George Fegaras is a solid two-way player who uses his big frame and strength to have an impact in all three zones. He has NHL-ready size and solid mobility to pair with it. He also has no issues getting up and down the ice with his legs. He’s able to overpower his opponents on both sides of the puck. In the offensive zone he’s comfortable as a puck-carrier, working the puck from the outer perimeter to the center lane and waiting for lanes to open up. He has quality puck skills, and because he’s an adequate playmaker and quality shooter, his skill allows him to keep the opponents guessing on what he will do with the puck. Defensively he uses his skating to keep up with his opponents and maintain quality gap control. On the rush he can use his size and physicality to separate opponents from the puck or angle them away from the center lane and keep them away from the prime scoring areas. He was great against OJHL competition this season, but there may be some concerns with how his game would translate to higher levels of competition. He produced at close to a point-per-game for North York and has a commitment to the NCAA in the future. He has a lot of potential and would be a nice gamble in the mid-to-late rounds of the draft, and his next few seasons will be crucial for his development. He has the potential to be an all-situations defender who plays big minutes at the next level, but it remains to be seen how his skillset will translate to the professional or even collegiate ranks. He’s a draft-and-stash type player, and teams will be more than aware he’s a long-term project that could pay off big in a few years with an abundance of guidance and a little bit of patience.
