As it stands, goaltender Nate Gillis, is currently slated to be the number one in Markham this coming season. While he is a bigger goalie, he has actually lost a bit of weight as of late. Gillis’ biggest strength is simply that he is an enigma amongst goalies. While he may let in the occasional soft goal or two, he has a habit of being able to stop pucks that most goalies probably wouldn’t have stopped, and most likely he shouldn’t have caught it either, yet he did. This both serves as a strength and weakness, as, while it is pretty nice to have a goalie who can make a Marc-Andre Fleury type of save, he needs to be able to get the ones that he should have as well. It is completely unknown where Gillis could go in the 2022 OHL draft, especially since he is a goalie, which would push him down further as goalies don’t typically go high in big groups, and there isn’t usually a high amount of goalies that do get selected. If Gillis continues to improve, however, he could push his was into the conversation as one of the goalies that finds himself drafted in 2022
