A crafty and quick forward, Dylan Richter overwhelms defenders and wreaks havoc on those who oppose him. Dylan, one of the fastest players in Alliance Hockey is deadly on the breakout as he has crafty hands and killer speed to blow right by defenders and put the puck into the back of the opponent's net. His hands have been described as some of the best in the age group by people around his league and are a threat no matter where he is on the ice. Dylan has a killer shot to go with his hands and speed. It’s viciously accurate and quite hard. He can make you pay from anywhere in the offensive zone with his shot alone. Dylan plays on his team’s powerplay and commonly uses the extra space to take shots and open up space for himself. He is actively working on his playmaking skills as he has a shoot-first mentality which sometimes is not the best option. In his own zone, he is a responsible player who is still developing like many young forwards. Dylan is great with his stick and often breaks up passes and explodes down the ice however sometimes he tries to use his hands a little too much and gives the puck up. Dylan is the typical young forward and with experience and growth has all the tools to turn into a Patrick Kane type player at the next level.
