I project him to be around the mid/end first round to early second round. Smart, speedy and skilled with the puck.
what a crazy statement this is....if Tolchinsky was 6'00 tall he would be top 3 with Barkov and Mackinnon....I had him ranked a bit lower in early drafts because when I saw him I think he was 5'5 or 5'6 but now at 5'8 with his skill he is for sure a 1st round and his skills are more impresseve than lazar, Shinkaruk and Monahan for sure and they are very skilled players.
