Harvey-Pinard is an industrious winger who brings a good skill level and great hockey sense. His overall top speed is below average and his acceleration is subpar as well. His agility is quite good down low and his edgework is good overall as he can make quick tight turns. He’s a low center of gravity type player with excellent balance. His puck skills are average, puck handling is very good and his puck protection is also pretty solid. His release overall is non-threatening but he does find a away to score from in tight around the net. Harvey-Pinard’s skillset is suited as a solid two-way penalty killer with an excellent sense of awareness. His hockey IQ is well advanced which attributes to his great defensive work and timing offensively. – JD

“Harvey-Pinard is not the biggest or fastest guy, but he plays with a big heart and doesn’t play on the perimeter at all. He’s always in the tough areas of the ice, competing against all the top players in the league. He’s more than willing to take some punishment in front of the net, in the slot or along the boards to make plays.” – (HockeyProspect.com)
