Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "A crafty offensive player with slick hands and skating ability. He can move the puck quickly, with good precision through the neutral zone, which allows him to play with speed coming into the offensive zone. Almquist sets the table well in the zone, especially on the power play. He can thread passes through lanes and has excellent vision and ability to read and adapt to the play. He has good offensive instincts and knows where he needs to be to get the puck." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
