Fasching is a big forward, measuring in at 6’2.5″ 209 lbs. at the NHL Combine, though he’s more of a skill player than a bruising power forward. With his size and skill set, he’s the type of player that just oozes potential, and at times, he looked destined to take off and become a dominating force. To start the year, he was in the mix to be selected as high as the first round of the draft. But in his draft year, as the pendulum of what scouts look for started to swing from pure potential to actual production, Fasching began to fade in draft rankings. Fasching finished the year with just 11 goals and 36 points, which only put him 9th among NTDP regulars in points-per-game.
