He is a dynamic skater with excellent hands and vision. He's going to be a top scorer in this year in a few years. Congrats!

enjoy and the best of luck to all those who are eligible for this years draft. Enjoy your moment kids.
Glad to see that he didn't try and short circuit the process and a team like the Sting picked up a real serious talent. So what do you think ktown is Del Zotto a lock for the Gennies ?
Millar from the Sting recently quoted a real interesting stat relating to how you go about building a team in the OHA. FRom the kids drafted from 1999 to 2002- Peterborough got about 3100 games from there picks, London got approx. 2800,and Guelph got approx. 2800. On the other end of the spectrum Mississauga got about 1600,and Sarnia got around 1800. He thinks that 15 to 17 players on the roster should be kids developed thru thesystem . The teams with the itchy trigger fingers didn't fare anywhere near as well.
