A versatile player who can play the wing or the middle, Ertel brings a lot of energy and skill to the game. He has an impressive hockey resume, playing for St. Andrew’s College and spending his draft year in the Maritime Junior League, he has some solid offensive traits. He controls the puck well, keeping it close to his body and using his stickhandling and edgework can avoid contact through the neutral zone. He is most dangerous off the rush because of his straight-line speed and ability to use his body to box out opponents while attacking the net. He struggles when operating out of the cycle, his confidence and control of the puck drop off significantly when he can’t use his straight-line speed. In the defensive zone he struggles to hold his position, he’s overeager to transition to offense and tends to blow the zone early before his team safely breakout. Despite his deficiencies, Ertel had a strong season in the MJAHL and is committed to Cornell in the NCAA for the upcoming season. In college he will be able to continue working on his strong traits and have the coaching and resources to develop his weaknesses. He could carve out a bottom-6 role with some power play contributions because of his ability to thrive in space.
