Fantasy Summary

Playmaking specialist with decent hustle and vision. Rounding out his toolkit could see him become a middle-six forward.

February 2024 – Clarke Caswell was favourite of mine in early November and, while he hasn’t elevated his game a ton since then, he has maintained his play, chugging along at just over a point-per-game despite the smaller role after his Swift Current Broncos acquired Connor Geekie. Caswell’s calling-card is his playmaking game which is one of the best in this WHL class. Between his vision, deceptiveness, puck protection, timing and middle-lane focus, Caswell is equally adept at finding streaking teammates off the rush as he is turning a low offensive zone turnover into a backdoor play. Caswell wins battles well enough, but with so-so strength and positioning, he’s not a great defensive player. In addition to OK footspeed and shooting, its obvious that Caswell is not a very well-rounded player, but banking on the playmaking skillset, its possible seeing him fitting into an NHL bottom-nine. Luke Sweeney
