Yeah it could work out like Kolomatis where the guy develops into a top flight OHL defender in a few seasons, certainly possible given that next season some major spots open up on Owen Sound's blue line. But I'm just kind of shocked that LA is spending one of their fifty contracts on a guy with 9 OHL games under his belt and unless other teams had him on their radar he'd definitely still be available in a few years.
Hoping this means a breakout year for him because that'd be a stellar development for an already stacked blue line. I'm just surprised it's a guy like MacDermid considering guys like Keevin Cutting (now an OA) had shown way more at the same age and is miles better than MacDermid yet has been undrafted twice.
