Teleguine’s dynamic skill set makes him one of the more dangerous and fun players to watch in Western Canada. An elite skater who generates speed with little effort, his edge work is what sets the table for his skill game to be so effective. He can turn on the jets but is so hard to pin down due to his pace and the lateral explosiveness when a lane becomes available. He’s always moving his feet and is constantly changing the layout of the ice by creating new angles and space by getting early commitments and then capitalizing. His vision is top notch and he’s a dynamic playmaker who isn’t phased by taking risks. He has the patience to make a play through layers. Is driven with and without the puck on his stick but is able to show a strong top hand and control the puck through some tight areas and shield from threats. He has quickness and a good range of ideas which translate to action, and seems to lock the feet of defenders and find the right moment to move to an open area. He’s soft and precise with his approach. Has a really good release and able to get pucks into his wheelhouse quickly so he can find a good kick point and hit his target through an available lane. His speed is an obnoxious problem for defenders as he badgers opponents relentlessly when hunting pucks, finding the right angle to force rash decisions. Although not big physically he does fairly well asserting himself in battles, but the small-area game will need work. The big concern for him is how he commits himself when he isn’t the go-to play driver on his team. His tendency in the defensive zone is to circle the wagon in hopes of a fast break, seldom stopping on pucks or digging relentlessly to make the detail plays. He’s going to need to be a guy who can be trusted enough to get prime minutes and provide value if the offense struggles to translate.
