Marek Alscher is a defenseman who uses his size well and plays an effective modern defensive game. He plays with a high level of awareness and assertiveness. He has a competitive edge in puck battles along the boards and down low, often coming out with the puck thanks to his strength and reach, and he occasionally makes life tough for those who try to stand in front of his net. He is a reliable defender, effective at using both his stick and his body when trying to separate a player from the puck. He keeps a good gap while defending the rush and is fleet of foot enough to not get burned often by speedy opponents. He’s not overly physical, but he’s focused and is able defend smartly and cleanly without getting into penalty trouble. He does seem to react to plays as they’re developing rather than anticipate plays to try and get ahead, which is something that may limit his overall effectiveness. On the offensive side of the puck he lacks pop. When in the offensive zone he doesn’t seem fond of jumping in and getting involved, and he can get too static standing on the line. When exiting the zone he’s just content to make the first pass up the ice and then hang back himself instead of trying to add a second wave to the attack. Every now and again, though, he’ll find a burst of confidence and activate on the rush, and maybe even try carrying the puck into the zone himself. It’s not frequent, however. His puck control isn’t actually bad at all, it’s surprisingly good, and he’ll tease you with flashes of it that make you wonder how much better that aspect of his game can get. He has a lot of room left to grow as a defender, and his odds of becoming a top-four defender one day are better than most blueliners his age.
