Observations

April 2019 – During his first season in the NCAA with Boston College, McBain showed flashes of what made him a potential steal in the draft. At 6’4” and 205lbs, he already has a mature body and is likely to put on more size. McBain struggled with offensive consistency this season while adjusting to playing a higher level of competition. His 13 points in 35 games were a bit underwhelming, although the tools showed well so an improvement in his point total is expected next season. While pure speed isn’t an issue, his acceleration continues to plague him. Once he gets up to top speed, he becomes a freight train on skates as he controls the puck well and powers past opposing players. His offensive instincts are good but he could benefit from working on his first few strides as he has trailed plays at times. The center will return to Boston College next season. His fantasy upside is still quite good assuming he matures his game as he develops in the NCAA. Tony Ferrari 

July 2018 – McBain was considered a potential first-round pick but eventually ended up sliding all the way to the third round where the Wild took him 63rd overall. McBain finished his second season in the OJHL with 21 goals and 58 points in 48 games but obviously the quality of competition is not that high in the OJHL. Next up, he’ll move on to NCAA hockey and play for Boston College for the next few years.  Jokke Nevalainen
