A game-breaking goal scorer that, despite his diminutive frame, thrives under pressure and is difficult to contain. Defensively, he’s uncomfortable having the puck in his own end for long and he’ll make the extra effort to pressure around the blue line and take away cross-ice options. Upon procuring puck possession, he’ll be the first to explode up ice in-transition. The hallmark of his game is his exceptional goal-scoring ability. He has a shot that absolutely leaps off his stick with pinpoint accuracy when he lets loose and a low centre of gravity that facilitates fast and flashy puckhandling at pace.

He affords his linemates options by taking advantage of any allotted attention he garners, generating time and space by drawing guys in; he’s perpetually hard to play against. All-in-all, Cole Caufield is an electrifying goal-scoring machine who makes some of the most otherworldly plays look like child’s play. [EP 2019]

Father: Paul Caufield
Grandfather: Wayne Caufield
Brother: Brock Caufield

Caufield possesses a quick-release wrist shot that he can fire with laser-like precision, at lightning speed past goaltenders, EPrinkside.com 2019
Even if one wants to try and dismiss Caufield as one-dimensional, his one dimension is the most important one in hockey — scoring goals, EPrinkside.com 2019
Perhaps Caufield’s biggest area of strength next to his shot, is his ability to find soft-ice, Hockeyprospect.com 2019
He plays with loads of energy and always looks for a scoring chance when hitting the ice, Future Considerations 2019
He has a very fast top speed and an explosive first few steps. He has extremely fast soft hands,, McKeen's Hockey 2019
