Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Confident, puck-moving defenseman committed to Boston University." (Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Skating and acceleration are this player's assets. Continues to impress with his hockey sense and offensive capabilities as a D-man. Not big in stature, but is not pushed around in any zone. Has ability to change game in a shift with either a rush up ice or simple one-on-one play." (Bryan Smolinski, ISS Scout)

• "He will have to clean up the defensive part of his game. Scouts like him, but were frustrated with the limited ice-time he received most of the season." (Recrutes.ca)

• "I've had an eye on Farrance since his PeeWee days. ... He certainly has nice tools with strength in stride, underrated shot, and ability to generate offense from the back end. If he commits and develops his game on the defensive side more, he will be a nice prospect down the road for one NHL team." (Russ Bitley, Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Shows real jump with the puck on his stick, and gains entry into offensive zone with impressive agility and stick skills. Mobile skater retrieves dump-ins quickly. Lack of size hurts him defensively against bigger forwards and when trying to shake free from tight checking. Boom-or-bust potential." (Red Line Report)
