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.

Mantha's a bit of an enigma.
On one hand his size, skill, and potential to break out and score even more goals than he does is an attractive risk.
On the other hand, he can frustrate with a lack of detail and push back for his stature and skating ability.
A pending UFA who carries a cap hit of $5.7M
Leans goal scorer more than play maker. Has the pace to be a threat off the rush in transition. Has the length to coral pucks in high danger areas and direct the play to the net. Can be a distraction / hard to defend when engaged. Lacks consistency … but he's scored 17G-11A in 50GP
Averages 14 minutes per game TOI. All of his ice time comes at ES and on the PP.
For a big man he lacks physical push back. Only credited with 27 hits and 17 shot blocks.
Goal scorer when he's on. Shoot first mentality.

Big body forward who has potential to produce offensively at the NHL level but it has been slow to develop
A solid skater for his stature. Fluid. Can transition pucks. On occasion he gets the edge off the rush and presents a challenge for defenders when he net drives.
Being used ES and on the PP. Does not PK.
The potential is there. His contract calls for more results. Injuries have held him back.
