The Toronto Titans were an offensive juggernaut in the GTHL during the 2019-20 season, averaging a whopping 4.12 goals for per game across their 33 regular season contests. One player in particular who helped to drive the Titans’ offensive attack on a nightly basis was Nicholas Moldenhauer — a strong skating right-winger defined by his tireless work ethic and innate instincts on the ice. Alongside a stellar supporting cast, Moldenhauer helped push his team to third-place finish in the GTHL and a berth in the annual OHL Cup.


  • Skating Speed and Acceleration
  • Innate Offensive Instincts
  • Vision and Playmaking Abilities
  • Strong, Deceptive Shot
  • Work Ethic

The foundation of Moldenhauer’s game is, unquestionably, his ability to traverse the ice. Defined by his powerful stride, Moldenhauer can accelerate to top speed in a short few strides and boasts the speed necessary to force opposing defenders onto their heels. What’s more is that Moldenhauer has the speed and stability needed to drive the puck wide and around defenders en route to the net — this bulldog mentality allows Moldenhauer to create a wealth of offence for his squad. Moreover, Moldenhauer is a versatile threat, as he stands capable of firing the puck on goal or devising a high-percentage scoring play when afforded with excessive time and space owing to his vision.

Moldenhauer’s ability to stand as a capable and persistent threat derives from his tireless work ethic on the ice. Whether he finds himself in the midst of a puck battle in the attacking zone or a back-check at the tail-end of his shift, Moldenhauer can find the will necessary to execute plays which benefit his team with a startling level of consistency. A team-first player who doesn’t hesitate to step into shooting lanes to block shots or work tirelessly on the penalty kill, Moldenhauer is a well-rounded player who can be relied upon in numerous situations to secure results which directly benefit his team. In short, Moldenhauer is a strong, well-rounded player who can be counted upon to lead his team regardless of the score or situation.

Areas for Improvement:

  • Skating Stride Efficiency
  • Shot Release Fluidity

Given the well-rounded nature of Moldenhauer’s game, his skill-set isn’t in need of major improvements. If we were to nitpick, however, we’d identify Moldenhauer’s skating stride and shot release as two areas in which he would do well to improve. As mentioned above, Moldenhauer is a strong and speedy skater who can traverse the ice with ease — however, refining the fluidity and efficiency of his stride would allow Moldenhauer to reach top speed at a faster rate while reducing his energy output in the process. Secondly there is the release of Moldenhauer’s shot — although quick and accurate, Moldenhauer would do well to refine his release into one fluid motion.

Future Potential:

At the end of the day, Moldenhauer stands as an excellent young prospect and one who could very well enjoy considerable success at the OHL-level and beyond. As he continues to mature physically, Moldenhauer will become far more difficult to play against owing to his work ethic and innate offensive abilities on the ice. If able to further refine his skating stride alongside the release of his shot, Moldenhauer will quickly develop into a versatile threat at both ends of the ice.

A tremendous skater with outstanding intelligence, Delic portrays the Titans’ overall style of play through his non-stop effort level and dedication to both ends of the ice.

A pass-first center, Delic is a dynamic playmaker who regularly sets up teammates for tap in goals. He’s a highly agile skater and can be very elusive with the puck at top speed, weaving in and out of traffic and buying himself time to either drive the net or to find an open passing lane. Delic has proven to be incredibly valuable in all situations, quarterbacking his team’s powerplay as well as not only killing off penalties, but creating shorthanded scoring chances too.


  • Acceleration and Agility
  • Vision/Playmaking
  • Two-Way Intelligence
  • Nose for the Net

Delic’s greatest attribute is undoubtedly his skating abilities. He can reach impressive top speeds within his first three steps, and can handle the puck with confidence and creativity while he’s flying up ice. He effectively utilizes his edges to be a very elusive skater, going end-to-end or circling the offensive zone with ease.

With possession of the puck, Delic tends to have the mindset of a playmaker first and shooter second. He excels at positioning himself in order to create passing lanes for his teammates, and can thread the needle as well as anyone in the 2020 OHL Draft class. By always keeping his feet moving, Delic is able to keep his options fluid and is constantly opening up new options.

With that said, Delic is also able to find the back of the net with regularity himself. Using his vision of the ice, he can find the quiet space behind defenders to become available for one-timers, or drive the net and use a quick dangle or snapshot to beat opposing goaltenders. Further, Delic is as responsible a center as they come, consistently taking care of his defensive responsibilities before heading up ice to create offence.

Areas of Improvement:

  • Puck Protection
  • Physicality

Although Delic is already considered as an elite offensive presence and a versatile center, there are a few aspects to his game that could take him to the next level if improved. Both traits tie back to his strength, which could put his puck protection skills over the top and add the option of a physical presence as well.

While Delic is already able to handle the puck on a string and out-skate his opponents, the extra lower-body strength will do wonders at the OHL level for his possession potential, where time and space will be extremely limited. Further, the added physicality would only make Delic a more dominant two-way force, namely in the defensive and neutral zone to force turnovers.

Future Projection:

As a whole, Kocha Delic is one of the premier offensive talents available for the 2020 OHL Draft. What makes him such a promising prospect is the fact that his greatest strengths – skating and intelligence – will transition smoothly into the OHL level.

Playing the game at a high pace with tons of skill and creativity, Delic is sure to catch your eye on a nightly basis. A major reason why the Toronto Titans are considered amongst the favourites for the 2020 OHL Cup, Delic appears to be a lock for the first round of the 2020 OHL Draft.
