Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "His puck skills are just average, and in viewings of him on defense this season, he often got rid of pucks not knowing if there was even a teammate in the area. Although his physical skills are intriguing, Geisser has not shown the hockey sense or the puck moving skills to warrant major consideration as a defensive prospect." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
