Anselmo Rego is no stranger to finding the back of the net but, where he excels most is as a playmaker. He possesses a skilled shot with a quick release and enjoys the ability to shoot the puck. He does a excellent job controlling the puck on zone entries and likes to shoot it from far out to get pucks on net and hopefully create a scoring chance off of rebounds for his team.
