Please see our Scouting Report FAQ for detailed descriptions of the scouting process
Note: Reports prior to Sept 2023 were originally graded out of ten, and also included additional categories that have been merged into the current categories.
This likely results in the overall ratings prior to 2023 being decreased in comparison to reports since Sept 2023.

For an `Apples to Apples` comparison between players, we recommend only comparing reports before, or after, Sept 2023.
Results will average out accordingly as more data is accumulated.

1A
Bobrovsky is the kind of goalie who can run hot and steal an entire series for a team. He proved it last season when he led the Panthers to the Stanley Cup Final. He was the best version of himself. Butterfly / Athletic goalie. Active. Rebound control ranges. When opponents get him moving side to side he tends to open up / end up on his chest / exposes top of net. His quickness and compete are elite. Never quits on a puck. Really tough to beat when he feels the puck early in games and makes a big save in the opening minutes of a game. Final ten game segment to end the regular season ranged. Ended with a 4-4-0-2 record / .900 save percentage / 2.64 GAA Averaged 26 shots on goal against. Florida needs him to win the goaltending battle versus Vasilevsky / Tampa Bay in round one.Apr. 16, 2024Apr. 19, 2024

L3
Tarasenko, arguably, has been one of the Senators forwards who has generally played to his identity and strengths this season. He's a pending UFA who carries a cap hit of $5M His contract is armed with a full no move clause - meaning he can chose his destination at the trade deadline Continues to average 16 minutes per game TOI - deployed at even strength and the power-play. Through 57GP he contributed 17G - 24A 15G - 18A at even strength. Generally responsible defensively - certainly average at worst - a (+13) on the season Pace remains NHL caliber. Still enough game to play in top six if required Clearly not done producing offense. Could add a secondary layer for a contending team.Feb. 27, 2024Mar. 4, 2024

L3
Most recent five game segment (February 20 - 29th) resulted in an average TOI that ranged from 13:00 - 18:46 Continues to be deployed in all situations - secondary PP and PK Offense comes in streaks - 5G - 3A in last fifteen games High end of average skater. Reliable three zone detail. Not an elite play driver but finds a way to get pucks to the net. Likely to always provide secondary offense, but production has been slow to arrive (consistently) in his young career. Struggling to return to same form he had in 21/22 season. Not overly physical. Credited with 36 hits / 27 shot blocks through 56GP Cap hit = $925K Pending RFA Generally wins over 50% of his draws.Feb. 27, 2024Mar. 2, 2024

Bobrovsky ran hot in playoffs, last spring, for the Panthers and he's continued his stellar play in to this season. Through 42GP he posted a 2.36 GAA and .916 save percentage. Athletic. Great feet. Quick moving side to side. Can be a bit 'busy' in the crease at times but he's doing a nice job of fronting shooters and taking away net. His game, in its current form, has rarely given up poor goals against this season overall. Securely in the discussion for another Vezina trophy. Heavy workload. One of the top 5 goalies in games played.Feb. 20, 2024Feb. 24, 2024

All things considered, Tarasenko has had a generally decent year in Ottawa. He's averaging 16 minutes per game TOI - deployed at even strength and the power-play. Through 51GP he had scored 15G-22A. 13G-17A at even strength. Most impressive is the fact he's a (+16) Pending UFA. His cap hit is $5M. His contract carries a full no trade clause. Moving well and playing to his strengths offensively. Still has enough game to slide into a top six role. Clearly not done producing offense. Feb. 20, 2024Feb. 23, 2024

L3
In his first 45GP with Ottawa Tarasenko averaged 15:50 TOI - 13:25 ES - 2:23 PP - No PK Curiously - in a five game segment before the All-Star break - his time on ice ranged from 12:30 - 17:30 - with his power-play role remaining intact but his even strength ice time declining On balance he has had a productive year - 13G-20A (+11) His compete ranges at times, but he has the skill and pace to impact the game offensively. On the PP he's a threat rotating high off his strong side and directing pucks on net. Although he doesn't play with a ton of physicality (only credited with 35 hits and 19 shot blocks) he's heavy set and sturdy along the wall and around the crease / hard to move off pucks with his strength and weight. One year deal in Ottawa - Pending UFA - $5M AAV - Full no trade clause Lands somewhere between a second and third line forward at this stage of his career. Element is offense - but he's been one of the better Senator forwards defensively this season.Jan. 29, 2024Feb. 5, 2024

Established an identity early in his freshman season. Led the NCAA in scoring at the 20 game mark. His game went through some peaks and valleys in the back half of the season. In 13 games, before the NCAA tournament, he scored (3g-6a) - which was well below the pace he had set early in the year. His element is offense. Deceptive/ Accurate shot. Scores goals working off the half wall, middle of the ice, and around the net. His hockey IQ is sound. His read/react game is pro worthy.

Interesting prospect. A late 2003 birthday. Freshman at Denver. Projects to be a 2-way FWD. Skating, up to speed, is sound. Good edges.

Being used primarily at even strength and on the first power play unit with some penalty kill sprinkled in. His element is easy to identify. A transitional defender who brings offense from the back end and contributes on the power play as a shooter or distributor There is some risk/reward to his game defensively More detail from his red line down will be required for the pro game. When he buys in more on the defensive side he could potentially bring top 4 pairing value as a pro.Dec. 11, 2021Jan. 17, 2022

His element comes from his skating. A high end skater who is quick, fast and agile. Used RS and on the second PP unit (as a distributor more than a shooter) Plays a low risk game at this level. Capable of more risk/reward/ taking chances offensively and leading the rush. Defending can lack detail at times and will need to improve as he winds down his college career.Nov. 21, 2021Jan. 2, 2022

Good size defender who leans 2-way / Transitional Agile PP QB at the college level but not elite enough to be considered a top option as a pro Handles puck well / distributes / has better than average ability to get pucks to the net Benefits from loads of ice time at Merrimack but his detail overall will need to improve as he defines his game as a pro Shows awareness to join rush offensivelyOct. 23, 2021Jan. 1, 2022

Noticeable and producing offensively Competes / quick / fast / creates turnovers / goes to hard areas An energy type prospect who might be a late bloomer He is willing to do the little things to help his team win Development curve is later than most but he appears to be a player who can be used in a variety of roles At worst he is a depth prospect who can match up and PKOct. 23, 2021Jan. 1, 2022
