The Prospects by Sports Illustrated Internship Program

Now accepting applications for roles in Sports Media, Sports Marketing, Event Management and Journalism.

Taylor Bothwell is an intimidating forward that has a unique blend of skills. Bothwell is a high character player that is able to make a huge impact given his winning mentality and extra toughness. He uses his large frame as a key asset to be a physical hard nose player. Taylor is strong in battling in front of the net, tipping pucks, and screening goalies battling for position. He is able to create space for himself and his teammates to provide his team with scoring chances. As a team first player, Bothwell is hungry to get better. Like many tall players, he is working to improve his footwork and speed to become more dangerous. Given this is only his 2nd year playing in a AAA program, he has been on a continuous path of improvement and will hopefully be given the chance to continue and succeed in the OHL.
