Good call by Paradise, we'll see how he does in St. John's next year. Some decisions will need to be made there, there's still Cody Sol and maybe Will O'Neill that could be added to the blueline there, and they already have plenty of bodies. Interesting.
Thanks Holden. I know he's a late bloomer, but I really think we found ourselves a quality player. I know there's been some comparisons with Cody Sol (who I also am intrigued by), but Melchiori is such a smooth skater for a player his size. In comparison Sol brings the thump like none of our other prospects, but needs some major work on his skating. Let's hope both excel next year in St.John's. BTW I think the Jets will also sign Sol. I think Will O'Neill has also developed quiet nicely and has a real chance to be signed. If we have too many d-men in St.John's then we either trade 1 or send 1 down to the ECHL, like we did Chiarot.
