Quinton Byfield's Player Profile

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 4th: "Exhibits the ability to play in all three zones. Is extremely agile for his size, yet he has plenty of room on his frame to add strength."

Will Scouch - Scouching.ca - Nov. 19th: "Quinton Byfield is a player who could turn into an Evgeni Malkin-type big centre with tremendous skating ability and skill. He's a lethal scorer and a bit more of an offensively-focused game, but to me, he has tremendous upside."

Ryan Kennedy - The Hockey News - Nov. 10th: "Big kid with a hard shot and a ton of skill. What else do you want? Oh, he’s also a center and the OHL’s top scorer."

Tony Ferrari -Wings Nation - Nov. 4th: "Byfield’s skating ability is almost unfair for a player of his size. His ability to transition the puck from his own zone to the offensive zone is remarkable and he does a great job of identifying the opening on a play."

Scott Wheeler -The Athletic - Nov. 4th: "He always had serious talent as a puck carrier for his size (more than 210 pounds these days), high-end puck protection skill, strong playmaking ability, size and impressive finishing touch around the net."

Chris Peters -ESPN - Oct. 22nd: "The comparisons that Byfield has drawn to Eric Lindros are lofty, but it's hard not to be enamored with his 6-foot-4, 215-pound frame, especially when he moves as quickly as he does. Byfield also has an excellent shot, allowing him to score from distance, on top of his ability to drive the net for close-range chances."

Corey Pronman -The Athletic - Oct. 15th: "I wouldn’t call his offensive skill level as elite as a player like Lafreniere, but Byfield is a bigger, faster player who also plays center, so that will be the focus of the debate going forward."

Sam Cosentino -Sportsnet - Oct. 2nd: "Having a big body down the middle of the ice is essential in the NHL game. Byfield comes in at 6-foot-4, 214 pounds and was already nearly a point-per-game player last season."

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."
