Scouting Reports:
“Offensive defenseman with a well-rounded skill set, Makar is an elite package of offensive tools with a quick skating stride, excellent vision and passing ability, and a capable point shot that he used to notch 24 goals for Brooks in 2017. Captained Canada West’s U19 team, where he tallied 8 pts in 4 GP.” – Brandon Holmes, Riding Pine Hockey

“A quick little defenseman that is a complete and dangerous offensive package…a fantastic skater… an effortless stride and light feet…loses no speed in transitions and is difficult to lock down as he can change directions on a dime…excels at walking the line with various feigns and stutter steps to open up shooting and passing lanes…doesn’t posses a cannon but a solid shot with an ability to surprise goaltenders…has smooth hands and shows an ability to dangle through defenders…instincts and smarts with the puck are elite and he is a driver of offence…has high level awareness in all areas on the ice and has an innate understanding of how the play is developing…doesn’t have ideal size for a defenceman however and could use added strength for battles down low…defensive positioning can use refinement…overall a skilled offenseman who passes with purpose and accuracy and fits the mold of a puck moving defenceman at the NHL level.  (November 2016)” – Future Considerations
