Vatrano is one of those players that can be drafted and then allowed to development with a quality college program like BC. His offense will play as he develops his all-round game.
What they’re saying:
Average skater who has a deadly shot. Gets to the open spots to receive the puck and let it fly. Long term prospect.

Vatrano brings scoring prowess to the offensive table and that’s a commodity every NHL team needs and covets.
