Miedema is a playmaking winger who is at his best when he can facilitate and defer the puck to his teammates. His vision and passing ability are his best assets, as he can spot open lanes as they develop and take advantage of that by delivering crisp and accurate passes to his teammates. With his size and skating ability he can be an effective player both out of the cycle and off the rush, but I think he needs to work on his explosiveness in order to take his game to another level. His defensive game, and ability to be effective in 50/50 puck battles allows him to be an effective board player in his own zone, but I would like to see him use his body and assert himself physically a little more often. Playing against a smaller forward group in Niagara it was a golden opportunity for Miedema to use his size to his advantage and I feel like he left a little to be desired in this game. The transition to a weaker team in Kingston has obviously hurt his production a little, but he is still playing well and using his skillset to his advantage, I think he’s a middle or late round draft pick who can develop into an effective bottom-six forward at the NHL level. He has a good foundation of skills that will allow him to contribute offensively and has the body type to be useful in a checking role. I think I would feel comfortable drafting him anywhere from the 90s-100s in the 2023 draft right now. My hope for Miedema is to be a third-line two-way player that contributes in all three zones.
