2011-12: Crane really improved his offensive game this season at Ohio State University when the sophomore winger scored 14 goals along with 10 assists and a minus three rating in 35 NCAA games. He led the Buckeyes team with the most points, goals, power play goals (six) while scoring two game winning goals and providing leadership when needed this year.
Crane plays really well on the boards, has a good work ethic, a nose for the puck around the net and thrives when he drives the high traffic areas to score most of his goals. The physical forward will need to improve his first four step acceleration, shooting while in stride and his defensive play without the puck.
Crane will be expected to bring more offense and a better overall game in his junior season at Ohio State while continuing his development at the NCAA and providing the Buckeyes team with character and leadership.
