Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Farren is a great story, and I think he is only going to get better with more confidence. His on-ice vision is exceptional." (Cass Bruni, Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Slightly undersized, and relies on his smooth stride and edges to create space and avoid contact. He has relatively quick feet, and he uses these skills effectively, proving to be slippery in tight areas. ... His vision and play-making skills are very good and he has lots of room to grow offensively. He is a natural play-maker, and it is unclear how good of a scorer he can be. Although his offensive skills show promise, he does struggle at times with contact as he will need to get stronger to compete harder in these areas. ... Expect Farren to continue to grow offensively and be a big point producer." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
