After returning to Windsor and shattering his previous OHL bests with 38 goals and 85 points in 66 games, Maggio rose to 103 on the list of North American skaters. He was the lone Spitfire to make the list. He did nothing previously to excite scouts, posting just three goals and 11 assists in 45 games as an 18-year-old with the Spitfires in 2019-20. When the 2020-21 OHL schedule was cancelled due to the pandemic, Maggio totaled three scores and eight helpers in 19 outings on loan to SK Lejon of the HockeyEttan, Sweden’s third-tier men’s league. A player of average height and weight, Maggio does not exactly stand out in a crowd, but he works diligently and excels at protecting the puck when it’s on his stick. Mark Allan
