Quinton Byfield's Player Profile

Bob McKenzie -TSN - Sept. 16th: "Byfield uses his size, strength and excellent mobility for a big man to create offence for himself and stake out territory in the front of the net and down low. Byfield can make plays and score goals, but scouts will be watching him to see if his finer offensive skills - vision, hands, creativity - are on the same level as the other top offensive prospects."

Craig Button -TSN - Sept. 16th: "Combines athleticism with power, which makes defending him a very difficult task. Has the soft hands like Evgeni Malkin and may have the biggest upside of any player in the draft."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 2nd: "A physical specimen who blends exceptional power with a speed-driven, skill game. His quick hands allow him to maneuver in tight spaces, while the long reach propels his puck-protection."

Brock Otten - OHL Prospects - Aug. 29th: "He generates such power in his stride and just explodes into the offensive zone with what appears to be little effort. It's not that straight ahead speed that makes him so hard to contain though. It is his agility; stops, starts, turns. He can cut on a dime and it makes him very difficult to pin down in the offensive zone."

Ryan Kennedy - The Hockey News - Aug. 20th: "Heís got the size and the skill to be an Eric Lindros-type of dominating pivot and his first season with the Wolves was a smashing success."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Aug. 19th: "Sure, Byfieldís still bigger and more athletic than his peers in junior hockey. But heís going to be bigger and more athletic than people in the NHL too."

Craig Button - TSN - Aug. 12th: "The Evgeni Malkin clone has the great combination of skill, size & power and continues to push his game to higher levels. He has so much high end potential."

Dylan Galloway - Future Considerations - Aug. 5th: "Heís a powerful skater who is damn near impossible to push off the puck, and has the finishing ability to capitalize on the chances he creates with his size. Not only is his straightaway speed surprisingly good for his size, itís good for this class. He utilizes elite vision and playmaking ability to get the puck to scoring areas. Having all of these tools makes Byfield a top tier prospect."

Steven Ellis - The Hockey News - Aug. 2nd: "Whatís amazing about Byfield is that, for a 6-foot-4, 214-pound beast, Byfield skates with grace and confidence that allows him to elude much smaller opponents. He can completely take over a shift and has the ability to be a 40-45 goal-scorer in the NHL someday with a heavy shot."

Steve Kournianos - Sporting News - July 31st: "A big-bodied center with a massive wingspan, a bullet shot and soft hands, Byfield distinguished himself as one of the OHL's top rookie scorers before his 17th birthday. Already listed at 6-5 and 215 pounds, he won't turn 18 until next August."

Chris Peters - ESPN - June 27th: "His 6-foot-4, 200-plus-pound frame makes him very difficult to take off the puck. Combine that with his speed, and he's basically a freight train on skates. It's difficult to find power centers who play the game as effectively as Byfield."
