Observations

March 2020 – In his third WHL campaign, Mutala has once again raised his goal- and point-scoring rate which is always a good sign of development. Turning 19 before the season’s end, he has surpassed the point-per-game mark with 67 points in 62 matches while also reaching a career-high PIM rate with 58. One reason for his production surge is his regular use on the powerplay which was a rarity in 2018-19. He’s acclimated well, leading his team in PP goals and points. Given his exceptional shot volume (nearly 4/game), his production is coming sustainably, which is another great sign. The Avalanche banked on a year of growth after family health scares limited him during his draft year, and they are being rewarded for the gamble. That being said, the shifty weapon on the wing does not have an ELC in place and will likely return to the WHL for one more run in 2020-21. Keep him on your radars, but he isn’t worth a pickup quite yet. 

 

June 2019 – The Avalanche have selected Mutala in the 5th round of the NHL Entry Draft.
