Scouting report entering the season from Blueshirt Bulletin staff writer and author of The Prospect Park, Jess Rubenstein:

“Yogan by all rights should score at least 30 goals this season as he has some quality teammates to work with. Yogan has to simply play a simple game and not look for the fancy moves…If Yogan can do that then he will put up some huge numbers.” (Sept. 25, 2011)



What They’re Saying:

Elite Prospects – “A large center with good hands, Yogan is a better passer than shot. Still, he tends to shoot the puck a lot. Has had issues with work ethic and hockey sense.”

The Scouting Report – [Ranked 71st among 2010 NHL draft prospects, 48th among forwards] “Yogan is another player with first round skills that will likely slip a bit in the draft. He’s a great skater for his size and has good offensive tools, although his finish is questionable.”  (Spring 2010) – “Yogan looks to have a better work ethic that what was originally projected out of him, as well as becoming a great shooter which was said to be a weakness of his…Yogan looks like he could become a steal for the Rangers and develop into a very, very solid for the Rangers in the future.” (Summer 2011)

BlueSeatBlogs – “Right now looking at a depth chart of potential forwards in Connecticut it doesn’t look like there will be room for Yogan. That is not a slight on Yogan, he is a very skilled and talented young player, but I think the extra year of over-age eligibility might hurt his chances of playing for the Whale this season. If he does end up here, he certainly didn’t look out of place with two goals in his first pro game, and he totalled three points total in just two games. I think he would fit in quite well here.” –Brian Ring (Sept. 9, 2011)

SNY Rangers Blog Yogan is known as a goal scorer, with impressive offensive skill and ability. Although the Boca Raton, Florida, native is not the best skater, he has a very good shot and he has the ability to find open positions around the opposing teams net. During the 2011 Traverse City Tournament, Yogan created several scoring chances and it seemed that he was always in the right place at the right time for free rebounds.” (Sept. 26, 2011)

Hockey’s Future – [Ranks Yogan 11th among NYR prospects] “The center has a big frame and skates well. He can plant himself in front of the net and has soft hands. He is expected to play on the wing at the professional level, which is expected to begin next spring.” (Sept. 27, 2011)

“Yogan has a big frame and skates well. He can take face-offs and goes to the net well, along with decent vision. Yogan also can drop the gloves, although that is not expected to be his strong point at the next level.” (Sept. 27, 2011)

“After missing almost the entire 2010-11 season, Yogan is expected to return to junior hockey for this coming season. He is projected to be a borderline second line player and is at least two seasons away from being NHL-ready.” (Sept. 27, 2011)

“Andrew Yogan also made a big leap on the list, and I have to say that my eyes widened at times watching him play. I love his size and the physical game he has started to play. Going to the net, with a nice shot and good hands, Yogan is impressive. Now in Peterborough for an overage OHL season, he is a Rangers prospect to watch, because he could be a perfect power forward on the second line in years to come.” (Sept. 28, 2011)

The Prospect Park – “With 2 first rounders as linemates, Yogan just needs to keep his game simple and the points will pile up for him. Both of his linemates put up 34 goals each last season but more importantly they are unselfish players who put the team first and that is an area Yogan could learn something about…Yogan is a very talented player as no question he is a very skilled goal scorer (25 goals 2 years ago) but what we believe holds Yogan back is Yogan. Yogan wants to highlight reel play when just a basic play would do more.” (Sept. 29, 2011)
