About Brendan Perlini:

Brendan Perlini was selected sixteenth overall in the first round of the 2012 OHL Priority Selection Draft  by the Barrie Colts.  Later on in the 2012-13 season he was traded to the Niagara IceDogs.

Offensive Buzzwords:  Very good stick handler with better than average puck skills.  He has good hockey sense and is able to hang onto the puck and distribute.  Good on-ice vision.

Skating:  Brendan Perlini is a very good skater with better than average speed and acceleration.

Defensive Buzzwords:  This is where Perlini’s draft position will be determined.  If he can improve his defensive awareness and commitment he can become a top level prospect.  This seems to be a work in progress.  Stay tuned.

Prospect Analysis:  Brendan Perlini was a late arrival to the 2014 NHL Draft rankings.  After a less than stellar rookie season he has been a fast rising 2014 draft prospect.  Brendan Perlini is one of the better skaters in the 2014 draft class.  His defensive game has improved and he works hard in all three zones.  Perlini is a player to definitely keep an eye on. He’s come a long way in a short time to being a potential Top 10-15 NHL Draft pick.

  1. Hi Mitch,
    I’m a sports fan in Phoenix although I don’t much follow hockey. I was however wondering if you might be able to help me with finding information on the local Phoenix team. Administrative type stuff. I understand that you probably would rather discuss the sport aspect of the team but just in case, please let me know how to contact you.

    Thank you,
