Connelly is a high-risk, high-reward player who can 100% skate. He has a great stride, good knee bend, and smooth stride. He can get a step on a defender quickly and be gone because of his great burst. He has good hands and can stickhandle through players to get the puck where he wants it to go. Connelly is dangerous with space in the offense zone and does follow the puck to the net looking for change. He is a good passer and can make all types of passes, including short quick passes to get out of the defense zone or the nice and pretty pass to create for a teammate. Connelly’s speed and puck skills make him a scary score with a knack for being a playmaker, however he does have many concerning parts to his game. Connelly’s biggest concerns are his turnovers and his hockey smarts. He turned the puck over in all three zones. The offensive zone may not be a big deal if you are trying to create, but in the defensive zone I saw too many turnovers that led to high-danger chances for opponents. This continued throughout every area on the ice. I am also concerned about his hockey smarts as a result of this carelessness. He will turn the puck over in the defensive zone, but he will also try low-percentage plays in the offensive zone, leading to a turnover and opportunity for his opponent. His complete level was not impressive either. I have Connelly as an outside-the-first-round pick with lots of offensive upside, but a concern due to bad turnovers.
