VITALS

  • Age: 18
  • Position: RHD
  • Height: 6′-3″
  • Weight: 195lbs
  • Shoots: Right

ELITE PROSPECTS

Iorio on the breakout is basically Han Solo with a blaster: Well-placed laser-beam after well-placed laser-beam. He misdirects opponents by looking relaxed, even vulnerable, before firing. He looks off his target, skates into the lane, then holds the deception until the puck’s released, even for long-range, three-line passes.
