“He doesn’t have to physically initiate or make life difficult for players in order to be effective off the puck. His wing span gives him excellent length, and he’s good at counteracting deke attempts as well as blocking potential passing lanes with his stick placement. His skating ability, which features an excellent level of coordination given his frame, allows him to cover ground and eat up ice rapidly.” – (HockeyProspect, Black Book)

“He’s aggressive in coverage and challenges players quickly, which often ends up in play being swallowed up and back on his stick looking to counterattack. He is a commanding presence on the back end. Offensively, he has good hands, manages pucks well with a strength and softness but doesn’t play with a lot of flair or creativity.” – (FC Hockey, NHL Draft Guide)

“He makes you work for every inch of ice when he is out there. Guhle is also a strong mover, which allows him to be more aggressive without the fear that he cannot recover positionally. His initial explosiveness helps him to be quick to dump ins or to close gaps. In summary, his size and mobility help him to be a suffocating force defensively.” – Brock Otten (McKeen’s Hockey, NHL Draft Guide)

“He doesn’t take a shift off. A true leader. Communicates well. Poised and confident. Has some strong offensive tools as well. Has very good stick skills, high hockey IQ, and high-end vision. Makes crisp and accurate passes. Strong holding and corralling the pucks at the line. Has a heavy slap shot and a quick release wrist shot that he uses to get the puck on net.” – (Draft Prospects Hockey)
