Vierling is a defensively reliable, high-motor, two-way player, and a credible dual-threat scorer in the offensive zone. He's actually pretty enthusiastic about mucking it up in the most hotly contested parts of the offensive zone. He's even willing to take the puck there himself if he has to. He's also a credible shooting threat, even at intermediate range

Vierling was the No. 2 overall pick in his OHL Draft. He was good but not great during his one-and-a-half seasons in Flint, but really took off following a trade to Barrie, scoring 34 points in 28 games. Vierling is a skilled player with very good offensive IQ. He is a guy who makes plays in the offensive zone and can be a half-wall player on the power play. He isn’t an overly physical player, but he doesn’t shy away from getting to the net. Watching him over the past two years, I wouldn’t say he’s a dynamic player; and given his average footspeed that results in him being a bubble NHL prospect. It’s hard to ignore his productive season and that he does have a fair amount of talent, though.
