Observations

June 2018 – The Florida Panthers have failed to get Mascherin signed before the June first deadline which means the 38th overall selection from the 2016 NHL Entry Draft will re-enter the draft and will be available in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. The Panthers were apparently shopping Mascherin’s rights for a third round draft pick but couldn’t find a trade partner which means they ended up losing his rights for nothing.  Jokke Nevalainen

March 2018 – Adam Mascherin has informed the Panthers that he won’t sign with them. The Panthers are likely going to trade his rights now so that they don’t lose him for nothing but they’re unlikely to receive a great return. Jokke Nevalainen

March 2018 – In the Western Conference side of annual OHL Coaches Poll, Mascherin won the Best Shot vote, and he also finished second in the Hardest Shot and Most Dangerous in the Goal Area categories. Jokke Nevalainen

January 2018 – Mascherin started the season scoring 15 points in 18 games which was a slow start by his standards but since then he has scored 44 points in his last 27 games. Mascherin’s 30 goals is third best in the league while his 59 points has him fifth in the league. Mascherin has also fired 187 shots on goal which is fourth best in the league and equals to 4.2 shots per game. Mascherin has a 14 point lead over the second best player on his team, so he’s not getting much help from them either. Jokke Nevalainen

May 2017 – Mascherin proved to be the offensive catalyst in Kitchener this season as he posted 35 goals and 100 points in 65 games, good for third in OHL scoring. Mascherin was an offensive force every time he was on the ice while showcasing his outstanding shot and speed. Although not the tallest player on the ice, Mascherin has the strength and work ethic to win battles against any opponent. Despite his goal production remaining stagnant over the past two years, Mascherin demonstrated his ability to become a better-rounded offensive player this year. He sees the ice very well, while also taking every opportunity he can to shoot the puck. With undersized players seeing more and more success in today’s NHL, look for Mascherin to play a key part in Florida’s offence looking forward. Joel Gluss

December 2016- Mascherin is having an excellent first half of the OHL season with the Kitchener Rangers. Currently at just under a two-points-per-game pace with 49 points in 29 games played, he is top four in OHL scoring. Noticeable parts of the game include ability to generate speed off the rush, takeaways in the defensive zone, accurate shot and excellent puck handling ability to get by defenders. Mascherin sees first unit powerplay time with the Rangers. Chris Crawford

July 2016 – Mascherin was drafted slightly, to quite higher than a lot of the independant scouting agencies projected. The Florida Panthers see a sniper who can produce goals at the NHL level in the near future. His weight was a concern but his performance at the scouting combine eased some of those concerns as he came in a few pounds lighter. In a fantasy draft, I would consider ranking Mascherin even higher as a later first round option. Peter Harling

March 2016 – At 5’10” it is easy to dismiss Mascherin as a “small player” and that is not entirely accurate. Yes he is short by pro hockey standards, but he is not small. He is 205 pounds and strong as an ox. He is built like a fire hydrant and has excellent skating ability. He has explosive acceleration and a high end top gear. Mascherin has a deadly shot, hard, quick and accurate and controls the puck well at top speed. His game is reminiscent of Phil Kessel, but stronger and not yet quite as gifted offensively. Peter Harling
