2011 NHL draft: Rieder / Landeskog

Kitchener's Tobias Rieder landed a higher grade than teammate Gabriel Landeskog during a 3-2 loss to the Owen Sound Attack on March 11th.

Although Landeskog won substantially more puck-battles than Rieder, it was Rieder's higher winning percentage that landed him the higher grade. Keep in mind that this is a one game grade and does not mean that Rieder is the better prospect or player than Landeskog. It is simply a one-game grade. It takes multiple games to demonstrate any long-term tendancies or strengths.

Landeskog is a 6'1', 207 lbs left-handed winger who was ranked as the number 1 North American skater by Central Scouting (mid-term). Landeskog has superior size and strength, with great hands to go along with his offensive instincts. He is the third-best scorer on the Rangers with 64 points in 50 games, to go along with a plus-31 rating, and 59 minutes in penalties.

The 5'10", 169 lbs Rieder was the 74th ranked North American skater in the CSB's mid-term ranking. He is an undersized, but quick skater who wins puck-battles with speed and a good stick, rather than size and strength. He has 49 points in 62 games, while maintaining a plus-10 rating and 33 minutes in penalties.

Period-by-period

Landeskog's grade fell 21 percentage points through the final 2 periods, while Rieder's improved 7 points over the same span.

Individual stats

Rieder won 11 of 14 offensive-zone puck-battles, and 20 of 26 puck-battles overall. He won his battles with speed and skill. He has a great stick and decent instincts. His 5 defensive-zone give-aways are as much a product of his implication in the defensive-zone as they are mental errors.

Landeskog was more involved in the game than Rieder. He has 23 more metric entries than his teammate, and 3 less defensive-zone give-aways. Number 92 couldn't create offense because he was unable to win more than 1 successive puck-battle in the offensive-zone. The most suprising statistic of the game was Landeskog winning percentage when engaging in offensive-zone puck-battles. He won only 48 percent of his OZPBs, but won 75% of battles taking place in the other 2 zones.
