Believe me, Duclair can get physical I've seen him make some pretty nice drive to the net and run a few players over. He's no agitator or anything but he can play the physical game quite well. That's one area where he could be more consistent I guess now that he's putting on the weight.

Duclair has a very good shot, very good gands, his vision is good for a kid his age but I don't think that will be his bread and butter. Duclair loves to carry the puck. He's a great skater, he plays very fast, he'd probably do better if he passed a bit more. At some point I gave poor man's Taylor Hall as an example but the Kane comparison is better to describe his game.

Where do we have Duclair ranked these days? I know he was injured, putting that aside, and pro rating his stats, he would be near the top of the league for pts.
