Setoguchi, the 10th ranked skater in North America according to CSS, is a rugged 5-foot-11, 186 pounds. He has a tremendous shot and won the hardest-shot competition at the 2005 CHL Top Prospects Game. He was the fifth overall selection in the 2002 WHL Entry Draft and finished 14th in rookie scoring two years ago. He had 33 goals and 31 assists in 69 games. That includes a 15-game drought in which he had only one goal and two points.

Setoguchi was Team Canada's leading scorer at the 2005 World Under-18 Tournament, where he had four goals and two assists in six games. He was a member of Team Pacific at the 2004 Under-17 World Hockey Challenge and a member of Team Canada at the 2004 World Under-18 Tournament.
Setoguchi is a strong skater with a quick stride. He's solid on his skates and has tremendous balance and mobility. Setoguchi displays exceptional lateral movement with skating with the puck and is outstanding in one-on-one situations. He controls the puck well with his head up in full stride and in tight situations. Setoguchi has great awareness of where his teammates are and distributes the puck well using flat or saucer passes. He can in many different ways, either with his hard, quick, accurate shot or deking defenders and goaltenders.

He goes hard to the net and has good hand-eye coordination for one-timers. He has excellent scoring instincts. He usually starts a game with hard hits and finishes checks with authority. He's a very competitive player as illustrated by the fact that most of his goals come on the road rather than at home. He's a feisty player who is always in the face of the opponent. He plays with an edge that keeps the opposition honest. He uses his body well to protect the puck and knows his responsibilities away from the puck. He's also a threat to score on both the power play and penalty killing. The only knock is he could be more consistent from game to game.
