Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Shows some good hands around the net -- making some timely drives to the crease and punching goals past goalies, especially on the far side sneaking behind defenders. Strong on-ice awareness -- he sends some pinpoints set-ups across the crease with accuracy and fares better as a center with more frequent puck touches. Defensively intelligent. ... Top speed is about average. ... Not flashy but Topping is solid two-way pivot that complements skilled players." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
