One of the biggest and most intimidating players to play against in the GTHL, Giankarlo Cerpnjak is not someone you want to mess around with. Cerpnjak is an absolute unit on the ice and is one of the strongest players in the 2005 age group. On the ice, Cerpnjak shows no mercy and will catch you with a big hit on open ice as his size and strength will easily translate to the next level. Teams will love the fact that Cerpnjak never stays away from physical play and uses his physicality to assist him in getting his teammates possession of the puck. Giankalro Cerpnjak is more than just an enforcer on the ice as he is a solid offensive presence as well who does his best work in front of the net. His size helps him capitalize on rebounds in front of the net and makes him a reliable presence on the powerplay.  

His game is not centred around speed or flashy moves but, he does have an underrated and underused set of hands. He is hard to knock off the puck but needs to improve on his compete level and become a faster skater. If Cerpnjak can also improve on his shot and hand-eye coordination, he could become a deadly net-front presence that can screen goaltenders and won't get pushed around.
