Nick Czinder - Windsor Spitfires
6'5 - 240 lbs
Czinder, with his huge 6'5 frame, has power forward potential written all over him. He was passed over in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, but he did attend the Columbus Blue Jackets Rookie tryouts.
Czinder drew plenty of attention from NHL scouts playing in the USHL last season, mainly because of his size.
Obviously, he is a monster around and in front of the net but he has good hands as well. But Czinder didn't take the most direct routes through his hockey career. That, will make him a project of sorts for a team that can afford to be patient. Czinder will get his opportunities in Windsor to show what he can do but he will more than likely get third or forth line duties.
