Showing elite offensive potential, Byram uses his strong skating and offensive instincts to drive the play. A prototypical two-way defenseman, he’s able to mobilize his big body on the attack and in his own zone, changing the landscape of the play by accelerating and pushing the game at his pace. A vital catalyst to his team, he anticipates the play extremely well in transition and on offense. At times, he can look disinterested in his defensive responsibilities and his positioning in his own zone can be iffy. This could be due to the fact that he logs so many minutes for Vancouver on the blue line. He does possess all the tools to improve his defensive game. He’s excellent on the breakout and is great at creating offense from the back end, which is what every team wants on their top pairing. Perfectly suited for today’s possession-based game, he’s unflappable under pressure and usually finds ideal passing or skating lanes out of his own end and into the offensive zone. He has a quick shot that is accurate, but still needs to put in work to get more power behind it. Possessing excellent vision, creativity and awareness, he’s a highly-precise passer who connects quickly and efficiently with teammates to get pucks out of his own zone. He also has the adept awareness to lead and be deceptive in delivery.
