Sanderson recognizes appropriate times to join the rush and pinches on opposing wingers well, sealing off pass options along the boards to prevent breakouts. He's got a quick wrister as well that can create havoc. He's calculated, disciplined, physical, and creative. There just isn't much that he can't do in the defensive zone at an exceptionally high level. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide
