Player Profile: Brendan Warren (2013 OHL draft)

Brendan Warren

6'0, 170 lbs
Year of Birth: 1997

Warren has already gained adequate height to compete at the next level but his style of play gives the impression of a much larger forward. A powerful skater whose above average speed is often displayed through his dedication towards a two-way game. Warren's puck skills make him an offensive threat but that danger is multiplied by his hockey IQ, sensing the play before it develops. Warren will often delay discharging the puck, waiting until all the pieces are set before passing or unleashing a potent wrist shot. His innate ability to slow the pace of the game with puck possession is among the best in his age group. Brendan Warren recently committed to the University of Michigan (2015).
