The New Jersey Devils signed their top pick from the 2016 draft, forward Michael McLeod, who was taken with the 12th overall pick. McLeod made an appearance at the Devils' rookie camp and a brief appearance in the main camp, but was sent back to Mississauga of the OHL, where he'll spend the season, working on his game. The 18-year old's contract will slide to next season, where the 3-year entry-level deal will get another chance to start.
The scouting reports suggest that there is a lot to like about this kid, including his size, skating and scoring ability... everything you want in a centre. He could be one to watch in the coming years.
