Rutger McGroarty's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - June 29th: "His shot and hockey sense are NHL caliber, and his coach compared him to New York Islanders forward Anders Lee. McGroarty's skating also got better from last season to this season, and projects to keep improving as he continues to develop physically."

Mike - Morreale - June 29th: "A versatile player with great leadership skills, McGroarty (6-1, 204) thinks the game at a high level, will shoot the puck and competes all over the ice."

Peter Harling - NHL Rumors - June 27th: "The Michigan commit has size, skill, hockey sense, is a net front presence, plays a physical and two-way game. His biggest development need is his skating, but he plays the game like a Tkachuk."

Jeff Svoboda - NHL.com - June 27: "He's continued to move up draft boards with every puck he's put in the net, as McGroarty can score with both his shot and by getting to the hard areas with his powerful build. His skating has come a long way as well even if there's more room to improve."

Nick Richard - Dobber Prospects - June 18th: "McGroarty is strong along the wall, will lay the body on the forecheck, and can make plays off the boards into middle ice with refined puck protection skills and dextrous hands. The only real knocks on McGroarty are his heavy feet and lack of high-end pace but he has the IQ and work ethic to continue improving in those areas."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 6th: "Hes got raw skill that shows up in his great hands. His finishing touch around the net is there in spades, with a hard one-touch shot that he leverages his strong frame to power through from a low kick."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 31: "McGroarty is a highly-skilled winger who is a threat inside the offensive zone because of his very good puck skills, shot and vision. He can make a lot of plays with finesse, but also is highly competitive."

Chris Peters - Daily Faceoff - June 10th: "McGroarty has got the size, hes got the work ethic, the character and goal-scoring ability to be a long-term impact player. The main drawback in his game is his footspeed, which is definitely a concern among NHL sources."
