Shane Wright's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - June 29th: " Wright said"My mindset is not to win scoring titles, it's not to win MVPs, it's to win Stanley Cups. I believe that the way I play, my competitiveness and my drive to win is going to help do that."

Mike - Morreale - June 29th: "One of the more complete two-way centers of this draft class is a player the scouting community has been tracking for some time with what he can bring to an NHL team, including hockey sense, a sniper's mentality and leadership. "

Peter Harling - NHL Rumors - June 27th: "His hockey sense and read and react are the best in class. His compete level is very high. His skating is strong in balance, strength, first step acceleration and edge work. His shot is quick, accurate and the release is very sneaky."

Jeff Svoboda - NHL.com - June 27: "Wright's status as the presumed No. 1 overall pick has hit some bumps of late -- he had what was viewed as a very good but not great 2021-22 season, and three of our 13 analysts dropped him from the top spot -- but the talented forward with an excellent shot and a standout two-way game is still No. 1 in most peoples' books."

Nick Richard - Dobber Prospects - June 18th: "Wright plays a refined, complete game built upon outstanding hockey sense. He sees things unfolding ahead of time and consistently makes strong reads to be in advantageous positions, both offensively and defensively."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 6th: "There are times when scouts want to see him play with a little more fire and feistiness to really take over games and impose himself on the forecheck/in battles more, but his eye for detail off the puck puts him in a supportive role more often than an active chase and that’s fine."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 31: "Wright’s game translates because of his compete and direct style of play. He takes pucks to the net and plays quick. He can pull up to make a tough pass but can take pucks to the interior too."

Chris Peters - Daily Faceoff - June 10th: "With high-end hockey sense highlighted by his tremendous offensive intelligence, Shane Wright can make a lot of plays. While he lacks a dynamic puck skills in terms of handling, he has one of the better shots in this draft class with a quick, deceptive release."
