Observations

April 2020 – Tomasino eclipsed the century mark and finished the season fourth in OHL scoring.  Prior to the abrupt end to the season, Tomasino was a big part of Oshawa locking down a playoff spot.  The speedy and high-intensity centre has taken his game to another level and flourished offensively with increased playing time and opportunity.  While Nashville is locked up at the centre position at the moment, tucking Tomasino away as a development chip will pay huge dividends for the Predators down the road. Nicholas Kawka

January 2020 – After a stellar start to the season and the signing of his ELC with Nashville, Tomasino cooled off his point production.  He was left off Team Canada at the WJC and has bounced back with something to prove. Tomasino is riding a season-high 10-game point streak and has also been traded to Oshawa.  The move should help Tomasino stretch out his season and make another playoff appearance. Tomasino currently sits fourth in OHL scoring and continues to project ahead of his pace last season. He remains one of the top prospects in the Predators pipeline. – Nicholas Kawka

 

November  2019 – After his stellar play to start the year, Tomasino signed his entry-level contract with Nashville.  Watch for Tomasino in early November as he will represent the OHL in the CHL/Russia series.  – Nicholas Kawka

 

October 2019 – After a strong initial training camp with the Predators, Tomasino returned to OHL for the 2019-20 season.  With the departure of a number of veterans from Niagara, Tomasino will be seen as the top Ice Dog and has already begun to carry the load scoring 15 points in 7 games.  Tomasino is one of Nashville’s best prospects and should see playing time in all situations throughout the year to continue to develop. – Nicholas Kawka

 

June 2019 – Tomasino has been drafted 24th overall by the Predators.  Jokke Nevalainen

June 2019 – Tomasino was officially measured at 5-foot-11.75 and 183 pounds at the NHL Draft Combine.  Jokke Nevalainen

February 2019 – Tomasino is a speedy, high-energy player. His engine never quits and he seems to play harder when the opposition has possession. Tomasino is a quick player and keeps his feet moving, even when he has the puck. He can play a physical game, throwing hits to create turnovers or shoulder his way past a defender. His puck possession skills are impressive as the combination of his skills and tenacity lend to solid possession ability. He has a quick release and accurate shot but is equally capable of shooting or creating scoring chances for teammates. Tomasino plays a game that I can see being successful at the NHL level after he has fully developed in time. His ability to force turnovers and steal the puck and ability to produce offence reminds me of Mark Stone.  Peter Harling
