Scouting report

Chychrun wasted little time establishing himself as the number one OHL Priority Selection prospect in 2014. The 6-foot-2 defenseman could definitely contribute at the OHL level at age 15 but will have to wait a year after USA Hockey also denied him entry to play in the USHL as an underaged player. Chychrun is an impressive two-way defenseman who combines strong skating ability with physical tenacity and an enticing offensive game. His heavy shot and puck moving vision will allow him to be an offensive contributor from day one, while his defensive game is at the point where he will be ready to log big minutes wherever his path in hockey takes him next year.
