Observations:

 

March 2015 - While there may not be a better, and deeper roster in all of the CHL, Jared McCann has had no problem making a name for himself this season. After scoring nine points in his first six games, McCann has been on a tear becoming one of Canada's hottest prospects, ripping up the OHL with 64 points in his last 46 games. An incredible pace for the 18-year-old center who also exhibits responsible two-way play with a plus-24 rating. His 32 goals and 43 assists are both good for second on the team. The playoffs will say a lot about McCann's NHL scoring potential as pressure situations always give us a better idea of what a player is really capable of.  - Mike Barrett

 

October 2014- After finishing last season at an almost point-per-game pace (64-27-35-62), McCann returns to a very strong Greyhounds (8-2) team looking to improve on that mark. McCann has started well on that path, contributing four goals and five assists in just six games already. It should be mentioned that he is also already fifth in team scoring. Mike Barrett

 

October 2014 – Greyhounds forward Jared McCann has been named to the OHL’s roster for the upcoming Subway® Super Series and will compete in the November 17th game in Kingston. Brendan Ross

 

September 2014 - Jared McCann was diagnosed with Mono just prior to the Young Stars Classic and therefore was unable to participate. He has since been sent home to rest and will rejoin his teammates in Sault Ste. Marie when he is back to full strength. Mike Barrett

 

June 2014 – The Vancouver Canucks selected Jared McCann 24th overall in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross

 

August 2013 – After posting 61 goals and 131 points in 67 games for the London Jr. Knights Gold minor midget squad, the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds selected Jared McCann 4th overall at the 2012 OHL Priority Selection Draft. McCann enters his 2014 draft year as one of the more intelligent players as he is constantly showcasing his elite hockey sense. His understanding of the game is evident in all areas of the game and mistakes in his decision making are very rare. McCann makes the players around him much better by his ability to read the play and react before it unfolds. McCann is a complete hockey player and his shot is already well above average. With a 2011 Alliance Bantam Championship, 2012 AMMPHL Championship and 2013 Ivan Hlinka Gold Medal already in his trophy case, McCann has shown that he is a proven winner.  Brendan Ross

 

 

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: B +

McCann projects as a responsible two-way centerman with scoring upside at the NHL level and will compete for a top 10 selection at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
