by Eldon MacDonald

109. Adam Reid - “McDude” - LW - USA

Vitals: Size - 6’4”, 205 lb.; Shoots left; Born 29-Jan-93 - Chino Hills, CA
2010-11 Stats: 44-9-6-15-33 + U18 - 6-2-0-2-4-(+0)
105 - NHL Central Scouting's Final Rankings (80th North American skater)
108 - E-Mac's 2011 NHL Entry Draft Top 120
142 - Christopher Ralph's Top 210
Draft result:
Adam Reid is a guy who really hasn’t done it yet but he brings enough size (6’4), skating, hands, compete, physicality and hockey ability that many believe we have not seen near what he is capable of.

Here is what his coach in the US NTProgram, Ron Rolston, had to say about him at http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=541129Adam is a big, strong power forward. He skates really well and seems to get better every time he gets on the ice. One of his talents is he knows his strengths and plays to those strengths. He gets to the net well and his ability to drive the net without the puck is excellent. He's a competitor."
However, this California dude is going to have to get a whole stronger to bring out that inner power forward in the future when he goes to Northeastern. Definitely a project pick but the line of believers starts on the right.
