SCOUTING REPORT:

Tom Pyatt:

Assets: Is an industrious forward with good speed and the versatility to play either wing or center. Is at his best when killing penalties or playing a checking role.

Flaws: Is not a big point producer, mainly due to a general lack of offensive talent, and is a little undersized for the National Hockey League game in general.

Career Potential: Defensive depth forward.

Keith Aulie:

Assets: Has a calm demeanor, and usually makes the safe play. Skates very well for a big man. There's also upside here as a physical blueliner. Displays a little all-around ability, as well. Can log bit minutes.

Flaws: Doesn't use his size enough. Needs to improve his coordination, game-to-game consistency and decision-making with the puck in order to make an impact at the NHL level.

Career Potential: Steady rearguard with a little upside.
