One of the USHL burners, he’s a winger and he’s a May 2000 (overager).
Red Line Report: Explosive skater with the ability to fill lanes and get up the ice quickly. More than the sum of his parts – works his ass off every shift, never stops moving his feet, and outhustles defenders for loose pucks.
The Draft Analyst: Blumel is an athletic pivot with breakaway speed who plays an aggressive style with or without the puck. He is a minute eater used in all situations, including the penalty kill, where he is as dangerous a threat as he is at even strength or with the man advantage. Blumel’s speed, edgework and agility are excellent. He isn’t very big, but he handles shoves and harassing stickwork with relative ease as he charges towards the net.
