Marie with less exposure, and not being played much at the U-18 World Championships with Team Canada dropped his ranking. What people don't know is he lead team Canada in pre-tournament scoring. He also played first line with #1 pick Nugent Hopkins at the U-18s Ivan Hlinka tournament winning the Gold. Buffalo just got a first round pick in this kid. He is the absolute steal of the entire draft and one of my favourite OHL players. He's as a complete player as they come, a leader and assistant captain of the greyhounds at 17. Not to mention he's represented by the best ever Bobby Orr.

Congrats to Buffalo's scouting staff!
Players drafted by Buffalo pretty much never play with the big club the year after they're drafted. Most don't even make the cut 2 years after.
