2022 NHL Draft: OHL players to watch

Bryce McConnell-Barker is a speedy, shoot-first center who plays a solid north-south style of game. When he’s at his best, he is lethal off the rush, attacking the defense with speed, forcing them to pivot from backward to forward giving him the advantage. He drives the puck to the center lane with his speed and size and puts himself into position to get off a prime shooting opportunity. He has an NHL-ready shot with great power and accuracy that can beat goalies from anywhere, especially when he’s attacking off the rush. He has the potential to be a productive scorer at both five-on-five and on the power play because he combines his lethal shot with solid off the puck movement that allows him to get open in the offensive zone. He has to develop the rest of his offensive game, though. He’s a capable playmaking threat but at times leaves a lot to be desired. He struggles to make passes under pressure and can be forced into turnovers when he has a defender in his face. For a bigger player, he needs to be better along the boards. He has a tendency to throw the puck away into the middle of the ice when opposing players start to close in on him. The red flags are nothing overly concerning because he’s a young player that will work his way out of these habits as he gains more playing experience. He has the skillset and physical gifts to be a solid contributor at the NHL level. He can develop into a top-six player, but likely caps out as a middle-six forward who can play in multiple situations. Players like McConnell-Barker, who have the speed and can blend in size are always coveted by scouts. The beauty of his game is he has the potential to turn into a quality NHL player for years to come when he puts them together.
