A versatile offensive forward, Boldy possesses elite vision, an excellent first pass in the offensive zone as well as high-end skating ability. He has some slick, deceptive edges and a smooth stride that help him escape pressure with ease. He protects the puck well, thanks to his strong edges and good strength. His ability to consistently enter the zone with control and speed helps his team hold onto possession of the puck and maintain pressure for solid periods of time. His stellar passing abilities are a big part of his game. He looks like he will develop into a top-line playmaker at the next level and could be lethal as the set-up man on the power play, but he can also carry his own in the goal-scoring department. He has smooth hands that make him dangerous in one-on-one battles. He has a powerful wrist shot and a good backhand shot that he loves to use near the net. Able to maneuver in high traffic areas with the puck on his stick without losing possession. With his big frame, he can take the puck to the net and screen goaltenders effectively. Also displays nice net-front presence as smaller opponents don’t have much of a chance to win positioning battles against him. He’s decent in his own zone as well, as he is very involved in board battles and covers his man well.
