Sam Rinzel's Player Profile

Sebastian High - Dobber Prospects - June 18th: "He is a big offensive defenseman who will be well and truly imposing once he fills out his frame. Rinzel also knows how to use his physicality, he clears the net-front effectively, likes to go for a big hit when he has the option to, and uses his strength and length to protect the puck."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 6th: "Rinzelís appeal is all about the potential because it feels like heís just scratching the surface. Heís a fluid skater with an active stick and an eager approach to playing offence and defence that keeps him involved in all three zones."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 31: "Scouts are excited about Rinzel due to his tool kit. Heís 6-foot-4, skates quite well for a man his size, and has offensive skill. Heís quite dangerous in transition due to his reach and speed and is able to create offense off the rush."

Chris Peters - Daily Faceoff - June 10th: "His high school performances were fine, but at the junior level under better competition, I thought he raised his level a few notches but you could see he was behind a little bit. Rinzel is a very good skater for a player his size and has an innate ability to get pucks up ice with some incredible skill and vision."
