Nate Danielson's Player Profile

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - Dec. 19th: "Danielson is a stud in transition, effectively moving the puck from the defensive side of the ice to the offensive side of the ice. He sees the ice well, passing east to west or through layers towards the net front."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 14th: "A steady-eddie type of player who doesnít jump off the page in any one element. Is consistently playing against the oppositionís best, which limits his ability to produce at elite levels."

Matthew Somma - Smaht Scouting - Nov. 25th: "Danielson is a complete player that can defend, carry the puck, stickhandle through defenses and score. Danielson is still coming into his own offensively and as of right now, thatís whatís holding him back in our rankings."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - Nov. 15th: "He has the skill and hockey sense to make a lot of plays inside the offensive zone, while also having the NHL body and skating ability to make you think he will be able to make those kinds of plays at higher levels. Danielson can drive the play due to his brain, feet and compete down the middle."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Nov. 1st: "While his game doesnít have the dynamism of the other kids in this loaded WHL class, and his production hasnít taken the step early on this season that you might hope for out of a player his age playing the kind of minutes that heís playing, most scouts project Danielson as an everyday top-nine NHL center."

Nick Richard - Dobber Prospects - Oct. 20th: "Danielson is a well-rounded center with good size and mobility in the middle of the ice. He can set up his teammates with slick feeds through traffic or finish scoring plays on his own with his heavy release, but he is more efficient than he is flashy in the way that he generates offense."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Oct. 19th: "Versatile player who was given a ton of responsibility as a 16-year-old for Brandon. Plays both ends and wins faceoffs."

Steven - Daily FaceOff - Oct. 3rd: "The team isnít as strong this year, so a lot of focus will be placed on Danielson to keep this team in the playoff picture. Heís back, healthy, and ready to cause some damage."

Peter Baracchini - The Hockey Writers - Sept. 27th: "Heís always at the centre of the play as it unfolds. He provides great support for his teammates but has the vision to open things up quickly."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - August 8th: "Heís a pro-sized, hardworking pivot who can skate and excels in driving through the middle of the ice and pushing tempo with his energy. And while heís not a natural scorer, heís a better shooter than his goal totals last season (a still-respectable 23 in 53) indicate."

Andrew Forbes - The Hockey Writers - August 7th: "Heís a player that can make the perfect passes in tight areas and uses his speed to get around opposing defensemen. While he comes in as one of the more underrated top prospects in this draft, he has a deceptive release that makes him a dangerous player from any area in the offensive zone."
