Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "The rangy winger has been on the scouting radar for a couple of seasons now, first catching international attention with his strong play at the Under-18's in 2016 as a 16-year-old. While he's never produced with any frequency at any of the Under-18 and Under-20 events he played in, he has impressed with his all-around game, size and skill." (Recrutes.ca 2017 Draft Guide)

• "Had scouts buzzing in November 2016 with some outstanding games." (Mark Edwards, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "A big kid who uses his size well along the boards to win puck battles and to create space in front of the net. He can score from in close and fight his way to the net. He'll need to improve his quickness and acceleration, but once he gets going, he has decent speed and can be tough to contain because of his physical strength. (In 2016-17) he had success at the Under-18 level in November at the Five Nations in Plymouth and also scored three times in five games at the 2017 World Under-18's. He struggled with very limited ice time at the 2017 World Juniors in Montreal -- he had trouble adjusting to the pace of the game. Eggenberger has a strong work ethic, showing a good commitment level at both ends of the ice." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Dominant winger who plays a hard, North American-styule game. Has a heavy shot. Big horse is almost impossible to stop once he builds a head of steam through the neutral zone -- just drives straight through defenders and crashes the net. He also made a number of terrific looks and feeds to linemates who were unable to cash in his set-ups. He's a no-doubt stud for the 2018 draft." (Red Line Report)
