Cole Sillinger's Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - : "Heís been so-so in the USHL this season and the skating needs some work, but the manipulation and anticipation are gold."

Joel Henderson - Dobber Prospects - Feb. 3rd: "If you believe Sillinger can be a weapon on an NHL powerplay and his speed wonít hinder his line at 5on5, then you rate him top-10. If not, then it is Kaliyev territory."

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

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - Jan. 21st: "Sillinger has deceptive speed and he can change gears for a straight-line route to the net. It is in these situations where Sillingerís strength on the puck can be impressive, especially with a bigger defender draped over his back."

Craig Button - TSN - Dec. 15th: "In the middle of so many positive things on the ice because he's so smart and astute. There may not be a lot of flash but there's significant substance and very good skill."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Nov. 27th: "Another son of a former NHLer (Mike). Cole plays a hungry game and has a knack for finishing."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - Oct. 8th: "From inside the offensive blue line, Sillinger is dangerous. He has a good stick and can make skilled plays, but heís very dangerous as a passer and shooter. He can score from range, and has the skill and the willingness to score around the net area too."

Ryan Quigley - Broad Street Hockey - Oct. 8th: "Sillinger, the son of former Flyers forward Mike Sillinger, was impressive for Medicine Hat as a first-year WHLer. Despite missing a decent chunk of the Tigersí season with an upper-body injury, he still ranked fourth in the WHL in rookie scoring with 53 points (22 goals, 31 assists)."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Sept. 14th: "Heís not the greatest skater in the world but heís as talented as just about any forward in this draft class with the puck, both one-on-one and in high traffic. His ability to create through or past pressure is borderline elite and heís equal parts scorer (excellent wrist shot and one-on-one finisher) and playmaker (able to use attention as a tool for facilitation)."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 12th: "He has a sturdy frame and excellent strength at this stage of development. His offensive game flows through his NHL-level shot. He plays with confidence at both ends of the ice and although his defensive game will need to get more consistent he showed promise at times."
