A couple nice moves against Slovakia, also a boneheaded pick penalty. He's an interesting prospect

Thanks. I basically agree with you. I think he will eventually be a significant player for the Kings. He has the type of personality and character that Deano is usually able to fashion into at least a solid grinding player. The kind of players that win you cups.

Fasching plays the way we all hoped Penner would when he came to LA. Strong on the boards, drives to the net. He gets used on the PK in the WJC, but not yet in college (presumably because of older players).
Definitely needs to work on defensive details. He gets caught chasing a lot.
But he's a solid prospect. Now that I've seen him a few times, he is quickly moving up my list.

there you go again, using math and stats and stuff.

Agree. I watched him today and he is a big boy with broad shoulders and only has more room to grow. In this tournament (WJHC) he is dominant down low because of his size. Skates pretty well for a big man as well. Good future on him.

Didn't get to see team USA, hopefully I'll catch it after watching the Kings game. (But, Oh, Canada...)

USA won 8-0 vs Germany, Fasching scored a goal

He has been absolutely miserable for his opponents in this tournament. His size is such a huge asset. It will still be an asset in the pros but may be negated so he will have to continue to develop in all other areas. But in this tourney he is so much fun to watch with Matteau - no one can contain them ...
