“A big-bodied power winger with the ability to physically dominate, making him a prominent forechecking presence every night. Possesses good hands that can be used to make crisp passes or to let loose accurate, NHL-level shots; paired with his strength and skating ability, his skill set allows him to contribute offensively, as well as create space for teammates.”
We haven’t seen Lawson Crouse throw his weight around a lot so far in his short tenure with the Arizona Coyotes.
Last night, he did begin to get a little more physical and that may have been in part because of the extra ice time he received due to injuries to Tobias Rieder and Martin Hanzal.
Whatever the case, I’d like to see more of it.
At 6’4 and 220 pounds, Crouse cuts an imposing figure on the ice.
The sooner he harnesses the ability to use that size to his advantage against other grown men, the better he’ll look in the brick red and black.
