More on Everson & Iles

Big coup for Cornell on Andy Iles as he committed to his hometown team for 2010. Puts Cornell in the driver's seat for the top 2010 Class in the ECAC as he could very well be the top goalie recruit in the country for that birth year.

As for Everson, HockeysFuture had the following scouting report on him:

As good as Marshall Everson was last year as a junior, he’s even better this year as a senior. To start with, he looks stronger out on the ice and that’s reflected in his great play all over the ice. His added physical strength has also enhanced the power in his skating without sacrificing speed.

Everson is a very strong two-way winger who plays almost equally as well defensively as he does offensively. He uses his size and strength to great advantage, especially when it comes to battling for puck possession. He is a tough competitor who plays with a bit of an edge and never backs down when challenged. Everson is basically a player who you’d love to have on your team, but would hate to have to play against.

Two of Everson’s greatest attributes are his hands and his vision. He can make plays at high speeds and distributes the puck really well. He also possesses great stick work, which can be seen in the way he takes away open lanes and spaces.

Everson currently leads the Hornets with seven goals and is tied for second on the team with 13 points through eight games.
