Brendan comes with tremendous offensive potential. The tall gritty kid started in 11 games for the Majors scoring 2 goals before heading back to play in Tier II. He dedicated his first OHL goal to his mother who he lost to cancer. She had dealt with that for 5 years, and McCann had to grow up very fast. He became quiet and reclusive, which may have played a part in his drop to 115th overall selection.
In Midget last season, he recorded 36 goals and 44 assists. He has a strong mental ability because of what he’s been through and is mature beyond his years. If he can bring that to his game for the Majors next season, added to his hockey ability, he should be a player to keep an eye on.
The fact that Mississauga will be the hosts for the 2011 Memorial Cup, will add exposure for McCann and his teammates
