July 2022 – After a point-per-game season in the USHL this past year with the Youngstown Phantoms, Ingram will be moving on to the NCAA to play for St. Cloud State University. Ingram’s strengths are his NHL-caliber shot and high hockey IQ, but he struggles in utilizing his 6-2 frame to its fullest extent. Two to three years in the NCAA will go a long way in his development. Curtis Rines

July 2022 – Ingram was selected 82nd overall by the Nashville Predators. Pat Quinn

January 2022 – Ingram is a talented playmaking forward with good offensive upside. He has solid puck skills, vision, and hockey sense which help him rack up assists, but he lacks high-end skating ability and his two-way game is still a work in progress. His passive style of play often results in him being late in support of his teammates but he remains in the middle of the ice where he is able to contribute in all zones. He takes care of the puck, never forcing unnecessary plays or taking risky opportunities, which helps his point production and limits transition chances for the opposition. Ingram utilizes clean strides and explosiveness in his skating when he has space in front of him, however, he does lack consistent intensity.

Ingram has produced at a high level for Youngstown in the USHL this season, ranking eighth in the league in points and first among draft eligibles by a wide margin. It should be noted, however, that a majority of his production has come via the powerplay, where Ingram shows off his patience and smart puck-moving abilities. The 2003-born forward is one of the older players eligible for the draft, but his impact thus far has gotten him some potential first-round buzz. The Manitoba native has taken the unconventional route for Canadian-born players, as he’s expected to attend St. Cloud State University next season after he completes his USHL campaign. If he can continue producing at this rate, earn more even-strength points, and increase his involvement in the play, he could be considered a first-round prospect come draft day. Evan Pace
