July, 2013 – Jake Guentzel is a two-way center that has very good hockey sense and great anticipation skills. Guentzel won USHL rookie of the year honors with the Sioux City Musketeers this past season by scoring 29 goals and assisting on 44 others. He has a slight frame, yet it seems it hasn’t slowed his progress so far. It will be the main factor holding him back from a successful hockey career. Jake will join the University of Nebraska-Omaha in the fall.



Fantasy Outlook: C-

If he can put on some more weight he could be a very good second or third-line pivot.
