Moore listed as a candidate for a top 10 pick
Oliver Moore — C, U.S. NTDP, 5-foot-10
You’ll notice all three of the U.S. NTDP forwards included here are centres. And next season, once Stramel goes off to college, the expectation will be that Moore and Will Smith (more on him below) will carry the load offensively at the program as a 1-2 punch down the middle. Moore impressed me on my November trip to Plymouth to watch the U18 team play (he was up from the U17 team and played well) and I’ve really liked what I’ve seen whenever I’ve watched him on tape as well. Moore wants to hang onto the puck and make plays, he’s got an impressive one-timer from the right flank, and he uses some clever movement patterns to make defencemen miss and get to his spots as a shooter.
That’s impressive for that draft class
