In this week’s RED LINE REPORT, Wolves’ rookie forward ALAN LYSZCZARCAYK is listed as one of three NHL draft-eligible players that have ‘jumped-up the most’ on the radar of this respected amateur NHL Draft Rating Service, led by long-time Scouting Director Kyle Woodlief.
RED LINE REPORT have described the Wolves’ free agent forward as a player that “has flashed speed and offensive skills since arriving in Sudbury.” The Polish native has scored 6 goals and has added 9 assists for 15 points in 23 games. LYSZCZARCZYK has been especially effective when playing on a line with 16-year-old forward David Levin.
LYSZCZARCZYK is rated at #108 on the RED LINE REPORT. Fellow teammate DMITRY SOKOLOV continues to impress and leads the Wolves in scoring with 9 goals and 18 points. SOKOLOV remains rated in the first round of next year’s NHL Draft at #18 overall.
Other Wolves players rated include: Goaltender TROY TIMPANO (#88) and forward MICHAEL PEZZETTA. PEZZETTA continues to climb up the charts with his strong two-way play to go along with his 12 points so far this season. PEZZETTA has already surpassed his point totals from all of last season. He has also taken-on a leadership role with the Sudbury Wolves by taking the ASIST leadership program as a player representative and has developed into a highly respected teammate both on and off of the ice.
Other Wolves’ players that remain in the sights of NHL scouts to date include defenceman TRENTON BOURQUE and goaltender MATTHEW MENNA. Both players are draft eligible for the first time. ZACK BOWMAN has caught the eye of NHL scouts as the 18-year-old goaltender has played well since arriving from Flint, Michigan in October. COLE MAYO, 18, is a right-shot defenceman that has also developed into a very dependable two-way defenceman and plays a solid physical game. Mayo has become one of the Wolves’ best shot-blocking defencemen.
