Katalevsky is a versatile forward who plays at a high pace. He is reliable and consistent from shift to shift. His motor is strong and he has no qualms about using it, forechecking and cycling hard on offense while also rushing on the backcheck. He’s strong and thick, though not very big, but he displays surprisingly good footwork, including laterally with smooth crossovers when he has the puck in the offensive zone. He can show off flashy puck skill from time to time and will try to cut inside with the puck. His defensive game is really impressive for his age, as he follows along with the play and understands his responsibilities, while showing a propensity for angling opponents into the boards. His understanding of defensive positioning and an ability to know when to cover for his teammates in the offensive zone truly stands out in his game. He plays a very pro-style of game, with excellent work ethic on a consistent basis, maintaining a high pace and smart decision-making both with and without the puck. There are some power elements to his game, as he can get some force going when he gets a head of steam. He will chase down opponents on the forecheck and leave a physical presence if he gets the chance. He’s not the quickest or most agile skater but he’s strong and balanced on his edges, allowing him to pivot and change directions. He gets back defensively before the play does, knowing where he needs to go, when he needs to apply some pressure, and looks over his shoulders frequently to keep track of what’s happening around him. He understands the importance of coming back hard on the backcheck, displaying confidence, enthusiasm, and a willingness to get his hands dirty. He can win a number of pucks along the boards. He’s not an overly-skilled player offensively, but he’ll be a player who occasionally finds ways to get the puck in high-danger areas and has an above-average understanding of what to do when those situations occur. He can be a lot to handle at times for opposing defenders, however, actually finishing plays is a problem. He isn’t very creative or accurate with his passing game and his shot is disappointing.
