Super-mini, undrafted rookie right wing Zach O’Brien(10) has to be enjoying his first season pro.
After three seasons in the QMJHL with Acadie-Bathurst Titan, where he led the league in goals and points as a rookie then pulled off another goal scoring title the next year with 50 tallies and 101 points. He slumped in his final campaign with only 92.
The possibly overlooked 5’9″ 178 lbs. forward was invited to attend his hometown minor league club, St. John’s IceCaps‘ training camp after playing one game on an ato at the end of the previous season.
He didn’t stick and was reassigned to Ontario Reign to start the season despite being under some kind of vague contract.
He skated in 5 ECHL games scoring a quick pair of goals and assists.
With 6 goals, 8 assists and +6 rating to go along with his tenacious play, it looks like he’s a lock to stick.
