Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Plays like a power forward on the ice -- hits like a train and can be intimidating on the forecheck. ... Not afraid of dropping the gloves, and over the next three seasons, he will become one of the toughest players in the league. ... Doesn't have the skills and hockey sense to become a top offensive forward, but brings something to the ice that few players around the league can. ... Improving his speed and creativity should help Element improve his stock for the NHL draft." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
