Scouting Reports:
“Big and versatile center, Rasmussen is a competitive player who is a jack of all trades. Responsible two-way player and is a nightmare for other teams down low and in front of the net. Excellent goal scoring touch that can bang home rebounds in front or rifle in an opportunity from the slot.” – Brandon Holmes, Riding Pine Hockey

“A big, skilled forward who uses his size well…has improved his skating substantially from his midget days…for a player his size, he moves phenomenally well, smoothly and with impressive power…does a very good job of consistently getting to the greasy areas of the ice; he wins a lot of battles in those areas due to his size and reach…goes to the net and blocks the goaltender’s view while looking for deflections and rebounds…not flashy hands, but can carry the puck using his body extremely well to protect it…has underrated vision and playmaking ability…needs some work on his shot as he currently lacks consistent accuracy and quickness in getting it off his blade…just knows how to utilize his strengths to make a difference…uses his reach to disrupt opponents and get into lanes…willing to block shots…has a ways to go, but could be special and has loads of upside. (November 2016)” – Future Considerations
