Very smart offensive defenseman, and can find open players with ease. He does not shoot enough though and he is under-sized for a defenseman. Needs to add strength
Pillar is a versatile playmaker who utilizes his strong skating to create space and also backtrack on defense. Despite being undersized, Pillar is always engaged and isn’t afraid of going to the dirty areas to make a play. Capable of playing at center and the wing. Although you shouldn’t expect great point-scoring statistics from Pillar, you can count on him to be consistent with SOG and hits.
Highly productive playmaking centerman. Great speed through the neutral zone, excellent puck handling skills. Undersized, which will hold him back, but has enough skill to eventually overcome the size deficiency. Natural centerman but will likely end up on the wing at the professional level. Tufto’s fantasy value will come in the form of goals, assists, and SOG.
