Good positional awareness
unimpressive offensive instincts
not an out of this world passer
I live in Portland and just started following the Hawks. I'm not well versed enough to quote stats vs other top defensive prospects, but in the small sample size I saw - you basically nailed it. He's certainly a monster on the ice, and creates space offensively. However, it was rare that it materialized into a major chance. Every time he would skate up the ice with the puck, I would get excited, but he never took over the game. It might be interesting to see how he adjusts to the speed/size of the NHL
Hopefully this means even better things for Pouliot, who has looked pretty terrific offensively.
