Through his skating, Cardwell’s smarts can shine through. He possesses some nice speed on the rush and he showed off excellent agility, constantly keeping his feet moving. He utilizes his speed to jump onto pucks, create havoc in the offensive zone and create scoring chances. He is relentless on the puck and can be a thorn in the side of defenders as he chases them around their own zone, like a dog on a bone. He has solid transition speed that he uses to lead his own forecheck and push defenders deep into their zone, though he could work on using his full explosive speed more often. His quick stick and sharp edges help him react quickly to changing circumstances in front of him and interrupt outlet passes, providing him and his teammates odd man opportunities as the other team is transitioning up ice. His mobility is key to his aggressive style and in combination with his compete, makes him really valuable in puck retrieval. He can sometimes try and clean up his mistakes and cover the flaws in his game with skating. He seems to rely on the dump and chase a bit too often when it might be more efficient to carry the puck into the zone with control. His puck skills are a little lacking in terms of being able to beat opponents one-on-one, however he does create some nice passing plays to move the puck around the ice efficiently and he possesses a bit of a canon of a shot. When he lets it off, he can really surprise goalies with the speed he can get the puck off his stick. He is relentless on the puck carrier and uses his skating to force his opponents to make mistakes in their own zone. His smarts on both sides of the puck are where he shows the ability to create turnovers on the back check and solid defensive hockey. He needs to improve his play reading ability and better anticipate when to let off the gas to avoid being pulled out of position. He can become very puck focused and have tunnel vision on the task in front of him. Overall, he needs to polish his game but is aggressive despite his smaller stature and owns an under used and underappreciated shot.
