Las Vegas uses lucky #13 to pick up Suzuki, a big time sniper and 200-foot player who is effective in all areas of the ice and scores the big goal when his team needs it.
Nick Suzuki - Owen Sound Attack (OHL)
Born: August 10, 1999 – London, Ontario, Canada
Weight: 187 lbs.
Drafted: 2015 OHL Draft - Round #1 (14th Overall) by Owen Sound Attack
Nick Suzuki is a legitimate scoring threat every time he sets foot on the ice. Tremendous puck handler who does a great job of keeping control of the puck while flying at top speed. Has a knack for going to the scoring areas and making himself open for a pass or to pounce on any loose pucks in the crease. Tremendous vision. Can deliver a tape-to-tape pass from across the ice and follows his pass up the ice. His defensive game could use some work. Needs to engage more. Very disciplined and stays out of the penalty box. Has a ton of offensive upside. One of the youngest draft eligible players in the draft, Suzuki won’t turn 18 until two months after the draft.
DID YOU KNOW? Suzuki scored his first OHL goal in his very first OHL game in September 2015 in Kitchener. He had his first two-goal game against Guelph in late October 2015 against former London Jr. Knights midget teammate Isaac Ratcliffe, who is also eligible for the 2017 NHL Draft.Back to Top
