The Pro Hockey Group
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.

Tufte is a former first-round pick of the Dallas Stars. He's proven he can score at the AHL level but his NHL impact has been minimal so far in his career.
Big body. Long reach. Ability to extend plays down low in the offensive zone. Can be a net front distraction in the offensive zone. Good skater for his stature.
Not overly physical. Decent spatial awareness in the defensive zone. On the cusp of either full time depth NHL duty or 'first call up' role.
When he does get in games he averages just over 11:00 TOI. Deployed at ES and some PP.
