Scott Laughton's Player Profile

Strengths Laughton is a good, physical two-way forward who isnt afraid to play a nasty style of game. Hell hit you, hell fight you, he will outwork you and hell never take a shift off. His work ethic and drive in general is outstanding. Simply put, hes a guy that players hate to play against. Hes a very good player at both ends of the ice. He can produce on the powerplay, play in a shut down role, or kill penalties. Hes very versatile in that regard. While his offensive abilities, and numbers, wont wow you, he does have good vision, a good shot and an above average skill set which should help him produce in the National Hockey League.

Weaknesses Laughton is a pretty well rounded player, but one aspect of his game that he could work on is his skating ability. His skating isnt bad, but some more jump and explosiveness in his first three steps would really help his game out.

Career Projection Second line (#2) center Taking everything into consideration, Laughton projects to be a solid line two center that can play in any situation. While his skill set is above average, I dont think he should be relied upon to produce big numbers in a primary scoring role.
