“An undersized forward with elite playmaking ability, Sean Farrell has come into his own this year. He’s an adept passer and finds teammates in dangerous areas on offence. He’s just so damn smart and creative with the puck on his stick, and he’s not afraid to try highly difficult passing plays either.” – (EliteProspects, NHL Draft Guide)

“Farrell is a hard-working, skill winger who favours passing over shooting… In general, he is more of a facilitator for offense than a true driver in our opinion. He has some quick hands and strong but subtle playmaking ability, but his skill level isn’t “next level”. Plays rarely die with him and he shows plenty enough creativity, but we think he tops out as more of a complementary piece than a primary one at the end of the day.” – (HockeyProspect, Black Book)

“A dynamic and versatile two-way forward, he has a quick stride and moves fluidly up the ice. He uses his slick edges and smooth turns to accelerate and while he is fast, his overall top speed needs work. He will hustle to chase the puck and always seems to identify open ice for quality rushes.” – (FC Hockey, NHL Draft Guide)

“His wrist shot is very heavy and accurate and features a tricky release, enabling him to score from the high slot or closer. He has a lot of puck touches and reads the game well, allowing him to get the drop on a goalie who might not be perfectly positioned… but Farrell carries the puck with speed and skill. He can protect the biscuit in traffic and uses his edges and quick passes to escape pressure, often leading to the creation of scoring chances.” – Ryan Wagman (McKeen’s Hockey, NHL Draft Guide)

“Controls the puck at very high speeds. Playmaker with excellent hockey sense and vision. Goes to the gritty areas despite his lack of size. Protects the puck. Has an accurate shot with tricky release. Constantly fighting for body position around the net. Plays in all situations. Plays with tons of energy and is tenacious on the forecheck to terrorize defenders.” (Draft Prospects Hockey)
