Prospect Check-In: Matthew Coronato of the Chicago Steel

Coronato is dangerous with the puck on his stick and consistently creates offensive chances for his team, having the ability to do it on his own. Contributing big minutes, playing on both the PP and PK, he manages to rarely take his foot off the gas and shows he wants to win. His transition game is really excellent, quickly and efficiently transporting the puck for his team and often gaining the zone with control through the centre lanes. He’s particularly effective off the rush, transitioning the play to offense quickly and finding open lanes to enter the offensive zone. He is an above-average skater who lacks top-end acceleration but shows good edgework and elusiveness. He possesses a decent top speed when he gets room to accelerate, particularly circling back through the neutral zone to gain speed and gain the offensive end with control. Strong puckhandler, as he can make moves through traffic and makes quick plays under pressure to keep the play alive. Shows off one-on-one moves to open up space at times but prefers to draw defenders in and then move the puck to an open area. At times he can put his head down and not be scanning his options with the puck. He works himself into a high-pressure area but then throws the puck into open ice hoping to find a teammate. He possesses a decent shot, firing without much windup and finding good spots in the offensive end to set up and present a good shooting target. He could stand to fire the puck more, particularly when outside the home plate area or on an odd-man rush. Defensively, he provides a strong supporting outlet pass along his wing, coming down low into his own end and even circling back through the neutral zone when he doesn’t have numbers with him. Corontato shows an active stick when defending in-zone, but his lack of explosiveness in his first few strides makes him less effective when pressuring someone with the puck. Physically, he doesn’t shy away from battles and does a good job fighting through checks to make a play with the puck. However, his ability to drive to the middle of the ice and aggressiveness on the back check are areas to improve, both of which should come with added upper-body strength.
