Over the past month or so I have posted several prospect profiles on some of the top draft eligible players currently playing on the Ontario Hockey League. With the draft so close, this will be my last profile I post before the draft. All of my 2012 draft eligible profiles, as well as TheHockeyGuys’ top-60 draft rankings, can be found at the bottom of the article.
Without further ado, here is my prospect profile on 2012 draft eligible defenseman Olli Maatta of the London Knights who was fantastic for the Knights in the second half of the season and throughout the playoffs.
