Other draft profiles:
Name: Adam Mascherin
Position: Center/Left Wing
Born: June 6, 1998
Birthplace: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Weight: 192 lbs
TSN Pick Projection: 57th
Adam Mascherin has played two seasons for the OHL’s Kitchener Rangers. His stats took a huge jump from his first season (12 G 17 A) to his second (35 G 46 A) with only three more games played. Those stats tell a lot of the story - Mascherin can put the puck in the net. He’s also been scouted as having a great shot and work ethic to go along with it.
Mascherin’s most glaring flaw is his size. At 5’9 and 192 pounds, he’ll need to work on his speed to make it in the NHL.
Top six forward (via The Hockey Writers, who also make a Phil Kessel comp. Mark me down as hoping for this guy).
