Scouting Report:

Matthew Coronato is having a huge season for the Chicago Steel of the USHL; he has 31 goals and 59 points in 33 games in the 2020-21 season. That kind of production is tough to ignore, even if Coronato is one of the older players in his draft class. Coronato is committed to Harvard University. Although there is much to like about his game, Coronato needs to make some improvements to his game to thrive at the NHL level. Matthew is an offensively gifted winger with good instincts and a heavy shot. He has decent speed but needs to add quickness to his overall game to make the most of his abilities at the NHL level. He has great hockey sense and makes good reads in the offensive zone, often fading out of coverage up high before jumping back into a soft spot at just the right time to receive a pass and get a shot off. He also has good vision and does well consistently finding teammates in space. Coronato is short but stocky for his age and displays good strength protecting the puck, often keeping defenders on his back on the cycle while looking to make a play. Despite his lack of foot speed, he is a great forechecker and regularly disrupts breakouts. There is a lot to like about Matthew’s game but he needs to add some quickness to his skill set to take full advantage of his offensive instincts at the next level. At this point, Coronato looks like a 2nd round pick.
