A speedy and agile skater, Pelletier has an explosive stride and can fly at top speed. Dangerous when using that pace at both ends of the ice, the puck seems to be on a string as he propels forward. Offensively, he is very opportunistic and if he smells a scoring chance, he seems to have an extra gear and killer instinct. While he would be thrown into the finesse player category, he plays a pretty simple north-south game. Creative and shifty, he can turn nothing plays into scoring chances on a regular basis, but his biggest strength might be his way to process the game with his high hockey IQ. Natural scorer with a quick release and accurate shot. His shot is probably the most underrated part of his game and he could even take more advantage of his accurate and surprising release. His slickness allows him to get away with his small frame for now, but he needs to grow physically to reach his potential. Learning to play more responsible in his own zone by realizing how to better use his skating and puck skill, he’ll develop the ability to intercept pucks and counter quickly. Works hard alongside the boards to take the puck out of the zone and ensures good communication with teammates so everyone have their assignment covered. Overall, he’s a well-rounded player with very few weaknesses outside of his measurements.
