An incredibly gifted defender, York can play elite-level hockey in all three zones. His skating is among the best of all the defensemen in this draft class. His skating is so silky smooth, it allows him to float around the ice and be in the perfect position to not only defend his blue line, but gain controlled zone entry into the offensive zone. He utilizes his speed and edges really well to keep a good gap while creating space for himself in the defensive and offensive zones respectively. A fundamental defensive defenseman, he’s poised in his own zone and has tremendous hockey smarts. In his own zone, York is quick to attack oncoming forecheckers with good contact and pressure with his stick. He does a great job of moving the puck out of his own zone. He’s also skilled on offense, proving to be adept at carrying the puck through the neutral zone and utilizing his high-end puck skills to make a clean zone entry. He’s then able to push back defenders while opening up passing and shooting lanes. He shows good patience with the puck to wait out defenders and make smart passing plays to the front of the net. A highly-entertaining player, he still needs to fill out his frame. Scouts have been impressed with his overall poise and skill as well as his maturity level.
