Zack Nastasiuk's Player Profile

Strengths – Nastasiuk is among the most well rounded players in this year’s draft class. He’s a team first player who will do whatever it takes to win and lay it all on the line every shift. He never backs down from anyone and wins a lot more puck battles than he loses. He’ll block shots, his positioning is good and overall he’s excellent defensively. Nastasiuk is a very smart player and isn’t afraid to go to the dirty areas of the ice. His offensive game is good and getting better, too. He uses his strong frame to protect the puck, keep it away from oncoming defenders and is good when cycling the puck. He has a decent set of hands on him, can distribute the puck and can chip in with goals here and there, as well.

Weaknesses – Nastasiuk is an average skater, but there is room for improvement. He would benefit from some more explosiveness in his stride. He has an above average skill set but there are some questions as to how much offensive upside he has and what will translate to the NHL level.

Career Projection – All things considered, Nastasiuk projects to be a 3rd line player who can kill penalties and fit in on the 2nd power play unit. There’s a chance Nastasiuk develops into a solid 2nd line winger, but a 3rd line player is a safer projection.
