Left shooting defenseman, Aiden Cormack, is the 1D on the Halton Hurricanes. Though he is already 6’0, Cormack is expected to continue growing, as both his parents are rather tall and his dad is a big guy himself. He has great feet, his transition game is exceptional and he moves laterally very well. Cormack is someone who can walk the blue line very well, and plays with an offensive mindset, so he will not hesitate to jump into the rush if the chance comes. One of the standout features about Cormack is his ability to play both the right side or the left side. The Hurricanes roster is dominated by left handed defensemen, so it’s not uncommon to spot Cormack playing on the right side instead of the left. Cormack also packs a pretty decent shot. Cormack also has excellent defensive stick work, so he packs a pretty decent defensive game to go along with his excellent offensive instincts. Cormack’s biggest issue right now lies in his confidence and his assertiveness. When his confidence is there, he is an excellent hockey player, however, if his confidence is lacking, that is when he tends to get into trouble. Cormack is being encouraged heavily over these issues, and is working on his confidence. Cormack serves as one of Halton’s assistant captains, and brings leadership to a team. He is an extremely hard worker, and has been described as top 3 on his team with work ethic, as well as the teams hardest worker, and can be seen at the gym frequently, and working hard in practice. Cormack is ultra competitive and, like his peers, dreams of making the OHL day in and day out. Cormack could project out as an offensive OHL defenseman, and if he continues to grow, can really add a bit more physicality to his game as he continues to grow, using his large frame to protect the puck and push his opponents around.
