Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "A strong skater, Ginnell looks comfortable carrying pucks -- making quick lateral cuts to hits gaps in coverage. He can utilize some shifty hand movements to create space to distribute pucks while making good use of his backhand to protect and pull them away from defenders. ... Best viewings came in (2017) playoffs, working well in an offensive role, and playing at a high-end tempo. ... He worked hard on the cycle using his body and reach to protect pucks."
