Gauthier is a high-energy power forward-type player. He’s very impressive physically, especially for a player his age, and extremely hard to knock off the puck. When you combine this with his work ethic, you get a player who’s a pest to play against, whether he’s in control of the puck or pressuring you on the forecheck. I was very impressed with the hand-eye coordination Gauthier showcased in this game. He was able to control bad passes impressively while also batting pucks out of the air right to his stick. Gauthier definitely showcased his work ethic and physical game too and wasn’t afraid to finish his checks. When losing control of the puck, he made sure to keep the pressure on in the offensive zone, which also caused trouble for the opposition. Gauthier showed some nifty passing abilities and didn’t hold onto the puck for too long. Instead, he utilized quick passing plays to beat opponents. There weren’t too many parts of his game that I wasn’t happy with in this game, as I think he even showcased good support on the defensive side of the puck. If there’s one thing I would’ve liked him to show more of, it would be puck protection and driving to the net, as I felt he stayed on the perimeter a lot. All in all, I thought it was a very mature game by Gauthier, where he wasn’t trying to do it all by himself but still used his skills and strengths to both his and his team’s advantage. I do think he could have had a good shot at making Philadelphia’s roster next season had he not opted to stay in college for another year. That being said, another year of college hockey definitely will not hurt him, and the Flyers will be getting a very exciting player on their roster for the 2024-25 season.
