Jamie Drysdale's Player Profile

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - June 23rd: "The right-handed shot (5-foot-11, 175 pounds) was named a 2019-20 OHL First-Team All-Star. He's capable of running the power play and driving offense with his skating and elite hockey sense. Drysdale scored 47 points (nine goals, 38 assists), including 22 power-play points, in 49 games."

Ryan Kennedy - The Hockey News - May 11th: "Drysdale is elite with the puck on his stick and he plays with a ton of poise and confidence. He was a surprise addition to Canada’s world junior team, but proved his worth when called upon."

Ben Fraser and Dayton Reimer - The Hockey Writers - May 11th: "Jamie Drysdale’s skating ability is nothing short of elite. His agility and balance are incredible to watch, and he can instantly take over the game using this ability. Even more impressive is his hockey IQ. He is one of the most intelligent defensemen I have seen in years."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Apr. 8th: "The gap between him and the next two best defencemen has shrunk, but Drysdale’s smooth skating and elite decision-making will still leave him as the first rearguard taken."

NHL Central Scouting analysis - NHL.com - Apr. 3rd: "Jamie is an excellent skater who can drive the play and push the pace from the back end. He's an excellent transition player, can make tape-to-tape passes on the fly and presents a high-end offensive game and playmaking ability that make him dangerous every time he touches the puck."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Apr. 1st: "A fluid, puck-possessing rearguard who plays with a terrific pace. Has his head up at all times, and can bomb outlets the length of a football field. Uses his brain to get a jump on bigger opponents."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 20th: "The right-shot defenseman is capable of running the power play and driving offense with his skating and elite hockey sense. He had 47 points (nine goals, 38 assists) and 22 power-play points in 49 games."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Mar. 4th: "Wherever he’s ranked inside the first 10 he is still the top defenceman available."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Feb. 5th: "His consistency playing as a top-notch player on a nightly basis has improved. He remains a mistake-free, two-way defender with world-class skating ability."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Jan. 29th: "Drysdale is an elite skater is just about every sense. He is mesmerizing as he patrols the offensive zone at times. His ability to walk the blueline, stop-and-start laterally and then make a beeline towards the slot, all with the puck, is impressive."
