Michael Rasmussen's Player Profile

ISS Hockey - Mar. 8th: "Out of lineup with lower body injury almost impossible to move once parked in front of the net."

Jeff Marek of Sportsnet - Mar. 8th: "A wrist injury will cost him three months, but scouts still rave. Rasmussen can score goals and for a 6-foot-5 player, scouts are impressed at how well he gets around the ice. Has been great on the PP."

Mike Morreale of NHL.com - Feb. 16th: "[Rasmussen] has either the best natural instinct or willingness to get to the net and go around the net," Tri-City coach Mike Williamson said. "And it sounds simple, but a lot of guys play on the perimeter, are not willing to go there, or just are off to the side enough to make it easy for a goalie. But his natural first instinct when he gets over the blue line is to get around the net."

ISS Hockey - Feb. 7th: "Skilled big man w/the size that scouts fawn over & the best is yet to come from him."

Mike Morreale NHL.com - Jan. 20th: "He knows how to use his 6-foot-6, 215-pound frame to his fullest advantage. He has shown more confidence this season with 51 points (30 goals, 21 assists) in 46 games. Does a fine job getting to the dirty areas to provide screens and get deflections, and knows how to protect the puck with his reach."

Dennis Schellenberg Hockey Prospectus - Nov. 9th: "A big kid with strong puck protection skills. Works hard all over the ice and has good playmaking skills. Uses his good vision and passing skills to distribute the puck effectively. "
