Bob McKenzie: The Team USA Under-18 defenceman was suspended for eight games by USA Hockey for off-ice disciplinary reasons related to misbehaving in the school/social setting and many NHL scouts say Jonathan Merrill’s interviews at the NHL Central Scouting Combine were poor to say the least, but this is a talented offensive defenceman with terrific pro potential who, by all accounts, is focused on being a hockey player. If a team thinks the kid is simply immature as opposed to flawed, the sky’s the limit. If he slides, though, it suggests teams have concerns. He’s off to the University of Michigan next.
