Greater Kingston Junior Gaels
Reed Gee, a right shooting defenseman, plays a big game. He’s big and he’s mean. His physical game has the potential to turn the tide of a game in one big hit. His shot is hard, and he is a great skater. Despite all of the offensive benefits, Gee is more of a shutdown style of defender, using his physicality to punish anyone who wishes to cross the blue line. Gee is also featured on the teams Penalty Killing unit. The biggest thing for Gee to work on is trying to find an identity for himself, and what kind of player he wants to be. Obviously, he has upside on both sides of the game, but due to his size, but also his great game in his own zone, Gee would be best suited to playing a more defensive style of game. One comparison to how Gee plays would be fellow right handed, Canadian defenseman, Braden Schneider. While quieter in nature, Gee can take a lot of heat. You can be hard on him as much as you want, but he will look you in the eyes while you are talking to him. Expect Gee to go somewhere in the early to middle rounds of the draft, where he could develop into a good skating, defensive defenseman in the OHL. There is a lot of defensive upside to this player, so keep an eye out.
