Dawson Mercer's Player Profile

Brayden Olaf - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 30th: "A technically mature forward with laser vision and familiarity of the offensive zone that puts top defenders on their heels, Mercer has the potential to develop into a lethal top-six playmaker in the NHL"

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Sept. 21st: "Mercerís effective all over the ice by making a lot of little plays with pace and aggression. He attacks defenders when he has the puck. He attacks opposing carriers when he doesnít."

Steve Kourmianos - The Draft Analyst - Aug. 10th: "In Mercer, they would be drafting not only one of the top 200-foot players available, but one with a high motor who can provide speed, flash and pizzazz when necessary."

Chris Peters - ESPN - June 30th: "Mercer has great character and work ethic, but don't sleep on his skill level and hockey sense. He is committed to playing at both ends of the ice and can engage physically despite not being the biggest guy. "

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - June 25th: "His passion and energy are infectious. Possesses excellent hands and shooting ability. Built for the small-space game."

Matthew Zator - The Hockey Writers - May 11th: "Dawson Mercer fits the bill as he possesses a high motor, superb puck retrieval skills and excellent playmaking abilities. He can also play center ice, so that will make him even more valuable down the road."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Apr. 8th: "Effective at adapting his game from pace to puck protection. Plays with passion and a smile on his face."

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, thereís great elusiveness to his game because of his silky smooth hands."
