Scouting Report

This power forward’s overall numbers are impressive — only Matt Tkachuk (107) and Alex DeBrincat (101) had more points than Mascherin (81) among OHL first-year eligibles. Short but solid, he’s an excellent playmaker and elite stickhandler who makes up for a lack of overall foot speed with patience and grown-man strength. The poor kid has issues accelerating, but again, his lethal shot (and it is lethal) and vision make him too good a prospect to pass on. Mascherin is the hockey equivalent of an elite quarterback who can carve up a zone or man-to-man defense without impunity, and he uses a long stick and quick thinking to steal passes and exploit a numerical advantage or create one himself. Mascherin, a former top pick in the OHL Priority Selection, plays a clean, disciplined game and has legitimate top-line potential.
