Observations

August 2019 – Last season, Rossi played in his first full season in North America for the OHL’s Ottawa 67’s. In 53 games played, the Austrian center posted 29 goals and 36 assists. In addition to this point totals during the regular season, he managed to muster up 22 points during the OHL playoffs. The 17-year-old had a great first season and if he can outproduce his totals from last season then he could wind up being drafted in the top 10. At the moment, quite a few analysts project Rossi to go in the top 15. When you watch Rossi play, you will see how well positioned Rossi is. He always seems to be in the right spot and is ready to do damage. Rossi plays along the boards and is always working to secure the puck. He has great hands and can be a pretty crafty stick-handler. With Rossi’s skill-set and his offensive production in his first season in the OHL, he will be highly coveted at the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. Rossi projects to be a top-six center and has the potential to be a first line center. Josh Tessler
