Cooper Rush

6 posts in this topic

Watching the prospects summit thing, This guy is huge.

Right now on try out but stands at 6' 7" without skates... 200lbs. I didn't see how well he moved, but his name is pretty awesome.

If this kid has a decent mean streak and well enough skating ability he could be a good signing as a depth shutdown big body d-man we need in the system.

Right now they are doing Q&A with shorthouse as host, MG and co are there, might be interesting to watch...

so WATCH IT!

Tried finding any info on Cooper:

The 67's most interesting pick was their fifth-round selection, defenceman Cooper Rush from the Mississauga Rebels. Contacted by the team yesterday, Rush confirmed he had grown in the past couple of months. The 16-year-old is now 6-foot-6 and 200 lbs.

"He's a project," said Rowley. "We'll see if he can get all his parts together. If his skill catches up to his growth, he could be a good one."

he looked fairly weak during some of the skating drills but that kind of size is very intriguing. At that age hes bound to be a little awkward hard to gauge what he could project to be.

Why is this in Canucks prospects talk at all?

so did a number of non-canucks players, should they also have threads in prospects talk? this should definitely be in general hockey talk.
