Matthew Strome

Darren Walker

Brother of Dylan and Ryan, he is an offensively creative winger…not a bad skater, but should improve his skating and speed during his time in the OHL…has the ability and creativity to deke defenders and make them look silly…a strong puck-distributor who should use his shot more often as it also has some zip to it…plays hard in all three zones and will also assume defensive responsibilities…excellent hand-eye coordination as he bats down pucks and controls them in one swift motion…he doesn’t quit on plays and works hard to get the puck back if and when he loses it…will take the puck into traffic and drive the net if the opportunity is there…not a real puck magician at this stage and, instead, prefers to use his reach to protect the puck while in his possession…also more inclined to dump the puck in and chase it down over using quick dekes to enter the zone…his hockey smarts, size and playmaking ability give him intriguing potential.
