Charles McAvoy's Player Profile

The Draft Analyst - March 25, 2016 - "He’s a confident puck carrier who attacks openings with speed, but can also slow it down and patiently weigh his options. Always moving his feet, McAvoy is capable of slipping through gaps without the puck, or stickhandling around traffic while keeping the puck close to his body. He has a heavy shot that can be delivered with accuracy, and his passes are tape to tape, An undervalued part of his game is physicality, which gets him in hot water as he’s still learning the difference between a timely, legal bone-crushing hit and gross negligence of the rule book."

Ryan Kennedy of The Hockey News - Feb 2, 2016 - "Scouts love the risk-taking of McAvoy, especially because his gambles usually pay off. The confident and mobile defender had the game-winning goal in the Terriers’ 3-1 Beanpot win over Northeastern."

Damien Cox of Sportsnet - January 13, 2016 - "Ended up getting lots of playing time in key situations with Team USA at world juniors. And impressed."

Mike Morreale of NHL.com December 24, 2015 - "The 6-foot, 208-pound right-shot defender already plays a pro-style game. He might not be flashy but consistently has been steady as a freshman playing a top-four role at Boston University. McAvoy has one goal, six points, 18 blocked shots and 32 shots on goal in 15 games."

Future Considerations - November 2015 - "McAvoy is a slick puck moving defender who sees the ice with elite vision and makes passes with soft touch. He is a very strong skater with outstanding pivots and edge work; able to skate with the puck out of pressure and start the rush. He drives deep into the offensive zone and glides around with his head up looking for his best options. He is a deadly in transition and a real weapon on the power play. Has a heavy shot and has the potential to be a big NHL point producer."
