Round 1 - 2nd Overall

2022 OHL Draft RD1 P2 Spence 1

SCOUTING NOTES:

Malcolm Spence is one of the most dangerous players in this age group.  He possesses a great combination of speed, skill, size, and hockey sense.  He is the leading offensive force on a loaded team, standing out as a guy that is almost impossible to contain at this level due to top-end speed with the puck.  He isn’t just one dimensional either as he has great vision and playmaking abilities to go along with his 1-on-1 skills that are hard to compete with. Malcolm’s feet are always moving, he battles and competes hard unlike most skilled players.  He isn’t afraid to drive the net with the puck either and will take contact to make plays in all three zones.  Malcolm is one of the top players in this age group and will be fun to watch moving forward. Welcome to Erie, Malcolm!

2022 OHL Draft RD 2 P41 SAWYER

SCOUTING REPORT:

Logan is a good player for the Vaughan Kings. He played some center and wing at the tournament. Logan in my opinion has very good feet and explosiveness. He garners so much speed coming up the ice. He always attacks the middle of the ice and cuts across defenders faces.
