There are some similarities: They have similar OHL offensive numbers (obviously only comparing their first two years). They are both two-way forwards, who play with a bit of an edge. Both went 1st overall in the OHL draft, then didn't get selected in the 1st round of the NHL draft.

I have seen a lot more of Cat than O'Reilly so it is hard for me to make much more of a comparison than that. Funny, I hardly even knew O'Reilly was in the OHL when he was there. Maybe that was because he played with Erie and never scored more than 20 goals.
