Talent Analysis

McLeod has a good nose for the puck. He grinds to get where he needs to be. He's got good speed, and decent hands. His shot is his best weapon offensively. He's not quite mobile enough to stickhandle past defenders. If he can stay healthy, he can play a tough style of hockey. McLeod's defense is underrated. He's a strong forechecker who doesn't give up on a play.

 

Future

A tough guy with average offensive skills, McLeod brings a physical presence.
