Ben Danford's Player Profile

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 3rd: "Heís an intelligent defender who has good skating ability to challenge forwards. Heís a 6-foot defenseman, so his lack of offense is something that likely limits his potential, but his willingness and competitiveness on defense is a notable trait and he moves pucks competently enough to ease some concerns about his puck play."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 3: "Danford gets high marks as a person and as a player who takes care of his own end first but is developing his offensive instincts and starting to take more chances off of the line and involve himself in more plays around the offensive zone. He also shows good poise under pressure to hold pucks with players on his back and find ways to spin off and head-man. His skating is average or maybe slightly above."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 28th: "Offensively he's not dynamic, but he's quite smart with the puck. He makes a lot difficult passes, often while skating with pace. I don't think he stands out at either end of the ice in the NHL, but he could be a useful defenseman for an organization."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - May 28th: "For a defenseman with Danfordís offensive abilities, itís crazy he had just one goal during the regular season with Oshawa. But heís a guy his teammates like to rely on because heís rarely caught making a mistake distributing the puck."
