NHL Director of Central Scouting, E.J. McGuire

Strengths: "Zach is a big player and he plays defense very big. Zach’s combination of skating ability and his size are what set him apart. There are some bigger, taller defensemen, who have to grow into their body, but Zach is right there, fully proportioned and ready to make that step into the NHL very quickly."

 

Areas to improve: "He is learning each game, when to make the right choice of supporting a rush or leading a rush. There are times in the past where he has got caught up the ice at inopportune times, but his game is getting smarter and smarter with every progression."

 

Outlook: "To the surprise of many scouts he has been overlooked on a lot of Team USA international selections. But the Peterborough Petes like that because he has been all theirs and soon he’ll be a franchise player for a National Hockey League team, even at this tough defense position. He projects as possibly the first overall pick if it’s a team that needs a defenseman right away and he could go number one depending on the viewings and opinions that he’s gotten from a team’s staff."

 

Peterborough Petes head coach Vince Malette

“Zach is a very physical defenseman who is a complete player.  He’s solid defensively and at the same time he can skate with the puck and never loses any speed when he has the puck. He is very competitive and that separates him from other defensemen in the league.”
