At an informal skate in Frisco last week Roope Hintz put on a minor puck-handling clinic during a small-sided three-on-three scrimmage.
He picked up the puck behind his net, angled his body to protect it as he charged forward, slipped the puck around another defender’s stick, and ended up with complete possession behind the opposite net. From there he faked one way, took a step in the other direction, and set up Denis Gurianov with a seeing-eye pass at the far post.
It’s just a collection of moves at informal skates, but Hintz is already starting to grab attention of those within the organization.
