2011-12: In his first year with the Golden Gophers, Ambroz was a nonfactor. He had eight points in 41 games, netting five goals and setting up three. Just a year after dropping like a face off puck in the draft ranking, Ambroz was unable to silence the naysayers his first year in college.
Ambroz has size and a nice shot, but needs to work on his awareness. He is a big body on the ice and can develop into a great power forward once he learns proper positioning in the crease.
Ambroz has all the potential in the world and should develop nicely in his four years at Minnesota. He won’t come out seasoned, but over time should be able to play a consistent role in the NHL.
