Macklin Celebrini's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - June 11th: "The youngest player in NCAA hockey, Celebrini dominated the competition with 64 points (32 goals, 32 assists) in 38 games."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - June 11th: "He the youngest player in NCAA Division I men's hockey this season and the youngest to win the Hobey Baker Award, presented annually to recognize the top NCAA men's hockey player. Celebrini will be a major building block for a team in need of high-end, two-way talent, especially at the center position."

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 3rd: "Heís highly skilled and creative, owns a goal-scorerís shot and has elite hockey sense. Celebrini also has higher-end skating ability that allows him to separate from opponents and combines that with good quickness and agility to maximize his speed. "

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 3: "Heís got dynamic puck skills that allow him to break down opponents and coverage at speed. Heís a tactile shooter and finisher who can get pucks off in a variety of ways, from a variety of stances, and without needing to tunnel vision for it (plus he has a hard and comfortable one-timer)."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 28th: "Celebrini makes a ton of difficult plays with the puck on the move, in tight areas and from a standstill. He has a bullet shot and projects to run a first power play in the NHL. He's average-sized, but Celebrini is highly competitive, wins a lot of battles and projects as a two-way center in the NHL."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - May 28th: "Heís a tremendous two-way threat who can score, hit, defend and bring the energy, even late in a game. Thereís a reason he has dominated at every level and why some scouts consider him to be more rounded than Connor Bedard last year."

Hadi Kalakeche - Dobber Prospects - Apr. 20th: "Defensively, a lot of his offensive sequences start with intelligent back-checks, second efforts on loose pucks, and constant support of his defensemen down low. Offensively, Celebrini has become an even bigger threat off the cycle, taking the concepts that helped him create so efficiently off the rush and applying them to his cycle play."

Central Scouting - Apr. 16th: "Strong skater with a fluid stride, elusive speed and quickness. Has a good pull-away gear and top-end NHL speed. Excellent hockey sense and awareness. Slick puck control and movement game in the offensive zone Ė gets open for chances and can finish."

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - Apr. 15th: "Celebrini possesses one of the best shots in the draft class. Part of what makes him such a dangerous scorer is that he can score in various ways, whether heís shooting while attacking downhill on the rush or bursting into a hole to receive a pass in the slot at just the right time."
