Some lessor knowns to watch Part III

Ryan Strome - Niagara Ice Dogs
5'11" 160 lbs

Strome split time between the Barrie Colts and the Ice Dogs collecting a total of 8 goals and 19 assists in 61 games with 61 PIM.

Strome is a good skater with good speed. He controls the puck and the play very well and has poise in tight areas. He has high offensive potential while playing a very good 3 zone game.

He will really need to add some size to continue to the next level

Andrew Fritsch - Niagara Ice Dogs
6' 180 lbs

The big strong forward has the ability to be a productive power forward. Has goal scoring ability and is known more for that than his playmaking. In 62 games for the Ice Dogs he scored 11 goals and added 7 assists. His 13 PIM is an indication that he needs to use his body more.

The 3rd round pick of the Ice Dogs recorded 71 points in 59 games last season for the Brantford 99ers.

Jimmy McDowell - Oshawa Generals
6' 175 lbs

McDowell is the second of the 3 Generals d-men to keep an eye on. He brings the exact same thing to the game as Hope does with more offensive potential.

McDowell passed on a scholarship to Michigan State to go the OHL route. In 50 games in his rookie season, he scored 3 goals and added 6 assists.


Colin Suellentrop - Oshawa Generals
6'1" 193 lbs
Colin is the third of the “Big Three” on the Oshawa blue line. In 54 games, he scored one goal and added 5 assists to go along with 74 penalty minutes. Of the three he is the most physical and the better skater.

His reach and his skating give him the edge on the defensive part of the game.

Kyle Hope - Oshawa Generals
6'2" 177 lbs

The 3rd round pick will be one of three young defensemen to watch in 2010-11. He is a smooth skating PMD with offensive upside. He is a big kid who will have to add some mass to his frame.

Despite his 165 LBS, he has been a physical presence on the blue line. As he grows into his 6’2” frame, it will only get better.
