Matthew Wood's Player Profile

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - June 5th: "Statistically, Wood has been great this season. He is a solid finisher who can crash and bang around the net. Woods skating may have improved a bit this season but there is still a way to go for Wood to have NHL-level mobility."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 5th: "Hes got quick hands one-on-one, he drops pucks back into his shooting stance effortlessly, and hes got a beautiful curl-and-drag motion. He has also quite noticeably gotten quicker from a standstill and worked to up his work rate."

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 1st: "After averaging nearly a point-per-game as the youngest player in the NCAA, Wood helped UConn to one of its best seasons in program history. He played a leading offensive role thanks to his ability to get to the interior and finish off plays."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 30th: "Wood is a very gifted offensive player. He has excellent one-on-one skills and offensive IQ. He has the ability to hold onto pucks for an extra second and knows how to beat defenders with skill."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - May 29th: "A point-per-game average as a freshman on one of the best teams in Hockey East is a solid way to kick off your college career. All he has done at every level is produce points and excel on the power play."

Jason Bukala - Sportsnet - May 5th: "Big body power forward and net front presence on the PP. Leans goal scorer, but has shown ability to make sneaky small area puck plays and distribute. Room for more consistent 200-foot effort, especially offensive zone exits."
