“Biondi is much more of a shooting center than a puck distributer at this stage. His first instinct is to shoot the puck on net, uses his quick hands to deceptively change the angle to freeze goaltenders and can place the puck accurately with his one-timer. Blake does some good things off the cycle game where he seems more willing and able to pass the puck and find open guys in the zone than he does off the rush or in other offensive zone situations.” – (HockeyProspect, Black Book)

“Can stickhandle in tight and make off-balance plays look easy. His release is quick, and the puck jumps off his stick, creating a strong shot that gives him potential to be a sniper at the next level. As he continues to develop his size, his strength will make him very tough to play against in corners and in front of the net, two areas he dominated at the high school level.” – (FC Hockey, NHL Draft Guide)

“Winner of the Minnesota Mr. Hockey award, Biondi failed to have much impact on the scoresheet over ten games with Sioux City, but he was still driving possession. The Minnesota-Duluth commit has a strong shot and impressive offensive instincts and vision. He will need to improve his pace at the next level.” – (McKeen’s Hockey, NHL Draft Guide)

“A skilled, puck magnet. Not a pretty skater but has quick feet to gallop around the ice with speed. Has good edge work that he utilizes to weave around defenders. Strong on the puck. He finds open spaces allowing him to use his heavy shot. Strong along the boards. Has skilled, quick hands and showed off lots of creativity with the puck on his stick.” – (Draft Prospects Hockey)
