A gritty center who likes to be involved in the dirty areas of the game. Argentina likes to engage physically and battle for loose pucks. He has decent vision that allows him to make plays in the offensive zone. He loves getting under the skin of his opponents and knocking them off their game, can effectively impact the game with his physicality more than any other aspect in his game. Argentina has a long way to go with his skating if he wants to make it to the next level, lacks the breakaway speed to create separation form his opponents. His puck skills have to be improved as well, has a decent shot and can spot his teammates but struggles with the execution at times. When he’s not able to annoy his opponents, he struggles to stand out, and while there’s still a place in the NHL for gritty forwards he will want to work on the other areas in his game if he has any chance of being taken at the draft. He will have the time to develop his all-around game as he’s committed to the NCAA for the next step in his playing career. His playing style can allow him to be a shutdown player at the next level but expecting offensive production from him could be wishful thinking.
