Speed is Paul Byron’s calling card and he makes sure to use it to his advantage during every shift. He has an excellent first step and is able to accelerate quickly, pushing him past his opposition and into scoring areas.
Byron is also a deft puck handler, using his raw skill along with his speed to dictate the play. He reads the ice very well and is able to get into open areas to set up his teammates or get a shot on net. His puck distribution skills are top notch.
