David Meckler

Was wondering if anyone has seen him play this season? He has put up some impressive numbers and I'm curious if he has been the benefactor of great linemates or is he this good?

He's good.

Everyone will benefit from good linemates. Meckler knows where to be at the right time and he has a lethal combo of size and speed.

Agreed, also he's 19 so he has a bit more experience, size, strength than your average OHL rookie. Not to mention Ivy League smarts...

Hey Fat Elvis he has been pretty much what we expected in Camp I have seen him about 11 times already including pre season.

Honestly we thought early on he would lead the Knights in scoring but it starting to look he may be a level below Gagner and Kane who are just lethal. Last season Meckler would of been 3rd in team scoring here with Bolland and Schremp and it doesn't look much different this year.

Meck looks like he is really enjoying himself here and scoring at a very good pace.

Ahead of Hunter? I don't agree, but close yes.

Thanks, I won't get the cahnce to see him play so it's good to hear positive things about his play. Any updates along the way would be great. Thanks again.

I read he has a lethal combo of size and speed but he's listed 6'0'' ??

Anyway, I've never seen him play but it looks like he's a real sniper. He never finished (both regular season and playoffs) a season with more assists than goals.

Drafted #134 overall by the Kings and he leads the OHL in goals, nice.

Hmmm

Tough crowd here.

10 goals in 9 games

4 two goal games in a row

Forechecks great.

Good skater

The guy is a good player in his own right who would have fit in regardless. So why bother trying to figure out how he would have fit into last years team. Kinda pointless exercise

I am glad he is here, end of story

He's a tap in specialist, the heavy work on most his goals is done by his linemates. He should have a lot more goals, but he certainly does know how to position himself, he gets a ton of great chances.

Nonetheless, that Knights powerplay as usual is just plain scary good. Great puck movement. They practise it at least for about a half hour a few times a week in case anyone was wondering why it is so dawgone good.
Meckler is a huge part of the PP success.

LOL Tap in specialist? Can't say I agree with that at all.

For those that have seen them play who is the better prospect, Meckler or Trevor Lewis? They are both with LA and people over on the Kings board are starting to notice Meckler.

Too early to tell with Meckler and Lewis since The Attacks top line has struggled a little so hard to read. They go head to head again tomorrow night in London.

Check back here Saturday but definaltly Meckler is hard not to notice.

Will be good power forward in a few years.

What kind of potential does Mackler have? What kind of game does he play? Does he shy away from contact or does he play a physical game? How is his shot wrist/slap? Will he make it to the NHL?

Thanks in advance for the feedback.

Meckler plays a pretty good checking game. He is not afraid to play the body or aggressively forecheck. Good speed on the skates.Good wrist shot. He has a good balanced skill set

He looks like the kind of player who could make it in the NHL after a couple of years in the AHL. I can see him playing on a checking line to start with. I think he could play at the next level after maturing.

I'm thinking a Drew Larman - type w/ better offensive potential.

Almost like Mario Lemieux.

Meckler scored 4 goals last night.

Even Strength goal
PP goal
SH goal
Penalty Shot goal

Too bad London had a 5-2 lead, so he couldn't score an empty netter !
