"Stefan back-checks hard and is very responsible defensively. He plays a high-energy, two-way game … he is smart and aggressive, makes good decisions."
Plymouth head coach Mike Vellucci
“The bigger the game, the better he plays. He plays big in the big games and there's not a lot of guys like that. (Noesen's) hands are phenomenal, he works on them constantly. His scoring and his playmaking are two areas that we rely on the most. He has a very high hockey I.Q. He wants to be in that pressure-cooker moment where he is relied upon. He actually looks forward to it. When the game is on the line, he wants to be involved. He is the ultimate competitor."
