Fantasy Summary

A solid defender, with decent tools and a good IQ. He isn’t great at anything but doesn’t lack in one specific area of his game either.

October 2020 – Powell was drafted 116th overall by the Lightning. Powell is expected to spend at least two years in college before turning pro.  Jokke Nevalainen

September 2020 – One of the lesser talked about defenders in the 2020 draft, Powell put together a quietly good season with the U.S. National Team Development Program. He isn’t a flashy player but he does a lot very well and doesn’t have any glaring holes in his game. He is a smart puck mover who makes good, crisp passes out of his zone and has the skating ability to evade pressure in order to do so. He lacks high-level top-speed which can hurt him in puck races but he often anticipates the play well enough that he can get a step or two on the attacker. He possesses a big shot that he likes to use from the right faceoff dot, beating netminders more often than a player with limited upside and a slightly undersized frame would be expected to. He will be playing at Boston College next season, a great place for a defender to develop and grow into his game. Tony Ferrari
