Faber, now in the Minnesota Wild organization after being selected in the second round (No. 45) of the 2020 draft by the Los Angeles Kings, is a two-way defenseman who does a lot of little things that might not always get noticed. His skating and defensive prowess really stand out. Faber maintains great gap control, using his mobility and his active stick to help negate chances off the rush. In his own zone he has excellent body positioning and IQ to consistently be in the right position to suppress any quality chances the opponents may generate. Faber isn’t a big producer offensively, but he has an impressive offensive toolbox. He has strong vision and passing ability that allow him to be an effective player in the transition game. In the offensive zone, he has a capable shot that can beat goalies when he gets the puck in space but is a better facilitator than he is a scoring threat. He isn’t the flashiest player but he’s so good in so many different areas and is a heavily relied upon player for Team USA. Faber can be a big part of Minnesota’s blue line going forward. The Wild have a big veteran presence on the back end, and getting a young, potential core piece in Faber was very crucial for their future.
