2020 NHL Draft Profile: Cole Perfetti


It was almost comical how many posts and crossbars Perfetti hit in the first month of the OHL season, but the dynamic winger still ended up with huge numbers for Saginaw.

Perfetti had a great showing at the CHL-Russia series, earning a WJC camp invite with Canada. He fell short of the final roster, but look for him to grab a key offensive role next year. “He’s a very smart player, that’s what sets him apart from other guys,” said one scout. “The biggest concern for most scouts is skating. For a guy his size, you probably want him to be more explosive, but he’s able to compensate because of his smarts. For me, it’s not a concern.”
