Fantasy Summary

Crafty rush creator with quick hands and an accurate shot. Skating and defense need work, but has upside as a middle-six scoring winger.

June 2024 – Vanacker was selected 27th overall, the teams’ third first round selection. Pat Quinn


April 2024 – Vanacker is another player who took major strides over the course of the season. Vanacker is a good skater and projects as an above average skater at the NHL level. He has a good shot, good hands, and plays a decent two-way game as well. I’m not sure there’s enough high-end hockey sense or playmaking for him to find his way into a top 6 or PP1 at the NHL level, but his ability to score and play off the puck suggest he could be a solid 3rd line option on the wing. Jordan Harris
