This is below the average of 60.7 points among top Coyotes prospects..
Brendan Perlini did have a rough season in the OHL, however. I don’t expect him to have a guaranteed roster spot this season, but do see him making a guest appearance on the team throughout the season.
Perlini has potential but hasn’t fully reached it.
Christian Fischer, Right Winger
Fischer plays right wing which puts him in a good position considering the Arizona Coyotes apparent hole in that spot. The recent signing of Radim Vrbata helped strengthen that side, however the need is still there.
He is considered a power forward and is built for the NHL, being 6-foot-1 and 212 pounds, however he is only 19 years old. He has the dedication and mind set of an NHL player but lacks the experience, and should he not make the Coyotes’ roster he will have to return to Windsor.
Dylan Strome and Christian Dvorak
Not over looking the two top candidates, Dylan Strome and Christian Dvorak, who undoubtedly have made the biggest impression on the Coyotes organization and fan base.
Both fit the image of potential top NHL centers and have the points and hockey resume to back it up.
Dvorak racked up 121 points in 59 games, with 52 goals and 69 assists. Strome had 37 goals and 74 assists in 56 games, totaling 111 points. Both players fit a hole up the middle the Arizona Coyotes need to strengthen.
Strome is an intelligent hockey player, having the hockey I.Q needed to prosper at a high level in the NHL. Dylan fits the mold of a top NHL center, one that is hard to come by. Is he ready this season?
Can he match other centers in the league like Jonathan Toews, Ryan Getzlaf and Tyler Seguin?
Dvorak is known for his impressive vision in front of and around the net.
He also has a competitive drive that makes it hard to defend against and contain him. Christian brings a strong work ethic and fits the mold of whatever line he is put on.
He has a good scoring ability and would fit into the NHL, this season.
