September Notebook – Tessler

A complete and competitive playmaking power forward with a smooth and powerful stride that gives him a great top speed. His skating is above average in every aspect; he can accelerate quickly, his top speed helps him put defenders on their heels, he can cut and turn quickly to attack the center ice and has great agility helping him escape from tight spaces. He has impressive strength and balance, which allows him to win most of his board battles. He won’t often throw big hits, but he’ll get into any physical engagement to recover the puck. Despite being excellent on the forecheck, he prefers creating controlled zone entries than dumping the puck in the offensive zone. He always has the heads up which gives him a good vision of the play. He makes smart decisions with the puck to keep the possession, and get his teammates involved by opening the play frequently. He has an excellent compete level as he’s the first to forecheck and backcheck. He gets into dirty areas to get hold of the puck or crashes to the net to take rebounds. He also owns a powerful wrist shot and some decent passing skills to help set up teammates. He’s at his best on the offense in the opposing team zone but he can help his team on the defensive side, too, by blocking shots or disrupting passing lanes with an active stick.  He is always one step ahead of the game and reads the ice well.
