Trevor Zegras, #11 Avon Old Farms, RW, Shoots Left, 3/20/01, 5-11/160 (Boston University) - The Terrier commit is an elite skater with a tremendous overall offensive skill set. He had a goal and an assist, but was a threat with the puck on his stick throughout the entire game. His first chance came early in the game where he showed off his speed as he burst in on net from the right side and got off a good shot. A few minutes later he won a puck battle in the right corner of the offensive zone and sent out a quick pass to the slot for a good chance. He showed good footwork coming into the zone down the left side, turning to the side before giving a pass back to the trailer for a wrist shot on net. His first step and skating ability was on display in the second period when he blew past a defender down the right side. After getting by the defender, he sent a great pass out to the slot for a chance. On the power play he was shifty and elusive along the wall as the puck went through him. He also does a good job of finding seams in the defense without the puck to get into position to receive passes. On his second period goal he showed off his quick release as he came in on the right side on a two-on-one. The puck was barely on his stick after receiving a feed from Tyler Madden before it was in the back of the net. He consistently made good passes from the wall and below the goal line. His speed into the attacking zone set up possession which led to Timonen’s third period goal.
