The opinions of Seth Ambroz from the casual fan and the scouting community alike aren’t so different.
The talent is there, but something is lacking.
That something has caused the New Prague, MN. native to take a rather nasty tumble in draft rankings throughout the year. Ambroz was originally ranked seventh heading into Future Considerations’ preliminary ranking for the 2011 NHL Entry Draft in September after an impressive second campaign that saw Ambroz net 22 goals in 56 in United States Hockey League action.
Ten months later and just a week before the draft, Ambroz sits 49th.
And while he himself insists he has done all he can to show what he can bring, the hockey world expected progression out of the Omaha Lancers standout, but stagnant numbers in this third USHL season turned up red flags.
Which is why the potential first round pick will find himself in the second round, according to Twitter.
“Seth Ambroz a mid-second rounder, imo,” tweeted GGpX. “A lot of things to like about him, even though he has some big flaws.”
And those flaws place Ambroz firmly in the second round.
