An agile skater, Newhook accelerates quickly to gain separating speed and is able to dash past defenders. Strong skater at his level, but he will need to improve explosiveness and raw power. Offensively driven player, he handles the puck with finesse and excels when leading a rush. Manages game well in the offensive zone under pressure. Shows great hockey sense, but needs to work on his consistency to play motivated. A pass first player with above average vision, he has the tools to take advantage of the other team’s mistakes. Sometimes can pass too often when the better play is to shoot. Not really strong on the dot. Weaker presence physically as well when challenged and seldom steps up to hard areas of the ice. Defensively, he lacks intensity and drive and doesn’t appear engaged in the play in his own end. Keeps stick in puck lanes and will step in front of shots, but avoids getting into battles. Away from the puck in the defensive zone, he looks to break the zone, stretch the ice and transition quickly. There is still more work needed to play tighter in his own zone and use his feet to get him in position to use his body to take the man off the puck. Overall great hockey IQ, but he needs to bring the intensity up a notch more consistently to succeed at the next level.
