Denton Mateychuk's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - June 29th: "Mateychuk can use his outstanding skating as an impact offensive player but also knows how to utilize it smartly to defend. And while he doesn't have towering size, he's not afraid to play physically when needed."

Mike - Morreale - June 29th: "He's considered a strong skater who can lead or join the rush for scoring opportunities, creating chances with his ability to anticipate plays."

Peter Harling - NHL Rumors - June 27th: "Plays with NHL-level pace, reads plays, and is all over the ice. Chases pucks down and drives pucks to the goal. Has the upside to be the biggest impact defenseman in this draft class."

Jeff Svoboda - NHL.com - June 27: "He might be one of the best skaters in the draft while his vision and passing ability stand out on the offensive end, and defensively he's able to use his solid frame to play a physical style."

Evan Pace - Dobber Prospects - June 18th: "Among the smartest players in the class, his vision and playmaking abilities are excellent, showing poise to find the right play. Mateychuk’s versatility is really exciting as well, as he’s proved he can play either side of the ice."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 6th: "He’s already a plus-level skater, which helps him escape pressure with his feet, push up ice in control or trialing in transition, walk the line, and steer opposing players into tough spots despite not being the biggest guy."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 31: "Mateychuk is an undersized but dynamic defenseman. His skating pops, showing very quick feet that can easily transition pucks up ice with speed or evade pressure easily."

Chris Peters - Daily Faceoff - June 10th: "A high-end, playmaking defenseman who has excellent mobility thanks to superior edge work and skating ability, Mateychuk might not get as much love as some of the next-tier defensemen because of his average size. "
