Swift Current Broncos at Acadie-Bathurst Titan, May 19, 2018
SC #5 Minulin, Artyom (2018) – Artyom looked slow at times out there tonight. His foot speed was an issue when trying to keep up with the quick Titan forwards. Played a steady shut down roll. Artyom didn’t create anything offensively. Finished the game a minus two. First penalty kill and second power play unit.
SC #23 Patterson, Max (2018) – Max had one shift in the first period, then was thrust into action on the top line when Tyler Steenbergen went down early in the second with an injury. Max used his size to cycle the puck well and was able to get to the front of the net nice. Played physical when he had the chance. Skating was a major issue. Acceleration was below average. Multiple turnovers in the neutral zone.
ABT#53 Dobson, Noah (2018) – With me being based out west, it was my first viewing of Noah and I was extremely impressed. His calmness and ability to slow the play down made him the Titan’s top defensemen tonight. Had an outstanding assist on the overtime winning goal. Noah demanded the puck all night. Great first passes. Strong defensively on the penalty kill. Noah played a mistake free game tonight. First power play and penalty kill units.
ABT#71 Ducharme, Justin (2018) Justin saw his playing time increase as the game went on. Good skater, and was one the Titan’s top penalty killers. Willing to block shots. Took a slashing penalty but it probably saved a goal. Had a breakaway shorthanded in the third but wasn’t able to finish. First penalty kill unit.
