Connor Hurley's Player Profile

Hurley is the top high school prospect in this draft class. He possesses many high-upside tools, and he could be 5-10 spots higher on my rankings if not for the conservatism I tend to apply to high school prospects. He is an above-average skater, arguably high end, with great speed and acceleration. He is a skilled individual with the puck as well, displaying a high level of creativity and playmaking vision. Hurley processes the game well, making quick reads. He can flourish when he is given space. He plays a decent power game, as he will muscle off checks and make power moves, but he could stand to gain some strength. One NHL scout says that he tends to play too much on the perimeter. He is certainly a player who a team may look towards for significant upside, but he will likely take a while to develop. He is committed to attend Notre Dame in the fall.

May end up being the youngest player drafted… Committed to Notre Dame and may end up playing a year with Muskegon (USHL)… Lanky centre with high-end vision and playmaking… Needs to show he can handle rigors of higher levels and tighter checking… Will benefit from NCAA development.

He is a good skater/explosive with speed and quite solid on his skates. Like most players could use more strength. He showed moves and some good stick handling. Believe his niche is being a good play maker as he is smart with puck, protects it well, and likes to set-up teammates with passes. Lead all players at camp with 6 assists.
