Brayden Yager's Player Profile

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 7th: "Like Benson, Yager has been very hard to pin down. There’s a wide array of opinions on him and where he’ll go. Yager has legitimate scoring talent that took a slight dip this year."

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - June 5th: "Yager played center on Moose Jaws’ top line for much of the season, developing a decent playmaking touch to go along with his shot. Unfortunately, production and raw shooting talent never seemed to line up as he failed to reach 30 goals this season despite hitting 34 last year."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 5th: "Yager plays a threatening, attacking, puck-dominant game with skill in straight lines and in cutting sequences in transition. He’s got smooth skating mechanics."

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 1st: "His offensive tools are without question as Yager has good hands, a terrific shot and an offensive sense that rivals many players in this class. He has one-on-one skill, knows how to create time and space for himself and can make those around him better."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 30th: "He plays with a lot of speed and energy, showing the ability to carry pucks up the ice and make skilled plays with pace. He’s not the biggest center, but Yager plays hard, showing a commitment to making plays without the puck and winning a lot of battles even though he's not overly physical."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - May 29th: "Statistically, 78 points in a draft year is solid. He had 50 assists and showed he can be a highlight-reel machine. But there have been enough off-games to get some scouts concerned."

Jason Bukala - Sportsnet - May 5th: "Great hands and excellent vision. Takes advantage of time and space. Aggressive getting pucks to the net. His skating stride is fine, but he needs to add strength and discover another gear in transition to allow his game to have more impact off the rush."
