Portland Winterhawks’ Carter Sotheran a “rare talent”

PORTLAND, OR – Sanford, Manitoba’s Carter Sotheran began the season as a relative unknown, but the towering 17-year-old is aiming to change all that.

He was a standout in his first two starts with a Portland Winterhawks, a showing that seems certain to generate interest from NHL scouts.

The raw tools, however, have been there for sometime.

He’s big – a 6’4”, 200 pounder, and still growing – with a good motor, aggressive tendencies and plenty of scoring touch to go with his right-handed shot, a much sought-after attribute.
