Observations:

 

February 2014 – A tremendously gifted skater possessing four-way dynamic mobility, Julius Honka gets up and down the ice more efficiently than any other defender in his class. Athletically gifted, Honka utilizes his elite hockey sense, ability to read the play quickly and poise in possession to control the tempo of the game.  It’s his swift skating that allows him to pounce on turnovers and quickly turn the play up the ice for a scoring chance. Playing in an undersized and underdeveloped frame, Honka relies on his intelligence and sharp footwork to contain his opponents defensively and isn’t a liability, like most offensive defensemen can be. Brendan Ross

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: B+

Honka is an extremely mobile puck rushing defenseman with a solid defensive game. He projects as a future powerplay quarterback and top four defenseman.
