Hello, anyone know why this haven't been drafted ? He is ruling the OHL right now and the point leader with 15 goals and 26 assits in only 19 games Any weakness on his play? Is he available for this season draft? Thanks.
That's what he's listed at, but I don't think he's actually that tall. In any event, I don't think it's so much size as that he hasn't really put it together until this year (he just matched last season's goal-assist-point output tonight, in only his 20th game). With a few exceptions, most people were thinking he might be the 2nd or 3rd line winger this season. His ability to play the off wing (and/or Hawerchuk's penchant for playing people on the wrong side) has earned him a spot on the top line (the Colts are weak on the right side), and he's found great chemistry with Hall and Behenna.
He's on the NHL Central Scouting preliminary watch list this season at #22 in the OHL. I'm sure he'll get some strong consideration this season in the draft as a second - fourth round pick.
