Who To Watch At The Hlinka Gretzky Cup

Perfetti is an explosive skater with great power in his stride and high energy, including quick feet from a stopped position to gain speed quickly and win loose puck races. Sits low in his stride, giving him great agility and the ability to make tight turns to create space for himself. Sometimes he lacks consistency in his effort level, which at times affects his overall speed. Controls the puck very well at high speed, showing the ability to beat defenders one-on-one and fool goalies with quick dekes in tight. While his elite shot is still his weapon of choice, he has been a more dynamic playmaker this season and he is displaying a more versatile skillset than before. His shot has a lightning fast release and good accuracy, but he seems to lose power on his shot when he can’t set his feet. His knack for finding open space in the offensive zone in uncanny as he seems to evade defenders with ease and settle in soft spots in the coverage.  Defensively, he seems better suited for the wing, using his speed to force bad decisions at the blueline and focusing his energy on transitioning the puck. He can be a bit lazy on the defensive size of the puck and could be more involved physically more consistently, although he isn’t afraid of the dirty areas or physical battles with bigger players when he is engaged. Overall, he has diversified his game and if he works on his consistency, he could be a solid offensive threat.
