The foundation of Kamloops Blazers forward Josh Pillar's game is skating. He identifies opportunities to further his speed advantage by baiting the defender with changes of pace and hesitations, then accelerating once they reach. He's turned into a direct checker who forces poor decisions, supports the play, and occasionally gets involved physically. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide
