Kai Janivariya has a style of play that coaches and scouts love to see in a top-pairing defenceman. Janivariya is a quick, smooth skating blue-liner who thinks the game at a high-level. He is able to read plays better than most and anticipate and react to situations as if he had glanced at the other teams playbook. Everything about Janivariya’s game is fast including his footspeed. The Compuware defenseman can take the puck up the ice seamlessly and is confident in the offensive zone. His offensive game is a major strength of his game as he is a dangerous player on the rush and can draw defenders in with his smooth skating and dishes the puck out with a perfect tape-to-tape pass to create dangerous scoring chances.
