Quinn Finley is a speedy, offensive-minded winger with good instincts and that allow him to be effective in the offensive zone. His pace is a strong asset for him .He can put defenders on their heels when he attacks them with the puck, using quick strides to accelerate to top speed and pull away from his opponents. He can be used as a primary puck-carrier, but he is at his best when he works away from the puck. He constantly keeps his feet moving, rarely remaining stagnant in the offensive zone. This makes it tough for the opposing players to keep track of him in the high-danger areas. His puck skills are not overly impressive, but he can flash the odd high-end skill play from time-to-time. He should be considered a project by scouts who are looking to draft him, as there some red flags in his game that would give teams pause about him. In the defensive zone, he has a tendency to be far too pedestrian, often focused on movements that aren’t his assignment and allowing his man to get behind him and into open ice for a prime scoring chance. The other issue with him is that he has some great tools but it’s hard to project how his game will translate to the next level. He has skill, but not enough to play a scoring role at the NHL level. He doesn’t have the adaptability to convert his game into a bottom-six style of player, either. It’s almost all-or-nothing in terms of his ability to contribute at the next level. That said, tere’s enough in his game to warrant a draft pick, but he’s the type of prospect that will require a lot of patience. Whoever drafts him will have to determine what style of game they want him to play and find a developmental path that will allow him to carve out the right role for him at the next level.
