I actually caught Sudbury a lot in the second half of the season. Cummins didn't play a ton in those games, but I thought he showed potential as a stay at home defenseman. I did notice the skating issues though. But I wouldn't write him off yet. It's pretty rare for 16 year old defenseman to stand out in the league (in a good way). Would I have taken Cummins in that spot? No. But I think he can still become a very serviceable and longtime OHL player.
