Ian McCoshen's Player Profile

McCoshen was an integral cog for a quality team in Waterloo. He is not a highlight-reel type of player, as he rarely makes great dekes or crushing hits, but he has a lot of good attributes. He projects as a two-way, tough minutes defenseman. He has above-average mobility in every direction, with good technique in his footwork, as he generates nice power from his strike. His best attribute is his hockey sense, which is arguably high end. McCoshen always seems to make the right plays in every end, with or without the puck. He has a very low level of panic with the puck. He knows how to make the basic plays, and he also possesses the awareness to try more difficult maneuvers when the opportunity presents itself. Despite his good frame and decent amount of bulk, he is not really a physical player. He prefers the stickcheck to taking the body.

Boston College commit is currently the defensive leader of a strong Waterloo team… Very polished defenseman with inviting combination of size and physical tools… Understands how to play a shutdown game… Safe bet to develop into an NHL player although high-end upside may not be there.
