Trent Klatt, Islanders Scout
Henrik works well in small areas He is strong on his skates and protects the puck well with his body. He likes to go into dirty areas of the rink.
Ryan Strome, Islanders First Round pick in 2011
Daniil Zharkov kind of came out of nowhere. I think I only played against him once, but he's at a good skill level. He skates around the ice pretty fast, he likes to zip around out there and use his speed. He's a guy that has good offensive skills, and a good knack around the net.
