A puck-moving offensive defenseman, Doyle shows excellent poise and composure with the puck. He has excellent agility and a decent top speed. He has smooth edges and his stride is very fluid. He defends rushes well with good stick-work and he shows good gap control. He’s good at poke-checking the puck away from opponents before recovering it and transitioning it the other way. That said, he needs to work on his positioning defensively as he can get lost trying to put pressure on the puck carrier. His ability to start the attack from his own end is impressive and he can dish out breakout passes to quickly start the attack. He possesses slick hands and he’s able to pull off some impressive dangles. His puck skills and skating abilities allow him to escape pressure and sidestep opponents with ease. He’s patient in his decision making, but there’s also too much casualness to his game. He doesn’t seem to put in the extra effort after making a mistake. He is knocked off the puck a bit too easily and will need to add upper-body strength. He owns a half-decent wrist shot and he loves to put the puck on net. He has flashes of greatness where he makes incredible plays offensively, but he’s definitely a long-term project as he needs to work on his defensive efficiency and decision making.
