Seemed to be his most productive spot in the USHL shooting from his off wing. When he did get chances during practice and games, he was a little indecisive with his decision making and there just isn't time for that at the level the Gophers play. Sometimes the less optimal decision made quickly is better than the right one after giving the defense time to adjust.trixR4kids wrote: ↑Fri Jul 26 1:17 amRanta needs to be better in terms of the buildup of offense at 5 on 5. He’s got a great shot and is a PP threat which is a somewhat elusive skill so he has that going for him. But at 5v5 he was kind of a drag on play last year and he needs to pick up his head more and make the right plays. Hopefully he can improve on that because he definitely has some of the tools to be a scorer.
Maybe we'll see some looks like these?
Brannon McManus - RF Scott Reedy - RF
Tyler Nanne - RD Sampo Ranta -LF
Jackson LaCombe - LD
Sammy Walker - RF Nathan Burke - LF
Bryce Brodzinski - RF Blake McLaughlin - LF
Ryan Zuhlsdorf - LD
If he can acclimate himself, Nelson would be a great add in front of the net on the power play. Similar to Burke’s role
