February 2020 – After getting traded from Barrie to Saginaw, Suzuki has been on a tear, tallying 28 points in 18 games 11G-17A. One of the best pure playmakers in the Carolina system, Suzuki has continued to make progress scoring the puck as he has upped his projected goal output. He continues to show his phenomenal hands and touch while continuing to get stronger. Effort level has been questioned at times in the past, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him play in Charlotte next year for the Checkers. Jack LeGwin
June 2018 – As the first round moved on, a few forwards slipped farther than the consensus expected. Suzuki is a consummate playmaker, and as a pass first center he sees the ice better than most players in this draft. The pivot does a terrific job of setting his line-mates up in high-danger scoring chances both at even strength and on the power play.
He will continue to add weight and improve on the defensive side of the puck over the next couple developmental seasons, but expect him to be among the OHL’s top scorers in his draft plus one season. He’s certainly a guy who should go higher than 28 in dynasty league drafts based on his offensive ceiling. Kevin LeBlanc
