CHN Avalanche Prospects Watch: Sasha Mutala, Kid On A Mission
In a prospect world full of Newhook, Byram, Beaucage and Timmins, It’s easy to forget about the other guys, the prospects who aren’t lit up in neons. Mainstreams often just tell us about who they want us to know about, not what we need to know about.
It’s easy to find stats and clips of star prospects. But when people don’t take the time to dig deeper, a prospect can pass them by. Literally catching them sleeping. The result: they don’t have the time or effort to create an individual opinion; nor a profile. The follow on of this is bad for the fan and hockey consumer. They miss out on valuable info, which just isn’t bloody good enough.
I mean, who knows who Danil Zhuravylov is?
Part of my mission with CHN, is to change all of this.
So What Am I On About?
Standing 6’1″ and tipping the scales at near 200 pounds, BC native Sasha Mutala isn’t small by physical nature, more so by draft stature. He’s having quite the season in the WHL with Tri-City, not too sure I’ve heard many crikey’s going his way this season, so far. So c’mon guys, saddle ya’ camels up as we go deep into the prospect desert.
The Story So Far, Sasha Mutala
Drafted sixth-overall by Tri-City in the 2016 WHL Bantam draft, Mutala was a prolific scorer as a youngin’ especially in the BCMML (British Columbia Major Midget League).
