Cole Sillinger's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - July 12th: "He's a strong skater capable of controlling the pace of the game with the puck on his stick."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - July 12th: "The USHL Rookie of the Year is a skilled offensive player with a great release on his shot, a high hockey IQ and excellent vision and playmaking ability."

Hockey Prospecting - July 8th: "Heís expected to go in the early teens but sure seems like a Top 10 pick to me. Heís relatively young (born in May), saw good production last year, switched leagues (due to the slow start in the WHL) and didnít skip a beat and had a great, productive draft year."

Josh Bell of FC Hockey - July 8th: "Sillingerís creativity is elite. His understanding of the game, combined with his vision, allows him to be a dynamic offensive weapon."

Dylan Krill of FC Hockey - July 8th: "He possesses one of the best shots in the draft, being able to pick his spot and beat a goalie clean."

Jacob Barker - Dobber Prospects - July 7th: "He is also a very efficient skater, as he is always getting to the correct position in all three zones in good time. This makes him incredibly reliable in transition scenarios, where he uses that positioning and crisp passing ability to move the puck up the ice quickly and successfully."

Scott Wheeler - The Atheletic - June 22nd: "So he can beat defenders one-on-one without ever getting touched and then when they do bump him, heís able to shed past and maintain control too."

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - May 24th: "Heís a powerful forward but also one with exceptional hands and playmaking ability."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Apr. 23rd: "Sillinger is a skilled offensive player with a great release, high hockey IQ and excellent vision and playmaking ability."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Mar. 8: "His ability to get his shot off regardless of the puck position is impressive, whether itís firing it from in his feet or extended out to the side, heís dangerous. As a playmaker, he has the talent to make any pass but often refrains from making the pass to try and create his own shot."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Feb. 22nd: "He is an offensive stud who leans on his shot and can score from literally anywhere in the offensive zone. His passing game is decent but he can have some selfish tendencies Ė although so would I if I could shoot the puck the way he can."
