Scouting Report

"Clague's skating is strong and he can elude defenders while being checked or start an offensive play. He has excellent vision when moving the puck, makes a solid first pass out of the zone and is a composed player who makes good choices under pressure." - Dan Marr, NHL Director of Central Scouting

"He's an excellent skater and while teammate Ivan Provorov is the guy on defense for Brandon, Kale's the secondary guy. He plays within their system, the way they want him to play." - John Williams, NHL Central Scouting
