Mantha plays much less of a perimeter game than carter, although he is more than capable of beating you with a rocket of a shot from the circle. He skates very much like carter, and I'd even venture as far as to say he may very well be the best skater in the draft, which is outstanding considering his size (6'4" 200) but the defining characteristic that separates him from carter is his aggrrsiveness and willingness to use his body whether it be to gain position, power through defensemen, or throwing a hit.

He's also not at all afraid to drop the gloves and will stand up for his teammates at the drop of a hat.

I love this kid, he has all the tools to be an absolute star winger in this league, and I feel it's only a matter a time before people start talking about him more. I see his stock rising considerably by draft day.

He is exactly what this team needs outside of a #1 defenseman.
