GP: 60 G: 21 A: 42 PTS: 63 PIM: 119Overview:
Max Pacioretty is viewed as a power forward that already has good size for being just 18 years of age. A native of New Canaan, Connecticut, Pacioretty is ranked 16th among North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final draft rankings. He will attend the University of Michigan this fall, after completing his first and only season in the United States Hockey League.
Along with his power game, Pacioretty’s strengths are his skating ability and good wrist shot. He is also very good in the faceoff circle, and works hard at both ends of the ice. His presence around the net could use improvement, as could his overall hockey sense.
Pacioretty was selected to participate in the 2007 USHL Prospects/All-Star game. Prior to the USHL, he played for The Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut.The Flyers say…
“Max Pacioretty is a good-sized kid, who works extremely hard. He’s plays up and down the ice and has a little edge to him. He moves really well and has decent hands.”– Director of Hockey Operations Chris PryorScouting Video:700K Up next:
