Despite not having played at the AAA level since Peewee, right shot Cooper Love is cementing himself as a rising player for the 2022 OHL draft. Since returning to AAA, Love has stepped in as the teams defacto number one defenseman, bringing a great offensive game, but also a solid defensive game, where he sits as the number two option defensively. Love is deployed in every scenario, being the teams power play quarterback, as well as manning the penalty kill as well. Love brings an extremely high endurance to the table, being able to log 40 minutes a night when needed. Recent;y, Love was also awarded an A for his leadership ability, proving there is more there than just a good hockey player. Love is a player who is continuously getting better each game, which has been seen already since his return to the AAA game. Regarding the OHL, Love is a tricky player to place at the moment as he is constantly improving his stock, but he lacks the long term AAA standard that the rest of the draft class holds. The best prediction for Love is somewhere in the middle rounds, where he could likely come into the league a couple years after his draft as a smooth two way defenseman that can be relied upon in various scenarios.
