NHL Central Scouting’s B.J. MacDonald
"He moves the puck smartly and I like his size. He's not overly physical, but he uses his body well in positioning in his own zone. He plays the power play regularly and has an offensive creative side. His skating and mobility is good. Not flashy, but gets the job done. I like the way he thinks and he shows underrated potential."
Kamloops Blazers head coach Guy Charron
“Austin has very good offensive instincts and vision. He is a good skater and has an excellent feel for the game. A huge upside for Austin is his size and mobility in which he still has room to grow. His competitiveness and passion for the game is very evident in watching him play. Like most young defensemen, he needs to improve his defensive awareness and play away from the puck. Austin is a very bright individual having graduated highschool a year ahead of his age group. Overall, Austin is a very smart and instinctive player who continues to improve and get better everyday.”
