Celebrini is a dynamic and skilled dual-threat center who can change a game with just one touch of the puck. His shot and goal scoring touch really popped in this showing, with both his snap shot and one-timer making an impact on the scoresheet. Celebrini has a quick release on his shot and can release the puck while carrying it on the rush, allowing him to catch netminders off guard and score goals from medium range. His slap shot and one-timer add a potent threat to his game on the power play. He always needs to be accounted for when he’s on the ice, as he can let loose a rifle of a one-time shot from the circles to beat goaltenders or cause net mouth scrambles. Though Celebrini owns an excellent shot, he’s far more than just a goal-scorer. He’s a gifted playmaker who can find teammates with soft area passes or send crisp passes into high-danger areas to set up scoring chances. Celebrini is a smooth and skilled puckhandler, able to carry the puck through traffic, stick handle in tight spaces, and beat checks on the rush with his hands to open up space. His reads in the offensive zone are consistently good, knowing the right balance between pushing for offense without being reckless with the puck, and his effort in his own zone is also quite good. In future viewings, I would like to see Celebrini continue to work on his skating and overall speed to truly guarantee that he’ll be able to stand up to the quickened pace of the NHL, but this was an excellent showing where Celebrini looked the part of the No. 1 pick in 2024.
