Mississauga Ice Dog Stuart Percy (#5) is the 53rd ranked North American skater for the upcoming draft. The 6'1", 195 lbs defenseman has turned heads recently (including my own). He has an excellent stick, strong positioning, and makes an incredibly consistent first-pass. He makes things look easy, and finished with the best one-game grade (85) among his draft-eligible teammates. His grade this game equalled his grade from an earlier game I scouted; two grades of 85 in successive games is beyond impressive. And finally, Percy's grade in this game was better than highly-ranked prospects Nathan Beaulieu (72), Jonathan Huberdeau (68) and Zack Phillips (65).
Mississauga's Dylan Demelo (#2) is the CSB's 121st ranked skater in North America. The 6'0", 196 lbs defenseman has good mobility and excelled when engaging in defensive-zone puck battles. He improved his puck-battle numbers significantly compared to a previous game I scouted, while continuing to make a solid first pass. He ended the game with the second-best grade (83) among draft-eligible players in the game. fifteen percentage-points better than a previous game I scouted.
Mississauga's Joseph Cramarossa (#16) is the CSB's 63rd ranked skater for the upcoming draft. His best asset is his speed. The 6'0", 188 lbs centreman has decent defensive-instincts, but needs to improve his 1on1 puck-battle skills. He had the lowest grade (53) among his draft-eligible teammates; Twenty-two percentage-points lower than a previous game I scouted. His grade was hurt by 3 neutral-zone puck-battles he lost, as well as 3 separate occasions where he was unable to beat opposing players 1on1.
