A great offensive player, PJ Alexander is steadily rising in draft projections as he continues to mature both as a player, as well as physically. Alexander is a gifted player when the puck is at the end of his stick, able to make magic in a number of ways. The young centreman is able to utilize his speed and elite hands to maintain control of the puck in the offensive zone, with superb vision and skillset to make plays for himself and line mates alike. Alexander is as determined as they come in regards to passion for the game, a never say die attitude boosts his drive to chase the puck during in-game situations, as well as drives his motivation to improve his skill set off the ice. Alexander is a stellar player offensively, but his current size makes him susceptible to hard checks from opposing teams. With a fairly slim build, Alexander will need to find ways to become more effective physically, as his puck handling ability will only get him so far when it comes to getting physically daunting players off of his back. Alexander has incredible upside regardless of size however, a rare talent for his draft class. If Alexander can continue to light it up on the offensive side of the puck, while finding a way to improve his physicality, Alexander will become a prospect to watch in the near future.
