One of the biggest highlights of David Andreychuk’s game is his speed. The forward knows how to get to the high production areas of the ice and put up points. The St Lawrence commit will be a co captain for the Generals this year and hopes to bring the positive roll the team finished last year on ahead to drive this team to a playoff spot.
Generals Head Coach Bryan Erikson added
“Dave Andreychuk is an 02 St Lawrence commit who will wear a C for us this year on the NA team. One of the smartest players I have coached. He sees the ice at an elite level. And his patience is great both on the rush and in zone. Great PP and PK guy and we think he has a chance to lead our division in points”.
On the top line for the Generals, like his dad in college hockey before him, David knows how to use his skills to create time and space to score. He compares his game to that of Nikita Kucherov, a player who does a lot of things well and one that can hurt the defense with their sauce passes as much as their shot.
