A skilled two-way forward, Turcotte has an amazing top speed that allows him to create many controlled zone entries. He owns great acceleration and agility, which makes him deadly on the breakout and in the neutral zone. Though it looks like he’s still getting used to his legs, his skating is effective and powerful allowing him to break through contact and drive to the net or down low. With both great speed and puck protection, he passes defensemen on the outside with ease at high speed. He pushes the pace of play and carries the puck through the neutral zone and into the offensive end at full speed. He’s big and lanky with a good amount of power that enables him to be a dominant force with the puck. An exciting player to watch, he boasts nice hands and can beat opponents one-on-one with creative stick work. He has the ability to spread the ice and draw defenders over to him, while then firing cross-ice passes to set up teammates for scoring chances. Not afraid to be a net-front presence, he shows he’s willing to do anything to score and win. He has some filthy mitts and he can pull off incredible moves to create space for himself. He’s very competitive and he will battle with intensity for every loose puck. He backchecks with intensity and is very involved defensively.
