Haskins is a skilled center who possesses good hockey sense and two-way instincts. He is a very good skater with tons of speed and agility. He handles the puck well and is a creative playmaker. He has a good shot and is dangerous around the net. He is also responsible defensively and works hard all over the ice. He needs to add some more bulk and play more with an edge in order to become even better defensively.
