9/7/18 | While describing his skill level, Gordie Clark said that while Buchnevich will score on a slap shot once in a while, "his passing ability is on another planet." (SI)
Buchnevich's agent said that when Buchnevich feels he has been "slighted" it puts him in a bad mood and that "when he's pissed off, he can produce." (SI)
Alain Vigneault said of Buchnevich in March, "there is some learning, there is some adjustments, Buchie is going through that like any young player like I've had in my career. There is a learning curve, peaks and valleys and Buchie is a lot like younger players. There is a tremendous amount of upside with that young man, we just have to work with him to get it more consistent."
Vigneault said that when Buchnevich struggles it is usually because of his decisions with the puck and that "you get to making the right plays by working on your game, improving your knowledge and understanding and there are less of those when you become a better and more experienced player."
