March 2013 - In 67 regular season games for the Owen Sound Attack this season, Daniel Catenacci posted 38 goals, 41 assists, 79 points and 115 peanalty minutes setting career highs in goals and points. Catenacci was also named the third hardest working player in the OHL Western Conference Coaches poll. Brendan Ross


February 2013- Catenacci had his way with the Saginaw Spirit pouring in 3 goals and 2 assists to help lead Owen Sound to the 6-2 victory. Also winning Thursday in OT 3-2 at Barrie, Catenacci helped clinch a playoff spot for the Attack. Look for Catenacci to set a new career high for points in a season when play resumes this thursday in Barrie. Travis Watson


December 2012 - Catenacci was one of 12 defenseme21 forwards invited to take part in Canada's National Junior Selection camp for the 2013 World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia.  The small hard-working forward has already potted 17 goals and 44 points (30 games) for his Owen Sound Attack in the OHL currently leading the team in scoring and will challenge for a bottom-six role on Team Canada.  Brendan Ross


March, 2012 – Daniel Catenacci entered the 2011 entry draft as a bit of a wild card.  He is a player that packs a lot of punch for a undersized centerman but possesses a lot of intangibles including leadership and a strong work ethic.  Catenacci is an exceptional skater with a quick first step and good lateral agility.  The former first overall selection in the 2009 OHL Priority Selection draft, Catenacci has progressed nicely improving his goal and point totals each season while adding a ton of penalty minutes.   As a third round selection of the Buffalo Sabres, Catenacci is a good value pick and his 5-10 frame fits perfectly into an organization willing to give smaller forwards a chance.


Fantasy Outlook:   B-

Catenacci provides good offensive statistics and will have increased value that rewards penalty minutes.  As a good penalty killer with great instincts, Catenacci’s likelihood of becoming an NHL player is good if he continues to progress as he can fit anywhere within a top 9 role.
