A tantalizing combination of skill and size, Dach is an offense-first center who is developing his 200-foot game. He may not always look crisp when striding quickly, but he’s an absolute wrecking ball and showcases a ton of power in his feet. His stride will need to be refined which will lead to more neutral…

A tantalizing combination of skill and size, Dach is an offense-first center who is developing his 200-foot game. He may not always look crisp when striding quickly, but he’s an absolute wrecking ball and showcases a ton of power in his feet. His stride will need to be refined which will lead to more neutral zone speed. Simply put, he’s a highlight reel waiting to happen. He plays with a calm confidence, dictates the pace of play and has the ability to take over a game at any point. Displaying incredible vision and passing ability, he works well in tight around the net with very soft hands. He is sublime in his puck control both in tight and with his hands away from his body. He plays with a very long stick and is a vacuum for any puck within his reach. Once he has possession, he is incredibly difficult to strip of the puck due to his size, reach and impeccable puck control. Defensively, Dach is solid. He uses his lengthy stick very well, but could use his huge frame to separate opponents off the puck more often. Overall, Dach has high-end skill with above average hockey IQ. He needs to compete harder at winning more battles and loose pucks. Although he has shown moderate improvements on the dot, more work on winning faceoffs will be necessary.
