Winterton is well-suited for the role of a depth forward, as what stands out on a shift-by-shift basis is his work ethic and commitment to playing a defensively reliable brand of hockey. He is generally well-positioned in his own zone and assists his defensemen in closing off passing lanes and taking time and space away from puck carriers. On the backcheck he is committed and more often than not hustles back to assist in transition defense. He is decent in the corner battling for the puck and is able to pick it up and get it back for his linemates. His physicality isn’t his calling card, but he can knock his opponents off the puck at any given time. Displays good hustle and good pace. In the offensive zone his greatest asset is his ability to forecheck and make life difficult on opposing defenders on the breakout. He could use some work in his overall edgework and strength on his skates, but when moving at top speed he moves about the ice efficiently and can get in on opposing defenders with strong speed, which leads to instances of successful forechecks and changes of possession. On the forecheck he also shows a willingness to play physically, lay the body and finish checks. With the puck on his stick he displays a lot of confidence. He is good at picking up speed in the neutral zone and attacking open lanes head on. He can find open space in the offensive zone and providing a passing option for his teammates. However, he is a fairly basic attacker and isn’t often successful at manipulating defenses to open up new attacking lanes, and will often miss his target while passing the puck. Overall, he projects well as a depth role player who has a lot of tools to work with, but will need to show growth in the offensive side of his game in order to play higher in a team’s lineup.
