I think to be fair, we'll all have to wait and see. There are enough good things written about him (and he did represent Team Ontario) to think he could be the first piece of the rebuild.

I actually have the Team Ontario vs Quebec championship game recorded - but I never got around to watching it. I will now

Isaac Enright - Pembroke Lumber Kings

Isaac Enright is a defenceman with effortless four-way mobility. He has a long, smooth skating stride that allows him to cover a lot of ground while exerting very little energy. His pivots are incredibly efficient, and he seems to lose no momentum at all when he's required to change directions. Uses his skating to his advantage in both the offensive and defensive facet of the game. He uses his edges to make forecheckers miss when he's in possession, and also has the straight-line speed to join the rush. Defensively, his confidence in his ability to pivot combined with his excellent angling allows him to defend high in the neutral zone and prevent clean zone entries whenever possible. This is an aspect of his game that has shown distinct improvement over the course of the year.

Enright is an excellent problem solver when he has the puck in his own end. He doesn't simply make the most obvious play, but tries to make the one that will most likely lead to a clean zone exit for the Lumber Kings. He is incredibly difficult to forecheck, and shows very little panic when pressured. Often makes slick plays where he chips the puck neatly past the opposing forward, sidesteps the check, and skates back onto the puck. Enright is also a tremendous distributor of the puck. His passes are firm and accurate, and he can make the long stretch pass to send Pembroke in on odd-man rushes. Those same characteristics also help him operate as a power-play quarterback. He isn't much of a shooting threat, but he uses fake shots well to freeze the opposition before sliding passes cross-seam to a more dangerous shooter.

Very active at the offensive blueline, taking a lot of risks to hold the puck in the zone. He regularly pinches deep down the wall to engage wingers in puck-battles. He reads attempted break-outs well, and will try to step into passing lanes to create turnovers. This is obviously a risky strategy, and can sometimes lead to himgetting caught out and the opposition exiting the zone cleanly with numbers.

That same aggression also defines Enright's play in the defensive zone. Once he is engaged with an opposing forward, he tends to follow them around the zone. He thus becomes reliant on teammates to cover the space he has left, which can sometimes lead to confusion and scoring chances against. However, it can also suppress shot attempts against if he is successful in adequately disrupting the forward he's pressuring. In the aggregate, Pembroke benefits more than it is hurt from Enright's aggressive tactics.

Has his limitations offensively, and isn't likely to lead the OHL in scoring amongst D. But more importantly, he has the opportunity to be an elite transitional defender whose team will spend markedly more time in the other team's end than their own while he is on the ice.

Prospect Level: 1

Landon Cato, D, Toronto Nationals

Height: 6'1"
Weight: 205 lbs

Cato possesses size and strength and uses it to assert himself in all zones of the ice. A pest at times, he makes thunderous hits in the corners and along the boards to help his team secure the puck. He is undoubtedly most talented on the breakout where he sees the ice well and makes excellent passes to spring his forwards.

Introducing Landon Cato...

– Landon Cato –
Toronto Nationals (GTHL) | Defence | 2019 OHL Draft Eligible
Toronto, Ontario | 6-foot-2, 180-pounds | March 31st, 2003

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2019/02/...rofile-report/


Future Potential:

Ultimately, Cato has the potential to develop into a sturdy top-four defenceman at the next-level — whether it be in the OHL or NCAA.

Of great size at 6-foot-2 and 180-pounds, Cato will have no trouble adapting to the physical demands of hockey at the next-level while his strong skating and competitiveness should allow him to excel relatively quickly. As a stable minute-muncher with the proven ability to succeed in all situations, Cato will be a highly sought-after player come the 2019 OHL Draft.

Footnote: Landon Cato has an NCAA commitment (UMass-Amherst). Perhaps, he is the reason they traded for that pick in the 3rd. He is a great pick at 46.

So explain to me again why we are taking a chance on a guy who may go to the States? Don't we need bodies to fill our rebuilding line-up? What am I missing?
