One of the most underrated 05’ prospects, Lucas Texmo is the total package. Texmo is a phenomenal puck moving defenceman, able to generate offence on the rush, as well as can facilitate well inside the offensive zone. Texmo has fantastic vision, able to see through the opposition and make clean tape-to-tape passes to his linemates. Never flustered, Texmo never succumbed to the pressure oncoming from his opponents, always making the smart play to put his team in a position to win. Texmo is a strong player on special teams, able to move the puck and find openings with the man advantage, as well as able to play hard on the forecheck and apply pressure on the puck while killing off penalties. Texmo has a strong mentality, doing whatever it takes to get the job done and win the contest. Texmo's competitiveness drives him to make big plays every shift, wanting to get as involved as possible every possession. Texmo has a great overall skill set on both sides of the puck, able to position himself well to stop the puck from getting to the net in the defensive end. As a defenceman, Texmo has an unusual ability to carve through the defence and create dangerous scoring opportunities as a result. His hands around the net are at a top-tier level and has no trouble deking out goaltenders before hitting the back of the net. Texmo has a solid shot while walking the line, a strong shot that can easily get past traffic and land on net. With his solid strength, athleticism, and strong offensive skills, Texmo is a diamond in the rough, just waiting on the chance to prove himself as the real deal at the next level.
