Kevin Korchinski's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - June 29th: "He led WHL rookie defensemen with 65 points (four goals, 61 assists) in 67 games and his playmaking ability ranks among the best at his position in this year's draft."

Mike - Morreale - June 29th: "He was second among WHL defensemen with 61 assists and was the first defenseman in the league since Darryl Sydor in 1989-90 (Kamloops, 66 assists) to have 60 or more assists in his first year of NHL draft eligibility."

Peter Harling - NHL Rumors - June 27th: "He has size, skates at an NHL level now, and excels at transitional offense. The knock early in the year was in his own end but as the season wore on, he erased those concerns."

Jeff Svoboda - NHL.com - June 27: "His offensive ability includes has good vision and puck-moving skills, but physicality and defensive poise will be areas of improvement as he matures. "

Evan Pace - Dobber Prospects - June 18th: " His long reach aids him in puck protection, and he is one of the highest users of the cutback in this class, always baiting defenders one way before turning and cutting back to find open space. Still, he struggles to gain good separation with these crossovers, but mostly when it comes to his behind-the-net play."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 6th: "He lives and dies trying to guide play with and without the puck with his mobility, pivots and directional changes. He can take over a game with his ability to transport the puck and roam."

Chris Peters - Daily Faceoff - June 10th: "Once he fills out, I think his defending will become more effective and he can hold his own better along the walls and in the tough areas of the ice. Either way, a 6-foot-2 defenseman with fluid mobility and skills is an especially enticing option in the top half of the first round."
