Ryan Chesley's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - June 29th: "A right-shot defenseman, he played primarily on the left side this season. He also played more of a shut-down role for the NTDP but showcased a high-end offensive game with the U-17 team in 2020-21 (34 points in 37 games)."

Mike - Morreale - June 29th: "The right-hand shot, compared by some to Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Ryan McDonagh, will play at the University of Minnesota next season. "

Peter Harling - NHL Rumors - June 27th: "Chesley is a big-time riser in the rankings this year. He has size, plays a two-way game, a strong skater with good hockey sense."

Alexander Annun - Dobber Prospects - June 18th: "He shows a keen understanding of where the offense will look to attack and he can anticipate well and quickly act to snuff out the opportunities or put himself in position to handle it. Chesley does a nice job transitioning the puck up the ice by leading rushes himself and he is not averse to jumping into the rush as the fourth attacker."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 6th: "I like him in neutral ice on both sides of the puck. Hes got a great stick. He can really rip it when he takes the five-to-eight feet available off of the line and looks for his own shot."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 31: "Hes a NHL-caliber skater who can transition pucks up ice very well with his speed. He has average size, but hes quite strong and physical."

Chris Peters - Daily Faceoff - June 10th: "His offensive numbers wont jump out at you, but Chesley might be one of the most well-rounded defenders in this entire draft. He is an excellent skater with tremendous defensive sense highlighted by his gap control and ability to defend the rush."
