Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Has a lot of power in his shot.  ... Scored eight goals in his first OHL season using his powerful shot. He seemed to miss the net quite a bit when shooting which he will need to reel in, in order to use that shot to produce at the level he's capable of. He showed good passing ability and feeds his linemates on the rush effectively. He provided some good two-way play and was even willing to get in front of some shots. Connor would benefit from playing a more physical style of game. There were too many moments where he had the ability to finish his checks and he pulled up. Connor has good upside at the NHL level dating back to his minor midget days, but will need to show this productivity at the OHL level." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
