Alex Pietrangelo Player Bio


Alex Pietrangelo

ON-ICE VALUE
First-Pairing Defenseman

STRENGTHS
Passing: Pietrangelo is a superb passer. He’s crisp and accurate on the breakout, and he moves the puck fluidly in the offensive zone to provide different points of attack. He’s always scanning the ice to find the best option available and shows the touch required to complete his setups.

Shot: In terms of both shot selection and effectiveness, he’s among the best blueliners in the world. He can fire powerful one-timers, but he’s just as dangerous when filtering wristers through traffic. He does well to skate or feint his way into open shooting lanes.

Hockey Sense: Especially on the offensive side, Pietrangelo displays picture-perfect timing and positioning. He’s continually in the right place at the right time, pinching to extend shifts on the attack, sinking into the slot to offer a high-danger target or presenting teammates with a safe outlet to reset.

WEAKNESSES
Consistency: While he’s as steady as it gets when he’s on, his game can be a bit of adventure when he’s off. His defense fluctuates between solid and porous, as he occasionally loses focus and begins puck-watching. He’s guilty of trying to do too much at times.

Skating: Generally speaking, Pietrangelo is a mobile 6’3”, 210-pounder. However, he’s more smooth than explosive. As such, he can struggle against today’s high-octane burners who gather a tidal wave of momentum through the neutral zone. In such scenarios, his gap control and coverage become subpar.
