Watched Zach Nastasiuk last night. Yet again, he scored a goal in Barrie, he scored two actually. He has four goals in three games in his home town of Barrie this year. He's become quite the Colts killer.
Nastasiuk does a lot well. I'm paying a lot of attention to him, he's worth a mid-second rounder, possibly even could be taken higher. He's a good skater, with goods hands and has a good shot. Nastasiuk is a fantastic physical player, who likes to drive the net, he's a beast in the corners and on the cycle, and is possibly the best shot blocker in the OHL. He's very, very strong on the puck, I can't name more than five OHLers who are stronger on the puck than Nastasiuk. His numbers won't blow anyone away right now, but he impacts the game in so many ways.
With that said, he certainly does not have a whole lot of offensive upside. He's playing on the top line with one of the leagues best in Catenacci. Despite his work ethic and physical gifts, he's a fairly simple offensive player. Now, that's not necessarily bad, but he needs to heavily improve his foot speed and puck skills.
