Talent Analysis

At 6'3” and 220 pounds, Soleway already has the body of an NHL player. He is a gritty power forward who likes to plant himself in front of the net and make goalies lives a nightmare. He can be hard to move off the puck, and even hard to move out from in front of the net. A hard-working forward who fits the profile of power forward to a tee.

 

Future

Soleway came out of the lesser known British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) but will get his chance on a much bigger stage moving forward. He has committed to the University of Wisconsin for the fall.

The Arizona Coyotes have actively addressed the composition of their prospect pool since the 2013-14 trade deadline. A year ago, there was a logjam of talented defensemen throughout their pipeline. At the deadline, general manager Dave Maloney traded David Rundblad to the Chicago Blackhawks. At the 2014 NHL Draft, the Coyotes grabbed seven forwards while only selecting two defensemen, both in the late rounds.

The Phoenix Coyotes have made a habit of hoarding big, physical hockey players throughout all levels of their organization. This trend holds true in their pool of college hockey prospects. It is a player-type they clearly value.

The Phoenix Coyotes may have the most unbalanced prospect pool in the league. On defense, they have more legitimate players than places to put them. At forward, they may be forced to convert their young centers to address the scarcity of talent on both wings.

The Phoenix Coyotes made six selections at the 2013 NHL Draft, primarily improving the center depth in the pipeline while still adding depth to the strengths in goal and on defense. The Coyotes draft class does not feature a lot of size, but each of the players makes up for it by competing hard and being willing to throw their weight around anyway.
