Fantasy Summary

Observations

February 2017 – While Amadio started his first pro season slowly, he has really picked up the pace lately, scoring eleven points in eleven games in February. His 30 points in 50 games place him third in scoring on the Reign, behind veteran T.J. Hensick and scoring winger Jonny Brodzinski. When drafted, Amadio was viewed as a defensive specialist, but much has changed as his game has matured. Still, this season is a learning season for Amadio, and he will need to continue to work to take his game to the next level. Next season, Ontario will likely lean more on Amadio to be one of their top players. Philip Kamhi

 

September 2016 – Amadio had 50 goals and a 98-point season for the North Bay Battalion and was the ninth-highest scorer in the OHL. He was originally drafted for his strong two-way play, yet he had the highest NHL translation of any of the Kings’ prospects with 38 NHLe. Following OHL dominance, he smoothly transitioned to the AHL in playoffs, and exceeded expectations. In 11 AHL playoff games he managed five points (0.45 points per game). He might be the top offensive player in the Kings’ farm system, but a lot will be determined by how he performs in his first full season in the AHL. Philip Kamhi

 

December 2015 – Following last year’s dominant season for the North Bay Battalion, Amadio was named team captain and has picked up right where he left off. His team-leading 38 points (16 goals and 22 assists in 27 games) is a full 18 points ahead of the closest scorer on his team, and positions him only one point outside of the top ten scorers in the OHL. Amadio is currently producing 1.4 points per game, a decent improvement over last season’s 1.04 points per game. Philip Kamhi

 

March 2015 – Better known for his defensive acumen, Amadio broke out on the scoresheet this season, notching a team-leading 71 points (after just 38 in 2013-14 and 19 in 2012-13). The North Bay Battalion’s top pivot will almost certainly return to juniors in 2015-16. Can he improve on career-high numbers? He needs to quicken his skating burst to become a more intriguing fantasy prospect. Sheng Peng
