Leading his team in scoring for the past 4 years, Luke Ellinas is a scoring machine but also plays a very good 200 foot game. Luke can play all three forward positions as he’s versatile and a quick learner and being one of the hardest workers in the draft class he has very few weaknesses and excels in all parts of the ice no matter which position. His 200 foot game is a crucial piece, that allows him to be one of the best 2006-born players in minor hockey. In his own zone he is positionally sound, he’s smart, and has the ability to read plays and break them up before they become a threat. In the neutral zone he protects the puck well and rarely turns it over and in the offensive zone he plays responsibly and doesn’t force the play. He wins faceoffs all over the ice and is trusted late in games to win crucial faceoffs. He has a top notch shot which contributes to his goal scoring ability however he also finds holes in the defense and sees the ice really well, this allows him to be in the right spot at the right time or be an open option for his teammates. Luke has a special talent that most young players don’t have which is the ability to make everyone around him better. This is another contributing factor to his offensive output. Luke though not an overly physical player does play the body when he needs to and forechecks hard in the corners often using his agility in his own zone to come out with the puck. Luke is a big part of his teams special teams playing on both the penalty kill and powerplay. As Luke develops he has the potential to be a trusted two-way player at the next level.
