Trevor Moore Scouting Report

Courtesy of SBN College Hockey:

Strengths
Moore possesses tremendous hockey sense and puck skills making him an incredible offensive force. He sees the ice well and understands how to get to the right spot on the ice at the right time to create offense. He’s very comfortable with the puck on his stick and likely projects as more of a set-up man, but is capable of finishing off plays as well.

Weaknesses
The big area of concern for Moore is his size. Being well under six feet tall in itself isn’t necessarily a problem, but Moore’s style of play isn’t necessarily what you see out of smaller players that make it in the NHL. His skating is good enough to be average, but likely won’t be a big asset to him. He doesn’t play a heavy, physical game for his size either.
