NHL Central Scouting’s Jack Barzee
"He has the hands, head, size and reach that coaches love. He's unselfish and smart, has good vision and a wicked release. When Mario Lucia has the puck on his stick, he makes everyone else better. When he's got the puck inside the blue line, he's a threat to score or set up a picturesque play … he's that dangerous.”

Wayzata head coach Carl Davis

"He has those things you can't teach as a coach. His instincts for the game are there … his playmaking ability and puck possession will be a huge part of his game as he matures and grows older. He's a dynamic playmaker. He protects the puck so well in traffic and uses that size to his advantage. He's a threat coming out of the corners. He works so hard in the weight room -- he's outworked everyone on my team. This young man has a passion to get better and he wants to get to the next level.”
