Tp put it simply, MacDermid isn't even in the same stratosphere as Simmonds in terms of prospect status right now. Then again, nobody thought his brother Lane was going to play in the NHL (let alone the OHL at one point...), so maybe he's on to something.
MacDermid looked more polished than some of the Older guys with AHL experience at the Development camp.
He also has the right attitude, The whole "I haven't earned anything yet", mindset this kid has is in full bore.
The Kings have soft spots for guys with (Work ethic, Size).
