Tyrell Goldsmith improve a lot of the course of the season. He’s developed into a well-rounded two-way defenseman that can positively contribute to the game on both sides of the puck. Blessed with superb physical tools, Goldsmith has noticeably taken some time work on his fluidity. Goldsmith is an up-tempo defenseman that applies high levels of pressure on puck carries. He’s a very good skater for his size, good speed and good forward/backwards skating ability. Uses his skating prowess to his advantage by taking direct angles to the puck carrier and forcing him to make a decision. Goldsmith plays a bit of a rover type of game in his defensive zone, something he can and will improve upon once he continues to grow as a player. Puck skills are not great and at times he can have tunnel vision, losing sight of other players on the ice. A projectable player with all the tools to be a top four WHL defenseman.
