Observations

June 2019 – Maccelli has been drafted 98th overall by the Coyotes.  Jokke Nevalainen

June 2019 – Maccelli moved to USHL in the middle of last season and looked pretty promising. This year, Maccelli’s production exploded as he recorded 72 points in 62 regular season games, third-most points in the entire USHL. Maccelli has a late birthdate, so he wasn’t eligible to play in the U18 Worlds this year.

Maccelli is a skilled offensive winger. He has good hands, vision and wrist shot. Maccelli thrives on the power play where he can utilize his playmaking and shooting abilities. He is relatively small at 5-foot-11 and just a decent skater. Maccelli’s lack of pace in his play is a bigger concern, and his effort level is not always the best. He will play for Liiga club Ilves next season, and it will be interesting to see how his game translates to the pro level.  Lassi Alanen
