Player Profile: Carson Gicewicz (2013 OHL Draft)

Carson Gicewicz
Nichols School
Year of Birth: 1997

Carson Gicewicz is a player whose potential reveals itself with every additional viewing. Gicewicz could be described as a physically engaging forward with skill. Athleticism seems engrained in his genes as his father is a former college football player and brother R.J, also at Nichols School, has been drafted into the USHL. Gicewicz has good size and likely has room to grow. Processing the game at a high speed gives Gicewicz palpable offensive instincts. Gicewicz has a powerful stride, good puck skills and a soft finishing touch. Viewings of him as a Buffalo Jr. Sabre seem to indicate a strong penchant for scoring key goals late in the game.

With the Varsity Nichols squad, Gicewicz plays a key defensive role on almost every penalty kill while being one of the youngest players on the roster -  a fact that does not prevent him from persistently throwing hits with purpose. His vision and puck skills allows him to hit linemates with firm and accurate mid to long-range passes. Gicewicz has committed to St. Lawrence University.
