I had him ranked 33rd among OHL players for the draft.

Just to add to that a bit...

The Knights generally ask their 3rd/4th liners to play a specific style that can stagnate offensive creativity. They are asked to dump and chase and to work the walls, in order to tire out opposing defenses so that their 1st and 2nd lines can have greater success. And Platzer did just that this year. So I think it sort of remains to be seen how much "pure" offensive ability he has. We'll likely see that next year when he's given the opportunity to replace Seth Griffith, likely Alex Broadhurst, and maybe even possibly Bo Horvat.
