Vehovsky is a big left-handed winger who, particularly for his size, flashes solid stickhandling abilities and soft hands in tight areas. He handles the puck at top speed very well and is able to beat defenders off the rush. He has the scoring drive — he shoots a lot and goes hard to the net. I thought Vehovsky has a good shot with quick release. He can snap the puck quickly from both legs, dropping the weight generating a lot flex and power. His first step is not excellent, but I thought he’s shown improvement in that area over the season. Once he gets in the motion he moves easily around the ice with good speed. Vehovsky is strong on his skates, he battles hard for pucks, wins positions, and keeps balance along the boards. I liked his willingness to compete hard for 50/50 pucks and his ability to win these pucks more often than not. He works good with his stick and body against the puck. Vehovsky made some good passes in the offensive zone but I do not think his playmaking is on a level to produce at the highest level. Too often he does not consider his option in the middle of the ice and he does not create lanes or space for his teammates with the puck on his stick. He does not scan enough on breakouts under pressure when passing the puck to the center which may lead to dangerous situations for his team. He has defensive potential with his long reach, big body, and reliable play all over the ice but he did not move his leg enough on some occasions. He made couple bad reads and was not in the right lane because of no shoulder checks. Big forward with stickhandling skills, fast skater, and a competitor. Does not create or produce enough offensively. A possible late round pick in the 2023 draft but far from a lock in my opinion.
