Scouting Report:
Luca Cunti has a great offensive hockey sense. He has huge playmaking abilities and sets up plays very well. He has an accurate pass and receives passes well, though he sometimes tends to do too risky passes. He has good skating agility and can change directions fast, however is not an explosive skater and his first steps could be faster. Cunti has great stickhandling and moves smoothly into the offensive zone. His play away from puck in the offensive zone is average, he anticipates the game well but needs to screen goalies better instead of only waiting for the rebound. His wrist shot is accurate, though he doesn’t use his full arsenal and needs to shoot more often. Clearly the biggest room for improvement is his defensive- and physical game. He stays away from any physical contact and his play away from puck within defense zone is poor, doesn’t go into board battles.

NHL Potential:  
Playmaker (but as of today not good enough to compete at NHL level!)

Style compares to: Joe Thornton (not from a size perspective)
