Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "More of a shooter than a passer, and likes to shoot from anywhere in the offensive zone. Even as a shoot-first type of forward, he has good enough playmaking skills to make diversified plays in the offensive zone and make himself more challenging to defend against for the opposing team. He's quick and also has very good shiftiness, with a capacity to avoid hits and change directions quickly. Denisenko will need to get stronger in the next couple of years."
