July 2022 – Furlong has been selected in the fifth round of the 2022 NHL Draft by the San Jose Sharks. Nick Richard

June 2022 – Furlong put up solid numbers and played a big role for the Mooseheads this season, finishing with four goals and 38 assists in 67 games. He has good mobility on the back end and can quickly turn a loose puck retrieval into a slip pass to a supporting forward or protect it along the wall to wait for help. His skill doesn’t stand out but he can shake the first layer and start the rush with a clean first pass or by skating it out of his own zone. In the offensive zone, he isn’t flashy but he will jump into the play when he sees an opening and he facilitates from the point with composure. Furlong plays a solid defensive game, utilizing good footwork and an active stick to deter oncoming attackers off the rush, and he rarely overextends himself in defensive zone coverage. A smooth skater who can do a little bit of everything on the back end but doesn’t excel in any one area, he likely tops out as a two-way third-pairing defenseman but he has a good chance of reaching that ceiling.
