Talent Analysis
Sackrison has always been a guy who can fill the net with pucks and figures to develop into a dangerous goal scoring threat in the future. He’s not only a dominant scorer, as he also displays great hockey sense and a soft passing touch. He’s a very shifty player with an array of offensive moves, which can either put him in position to score a goal himself, or set up one of his teammates for a scoring chance. His defensive game needs a lot of improvement.
Future
Sackrison will be a senior at Minnesota State-Mankato in 2010-11.
