About Zachary Werenski
Why would a team from Ohio associate themselves with a player from Michigan?
What the Scouts say:
How He'd Fit the Wild
The kid has size that Chuck Fletcher and Mike Yeo covet, but yet he plays in such a fashion with his puck moving ability that would fit right in with the way the Wild want to play. He has the ability to quarterback a power play and the Wild could use a true quarterback on the blue line. His defensive game is solid that you wouldn't have to worry about him in the defensive zone. If he fell to the Wild, this would be the prototypical defenseman they would select.
