Submitted By Website Admin 2016-17 on Thursday, April 6, 2017
A number of our QRD Minor Midgets were profiled recently on the OMHA website. Here is a summary...

 

Micheal Andrews - Forward

Andrews is a five-tool player - he possess an abundance of skill, smarts, compete level, physicality, and consistency. He finished second in OMHA scoring, averaging close to two points per game, and all the while racking up one-PIM per game with his tenacious style.

His consistency peaks the interest level of OHL teams. With elite athletes at this age, it is sometimes easy to lose focus on the fact they are still teenagers. Young men trying to find their middle-point all the while leaving scouts wondering what is the true player they are watching. Andrews was a huge contributor at every checkpoint for his team including the bronze medal clinching goal at the OMHA Championships. 

 
Daniel Panetta - Forward

Panetta is a good example of where the game is going. Not overly big, he's an excellent skater, competes hard and is vastly skilled.

Panetta elevated his game in the second half of the season and was one of the main reasons his team flourished during the playoffs and medaled at the OMHA Minor Midget AAA Championship where he finished tied for third in scoring.

 
Emmett Pierce - Forward

The big man was an offensive leader on an excellent Quinte team, finishing fourth in OMHA scoring. Arguably the most intriguing prospect in the ETA this season, Pierce is a rare combination of size, skill and smarts. His vision of the ice and hands are unparalleled.

It is important to remember, big players at this age take longer to develop and reach their peak. As they get older and stronger, their motor-skills catch up to their big bodies. Due to the attributes Pierce possesses and with this in mind there is no doubt he will be a sought after commodity for OHL teams.


Cameron Supryka - Defense

Supryka is a wonderful skater, his edge work is a thing of beauty and he makes it look effortless. In addition to his skating ability, his cupboard is filled with a number of other important attributes – vastly skilled, understands the game well, and plays a tight d-game. Opponents had a tough time with his transition game and tight-gap all-year-long. Supryka was the catalyst on the backend of an excellent Quinte Red Devils team.
