Quinton Byfield's Player Profile

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 30th: "He uses his frame and physicality to enhance his skill by shielding defenders from the puck and forcing opponents into errors by applying pressure and leaning on an opponent rather than going to the big hit as many expect a player his size to do."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Sept. 21st: "Heís huge, his skating has become enough of a strength that he can push the pace through the middle of the ice, heís got excellent puck skill with his length and heís surprisingly creative for his size. Heís also one of the younger players in the draft, so heís got time to figure out the rest."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - Aug. 25th: "The left-shot center is a powerful skater with breakaway speed and an exceptional skill set. He had 82 points (32 goals, 50 assists) in 45 games this season."

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - Aug. 25th: "Byfield has everything a rebuilding team is looking for -- great size (6-4, 215), skill and tremendous skating ability. The 17-year-old said he has been focusing on getting stronger since his season ended, with the goal of being able to handle physical play in the NHL next season."

Steve Kourmianos - The Draft Analyst - Aug. 10th: "If Byfield isnít built like a linebacker by now, he probably wonít have to wait much longer to get there. Solid, fearless, and willing to keep the puck on a string for half a shift just to tire out an entire opposing unit, Byfield most certainly displays the traits of a future franchise center."

Chris Peters - ESPN - June 30th: "At his best, he is a dominant force with elite-level speed, especially considering his size. He thinks the game extremely well, with good vision and a playmaker's touch. Byfield's defensive game needs maturation, but his instincts with the puck are very strong."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - June 25th: "Great player already with great size and a ton of growth potential still ahead of him."

Ryan Kennedy - The Hockey News - May 11th: "You canít teach size and he adds skill and skating to the equation. He brought winning back to Sudbury."

Josh Bell - The Hockey Writers - May 11th: "Byfield is the only player in my mind that I could possibly see overtake LafreniŤre for the number one spot (he wonít). Heís a dynamic player that brings speed, strength, and one of the best skillsets in this class."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Apr. 8th: "Played in 10 games and missed 10 more after the WJC. Was starting to crank it up again before the abrupt end to the season."

NHL Central Scouting analysis - NHL.com - Apr. 3rd: "It's funny how some guys easily remind you of another player. I see Malkin when I watch Byfield. I saw Malkin at the same age that Byfield is now; that tall, lanky frame combined with great hands and hockey IQ is similar. He also has that quiet competitiveness like Malkin."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Apr. 1st: "A physical specimen who blends exceptional power to a speed-driven, skill game. His quick hands allow him to maneuver in tight spaces, while the long reach propels his puck-protection. "

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 20th: "The left-shot center is a powerful skater with breakaway speed and an exceptional skill set. He had 82 points (32 goals, 50 assists) in 45 OHL games."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 6th: "The left-hand center is a powerful skater with breakaway speed and an exceptional skill set; has 76 points (32 goals, 44 assists) in 42 games in the Ontario Hockey League."
