Contract

When he’s looking to create, he shows quick hands and a soft touch to navigate pressure. Some flashy passes and open-ice handling skill suggest there’s more upside, too. And he has a projectable shot, especially off the pass. He adjusts his feet to maximize his contact through one-timers. In one smooth motion, he’ll take a pass, establish body positioning on backpressure, and fire. Many of his placements are creative, like shooting in the direction the goaltender came from. -EliteProspects 2022 NHL Draft Guide
