Hoglander is a menace to hockey society. He’s the real deal. Doyle wanted to draft Vilardi, Bouchard and Boldy
DOYLE WOULD’VE RATHER HAD KEVIN HAYES AT 7 YEARS 7 MILLION PER INSTEAD OF J.T. MILLER FOR A LATE 1ST RD PICK

That assist was great. Kids got great on=ice awareness as to where his players are. Can knock a few in himself too.

Per? How would you assess what you've seen of Hoglander's defensive game?

His play around the net is a bit like Gallaghers game. Hes chippy and smallish but fights through it and posts up for some net front beatings. He could blossom on the smaller ice

Hoggy had a beaut primary assist the other day, some great dangles. Maybe he becomes the next Marty St. Louis. :D

He could also get caught with his head down and have his career ended on game one.

I think we should all temper our expectations a bit on some of our prospects.

Na I prefer to believe they all will pan out to be hall of famers

Sorry, can’t really say much. Rögle is not my team and so I don’t tend to watch their games, just the highlights, and the highlights don’t tend to focus on great defence...

What I can say is that Rögle is in second place in the SHL, trailing by three points but with two games in hand, so right at the top. Höglander is averaging 13 minutes per game and is a +5, which is about average on the team. At least he doesn’t seem to be a defensive liability.
Whatever you do, always give 100 %!
