Koehn Ziemmer



Skating:

Below Average- Not much explosiveness in his strides, which doesn’t allow him to pick up much speed. Same with cuts and edges as he falls a step behind because there isn’t much quickness.


Passing/Handling:

Above average- Shown flashes of nice puck skills. Not much of a playmaker, but has the ability to create open space for himself.


Shooting:

Great- Quick release off his blade with plenty of power and accuracy.


IQ (Vision, Anticipation, Panic/Poise):

Medium- When under pressure, he has a tendency of forcing passes to areas where there’s nobody around. However, he has shown flashes of poise to maneuver his way around and create open space for himself.


Forechecking:

Average- Isn't necessarily a work horse when forechecking, but is effective when he puts in the work. Likes to use physicality to knock opponents off the puck.


Defense:

Above average- Showed decent positioning in his own end, using his stick to take away passing lanes. Not afraid to play physical and throws some big hits here and there.


Best Asset:

Shot


Biggest Concern:

Skating- His quickness and agility needs improvement, along with his cuts and edges.


Top Tier/Role Potential:

Middle 6 winger- Best case scenario, he improves his skating and becomes a solid two-way winger who can occasionally score some goals and kill penalties.


Justification for Top Tier Assessment:

2W/3W


50th Percentile Tier/Role:

Middle to bottom 6 winger- This is likely where he succeeds the most at the NHL level, defensive responsibilities with penalty killing time.


Justification for 50th Percentile Tier Assessment:

3W/4W


Stylistic Comparable:

Barclay Goodrow


Scouts Final Thoughts and Additional Stats/Info:

Ziemmer is a two-way forward some nice puck skills and a quick shot. While he isn't much of a playmaker, he is able to find space for himself to create his scoring chances. He works best in the defensive zone, where he positions himself well enough to take away passing lanes and engage in physical battles. He needs work on his skating in order to maximize his full potential at the NHL level, specifically in his strides and edges.
