Joseph Veleno's Player Profile

Guillaume Lepage - NHL.com - April 30: "The center's excellent second half of the season allowed him to increase his value and rise to be ranked among the best at his position."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - April 30: "A fantastic playmaker who rediscovered his scoring touch after a Dec. 19 trade from Saint John to Drummondville, with 48 points (16 goals, 32 assists) after he was moved. Veleno (6-1, 193) has a great work ethic, is willing to learn and plays with a lot of pace."

Craig Button - TSN - April 28: "Very smart and determined with a solid base of skill - Joe wants to be a factor in the game."

Sam Cosentino - SportsNet - April 28: "Got back on track after being moved to Drummondville. He’s never performed at “exceptional player” levels, but he’s played well at every calling and should end up being a solid pick."

Steve Kournianos - SportingNews/The Draft Analys - April 28: "A quick-skating pivot with elite vision, Veleno is one of the best of what appears to be a thin group of centers. A midseason trade from Saint John helped boost his production and did wonders for Drummondville's power play. Veleno has pro size (6-1, 190) and is capable of taking on a leadership role."

Cam Robinson - DobberProspects - April 26: "A jack-of-all-trades player with a nice tool belt. Great edgework, acceleration, vision and puck-protection skills. Blazing fast in a straight line. The 18-year-old is already a consummate worker in the defensive end and is a very safe selection as he has a pro-level approach."
