A quick, flashy offensive-minded forward, Hoglander likes to carry the puck in the neutral and offensive zones. Because of his speed and mobility, he is hard to defend. He is lightning quick and can dance through opposing defencemen with quick, darting movements with or without the puck. A very good passer in the offensive zone, he reads the game well and can make quick plays to drive the pace of the play up on the power play. His playmaking abilities stand out as he finds his teammates with hard and accurate passes, both from short and long range. His vision is excellent and his decision-making with the puck is impressive. Despite his small size, he likes to drive to the net and can get past defenders by stickhandling or outskating them. A smart player that thinks the game well, he sees openings before he receives the puck. He can struggle along the boards due to his size and lack of upper body strength and isn’t as competitive in the defensive zone as he is in the other two zones or when he has the puck. Improvement is especially needed on the defensive side of the puck where he seems to shy away from blocking shots and doesn’t always play sound positionally. At times he looks listless in his own end, but overall he competes hard despite a smaller stature. He needs to continue rounding out his game.
