Grzelcyk is a small, but highly mobile defenseman with excellent offensive instincts. He is a strong puckhandler who can rush the puck and drive the offense. Grzelcyk is a power play weapon thanks to his sharp distribution skills and his ability to find soft spots in defensive zone coverage. Defensively, Grzelcyk brings a good compete level and is a determined player but his positioning is still a work in progress. Grzelcyk impressed at this summer’s US World Junior evaluation camp, and is believed to have the inside track on a spot on the 2013 squad. Grzelcyk is very much like David Warsofsky in size, ability and upside.
