A true leader on and off the ice, centreman Mason Korry wears the C for his team and leads by example. Korry is a smooth skating player overall, and has used it to be able to play both center or wing, depending on the circumstance. Korry packs a very good shot as well, with a solid right hand release, which gives him the ability to beat goalies, helping him become the teams leading point-getter. Korry is a player who shows up at the rink for every game and practice, and is constantly looking to improve his abilities further through his hard work and high compete level. Korry is encouraged to work on using his larger frame more, while also being able to recognize when to use his speed to beat the defenseman and drive wide along the boards. Korry has also been working hard on his decision making with the puck, by assessing when and when not to pass the puck, as sometimes he can get caught in a scenario where he should have done the opposite. With the 2022 OHL draft quickly approaching, Korry could likely see himself going in the mid to later rounds. Despite this, Korry still has great upside to become an OHL caliber player, providing his development goes well. Korry’s draft stock should be raised slightly due to his C/W status, which most teams will value quite heavily, alongside his leadership ability. Through hard work, Korry could see himself in more of a bottom 6 role, where he could pitch in with the team's depth scoring, while possibly working to use his speed to force the play and take advantage for both himself and his teammates. Korry could be a bit of a hidden gem, but he could also be a bit of a project player as well, it all depends on where he’s at with his game by the end of the season.
