Sam Bennett is a solid prospect for the Flames who showed a lot of promise this season. I’m definitely excited to see what the upside is to Bennett in the near future. He is a highly skilled forward who needs to get stronger but still has massive talent.

Assets: A highly skilled player, he also displays very good two-way acumen and the competitive fire of a future captain. Will also show a feisty side that’s tough to play against.
Flaws: Will need to get significantly stronger if he is to continue to play his abrasive style in the long run at the NHL level. Also, he must prove himself as a goal-scorer in the pros.
Career Potential: Talented, feisty two-way forward with good upside.
