Observations

March 2019 – Walsh enjoyed a good freshman year but kicked it up a notch in his sophomore campaign. He had 12 goals and 19 assists with Harvard in just 31 games. He scored nine goals on the power-play as his abilities on the man advantage are something New Jersey sorely needs. His development is being monitored and Ted Donato expects to see Walsh for his junior year. He has evolved so much but there is a long way to go. Walsh could develop into an NHL top-4 defenseman in the next few seasons. Chris Wassel

June 2017 – An offense-oriented defenseman, Walsh excels at moving the puck quickly up the ice and rifling dead-on wrist shots. His presence and relentless play elevate game pace, particularly in transition when dishing crisp and accurate passes to teammates in full stride. This, combined with his somewhat slight frame contradicts the prototypical blueliner mold as Walsh functions almost like a dangerous wing at times. A beast on the power play. Can hold his own on defense but should focus on development in the NCAA. Diligent and competitive, he’ll certainly put in the time and effort to bulk up over the next few years at Harvard to help withstand the rigors of the professional game. Coached by ex-NHL/AHL father Mike in prep school, Walsh was a member of 2017 USHL champ Chicago Steel. Kevin Wickersham
