Walker Duehr (Sioux Falls, South Dakota) of the Tri-City Storm has been named to NHL Central Scouting’s 2016 midterm rankings.
The NHL Central Scouting rankings is a list comprised of the top North American and International players eligible for the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. The draft is set to take place June 24-25th, 2016, in Buffalo, New York.
Duehr, a 6’2” 206lb power forward, is listed under “Limited Viewing,” reserved for “injured players who have not had sufficient viewings to be categorized.”
After suffering a knee injury in the off-season, Duehr has made an impactful comeback. In his first 12 games of the season, Duehr has tallied 6 goals and 6 assist. In a recent press release from the Tri-City Storm, head coach Bill Muckalt was quoted in saying: “Walker is a proto-typical power forward with a knack to score. He skates really well for a bigger player.”
Duehr has trained with Legend Hockey for the past 4 years, along with cousin Zeb Knutson who plays for the Minnesota State Mavericks (WCHA), and brother Wyatt Duehr who now is a skating specialist with Legend Hockey.
