Wyse looked excellent in the scrimmage, carried the puck out of D zone with speed, ended rushes with strong checks, never looked slow-footed either forward or backward. Never a noticable play that turned out to be Gildon. If Gildon didn't play in the scrimmage (his D zone was other end of ice), I'd believe it. I never noticed him.
NU's Solow was disappointing. Obviously skilled with the puck, the scrimmage seemed too fast for him.
While Panthers fans got to see UVM's Stef Lekkas's magic as he battled No. 1 draft pick Spencer Knight save for save to a 2-2 draw, Catamounts fans never saw the early-departed Jake Massie play as fast and aggressive as he played in Florida.. Massie looked like a different player than in college.
If Wyse carries what he did in Panthers orientation camp onto Lake Whitt, he should be a force for the Wildcats this season.
