Max Pacioretty is an offensive forward who plays the sniper-role on a scoring line. He owns tremendous shooting abilities, although you rarely see him take a slap-shot as his lethal wrist shot combined with a world class release is his main weapon. Not the flashiest skater, Pacioretty moves almost like a freight train, using power full strides to reach remarkable top-end speed. Plays an underrated defensive game and is, thanks to his size and long reach, a valuable option on the penalty kill. (by Rafik Soliman, January 2014)
