Fantasy Summary

Exceptional skater with a technically sound stride and the ability to weave through traffic. Could take a while to reach the NHL but has potential as a playmaking top-six forward.

July 2022 – Goyette was drafted 61st overall by the Seattle Kraken as they continue the strong two days of drafting. Pat Quinn

 

December 2021 – Goyette is enjoying a nice rookie season in the OHL, averaging around 20 minutes of ice timer per game and sitting top-five in team scoring. A first-round pick in the 2020 OHL draft, he missed out on his first shot at playing in the league last season but has made up for lost time so far in 2021-22.

Goyette is a near-flawless skater who can handle the puck and execute at high speeds. Not only is he fast, but he is quick and shifty. Goyette pushes the pace in transition, forcing defenders onto their heels but knows when to slow the game down and let lanes develop. He shows poise with the puck on his stick and he is a decisive distributor who identifies his options quickly, routinely finding teammates in space with accurate feeds. He has a knack for drawing defenders towards him before dishing the puck. Though he is a bit undersized, Goyette competes hard and establishes good body positioning with intelligent routes in pursuit to help disrupt opposing possessions. He is another player who could take a while to reach his potential but he could eventually reward the patience of whichever team selects him. Nick Richard
