Riley Kidney


Skills Summary

“Watching Riley Kidney it is clear if he is going to make it to the NHL one day, it is going to be as a bottom 6 specialist type player. He’s not a burner & doesn’t have any real elite qualities but is very smart and does a lot of the little things really well. He is an above average skater who likes to drive the play with his speed. He’s defensively responsible and his work ethic is solid. He’s also good at faceoffs and is a very good penalty killer. Kidney has got some playmaking skill too but he turns the puck over way too much for my liking.”

Kidney looks like a prospect who is good enough in most areas to get drafted, but will likely have to become more of a specialist at the next level if he’s going to make it”
