Almquist

At his best, Almquist is a very fun little player. He is incredibly quick and agile, and has a stellar pair of mitts. When he gets the puck in the offensive zone he can really buzz as he darts around, slips through or around traffic, and funnels pucks into dangerous areas. Finds open space well…

At his best, Almquist is a very fun little player. He is incredibly quick and agile, and has a stellar pair of mitts. When he gets the puck in the offensive zone he can really buzz as he darts around, slips through or around traffic, and funnels pucks into dangerous areas. Finds open space well and frequently drives to the net. Zone exits and entries with possession aren’t problems for him. His decisions with the puck aren’t perfect, but he is capable of creating dangerous chances out of nothing in a way that most other prospects aren’t. Is a difficult player to read or predict when he gets the puck on his stick because he can try so many things. Can slow the play down in the offensive zone to find his openings, keeping his head on a swivel to know where everyone is, or up the tempo to force mistakes out of his opponents. Doesn’t get any power behind his shots because he is tiny and slight, though his precision with the puck should allow him to score goals in tight. Is elusive with his feet and can curl to protect the puck, though there are a surprising number of times where he loses his edges, possibly due to a lack of lower-body strength. Play without the puck isn’t great, in either his efforts or his awareness, and he needs to be more careful when trying to pass the puck up ice in transition. There are a lot of times where his intentions don’t align with his actual execution, usually when trying to do too much himself with the puck. He’s good enough offensively that he should be able to get by on that without being a great 200-foot player, but he will need to be more consistently effective with his individual attempts. With the right development and patience Almquist could become an entertaining and productive winger at the NHL level.
