//// Prospects Advantage
Future NHL stars: West (Drake Bode)
Team: Norman Northstars Midget AAA
Overall Player Rating: B+
Skating ability: Average
Shooting ability: Above average
Passing ability: Above average
Weakness: Needs to be better defensively.
Stats: In three games this season, Bode has two goals, three assists and four penalty minutes for the Northstars.
Potential: Bode has shown glimpses of superior play thus far this season. An average skater, Bode has great accuracy in both passing and shooting and will likely log a lot of ice time on special teams throughout the season. One scout says he feels Bode needs to step up his play in his own zone and become better defensively. If he does that, the youngster’s stock will continue to rise.
