History

Finishing among the WHL’s top names in scoring is a fitting way for the now former Brandon Wheat King captain Tim Konsorada to close out his junior career. Bothered all last season with a nagging shoulder injury, he was able to play in 71 of 72 games, nearly triple that of his 2003-04 season when it was discovered in Blue Jackets training camp that he had suffered a dislocated shoulder.

His 85 points placed Konsorada fourth in league scoring, behind only fellow Blue Jackets prospect Gilbert Brule and Wheat King teammates Eric Fehr and Ryan Stone. His 58 assists placed him behind only Stone’s 66 assists for the league lead as well. More interesting, though, was that Konsorada rarely played with Brandon’s dynamic duo, opting to quarterback the second line, while still playing on the blue line in the power play.

Talent Analysis
A tough, gritty leader, Konsorada also possesses some offensive potential, though not as much as the statistics would indicate for the overager. Able to make crisp passes and display above average vision, Konsorada’s biggest strength lies in his ability to play a first-rate two-way game. Konsorada excels in the defensive end, making him not only an offensive threat but a defensive one as well.
