Landry is a relentless worker who also has some decent passing skill. While he may not truly stand out in one aspect of his game, he’s extremely solid all-around. The Gatineau captain plays hard, from his physicality to his battling. His high compete level and intensity are always very noticeable. He is very consistent in his effort in both forechecks and backchecks, and he is not scared to crash the net with speed. He’s always in the thick of things, looking to get his team the puck. Along with his high compete level, he is also a good puck-mover. For a player who plays as aggressively as he does, he matches that with intelligence. He can make the easy passes on breakouts and zone entries, and, at times, complete nice and dangerous passes to high-danger spots in the offensive zone with both his backhand and forehand. He shows good vision in his passing, finding teammates cross-ice through traffic. He has a nice, quick release and a good shot, but doesn’t use it quite enough. Skating through the neutral zone in transition, he accelerates as he crosses over side to side. His first three or four strides aren’t too explosive, but he generates some deceptive speed with his crossovers. Skating technique seems a bit funky at times, though, and he seems to lack balance, two things that stop him from being an agile, dynamic and explosive skater overall. He is an active defender, moving around in the zone and keeping an active stick consistently. He has developed great habits defensively, always putting the extra effort to close out on attackers and disturb counterattacks with his stick and body. However, he is often unaware of his opponents’ positioning in his defensive zone, missing coverage because he doesn’t rotate his head around to scan the ice and find opponents. Landry is an interesting prospect, as he has some nice tools, but he needs to work on a couple of key things in order to become a professional player.
