Tim Erixon Scouting Report


"He's a very good skater and has good mobility, is a good passer and rarely losses a battle on the rush or even down low. He can contain players down low and has good offensive skills, a good head and good poise. There's not much negative to say about this guy."

NHL.com

He is calm, patient and just rock solid. He reminds me a lot of Ryan McDonagh, not just in how he plays, but in how he seems to be off the ice. He is quiet, collected, and ready to work. McDonagh didn't make the team to start last season, but I am not sure that Erixon will find the same fate. I think that Erixon will be a Ranger when the Rangers open up in Sweden on October 7th.

Erixon scored the Rangers first goal last night.

Mike Sullivan kept talking about his poise during his segment last night and that was something that really shone through. Erixon is 20 and has played against men and for his country in highly competitive games so he has experience that should make him confident.

At The Hockey News, Ryan Kennedy writes about Rangers prospect Tim Erixon and places him on "The Hot List."

Erixon told Kennedy that he will play wherever he is needed on the ice:

?I think I can play in both ends, I play a two-way game,? he said. ?I?ll play wherever the coach needs me.?

At ESPN Insider, Timo Seppa looks at the Rangers as part of his Summer Skate series.

Using his advanced hockey stats, he predicts that Marian Gaborik should have a better season and points to his shooting percentage rebounding back towards the norm as he plays with Brad Richards.

The advanced stats point to Richards being a player that is trending down as he gets older and recorded a career high shooting percentage last season.
