Kailer Yamamoto's Player Profile

ISS Hockey - Mar. 20th: "Fantastic speed & exceptional offensive skills. Pro skill & hockey sense. Needs more size."

Jeff Marek of Sportsnet - Mar. 8th: "A shifty, dynamic scorer who has a great shot at winning the WHL scoring title next season. Lacks size (5-foot-9), but such a skilled player."

Mike Morreale NHL.com - Jan. 20th: "Yamamoto (5-7, 153) will create excitement. He's hockey-strong, can make contact and knock people off the puck, can protect it and win battles. Scouts like the fact he brings a game-breaker element to each shift."

Future Considerations: "A pint-sized, yet dynamic, playmaker… small, speedy forward with excellent hockey sense and quick hands…has a strong work ethic that keeps him going…great overall quickness, first-step jump to create separation and an ability to alter speeds to create gaps…sneaky and stealth-like in finding prime scoring ice…very creative with the puck and shows off creative hands…uses his size to squeak through the tightest of holes"

Dennis Schellenberg Hockey Prospectus - Nov. 9th: "A real good playmaking forward who uses vision, Hockey IQ and outstanding passing skills to set up plays. His passes arrive with accuracy and very solid power. Yamamoto is a very good skater, can accelerate fast and shows great quickness in his steps."
