Niagara North Stars
Left shooting forward, Luca Testa, is most definitely a hard to miss player in the SCTA. Testa is one of a small group of players in the league where teams are on high alert whenever he steps out onto the ice. Testa is a big, strong, and lean forward who can play either wing or center, and has great quickness and agility to boot. Testa displays amazing hockey IQ to the point where his skills and smarts are what separates him from the other players in the league. Testa has displayed amazing leadership skills this year, constantly taking the lead in team calls, and is currently continuing to develop a strong set of leadership skills. Testa is a strong skater who plays on the teams power play unit, however he is still working on his stride. Testa has also been working hard on his play in the defensive zone as well and is starting to learn that the higher level hockey is more of a give and go style, so he is learning how to play that style of game more. The biggest need would be for Testa to continue growing and maturing as he gets older, but as of now, Testa is already cementing himself as a player who is in the argument to be a higher selection. Whoever selects Testa will be in for a treat, because there is a lot of upside with this player, and if he continues to keep up his pace and improve, he could become a real force on the ice. Odds are, Testa will develop into a middle to top 6 OHL winger if development goes well, but as of now, everything is extremely uncertain as to his ceiling, his floor and any other factor that comes with a player.
