Many have called Cale Makar one of the purest talents to ever crop up out of the AJHL. He reads and executes plays quickly, making good things happen for his teammates every time he is out on the ice. Stickhandling and puck possession play is superb. Makes high percentage decisions that help his team move the puck up-ice. High-end hockey IQ and understands his own game very well, allowing him to stay coachable and play to his strengths in any situation. Makar's potential is that of a traditional franchise defender that can do it all. [EP 2017]

Brother: Taylor Makar
Cousin: Mark Logan and Tom Lysiak

A fantastic skater… an effortless stride and light feet…loses no speed in transitions and is difficult to lock down, Futureconsiderations.ca 2017
He scans the ice well in all three zones and when he made a decision on where to move the puck, delivers passes hard and on the tape, Hockeyprospect.com 2017
