Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Big kid with skill and compete level had great Under-18's en route to gold." (Hockey News 2017 Draft Preview)

• "Brady is fun to watch. He's a Tkachuk! Super-competitive, big-time player down low and around the net. He's going to score a lot of greasy goals." (Anonymous Scout, Hockey News 2017 Future Watch)

• "He brings "hard skill" and is great down low and around the net. He projects as a big-game, playoff goal scorer down the road that will tee off opponents along the way -- much like his brother Matthew. Not overly creative, and his skating needs to get better." (Recrutes.ca 2017 Draft Guide)

• "He plays a very intelligent game in reading plays with and without the puck. With his high hockey IQ and exceptional vision, he does a great job making plays around the net and slot area. He possesses a good knack in making those little plays in small areas and tipping shots out front, chipping passes into space to create opportunities, or battling with his body to protect pucks. He displays good stick skills and hand-eye coordination in the offensive zone to make plays." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Frequently sets the tone and scores a lot of the biggest goals. Prototypical power forward like his brother and father. At times intimidated with big hits, and always got to the net to either score greasy goals or create space for his linemates. Nice mix of size, aggression, nasty streak and puck skill."
