Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "His skill level is high, and he was dominant at times in the WJAC. He needs to take the next step in Penticton. If he does, he is a first round talent for me." (Cass Bruni, Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "The combination of Tychonick's mobility and creative stickhandling ability creates open separation for him in the offensive zone and off the rush. He has a knack for freezing defenders and has very quick hands that give him the ability to stick-handle through traffic. Often he will have dominant offensive shifts, where he will have the puck on a string and undress a player on his way to generating a quality chance. He can deke in a variety ways, including drag the puck from side to side using his reach, stickhandling quickly and coordinating a change of direction with his hands." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "He may be the best blend of skill, smarts, and defensive acumen out of the whole bunch." (Red Line Report)
