Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Solid all-around winger with a heavy shot who will have work to do on his skating speed. His lack of size may hurt him on draft day so will need to add some weight. He has committed to Boston University for 2019-20, so he’ll have several years to develop before the team that drafts him has to sign him." (Recrutes.ca 2017 Draft Guide)

• "An absolute fave of mine going back to his OHL Draft year, and he did nothing to change my mind about him this season. Farabee showed both great skill and smarts in all my viewings this season and heads into the 2018 NHL Draft season as one of my top-rated prospects." (Mark Edwards, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "He does an excellent job cutting and changing directions quickly to elude defenders with good stick skills. Farabee has good scoring touch, is a playmaker, and will create more draft attention (in 2017-18)." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
