After being disconnected from junior hockey and specifically the BCHL for nearly a decade, i decided to take the plunge back in and headed to langley on tuesday, then wednesday to see what all this hype is about over turris. i have seen his dominant numbers and wanted to see the product in person. please understand as stated above i am merely a fan, i know they pay scouts a lot of money to make these kind of decisions, and there are many, many people more in the know about turris, this is merely my observation. the first game, i noticed him immediately. great skater, good hands, and a good shot he was constantly looking to use. what struck me the most was his passing, as he made several poised confident passes to players who didn't appear to be open at all. i was also thoroughly impressived with his speed down low, coming off the cycle with the puck and into scoring positions. he played the point on the power play, and it was obvious that team protocol was to get him the puck, then start from there. a big responsibilty for such a young player no doubt. his team ended up losing and i left the rink thinking that for a kid with such massive numbers, he had been underused by his coach (though he surely played 25+ minutes). hindsight being that the coach was likely saving him for game seven. in game seven he wasn't nearly as noticeable. what i did notice was how much he played, and i think that speaks volumes about a coach's confidence in a player in a must win game. time and time again he was thrown on the ice, playing an almost incredible amount. (so i say he wasn't noticeable, but played tonnes, thats because i was specifically watching him). in the end his team won in overtime, so hopefully i can see him again. all in all i am impressed with this kid. i don't think you could look at his numbers and not be. i found him to be very "heady" with great hockey sense, and excellent positioning in all zones. if i was to offer one knock it would be his size. this kid is slight. i mean really small in the legs and seems like he has a lot of growing left to do. he's listed at 6 foot, 165lbs, and even that may be generous (weight wise). this should be fixed by time and of course getting into a rigorous NCAA training program. on a side note, i was amazing at how non-physical the BCHL was (or at least that series). very wide open and so little hitting that when you saw one you said "hey a hit". this may be a factor in evaluating turris as well.
