Corey Pronman recently put out his take on Crouse in a very well done article over at ESPN. He discussed how players who are complete players in junior, guys who excel defensively, tend to carry that over almost immediately into the NHL. He brought up highly drafted players like Jordan Staal, Gabriel Landeskog, Ryan O’Reilly, and Bo Horvat.

About the author
Growing up in a hockey hotbed (Calgary, Alberta. And yes, I'm an Oiler fan), I decided to put my love and knowledge of the game to work. I started at five and am still playing today into my early 30s. By acquiring Brave Stick Hockey and rebranding it to Big Shot Hockey in 2023, I plan to teach people about this great game and educate them on the best equipment and history of the game. On a career level, I am in finance, running one of the largest financial websites in Canada, Stocktrades.ca.
