Scouting Report

Boeser is a good skater with good acceleration and speed, but what is more impressive is the way he maintains his balance. A pure goal scorer who can beat you in a variety of ways, Boeser is not afraid to get his hands dirty and fight for the territory that offers him the best chance to bury one. He has world-class scoring skills and possesses an arsenal of shots. He is one of the draft’s best at positioning himself to make the most out of a given play. And while he’s a very gifted playmaker with very good vision, he owns such a deadly shot that he was usually the go-to guy on the business end of set ups. Boeser is a unique talent in that he already owns an NHL build in addition to being very mature and humble. But he plays with desire and is a battler who continues to seek out scoring chances and makes plays no matter what the score or time remaining. The North Dakota-committ was dominant on the international stage as well.
