Luca Del Bel Belluz is an intelligent, two-way attacker with an all-around offensive tool kit that he combines with a strong 200-foot game. He’s a multi-dimensional offensive threat and has the ability to read and react in both the transition game and out of the cycle. His IQ at both ends of the ice allows him to consistently position himself in the correct spot to get off a quick shot or deliver a simple pass that sets up a teammate. His size is a plus for him and, while he’s not the strongest player right now, he will likely grow and add more weight to his frame which will allow him to become more effective in the 50/50 puck battles that are crucial to retaining possession for his team. He’s the type of player that makes his teammates better just by stepping on the ice. He doesn’t do anything at an elite level, but he’s so good at so many different things that he’s tough to defend against and can consistently generate offensive chances. The concerns surrounding him will be around his ceiling and ability to perform at a consistent level once he makes the jump to the professional ranks. He had a solid season in the OHL and has the tools to be a solid contributor at the NHL level, but his lack of any elite skill and an upright and choppy skating stride which limits his acceleration and top-end speed could hold him back once he plays against tougher competition. He has the ability to be a middle-six forward if he hits his ceiling, who can play in all situations and bring lineup versatility to the organization that drafts him. There has been talk about Del Bel Belluz sneaking his way into the first round, but if he doesn’t go on Day One, he will be a hot commodity to be plucked early on the second day of the draft.
