By Eldon MacDonald

83. Andrew Fritsch - “Mr. Attacker” - RW - Canada

Team: Owen Sound, OHL
2010-11 Stats: 60-28-35-63-18-(+17) + OHL playoffs - 7-0-2-2-(+3)

83 - Mac's 2011 NHL Entry Draft Top 120
84 Christopher Ralph's Top 210
85 - Cory Pronman's Top 100
110 - NHL Central Scouting's Final Rankings (84th North American skater)
Draft result:
155 - Phoenix Coyotes

Andrew Fritsch is an Owen Sound Attack player who has enough hockey sense, speed, shot and puck handling capabilities to be known as a premier attacker. Although not a big guy at 6’0 187 lb., Andrew is prepared to drive to the net and cause goals down low. Unfortunately, Andrew came down with an injury which has resulted in him missing most of the OHL playoffs.

Andrew plays on the Attack’s top line with Joey Hishon (Avalanche 1st rounder) and Garrett Wilson (Panther 4th rounder) and adds defense along with enough offense and energy to make the line one of the better lines in Major Junior this year. If it wasn’t for his average size, I would say second round for this all-around type player, however, third is more likely.
