Connor Brown is quietly putting together quite a solid year. He's a very skilled player who protects the puck extremely well, especially for his size. He's also got great hands and has knack for burying pucks in tight. He's got a great shot too, hard and accurate. His release is a little inconsistent, but when he gets it off it causes some trouble for goalies. He seems like a very good leader and competes every night. My concerns with him are his skating and hockey sense. He has an awkward stride and isn't the fastest guy. He also has very poor acceleration. His hockey sense is pretty poor too. He doesn't read the play very well and his positioning is often bad. He doesn't have the best vision either and tries to force plays.
If he improves his skating I think he could become an NHLer, he's way too raw at this point to start making projections though. He's a talented kid with solid work ethic. One of my favourites for a late round pick this past draft.

What's with Leafs fans and comparing their prospects to Galchenyuk?
