Get Your Funk Quips Queued Up


Michael Funk

#3 / Defenseman / Buffalo Sabres

6-4

Aug 15, 1986


 

Gillis keeps fishing in the shallow end and today he pulled up Michael Funk, a blueline prospect recently with the Buffalo Sabres. A second round pick (43rd overall) from 2004, the Abbotsford product has 9 NHL games experience and two points - both assists - coming back in the 2006-07 campaign. He's projected to be a top six defenseman but this is another prospect for the cabinet and likely an easy slot in for Manitoba.

According to Hockey's Future:

Funk is considered a finesse defender, and his game is based on his solid skating ability. He has a long, fluid stride that gives him above average speed, along with a knack for ducking opposing checkers. He exhibits an accurate shot from the point, and passes the puck extremely well. A sound positional defender, he often uses his reach to poke check and pressure opponents. Funk has been criticized for shrinking from the spotlight and failing to better utilize his excellent size.
