Owen Pickering's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - June 29th: "He's a strong skater who is solid in his end, handled his high ice time well in all situations, and showed some offensive ability with 33 points (nine goals, 24 assists) in 62 games."

Mike - Morreale - June 29th: "Pickering might have the highest upside at this point in the draft. He's a good skater who defends well with his feet and reach, taking time away from opponents."

Peter Harling - NHL Rumors - June 27th: "Projectable size and offensive upside. Pickering was a big riser in this draft year, but still has plenty of development needs in his defensive and puck management game."

Jeff Svoboda - NHL.com - June 27: "If you're looking for size on the blue line, Pickering is a good place to start. In a draft where many of the top defensemen are smaller, offensive-minded players, Pickering stands above the crowd as a two-way defender who can skate well for his size. He boasts an excellent slap shot as well."

Evan Pace - Dobber Prospects - June 18th: "Defensively, Pickering is able to handle physicality, reads the play well, and has quite the reach, so it’s just a matter of time before he develops his game in his own end. While his height is there, his strength can improve as he is a bit too light for the professional game."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 6th: "Pickering’s offensive production doesn’t jump out at you, but his long, effortless skating does. He’s one of the smoothest gliders in the draft and through his pivots and backwards crossovers, effortlessly moving from forwards to backwards for a player his size."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 31: "He’s a 6-foot-4 defenseman who skates quite well for his size and has offense. He can carry through the neutral zone to create controlled exits/entries and is good on retrievals."

Chris Peters - Daily Faceoff - June 10th: "A towering defenseman with excellent mobility for a big man, Pickering has a lot of tools that stand out. There’s some raw potential there as I think his anticipation and overall hockey sense still need to advance to make him a more effective two-way player."
