2021 NHL Draft: 5 under-the-radar WHL players to watch

Iorio has filled out physically and that strength has translated to more width to his game, both defensively and with the continued improvement of his skating. His use of his edges and adaptation to travel on angles instead of straight lines, with his head up, has made him a more equipped player in transition and in his ability to make a play. He does have some consistency issues making the best play in some more complex sequences but he is overall more efficient in his play, using one touch movements, under handling in motion, scanning to up ice to find outlets and then supporting the play by following his pass to provide himself as a late option. His off-puck game is strong as well, facing plays to cleanly handle passes, giving weak-side options to his partner, and make a precise follow-up play. His cognitive approach to bring more pucks to the middle of the zone and feeding false information to control feet is an area which will go a long way in how he opens up lanes and exploits top of the circle opportunities to generate shots or passes. He isn’t the most efficient or effective shooter but he does have a level of patience and takes a more transferrable approach for a player who could deem this as a weakness. Defensively, Iorio will need to improve on his defensive skating and how he handles speed off the rush. Using C-cuts instead of crossovers later in sequences will help him keep his gaps tighter and keep him square so that he can weight shift to close a play down. He can get overwhelmed at times by speed and even though there’s been astronomical growth in this area, foresight and maybe playing a little bit too tight at the top of the offensive zone will likely help along some issues. He’s better at denying slot chances but on some plays, the stick positioning and pressure presented don’t really push opponents to put pucks into disadvantageous areas. There are times when he simply appeared flat footed without a dynamic base to shut a play down. Overall, there is an excellent base in Iorio to build on.
