A reliable, right shot defenseman, Parker von Richter was amongst the defensemen invited to the GTHL Top Prospects game earlier this season. Von Richter tends to compare himself to someone like two time Stanley Cup winner and former Norris winner, Victor Hedman, thanks to his highly praised two-way game. Von Richter is extremely confident in his abilities as a defenseman, and can be very versatile given the situation. The Hedman comparable really comes into play when you look at his statline, when you see that von Richter was 4th in defensive scoring on his team, with a total of 30 points in 46 regular season games, as well as a further 2 in 5 OHL cup games. At the 2022 OHL draft, von Richter will be highly sought after by teams, as a big, two-way, right shot defenseman is rare to come by, and eventually the offer will simply be too good to pass up on. While von Richter could benefit from another year of development before stepping into the OHL, he could eventually develop towards being a proper top 4 defenseman, who can play a part in the teams special teams efforts as well.
