Guenther named WHL Rookie of the Year

Guenther is an elite on and off puck player who has a wide variety of weaponry that he’s capable of showing off. Guenther is about as complete of a package you can find in a player but also has room to keep on developing his tools and approach to the game. He’s a strong skater who utilizes crossovers effectively to change his routes and gain speed so he can gain momentum into his glide and works well in tight spaces. His ability to make plays through weight shifts and angle his body to protect pucks and move pucks to efficient space so he can make a play is an effective part of his game and is capable of showing off fine motor skills and skill layering. He’s a strong dual threat player who is proactive at reading ice to move pucks to space and then timing a route to play off the backs of defenders and manipulating space to jump into open ice to pick up a puck. He’s a skilled puck handler who has good body shape when shooting and passing and shows the knack to make proactive decisions and the ability to adapt and solve problems or show some creative edge to his game. He’s becoming honed as a shooter and has the ability to open up his body to be a one timer threat and use his wrist shot as a more refined tool where he can quickly collect and pick a spot with some strong mechanics. There are very few weaknesses in his game. Guenther isn’t a relentless forechecker and while he is often putting pressure on puck carriers, he holds off just slightly; choosing to keep positioning a priority as well. if Guenther continues to use power moves to the net by lowering his shoulder and retaining possession, he could be even more dangerous. Defensively, there’s a hunger to get the puck and turn over play, in which he uses a good stick and sprinkles in some physicality to do so. He can be a bit hasty in getting to some assignments which does leave him in some inopportune spots but the efforts are applauded. Moving forward, he will want more attentiveness to detail sprinkled in and use of methodical angles.
