Tourigny is an offensive-minded defenseman who relies on his great instincts, mobility and speed. He savours carrying the puck himself on breakouts and pushing the pace of the play with quick outlets, but what is most striking about his game is his quick, frequent involvement in rushes. He craves quick counterattack opportunities, and constantly keeps an eye on the action to take advantage of any missteps from the opposition. He reads and processes developing plays very swiftly, jumping in transitional plays early with confidence and sound positioning. It’s not rare to see him ahead of his attackers on breakouts, or even leading the forecheck. He takes a lot of risks, but it seems very instinctive for him and, more often than not, ends up being effective. Moves very well on the cycle, flashing tremendous instincts to get into prime scoring position and outstanding mobility to survey the blueline. Combining smooth four-way skating ability with decent playmaking skill and a snappy slap shot, he is very fluid and versatile on offense. He quarterbacks the power play effortlessly. Like most offensive defenseman, he has a lot to improve on the defensive side of the puck. What is notable, though, is that every time he makes a mistake or turns over the puck on offense he puts in the extra effort to rectify his error and get back. That said, his motor can be pretty inconsistent, sometimes glimpsing superb competitiveness and stick-work, while at other times simply sitting back. His eagerness to jump up in the offense can lead to him lingering a bit in the defensive end or leaving his position prematurely. He also had too many miscommunications this season with his defensive partners, leaving opponents in dangerous areas of the ice. If you think he can improve his physical tools and clean up the inconsistencies in his defensive effort Tourigny could be a very interesting option as a draft overager.
