Cole Perfetti's Player Profile

Bob McKenzie -TSN - Sept. 16th: " In Saginaw, the 5-foot-10 Perfetti has played both centre and wing, but NHL scouts seem to think the gifted goal-scorer is destined for wing in the NHL. Perfetti’s creativity is off the charts. Scouts say he doesn’t have blinding speed but he doesn’t necessarily need it because he seems to put himself in the right position to create offence."

Craig Button -TSN - Sept. 16th: "Hockey sense off the charts good and he is always around the puck and when he has an opportunity, Cole spells goal. Excellent release and arguably the best goal scorer in the draft."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 2nd: "This kid has ice in his veins and can convert from out high or down low. Reads the play, finds the soft areas and finishes with deadly accuracy. More quickness would be great."

Brock Otten - OHL Prospects - Aug. 29th: "His anticipation, be it as a goal scorer or a playmaker, is top notch. And he just has this poise with the puck on his stick that can not be taught. He'll work the cycle, keep his feet moving, and eventually find an opening that he believes can create a high end scoring chance. And of course, he has a fantastic shot with a quick release that makes him equal part goal scorer and playmaker."

Ryan Kennedy - The Hockey News - Aug. 20th: "Perfetti is a dazzling offensive talent with high-end skill and creativity. No flash in the pan, he tallied an impressive 37 goals as a rookie with Saginaw."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Aug. 19th: "Don’t let the five at the front of his height deter you either. Perfetti is strong."

Craig Button - TSN - Aug. 12th: "An elite offensive player who is an outstanding scorer but also an excellent playmaker. Sense & feel that is a 6/5! Can play centre or LW. We had Goal Caufield and now we have Goal Perfetti!"

Dylan Galloway - Future Considerations - Aug. 5th: "His vision and smarts helps him intuitively find open ice and exploit teams weak spots. His shot is essentially NHL calibre at this point and he’s deadly accurate when he gets the puck in a scoring position. His ability to put the puck in the net when under heavy pressure is some of the best in this class."

Steven Ellis - The Hockey News - Aug. 2nd: "Perfetti’s awareness on the ice allows him to make smart plays with the puck and he doesn’t tend to miss scoring opportunities in front of the net. If he can improve his top speed just a bit, he would have all the traits to be a star first-line sniper and could hit the 100-point mark in Saginaw this season."

Steve Kournianos - Sporting News - July 31st: "An exceptional set-up man with high-end elusiveness and escapability, Perfetti bested Byfield in every major statistical category the regular season, plus an additional 14 points in 16 playoff games. He is unpredictable with the puck below the face-off dots."

Chris Peters - ESPN - June 27th: "He has the vision and the finishing ability to produce. One area that needs improvement at this point, though, is Perfetti's top-end speed. Either way, if you have a season like that, you'll get noticed."
