Price produced a whopping 55 points this past season with the Saskatoon Generals. Price is another excellent skating defenseman with good size who loves to rush the puck up ice and activate into the offense whenever he can. An agile skater who can change direction well and speed possess problems for defenders. Price has a really good shot that has plenty of power being it and definitely has a shoot first mentality. He’s a smart player who is more of a goal scorer but does have good passing ability and moves the puck up ice well usually. Price is inconsistent at times in the defensive zone with his positioning and picking up his man but does do a good job on the rush keeping good gaps driving players wide. He isn’t an overly physical player but picks his spots to throw some pretty big hits and will battle hard in the corners and net-front.
