Sopa’s distribution of the puck was a standout theme of this game; he showed a great sense of teammate positioning, regularly completing no-look passes, and facilitating accurate puck movement on offensive zone entries. He was very physical, landing multiple shoulder-to-shoulder hits that felled his opponents. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide
