Central Scouting: 44th among North American skaters
The Hockey News: Not in top 100

Background: A relatively unheralded recruit, he was one of Brown's offensive leaders as a freshman, finishing second on the team in scoring and earning ECAC co-Rookie of the Year honors. His father, Peter, played eight years for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Scout's Take: “He’s a good player and a good skater, with good hands; really he’s a skill guy. You can see that he knows the game well, and you’d expect that because of who his father is.

“He’s got no hardness to his game at all, and he’s slightly built, but he’s very talented. He’s still young and has time to develop. You know that the skills are going to be there.

“The knock on kids in the ECAC is always that it’s a weaker league, but you look in the NHL and it’s amazing how many ECAC players are really good players in the league."

INCH Projection: With the success of Martin St. Louis skill is being valued more than size, but only to a degree. Size will still hold Ihnacak down, probably to the third or fourth round.

"Scout's Take" is Inside College Hockey's exclusive evaluation of the player from one or more NHL scouts. Scouts were granted anonymity in exchange for their candor.
