With the 19th overall pick in the 2024 NHL Draft, the Golden Knights have selected Trevor Connelly from the Tri-City Storm of the USHL. Connelly is committed to play hockey this fall at Providence College.

Here are what scouts have written about the 2024 #19 overall pick. Connelly is a burner. Give him the puck in space, and he makes things happen. Some of that is skill, a lot that effectiveness rests in the details – it all depends on what’s in front of him. When confronted by a defender playing a tight gap, Connelly dictates their momentum, changing lanes and cutting across his opponents as they react; if the defence sags, he cuts inside

The Hockey Writers: The 18 year old is seen as a sure top-six talent according to league scouts.

Dobber Hockey: Dynamic, skillful winger with great playmaking and puck-carrying abilities. Plays a very unrefined game, but has sky-high upside.

Daily Faceoff: From an on-ice perspective, Connelly has so much going for him. He’s been lighting up the USHL all season long … Off the ice, though, is what teams are concerned about. It just depends on which teams you talk to.

The Hockey News: About two years ago, Connelly posted an image on the social media platform Snapchat, in which the photo depicted a friend posing in front of building blocks that was formed in the shape of a swastika. Connelly was also accused of making a racial slur in a game in 2021, but after an investigation was unable to verify the incident, it resulted in the initial suspension for the violation to be lifted.
