NHL Central Scouting's Jack Barzee
“Derek Forbort has good top-end ability at both ends (of the ice). He's smart and skates so well, he's almost 6-5 and he's got everything there in front of him. It's just a matter of filling out and getting more experience. He's probably a top-two defenseman in the NHL if he reaches his potential."

U.S. Under-18 head coach Kurt Kleinendorst
“Derek continues to improve every day. He is strong on both sides of the puck, but his offensive instincts are what really jump out.”




For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
