Andrew Fritsch: A Guy You Should Know

Owen Sound winger Andrew Fritsch was skipped on the OHL playoff roundup post, but friend of blog Dominic Tiano, who has his own OHL Draft Prospects blog was nice enough to share some info on the Brantford, Ontario native.

Fritsch scored 28 goals and 63 points this season in 60 games this season, split between Niagara and the Attack after being the Ice Dogs's third-round OHL pick two years ago. As a rookie with Niagara last season, he scored 11 goals and 18 points, so he's had quite a jump in production.

He only has average size at 6-0 and about 180 pounds, but he's managed to open some eyes as a player with some skill and upside.

Dominic shared this tidbit with us about Fritsch:

"I would say (he's a) goal scorer probably known more for his playmaking. Think he's around 6 feet but plays a power forward game. Good skater not tremndous speed. Goes to the net can score the dirty goals or finesse goals. Decent shot."

For more on Fritsch, you can follow this link to Dom's blog and get a little more on him, but he had a pretty productive season for a 17-18-year-old playing on a good team, so he's worth keeping an eye on as a sleeper/mid-rounder. He hasn't done much to make an impact in the OHL playoffs, having played only four games for the Attack and posting 2 assists during that span.
