Filmon

Josh Filmon is a power-forward type of player who’s still quite raw and inexperienced, but showed good growth throughout this season and could still have plenty of untapped upside. He doesn’t really have one standout trait, but does multiple things well. His large frame certainly provides some natural advantages for him, and he’s still far…

Josh Filmon is a power-forward type of player who’s still quite raw and inexperienced, but showed good growth throughout this season and could still have plenty of untapped upside. He doesn’t really have one standout trait, but does multiple things well. His large frame certainly provides some natural advantages for him, and he’s still far from getting his strength and conditioning as high as they can go. He has a pretty good skating technique and long strides, which allow him to hit a good top gear and help him be effective on the backcheck. He’s got an above-average shot already, and it’s easy to see it improving over time as he adds strength and hones his skills a little more. He finds those all-important scoring spaces at a nice rate, and uses a longer stick than most guys his size and is effective at using it in quick catch and release situations. He has the offensive creativity to read the play and try some high-level skill moves or tricky passes when the time is right, and while he’s not always successful in completing them, you like that he’s confident enough to try. He will need to work on his shift-by-shift consistency, as he is prone to looking like a passenger some shifts rather than being a difference-maker, but with his variety of tools he could become someone who leaves his mark in plenty of different ways. He will need to better learn how to use his size to his advantage. You have to do a lot of projecting and wish-casting with him, but his club is going to put a lot of ice time on his plate soon, and they’re already dabbling with playing him down the middle. Filmon’s ceiling is likely as a middle-six forward, and many teams will be excited to take him on as a project given the collection of tools and size he has.
