Dylan Guenther's Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - : "He’s constantly surveying his surroundings to find pockets and unleash his shot. Playmaking and stride form are both in need of fleshing out, but the upside is a 30-goal top-line player."

Joel Henderson - Dobber Prospects - Feb. 3rd: "His strength and ability to pull the puck laterally allows him to maneuver in tight and keep possession. He is one of the safer bets in this class to be a middle-six quality player."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Jan. 23rd: "Guenther is a highly skilled, elite goal scorer who is quick on his skates."

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - Jan. 21st: "Guenther may look wiry and slight, but he plays an aggressive in-your-face game with a dash of bite. He always seems to be in attack mode whether on or off the puck, to include the forecheck and penalty kill. Guenther’s style of play seems to bug the heck out of opponents, who also have to worry about his elite puck skills."

Craig Button - TSN - Dec. 15th: "Sublime skill. Fast, quick and agile skater with puck skills who can thread a pass or unleash a dangerous shot. Smart, attacking player who produces offence."

Bob McKenzie - TSN - Dec. 15th: "The 6-foot Edmonton Oil King scored 29 goals as a WHL rookie last season and earned a reputation as a versatile goal-scoring/playmaking forward. His projection is as a top-six NHL forward."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Nov. 27th: "The 2019-20 WHL Rookie of the Year is highly skilled and a point-producing machine."

NHL.com - Oct. 8th: "Dylan is highly skilled and an elite offensive talent," John Williams of NHL Central Scouting said. "He's a very good skater, quick and fast. He was a top-line player for the Oil Kings as a 16-year-old."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - Oct. 8th: "Guenther is a well-rounded player. He has very good puck skills. He can set up and finish plays at a high level. He’s a good skater who competes well off the puck and gets into the tough parts of the ice."

Ryan Quigley - Broad Street Hockey - Oct. 8th: "Unsurprisingly, it took Guenther some time to adjust to the higher level of competition. Once he did, though, he was nearly unstoppable. After tallying just four points in his first 11 games of the season, he exploded for 24 goals and 55 points in his next 45 games."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Sept. 14th: "After a slowish start to last season, he was arguably the Oil Kings’ most dangerous player offensively in the second half, playing well above a point per game and driving results as a shooter and rush creator who can weave through or past pressure to attack into his spots."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 12th: "He possesses good size and strength and his skating is above average. He is a highly skilled player who understands where his teammates will be and reads plays very well. His shot is very good and aided but a quick release."
