Fantasy Summary

Incredibly intelligent two-way center with solid playmaking tools. Skating needs work, but could develop into a third-line, penalty-killing specialist.

February 2024 – O’Reilly’s game flows through his processing. Offensively, he relies on his intelligence to find small pockets of space from which to operate, and often plays as F3 on forechecks to respond to sequences rather than lead them with a board battle win. Defensively, he identifies threats earlier than most, anticipates passes and picks them off, all while keeping a mental map of his surroundings. The puck skills won’t be a hallmark of his NHL game, but if the skating improves, the skill should translate. Hadi Kalakeche
