Observations:

April 2018 - The Kingston Frontenacs are enjoying a deep OHL run, due partly to the successes of many players, one of which is Cliff Pu. He joined the Frontenacs at the Trade Deadline from the London Knights and finished the season with a total of 84 points split between the two teams in 65 games. He had 29 goals and 55 assists as well as a plus-15. In the playoffs, he has 16 points in 11 games, three of which are goals. The right winger has been progressing well and has shown skating improvements, but he scored at about the same pace last year. Next year, Pu will look to take a step in the right direction towards the pros and elevate his game to the next level. Marcus Griep
 

January 2018 - Pu has been dealt to the Kingston Frontenacs who are loading up for a Memorial Cup run. Pu's numbers are down ever so slightly over last year's but look for that to change with the Fronts lining up with the likes of Jason Robertson and Gabe Vilardi. With the London Knights Pu posted 16 goals and 29 assists in 26 games and in his first two games with Kingston he's scored three times and added one helper. Brad Phillips

 

August 2017 – Cliff Pu is a dominant scorer at the junior level who possesses strong hockey IQ and a tremendous ability to dish the puck to teammates. He has high upside and, under the right guidance, could find himself to be a bottom-six scorer in the NHL one day. Max Marko

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: B

 

Cliff Pu is a goal-scorer with great hands and decent shot. Defensive play and physicality could hinder his shot at a NHL roster spot.
