David Goyette is a two-way winger with high-end speed who gets involved in the offense and is still the first one back when the play goes the other way. His stride is characterized by a deep knee bend, strong leg and arm drive, and a quiet upper-body. His skating allows him to effectively drive transition when he’s on the ice. He’s calm under pressure and has the ability to carve through the neutral zone with his skating. He makes quick and easy entry passes, allowing his team to gain entry to the offensive zone with full control of the puck. He has solid puck skills, possessing the ability to be an adequate facilitator, but he’s at his best when he uses his shot. He has solid shooting mechanics, allowing him to release the puck off his stick quickly. He generates a lot of power and accuracy when he pulls the trigger, and there’s little hesitation to do so. He will want to add some strength to his frame as he progresses towards the professional ranks because there are times opponents can easily knock him off the puck and strip him of possession. He also has a tendency to be too passive and wait for the perfect play. There are times he skates himself into trouble waiting for a perfect lane rather than taking what the defense gives him and making the simple play. He’s the type of player that can drive play whenever he is on the ice, so if he can work on becoming more confident and more willing to take what’s presented in front of him as opposed to waiting for the perfect play, he will become a much more effective player. Goyette won’t have to wait too long before hearing his name called, and whoever drafts him will get a player that can eventually slot into their middle-six and play multiple situations at the next level.
