Wong’s IQ and awareness with the puck are extremely prevalent in his game. He’s a player with very good hand-eye coordination and strong puck control. When he builds speed on the with the puck, he’s good at using inside-out routes to create separation on entries. He also has the ability to pull and drag the puck laterally. He’s able to string sequences together by making quick and precise decisions to put pucks to space where sequential plays can unfold or there is an immediate scoring chance available. He’s a little bit hunched over when he skates, which can limit his balance when he wants to pivot or make a tight turn but his shin angle looks as though he has a couple eyelets out of his skates and he is able to move with explosivity. His skating is really a fluid stride which combined with top-notch balance allows him to adapt to moving pucks and the play developing. His edgework is tight and keep him in the play positionally. It allows him to close gaps and clog lanes effectively. That being said, he rarely used physical leverage to gain position on a player in any zone and rarely finished his checks when forechecking. He will much rather close the gaps and try to anticipate their passing around him. His agility and hand-eye allow him to jump on pucks; whether from rebounds or squeezed loose and he can direct pucks quickly. He could be a bit stronger on pucks and not situate himself so tight to opponents when he’s coming into possession of the puck but his skill and problem solving acumen is conducive with a style that will allow him to come out of such situations more consistently with time. He’s become a focal possession player who is a threat through the neutral zone with his deceptive approach and he’s also got that knack to find soft spots off the puck in danger areas where he can find handles rather quickly and present himself as a threat. He has quick hands but will need to continue to work on body positioning, his shot and using his dexterity to make more plays under pressure. He is strong in defensive scenarios and although he can be a little bit rash and lose assignments, he’s got a good foundation to go with.
