Huskies Draft 2016by Dave Smith | September 26, 2016, 2:52 PM ET
At 6'5 and still growing , its the hockey sense thats makes this big man a offensive threat. Will play a second year at Univ. of Connecticut , were he is filling out his huge frame and score sheets. Father: Brent Thompson, Brother: Tyce Thompson
"He is a very strong skater with excellent acceleration and balance. But mix in his mobility with strength and tenacity, and you get a coach’s dream. Rubtsov is a “big play” center who preys on the weak, and his superior playmaking ability and vision enables him to be used in key situations regardless of which end of the scoreboard his team is on. He’s an extremely competitive leader who will involve himself physically if the game is in need of a momentum shift. " Huskies scout.

162 Ty Ronning
Dad was Cliff Ronning who played for Huskies in the 2003 -2004 season. A small but industrious speedster that always seeks to be engaged in the play. Skates very well and has the shiftiness to avoid being rubbed out. Isn't afraid of physical play, but knows his role as an offensive catalyst and plays to his strengths. Excellent hands and hockey sense. Only knock is his size, but that doesn't impede his compete level. Possesses the fundamental skills and natural goal scoring instincts that make the players around him better.
