Taylor Doherty's Player Profile

At 6’8”, 218 lbs, this bruising defenceman has tremendous NHL ready size in the mould of Zdeno Chara. A good skater, who has learned to use his body much more effectively against opponents in the early part of this season, compared to last season. Since being paired recently with a newly traded partner, he has played his best hockey in the OHL. A strong defensive player, who understands that side of the game quite effectively and is used by his team in all situations, penalty killing, power play and being out in the last minute of the game.

Had 6 goals and 20 points in 64 games last year and we think he might be able to become a little more offensive, but he is not going to be an offensive defenceman at the next level. He skates well for a player of his size, but needs to improve his mobility in traffic. Has good hockey sense and a strong willingness to compete.
