    Maroon was recently named to the OHL all star team and had a hatrick last night. He's now got 29g-38a-67pts in 43 games, good for 8th in the OHL as a rook. The #2 rookie ranks 38th (although Maroon is an over ager).
    Maroon wouldn't be an over-ager until next year (he's the same age as Giroux).

    • SM-League scouting report of Joonas Lehtivuori (Finnish only)

      The report is made by group of people that includes a couple of scouts and also Jukka Jalonen, assistant coach of Finnish National Team and in my opinion one of Finland's best hockey minds.

      Since it's only in Finnish I'll try to translate it here.

      Pros:
      Has good self-confidence, calm and brave with the puck. Good techincal puck-handling skills. Safe passer. Makes intellegent decissions with the puck. Supports offense well when without the puck. Modern PP-defenseman: good movement at the blue line, playmaker and ability to get the puck to the net with a quick and surprising wristshot.

      Cons:
      Problems in his own zone and especially in front of the net. Lacks strenght and technical skills when in grinding situation. Always has to defense zone, leaving a lot of room to the opponent to make his decissions. Physical skills overall require development.

      Comment:
      "Good natured guy who has everything needed to develope into a star defenseman. Mostly lacking in physical development. Still he has certain special skills, such as powerplay-game, that are enough for him to succeed on SM-League's level even now. Lack of physical play can be seen especially when playing in the boards and in front of the net in one on one situations. Needs to developme the power and sharpness of his shot but this will propably get better with time. Calm with the puck for such a young player. Is not afraid to control the puck under pressure in his own zone and calmly looks for a decissions. Even though mistakes happens it still is a good sign that he is not afraid to play to his strenghts and look for his limits."
      - Jukka Jalonen, Finnish National Team coach

            he's back up into the top OHL scorers. 72 points he's got now. Good for 6th in the league.

                    • Has anyone caught any of vanRiemsdyk's games lately? In a few box scores, the faceoff totals suggest he's been playing center.
