Observations:

November 2017 – After a bit of a slow start to the 2017 campaign, Nic Hague has steadily improved in both offensive and defensive aspects of his game. Hague finished the month of November with 15 points in 12 games, and is firmly entrenched in the  top-5 of OHL defensive scoring. He is quickly molding into a complete defenseman, and based on his size and physical brand of hockey, would have been a sure-fire first round pick a decade ago.   Mason Black


May 2017 –Nic Hague is a hulking defenseman that skates well, can play a physical game and has offensive instincts as well. His skating is good, a powerful long stride, good edges and a decent top gear. His balance needs work and overall as he has grown so much at a young age there is some refinement needed. Defensively he is very effective, has a long reach and controls gaps very well. Hague is positionally sound in his own end and is very effective at separating players from the puck and creating transition. In the OHL he was able to produce offensive results using his heavy point shot to blast away at the net on the powerplay.

At the NHL level, his offensive numbers should dip, but he will still provide ample fantasy value via hits, blocks and PIMs.  Peter Harling
