REPORT: TAPPARA @ BLUES U16, SEPTEMBER 23, 2017

Tappara was held scoreless in this U16 game by Blues, however, Sorvali’s strong defensive game was noticeable. He was difficult to get around thanks to his strong, quick stick and solid positioning. His defensive anticipation was excellent and he was active away from the puck from shift to shift. The right-handed blueliner had good four-way mobility – played with good energy level and competitiveness. Sorvali moved the puck effectively under pressure, plus carried the puck all the way into the zone for a clean zone entry in the third period. Overall, his defensive play was what truly stood out.
