Alex Bump is a highly-skilled winger who excels when he has the puck on his stick. If you give him any time and space with the puck, he has the skill to make any defender looks silly. He’s a multi-dimensional offensive weapon who can act as both a playmaker and a scorer. He can effectively create chances out of the cycle and off the rush but is at his best when working in one-on-one situations. He has high-end puck skills that allow him to beat opponents with slick moves and the ability to make risky plays look routine. He split time between Prior Lake and playing with Omaha in the USHL, having a ton of success in the high school circuit and some quality games in the USHL. He’s a raw player who has an extremely high ceiling, but there are some risks involved with him. The biggest concern is his ability to make decisions quickly when under pressure. There are times he was able to do whatever he wanted while at Prior Lake because the level of competition wasn’t always the best, but when playing in the USHL he would hold the puck too long, allowing opponents to close in on him and either block his opportunity or take the puck away from him all together. Like any young player, he will need to learn that you can’t always create space for yourself at the collegiate and professional levels. If he can get more comfortable playing in close quarters situations it will go a long way for his offensive game. He’s a swing-for-the-fences type of prospect, which can either excite teams or make them nervous to take him. If Bump develops properly, he can turn into an elite skill player who dominates at five-on-five and on the power play for years to come. If he doesn’t, there isn’t much upside for him on an NHL roster.
