There are a lot of positives in how Roulette is able to create offensive sequences using high-end awareness and his first touch. Can make one-touch passes off the wall and hit linemates in full stride thanks to his feel for the puck. He has a quality shot and some manipulative skill that flows through his hands. When he’s focused on creating chances for his teammates as opposed to for himself is when the skill he possesses shines through the most. He doesn’t quite have the dynamism in his hands to dangle through defenders, but he does have the ability to create space and passing lanes. He is deceptive, showing more intent to deceive or manipulate instead of holding pucks too long. His creativity and ability to read play are strong, but he drives plays through his hands and it’s a placeholder ability that will limit him unless he intends on making a career of showing up in soft ice and out-thinking everyone. His off-puck game is quite strong and he blends quite well, trying to hide between checks as much as possible, but feels he must cheat to get space to create. His skating is noticeably a detrimental area of his game, as he lacks explosiveness and stride recovery. He is incredibly laboured in his acceleration and poses little threat when attacking with possession on the rush. He is an easy player for opposing back-checkers to track down. He gets ridden off quite a few pucks and put himself in vulnerable positions by trying to drive pucks wide or holding on too long trying to make plays. The play in his own zone off the puck is lacklustre, and there’s a lot of missed opportunities to end possessions by circling out of the zone and not stopping up on plays to dig in. There’s a path to correct concerns, but the mindset is the biggest hurdle. Results seem to follow him offensively wherever he goes, but there are concerns about the projection of Roullette’s game on his current development path.
