Feisty, undersized winger with great hands, motor and defensive ability. Refining his puck skills could land him a middle-six, two-way role.

November 2023 – With Connor Bedard having graduated to the NHL, Howe was expected to step up and take a bigger role with the Regina Pats this season. And boy did he ever.
The undersized winger is now the captain of his team at 18 years old, and by far their leader in production and overall on-ice impact. His 28 points in 21 games so far with the Pats place him five points clear at the top of the team’s scoreboard. Often their lone forward when defending a 5 on 3 power play, often out in the last minute of the game to win a key faceoff or defend the lead, Howe is the go-to guy in Regina in defensive situations as well.
With solid skating, a high-end motor and surprisingly good board battle mechanics, Howe always outworks his opponents along the boards. His puck skills need refining, but he should easily work his way into an NHL middle six in the near future. Hadi Kalakeche (November rankings: 22nd overall)
