Zayne Parekh's Player Profile

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - August 14th: "Parekh plays an aggressive offensive style that looks to attack off the line into the slot or even the front of the net or below the goal line. He’ll also regularly involve himself in the rush much like a winger does, driving down the wall in control to look to put defenders on their heels with his skating and attack into his shot or create an odd-man rush."

Peter Baracchini - The Hockey Writers - July 20th: "When he has the time and space, he isn’t afraid to take advantage of that, getting into position for a quick, accurate and powerful wrist shot. He has great speed and edges to engage on the cycle, does a great job to walk the line and is quick to work a give and go for passing plays or getting into a shooting lane."

Jason Bukala - Sportsnet - July 6th: "He’s a transitional/two-way defenceman who has the skill, and vision, to quarterback the power play on projection. He’s plenty smart enough in all three zones and could be used in a variety of roles."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - July 5th: "He’s a very skilled and creative offensive player. He has the skating to get up into attacks, the hands to beat opponents, the vision to hit seams and make tough plays and a great point shot, too. Parekh’s issue will be his frame and overall defensive play which worries some scouts."

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 30th: "Parekh is aggressive in jumping into plays and there are certainly reservations about his overall defensive game. A 6-foot, right-shot defenseman who can score is going to bring a lot of value and we’ll have to see how he progresses this season while Saginaw loads as the Memorial Cup host this season."
