WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

For a skilled player that does not possess the biggest frame, he is fearless when going into the dirty areas and knows that what you have to do to win. His hockey sense is keen and Ferraro finds the open areas to be effective when his teammates have the puck.

Shane Malloy
He’s a tenacious forward and doesn’t give up on plays. He’s not big but he’s strong and likes to battle for position in front of the net but has a knack for getting open in the slot too.

 


Landon is not much bigger than his father [former NHLer Ray Ferraro], but his size is not viewed as a detriment to his NHL future.  He needs to work on his defensive game, but will look a lot better in that area when his team improves.
