Ryan O'Connor, D, Barrie Colts, OHL
 
Size I guess was what held him back from being drafted in 2010. Just wondering, if you think he may have a future in the NHL. I went back to Brock's blog and he seemed to like him a lot back in 2010. Good PP guy, looks like a good character kid being captain or assistant a few times already.

I do agree. I can't believe he got 10 games for that. I knew he'd get some when it was announced Watson would miss some time. But 10 games? Utterly ridiculous (and I'm not a Branch basher).

To answer Mathletic's original question, I'm actually still a big fan (since he referred back to my 2010 draft list). The kid wears his heart on his sleeve. He's on the smaller side, but he's skilled, tough, has a great shot and instincts to run the powerplay. I think he can learn to be a very effective positional defender at the next level. I think he deserves an NHL contract, but I'd be surprised if he got one. That said, I'd be very surprised if he wasn't playing in the AHL next year on a minor league deal. I think he's one of those guys who eventually reaches the show after hard work and dedication at the minor league level.

:help:

what did he do wrong exactly? Does the OHL have some rule prohibiting hits to defenseless players?

Thanks Brock!
