Tyler Brennan uses his edges really well to push with power, shift direction and control his mobility. He can go post to post with speed and accuracy. He enters the posts in control and locks-in establishing a vertical seal with his pad along the lower post and his body and active hands protecting the upper post. He quite possibly has the best projection in this draft class and much of the interest in him revolves around the combination of his NHL-ready frame and his unusually high-level of athleticism for a prospect of his size. He shows a high hockey IQ with his situational breakdowns and ability to read attack sequences. He has really strong lateral movement and can do so in control that’s in keeping with his overall calm approach. He tracks pucks well, can employ a variety of saves depending on the surrounding circumstances and can close off his five-hole quickly and maintain a compact form dropping into his butterfly or entering and exiting from a slide. He can sometimes react slowly and give up goals that are very saveable on shots that are in tight to his body, especially on his glove side. He also needs to improve his decision-making when he comes out of the net for pucks, as he will occasionally get jammed up behind the net, and he tends to simply fire the puck away rather than doing something constructive with it. Both of these concerns are fixable and can be addressed in the near future through focused instruction. Going forward, Brennan’s development plan will be crucial in the coming years to help him reach his potential, but one thing seems apparent – he is more than just a draft piece to add positional depth to an organization. He’s likely the most coveted goalie in the draft.
