Fantasy Summary

His best play comes off the puck with his high on-ice awareness and puck retrieval skills. A solid support player that has the potential to be a middle 6 contributor in the right scenario.

June 2022 – The 19-year-old Latimer was traded early this season from Edmonton to Prince Albert in the WHL. Overall he played 62 games and had 18 goals and 22 assists, which is not the production you’d like to see from a player in his D+1 season from a purely statistical standpoint. The 4th round pick from the 2021 draft plays well on the penalty kill and is already defensively responsible, so it is just a matter of improving his skills. Grant Campbell

July 2021- With the 123rd overall selection in the 2021 NHL draft, the Ottawa Senators selected Latimer from the Edmonton Oil Kings. Although most of his best play comes without the puck on his stick, there is no doubt that he brings value to his team with every shift. His consistent forechecking and puck retrieval ability makes him a constant contributor to his team’s success, which makes him a valuable role player for the Oil Kings. Big strides that I am hoping to see him take this upcoming year are with his stickhandling ability and just overall willingness to get involved offensively. Jacob Barker
