Nick Suzuki could have a big season in store. The Owen Sound Attack forward was a top-five scorer in the OHL last year leading up to the NHL Draft, where he was selected 13th overall by the Vegas Golden Knights.
Ryan Merkley made a seamless transition into the OHL last season. With 55 points (12 goals and 43 assists), he led all OHL rookies in scoring, becoming the first defenceman to do so in nearly 30 years.
If Ryan Suzuki has as good of a junior hockey career as his older brother is currently enjoying, the Barrie Colts will be ecstatic. The Colts selected the younger brother of Owen Sound Attack star Nick Suzuki with the first overall pick in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection Draft on April 8.
