Rychel says the 6-foot, 164-pound centre is an elite talent.
“Wyatt has all the skills you could ask for in a young forward,” Rychel said. “He’s an extremely intelligent player and a dual threat scorer and playmaker that is dangerous every time he’s on the ice. With the likes of Cuylle, Foudy, Afanasyev and others up front, we think we’ve got the makings of a dynamic offensive attack.”
