Dawson Mercer's Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Apr. 1st: "Intelligent, play-creating winger. Makes the hard plays, but can also dazzle with his puck skills. Two-step quickness already showing improvements. Wears opponents down."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 20th: "Mercer is a right-shot forward capable of playing in all situations. Mercer is a smart, heads-up skater who finishes checks and is strong on the power play and penalty kill."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 6th: "Mercer, currently out of the lineup with an upper-body injury, is a right-hand shot capable of playing all situations. He's a smart, heads-up skater who finishes checks and is strong on the power play and penalty kill."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Mar. 4th: "Slowed recently by injury, there’s great elusiveness to his game because of his silky smooth hands."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Feb. 5th: "Mercer, currently out of the lineup with an upper-body injury, is a right-hand shot capable of playing all situations. He's a smart, heads-up skater who finishes checks and is strong on the power play and penalty kill."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Feb. 5th: "He’s less depended upon in Chicoutimi after being traded there from Drummondville, so the numbers aren’t yet what they were with his former team. Still, he is better than a point-per-game player with the Sags."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Jan. 29th: "Dawson Mercer is a high-IQ player who uses his reads well. He finds teammates with regularity and has a knack for finding the back of the net from opportunistic spots."

Brock Otten - McKeen's Hockey - Jan. 21st: "Mercer plays a lot bigger than his 6’0 frame, excelling below the hash marks and around the crease. Equal parts playmaker and goal scorer, he looks to have the makings of a strong complementary piece on a scoring line."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 4th: "Drives play with a lasting engine. Not afraid to hound pucks and is deadly in transition."

Will Scouch - Scouching.ca - Nov. 19th: "I want to love Dawson Mercer. I see the talent, but the consistency and data just isn't there."

Larry Fisher - The Hockey Writers - Nov. 19th: "Mercer is the kid from the Q that is really rising on most lists. He scored 30 goals in that league last season, so it’s not like Mercer came out of nowhere, but he’s been a consistent force this season. Mercer plays bigger than he is — sort of like Brad Marchand in that sense — and he’s got a real nose for the net with a finisher’s touch."

Tony Ferrari -Wings Nation - Nov. 4th: "Mercer is a high IQ player who uses his smarts to take advantage of opponents’ mistakes. He finds his teammates and makes sure the puck is on the tape of the most dangerous player on the ice."

Scott Wheeler -The Athletic - Nov. 4th: "Mercer is one of the better goal scorers in the draft and he has built on that with an increasingly well-rounded two-way game (though there’s still work to be done in that department, he does track the play well)."

Corey Pronman -The Athletic - Oct. 15th: "Mercer brings a lot of elements. He’s a very crafty offensive player. He can make skilled plays off the flank, but also shows no fear driving the middle of the ice. He can create for his linemates and has one of the better shots I’ve seen in his age group."Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Aug. 19th: "That will change this year when Drummondville gets younger and he’s asked to rise to the occasion. I think he’ll handle it in stride (pun intended) thanks to equal parts scoring/playmaking ability."
