1-time WHL (Central) Second All-Star Team 1

The core of Pickering’s game is what he does with the puck. On retrievals, he deceives, cuts back, then sprints to the inside. With head fakes and changes of pace, he mis- directs forecheckers and then hits a teammate up the ice. When he’s not leading the rush, he’s joining it. And that activation interacts with his projectable shot and exciting playmaking flashes. -EliteProspects 2022 NHL Draft Guide
