Carson Rehkopf


Although he's a very upright skater, Rehkopf can really get up a head of steam. Combined with his long reach he can take defenders wide and create a play using his skating ability. He's also strong on his feet and uses his body to protect the puck.


He's a smooth puck handler and comfortable quarterbacking the offense with the puck on his stick. His passing is also crisp and smart.


Rehkopf possesses a powerful shot and has shown to be dangerous from long range. I don't necessarily see him as a sniper, but he is a threat from all over the offensive zone.

IQ (Vision, Anticipation, Panic/Poise):

He's very poised with the puck, and has good vision for his teammates.


I'd like to see him use his speed and size a bit more aggressively on the forecheck, he's more of a passive pressure guy from what I've seen.


He's got good reach and is willing to fight for pucks. Not a standout defensively but not a negative either.

Best Asset:


Biggest Concern:

I worry he doesn't necessarily have a standout skill, he may be a bit of "jack of all trades master of none" guy who gets relegated to third line duties

Top Tier/Role Potential:

Top line winger with 70-80 points

Justification for Top Tier Assessment:

He's got a lot of talent and hockey sense, just unsure how well it will translate to the NHL.

50th Percentile Tier/Role:

3rd line winger, plays all situations.

Justification for 50th Percentile Tier Assessment:

He doesn't have one elite skill to allow him to carry a line or take over games on his own.

Stylistic Comparable:

Jonathan Huberdeau

Scouts Final Thoughts and Additional Stats/Info:

With regards to Firkus vs Rehkopf, both 50+ goal scorers in their CHL seasons, I definitely would be taking Firkus. He's a bit more raw defensively, but the standout offensive talent gives him a path to more elite production IMO. It will be interesting to see if these guys line up together in the AHL next year.
