Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Average-size player who is not tall, but has good strength and balance. He has good hockey sense. Can score and make plays, but not an elite offensive player. He battles for the puck in all area. Pursues the puck and can win battles. Works hard without the puck. Played the point on the PP." (Phil Myre, ISS Scout)

• "Best offensive asset is his feet, and his other skills are complementary. His one-on-one puck-handling ability is serviceable, and he can move the puck laterally quick enough to take advantage of vulnerable defensemen. Zetterlund creates turnovers because of his feistiness and relentless pursuit of the puck, and he has taken advantage of the many opportunities he creates from these turnovers. He has a quick release that surprises goaltenders and can score from distance. As well, he can shoot the puck when at top speed and get the puck up quickly around the net."
