Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "A smooth-skating defenseman who likes to rush the puck up the ice. ... He is capable of completing difficult passes or making the smart simple play. ... Does a good job at the offensive blueline knowing when to pinch and keeps the play going. Dennis is decent in his own zone but needs to show some improvements in this part of his game. He also lacks strength ... and would benefit from improving his build. (The 2017-18) season should be a big year for Busby." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
