May 2022 – It is tough to judge Tomasino on his rookie season. At no point in the year did head coach John Hynes use him in an expanded role for a consistent period of time. Tomasino’s ice time was between 11 and 13 minutes, with the odd games going slightly under or over that range. However, even by averaging just 11:32 minutes per game, he was an efficient scorer at even strength. His points per 60 at 5v5 was 1.74, which ranked 14th out of the 61 qualified rookies. He is a future top-six winger for Nashville and simply needs the opportunity to show that. With his mix of speed and skill, he is the most likely U23 skater in the Predators’ organization to reach an all-star level.

December 2021 – Since arriving in the NHL, Tomasino has instantly found his footing, even in limited playing time. Skating in just 12 minutes a game on average, Tomasino has contributed five goals and nine points in 26 games while being used on the powerplay as well. As he continues to prove his NHL readiness, expect head coach John Hynes to increase his usage throughout the season.
