Observations

February 2020 – The Saginaw Spirit forward has flipped the script a bit this season. He led all first-year OHLers in goals and points last season. He followed that up by destroying the Hlinka-Gretzky tournament last summer – scoring a record-tying eight goals. But this year, he’s transitioned away from his shoot-first motto. The 18-year-old trails only Marco Rossi for points and assists in the OHL. He’s become a more well-rounded threat and his draft stock as continued to rise. The explosiveness in his skating continues to elude him, but outside of that, he’s possesses everything you look for in a premier fantasy asset. Cam Robinson 

July 2019 – The fifth-overall selection in the 2018 OHL Priority Selection had a terrific rookie CHL campaign. His 37 goals and 74 points in 63 games led all first-year OHLers. What makes Perfetti so dangerous is his ability to read the play, find the soft areas of the ice, and finish with deadly accuracy. His release is right near the top of the class. The 17-year-old could stand to add more explosiveness to his stride to better increase the likelihood of him becoming an NHL sniper. Cam Robinson
