Cale Makar's Player Profile

Craig Button TSN - May 8th"Im not saying hes Erik Karlsson because were talking about a superstar and one of the great defencemen of his era, but (Makar) plays the game like that," TSN prospect analyst Craig Button said. "Hes dynamic into the attack with the puck, making plays. Hes really, really top-notch. I think everything he has translates to the next level. I dont worry that hes in the AJHL. Its not a negative for me."

ISS Hockey - Mar. 14th: "Controls the play when he has the puck. Has the ability to make a great pass or carry the puck."

Peter Harling Dobber Prospects - Mar. 19th: "He is a dynamic offensive player with speed to burn and is very competitive. Makar has great hockey sense and reads plays well making good decisions when to join a rush. He is and undersized player and needs to add strength and learn to be effective defensively and physically despite being undersized. Makar has committed to play College hockey next year for UMass in the NCAA where he can work on his strength and play against older and stronger competition."

Jeff Marek of Sportsnet - Mar. 8th: "Elusive and agile, can skate the puck out of trouble. Processes the game quickly and can run a power play."

ISS Hockey - Feb. 13th: "Has great explosiveness & is always in motion. Finds open ice incredibly well. Could go Top 10."

Mike Morreale NHL.com - Jan. 20th: "Makar (5-11, 179), winner of the 2015-16 Alberta Junior Hockey League and Canadian Junior Hockey League Rookie of the Year, has continued his stellar play and development. He's a dynamic skater with quickness and elusiveness with or without the puck."
