McLeod with another big night.  He had 3G and 3A in a 10-1 win for Mississauga and while I don't typically put a lot of stock in racking up points in a huge blowout, he did score the first two goals o

Time to get this year's prospect thread going! First, I want to thank everyone for all the kind words they've given me over the past few years of doing this. This is an awesome community and I'm happy

McLeod really turning it on.  2 goals + 1 assist and 1st star again last night  http://ontariohockeyleague.com/video/feb-217-miss-6-nia-4

McLeod leading OHL scoring this late into the playoffs is awesome.  Can anyone calculate his ppg since the WJC?  Gotta be nearly 1.7ppg

Since returning from the WJC (including regular season + playoffs): 40 GP 27-36-63, 1.58 Pts/GP, 2.80 SH/GP, 24.11 SH%

Just for reference, prior to the WJC: 26 GP 6-21-27, 1.04 Pts/GP, 3.62 SH/GP, 6.38 SH%

I had the house to myself yesterday so I was able to buy the Missasauga vs Oshawa game.  The Steelheads closed out the Generals 3-1 (4-1 series) and move on to play Peterborough in the OHL semis.   Bastian had 1 G and 1 A.  Despite not getting on the scoresheet, I thought McLeod was probably the best player on the ice.  His linemates Watson and Ryan McLeod were good as well.  MM could have easily had a few points if not for the Gens backup goalie standing on his head.   If it translates to the NHL, I don't think we've had a guy who could so easily gain the zone on the rush or PP since Gomez 1.0.  

I was one of the people saying we should have taken Logan Brown at the time but McLeod really has me excited by the development he's shown this year.   One year out, it definitely looks like Shero and staff knew what they were doing at the draft.

When is Ryan McLeod's draft year and where does he project to go at this point? Does he play with Mikey? I hear his skating is on par with Mikey's.

I think he's a 2018.   Saturday he was on the top line with Spencer Watson and his brother and he seemed to keep up just fine.  He had a beautiful pass to Watson, where Watson got robbed by the goalie.  I've heard he has a better shot that MM but that's hard to tell when you're just streaming a game on an ipad.  I have no idea where he would be projected to go.

different types of players. honestly - i think mcleod's celing is in-prime gomez.

I do not know how everyone else feels about Gomez, but he was very good while he was in NJ, no complaints about that.

Uhh yeah I would take an in-prime Gomez right about now.

Yeah I don't think anyone here will complain if McLeod's ceiling is prime Gomez. That would be outstanding.

This is the skill set he's displayed this year. And it's absolutely something the Devils could use and good teams possess - a player that can enter the zone consistently and with speed and break a NZ defense.

No question- it's imperative to have that element in today's game. If McLeod can help provide it, he'll be very valuable.

I was bored on the plane today and bought the hockey news 2017 Future Watch issue.  They have Ryan McLeod ranked 10th for 2018

I can't believe the Senators swapped first round picks with us in 2016 and added a 3rd rounder that became Joey Anderson so that they could get Logan Brown. I would be bummed if I were a Sens fan! Great work by Shero/Castron. McLeod looks legit.

Mississauga dropped the first two games of their series with the Erie Otters.   McLeod was held pointless in those games but scored the winning goal last night and was 1st star.  Bastian scored the tieing goal in the third period as the Steelheads won 4-3 to make the series 2-1 Erie.
