I remember reading somewhere Ryan MacInnis was touted to be a top 5 pick in the OHL draft before he made USNDT committment. We were able to get him with a 3rd round pick in 2012 in hopes in a year or two he would report to Kitchener (eventually). A year has past and now rumors (legitimate sources - LR on another forum). His is a 6'3" 170lbs Centre. And here is a little blurb about him from another poster (AmericanDream) in the prospects forum from his top 25 Americans in the 2014 NHL draft.

11. Ryan Macinnis - F - His bloddlines make him a name that people follow. His size makes people really think he could be special. But there has always been something missing or lacking from his game for me. He should do fine in the OHL this year and hopefully be a top player to get picked in the draft. I think he could be on par to players like Max Domi and Kerby Rychel (both first rounders) but he has some issues to work on and realize that you cant just go by your name to make it.

So he has issues but with that size and the previous stats below, he could fit in nicely.
