James Malatesta plays at a breakneck pace. He knows no other way. His motor has been stuck on top gear for years now, but he decided he likes it that way. The check-up can wait. He trusts his reaction time; he can totally outspeed and outmaneuver anything in his path. He doesn’t just motor up the ice with the puck; he chases it just as hard on the forecheck and backcheck. -EliteProspects 2021 NHL Draft Guide
