One of the better forwards from the SCTA, Andrew Vermeulen is basically a lock to be one of the higher round picks in the 2022 OHL draft. Formerly playing for Southern Tier, Vermeulen decided to take his talents to the Niagara North Stars, where he was producing at well over a point per game pace in both the regular season and especially the playoffs and OHL cup. Vermeulen has an amazing offensive ability, with solid hands and strong edges, allowing him to cut then go wide, and while he is not the most explosive forward, he’s effective. Vermeulen also is capable of using his large frame quite well, using it to muscle guys off the puck, or displaying extremely high puck protection skills. Vermeulen is not someone who will shy away from danger either, putting his body on the line to block a shot, or sticking up for one of his teammates. Vermeulen has been working the most on his skating, which could use some improvement, which, if corrected, would amplify the young forwards offensive capabilities even further. Vermeulen is seen as a leader amongst his teammates, and displays amazing poise, alongside a patient yet feisty attitude on the ice. With Vermeulen being one of the most highly touted SCTA forwards for the coming draft, it would not be surprising to see him in the league sooner rather than later, where he could use his size and skill as a middle to top 6 winger as a sort of complimentary piece who can provide additional support to his teammates in all zones of the ice.
