Fantasy Summary

Smooth-skating defensive defenseman who can make the occasional strong breakout pass. Lacks offensive pop and struggles against the rush, but projects as a solid bottom-pair NHLer.

June 2024The big defenceman Colton Roberts should get a lot of attention on draft day for his ability to recover pucks in the defensive zone and seamlessly transition to offence. He’s a strong skater with a good shot, but the offensive game leaves a lot to be desired from Roberts. If he can clean up his rush defence and improve his offensive zone decision making, Roberts could find a role as a bottom pair NHL defenceman. Luke Sweeney
