Tom Slaughter is a young and unpolished forward currently playing for the Bratislava Watchmen of the VHLM. Slaughter projects to be a first line talent, likely reaching this potential by his rookie or second year season depending on the depth of the team that selects him. Slaughter is also projected to be a top two pick in the S37 VHL Entry Draft. With over 200 practice hours already logged, the forward will be making his VHL debut next season. What should VHL General Managers expect from the talented winger during his VHL career?


Slaughter will likely eclipse the 1000 practice hour mark in his career. He also has stated that he'd like to play his entire career with one team if possible. The forward brings skill, leadership and a winning attitude to any team. With size and hockey smarts, Slaughter will likely become an elite scoring forward in the VHL.






-Leadership: Slaughter has proven to be an effective locker room warrior thus far in his career. Coming into a veteran Ottawa Lynx locker room late into Season 35, Slaughter was not out of place as a contributor. He later assisted the team in winning their first Founder's Cup in a number of years. Thus far in Bratislava, Slaughter has tried to assist new players on the roster with getting used to the VHLM. Slaughter has a strong desire to win, stopping at no cost to get wins on the board. Despite poor stats this season, Slaughter has played meaningful minutes as a defensive player this season.


-Hockey Smarts: Slaughter is a smart hockey player. He is big, strong and skilled. Slaughter throws the body, but does it in a responsible way, avoiding penalties. Slaughter looks to become an elite power play specialist and he will likely not cost his team many two minute minor penalties in his career. He doesn't look to continue developing his checking, only his strength and puck handling skills. Slaughter is also completely unselfish with the puck, obtaining an even goal to assist ration from the wing position. The forward will likely be more of a play-maker than a pure scorer. Slaughter is also sound in his own zone, seeking to continue to build his defensive prowess in the coming years.


-Dependability: Slaughter is as dependable as you can get in the VHL. Being represented by player agent Sterling Labatte (with four Hall of Fame players signed), Slaughter will likely receive sage professional advice and training. Slaughter looks to practice on a weekly basis and donate a portion of his time to charitable causes which will only increase what he can do on the ice.




-Unphysical: Slaughter doesn't possess much of a desire to lay the body or fight. Through 50 career VHLM games the winger only has 11 minor penalties. Slaughter will likely shy away from defending his teammates, but this will aide his team at times as well since Slaughter will likely become one of the elite penalty-killing forwards in the VHL. Slaughter may have to play a game similar to Gretzky, relying on other goon teammates to defend him when the going gets tough.


-Inexperience: Being a raw rookie into professional hockey, the learning curve will likely be massive over the first few seasons. It is difficult for rookie forwards to have an immediate impact in the VHL, especially ones with Slaughter's unique skill-set. The forward will be prone to frequent rookie mistakes during his first few years. Moreover, the forward may not immediately mesh with new teammates since he is a pass-first player. If other line-mates are puck control players like Slaughter is, chemistry will be nearly impossible to develop.


Unique Skill-Set: Slaughter will be a puck control, pass-first forward which is incredibly unique to the VHL. With a cap of 90 on his scoring, Slaughter will focus practice hours on passing, skating, strength, puck handling and defence. This skill-set could pay dividends or turn into a total failure. Slaughter does always have the possibility of completely bombing with new line-mates. He certainly hasn't had much success in the VHLM despite his overall greater skill in the minors. This player type doesn't have a lot of history in the VHL so it will be interesting to witness the results of doing something differently.

Content: 3/3 - I am quite interested in seeing Slaughter's production in the VHL, Your statistics have been rather disappointing in the VHLM, but I wouldn't use that as a barometer for your future success. You have a unique skill-set, and I hope to see it translate to whichever team drafts you.

Grammar: 3/3 - Excellent job, maybe a few comma disagreements, but nothing worth harping on.

second year season - second season


Appearance: 1/1 - Sure

Over 500 Words? 1/1 Yup

Overall 8/8
