A playmaking forward with great positional awareness, Zegras has the innovative ability to create chances for teammates in all situations. A slippery and shifty skater, he has exceptional foot mechanics and clean edges that allow him to be evasive. He has some slick edges, which helps him quickly break out from his own zone while pushing the pace. He owns a decent top speed that helps him create separation in the neutral zone to join odd-man rushes effectively. He processes information quickly and plays the game at high speed. A dynamic and exciting player, he possesses a lot of high-end skills and tremendous creativity with the puck. A skilled and creative playmaker, he sees the ice well and can advance the puck to open teammates with sneaky passes through defenders. His playmaking abilities make him very unpredictable in possession of the puck and he’s able to find teammates easily from anywhere in the offensive end. His ability to gain the centre of the ice in a flash is a rare skill that is highly valuable. He has really soft hands which he uses to dangle through traffic without problem and excellent puck control on his backhand shot. He’s a dangerous finisher, who’s able to get in the right spots to become an offensive threat. He’s very evasive along the wall and able to emerge from board battles with the puck on his stick.
