Nolan Patrick's Player Profile

Jeff Marek of Sportsnet - Mar. 8th: "Since returning from injury has shown that he deserved to stay atop draft lists. Does everything so well, not flashy but has a pro style about him already. Think Jonathan Toews-lite."

ISS Hockey - Mar. 3rd: "Exceptional 2-way forward that can play all 3 zones & wins a ton of puck battles"

ISS Hockey - Feb. 2nd: "Top notch center just returned from injury and has 18 points in 12 games."

Mike Morreale NHL.com - Jan. 20th: "Patrick (6-foot-3, 198 pounds) is No. 1 on NHL Central Scouting's midterm list of North American skaters despite missing 35 games with a groin/stomach muscle injury. The right-shot center is as dangerous a passer as he is a shooter, and has great hockey sense."

Future Considerations: "A lethal combo of size, speed and skill; plays a power game and possesses one of the most well-rounded skill sets in the CHL…has great wheels and is able to surprise with his speed…hands and ability to protect the puck is high end…plays very responsibly with the puck, but also makes something happen each time he possesses it…uses his strength and reach to guard the puck, driving his way around the offensive zone…a heads-up, confident passer…has a sharp release on his wrist shot and is capable of beating a goaltender from anywhere in the offensive zone."

Dennis Schellenberg Hockey Prospectus - Nov. 9th: "The Brandon-player combines size, skill and speed and possesses a very well-rounded game. Patrick is a number-one NHL center and there are not many flaws in his game. Makes use of his long reach and strength when protecting the puck and plays an active game, always looking to create something when on the ice. Can distribute the pass as well as finish off plays."
