North American Skater - Sault Ste. Marie, OHL





HEIGHT: 6' 0"


BORN: May 31, 1996

HOMETOWN: Stratford, Ont.

BORN IN: Stratford, ON, CAN

DRAFTED: 2014: VAN (1st Round / 24th Overall)

• McCann finished second on Sault Ste. Marie in goals (27) and points (62) during the 2013-14 season. In 2012-13, he received Ontario Hockey League All-Rookie Second Team honors after recording 44 points (21-23—44) in 64 games.

• He won a gold medal with Team Canada at the 2013 Under-18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial and bronze at the 2014 Under-18 World Championship. McCann also represented Ontario at the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.

• He scored the game-winning goal for Team Orr in a 4-3 win over Team Cherry at the 2014 CHL Top Prospects Game.

• McCann is a superstitious player who hops into a cold tub before every game, a tradition he started while in a slump after hearing NHLers Rick Nash and John Mitchell do the same. McCann finished with a hat trick the first time he tried it, and has done so every game since.

• He wears No. 19 and models his game after the two-way style of Jonathan Toews.

"I've never thought about being a Vancouver Canuck. It is what it is."


He looked pretty nervous in that interview, I don't think he meant anything by it. Just didn't know what to say or what to do with the mic.

Very young kid though.

Might be intimidated of or not fond of being so far from home at his age. Or disappointed he dropped. He'll mature.

If he doesn't come around, we can always trade him.

The only thing I really care about is that he develops well.

When I spoke about redundancy getting Bonino back

This is exactly what i was speaking of.

Yet another solid 2 way player another solid 2 way center...

Cassels, Bonino, Lain, Horvat, Matthias, MacCann, Gaunce....

And on RW Grenier

on LW Shinkaruk and Virtanen....

This is confusing in regards to organizational depth and need

That being said welcome to the fold Jared McCann.

But...just a question, it is what it is?

When you get drafted int eh 1st round you put on your happy face and act like someone who just got the frigging world handed to him. Not a good start with the kind of fans you have to deal with. Seriously bud at least show some enthusiasm for basically being handed a near million dollar ELC


Glad he clarified that. This fan base was questioning him hard about that.
