Whynot is a fairly capable two-way defender who makes plays at both ends of the ice. He has a nice long stride, and his long legs help to propel him up and down the ice with good speed without having to overwork himself. That being said, he struggles to get his feet underneath him with any sort of speed, so most of his skating stride is due to the extended push-off he gets from his long lower appendages. He really shows off his skating stride when he sees space for himself to drive the puck up ice. He possesses some solid transition ability and can find good lanes when he chooses to carry the puck up ice. He shows some solid poise on the blue line and he’s a competent power play distributor. He understands that his shot is likely not going to beat a goalie clean from the point, so instead he smartly tosses floaters through traffic and looks for tip opportunities. He is also a fairly good puck distributor when he has time and space. He reads plays well and can get the puck to open ice and streaking teammates. You’d like to see him handle the puck more often at five-on-five because he does seem to be able to provide more than he shows. On the defensive side he displays competitiveness and smart positioning. He does an excellent job of closing the gap and driving attackers to the outside with body positioning and a long stick. Generally, when an opponent is coming down on him he is able to angle them to the wall and behind the net. He will definitely need to hit the gym though, as he lacks the power to truly be a physical force and separate players from pucks, and he seems to prefer this method rather than poke checking or stick lifting. Seems a bit raw still and definitely needs to improve on his skating technique and strength if he’s going to be effective at the next level.
