Anthony Duclair

Darren Walker

Duclair is a ashy, speedy winger who is always thinking offense and has a very impressive skill-set to develop. His best asset is his skating as he is fast and agile, powerful and effortless. He gets to pucks first more often than not and can beat a defender around the outside consistently. Duclair’s game is very electrifying. He’s always in motion on the ice and when he gets to top speed, is hard to contain for even seasoned defenders. He can be a playmaker as much as a goal scorer. He can create nice plays while stickhandling around opponents. He doesn’t have the most accurate or powerful shot. He isn’t afraid to crash the net or stay in front of it when needed. His grit is something that is interesting about him and he won’t stop from giving a good hit when he has the chance. He’ll also have to improve his defensive game as he sometimes creates turnovers in his own zone. Consistency is something he will need to improve. There have been murmurs about character concerns that NHL teams will investigate. (May 2013)
