Alexis Gendron is a very active and dynamic attacker who can push the pace with outstanding quickness and linear-speed through transition. He has a great first couple steps to gain speed quickly and his stride is fluid and effortless. He is tenacious and competes to creates offense with a non-stop motor. He has fast feet and fast hands, and excels at driving into quality locations on the ice to access dangerous scoring chances. He can get off the boards with a sudden cut to the inside, and on the rush he can take a defender wide or lose an opponent with a clever outside-in fake. His puck protection is good and he shields it away from the opposition with his body or evasive maneuvers. He does, at times, attack with a bit too much risk which can lead to ill-timed turnovers, but the approach is commendable and we could expect him to hone that skill as time goes on. He can zip the puck around, find teammates, and complete passes both under and over sticks. He goes hard into puck battles and physical situations. Although he lacks the build to dominate battles, he never shies away from contact and puts himself in the middle of the action. He gets a pile of puck touches through the course of a game. He also racks-up shot attempts and has an excellent wrist shot that pops off the blade. He does give up a bit of defensive ability with all that offensive focus, which is an adjustable concern. He can get out of position in his own end or get caught puck-watching, but these things should improve as his game matures. If he can tidy up his defensive zone play and reduce turnovers through better decision-making, he looks like a guy that can develop through the AHL, into an NHL middle-six role.
