Tanner Molendyk's Player Profile

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 7th: "... Molendyk has a little bit of spark from the back end. Heís one of the best skaters in the draft and has raw offensive potential that he hasnít quite tapped into yet."

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - June 5th: "Molendyk is a wonderfully toolsy defender who should probably score more than he has because of his natural ability. He is absolutely outstanding in transition, moving the puck up the ice with effective passing and crisp skating."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 5th: "He evades pressure and walks the line with the best of them in this class, displaying comfort on his heels and inside and outside edges. Heís also a competitive defender on both sides of the puck who plays tight, active gaps to use his feet to be disruptive or step up in transition."

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 1st: "Molendyk's skating is especially enticing. He can still stand to defend better, but having defensemen that can get pucks up ice as quickly as Molendyk does with either his feet or a good first pass has a lot of value in the modern NHL."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 30th: "He closes on checks like a pro, and is able to evade pressure at a high level. His top speed is good, not great, but he can lead a rush in the NHL. Molendyk has strong offensive instincts and skills, and can make plays from off the blue line and on the move."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - May 29th: "Molendyk sometimes feels like a fourth forward out there with how he moves the puck and generates chances. But the offense didnít seem to follow like most expected, bumping him down a few pegs."
