Scouting report

In his OHL draft year, Eric Cornel was a highly sought after asset from the Upper Canada Cyclones and the Petes invested into that notion by selecting him with the 3rd Overall Pick. Fast forward a season and to be frank, there are a lot of question marks heading into Year 2. The right-shot center has good size at 6-foot-2 but really struggled with the physical side of the game as his 175-pound frame really limited his impact last year. A native of Kemptville, Ont., Cornel has excellent vision and is a very adept playmaker - an impressive combination when you factor in his size. He has the ability to make those around him better and plays a polished game for a young player. The first half will really dictate what Cornel's sophomore season has in store for him, making it important for him to have a quick start and help the Petes make their way back to respectability.
