The 6' 1" Saad isn't agile but is a powerful skater who can get himself in scoring position. Because of his strength he is able to win a lot of battles in the corners. He has a hard, heavy shot and is able to pick the corners. He is said to be very responsible defensively.
Coming into the season Saad was considered a top 10 prospect but second half struggles will now put him outside the first ten picks. Saad attributes his tough end to the season to a groin injury. He could be a value pick with 30+ goal potential.
Saad has been criticized for not using his physical gift enough.
From Central Scouting...
"Brandon has very good speed and agility and that makes him dangerous, he's solid on his skates and fights through checks very well. He plays a solid two-way game and is very responsible defensively."
Here's a Q&A Saad recently did with Buzzing the Net.
