Observations

January 2020 – Aidan McDonough has transitioned quite smoothly to the NCAA. The 20-year-old freshman has found a home on Northeastern’s top line and top power-play unit. His effectiveness on the man-advantage has been massive as he currently co-leads the nation with eight PPGs. The 6’3 winger is third in the nation for first-year players with 18 points in 17 games. This is shaping up to be a tremendous seventh-round selection by the Canucks. Cam Robinson

June 2019 – The Vancouver Canucks selected the 19-year-old after a strong USHL campaign. The American winger is your typical late bloomer. He spent his draft-eligible campaign dominating the Massessechusettes prep circuit while finding coordination and comfort in his 6-3 frame. McDonough is a terrific finisher – capable of converting from all over the offensive end. He plays a heavy, power forward game that has become more impressive as the year went on. McDonough is travelling a well-worn path by Canucks prospects by going Prep School to the USHL and finally to Northeastern University. Next fall, McDonough will join fellow Canuck, Tyler Madden with the Huskies and look to keep the development arc trending upwards. Cam Robinson
