Observations:

 

March 2014 - The Buffalo Sabres have acquired Hudson Fasching, along with Nicolas Deslauriers, in exchange for defenseman Brayden McNabb and two draft picks. Fasching joins a growing prospect system chalked full of promising young forwards so this move will certainly be a challenge for Fasching as he will have plenty of competition down the road. In his first NCAA season, Fasching recorded 12 goals and 27 points in 31 games for the University of Minnesota, placing him 3rd in team scoring. Brendan Ross

 


January 2014 - For the second time in the past calendar year, Hudson Fasching has suited up for the United States and been a solid force for the squad. After playing for the U18 Junior team (7 games 0-6-6), Fasching skated on the third line for the U20 team and put together some very solid games.  Skating in five matches, he tallied four points (2-2-4) on only 13 shots and finished a plus-2 for an American team that started the tournament with three straight wins only to drop their final two.  While Fasching did not commit any huge errors, he also played a very safe game and almost seemed timid at times. These may be the types of shifts you would expect from the third line but he needs to get aggressive if he hopes to move up the ranks in hockey. Fasching played an ordinary game when ordinary is not enough. Pete Richmire


April 2013 - Hudson Fasching is a power forward in every sense of the word. He’s big, has excellent puck possession skill and is hard to get off the puck. Fasching is excellent in the offensive zone and drives the net with ease, creating opportunities. He also has a powerful shot and soft hands that allow him to lift the puck with little effort. Fasching has a nose for rebounds and has no problem taking the abuse in the slot above the crease. Fasching combines his big frame with great speed up the middle and is hard to stop once he gets going. Defensively he still has some work to do as he tends to look lost in his own zone and gives up on his man way too easily. That being said, he is an accurate passer and gets himself out of trouble more often than not. Brendan Ross

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

 

Fasching has the makings of an NHL power forward, both in size and skill. His game still needs some rounding out, especially in the defensive department but he is likely to improve as he is committed to attend the University of Minnesota, a program known for producing incredible talent.
