Players to Watch

Rylee is a highly skilled forward that you notice each time he is on the ice when you watch the Stars play.  His second gear allowing him to drive past unsuspecting defenders is one of the best of this year’s draft class. St. Onge is a player that makes the people on the ice with him better as well as his great vision and ability to not get knocked off pucks opens lanes for his team mates.  Has the ability to put the puck in the net in bunches as he has six two goal games this season.  Rylee is a player scouts come to watch play.

Shackelton is one of the most physical d men in the SCTA and OHL draft this season.  He plays a shutdown role on the back end for this Bulldogs team, making it very hard to play against him if you are the opponent.  His compete level is very high and he brings this each time you see Hamilton play.  Dawson makes players aware when he is on the ice as he is always looking to take the body either on the wall or in open ice.  Shackelton also has the ability to move pucks up to wingers with a good first pass allowing them to spend less time in their end.

Connor is a big strong player that uses his size and strength to his advantage by driving the net and protecting the puck.  His battle and compete level in all three zones of the ice is very high and his hard work is very noticeable to scouts at Gryphons games.  Bunnaman is just under a point a game player this season and is the type of player that every coach wants on his team.
