Cal O'Reilly

This kid looks like he's a pretty good scorer, what's the deal with him, why doesn't he get any hype? He's in the top 10 in scoring in the OHL with 84 points.

He's a very similar prospect to Kyle Wellwood. Similar knocks against him such as his skating, willingness to play physical and in his own end.

But he's maybe the best pure playmaker in the OHL, excellent on ice vision. He's also a tremendous stickhandler.

Essentially if Wellwood has been able to break into the NHL this year (and he's looked good doing it), Cal O Reilly definitely has a chance to be a similar player and have a similar impact.

How bad is his skating? Is it about average, or is it below average....as in Allison like skating?

Average. It's not horrendous or anything. But usually when have an undersized forward, if they aren't better then average skaters, you look at that as a potential problem. As such was the knock against Kyle Wellwood.

Was Cal O'Reilly previously drafted into the NHL before Nashville drafted him? Or was there another Cal O'Reilly drafted a couple of years ago?

Anyhoo...
