Bingo! We have a winner!

The Ann Arbor, Mich., native is a fledgling power forward, to coin a phrase from Boston assistant GM Don Sweeney; at 6-foot-3, 185 pounds, he still has a lot of filling out to do. However, hes a fine skater who possesses a lot of natural skill and, after a torrid offensive flourish to close out the year (20 points in 10 games for the Petes after returning from the injury), he could be a steal for the team who snags him if he makes it to the middle of the opening round.

It was a really good feeling, Watson told, when asked about his strong finish to close out the year and play a role in getting his team into the OHL playoffs. I wanted to come back strong and help the team out. We were struggling a bit, so it was real good for me to be able to get in there and get some points, and maybe answer some of the questions about my offensive ability.
