Talent Analysis

Is an offensive-oriented defenseman. Piche does very well on the powerplay, as he has good puck control and possesses an impressive, strong shot. He also plays a steady defensive game when needed.

Future


Projects as a depth defenseman. Will really need to step up and show he can play at the pro level.  Piche was dealt to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the deal that brought Kyle Quincey back to the Detroit Red Wings.

But this month’s top rookies – Filip Forsberg of Nashville and Calgary’s Johnny Gaudreau – are not the same two rookies who were nearly unanimous choices for the first and second spots in our November poll.
