Highlights
1-time U18 WJC Silver Medal 1

Where most players outrace, he delays with a cutback or simply entering a glide and angling away from backpressure. Those delays house his playmaking, where he’s deceptive, precise, and identifying the best play. Uses give-and-gos instead of deking, and consistently occupies the space that maximizes his odds of getting the puck back. He’s a bull, too. Relentlessly attacks the inside, combining skill and physicality. -EliteProspects 2022 NHL Draft Guide

Father: Jim McGroarty

McGroarty shines in the offensive zone, displaying elite goal-scoring and playmaking ability. He’s a slick puck handler, EPRinkside.com 2021
