Not many posts in yet but what do other people think on Ekblad making the team? I campaigned pretty hard during this years WJC to not have MacKinnon even in camp but Ekblad is different. Huge, very strong defensively, and will be up there with Murphy and Ceci as the best defensemen in the OHL next season. Has there ever been a 16 year old defensemen make the team?
I haven't seen Ekblad play this year so I can't make say he won't make the team let alone say he shouldn't even be invited.

IMO if he makes the under-18 team this summer and dominates then he should be considered for the invite and then go from there.

I see that you are assuming that Ryan Murray makes the jump to the pros this fall otherwise he will be definitely be on our team this Xmas.

Who would you compare Ekblad to as far as style of play?
