Othmann is a speedy winger with a full toolbox of offensive skill and burgeoning abilities to make creative and shifty plays in transition. He possesses a great shot, with deceptive power and a quick one-timer that he sets his feet for very well. He shows off great shot mechanics, pointing his toe towards the net and showing good downward force into his stick. He has the ability to fire shots off both legs, a very transferrable trait with the ability to get shots off from anywhere on the ice quickly. He’s a strong puck carrier who displays some fancy moves but keeps it simple with quick puck movement more frequently. Shows good puck control at high speed, including great vision off the rush and fearlessness cutting to the middle of the ice. He makes a habit of surveying his options in the offensive end, excelling at creating quick passing plays and working off the cycle. He possesses really impressive poise and puck protection, taking the time when called for to make an extra move and open up a better passing option. He shows a sound instinct for finding space to release his shot in the offensive end, but should be more aggressive firing pucks on net when given a decent chance rather than waiting for the perfect opportunity. Othmann is an above-average skater who shows good agility and the ability to stop and change directions on a dime, but doesn’t get great extension on his stride and it limits his acceleration despite solid foot speed and great conditioning. Improved lower-body strength would be huge for Othmann, as currently he struggles with his acceleration and he’s pushed off the puck a little too easily. He has decent defensive smarts from the wing, with solid body positioning and aggressive pursuit on opposing defenders. He can put forth inconsistent effort on the backcheck but shows a nice active stick and defensive reads when he’s locked in. He doesn’t initiate physically enough but isn’t afraid to support the play in dirty areas of the ice. He can play a very gritty game, making him incredibly difficult to play against, although this will need to be more consistent. Othmann was one of the early movers to play professionally in Europe this year, where he took strides forward in his all-around game.
