Jake Guentzel Player Bio


Jake Guentzel

ON-ICE VALUE
First-Line Forward

STRENGTHS
Finish: Guentzel is a high-level scorer because he takes high-percentage shots. Most of his attempts come from the slot area, where he leverages his quick release and accuracy. He requires very little time to take quality shots. He’s also effective on the backhand and his hand-eye coordination leads to many deflection opportunities.

Playmaking: He’s a close-quarters dual threat, often making the extra pass to take advantage of a goaltender who has slid across to cover his shot. He displays nice touch and solid vision in congested areas. He doesn’t get his due as a clever playmaker.

Offensive Instincts: Much of his success stems from his ability to navigate prime real estate. He offers teammates great targets in tight, but he also knows when to pull back and provide a high-slot look as well. Moreover, he takes good shots. You won’t see him chuck long-distance bids on goal for the sake of it.

WEAKNESSES
Strength: At 5’11” and 180 pounds, he isn’t the smallest forward in the league. However, he definitely lacks the strength to battle down low. He isn’t great at winning puck battles or maintaining possession with a defender on his back. He lacks the explosion to shake opponents and create separation.

Puck Management: Guentzel excels as quick-strike weapon. When he’s granted time and space on the outside, he overcooks his decisions and gets himself in trouble. He hesitates or attempts senseless passes into traffic. He doesn’t have the frame or the disposition to play a more patient brand of hockey.
