Fun fact! Jonathan Drouin who was selected 3rd overall last year had 105 points in 49 games last season. Anthony Mantha has played 49 games so far this season and has how many points??....ding ding ding 105 points! This guy is going to go down as a steal at the 20th overall selection.
Absolutely massive difference between an 18 year old (Drouin last year) and a 19.5 year old (Mantha this year) when it comes to junior. Drouin hasn't really seemed to turn it up much year, but that's normally the exception. If you look at a lot of player's stats, those that play in the 3rd and 4th years in junior really pile up the points. The real stars don't last that long in junior.
I think he'll end up being a decent player in the NHL, but I'm not taking anything he is doing in the Q this year as meaning too much beyond him gaining confidence.
