SCOUTING REPORTS

“He is a clever two-way center who reads the game well. Has really great skating abilities and good work ethic. Has improved his release and is now a good shooter, combined with the smartness which he uses to find unexpected passes. I am excited to see his future development as he is that kind of guy that really works hard, on and off-ice. He is certainly determined to have a good hockey career.” -Carl Larsson, Future Considerations

“He’s talented. He’s a two-way (player). He’s cerebral. I don’t think he’s going to bring people out of their seats but if you understand the game you’ll have a real appreciation for the way he plays both sides of the puck.” -Mike Souza, Head Coach, Univ. of New Hampshire

“I think he’s one of the hardest guys to play against in practice, personally. He’s gifted offensively so he does a great job offensively scoring goals and getting to the dirty areas. … Fil’s a specimen, on and off the ice. He’s big, he’s strong, but he can move. He can move really well. For example, if you cut back on him, he does a very good job of staying with you, containing you, but he’ll also use his physicality against you, knock you off the puck. It’s tough to play against him.” -Angus Crookshank, teammate

“A power forward with strong goal scoring abilities. His skating will need to improve if he hopes to be a middle-six winger in the NHL in the future.” -Dobber Prospects

“My strengths are my skating abilities and my hockey sense. I’m working hard in all three zones and I think I have good defensive qualities. It’s the offensive part of my game that I want to improve.” -Filip Engaras on his own game

LOOKING AHEAD…

Much like any prospect selected in the sixth round of the NHL Entry Draft, Filip Engaras will require plenty of patience and freedom to develop if he’s going to ever reach the National Hockey League. A longterm project to be sure, Engaras will return to the University of New Hampshire where it is expected he will assume a larger role with the Wildcats before continuing his journey into professional hockey.
