Chaz Lucius's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - July 12th: "Lucius is strong around the net in the offensive zone and has an NHL-caliber shot that he used to score 13 goals in 13 games this season."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - July 12th: "He's been compared by some scouts to Lightning captain Steven Stamkos and is regarded for having one of the hardest shots among players in the 2021 draft class."

Hockey Prospecting - July 8th: "Lucius missed a portion of the year due to a significant knee injury. However, after coming in about half way through the year, he was really good out of the gates. If the knee isnít a concern I would feel comfortable taking Lucius inside the top 10."

Josh Bell of FC Hockey - July 8th: "But his playmaking has significantly improved as well this season, too. Lucius will need to improve his off-puck play and power in his stride moving forward."

Joseph Aleong of FC Hockey - July 8th: "A knee injury derailed the first half of his season and affected his skating at first, but his elite shot, puck skills, and offensive instincts allowed him to step in without missing a beat ."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - July 7th: "One of the best snipers in the class, Lucius had a limited sample size this season because of a lower body injury that held him out of the lineup until February despite the NTDP playing more games than the vast majority of teams this season."

Scott Wheeler - The Atheletic - June 22nd: "Heís not an explosive skater, which leads to apprehension among some scouts as to how his finishing ability will translate at higher paces."

Ryan Kenneday - The Hockey News - June 11th: "Came back from knee surgery and somehow became a better skater. Real nose for the net, great shot selection."

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - May 24th: "Lucius also chips in at the faceoff dot and makes up for average speed with excellent balance and puck protection."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - May 12th: "Will his outstanding 12-game stint with the USNTDP after returning from injury be enough to keep him in the top half of the draft?"

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Apr. 23rd: "Lucius has one of the hardest shots of the 2021 draft class ... A mobile and relentless player around the net."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Mar. 8: "His ability to score in a variety of ways is special whether itís a big one-timer or a cheeky move in front of the net. His hands are flashy and there are moments where the young NTDP star takes you out of your seat."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Feb. 22nd: "His very flashy and skilled with the puck of his stick, with a bit of a shimmy to him as he navigates the neutral and offensive zones. He shows competence defensively but will need to continue to work on the consistency at that end of the ice."
