Prospect Watch: Justin DiBenedetto

Local fans who watch Justin on a regular basis, gave their opinions of him, and this is what they were saying:

"He is a finisher. Looks great with a guy that can get him the puck and is very quick with a nice shot. Him and Stamkos had a lot of chemistry. It will be interesting to see him this season."

"Dibenedetto had an amazing year. He had 93 points i believe. He also played with Stamkos but Dibo set up a hell of a lot of goals. His passes are tape to tape and if he has a solid linemate with him they can work magic together. He see's the ice well and can make some pretty sick moves himself. I believe he has helped make Stamkos a better player and Stamkos has helped dibo be a better player."

"Has great offensive instincts his passing and shot accuracy as well as velocity is good, he doesnt have the speed that most skilled players have at his size which is pretty much all that kept him from being picked during his draft year, his skating is getting better and he's been an impact player at the OHL level, he's responsible defensively, and if he can get stronger legs and maybe alittle stronger overall he could be an offensive contributer one day at the NHL level.
