TheHockeyWriters.Com has declared Phil Tomasino the top riser for May 2019. His rank jumped from 25th to 16th and many see him in the top 10 based on his recent U18 performance.

Tomasino will be a household name before long.
That is some quote.

I agree! The funny part about this is how he gained his rise to fame quietly without all the fanfare and hoopla like Akil Thomas. He got there through hard work without all the hype and marketing and will draft way higher than 51st. #ironic

AND if you get The Hockey News, Tomasino made the Draft Preview(he's #41).

Here's what a couple of scouts said about him:

#1: "If you get your body on him, he's easy to contain. But get your body on him. He's elusive. Those first three steps make it hard for defenders to close in on him."

#2: "This kid is a heck of a hockey player. He kind of bounced around after they made trades, and that kind of pushed him down the lineup and he didn't get the quality ice time that you want, but he's a smart player. He's got good speed, good hockey sense, good stick."

They did ding him for being very slight(at 6' and 181 lb.) and still needing to add muscle, but he's got a few years to work on that. As for best case, the magazine compares him to Ondrej Palat.
