Not a liability in his efforts at all. He back checks, plays a solid F3 role when needed, very aggressive in trying to create turnovers and going the other way, but he seems to lean towards the offensive end at every moment.

The Q isn't known for it's defensive structures, so it is hard to gauge has not every team is like a London Knights where they employ a pro style of play in junior level. The best way to put it is that he knows what he can do physically against this current level of competition and does it consistently. That's why he has the gaudy totals. He shows up every game.

He isn't like a Kreider who takes chunks of games off, floating around looking lost and reacting every few games. Duclair knows his legs are what's going to get him in big league money. He uses it.

He is like a weird mix between a Grabner and EKane. If he had a more imposing physical dimension to his game, he would be more like EKane.
