. Work in progress. Competes. Focused. Needs miles. Size is an asset.Oct. 24, 2023Oct. 26, 2023

Reliable #2A who can take the net for stretches if required. When he plays over twenty games, per season, he is yet to have a losing record Injuries have held him back for stretches over his career Butterfly goalie. Not massive in the net. Better than average feet. In (22/23) he ranked he posted a 2.23 GAA and .910 save % Solid numbers for an NHL back-up. Trustworthy in the role. Oct. 24, 2023Oct. 26, 2023

Has struggled, off and on, with injuries over the past several seasons that have limited the volume of games he has played. Big body. Takes up a ton of net. Butterfly / Positional style. Not exceedingly athletic. Relies on crease presence and positioning. Not the kind of goalie who will scramble a lot to make desperation saves. Perplexing on many levels. Solid in most categories. Not elite in any one. Save % has ranged, as has his ability to steal games at the most important time of the year - playoffs. Remains a #1B overall - Looks like a #1A for long stretches.Oct. 24, 2023Oct. 26, 2023

Plays his off-wing - fantastic release - pucks are on and off his stick in a hurry.-defenders have very little time fronting him to block shots when he's coming off the flank Back door shooter on the PP Good skater with room for more power and open ice speed. Added strength required as he matures - which will help with explosiveness. Going to college. No secret about his element. The kind of player who needs to find a home in top six to play to his identity. More than doubled his offense year over year - Average defensivelyMar. 24, 2023Jun. 13, 2023

Undersize skill forward who has excellent puck touch and makes plays in the offensive zone. Fantastic stick - wastes very little time directing pucks on goal from the weak side flank on the PP -shoots the puck hard and accurately Game has evolved - showing he can be a threat at even strength - not just a power-play scorer Deployed occasionally on the PK - but cannot be described as a defensive specialist - he has the hockey IQ to be used in a variety of roles but his commitment defensively ranges on occasion - likely a player who will need to settle into a top six role to have impactMar. 25, 2023Jun. 13, 2023

#3
His GAA (1.52) led the NCAA in (22/23). Also had a save % of (.929) over 37GP Butterfly / Athletic. Excellent feet. Moves laterally very well - quick post to post and tracking play in front of him. Battles to make second saves. Average playing the puck. Glove hand positioning is a concern. Aggressively angles his glove hand downwards. At the pro level shooters might expose him over his left pad when he has to reposition his catcher to make saves. Good pads. His low net coverage is sound. He plays for a very good team but he's also part of their overall success. If not this yea, he will very likely get a pro contract after Sr. year.Mar. 10, 2023Mar. 20, 2023

Veteran defender who brings a physical presence. Gaps up with authority. When opponents get in his lane he is looking to finish his check in open ice and eliminate zone entries.

A still developing NHL centreman who averaged 16:00 TOI in 21/22 season Used in all situations. Brings energy and skill. Active forechecker without the puck who can create turnovers. On the PP he works the flank as a distributor. Overall he is more of a playmaker than a shooter. Has the skill, drive, and pace to potentially become a full time top 6 NHL forward who plays a mostly responsible 200ft game.Mar. 1, 2022Jul. 12, 2022

T6
A highly skilled forward who is exceptionally dangerous on the PP. Gleb is a very good skater. He's quick to space and can be a threat off the rush. His puck touch and release lands himself in the very top tier of his draft class. He's always in motion looking for an opportunity to strike offensively. His off the puck detail and defensive awareness is well below average. He cheats in his own zone anticipating pucks spilling to open areas of the ice. His element is offense, skill, and speed. Needs to be more detailed for the pro game.Apr. 11, 2022Jul. 4, 2022

P3
A transitional 'D' who can QB the PP. He has excellent vision. He's creative and has a good release / gets pucks to the net. He isn't a stationary player. He's active in the offensive zone and rotates looking for open space to make plays. Everything he does offensively has a purpose. He outlets well from his zone. He has the legs to join the rush. Defensively he gives up weight and strength but makes up for it with his hockey IQ. A smart defender who knows his physical limitations and adjusts. Projects bottom 6 at ES but can be used on PP.Apr. 23, 2022Jul. 4, 2022

T6
A threat to produce offense at ES and the PP. His element is clear. Out of the gate his first three steps are average but once up to speed he is hard to handle off the rush. When he gets the edge he will drop the knee and net drive. The fact he generally attacks from his off-wing opens him up on his forehand when going to the paint. His ability to spin off checks along the boards speaks to his strength and agility. There is room to clean up his defensive commitment but it is not an area of massive concern.Mar. 27, 2022Jul. 2, 2022

A big body who has a long way to go with his skating / agility / and execution with the puck. Struggles in small areas. He has a tough time defending opponents who are quick along the boards and spin off his checks. He will not bring offense. At best, if his skating improves and his puck play becomes more reliable, he is a defensive 'D' prospect.Apr. 8, 2022Apr. 13, 2022

M6
AVG TOI (14:38) In and out of the lineup recently. When he does play he rarely (if ever) sees the ice on the PP. His element coming into the league was that of a player who projected to produce offensively. A big body who is more of a shooter than a distributor. His numbers overall are trending down. Up to speed he provides slightly above average pace. Out of the gate he could be quicker. Defensive zone detail ranges. His execution needs to improve. A player who looks like the team and him could use a change. Power forward. Shooter. One year left on contract.Mar. 4, 2022Mar. 9, 2022

P2
Solid prospect who brings a combination of size, agility, offense, and good feel for the game. Makes plays in the pocket by spinning off opponents when they pressure him with the puck on his stick. Not shy about adding an extra layer off the rush. He can also lead the rush on his own. A bit of a deep knee bend. He can improve his skating another 10% which will add more value to his overall game. No glaring weaknesses in his game at this stage of his development.Nov. 20, 2021Jan. 2, 2022

A work in progress Big body who will need to continue to work on his agility. His read / react game down low in his zone will also need more attention. A worker in traffic. Not shy. Battles. Works to win pucks and goes to the net to create distraction. A role player who competes. Leans 2-way forward. Not naturally gifted offensively.Nov. 20, 2021Jan. 2, 2022

Undersize / transitional 'D' Quick / fast / agile No issues with his hockey sense and approach to the game He does lean offense more than being a player who can be leaned on in hard defensive minutes and roles Size is a challenge along the wall and out front this net when engaging physically Can run a PPOct. 23, 2021Jan. 1, 2022
