Riley Heidt's Player Profile

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - Dec. 19th: "Heís consistently looking to exploit holes and show off his passing creativity, throwing pucks cross-body or through a defender's legs as if itís a routine play. He has a bomb for a one-timer that makes him a legitimate scoring weapon, especially on the power play."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 14th: "Doesnít get enough credit for his ability to shoot the puck, which may be because he is so good at distributing that he misses shot opportunities."

Ben Jordan - Smaht Scouting - Nov. 25th: "Riley Heidt is one of the more premier skaters in this 2023 class. He has extremely great edges and accelerates very quickly in all zones. Heidt excels with the puck on his stick when heís using his skating ability to create separation from defenders."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Nov. 1st: "Heís the go-to center for the Cougars in the faceoff circle. Heís also a strong skater who is light on his edges, builds speed quickly into flight to put defenders on their heels and/or create separation, leads a lot of neutral-zone carries into entries, and makes plays into space for himself or his linemates at pace."

Nick Richard - Dobber Prospects - Oct. 20th: "Energetic and creative, he excels in transition and as a playmaker with the puck on his stick in the offensive zone. He is a strong skater, processes the game at a high-rate, and has the skill to execute with pace and create offense."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Oct. 19th: "Plays with a chip on his shoulder by being in a smaller market and not getting the same love as his WHL counterparts."

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: "Iím absolutely captivated at how smart Heidt is and how quickly he is able to process the game. Everything he does, he does it with pace and executes plays flawlessly with his awareness and creativity."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - August 8th: "Heís also a strong skater who is light on his edges, builds speed quickly into flight to put defenders on their heels and/or create separation, leads a lot of neutral-zone carries into entries, and makes plays into space for himself or his linemates at pace."

Brook Otten - McKeen's Hockey - July 26th: "Yager, Heidt is already a strong two-way player thanks to his competitiveness and awareness. He battles for every inch of ice and uses his strong skating ability to impact the game in multiple ways. "
