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.
