Left shooting defenseman, Cole Bartnick, is known amongst the American teams as a player who has a fantastic natural ability. Along with this, Bartnick is known for having a good shot. Bartnick is at his best when he is making a simple play, whether it’s moving the puck, joining the play, or anything in between. With the 2022 OHL draft fast approaching, the time to kick things into high gear is now for Bartnick. Bartnick can always work on all of his skills, and thus, up his draft value over the next year. Based on his skillset, Bartnick could very much develop into a more offensive minded defenseman for an OHL team if his development goes well. While it is currently uncertain where Barnick will go during the draft, he should definitely get some looks as it gets close. He could be a very solid acquisition if he finds himself falling to the mid rounds, where any team should take a chance on him.
