Talent Analysis

Mašín is a versatile defenseman with leadership abilities who has been steadily moving up the ranks of the 2014 prospects. The versatile defenseman profits from his size (6'2") which allows him to stand tall in his own end, but also be a threat on the blue line. He's not much of a physical force when it comes to hitting, but he does his job back in the defensive zone. Masin has also displayed consistency throughout the season, steadily improving his game as the season has progressed.
