August 2023 – Tyler Bertucci’s strengths include his silky smooth skating and his elite hockey IQ. While he is not quite classified as a puck-moving defenseman, he is very good at protecting the puck and uses his excellent hockey sense to make quick decisions with the puck. Bertucci can initiate a breakout and is very accurate in his passing. However, the main component of Bertucci’s game is played on his own end. He is a shutdown defenseman and is able to get good reads and anticipate plays before they happen. Standing at six feet, two inches, he is not the most physical defenseman, but he uses his body to create space and be a force around the boards. He also is very good with his stick, getting it in lanes and breaking up passes. If he can develop an offensive game to match his defensive prowess, Bertucci could be a second-round steal.
