[Proposal] Mark Zengerle - College Free Agent

Recommended Posts

Played two years in the BCHL, teammate of Joseph Labate, and is from Rochester New York (2 hour drive from Utica). Seems to be a complete player and has made some incredible plays at the college level. Here is a highlight video:

Scouting Report:

Mark Zengerle, Centre, Wisconsin (5’11″ 180 lbs): Despite NHL interest after both his sophomore and junior seasons, Zengerle decided to stay in school for the full four years. As soon as the 24-year-old finishes this season at Wisconsin there will be plenty of interest again. With 36 points in 32 games so far he’s had a fourth straight strong offensive season. Zengerle is a very good skater, with excellent acceleration and very good top end speed. He is extremely dangerous off the rush as he has the ability to change gears and uses this to beat defencemen. More a playmaker than a goal scorer, Zengerle has great vision, and is able to make passes through the tiniest of openings. His shot could use some more power but he does have a good release. Solid in the defensive end of the ice, Zengerle is a very complete player and shows leadership.


2008-09 Salmon Arm Silverbacks BCHL: 54 31 62 93

2009-10 Salmon Arm Silverbacks BCHL: 60 33 87 120

2010-11 U. of Wisconsin WCHA: 41gp 5 31 36 pts

2011-12 U. of Wisconsin WCHA: 37 gp 13 37 50 pts

2012-13 U. of Wisconsin WCHA: 36 gp 9 23 32 pts

2013-14 U. of Wisconsin Big-10: 37 gp 10 34 44 pts

A bit of a late bloomer (played his rookie year at 21). Averaged over a ppg in his college career.

His numbers are quite similar to his teammate Craig Smith, who put up 52 points for the Predators last season. In fact, his sophomore point total of 50 points eclipses Smith's 43.

Obviously a two-way deal, but I think he could play his way up to an NHL call-up next season and help our farm.

His numbers aren't really impressive for a senior, I'd rather try someone else.


???? He was two points off the league lead in scoring and played 4 less games than most guys in the top 10. Plus he is the only player in the top 7 who is not property of an nhl team. Plus he was first team all star.

What would constitute as impressive by your standards? Leading the league by 30 points?
