Adam Ingram is one of the most physically gifted players in the top half of the draft class. He has a unique skillset that will be coveted by NHL scouts. He’s a gifted forward who has size, can play a power game and score at will. He can drive transition play as a puck-carrier but he’s at his best when working off the puck and using his size and smarts to get open in the prime shooting areas of the offensive zone. Once he finds himself open in the slot, he’s able to utilize his best asset – his elite shot. He has a knack for getting the puck on and off his stick in the blink of an eye when he’s in a prime scoring area. Whether he powers his way there himself or receives a pass from a teammate, he has a quick and accurate release that terrorized goalies this season. His skating has gotten better as the season progressed, too, and has become a strong tool in his toolbox. His size and wide base make him tough to knock off the puck when he gets up to full speed, making him a virtually unstoppable force when he drives the center lane. He also has the ability to dictate pace, slowing the play around him to better evaluate his options. Speeding up his tempo in other situations would be beneficial, though. The main issue with him is that he doesn’t consistently use his size and strength to his advantage. He’s come a long way since September, but he needs to start using his body and strength more regularly if he wants to take his game to another level. He has the size and strength to be a premier power forward, but the willingness and drive to do so isn’t always there. Ingram is a capable scorer from anywhere, but if he continues to develop a consistent power game, he will be an excellent player at the NHL level.
