Jimmy Snuggerud is a speedy, offensive winger who can create chances in a multitude of ways for his team. He has high-quality puck skills, with fast hands and an elite shot that can beat goalies from almost anywhere in the offensive zone. He has a knack for getting the puck into the high-danger areas, and coupling that with his shot makes him one of the better scoring forwards the USNTDP has to offer this year. His skating is a plus for him, too. He has solid footwork that makes up for his lack of explosive speed. He’s a good puckhandler and a capable transition player, but there is a tendency in his game to try and do too much with the puck on his stick. As he gets older and matures, he will need to learn when to try a high-risk, high-reward move and when to take what the defense gives him. Simple is better in this case. His offensive game is his bread and butter, and whoever drafts him will be doing so because of his ability to put the puck in the back of the net with regularity. His defensive game is a work in progress, though. He has good vision and understands where to be defensively, but he just needs to continue to work on his consistency. He might not slot in as a surefire top-six winger in the NHL, but with his skillset he has what it takes to be a middle-six offensive player who will be effective at five-on-five and carve out a role on special teams. He has seen his game improve as the season has progressed, and has found himself rising up the draft ranks as a result. It wouldn’t be all that surprising to hear his name called a lot earlier than most would have predicted. This year’s USNTDP was full of high-end forwards, and Snuggerud’s name is rightfully among that list of intriguing options.
