Matt Irwin is an aggressive and vigorous two-way defenseman with a versatility that is hard to come by. His set of tools includes the mobility to be able to carry the puck with confidence, as well as an elite-level release on his shot. Uses his size well, but needs to be more consistently physical overall. Makes well thought-through decisions, yet is not all too quick in making them. When he makes that mind-body connection in-game, he comes through as an impact player who is hard to play against at both ends of the ice. - [EliteProspects 2015]
