Talent Analysis

Rensfeldt has the size and scoring touch to potentially develop into a power forward. He can quickly unleash his heavy wrist shot and is especially dangerous on the rush. He prefers to cut to the slot for his scoring chances rather than earning chances in front of the net. He could stand to add more strength to help fight through checks.

Future

Rensfeldt was selected 49th overall in the CHL Import Draft by the Sarnia Sting and will likely benefit from increased ice time in the OHL for the 2011-12 season.
