Zach Benson's Player Profile

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 7th: "Benson is a very difficult player to place in the mock because he has his fans, but there is still concern about his size."

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - June 5th: "One of the smartest players in this yearís draft class, Benson plays the game two or three steps ahead of the rest of the players on the ice. Whereas most players have a Plan A and maybe a Plan B, Benson usually has a Plan C, D, and E."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 5th: "Heís the kind of player who fills the stat sheet and elevates his linemates in subtle ways. Increasingly, Iíve been impressed by his agility in and out of breaks and cuts (his skating is an almost underrated asset for him and particularly impressive through his edges and crossovers, though he can get going the length of the ice, too)."

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 1st: "He challenges opposing players with aggressive stick checks and body position. What makes that skill even more effective is how quickly he can force turnovers and immediately make a dangerous play off a pass or shot."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 30th: "He's a responsible, detailed defensive player who is an asset without the puck. His frame, combined with a lack of separation speed, is a concern, though, for his NHL projection even though he's got good quickness in tight."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - May 29th: "Heís only 5-foot-10, but heís strong, has a great release and his shift-to-shift effort level will never waver. Bensonís going to be a big-time play driver."

Jason Bukala - Sportsnet - May 5th: "Makes plays along the wall and in traffic. Goes to the front of the net off the puck looking for tips and setting screens. On the PP he makes plays from the weak side flank. Trusted to be used in all situations and take first and last shifts of periods."
