Scouting report

In the eyes of many, Werenski was not all that far off from Connor McDavid last year in Minor Midget circles. Playing up with the Belle Tire 96′s, Werenski was often the star of the show much like Day is now. This year Werenski is playing in the U18 circuit with his older brother where he has once again had an impressive season. The big defenseman has good feet and a strong compete level. His offensive tools are above average and his presence in all 3-zones makes him a franchise calibre player at the OHL level. Expect Werenski to be selective with the teams he’ll report too, with the border cities close to his home in Detroit being preferred destinations
