Christian Kyrou is an exciting, offensive-minded defender who loves to push the envelope and jump into the rush every chance he can get. He was one of the more dynamic offensive-defenders in the OHL during the season, showcasing his strong offensive instincts and skating ability. His skating pops off the page when you watch him play. He has impressive four-way mobility allowing him to cover large areas of ice in a quick manner. He can drive transition on his own, taking the puck on end-to-end rushes multiple times a game. In the offensive zone, he’s a quality shooting and passing option. He can spot passing lanes quickly and deliver a crisp pass right to his teammates stick. Defensively he’s no slouch either, using his high-end skating to maintain great gap control on the rush and blanket himself to his assignment in the defensive zone. The main issue with him will be his consistency. He has all the tools to be a quality player at both ends of the ice but needs to find the consistency in his game and not allow himself to go through peaks and valleys as often as he does. When he’s not feeling it, he needs to find a way to still impact the game. There’s a ton of upside in his game. He wasn’t handed an easy assignment by his team in filling the shoes of Jamie Drysdale, but the task did not seem too tall for him at all. He finished the year as one of the most productive offensive blueliners in the draft class and really put himself on the NHL radar. He has the potential to be a top-four defenseman at the next level who logs big minutes on the power play. Kyrou’s floor is a lot higher than it once appeared and there won’t be a lot of risk in taking a right-shot defender who can consistently push the pace of play.
