Will Smith's Player Profile

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 7th: "Smith has a chance to be a play-driving forward that creates offense in bunches. He wants the puck a lot and he makes those around him better."

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - June 5th: "Will Smith is one of the most entertaining players in the draft class with his skill and creativity on offense. He was the driver and catalyst on one of the most entertaining lines at any level of hockey."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 5th: "A brilliant handler and manipulator of the puck, including at full speed, Smith is a tantalizing and slippery talent who blends deception, baits and fakes (with his eyes, shoulders and head) into his movements to not just make opposing players miss but often send them the wrong way."

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 1st: "As a play-driving center, Smith has the puck on his stick an awful lot. Hes often carrying pucks into the offensive zone and when he crosses that blue line, hes about as dangerous as any player in this class. He knows all of his options and often picks the right one."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 30th: "Smith is a dynamic offensive player who stands out every game with his talent. He has tremendous puck skills, vision and overall offensive creativity and projects to be a major asset on an NHL power play."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - May 29th: "Smith was named MVP of the U-18 Worlds after scoring nine goals and 20 points in just seven games en route to a gold. It was one of the best tournament performances ever, with Smith recording at least a point in every single game."

Jason Bukala - Sportsnet - May 5th: "He's an elite playmaker/goal scorer. Unquestionably one of the most dynamic players in the draft class. Projects to be a top-line point producer at the NHL level and a prime contributor on the first PP unit."
