March 2021 – Angle is coming off a strong campaign with the Windsor Spitfires, registering 67 points in 62 games. He has finally earned a chance to play with Columbus’ AHL affiliate the Cleveland Monsters. While he has only had the chance to lace up for two games, he has scored two goals and produced an assist. A strong debut to his first season of professional hockey, there is reason to be optimistic that this seventh rounder can beat the odds and eventually make the show. Sam McGilligan

 

May 2020 – Angle wrapped up his 2019-20 season tied for the team lead in points with 67 (29 goals and 38 assists). Playing in his fourth season with the Spitfires, the 20-year-old shattered nearly every one of his previous statistical numbers. After taking some major strides in his development this year, CBJ management should be contemplating a potential ELC this summer. Should he ink a deal, look for him to challenge for a spot in the AHL next season. Dave Hall

 

December 2019 – The Ontario native continues his strong season in his fourth year with the Windsor Spitfire (OHL). The silky center has contributed a team-leading 14 goals combined with 16 assists through 25 games and shows no sign of slowing down. Although he is considered somewhat smaller in stature, Angle uses his smooth skating and pro-release to rack up points on a consistent night-to-night basis. The 19-year-old also provides a heavy presence on the league’s top power-play unit, creating plays from the half-boards like the best of them. Despite being taken late in the draft, the 2019 draftee has quickly become a very intriguing prospect. However, with no entry-level deal signed yet, his potential remains low. Dave Hall

 

October 2019 – Columbus did not have to wait long to get a good sample of their 2019 seventh-round pick. In 11 games played, the fourth-year veteran has contributed 14 points (9G + 5A) while firing an impressive 41 shots on goal.  The Ontario native is currently on pace to shatter his career highs that were set last season (20g + 24A) and is doing so playing on the team’s top line. Angle also provides a heavy presence on the top powerplay unit where he has four goals, which ties him for fourth in the league. It may be early, but the organization should be pleased with what they have seen so far from their late-round pick. Dave Hall

 

June 2019 – Angle is a smaller-sized forward who can score and make plays. His skill level is not elite, but he was worth a gamble in the seventh round of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. In 58 OHL games last season, the Windsor Spitfire center scored 20 goals and 24 assists. He will need to work on his defensive game, bulk up his frame and maintain his work ethic in order to be effective at the next level. There is no fantasy value to be had with Angle for a very long time. Frank Pellegrini
