2011 NHL DRAFT: Keevin Cutting 3-game scouting report

Scouting report from 2 OHL final games, and one Memorial Cup game


Keevin Cutting (#2) is Central Scouting's 87th  ranked skater in North America. He's a decent, but not spectacular skater who engages physically; particularly in the neutral-zone. The 6'1", 180 lbs left-handed d-man has a decent stick, but prefers to play the body, and rely on puck support in order to win puck-battles down-low in the defensive-zone. Cutting improved his ranking from 122nd mid-term, to his present ranking over the final few months of the season. He saw no powerplay time during the games scouted, while seeing a very limited amount of PK time. He averaged a low grade of 59 through the 3 games, with a high-end grade of 68 during the OHL final game on May 5th, and a low-end grade of 53 during the OHL final game on May 8th.

Scouting reports are from OHL final games on May 5th and 8th, and a Memorial Cup game against Kootenay.


Overall Risk/Reward

Cutting had his best overall risk/reward rating during the OHL final game on May 5th. His work translated to a 3-game average of 0.45, while averaging 2.40 events per minute.

Neutral-zone Risk/Reward

Cutting had one game where his neutral-zone risk/reward rating was in the negative. This was a product of his tendency to go for big hits in the neutral-zone, thereby opening himself up for an easy chip by the forward resulting in an odd-man rush. That said, the neutral-zone is the only zone that saw Cutting win more puck-battles than he lost.
