NHL Central Scouting's Jack Barzee
"Nathan is a very good skater with excellent passing skills; can stickhandle in and out of traffic well. He is a good playmaker and uses his linemates effectively. He was used in all game situations and was relied on heavily on a mediocre team. With maturity, he offers a good upside."
"Nate is an electrifying offensive player, the best that I have coached in 30 years. Nate has great, deceptive, top-end speed and he has the ability to get to that speed in just a few strides. He has great hands and is just now developing into the type of hockey player that he will eventually be. He is now physically maturing and he has great instincts for the game. He sees the ice exceptionally well and looks to make the best offensive play. I don't know where Nate's limit is, but I would like to think that he will make a great contribution to any hockey program in the future."
