2023 NHL Entry Draft

Film Room: Why Gracyn Sawchyn is worth a top-15 pick in 2023 NHL Draft

There’s no consensus on Gracyn Sawchyn

For some outlets, he’s a second-round pick. Others, he’s a late-first. Some rank him outside the top-64 altogether. 

Elite Prospects lands the highest, placing him 13th in a loaded draft class. The reasoning? 

Sawchyn is one of the draft’s most skilled players, with flashy, projectable puckhandling and playmaking ability. And he blends those skills with an ultra-aggressive, translatable style of play.  

Think Andrew Cristall, Leo Carlsson, or even Will Smith – that’s the level of handling skill that Sawchyn has.
