OILERS AT 111: ZACH NAGELVOORT

I had him No. 91 overall, the story here is the save percentage.

zach nagelvoort stats

 

  • ISS scout Phil Myre: Good size goalie.  Very competitive and excellent focus. Excellent quickness and recovery. Catches very well. Has a chance to become a #1 NHL goalie.
  • ISS: Nagelvoort is big goalie with the ability to stay square and always be in position. He has been a steady rock for Michigan this season. Seldom plays a bad game or give up bad goals. He has calm movement and can stay with the play, remains in good position with lateral movement. One part of his game that needs to improve is his rebound control, seems to have trouble at times fighting pucks. He battles well in the net and stands his ground when opponents drive the net. Shows a calm demeanor between the pipes and a big glove hand.
  • Stu MacGregor: “He’s a bit of a late bloomer coming out of the North American Hockey League but he had a tremendous season at Michigan. They were a middle of the road team but he allowed them to compete and got them into the playoffs. We look at him as a kid who will continue to advance with training there.” Set school record with 63 saves vs. Penn State in March.

    Interesting that they covered all three major positions with their first three picks. Could be a coincidence, but I wonder if there was some organizational mandate to get at least one kid at all three positions since they don’t have priority placement aside from the pick at 3.

    Excellent save %. Lots of time to mature in college as well. Who’s next at 130? Another center I suspect.

    Re: Leon’s nickname.

    We celebrate an inexplicable aspect of German culture combined with the natural acronym for a Hall of Fame Forward.

    Oh for the love of…DRAFT THE LATVIAN KID!

    Montreal takes Koberstein out of Olds of the AJHL.

    That screams local bird dog.

  6. dawgtoy says:

    I was saying Kulda, but out came … Nagelvoort :(

  7. Marc says:

    Three years before he’ll need a contract.

    A very good draft and follow.

  8. Lloyd B. says:

    Thanks for this. I thought I had heard we drafted Voldemort.

  9. FPB94 says:

    First time in a while the OIlers didn’t make a pick that made me want to flip shit. Then again this year we had no 3rd round pick to piss away.

    LoL at that Neal trade, it seems to be a custom to trade him for 25 cent.

  10. RexLibris says:

    Kulda and Mayo still there. Surprised.

  11. RexLibris says:

    Who is Liam Coughlin? BCHL in the 5th round. RIght on schedule, I suppose.

  12. skidplate says:

    Liam Coughlin

    North American Skater – Catholic Memorial, HIGH-MA

    Final Rank: Midterm Rank:
    Position: Center Shoots: Left
    Height: 6′ 2″ Weight: 175
    Born: September 19, 1994

  13. Tarkus says:

    Oilers pick Liam Coughlin at #130. 6’2″, 190 lb. C/LW from Vernon Vipers of BCHL.

  14. RexLibris says:

    Mayo to the Coyotes.

    Dammit. Good kid, I wish him the best. *sigh* There’s still Kulda.

  15. skidplate says:

    Former Catholic Memorial hockey standout Liam Coughlin has committed to Boston University, after de-committing from UMass-Amherst, he tells ESPN Boston. He will sign his National Letter of Intent and join the Terriers for the 2014-15 season.

    The South Boston native and ESPN Boston All-State First-Team center in 2013 is currently playing with the Vernon Vipers of the British Columbia Hockey League. With the Knights in 2012-13, the 6-foot-3, 201-pound left-handed shot registered 28-20-48 totals while helping to lead CM to a Super 8 crossover round game.

    He will join former Knights teammate goaltender Shane Starrett as incoming freshmen at BU in the fall.

    Coughlin, a 1994 birthdate, has 18 goals and 27 assists through 53 games with the Vipers this season.

  16. FPB94 says:

    Hahaha. Holy shit, that mayo guy has a name for the ages. Dissin’ mayo.

  17. PunjabiOil says:

    Why would you take Coughlin, a guy from the BCHL who turns 20 in September.

    A lot of lip service that the Oilers will be drafting differently under MacT, but honestly, what purpose did this pick serve?

    Sickening, when Mayo and Kulda and Irving all available.

    Fuck.

    Wins the thread

    He can spend 4 years at college before he needs a pro contract.

    Kulda has to go pro in a year I think.

    Draft and follow. It’s a good strategy for this stage of the draft, when maybe 1 in 12 players will have a career.

  20. RexLibris says:

    PunjabiOil,

    30 teams let Mayo fall to 132, so they must see something there that gives them pause, or better options on the table.

    Still think he’s a steal there for Arizona.

  21. PunjabiOil says:

    Doesn’t matter. You don’t take inferior prospects for such reasons.

    You just don’t.

    There is potential he will role into the oiler system at 23-24 years old.
    4 years from now.

    In our system and controlled till then.

    Hall-Draisaitl- Yak
    XXX-RNH-Eberle
    Slepyshev-Yakimov-Chase
    Moroz-Khaira-XXX

    wonder if there is room for a cheap cap hit winger

  23. RexLibris says:

    Gee, LT. Where’s the Vesel post? Come on, its been fifteen minutes, what could be taking so long? :)

  24. RexLibris says:

    Did MInnesota do something to lose their 160th pick? I just see a blank space. Did they go so off the board that even the NHL doesn’t know who they picked?

  25. RexLibris says:

    Baddock and Irving back to back in the 5th.

    Not a lot of love here for the CHL champions.

    You just don’t.

    He has a November birthday, does that mean he can go straight into the AHL this year?

  27. supernova says:

    Interesting pick. Seems reasonable. Clueless on Goalies.

    I come from the school of only acquiring them once you have an idea of what you got

    But also have to draft the odd one in case you get a kipprusoff or quick.

    Valuing Goalie picks takes years, unless they flame out

  28. Crooked says:

    There’s a nice write-up on him on Hockey’s Future’s list of draft-eligible NCAA players:

    4. Zach Nagelvoort, G
    Freshman, University of Michigan (Big 10)
    Ht./Wt.: 6’2″/208 lbs.
    DOB: 1/30/94
    Catches: Left
    CSS Final ranking: 20th among North American goaltenders

    When the 2013-14 season began, Zach Nagelvoort wasn’t tapped as the Wolverines starting netminder. But that all changed when sophomore Steve Racine was injured in mid-October. The Holland, MI native went on to have a strong rookie campaign, posting an 11-9-3 record in 24 appearances. Nationally, Nagelvoort finished sixth with a .929 save percentage and 15th with a 2.20 goals-against average. He posted his lone shutout of the season on Nov. 22nd versus Niagara, earning him the first of his two Big Ten First Stars of the Week honors. In Michigan’s opening game in the Big Ten Tournament versus Penn State on Mar. 20th, Nagelvoort set a new school record for saves in a single game with 63. Most recently, he was named the co-recipient of Michigan’s Dekers Club Award as the team’s Rookie of the Year.

    Nagelvoort is a netminder with size who plays a butterfly style. His outstanding combination of a large frame, great reflexes, and excellent play down low can make him difficult to beat. Nagelvoort uses his leg strength remarkably well in moving laterally and collapsing down low. One notable area where Nagelvoort made great strides this season was in his confidence level. He’s a competitor that played with greater calmness and composure as the season progressed. This allowed him to be better in his positioning, in the tracking of plays, as well as limiting second and third chances. One of Nagelvoort’s best attributes and one that scouts have taken notice of is his excellent glove. It’s quick and he can make catches look easy. Nagelvoort is also an adept puck handler and does a good job of steering pucks away from the net.
