September Notebook – Froese

Zary showcases his skating ability in transition though the neutral zone as he is very fluid with the puck on or off his stick. He is always moving his feet, and although not fancy, he can deviate from routes quickly to get some space. He isn’t the fastest skater though, and his acceleration/explosiveness leaves a bit to be desired, but he thinks the game well enough to still be one step ahead at this level. He has good edgework in the offensive zone without the puck, which means defenders must watch him closely as he can dart in and out of high danger areas. Pucks seem to follow him, and he has a strong knack to get pucks off his stick quickly into the hands of his teammates or snapped on net. His ability to move the puck quickly is an asset on the cycle down low, in transition, or by entering the zone and his passing skills is one of his biggest assets. His shot is average, though it could get better once he gains some size and strength to his frame. Though there is some aggression elements and urgency in the defensive zone, it’s still a learning curve of where he needs to be and how to effectively pick up his man or present himself as a consistent support tool. Very much a work in progress but took a big step forward this year and shows effectiveness with his timing and opportunistic play at even strength and on special teams.
